On this episode of This Week in Linux, we’ve got a couple birthdays to celebrate with one being the Linux kernel itself and Valve’s Steam Play (Proton) project. IBM announced some great news regarding their open source efforts (POWER), UBports announced OTA-10 of Ubuntu Touch, the Pinebook Pro public preorders have arrived, DELL announced their new Linux powered XPS Laptop, and NVidia has some new Beta Drivers that seem very promising. Then we’ll check out some App News with a new AMD GPU Settings tool (CoreCtrl), an APK Downloader for Linux (Racoon), and a slick way to create your own Electron desktop apps (Nativefier). Later in the show, we’ve got some new distro releases from Netrunner and EasyOS. All that and much more on Your Weekly Source for Linux GNews!

  1. Hey everyone, sorry for the delay in releasing this episode! This show takes around 20 hours to make each week and sometimes with weeks like this it takes even more. I hope to better this coming week but I have been working on a lot of new stuff that I can't wait to let you all know about but unfortunately that stuff isnt ready yet so it will have to wait. Just know that the delays for the episodes lately will hopefully be worth it pretty soon. 😀

  2. F-Droid has this app called Yalp, as well as a forked version, that lets you download apk's and I'm pretty sure even the installers and runtimes for Google Play services themselves through opengapps without having Google Play and it's obtrusive, bloated crap on your phone, and even lets you log in to your Google account to access your purchased apps.

  3. Raptor processors are the future to make these manufacturer companies not to install Trojan horses in our computers even if it is their intellectual property rights to own the source code.

  4. You can also count me in as a fan-boy for Pine64. 🙂
    My order for the Pinebook Pro is currently in the process. I have to be patient, as the order is planned to be shipped around the end of October 2019. Can't wait!

  6. NetRunner Rolling is a very attractive Arch-based distro. Installed and ran very nicely on an old Lenovo G780 laptop. Thanks for the info and "double-click" reigns!

  7. Single Click is the superior ergonomic choice. It's also frustrating to see people double clicking links on the web when they don't need to 🙁

  8. I can for sure say that Steam proton was the best thing happened to Linux in the last years, especially for gamers. Gone the days were i had to boot to windows to play Street fighter IV or Yakuza… Now, just install and run, and it gets better with every update.
    Great show, thanks!

  9. I would say that the "birthday" would be the public release, and not the inception of the project

    Because a human is made via conception… but the parents don't release the collaboration project of DNA to the public until 9 months of development and it can exist as a standalone system…. sometimes it gets released early, and there are some bugs… but the hospital usually tries to handle that.

  10. About Proton:
    Going from 11 to 6000 sounds great but in reality when ProtonDB was just created it has 3500 working games. Maybe not in Day 1 but I saw ProtonDB in a first week of it's live.

  11. single click is just better (:
    Ok, I maybe am a litte bit not objective here because I grew up with single click, but hey
    I always want to destroy something when singleclick doesn't work

  12. Wow, I didn't know that I can sign in with my Steam account in ProtonDB! That changes a lot, because it makes it so much more fun to explore, as I have a huuuuge games list in Steam (over 1k, no bad games). Thanks for pointing that out. Edit: Oh okay, I can't use it, as it requires my profile to be public. I don't want that. Still nice feature to have.
