I am looking for some project ideas which will help me improve my Linux programming skills. I know C a bit and have done some work on device drivers in Linux, so was looking for some low level project ideas. Currently I am also doing a project on android to extract GPS signals using C language. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.submitted by /u/ayu55h
Last week it was VI, this week eMACS proves it's still alive and well.
FOSSbytes: Along with GNU Bash, many new changes have also been brought to GNU Readline, which is a software library that provides history and line-editing capabilities to Bash.
Hey all. To begin, I should mention I'm not an expert with linux but we've been using it in our development for the last 5 years. I do the testing so I know my way around the things our system uses but that's about it. We are moving from windows to centOS for our display portion of the software and our developer has said we should pick the desktop or window manager to be used on our system. This is backwards to me but I lost that battle.
What we are looking for is a windows manager or desktop environment that we can completely lock down and only allow access to the application we specify. I'm having trouble finding a window manager that does what we need mostly because I'm not sure the key words to be looking for. A couple of the requirements we have:
We have a working idea of having displays open in quadrants on the screen and then being allowed to go full screen if the user desires. Here's a rough mockup of what we are hoping for. Basically opening an application in any one of the quadrants initially limits the size just to that quadrant. Hitting a full screen button would allow the application to use all four quadrants.
That's what I'm working with right now. Does anyone have any window manager recommendations or keywords I should be searching for?submitted by /u/ThrowMeTheRock
Hyperledger, a cross-industry collaborative effort started by the Linux Foundation and joined by many banks, giant tech companies, blockchain specific companies and others, with the aim of developing an open source protocol for private blockchain use, has extended its hand to the public blockchain community in what appears to be an offer of partnership and closer collaboration.
I didn't blog about Games since quite some time and the app changed a lot since 3.18. 3.20 was quite a small update featurewise: it added support for MAME and Neo Geo Pocket games, added the About dialog, allowed l10n of the application, added a Preferences window listing the available plugins and fixed other small bugs, but this release mainly saw refactoring work with the introduction of the plugins system where plugins allow to list games: the Steam plugin lists Steam games and the SNES plugin lists SNES games.
There are a number of articles, blogs and social media posts out with headlines like ‘SUSE’s been bought by HPE.’ Clearly, this is a misunderstanding of what was announced last week but once a meme is out there, others often follow and echo without checking out the source information carefully.
So, lets clear things up by calling out some of the facts:
Now, if this was any other article I would be laughing and citing it as an example of how Wikipedia is seriously failing, but in this case it’s had an adverse and detrimental effect on you, the backers of this project. There exists now a public record - an accusation by a Senior Wikipedia Administrator - that you are “sock puppets” with a “vested conflict of interest” in making statements on Wikipedia. Worse than that I have had to invest considerable time in ensuring that the Wikipedia article does not bring the EOMA68 project into disrepute, by being comprised of false and misleading statements. That’s several days worth of potential delay to fulfilling the promises that I’ve made to you. So for that and many other reasons which I’ve documented on the page, I’m supporting the “Deletion” of the Wikipedia Page. The thing is: what people actually collaboratively developed (before the COI-inspired editing began) was actually really good, so that has been preserved on the “talk” page of the elinux.org EOMA68 Specification. But what’s up there now is just… utterly misleading.
A Samsung smartphone carrying the model number SM-Z200F and manufactured in Indonesia has been officially certified today (September 16, 2016) by the Directorate General of Resources and Equipment of Post and Information (DG SDPPI), the local authority under whose purview that falls.
The Samsung Z2 which is known to have the model number SM-Z200F had earlier landed the Indonesian agency on August 22 for evaluation and testing. The status of the Z2 changed yesterday after completion of the testing and was indicated as awaiting approval. However, that approval did drop today.
Taskwarrior is a simple, straight-forward command-line based TODO app for Ubuntu/Linux. This open-source app has to be one of the easiest of all CLI based apps I've ever used. Taskwarrior helps you better organize yourself, and without installing bulky new apps which sometimes defeats the whole purpose of TODO apps.
Lots of changes (HTTP/2, Shard director, ban lurker improvements, ...) and info on upgrading to Varnish 5!
As you already know, Wireshark is an open-source protocol analyzer software, very used for monitoring the network traffic.
The latest version available is Wireshark 2.2.0 which has been recently released, bringing multiple small fixes.
As you may know, GIMP is an open-source photo manipulation software, being a good alternative to Adobe Photoshop.
The latest version available is GIMP 2.8.18, which has been recently released.
Some of the popular and frequently used system resource generating tools available on the Linux platform include vmstat, netstat, iostat, ifstat and mpstat. They are used for reporting statistics from different system components such as virtual memory, network connections and interfaces, CPU, input/output devices and more.
I work on Qt-based Telegram Connection Manager for Telepathy and today I finally released the first version: 0.1.0.
If you don’t know about the project, then you can read the previous post with introduction.
Please note that though I also work on KDE Telepathy, there is no any dependency on KDE, so the Connection Manager can benefit Empathy, Jolla (Messages), Ubuntu IM client and any other software, powered by Telepathy.
Finally my experience with KMail is a good experience, and I think I won’t need to go back to Thunderbird. Guys, you did great job since KDE4 on this project. There is still some bugs and UX issues, but IMHO you are on the right tracks. Keep up the good work!
We have based the new IDE on the most recent QtCreator upstream release, which brings a lot of new features and fixes.
The announcement of KDE Neon dev/unstable switching to Wayland by default raised quite a few worried comments as NVIDIA’s proprietary driver is not supported. One thing should be clear: we won’t break any setups. We will make sure that X11 is selected by default if the given hardware setup does not support Wayland. Nevertheless I think that the amount of questions show that I should discuss this in more detail.
I was looking for something like Photoshop but for drawing that wasn’t that expensive and had good tools. Then I came across Krita, which is a free program, that was one thing, and it has a lot of tools, which most free programs haven’t got.
The upgraded boost package in slackware-current last week had broken LibreOffice’s “localc” program. Which is typical because I compile LibreOffice with a “–without-system-boost” flag. Apparently a dependency on the system’s boost libraries gets added nevertheless. Patches to cure this behaviour are very welcome!
Thus it became necessary to compile new packages for slackware-current. Co-incidentally there was also a new LibreOffice release last week: a minor upgrade to the 5.2 series, check out the announcement on the Document Foundation blog . And note their designation of this release: “LibreOffice 5.2.1, targeted at technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users, provides a number of fixes over the major release announced in August. For all other users and enterprise deployments, TDF suggests LibreOffice 5.1.5 “.
As mentioned on sunweaver’s blog Debian’s GTK-3+ v3.21 breaks Debian MATE 1.14, Gtk3 is breaking apps all around. But not only Mate, probably many other apps are broken, too, in particular Nemo (the file manager of Cinnamon desktop) has redraw issues (bug 836908), and regular crashes (bug 835043).
In the last week I played a bit with UDD (Ultimate Debian Database). After some experiments I did a script to generate a daily report about source packages in Debian. This report is useful to choose a package that needs help.
I’m pleased to learn that Ubuntu has just updated WebKitGTK+ from 2.10.9 to 2.12.5 in Ubuntu 16.04. To my knowledge, this is the first time Ubuntu has released a major WebKit update. It includes fixes for 16 security vulnerabilities detailed in WSA-2016-0004 and WSA-2016-0005.
Cloud storage services like Dropbox or Google Drive make it easy to store your files online and access them across a range of devices. But if you don’t want to give Google or Dropbox that much control over your data, you can also set up your own “private cloud” by installing OwnCloud or Nextcloud software on a server.
