Hey everyone! I switched to openbox a few weeks ago and I use feh to set the background on startup. Now I discovered that nautilus is changing the background whenever I execute it! (it's a similar wallpaper, an older one)
I discovered that nautilus also creates icons on my desktop and the right-click menu of openbox does not work anymore either.
So, I found out that I have to disable the flags ""show Desktop" which worked for me, and I have to disable "background_set", which still does not work (aka, nautilus still changes the wallpaper).
I used these linesgconftool-2 --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/show_desktop --type boolean false gconftool-2 --set /apps/nautilus/preferences/background_set --type boolean false
to make the changes and double checked it with gconf-editor. the checkbox is unchecked.
Why is nautilus still so ignorant?submitted by /u/perskes
LinuxInsider: If you're familiar with Puppy Linux but have not yet taken Simplicity for a walk, you're missing out some interesting Linux computing experiences.
grsecurity: As anticipated in public comments, the Linux Foundation is already beginning a campaign to rewrite history and mislead Linux users.
So what really happened? Apparently, the delay involves Google. According to Re/Code, Google has been delaying support for the Android version of the pressure-sensitive touch feature known as 3D Touch. Re/Code sources confirmed that the feature will not be part of the initial Android N release and will have to wait for a later release of the operating system, which most likely be a part of a maintenance update.
We're looking forward to an exciting week with I/O kicking off over in San Francisco on Wednesday. We're expecting big things from Google, and we're not just talking about Android Wear smartwatches.
No doubt that notepad ++ is a fabulous application for programming and general text editing, itr os one of the best know text editor. But, sometimes a administrator or programmer required a text editor with more rich features which can not be fulfilled by ordinary text editor, there are many text editors/IDE which can be used in place of notepad++, in this lesson we will discuss 10 alternative to notepad++ in Linux.

WebTorrent Desktop was updated to version 0.4.0 recently, receiving subtitles support, new "Create torrent" page and more.
Ba-ba-bam. Now, the number of puns and historic and cultural references that can be applied here is way, way too high. We have the mandatory Eurodance homage, but also the Google Chrome throw-a-hissy page and the Lonely Island Mother Lover song words. All good and well. But have you thought about Ubuntu, at all?
Snap is the name of the new application packaging format for the Ubuntu core system. It differs from the standard RPM and DEB and whatnot in that it contains all the dependencies required to run the program, so you do not really rely on the underlying system capabilities. In other words, this is the first attempt by Canonical to create portable Ubuntu applications. Welcome.
According to the changelog, it appears to fix more bug fixes for the usual frameworks and KDE apps
Some icons I made, you can find them in KDE Frameworks 5.22
The QOwnNotes icon became the official one. Give to this app a try, it’s super.
What will I be doing you ask? Well, as some people know Krita on Mac OS X is not quite there yet. Some of the new cool functionality added to Krita 3.0 is forcefully omitted from the OS X release. Deep down in the depths of Krita painting we paint decorations using Qt's kindly provided QPainter class. This class allows us to make pretty lines and shapes very easily, and is perfectly suited to drawing all of the overlay functionality (such as grids, cursors, guides, etc.). What could possibly go wrong there? Well, even though we are grateful to have such easy rendering functionality, the backend of those functions haven't exactly kept up with the times.
What have you been working on lately that you’d like to share at a QtCon talk? The Qt Community of developers wants to hear from you! Submit your proposal by Friday and get a chance to contribute to this one-off, unique Event in Berlin.
I see a very high value in compiling my own Qt, and on top of it all the KDE-made software that I use. This makes it very easy to fix bugs and add improvements to the software I use on a day to day basis. Nowadays I think many developers use distro packages for Qt or KF5 or even the whole environment except for the one app they're working on, but in my opinion this leads to "silo" thinking, with workarounds in upper layers rather than fixing issues at the right place.
So, here's a working and easy recipe for compiling all the Qt-based software you use.
Approximately half a year after its launch, during which time every single copy was sold, the $5 computer, Raspberry Pi Zero, makes a comeback with a built-in camera connector.
