TuxMachines: Razer Blade Stealth Laptop On Linux, Various Linux Laptop Performance Metrics

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 04:02:46 PM

Earlier this year Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan announced that Razer is planning better laptop support on Linux. He noted that more customers are requesting Linux support and they formed a goal of figuring out how to make "the best notebook in the world that supports Linux." Razer doesn't have any Linux laptop announcement to make yet, but for seeing the current state of affairs, they sent over the Razer Stealth laptop so we could put it through our Linux testing paces at Phoronix. Here is a look at the Razer Stealth ultrabook on Linux as well as a variety of interesting performance metrics, including some power metrics compared to Windows.

TuxMachines: Linux-based mobile access router features Cisco 5921 ESR

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 04:00:08 PM

Eurotech’s rugged, Linux-driven “BoltMAR 20-11” mobile access router offers Cisco 5921 ESR software, dual Ethernet ports, and WiFi, GPS, and cellular links.

As we write this, rescuers continue to ply the flooded streets of Houston looking for survivors of Hurricane Harvey. It occurs to us that Eurotech’s BoltMAR 20-11 might come in very handy in such a situation. Designed to showcase the Linux-driven Cisco 5921 Embedded Services Router(ESR) software, this entry-level, EN50155-compliant Mobile Access Router (MAR) “allows field-proven Cisco internetworking to be extended to enterprise fleet applications in the harshest mobile environments,” says Eurotech.

TuxMachines: Hands-on with Raspbian GNU/Linux Stretch for Raspberry Pi

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 03:57:40 PM

Well, isn't that just the way things go? I go away for a week (bicycling in northeast Holland, very nice) and a new release of Raspbian for the Raspberry Pi is announced. I shouldn't complain, though, because it gives me something to do as I adjust to my new life as an OAP.

The Raspbian GNU/Linux operating system for all models of Raspberry Pi systems has recently been updated, bringing the base to the recently released Debian 9 Stretch. The release announcement on the Raspberry Pi Blog gives a general overview, focusing mainly on application updates, and refers to the Debian 9 release notes for details about changes in the operating system itself.

LXer: Today is a Good Day to Learn Python

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 03:49:28 PM
The cool thing about Linux and FOSS is also an aggravating thing, which is that sometimes there's too much of a good thing. There is such an abundance of goodies that it can be overwhelming. So I am here to help you decide which programming language you should learn next, and that is Python. Oh, yes, it is.

Reddit: Ryzen, RAM, MOBO, Hell^H^H^H^H Help Please.

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 02:56:25 PM

I have been teetering on the brink of a ryzen upgrade to my aging PC for a few months now but the linux horror stories (probably blown out of proportion) are making me hesitate.

Can anyone give personal experience with linux on ryzen 7 and ddr4 3200 ram?

So far my plans are for a gigabyte mobo, and team t-force ddr4 3200. All I care about is stability, even if it means I underclock my ram until everything settles out.

Any and all thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Reddit: How to print without drivers in most cases

Wednesday 30th of August 2017 11:45:56 AM

If your printer is networked and has port 9100 open, you can probably send PostScript to it and have it print. For example:

nc printer 9100 < test.ps

You may need to kill nc with Control+C with some printers. (not tested well, had to with mine)

If you use LaTex, run latex file.tex; dvips file.dvi to make a PostScript file from your sources.

pdf2ps file.pdf file.ps works for PDF file conversion too.

KDE and GNOME: Kubuntu Site, Marble Maps, Kube in Randa, and UX in GNOME

  • Call for design: Artful Banner for Kubuntu.org website
    Kubuntu 17.10 — code-named Artful Aardvark — will be released on October 19th, 2017. We need a new banner for the website, and invite artists and designers to submit designs to us based on the Plasma wallpaper and perhaps the mascot design.
  • Randa 2017 Report – Marble Maps
    Just came back home yesterday from Randa Meetings 2017. This year, even though my major motive for the sprint was to use Qt 5.8’s Qt Speech module instead of custom Java for text-to-speech during navigation, that could not be achieved because of a bug which made the routes not appear in the app in the first place. And this bug is reproducible both by using latest code, and old-enough code, and is even there in the prod app in the Google Play Store itself. So, although most of my time had gone in deep-diving on the issue, unfortunately I was not able to find the root-cause to it eventually. I will need to pick up on that in the coming weeks again when I get time, to get it fixed.
  • Kube in Randa
    I’ve spent the last few days with fellow KDE hackers in beautiful Randa in the Swiss Mountains. It’s an annual event that focuses on a specific topic every year, and this time accessibility was up, so Michael and me made our way up here to improve Kube in that direction (and to enjoy the scenic surroundings of course).
  • Usability testing for early-stage software prototypes
    In this article, Ciarrai Cunneen and I describe how to do a paper-based usability test, using an early redesign of the GNOME Settings app as an example. The updated Settings features in GNOME 3.26, released on September 13. When writing open source software, we often obsess about making our logic elegant and concise, coming up with clever ways to execute tasks and demonstrate ideas. But we sometimes forget a key fact: Software is not useful if it is not easy to use. To make sure our programs can be used by our intended audience, we need usability testing. Usability is basically asking the question, "Can people easily use this thing?" or "Can real people use the software to do real tasks in a reasonable amount of time?" Usability is crucial to the creative process of building anything user-based. If real people can't use our software, then all the hard work of creating it is pointless. [...] In early 2016, GNOME decided to make a major UI update to its Settings application. This visual refresh shifts from an icon-based menu to drop-down lists and adds important changes to several individual Settings panels. The GNOME design team wanted to test these early-stage design changes to see how easily real people could navigate the new GNOME Settings application. Previously, GNOME relied on traditional usability tests, where users explore the software's UI directly. But this wouldn't work, since the software updates hadn't been completed.

  • FSFE Newsletter - September 2017

    To push our demand, the FSFE launched a new campaign last week: "Public Money Public Code". The campaign explains the benefits of releasing publicly funded Software under free licences with a short inspiring video and an open letter to sign. Furthermore, the campaign and the open letter will be used in the coming months until the European Parliament election in 2019 to highlight good and bad examples of publicly funded software development and its potential reuse.

  • Free Software Foundation Europe Leads Call For Taxpayer-Funded Software To Be Licensed For Free Re-use
    Considered objectively, it's hard to think of any good reasons why code that is paid for by the public should not be released publicly as a matter of course. The good news is that this "public money, public code" argument is precisely the approach that open access advocates have used with considerable success in the field of academic publishing, so there's hope it might gain some traction in the world of software too.
