linux mint still uses ubuntu's repositories and eglibc 2.19-0ubuntu6.7 (the patch for CVE-2015-7547) was in the update manager for mint at the same time as it was avaliable for ubuntu 14.04.
Clem already stated it was a breach through wordpress, it does not matter which os their web server was running, they most likely would still have been breached.

This is exactly how I felt and still feel about it after switching full time to linux a year and a half ago. So much fun to play with all the new things.
There is just endless stuff to do and tinker with. I now have linux on my gaming desktop, my laptop, GalliumOS my chromebook, ubuntu touch on my tablet, ubuntu server on my NUC (home server). Along with 2 raspberry pis doing stuff.. soon to spin up a ESXi box hosting FreeNAS and other VMs for various junk.
I don't have a single Windows install anywhere now... linux is so much fun haha.

As usual, Ubuntu users can use my GHC ppa to conveniently install binary packages specifically built for the currently non-EOL'ed Ubuntu releases
Installing is simply a matter of
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:hvr/ghc
sudo apt update
sudo apt install ghc-8.2.1-prof ghc-8.2.1-htmldocs cabal-install-2.0
and add /opt/ghc/bin to your $PATH, and you should be ready to go. Please refer to the PPA description for additional information on how to manage multiple GHC versions installed side-by-side.
No. Anyone with issues in any version of Ubuntu are encouraged to report bugs on Launchpad and GNOME upstream.
While we've given the subreddit a couple of days to be excited about the new release, we are once again enforcing rule 2: complaining about issues on reddit is a waste of time. Writing good bug reports upstream gets issues resolved.
Or just use the trie-based Levenshtein searcher that libcolumbus uses. It requires no extra storage, you can specify custom pairwise substitution errors, do fuzzy prefix matching, search for any error value (not just 2 as in the linked document) and so on.
We’re crazy excited to announce that Mad Max is getting revved to utilise Vulkan, the Khronos Group’s next-generation graphics API.
To join the public Beta:
In your Steam library, right click on Mad Max.
From the drop-down menu, select Properties. The Properties window will appear.
Select the Betas tab.
Enter "livelongandprosper" into the text box, then select Check Code. A message will appear to confirm that you now have access to vulkan_beta.
From the drop-down menu above the text box, select vulkan_beta.
Close the Properties window.
If Mad Max is already installed, an update will begin downloading automatically. If Mad Max is not installed, highlight Mad Max in your Steam library, then select Install and follow the instructions.
The following driver versions are required to participate in the Beta:
Requires NVIDIA driver version 375.26 or later.
Requires 16.50 or 16.60. 16.60 has a known regression which causes the game to appear darker than it should. A driver fix for this is in progress. We’re aware of some rare full system hangs when using GPU-PRO.
Requires latest Mesa 17.1-dev (as of this post) compiled with Vulkan support. On Ubuntu this can be installed using the Padoka ppa found at https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-di…/+archive/ubuntu/mesa. INTEL ANV requires Broadwell or Skylake, but Haswell is currently unsupported.
Please make sure Steam is up to date (built March 22 2017 or later). This Beta does not currently support SteamOS.
To pass us your feedback, email with a support report generated from the options window. Please provide as much detail as possible.

The Application depends on whether you are a programmer/normal user/student/..... The applications I found worth installing are as follows
But now it seems the applications availbale in GNU/Linux are much more than that in Windows. You could get lots of application if you are using Ubuntu from either Software Center or Ubuntu PPA. How to install from PPA is described in the PPA Link Here. Now it seems that installing application in Ubuntu is much easier if you have an internet connection.

>I'm genuinely curious as to how they fit all that stuff on there
Compression and SquashFS.
> if they have to pick and choose which parts (drivers and such) to fit on to a CD, which is why some things work in one version but don't in the next.
No, they don't skimp on drivers for obvious reasons. You're experiencing run-of-the-mill regressions. The constraints of the CD do influence application and library choices, however.
> Would moving up to a DVD be better?
Maybe. The stated plan is eventually to ditch the LiveCD concept altogether and push loopmounted devices (eg Wubi) and LiveUSBs as the primary methods of installation. However, they'll probably only bump up install size by 100MB~ with the format change, as Mark Shuttleworth says limiting disk size is good discipline against bloat.

You could also install Vim from a reputable PPA. That specific one never failed me back in my Ubuntu days.
if that were the the average Ubuntu user will still be suffering a 50% loss of speed as Ubuntu do not update the Nvidia drivers....
They keep the same version, with known bugs in and lacking various improvements .... all in the name of 'stability' - seriously the Nvidia driver is one package that should be rolling release.
I will be fine as I have create my own packages....

Yeah! How dare he play around with open source CFD solvers!
Seriously though. Open source numerical solvers for engineering computations have been a thing since at least 2009 (probably as early as 2002). Most engineers have taken one or two fluid dynamics courses and that's enough to start fiddling around with CFD.
Canonical's target user group is not the same as Valve's.
SteamOS is firmly targeted at users that will benefit from Vulkan in the near term. It's in Canonical's best interest to keep the older, more proven, drivers in multiverse in order to provide the most stable experience for their paying (mostly business/government) customers.
Newer stuff is always available to enthusiasts by adding their graphics-drivers ppa (https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa). The separation is good, because it ensures "average" users don't accidentally install beta drivers. The Vulkan ppa you linked is a temporary out-of-cycle workaround aimed solely at bleeding-edge devs/testers and will be obsolete as soon as Vukan makes it into the next nVidia release.
Proposed patch for CVE-2014-7169 here:
I am building bash updates for Ubuntu containing the proposed fix here and will publish them once the fix has been made official:

I'm going to wipe/reinstall 16.04 next weekend so I'll update this post after I do.
After wiping and installing 16.04 from scratch I am having better luck. My WiFi is behaving more normally, it's not as good as my phone but it's not failed on sleep/resume so far. For bluetooth the real solution here worked on 16.10 and I found it on Friday before going back to 16.04 it is blueman. So far so good. Next step is try to out Dell's display link hub
hehe. you're joking, right?
1) "root authority enabled" is not a valid command. you can't just make up some word combinations and hope they will work.
2) "root" is a user and not a command.
3) root-system-bin is a software package that has nothing to do with the task you are trying to accomplish.
EDIT: ok, maybe I should be more helpful. :) So, an explanation:
If you want to access a cd with a modern Linux distribution (like Ubuntu) you don't need to use the console to do so. I don't know which distribution you are using, but there is probably a litte icon somewhere on your desktop that lets you open media like CDs, DVDs or USB Sticks. If you open the cd that way it will be automatically mounted for you.
sudo is the command to do things as user "root". Just like you did when installing that software-package you didn't need. So if you really wanted to mount your cd from the console it would be something like
sudo mount -t iso9660 -o /dev/cdrom /cdrom
but i'd advise against it and recommed reading some tutorials about the console first. There are lots available, the first one i just googled for you is this one

> repair those issues or else it's not going to happen as interest seems to be nearly non-existent.
Hi! Thanks for bringing attention to my call for help! I wouldn't say interest is non-existent; lack of hardware is a problem, but Pierre from Valve provided everything we need to fix it, which is why I asked him to file those bugs. Enough people in Ubuntu preordered the controller that I don't expect it to be an issue when it's available for the general public. It might not be zero-day support for people who preordered but we will try. Remember we're also in the middle of releasing wily so it's not like we've got nothing else to do.
> Chances are, lots of activity is happening in the background for these two issues and they will be resolved soon for the Steam Controller on Ubuntu.
We do everything publicly so what you see there is what is happening. In an awesome twist of fate, a bunch of us will be in Bellevue next week sprinting for work, and if worst comes to worst we'll fix it over beers with the Valve guys in the bar, however if someone wants to be a hero and submit a patch now, that would be most awesome. For these controller fixes in particular mdeslaur will be putting them in his PPA over the next few days.
Around the same time Steam Machines ship development for the next LTS will open, and then we'll likely want to push all this stuff from PPAs into Debian/Ubuntu proper, the xpad fixes should land in the upstream kernel, and all that should really put us in a nice spot for gaming.
The majority of packages are identical to Debian's. There are a great number of Ubuntu-specific packages containing Ubuntu-specific software (i.e. Ubuntu Software Center, Unity, etc.), meta-packages like ubuntu-desktop (which requires all the packages the desktop CD would install), and probably some with defaults for GNOME and such.
Ubuntu maintains its own kernel and a default configuration, as every distro does.
The RC system uses a mixture of System V (legacy) and upstart (which is their own project, inspired by Apple's start-up scripts), but I don't think the scripts themselves deviate from Debian.
There isn't one single resource that tells you how Ubuntu's packages differ from upstream, but if you download the source packages and look in debian/patches, you'll see.
And there's nothing that Ubuntu does that no other distro does.
What I think makes Ubuntu Ubuntu is the community, and the amount of money Canonical throws at it. As far as I can tell most open source projects don't have any kind of code of conduct, which requires a certain level of civility from its contributors - and the culture is very welcoming. And of course having lots of money thrown at it means there's a lot of potential for innovation.
*Ubuntu package, if anyone needs it: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/artful/amd64/intel-microcode/3.20170511.1
It's not backported to any older releases yet. It will work fine on Zesty and probably older releases dating back quite a while since it's just a shell script, some config files, and the firmware itself.
After installing run:
sudo su -
echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/microcode/reload
dmesg | grep microcode
should output something like [5094843.149652] microcode: updated to revision 0xba, date = 2017-04-09

Edit: instead of dmesg | grep microcode you might need to use journalctl -b -k | grep "microcode"
dmesg | grep microcode
journalctl -b -k | grep "microcode"
I wouldn't use a browser who's last release was in 2015
Edit: I should mention that I used Midori a lot a few years back and I really liked it. It would be great if the development would pick back up. But in its current state it just can't be recommended.
AMD cards earn a lot of performance by using the latest Mesa drivers.
You can add the Padoka PPA to your system, a quite popular repository which is based on the latest Mesa-Dev and is stable for everyday use imo.
Instructions on how to add it can be found on it's page:
As long your program is available as a package on your distro's official repositories, then yes, you can do this, usually without any extra step.
If your program is not available as a package on your distro's official repositories, you may want to check community's repositories (under Debian/Ubuntu add-apt-repository as root followed by the ppa to add, e.g. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender; sudo apt update to add this repository to your source list, and then it's as simple as doing sudo apt install somepackage). This is generally easier than the below solution, but this being managed by users, don't blindly trust everything. One major advantage is obviously that you can upgrade those packages along with the others.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender; sudo apt update
sudo apt install somepackage
If your program isn't available at all on community ppas, you usually have to go install it yourself, optionally following the developer's guide if some special step is required (you sometimes have to compile that program yourself in manual installs though).
You should ditch the amdgpu-pro driver and use Mesa instead. There should be instructions on how to uninstall the pro driver from the amd drivers site or documentation thay came with the driver package - follow them and uninstall it.
Next, add the padoka stable ppa: https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa
Then do an apt update/ upgrade and your Mesa stack will be updated.
If you're on Ubuntu, it is also highly beneficial to install the hwe or hwe-edge kernel (4.10 and 4.13, respectively) as that includes updates to the amdgpu driver which will boost performance significantly: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack
Here's the copy paste, not including uninstall of the pro driver:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/pkppa
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-16.04-edge xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:paulo-miguel-dias/pkppa
sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install --install-recommends linux-generic-hwe-16.04-edge xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04
This is all assuming Ubuntu 16.04, but should work for any 16.04 derivitive or flavor
When it comes to AMD cards, the most important thing is how up-to-date your Mesa driver is. I would want Mesa 17.0 at the minimum.
Ubuntu 17.04 currently has Mesa 17, but for older versions of Ubuntu you'll want to use the Swat-X Mesa PPA.
In my opinion, rolling distros like Solus, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and Antergos tend to work best with AMD cards, as they have the latest kernels and mesa package by default, and will upgrade those automatically as newer versions become available.
I personally use Solus Linux, as it essentially combines the user-friendliness of Ubuntu with the stable rolling nature of openSUSE Tumbleweed (i.e, it doesn't break like Antergos and Manjaro can). It also features the awesome Steam-Integration package, which ensures Steam works perfectly, so it's a particularly good distro for gamers.
With Solus, you would not need to configure anything, it'll 'just work' right outta the box. :)
Also, I would recommend never using the closed source AMDGPU-Pro drivers from AMD's website (which only work for CentOS and Ubuntu), as they are only intended for enterprise/business users. AMD themselves recommend gamers use the open-source Mesa driver, as it performs better and is far more stable in games.
Anyway, hope that helps. ^_^
What do you mean open source drivers don't support 3D? Using them since January with 7770 on various games, including Sanctum 2.
Open source drivers are much better than fglrx, but you need latest development version. You can get it from:
Check your actual CPU usage. This could just be a placebo/misunderstanding/Arch users jumping at the first sight of a "tweak" as usual.
It has been the case for a while now that about:gpu would show "Hardware accelerated decode: Enabled" if you enable "Ignore GPU blacklist" in about:flags, but it's just a cosmetic bit (the codepath for VAAPI is hardcoded to no unless you flip it compile-time). See: https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromium/src/+/master/docs/linux_hw_video_decode.md
So unless you compiled Chromium with that flag on you're probably just imagining things. For Ubuntu users, this PPA has hardware accel decode enabled: https://launchpad.net/~saiarcot895/+archive/ubuntu/chromium-dev

Currently I have targets for trusty (14.04) and precise (12.04). Let me know if you need a different target.
No need to worry, all of the repos and such are still intact. You can find a list of all the packages here:
To install the ppa, open a terminal and type / paste in the following code:
* sudo apt-add-repository ppa:versable/elementary-update
* sudo apt-get update
To install packages from there, from the terminal run the following command:
* sudo apt-get install <insert package name here>
Things that are important to note:
* elementary-tweaks ~ the elementary tweaks system plug
* indicator-synapse ~ a versatile launcher similar to spotlight in OSX
* wingpanel-slim ~ a unobtrusive replacement for wingpanel
just to name a few. Hope this helps!
I say test it out first. Right now, I am typing from my macbook running Linux. While I didn't like OSX, bootcamp makes it really easy to install other operating systems side-by-side. If you go with Ubuntu, check out the Mactel Repository. It includes tons of drivers specific to your macbook.
If you decide to try this out (I would suggest doing this before you spend any money) and you need any help, feel free to pm me.
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/an-explanation-of-what-mesa-is-and-what-graphics-cards-use-it.9244 explains the driver situation.
For gaming the default mesa version on Mint+Debian is lagging behind. Newer releases are constantly improving performance and fixing errors. Latest stable releases are available on this PPA (Mint): https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa/ or for the very latest unstable mesa here: https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/mesa
AMD drivers have improved very aggressively in very short time, but some games are still hit and miss (graphical errors, crashes).
I used to use synapse as a launcher. It does that as well. It's also supposed to do other cool stuff that I couldn't get to work. I believe synapse is distro independent.

As far as I can tell, it's a rebranding of desktop Ubuntu that will use snaps, apparently Mir, and share a code base with the phones and tablets. It's in development now. I think that's why Canonical stopped working on Ubuntu Touch a month ago, to focus on getting its successor ready.
If you look through the bug reports, some of the bugs are from Ubuntu Touch, like the " File Manager crashes when Network is selected" issue.
I don't know when this will be ready, it may be months, but I am so hyped for it.
EDIT: I should note that I've heard a few people talk about Ubuntu Personal, so I don't think it's a secret or anything. That's why I first looked it up, because I heard about it on some Linux or tech podcast.
They didn't drop support, they shifted their support to the open source drivers which have received major upgrades from where they were in the last version of Mint. If you take a look at benchmarks Mesa 12 performs roughly on par with AMD's new proprietary 'Pro' driver and game compatibility is similarly in good shape with OpenGL 4.3 supported.
Mint is generally a poor choice for use with the open drivers as they've frequently let them fall far behind other distributions. Ubuntu 16.04 ships with Mesa 11.2 with OpenGL 4.1 support. You can get 12 and 4.3 support with the Yasi PPA: https://launchpad.net/~joe-yasi/+archive/ubuntu/xorg-xenial
You can, by adding a private software repository to your sources. This one seems to be safe, as its the developers of Xubuntu itself. Just follow the instructions here:
Elementary frequently contributes patches and collaborates upstream with other projects whenever possible. All development takes place on their Launchpad page, available for all to see/fork whenever they want. They are the very definition of an open source project.
Implying a distinction between "for profit" and "open source" as you did in the title of your post is dishonest (EDIT: especially when the FSF actively encourages selling free software), and your post is misleading at best.

He's using Ubuntu's GTK+ patches to achieve this, not upstream GTK+... Which is one of the primary reasons for Unity's upkeep cost, and likely to be discontinued pretty soon.
EDIT: Or maybe they won't be discontinued. If not, it's good news.
I've grabbed ELW73-9Q00K-HC83K thanks, i'll let you know later if i have any issues.

First of all, they are not developing a new browser. The whole "browser" part, the thing that shows webpages, is just Chromium (the open source core of Google Chrome).
What they have made is a nice interface around Chromium that blends in very well with Unity8. They will make it so it converges seamless from phone to tablet to desktop. They cannot use default Chromium or Firefox because that interface will look horrible on unity8/Ubuntu Touch. Developing their own Chromium wrapper also enables them to make adjustments (like hiding 'we have an android app' banners) and make it fly on the phone.
Since Unity8 is highly dependent on webapps, the browser is actually considered a part of the OS. The browser has to be perfect and integrated extremely well into the OS. That's why they aren't using default Chromium or Firefox...
Second: The browser is not ready for desktop usage yet. They are working hard on this, they are working hard on making all applications scale seamless from phone to tablet to desktop... It will take some time to get the UX right, but the result will be awesome!
Ubuntu is already self-hosting its code and repositories, so obviously relying on an external website as Github would be a major technological backwards step. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to do such a thing.
Now, i think the question is more about git (the underlying software) than Github (the website).
In that aspect, i agree that git (the underlying software) support for https://launchpad.net/ would be great since more people seem to be familiar with it.
Seeing that it's open-source and distributed by reputable sites like CTAN (since a long time, apparently) I'd say you have nothing to worry about.

I expect the Maps app to be fixed--it just may take several weeks. It's a lot simpler to just apply whatever fix is needed at that point than to try to remove it from a stable Ubuntu release then re-add it later.

It's already been fixed by the community. There's nothing stopping users from installing it themselves. For whatever reason canonical has chosen not to integrate it upstream.
Unfortunately most of the themes for this greeter are either a) buggy and weird or b) completely horrible looking. I'm using the Bevel theme here. Well, actually I'm using my fork of the bevel theme because there were a few nasty bugs and the code was a bit of a mess.
It's pretty easy to spot what things are Elementary-designed and what things just haven't been replaced yet. A lot of these issues are known and being worked, but the Elementary team doesn't have infinite man power/hours to get everything done. Remember, this is a work of love made by volunteers. Things must be prioritized. Luckily for you, the panel is getting some significant work done for Elementary's next release.
Development occurs at the Elementary launchpad page (https://launchpad.net/elementary). You should register there and start filing bugs (which is very simple to do). I have and it's resulted in a number of changes and bug fixes for issues that were affecting me.
If something specific really chaps your hide and you're willing to put your money where your mouth is, you can file a bug report and put a bounty on it to incentivize its correction.
Ubuntu did a similar thing a while back with their hundred papercuts project. I'm not sure if it's a rolling thing, or what, but it's still going on, supposedly.

Use ubuntu's software center to install steam. If you run into problems with some games you can try updating your video card drivers here.
> For Skylake processors with HT: Run grep -E 'model|stepping' /proc/cpuinfo | sort -u. If your model is 78 or 94 and stepping is 3, install intel-microcode. If not, disable HT in the UEFI and wait for UEFI updates.
I'm in this boat. Found version 3.20170511.1 for Ubuntu on Launchpad. It will work fine on Zesty and probably older releases dating back quite a while since it's just a shell script, some config files, and the firmware itself.
Ubuntu will only make such upgrades when you upgrade to a new release. They won't do a major upgrade on GCC within a release.
You could install from a PPA like https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-toolchain-r/+archive/ubuntu/test but that could cause problems.
> Zander clearly hasn't tested it.
Does that mean you know of any issues? Please do tell! I asked you before, if you know of any issues and ideally even how to reproduce an issue, please report that on our github task tracker.
I'd love to know how you got to the conclusion it hasn't been tested. Not sure why you refer to me as there are many people testing it.
You should try it too. Running code is so much better in convincing something works than code.
Everyone on rBtc; please try out nightly build; https://launchpad.net/~bitcoinclassic/+archive/ubuntu/nightly it has all the goodness of xthin and many other things.
Users of Ubuntu, Linux Mint and other Ubuntu-based distributions can use this PPA to get around the fact Canonical don't put the newer releases into package repositories.
Hi! I'm one of the Ubuntu Core Apps developers and can tell you with 100% certainty that they were showing off these applications. But that's also one of the project's written selling points--so it's a good thing! I really hope that both projects can work together productively. I love KDE and I hope they choose to be an inclusive and open partner.
I would recommend Pipelight over netflix-desktop, as you can use your own browser, and it works just as well, as long as you use a user-agent spoofer like UAControl (for Firefox) to make netflix.com think you're not using Linux. Works great from my experience, and I've tried it on a wide variety of hardware. It even worked on an old Pentium 4 machine, though the framerate was a little unsteady.
On a semi-related note, it never ceases to amaze me how Silverlight run via WINE works better than native Flash Player. I can't wait for Flash video to go the way of RealPlayer.
To throw in my two cents, I don't have a single icon on my desktop (I'm running archlinux with raw openbox so I don't have a DE to handle them) as I run everything from the terminal or synapse.
When I use windows I tend to have most important application shortcuts in the taskbar (7+) or a rocketdock on the left screen-edge next most important stuff in rocketdock(7+) or start-menu, then start-menu (7+) before anything gets to the desktop. No file sits on my desktop more than 10 minutes (anything not temporary goes straight into documents).
check out gwork office its pretty new but it works well.
here is the install command
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tombeckmann/ppa; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install gwoffice
OK, here's my attempt in Python / Linux. It's shit :-)
It uses python-uinput and sudo to send key presses?! Too tired to look into it right now.
Anyway, find a sequence that works, I couldn't. I don't understand this game!
PS: There's a hurdle 50m in...
Yes we are, and we have a small but very active development team! We are currently working on a score of applications, a desktop environment and a few nice libraries. All these things we are working on are mostly going to be included in our next elementary OS release, which is codenamed Luna and is going to be based on Ubuntu 12.04. It will include Pantheon, the DE we have cooking, and our own set of standard apps, most of which we have developed ourselves.
Like I said, our dev team is small and always looking for help, so please do visit us at #elementary-dev on freenode, and check out our launchpad pages!
You can also download it for Ubuntu by installing the nightly PPA.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa
sudo apt-get install firefox-trunk
Afterwards, it can be run with:
Since the plan is to completely drop classic in 11.10, a team of dedicated volunteers has put together UGR (Ubuntu Gnome Remix), so this may develop into a full-fledged Ubuntu spin with Kubuntu, Xubuntu and Lubuntu.
If you prefer, the Gnome 3 team has their own PPA. I am pretty sure if you upgrade with this it will break unity, but that doesn't seem like a big consideration for your requirements.
I have been running Fedora 15 beta with Gnome 3. I must confess that Gnome 3 is much more thoroughly thought out than Unity. There are still plenty of bugs and some things that just don't work (I can't add a printer, empathy rarely starts up correctly, extensions and themes are sparse at this time), but Gnome 3 really looks to me like it is shaping up to beat the pants of of Unity. I have heard Shuttleworth is stubborn, so I assume Ubuntu will stick with Unity for a few versions yet before they cave and upgrade to Gnome 3, but time will tell. Maybe Unity will turn out to be something other than mediocre.
openjdk-8-jre is not available on official repositories for your outdated (yet still supported) version of what I assume is Xubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr).
But you should still be able to get one version lesser openjdk-7-jre.
I suggest either sticking with version 7 of java (unless you really need 8, then the solution is certainly not simple), or updating your whole distro to a more recent version (16.04 should be the latest LTS).
Ubuntu (and family) has "if it ain't break, don't fix it" philosophy, so you won't get any new software versions, because new features might introduce unexpected and undesired side effects. You only get security updates.
u/sergio-br2 does the recipes/packaging for the libretro PPAs and was responsible for getting those packages pushed into the Debian repos when possible. He might be willing to lend a hand.
He also maintains this PPA with several non-libretro emulators, if you'd be into including RPCS3 in it, otherwise, spinning up a new dedicated PPA is pretty easy, too.
If you want, you can add the PPA instead. That way, you'll receive updates to IDEA when they're released and Mint's update tool will include them like any other updates on the system. Everything should automatically be installed where it needs to go.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mmk2410/intellij-idea-community
sudo apt update
sudo apt install intellij-idea-community
PPAs are mini third party repositories for certain packages. They're nice to use to ensure you receive updates and don't have to manually install .deb packages downloaded from websites every other week. A lot of popular packages have a PPA, just always make sure to check the dates of the latest updates to make sure the ppa hasn't been abandoned.
Dolphin uses CMake for build configuration, not ./configure. Check out the README.md.
It's not feasible to offer prebuilt binaries for every Linux distribution available. Usually the community steps up and takes that role:

get the proprietary drivers here https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

you want nvidia-settings and either nvidia-355 or nvidia-358 or nvidia-364. Try 364 first. if you get any problems then try the others
The nvidia driver that comes with latest Ubuntu (nvidia-340) doesn't support GTX 970, you have to either:
Add <em>xorg-edgers ppa</em>. With this you can install the latest nvidia driver using the package manager and its kept up to date with system updates. This is usually the preferred method. The downside is that some packages might be incompatible with the ppa (not usually a problem) and you should remember to remove the ppa before upgrading to 15.10.
Install nvidia driver manually, first downloading it from http://nvidia.com. The downside is that you have to manually update the driver every time new version arrives. Also kernel updates can break compatibility.
To install nvidia drivers with xorg-edgers, open up terminal and write this:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install nvidia-352

The people who maintain the Ubuntu 'repository' or 'archive' are called 'archive admins' which has been the case (nearly) forever (i.e. since before 2006 when this group was created in launchpad).
"This team is responsible for administrative and maintenance tasks for the Ubuntu package archive, including processing of new packages, handling requests for package syncs from external repositories, migration of packages between components, and other administrative matters."
As for a deployable package, one option is Docker: https://medium.com/@abrkn/running-the-bitcoin-core-daemon-as-a-docker-container-7d290affa56b
If you're running Ubuntu you can install via the PPA: https://launchpad.net/~bitcoin/+archive/ubuntu/bitcoin
I have a guide that I wrote about setting up nodes here: https://medium.com/@lopp/how-to-set-up-a-bitcoin-full-node-2dd1c09763d3
Note that the blockchain bootstrap torrent will become obsolete as of the Bitcoin Core 0.10 release - headers-first syncing is actually faster than bootstrapping.
Maybe not natively, but Pipelight runs Silverlight and thus Netflix just fine.
EDIT: I also use Chrome UA Spoofer to be "Windows Firefox 15" on netflix.com. It's handier to have it be automatic than manually switching back and forth all the time in the Dev Tools.
A: Yes, you can run whatever you want. I use xchat, kcachegrind, and claws-mail regularly in E17.
A: E17 is the desktop, EFL is the toolkit. You can write apps using EFL and run them in whatever you like. You can also write modules for E17 to enhance its functionality in almost any way you like.

sna will not be activated in this PPA for a while, it requires an ABI breaking xserver patch to work properly. If you wish to test it out you can activate https://launchpad.net/~sarvatt/+archive/intel-sna at the same time as this PPA and avoid using chrome/chromium.
LO has its own GUI toolkit called VCL, is supposed to be OS-agnostic and relies on plugins to integrate it with an specific OS. You need two things:
Install those two packages and choose breeze or breeze-dark as your icon style. You'll get something similar to this:
The steps depends on what distro you're using but if you're using a distro based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS i would recommend you to add the libreoffice-fresh PPA, just be careful that X.0.0 versions usually has a higher probability of having critical bugs if you're unlucky.
Uh, a week and a half is not "quite old". Just use v4.11-rc8.
Linux 4.11 was released on Sunday and Monday was a holiday in many countries. You could have given them more than one day before you start complaining!
The Ubuntu Kernel team was busy doing other updates yesterday (Tuesday).
Unless you're running a fairly old Thinkpad or a tablet convertible, most things just work out of box.
The only Thinkpad-specific packages for semi-modern models are:
I wrote up a guide that covers some of the Linux customization and suggested installs (for an X230t in this case).
Most of the suggested installs for linux are standard stuff -- tlp, powertop, thermald, etc.
We're currently waiting for binary builds to finish; https://launchpad.net/~hvr/+archive/ubuntu/ghc already has final builds of GHC 8.0.2 specifically configured for Ubuntu 12.04/14.04/16.04/16.10 so Travis jobs can already start using/migrating to 8.0.2; I still need to build packages for Debian 8 & Debian 9. There's also other people contributing binary packages/builds still being in progress.

Definitely "Steamize" Ubuntu. This Nvidia graphics PPA makes drivers super easy:
That's really all you need. The Steam Controller "just works". I don't have any problems running games under Compiz. The biggest problems are just the Linux game library, and some poorly optimized ports. Rocket League is working great tho.
> A gui to manage how grub boots.
I'm not sure what exactly you want to achieve but I use Grub Customizer for some changes, e.g. to modify the default system to boot.
The version in the Kesselgulasch PPA has precision up to 64-bit float.
I used this with single float on some large negative scans. Supposedly working in float improves performance somewhat.
You have Mesa 10.1.3.
You can add ppa repository (https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa) for fresh mesa drivers(Intel driver is opensource and mesa includes him), but OpenGL in mesa driver currently is 3.3 version. Highter version is in work.

Once in a while, you still have to drop down to editing files but most of the time, its great.

Don't do this.
The other system is going to be an exact copy of yours (same user, same files, same password). This is only for backup.

If you aren't against using third-party PPAs, check out the Oibaf PPA. I have an R9 270 and it works just fine with Mesa 10.2. Performance isn't quite as good as Catalyst but it's close, and it's much more stable. AFAIK Oibaf is kept much more up to date than Xorg-edgers aswell.
Can you substantiate that?
Gnome claims that it first released 3.0 in April 2011; Canonical claims that it first released Unity in June 2010; almost a year beforehand.
Wikipedia claims that Unity has been based on Gnome since before Gnome 3 was released.
