In this video, I speedrun installing Arch Linux with KDE. If you think you can beat my record I encourage you to record your own speedrun, and leave it in the comments to this video.
The speedrun timer I used:
Lubuntu is an open-source distribution of Linux based on Ubuntu. It is lightweight, fewer resource hungry, more energy-efficient and uses an LXQT desktop environment.
The initial release of Lubuntu has LXDE as their desktop environment but with version 18.04 it uses LXQT. If you are an existing user of Lubuntu who uses LXDE then migrating to higher versions that use LXQT will be challenging.
In that case, you have to opt for a fresh copy of Lubuntu 20.04. Let’s take a look at what official documentation has to say about upgrading from LXDE to LXQT.
Due to the extensive changes required for the shift in desktop environments, the Lubuntu team does not support upgrading from 18.04 or below to any greater release. Doing so will result in a broken system. If you are on 18.04 or below and would like to upgrade, please do a fresh install.
A good place to start before installing is the Lubuntu manual. It has a good set of documentation to understand what this distro has to offer. Since Lubuntu is a derivative of Ubuntu and it has access to Ubuntu software repositories through discovery software center, synaptic package manager, and apt package manager. It comes with Linux kernel 5.0.4-42-generic and bash version 5.0.17.
The latest version of Lubuntu is 20.04 LTS and it is supported till April 2023.

In this tutorial, we are going to discuss how to install WordPress Desktop Client In Ubuntu/Debian Linux distributions. Using this app, one can easily access their WordPress.com blogs or self hosted websites as well, without logging directly to their blog.
What is WordPress Desktop Client?
WordPress Desktop Client is basically an app, developed by a company named Automattic, that is owned by co-founder of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg. More precisely, this is the same company who developed Jetpack and WordPress.com.
With the help of this application, a use can experience improved features for self-hosted websites. It offers a distraction free editor on your screen to create new contents. However, it has some limitations as well. Take a look through its advantages and disadvantages:

Itching your head due to missing device driver on your machine? Looking for how to install a device drive on a Linux system? Just switched to a new OS, but hardware is not working well? Check out this article to learn how you can install a missing device drive on your Linux system.
Installing and configuring a driver on a Linux based machine is quite daunting for those who just switched to Linux from Windows/Mac, or trying the new OS with dual boot. The widely used windows and Mac operating system often makes it a user-friendly experience when it comes to install device drivers, but in case of a Linux OS, the user might find some of their hardware is not working. Well, this would not be an issue anymore.
Is it challenging to install a device driver on Linux?
For Windows and Mac OS users, it’s really an easy approach to install any device driver as the OS detects those automatically. Also, the users can download the missing ones from the internet, and just click on a simple wizard to have the driver installed.
However, in case of a Linux platform, the process is not enough simple. One of the most common reason is, Linux is an open-source OS and a number of variations available. So, there can’t be a single method that can suit all Linux platforms, and every of the distribution has its own way regarding how to install a device driver on system.
In addition, most of the default Linux drivers are open-source and integrated in the system, and this makes the installation of missing drivers quite complicated, if not included already with OS. Still, most of the useful drivers are automatically detected with popular Linux distros.
Another reason why installing a device driver on a Linux can be complicated is license policies which technically vary among Linux distributions. Such as Fedora restricts to include drivers which are legally prohibited or violate cyber laws. Even Ubuntu asks its users to prevent using closed hardware.
Means, installing a device driver on a Linux can be a bit challenging, but still here mentioned 2 approaches can be helpful.
Two Methods To Find Drivers & Install on Linux
Approach 1: Using Built-in Interface
Approach 2: Using Command Line
