GNOME's Mutter 3.17.2 Adds X11/Wayland Clipboard Interoperation

Filed under
Graphics/Benchmarks
GNOME

GNOME's Mutter window manager was updated to v3.17.2 today as the latest development version in the road to GNOME 3.18.

Of importance to Mutter 3.17.2 is that it now supports X11/Wayland clipboard interoperation. Now the clipboard contents from copying and pasting can be done between native X11 and Wayland applications, which previously wasn't possible up until now for those running a mix of X11 and Wayland programs on the desktop.

  • Let’s contribute Peru with GNOME

    After that Cesar Fabian started the code contribution part, because all of them were interested in GNOME developer technologies. We started with glib, based on the GLIB Website. He explained us that Glib is a GNOME library written in C. We did a couple of examples: Hello Word and Lists of Fruits, using glist. Glists are linked lists that use the type void *. It was also explained values and basic types like gboleean where ONE represents TRUE and the rest of values are FALSE .

GNOME 3.17.2 unstable tarballs due

Filed under
GNOME

Hello all,

Tarballs are due on 2015-05-25 before 23:59 UTC for the GNOME 3.17.2
unstable release, which will be delivered on Wednesday. Modules which
were proposed for inclusion should try to follow the unstable schedule
so everyone can test them. Please make sure that your tarballs will
be uploaded before Monday 23:59 UTC: tarballs uploaded later than that
will probably be too late to get in 3.17.2. If you are not able to
make a tarball before this deadline or if you think you'll be late,
please send a mail to the release team and we'll find someone to roll
the tarball for you!

    Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at Protocols Plugfest Europe 2015. It was really good to get out of the bubble of free software desktops where the community love makes it tempting to think we’re the most important thing in the world and experience the wider industry where of course we are only a small player.

A Few Laps With Fedora 22

In a sentence, it’s another winner in a long line of winners from Fedora. If you’re a Fedora user, you’ll love Fedora 22. If you’re not a Fedora user and want to try it, it’s worth the effort to get it to where you want it. The caveat here is that you may have to tweak it a bit to do what more mainstream distros like Linux Mint or Ubuntu do out of the box. If you’re up to it, then go for it. Read more

5 Reasons To Buy Android Over Apple's iOS and Microsoft's Windows

With Android, it’s a numbers game. Plain and simple. You want choice in devices, Android gives you that. Sure, it’s a bit of a minefield and you might come across some brands that you’ve never heard off, or incredibly convincing fakes that run a fully working version of Android (no counterfeiter has managed to successfully load a dodgy version of iOS on to a device yet).
