  1. Ubuntu 20.04 could be hacked using this security flaw Trick your way to superuser privileges (Image credit: Shutterstock / Magura) security researcher claims to have accidentally discovered an "astonishingly straightforward way” to gain administrative powers on an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS installation. The vulnerability was unearthed by GitHub’s Kevin Backhouse who’s been spending time to weed out security vulnerabilities in Ubuntu’s system services to make his favourite distro as secure as possible.

  2. Ubuntu 21.04 gets the codename ‘Hirsute Hippo' Following the release of Ubuntu 20.10 almost a week ago, Canonical has revealed the name of the next version of Ubuntu to be ‘Hirsute Hippo’ – the adjective means hairy. Ubuntu 21.04 ‘Hirsute Hippo’ is set to be released next April and is the third Ubuntu release with an ‘H’ codename, the first being Ubuntu 5.04 'Hoary Hedgehog' and the second being Ubuntu 8.04 ‘Hardy Heron’. Now that we know which animal has been chosen for the codename, it's likely that one of the wallpapers in Ubuntu 21.04 will fea

  4. Ubuntu 20.10 ‘Groovy Gorilla' is available to download now Canonical has announced the immediate availability of Ubuntu 20.10 ‘Groovy Gorilla’. While this version is considered stable and fit to be run as a daily driver, it is not a Long Term Support (LTS) release and will therefore only receive security updates for nine months. The new version comes with a variety of new software including Linux Kernel 5.8 and GNOME 3.38. Developer tools such as programming languages and compilers have also received updates - this release ships with glibc 2.32, O

Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS out now opening LTS upgrade path Canonical has announced the release of Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS for its Desktop, Server, and Cloud products as well as other Ubuntu flavours with long-term support. Additionally, those still running Ubuntu 18.04 LTS will now be offered the upgrade inside the Update Manager. As with other point releases, Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS comes with all the latest security patches from preceding months, saving time post-installation. When Ubuntu 20.04 LTS was released back in April, those on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS were not o
  6. Google is bringing the fruits of its cross-platform app making framework Flutter to Linux desktops with help of Canonical no less. Over 500,000 developers already use Flutter, Google’s open source UI framework, to building mobile apps, and tech is often pitched as an alternative to React Native. But while the Flutter SDK has been available on Linux to create apps for other platforms it wasn’t possible to build desktop Linux apps. That changes today.

  7. By Joey Sneddon Wondering what Mark Shuttleworth thinks about IBM buying Red Hat? Well, wonder no more. The Ubuntu founder has shared his thoughts on IBM’s game-changing purchase in a short but pointed blog post. And, few of you will be surprised to learn, the space-faring free-software fan thinks the deal marks a “significant moment in the progression of open source to the mainstream”. And rightly so: there was a time when open source was viewed as the outside option. Now, thanks to companies like Red Hat and Canonical, it’s the de-

  9. Canonical has announced the release of Ubuntu 19.10 Eoan Ermine. The new version will be supported for nine months as is the case with all non-LTS releases and is the final version before the next LTS update in April 2020. With this update, Canonical has updated the core pieces of software including GNOME, which was bumped to version 3.34. Additionally, users can also use ZFS on the root file system as an experimental feature. While the standard Ubuntu release will be what most people flock to, the 19.10 update is also available for other Ubuntu flavours such as Ubuntu Budgie, Kubu

Yesterday brought exciting news on the ZFS and Ubuntu fronts—experimental ZFS root support in the installer for Ubuntu's upcoming interim release, Eoan Ermine. The feature appeared in the 2019-10-09 daily build of Eoan—it's not in the regular beta release and, in fact, wasn't even in the "current daily" when we first went to download it. It's that new!

  11. Newly revealed exploit gave anyone root access on Linux systems Canonical has issued an urgent security fix to the ‘sudo’ package in the Ubuntu archives following the discovery of a major security flaw. A critical fix has rolled out to all users of Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, 18.04 LTS, 19.04 and 19.10 (and one assumes Ubuntu 14.04 ESR too) — just run a sudo apt upgrade to install it.

  13. The modern Linux desktop is one where "everything just works," and "you're able to use the applications that you've come to rely on in your day-to-day life," says Canonical's Will Cooke. Following Canonical's pivot away from its internally-developed Unity user interface and Mir display server, Ubuntu has enjoyed two relatively low-drama years, as the Linux Desktop market homogenized during its transition back to a customized GNOME desktop. In a review of the most recent release, TechRepublic's Jack Wallen declared that "Ubuntu 19.04 should seriously impress anyone look
  14. Canonical’s Ubuntu operating system is one of the biggest names in desktop GNU/Linux. But if you plan to play PC games on Linux, you might want to start looking around for a different Linux distro. Ubuntu developer Steve Langasek announced last week that starting with Ubuntu 19:10, which comes out in October, Canonical would no longer provide 32-bit builds of applications and libraries. This being Linux, there will be workarounds — but many existing apps may not work out of the box anymore. Case in point: a number of games from GOG cannot be installed on a
