Heureka, Fedora 38 Beta with Kernel 6.2.x supports RTL8852BE Wifi and Bluetooth out of the box 🙂 The manual work like described in Kubuntu 22.04 on Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G3 ACL is not necessry anymore.
The Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G3 ACL is a well equipped device with a Ryzen 7 CPU and decent built-quality. The keyboard has a backlight feature, but not the quality and key drop a typical ThinkPad keyboard has – and the typical ThinkPad Trackpoint is missing 🙁 Installing Linux (Kubuntu 22.04, Kernel 5.15) works well if there would not be the Realtek RTL8852BE WiFi with integrated Bluetooth.Kubuntu 22.04 on Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G3 ACL weiterlesen
Some apartments and houses sometimes have a terrible placement of light switches. Therefore, drilling and placing new cables do not seem worth it. For example, a different solution is to set up a smart home system to control smart lights.Smart Lightning weiterlesen
Altough the HP Elitebook 745 G2 (AMD Hardware) has some age, it’s a nice working-tool with good built-quality and mine works fine after 6 years intense use. BUT: HP reports the most recent BIOS versioned 1.48 – the BIOS internal update tool reports no update available based on V 1.44
Just for fun I gave Fedora and Gnome with version 34 a try again 🙂 One of the first things to do as a geoscientist has been the installation of QGIS… because of the not always up-to-date repo versions (and COPR), I selected the Flatpak-version… but got 3.16 LTS alltough I expected it to be 3.18.2 :-/ What I did not know, Flathub encapsulates 2 versions in one “Repo”.
Today Microsoft released the first Dev-Version of its Edge Browser for Linux.
Let’s have a first look on it within Kubuntu 20.04
Data science and Jupyter notebook can sometimes get exhausting. What about debugging, version control, code reviewing and so on. Coming from a Software Engineering background it‘s like losing 50% of the stuff you were used to.
To mitigate those problems I recently partially switched from Python to R with many improvements. For local Python coding, JetBrains PyCharm is my tool of choice and Jupyter notebooks for remote coding. With R it is RStudio Desktop and for remote, there is RStudio Server, which is almost like the desktop version within a browser. This allows one to develop and analyze data from any device with a browser.
Using Citrix Workspace App (v1912) for Linux (with KDE Plasma 5.16.5) recently showed a problem with Fullscreen-mode – the Panel (Taskbar) was not recognied any more by Citrix-Apps and MSTSC in Fullscreen had a hidden Windows-Taskbar/Start-Menu.
On two different laptops (with Core i5/intel graphics) I had the problem of a not booting Ubuntu 19.10 with just showing the ubuntu-logo and not going further.
- Why Arch Linux? @ iSticktoit.net
- Setup I3 and SWAY (coming soon)
If you want to install Arch, everyone tells you that you should read the installation guide. The second thing you may hear is that you should read the installation guide and that you have to follow it step by step. That also has a short name RTFM – Read The Fucking Manual – and stick to it – no joke.
Make backups before installing Arch Linux. 😉
