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?”

  1. Thank you for linking to my “Euro Truck Simulator 2 Coming To GNU/Linux Soon!” post,
    But those news are from 2013, it’s been out for Linux for quite some time (and ATS too).
    However it’s a great game that I recommend everyone to play.

    1. Thanks for the heads up on that. It came through my RSS reader linking to your site and I didn’t look at the date…DOH!! It’s not the first time I made a mistake and surely won’t be the last. Either way, it’s a good game to cover.
      Do you use telegram?
