Ubuntu Touch OTA-11 brings about serious improvement to the platform

TuxMachines - Tue, 2016-06-14 16:54

Aside from the amazing wireless convergence (and it truly is game-changing), the most important aspect of an update is simple...did the update improve the experience? After all, every developer wants their platform to always be improving. So, what's the end result with OTA-11? To the casual user, it might seem like the latest Ubuntu Touch image really didn't do much. However, the truth is much more telling than that. With the release of OTA-11, Ubuntu Touch now runs much smoother; apps are faster to open, animations are cleaner, and there's much less wait involved with regular usage. That doesn't mean Ubuntu Touch has been perfected. It's still not on par with the speed and efficiency of either Android or iOS, but it has made amazing leaps forward with OTA-11 and is closing the gap faster than anyone would have deemed possible.

Are there any inherent advantages of booting a Linux system in UEFI mode over BIOS?

I'm asking because I'll be switching to Arch soon, and it seems easier to install GRUB in BIOS mode.

HiDPI laptop with classic 1080p external monitor, can it work?

Reddit - Tue, 2016-06-14 15:41


I've already made a thread two days ago about overall hidpi support in linux but I'm going to bother you again, as I found out that multi-dpi settings are a sore point in linux and I could spend all my time on such a setup.

The laptop is a Thinkpad T460S 14' 1440p, the monitors are around 25' 1080p. I will spend most of my working day with the thinkpad as main screen and one or two external monitors.

Here's what I've learned :

  • hidpi settings work well enough in linux

  • but you can't set different DPI for each monitor in X11

  • only workaround I found is using xrandr scale

  • wayland will fix this, but it's not ready for production use yet (and this will be a work laptop, can't have it randomly crash)

So my questions are about the workaround, xrandr scale:

  • First of all, does anyone has experience with this kind of setup?

  • Will scale make the text blurry?

  • Does xrandr scale and xrandr dpi need to restart X, or will I need to close/reopen programs etc... for the changes to take effect

  • What's exactly the difference between setting the dpi and changing the scale? Is the visual result different?

Thanks for your help, sadly I don't have a linux available right now to test all of that myself.

Comparison of FOSS Messaging/VOIP Apps (X-Post from /r/opensource)

Reddit - Tue, 2016-06-14 14:23

This is a little project that I am doing as more and more FOSS communication tools are popping up. As it could be very subjective (and time consuming!) if I got all of this data myself, it would be appreciated if anyone would be willing to help fill out different boxes in this spreadsheet. The link to the public and editable google sheet is below.


The end goal is to compile a comparison table that can eventually be put onto Wikipedia so that both the general population and more technical users can be more informed when making decisions about using these programs. Any help is much appreciated, and if any creators of these applications have more accurate data, that would help even more. I've already filled out a couple columns to get started, so just copy and paste the check or cross if yes or no, and add additional information if needed (e.g. licensing details). Finally, it would be great if you could log in to google before editing so that I can see who did what.


PS: Cross- posted from /r/opensource to get more people (hopefully!) helping.
