Jonathan Riddell Releases ISO Image Writer

TuxMachines - Fri, 2017-06-23 21:37
  • ISO Image Writer

    It’s based on ROSA Image Writer which has served KDE neon and other projects well for some time. This adds ISO verification to automatically check the digital signatures or checksums, currently supported is KDE neon, Kubuntu and Netrunner. It also uses KAuth so it doesn’t run the UI as root, only a simple helper binary to do the writing. And it uses KDE Frameworks goodness so the UI feels nice.

  • ISO Image Writer is a new Qt-based Bootable USB Creator

    Linux enthusiasts on the hunt for a reliable USB image writer will be pleased to hear that a new app is in development.

    The plainly named ‘ISO Image Writer‘ is a new app by Jonathan Riddell, a prominent KDE developer and project lead of the KDE Neon software stack.

    The new app, Riddell says, is based on the Qt5 ROSA Image Writer, a cross-platform USB image writer that is recommended by KDE Neon, among other Linux distributions.

First Time Debian User

Reddit - Fri, 2017-06-23 21:33

Hey, guys. Just wanted to share a personal victory moment today- I had previously installed Ubuntu, but after I heard about some of the privacy intrustions, I decided to make the jump to Debian. Unfortunately, this process took quite a while; my network card had no drivers, sudo did not appear to come bundled with the CDRom version of the OS, and for some reason, iwlwifi refused to download. After 3 hours of hardwork (which has been incredibly gratifying), I am proud to say I finally got past it. To all the people who try to install, but are confronted with tons of issues: keep going. It sucks right now, but youll feel awesome when youre done. Here are some of the sources that really helped me, if anyone else has the same issues:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/521591/user-in-sudo-group-cannot-use-sudo-command https://askubuntu.com/questions/233064/why-am-i-getting-command-deb-not-found/233069 https://www.google.com/search?q=debian+9&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8 https://www.tecmint.com/fix-user-is-not-in-the-sudoers-file-the-incident-will-be-reported-ubuntu/ https://packages.debian.org/stretch/all/firmware-iwlwifi/download https://www.asus.com/us/support/Download/3/788/0/1/cgSxMlZWmrvUbTYS/41/ https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232574 https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/wireless-networking/000005511.html https://www.debian.org/releases/jessie/i386/ch06s04.html.en https://wiki.debian.org/iwlwifi

If you got to this point, thanks for reading. Messing aorund with it is like chewing glass, but it`s amazing when stuff works!

Dont give up. Even Torvalds hasnt gotten a Debian machine up and running yet. Evidence: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHGTs1NSB1s Xb
