Linux distributions tend to use two different types of release cycles: standard releases and rolling releases. Some people swear by rolling releases to have the latest software, while others like standard releases for being more stable and tested.

Hey guys need some help here please, I have ubuntu 14.04 LTS along with windows 8 "dual boot" everything was working like charm till today when I tried to open NFTS partition I received this message "Unable to access Error mounting /dev/sda3 at /media/momen/Partition 2: Command-line `mount -t "ntfs" -o "uhelper=udisks2,nodev,nosuid,uid=1000,gid=1000,dmask=0077,fmask=0177" "/dev/sda3" "/media/momen/Partition 2"' exited with non-zero exit status 14: The disk contains an unclean file system (0, 0).
Metadata kept in Windows cache, refused to mount.
Failed to mount '/dev/sda3': Operation not permitted
The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown
Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting), or mount the volume
read-only with the 'ro' mount option.
so I was wondering if you could help me solve this issue.

I think you didn't close your windows 8 properly.  Go to windows and close it with restart. Don't use switch off . You restart. Next go to ubuntu and it should work as always. At least it worked when it happened to me.

Passwords can be reset or bypassed on every operating system. On Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, you can gain access to a computer’s unencrypted files after resetting the password — the password doesn’t actually prevent access to your files.

Don't you still need the root password in Linux?

Mailnag 1.0 released!
It's been a while since the last Mailnag release and 
quite a lot has changed since then. Here are some highlights:
Until now, Mailnag was meant to be a mail checker daemon for 
GNOME 3 exclusively. As of this release, Mailnag supports many 
more desktop environments - it should work out of the box in 
Ubuntu (Unity), Linux Mint (Cinnamon), Elementary (Pantheon) 
and of course GNOME 3 (GNOME-Shell). In fact, it should even 
be possible to run the Mailnag daemon on headless systems 
(without desktop).
Another big improvement is Mailnag's new plugin system. 
Mailnag 1.0 comes with a set of desktop-independent default 
plugins for visual/sound notifications, user script execution,
spam filtering etc and can be extended with additional plugins 
Desktop Integration
Additionally to the new Mailnag 1.0 core, I also released 
separate desktop-integration plugins for Ubuntu and GNOME 3.
These plugins extend Mailnag with desktop-specific indicator 
support and make Mailnag integrate seamlessly in those desktop's
respective notification systems.
Remote Control
The new DBus plugin allows other apps to remote control the 
Mailnag daemon and to receive signals on various events 
(e.g. mail arrival).
Full Changelog:
* Mailnag is desktop-independent now (was GNOME3-only)
* Added plugin system to allow easy extensibility
* Cut down the core daemon functionality to mail checking only 
  and moved everything else to plugins
* Released GNOME 3/Ubuntu Unity extension/plugin for a tighter 
  desktop integration
* Added account assistants for popular email providers like Gmail
* Added DBUS service (for remote control/integration in other apps)
* Redesigned and simplified config UI
* Added propper logging (log messages are sent to stdout and the 
  system log now)
* Heavy code cleanup & refactoring
* Reduced disk write access, other performance improvements
* Fixes for various major and minor bugs
* New icon by Reda Lazri

The fileformat of the config file has changed. 
It's highly recommended to rename/backup your 
current config file (~/.config/mailnag/mailnag.cfg).


Ubuntu (Mailnag core, Unity plugin + GNOME-Shell extension):

Arch Linux (Mailnag core + GNOME-Shell extension):

Debian (Mailnag core):
Mailnag 1.0 is available in Debian unstable and testing.

Fedora (Mailnag core):
Mailnag 1.0 is available in Fedora Rawhide.

Installation notes:

I'd like to thank all people who helped to get this release out 
the door, especially +Vincent Cheng & +Thorsten Leemhuis 
for distro packaging, +Reda Lazri for icon and flyer art and 
+alt haser for translations!

Hi, i bought new laptop and i wanna install graphical drivers (ATI radeon hd 8750M). After i create and install deb package, i should configure my X server using aticonfig -configure, but the result says "aticonfig no supported adapters detected". I tried to google it, but no success. could anyone please help me?

unfortunately neither of this solution works. still getting the same result. but when i tried install driver with the ./amd*.run, the driver said my adapter is not supported. that sounds strange to me, because on the amd website they say it is supported

how to install vlc on ubuntu on ubuntu 14.04

He should not left that error message alone. I highly recommend to fix the issue and install vlc from the main Ubuntu repositories. Of course it is due to a experienced user know that issue will come back later with more problems.

Microsoft™ sky begins to fall!

First a simple question: "How is stock value being calculated?"."Law of supply and demand"? Nope, plain wrong!

Correct answer: When s.b. is offering his share at e.g. $100 and another person buys, the value of all remaining shares then is set to $100. When, within the same time slot, another one sells his share at $50 and somebody buys, the value of all remaining shares then is set to the average value: $75.

Manipulation is possible, when two, huge hedge fonds or institutional holders begin to trade, bounce large amounts of shares at unrealistic high prices between each other, steadily increasing. Mostly, to keep this undiscovered by #SEC, they use a complex construct of companies, investors, banks.

This way, SEC or other governmental institutions can hardly detect, wether the stock value is manipulated or not.

Now have a look at Microsoft™, SYMANTEC™, CISCO™ institutional holders:

Some names are appearing over and over again! Now you know, why Microsoft™ does not close security bugs. Have a look at SYMANTEC major shareholders. They're the same one's, "optimizing profits".

Read this about a mysterious company sky rocketing:

Now you know, why the shares of major U.S. IT companies are still increasing, despite Snowden / N.S.A. revelations, ban of CISCO/Microsoft in China and soon in Europe (see: ), tremendous success of Linux in HPC (98% market share) and cloud OS (Facebook, Twitter, Amazon #AWS, Google,... are exclusively using it!), and decreasing market share:

Have a look at at Amazon notebook bestsellers: Google Chromebooks™, which also run Debian/UBUNTU™ GNU/Linux! 20-30% market share on all notebooks.

#Microsoft is heavy manipulating statistics, claiming their IIS being relevant and #Azure cloud computing increasing, see GoDaddy manipulation:

In fact, almost nobody outside U.S.A. uses MS cloud, because of N.S.A. backdoors and N.S.A. even being allowed to spy U.S. companies (and hosted) servers outside U.S. territory:

Linux, b.t.w., is totally dominating mobile market: 2 billion (not million!) Androids sold, one billion in daily use!

ARM™, in 2013, has licensed 13 billion ARM processors, 1/3 of them being CORTEX faster ones, almost exclusively running Linux! Who is INTEL™ again? AMD™?

Microsoft™ is a nobody, still claiming relevance!

Have fun!

It doesn't matter how big you are. If you make bad business decisions you still die, might take a little longer if you're loaded, just look at Nokia.
I'm sure M$ will die slowly with the corporate desktop computer as they haven't been relevant on years.

Quick question about Ubuntu:
My friends who have Ubuntu have told me that to get both Ubuntu and Windows you would need to make a backup.  If I were to only use Ubuntu, would I still have to make a backup?
Mauricio Mora Meza's profile photoNick Germaine's profile photo
I never left/store personal data inside the OS partition. I always save amd store it in a dedicated partition for that. Then I can make what I want when I want in the rest of the HDD and never ever touch or resize or what ever wirh the Store/Data partition.

You might not be ready to accept Linux as your desktop yet, but you can still use it to save your Windows PC—whether you need to reset passwords, recover deleted files, or scan for viruses, here’s how to do it.

[Wine Anti-Aliasing Issue]

Hi everyone! Wine's anti-aliasing has been running perfectly for me for two years until today when teamviewer started to misbehave.  X server seems to crash when I finish any teamviewer session. And that messed up with Wine Anti-aliasing too.

Any help would be highly appreciated.
