How come I run appimages with glibc then? ;)

Can’t get enough of Void.

I install it using this method on my laptop but I go for glibc over musl. Post install I setup sway, PipeWire and what not and have a good time.

Package manager rocks, I don’t think I miss anything from the repos.

Awesome community around the distro. The fact that they have official documentation is great.

I don’t do anything productive on my machine. Procrastination all the way <3

Don’t quote me but Gala is based on Mutter which back when had some janky desktop icon implementation using Natilus. It was removed because it was less ideal implementation.

eOS team is all about (at least outwardly) having features be well implemented and standardized - see their dark theme implementation for instance, they would rather invent a good implementation over implementing half-baked ones even if the halfbaked one might have more adoption.

I thing the Solus team with Budgie DE quite recently reintroduced desktop icons in a more sane implementation.

Like I said, don’t quote me on this, not that invested.

Well worth the money being asked for the album!..


Title suggestion: A few great terminal based applications. Or Three great terminal based applications.

“Best Linux apps” suggest that there has been a conclusion on the topic and that the following apps mentioned are the best which does not jive with the actual content of the article.

nnn, aerc, neovim, micro

They don’t have a wiki page, it has been deprecated it to make room and focus for official documentation (clickable for your convenience).

If soldered on, glued and laminated are words your brother likes go for an M1 or whatever else within the thinness race.

I would go for longevity á Framework/Thinkpad type deal. Really salivating over the Framework with it’s 3:2 display but my repairable Thinkpad X230 just won’t break - which is a good thing ;)

edit: also, don’t push your convictions too hard on the guy. Arm, RISC, Linux are all great but he’ll need to get things done at school, not faff about with incompatibility issues. I’d love to have an expantioncard with nvme drive for the Framework with Windows on it.

Really? I have to check that out. Seems like a major oversight on Mozillas behalf or sabotage on Microsofts part if that’s the case during Covid-times :P

There’s suggestions?? I use it to send things I want to read to my ereader (Kobo thing).

After I read the deportation threats I was speechless. Did not think it could get any worse than their previous 2-3 stumbles.

It’s audio editing software for god sakes…

I know how they could sway me to give up a pretty penny. Offer paid hosted alternatives to Google Suite and two-way-file synchronization à Dropbox type thing. FOSS alternatives where I’m not the product. People, even normies are shouting for such services. Their VPN is basically useless as I have a subscription to Mullvad.

I don’t think they have neglected focus on their browser in the slightest nor have little focus on alternative income streams. But something is way off in their ability to assess market needs.

Idk, I like firefox more now than a year ago. I think it has moved forward as to be expected. I mainly use qutebrowser, but when a site does not work properly in qb or it’s a webapp more suited for a traditional browser it’s Firefox for me.

What sites does not function properly in FF and is that really FF’s fault and not the Chromehead-webdevs fault?

I could however, the the poster (sudodnfdashy) have yet to answer if he/she is the author of these listicles on thekarnalblog when asked in previous posts. It would be pointless spending more time on proper critique if he/she is not the author or is and but is not interested in criticism or conversations around the articles as I have offered to share previously.

Edit: there has now been a confirmation that sudodnfdashy is in fact the author and I might just leave criticisms at some point, although when I’ve asked previously it’s not been answered.

Oh my god these listicles and the wording used trigger me…

Void Linux for me. Swaywm, pipewire, scratchpads, waybar, tui applications- yummy stuff.

Use case: procrastination. Maybe one day I’ll learn a language (zig curious) and actually start making things - got so many ideas for TUI applications it’s insane.

As others have pointed out

  • sane base install
  • rolling
  • up-to-date repos
  • fast as lightning package manager
  • runit is a lovely init
  • stable, not “stale”
  • edit: there’s awesome documentation!

Got to say though, Fedora 34 on my wifes laptop is pretty slick. I have a few nitpicks, but nothing major.

Are you the author of these articles? I’m thinking of this article and the one about DEs.

If you are, I might leave more constructive critique than my knees suggest I do.

So much wrong in this article I cringed all the way back to 2010…

I can confirm this being amazing. Got me a 64GB stick this friday, installed ventoy and chucked void, fedora, windows and boot repair disk on it. Freaking magic compared to floppy’s, CDs and separate- or reformatted usb-sticks.

Helloa! I poped open a community for all things Ukulele, come join if small lute-derived instruments with a funny vibe interests you :)…


Idea: Lower the impact for down votes

I made a post on r/ukulele where I seek help finding vegan friendly ukuleles. Instant-down-vote because of the V-word hindering it being discovered by those interested. It’s not offensive, I specifically ask to keep discussions on veganism out of it and I stayed polite about the topic - [I think?](h…


Where is Shotwell ratings stored and general photo library management strategies?

I have a system for sorting my photos using the ratings feature. It came about me trying to sort out the insane mess created by phone photography and automagic camera uploads have on your photo library. I needed a quick way to go through marking photos in order to sort out what has value or not. …


Reorganizing $HOME

I’m looking to restructure my home folder. Have for a long time used the standard XDG user directory structure ($HOME/{Desktop,Documents,Downloads...}) and it has become a mess. Also the capitalized directory names are inconvenient for a multitude of reasons. …


Server distro project for super-easy deployment? Help me find it [Solved]
