Fuduntu Done Now, All Hail FuSE

Filed under
Linux

It wasn't two weeks ago that news broke of Fuduntu's imminent demise, but was softened a bit by promises of support and one more release. Then word began to swirl that remaining members were seriously considering basing on openSUSE. But today brought a more dire announcement.

Last week, Lee Ward shared that he and his team have decided that openSUSE would indeed be the base for their new distribution. In fact, in that same post, Ward stated that the new distro would be dubbed FuSE if Novell will allow it.

lol name

Imagine googling for problems/issue related to "FuSE" ...

re: name

Yeah, I was thinking about that name too. You look at it and it looks like fuse - like the filesystem. But then if you think about the way SUSE is pronounced, then we'd probably pronounce the new name as fussy, like a fussy baby.

  • Interview with Wolthera
    My name is Wolthera, I am 25, studied Game Design and currently studying Humanities, because I want to become a better game designer, and I hope to make games in the future as a job. I also draw comics, though nothing has been published yet. [...] After I played a lot with MyPaint, I heard from people that Krita 2.4 was the shit. When I went to the website at the time (which is the one before the one before the current) it just looked alien and strange, and worse: there was no Windows version, so I couldn’t even try it out. So I spent a few more years having fun with MyPaint alone, but eventually I got tired of its brush engine and wanted to try something more rough. When I checked Krita again, it had two things: a new, considerably more coherent website (the one before this one) and a Windows build. Around that time it was still super unstable and it didn’t work with my tablet. But MyPaint also had tablet problems, so I had no qualms about dual booting to Linux and trying it out there.

    So, my project is titled: Better Tooling for Baloo. Let me begin by explaining what Baloo is. According to its wiki page it is "Baloo is a metadata and search framework by KDE." What exactly does it mean? Baloo is responsible for providing full text search capabilities to KDE applications. It doesn't end there it also provides searching on basis of metadata of various types of files. To acomplish this it indexes file contents and metadata using various plugins ,called extractors, to handle different types of files. It then exposes the data it has indexed with the help of various API's. So thats a very high level view of how it works. Now, my project, as the title states will provide better tools for Baloo. These tools will mainly be:
