How to install and use Gitkraken on Ubuntu with snap

Filed under
Ubuntu
HowTos

If you're a developer, you know Git. Most likely, you use Git on a regular basis. And you probably know Linux as well. In fact, you probably develop with Linux (as Linux is one of the most popular development platforms in the world). If you're a Git user on Linux, you might be using the command line to interact with the service.

However if you could have an outstanding GUI tool for that purpose, you'd probably use it to make your work a bit more efficient. One such tool is the cross platform Gitkraken. With Gitkraken you can easily interact with your Git account, without having to use the command line.

RaspEX developer Arne Exton released today a new version of its Linux distro for Raspberry Pi SBCs (single-board computers) with support for Raspberry Pi Foundation's recently announced Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+, which features a faster 1.4GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 CPU, dual-band 802.11ac wireless, and Gigabit Ethernet.

Under the hood, the developer rebased the kernel on Linux 4.14.30 LTS with support for Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+'s hardware, as well as the base system on the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS operating system, though some packages are borrowed from Debian GNU/Linux 9 "Stretch" and Linaro software for ARM SoCs.

LOL! Google Thinks Arch Linux is Based on Ubuntu

Filed under
GNU
Linux
Ubuntu

Search ‘Ubuntu based distros’ on Google and laugh at the recommendations as Google shows Arch, Debian etc in the search result.

Ubuntu is based on Debian. Debian is not based on other distribution. Arch Linux is a distribution independent of Debian or any other Linux distribution.

This is what every Linux user already knows.

But not Google, apparently.
