Las novedades de Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr. Una vez con la descarga de Ubuntu 14.04 LTS y cía en marcha, es buen momento para comentar las novedades que trae esta nueva versión en todos sus sabores, o en los más importantes al menos, léase Ubunt, Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu y Ubuntu GNOME. En el apartado de generalidades nos encontramos con el kernel Linux 3.13, Xorg 1.15 y Mesa 10.1.0, además de Firefox 28 y LibreOffice 4.2 como navegador web y suite ofimática por defecto, por citar dos de los pesos pesados de GNU/Linux. Nada sorprendente, aunque los cambios bajo el capó son numerosos.

Lo más interesante, sin embargo, son las novedades que presenta cada una de las ediciones de Trusty Tahr, comenzando por la propia Ubuntu, la más llamativa en cuanto a novedades, valga la redundancia… Ubuntu 14.04 Y aquí aparece la primera nueva característica de utilidad: menús integrados en el borde superior de la ventana. Kubuntu 14.04 ¿Qué hay de nuevo en Kubuntu 14.04? Xubuntu 14.04 No es lo único, por supuesto. Lubuntu 14.04 Ubuntu GNOME 14.04. ¿Un Mountain ideal para Ubuntu 14.04? Acabamos de echar a andar la zona Mountain y hace un mes que salió Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, posiblemente el lanzamiento más importante del año en lo que a distribuciones GNU/Linux se refiere… ¡Blanco y en botella!

Lo cierto es que me apetecía mucho probar a fondo la última versión de Ubuntu y la oportunidad de hacerlo con una de las máquinas de Mountain redondeaba la tarea. Sin embargo, si lo de arrancar con Ubuntu lo tenía claro desde un principio, elegir un PC se me ha hecho más complicado de lo que esperaba. Con el catálogo de Mountain a mi disposición, con la premisa de que van a ser varios los equipos de Mountain que pasen por mis manos… ¿con cuál comenzar? ¿Cómo enfocarlo? Para que me entendáis mejor, si tuviese que comprarme un ordenador ahora mismo en base al catálogo de Mountain, no me complicaría demasiado. Primero, porque hace nada que lo han renovado por completo, reduciendo el número de equipos y concretando una oferta de lo más interesante.

Y así ando, un poco perdido. Steel 10. Things to do after installing Ubuntu 15.04. The latest edition of Ubuntu, version 15.04, was released last week. It’s a great upgrade, though it still doesn’t showcase all the goodies Canonical has been developing, such as Mir and Unity 8. Just like any other operating system (sans Windows or Mac OS X), Ubuntu comes with a decent stack of applications pre-installed. They have done a great job at pre-installing applications such as Thunderbird, Firefox and LibreOffice.

These are the best of the breed open source applications which are quite popular even on Windows and Mac OS X. However, defaults are not for everyone. These are not mandatory. Kubuntu 15.04 With Plasma 5.3 - A Totally Different Kubuntu. The latest version of Kubuntu, 15.04, aka Vivid Vervet was released last week and it's available for free download. With this release it has become the first major distro to ship Plasma 5 as the default desktop environment. There are chances that some users may still have bad memories of Kubuntu. It's true. Back in 2011 when Ubuntu made a switch to Unity, I started looking for alternatives as their desktop environment was not suited for me.

This Kubuntu is different Fast forward to 2014 and Kubuntu turned out to be a totally different OS. I don't know the secret behind this surprising improvement in the distro. I asked Jonathan Riddell, the lead developer of Kubuntu, what contributed to this improvement. Riddell said, "I think the main factor is the awesome KDE team giving us such great software. The reason I started using Kubuntu on one of my systems is simple: it brings the best of two worlds together. Let's see what's new in Kubuntu 15.04. The first distro to ship Plasma 5 Look and feel.

I am a known KDE Plasma user so my reader may assume that I don’t run Ubuntu (with Unity) on my desktops.

Which is not true. I love technology so I use almost every possible technology, which I can afford or use (including Mac OS X and iOS). Using different technologies put me in a better position to evaluate the advantages of GNU/Linux or a particular distros or DE in comparison to the rest. I am actually a heavy Ubuntu user. I run three Virtual Private Servers (all powered by Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) which host my cloud services as well as my web sites. I also run it on my home server because Ubuntu does a great job as a server.

My desktops are not totally Ubuntu-free; I do run Ubuntu in a virtual machine to keep an eye on the current development. So what do I think of the current release? I am genuinely impressed! Bringing back the goodies I used to be an Ubuntu user before Unity happened. One of the biggest annoyances was moving application menus to the top bar. Vivaldi Web Browser Makes It Easier to Multi-Task Online. The team behind the Vivaldi web browser have made a new development snapshot available for download. Vivialdi 1.0.2.249.12 features a number of “nice improvements and bug fixes“, including better extensions support and a new look progress animation. But it is a brand new feature called ‘Web Panels’ that has us excited. Web Panels – like window snapping for websites Let’s imagine you want to keep an eye on two websites at the same time.

To do this in Google Chrome or Firefox without resorting to extensions you would (assuming you’re like me) open one of the sites in a new browser window and position this on the screen, in view, next to the other one. Not elegant but it works. But what if you wanted to keep an eye on a number of sites and switch between them? Vivaldi’s new web panels feature solves this conundrum inside the browser.

You add a website to the left-hand panel area manually, by clicking the ‘+’ and entering the URL. Lovely stuff. Mobile Sites Work Best Vivaldi In A Technical Preview. ▶ Linux to the rescue! How Ubuntu can help a computer in distress. This may sound like sacrilege, but it's not: Ubuntu Linux can be useful even if you’re a hardcore Windows user. That's because there’s no way to boot a full Windows system from a USB stick to troubleshoot your PC—well, not without an Enterprise version of Windows and Windows To Go—but anyone can make a free Ubuntu USB drive, CD, or DVD.

A Ubuntu live drive can be used as a digital Swiss army knife to troubleshoot all sorts of problems with any PC, whether you need to recover files from a failing computer, diagnose hardware problems, perform a deep virus scan from outside Windows, or even reset a forgotten Windows password. We’ll be getting our hands dirty with some Linux terminal commands here, but don’t worry—the Linux terminal won’t bite. You can even copy-paste most of these commands directly into the terminal.

Create Ubuntu Live media To get started, you’ll need a Linux live USB drive, CD, or DVD. Just insert the live drive into a computer and reboot. Recover files from a failing drive. Is Ubuntu moving away from .deb packages? Here is the complete story. Canonical loves to shake things up. After introducing Unity, HUD, Mir, Click and Snappy the sponsor of Ubuntu is now contemplating moving away from just .deb based desktop and adopting its own Snappy.

Will Cooke, Ubuntu Desktop Engineering Manager, posted on Google+ "Our plan for 15.10 (which is still being finalised, and will be discussed in more depth at UOS in a couple of weeks) is to have a build based on Snappy Personal and so the current .deb based Desktop Next image will be going away and will be replaced with the new Snappy version. " Cooke’s post has the potential to spread confusion among users and the Linux community, so to clear things up, I talked to Ubuntu Community managers Alan Pope and Michael Hall, and Canonical engineer Robert Ancell. Is Desktop Next getting too Personal? Snappy Personal is a successor of Desktop Next (a term used by Canonical to describe “The next generation of Ubuntu built on Unity 8 / Mir”). Not moving away from Debian More work for developers?
