How to add a player to your Python game

LXer - Sat, 2017-12-16 05:15
In the first article of this series, I explained how to use Python to create a simple, text-based dice game. In the second part, I showed you how to build a game from scratch, starting with creating the game's environment. But every game needs a player, and every player needs a playable character, so that's what we'll do next in the third part of the series.read more

Peeking into your Linux packages

Some of the most useful commands for gaining insights into the packages installed on your Linux system — Debian style

Linux Haters.

Reddit - Sat, 2017-12-16 03:17

Is it normal for everyone to hate Linux unnecessarily? I use Kali and Ubuntu, still an amateur but slowly gaining some comprehension as time is passing. Anyway, so I fire up my laptop, start ubuntu and start using the terminal. My friends go like "Holy shit!" When all I was trying to do show them a simple virus which installs millions of text files. It was a stupid bash script. Later I was trying to set up apache2 for dvwa. The point is, cretins look at the terminal, they see some commands running and then quickly compare it to the Hollywood films and then start acting weird. Moreover I'm tired of my dad accusing me of fucking up wp10 on our desktop and I tried to explain to him that the fucking Kali has been installed in a separate partition with a different file form (ext4) which windows doesn't use. However he won't listen. He's adamant that Linux is responsible for wp10 fucking up. My parents can't stand the CLI I use on a daily basis and do not understand that I can use wine and run every single app they want on Lin. I find this closed mindedness very stupid. Especially when it is directed to a good OS. Wp10 sucks and hangs frequently nowadays. It takes 5-6 minutes to boot sometimes and then additionally work like shit.

KDE Partition Manager 3.3 and future work

TuxMachines - Sat, 2017-12-16 01:54

KDE Partition Manager 3.3 is now ready. It includes some improvements for Btrfs, F2FS, NTFS file systems. I even landed the first bits of new LUKS2 on-disk format support, now KDE Partition Manager can display LUKS2 labels. More LUKS2 work will follow in KPM 3.4. There were changes in how LVM devices are detected. So now Calamares installer should be able to see LVM logical volumes. Once my pull request lands, Calamares should also support partitioning operations on LVM logical volumes (although Calamares would need more work before installation and booting from root file system on LVM works). KPMcore library now only depends on Tier 1 Frameworks instead of Tier 3 (although, we will later require Tier 2).

Most of the work is now done in sfdisk branch. Currently, the only functional KDE Partition Manager backend uses libparted but sfdisk backend is now fully working (I would say RC quality). I would have merged in already but it requires util-linux 2.32 which is not yet released.
