Motile 14" Performance Laptop Ryzen 3: Debianized!


🎊 🎊 I finally # this latop even though as dual-boot... 🎊 🎊

The difference of responsiveness between # vs # is embarrassing for the latter... Recently I am using W10 at work after 4 years of macOS (👎) and I found it so unfriendly that is incredible that actually M$ is paying the people that created it... 😱

I mean at least at # the ones that are actually paying to work on it are very few... 😜

Anyway I am so tired of anything else that is not # that I am thinking to throw on the garbage also #.

POP!_os is a convoluted OS that try to fix the mess-up of # against #, the result is unfortunately inconsistent, and this leads just to a one and only conclusion... You had better to use directly #.

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.

 

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!

@">Anadam :-D, thanks for those information, meanwhile I took a look at the equipment used by @DasGeek and it is pretty expensive... 😱
 
Yeah, one doesn't need brand new gear nor needs to spend a bundle.

 

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!

#opensource #gnu #debian #ubuntu #xfce4 #linuxdesktop
 
Just a wild guess, would pstree show you an entry of screen and the applications listed beneath it?
 
I have to test it out... but thanks anyway...

Gah, too bad. But thanks for trying!
 
I know, it is a shame... :(

 

Trackers


Hi folks,

I am preparing a new article about tracking because another article I found the previous weak, however I don't find any official documentation about the search settings and use of #Tracker on #Gnome3.

I am speaking about this:
https://feborg.es/settings-new-search-panel/

Is anyone of you able to land me to any official documentation?

Thanks in advance!

Distro personal crisys (an open letter to myself... )


 
@Debacle Honestly I haven't understood yet the difference between the two but I think they work almost the same... 😅
 
@Debacle

Thanks for sharing that video, it was very interesting.

 

System76 firmware update


Since my first (and unique) System76 laptop purchase I have never had a kind word for this company. I have been always complaining about their policy to support just Ubuntu... However it seems they did some steps toward to non Ubuntu or Pop_os users, in fact I was able to update the firmware just with a usb iso (pop_os!) in demo mode and everything worked totally fine as described in their documentation.

At least for one time System76 were been able to let me say something positive about you! 🍻

Fine, so we have to separate all this matter in computers/laptops that are Linux friendly and the ones that are Ubuntu friendly, in this scenario I select the former ones... So it means that Ubuntu friendly != Linux friendly, this companies must be more clear to avoid confusion on their customers.

The pointlessness of the FSF endorsed distros based on Ubuntu...


 
Carrying water for software owners is a compromise. Debian hosting non free software is a waste of resources that should go to making better free software. Allowing someone to set up a tent to install non free software outside of a FSF event, as long as the person dresses up as a devil, is not such a compromise, it's just another way of telling people that non free software gives an evil third party control of your computer. I think that Debian did a better job of shielding users from non free software than Ubuntu did, but they can do better still by dropping it all on the floor.

of course it is a compromise. it is just an acceptable compromise. but it is a compromise. if it werent, then “as long as the person dresses up as a devil” would be irrelevant. the “deal” and the “compromise” are practically the same thing. “if you dress like this and stay out of the room, you can be part of our event whereas you werent before.” you might as well say that as long as you put a big warning on cigarettes, it isnt a compromise to allow them to be sold instead of banned. (im not against the move from the fsf, but its a very silly argument that it isnt a compromise.)
