    • PurismFree Software Support Is Critical to Its Success – Purism

      I’ve been in many “Linux on the Desktop” debates over the years and my stance today is largely the same as two decades ago: if you want free software to succeed, it must be pre-installed on hardware where all hardware features work, with a hardware vendor that supports it. It doesn’t matter nearly as much how easy a distribution is to install (it’s been easier to install than alternatives for twenty years), because people generally don’t install Windows or MacOS from scratch either, they just buy a computer with everything set up out of the box. Unlike twenty years ago, people are more familiar with computers today and easily switch between Windows, MacOS, ChromeOS, Android, and iOS. I’d argue PureOS is as easy to use as the rest.

        That supercomputers produce impactful, lasting value is a basic tenet among the HPC community. To make the point more formally, Hyperion Research has issued a new report, The Economic and Societal Benefits of Linux Supercomputers. Inclusion of Linux is fundamental here. The powerful, open source operating system was embraced early by the HPC world and helped spawn a huge HPC application ecosystem that makes these systems so broadly useful.

      • Video CardzNVIDIA Releases Open-Source GPU Kernel Modules

        This release is a significant step toward improving the experience of using NVIDIA GPUs in Linux, for tighter integration with the OS and for developers to debug, integrate, and contribute back. For Linux distribution providers, the open-source modules increase ease of use. They also improve the out-of-the-box user experience to sign and distribute the NVIDIA GPU driver. Canonical and SUSE are able to immediately package the open kernel modules with Ubuntu and SUSE Linux Enterprise Distributions.

        Developers can trace into code paths and see how kernel event scheduling is interacting with their workload for faster root cause debugging. In addition, enterprise software developers can now integrate the driver seamlessly into the customized Linux kernel configured for their project.

        This will further help improve NVIDIA GPU driver quality and security with input and reviews from the Linux end-user community.

        With each new driver release, NVIDIA publishes a snapshot of the source code on GitHub. Community submitted patches are reviewed and if approved, integrated into a future driver release.

        Refer to the NVIDIA contribution guidelines and overview of the driver release cadence and life-cycle documentation for more information.

      • IT ProBest Linux file managers 2022: Customise your workflows | IT PRO

        The file manager is the direct interface between the user and what’s stored on the computer. Most average users will be familiar with either Windows File Explorer or macOS Finder, which represent the preinstalled default options for the world’s two most popular desktop operating systems. The Linux ecosystem, however, offers considerably more flexibility in this regard, allowing users to pick from a range of options to find the perfect file manager.

        Your needs in this department will depend on what your file management workflow actually is. If you’re an advanced user with a wide range of file management duties, you might appreciate a Linux file manager with some customisation along with specialised features.

        On the other hand, if you’re setting it up for someone else, such as a non-technical user, you might prefer something with conventional looks and a stripped down interface. All this is before we even get into personal preferences for functionality and layout.

        These are the issues that we’ve taken into consideration. The selection we present below are all good file managers for Linux users, but they all have their strengths and weaknesses.

      • How to Install Bugzilla on Ubuntu 20.04 – RoseHosting

        In this blog post, we are going to explain in step-by-step detail on how to install Bugzilla on Ubuntu 20.04.

        Bugzilla is an open-source web-based bug tracking system written in Perl. This testing tool is developed and maintained by the Mozilla project, and the team of developers is still developing and expanding its features. The main purpose of this detect-tracking software is to track the bugs, issues, and other change requests. The compatibility of the software on multiple operating systems like Windows, macOS, and Linux makes it more popular than any other.

      • H2S MediaHow to Install OpenShot Video Editor on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy

        Let’s learn the working but straightforward way to install OpenShot Video editor on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy JellyFish Linux using the command terminal.

        Openshot is the right tool for any video amateur. The free open-source software allows you to edit your videos and add effects to them with simple means.

        The intuitive video editor cuts films and enriches them with supplementary film and sound material. In the end, you can export your work to a freely selectable format. In this workshop, we will show you what you should consider when using Openshot.

        The interface essentially consists of four areas: in the menu bar, you can access the most important functions with the help of icons, in the left window you manage your project files as well as the transitions and effects, the main window shows the results of your work. Finally, in the lower area are various tracks that you can use to bring your content into a chronological sequence.

        Further, the OpenShot Video Editor is also a lightweight tool that does not require high hardware resource PC to edit videos. It was started as a hobby project and later became a popular free editing tool that has a straightforward and clean user interface.

        It comes with essential tools to instantly cut, join, and add effects however it quickly reaches its limits for experienced users.

      • VituxCommon uses of the Touch command on Rocky Linux 8 – VITUX

        In Linux distributions, each document that is created on the system is provided with some timestamps. Each document must store the information about the last access time, the last modification time, and the last modification time. So all the timestamp information is updated when you create, access or modify a file.

        The “touch” command is a program used in Linux operating systems to create, edit, and modify timestamps of a particular file. In this article, we will examine some common examples of the Linux touch command in Rocky Linux 8

      • OpenSource.comTravel off the grid and still send emails with putmail

        In “normal times” my wife and I travel a lot. And as anyone who similarly travels a lot knows, connectivity can be very expensive. We were recently on a cruise and the “Premium” ship-board internet cost upwards of $200 for the full 7 days, and even then it had all the drawbacks of satellite internet in terms of speed and congestion. So to make my life easier, I set up offlineimap to download my mail, dovecot to let me use an IMAP client to read my mail, and msmtp to send mail from my various accounts. I covered much of this setup in 2020, and the rest is documented in many places online.

      • ID RootHow To Install LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS – idroot

        In this tutorial, we will show you how to install LAMP Stack on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, LAMP is an acronym for Linux, Apache, MariaDB, and PHP. It is an open-source platform and works on the Linux operating system. LAMP stack uses Apache web server, MariaDB relational database management system, and PHP object-oriented scripting language.

        This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the LEMP Stack on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.

      • Make Use OfHow to Create a Daemon on Linux

        Daemons are processes that do not run directly under the control of the user but serve in the background. Usually, they start on system startup and run continuously until the system shuts down. The only difference between these and normal processes is that they do not send messages to the console or screen in any way.

        Here’s how you can create a daemon on a Linux machine.

        Between 2022-05-10 and 2022-05-17 there were 19 New Steam games released with Native Linux clients. For reference, during the same time, there were 267 games released for Windows on Steam, so the Linux versions represent about 7.1 % of total released titles. Here’s a quick pick of the most interesting ones…

      • The Register UKThe sad state of Linux desktop diversity and accessibility • The Register

        As a mainstream desktop OS, Linux is doing better than ever. The Year of Linux on the Desktop came some time ago, and it is ChromeOS (Chromebooks were outselling Macs until recently). But there’s a problem – there is almost no diversity of design.

        Let’s count the number of desktop designs in active development. Not desktop projects, different user interfaces. There’s GNOME, Ubuntu’s Unity somehow still hanging on in there, and Elementary OS’s Pantheon. All have a vaguely macOS-like look: a top panel (woefully underused except by Unity, so mostly wasted space) and a dock, which if you are lucky you can reposition.

        So, arguably, that’s… one.

        As our usual readers know, the YaST team is lately involved in many projects not limited to YaST itself. So let’s take a look to some of the more interesting things that happened in those projects in the latest couple of weeks.

        Improvements in YaST

        As you can imagine, a significant part of our daily work is invested in polishing the versions of YaST that will be soon published as part of SUSE Linux Enterprise 15-SP4 and openSUSE Leap 15.4, whose first Release Candidate version is already available.

        That includes, among many other things, improving the behavior of yast2-kdump in systems with Firmware-Assisted Dump (fadump) or adding a bit of extra information to the installation progress screen that we recently simplified.

    • Fedora Family / IBM

      • Red Hat OfficialApplication connectivity in a hybrid cloud

        A successful hybrid cloud architecture is one that addresses how to build, deploy, manage and connect a hybrid mix of applications across a hybrid infrastructure environment. These applications will span multiple infrastructure footprints—across cloud providers and customer datacenters and multiple Kubernetes clusters, as well as systems that run on vendor management systems (VMSs), bare metal and edge environments.

        The requirements for application connectivity bring together concepts and technologies that have previously been considered distinct. An ideal hybrid cloud networking solution must address traffic concerns in a unified way, managing the low-level global networking infrastructure and the higher-level application connectivity concerns. Kubernetes and Linux containers provide the foundation for connecting applications that run on that platform to end users, to other application services on the same platform, and to services that run outside of the platform.

      • ArduinoIntrovention is a wearable device that can help diagnose movement disorders early | Arduino Blog

        Conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremors often present themselves as uncontrollable movements or spasms, especially near the hands. By recognizing when these troubling symptoms appear, earlier treatments can be provided and improve the prognosis for the patient compared to later detection. Nick Bild had the idea to create a small wearable band called “Introvention” that could sense when smaller tremors occur in hopes of catching them sooner.

        An Arduino Nano 33 IoT was used to both capture the data and send it to a web server since it contains an onboard accelerometer and has WiFi support. At first, Bild collected many samples of typical activities using the Edge Impulse Studio and fed them into a K-means clustering algorithm which detects when a movement is outside of the “normal” range. Once deployed to the Arduino, the edge machine learning model can run entirely on the board without the need for an external service.

      Zinc is a search engine that does full text indexing. It is a lightweight alternative to Elasticsearch and runs using a fraction of the resources. It uses bluge as the underlying indexing library.

      It is very simple and easy to operate as opposed to Elasticsearch which requires a couple dozen knobs to understand and tune which you can get up and running in 2 minutes

      It is a drop-in replacement for Elasticsearch if you are just ingesting data using APIs and searching using kibana (Kibana is not supported with zinc. Zinc provides its own UI).

          The JavaScript ecosystem has been benefiting lately from pieces of its dev tooling being (re)written in Rust. Projects like swc, Parcel 2 and parcel-css, deno, dprint and others have brought us tremendous performance improvements with tasks like bundling, formatting, etc. Recently, my favourite Rust-based, HTTP testing tool gained the ability to be run in node/npm projects, and I wanted to show you how it works.

          Hurl is a command-line tool for running HTTP requests defined in simple text files (*.hurl). I learned about it by chance on Twitter over a year ago, and have been using and teaching it to my programming students ever since. The name comes from the fact that it builds on top of curl’s HTTP code. The real benefit to Hurl is that it lets you write simple, declarative tests that read just like the HTTP requests and responses they model. Oh, and it runs them ridiculously fast!

      • Gemini and tech degrowth

        When we talk about “the internet” today, for the most part, we’re talking about a platform that was once called “the world wide web”. The web consists of servers running HTTP, which send HTML (and other documents) to web browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome.

        But it wasn’t always like this. When I started using the ’net, e-mail, chat rooms, and discussion forums all had their own protocols (such as SMTP, IRC, and NNTP, respectively) and a plethora of client programs to interact with them. These things still exist — as open standards, they would be difficult to kill off entirely — but their share of internet traffic has drastically decreased as “web applications” have taken over these roles.


        Gemini hits almost all of these points. The protocol is basically finalized. Browser development is coming along, but for the most part, the only thing Gemini needs is more people from more backgrounds using it (there was a burst of interest in 2020 and things have slowed a bit since then; the community is generally delightful but understandably skews tech-savvy).

        Before I conclude, I must acknowledge that Gemini didn’t spring from the ether fully-formed. Over the past few years, there’s been a subculture growing around the curation of a “small internet”, with people posting content to Gopher (a protocol which predates HTTP and is even more bare-bones than Gemini); building lightweight, JavaScript-free websites (like the web version of this ’log); and generally doing things in remote terminals on public-access Unix hosts that comprise the “tildeverse” (like retrace.club, my host). Gemini is just one offshoot of this movement, and I’m sure we’ll see more.

  25. EPO Abolishing Workers' Rights and Creating Second-Class Workers in Direct Violation of the European Patent Convention (EPC)

    The EPO‘s presidents Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos have demolished any remnant of EPC compliance; this institution must be reobooted immediately and all the managers sacked if not prosecuted

  26. [Meme] Trying to Circumvent the European Patent Convention is Like Playing With Fire

    The EPO‘s repeated violations of the European Patent Convention (EPC) will make António Campinos an asylum seeker like his father, seeking political shelter like Benoît Battistelli, who virtually went into hiding in 2018 (when his diplomatic immunity ended and his EPO crimes, like the Benalla affair, came to light)

  27. EPO Management Severely Harms the Health of Staff by Bullying Them

    EPO management that breaks the law wants the staff to blindly cooperate; failing to achieve full cooperation (in crimes), the managers are increasingly bullying the workers, causing some of them to get ill (in the past this led to a lot of suicides)

  28. [Meme] Executing the EPC (as in Killing It, Not Following It)

    Vichy Battistelli and his French friend have basically killed the EPC, i.e. they committed crimes to turn the EPO into a private bank instead of a patent office; who will hold them accountable and when?

  29. At the EPO, “Bringing Teams Together” or “New Management of Office Space” is Another Step Towards EPO Outsourcing

    The Local Staff Committee Munich (LSC Munich/LSCMN) and Central Staff Committee (CSC) raise awareness of a scheme that may result in only “33% of staff (at best) [having] a permanently allocated desk.” Shades of what the Office dictator Benoît Battistelli did to Judge Corcoran after he repeatedly won in court and his reinstatement was forced, whereupon he found himself back but without a desk

  30. [Meme] Battistelli the Second (Battistelli II)

    Benoît Battistelli‘s French buddy António Campinos is destroying what’s left of the EPO; as the 50th anniversary approaches it’s not clear if the EPO has any future at all (laws aren’t obeyed and new hires aren’t examiners but a disposable workforce, akin to scabs, that doesn’t meet the requirements explicitly specified in the EPC)
