By now, you’ve probably met the donate page on Ubuntu, the one you see when you go to download an Ubuntu ISO. This donation page has led to a schism between the Ubuntu Community Council and Jonathan Riddell, the ‘leader’ of the Kubuntu project. All stemming from a perceived lack of transparency regarding donations made to Canonical.
Fedora 22 was released yesterday... so I updated the Fedora 22 OpenVZ OS Template I created to be current and submitted it to contrib. For the fun of it I made a screencast that shows making a Fedora 22 container and then installing the MATE desktop environment along with a handful of common desktop applications and how to access everything via x2go.
"Developed many years before by some high-strung, compulsive assistant, the Bulletin was simply a Word document that lived in a shared folder both Emily and I could access. Only one of us could open it at a time and add a new message, thought, or question to the itemized list. Then we'd print out the...
SSHFS is a handy tool to share files securely. It is a filesystem based on the SSH File Transfer Protocol. In this tutorial we will see how to install SSHFS with from the CentOS repository with the yum command and also how to compile it from source.
The Supreme Court issued a ruling today in Commil USA v. Cisco Systems, one of two patent cases it heard this term. On one key issue, the opinion favors Commil, a "patent troll" that won a $64 million jury verdict against Cisco. But other findings mean that the non-practicing entity won't be getting a payday any time soon—and a final section of the opinion is wholly dedicated to reminding judges to sanction misbehaving patent plaintiffs, something that didn't even come up in this case.
Xfce's Power Manager was getting behind the times, but it has been updated and ported to GTK+ 3.14. As you can imagine, this is an important update, and it packs other changes as well.
The UK government has decided, as foreshadowedby The Reg, that it can do without extended support for Windows XP.
A worm that targets cable and DSL modems, home routers, and other embedded computers is turning those devices into a proxy network for launching armies of fraudulent Instagram, Twitter, and Vine accounts as well as fake accounts on other social networks. The new worm can also hijack routers' DNS service to route requests to a malicious server, steal unencrypted social media cookies such as those used by Instagram, and then use those cookies to add "follows" to fraudulent accounts. This allows the worm to spread itself to embedded systems on the local network that use Linux-based operating systems.
Solus is not new, but its concept kind of is. The story of Solus starts a few years ago, back in 2012, when Intel employee Ikey Doherty announced the first ever version of his distro, called SolusOS, based on Debian GNU/Linux and built around the GNOME 2 desktop environment.
This morning, I worked on an Ubuntu Server 14.04 guest who’s disk space has been increased by the VMWare host. LVM was configured on the guest during installation, so that simplified the process of getting the extra space rolled into the original partitioning scheme. Below is a set of instructions that I was able to use on this live server without interruption in service.
Today KDE releases a bugfix update to Plasma 5, versioned 5.3.1. Plasma 5.3 was released in January with many feature refinements and new modules to complete the desktop experience. This release adds a month's worth of new translations and fixes from KDE's contributors. The bugfixes are typically small but important.
Ubuntu Edge was the superphone from Canonical that never raised the money it needed to become a reality, and the community is still asking about it, two years later. The truth of the matter is that not making the Ubuntu Edge phone is probably the biggest mistake the company ever made.

The longtime leader of Kubuntu, Jonathan Riddell, appears to be out of any leadership position relating to Ubuntu for at least twelve months. This decision has caused some to criticize the Ubuntu Community Council for their decision made in relative private -- a decision that was also backed by Mark Shuttleworth.
When the folks at Mint released a new LTS Xfce version (Qiana) in June of last year, followed by another LTS (Rebecca) in January, we didn’t much care. We were more than happy with Maya, and following the age old philosophy of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” we decided to stay the course and keep using what we had until its sunset year arrived. As far as I was concerned, although approaching obsolescence, Maya was damned near perfect. How much better could the latest and greatest be?
Andrey Petrov spoke at a Sourcegraph open source meetup about lessons learned from his successes and failures creating open source projects.
Working with Linux may bring various incompatibility issues sooner or later, no matter the case of use. You'll either need to run commercial software that offers no Linux version, or just keep using games and applications that you preferred to use when you were back at Windows. Whatever the need, Wine is your only chance.
Hubble is an open source, mid-level laser cutter designed to be affordable, versatile, and hackable. Hubble was created to fill the current gap between amazing, entry-level projects, like MicroSlice, and the expensive, proprietary laser cutters on the market.
Linux GNU firebrand Richard Stallman says Windows and Apple's OS X are malware, Amazon is Orwellian, and anyone who trusts the internet-of-things is an ass.
I had been showing her around the system on my laptop, noting the impressive number of educational games and applications that are included. Obviously, she wasn’t impressed. She went on to argue that less is more, that all those applications were choking the machine and blocking it from it’s real potential.
