Hardkernel tweaks its popular Odroid-C1 Pi clone

Linux
Ubuntu

Hardkernel’s Odroid project is shipping a replacement for its community-backed Odroid-C1 single-board computer, which debuted last December, and came in fourth place in this June’s LinuxGizmos/Linux.com Linux/Android SBC reader survey out of a field of 53. According to the project, the $37 C1+ “replaced” the original $35 C1 as of July, and the original cases and heatsink will not work with the C1+. Otherwise, processor, memory, and other details are the same, including the 40-pin GPIO connector, which is said to be compatible with later generation Raspberry Pi SBCs.

Kartesio 1.0: free best fitting for science labs is now stable

Filed under
KDE
Debian
Ubuntu

Kartesio is not based on KDElibs anymore. I made this choice basically for two reasons: the main one is that I wanted Kartesio to run easily also on Windows, and KDElibs building is way too much complex for my taste. The second reason is that KDE developers seemed not particularly interested in Kartesio: maybe that's because this program is designed for science laboratories (in high schools and universities, for example) and this is a way too limited set of users for KDE Edu. Obiously, it's still a program meant to be used on KDE when possible (I'm using Oxigen icons to give that wonderful KDE feeling). But if you really want to use it without KDE, it's not a problem anymore.

Ubuntu Developers Want To Make It Easier To Run The Latest NVIDIA Drivers

Graphics/Benchmarks
Gaming
Ubuntu

Jorge Castro of Canonical has started coordinating some work around providing newer upstream NVIDIA proprietary graphics drivers for users, primarily Ubuntu gamers.

After being dissatisfied with the performance of the NVIDIA Linux driver as currently packaged on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, he resorted to using PPAs for getting the newer NVIDIA Linux driver. He's looking to build on that and to do a better job of testing and making available the newer binary blobs.

Leftovers: KDE

  • KDE-5_15.09 – september release for Slackware-current
  • Kontact and GnuPG under Windows
    Kontact has, in contrast to Thunderbird, integrated crypto support (OpenPGP and S/MIME) out-of-the-box. That means on Linux you can simply start Kontact and read crypted mails (if you have already created keys). After you select your crypto keys, you can immediately start writing encrypted mails. With that great user experince I never needed to dig further in the crypto stack.

  • KDE 5 Application Dashboard: A fullscreen app launcher that beats the competition
    Fullscreen applications launchers are my favorite kind of application menus, of which there are several to choose from on the K Desktop Environment, or KDE. On KDE 4, available options are the Takeoff Launcher, Simple Welcome, and Homerun.
  • Krita 2.9.7 Released!

We’ll be releasing regular bug fix releases, but from now on, all feature development focuses on Krita 3.0. But 2.9.7 is packed! There are new features, a host of bug fixes, the Windows builds have been updated with OpenEXR 2.2. New icons give Krita a fresh new look, updated brushes improve performance, memory handling is improved… Let’s first look at some highlights:

Fedora: The Latest

  • Flock Rochester
    I’m not going to do a day by day outline of what I did at flock, if I did it would basically be “blah blah blah I talked a lot to a lot of people about a lot of tech topics” and anyone that’s ever met me would have guessed that! It was, as in the past, a great conference. A big shout out to the organisers for an excellent event with two excellent evening events! So I’m going to give a brief summary to my talks and link to slides and video recordings.
  • Day 4 of Flock 2015
  • Write the Docs 2015
    Writing documentation is not only about writing, but actually a lot about layout, accessibility, UX and UI, too. So I actually enjoyed listening to Beth Aitman, for example (here are here slides). Among the most memorable were Elijah Caine with his talk about writing emails, which I really really hope more people could listen to, and Christina Elmore talking about creative problem solving. One of my personal favorites was a lightning talk by Marcin Warpechowski about laptop stickers! TL;DR – stickers are a great way to engage employees and the community! Got me (and actually everybody) excited about stickers even more and willing to create some. GitHub’s octocat also contributed to my feelings about stickers. They actually produce a special version for all conferences they attend! Also I think it was ladies from GitHub taking most the notes (or maybe I just happened to seat behind them ;) ).
