Welcome to Destination Linux for 10-30-17

This week we will be covering………….

  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • LXqt
  • Xubuntu
  • Antix
  • Linux Mint and the latest gaming news

But first, we have a viewer email

“I bought a second hand hdd from a sale the local school had. It’s a 2tb western digital blue I installed it, got it mounted and used it for about an hour before it became inaccessible. Reformatting at this point left me w a chunk of inaccessible data. Now either hdparm or disks put its status as frozen. From my understanding this can be fixed by power cycling the hdd without power cycling the computer? I’m wondering if this will be a continuous problem on this drive? Would the easiest solution be to put it in an external case?”

Gaming

What have I been playing:

Borderlands 2. I’ve put over a dozen hours into this triple A title and believe its one of the best FPS shooters of all time second to Doom 2016. Ridiculous laugh out loud humor, great story, amazing graphics, fantastic soundtrack. A must have title that’s native to Linux. The Prequel is just as amazing.
