Cake day: may. 18, 2021


I used to edit the source code of gnome-screenshot in order to remove this cheesy flash BS but later they did something to the libraries to force that crap on the users, so I uninstalled that and moved to scrot. As I like to say often - the person who will impose their vision of how things should work and happen on my computer hasn’t been born yet. That was the only time I edited a code. Oh, wait, no, there’s one more - I edited the xkb symbols files for BG and US layouts and those were originally written in C++ but they weren’t compiled.

Yeah… thanks, but no, thanks. LOL I already tried 6.0. Here’s why I’m staying with 5.19 for a long time to come: https://lemmy.ml/post/576205/comment/327710

Holy krap, that’s a disaster! Kernel 6 with the most bugged desktop in the world of linux - it’s not gonna end well for some of the users. Kernel 6 turns off and on the LAN card whenever it feels like it, with that kernel X doesn’t want to start most of the time (especially when resuming from suspend), add to all that the desktop environment full of never fixed bugs at every corner (so to speak) and you have a recipe for a disaster.

I use this extension. Once you make your settings, it translates automatically without your interference. https://addons.mozilla.org/bg/firefox/addon/traduzir-paginas-web/

I know that option but it works selectively. Definitely never worked for YouTube (I had to use an extension to disable PiP) and it never worked for any news sites, such as NBCNews. That setting is disabled and yet:

I know some of us linux users use SMPlayer not just for movies but also for watching YouTube videos on it. If you watch just one or two videos a day, that's fine, but if you watch everything through it, it can be tedious to copy every single link, then open SMPlayer and open the "add link" function. About a year ago or so I discovered this cool extension which is intended primarily for browsers only but in reality it can be used for any program, probably even for PC games, altough I haven't tried that yet. :) The extension's name is "Open With" and it does exactly what the name suggests - opens a page with another application that can accept URL addresses. It sends the address to another application which is what makes it perfect to watch videos with your favorite video player. All you need to do is install the extension, open its settings and follow the instruction there to make it work. It's best if you put the python file inside ~/.mozilla, so that you don't have to worry about the file ever being moved somewhere else. The extension is supposed to work on both Linux and Windows but I've never been able to make it work on Windows. After that it's pretty simple - click "Add browser", navigate to smplayer.desktop or vlc.desktop in /usr/share/applications (local applications also works, if you have placed a .desktop file there), navigate to the icon for your video player and that's it! Now you can open YouTube in Firefox, right click on any video and select "Open With" --------> your video player. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/165ea0ea-4643-47b7-b2ae-4290760dd91f.png)

Snap, flatpak, even appimages don’t always work, so all 3 suck. Everything I have ever installed from snap or flatpak has never ever run (click the .desktop file and the program doesn’t run), sometimes even appimages won’t run, whereas anything compiled from source runs just fine 99% of the time. I hope that the Arch team NEVER even considers adding these 3 garbages, otherwise I’ll have to look for another distro, which is gonna be extremely painful.

Care to share its name for about:config?

It would be better if they added an option to completely disable PiP cuz I hate that thing.

IDK about that year but yesterday was my Day of the Linux desktop. After 7 years of dual booting, I finally had enough of Microshit’s crap and deleted Windows and everything related to it - ISO files, activators, Win installation and converted all the drives to ext4, to make sure there’s no trace left of that idiotic OS.

That gaming revolution wouldn’t have happened, if they hadn’t made SteamOS Arch-based first, bc gaming on Arch is a lot easier than on any other distro.

I’ve tried many times to run games with lutris and it never worked - no game ever ran, they only spit tons of errors. So I found a better and easier way for myself - simply put the DXVK files in the directory with the exe file and run the game. That’s it - it works in 90% of the cases which is a lot higher percentage than trying with lutris or POL.

Right click on the exe, go to “open with…” and select “Wine Windows Program Loader”. This will set WWPL to be used for all EXE files. From there all he needs to do is to double click the EXE and it will install just like in Windows - no need for overrated disasters like Lutris or POL.

Recently pamac-classic was finally fixed and I was able to finally install pacman 6. Turns out that the paralel download function is even better than I thought. :D The update process happens so fast that I can’t even see what’s happening in the terminal. :D Speaking of which, I also noticed that the process “mkinitcpio -P” happens about twice faster than before. :D :D Bottom line - I love pacman 6! :D

From all DEs I’ve ever tried, only Cinnamon met my needs and requirements - highly customizable (almost limitless) and also this is the only DE that can run apps from any other DE whereas the other desktops can’t brag about the same.

How to add youtube to FF push notifications?
I was looking for an extension that would show me a notification one any of the channels I'm subscribed for uploads a new video but I couldn't find any. Then I found that Firefox has "Notifications" setting but youtube isn't in the list and IDK how to add it. Any suggestions on how to do that?

It’s not hard, I’ve done it several times - especially when packing a large archive at maximum compression with p7zip (and the flags -mx --mmt=8; -mx means maximum compression level and mmt=8 means “use 8 threads”) - 30GB or larger. RAM goes 15-18 GB, the CPU goes at 100%. What’s interesing is that if I do the same in Windows, my PC will literally die and become useless whereas 100% CPU in Linux and I’m still able to use my PC normally as if I’m not doing anything. :D Which is why Linux is my main OS.

There is but it’s not easy. I’m using uBlock Origin’s filters to hide content in different websites and forums. For instance, this filter hides content from blocked users in that forum: www.kaminata.net##.post.has-profile:has([id^=“post_hidden”][class=“ignore”]) But as I said, it’s difficult to do it on your own. In order to have this filter I asked in uBlock Origin’s reddit and they gave me the filter. You’ll have to ask them to register here on lemmy.ml for them to see how it works in order to give you a working filter.

I just tried my theme on Thunderbird and it works perfectly! Which IMO is a good thing for what Mozilla have done - thus we won’t have to create a separate theme for Thunderbird. :D

I already have userchrome.css. And that code did it! Thanks very much! :D

FF 89 - remove cyan border around the URL bar?
Does anyone know a way to remove or at least change the color of that cyan border around the URL bar? I'd prefer to remove it but if that's not possible, a change of color would be nice. ![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/fmLhOaPnMo.png)

Octopi - how to make it display only packages waiting for update?
Hi. I wanna make octopi behave as close as possible to what pamac was, meaning that I want it to display only the packages with available updates. Atm it displays all installed packages and on top of that it ignores the pacman.conf feature "ignorepkg" and displays waiting updates for packages that I've added to ignorepkg. So, what I need help with is: 1. How to make octopi display only packages waiting for updates? 2. The above but WITHOUT displaying new versions for packages that are in the ignorepkg list.

I guess I’m one of the few who like the new shape of tabs. I only missed the compact mode but I found a way (on the internet) how to bring it back. Then I restored my old theme and uploaded it to Mozilla for sharing and I’m happy. :D Here’s my theme: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dark-and-brownish-theme/

I switched to Linux 6 years ago when I first heard that Windows 7’s support will be ended. So I figured I’d better start using Linux, so that I’ve gotten used to it when Windows 7 dies. In time I found out that Linux does many things better and faster and so my love for Linux kept growing. Nowadays I do have a dual boot with Windows 7 but I keep the Win for only 1 thing: to reprogram the G-keys on my keyboard whenever I need (the software for that works only in Windows) which happens once in 6 months or so.

Funny thing is that when I first switched to Linux (Mint), there was a weird problem that caused the distro to think my 1 TB HDD was a “Picture CD” and what’s even funnier is that none of the linux gurus I asked could ever solve the problem. Eventually I solved it myself and started using Linux normally without restrictions.

I was finally able to fix my profile and now I can return to Firefox. The thing I enjoy the most is that I don’t need to use Firefox Color anymore in order to have a dark or dark-ish interface. The purple interface is hot too!

Looks like nVidia are gonna headshot AMD… again. :D

Octopi doesn’t get along with GTK, so I avoid using it.

It’s out, yes, but updating pacman broke pamac-classic, so I’ve restored from a backup image and I’ve disabled updates for pacman and all packages related to package management (just in case) until the problem is solved. I’m using pamac-classic as just a visual update notifier. After the update of pacman pamac-classic wouldn’t start (doesn’t show up in tray) and without it I can’t know when there’s an update available, so I did the only thing I could - restored from backup and disabled updates for anything related to package management.

I downloaded hexchat, added the server address for libera.chat and at first it seems to be connected but then for unknown reason the remote server disconnects me. Any ideas?

I’ve tried that (clean profile) when FF was v86. Mediafire still wouldn’t let me in, that’s how I discovered it was a browser problem and not an extension problem.

Sounds good. Gamivo and kinguin did let me in but mediafire still doesn’t. Unfortunately ever since they disabled the feedback feature, I have no way to report this problem to them and my only hope is that employees of Mozila might be reading this community here.

Firefox mediafire: https://i.imgur.com/kJUBHiH.png

Google Chrome mediafire: https://i.imgur.com/QVyjZmZ.png

Mediafire is my secondary online backup for stuff and until Mozilla fix that problem with mediafire, for me there’s no reason to use Firefox. Don’t think I enjoy using Chrome (or Chromium), though, or that I’m hating and trolling Firefox. I’m not. But for the moment only Chrome works the way I need + it has extensions Firefox doesn’t have yet. Secondly: Firefox doesn’t recognize the instagram images as images whereas a Chrome extension does and I download and/or search them on TinEye a lot. But the moment these issues are fixed in Firefox, I will return to that browser. The reason I have subscribed for the Firefox community here is that I’m waiting for the version that will have these issues fixed. Hopefully until then someone would have written an extension to replace the removed function from the context menu - “view image details”.

Gamivo and Kinguin, mostly. Also mediafire. Mediafire keeps saying “this form has been idle for too long”. All the browsers that have some kind of track blocking have this problem with these sites, regardless of the engine. Only Chrome and Chromium don’t have that feature and I have absolutely no problems to login to my profile.

Sounds… disappointing, really. While the feature of track blocking sounds appealing at first, that feature is the main reason I abandoned Firefox (after 15 years of using it) and all FF-like browsers that have it. More and more websites stop functioning properly with tracking blocked and I can’t login to my profile. With these particular sites I have nothing to worry about tracking but unfortunately even with disabled tracking protection, they still refuse to let me log in. It’s unlikely that the websites would remove the tracking functions, so until the developers of FF and FF-like browsers find a way to circumvent this problem with logging in, I don’t see a reason for me or anyone else to use such a browser.

There’s no power in the Universe that can make me say the exclamation about the Jebus.

I was just looking for a way to report a spammer. This user is shitspamming all communities with the same content - oriflame crap. Here’s a screenshot and also a link to his profile: https://i.imgur.com/WwbDPoG.png https://lemmy.ml/user/28192 I can’t find a way to block/ignore him, so that I don’t see his posts (like on Twitter), so my only hope is to post here and hope for the best. :)

This is spam, if anyone knows how to report it, do so. I’m still learning lemmy’s functions plus I haven’t been able to find a “report post” function.

Btw, is there are any approximate date for the release of 6.0?

Small problem with applying themes to the website
I noticed that when a theme ("Darkly", in my case) is applied after clicking "save" and then the user clicks somewhere else, for instance on "Communities", the page becomes white again. One must refresh the page for the dark theme to be applied and become permanent. It's not a big deal to me but someone could think the themes are not working.

Sounds good! I was thinking about something similar a few months ago but the Arch community isn’t exactly very open minded to suggestions, so I gave up posting it in the forum.

I’ve limited the down/up speed in the programs that have this feature. But the internet browsers don’t have it and it’s their speed I’m trying to limit.

I’ll try and see what I can find bc the most of these things were done in a long periods of time and I’m not sure what is still findable. The “View image details” in particular you can see for yourself that it’s missing. Simply open any image (except from Instagram - Firefox doesn’t detect these correctly), right click it and you’ll se there’s no such an option. There’s only “Inspect” from which you can get the URL but there’s no more the additional window where you can see image dimensions, size or just click “save as…”.

The disappearing interface bug that was never fixed: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1536396

The anti-tracking function that causes some websites not to let you in - try logging into your mediafire account. It doesn’t always happen but when it does, it will say “this form was idle for too long” and that’s it. Eventually you’ll have to change the browser in order to login.

The disabled function - you can see that one for yourself as well. Simply open the menu, click “Help” and then “Feedback”. You will see this: https://i.imgur.com/NjvwTjm.png It’s like that for about a year, probably longer.

The other removed features - such as status bar and disabling updates are clearly visible by anyone, so I’m skipping these.

As for the war against adblockers (mostly), here’s an example of my about:config (I still have Firefox but it’s not my default browser anymore): https://i.imgur.com/UEIaAcf.png This was my way to disable addons removal - setting url addresses as bc Microzilla had blocked many addons (adblockers included) for unknown reasons and when that was implemented with a browser update, I turned out with a browser stripped off of half of its addons. Even an addon I’ve been using for years (previously known as Speed Dial, now known as GroupSpeedDial) was removed and marked as “dangerous” (a complete bullsh*t, ofc, there’s nothing dangerous about it).

Thanks. :) Seeing that there are two votes here for wondershaper, I decided to try that one first. I did read the instruction in github but since I’ve never used it before, I can’t be sure if what I did was right. I wanted it to remember the setting permanently, so I figured it would be best to save the setting in its empty wondershaper.conf file (in /etc/systemd). At the moment there are no new updates available, so I’ll have to wait until a new update arrives in order to test it. Or, if I’m not bothering you, you can tell me if this content of /etc/systemd/wondershaper.conf is sufficient to work: -a enp0s25 -d 31000 -u 31000

My LAN card’s name is enp0s25.

Edit: apparently I’m not doing it right. I found a way to test it with one of my large files on Google Drive (after reboot) and despite my setting of 31000 KB/sec., it still downloads at a higher rate than that - 33000+ KiB. According to Digital Storage, 31000 KB/sec = 30273.44 KiB. That means I’m doing it wrong.

I’m using trizen. IDK how the other helpers do things, but when there’s an update from the official repo, trizen seems to be passing the task to pacman automatically which is the reason I like it. Recently, after having some PGP keys problem, someone told me to try yay and that it supposedly imports keys automatically but it didn’t, so I uninstalled it.

Limit the download speed from within the OS?
Hi, guys. I'm wondering if there's any way to limit the download speed from within Arch? I have made settings for that in the router CP but they don't seem to work bc Arch is completely ignoring them and keeps downloading with the full bandwidth it can get. The thing is that our IPTV is from another provider which is why I need to leave some bandwidth for the TV. When I'm downloading something directly (meaning from FTP or TCP), even if it's just for a fraction of the second, the TV dies instantly. That's why I need to limit the download speed somehow - preferably from within Arch.

[suggestion] Alphabetical sorting
Hi. Can you make the list of communities (https://lemmy.ml/communities) to be able to be sorted alphabetically? I wanted to view all of them alphabetically but when I clicked "Name", nothing happened. Alphabetical sorting should include ascending and descending order and that applies for the other options too - number of subscribers, users per month, posts and comments.
