avidemux? mpv (the thumbnails may be possible through the config…)?

Another interesting read is this write up on User Domestication

If you actually plan on posting things?

Use a different email account to connect to each one, and don’t use that account for anything else.

Maybe run the browsers in a container of some sort? Create the account through a VPN so Twitter things you are in France, for example, where privacy laws are a little stricter, and you have “the right to be forgotten”. Somebody else will have better answers than me, but it is an interesting question.

Rufus and Unetbootin work fine as well.

I’ve only ever used Etcher on Windows.

Formatting can be handled with gparted and a few other utilities like gnome-disks. Some distros, like MX and openSUSE come with their own software that you can find on other distros.

I know about them, yes. if you don’t use Trakt you can still use the app and that takes care of point 2 and maybe point 1. It scapes info from places like IMDB, TVDB and TMDB so of course there will be some tracking.

Maybe MuPDF? Use the browser? Okular? I am not a Sumatrapdf fan either.

Librera Pro and PDF Viewer Plus in f-droid

seriesguide on fdroid?

Adding an Atom feed with Gemfeed ⭐

There are a few prequisites for this to work:


Here are the commands you will need to run on your Pi:

$ sudo apt-get install python3-pip python3-urllib3 $ pip install feedgen

Go to where you want to put the gemfeed file, like ~/bin and wget it:

$ wget $ chmod +x

Now you get to run that sucker!

$ ./ -b YOURDOMAIN/gemlog -d /home/pi/gemini/gemlog/ -a YOURNAME -t ‘A TITLE FOR YOUR GEMLOG’

It should spit out an atom.xml file:

Generating feed “YOURTITLE”, which should be served from gemini://YOURDOMAIN/gemlog/atom.xml

That’s all! Make note of that address. Whenever you add a new post, run the command and presto!

You can add that link to GUS or CAPCOM if you want.

no Hugo needed

here is my guide also on RPI gemini://

Amazing work

have a read here and then you can browse some capsules.

gemini:// is a great annotated directory of capsules.

I use Ariane on my phone and Amfora on my computer. Sometimes Lagrange.

My capsule is here gemini:// but if you click around I also have a set of capsules that I like to visit on there.

I have seen this cartoon all over the place…and I just got it.

A quick guide for getting your Gemini Capsule running on a Raspberry Pi

Just wanted to share this sloppy little guide on getting a gemini capsule running on a pi. …

Looks like they prefer they/them. The link in the article will lead you to their mastodon profile where you will find a pinned toot with her home address which I find…peculiar.

I use the Linux Zoom client as a teacher 35 hours a week. It is quite annoying. There are options to turn off the full screen mode when someone shares their screen. What distro are you on? I install directly from the website. My complaint is that it sometimes crashes when I am moving around breakout rooms which can be awkward if students are looking for me. Zoom in general is bad when it comes to screen real estate! Horrible even!

I’ve been using OpenBoard for awhile. I like it. I never used swiping so i t doesn’t bother me that it isn’t present. I do like being able to scroll with the space bar and the long-backspace option (hold and swipe to erase longer passages).

All of the choices mentioned here work quite well. I use ghostwriter (well, I use just a text editor most of the time for speed) because it is available in the repos on debian without adding an extra repo. Typora is very nice but it is a little heavier. I vote to give each one a trying out and see which one you like best.

looking for a post [TOMT]

I recall a post, maybe here, maybe on reddit, maybe just a link to a blog. It included a breakdown of why it isn’t always ideal to suggest certain alternatives. In particular, it mentioned problems about duckduckgo and protonmail. It is possible that it was a link to a github repo. Can anyone point …

I could switch and have tried. the last time I tried a KaiOS phone and took the time to strip all the Google stuff and WhatsApp and make it closer to a dumb phone. Then for work reasons it became a little bit of a necessity to get a smartphone again.

Making a temporary switch to a feature phone is a fun exercise that I recommend BUT it takes time to find a suitable phone. Nokia phones are good but either have KaiOS (which is usable but slow when it comes to switching languages and switching between caps and predictive text) or Series 30+ which nowhere near as good as the previous Nokia OS.

if to are patient and want to drop some cash on a rather different device, the Mudita Pure should be interesting. The OS will be made open source upon release too.

Search Selector Reset

Pretty basic question. During my phone setup I clicked too fast and chose Google but I want to change the search engine of the unmovable search bar on my screen. I hope I am being clear because it seems like an easy task but I cannot. Everywhere possible I have set it to duckduckgo but that damn sea…

Which distro has the best/most attractive default colour scheme/theme?

I’ve been a GNU/Linux user for about 14 years and have wasted hours (OK, probably days) ricing and customising (you’ve all done the same I think). Laziness has set in, I don’t plan on switching distros anytime soon, I use MX which looks fine. Just wanted to know what you all think: Which distro has …

Share to clipboard gone after disabling apps

I disabled the suggested apps in the “Smartphone Hardening Guide for normal people with non rooted phones” and everything is fine except now I cannot share to clipboard or share to copy which was present before. Not a huge deal but is there a way get that back? …
