Managing dotfiles: a survey

Sat, 2017-03-25 03:22

Fellow penguin lovers, one simple question, how are you managing your dotfiles? Are you using Stow, Ansible, Git Bare directory or something else?

Installing Elementary OS Freya

Sat, 2017-03-25 02:38

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.

What are the main differences between Linux Deploy and Termux? Can I VNC into Termux like I cam with Linux Deploy?

Graphics tablet support on Linux (and Wayland)

Fri, 2017-03-24 19:05

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?

Any love for the startpage search engine

Does anyone use this search engine, they're claiming to be the most private which TBH makes me sceptical.

Check In/Schedule Software?

Fri, 2017-03-24 18:12

Which Libre / Free package could be used by visitors to indicate on a touch screen that they have arrived?

  • It would then send a signal to an LED array, to indicate when they may go in for their appointment?

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?
