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!submitted by n0hc
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?submitted by echocage

eWEEK: Docker sells its platform-as-a-service business to cloudControl to ensure that "dotCloud PaaS customers have a good home with an experienced PaaS provider."
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?submitted by paladine01
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.
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?"
Fedora.next, the major revamping of Fedora Linux, is shaping up to feature tight integration with container-based virtualization for the cloud, according to a recent discussion among developers of the open source operating system, which forms the basis for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).
MongoHQ and GoGrid have partnered to deliver a turnkey NoSQL MongoDB storage solution, which they say will make it easier to perform Big Data analytics with no major investment in time or resources.
Docky keeps crashing and I can't figure out why. What exactly does this error message mean, and how can I fix it? Or is it just an issue for the developer?Cairo.Surface is leaking, programmer is missing a call to Dispose Set MONO_CAIRO_DEBUG_DISPOSE to track allocation traces [Fatal 16:38:59.026] [GLib] Source ID 751 was not found when attempting to remove it submitted by ansabhailte
