Reddit: Lyrics pop up

Tuesday 5th of August 2014 03:49:57 AM

I am looking for a lyrics pop up window that will hopefully render me most the lyrcs of my songs I listen to. I use Clementine but Was wondering if there is a different app out there that will show the lyrics, i would rather find a totally independent one cause I switch distros every once in a while. The main thing I would want it to do it popup on the screen and stay on top just to see the lyrics instead of me searching for them all the time. Please let me know if there is something I am unaware of, thanks!

Reddit: Where can I find linux help?

Tuesday 5th of August 2014 02:48:54 AM

This seems like such a simple question, but I've used windows all my life, and am a pretty proficient user, I've really never needed to ask for help or how to do something, but with Linux I'm really flying blind and I'm not really sure where to turn. Are there any subreddits/sites that are good for extremely new Linux user's questions?

LinuxInsider: Beating the Bushes for the Best Linux Browsers

Tuesday 5th of August 2014 01:53:55 AM
Browsers have been a hot topic lately here in the Linux blogosphere, not just because of all the woes plaguing Tor in recent weeks, but also because of the increasingly worried mumbling about Firefox's future. It's been difficult to discern where a FOSS fan should turn for his or her Internet browsing needs, so it was with great relief that Linux Girl recently came upon an article dedicated to that very topic. Web browsers for the Linux desktop have evolved over the years, said Datamation's Matt Hartley.

Reddit: Does anybody have a WORKING configuration of xl2tpd in client VPN mode?

Tuesday 5th of August 2014 01:53:50 AM

I've got it basically working, but I can't get it to read username/password from my l2tp-secrets file properly. I have to hardcode name/password in the xl2tpd.options file. I also don't have routing setup properly. My traffic doesn't flow through the VPN tunnel by default. If you have something working, would you mind sharing your config files so I can compare against them?

TuxMachines: The Linux desktop-a-week review: MATE

Tuesday 5th of August 2014 01:50:22 AM

One thing that MATE has in common with both Enlightenment and Awesome is the general peppiness. Everything in MATE is just plain snappy and light on resource usage. And you could say that memory/CPU usage isn't a huge deal with modern hardware. But, in my testing on this i5 with 8 gigs of RAM, MATE is so much more responsive than GNOME Shell, KDE or Unity that it's just plain silly.

TuxMachines: The cloud might be the key to the triumph of desktop Linux

Tuesday 5th of August 2014 01:48:17 AM

There's no denying the power and utility value of the cloud. We all use it and it's certainly something that most Linux users can appreciate. However, I disagree with the basic premise of the article that Linux "Linux needs...a major win in the desktop arena." Why? Linux is alive and well, and doing just fine without having tons of desktop market share.

I'm not sure where this obsession with market share comes from, but I think it's an altogether unhealthy thing. And it's particularly bad when you consider that mobile devices have been chipping away steadily at desktop usage across all platforms. I'd much rather see Linux offer more mobile device options than trying to go on some quixotic quest to gain desktop market share when most users are moving away from the desktop anyway.

The author uses Chromebooks as an example, and I can understand his affection for them. For what they do they are fine computing devices, and their popularity can't be questioned at this point (as always see Amazon's list of bestselling laptops to see just how popular they are right now). But we already have Chromebooks, so why do we need a Linux "cloudbook?"
