  • KDE Plasma 5.22 is out now with a focus on 'stability and usability' and more Wayland

    Stability and usability are the keys to the new KDE Plasma 5.22 release that's officially available today.

    I am always in awe of what Plasma can do. It's probably one of the most versatile Linux desktop environments available. It has options for everything, options within options and it manages to somehow look good while doing everything you could possibly want it to.

    Plasma 5.22 works even better with Wayland as of this release, which is becoming increasingly important. KDE say it now works with variable refresh rate/FreeSync, marking off another big piece from the list, especially with different refresh rates possible across different screens.

KDE Plasma 5.22 Arrives with Miscellany of Usability Improvement

  • KDE Plasma 5.22 Arrives with Miscellany of Usability Improvements

    KDE Plasma 5.22 has been released, following a successful bout of beta testing last month.

    This uplift of the free, open source desktop environment improves ‘stability and usability across the board’, according to KDE devs.

    And that’s not an understatement.

    Refactored code and copious bug fixes converge to offer better performance, better responsiveness, and an overall better experience. Add in generous helpings of user interface tweaks (like the flashy adaptive panel transparency) and a reel of excellent end-user refinements (like the new System Settings speed dial page showing the most commonly-accessed settings) and Plasma 5.22 really shines bright.

  • KDE Plasma 5.22 Released With Much Better Wayland Support, Usability Enhancements

    KDE's big Plasma 5.22 desktop release is now available with maturing its Wayland support continuing to be one of the big ongoing focuses for the project.

    KDE Plasma 5.22 brings much better Wayland support -- "hugely improved" is how the 5.22 beta release phrased it. There is now support for variable rate refresh (VRR) / Adaptive-Sync on Wayland, vertical/horizontal maximization now working with KWin Wayland, global menu applet support under Wayland, support for activities, and a lot of other general improvements and fixes so the overall Wayland support is much more polished and nearly at par to the X.Org Server support.

  • Plasma 5.22

    Plasma 5.22 is here, and it is more reliable and stable than ever. By cleaning up and refactoring code in the background, the Plasma desktop gives you greater responsiveness and performance, helping you become even more productive without hiccups or surprises. Enjoy a smoother experience with KDE’s Plasma 5.22 desktop.

    Plasma 5.22 has become more pleasurable to use through improvements to the design and greater smoothness and consistency in transparencies, blurs, icons, and animations. Moving things to accessible locations, offering hints and visual cues, and creating new settings allows you to customize your work environment to make it fit perfectly to your needs. Following the true KDE spirit, the push for a more stable and attractive desktop does not mean you have to renounce control over how you want it to look or behave. Plasma 5.22, as always, packs all the flexibility and tools for customization you have come to expect and love, and some more to boot.

    As usual, I am providing packages via my OBS builds. If you have used my packages till now, then you only need to change the plasma521 line to read plasma522. Just for your convenience, if you want the full set of stuff, here are the apt-source entries...


    Currently, the frameworks and most of the KDE Gear (Apps) 21.04 are in Debian/experimental. I will upload Plasma 5.22 to experimental as soon as NEW processing of two packages is finished (which might take another few months).

Plasma 5.22 Released with Better Wayland Support

  • Plasma 5.22 Released with Better Wayland Support

    Plasma 5.22 includes many small tweaks that make the experience just a little bit better. The release focuses on usability, stability, and flexibility improvements.

    The first one is the Adaptive Transparency for panels and their widgets. This feature will let you have your panel be transparent when you just have open windows floating around and have those panels turn opaque when you have a maximized window. Transparent panels do look pretty weird when you have a solid window occupying the whole screen. If you prefer you can elect to make panels completely transparent or completely opaque.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
