I’m here to have some conversation, look for information and learn new things. Besides the Galician (Portuguese far from the north), I write in castellano, english et français.

Eu tenho uma conta em lemmy.ml (a instância principal e que mais federa) para seguir algum tema, poder votar e todo isso.

You can comment using an account in a different Peertube instance, even using another Fediverse service. But the experience depends on the federation between instances.

It is possible to access a Peertube video from a lemmy.ml account, using a browser. It is an example: https://lemmy.ml/post/563193

But you need to follow some steps.

The simplest way to interact in a Peertube video using Lemmy or Mastodon is using the video URL (you can use Sepia Search to look for videos across different instances) and paste it in the search bar of your Lemmy or Mastodon account.

You can also search for hashtags or text, but the content needs to be previously federated in some way that I don’t understand.

But it’s hard to imagine that it works that way.

Would it, then, be used to republish a comment when the content is accessed from other Fediverse platforms?

Although the link gives an error in the browser, it can actually be used to look for the comment. I used it here from Tusky for Android.

I had to copy the link. I can’t imagine what’s the context where the icon is used directly without leading to an error, because, anyway, browsing the Lemmy instance, when the Fediverse icon is clicked, a link is opened in a new tab with a 404 error. It’s an undesirable behavior.

Yes, thanks. Anyway I’ve seen that and I mentioned it.

If I try to open this comment in a new browser tab by pressing the Fediverse icon above, it redirects to https://lemmy.ml/comment/166757 that doesn’t exist.

Edit: After reading some answers I have understood that the link does exist, but not to be opened directly from a browser, but to access the answer from other Fediverse platforms. What doesn’t make sense is that if you press It from the Lemmy web interface it leads to a 404 error.

The correct address is https://lemmy.ml/post/241826/comment/166757 the same that is generated and copied to clipboard by pressing the icon in the form of links near the Fediverse icon.

It seems to be a shortcut to open the comment url. Specifically opens the full article but at the height of the comment from which the link was generated, by pressing the icon. There is a bug and the links are not being generated correctly, because they lack the part of the url that refers to the publication in which the comment has been made. I will now make a comment to have a practical example.

There’s some info in this YouTube channel. They speak Spanish but it also have subtitles.

I suppose a comment can be deleted or a user can be banned depending on who manages and moderates each community within an instance, apart from the rules (if any) that they establish in each case. It would be a problem of certain communities, which in others does not appear.

In regard to meat eating, I presume that the case would be given in a vegan thematic community, possibly with comments in an unconstructive attitude or out of context.

There can be the case that a community exists as a propagandistic platform in which no debate with discordant positions is allowed. It’s probably not the best practice, but there it is. You can also negatively evaluate publications, try to create new post introducing and argumenting your disconformity, or even disagree by not participating or blocking the community.

I think there are other communities that are not like this for now. There is also the option to participate in other instances or to host your own.

Ok. Thank you. Let’s try again!

I created my first Lemmy accounts in two instances hosted by people near me. I’ve found some problems to interact with people in other instances, except for lemmy.ml.

It could be some federation lack between instances.I don’t know.

The maintenance, support and moderation of the instanc are also important to choose it for the daily use.

Finally I created an account in lemmy.ml and it’s the only one I’m using now.

Bueno, claro, digo en el supuesto de haber derechos de autor. Habría que ver si las obras pasaron a dominio público y si no es así, tal vez se pueda encontrar alguna referencia al copyright consultando en internet el título de la obra y autor.

Pero a los de la copistería lo que les va a interesar es hacerte fotocopias, cobrarlas y punto. Ya te buscarás tú la vida con los pormenores legales.

Yes, it’s so easy and it’s well documented. You only need to read some documents about the prerequisites you need, launch the installer and follow the instructions to easily configure the service you want to put online.

If you need an easy way to try it, you can use Yunohost. It includes Mastodon and Pleroma packages.

Supongo que los libros con derechos de autor tendrán cláusulas que prohíben la copia, por lo que sería ilegal.

Aún así, si vas a una copistería es muy probable que no te pongan pegas y hagan las copias que desees.

I’m not enthusiastic about gaming or using modern equipment, so I have no experience coming directly to give you a solution, but I’ll tell you what steps I’d try to take.

Asking this question here can be a good start but we have to go further, which I understand you’re already doing. I guess at least you’ve also searched for forums, wikis or documentation, for example. That’s the beginning.

In the case of very new hardware, there are probably no solutions for these drawbacks or, if they exist, they are still difficult to implement. I don’t think I’m telling you anything new, because if you’re a regular user of Free Software, you must know what happens in these cases where the manufacturer armor its products with patents and proprietary software.

Here is where the main GNU/Linux distros should be selected, especially those most concerned about giving solutions to gamers, testing them and, if anything is missing, requesting the implementation of new features.

The most important thing would be to expose the case and request the solution directly to the manufacturer, always looking for more affected users, joining and demanding solutions getting strong from the community.

It’s not enough for a Swiss. Keep trying.
