LXer: Welcome to the Pre-Post-PC Era

Thursday 25th of December 2014 08:53:59 AM
One more prediction: Upon sailing through the Post-PC era, there will be a post-Post-PC era, after the advent of the pre-post-Post-PC era, where people will start thinking, “You know, I had a laptop (or desktop…or both) once where I didn’t have to strain my eyes on such a small screen, and where I actually got stuff done rather than just wasting time.” Or something like that.

Reddit: Why do you love Linux & FOSS?

Thursday 25th of December 2014 02:14:26 AM

What do you like the most? To me, it's the fact that it furthers innovation. That the technology created is a common, public good, rather than something controlled by a limited few. I like that I'm in control. That I can "pop open the hood" and look at a project's source code, if it piques my interest or if there's a bug that I just have to squash.

So what about you? What do you like most about Linux and FOSS?

Reddit: More customizable version of git?

Thursday 25th of December 2014 01:19:49 AM

Is there a simple program similar to git, where you give it a repo and a configuration file on how the repo is structured, and it will download and extract tar / zip files? If not how would I get started making such a thing? I know C but not enough to get started and such a big project.

TuxMachines: Leaked videos, screenshots reveal an HTC One running Android Lollipop

Wednesday 24th of December 2014 11:14:20 PM

No, you won’t get this gift in time for Christmas, but perhaps seeing an HTC One running Lollipop may make the wait slightly less painful.

A batch of videos and screenshots show HTC’s flagship with the newest build of Android, though of course it’s merged with the Sense 6.0 user interface (the HTC One currently runs Sense 5.0). We got a small hint of how Lollipop looks on the One in November, but this leak lays out what the entire operating system makeover looks in clearer detail.

Reddit: Perl, the great OS independent language

Wednesday 24th of December 2014 10:02:22 PM

They just shift the problem to the libraries, which are still very OS dependent:

[localhost] ./ Can't load '/mnt/tools/perl/perl-5.20.0/lib/site_perl/5.20.0/x86_64-linux/auto/XML/Parser/Expat/' for module XML::Parser::Expat: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory at /mnt/tools/perl/perl-5.20.0/lib/5.20.0/x86_64-linux/ line 193. at /mnt/tools/perl/perl-5.20.0/lib/site_perl/5.20.0/x86_64-linux/XML/ line 18.

Your Old Computer Can Live Again with Emmabuntüs 2

Emmabuntüs 2 1.09, a distribution created for reconditioning old computers and relying on the robustness of Xubuntu 12.04.5 LTS, has been released and is now ready for download. The Emmabuntüs developers only use LTS editions of Xubuntu, and that means they actually have two distros out right now that are maintained and improved. We had Emmabuntüs 3 1.0 released a few weeks ago, but that one was using Xubuntu 14.04 LTS as the base. Now, the old branch based on Xubuntu 12.04, Emmabuntüs 2, has been improved as well and the devs have made quite a few changes. Read more

11 years developing Krita

Back in 2003 Krita had never been released and the application was only able to do some very crude painting. I think the main reason that I started contributing to Krita back then was that I was much more comfortable with the single window UI and the fact that it used Qt/KDE and C++. In the early days I would never have imagined that I would be still with the project after 10+ years and how big the project is now. Even that the project exists today is a miracle and result of many developers putting in effort without ever knowing how it would develop. For the first few years we had almost no users and the users that we had were die-hard KDE users. At the time that wasn’t a bad thing as it allowed us to do some radical changes and experiments. Many features that were developed during this time still provide the base for the current Krita. Read more
