Comix: A Useful Comic Reader For Linux

Filed under
Software

I am not a Comic fan, but sometimes I do read some comics to keep myself entertained. My usual way of reading comic is to go online to find the comic I want and read the strips, one at a time. The problem with this method is that with a slow Internet connection, the loading of each strip (image file) is very slow and often results in an unpleasant reading experience. A better way is to install a comic viewer on your computer so you can download and view the comic strip right on your desktop, without any delay. For Linux, Comix is a useful comic reader that I strongly recommend.

Comix is an open-source and lightweight comic viewer that runs on Linux, BSD and virtually any other UNIX-like OS. At its core, it is basically an image viewer with support for comic library and is able to reads ZIP and tar archives natively.

Installation
To install Comix in Ubuntu, you can easily install it via the Ubuntu Software Center, Synaptic Package Manager or type the following command in the terminal:

Linux 4.2 is out

So judging by how little happened this week, it wouldn't have been a mistake to release 4.2 last week after all, but hey, there's certainly a few fixes here, and it's not like delaying 4.2 for a week should have caused any problems either. So here it is, and the merge window for 4.3 is now open. I already have a few pending early pull requests, but as usual I'll start processing them tomorrow and give the release some time to actually sit. The shortlog from rc8 is tiny, and appended. The patch is pretty tiny too. Go get it, Linus Read more
