Grive2: Grive Fork With Google Drive REST API And Partial Sync Support [PPA]: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/05/grive2-grive-fork-with-google-drive.html

Grive was an unofficial, open source command line Linux client for Google Drive. I say "was" because the tool no longer works due to Google changing it's API recently and Grive not being maintained any more (there are no commits on its GitHub page since May, 2013).

To get Grive up and running again, Vitaliy Filippov forked it and named his fork "Grive2". The fork supports the new Google Drive REST API and it also includes a new feature: partial (directory) sync, along with bug fixes.

Cinnamon 2.6 reached feature-freeze on the 15th of May and was recently given 2.6 labels. As we're still bug-fixing it and it's all very fresh out of the oven it wasn't officially released/announced yet. Early builds were added to the “Romeo” section of the LMDE 2 Betsy and Linux Mint 17.1 ...

How To Hide Files And Folders In Your File Manager Without Renaming Them [Quick Tip]: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/05/how-to-hide-files-and-folders-in-your.html

An easy way of hiding files and folders (prevent them from showing up in the file manager only) without renaming them by adding a dot at the beginning of the filename.

No. I created the .hidden FILE and wrote the names of the FOLDERS and FILES i want to hide in the .hidden FILE. I restarted Dolphin. The files I expect to be hidden are still visible.

For me this was the only thing missing from Ubuntu MATE - I was using Plank/Docky. There are a couple of things not quite right yet, but I'll live with it as I expect they'll be fixed soon. (Not all launched applications appear on it, and if I have two instances of an application I can't use the scroll wheel to switch between them). If you do add enhancements, the defunct Avant Window Navigator (AVN) has some nice touches, but please don't turn it into the flashy Cairo-Dock which always crashed for me.

Fedy 4.0 was released recently, bringing a completely rewritten, fully native GTK3 user interface as well as Fedora 22 (to be released tomorrow) support.

Fedy (previously called Fedora Utils) is a tool which lets you install various packages which are not available in the official Fedora repositories, such as Adobe Flash, Oracle Java, Atom, Brackets and many others, as well as tweaks, like better font rendering, junk cleanup and so on.

On Demand System Tray For Ubuntu: `Indicator Systemtray Unity`: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/05/on-demand-system-tray-for-ubuntu.html

If you still need a system tray in Ubuntu (Unity), you don't need the patched Unity any more. Instead, you can simply install `Indicator Systemtray Unity`, a new AppIndicator which adds a system tray to the Unity panel.

`Indicator Systemtray Unity` doesn't show up on the panel until you launch an application which comes with a tray icon. Even then, the systray is displayed on demand (on left/middle-click) and there are two modes available [...].

it looks similar to the tray app in windows, except for in the top bar; which makes so much more sense on laptops. I might have to try unity again, except for my most powerful x86 machine is only dual-core 64-bit(w/ 4gb ddr2 ram and a spindle disk); and unity usually chokes on it.

Hm looks nice but the android app is more then twice the size of LastPass or other good known password managers. With no password database build yet it is already 50Mb and there is no way you can move it to your SD-card :( With some more of apps like these your phone memory is full in no time.

mps-youtube Migrates To YouTube API v3, Gets Ubuntu Sound Menu Support: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/05/mps-youtube-migrates-to-youtube-api-v3.html

mps-youtube 0.2.4 was released today and with this version, the app was migrated to YouTube API v3. This is an important change because the old v2 API was shut down recently so previous mps-youtube versions no longer work.

Another important change in this release is the addition of MPRIS v2 support, which means that mps-youtube can now make use of Ubuntu's Sound Menu, GNOME Shell Media Player Indicator extension and so on.

mps-youtube is a command line YouTube audio player which supports both local and YouTube playlists (with built-in YouTube search).

By default, the app plays only the audio (it only downloads the audio stream, great for those with limited data plans) however, you can enable video playback from its options and in this case, mpv or mplayer is used to play the videos (other players might work, but only mpv and mplayer are officially supported).
