Ubuntu Snaps to Integrate Fully with GNOME and KDE

“Snaps continue for Ubuntu and other distributions (now Fedora, openSUSE, Debian and others). They will also integrate fully with GNOME, KDE, and I hope Elementary, MATE, etc. too,” said Mark Shuttleworth. “They are an amazingly clean way to deliver apps and since most of the major software companies target Ubuntu this is a good way to enable other distros to benefit too.”

Hi there

I’m on 16.04.2 lts

I always used to have this problem. Instead of a reboot I found online (can’t remember where) using ‘Sudo systemctl restart network-manager’ Worked and prevented a reboot.

The problem stopped recently for me. However my upgrade to 16.04.2 coincided with a change of ISP and router. Didn’t think until I listened to this episode that I hadn’t pinned the problem to the router or wifI driver (I use broadcom with kernel firmware)

All the best




destination linux is really a great , show! i wanted to comment on the kde sound switching issue. when you click on the sound icon in system tray, switch to the applications tab, there you can drag an drop the application sounds to your audio devices, there are also options in the sound settings, to change the behavior of the switching (change just one application or change all apllications at once for exampe).

keep on the great work.

greetings from germany
