Xiaomi is well known for their range of affordable smartphones and tablets, and the company continues to grow their device portfolio with some great options. After much anticipation, Xiaomi has finally taken the wraps off their latest smartphone offering at a launch event in Beijing earlier today. Here’s everything we know about the Xiaomi Redmi Pro!
The Redmi Pro features a full metal unibody construction with a brushed metal finish, and up front is a 2.5D glass that covers the 5.5-inch Full HD OLED display. The change to OLED, from the usually standard in this price range IPS LCD, is a nice touch, and should provide a more vivid and pleasing viewing experience.
The Document Foundation today announced that Ubuntu parent company Canonical has joined The Document Foundation Advisory Board. The foundation said Canonical is to provide "experience and insights" to increase the use of LibreOffice in the enterprise and government. Canonical joins the likes of KDE, GNOME, Red Hat, SUSE, and Google on the board.
The board's main purpose is to represent the foundation's sponsors and their needs to the Board of Directors, although the BoD isn't under obligation to accept or act on any proposals made by the advisory board. The BoD does, on occasion, solicit advice and guidance from the advisory board and the advisory board does make proposals on behalf of their members. Some of the other members on the Advisory Board include those listed above as well as the Free Software Foundation, Collabora, Intel, the French government, CloudOn, City of Munich government, and AMD.
Dear community, currently having tought times to make multiboot.
I got 2 physical discs /dev/sda - /dev/sda1 - Windows 10 - /dev/sda2 - Windows 7 /dev/sdb -/dev/sdb1 - Debian (Grub2)
Having problem with finding windows 7 entry in grub2 I used update-grub command for automatic entry find but Windows 7 is not there. Also When I try to boot up Windows 10 with grub after short loading of windows it says Innaccesible boot device and restarts . Maybe its problem that I installed Grub2 to second disk where only Linux is? I dont know please give me your advice ! :) Thank yousubmitted by /u/Michal_Gyurkovsky
Blackmagic Design today announced that Fusion visual effects software is now available on the Linux platform. Linux is extremely popular in the world's leading visual effects production companies and this new Linux release is a major announcement for the visual effects industry.
This new Linux version of Fusion and Fusion Studio means visual effects artists can select their preferred computing platform, as Fusion is now available on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. All project files are common, so customers can work collaboratively, even when different artists are running different platforms on the same job.
Blackmagic Design released a pair of announcements, the first revealing that Fusion visual effects software is now available on the Linux platform, and second that it has release version 1.0.2 of Duplicator.
Today, July 27, 2016, Canonical will unveil the 12th Over-the-Air (OTA) software update for its Ubuntu mobile operating system that runs on supported Ubuntu Phone and Ubuntu Tablet devices.
Elio Qoshi is the person behind ura, a fascinating design studio dedicated to improving design in free and open source projects. As part of that mission, ura works with projects of all budgets. When we talk about open source, we’re usually talking code first and then—maybe—documentation second. Design is often an after-thought. But as designers like Elio get involved in open source culture, that order could eventually change.
Frederic Peters has been happy to inform Softpedia about the availability of the fourth development release for the upcoming GNOME 3.22 "Karlsruhe" desktop environment for GNU/Linux operating systems.
David Mohammed has been extremely happy to inform Softpedia about the availability of the Ubuntu Budgie Remix 16.04.1 operating system, as part of the recent Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) release.
Not only is our first 4.0.0 alpha release here – but it is here relatively on schedule. If all goes according to plan we will have something stamped as stable before September hits. I would just like to be clear that this is far from a polished / finished product. I would encourage anyone wanting to write a review to wait to do so until our stable release. If you are not someone who is interested in helping find issues please wait as well.
Overlord, Overlord: Raising Hell and Overlord II are all now available on Steam for Linux. Overlord II is also a brand new port today!
Note: You may have issues if you previously purchased them from bundles and other random stores. VP has reached out to Codemasters to add Linux to them. If you're only buying it now, you will be fine.
Also, for the amount of complaints Mr Sweeney has, maybe it's time for him to be productive about it and start moving his company towards an open platform. Anyone know an open platform? Lin-something? Oh yes, Linux, that's it. Linux gives you SteamOS too remember now.
Only Unreal Tournament (the new one) looks like it will have Epic's support and possibly not even officially. The Linux version has been seriously lagging behind the Windows version, repeatedly breaking with major graphical issues and it still has no launcher on Linux. It may still be early, but they don't seem like they're really putting any effort into it.
Croteam have continued developing their Vulkan backend for The Talos Principle and have pushed the last beta to stable and released another beta with more Vulkan work.
Death Road to Canada is a brand new Linux game that released on Steam recently and a GOL user was kind enough to send me a copy to take a look. It's a randomly generated road trip with Zombies with lots of encounters and annoying people to find.
I've been having more fun with this than I probably should have. Exploring random abandoned "Y'all marts", dismembering zombies and watching their brains and other organs fly out is grim and hilarious. What's even more grim is walking over those organs then squishes them!
For those still playing Minecraft, you may know that Mojang is working on a new launcher that doesn't use Java (hooray!), but it might not run on Linux (boo!).
HaxeFlixel, a free and open source cross-platform game framework that was used in the creation of Defender's Quest is needing a bit of funding on IndieGoGo.
They need only $3,000 (even more helps obviously), as it's for a full time developer to work on it for a year. The core HaxeFlixel contributors are providing $3,000 themselves, so crowdfunding is just to top him up essentially.
Samuel Pitoiset continues being one of the most prolific Nouveau driver developers in recent times and today posted support for OpenGL tessellation on NVIDIA Maxwell GPUs and newer.
For the past decade NVIDIA GPUs have shipped with a proprietary micro-controller they've called Falcon (also for Nouveau users you may recall it through "FUC" for the Falcon micro-controller), but a next-gen controller is being built now for future NVIDIA GPUs and it's going to utilize the RISC-V ISA.
Wayland's Weston reference compositor picked up support for some new features this morning.
Finally landing within Weston Git this morning is the longstanding relative pointer protocol. The Wayland relative pointer protocol is currently an unstable protocol and after numerous mailing list patch series is finally in Weston Git. Relative pointer support is important for first person shooter games and other applications.
The usercopy protection was sent in today for pulling into the Linux 4.8 kernel.
This user-copy protection support isn't about any form of digital rights management but rather about safeguarding objects being copied to/from user-space. I covered this work in more detail a few days ago in Hardened Usercopy Appears Ready To Be Merged For Linux 4.8.
With the Linux 4.7 kernel came initial work on SMR drives, a.k.a. Shingled Magnetic Recording. With Linux 4.8 the SMR drive support continues to be improved.
Shingled Magnetic Recording is a magnetic storage tech used by HDDs with high storage density.
