DistroWatch.com: Bodhi Linux

Bodhi Linux is an Ubuntu-based distribution for the desktop featuring the elegant and lightweight Enlightenment window manager. The project, which integrates and pre-configures the very latest builds of Enlightenment directly from the project’s development repository, offers modularity, high level of customisation, and choice of themes. The default Bodhi system is light — the only pre-installed applications are Midori, Terminology, EFM (Enlightenment File Manager), ePhoto and ePad — but more software is available via AppCenter, a web-based software installation tool.

In this video i am going to show the installation process of Bodhi Linux 3.0.0 after that i am going to do a overview of the operating system and show some of the applications pre-installed.

Runs Linux

There is an article on Guardian explaining what is the experiment about http://www.theguardian.com/science/across-the-universe/2015/feb/12/the-hunt-for-gravitational-waves-could-be-nearing-success[1] .

On the video LIGO Generations we see the lab where they analyze results and we see all the lab run Ubuntu.

Here’s a date for your diary: 1 January 2017. It’s the day that physicists are predicting for a great scientific breakthrough: the first direct detection of gravitational waves.

It will be the equivalent of astronomers discovering a new sense. With telescopes, they can already see the universe. By detecting gravitational waves, they will be able to ‘listen’ to it as well. We would be able to ‘hear’ stars colliding with one another, the destruction of matter falling into black holes and the catastrophic detonation of distant massive stars.

Desktop App Pick

LanguageTool is an Open Source proof­reading program for English, French, German, Polish, and more than 20 other languages. It finds many errors that a simple spell checker cannot detect and several grammar problems.

Weekly Spotlight

Run it on a server connected to some speakers in your home or office. Guests can control the music player by connecting with a laptop, tablet, or smart phone. Further, you can stream your music library remotely. Groove Basin works with your personal music library; not an external music service. Groove Basin will never support DRM content.

Features
  • Fast, responsive UI. It feels like a desktop app, not a web app.

  • Dynamic playlist mode which automatically queues random songs, favoring songs that have not been queued recently.

  • Drag and drop upload. Drag and drop playlist editing. Rich keyboard shortcuts.

​Mark Shuttleworth considering Canonical IPO

The decision won’t be entirely his. “I need to talk it over with my Canonical team.” He also said that the idea has been being seriously kicked around internally for the last several months.

Chromium Finally Gets HiDPI Support for Linux After Being Ignored for Three Years – Softpedia

“I’m happy to notice that High DPI is now fully supported in Chromium for Linux starting in Dev Channel. If you don’t have a HighDPI screen, you can still run chromium with the –force-device-scale-factor=2 switch to see how scaling works there,” wrote François Beaufort.

  • Full HiDPI support in Chrome is now available in the main branch google-chrome as of version 43.0.2357.2-1 and works out of the box as tested with Gnome and Cinnamon.

Ads Based On Browsing History Are Coming To All Firefox Users

Mozilla has announced plans to launch a feature called “Suggested Tiles,” which will provide sponsored recommendations to visit certain websites when other websites show up in the user’s new tab page. The tiles will begin to show up for beta channel users next week, and the company is asking for feedback. For testing purposes, users will only see Suggested Tiles “promoting Firefox for Android, Firefox Marketplace, and other Mozilla causes.” It’s not yet known what websites will show up on the tiles when the feature launches later this summer. The company says, “With Suggested Tiles, we want to show the world that it is possible to do relevant advertising and content recommendations while still respecting users’ privacy and giving them control over their data.”

Mozilla gives up on its dream of a $25 Firefox smartphone | The Verge

CNET reports that in an email to employees sent out on Thursday, CEO Chris Beard made it clear that the company will soon be changing its mobile strategy. “We have not seen sufficient traction for a $25 phone,” Beard wrote. He went on to say, “We will focus on efforts that provide a better user experience, rather than focusing on cost alone.”

Intel takes on CoreOS with its own container-based Linux

In a detailed article at LWN.net, Intel engineer Arjan van de Ven described Intel’s aim to build a container system “where one can use the isolation of virtual-machine technology along with the deployment benefits of containers.”

The resulting system, Clear Containers, uses Linux’s kernel-native KVM hypervisor, but runs it in such a way that it avoids most of the startup time overhead typically associated with spinning up a KVM instance. Intel also claims it can leverage systemd and a few kernel-level memory-organization tricks to slim down and speed up the process even further.

Second stretchgoal reached and new builds!

We’ve got our second stretchgoal through both Kickstarter and the Paypal donations! We hope we can get many more so that you, our users, get to choose more ways for us to improve Krita. And we have got half a third stretch goal actually implemented: modifier keys for selections!
