Tested: GNUmed Client on Debian 9.3/Fedora 26/Ubuntu 16.04 Part 2

Continued fromTested: GNUmed Client on Debian 9.3/Fedora 26/Ubuntu 16.04 Part 1

Both the GNUmed client and GNUmed server are available from the standard Fedora repositories, but they are both earlier versions (as of this writing 1.6.7 and 21.7 respectively). The client installed and worked as designed on Fedora 26 Workstation. Repositories for CentOS 6/RHEL 6 are available, though there is no guarantee installing from either would work problem-free on Fedora 26 or 27.

FreeMedForms is also available from the Fedora 26 repository if needed.

GNUmed client version 1.5.10 is available on the default Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS Xenial Xerus repositories. Users can add the PPA and install an updated version, which is as of this writing is version 1.6.10.

To add the GNUmed repository in Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS and install the client:

1. In Terminal, add the PPA and refresh the repositories.

add-apt-repository ppa:gnumed/ppa

apt update && apt upgrade

2. Install the gnumed-client package.

apt install gnu…

I also tested my aged Bamboo Pen and Touch with apps installed using Google Play on Chrome OS, specifically Adobe Reader for Android, Infinite Painter, Adobe Draw, and Adobe Photoshop Sketch.

Most users will find it difficult to use a Wacom digitizer with a laptop, so users with a 2-in-1 Chromebook or have an external monitor will find it easier to work with painting apps and Chrome OS.

Note: If I had known my aged Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch (2011) would work with Chrome OS, I would've invested in a 2-in-1 Chromebook, rather than the entry-level ASUS Chromebook C202SA.

Infinite Painter is an enjoyable application and worth consideration if you have a supported Wacom model and a competent Chromebook. I use Krita on Linux, ArtRage on macOS, and CorelDraw on Windows 10, and I was impressed with Infinite Painter's UI, brushes, and general usability.

Despite its age, the Bamboo Pen and Touch (2011) performed exceptionally well with Adob…

Notes on Blogger, Dynamic Views, and Unsolicited But Offered

Although Google owns Blogger, the company hasn't updated the service in years, and its understandable the user growth hasn't grown much in the face of other news, blogs, and content management services such as Wordpress, Drupal, Wix, and Duda. Most social media services also have their own blog or web page services, such as Facebook and LinkedIn. Moreover, many web hosting services either have a simplified web page design tool, or leave web developers to write their own code.

The Dynamic Views of Blogger, which Unsolicited But Offered had been using, are nice enough 2-6 years ago. In addition to being dated, however, Dynamic Views don't render as fast or as quickly enough with modern versions of browsers, including those preinstalled in mobile operating systems.  The markup found in Blogger templates just hasn't been updated for improved rendering engines found in Safari and Firefox Quantum. Blogger provides a mobile view layout that works better with smartphones and s…
