The problem listed in this article is only temporary so I originally didn't intend on writing about it but I realized it was an opportunity to further explain why people should be using the "apt" command instead of all the other apt-related tools.

"apt" command makes it very easy to install local deb files.

For those who want to learn more about the "apt" command, [Simplify Command-Line Package Management with APT instead of apt-get](http://www.howtogeek.com/234583/simplify-command-line-package-management-with-apt-instead-of-apt-get/)
Ubuntu 16.04 is the first version to include the new replacement software app, GNOME Software–and it already has a show-stopping bug. Currently, in Ubuntu 16.04, it is not possible to install third-party applications using the Software app.

Just for fun.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “Hey, wouldn’t it be awesome to add really annoying sound to my Linux application launchers?” Yeah, this happened to me the other day. But rather than keep this to myself, I decided to show you how to do the add fun sound effects to application launches and even demonstrate+ Read More

This is a preview showing the progress made to date on the new Makulu-Desktop Project. This is currently alpha version 1.021. This is going to be really awesome in a few months when Majority of the Todo list is done. Still a long way to go, but what a great start !

+amine kamel well that's not accurate because Debian Stable and Debian Sid can actually be used at the same time. I think your approaching it an a rather simplistic way. Debian Sid as a server is silly but as a desktop is essentially the same thing as running Arch.

I know this is not Linux specific but I think it is still something people would like to be linked to. :)
 
Here is my latest article where I try to help solve an incredibly annoying problem with using YouTube.
Does this sound familiar? You start to watch a video on YouTube, and want to pause it. So you press the spacebar on your keyboard, but rather than pause the video, you randomly jump down the page instead.

Linux is a community environment. Whether it’s the professionals over at RedHat, Canonical, and Suse or the guys who got together and decided to create Hannah Montana Linux, behind every project there’s usually a community. My first attempt at Linux came in the desert in Iraq. We were building a router lab and I had+ Read More

I don’t think I’ve been more excited for a new release of Ubuntu since I first started using #Linux
Ubuntu hasn’t had the best reputation among Linux users over the past few years–with some even going so far as to call it “boring”. If you’ve been hesitant to try it out, then hold on to your seats–Ubuntu 16.04 “Xenial Xerus” is not only an exciting release, but one that has the potential to be a game changer for the Linux ecosystem.

Today John writes: I’m really liking the new Ubuntu-MATE 16.04 and strongly considering switching over to it after the official LTS comes out. I’m currently using LinuxMint-MATE and really liked it, but the look of Ubuntu-MATE takes me back to my early Ubuntu days. How do I explain to those in my Linux SIG why+ Read More

This is a explanation and demonstration video of the "apt" command which allows you to simplify command-line based package management on Debian/Ubuntu systems.

You don't need to remember the different tools to run for searching, installing, removing, etc. because it can now be done in "apt".

Before anyone poo-poos this, read the ENTIRE article first. 😉 One of the most common things we face as Linux enthusiasts is the “vacuum of despair” that comes about from switching family to Linux without fully thinking through backups and restoration. It usually starts with the dreaded phone call that they tried to “do some+ Read More
