EndeavorOS (“Cassini”): Fresh system images landed safely with Xfce 4.18

Published

on

The Dutch EndeavorOS, a Linux distribution based on Arch Linux, claims the official successor to the then very popular Antergos and once again delivers new system images with updated software packages for fresh installation media. The new foundation is the Linux kernel 6.0.

Updated base system with Xfce 4.18 and Mesa 22.3.1

The approximately 1.9 GB basic system of EndeavorOS “Cassini” comes with the newly completely overhauled free desktop Xfce 4.18 and is based on the current system kernel Linux 6.0.12-arch1-1, which also comes from the substructure of Arch Linux. Gamers can look forward in particular to new graphics drivers and the current graphics stack Mesa 22.3.1 with RDNA 3 support and Vulkan 1.3.

In addition to the Xfce desktop, there is the current Gnome 43, KDE Plasma 5.26, MATE 1.26, LXQt 1.2.0, Cinnamon 5.6 – known from Linux Mint -, Budgie 10.6 and the desktop from China’s most widely used distribution Deepin, the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE) , and the particularly resource-saving window manager i3 to choose from.

Package updates
  • Like Arch Linux, EndeavorOS comes as a rolling release “out of the box” with the latest software packages, runtime environments and libraries.
    • Applications such as the open-source browser Mozilla Firefox 108.0 and the email client Thunderbird 102.6 are up to date.
    • The same applies to runtime environments and libraries such as Mesa 3D and the Python programming language.

The new installation media include, among other things, an upgrade of the graphical installation routine Calamares, which was upgraded from version 3.2.60 to the latest pre-release 3.3.0 Alpha 3.

The new resource-saving window manager “WORM”, which was developed by the EndeavorOS community and is maintained accordingly, is still in its infancy. The window managers WORM and Sway 1.7 (GitHub) get their own community edition. The same applies to the particularly light working environments Openbox, Qtile and BSPWM.

Barcelona offers 200,000 euros to the project that reduces the accident rate of motorcycles

Published

on

Barcelona City Council has launched a challenge for companies, startups, universities and innovation centers to present urban solutions that have as objective reduce motorcycle-related accidents. The chosen projects, which will be applied in the city, are part of the Barcelona Innova Lab Mobility initiative that promotes pilot tests to improve mobility.

Barcelona is one of the European cities with a greater presence of motorcycles and mopeds which represent 33% of the total census of vehicles, and motorcycle drivers account for 86% of the seriously injured, according to the balance of road accidents for the first half of 2022. With the aim of reducing accidents and increasing road safety in the city, these entities have launched this initiative to find and apply innovative solutions on the streets of the city, with the collaboration of the Tomorrow.Mobility show organized by Fira and the EIT Urban Mobility (European Union initiative).

The challenge, launched internationally, counts with an economic endowment of 200,000 euros, which will correspond to a maximum of 80% of the total amount of the winning solutions. The projects can be aimed at resolving the accident rate from behavioral innovation, that is, with solutions related to driving habits, and from technological innovation.

The execution time of the selected proposals is 18 months, of which the pilot phase must be a minimum of six. The proposals must be applicable in a real environment in the short term and must define, in this sense, its deployment space. In addition, it must achieve quantifiable results in relation to the safety of motorcyclists and third parties, which are lasting over time. Its innovative and differential component will also be valued both in the methodologies and resources used and in its execution.

This call is aimed at companies, startups, universities, research centers, technology centers, associations and foundations that have until next March 1 to present their projects. A committee of experts will assess the technical quality of the works presented and will choose the winning solutions that could be applied in Barcelona during that same year. The projects will have international projection with their participation in the next edition of Tomorrow.Mobility, which will be held next November together with the Smart City Expo World Congress at Fira de Barcelona.

Microsoft Teams integrates into Elgato Stream Deck

Published

on

The Elgato Stream Deck is a very interesting peripheral that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time, and that allows you to create different shortcuts and functions that will be associated to each of the available buttons. It allows you to create different usage profiles, and we can switch between them in a very simple way.

For example, we can assign to a button that directly opens a web page, to run a specific application, to perform a specific action and we can also set specific commands and download completely free applications. It is a very interesting solution, especially for professionals who are dedicated to content creation and streaming.

The point is that the Redmond giant has released an official plugin that allows you to integrate an Elgato Stream Deck device with Microsoft Teams. This plugin was announced by the American company earlier this week, but it was officially launched yesterday. The installation process is quite simple, but we can find more information in the official Microsoft forums.

Once installed, we can use the Elgato Stream Deck to access shortcuts and specific functions that will improve our user experience with Microsoft Teams. Thus, for example, we can blur the background in a video call by pressing a button, and we can also assign other specific functions such as raising and lowering our hand, muting ourselves, recording, and even to show live reactions during meetings.

This new plugin enhances the value of the Elgato Stream Deck, making it a very interesting solution for those who work remotely and have to participate in frequent video calls and events. Obviously it is still an excellent option for content creators and streaming professionals as well. I remind you that it is available in different versions, and that the standard MK.2 model with 15 buttons is priced at €149.99.
