Unity 7 To Get New Window Decorations With Anti-Aliased Corners

Thu, 2014-01-30 16:10

Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr: Unity 7 will get new window decorations inside Unity which will not depend on the Compiz “decor” plugin or a decorator such as gtk-window-decorator. The new Unity window decorations will support full GTK3 theming, they will introduce improved resizing speed and, something many of you have requested, anti-aliased corners.

5 Ways In Which You Can Try Out Ubuntu On Your Computer ‘Hassle-Free’

Thu, 2014-01-30 15:43

However, are you one of those ‘newbies’ who desperately want to try Linux (Ubuntu) for instance but are not sure where to start?

How To Enable AMD Radeon Dynamic Power Management in Ubuntu 13.10

Wed, 2014-01-29 16:09

The open source AMD Radeon driver got dynamic power management support with Linux Kernel 3.11. With this, the GPU and memory clocks adjust dynamically based on load, useful for saving power. This feature is not enabled by default, at least in Ubuntu 13.10 (it will probably be enabled by default in Ubuntu 14.04) so here’s how to enable it.

3 Reasons Why Ubuntu Smartphone Will Succeed

Tue, 2014-01-28 16:08

Here we want to explain why we think Ubuntu smartphone(s) will change the game for good.

Canonical’s long road to the Ubuntu Phone

Fri, 2014-01-03 17:32

Before long, we had a new generation of netbooks, mobile internet devices and tablets. The mobile industry was hotting up and the hardware industry was exploring new avenues; it became obvious to Canonical that in order for Ubuntu to stay competitive, it needed to harness this new revolution, not merely dig its heels into the desktop and refuse to acknowledge change.

=== Ubuntu GNOME Will Still Run On X.Org For A While ===

Michael Larabel of Phoronix informs us that Ubuntu GNOME will continue
to ship an X.Org Server based environment for 14.04 LTS and most
likely for 14.10 too. Michael quotes the following from Ubuntu GNOME’s
Google+ page: “At some point in the distant future we will probably
switch to Wayland, but right now its not even close to being ready.”

=== Ubuntu Touch OS wins its first smartphone partner ===

Stephen Shankland of CNET informs us that Mark Shuttleworth has
confirmed that Ubuntu Touch has its first official smartphone partner,
though the partner remains unnamed. Four other brands are also in line
to become partners in the near future. With carrier support from
nearly all the big names, Ubuntu Touch is positioned to make a big
splash when the first phones begin shipping next year.

=== Confirmed: Canonical Is Forking GNOME Control Center And GNOME
Settings Daemon For Ubuntu 14.04 ===

Andrew of WebUpd8 informs us that Robert Ancell has confirmed
Canonical will be forking GNOME Control Center (commonly known as
System Settings) and GNOME Settings Daemon for the upcoming 14.04
release of Ubuntu. Recently Ubuntu GNOME has been blocked from
shipping the latest releases due to the need to have them heavily
patched for Ubuntu, as a result from now on Ubuntu GNOME will be able
to do so without conflicts.

http://www.webupd8.org/2013/12/confirmed-canonical-is-forking-gnome.html

OMG! Ubuntu also covers this news in the next article.

=== Ubuntu Confirm GNOME Control Centre Fork for 14.04 ===

Joey-Elijah Sneddon of OMG! Ubuntu! writes that Ubuntu has confirmed
they will be forking the GNOME Control Center for the upcoming 14.04
release. Through the 13.10 release, they’ve been shipping a heavily
patched version and have opted to simply fork it rather than
continuing to apply updates and patches. He notes that on the plus
side, it will no longer conflict with the vanilla version being
shipped with Ubuntu GNOME.
