The monthly Nitrux releases continue, and Nitrux 1.7.1 is here as what would appear a minor point release to last month’s Nitrux 1.7 update, but, in fact, it’s an important milestone as it ships with the latest and greatest Linux 5.15 LTS kernel by default.

Plagiarism at its best

My ideas, my writing, my headline... just in a different and badly interpreted manner... "itsubuntu.com" is NOT a blog site that should be encouraged in the future.

A dodgy site

I already knew it was a dodgy site, but I did not know just to what extent. Some sites did the same to Softpedia back in the days.

Took note, Rianne and I will remove the RSS feed.

On the upside, imitation can be some form of flattery. You're the "gold standard" to them.

  • How to Change HiDPI Scaling Settings on Linux

    For years, laptops and computer monitors have come with increasingly high-resolution displays. Text that looks great on a 1080p display can be too small and unreadable on a 4K one. Operating systems can upscale what's on-screen, but since 4K and other high-resolution screens come in many different sizes, there's no one-size-fits-all solution. Linux distributors have a particularly challenging time in part because Linux rarely comes pre-installed on devices. So, if you're a Linux user looking to tweak HiDPI settings, how do you go about this, and what do you need to know? Let's find out.

New Theme Brings libadwaita’s Sleek Looks to Older GTK Apps

This third-party theme back-ports the bulk of the libadwaita stylesheet to a regular GTK theme that works with GTK3 apps. As this theme is under active development you can’t be too picky if there are a few unpadded highlights or errant pixels; it’s not a 1:1 clone of what you seen in GNOME 42 screenshots (or any GTK4 libadwaita apps you currently use) but it’s a close enough approximation. Also: this is purely superficial; you won’t magically find GTK4 features, widgets, or animations nestled inside your GTK3 apps. Read more

Chrome and Mozilla: Privacy, Net Neutrality, and Firefox Changes

    Ultimately, that change in the way Google is looking at Chrome--that it isn't a tool that serves its users, but is a tool that serves up users to advertisers, albeit in a slightly more privacy protective way--is a bad sign. It's also the best reason to finally ditch it altogether.

  • In California, an Important Victory for Net Neutrality

    Today, the Ninth Circuit court upheld California’s net neutrality law, affirming that California residents can continue to benefit from the fundamental safeguards of equal treatment and open access to the internet.

Net neutrality matters, as much of our daily life is now online. It ensures that consumers are protected from ISPs blocking or throttling their access to websites, or creating fast lanes and slow lanes for popular services.
