 (Nautilus and Nemo file managers)

We, desktop users, search our files with file managers. Search feature is so important we need it everyday. This short article compares the two famous file managers, Nautilus from GNOME and Nemo from Cinnamon, in their own search features. I compare things like Sorting feature, Advanced options, Bookmark, and several more, some with GIF animations. I will use versions of both that are available in Ubuntu 19.04 repository to present this comparison. Enjoy!

(Devuan 2.0 desktop LiveCD with XFCE user interface)

Devuan GNU+Linux is the first free software operating system to promote Init Freedom campaign. Devuan is a modified Debian GNU/Linux without systemd init system. Devuan Desktop comes with XFCE and bunch of free applications such as LibreOffice and GIMP. Current Devuan release is 2.0 codenamed "Ascii" which is released in 2018. Devuan supports both PC 32-bit and 64-bit, as well as embedded computers like Raspberry Pi, Nokia 900, and so on. Devuan makes everything more interesting as it provides an SDK to enable programmers create new GNU/Linux distro and Refracta Installer to enable casual users create a remaster or a custom LiveCD. To make you even more interested, thanks to Devuan, now we see new distros like Etertics and Maemo Leste, both as desktop and mobile OSes, developed without systemd. This intro article explains in brief what is Devuan, where to get it, the init system used, the desktop, and several more things. Finally, I hope you will give Devuan a try and like it.

A friend from a community gave me an idea after last article to remove XFCE from Mint XFCE "Tessa". Thanks to him, I searched, and I did a removal that works on that Mint which already have additional KDE and GNOME installed. The XFCE components (no less than 50) are all gone, including Thunar File Manager and XFCE4 Session, resulting in a feeling like removing just one application. This tutorial is intended for users who want to remove the desktop environment and ready for the risk. Happy working!

(Ubuntu "Eoan" 19.10 development version running peacefully in May)

Ubuntu 19.10 codenamed "Eoan" is supposed to be released next October this year. But in May we already can download the ISO image. It continues the previous names of Artful, Bionic, Cosmic, and Disco. And further we can also see the contents of that ISO without even downloading nor running it on our computer by just reading the corresponding manifest file. This short article is for new testers who want to see several information including the desktop, programs versions, and more. This way, it will be interesting for everybody to see and start test Eoan daily build ISO and further to help report issues to the developers. Finally, welcome for Eoan and happy testing for you!

 (Mint 19.1 with GNOME 3 user interface)

This tutorial introduces how to install KDE Plasma and GNOME desktop environments on Mint 19.1 "Tessa". As you may know, Mint since 2018 abandoned their KDE Edition (the last Mint KDE Edition is 18.3), and since the very beginning never released GNOME edition. Many of us perhaps prefer to have KDE or GNOME on their Mint system so this is tutorial you can use. I use Mint XFCE Edition 19.1 to practice this and I recommend you to start with this edition as well. Finally, happy installing and have a nice day!

(Ubuntu 19.04 "Disco Dingo" with Unity desktop)

Good news for us that Unity7 desktop environment works very well on Ubuntu 19.04. We can install it right now without any third-party repository. I find that this desktop works pretty faster than the built-in GNOME 3.32 desktop one, at least on my laptop. I include many screenshots to reveal how good Unity7 works on 19.04 below including the HUD, the Login Screen, and the System Tray. I hope this works for you too! Happy working!
