        The Dell XPS 13 Plus Developer Edition with Ubuntu 22.04 Long Term Support (LTS) will arrive on August 23rd. "This means, of course, Canonical and Dell officially have been certified for Ubuntu 22.04 LTS," writes ZDNet's Steven Vaughan-Nichols. "So if you already have a current XPS 13 Plus, you can install Ubuntu 22.04 and automatically receive the same hardware-optimized experience that will ship with the new Developer Edition."

      • Ubuntu PitGoogle Chrome OS Flex: Breathe New Life Into Old Computer

        Google has announced a new operating system for computers which is called Chrome OS Flex. Basically, this is a new version of ChromeOS. In February of this year, Google began testing Chrome OS Flex for the first time. But now the beta mode is over, and ‍Google has finally fixed 600 bugs to make Flex available to everyone. Google Chrome OS Flex may be installed and used on older PCs and Macs.

        The last year’s December, Google bought Neverware. Google’s main purpose for acquisition of Neverware is to acquire Neverware’s product CloudReady. Basically, CloudReady allowed customers to switch their old PCs to Chrome OS.

        Now ChromeOS Flex replaces the services of CloudReady. It was released less than a year after Microsoft released Windows 11. We hope this development will reduce the hardware requirements because now old computers can upgrade with the latest OS.

      • Make Use OfUnderstanding the Linux Kernel Versioning Scheme

         Each Linux kernel release has a different version number associated with it. Have you ever wondered how the Linux kernel version numbers are formed?

        If you've been a Linux user for a long time, you'd know that Linux distributions have unique versions and each version has a specific codename. The Linux kernel also has different version numbers, which act as an identifier for the series the kernel belongs to. However, there's a difference between how kernel versions were formed earlier and how Linus Torvalds names them now.

        By the end, you'll be more familiar with the Linux kernel versioning scheme and will feel more comfortable reading kernel version numbers and identifying the various features associated with a specific release.

      • The Register UKGetting Linux onto a non-approved laptop ● The Register

        Some of the changes in modern kit, especially portables, seem to be intentionally obstructive to Linux users however you can mostly work around them.

        The Reg FOSS desk recently reported on this year's Ubuntu laptop from Dell. It's a good thing to have major vendors shipping kit that is approved and certified for Linux, but it doesn't help if you have a non-approved model. We recently battled with such a machine – this is the report from the front line. For reference, it's a Dell Latitude 5420, UEFI, Core i5, SSD only, USB-C, and USB-3.

        We are going to assume that your laptop comes with Windows pre-installed, simply because most of them do. Apple laptops are a whole other world of suffering, and since the Intel ones are on the way out and the sole distro for Arm-powered kit isn't quite there yet, we'll leave that for another day.

        The first few things you should do are easier under Windows, though, so don't wipe it just yet. In fact, we suggest that you don't wipe it at all. As a general principle, unless you're very short of space, we recommend dual-booting. You can shrink a Windows C drive down quite a lot, and having a fallback OS to hand can be handy in emergencies.

        Secondly, if it's a company machine, check with the IT department that you're allowed to do this. Many won't let you, and it's not worth losing your job.

        Wouldn’t it be great if GIT supported a command like “svn export”? Developers that made the switch from Subversion to GIT can relate to this question. With the “svn export” command, you can obtain a clean directory tree of your repository. That means without any version control related files. Think .git directory or those .gitignore files. Unfortunately, no “git export” command exists. This article presents a few different approaches that resembles what “svn export” does, but then using GIT.

      • VituxHow to Kill Zombie Processes in Ubuntu

        A zombie or a defunct process in Linux is a process that has been completed, but its entry still remains in the process table due to a lack of correspondence between the parent and child processes. Usually, a parent process keeps a check on the status of its child processes through the wait() function. When the child process has finished, the wait function signals the parent to completely exit the process from the memory. However, if the parent fails to call the wait function for any of its children, the child process remains alive in the system as a dead or zombie process. These zombie processes might accumulate, in large numbers, on your system and affect its performance. In that case, you might have to kill these zombies manually through the ways and commands described in this tutorial.

      • nixCraftHow to convert JSON to CSV using Linux / Unix shell

        Today I will talk about a common problem faced by many Linux or Unix sysadmins and developers. Typically modern apps and security devices heavily depend upon APIs and lists that feed data in JSON format. For example, a list of spamming or VPN CIDRs or a good list of verified bots’ IP CIDRs is in JSON format. If they accept JSON format, you can take this list and upload it to your router or WAF. Unfortunately, not all devices accept JSON format. Hence, we can take JSON format and convert it to CSV format per our needs.

          In addition to other Bay Area musicians like spoken word artist Watsky and Daveed Diggs of “Hamilton” fame, Liu is inspired by the South Korean singer Psy.

        Apache OpenOffice, a leading Open Source office document productivity suite, announced today Apache OpenOffice 4.1.13, as usual available in 41 languages for Windows, macOS and Linux.

        Apache OpenOffice 4.1.13 is a Security release incorporating bug fixes and other enhancements. All users of Apache OpenOffice 4.1.12 or earlier are advised to upgrade. You can download Apache OpenOffice 4.1.13 here. Windows 10 and 11 users can now also get Apache OpenOffice for selected languages in the "Microsoft Store" App.

        It is recommended to make a backup of the Apache OpenOffice users profile before installing AOO 4.1.13. It is especially important for users who use the Master Password functionality and may decide to use an older version later. There is a change in the encoding of stored passwords in this 4.1.13 release that may make your user profile unusable for previous versions.

        In general, it is always a good idea to do a backup of important and personal data, so we recommend to always backup your OpenOffice user profile before doing an upgrade to a newer release.

        I received a text saying I needed a health check. It said I needed to go to the doctors to get a form to phone a number to get a test and then phone another number to get another appointment So I went to the doctors and went to reception and asked for the form to get the test but there wasn't a form. Cos they heard my name wrong. So they got my date of birth and found my name but couldn't find the form because the text message was inaccurate. To get the form I need to book an appointment with a doctor. But I couldn't book an appointment while I was at the doctors. To book an appointment I had to go online. Do I need to register to book online to get an appointment?

      • Copying Pass Git Repo to PinePhone

        I use pass (Linux Password Manager) with a git repository encrypted by gpg. I like the simplicity and feel confident in the security of gpg. I also have my own remote git repo on a raspberry pi so I don't have to worry about using a questionable 3rd party host.


        I don't add my password repo to new systems frequently so when I wanted to add it to my phone, I realized after several failures that I needed to make notes on the simple steps so I don't forget the next time.

        Most of the instructions and tutorials on the web for setting up pass as a password manager are for setting it up on a single computer, not adding an existing repository to a new system.

      • Indexed Colour Workflow

        I've started to chase down a workflow for asset creation [for the EH500] and it's turned out to be more of a faff than I expected. Probably because I've been messing about with the Amiga lately and, er, completely forgot how the future works.

        My ideal would be to use Aseprite to create the individual sprites/tiles and animations. Then use Texture Packer to generate the packed texture pages; one for each tilemap buffer, and one for the sprites.

        It should, in theory, also be possible to script this, so I could run a shell-script to build a "Cartridge" – a zip file, containing all the files the game needs, in a specific layout – that I can distribute separately from the EH500. (Separate distribution's not a requirement, but it'd be nice to have. The Pico8 carts are great.)

      • Search Engine Dilemma Bias VS Accuracy

        One problem with the 3 current major Gemini search engines (GUS, Kennedy and TLGS) is the accuracy of their results. Searching anything too specific and they fail. I saw a lot of people writing about this frustration. "Fine, I'll bring bigger guns out" I thought. After days of reading on arXiv and other sources. I wasn't sure how to improve accuracy without some sort of compromise. Gemini itself also has other issues, you might want to read my other gemlog about this.


        I assume most users of Gemini are FOSS enthusiastics and freedom lovers. Just like the case of RMS, this doesn't put us anywhere on the political spectrum. It simply means most of us are very familiar with computers and want absolute control over programs we run - there's shall be no human component in our code - that effects which algorithms is used for searching. Currently TLGS runs on PostgreSQL's full text search ranking and an old link analysis algorithm called SALSA.

        One (relative) easy way to improve search accuracy being, instead of just relying on a full text search to bring up pages. We can introduce the BERT model to extract context representation vectors of articles and match that with the query vector. However I'm hesitant to do this.

        • MoonGem 2.2 - Script Mode

          I added this feature in order to simplify testing. Previously if I wanted to test a dynamic page, I'd have to generate a cert, start MoonGem on a background process, call a command-line client like gmni, look at the results, and kill the server. Now I can test scripts with a single command, no other steps required.

          In addition to facilitating testing, being able to generate a dynamic gemtext doc from the command-line could be used for certain server-side use cases.

        • My incomplete bilingual Capsule

          Technically it is quite easy to make a biligual site. Well, there is one obstacle: Unlike HTML, where metadata like language, encoding and even redirects can be added into the header section of every html-file, the .gmi files by design contain only content. Nevertheless, metadata is handled in the Gemini protocol, so the server have to implement something to deal with it. The Gemini server I use, agate, brings a very basic but easy to implement functionality: You can add a file called ".meta" in every directory, in which you define metadata for all the files in this directory (and also for subdirectories). I use these files very extensively.

        • I love email

          When I was younger I always found it funny how my dad would send me an email instead of just texting me. Being a silly, tech-savvy teenager, I found his use of such an antiquated and unintuitive method of communication as a sign of his use of technology primarily being in the professional world. I agreed with my teenage assessment until probably about 6 months ago.

          I was needing someone to send me a picture but they had an iPhone and were used to being able to send uncompressed images to people over text. On their end the image appears uncompressed, but when I receive it, due to the limitations of SMS, almost any detail is lost to compression. I then needed to explain to them that it compresses images and that it would be better just to email me with the images as an attachment. I just gave them my email address and within seconds I got what I needed instead of needing to figure out if they had a telegram or other messaging service that allows the sending of images.


          Email is private. Email is not defacto controlled by any one company. Email is time tested. Email is powerful. I love email!
