In this special episode of Destination Linux, we have an in-depth interview with Matthew Miller of Fedora. We are big fans of Fedora and Red Hat, especially Ryan :), so we are really excited about this episode!

If you’ve never seen an interview episode of Destination Linux then you are in for a treat! Our in-depth interviews are totally unique because we dedicate the entire show to the interview so instead of 5-10 minutes, our interviews can last over an hour since we cover all of the questions we can think of.

We also ask our Patrons to submit questions for our interview guests so if you’d like to ask questions to our next guest then please go to https://destinationlinux.org/patreon to become a Patron.

Rank #5: Destination Linux Update

Podcast cover
Read more

This will be a short discussion on some changes occurring that we think everyone is going to enjoy.

Why the change?

Scheduling for all four hosts

Reaching a broader audience with Linux

Providing a more interactive show

What is Changing

The next stop on our Journey for Destination Linux is Twitch! . . . and YouTube live. We hope this brings a larger audience into the Linux world and provides more opportunity for people to participate in the show.

Patrons

Patrons will still continue to get the interviews early, when possible. The live recording on Youtube and Twitch will not remain on the site after the show is over. However, Patrons will get a link to the archived live shows if they would like to go back and watch that version.

To respect our guests and continue to allow them to make announcements that aren’t yet ready for public consumption we will not be streaming live shows with the guests. The exception will be Patrons who can join us via Zoom as always.

We will be recording the shows on Sundays and they will now be released on Fridays instead of Mondays. This will allow us enough time to edit the episode for release.  

Thank you for all of your continued support

This Week in Solus – Install #46

  • Solus 3 has had quite the reception but the work continues including a TO-DO list posted on Solus site for all the features, enhancements and bug fixes they’re working on. https://dev.solus-project.com/T4235
  • Some High Priority Items that are being worked on I think will be refreshing for many
    • Third Party support is one of the pain points I’ve heard and Ikey and the team have taken note. They’re going to be working on improvements to third party offerings in SNAP, upgrade improvements, and potentially more third party options.
    • X-Stack upgrades to help with compatibility with APU + AMD GPU combos
    • Improvements to Nautilus and Samba support
    • Preston package and licensing scanning and ferryd for faster indexing and syncing of repos.
    • Replacing eopkg with sol for software framework

I really liked your interview with Martin Wimpress especially just before getting to meet him at Linuxfest Northwest! Great guy from a rural area like myself.

So I have a problem I thought I’d ask you about?

Hey has anyone else seen this: In Clementine the Spotify plugin no longer works correctly. I used to be able to access saved music and playlists. But now I can’t see my spotify playlists. It will however play an old saved Clementine playlist from before things broke.

Thanks guys, keep up the great work!

hi,

many thanks for your great podcast. It is a trusted companion when looking at the tail lights of the car in front of me, every day when I drive to work.

My question may be stupid, but Google doesn’t give me a direct answer to following question:

I want to reinstall my Linux Mint. When I make a backup of all my files (from /home) onto eg. a EXT4 USB drive (copy/paste), then I nuke the Mint install and reinstall from scratch,

when I then restore the backed up /home data files, what happens with the rights on the file? (ownership & file permissions)

Are they being brought across from the original install, or are they set correctly for the new install?

Are there backup tools which make sure that file permissions are set correctly when restored on a new system?

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Tips & Tricks:
Head and Tail Commands in the Terminal
When you’re looking through files sometimes you just need to see the first or last lines of the document to see if it’s the one you need or get the info you want. The ‘head’ and ‘tail’ command will do just that.

‘head’ grabs the first lines of a file and ‘tail’ displays the last lines.

As an example you could type head test.txt to get the first 10 lines.
Or use the switch -n followed by a number to print any number of lines. Example: head -n 15 test.txt will give you 15 beginning lines.

Tail does the same thing but starting from the bottom.
