Xubuntu’s Default Xfce Desktop Theme Greybird Gets Initial Support for GTK4

Tue, 03/22/2022 - 18:45

Almost six months in development, Greybird 3.23.0 is here to introduce initial support for GTK4 and libhandy in an attempt to make the popular Xfce theme, which is used by default in recent Xubuntu releases, more modern and keep it up with the times. GTK4 support means that Greybird will play nice with recent GTK4 apps.

For those not familiar with libhandy, it’s a library used for creating mobile versions of GTK and GNOME apps, so Greybird getting libhandy support could mean that it might see a version of the Xfce desktop environment on mobile operating systems like ExpidusOS, which is still in very alpha stage.

A Beginner’s Guide to cron Command in Linux

Tue, 03/22/2022 - 13:15

By using the cron command, we can schedule and run many tasks automatically in Linux/Unix. You can execute them once or on a regular basis. Cron is widely used to schedule repetitive tasks at regular intervals (using commands listed in a file called ‘crontab’), and the ‘at’ function is a way of scheduling a task once during a specific period.For each user, Crontab maintains a crontab file. Automated jobs will be extremely helpful for many administrators who manage Linux servers.

In general, the crontab function is used for backups, updating systems, synchronizing servers, etc. The great thing about cron is that you don’t have to understand it in detail, instead, you just need to know how to use it as part of setting up cron jobs.
