Budgie Jumping | LUP 120

Budgie Jumping | LUP 120

A member of the Vivaldi browser project joins to discuss their new release. The man behind Solus comes on to follow up on our review, discuss the big plans for the future, creating a custom distribution & the problem with derivatives.

GIMP turns 20 this week and we ask if it’s just time to accept that some OSS projects will never topple their commercial competitor & why that’s just fine by us. We’re still thankful for the GIMP.

Thanks to:

Help Fedora test Wayland!

Before GNOME on Wayland becomes default in Fedora, we need to ensure the transition is smooth and the user won’t recognize a difference. So we need reports on deficiencies that occur on Wayland but not X11. Kamil Páral of the Fedora QA team has written a comprehensive guide how to debug Wayland-related problems.

Fluency on the command line is a skill often neglected or considered arcane, but it improves your flexibility and productivity as an engineer in both obvious and subtle ways. This is a selection of notes and tips on using the command-line that we’ve found useful when working on Linux. Some tips are elementary, and some are fairly specific, sophisticated, or obscure. This page is not long, but if you can use and recall all the items here, you know a lot.

This Week in Solus #11 | Solus Project

We are also planning on rolling out Budgie Next this week.

Christmas

Many of you have been curious when Solus 1.0 will be out. It was announced by Ikey that, assuming Murphy doesn’t interfere again, we will have Solus 1.0 out before Christmas!

VeltOS

VeltOS is sporting the beautiful and easy-to-use Budgie Desktop, themed with Numix. Budgie is built to stay out of the way of you and your programs, allowing you to focus on the task at hand.

VeltOS does not come with bloatware—only what you need. If there is anything we forgot, chances are one of the thousands of applications available for Arch Linux will suit your needs.

LibreOffice getting ready for the next 1,000 hackers

View post on imgur.com

The extraordinary growth of LibreOffice developer’s community, with a monthly average of over 16 new hackers contributing to the code since September 2010, is the result of a global mentoring effort by some of the project founders. After five years and 1,000 new developers, though, the complexity has changed, and the project needs to invest on mentoring a new generation of coders.

Tired of the 1990s look of LibreOffice? Here’s how you can contribute.
