How to send sound through Bluetooth on Linux
Bluetooth headsets and speakers are now more popular than ever before, but getting them to work under Linux isn’t always very clear. With all that is going on in the Linux sound systems world, it is easy to get lost and even give up. Most of the time, the problem with these devices is that your system can see them, but for some reason it can’t establish a connection. Here is a quick and simple guide on how to get through this problem. I have tested the following on Arch, but it should work on every other distribution as well.

Configuring a single Ubuntu installation as a dual-boot option and a VirtualBox appliance under Windows 10

Configuring a single Ubuntu installation as a dual-boot option and a VirtualBox appliance under Windows 10
I often need to use Windows 10 and Ubuntu on the same machine within a single login session, so I run Ubuntu as a virtual machine in Oracle VirtualBox. But I also like to be able to boot my computer natively into Ubuntu, so a dual-boot configuration is optimal. To get the best of both worlds, I install Ubuntu in a dual-boot configuration alongside Windows, and configure VirtualBox to access the Ubuntu disk partitions as a raw disk image. This allows me to boot directly into Ubuntu, or boot the same Ubuntu installation from within Windows using VirtualBox.

Managing a Headless VirtualBox Installation with phpvirtualbox (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)

Managing a Headless VirtualBox Installation with phpvirtualbox (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS)
Phpvirtualbox is a web-based VirtualBox front-end written in PHP that allows you to access and control remote VirtualBox instances. It tries to resemble the VirtualBox GUI as much as possible to make work with it as easy as possible. It is a nice replacement for the VirtualBox GUI if you run VirtualBox in headless servers (like in the tutorial VBoxHeadless – Running Virtual Machines with VirtualBox 5.1 on a headless Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Server). This tutorial explains how to install phpvirtualbox on an Ubuntu 16.04 server to manage a locally installed, headless VirtualBox.
