Show Notes:


Thankfully, all of that has become unnecessary and using Netflix natively on Linux is now really easy and basically all you need to do is use Google Chrome.

The problem? Ubuntu no longer includes HAL by default nor in the Ubuntu Archive. Sites that use Flash DRM don’t work on Ubuntu out of the box.

Subject: If you pass by Colorado

For the road show I heard that you might pass by in Colorado. In case that is so, would be great if you like to come by for a beer at a microbrew.

Then the second thing, I was this week at a students meeting of linux users at the University, and it was great to see so many young people interested in linux.

They even helped installing Mint on whoever liked to try linux. Some of them where even running Arch! There were around 10-15 people, perhaps you like to meet them, they are the new generation of linux users.

Munich now a major contributor to open source

The city of Munich is a major contributor to free and open source projects, sending bugfixes to upstream developers, making available software solutions and sharing best practices and technical information. In August, Munich IT staff members shared the city’s accomplishments with the community of Debian developers, one of the main free software distributions.

what is wallabag? – wallabag

wallabag is a self hostable application for saving web pages. Unlike other services, wallabag is free (as in freedom) and open source.

With this application you will not miss content anymore. Click, save, read it when you want. It saves the content you select so that you can read it when you have time.


KeePassX saves many different information e.g. user names, passwords, urls, attachments and comments in one single database. For a better management user-defined titles and icons can be specified for each single entry. Furthermore the entries are sorted in groups, which are customizable as well. The integrated search function allows to search in a single group or the complete database.
KeePassX offers a little utility for secure password generation. The password generator is very customizable, fast and easy to use. Especially someone who generates passwords frequently will appreciate this feature.


Syncthing replaces proprietary sync and cloud services with something open, trustworthy and decentralized. Your data is your data alone and
you deserve to choose where it is stored, if it is shared with some third party and how it’s transmitted over the Internet.

The Datto Block Driver (Dattobd) solves the above problems. Dattobd is an open source Linux kernel module for point-in-time live snapshotting. Dattobd can be loaded onto a running Linux machine (without a reboot) and used to create an image file representing any block device at the instant the snapshot is taken. After the first snapshot, Dattobd tracks incremental changes to the block device and can therefore efficiently update existing backups by copying only the blocks that have changed.
