UBports is very aware of the current situation involving Huawei.

The position of UBports is that Free Software allows choice and protects developers and users. Ubuntu Touch is Free Software and can be used under GPL and Ubuntu trademark licensing. UBports will decide to work with manufacturers on a case by case basis, whenever we feel the situation benefits the community and freedom of choice.

I just released a new version of Arronax.

Arronax is a program that allows you to create and edit starters for programs and locations (*.desktop files) under Linux. Besides a standalone program there are optional plugins for the file managers Caja, Nautilus and Nemo.

Arronax is written in Python and uses GTK for the graphical user interface.

5 Best Application Launchers for Ubuntu and Linux Mint - You have options...

Ubuntu (and Linux Mint) is one of the most used Linux distributions worldwide. It is also the reason why it has the maximum number of available programs for itself. Ubuntu’s default application launcher is decent and good enough for most users. The community also provides exciting alternatives. Some of them may not aim for optimal usability but have features that you didn’t know existed. Here are 5 top picks for best application launchers on Ubuntu.

Remember you can install one or two and test and always still use the normal menus. You don't have to move off what you already have, so try out other options.

Alan Pope / Ubuntu Linux: Publish Your Unity Games in the Snap Store.

Snap lends itself well to packaging and distributing free games to Linux users.

Snap support is available for over 40 Linux distributions, so with one build of a snap, you can reach millions of Linux gamers. The same snap will work across all those distributions without you needing to test on each one.

System76 firmware update

Since my first (and unique) System76 laptop purchase I have never had a kind word for this company. I have been always complaining about their policy to support just Ubuntu... However it seems they did some steps toward to non Ubuntu or Pop_os users, in fact I was able to update the firmware just with a usb iso (pop_os!) in demo mode and everything worked totally fine as described in their documentation.

At least for one time System76 were been able to let me say something positive about you! 🍻

5 Things that make Linux Mint better than Ubuntu for beginners

Ubuntu and Linux Mint are unarguably the most popular desktop Linux distributions (mmm and Manjaro is also ranking very high but probably not for beginners). While Ubuntu is based on Debian, Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu. Question is why to use an Ubuntu derivative or a Debian derivative instead of using the source itself. The answer to the question is derivative is better.

Hardcore Debian users would disagree but Ubuntu makes Debian better (or should I say easier?). Similarly, Linux Mint makes Ubuntu better.

Note that the comparison is mainly between Ubuntu Unity and GNOME vs Linux Mint’s Cinnamon desktop. A few parameters might not be applicable to other versions while a few may still hold water.

But read about the features and see if you agree with these differences for beginners to Linux at

#FOSS #linuxmint #ubuntu

A friend asked me what I think about the #Librem 13" notebook and now I wonder if one would want to use #Purism on it or would use #Ubuntu or similar instead.

I mean the idea with the hardware design is good, not sure how "open" the HW actually is, but why would one want to use a different #Linux at all? Why not use the OS you're used to? I mean for many cases I like to use #Mint or #Ubuntu (headless server version) anyway, so why bother to dig into Purism at all?

Suggestions, ideas and opinions welcome! Anyone using one of the laptops?

4 of the Best Screen Recorders for Ubuntu and Linux

There are plenty of reasons you might need to record your screen. Maybe you’re a developer looking to demonstrate an app you built. Perhaps you’re looking to do an instructional screencast. You might just want to show a family member how to do something.

You have plenty of choices when it comes to which screen recorder to use on Ubuntu. Some are simple to use, while others are more complicated but have additional features. It also depends on whether you prefer a GUI or the command line.

Personally, I’ve been using SimpleScreeRecorder for a while on Manjaro KDE and have been very happy with it.

Updating software that was installed using Make Install

!The Lazy Admin Club

If I've installed something using make install (in this case libmodsecurity) and I wish to update at a later date... do I need to do a make uninstall first? And then download the latest source files and go through the process again? Or can I just do another make install - will it just overwrite and update any files previously installed? What's best practice?

The pointlessness of the FSF endorsed distros based on Ubuntu...

A pure Free-Software distro is a very hard ambition as well as an hard goal to accomplish, you have to deal with your hardware and if your hardware is not compliance with the free Software it is almost impossible running a pure libre distro. But back to time when even installing a standard distro was an impossible task, Ubuntu came out helping a lot of people making easier installing linux on whatever hardware. However we have to flip the point of observation, at the beginning there were just free drivers mostly made through reverse engineering, most of them were too buggy or unreliables, and the few closed drivers were hard to obtain or unavailable to the end users. Hence running a linux distro and having a laptop or a PC with 100% hardware recognized was very hard to achieve but not for Ubuntu. Ubuntu made easy installing blob binaries on Linux and making your hardware properly working, cool! All of we are in debt with Canonical for this because Ubuntu broken this barrier and helped all the distro to achieve the same, pointing the direction to follow. The main point is Ubuntu used closed software to achieve its goal, it pursued a pragmatic approach instead of an ethical one and it was right.

Ubuntu also decided to focus on a smaller set of packages respect to Debian, from which it derivates, and it takes care only the packages available on the "main" repo while all the others are in the "universe" repo and are handled by the community. However to release Ubuntu the packages in "universe" don't need to be bugs free like the ones in Debian. As a matter of fact Debian is released when all the critical bugs are closed, then basically all the packages in Debian stable are working while, even in a Ubuntu LTS, the packages that are in the universe repo can still be buggy.

An Ubuntu LTS can have software more updated than a Debian Stable but the latter is 100% reliable and secure. Ubuntu takes care only of the packages that are strategic for the Canonical's business and has several partnerships with hardware and softwares vendors to provide binaries blobs and closed software on his platform in the name of the pragmatism and customers satisfaction. Fine, but now is clear that Ubuntu is not the best choice for a pure linux distro, when you take out from Ubuntu the closed softwares you lost all the points that make Ubuntu a pragmatic distro and eventually you have just a distro with an unusual repositories organization and with most of those packages available quite buggy.

Even FSF noticed that and as a matter of fact they switched from Ubuntu to Debian for their gNewSense distro. It is important to remember that Debian was financed, long time ago, by the FSF itself because it actually promotes free software by default but it is not restrictive like the FSF does and that caused a separation that still continues.

My suggestion is, if you like to have a FSF endorsed distro based on deb you had better to avoid any Ubuntu derivates and move on the ones based on Debian like the already mentioned gNewSense or PureOS and don't forget that Debian is 100% free software by default.
