Installing Wine from WineHQ in Ubuntu 23.04

Installing Wine from WineHQ in Ubuntu 23.04

Hi everyone, Today, we will be installing Wine from the WineHQ repository in Ubuntu 23.04. Wine is a compatibility layer that allow us to run Windows software on Linux.

Installing the Linux Kernel 6.0.0-rc5 in Ubuntu

Unfortunately, this release failed to build for the amd64 architecture on the Ubuntu Kernel Team site, but the good news is that today’s daily build succeeded, and we can download and install it in our Ubuntu system. Because the kernel failed to build for the official 6.0.0-rc5 release, we cannot install it via the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Instaler tool. Instead, we must download…

You can now install the Linux Kernel 6.0-rc3 in Ubuntu with the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel Installer tool

Hi everyone, While the latest Linux Kernel is currently at the 6.0-rc4 version, now we can install the Linux Kernel 6.0-rc3 in our Ubuntu Linux systems.

Starting up the PulseAudio Service manually in Ubuntu 22.10

Hi everyone, You may recall the post I wrote about installing WirePlumber a few weeks ago. This was because Ubuntu 22.10 will switch to using the PipeWire audio server as the default, replacing PulseAudio. However, there are still some packages that may depend on the actual PulseAudio service due to its implementation. An example of this is the pulseaudio-dlna package, which uses PulseAudio to add DLNA renderers as sound output devices. Therefore, we must start this service manually in Ubuntu…
