Games: APICO, Liquidation - Echoes of the Past and Chat Clients

Filed under
Gaming
  • Take care of the bees in the latest demo of the super sweet APICO

    APICO is a game you absolutely have to try if you love casual farming, building and exploration. It's simply wonderful as you run around collecting and breeding bees to build up an apiary. We briefly mentioned APICO back in September, being completely charmed by its wonderful non-violent gameplay that sees you keep an eye on one of nature's most important insects.

  • Check out the brand new trailer for the RTS 'Liquidation - Echoes of the Past'

    Liquidation - Echoes of the Past is an upcoming tactical fantasy/sci-fi singleplayer and multiplayer real-time strategy game with rpg elements. It's looking and sounding impressive with a curious mix of themes from the likes of Starcraft and Dawn of War and it's coming along with Linux support eventually.

    "The game takes place in the dying plane of Veá, which has been repeatedly ravaged and drained of its very life essence over the course of a massive war that has been going on for centuries. Now, with the doomed world drawing its last breath, you arise as a lesser deity tasked with restoring the balance in Veá and ending this war before it’s too late."

  • XMPP Client in Godot – Wolthera.info

    I started on last Thursday, with setting up the TCP connection. I first set up prosody on my computer, with it only accepting traffic from the localhost so I had something to test again. I also installed Gajim and Kaidan so I had an idea of what proper xmpp clients look like (and so I could chat with myself). Unfortunately, because of QML shenigans, Kaidan doesn’t start.

    For the stream itself, I am very indebted to this little project, as it showed me that you can use the process function in Godot to periodically listen to the TCP stream, which was a connection I hadn’t been able to make from the documentation. After I got that done, I still had some trouble getting the server to accept my data… turns out Godot’s convenience functions for strings and others helpfully prefixes it with a few bytes to indicate the size of the sent data. Using put_data(string.to_utf8()) for this solved everything. Now the server was accepting my stream!

    I also came across one annoying limitation in Godot: I can do host resolving, but I cannot seem to do a lookup on DNS SRV, which is used in the XMPP spec to point at the precise IP address and port to use for an XMPP Client. This means that right now the add-account button requires you type in the IP address and port of the server manually, which is really annoying.

  • Cordless Discord Developer BANNED From Discord

    3rd party Discord clients have never been allowed on Discord but most people who use them don't care but due to seem recent bans involving the Cordless developer being banned from discord I don't feel comfortable recommending that people use them anymore.

ExTiX 20.12 KDE Plasma together with Anbox (“Android in a Box” with Google Play Store pre-installed) :: Build 201205

Filed under
GNU
KDE
Linux

I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 20.12 KDE Anbox Live DVD. (The previous KDE/Anbox version was 20.9 from 200825). I have now included Anbox (Android in a Box – Anbox puts the Android operating system into a container, abstracts hardware access and integrates core system services into a GNU/Linux system. Every Android application will be integrated with your operating system like any other native application). So now you can run Android apps in ExTiX. GAPPS (Google Play Services and Google Play Store) are pre-installed in ExTiX 20.12. The second best thing with ExTiX 20.12 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Snapshot (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu/Anbox system. So easy that a ten year child can do it!

ExTiX 20.12 KDE Plasma DVD 64 bit is based on Debian and Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Gnome. After removing Gnome I have installed KDE Frameworks 5.68.0 with KDE 4.19. KDE Frameworks are 60 addon libraries to Qt which provide a wide variety of commonly needed functionality in mature, peer reviewed and well tested libraries with friendly licensing terms.

  • How do I use Nginx Docker? – Linux Hint

    Nginx is a fast, open-source, and more reliable web server that is used for server-side application development. Nginx server application support to run on many different operating systems. Nginx is very useful for development tasks. Therefore, the Docker container provides support for the Nginx server.

    The open-source Docker platform contains a docker engine, a runtime environment that is used to execute, builds, and orchestrates containers. The term we have used in the below article is ‘docker hub’, a hosted service where containerized applications are shared, distributed, and collaborated with the rest of the development community. Dockerized applications are portable to implement on any environment like laptop, VM, cloud, or bare-metal server. The modular components can be reassembled again into the fully-featured applications and consciously do their work in a real-time environment.

    We will elaborate in this article on how you can use Nginx Docker and easily set up on your system.

  • How to suppress all Output from Bash Command? – Linux Hint

    Whenever we run a Bash command on our Linux Mint 20 terminal, the regular practice is to see some output on the terminal. This is the same for the commands as well as for the Bash scripts. Sometimes, we may not wish to see that output. This happens especially when we want to debug a program and are only interested in finding out the errors that are occurring. In this situation, if we will be presented with the whole output, then it will not only be useless for us but will also waste our time looking for the actual issue.

    That is why we prefer suppressing the actual output of the Bash commands or scripts in a way that only their errors (if any) are displayed on the terminal. Otherwise, nothing will be displayed. Therefore, today, we will be talking about the method of suppressing all output from Bash command in Linux Mint 20.

  • How to set up a wireless internet connection in Zorin OS

    Activating a wireless connection in Zorin OS or in Linux in general is pretty easy, but of course you need to successfully set up your wireless adapter first to make that happen, which in Linux can be everything between very easy and sometimes impossible. The modern Linux distributions have out of the box terrific support for most of the available hardware components, like graphics cards, printers and Wi-Fi adapters. And with HWE, or Hardware Enablement, it has become even more convenient catching up with the latest hardware technologies in your Ubuntu based Linux distro of choice, like Zorin OS. But it is always possible that the setup procedure, when installing the distro from scratch, doesn’t come up directly with the correct or most optimized drivers for your devices. In this article as part of my free Zorin OS beginner course I explain how to set up a wireless internet connection in Zorin OS if you already have a working wireless adapter, how to install wireless drivers in Zorin OS, and what to do when your Wi-Fi adapter is not recognized at all and there is no solution for your specific hardware.

  • How to use Zorin OS without installing on a PC or Mac

    In the previous tutorial I explained how to create a Linux bootable usb drive in Windows and macOS.

It is not necessary to perform a complete installation to first use and try out Linux to see if it is something for you. This short tutorial will explain how to boot from your previously created Linux usb drive so you can use Zorin OS without installing it on a PC or Mac.

  • How to print from your personal Chromebook without Google Cloud Print [Ed: How about... install proper GNU/Linux on the machine to actually have real printer support with CUPS?

    With Google Cloud Print being whisked away into the sunset in just a few weeks on December 31, 2020, many of you have seen the notice plastered at the top of your Chromebook’s print dialogue and have reached out to ask us what your options are going forward into the new year. Google Cloud Print, or GCP, was created during a time when Google needed to act as an intermediary for Chromebook users’ print jobs because many printer manufacturers did not create drivers for Chrome OS due to its lack of widespread usage. Since that has changed so drastically in the past few years, GCP is no longer necessary (even though it will be missed), and most printers work with Chromebooks out of the box with minimal setup.

  • How to Avoid Locking Yourself Out of Linux

    It can happen. It happens to every developer at least once in their lifetime.
    Let’s find a way to avoid having to start setting up all over again, or purging your entire virtual machine because you’ve been locked out.
    It’s common when working with Virtualization there will be a need to manage users and accounts manually but this is not very efficient. Let's write a bash script that can handle authentication for a new User.
    We begin by initializing the script as a file that can be accessed by Bash on our machine, using the hashbang !#.
    This hashbang will set up the program loader with an instruction to run the program /bin/sh or /bin/bash then pass /path/to/script as the first argument.

Why 2020 is the best time to use the Kate text editor

Filed under
KDE

The KDE Plasma Desktop has a lot to offer—a great desktop, a flexible file manager, and tightly integrated applications. However, it can be easy to overlook its default text editors, one of which is Kate. On December 14, 2020, Kate turns 20 years old, and in its two decades of development, it has achieved a perfect balance between a straightforward editor and a modest Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Kate seems, at first, unassuming. It looks like every other text editor—a big blank window ready to accept lots of typed input, a menu bar along the top, some metadata around the edges to indicate character encoding and line count. The moment you start using it, though, you realize that it has all the features you need, right where you want them.

This setup could likely be applied to other devices, opening up its possibilities into January and beyond.

    Electronics for the build — including an Arduino Mega that runs the show — are hidden inside of a 3D-printed, property-themed enclosure that resembles those found outside of any Disney theme park. This would potentially preserve a sense of wonder at the device, and diffuses the LEDs nicely.

That treasure trove of your personal information is shared with any party participating in the user tracking business model, which ends up meaning most apps on your phone.

For example Windows uses a specific carriage return (CR) which is depicted as ^M on Linux, followed by a line feed (LF) to indicate a newline. Linux and UNIX on the other hand use only the line feed to denote the end of a line. This often causes issues when transferring (or even copy and pasting) a file from Windows to Linux. It is hard to spot, and often leaves people scratching their head and wondering why their configuration file is not working.
