What's New in Docker 17.09?

LXer - Wed, 2017-10-18 02:41
Much like the container microservices DevOps world itself, Docker iterates rapidly. In a session at the DockerCon EU conference in Copenhagen Vivek Saraswat, senior product manager at Docker detailed some of the new features in recently released versions of both Docker Community Edition (CE) and Docker Enterprise Edition (EE).

LibreOffice, LiMux, KDE, Qt, and Krita

  • Coming up on Friday: first Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 6.0 Alpha 1

    The LibreOffice community has returned from a great conference in Rome (more on that later this week), and we’re now working eagerly on LibreOffice 6.0, which is due to be released at the end of January 2018. This version will include a large number of new features – and those already implemented are summarised on the release notes page.

  • LibreOffice Is Getting New Look for KDE's Plasma Desktop Thanks to LiMux Project

    During the LibreOffice Conference 2017 event that took place in Rome, Italy, from October 10 to October 13, there were talks about the status the Qt 5 port of LibreOffice's VCL plugin for KDE Plasma.

    Every year, The Document Foundation plans and organizes a LibreOffice Conference event where developers, contributors, sponsors, users, and other members of the LibreOffice community can gather to talk about the future of the Open Souce office suite.

    And this year they planned the new features of the next major release of the cross-platform office suite, LibreOffice 6.0, which will arrive in late January 2018 with a new look for the KDE Plasma desktop environment, work that will be sponsored by the LiMux project.

  • KDE still makes Qt

    A couple of years ago, I made a blog post, KDE makes Qt, with data about which percentage of Qt contributions came from people starting in KDE. Basically, how many Qt contributions are made by people who used KDE as a “gateway” drug into it.

  • Krita 3.3.1 Best Alternative To Photoshop for Ubuntu/Linux Mint

    Krita is a KDE program for sketching and painting, although it has image processing capabilities, offering an end–to–end solution for creating digital painting files from scratch by masters. Fields of painting that Krita explicitly supports are concept art, creation of comics and textures for rendering. Modelled on existing real-world painting materials and workflows, Krita supports creative working by getting out of the way and with a snappy response.

Linux and Graphics: AMD, Linux 4.14 LTS, Etnaviv Gallium3D

TuxMachines - Wed, 2017-10-18 02:29
  • Linux 4.14 Ensures The "Core Performance Boost" Bit Gets Set For AMD Ryzen CPUs

    Recently making waves in our forums was talk of a kernel patch to address a case where the AMD CPB (Core Performance Boost) isn't being exposed by Ryzen processors. Here's more details on that and some benchmarks.

    Being talked about recently is f7f3dc0: "CPUID Fn8000_0007_EDX[CPB] is wrongly 0 on models up to B1. But they do support CPB (AMD's Core Performance Boosting cpufreq CPU feature), so fix that."

  • Linus Torvalds Is Confident That Linux Kernel 4.14 LTS Will Arrive on November 5

    Development of Linux 4.14, the next LTS (Long Term Support) kernel series, continues with the fifth RC (Release Candidate) milestone, which was announced by Linus Torvalds himself this past weekend.

    According to Linus Torvalds, things have finally starting to calm down for the development of the Linux 4.14 LTS kernel, and it looks like the RC5 snapshot is smaller than he would have expected, at least smaller than last week's RC4, which is a good thing, meaning that there won't be need for eight RCs during this cycle.

  • Etnaviv Gallium3D Is Almost To OpenGL 2.0 Compliance

    The Etnaviv Gallium3D driver that provides reverse-engineered, open-source graphics support for Vivante graphics hardware is almost to exposing OpenGL 2.0.

    Etnaviv contributor Christian Gmeiner today posted a set of patches for adding occlusion queries support to the driver. The code at just over one thousand lines of code is the last major feature needed for exposing desktop OpenGL 2.0 capabilities with this community-driven driver.

  • AMD Developers Begin Making Open-Source FreeSync/AdaptiveSync Plans

    While the AMDGPU DC code is expected to land for Linux 4.15 with goodies like Vega display support, HDMI/DP audio, and atomic mode-setting, one of the sought after display features won't be initially supported: FreeSync or the VESA-backed AdaptiveSync.

    As we've known for a while, while AMDGPU DC fills out the requirements for being able to support FreeSync, the last bits of the implementation are not present as the interfaces are basically yet to be decided among the open-source driver developers. While AMD can post their existing FreeSync code as found in AMDGPU-PRO hybrid driver, they are trying to come up with a more standardized interface that will satisfy the other upstream Linux driver developers too that might want to support AdaptiveSync.

Docker to Bring Kubernetes to Its Flagship Enterprise Platform

LXer - Wed, 2017-10-18 01:27
In a classic case of "if you can't lick 'em, join 'em," Docker is bringing Kubernetes to Docker Enterprise Edition, its container platform for enterprises. Perhaps the move, announced Tuesday at DockerCon 17 in Copenhagen, was inevitable, as just about every organization that uses containers has jumped on the Kubernetes bandwagon.

After arch/i3wm for a while, i want to see what desktop linux has to offer

Reddit - Wed, 2017-10-18 01:01

I have to (sadly) switch away from arch because of work/uni and i thought why not ask the good folks round here what kind of fluff and sparkly stuff they use for their desktops

i had a look at kde-plasma(because i really like kde connect)... does it get any more flashy than that?

so what do you guys use? (been a subscriber to unixporn for a while... mostly customized wm's not no guis there)

Easy trick to have higher resolution on linux, is it safe?

Reddit - Wed, 2017-10-18 00:17

I definitely not a linux expert (only switch full time linux on Feb 2017), use a Thinkpad X230 as my main computer studying CS, (12.5 inch screen and only 1366 x 768) the IPS Display is great, the 9 cell battery is great, and the linux support too. The only thing that bothers me is the low resolution. Found this post here , and i've been using this for about 3 days, and it seems to works perfectly. Changed my resolution to 1600 x 900 (1920 x 1080 12.5 inch screen is too small for me) using this command:

xrandr --output LVDS-1 --panning 1600x900 --scale 1.172x1.172

To go back

xrandr --output LVDS-1 --panning 1366x768 --scale 1x1

Anyone ever tried this before? Is there any "side effect"?

Thanks

A 7-step plan for engaging your community's naysayers

LXer - Wed, 2017-10-18 00:13
When you practice open communication and invite feedback, you get a lot valuable input that can improve your ideas, projects, and decisions. Yet one of the most common questions I hear is this: "That's all well and good, and I agree, it's best to open yourself up to that kind of feedback. But what about that one guy. . .?"You know the one they're talking about. It's Mr. Grumpy, who inevitably shows up and says things like, "Oh, that won't work here" or "We already tried something like that," yet never seems to offer any helpful or productive alternatives.read more
