#DTE just added a new tutorial to Archive.org for making Ubuntu Gnome easier to use for people with photophobia and migraines.
#DarkThemeEverywhere #Ubuntu #Linux
UBports project announced today that they managed to successfully run their modification of Canonical’s abandoned Ubuntu Touch mobile OS on the Nexus 5 smartphone! Good thing that Ubuntu Touch was / is open source, so this project did not fall into oblivion -> http://ow.ly/JXiR30dImYD #mobile #Linux #Ubuntu #UBports #Nexus5
So it turns out the #Ubuntu motd system also asks for some info about the users systems. And of course, it's all opt-out without the user ever being informed about what's going on. https://gist.github.com/anonymous/fdc1cab8cb193ca19aa4c663c1ebd1f5#file-gistfile1-txt-L245
Anyone running #Ubuntu that is curious about #Debian #Stretch, I'll let you know how this #Linux #Distro to other Linux distro update goes... Oh, and if you have suggestions for extra steps to take, send them my way. I won't be doing her computer until all of the others are finished, so I'll check in here before I start.
Volunteers tailor Ubuntu Linux to UK’s health service
A group of British IT health care specialists have tailored the #Ubuntu #Linux distribution for use by the UK’s national health service #NHS on its workstations. The alpha version of #NHSbuntu was unveiled at the South West CIO Forum on 27 April.
Having reviewed the presentation I am not sure what is so special in #NHSbuntu that makes it different from other operating systems based on free software. Full disk encryption by default is not rocket science those days.
They also mention dependency and upgrade hell. My understanding that when upgrading #Ubuntu major releases one does that by virtually reinstalling everything.
