- Install mutt or neomutt with your favourite package manager:
apt install neomutt
or install from source
git clone https://github.com/neomutt/neomutt
Here are the sample commands to configure and build NeoMutt:
./configure --gnutls --gpgme --gss --sasl --tokyocabinet
2. create a muttrc using mutt-wizard
git clone https://github.com/LukeSmithxyz/mutt-wizard
sudo make install
The mutt-wizard is run with the command
mw. It also installs the
mailsync command. Once everything is setup, you’ll use
neomutt to access your mail.>
mw add — add a new email account
mw ls — list existing accounts
mw pass — revise an account’s password
mw delete — deleted an added account
mw purge — delete all accounts and settings
mw cron — toggle/configure a cronjob to sync mail
3. create mutt mailboxes correctly using maildirmake utility from courier mail server. The individual components can be downloaded here. Most tutorials leave out this part, and so I struggled with a persistent mailbox format error.
4. Use pass to initialise and store mailbox passwords
pass pass init <gpgemail>
5. More Information
There some issues with nautilus file browser in 18.04. For starters no clear way to run scripts, no app-runner for instance.
Here is how to install nautilus-actions in 18.04
Here is a fix for lack of contextual menus in 16.04, it should work after you install the above.
And here is a fix for the lost or broken icons:
Since latest Nautilus 3.26.4, most external thumbnailers are not working anymore under Ubuntu 18.04 or 18.10.
I realized the problem when my LibreOffice and MsOffice thumbnailers stopped to work.
Why ? Because, since few months, some Nautilus external thumbnailers vulnerabilities have come to light (gnome-exe-thumbnailer for example).
As a result, Gnome Shell team has decided to harden thumbnails generation when using external thumbnailers.
First hardening steps have come with Nautilus 3.26.4, where all external thumbnailers are not called directly but thru bwrap, the bubblewrap project sandboxing tool.
Default bwrap options used by Nautilus appear to work fine under Fedora, but fail badly under Ubuntu and Debian based distros.
This short article explains how to reactivate Nautilus external thumbnails generation under Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 and Cosmic 18.10. You should get back thumbnails generation as they were working with previous versions of Nautilus.
The Ubuntu Global Jam is an event held on the weekend of 27 to 29 August in which the Ubuntu community comes together to work together and think about improvements. Ubuntu Global Jam used to be called Ubuntu Global Bug Jam, but since we took the bug out, the event is now more of a social than a bug jam.
Everyone can participate in the Jam and is welcome and encouraged to participate If only to meet with other members of Ubuntu who contribute on a weekly and daily basis.
The Ubuntu Global Jam will include events that are planned around the world on staple topics such as: Bugs, testing the new version and reporting on it, upgrading to Maverick Lucid, information about how to use Ubuntu and join the community, translation or packaging. I would also suggest some fresh topics, such as focusing on making Ubuntu a great sound platform as opposed to being mediocre. ( If you’re a musician, now is your time to literally jam), also using Ubuntu in real-life situations as opposed to server-client networks. Exactly how plug ‘n play is Ubuntu in a home office environment? Another pet project is to implement drag-n-drop more uniformly across applications (see Appearance applet for an example of drag ‘n drop) and to have greater application interoperability. We should be able to create new applications like lego blogs, without ever having to see a line of code!!!
Although the wiki already has a few Global Jam logos, Bognarandras , has created an awesome universal logo for Ubuntu Global Jam which is really refreshing. Why keep repeating the same old designs?
Just another word on the Global part of the Global Jam, raised at last year’s Jam event. Videoconferencing and/or IRC communication between Jam events is encouraged. We should be communicating, not simply eating pizza!!! Throw us some skypes, plug in some sounds, make it a real jam this year. This probably means creating some form of roster for linkups and testing links with kit, so that when the general public arrive at your local event, they are not simply greeted by a dark screen running code.
It never ceases to amaze me how Ubuntu has taken off in the Spanish-speaking world. Then again RMS speaks Spanish and Marcos Diaz, who is Spanish born, is the person who initiated the Nathive project. Nathive is a free image editor like Photoshop, Corel or GIMP, but focused on usability. The program runs in GNOME environments, and anyone can participate in it, contributing ideas or code translations. The project is currently in beta, is written in Python using GTK +, and is working hard to get a very complete program without losing ease of use. Nathive’s philosophy is to show respect and gratitude towards the community of GIMP, to make it easy and to reach people who do not need to see all the options at the same time
Nathiv is now a growing community which you can join if you wish.

ID Software’s Doomsday Engine was released for most computer platforms. You can use it to play a number of legacy games in Ubuntu like Doom, Heretic and Hexen, all kickass games whose commercial sell-by-date was probably around the turn of the century. Nevertheless some relatively free fun is still to be had, especially with Russian hacks and customisations which arose in the cold vacuum of cyberspace and in an age when RAM and graphics cards were relatively scarce. Believe it or not, people still hand over cash to play Doom on high-end iPhones and it amazes me that proprietary behaviour is relegating the platform to a quaint oddity. Let’s free the iWad then?
This tutorial, based upon this one, is still a work in progress. Using it, I managed to get a game of Ultimate Doom going, minus sound.
1. First install deng
Add the closest or most recent deng repo for your distribution, in my case luckily, karmic. Check here for repo updates and campaign for more releases.
deb http://debian.keesmeijs.nl/ karmic-kees main
deb-src http://debian.keesmeijs.nl/ karmic-kees main
sudo apt-get update && install deng
2. Install the Snowberry launcher
First make sure you have snowberry’s dependencies: python and a recent wxpython (available here at wxpython.org)
To get the latest wxpython add this key
Add the following to your sources list
Update then install python-wxgtk2.8
sudo apt-get update && install python-wxgtk2.8
At least demos keep us in the loop. And hopefully the games will eventually be released as Open Source.
Welcome to the Linux Game Publishing demos website.
Here you will find the latest demos for each game published by LGP. You can download any of the demos and try them out for free!
Phrank deserves an award for coming up with this hack. NoCompiz uses Compiz-switch, a simple program that turns Compiz off if it is on and vice-versa.
NoCompiz will take one input – the name of a program – Turn off Compiz, run the program, then turn Compiz back on when the program exits.
This is very useful when you’re running Compiz all the time, but want to switch to a full-screen 3D game for awhile and not have to worry about Compiz messing with the game.
Just download noCompiz, unzip, and run the Install.sh installer from within Nautilus.
edit the menu entry of the programme you want to toggle.
eg, nocompiz kdenlive
