Nitrux 1.3.1 Released: A Beautiful Linux Distro With Portable...

  • Nitrux 1.3.1 Released: A Beautiful Linux Distro With Portable App Format

    Ahead of the current Nitrux 1.3.0, its founder Uri Herrera has released a new point version — Nitrux 1.3.1. The latest v1.3.1 comes with several software updates, bug fixes, performance improvements, and new hardware support.

    Nitrux is one of the unique Linux distributions not only because of its beautiful KDE Plasma desktop but also for using a portable universal application format, AppImage, in addition to a package manager like APT and DPKG. So, let’s see what more Nitrux 1.3.1 offers.

Nitrux 1.3.1 Released with Latest Plasma Desktop

  • Nitrux 1.3.1 Released with Latest Plasma Desktop, Improved Installer, and Faster Installation

    As expected, Nitrux 1.3.1 is an updated media of the distribution that ships with the latest and greatest software. It includes the recently released KDE Plasma 5.19.4 desktop environment, along with the KDE Applications 20.04.03 and KDE Frameworks 5.72.0 open-source software suites.

    If you’re a fan of the KDE Plasma desktop environment, these components mentioned above are the only reason you should download the latest Nitrux release and install it on your personal computer. If you already have Nitrux installed, congratulations, you’re already running the newest KDE technologies.

    Also updated in the Nitrux 1.3.1 is the Linux kernel, which means better support for newer hardware, though I was expecting to see Nitrux already using the Linux 5.7 kernel series by now, but there must be a reason the developers are still sticking with Linux kernel 5.6.

LibreOffice 6.4.5 finally for Slackware 14.2

The Document Foundation recently released version 7.0.0 of their Libre Office suite of applications. The packages for Slackware-current can be found in my repository. But the situation for Slackware 14.2 used to be different – I got stuck after LibreOffice 6.2 because the newer source releases (6.3 and onwards) require versions of system software that our stable Slackware 14.2 platform does not offer. From time to time during the last year, when there was time and the build box was not compiling packages, I messed around with the libreoffice.SlackBuild script in futile attempts to compile recent versions of LibreOffice on Slackware 14.2. I failed all the time. Until last week. After I had uploaded the new KDE Plasma5 packages to ‘ktown‘, I had an epiphany and decided to use a new approach. What I did was: question all the historic stuff in the SlackBuild script that got added whenever I needed to work around compilation failures; and accept that the compilation needs newer versions of software than Slackware 14.2 offers. The first statement meant that I disabled patches and variable declarations that messed with compiler and linker; and for the second statement I stuck to a single guideline: the end product, if I were able to compile a package successfully, has to run out of the box on Slackware 14.2 without the need to update any of the core Slackware packages.

Web Browsers: New Tor RC, Firefox/Mozilla Trouble, and Web Browsers Need to Stop

  • New release candidate: 0.4.4.4-rc

    There's a new alpha release available for download. If you build Tor from source, you can download the source code for 0.4.4.4-rc from the download page. Packages should be available over the coming weeks, with a new alpha Tor Browser release likely in the coming weeks.

    Remember, this is a release candidate, not a a stable release: you should only run this if you'd like to find and report more bugs than usual.

  • Mozilla is dead

    If Mozilla wants to survive, the management will be fired with unearned compensation, the most important departments will be strengthened, products that nobody ordered will be discontinued and the organization will be limited to its core competence. Browser, email, security, adaptability and the fight for a free Internet. And they work with all their might to ensure that the products will become an integral part of everyday life and all operating systems.

    Three months. That’s all the time they have for a clear signal. After that, users have to make a decision. Unfortunately, it will probably only be something with chromium.

    Poor Internet.

  • Web browsers need to stop

    I call for an immediate and indefinite suspension of the addition of new developer-facing APIs to web browsers. Browser vendors need to start thinking about reducing scope and cutting features. WebUSB, WebBluetooth, WebXR, WebDRM WebMPAA WebBootlicking replacing User-Agent with Vendor-Agent cause let’s be honest with ourselves at this point “Encrypted Media Extensions” — this crap all needs to go. At some point you need to stop adding scope and start focusing on performance, efficiency, reliability, and security5 at the scope you already have.
