Sometimes all those GNOME programming projects are driving me crazy.
Note that for that last item, I would use LaTeXila of course, so if there are some regressions due to some library changes (you perfectly know which library in particular I mean), I’ll probably become aware of the regressions and fix them. Without any guarantees, I repeat. So if someone wants to take over LaTeXila maintenance, I would be more than happy. In the condition that I can still recognize my old pet project afterwards and is still mostly bug-free.
Users of the Chakra GNU/Linux operating system were informed this past weekend by the project's maintainer Neofytos Kolokotronis of the availability of two essential software distributions for the rolling OS.
For the first time in a long time, Linux gamers have a reason to smile. Gaming on the open-source operating system has long meant dabbling in Wine and arcane workarounds, but ever since Valve launched Steam for Linux a year-and-a-half ago the number of native Linux games has positively exploded.
Yes, Golang is there.
Both implementations are available in Fedora repositories. Golang(Gc) since Fedora 17 initially packaged by Adam Goode in version 1.1 and gcc-go since Fedora 15 in version of gcc 4.6.0(pre go1.0?, definitely not used much back then) packaged as part of gcc by GCC maintainers. Currently as for F22/F23 as golang-1.5.3 and gcc-5 and for upcoming F24 as golang-1.6 and gcc-6 respectively. Both implementation can be installed in parallel thanks to the Fedora alternatives.
LOHAN entertains the crowd at Oz Linux shindig
Our Low Orbit Helium Assisted Navigator (LOHAN) mission took to the stage at the linux.conf.au 2016 in Geelong last Friday, as Linux guru and Vulture 2 spaceplane autopilot wrangler Andrew Tridgell gave an entertaining speech on his currently UAV endeavours.
Tridge kicked off his presentation (video here) with a look at the two vehicles he and CanberraUAV are prepping for the 2016 UAV Challenge - a petrol-driven chopper and a VTOL quadplane.
Ken's love of programming eventually led to a job at Canonical, and then he learned about the Kramden Institute. "At first I was just excited about what they do for so many children," he says. "It's truly an amazing organization. After hearing about Kramden, I very quickly signed up to work a Wednesday work night, which was really a blast. Wednesday evening at Kramden is an event to remember. They are incredibly well organized and almost always have a full house. It's a community of folks that want to help these children; I just fit right in."
A new project named Maru promises to provide users with a full Android Lollipop experience on the phone and switch to a Debian Linux distro when connected to a monitor and peripherals.
A phone that is powered by Android and magically transforms into a Linux desktop when connected to an external display has been tried before. It was called Ubuntu for Android, and it was one of Canonical's earliest attempts at some sort of convergence between the mobile and PC worlds.
