Chapeau 24 Beta now available For Download, Based on Fedora 24



Today a pre-release build of Chapeau 24 has been made available for download. If you've been eagerly waiting for the latest Chapeau release based on Fedora 24, now's your time. If you don't want to deal with any of the known issues listed below you may want to stick with Chapeau 23 for now. The current list of known issues are as follows (this list may change as issues are reported or fixed); the nouveau driver bundled with Fedora kernel 4.7.2 currently doesn't work with NVIDIA GTX970 GPUs due to a bug introduced in Linux kernel 4.6; if you have a GTX970, you will have to boot the live image in ‘basic graphics mode'; not all shortcuts are showing their Moka icons on the home screen.

Chapeau is a high-performance, cutting-edge operating system built from the GNU/Linux distribution Fedora Workstation with the GNOME desktop environment. In comparison to Fedora, Chapeau adopts a more relaxed approach to software licences and is intended to be just as useful for advanced users as it is easy for those new to using a Linux system. There is built-in access to third-party software and sources repositories not included in Fedora such as RPMFusion, DropBox, Steam, Adobe Flash and Oracle VirtualBox. Chapeau also includes pre-installed core packages to make the installation of new kernel modules pain-free, built-in remote and virtual system management tools, a selection of maintenance tools that come in especially handy when running Chapeau's live image on a DVD or USB drive to analyse and fix broken systems.


Distributed as a 64-bit Live DVD

While the distribution can be downloaded from Softpedia of its official website as a Live DVD ISO image approximately 2GB in size, which must be written on a DVD disc or a USB flash drive of 2GB or higher capacity in order to boot it from the BIOS of a computer.

Boot menu à la Fedora Linux

The minimal boot prompt presented in this Live DVD is identical with the one used in the official Fedora editions, allowing the user to quickly start the live environment without to much fuss. To access more boot options, one would have to enter the Troubleshooting entry, from where they can start the live environment in safe graphics mode, boot an existing OS from the first disk or run a memory test.

Known Issues

The current list of known issues are as follows (this list may change as issues are reported or fixed);
  • The nouveau driver bundled with Fedora kernel 4.7.2 currently doesn’t work with Nvidia GTX 970 GPUs due to a bug introduced in Linux kernel 4.6.
  • If you have a GTX970 you will have to boot the live image in ‘basic graphics mode’.
  • Not all shortcuts are showing their Moka icons on the home screen

How to Install Museeks 0.7 (Music Player) on Ubuntu / Linux Mint (PPA)


Museeks is a lightweight and cross-platform music player for Ubuntu Linux Systems. Museeks music player uses Node.js for back-end, electron (used to be atom-shell) for embedded browser and React.js as front-end framework.

Mussek 0.7 is the latest version of the music player. It has been released with the following changes:

Cover art support is the headline act in this latest update. When playing a track with album art embedded in the ID3 metadata it’ll show up. If this is missing Museeks will look for an image file in the track folder and display that. If that’s missing then you’ll see a fallback “no cover” image.

Rearrange tracks in the play queue

The option to run Museeks with native OS window frame is also present. Aside from making the app look a little nicer on your desktop it also solves a pet peeve of mine in the previous release: lack of minimise button.

Some fine tuning of the library detection backend also plays a part, and you’ll now be prompted, on first run, the add a music folder.

The app won’t automatically scan any newly added folders for music. You need to tap the ‘refresh’ button to make it comb through and detect your music tracks.

Lastly, but by no means least, you can quickly filter by album or artists by right-clicking on a track and selecting the appropriate option from the context menu.


How to Install Museeks 0.7 (Music Player) on Ubuntu / Linux Mint (PPA)

Museeks Music Player can be easily installed on Linux Ubuntu Systems – Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 14.10 and Linux Mint Systems. Open Terminal and run the following commands to install Museek music player on Linux Ubuntu:

For Ubuntu 32bit
cd ~/Downloads
wget https://github.com/KeitIG/museeks/releases/download/0.7.0/museeks-linux-ia32.zip
sudo unzip ~/Downloads/museeks-linux-*.zip -d /opt
sudo mv /opt/museeks-linux* /opt/museeks

For Ubuntu 64bit
cd ~/Downloads
wget https://github.com/KeitIG/museeks/releases/download/0.7.0/museeks-linux-x64.zip
sudo unzip ~/Downloads/museeks-linux-*.zip -d /opt
sudo mv /opt/museeks-linux* /opt/museeks

Once installed, it’s time to create the desktop file “museeks.desktop.” To do so, run the following command:
gedit ~/.local/share/applications/museeks.desktop

Now copy and paste the following code into the created museeks.desktop file and save.
[Desktop Entry] Name=Museeks
Exec=/opt/museeks/museeks
Terminal=false

  • Soma.fm support
  • Internet streams
  • Stream recorder
  • Podcasts
  • Radio Broadcasting
  • Look and feel
  • Multimedia Keys
  • Desktop integration (DBus Mpris2 compatible)
  • 2 skins



Sayonara 0.9.1 comes with a catalog of new features and improvements, including support for displaying cover art embedded in ID3 metadata, a new crossfader, and a faster spectrum analyzer.

How to Update : Linux Kernel 4.8 RC7 on Linux Mint and Ubuntu Derivatives


Linus Torvalds announced the release of Linux 4.8-rc7 a few minutes ago and it's looking like this release cycle will likely drag on with a 4.8-rc8 release being likely next week.

Linux kernel is the essential part of any Linux operating system. It is responsible for resource allocation, low-level hardware interfaces, security, simple communications, basic file system management, and more. Written from scratch by Linus Torvalds (with help from various developers), Linux is a clone of the UNIX operating system. It is geared towards POSIX and Single UNIX Specification compliances.
Includes powerful features

Linux provides users with powerful features, such as true multitasking, multistack networking, shared copy-on-write executables, shared libraries, demand loading, virtual memory, and proper memory management.

Initially designed only for 386/486-based computers, now Linux supports a wide range of architectures, including 64-bit (IA64, AMD64), ARM, ARM64, DEC Alpha, MIPS, SUN Sparc, PowerPC, as well as Amiga and Atari machines.


Linus wrote that while nothing huge is going on, there is more noise at this stage than he'd like, so probably will end up having 4.8-rc8 next week and the final release one week later than planned. However, that could still change if the week ahead is quiet.

At least Linux 4.8 is looking quite good and bringing a wide array of new features. As the kernel mailing list archives seem slow at the moment, Torvalds' message is embedded below.

Another week, another rc.

Normally rc7 is the last in the series before the final release, but by now I'm pretty sure that this is going to be one of those releases that come with an rc8. Things did't calm down as much as I would have liked, there are still a few discussions going on, and it's just unlikely that I will feel like it's all good and ready for a final 4.8 next Sunday.

That said, there's nothing *huge* going on, there was just more noise than I'd like. Part of rc7 is obviously the networking fixes that missed rc6 by mere minutes, but there are various other driver updates too (rdma, nvme and even a few pcmcia fixes - yeah, it's not quite dead yet). And a fair number of small architecture fixes (Al's uaccess fixes stand out, but there's some perf and KVM fixes and other random things going on too).

The shortlog may not be quite as short as I'd like, but it's appended and it's not exactly huge either - you can easily scroll through it and get a rough feel for the details).

Another thing that makes me say "might as well do an rc8" is that it doesn't look like linux-next is all that big, so I don't get the feeling that there is any particular pressure to open the merge window. There's a few features that look to be scheduled for merging up for 4.9 that I'm looking forward to, but another week won't hurt.

Of course, maybe things go *so* swimmingly the upcoming week that I decide that 4.8 is ready, and there really isn't anything in particular that worries me, but seeing fixes for fixes happening the last week just makes me go "Ehh, thing are still in flux".

Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” KDE released and Available To Download


Linux Mint 18 is a long term support release which will be supported until 2021. It comes with updated software and brings refinements and many new features to make your desktop even more comfortable to use.

Linux Mint KDE Edition is an open source and free distribution of Linux, a special edition of the well known Linux Mint operating system that uses KDE Plasma as its default and only operating system, providing a modern and productive OS.

Distributed as 64/32-bit Live DVDs

The KDE edition of Linux Mint is a community project that can be downloaded from Softpedia or the official Linux Mint website as two Live DVD ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware platforms (64-bit and 32-bit). Please note that you must deploy these ISO images to either DVD discs or USB sticks in order to boot them from the BIOS of a PC.

What News on Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” KDE ?

Plasma 5.6 and SDDM

This edition of Linux Mint features the KDE Plasma 5.6 desktop environment. Here's a video showing some of its new features:



The default display manager is SDDM.

The APT sources include the Kubuntu Backports PPA, which provides updates to newer versions of the Plasma desktop.


Update Manager

The update manager received many improvements, both visual and under the hood.

The main screen and the preferences screen now use stack widgets and subtle animations, and better support was given for alternative themes (toolbar icons are now compatible with dark themes, application and status icons are now themeable and dimmed text is now rendered with dynamic colors).

Two new settings were added to let you see and select kernel updates. Even though these aren’t really updates, but the availability of packages for newer kernels, the manager is now able to detect them and to present them for installation to you as a traditional update. These are level 5 updates but the new settings let you configure them independently.

The kernel selection window was completely redesigned and is now preceded with an information screen which explains what kernels are, how to select them at boot time and what happens to DKMS modules when multiple kernels are installed.

Linux Mint no longer ships lists of fixes and lists of regressions specific to particular kernels. With so many kernel revisions, so many fixes and so many regressions happening sometimes on a daily basis, this information was quickly outdated. Instead, it was replaced with links to relevant sources of information. For instance, if you select a particular kernel you can now quickly access its changelog and see all the bug reports marked against it.


The update manager was already configurable but it wasn’t clear how to configure it, and why. In particular, the concepts of regressions, stability and security weren’t clearly explained. To raise awareness around these concepts and to show more information, a new screen is there to welcome you to the update manager and to ask you to select an update policy.

This screen is complemented with a help section which explains what’s at play and what to consider when choosing a policy.

Although this screen is only shown once and its main purpose is to present information, it can also be used as a quick way to switch between sets of preferences and it can be launched from the Edit->Update Policy menu.

Other improvements

HiDPI support is largely improved in Linux Mint 18. Firefox and most of the Mint apps (mintdesktop, mintsystem, mintwelcome, mintlocale, mintdrivers, mintnanny, mintstick, mint-common, mintupdate, mintbackup and mintupload) migrated to GTK3.

Popular applications such as Steam, Spotify, Dropbox or even Minecraft were added to the Software Manager and are now easier to install.

All editions now support OEM installations.

Gufw, the graphical firewall configuration tool, was added to the default software selection and is now installed by default.

Main components

Linux Mint 18 features SDDM, KDE Plasma 5.6, a Linux kernel 4.4 and an Ubuntu 16.04 package base.

LTS strategy

Linux Mint 18 will receive security updates until 2021.

Until 2018, future versions of Linux Mint will use the same package base as Linux Mint 18, making it trivial for people to upgrade.

Until 2018, the development team won't start working on a new base and will be fully focused on this one.

Elementary OS 0.4 Loki (Stable) Released and Available For Download


The elementary OS team has announced the launch of elementary OS 0.4, code name "Loki": "After a little over a year of development, elementary is proud to announce the stable release of elementary OS Loki." 

elementary OS is an Ubuntu-based desktop distribution. Some of its more interesting features include a custom desktop environment called Pantheon and many custom apps including Photos, Music, Videos, Calendar, Terminal, Files, and more. It also comes with some familiar apps like the Midori web browser and Geary mail.

Loki is the newest version of elementary OS, a design-oriented and open source Linux-based operating system for desktops and laptops. It succeeds Freya which was released in April of 2015.

The previous release of elementary OS was downloaded about 1.2 million times, with 73% of those downloads coming from closed source OSes. elementary founder, Daniel Foré reports,
Rather than competing directly with existing open source projects, elementary seeks to grow the market share for open source software in general. And as we’ve seen with previous releases, that’s exactly what we’re doing.
We’ve closed about 1,000 issue reports and implemented over 20 blueprints. Altogether, these represent stability and security improvements, better internationalization, new features and options, and much more.

We’ve also made progress on our mission to create Open Source jobs. We’ve paid out about $8,700 in bounties during the Loki development cycle, bringing our total to $17,521. We’ve also added a new part time employee to our payroll, Blake Kostner, which you can hear more about on the simply elementary podcast.

Audio
The Audio indicator features a redesigned, more compact set of controls for music apps and larger icons for output volume with a convenient mute switch. Now you can also control microphone levels from the same spot when the microphone is in use.

Network
Quickly enable and disable wired and wireless networking with the new Network indicator. For wireless devices you’ll see a clear, scrollable list of all networks in range instead of clumsy submenus.

Bluetooth
The super simple Bluetooth indicator shows bluetooth status, what devices you’re connected to, and lets you connect to or disconnect from known devices with a single click.

Power
On laptops and other systems with batteries, the Power indicator shows the charging status and remaining battery life. We also now show battery status for a large number of peripherals like wireless mice and keyboards, plus a handy list of apps currently using a lot of power.
