That sounds aweful. I have used it since 2016 without any such issues. Did you file a bug report?


Where is Shotwell ratings stored and general photo library management strategies?

I have a system for sorting my photos using the ratings feature. It came about me trying to sort out the insane mess created by phone photography and automagic camera uploads have on your photo library. I needed a quick way to go through marking photos in order to sort out what has value or not. …


Firefox 87 on Android - its rad!

Just wanted to share my recent experience with Firefox on mobile. …


Very cool! Might send in something simple!

Thanks for sharing :)


Because capitalism is not governed. It relies on the market making sound green choices - which is not happening any day soon as companies relies on short term profits.

Also, this is my take on it. High-tech solutions have never solved anything, they just bring other issues. Vertical farming is a resource intensive joke, shutting down nuclear plants trying to replace them with wind and solar is futile and frankly childish. The amount if maintenance to cover for the enormous amount of fossil fuel dependent panels and wind turbines is insane if we intend to have a reliable high output. Wind and solar have its place but its not to a good option to power whole cities - rather, single or a limited number of households in close vicinity to such power sources might be an option.

There have to be a reformation on how we live our lifes rather than more stuff, more tech - and I’m not saying rewind the tape 300 years to “simpler” times - but rather a fusion of now and then. We need the small scale villages and local food production of yester years, but also the communication and logistics of now. Et cetera… The reduction of noncontributing cities is a must…

Yeah, I’ll just stop my self there because the whole subject and issue is so large a nuanced there will never be an end to the ranting.

Shots fired, give it to me!



Very nice writeup on your setup! Thanks for sharing, I’ll dive deeper into it tonight.


What!? Are you telling me more stuff and tech will not solve our ecological destruction and resource depletion? Shocker!


It’s not a bad idea to do that. Something that urks my lazyness is when I go cd Do [tab] and fish promptly gives me the option to chose either Documents or Downloads.

Maybe in my case where I’d rather not mix abbreviations I’ll remap my muscle memory from Downloads to fetched or something like that in order to avoid the do in downloads and documents.


Reorganizing $HOME

I’m looking to restructure my home folder. Have for a long time used the standard XDG user directory structure ($HOME/{Desktop,Documents,Downloads...}) and it has become a mess. Also the capitalized directory names are inconvenient for a multitude of reasons. …

#1 Budgie is rather lovely - has some polish. But…

When you say you are looking for simple, modern and customizable it opens up a whole heap of questions.

Simple to me is a tiling workflow. Overlapping windows as a rule don’t make much sense to me - very clunky way of going about things.

Modern - what is modern to you?

Customizable - which parts of the thing are you looking to customize?

I also use mailbox.org, but Drew DeVaults words are law so Midagu might be my next jump. Not super hot on the documentation on mailbox


Plasma is bombastic, have been on it for a few weeks now rocking Krohnkite Kwin script for tiling magic.

More and more things impress me to the extent that me, a previously not-very-keen-on-qt-guy want to nuke my SSD and start fresh with all things KDE.

I chose to make my Plasma minimal and remove visual cruft, I was given the choice to set it up as a regular old tiling window manager. That’s the beauty of it. Also enjoy how great GTK things work in Plasma, much more fitting compared to the other way round.


There is no one in this post claiming the FSF or the GNU project is evil?

Only an examination of what the FSF does.


The author makes me want to smack the handle of my hammer on a nail. The anti-hammer hammer.


It does doesn’t it? But I’ve come to a conclusion that it would have been much better with a 4:3 display since most of the games that will run on it are of that era.

If I bought one I’d run RRVL, basically void Linux that boots into RetroArch. Mmmh yummy. https://github.com/valadaa48/retroroller

There is another RK3326 device coming, looks like ugggh but it checks all the boxes for a well thought out retro handheld: https://obscurehandhelds.com/2021/02/the-gameforce-rk3326-handheld-looks-like-a-gba-descendant/


Men vad fan är det här för skräp?


Okok, the GPL of course. How did I not think about that? ;)

Last release was 2007 - what else tangible have they produced?


What has the FSF accomplished?

Honest question, I don’t know a whole lot about the FSF. Heard the announcement from RMS and a snippet on the dangers of webapps and such. But do they introduce solutions to these issues regarding proprietary software or mostly point fingers and tell us what’s dangerous to use? …


Yeah, quickly came about Tic-80/after this post. I like it more as a platform to put my eggs into so to speak but Pico-8 for the the number of games available.

Found this series, a slow, almost too slow introduction into coding games on Tic-80 in lua: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvOT6zBnJyYF3FzmfXz2QXMA8xk7JHA_b

Edit: Not very keen on the resolution of TIC-80 (240x136 (1.76:1)). Odd choice when they could have gone for 3:2, 4:3 or true 16:9 aspect ratio at least.


Pico-8! @ Samhällsonanin

A day into it - very fun, especially with a proper game-pad! Check it out or don’t. Not very many mentions of Pico-8 on Lemmy so I figure it has its place…


I’m a CIS man, tall, rather slender. I feel unsafe among men depending on the context. Violence is one if our strong sides. Combine that with a lot of insecurities and a need to front = quick escalation of violence and mischief.

This does not mean I walk around in constant terror, but rather carrying an awareness that people born with penises are statistically the guilty ones and everyone else are their victims.

Sad reality. Wanna fight about it!? (jokes)


Just what I needed and have been thinking about for a couple of days. Want to make a super thin titlebar for use with Kröhnkite.


Restic, much interesting :)

Loop Hero and a GOG experience @ Samhällsonanin

I wrote this little note on my website on the feeling of purchasing a DRM-free game from GOG. Now what I wonder, not knowing much about GOG - why isn’t GOG larger than it is, what’s the catch? Because this experience was rad…
