Travelling with Linux - A Survival Kit

Filed under
Linux

When travelling on a business trip or extended vacation, not many can survive with just an Android smartphone or iOS device like an iPad or iPod Touch. A Macbook, Macbook Air, or Windows 7 laptop is essential for productivity but not always enough. A Linux user, on the other hand, should have plenty of power on hand to keep a trip safe, productive, and ready for any emergencies.

The Survival Kit

1. Knoppix LiveUSB - Knoppix has excellent hardware support and applications that run perfectly even from a LiveUSB. Even an older Knoppix release includes VirtualBox for OS virtualization.Knoppix's small footprint on a USB allows plenty of available space for backing up files and transferring to other platforms, too.

I would at least add Lightweight Portable Security (LPS).

  • The future of KApiDox
    I’ve been working hard to enhance KApiDox. I’d like to come back on what it is for, what I did and what I see for its future.
  • Danbooru Client 0.6.0 released
    It offers a convenient, KF5 and Qt5-based GUI coupled with a QML image view to browse, view, and download images hosted in two of the most famous Danbooru boards (konachan.com and yande.re).
  • A KMail Breakthrough.
    This tells the story of how I finally managed a successful transfer of email data from KMail version 1.13.6 to version 4.11.5. It is a non-technical essay exploring the obstacles I encountered, my options, and the methods I used to achieve my aim. It was written partly to give the information, but also with the hope that readers will both enjoy and be amused by the story of the "battle of KMail" that was ultimately won against "incredible odds". Links to the earlier articles discussing problems with KMail 4x are given at the end.
  • [GSoC] Kdev-Embedded, Debugging and programming embedded systems
    The actual embedded system word depends on closed-source IDEs and libraries, with high monetary value and deprecated functionalities. Programmers that would like to use ARM based boards without paying for an IDE will have problems setting up such development ambient and synchronized toolkits. The main idea of this project is to provide a plugin integrated with KDevelop to help the debugging and programming process of embedded systems like AVR, ARM and x86 based boards.
