Cheap netbook/laptop recommendations for learning Linux.

Reddit - Mon, 2016-05-16 01:33

I'm looking for a cheap laptop/netbook to run Ubuntu. I'm looking to learn Linux. I would like something less than $200. Would like something somewhat fast and a screen size around 13-15 inches and good battery life. Also the slimmer the better. I'll just be using it for browsing and some simple programming. Any recommendations? I've heard Chromebooks are a good option as long as it's x86.

5 Highly Promising Music Players

LXer - Mon, 2016-05-16 01:03
Linux is blessed with some excellent mature music players. My favorites are Amarok, Audacious, Banshee, and Tomahawk. Awesome open source applications. In particular, I have been a devotee of Banshee for a decade, using it as my main media player. But I am keen to explore potential replacements and have tried almost all available music players. My journey has identified some very promising music players which are worth exploring.

Finally got Skype for Web to work on Linux

Reddit - Mon, 2016-05-16 00:09

People probably know about this workaround, since it is pretty simple, but, nevertheless, I didn't know about it, so I'm gonna share to help those just like me. I finally got Skype for Web to work on Linux. Recently, Microsoft removed the requirement for a plugin on Microsoft Edge to use Skype for Web. So, I got Skype for Web to work through the following steps:

  1. Install User Agent Overrider from the Firefox add-ons store

  2. Set user agent to Windows / Edge

  3. Restart Firefox

  4. Go to web.skype.com

  5. Allow access to microphone and notifications

  6. Make a test call with echo123

  7. Adjust microphone sensitivity based on the recording I made with echo123

  8. Enjoy!

Tips to increase battery's life on linux

Reddit - Sun, 2016-05-15 23:55

Hi. I just bought a Lenovo G50 and installed ubuntu on it. Everything works fine, my only problem is the battery life. I'm getting 2 hours of battery. This is ridiculous, really. I installed tlp and try another tips, but that don't seen to make too much effect. Do you have any other tips? This is just a ubuntu problem or other distro are affected too?
