We asked this question on the blog yesterday and have had an insane reaction — over 300 comments in 12 hours!

If you haven't added your wistful Linux want on the post do feel free to do so here in the community. 
If you could magically, instantly, create any sort of app for the Linux desktop right now, what would it be?

Small PSA on post quality of late

There's been an insane amount of spam slipping through the net recently.

A polite reminder that this community is not a billboard for articles hawking diet pills, "lolz" videos, linking to blogs that do little more than repost other sites' content with no credit, etc.

As I don't have he inclination or patience to check out every link.

Two points:

1. This group is a community not just a broadcast channel. It seems like most people don't get this. Please don't use this group as yet-another-place to "hit and run" a link to whatever blog post you've just written. Try to engender a debate, run polls, share tips and tricks, ask for help, interact with each other.

If you really must share a link to an article you've written PLEASE do more than paste the link: write a comment and frame the link with context, and make sure it's filled under the correct category. As harsh as it may seem I will ban those accounts — hint, hint betanews — that continue to flout this. You create work for me by not abiding by the rules. 100s of once-great communities have lost their value by being little more than a spam-attacked notice board.

2. Any post automatically flagged as spam and clearly off-topic / click hawking will be removed, and the poster banned.

It's simply too much effort for too little reward to manually check.

As it seems to be the same 5/6 accounts pushing the same ol' crud this won't have a big impact on most of us, and should solve the spam issue and clean up the noise.

Etcher is an open-source and cross platform application, simplifies everything to do with creating bootable USB drives or even Micro SD Cards.

We wrote about this app a few months back. It's really handy!

File under crazy!

I don't use Windows 10 often enough to try this, but it's always easy to forget how much we Linux users take for granted the ease to which we can swap themes, icons packs, reshape our desktop. 
If you want to make Windows 10 look more like Ubuntu then check out Maverick, a Windows 10 visual style inspired by the Ubuntu Ambiance theme.

Hey, can someone help me?

If I use any of these NVidia drivers the HDMI out audio disappears.

How can I fix that?

In the first episode, we brought on fellow-cool-kid Michael Hall (community manager for +Canonical and +Ubuntu) to talk about the Ubuntu tablet experience. I’ve had the BQ 10-inch tablet for a little while and I’ve got some thoughts I wanted to bounce off him.
After some “going back and forth”, Bryan and I have decided it was high time we did a proper show together. Here are the details you need to know. Yes, it’s actually happening! New show, baby! New weekly show! I’ve teamed up with the ever-adorable +Matt Hartley to create a video-only show we call “Lunduke+ Read More

Hello guys,

As a Linux user, I always miss of a tool that facilitates the installation of themes and icons, because It's boring to do the process manually.

I do not know if this tool already exists, but I've created a application simple to use, to install themes and icons.

those interested: https://github.com/jcgomes/theme-installer

This repository has the link to download the application, and a small user guide with screenshot.

Best regards!
Juliano

I think that mycroft desktop is only working properly under Gnome 3.x ... it seems like it is in "alpha" for KDE with Unity support due "soon"

Thanks for the response. Yeah, I was worrying about such an answer. :-(
I've tried many things, XSane, but none of them works properly. Thanks again.

An official Snap of +VLC appears in the wild!
 
Road testing the latest daily build of VLC just got a whole heap easier on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS — a snap, you might say.

A very popular and very weird 2D RPG is now on #Linux
Thanks to the masses of people for letting me know. Undertale, the 2D RPG where you don't have to destroy anyone is now available for SteamOS and Linux.

I'm pretty good on the whole "2D" thing on Linux. Great for phones...occasionally great for gaming...but these titles get us nowhere. Until Valve makes a few AAA "SteamOS only titles" this is just another game among thousands in the Steam store that will drop off the planet after a few months.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

+Rene Rosenberg ah, so the post is actually about marp? I saw that on your screenshot, but you mentioned deckset, that threw me off a bit.

Marp does indeed look nice, will give it a try!
