  • The Most Popular Linux Gaming Articles For 2014

    Here is a look back at the most popular articles on GamingOnLinux for 2014, it was a seriously crazy year for us here, and for everyone in Linux gaming, so let's see what happened! We had a few downers, but most of it was great stuff that I am proud to be a part of.

  • LISA, A Quirky Side-scrolling RPG, In Beta For Linux

  • Transport Tycoon's OpenTTD Remake Ends 2014 with a Great Release

    OpenTTD is an open source simulation game based on the popular Microprose title Transport Tycoon written by Chris Sawyer. It's been around for quite some time and it's still played by many gamers, even today. A new major release is in the making and the first Beta has been released.

  • The Itch Games Store Are Working On An Open Source Client

    The games store has always been nice, but icing on the cake is that they are now creating an open source desktop client in Qt 5.

    It's in the very early stages, but could be something to give it a boost over other smaller stores. Desura is also working to bring their re-open sourced client back to Linux, and GOG are bringing out a closed source client. Looks like desktop clients are becoming a big thing again.

  • New Desura Client Available For Linux, Open Source Again

    Finally, Desura has a new client available for Linux. Bad Juju Games haven't officially announced it anywhere on Desura yet, but it is available to download.

    It has been open sourced again thanks to Bad Juju Games who moved it to the GPL3 license, and removed the need to sign a contributor agreement, but the Desura name and logo are still subject to certain terms (fair enough).

  • TIMEframe, A Game Played In Slow Motion Plans A Big Update With Linux Support

    TIMEframe was originally created for the Ludum Dare game jam competition by Random Seed games and an updated version has been in development.

    It looks like a pretty interesting concept, and they need help by getting votes on Steam Greenlight. Sadly, the original doesn't have Linux support, so it's great the updated version will.

  • Remixing open source games with Creative Commons content

    One of the great things about open source is that you're free to modify and redistribute it in whichever way you like. This is real creative freedom that I support. All of my apps and games are open source. A while back, I helped fund the opening of some game music and art assets to the public. Being in the public domain (or having a Creative Commons license, as these art assets now do) allows for public remixing and free use of the content. Gotta love that.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.

Red Hat Hires a Blind Software Engineer to Improve Accessibility on Linux Desktop

Accessibility on a Linux desktop is not one of the strongest points to highlight. However, GNOME, one of the best desktop environments, has managed to do better comparatively (I think). In a blog post by Christian Fredrik Schaller (Director for Desktop/Graphics, Red Hat), he mentions that they are making serious efforts to improve accessibility. Starting with Red Hat hiring Lukas Tyrychtr, who is a blind software engineer to lead the effort in improving Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and Fedora Workstation in terms of accessibility. Read more
