I have several multiboot systems (Arch, Fedora, Mint, Ubuntu, etc.). On each I have chosen to make Fedora the "master" distro; that is the distro that controls grub. On occasion, after a system upgrade when Fedora updates the kernel, I "lose" one of my installations -- usually Arch Linux. What I mean by "lose" is that the distro is still on the grub menu but when chosen, booting fails.

Why does this happen? Well, when Fedora updates the grub configuration...

My Unity Desktop

Posted 10-14-2015 at 12:54 PM by reykev

I think I like my Unity desktop environment the best, of what I have tried so far.

I have various version of the GNOME desktop and like them.
I have KDE Plasma and like it.
I have XFCE and like it too.

But I find I have the most control in Unity. For instance, I use this thing called 'System Load Indicator' that I got from the software center. It sits in my top bar and is very informative. I like having that there. In Plasma, I can't do that. They...

I didn't know I had one 'till I got an email this morning telling me I did. Cool!

So, I'm an XP refugee, having left the windows pain when they dropped support in May 2014. I got myself a new Linux machine from System 76 with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installed on it and haven't looked back since.

NEWS 151010: Build 150916 has been replaced by Build 151010, which is totally error-free and has some extra features.

COMPARISON with my previous Build from 150916
News in Build 151010: Most important is that Build 151010 can run and be installed in VirtualBox and VMware. Also that OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for Intel/AMD (radeon) and Nvidia (nouveau) chipsets is enabled. Ive also added the Twitter and Viber apps. Very useful apps (I think).
