TuxMachines: Is 2017 the Year of the Linux Desktop?

Wednesday 28th of December 2016 09:59:39 AM

The entire idea of one year or another being the year of the Linux desktop has become an insider joke among many within the FoSS community. The reason: the entire concept is deeply personal. What was a good year for the Linux desktop for one person might not have been for someone else.

For example, I'd suggest that the year that Knoppix Linux became popular was clearly the Year of the Linux desktop. For the first time, anyone who wanted to try Linux on their PC without installing it, could do so very easily. A lot of people believe the first live distros were Ubuntu in nature when it fact, Debian inspired Knoppix and later Simply Mepis were among the first.

In recent years, we've seen changes to the Linux desktop that have surprisingly outperformed my expectations.

Reddit: No sound from audio jack on Elementary OS

Wednesday 28th of December 2016 08:45:40 AM

So I took the leap into the world of Linux today to test out cross platform programming and decided I would use Elementary OS (Loki). I'm loving it so far, but I have a problem. No sound is playing from my speaker (3.5 audio jack). I was hoping someone could help me out here as I'm new to the Linux world and don't quite know what I'm doing.

Note: I'm running the distro on a Windows 7 PC through VMWare Workstation Pro.

Wednesday 28th of December 2016 04:14:16 AM

Hello Fellow linux lovers, I've recently purchased two monitors. One is An LG ultrawide and the other is an LG 21.5in monitor. Both are using HDMI connections. However, whenever I try to boot to Kali using grub booter or even usb with kali live it tells me my monitor is out of range at 60hz.
