Install VGA Driver Intel Q45/Q43 for Linux Mint:

Hi,

In Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon, I can’t install the VGA Driver for Intel Q45/Q43. The problem is the display resolution is still 1024×768 with Unknown Display VGA.

I’m using this code in Terminal ‘after every login’ to make the resolution 1920×1080!

“`

xrandr –newmode $(cvt 1920 1080 60 | grep Mode | sed -e ’s/.*”/1920×1080/’)

xrandr –addmode VGA-1 1920×1080

“`

Any idea, please?

I decided to try Linux (Manjaro) but when I’m booting with nonfree version, it freezes at this stage. My setup is: Nvidia 1050ti, i7 8750h, 480gb ssd, 8gb ram:

Use the same steam files beetwen Windows and PoP OS:

Hey, my main objective is to create a common exfat drive on which I can install games that are able to run both under windows and ubuntu. For this purpose I decided to utilize a 1TB HDD exfat and in order to accomplish the main objective I’ve followed these steps:

  • I’ve downloaded RE:2 Remake, Dragon’s Dogma DA and Monster Hunter World through Steam for Windows, selecting the HDD for the steamlibrary
  • I moved on ubuntu. Downloaded Steam and selected the same folder as the main library.
  • The games are being detected so the only things steam downloads are the shaders for Vulkan and OpenGL and I can see the games ready under my library
  • I’ve updated proton to 4.11

Here comes the obstacle: when I click on play, the games won’t launch. It happens with every single game. If I try to download the games on the ubuntu HDD and play them through proton the games work fine.

Am I missing a step or what? Should I need to configure a WINEPREFIX for each of them? thank you!

Canonical to Sponsor Microsoft’s First Windows Subsystem for Linux Conference:

Canonical, the company behind the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system, announced that they will be an official sponsor of Microsoft’s first-ever Linux Conference for WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux).

Announced earlier this fall, WSLconf, the first Microsoft Linux Conference for WSL (Windows Subsystem for Linux), a Windows 10 feature that allows users to run various GNU/Linux distributions on top of their Windows installations, will take place next spring from March 10th to 11th, and it looks like Canonical will be there to give presentations and also sponsor the event.

Meet The New Linux Desktop That Offers A Unique Twist On Ubuntu 19.10:

Are you a fan of the Cinnamon Desktop used in Linux Mint, but prefer more recent software and the familiarity of the Ubuntu ecosystem? If so, there’s a brand new spin of Ubuntu 19.10 that may interest you. Say hello to Ubuntu Cinnamon (or, as Michael Tunnell from This Week in Linux cleverly dubbed it, “CinnaBuntu”).

Ubuntu Cinnamon is a brand new “remix” project that incorporates the Cinnamon Desktop Environment into Ubuntu. It’s not an official “flavor” of Ubuntu, but the developers are hoping that — like Ubuntu Budgie and Ubuntu MATE before it — it’s welcomed by both the community and Canonical to eventually join the ranks of the official Ubuntu family.

Chrome now warns you when your password has been stolen:

Google is rolling out Chrome version 79 today, and it includes a number of password protection improvements. The biggest addition is that Chrome will now warn you when your password has been stolen as part of a data breach. Google has been warning about reused passwords in a separate browser extension or in its password checkup tool, but the company is now baking this directly into Chrome to provide warnings as you log in to sites on the web.

You can now search through Android Open Source Project code:

At the core of every flagship Android phone, underneath the layers of brand-specific and device-specific extras, lies the same open-source foundation of Android, the Android Open Source Project. To help us all better understand that foundation, Google has made it possible to browse and search through Android Open Source Project code in a way that makes sense.

Google breaks down complex projects like Android and Chromium into smaller individual Git repositories, with Android having over 1500 different open source repositories. To help make the code more accessible to those outside of Google, the company offers things like Chromium Code Search. As the name suggests, the tool gives you the option to search as well as browse through the Chromium code as though it were one large repository.

Xs:code launches subscription platform to monetize open-source projects:

Open source is a great source of free tools for developers, but as these projects proliferate, and some gain in popularity, the creators sometimes look for ways to monetize successful ones. The problem is that it’s hard to run a subscription-based, dual-license approach, and most developers don’t even know where to start. Enter Israeli startup xs:code, which has created a platform to help developers solve this problem.

The platform is available for the first time starting today in beta. You can sign up for free. Xs:code has raised $500,000 in pre-seed money to date.
