I'm looking for a clean desktop that mimics OSX (ideally global menu, simple dock on bottom with autohide). Elementary OS seems like a good choice, though I need a Ubuntu 14.04 base. Is Elementary OS Freya still supported? Will I still get Ubuntu security updates? If so, where can I download it? Elementary OS's website doesn't seem to have a link for older OS versions.submitted by /u/__init_self__
I've been thinking about a buying a graphics tablet (digital drawing table) and, since it is my first, I don't know anything about setting them up on Linux.
Is there any brand I should stay away from? Any recommended model?
Currently I use Gnome on Wayland (on Arch), but everywhere I look the configs only cover X11. How is the support (and customization. That is important!) for graphic tablets on Wayland?submitted by /u/bolche17
Which Libre / Free package could be used by visitors to indicate on a touch screen that they have arrived?
A paper based system would have you tear off a numbered ticket. That works, but it doesn't register that you have arrived.
The software could be used instead of a receptionist, for example, at a dental surgery or a government office.
What is the name for this type of software?submitted by /u/freelyread
