Phoronix: RoundCube Next Hasn't Seen Any Commits So Far In 2017

Monday 10th of April 2017 04:32:26 PM
Last September we wrote about RoundCube-Next being woefully behind schedule even after they raised more than one hundred thousand dollars for this massive overhaul to the RoundCube webmail software. Sadly, not much has changed since and the project has yet to see any Git commits in 2017...

Reddit: Why is there a lack of quality customization options for KDE?

Monday 10th of April 2017 04:09:21 PM

Coming to OpenSUSE from Arch with GNOME, I found that KDE is seriously lacking in terms of customization. GNOME, due to gtk, has so many quality themes : Adapta, Flat-Plat, Arc and its numerous derivatives, but the only notable theme I was able to find on KDE was of Arc-KDE.

I am liking KDE on OpenSUSE due to its responsiveness and speed, but the lack of themes is off-putting. Is this lack of themes due to usage of different architecture or something else?

Reddit: 100+ GNU grep examples and exercises based tutorial

Monday 10th of April 2017 03:27:57 PM

Link: GNU grep

  • Examples are given for most options, including some options like --no-group-separator which are mentioned in info grep but not found in man grep
  • Regular expressions covered in more detail and includes examples for PCRE as well

I am also trying to build something to let users solve questions right from command line itself. Finished grep exercises today, 89 questions across 16 sections, please go through readme before starting.

Link: grep exercises

I would be updating the repo with other command line text processing tools like sed, awk, perl, sort, etc in coming months... Would be great help if you can give feedback on both the examples as well as the exercises...

Reddit: Stuck in "Check installation media" (X-post /r/openSUSE)

Monday 10th of April 2017 03:17:53 PM

I'm trying to install openSUSE Leap on my new laptop.

First I downloaded "openSUSE-Leap-42.2-DVD-x86_64.iso" from here https://software.opensuse.org/422/en and used Etcher to make a bootable USB drive on an old 8GB Kingston DataTraveler. After flashing Etcher check the drive successfully, but I decided to run "Check installation media" just in case.

There was a screen with green loading bar at the bottom. The bar loaded to 100% and I started waiting, because in the docs said "In case the check was successful, the normal installation routine starts. If a corrupt media is detected, the installation routine aborts". After 15 minutes I pressed Esc to details of the progress and in the past 40-50 minutes the screen is stuck like this.

What should I do? Can I damage something if I shut down holding the power button? Any help is appreciated

The laptop is Asus K550V / i7-6700HQ, 8GB RAM, GTX 950m and trial Win10 on one partition.

Reddit: I see a lot of criticism of GNOME devs, but never their own perspective or responses. Anyone know why?

Monday 10th of April 2017 12:36:47 PM

I've heard people say that GNOME devs:

  1. Think their users are stupid and don't know what's best for them.
  2. Are hostile to outside contributions and feedback (from the community, but also e.g. from Canonical).
  3. Use their position to push Red Hat technologies like systemd.
  4. Are in their own bubble and are very out of touch with the Linux ecosystem (one person recently said that a GNOME dev was not aware of the existence of XFCE; I'm not sure how that happens).

But I've never head GNOME devs reply to these criticisms (or any of the others). Does anyone know why that is, or where I could find them sticking up for themselves or explaining their take on their decisions or on whatever controversy?
