ohh, wow, lemmy really needs to make that way easier, so subscribing and posting on other instances is made easier. I’m sure I won’t easily remember the right URL to get into the other instance community… Thanks a lot, I wasn’t aware of this way to access other instances communities…


Well, on every lemmy new instance announced, including this one, in order to subscribe into communities, or to post, I need to login, and the lemmy credentials of don’t work on them, so it looks to me I have to create a new account, :(


Can I ask why creating a new lemmy instance, rather than a new community. Instances are good for centralization, so, not a complain, however it imposes an additional account, :(


If LXQt (what I use) and KDE ever opt into this, it’ll be the time for me to prefer GTK. I do like Qt better, but I guess such is life. I do not think that’ll happen any time soon though.

The Qt source: https://www.qt.io/blog/monetizing-cross-platform-use-cases-faster-and-easier-with-qt-digital-advertising-platform

Not sure about the mobile KDE and apps, being mobile KDE the selected default environment for pine64, but I hope phones using KDE and non KDE Qt apps keep away from adds as well…

And not sure about independent Qt apps, like smplayer, cantata, and others. I really doubt this will come to GNU+Linux, but if so, then I guess there are choices, such as GTK apps, DE and toolkit…

Although the reddit comment indicates it’s misleading, because of being the commercial version of Qt, and KDE being free SW, that’s a blur area, I don’t know if being FOSS prevents being able to show adds. Perhaps the license might force to give an opt out option to the users, but again, I can’t tell that’s enforced by the freedoms enforced when using GPL. Also, other free SW apps, as the ones mentioned before, might not be KDE projects, and even if KDE chooses not to take advantage of adds, it might be non KDE developers do. Although not likely, this deserves paying attention on how this moves…


anyone aware which tracker[s] does ru.tk api uses?

To successfully use popcorn now a days, the API to use is ru.tk. I prefer to use rtorrent for torrents purposes, and I uesd to believe yts was the tracker popcorn uses, however I’ve found stuff on popcorn, using the ru.tk api, which can’t be found on yts. …


plain Vim with necessary extensions/plugins…


Well, by having different mods on the same community, with diverse thinking, then that makes it. The issue with having different communities for the same thing, is that people must be always keeping an eye on new communities, and if for some reason they don’t, they might miss news or dicussions they might be really interested in. Like the Librewolf example, I don’t see the need to have to subscribe to 2 Librewolf communities, the original one, and the one that would have been created by the Librewolf maintainer afterwords. Good think the Librewolf maintainer was allowed to be a moderator on the pre-existent one, :) But it was just a suggestion…


searx, but I do not self host. Currently lusing searx.be most of the time…


Not sure if you should request mod permission on https://lemmy.ml/c/electric_vehicles instead, :) Though that one seems to include hybrids and such…


Well, I would extend FF to all derivative browsers, particularly those oriented to privacy, like Librewolf on the desktop and Mull on Android. Their in essence their FF counterparts with privacy settings applied, and removing binary blobs (yes FF still include some)… But I guess those are even less known than FF itself, :(, though overall, they depend on FF being maintained and progressing, since those projects don’t develop a browser one their own…


If this materializes, is there any other signal forks, able to connect to signal servers for messaging, like molly? I remember reading about some, but I have always preferred molly.


Yey !!! Happy 2022 (if following Gregorian calendar that is) !!!

Ohh, no worries, and I did notice, but kept using it since I was setting it any ways long before I started using Librewolf, :) Not sure why FF changed it though, but I thought some might find the new setting useful (FF change took me by surprise). Thanks !



drawInTitlebar changed to inTitlebar

This is only FYI, and perhaps it was already found out by others. It so happens I got Librewolf upgraded to 95.0.2 just Today (it showed up on Artix - Universe repo on Monday on Tuesday). …


Well, an open ISA is ok, but it doesn’t mean the HW is open, furthermore, open != libre/free. That said, you can use an open ISA, like risc-v, and have a totally closed uArch, incluiding backdoors, non user processors, and such. Even if the uArch, design, and whether HLS code or the resultin RTL code are open, then there’s sysntehesis into layout, as well as a bunch of libraries, you don’t really know of, and might be including spying mechanisms, backdoors and such. On HW, and particularly semiconductors, it’s pretty hard to really know if it’s clean, ethical, non spying, and so on. For sure, it’s pretty hard to get really open HW, not to mention libre/free HW.

If we don’t produce SoCs/ASICs, it’s pretty hard to tell. But even if you do your our own design really open and clean, you can’t design everything, you trust on vendors IP. Furthermore you end up trusting as well the vendors libraries for the final synthesis.

That’s the important part of increasing the use of non profit and open IP and libraries, that although they don’t guarantee nothing obscure will be included, that helps a lot. In the end, on semis, I doubt it’ll be easy to stop having to trust what the final SoC/ASIC will include. A final thought, most ASICs/Socs makers are fabless, meaning they send their layouts to a 3rd party which creates the masks and final pieces of silicon. And some, if not most, also subcontract the routing and placing prior to deliver the final layout, in whatever format its delivered, to the contracted fab. All that introduces places where additional stuff can be added, whether libraries wise, or intentional…

Just saying. But I’m glad more people gets more aware of the need on open HW at least, and having an open ISA is as good as any other starting point. Sadly, most advances are not done for non profitable organizations, but designing and building SoCs/ASICs really require capital.

I still would prefer risc-v based products though.


yey, thanks !



I think I’ve read something, however, as mentioned, that seems far. pine64 just launched recently its arm new pro phone for developers (not consumers yet), which improves some specs, as to to be doing major changes, like adopting new ISA, but yes, I seem to remember reading about their interest, and perhaps something happening underneath, but I guess not their focus at the moment with the recent launch of several arm based products…


Sadly, I’m not waiting for a risc-v android. I’m waiting for a risc-v pinePhone, and that seems really far right now.

yeah, I’m afraid web sites will all be white/clear now, or break the site theming somehow :(

I can disable RFP, but then I need to figure out what useragent to use, since that’s provided by RFP… Is there an easy way to find the right useragent to use? I remember if I just use Libewolf latest, extensions get broken, and perhaps what I need is FF latest version, though no sure what would be the exact useragent. But I might have to disable FRP then, I’ll have to see how things look, when the new release becomes available, :(

And I prefer totally disabling geo location as well, though that whether or not disabling RFP…

What perhaps would be somehow more important short term is finding out the right useragent each release. So I can set it up, without setting RFP…

Thanks !


If I keep geo location disabled, then I’m more fingerprintable… OK, I think I’ll keep having geo location disabled though, I want to keep that piece of privacy…

The dark mode override being depricated is sad. Theming is always complex for FF and derivatives alone, and if keeping RFP enabled (which is a must now a days) then it might be theeming gets wrong under RFP, but I’ll have to see the effect once upgrading. I’m waiting for artix (universe) to upgrade…

Thanks a lot !




I think that was asked, and I also believe answered on the reddit comments provided
