Torrents are an excellent way to share data publicly. As you may already know as a Linux user, many Linux distro developers choose to share their operating system in the form of a torrent download. This allows someone to publish data and rely on the “swarm” (the users that are uploading or downloading the torrent’s contents) to continue hosting it.
Audio metadata contains information like artist, song title, track number, album name, etc. It can even contain an embedded image of the cover art for the album. This metadata is accessed by music players in order to display relevant information about the song that is playing. Without this metadata, a music player might have trouble sorting your music by artist, album, genre, or putting the tracks in proper order.
Linux systems offer a wide range of choice, and music players are no exception. For quite a while, there have been fantastic options when choosing the perfect music player for your Linux computer. All of these players are just as good, if not better, than their proprietary counterparts on other operating systems. They range from the minimal, light weight, and targeted to feature-rich multipurpose players capable of nearly anything. There’s a great choice for every music fan on Linux.
PDF metadata contains information like author, subject, creator, producer, and keywords. This information is embedded into the PDF file itself, and can be retrieved if a user needs to determine who released the document, or wants to see what application was used to create it, etc. The keywords can also help organize PDF documents by category in case you have a lot of PDF files.

Any desktop Linux system should come with a default video player, which is usually capable of handling all of the most popular video formats and codecs. However, you may find that some systems do not include the proprietary software necessary to play back certain file types. Or, maybe you are just not satisfied with the pre installed video player that came with your Linux distro.
The ability to get the temperature of a key component such as a CPU is important, whether you are gaming, overclocking, or hosting intensive processes on a critical server for your company.

In this tutorial, you will learn how to access these sensors and get the CPU temperature on a Linux system.
The purpose of this tutorial is to show how to change the language in LibreOffice on a Linux system.
