QT enables support for Vulkan, GNOME gets tweaked, Fedora 26 Beta adds a Night Light, and Inkscape moves to GitLab. All this, plus your feedback.

- Kudos to Ikey for porting the app to Python 3!
- It’s now possible to place the windows buttons on the left side without messing with dconf!
- It’s now possible to see the Gnome Shell and GTK version from this tool, no more messing with apt!
- Jeremy is right, there’s no need for a maximize button, I’m removing is right now… there, I feel much better now!
- Gnome Tweak Tool is amazing!
- I don’t see any improvements regarding the scaling of GTK stuff.
- Ikey was complaining about it a while back on G+ when he got his UHD screen.
- Good thing about the GNOME Tweak tool is that it works with proper desktops instead of just HUDs.
- I can’t imagine running a DM that requires the use of a separate tool for “advance” configuration.
What this program do
- First thing I noticed is that it’s inspired by a software named winsys (by the same author)
- I appreciate the intent but I wonder if this can really be reliable
- This should provide linux newbies new and exciting ways to break their box!
- It’ll certainly lower the time from first install to full breakage from a few hours to a few minutes.
- If you’re just getting into Linux, stay away from this!
- You will break something, otherwise.
- “executing actions to blow of mouse click”
- At least that’s right at the top so you know to immediately close the tab.
- Enable-disable sudo without pass? So, Windows mode?
- First thing to remember: Vulkan is cross platform, DX12 isn’t
- Second thing: it’s a good idea to isolate platform specific code and provide generic interfaces
- Now both Gtk and Qt have plans for Vulkan support!
- Vulkan rendering in my GUI is something I’ve been asking for awhile!
- This is a step in the right direction, but we still need a lot more.
Poof, no more data on my phone
- We’re not spending more than 3 minutes on a goddamn file system for mobile devices.
- Since Android devices are much more likely to be shut down abruptly, this gives even more opportunities for btrfs to crash the filesystem
- This is likely to be only for the system partition so your personal data should remain safe
- I’m sure Google wouldn’t ship devices with btrfs as I’ve experienced it. This might lead to an usable filesystem in the end!
- It really baffles me when Google asks btrfs maintainers for the status of encryption. Can’t they implement it themselves and send patches? Aren’t they a multi-billion company with thousands of top-notch engineers? What don’t they understand in the concept of open source?
- You’re talking about the people that polled Chrome(ium) devs if they should remove ext3/4 support from ChromeOS.
- Something they didn’t need worry about and decided it was a good idea to just scrap it.
- Google doesn’t give a flying rodents backside about Open Source or anything the sort.
- They use it because they can, without having to pay Microsoft, Apple, etc., money for Licenses.
- This might provide a nice way to version large directories of binary data which makes me very happy.
- I don’t care if this is yet another systemd related project, I only care about whether the software is actually any good.
- And I think systemd now provides even more functionality than svchost.exe.
- Next step, a built in text editor!
- If you would have asked me what large open source project is still hosted on Launchpad, I would have replied Inkscape, now I have no idea (not counting Ubuntu obviously).
- Only good things will come out of this.
- I had never questioned the proprietary state of Github until I read this.
- I always associated it with open source, free software and source available software.
- But yeah, it is very much a proprietary implementation of Git.
Full Time Farmer Cap
- What you’ve seen so far is Solus maintained by Ikey Doherty as a side project. Now imagine what it will be like when he works full time on it! That’s right, you can’t, it’s too overwhelming!
- 20% better XML performance.
- So… Ikey is going at it full-time bringing his undivided attention to Solus.
- It supports MATE and possibly, maybe, KDE in the future.
- The /lib* and /usr/lib* folders will eventually be merged.
- As much as can deal with Ubuntu MATE, it’s still Ubuntu.
- Sorry, Martin! I think I may be changing to Solus at some point.
- I still think you should rename the rolling release Punching Bag.
- 2 new spins, one based on LxQt and the other one named Python Classroom Lab. I approve!
- I always liked the idea of LXQt.
- LXDE with Qt and KWin as the window manager.
- But every time I tried it it managed to break in new and interesting ways.
- Go Language 1.8 /w 32-bits MIPS support.
- Simultaneously releasing 64-bit F26 Beta for ARM (AArch64), Power (both little and big endian) and s390x architectures.
- Workstation edition includes Night Light for the two people who don’t run their monitors on minimum brightness.
- So this is the version where they ship multi process Firefox for everyone
- Other than that, I don’t see a lot of changes
- Check about:support and see if Multiprocess Windows is enabled.
- It could be disabled because addons.
- Force: about:config create a new boolean pref named browser.tabs.remote.force-enable and set it to true.
Slice of Pi
- Moral of this story, don’t use the default credentials in your RasPis.
- Better version of the moral, don’t use the default credentials on *any* device exposed to the internet (if the device is behind a router then you’re probably fine)
- vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config
