LXer: The Perfect Desktop - Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn)

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 09:22:31 PM
This tutorial shows how you can set up an Ubuntu 14.10 (Utopic Unicorn) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do thethings they do on their Windows desktops. The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM restrictions that works even on oldhardware, and the best thing is: all software comes free of charge.

Reddit: non guru blog site where copy-pasting to get something to just work without full understanding isn't a bad thing

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 09:15:22 PM

I'm documenting the horrible procedure (to me) of building the targetcli package from sources on Centos 7 which I really don't like so far (coming from Ubuntu)

Using Centos because QLogic Linux packages are stupidly only released for RHEL.

Anyway...So I will put it on my blog site when I have time (I say my site but it doesn't exist yet) which is really only for me to reference, but if anyone else finds it useful then so be it.

On many other blogs with bash commands the writers precede the commands with the $ to indicate - $ <bash command>

I figured I wasn't going to do this on mine as that will break copying and pasting a list of commands to achieve some desired outcome...which for me will just be for reference to achieve that same outcome on some other system.

Now the best blogs explain what each command in a listing does and have some nice font formatting to boot, but I don't mind a bit of copy pasting (great to use the &&) without full understanding, especially when I'm trying to quickly achieve something in testing in some virtual environment that can easily be restored from a snapshot if said commands make things go tits up.

Probably guess I'm fairly new to Linux ('bout 4 yrs...mostly loving the XP so far), so I wanted to ask more experienced hands how best to present written out bash commands.

Cheers.

Reddit: How to use smartcard or sdcard instead of typed passwort?

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 08:46:14 PM

I try to find a solution to use a smartcard or sdcard for system encryption instead of a typed password. The motivation is that i do not want to remember a real strong password. I searched the web, but can not find a solution to do it in Linux. Has anyone an idea what to search for or know any tutorials, anything?

Thank you in advance!

LinuxInsider: LG's WebOS: 3rd Time's the Charm?

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 08:42:17 PM
LG turned up at last week's CES with a smartwatch that apparently runs webOS. LG used the watch to unlock an Audi at the show. "LG has never officially confirmed that we were planning a webOS smartwatch," said company spokesperson Ken Hong. "I think that is speculation based on the watch that Audi announced here at CES, which we developed but have not finalized the OS for." LG makes no mention of the wearable on its site, but the smartwatch reportedly has a dialer, a messages app, music functionality, a calendar, email and a health app.

TuxMachines: Open-Source Radeon Driver Reworks Audio Code, Adds DisplayPort Audio

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 08:27:31 PM

Sadly there's nothing new to report on the awaited AMDGPU kernel driver for supporting the R9 285 Tonga and newer GPUs that's needed for the new AMD unified Linux driver approach. Due to the change last year in how DRM-Next is handled, there's just one or two weeks left before the 3.20 DRM merge window will close. The AMDGPU driver would also have to go through public review by upstream developers outside of AMD, which already would make this new driver more like a Linux 3.21 (or later) feature. At least for 3.20 there's other changes worth getting excited over.

TuxMachines: Three Pillars Of Open Source Governance

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 08:19:30 PM

Open source software has morphed from its underground DIY roots to become a common tool that runs essential parts of many businesses. In turn, commercial companies have sprung up around open source projects. These companies make money offering updates, support, and services.

The intersection of open source and commercial interests raises questions about authority, authenticity, and culture.

Is the project driven by the commercial sponsor or outside contributors? Will commercial interests trump the wishes of the community? How and where do you draw lines between a commercial entity and the open source community?

LXer: When the Greatest Generation Can Use Our Help

Tuesday 13th of January 2015 07:28:09 PM
The computer was a three-year-old Dell running Windows 7 Home Premium. Jack told me it had gotten so slow that he had to do something to fix it. A couple of days later came a late-night commercial touting “WinCleaner” as the key to opening the door of renewed computer speed. It was offered as a thumb drive, preloaded with the very same tools that can be found in CCleaner and other Windows malady cure-alls that have been around for years, but without the flashy GUI inside an even more flashy flash drive.

Linux Desktop Evolution: Minor, Invisible, or Aesthetic

In the last two years, the Linux desktop has settled into a period of quiet diversity. The user revolts of 2008-2012 are safely in the past, and users are scattered among at least seven major desktops -- Cinnamon, GNOME, KDE,LXDE, MATE, Unity, and Xfce -- and likely to stay that way. So what comes next? What will the next innovations on the desktop be? Where will they come from? Prediction is as safe as investing in penny mining stocks, but some major trends for the next couple of years seem obvious without the bother of a tarot reading. Read more
