Linux and Celeron J4005 with UHD600?

Tue, 2018-10-02 18:47

have a NUC with a Pentium J5005 and a UHD605 iGPU. Turns out that there's some display driver problems in Linux, namely that they (apparently) don't exist. So, I'm looking to replace the NUC with the NUC7CJYH (Celeron J4005) which has the UHD600. Does anyone know if there's better support for the UHD600 compared to the UHD605? Or are they both pretty much in the same boat?

Security on the go.

Tue, 2018-10-02 17:13


I just started using linux. I love every aspect of it but I can't find a proper way to secure my data.

I have a translation company and I spend a lot of time traveling abroad with my computer. I need to find a way to secure my computer and also to set up backups. I have less than 20 Go of work related confidential data.

What I used to do on Windows :

  • All my work related files and portable softwares (thunderbird, libreoffice, mozilla) on an encrypted partition on my laptop (bitlocker)
  • The main folder of this partition was regularly synced on a secure cloud
  • I would copy this partition every few weeks on a encrypted USB flash drive (bitlocker). I was also able to work from this the flash drive thanks to my portable softwares.

This configuration was the safest I could find. No risks related to basic theft, loss, HDD failure, sync error. I know it is not perfect but it worked fine and protected my data without too much work.

Do you have any idea on how to set up a similar configuration on linux ?

Should I encrypt my home folder, use an encrypted partition or gpg ?

Can I sync an encrypted directory or partition on my Owncloud ?

Can I copy every few weeks an encrypted partition on a USB flash drive, access it on the go and secure the data on it ?

I know there is no right answer, but I have been looking for a long time and I have no idea where to start. And to make things more difficult, I stopped using all Google products 3 years ago and would like to keep it this way.

Why does "Win"+7 open a terminal for me?

Tue, 2018-10-02 15:30

I use i3wm on manjaro. I installed KDE first, to have some backup if somebody unexperienced wants to use my computer. I open my workspaces with "Win"-Key + number. Everything works. Except 7. It just opens a terminal on the current workspace. I can't find any hotkey bindings for this. Any ideas?
