    Stacey helps you monitor system resource usage, clear app caches, uninstall unwanted apps, and even stop system processes from running in the background.

  • Open source software tools of DevOps

    Unlike most technology trends, DevOps’ focus is on the collaborative elements of delivery infrastructure bringing together software developers – those who know exactly why they are building a particular piece of software – and operations personnel – those who are maintaining the IT infrastructure. Bridging the silos between the two sides, the early pioneers of DevOps were hoping this would enable IT professionals to make better judgments about how to deploy and integrate software more effectively.

  • 5 DevOps Tools for Logging and Monitoring

    Enter the new wave of powerful open logging and monitoring solutions. Some of these focus on targeted tasks, such as container cluster monitoring and performance analysis, while others qualify as holistic monitoring and alerting toolkits, capable of multi-dimensional data collection and querying.

TuxMachines: Leftovers: KDE

Wednesday 1st of February 2017 02:22:02 AM
  • Neon OEM Mod…arghhh

    For years and years already Ubuntu’s installer, Ubiquity, has an OEM mode. And for years and years I know it doesn’t really work with the Qt interface.

    An understandable consequence of not actually having any real-life use cases of course, disappointing all the same. As part of the KDE Slimbook project I took a second and then a third look at the problems it was having and while it still is not perfect it is substantially better than before.

  • KDE Plasma 5.9 Desktop Launches with Global Menus, Better Wayland Support

    Today, January 30, 2017, KDE had the great pleasure of announcing the release and general availability of the KDE Plasma 5.9 desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems.

    The development cycle of KDE Plasma 5.9 took only a few months, but considering the fact that it's not a long-term supported (LTS) version like KDE Plasma 5.8, which is the recommended version right now for all users, we think that it's a pretty hefty update adding quite a bunch of new features and improving Wayland support.

  • KDE Plasma 5.9 Released, This Is What’s New
  • KDE Plasma 5.9 Hits The Web With Global Menus, Better Wayland Support

    KDE Plasma 5.9 introduces interactive previews for notifications, drag-and-drop improvements throughout the desktop, window switching in the task manager using Meta + number shortcuts, Breeze styling improvements, Global Menus have returned to the KDE desktop, general theme and UI improvements, a new network configuration module, and continued work on Wayland support.

    I want to get a better feel for CSS, so Máirín Duffy (Mo) and I spent three hours last week figuring out how to moving a pixel perfect mockup to CSS.

So I want to attempt to learn and understand the linux environment as much as possible. So where do I go from there? I don't know really how to code but I want to try and work with it to some extent so I can development a comfortable work space. Such as working with tools as Openbox or awesome.

I would bet that whoever is best at managing and influencing the open source supply chain will be best positioned to create the most innovative products. In this article, I’ll explain why you should be a supply chain influencer, and how your organization can be an active participant in your supply chain.In my previous article, Open source and the software supply chain, I discussed the basics of supply chain management, and where open source fits in this model. I left readers with this illustration of the model:read more

Reddit: How do you confirm computer components are Linux compatible when building a PC?

Wednesday 1st of February 2017 12:25:49 AM

I'm trying to build a PC that will run only Linux. I have heard that researching and making sure your parts are compatible with Linux is important to this process, but I cannot find any sort of confirmation on any parts that I have found.

So far I have only been searching for a motherboard (that's as far as I've gotten) using PCPartPicker.com. I have researched a number of motherboards trying to figure out if they will work with Linux and I cannot find anything.

I've tried using Linux Mint's Hardware Database and Ubuntu's Component catalog but everything I am finding on those seem to be either 5 years old and only for sale used or not for sale at all.

I feel like I'm missing something here.

So how can I verify that these parts will work with Linux before I spend money on them?

Desktop GNU/Linux/Chromebook

  • A Minimal Chrome OS Theme for Tint2
    I used to (and sort-of-still-do, I guess) run a sister site focused on Google Chrome, Chromecast and Chromebooks, i.e. the Chrome ecosystem. As such I am a fan of Chromebooks and Chrome OS, a Linux-based distribution based on Gentoo. The appearance of Chrome OS has waxed and waned in sync with Google’s ambitions and positioning for the OS, going form hyper-minimal to a full desktop clone (with the desktop-y Chrome Apps platform) through to a Material Design inspired Android + Chrome hybrid today.
  • Off-The-Shelf Hacker: Linux for Cheap Hardware, Then and Now
    Most people, don’t realize how prolific Linux has become. With the Embedded Linux Conference just a week away, I’ve been reflecting on how Linux has provided a sort of computing “circle of life” experience for me. It’s powered my computational hardware 20 years ago and continues to do so today.

  • Picard 1.4 released

  • Linux Digital Audio Workstations: Open Source Music Production
    Linux Digital Audio Workstations When most people think of music programs, they’ll usually think Mac OS or Windows. However, there are also a few Linux digital audio workstations. The support and features of these programs can vary, but they’re a good choice to setup a cheap recording studio. Some of them are even good competitors for paid programs, offering features such as multitrack recording, MIDI, and virtual instruments. Keep in mind that many audio editing programs for Linux rely on the Jack backend. You’ll need a dedicated system to install these programs on, since it doesn’t work properly in a virtual machine. In the following article, we’ll cover audio editing programs that are available for Linux. We’ll talk about the available features, as well as help you decide which program to use for your needs.

    For the most part, they’re wrong. Command-line image tools do much of what their GUI counterparts can, and they can do it just as well. Sometimes, especially when dealing with multiple image files or working on an older computer, command-line tools can do a better job. Let’s take a look at four command-line tools that can ably handle many of your basic (and not-so-basic) image manipulation tasks.

  • Qt 5.10 To Have Built-In Vulkan Support
    With Qt 5.8 there was experimental Direct3D 12 support that left some disappointed the toolkit didn't opt for supporting Vulkan first as a cross-platform, high-performance graphics API. Fortunately, with Qt 5.10, there will be built-in Vulkan support. Going back nearly one year there has been Vulkan work around Qt while with Qt 5.10 it's becoming a reality. However, with Qt 5.9 not even being released until the end of May, Qt 5.10 isn't going to officially debut until either the very end of 2017 or early 2018.
