 (Qt Creator works perfectly on Ubuntu 19.10)




Qt Software Development Kit (Qt SDK) includes Qt Creator IDE & Qt Framework Libraries with Full Code Examples among other things. On Ubuntu 19.10, if you want to develop GUI applications with Qt, you need to install that Qt SDK first with a C++ compiler. Installing it on 19.10 is slightly different to different to 18.04 as this involves configuring GNU GCC C++ compiler on 19.10. After setup, you will have a ready, complete Qt SDK with Creator, Designer, Linguist, and Assistant works with G++ compiler. I hope this will be useful for you all. Happy hacking!

For people who want to be free from Google, there is a good news that now exist 3 providers of ethical alternatives namely Framasoft.org, Disroot.org, and PrivacyTools.io. They provide all the services gratis so ethical services will be accessible for everybody. By ethical service I meant network service that based on free software and with commitment to user privacy as privacy-security community recommends it. By all-in-one here I meant as close as possible to Google in number of services they provide. This can't be avoided to introduces you to new names to you like Searx, Nextcloud, Gitea, and such free software that are now popular in our community. I hope this review reaches as many audiens as possible to make people aware about existence of privacy services. Now let's go!

(Searx private search engine web page)

Do you know Searx? Visit www.searx.me and you can search the whole internet better than Google. Searx's slogan is "A privacy-respecting, hackable search engine". It is better because it is more complete, secure, and respecting your privacy. First, Searx gives you search results from different search engines, including Google and Yahoo!, you can choose. Second, it is a free software that is recommended by a lof of people in security-privacy communities. Third, it searches anonymously and privately for you without recording your user data. More than that, unlike Google, Searx operates cleanly without ads nor online trackers against you. I divided this article into 3 parts as usual to make it easier for everybody to read. By writing this, I believe Searx is worthy to be introduced to all internet users. Let's go!
