Ubuntu GNOME maintainer Jeremy Bicha informs the community today, July 14, 2016, about the fact that the popular GNOME Maps application from the GNOME Stack has recently lost its free map tile service, MapQuest, which disabled access to their feed.
Of course, this automatically translates to the fact that as of July 12, 2016, GNOME Maps is no longer a functional application, and it would appear that it might take weeks, or even months for the GNOME development team responsible for the maintenance of the app to find a new free service for displaying the maps.
For the past few weeks I’ve been working on the first part of my project which consisted in getting rid of the deprecated GtkAction API (with the related GtkActionGroup, GtkUIManager) and port everything to GAction. This blog post is long overdue as I hoped I could finish the task before reporting on my project’s progress, considering the port one of the milestones of my project. However, without much knowledge about the specifics of GtkAction and GAction, I greatly underestimated the time I will spend on finishing my task, and therefore, I delayed my post up to this very moment, when my task is nearing completion. I will submit the patch after passing the patch by Michael for a final review.

I am NOT here to ask how VGA Passthrough is done, I am here for a question related to it, basically because of curiousity.
It is said that for VGA Passthrough one needs two GPUs, one for the Host, one for the Guest system.
Now I can't understand what the technical limitation is, that makes this a must. Why can't the Host just fall back to command line mode and "disable" the GPU and hand it over to the Guest?
I would understand this is a GPU was a must - and for some OS it probably is ;) - but it isn't in general.
What is the technical limitation and can it be overcome?

So, I've been a PC user for like 25+ years. I am very well versed with PC, however I am definitely not liking the direction Windows has gone pretty much since the departure of Windows XP. Windows 7 is tolerable, but this is neither here nor there.
Also, I have been for the last year or two disconnecting myself from a lot of what attracted me to computers in the first place. I have been minimizing my online presence in various ways, and generally scaling back technically.
Lately I have been thinking of installing some sort of free Linux OS on my home PC. I am looking for advice on which OS to go with. I would basically be using the PC for Internet browsing, POP email and possibly photo editing and archiving. I also have an extensive collection of MP3s.
So my question is, are there any free Linux based operating systems I could use on my home computer and still be able to access all of my aforementioned files stored on a Windows 7 64bit PC? Or would I be starting from scratch with Linux?

I have been trying to use org-mode in spite of the terrible interface for about a week now. My biggest issue so far is the seeming inability to capture tasks from the command line. As it is, I only use spacemacs for org-mode so I still need to go to the workspace I put emacs in and capture the task. Additionally I would like to be able to view the agenda from the command line. I have searched for this but have not found much. Honestly, I was very surprised to learn it was not a default feature.
Any advice regarding this would be helpful, thank you.submitted by /u/Hephaestus608
