The Many Faces Of Ubuntu

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu may just be one of the most popular distributions that the Linux community has developed over the past 5 years. What has made this distribution so popular is not only is it available for free download but you can also get a free CD mailed to you as well. This makes it easy for those who do not or don’t know how to burn a CD image of a .iso file. Overall the folks at Ubuntu have made it easy to try their product. It can be run as a live CD and also installed on a hard disk.

But there is more to the Ubuntu community than just free CD’s. They also have some of the best Linux forums on the Internet. Since most people who are using Ubuntu are new users, help is available at many of the forums that the Ubuntu community supports. Also there is something else that makes Ubuntu different. The user has a choice of different versions of the Ubuntu product.

  • A history about Gtk+, Vulkan and Wayland
    A few weeks ago, I was curious to test Gtk+ 4. I know it has some awsome features like OpenGL rendering, major cleanups and other hot stuff, but didn’t have the chance to check it out until then. I was mostly excited about Vulkan. I know both of my laptop’s graphic cards support Vulkan. It’s a hybrid Intel Broadwell G2 + NVidia GeForce 920M, although I don’t use the latter because Linux sucks hard with Dual GPU. Downloaded the latest Gtk+ source, compiled and… nothing. Immediate segmentation fault. Yay! What a great chance to get involved with the next major Gtk+ version development!
  • GNOME Developer On GTK4: State-of-the-Art of Toolkit Support
    GNOME developer Georges Stavracas has shared his thoughts on the state of the GTK4 tool-kit with the recent work involving a Vulkan renderer, including which also now works on Wayland. Georges Stavracas was excited to try the current state of GTK4 development but initially hit a segmentation fault. But after overcoming that, he was successful in running GTK4 on Wayland and the widgets being rendered by Vulkan. He commented on his blog, "May not be as exciting, since there are no new visible features but… damn, it’s Gtk+ being rendered with Vulkan on Wayland. It’s basically the state-of-the-art of toolkit support right now. Even better, the absolute majority of applications will gain this for free once they port to Gtk+ 4 series."
