How good is Wacom’s Linux support?

Is the driver coming from Wacom directly or mostly developed by community?

Can I randomly buy a modern-ish Wacom digital pad, plug it in a popular distro and expect it just works?


Not sure what his computer is running, but why a VM? Install those things natively and forget about it.

Well, unless his computer is running non-Unix-like OSes like Windows. I wouldn’t bother to, if I were him. A Raspberry Pi serves way better.


  1. I think you need to show us the command you ran and the error message that follows.

  2. The more common way to do what you want nowadays is through Docker.


VLC is open source. The moment the author invites sponsors, more new forks happen. Moreover, the claim of ‘tens of million’ is likely an accumulated number. The author has but one chance to sell the software, so there wasn’t that much money at the first place.

But after all, thanks for all the effort.


I don’t think nuclear reactors spew CO2. Why would they and where does the carbon come from?


While FF forks are good for privacy, I refuse to blindly trust them. I understand they are still open source but I doubt there are as many people as those who are actively reviewing FF’s code. I’d rather let FF do the telemetry (if I’m too lazy tweaking it) than some malicious code accidentally went into its more privacy-focused forks.



I got that a lot on Reedit. Every time I comment I think to myself “why bother?” New posts should be consumed as well.

But perhaps they shouldn’t be called “hot”. It maximises post data usage and therefore be called… " eco"?


We had Ubuntu Touch running on HTC HD2 more than ten years ago. No. I am not impressed. I can dual boot my phone if I want to. Or buy a secondary phone.


“Hi. I would like to hear a UDP joke.”

“OK. I will tell you a UDP joke.”

“Are you ready for the UDP joke?”

“Hello?”

“Yes, I am here.”

“Would you like to hear a UDP joke”

“Yes, please.”

“OK. Are you ready for the UDP joke?”

“Yes, I am ready.”

“entered mathematicians bar Infinite the.”

“said beer I bartender will have the The to a of glass mathematician first.”



I think a better question would be, ‘Aren’t you mad that about 90% of Linux desktop still don’t run Wayland?’


first paragraph: six-figure salary for open source developer

me: clicks back button



Oh, sure. Open source devs who work full-time for free are millionaires to begin with. They surly have more power than average people.

I constantly day dream that one day I’ll be one of them.


Recently played Celeste. Nice game. Love it.

10/10? I had to rate it an 8 because many stages seem to be relying on precision, the action mechanics are full of bugs (super moves). Speed runners, and even the Winged Golden Strawberry are using these technics to finish the game.


To be fair, they did state it’s a 18-bar pack.


Looks like it’s still pirating after all.
