Native look and feel

TuxMachines - Mon, 2017-02-06 22:37

We know that many Qt users want controls styled with a native look-and-feel. But offering that on platforms with no public styling API, is hard. A classic approach is to take snapshots of the native controls, tweak them, and use them as foreground or background in our own controls. Which is somewhat OK for static appearances. But when animations and transitions are involved, static pixmaps will only take you half the way. And since an OS can change style from one update to the next, taking snapshots runtime is risky. Using pre-grabbed snapshots is also something we don’t do because of legal considerations.

Verbally controlled Linux?

Reddit - Mon, 2017-02-06 22:22

I have a family member who will not be able to use their hands at all for quite a few months and I would like to put together a laptop that they can use while recovering. Is there a distro or something that would allow them to verbally control the window manager and various apps? Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks!

AMD Radeon R5 M430 support

Reddit - Mon, 2017-02-06 21:18

So, I recently bought Lenovo Yoga G510 laptop and I want to install Ubuntu GNOME 16.10 on it. However, there is one obstacle between my laptop and Linux. There is no support for AMD Radeon R5 M400 graphic drivers and I don't want to sacrifice an important feature for the sake of Linux. What should I do? Should I wait for AMD to upgrade their Catalyst driver or is there a workaround?
