Hey folks, we are using remmina for an RDP connection. But the remmina console doesnt grap the keyboard. The toolbar on top has an "Grap Keyboard" button. But how can we put this in the startscript? Our actual remmina pref looks like this

TuxMachines: CoreOS: A lean, mean virtualization machine

Tuesday 4th of November 2014 05:54:20 AM

CoreOS is a slimmed-down Linux distribution designed for easy creation of lots of OS instances. We like the concept.

CoreOS uses Docker to deploy applications in virtual containers; it also features a management communications bus, and group instance management.

Rackspace, Amazon Web Services (AWS), GoogleComputeEngine (GCE), and Brightbox are early cloud compute providers compatible with CoreOS and with specific deployment capacity for CoreOS. We tried Rackspace and AWS, and also some local “fleet” deployments.

TuxMachines: [New] Technological Neutrality and Free Software

Tuesday 4th of November 2014 05:49:51 AM

Technological neutrality is the principle that the state should not impose preferences for or against specific kinds of technology. For example, there should not be a rule that specifies whether state agencies should use solid state memory or magnetic disks, or whether they should use GNU/Linux or BSD. Rather, the agency should let bidders propose any acceptable technology as part of their solutions, and choose the best/cheapest offer by the usual rules.

The principle of technological neutrality is valid, but it has limits. Some kinds of technology are harmful; they may pollute air or water, encourage antibiotic resistance, abuse their users, abuse the workers that make them, or cause massive unemployment. These should be taxed, regulated, discouraged, or even banned.

The principle of technological neutrality applies only to purely technical decisions. It is not “ethical neutrality” or “social neutrality”; it does not apply to decisions about ethical and social issues—such as the choice between free software and proprietary software.

TuxMachines: 10 best Linux distros: which one is right for you?

Tuesday 4th of November 2014 05:32:04 AM

Choice and flexibility are the hallmarks of a Linux distribution, and by extension the Linux ecosystem. With the proprietary Windows and OS X, you're stuck with the system as designed and can't make changes no matter how unpleasant you may find the experience. Linux distributions are free of such limitations.

Each distro has the Linux kernel at its core, but builds on top of that with its own selection of other components, depending on the target audience of the distro. Most Linux users switch between distros until they finally find the one that best suits their needs. However, for new and inexperienced users, the choice of hundreds of distros, with seemingly little to distinguish them, can seem challenging to say the least.

TuxMachines: Hackable drone controller runs Linux

Tuesday 4th of November 2014 04:52:53 AM

Gizmo for You has gone to Indiegogo to ask for $600 for a modular, Linux based “Open Source Remote Control” for UAVs and other remote-controlled craft.

Three years in the making, the Open Source Remote Control (OSRC) device is available in Indiegogo fixed-funding packages starting at 350 Euros ($600) for the basic version, or 1,250 Euros ($1,561) for an advanced version. The Linux-based OSRC device is designed to act as a hackable universal controller for all types of “drones, filming, UAV control and general RC.” It seems to be primarily aimed at high-end, hobbyist remote model airplanes.

Reddit: A thought on Plan 9 file servers and FUSE/CUSE

Tuesday 4th of November 2014 02:17:00 AM

So what Plan 9 does is implement user-space programs to create file systems. These are then mounted to create interfaces for I/O, e.x the Plan 9 window system Rio makes a file system that is in the mount namespace of all child processes, as a bind mount on /dev. Writing to /dev/window draws things on the window, reading /dev/mouse reads mouse input, etc. Even networks are different, all you have to do is read and write files in /net, no more ugly socket API calls.

But my question is, why hasn't anyone tried to do anything like this using FUSE/CUSE?
