A weekly dose of all thing Linux and open source with a slice of Pi for good measure.
Colour key – Venn Pedro
- That list of fixes reads a lot like a list of reasons not to use bleachbit.
- Use BleachBit to:
- Free disk space
- Reduce the size of backups and the time to create them by removing unnecessary files
- Maintain privacy
- Improve system performance (by vacuuming the Firefox database, for example)
- Prepare whole disk images for compression (common for “ghost” backups and virtual machines) by wiping free disk space
- So, this is like some type of cache cleaning software with file shredding?
- What’s the issue here?
- Is this guy worried about security or just the name?
- We talked about MATE 1.20 last week, this week we talk about the official Ubuntu flavour which will sport it out the box.
- New features and applet fixes.
- Minimal install option, if you want to Fedora the crap out of some Ubuntu.
- Ubuntu MATE images for the Raspberry Pi around the time 18.04.1 is released, which should be sometime in June.
- I will take the Mate 2018 challenge at some point.
- So, many, emojis.
Linux Scratch Tickets
- For those of you who consider Gentoo a little too mainstream.
- It’s LFS, and they only updated 34 packages from last time.
- That sounds low until you go “Oh, yeah! 34 packages is about all of them from the default ‘install’.”
- I just wanted to give this a plug.
- A Crowd-sourced central AppImage directory is a neat idea but this implementation needs some work.
- Search function wouldn’t go amiss.
- Also, I can’t help but feel like missed an opportunity to release this as an Electron app in an AppImage.
- Breaking: Linux kinda Just Works TM on laptops in 2018.
- Also, author does not know how to avoid the Windows tax.
- Electron nope, NEXT!
- Protip: Create a throwaway account and use that.
- 5 pages and nothing but radio silence.
- Suspend bug can take down your system.
- Chrome runs like junk.
- Strange flickering on secondary displays.
- Likes to reset Displayport (this happens after the monitor enters sleep)
- Stuck on 4.14.X until things get sorted.
Strange times, these.
- Great, now L33t hax0rs can install babbys first pentest distro from the Windows store.
- These are for those of you who didn’t buy the first gen.
- Not really all that appealing from an upgrade viewpoint.
Slice of Pi
- I don’t have heart to tell him ¼ to Blueteeth adapters exists and are wicked-cheap.
- Granted this allows for effects and such.
- This is a good example of learning 3 or 4 news things on the road to figuring out 1 thing.
Make me a Pi sammich
- Bobby drop tables.
- Now, if you can get this to do foreign languages you might have something.
- It just had to have wifi, didn’t it.
- There is no error handling if something goes wrong, the whole chain can be blocked.
- Adventures of Freso appears to have taken up the position as the L.G.C. Scribe… of business.
