Lubuntu 18.10 is out.

This is the first new release using the Qt based LXQt desktop in place of the LXDE desktop used in the past.

In reviewing the beta version of 18.10 in May 2018, Marius Nestor of Softpedia wrote: "We took the first Lubuntu 18.10 daily build with LXQt for a test drive, and we have to say that we're impressed ... The layout is very simple, yet stylish with a sleek dark theme by default and a single panel at the bottom of the screen from where you can access everything you need ... we give it a five-star rating."

#Linux #Lubuntu

Yesterday my first #opensuse #tumbleweed installation failed catastrophically... To recap some weeks ago I decided to install on a old laptop Tumbleweed, it was also an occasion to gift the first computer on my older son, he need it to make some math homework.

For this special event I elected Tumbleweed instead of Debian, also to try something different, I thought that OpenSuse could be a right choice but the unexpected was waiting for me behind some bits. We have been using this laptop one a week to do just math on specific web page, everything goes almost fine, the installation still needed tuning to be perfect, until yesterday when the system goes stuck because two processes "btrfs balancing..." and "snapperd" something engulfed the CPU at 100% and made the laptop unresponsive as well as unusable. Reading on internet I learned that OpenSuse was trying to create a new snaps... show more

Repost for mastadon/twitter with < 500 chars 😀

Got a firmware update notice for my Lenovo T460p via gnome-software on my FedoraBook. Tried it, and it worked, although I am in secure boot mode with my own keys.
Because I signed shimx64.efi it could execute fwupx64.efi. Seems like I can just modify /etc/fwupd/uefi.conf to not require the shim. Then I'll just sign fwupx64.efi.
Sidenote: the FW update removed all my UEFI boot entries!

Jeder sollte ein aktuelles Backup haben und für den Fall, dass Zuhause die etwas passiert (Feuer / Wasser) sollte das Backup auch noch extern aufbewahrt werden.

Ich habe das Glück bei Hubic noch einen Account zu haben. Für 50€ im Jahr habe ich dort 11TB Speicherplatz.
Dort ist der Down-/Upload zwar auf 10Mbits/s begrenzt aber so etwas stört eigentlich nur beim initialen Backup.

Das Problem bei Cloud-Backup ist, dass die günstigen Anbieter in den USA sitzen und dann muss man zumeist auch noch deren Backup Software nutzen. Ob die privaten Daten dort wirklich verschlüsselt sind ist fraglich. Linux wird auch nicht immer unterstützt...

wie kommt man nun an ein sicheres und günstiges Cloud-Backup?

Rant: Why does dd not take the blocksize of the devices in account?

dd always defaults to bs=512 which is horribly slow nowadays with SSDs and USB sticks. The default should be 4096.. Any arguments against that?

Got a firmware update notice for my Lenovo T460p via gnome-software on my FedoraBook. Tried it, and it worked, although I am completely in secure boot mode with my own keys. Because I signed /efi/EFI/fedora/shimx64.efi it could execute fwupx64.efi.
Of course, this opens up a security hole, because an attacker could then execute any fedora signed efi (grub, kernel, etc.). Note to myself: replace shimx64.efi with a dummy efi executor.
Back to the firmware update: As I said, it worked fine... but: *IT REMOVED ALL EFI BOOT ENTRIES!* So, I have to find the culprit, either the fwupx64.efi or the firmware update itself. Any maybe I should install in the single OS also the fallback /efi/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi by default.

How to change the display manager on Linux

With Linux you can switch between login screens quite easily and you are not just stuck with the default one for your distro. But also note that some login screens prefer a specific display manager to work optimally with its themes. This article explains a bit more on how to do it.

Destination Linux EP92 – Elementary My Dear Distro

I've been using #NoVNC to access a headless #Linux desktop via the web when working at some of my more paranoid clients (who don't want me to access the open web, for instance). It's dead simple to set up and maintain, and it gives me access to an always-on desktop. You can run the whole thing in a #Docker container, so it couldn't be much simpler. Put https termination in front of it, mount a /home volume and you're good to go!

Heb12 v0.3.0 Beta 2 Released

This is a pre-release version of #Heb12 #Bible for desktop version 0.3.0. There are a few changes from beta 1. Most notably the bookmarking feature, and the ameythist theme.

Version v0.3.0 stable is coming out by the end of October!

Note: we currently only have packages for #Linux ready, but check out our wiki on GitHub for information about making your own packages for #Windows or #MacOS.

I have been busy, so in the two months from beta 1 not too much has changed.
