This has been yet another slow week for Linux news as we only saw a few distro releases, including Kali Linux’s first release in 2022, KaOS Linux’s second release in 2022, as well as AV Linux’s first release in 2022, which is now based on MX Linux.

Also this week, Linux phone and tablet users received a new Ubuntu Touch OTA update, KDE Plasma users got a new point release of their favorite desktop environment, and Linux gamers got a new Proton release to run the latest Windows games.

On top of that, I take a look a Minder as the Flatpak App of the Week, show you how to install the latest KDE Plasma 5.24 LTS desktop environment on Kubuntu 21.10, and take a first look at GNOME 42’s new built-in screenshot and screencast feature.

You can enjoy this and much more in 9to5Linux’s Linux weekly roundup for February 20th, 2022, below!
