Filed under

HowTos

I recently installed the Fedora Cinnamon Spin after using Manjaro for some months. I have used Fedora for many years, and Cinnamon is one of my favorite desktop environments. However, until Fedora 23, if I wanted to use Cinnamon in Fedora, I would have to install it after I installed another desktop. Now, I can install Cinnamon directly from an ISO file. In this article, I will share my experiences installing and using the Cinnamon Spin for Fedora.

I borrowed the above title from a video on Youtube because it is instantly intriguing. If you are anything like me then you just need to find out how you go about crashing Linux Mint.

How to customise your Linux desktop: Openbox

Filed under
HowTos

In six previous posts I have looked at a variety of Linux Desktop Environments: Xfce, KDE, Gnome 3, Cinnamon, MATE, and LXDE. Now I am going to move one step lower in the GUI hierarchy, and look at using only a simple Window Manager for your Linux GUI. But in order to do that, I am going to have to spend a minute explaining the difference between the two.

Open source near ubiquitous in IoT, report finds

Open source is increasingly standard operating procedure in software, but nowhere is this more true than Internet of Things development. According to a new VisionMobile survey of 3,700 IoT developers, 91% of respondents use open source software in at least one area of their software stack. This is good news for IoT because only open source promises to reduce or eliminate the potential for lock-in imposed by proprietary “standards.” What’s perhaps most interesting in this affection for open source, however, is that even as enterprise developers have eschewed the politics of open source licensing, IoT developers seem to favor open source because “it’s free as in freedom.” Read more

Ubuntu 16.04 – My Experience so Far and Customization

While I earnestly anticipated the release of Unity 8 with Xenial Xerus (after watching a couple of videos that showcased its function), I was utterly disappointed that Canonical was going to further push its release — even though it was originally meant to debut with Ubuntu 14.04. Back to the point at hand, I immediately went ahead and installed Unity Tweak Tool, moved my dash to the bottom (very important) and then proceeded to replace Nautilus with the extensive Nemo file manager which is native to Linux Mint and by far superior to the former (my opinion).
