There a couple of idiots on #, but I suspect that both are the same person, that are constantly spreading # and # about #.

Their arguments are so silly and ephemeral that everytime I engage them the result is always the same: offences against myself and my comments deleted.

The inability to have a civic and constructive dialogue with these two individuals just leads me to one and simple conclusion: those persons are **saboteurs**!

I ignore the reason but they have a precise bias against Debian that cannot be based on the nonsense they repeat. There is a precise and captious scheme behind, **hence I invite all of you to not trust these two guys.**

I guess every human organisation has lights and shadows.
It's a pity. As a Debian user I'd like to read a discussion of all you (fans and detractors of the Debian project) on Diaspora. Perhaps an impartial third party could host the thread of discussion, with no deleted comments, just people trying to get their points across. Too bad this summer everybody seems to be more passionate than usual, so I'll have to read separate threads and arrive at my own conclusions.
 
@icavot

Honestly there is no point at all. It is constantly accused Debian as entity while:

1. The DPL is in charge two years with only two mandates on a row.

2. The DPL serves more as coordinator under its own program and has very limited power.

3. Each Debian team is autonomous and it responds only to itself and when is time to freeze and release Debian.

4. Debian is made by volunteers which follows the do-ocracy philosophy and barely known each others beside the mailing lists who belong to.

5. Debian uses the funds that receives to pay its infrastructure and to organize its meeting. Probably this is the only area where the DPL is in charge.

For the rest accusing Debian is stupid, you can accuse each individual that you think is not conforming or acting under the Debian Social Contract; all the rest is pure millantry.

I always thought of Gnome as independent of Canonical and Ubuntu. I agree that Mate is not any lighter weight, but wasn't clear what you did or didn't like. On my chromebooks I run Gallium OS and XFCE there really shines. It is based on Ubuntu as well though so YMMV https://galliumos.org/
 
I don't like it, I consider XFCE a more reliable and consistent desktop experience.

 

Dear #

I am pretty noob and I am still in the process learning... I have question about rendering settings... I have an old but still pretty decent GPU: a Nvidia 970M.

I did several Cycles tests (2560*2560, 128 sample) and I found out that using CUDA GPU+CPU @ 64*64 is 40% faster than rendering with just the GPU @ 256*256... And I am just figuring out why... When I bought my laptop that was the best card available, I bought it with the intention to learn better Blender, but it is just when 2.80 came out that I really started to study Blender seriously.

Now, since I am a # user I am wondering, thinking about rendering speed, if for the future would be better buying a powerful CPU like a Threadripper and a decent AMD GPU rather than buy another Nvidia card.

I mean AMD is always better for Linux but just focus primarily on rendering speed.

Thanks

i'm a lot more comfortable with the devuan community and developers (like jaromil) and where their ethics are, than debian's, official social contract or not.
i only (sid/)ceres, so i dont notice a slow moving aspect.

though, i skip a lot of the "which distro" dilema, with bedrocklinux. shsh. ;D [void|artix|gentoo|devuan]

Virtualbox troubles


Today I messed up # really badly!

This is the typical # issue!

I decided to share a same virtual machine between two users and it changed all the snapshots associated so random that it was impossible (for me) to repair the XML files associated, a nightmare, and eventually I used the last snapshot thinking to run the last state while it ran the first state instead and I ended up to export the VM again in order to merge the real disk with this snapshot...

And now I am reinstalling everything from the beginning, what a dumb! 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

I think I will never use snapshots again for a personal VM, it is more reliable just export the VM and keep this for any emergencies.

Another Weird Issues with Debian Sid


Another weird issue with # Sid, misconfiguration and kernel panic a gogo; two hours to fix the issues downgrading to testing through chroot...

I gave up with Unstable, for everyday use Testing is way more reliable, and I am not enough expert to handle with these stuff...

This is not a Debian fault it is just me though, but it is great you can fix with a Debian live cd!

# # # # # #
 
So. You found out, that Unstable is less stable than Testing.

My take: you are a f***ing genius! May I have a tattoo with your avatar?

Flatpak and Tray Icons


Hi Folks,

does anyone know if # supports system tray icons?

I am currently testing the flatpak # application but it doesn't shows any tray icon not even in the preferences that is available as option, but reading on internet it may be activated with these options: --use-tray-icon --start-in-tray

However when I run:

flatpak run org.signal.Signal --use-tray-icon --start-in-tray

The icon in the tray isn't displayed.

My system is # Testing with # as # environment, what do you think?

My best,

D.

# # # # # # #
 
By the way I installed Zoom through Flatpak and it is has the tray icon... But I didn't know that Gnome 3 doesn't support tray icon hence I had to install the nineteenth extensions... 🤦‍♂️

Pro Audio Equipment for Linux


Hi There,

my brother because, the coronavirus, needs to give his lectures in video
conference.

I suggest to him to buy some professional equipment, there a tons of Linux podcasters that maybe can suggest me hardware equipment and software.

Regarding the software I thoughts he might use #, not sure the application or the server. He needs also to record his classes and I am not sure if Discord already does it or if he needs also # installed.

We are a # based family I would need hardware recommendations that works 100% out of the box on Debian, sometimes hardware that target # work fine also in Debian, but better being sure.

He need to speaks with the students and to share the desktop and to record everything, if you think there is a better software solution please let me know.

In the meantime thanks in advance for your support!

Improving the adoption of XFCE toward developers


 
+1

 

Since # became # I saw a very radical, and ambiguous, approach to certain topics that I would suggest to rename the show # or #.

I don't know if this is a mere coincidence, but this shift is quite evident.

If you want proprietary software on a *nix base for all, just begin to pressure # to release # for any hardware so you can have all the proprietary software you want on any hardware. Or just switch to Win10 and WLS, then you have # + # + proprietary software without dual boot, practically yours dreams are already materialized.

If your idea of the # is bringing all the proprietary crap, with all the lockdowns against # that implicitly means, then I am pretty happy that we will never have the #.

You should promote # because along donations and contributions these software exist also because people use those, if you promote the proprietary software against the floss one you are simply incoherents.
 
Totally agreed, and I am also against the misconception that commercial software bring people to use the alternative free version. It doesn't work on Win and Mac why it should work on Linux is a mistery, it is just propaganda the make people more prone to accept closed software on a GPLed environment.
 
Regarding commercial vs. open software. Yes agree. People use what they know and what they know is often what they used in school and at work. The other issue of course... everyone that uses closed stuff thinks you should be compatible with them rather than they being compatible with you... not fair... but the way it usually is. For example, I have a Facebook account which I don't use that much but need because if I want to communicate with my extended family... I have to because that's what they use and nothing is likely to change that. There are a lot of examples of this sort of thing.

On the other hand I've also had great success using Linux and open applications which I've been doing both at home and work since about 1997 or so in various ways. My wife uses Linux too, her dad uses linux, my mom uses Windows but open apps. So people do use and succeed with going open in various ways.

Hey Daniel, I think something got stuck with the worker process and it hasn't been running appropriately for a few days (!).

A petition to free Cycas CAD


There was this # software that always captured my attention but I haven't tried though. And although the website seems still updated the last version available is from the far 2008.

From the screenshot it seems build natively for Linux with the X11 libraries, it would be nice asking to owners if they are willing to open code. They could be also crowdfund the code as did by Blender.

Do you believe it is worth making an attempt with an online petition?

Playing around with EndeavourOS



 

I have been following # from episode 70. I am not a supporter but it is one of the podcast I listen weekly. And I have noticed, as many other similar podcast, that for them the deb based distro end with *buntu. And even if they did, on episode 72, an interview with Chris Lamb of # their approach hasn't change very much, and without Rocco probably has got even worst.

Now dear friends let me tell you an obviously that without Debian probably Ubuntu would never exist and let me also say that once you try Debian you never come back to Ubuntu. But the way you treat Debian and related project like # clearly show that you haven't done well your homework and for that still continue to speak just of *buntus.

I suggest you to try Debian in depth to understand well the project wholly not only on the technological part. I mean the approximations and commonplaces I heard constantly about the Debian project are quite unjustifiable.

Let me finish pointing out that your main sponsor uses Debian for its infrastructure...

Thanks

Not trying to diminish Debian at all, but I work for System76 and we use Ubuntu as the base for Pop!_OS. Ubuntu has packaged drivers for devices like NVIDIA cards that are not easy, especially for the average user, to install.
I love what the Debian project stands for, but it cannot always keep up with the demands of modern computers/users

Virtual Distro Hopping


 
Give a try to Sabayon, Calculate or Gentoo before settling with Debian. You may get surprised.
 
I am not even sure if Sabayon is still active as project, however I don't see the point to use Gentoo on a Virtual Machine with limited resources...
 
Would have liked to read about your experiences with Obarun. It is arch based and I used it only on bare metal. Install is pretty simple.

 
Look at this:

https://lizards.opensuse.org/2019/10/09/opensuse-wsl-images-in-obs/

At a certain point M$ has to stop selling licenses for developing because Devs can get tired of this behave when have plenty of LinuxOS for free and M$ doesn't want go against the devs like did in the 80's, 90's and at the beginning of the 2000. The only solution is an Open Source stack on top of sort kind of wrap around WSL toward exclusively Azure...

SVG support in GIMP


Dear @GIMP

I am not sure if this is the most appropriate space but I have a question.

#SVG support in #GIMP would be a really nice feature in terms of vector clipping mask and vector shapes on Canvas rather than with Gfig. I was wondering if hasn't been included for technical reason, or because considered useless, or something else...

Just curiosity...

Thanks

#gimp #floss #foss #opensource
 
Well, GIMP is a bitmap drawing program (raster), designed to handle arrays of pixels, while SVG is a vector format, a set of drawing primitives. Those are much different ways of drawing. If you want to edit SVG you really want to look at a vector drawing program like Inkscape instead.
 
Why vector layers would be useful in GIMP it is explained here.

Since the moment SVG is an open standard I just though that is natural implementing that on GIMP, however I am totally fine any other solution that can achieve the same result.

 

RMS did not fail!

How do I get which application is open for screens rather than for desktop?


Hi folks,

I am trying to figure out how to get which applications are open on a specific screen on a multi-monitor configuration on #Linux.

For example utility like #wmctrl ignores the condition of the two monitors and considers the desktop area just as larger (1920*2)*1080px.

Thanks!

Just a wild guess, would pstree show you an entry of screen and the applications listed beneath it?

The hidden issues of Devuan


Hi there,

I am using Devuan Testing as daily driver on a Virtual Machine every day as main desktop for almost everything and I am a bit concerned about something that might become a real issue.

For its entire cycle and even when Debian Buster was released at every update I have been having this output:

The following packages have been kept back:
  elogind libelogind0 libpam-elogind


These three packages that are fundamentals for Devuan haven't received an updated for at least one year, this is not really the best practice to make an operative system safe. This three packages are a vulnerability and make Devuan a distro unsafe to use on any scenario.

I hope they are doing to make something to improve the security of Devuan keeping these three packages updated and safes.
