Manjaro Linux 16.10 Fringilla Has Released


Philip Müller has announced the release of a new snapshot of the Manjaro Linux distribution. Manjaro is a rolling release distribution which strives to be user friendly and provides a wide range of desktop spins. The new release, Manjaro Linux 16.10, offers mostly package upgrades, including systemd 231 and the Plasma 5.8 desktop environment. 

Manjaro Linux is a fast, user-friendly, desktop-oriented operating system based on Arch Linux. Key features include intuitive installation process, automatic hardware detection, stable rolling-release model, ability to install multiple kernels, special Bash scripts for managing graphics drivers and extensive desktop configurability. Manjaro Linux offers Xfce as the core desktop options, as well as a minimalist Net edition for more advanced users. Community-supported GNOME 3/Cinnamon and KDE flavours are available. Users also benefit from the supportive and vibrant Manjaro community forum.

Manjaro Linux 16.10 bring Plasma 5.8.2, Firefox 49.0, Nvidia 370.28, LibreOffice 5.1.6, Systemd 231, Octopi 0.8.5 and Pamac 4.1.5 added to these install medias. Calamares 2.4.3 has following highlights:


  • fixed user creation so it obeys the list of default groups for new users
  • added Deepin support to the displaymanager module
  • fixed an issue which could cause a failed install with LUKS if other LUKS partitions are already present
  • improved system requirements configuration checking
  • fixed case-insensitive path handling when installing GRUB on VFAT filesystems
  • fixed an issue which could cause a failed install when resolv.conf is a broken symlink in the target rootfs
  • added support for disabling LUKS-related UI elements
  • fixed an issue in the summary page, which caused the target root partition to be mislabeled in the UI
  • fixed how the timezone setting is applied, so certain environments like KDE Plasma always obey the setting on first boot
  • fixed timezone selector behavior, so that a timezone changes affect the live system immediately
  • improved partition scanner code so it always excludes ISO9660 volumes (to avoid showing the live USB stick or optical disk in the devices list)

Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 is Released, Enlightenment-based Moksha 0.2.1 desktop


Built on top of the recently released, Enlightenment-based Moksha 0.2.1 desktop environment, and based on the Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system, Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 arrives in its final, production-ready state powered by the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel fully patched against the “Dirty COW” vulnerability.

Bodhi is an open source Linux distribution built around the Enlightenment desktop environment and based on the world’s most popular free operating system, Ubuntu Linux. It is a customizable and minimalistic distribution that combines the beauty of the Enlightenment desktop with a great collection of applications and package management utilities.

The highlights of this release coming from our previous stable release, Bodhi Linux 3.2.1, are:

  • Ubuntu 16.04.1 Core
  • Moksha 0.2.1 Desktop
  • Linux 4.4 Kernel
  • EFL 1.18.1
  • New / Updated Moksha Modules

Ultimately our end users should be pleased to see the same stable operating system they have grown accustomed to in the past years, with newer application versions the updated Ubuntu LTS brings with it. I would like to take this time to remind users that we do not support a direct upgrade path from 3.2.1 to 4.0.0. You will need to reinstall your operating system to have Bodhi Linux 4.0.0. I would also like to mention that there is no rush for users to upgrade their working 3.2.1 systems. Bodhi 3 will be supported until April 2019. Existing 4.0.0 pre-release users can upgrade to this stable release by simply running the updates via their package manager.



EFL 1.18.1 is pre-installed, along with new and updated Moksha modules

Among other cool new things implemented in the Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 release, we can mention the addition of the latest Enlightenment Foundation Libraries (EFL) 1.18.1, along with a bunch of new and updated Moksha modules, as well as all the latest GNU/Linux technologies to provide users with yet another rock-solid release, so remember to donate if you like it.

Bodhi Linux 4.0.0 is available for download right now via our website, for 64-bit, 32-bit and Legacy systems. If you’re running a Bodhi release from the 3.2 series please note that you’ll have to reinstall because an upgrade path is not available at the moment. However, you should also keep in mind the the Bodhi 3.x series is supported until April 2019.

Upgrade to Linux Kernel 4.8.5 on Ubuntu 16.10, ubuntu 16.04, ubuntu 15.10 and Linux Mint 18



Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.
Includes powerful features

Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Initially designed only for 386/486-based computers, now Linux supports a wide range of architectures, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), ARM, ARM64, DEC Alpha, MIPS, SUN Sparc, PowerPC, as well as Amiga and Atari machines.

Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus) Daily Build is Available For Download



What is Zesty Zapus ?

Zesty is an adjective meaning ‘great enthusiasm and energy’. It can also mean that something tastes rather citrusy (as citrus fruit peel is called ‘zest’).

Zapus is the genus name of a North-American meadow jumping mouse. The cute little rodent is said to be the only mammal on Earth that has a total of…18 teeth. Everyone needs a claim to fame, right?

Expect to see Google adjust to the new name over the coming weeks. Right now, a Google for the “Zesty Zapus” throws up some canny autocorrect suggestions:

And now, we’d like to inform our Ubuntu Linux users about the fact that the Ubuntu Kernel Team is currently tracking early Release Candidate versions of the upcoming Linux 4.9 kernel for Ubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus), but, for now, they are waiting for more mature RC builds to land before pushing the new kernel to the repositories.

“We are still tracking early v4.9-rc’s for Zesty. This work can been found here: https://git.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel/ubuntu/+source/linux/+git/unstable,” writes Joseph Salisbury on behalf of the Ubuntu Kernel Team. “We will wait for a few more -rc releases before preparing an upload for Zesty.”


Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty Zapus

Mark writes of the codename: “right now, Ubuntu is moving even faster to the centre of the cloud and edge operations. From AWS to the zaniest new devices, Ubuntu helps people get things done faster, cleaner, and more efficiently, thanks to you. We love the pace of change and we change the face of love.”

“We are a tiny band in a market of giants, but our focus on delivering free software freely together with enterprise support, services and solutions appears to be opening doors, and minds, everywhere. So, in honour of the valiantly tiny leaping long-tailed over the obstacles of life, our next release [is called Zesty Zapus].”


Download Ubuntu 17.04 Daily Build

Those of you like to live on the bleeding edge and/or want to get involved in helping to test Ubuntu 17.04 can do so by downloading a daily image for use in a virtual machine or to install on a separate partition/device.

Don’t expect much in the way of major changes this early on. It’ll be a good couple of months before big user-facing changes are made.

Toolchains have been updated though, which is important if you’re a developer, and an influx of updated packages, libraries and toolkits will shortly spill in.

Hit the button below to navigate over to the Ubuntu image server. Here you’ll find daily builds of Ubuntu 17.04 in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.

Quirky Xerus 8.1 Released, Supplying download images for Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 computers


Barry Kauler has announced the release of Quirky 8.1. Quirky is a sister project to Puppy Linux and offers a lightweight, user friendly desktop experience. The latest version, Quirky 8.1, diverges from past Quirky releases by supplying download images for Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 computers and not x86-powered computers.

Quirky, a sister project of Puppy Linux, is a Linux distribution built with a custom tool called Woof. The underlying infrastructure, such as boot-up and shut-down scripts, setup tools, hardware detection, desktop management, user interface, speed and general ease-of-use are common across all distributions built with Woof, but a specific build will have a different package selection and further customisation (even totally different binary packages). Quirky is developed by the founder of Puppy Linux and Woof to push the envelope a bit further, to explore some new ideas in the underlying infrastructure — some of which may be radical or odd, hence the name Quirky.

Quirky Xerus 8.1

All Quirkies prior to 8.1 have been built for x86 and x86_64 PCs. Version 8.1 is the first to be built for the ARM platform, specifically the Raspberry Pi2 and Pi3. Note that Quirky will not work on a Pi1. It is expected a build for the Odroid XU4 is coming soon.

The functionality is much as you have come to expect with a Puppy-derivative — you get “the kitchen sink” in a very small package. That is, an application for just about everything and utilities to setup and configure just about anything.

A difference though, with the Raspberry Pi build, is that it includes LibreOffice and Inkscape, whereas Puppy-derivatives usually have light-weight choices, such as Gnumeric, Abiword and InkscapeLite. This decision was made so as to provide the same functionality out-of-the-box as Raspbian, and in fact a whole lot more.
This has resulted in a somewhat larger build than usual, a download file of 360MB. However, compare that with Raspbian at 1.3GB, and Quirky is still relatively small.

As this is the very first release of Quirky for the Pi, it may have some issues, though we have been testing at the Puppy Forum and have fixed, hopefully, most of them. Some outstanding issues are:

What’s new in Quirky Linux 8.1


  • The old “April” series of Quirky is compiled totally from source packages, using T2. Quirky “Xerus” differs in that it is built with Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus binary DEBs.
  • It must be emphasised that the mere fact of using Ubuntu DEBs does not make Quirky a clone of Ubuntu. Nothing could be further from the truth.
  • Quirky Xerus behaves just like the April series, with the one difference that packages can be installed from the Ubuntu DEB repositories. The binary compatibility with Ubuntu offers a huge collection of packages, which is the main attraction of this series.
  • However, some functionality of Ubuntu is castrated, such as systemd. These differences may mean that some Ubuntu DEBs may not work properly (but the vast majority should be fine).
  • if anyone ever asks you “what type of desktop does Quirky run?”, tell them “JWM and ROX-Filer”. This has been the standard for Puppy and derivatives for the last ten years. JWM is a window manager that also runs the tray, ROX-Filer is a file manager on steroids, that also manages the desktop icons and background.
  • Oh, and that systemd thing. No Puppy or derivative uses systemd. The standard for Puppy has always been the init mechanism provided by Busybox. You can find the guts of the bootup and shutdown scripts in /etc/rc.d. This works well, and is very fast — the Pi3 boots to a fully-loaded desktop in about 9 seconds.

How to Install Lumina Desktop 1.1 on Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus via PPA


The Lumina® Desktop Environment is a lightweight system interface designed for use on any Unix-like operating system. Lumina® is based on using plugins, which allows the entire interface to be arranged by each individual user as desired. A system wide default layout is also included, and is configurable by the system administrator. This allows every system (or user session) to be designed to maximize the individual user’s productivity. (View some examples)

The Lumina® desktop developers understand that the point of a computer system is to run applications, so Lumina® was designed to require as few system dependencies/requirements as possible. This allows it to be used to revitalize older systems or to allow the user to run applications that may need a higher percentage of the system resources than were previously available with other desktop environments.

Features
For Users

  • Completely customizable interface! Rather than having to learn how to use a new layout, change the desktop to suit you instead!
  • Simple shortcuts for any application! The “favorites” system makes it easy to find and launch applications at any time.
  • Extremely lightweight! Allows applications to utilize more of your system hardware and revitalizes older systems!
  • Multiple-monitor support! Each monitor is treated as an independent entity – making it great for presentation systems which use a temporary monitor or for workstations which utilize an array of monitors for various tasks.

For System Administrators

  • Personalize the initial settings for users with a single configuration file!
  • Default applications
  • Appearance settings (Theme, Colors, Wallpaper(s), Icons, Fonts, etc)
  • Interface layout (desktop icons/plugins, panels, etc)
  • Favorite apps/files
  • and more!
  • Provides a stable and consistent experience across updates. Cut down on your support time for end-user systems!

For System Builders

  • Easily ported to various operating systems (OS), with various optional features setup within a single source file for each OS. Already ported to:
  • BSD OS’s: TrueOS, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, DragonflyBSD, NetBSD
  • Linux OS’s: Debian, Gentoo, kFreeBSD, generic “Linux”
  • Easily add customized config files for your OS (wallpaper, interface settings, etc).
  • Minimal dependencies
  • Qt5.2+, Fluxbox, xscreensaver, XCB libraries, other small OS utilities as needed.

FFmpeg 3.1.5 Release, Install on Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 15.10 and Linux Mint 18 sarah


FFmpeg is an open source utility that allows Linux, Windows and Mac OS X users to playback, convert, record and stream video and audio files. It is used in almost all Linux distributions. It is a command-line software that can encode, decode, demux, mux, transcode, stream, play and filter almost any media format available. FFmpeg uses libavcodec, the most advanced audio/video codec library for Linux and UNIX-like systems.

Features at a glance
The software is comprised of a multimedia streaming server for live broadcasts, a simple media player based on the powerful SDL library, a simple multimedia stream analyzer, a library that contains functions for simplifying programming, and another library that includes muxers and demuxers for multimedia container formats. Additionally, it comes with support for input and output devices, media filters, a library for performing highly optimized image scaling and color space/pixel format conversion operations, and a library for performing highly optimized audio rematrixing, resampling and sample format conversions.

Approximately every 3 months the FFmpeg project makes a new major release. Between major releases point releases will appear that add important bug fixes but no new features. Note that these releases are intended for distributors and system integrators. Users that wish to compile from source themselves are strongly encouraged to consider using the development branch (see above), this is the only version on which FFmpeg developers actively work. The release branches only cherry pick selected changes from the development branch, which therefore receives much more and much faster bug fixes such as additional features and security patches.

How to : Install Latest Firefox 50.0 Beta 9 on Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 15.10


The Mozilla Firefox project is a redesign of Mozilla’s browser component, written using the XUL user interface language and designed to be cross-platform, supporting Linux, Android, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. It is a fast, small and very easy-to-use web browser/navigator/explorer that offers many advantages over other similar products, such as the ability to block pop-up windows and the feature-rich tabbed browsing experience.

Features at a glance
The application offers a well designed graphical user interface that integrates search (powered by Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.), and industry leading accessibility with Find As You Type – find links and page text by simply typing. As mentioned before, the Firefox browser features comprehensive pop-up controls, which will keep unwanted advertising off your desktop. A tab browsing mode will let you open several pages in a single window, allowing you to load links in the background without leaving the page you’re on.


Easier Browsing

Mozilla put of a lot of resources into creating a simple but effective UI aimed at making browsing quicker and easier. They created the tab structure that has been adopted by most other browsers. In recent years Mozilla has also focused on maximizing browsing area by simplifying toolbar controls to just a Firefox button (which contains settings and options) and back/forward buttons. The URL box features direct Google searching as well as an auto predict/history feature called Awesome Bar. On the right side of the URL box there are bookmarking, history and refresh buttons. To the right of the URL box is a search box which allows you to customize your search engine options. Outside of that a view button controls what you see below the URL. Next to that you have the download history and home buttons.

Speed

Mozilla Firefox boasts impressive page load speeds thanks to the excellent JagerMonkey JavaScript engine. Start up speed and graphics rendering are also among the quickest in the market. Firefox manages complex video and web content using layer-based Direct2D and Driect3D graphics systems. Crash protection ensures only the plugin causing the issue stops working, not the rest of the content being browsed. Reloading the page restarts any affected plugins. The tab system and Awesome Bar have been streamlined to launch/get results very quickly too.

Security

Firefox was the first browser to introduce a private browsing feature which allows you to use the internet more anonymously and securely. History, searches, passwords, downloads, cookies and cached content are all removed on shutdown. Minimizing the chances of another user stealing your identity or finding confidential information. Content security, anti-phishing technology and antivirus/antimalware integration ensures your browsing experience is as safe as possible.

Personalisation & Development

One of the best features of the Firefox UI is customization. Simply right click on the navigation toolbar to customize individual components or just drag and drop items you want to move around. The inbuilt Firefox Add-ons Manager allows you to discover and install add-ons within the browser as well as view ratings, recommendations and descriptions. Read about the top recommended add-ons for Mozilla Firefox on TechBeat. Thousands of customizable themes allow you to customize the look and feel of your browser. Site authors and developers can create advanced content and applications using Mozilla’s open source platform and enhanced API.

Solus 1.2.1 Shannon Has Been Released and Available For Download


The latest release, Solus 1.2.1, offers users the most up to date version of the Budgie desktop environment and introduces a new MATE edition of the Solus distribution. Solus 1.2.1 also features IBUS support to enable multi-lingual input, introduces a Places applet for quick file system navigation and polishes the audio and brightness controls. 

Solus is a Linux distribution built from scratch. It uses a forked version of the PiSi package manager, maintained as “eopkg” within Solus, and a custom desktop environment called “Budgie”, developed in-house. The Budgie desktop, which can be set to emulate the look and feel of the GNOME 2 desktop, is tightly integrated with the GNOME stack. The distribution is available for 64-bit computers only.

It’s distributed as a 64-bit Live CD
Currently, the Solus is still in heavy development, but you can download it via Softpedia or directly from its official website as a Live CD ISO image suitable for computers supporting only 64-bit instruction set architectures.

BUG FIXES / OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

  • Alongside all the goodies above, a plethora of bug fixes and other improvements have been made, such as:
  • Applets
  • Icon Tasklist icons are now longer squishing on login.
  • Icon Tasklist now implements Exec-based mapping as the final fallback. This specifically fixes an instance where GIMP wasn’t pinnable as the window class is “gimp-2.8”.
  • Keyboard Layout applet no longer steals input button focus.
  • Status applet has been ported to upower 0.99 API. Prior to this fix, the remove signal would always result in a segfault, as we were trying to treat a string as a gobject.
  • User Indicator now has a Hibernate option.
  • We now ensure our appsystem is reloaded to immediately make available the pinning of a newly installed application.
  • Daemon
  • Addressed shadow on EndSessionDialog in composite race-condition.
  • Ensure we always hide the User Indicator window and focus on the daemon window.
  • Fix issues with OSD placement. Basically, the window allocation inexplicablly changes between shows of the window, resulting in a larger offset the second time around, moving the whole OSD one full unit east.
  • Data
  • We now provide fallback icons for pane-{hide,show}-symbolic icons created by horst3180, which are used in the Raven Sidebar Control. These are used in absence of the named icons within the theme itself, such as when using Adwaita.
  • Iconography
  • We now import and utilize iconography contributed by Sam Hewitt, such as: Clock Applet, Icon Tasklist Applet, Lock Keys applet, Notifications Applet, and more.
  • Panel
  • Always restore focus to windows after closing popovers. We now store / restore the focused window in the window manager around expansion changes in the panel.
  • We now chain methods to fix GtkBox allocation spamming journald every half second (ticked by clock update and other applets requiring a refresh). This affects GTK 3.20 onwards.
  • You can now re-order pinned apps by dragging them around! Woohoo!
  • Plugin
  • All applets now extend GtkEventBox and not GtkBin.
  • As seen in issue #574, we have various problems with certain applet types due to extending from the primitive GtkBin. In this particular instance we have no child GdkWindow, which is why the drawing system becomes bizarely bugged and results in rendering in random locations.All applets should have at least one top level GdkWindow that is not part of the GtkWindow’s GdkWindow, to ensure separate context. As a part of this change, all third-party applets should be rebuilt against the new Budgie due to the ABI break introduced here.
  • Raven
  • Ensure all cursor themes are loaded. Previously, we made an assumption that icons and cursors were somehow mutually exclusive. The idea of the index.theme parsing was simply to test that it was a valid icon theme. However, we then only tested for the cursors directory if it definitely wasn’t an icon theme. That meant that themes shipping both cursors and icons in one directory would never show the cursor themes.
  • Added support for legacy theme directories, such as ~/.icons, ~/.themes, and ~/.fonts
  • Fixed broken markup parsing by importing our mate parser.
  • Fixed HeaderWidget & HeaderExpander expanded property mismatch.
  • Run Dialog
  • Respect OnlyShowIn and other control factors.
  • We now use the same search algorithm as Budgie Menu
  • Theme
  • Background-image is now set to none for the built-in theme in order to override any themes that may use a background image for the panel styling.
  • Our theme has received fixes for GTK 3.22.
  • Window Manager
  • Fix negated logic in screen unredirect.


Further details and screen shots highlighting the new features can be found in the project’s release announcement.

Upgrade To Kernel 4.8.3 Stable on Ubuntu 16.10, Ubuntu 16.04 and Linux Mint 18 Sarah


Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.

Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman announced three new maintenance updates for the Linux 4.8, 4.7, and 4.4 LTS kernel series, patching a major security vulnerability.

Known as “Dirty COW,” the Linux kernel vulnerability documented at CVE-2016-5195 is, in fact, a nasty bug that could have allowed local users to write to any file they can read. The worst part is that the security flaw was present in various Linux kernel builds since at least the Linux 2.6.x series, which reached end of life in February this year.

For those that are interested in more technical details, the “mm: remove gup_flags FOLL_WRITE games from __get_user_pages()” vulnerability was patched by Linus Torvalds himself, and it’s a race condition discovered in Linux kernel’s memory manager when handling copy-on-write breakage of private read-only memory mappings, which could have allowed a local attacker to gain administrative privileges (root access) to the affected system.

“This is an ancient bug that was actually attempted to be fixed once (badly) by me eleven years ago” reveals Linus Torvalds in an email announcement. “To fix it, we introduce a new internal FOLL_COW flag to mark the “yes, we already did a COW” rather than play racy games with FOLL_WRITE that is very fundamental, and then use the pte dirty flag to validate that the FOLL_COW flag is still valid.”

Linux users need to update their systems as soon as possible
Therefore, today’s Linux kernel 4.8.3, Linux kernel 4.7.9, and Linux kernel 4.4.26 LTS point releases are here to patch the “Dirty COW” security vulnerability, and it already landed in the repositories of various GNU/Linux distributions, including Arch Linux (Testing), Solus (Unstable), and all supported Ubuntu OSes. Make sure that you update your OS as soon as possible!

Includes powerful features
Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Initially designed only for 386/486-based computers, now Linux supports a wide range of architectures, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), ARM, ARM64, DEC Alpha, MIPS, SUN Sparc, PowerPC, as well as Amiga and Atari machines.

Upgrade to Linux Kernel 4.8.2 on Ubuntu 16.10, ubuntu 16.04, ubuntu 15.10 and Linux Mint 18


Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.

Includes powerful features
Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Initially designed only for 386/486-based computers, now Linux supports a wide range of architectures, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), ARM, ARM64, DEC Alpha, MIPS, SUN Sparc, PowerPC, as well as Amiga and Atari machines.
