Looking for a solution to give users an interface to search OCR'd PDF documents in a file system.

Reddit - Wed, 2017-11-08 18:01

I'm currently using Alfresco as a CMS but I want to replace it for a number of reasons.

The users need a simple web page where they can input a search term and they are provided with a list of docs (ideally, with thumbs that can be expanded) that they can then download.

I'm guessing the best approach would involve SOLR or Elasticsearch. I don't have any real file system requirements but I'm working in a linux environment.

Have any of you faced a similar situation? What solution did you go with and why?

Composable desktop environment

Reddit - Wed, 2017-11-08 17:30

Console world of Linux follows a great idea “Do One Thing and Do It Well”. It’s easy to compose these tools into some specific solution (in console/text world).

But, in GUI world of Linux, it isn’t like that. There are desktop environments, which offer you GUI ecosystem, which does everything you need, also lots of stuff, which you don’t need. There are window managers, which (mostly) do only window management, but it’s all they do.

I haven’t seen such desktop environment, which would follow DOTADIW, in a GUI world. Desktop environments are there to provide users a graphical way to interact with computer. So, I would like to easy compose my own desktop environment: pick and tune window manager, pick and tune services (keyrings, networking,...), setup visual configuration.

Practically, (almost?) every desktop environment focuses only on their ecosystem, widget toolkit, window manager, services,...

I got to this idea, when I started experimenting with i3-wm. It's great WM for laptops with one small screen. It boosts productivity heavily, but it comes with nothing, and it's a long process to setup everything in text files.

Why there isn’t any DOTADIW tool, which would only focus on composing desktop environment out of small fractions - wm, tools, services, settings,... ? Also, it would have been nice, if it’s configuration would have been easily gittable.

Virtually replug hard drive

Reddit - Wed, 2017-11-08 17:21

I have an external hard drive plugged in via USB to my server.

The drive must be old/bad so sometimes it stops working. I need to plug it out and back in.

Is there a way to emulate this over SSH?

Getting started with .NET for Linux

LXer - Wed, 2017-11-08 16:37
When you know a software developer's preferred operating system, you can often guess what programming language(s) they use. If they use Windows, the language list includes C#, JavaScript, and TypeScript. A few legacy devs may be using Visual Basic, and the bleeding-edge coders are dabbling in F#. Even though you can use Windows to develop in just about any language, most stick with the usuals.read more

Do some distros/hardware run certain desktop environments faster?

Reddit - Wed, 2017-11-08 16:25

I know this is kind of a silly question, but I'm currently a Linux noob toying around with. I have xubuntu on my desktop computer running blazing fucking fast (installed it because of its reputation for light weight speedy goodness). Yet, on my shitty netbook I installed fedora xfce and it was laggy and unstable.

I then installed fedora kde and it runs buttery smooth. My question is, does Ubuntu naturally run xfce better than fedora, or does it have to do with some random hardware quirks in both my systems?
