  1. puNES is an open source NES emulator for Windows and Linux A PC is my choice when it comes to gaming, mostly because I play a lot of strategy games. But I've owned a few consoles, the PS4 being my 2nd favorite platform currently. Nintendo's products weren't/aren't available in my Country, so as a kid I didn't have access to its cool consoles. That was the case, until I came across a Famiclone (Famicom clone) at a local store. My family gifted me one, and I got to play some games such as Ice Climber, Super Mario Bros, Excite Bike, et
  2. For a while now you've been able to stream games using NVIDIA GeForce NOW in your browser, however it looks like NVIDIA will be making that a bit more official for Linux. Currently on certain platforms like Windows and macOS, NVIDIA have a dedicated downloadable application for their GeForce NOW streaming service. They expanded support into the browser for ChromeOS / Chromebooks in the Summer, which initially needed other platforms to spoof their browser string to ChromeOS but that hasn't been needed for a while. In a recent announcement about support for G
  3. After almost 5 and a half years of no new releases, gmusicbrowser was finally updated. The latest gmusicbrowser 1.1.16 brings support for Opus files, adds musixmatch.com as a music source to the Lyrics plugin, and it fixes the replaygain, equalizer and gapless playback with mpv 0.28.0 and newer, among many other small changes. gmusicbrowser is an audio player for large music collections, that can play mp3, ogg, flac (and opus/mpc/ape/m4a with gstreamer, mplayer or mpv) and more. The application was quite popular a while back, thanks to its highly customi
  4. File Hash Checker is a lightweight program that can be used to check the integrity of files Have you ever wondered if a file that you downloaded is safe, or if a backed up file is still working fine and not corrupt? Sometimes you may encounter errors when a file doesn't work. It is possible that the browser had been closed accidentally, or the network connection was ended abruptly, or in the worst case scenario, the file could have been tampered with. For backups, it is possible that the storage device is not working properly anymore, e.g. when a DVD
  5. QVGE is an open source graph creation program for Windows and Linux If you want to analyze statistics, a good way to do this is by writing down the details. When you want to compare the performance of something over a long-term, it is better to use some sort of visual representation like charts, diagrams or graphs. Now if graphs are your thing, you will find QVGE useful. It is an open source graph creation program for Windows and Linux. The program's start page lets you save and load documents. Since we don't have any on the first r
  6. The Qt advantage? 'We're a weird by-product of coffee machines and cars' Interview KDE Plasma is a Linux desktop environment which has just been updated to 5.20 - but why should users consider it instead of GNOME, the default for Ubuntu and Red Hat, or the lightweight Xfce? We spoke to Plasma maintainers David Edmundson and Jonathan Riddell. KDE is a Linux desktop built using the Qt framework KDE dates from 1996, when it was announced by Matthias Ettrich, a Linux fan who sought an alternative to Microsoft’s Windows 3.1, of which he said back in 2003: “
  7. A group of academics from the University of California and Tsinghua University has uncovered a series of critical security flaws that could lead to a revival of DNS cache poisoning attacks. Dubbed "SAD DNS attack" (short for Side-channel AttackeD DNS), the technique makes it possible for a malicious actor to carry out an off-path attack, rerouting any traffic originally destined to a specific domain to a server under their control, thereby allowing them to eavesdrop and tamper with the communications. "This represents an important milestone — the fir
  8. Intel on Tuesday evening released their 20201110 CPU microcode package as their first collection of updated CPU microcode binaries since June and it's a big update. Following the disclosure of some 40 new security advisories for their products including the notable "PLATYPUS" vulnerability affecting Intel RAPL, they released the Intel 20201110 CPU microcode package for Linux users to address these security problems as well as other CPU bugs. INTEL-SA-00381 is addressed as an information disclosure vulnerability around the fast store forward predictor and an AVX fl
  9. [No root required] Control your Android phone from your computer with Scrcpy There are many tools available online which claim to mirror your phone's screen on your computer's monitor. Some of these are online service or closed source programs, some are premium software. Forget virtual machines, those aren't easy to set up and can get quite resource intensive. A friend of mine tinkers with broken phones, and he told me that he uses an open source tool called Scrcpy to recover data from phones with damaged or non-functional
  10. Split, merge, rotate pages in PDF documents with Pdfarranger Viewing a PDF document is easy, you likely use your web browser or a standalone tool for it. But splitting or merging pages from PDFs is slightly complicated, as many viewers don't support that functionality. There are tons of premium/freemium programs and online services that offer various features, but you may not want to use these for one reason or another, e.g. for privacy reasons as you may not want to transfer your documents to an online service. If you pr
  11. Beginning in Dell's 2021 laptop models they are providing hardware-based "privacy buttons" to disable microphone and camera support. In preparations for more Dell laptops coming to market with these buttons, a Dell privacy driver is being prepared for the Linux kernel. These new Dell privacy buttons are basically hardware kill switches for the microphone and web camera video stream. The Dell privacy driver sent out on Tuesday for the Linux kernel is about manipulating the relevant LEDs and tracking the status of the hardware-based controls where as the actual toggling

  13. BleedingTooth is a remote code execution vulnerability affecting all Linux kernels going back to Linux 4.8. It allows an attacker within Bluetooth range to execute code on remote systems if Bluetooth is turned on the remote system and it's set to be discoverable thanks to a combination of security issues in the BlueZ library and heap-based type confusion on the Linux kernels L2CAP code. The BleedingTooth Bluetooth vulnerability in action. BleedingTooth is a really bad and very serious Linux kernel vulnerability. It allows someone within Bluetooth range to potentia
  14. Microsoft just released its new Chromium-based browser on Linux. Believe it or not, it's quite good. No one asked Microsoft to port its Edge browser to Linux. Indeed, very few people asked for Edge on Windows. But, here it is. So, how good -- or not -- is it? First, you should know that the experts always knew Edge would run on Linux. Today's Microsoft Edge isn't the one that first shipped. This model, which went into beta on Windows last year, is built on the open-source Chromium codebase. Besides being the foundation for Google Chrome, Chromium is the bed
  15. Microsoft finally brings its Chromium-based Edge in preview form to Linux Microsoft today announced that Edge is finally available for download on Linux. The Dev channel version of the Chromium-based browser makes it to the platform almost a year after the official announcement and as promised last month. The Redmond giant says that the release supports Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, and openSUSE distributions. The browser will be updated weekly, just like the Dev channel builds on other platforms. The company has also posted instructions for the process
  16. openSUSE Chairman Richard Brown made a really compelling argument for why a rolling release model is better than using "stable" packages that have to have fixes back-ported to them in a 35 minute video presentation at the joint openSUSE+LibreOffice Virtual Conference 2020 taking place this week. Richard Brown's main arguments for using a rolling release model are: Upstream packages change fast Upstream support is typically short, shorter than the life-time of some LTS distributions SUSE (and others) maintai
  17. Want to use the Windows calculator app on your Linux desktop? Well, now you can. This unexpected app port is arrives courtesy of the Uno Platform. They took the source code for Windows’s default Calculator app (which Microsoft made open source last year) and got it up and running on Linux desktops. And the resulting app is called Uno Calculator since they can’t use the Windows brand name. It’s available to install from the Snap Store which means it’s available to tonnes of users across tonnes of distros. The Uno Platform is a “code once, run everywhere” type
  18. Google and Intel warn of high-severity Bluetooth security bug in Linux Yes, it's serious, but high severity doesn't necessarily mean high risk. Enlarge Getty Images 48 with 32 posters participating, including story author Google and Intel are warning of a high-severity Bluetooth flaw in all but the most recent version of the Linux Kernel. While a Google researcher said the bug allows seamless code execution by attackers within Bluetooth range, Intel is characterizing
  19. The choice will not really be Windows or Linux, it will be whether you boot Hyper-V or KVM first, and Windows and Ubuntu stacks will be tuned to run well on the other. There have been a string of pieces wondering aloud whether Microsoft is going to rebase Windows on the Linux kernel in the future. I have a unique perspective on Microsoft's Linux involvement. I help deliver Ubuntu on Windows Subsystem for Linux in my job at Canonical. I regularly talk to many Microsoft employees working on Linux and various open source projects. I also get briefings on Micro
  20. Due to DXVK recently beginning to require Vulkan Transform Feedback (VK_EXT_transform_feedback) for this Direct3D translation layer popular with Linux gamers, Intel open-source developers have gone back and now implemented transform feedback support in the Intel "ANV" driver for Haswell era "Gen 7" graphics. While the Intel ANV Vulkan driver on Linux has always provided support going back to Haswell, in some areas it's been less than ideal due to stark hardware differences compared to Gen8 Broadwell graphics and newer. But with DXVK needing VK_EXT_transform_feedback no
  21. Debian GNU/Linux 10.6 has been announced today as the sixth ISO maintenance update of the latest stable Debian GNU/Linux 10 “Buster” operating system series. Debian GNU/Linux 10.6 is here two months after the Debian GNU/Linux 10.5 update to provide those who want to install the latest stable Debian GNU/Linux release an up-to-date installation media that includes all the important corrections and security updates. Debian GNU/Linux 10.6 packs a total of 53 updated packages with miscellaneous bug fixes, as well as 32 security updates that address some of the l
  22. SwagLyrics displays the lyrics of the song that's playing in Spotify desktop and the web version Spotify added support for Live Lyrics a few months ago (at least in some Countries). I don't like the way it has been implemented. First there is the gigantic text which looks odd, but the main problem with it is that when you click on the mic button the program loads the lyrics in the main pane. If you click on anything else, the window changes, so you can't browse/discover music and have the lyrics displayed at the same time.
  23. Microsoft Edge finally lands on Linux in October Preview Microsoft Edge fror Linux version will be available next month (Image credit: Microsoft / Windows Central) The revamped version of Microsoft Edge is set to be released on Linux in October, so there really isn’t long to wait now – at least for the initial test version. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella revealed that the preview version of Edge for Linux will be out next month and users will be able to grab the browser either from the Edge Insider website or via the native

  25. A Look at Kdenlive – Libre Video Editor for GNU/Linux I have done my fair share (or more) of video editing in my life, primarily using Adobe Premiere Pro as I was taught in college. However, I try not to use Windows unless I have to, and so I’ve been always on the hunt for better options for my GNU/Linux systems – and I think I’ve found my personal favourite video editor; Kdenlive. Kdenlive is a free video editor that up until this point, has yet to let me down for my personal needs, and has also been easily the simplest and fastest for encoding and exporting
