LXer - Fri, 2018-09-21 16:53
“even if you don't consider yourself to be ‘a writer,’ you should consider writing about your open source contributions, project, or community.” Writing can be a great way to share knowledge and engage others in your work, but it has personal benefits as well. It can help you meet new people, learn new skills, and improve your communication style.

Influx of brigading and a potential fix.

Reddit - Fri, 2018-09-21 14:16

Over at /r/CryptoCurrency/ they have karma indication base on subreddit, so you are able to see if someone is active within the subreddit community or simply brigading.


I have noticed since the CoC being introduced /r/linux has had a MASSIVE influx of none linux users just riding the drama the CoC has caused.

This is a problem and a distraction from what this subreddit is actually for, discussion of the CoC and the overall linux community is a positive but not when it's done behind arterial motives and not for the betterment of the community.

compiz is NOT dead

Reddit - Fri, 2018-09-21 14:04

I have read the posts from "why did compiz die" section. Poppycock!

I did some graphics work for compiz,, ccsm icons, 3d obj models for the 3d model plugin, as well as support, way back during beryl/compiz fusion days. When gnome shell/gnome3 came out I began to hate gnome altogether. Unity in Ubuntu was no different for me. The original 15 compiz developers had left one by one. Then Sam Spilsbury took over as lead developer for compiz 0.09 via Canonical. Shortly after, I left as support. Mainly because my circumstances had changed ad unity & gnome 3 completely turned me off. Then compiz reloaded came out. What a joy!!!

I switched from ubuntu to fedora 28 mate, and I am loving it. Eleven years ago, long before Sam Spilsbury was lead developer, he made a video that was real exiting. The only problem was that it was made with a camcorder focused on the monitor. To me it is still the classic movie for compiz. With that said, I "re-created' the video with OBS studio. It doesn't match up to Sam's original, but it was damn fun to do. Sam's movie is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epRjN9EkYY4My rendition is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1PjjBWgqKE

I hope you all enjoy both videos, and stop the doom and gloom about compiz. It is still a very effective window manager, sometimes silly, but over all great! And remember, it is in the works to port over to wayland.

  • WinWorld – A Large Collection Of Defunct OSs, Software And Games

    The other day, I was testing Dosbox which is used to run MS-DOS games and programs in Linux. While searching for some classic programs like Turbo C++, I stumbled upon a website named WinWorld. I went through a few links in this site and quite surprised. WinWorld has a plenty of good-old and classic OSs, software, applications, development tools, games and a lot of other miscellaneous utilities which are abandoned by the developers a long time ago. It is an online museum run by community members, volunteers and is dedicated to the preservation and sharing of vintage, abandoned, and pre-release software.

    WinWorld was started back in 2003 and its founder claims that the idea to start this site inspired by Yahoo briefcases. The primary purpose of this site is to preserve and share old software. Over the years, many people volunteered to improve this site in numerous ways and the collection of old software in WinWorld has grown exponentially. The entire WinWorld library is free, open and available to everyone.

  • The excellent 2D action RPG 'CrossCode' is now officially out

    CrossCode from Radical Fish Games is a rather great 2D action RPG and today it was officially released across multiple stores.

    It's a fun idea, having you play as a character who is actually in an MMO set in the far future, where your avatar has a physical form. It's 2018 after all, we have films like Ready Player One that follow a guy running around in VR…

    Inspired by some of the classic JRPGs, CrossCode has a lot of familiar RPG elements and anyone who has played an action-RPG will feel right at home. I've been waiting so long for this to be finished and it's absolutely worth the wait.

  • Transhuman Design has removed the Linux version of BUTCHER due to issues in favour of Steam Play

    It seems Transhuman Design have removed the Linux version of BUTCHER after users reported issues, opting instead to ask Steam to add it as an approved Steam Play title.


    After digging into the Steam forum, I came across this forum topic started in August, where four users mentioned trouble starting the game. That doesn't seem like a lot of people to make such a big decision, but it's understandable that with a tiny team and little time they're trying to make it so Linux gamers still have a good experience. Probably a good case for Valve to allow people to have a choice between native and Steam Play's Proton.

  • Tumbleweed Gets New Versions of KDE Plasma, Applications

    A total of four openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots were delivered to users of the rolling release this past week and the snapshot brought new versions of KDE Plasma and KDE Applications.

    The most recent snapshot 20180917 updated three packages. The GNOME package dconf-editor was updated to 3.30.0. Users of the ext2 filesystem will notice the utility package e2fsprogs 1.44.4 will fix the debugs ncheck command to work for files with multiple hard links; the updated package also has new debugfs commands for dumping xattr blocks and i_blocks array. Another GNOME package was updated with the iagno 3.30.0 package for the game reversi, which shows that GNOME 3.30 packages are starting to be integrated into Tumbleweed snapshots.

    Another three packages were updated in the 20180916 snapshot. The GNU Project debugger, gdb 8.2, added several patches and support access to new POWER8 registers. A fix was made for a GNU Compiler Collection 8.1 warning with the perl-DBD-mysql 4.047 updated, which also added options needed for public key based security. The other package that was updated in the snapshot was perl-Glib 1.327.

  • Slim signage player features Radeon E8860 GPU and six HDMI ports

    Ibase’s high-end “SI-626” signage player runs Windows or Linux on 7th or 6th Gen Intel Core CPUs with Radeon E8860 graphics, and offers 6x HDMI 1.4b ports, EDID remote management, and a 30mm profile.

    Ibase’s new SI-626 digital signage and video wall player combines high-end functionality with a slim 30mm height — 1.5mm thinner than its AMD Ryzen V1000 based SI-324 player. Like the SI-324, the SI-626 features hardware based EDID remote management with software setting mode to prevent display issues due to cable disconnection or display identification failures.

  • Thermal Microconference Accepted into 2018 Linux Plumbers Conference

    As the energy density of computer systems has increased, thermal issues have become an increasingly hot topic across the spectrum from hand-held systems to internet datacenters. Because the need for thermal management is relatively new, there is a wide variety of hardware and firmware mechanisms, to say nothing of a wide variety of independently developed software to interact with these mechanisms. This in turn results in complex and almost-duplicate code to manage and control thermal excursions. This microconference will therefore look to see if it is possible to consolidate or at least to better align the Linux kernel’s thermal subsystems.

    This microconference will therefore discuss better handling of low ambient temperatures, userspace thermal control, improvements to thermal zone mode, better support for indirect (virtual) temperature measurement, sensor hierarchy, scheduler interactions with thermal management, and improvements to idle injection as a way to cool a core.
