Re: New Buntu's

Thanks Danum. Good to see you. Hope all has been well. I've heard good things about Neon. I take it they're putting out a new spin based on *buntu 18.04? What would distinguish it from Kubuntu? Hi Mark, yes they are doing a spin on 18.04, most of it is already built. the thing with Neon is it is bu...

Re: New Buntu's

I took Kubuntu for a live test run and was impressed as well. I'm still looking for a native KDE to replace my ol' reliable M11, and both Kubuntu and Mint KDE check nearly all the boxes. Try KDE Neon, built by KDE developers on a Ubuntu base, new release should be out in the next week or so. https:...

Re: How to import previous passwords to new firefox installation

Today I faced the problem to transfer previously generated passwords and logins to a new firefox installation. In the actual Firefox versions there is no way to export/ import data. I do not know, why Mozilla does not build in such a routine. If I were you I would look again under Tools, where you ...

Re: MX-15/16 Repository: The Skype Thread

Mike, Ubuntu do not get away with anything, all Ubuntu do is provide a link to download from, https://repo.skype.com/deb/pool/main/s/skypeforlinux/
As do other distro's

Re: MX-15/16 Repository: The Skype Thread

I would agree that you cannot legally have Skype in the repo's, just as you cannot legally host them elsewhere. They would come back at you with the fact they provide both deb's and rpm's for linux users. While it is not good for all Linux users of Skype whatever distro they are using, it would take...

Re: MX-15/16 Repository: The Skype Thread

We told you earlier in the year that older versions of the Skype desktop apps on Windows and macOS were to be forcibly deprecated on March 1, but that the Qt-based VoIP client for Linux had a temporary reprieve. ‘Temporary’ because, as a Skype rep made plain back at the time, deprecation was inevit...

Re: MX-15/16 Repository: The Skype Thread

Stevo, do you need permission to redistribute Skype ??. Yes, but you will more than luck in getting it. The software is licensed, not sold, and Microsoft reserves all rights to the software not expressly granted by Microsoft under these Terms. This licence does not give you any right to, and you may...

Re: Linux Ransomeware Payout 1 billion $

Hi Jerry, my post was more in relation to Mepis 11 and 12 users, as both default kernels have this vulnerability.

Re: Linux Ransomeware Payout 1 billion $

Race condition in mm/gup.c in the Linux kernel 2.x through 4.x before 4.8.3 allows local users to gain privileges by leveraging incorrect handling of a copy-on-write (COW) feature to write to a read-only memory mapping, as exploited in the wild in October 2016, aka "Dirty COW." Dirty COW (designated...

Re: Kubuntu Neon - Plasma 5

so I finally bit the bullet and replaced it with an installation, not of the normal Kubuntu 16.04 LTS, but of Kubuntu Neon, which is actually the KDE developer's iso to showcase the latest KDE Plasma 5 and other KDE software. You can choose from 3 different iso images: "Users Stable", "Developers S...
