LibreOffice installation on Linux

Source: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibreOffice

Full installation

  • Performing a full installation is the recommended way to install LibreOffice in Linux. One would do this by installing the LibreOffice metapackage via a terminal:

    sudo apt-get install libreoffice

Selective installation

  • While this isn’t recommended, one may install a subset of the full installation. An example package set:
    • libreoffice-writer: Word processor
    • libreoffice-calc: Spreadsheet
    • libreoffice-impress: Presentation
    • libreoffice-draw: Drawing
    • libreoffice-base: Database
    • libreoffice-math: Equation editor
    • libreoffice-filter-mobiledev: Mobile Devices filters
    • libreoffice-filter-binfilter: legacy filters (e.g. StarOffice 5.2)

Pale moon – lighter Mozilla Firefox

Pale moon – lighter Mozilla Firefox

source: http://linux.palemoon.org/

Pale Moon is an Open Source Goanna-based web browser completely built from its own, independently developed source that was forked off from Firefox/Mozilla code a number of years ago, and focuses on efficiency and ease of use by carefully selecting features and optimizations to improve the browser’s stability and user experience, while offering full customization and a growing collection of extensions and themes to make the browser truly your own.

This browser, even though fairly close to Gecko-based browsers like Mozilla Firefox in how it works, is based on a different layout engine and offers a different set of features. It aims to provide close adherence to official web standards and specifications in its implementation (with minimal compromise), and purposefully excludes a number of features to strike a good balance between general use, performance, and technical advancements on the Web.

Install in Debian 9.0

Source: https://software.opensuse.org/download.html? project=home:stevenpusser&package=palemoon

For Debian 9.0 run the following as root:

You can add the repository key to apt. Keep in mind that the owner of the key may distribute updates, packages and repositories that your system will trust (more information). To add the key, run:

apt-key add - < Release.key

Anbox: Android in a box for Linux

Anbox puts the Android operating system into a container, abstracts hardware access and integrates core system services into a GNU/Linux system. Every Android application will be integrated with your operating system like any other native application.

To achieve our goal we use standard Linux technologies like containers (LXC) to separate the Android operating system from the host. Any Android version is suitable for this approach and we try to keep up with the latest available version from the Android Open Source Project.

Features


 

Open Source

The whole source code is available as Open Source and licensed under the terms of the Apache and GPLv3 license.

 

No limits

As Anbox is running an entire Android system, conceptually any application can run.

 

Secure

Anbox puts Android apps into a tightly sealed box without direct access to hardware or your data.

 

Performant

Runs Android without hardware virtualization and seamlessly bridges over hardware acceleration features.

 

Integrated

Tightly integrated with the host operating system to offer a rich feature set.

 

Convergent

Anbox scales across different form factors similar like Android does. It works on a laptop and a mobile phone.

rEFInd boot menu toolkit for UEFI

rEFInd presents a graphical menu for selecting your     boot OS.
rEFInd is a boot menu and maintenance toolkit for UEFI-based machines like all new PCs and Intel Macs. It can be used to boot multiple operating systems. It also provides a way to enter and explore the EFI pre-boot environment.
I was able to solve boot problems with HP laptop which wouldnt show Linux Deepin while booting (only Windows was showing)

Features

  • Support for EFI 1.x and UEFI 2.x computers
  • Support for Mac and PC platforms
  • Graphical and text-mode boot selector
  • Auto-detection of available EFI boot loaders
  • Directly launch Linux 3.3.0 and later kernels with EFI stub loader support
  • Maintenance-free Linux kernel updates — boot-time auto-detection means that no configuration file changes are needed after a kernel update
  • Set boot-time options from a list
  • Manually edit boot-time options
  • Launch EFI programs such as an EFI shell (available from third parties)
  • Launch OS X and Windows recovery tools
  • Reboot into the firmware setup utility (on some UEFIs)
  • Try before installation via a CD-R or USB flash drive image
  • Secure Boot support (requires separate shim or PreLoader program)
  • Includes EFI drivers for ext2/3fs, ext4fs, ReiserFS, Btrfs, HFS+, and ISO-9660

QtADB Cross Platform Android Manager

QtADB | Your android manager

The QtADB 2.0 is officially under vast development. Unfortunately the heat outside, all of the summer attractions and my professional life slows programming down. The good news is that FileManager features seems to work flawlessly on Rooted and even Unrooted devices. Also what is the main point of QtADB – many devices can work at the same time.

Latest version is: 0.8.1

Solus OS

Download | Solus Project

Solus Operating System is available for 64-bit (x86_64) computers, and currently comes in two main flavours. The beta2 ISO is a past release, using stable repositories. The daily ISO is updated as often as we stabilise the repositories, and as such is far more up to date than the older beta2. We recommend you use a USB stick instead of optical media, and when doing so please note that “unetbootin” is not supported, as it will not work at all.

You can install Solus on either an older BIOS-only machine, or newer UEFI devices.
