    Episode 14: Home VPN Server, JACK Audio, DigitalOcean Sponsorship, AppImageLauncher Dev Feedback, PinePhone Testing, FreeCAD, KDE Plasma 5.18, PC Cooling, ProtonCalendar

    Welcome back to DLN Xtend. In this 14th episode, Eric talks about setting up a VPN to connect to his home network as well as more experimentation with JACK audio. Nate discusses transferring his domain to a new registrar and the upcoming move to self hosting his website.


    That leads nicely into our announcement this week of DigitalOcean becoming a network-wide sponsor of DLN. All Destination Linux Network shows, including ours, will be taking part. We discuss their introductory offer and how and why we are happy customers.


    In Listener Feedback this week, Leviticus suggests we use video for the podcast and we hear from TheAssasin, developer of AppImageLauncher, who answers our questions from episode 11.


    The DLN community has been discussing the PinePhone Braveheart edition over on the Discourse forum, testing UBPorts and other distros as well as some software. Many have shared their experiences. Did you buy a PinePhone? How has it been? Come share your thoughts in this thread.


    A recent Software Spotlight on Destination Linux covered FreeCAD, a free and open-source general-purpose parametric 3D CAD application. It just so happens Nate is a long time user of FreeCAD and gives us some reasons why he is such a fan.


    KDE's Plasma desktop version 5.18 was recently released and we talk about what's new and why we like Plasma in general.


    Hardware Addicts, a new DLN podcast covering all things hardware, discussed the various cooling solutions and the virtues of each. We discuss our own experiences having both recently built AMD workstations. There is a new segment lead by Wendy Hill covering photography. This week she dives into the different types of cameras (i.e. Point and Shoot, DSLR) and explains what each does.


    And finally, Michael Tunnell covers many. many things on each episode of This Week in Linux. He recently brought up ProtonCalendar from ProtonMail. This fills a gap we've previously had with using ProtonMail as a true alternative to other mail services that include this functionality.


    That's all for this week. Be sure to stop by DLN's Discourse, Telegram, Mumble and Discord servers to continue the discussion. More information about this show and other Destination Linux Network shows and creators (like Eric and Nate for example) is available at destinationlinux.network.

    DLN recently held our second game night.


    Destination Linux discussed Linux User Groups (LUGs) and we discuss what it takes to get started.


    Destination Linux also interviewed Hayden Barnes of Canonical's WSL team. The DL crew asked some tough questions and we go into how Hayden seems to have swayed their opinions on Microsoft's recent "love" for Linux.


    And last for this week, Jason Evangehlo of Linux for Everyone, Jason interviewed Dustin Krysak of Ubuntu Budgie and we discuss the nature for FOSS and how we can be appreciative and give back.

    In the weekly update segment, Eric talks about testing and making videos about the preview releases of Manjaro's upcoming 19.0 release as well as KDE Plasma 5.18 Beta on Kubuntu. Nate tells us about using Windscribe VPN, managing Kontact, and a hardware fail with a vintage power supply.


    We get some listener feedback from GOK via the Destination Linux Discourse forum about SAP and SUSE Linux.


    Our community focus this week touches on a topic also discussed in the DLN forum about domain registrars.


    On Linux for Everyone this week, Jason Evangehlo interviewed Philip Mueller of Manjaro and we discuss how smaller hardware manufacturers like Tuxedo Computers are filling a void left by their larger competitors.


    Destination Linux brought up the topic of Linus Torvalds' response to a question about the Linux kernel and ZFS support. We had a few differing thoughts on the subject.


    Finally, this week marks the first episode of Destination Linux Network's newest show, Hardware Addicts.

    Episode 11: Kdenlive, AppImageLauncher, openSUSE Tumbleweed, Linux Elitism, KDE Plasma SDK, 2020 Linux Hopes and Dreams, New DLN Podcast

    Episode 11: Kdenlive, AppImageLauncher, openSUSE Tumbleweed, Linux Elitism, KDE Plasma SDK, 2020 Linux Hopes and Dreams, New DLN Podcast

    This week Nate talks about his admiration for Kdenlive and even using it to editing audio. Who knew? Eric gets back to making YouTube videos, in particular one on AppImageLauncher.


    The community segment is on a topic Eric started about the best dIstro and DE combo for workstations. He ended up giving openSUSE Tumbleweed a try much to Nate's delight. We discuss the magic of Tumbleweed snapshots.


    As a reminder in case you missed it, last week we had Wendy Hill as a guest to tell us how she uses darktable as a professional photographer. Absolutely worth a listen if you have any interest in photography.


    Destination Linux brought up the issue of elitism in Linux this week and we give a few thoughts on both sides of the argument.


    The subject of backing up settings and deploying them on KDE Plasma came up this week on Destination Linux. Nate explains how this works by installing an SDK.


    We talk about our Linux "hopes and dreams" for 2020. Eric hopes for good Linux options for mobile devices, especially on tablets and Nate wishes that more companies develop professional software for Linux.


    There is a special Destination Linux Network announcement this week in the form of a new podcast. Hardware Addicts will focus on hardware that works with Linux, from single board computers to high-end AMD systems. Look for the first episode to land in the coming week.


    That's all for this week. Be sure to stop by DLN's Discourse, Telegram, Mumble and Discord servers to continue the discussion. More information about this show and other Destination Linux Network shows and creators (like Eric and Nate for example) is available at destinationlinux.network.

    Episode 10: Quick Tiling in KDE Plasma, Linux in the Kitchen, Giving Back to OUR Community (Donating to Open Source), DasGeek's YouTube Channel Passes 10,000 Subscribers, Update on FreeGeek Charity Fund Raising, Kdenlive 19.12, Wendy Hill on darktable

    Episode 10: Quick Tiling in KDE Plasma, Linux in the Kitchen, Giving Back to OUR Community (Donating to Open Source), DasGeek's YouTube Channel Passes 10,000 Subscribers, Update on FreeGeek Charity Fund Raising, Kdenlive 19.12, Wendy Hill on darktable

    In this edition, Nate talks about setting up quick tiling on KDE's Plasma desktop environment and also using Linux in the kitchen for recipes and entertainment.


    This week's Community Focus covers a Discourse forum post entitled Giving Back to OUR Community which discusses donating to open source projects as well as content creators. We cover commercial use of open source and how if companies that benefit financially would contribute back to the projects they use those projects would likely make enough revenue to cover their costs and then some. Mentioned in this discussion is the recent dilemma that the Pods Framework find themselves after their main financial contributor chose to not continue their support.


    DasGeek's YouTube Channel reaches a milestone and passes 10,000 subscribers. Ryan does a great job reviewing hardware but, more importantly, following up and making more videos about the same hardware over time so you can find out what it's like to use it over time. That's often not the case with many YouTube tech channels.


    Destination Linux provided an update on the FreeGeek fund raising effort. The goal was $3,000 and, thanks to Zeb's 24 stream, we are well on our way. He raised over $1,500 so again, congratulations to him and the entire Destination Linux Network community for such generosity.


    Destination Linux covered the release of Kdenlive 19.12. Nate has been using it to edit his videos and gives feedback.


    And finally, darktable version 3.0.0 has been released. darktable is an open source photography workflow application. We are not photographers so we wanted to get a power user's take. Luckily, friend of DLN Wendy Hill was available. Wendy has appeared as a guest host on Destination Linux and is a professional photographer specializing in business-to-business photography including food, product, and location image creation. She uses Linux for her business and darktable is one of the tools she uses for her images. We discuss what darktable is, how she uses it and what's interesting about this latest release.


    That's all for this week. Be sure to stop by DLN's Discourse, Telegram, Mumble and Discord servers to continue the discussion. More information about this show and other Destination Linux Network shows and creators (like Eric and Nate for example) is available at destinationlinux.network.

    Episode 9: Nate's Lighting Project, EndeavourOS, Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix, What Makes Distros Different, Home Media Servers, 2019 Discoveries, Feren OS, Zebedee Gaming 24 Hour Live Stream

    Episode 9: Nate's Lighting Project, EndeavourOS, Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix, What Makes Distros Different, Home Media Servers, 2019 Discoveries, Feren OS, Zebedee Gaming 24 Hour Live Stream

    We've been busy with the holidays and took a short break. We're back with a new episode to start 2020. In this edition, we cover what we've done these past few weeks. Nate tells us more about his holiday lighting project and Eric talks about EndeavourOS, Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix and that leads us into a discussion on how Linux distributions differentiate themselves.


    We received some listener feedback from Anthony Lavado of the Jellyfin project which leads to a discussion on home media servers like Jellyfin, Plex and Emby.


    Jason Evangelho's account of his 12 Months of Discovery on Linux for Everyone over the past two episodes prompted us to look back at our 2019 experience to see what discoveries of our own we've made.


    Destination Linux covered the Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix releases and pondered the merit of an Ubuntu Cinnamon flavor. There was a lot of talk about Linux Mint already filling that space but I disagree.


    This Week in Linux covered the release of Feren OS which was recently made available. It's a fascinating example of what someone can achieve in the open source world. We discuss the merits of Feren OS and lovingly poke a bit of fun at its creator.


    Lastly, our friend Zeb undertook a monumental 24 live stream on his Zebedee Gaming YouTube channel. He was raising money for DLN's first charity collaboration with FreeGeek. The total came out to an impressive $1,500. Congratulations to Zeb and FreeGeek. Certainly a great way to end the year!


    That's all for this week. Be sure to stop by DLN's Discourse, Telegram, Mumble and Discord servers to continue the discussion. More information about this show and other Destination Linux Network shows and creators is available at destinationlinux.network.
