Nemo bookmarks update

For new and old users alike, when you fire up nemo, all of your existing bookmarks will be where they always are, in the My Computer section.

At this point, any new bookmarks you create via menus (Bookmarks->Add Bookmark, for instance) are placed in a new Bookmarks section.

If you don’t wish to populate this new section, you can just drag that new bookmark into the other section, and the Bookmark heading will disappear, so this is completely optional to use.  Drag and drop creation or rearranging of bookmarks is even simpler: just drag the item wherever you want it.  If the bookmarks section is hidden, it will temporarily appear during the drag, so you can place items there if you want.

That’s all there is to it – no options to enable, just use it how you’d like, or keep it out of the way.

Improvements in the  Update Manager

The Update Manager no longer shows package updates, but updates (i.e. one line per source package). This means you will no longer see 20 lines or so per libreoffice update but just a few. To give you an example, on my box this reduced the number of updates from 550 to just under 200.
Short descriptions also now appear in the list of updates.
Size and old version columns are still available in the View menu but hidden by default.
Last but not least, the Update Manager no longer hides itself after applying updates.

"We Are Explorers"

Cut/Copy’s new video, directed by Masa Kawamura, Qanta Shimizu and Aramique Krauthamer, marks the start of a 3D storytelling project. The new music video for Cut Copy’s “We Are Explorers” is a 3D-printed story. It starts with you. Download the BitTorrent Bundle to unlock the “We Are Explorers” music video. Then, use the 3D files to print, shoot and reshape the narrative any way you want. This is an open call for exploration.

CUT COPY LYRICS

"We Are Explorers"

[Verse 1]
Can you tell me a story
From the end of the night
Girl you tell to break the ice
And the love will go fine
Can you tell me you think straight
Plot a course in the landscape
Just tell me you’re fine

[Chorus]
We are the people
We are here alone
We are explorers when beat goes on
We’re on a journey to the morning sun
To-geth-er

[Verse 2]
Got a face for the frontpage
You should join me sometime
I wanna dream up a new age
If the planets align
With a hunger for never
Windows stretching forever
Just tell me your fine

[Chorus]
We are the people
We are here alone
We are explorers when beat goes on
We’re on a journey to the morning sun
Together

[Verse 3]
You’ll get through with a little love
Just you wait and see
You’ll get through with a little love
Just you wait and see

[Breakdown x4]
Keep my hands up pointing to the sky
Until the daylight comes, into our minds to rescue us

[Chorus]


This entire video was made with 3D printed figurines. Download the 3D files for free, print them and re-imagine the narrative with your own stop-motion: https://bundles.bittorrent.com/bundles/weareexplorers

Hey guys! I just want you remember of the Maya Studio-Project - a Linux Mint based Multimedia-Production-System.

There exists actual just one 32bit-version to download but grounded on a Linux Mint 13 [Maya] LTS-version it gets updates until 2017 and seems to be the right decision for all people who wants to have a stable and secure system to work on media without installing and configuring a lot!

Maya Studio 13.07 includes Ubuntu Studio and KXStudio-Repos and a lot of other software to work on Audio, Video and Photos in an easy and professional way. It comes with Low-Latency-Kernel and beautiful lightweight Mate-Desktop.

The main attraction seems the newest version of the Ardour-Daw-Sequenzer and Mixxx for Recording, Producing and Djing.

It works on netbooks and older machines same well as on newer computers!

Credits to Joseph from the development team, Cinnamon 2.4 will gain support for background slideshows.
So far, two types of background collections are supported:
Cinnamon background collections, which are XML collections provided by the OS or installed via the Software Manager (in the screenshot above we can see mint-backgrounds-qiana and mint-backgrounds-petra)
Filesystem directories, which you can add or remove via the interface
The interface remains simple with the ability to either pick a single background from a collection or activate a slideshow for that collection.
