This week on DLN Xtend, using a home VPN server, JACK audio, DLN's DigitalOcean sponsorship, feedback from the AppImageLauncher developer, community testing the PinePhone, FreeCAD, KDE Plasma 5.18, PC cooling, and ProtonCalendar. Thanks for listening!

DLN Xtend 13 is out! This week we talk Linux laptop brands, Linux tablets, DLN's latest game night, Linux user groups, Hayden Barnes of Canonical on WSL and Microsoft, and Dustin Krysak of Ubuntu Budgie and giving back to FOSS.

I'll be streaming tonight at 8 PM Eastern US time, covering the recent 4.1 Fortitude release, @EndeavourOS, @Manjaro 19.0 previews and anything brought up in chat. Hope to see you there!

I found the best solution yet for NVIDIA Optimus graphics on my laptop running Arch thanks to a post in the @Manjaro forum. Here's a quick video on how it works.

Spell check in Telegram Desktop not working for you on Arch-based distros? Make sure you install the aspell dictionary for your language. Quick overview here -

The @kde Plasma 5.18 Beta is available on @Kubuntu for testing on 19.10 or 20.04. This video shows you how to install and report bugs. Thanks to the KDE and Kubuntu teams for continuing to make the Plasma desktop a great experience on the Linux desktop.

"If you’re currently a Windows 7 user and are curious about what you’re seeing in the video, I recommend taking Kubuntu 19.10 for a test drive." We agree, Jason :D

According to the Focal Fosa release schedule, a week of #Ubuntu 20.04 testing 🔨 starts today. I've upgraded to 20.04, have you?

One last quick look at the @ManjaroLinux
KDE 19.0 Preview, this time on hardware to see how the NVIDIA Optimus support in the 440 hybrid package is working. Turns out rather well.

Another @manjarolinux quick look video, this time of the KDE Plasma 19.0 preview. The new Breath2 theme looks great!

@manjarolinux released a preview of the 19.0 @gnome edition today so I took a quick look. The layout switcher is a nice touch.
