Natron


This is just a thought but I think I will learn Natron!

I think with #Natron I can fill my motion graphics needs quicker than with #Blender. The good news is that it is packed in #PopOS directly by #System76.

Let me see if I can achieve quickly what I usually do with another well known closed software...

For the ones that don't know Natron, check the website out to see how cool it is:

Btw, Natron is looking for devs and a maintainer.

@François Revol

I don't think I can help with the coding but I'll try to advertise it as soon as I can get some decent stuff with it...

Not all the printers vendors play nice with the Linux kernel...

Still About Graphic Design Applications


I have finally found the time to finish this article which takes a look about other graphic design tools available on POP!

Show Desktop Button without Gnome-Shell extension


This time I recycled an old trick to have a working show-desktop button on POP!/Gnome3 that works and presumably won't break with the next release.

My spicy comments are at the end of the article... 🙄

Good Reading!

Don't worry man and keep posting!

Just FYI...

I updated the article pointing out the risks of disabling Tracker permanently 😉



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!

Thanks to all


So far I saw I have an average of 100 visit per article, I supposed that mostly came from the Fediverse/Federation rather than pop!-planet forum!

As you could understood I am posting from a Fediverse platform Writefreey, and that is a very elegant blogging system. I want point out that every time I post an article it is just for sharing my experience, I am not tracking anyone and I am not receiving whatsoever any kind of benefit if you click on that article, not even the hosting.

Everything is totally free in the pure spirit of free-software and shared knowledge, as the good old time...

You might also directly following my articles adding my Snopyta account: @gnuserland@write.snopyta.or but I cannot reply or interact with you from that account.

If you are a POP! user or jut passionate about Graphic Design and Geek Design on Linux it would be cool if you interact with me when I post something on Friendica!

Have a great Sunday day!

This is the second time I have heard the term Fediverse/Federation. I am guessing that that means the various de-centralized online platforms that contrast against centralized platforms like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, etc. I will have to check out Writefreey and see what other platforms are out there in the Fediverse, assuming that what I am thinking is accurate.

About the Gnome-shell extensions


While I am not finishing yet my post installation I have to address the many gaps provoked by the gnome-shell extensions!

#System76 I know you are reading me but you can't avoid me eternally, read carefully this article and take action!

Better pagination


I 've just learned how better organize my blog, I have to say that #writeFreely is really pretty cool!

I also discovered that anyone should be able to follow directly the blog through my account:

@Gnuserland

However it seems that just the pinned articles are seen by the fediverse... 🤔
#writeFreely @Gnuserland Articles Blog

Yep! Better readable! 👍

Welcome back to home POP!_OS


There you are!

I finished my installation series and soon I am going to start my desktop series; unfortunately #Gnome3 has some design choice that I need to fix because my behavior.

I've just started, stay tuned! 😉

This is very interesting because it can be used in all the Debian distro based! COOL!

Thank you sir, you are very welcome!



Never give up – “Final Round”


As promised the blog article to narrate how was so difficult achieve an encrypted lvm partion on two disks on my *System76 Serval Laptop*, while it is so easy in an other major distro... :roll_eyes:

You did it man! Congrats again! 🍺

That level of knowledge of the boot process, with all its moving parts, plus disk encryption, puts you in the 0.01% of Gnusers.

Congrats!

Thank you man... If you had time to read the blog everything is born as a challenge... I am not even sure to encrypt the disks but the fact is: I want use my computer as I want! I don't understand why people must put this limitation!

In this case my opinion is the installer is not designed to make whatever you want like the Debian installer, because from the beginning it wasn't designed for that, no one took the time to check the installer in advanced mode and noticing there was a serious bug in there. Eventually It targets newbies because this is the audience of the Elementary OS (and POP!_OS), and one of the Elementary Team works also for System76.

Targeting just newbies isn't a smart move, however all the corporations that decides to invest heavily in Linux have the same behavior just targeting only newbies... 🤔



VICTORY!


And eventually I was able to enable the LVM and the Encryption, a blog post will be available soon!

The article is almost ready, it took me really a lot to reproduce everything properly... 👎



Never give up - "Round Two"


And eventually I was able to extended the encrypted root partion adding a second disk:

I just figured out that I might be able to achieve what I am trying to do from the beginning...

I just understood that I have to decrypt the partition with luksopen and then operate as a normal LVM, it is a bit tricky but feasible...

I found a guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ResizeEncryptedPartitions
