The KDE project announced this past weekend the release of KDE Frameworks 5.25.0, another monthly update to the collection of over 70 add-ons for the Qt5 GUI toolkit and the latest KDE Plasma 5 desktop environment.
KDE Frameworks 5.25.0 comes in time for the recently released KDE Plasma 5.7.3 maintenance update of the modern and widely used Linux desktop, promising to update many of the core components, including but not limited to Attica, which now follows HTTP redirects, the Breeze icon set with lots of additions, extra CMake modules, KDE Doxygen tools, KXMLGUI, KWindowSystem, and KWidgetsAddons.
KDE apps like KTextEditor, KArchive, and Sonnet received bugfixes and other improvements in the KDE Frameworks 5.25.0. The release also comes with many other updated components, among which Plasma Framework, NetworkManagerQt, KXMLGUI, KCoreAddons, KService, Kross, Solid, Package Framework, KNotification, KItemModels, KIO, KInit, KIconThemes, KHTML, KGlobalAccel, KFileMetaData, and KDeclarative.
Getting new people into OSS projects is always a challenge. The Linux kernel is no different and has it's own set of challenges. This is a follow up and expansion of some of what I talked about at Flock about contributing to the kernel.
From August 2 – 5, the annual Fedora contributor conference, Flock, was held in the beautiful city of Kraków, Poland. Fedora contributors from all over the world attend for a week of talks, workshops, collaboration, fun, and community building (if you’re tuning in and not sure what Fedora is exactly, you can read more here). Talks range from technical topics dealing with upcoming changes to the distribution, talks focusing on the community and things working well and how to improve, and many more. The workshops are a chance for people normally separated by thousands of miles to work and collaborate on real issues, problems, and tasks in the same room. As a Fedora contributor, this is the “premier” event to attend as a community member.
The source code of Google's latest operating system has emerged, and it looks like all new code from the ground up.
The Fuchsia project can be found here, and uses an entirely new kernel, "Magenta." It boots on ARM and x86, and the authors say they've managed to boot it on a Raspberry Pi. The IPC part is Mojo and higher up the stack is support for Google's Flutter graphics.
Datamation: Is Android or iPhone best for business?
Ok, sorry in advance if this does not belong here. Anyway, I have a mid 2015 MacBook Pro, I just installed a program called Parallels Desktop and installed Ubuntu. I can not for the the life of me get the screen to fit properly. I've tried the tweak tools and terminal and changing the settings in the Parallels app itself nothing is working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
P.s. I'm new to Ubuntu and linux for the most part

Hello, I happen to have a connection with a data plan and need to conserve my data usage for the next two weeks and focus on coding, as my self control is pretty shite I figured I would edit facebook and youtube, as these are my biggest time and data sinks, into my hosts file to redirect at 0.0.0.0
now the thing is how do I prevent myself from editing it back (passing that power at another person), while making the file still readable by system?
Thanks for any feedback, also I'd like to add that taking myself out of the admin group is not an option.submitted by /u/Kitten_Basher

I'm looking for a website that doesn't just provide a quick one paragraph description but goes into the nitty gritty. I'm a up and coming systems administrator and unfortunately school didn't teach me jackshit about that stuffsubmitted by /u/j0hn_r0g3r5
I'm starting to spend more and more time on terminal now and doing things from command line is easier. But I feel like the default terminal app in KDE, Konsole, is somewhat lacking in this regard.
Which terminal apps does /r/linux use and are there any advantages or unique features you like about them?submitted by /u/theluggagekerbin
The day old question, but which distro should I use.
My long term career goal is to be a system admin, and have tinkered with Linux and took a Linux+ prep class.
I am an avid pc gamer, however enjoy a smooth system when I'm just looking stuff up, and like decent audio control.
Still going to try to run a vm using gpu passthrough to game on Windows (we will see)
Can't decide if I should go with a debian or rpm based system :( advice?
Fedora looks good, or Ubuntu or mint ?

I work with a cloud based product. We use Linux virtual machine as our servers. One challenge we faced is during scaling up - one of our software components was using cryptographic algorithm which needed random number generation. The Linux uses real hardware to create/gather randomness(Entropy). Since I read about it hear, I was able to predict it. This slowed down responsiveness of the application very much, because, in a virtualized platform, there is no real hardware. We had to do some workaround to fix it. I want to learn more on to understand where to expect the next challenge. Networking?submitted by /u/anandmallaya
FOSSforce: The reason why use of the Linux desktop has never taken off has nothing to do with the operating system and everything to do with money.
