Trending packages?
Is there a script to see the trending packages with the data from [pkgstats]( or some other way?

How to fix dependency error on Pop!_OS
## Problem A few days ago, i wanted to update my system, but run into the following error: ``` user@pop-os:~$ sudo apt upgrade Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done Reading state information... Done You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these. The following packages have unmet dependencies: gir1.2-mutter-10 : Depends: libmutter-10-0 (= 42.2-0ubuntu1pop1~1656366415~22.04~8e50951) but 42.3-1ubuntu1pop1~1658401497~22.04~928bf97 is installed E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution). ``` Trying to upgrade using the Pop!_Shop application failed as well. The shop just crashes a moment after starting the update process. The recommended `apt --fix-broken install` doesn't work as well, "too many errors". ## Solution I found this [reddit post]( describing the same problem. The [first answer]( contains a solution that worked for me: ```sh sudo dpkg --configure -a sudo apt --fix-broken install # then of course sudo apt upgrade ``` I thought to share this here, so we don't have to leave the fediverse to fix this problem.

Microsoft shutting down freedom — again
Microsoft created PLUTON, the next gen TPM chip. And now it’s possible to ban devices which don’t run these locked down operating systems.

Snap actually sucks. This isn't even a meme.
Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap. Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues. * Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work * I get *notifications* for pending updates * Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.

Pop OS and 5.1 surround audio is messed up
I have Logitech's Z506 surround speakers and I run the latest version of Pop OS. I noticed that when 5.1 analog output is selected through Pop OS's audio settings, the order of speakers is messed up: for example front center is suddenly rear left, subwoofer is rear right and center is rear left. When 5.0 output is selected, the order of speakers is all right. What makes this more weird is that when I used `speaker-test -c6 -twav`, every speaker is just fine. Could something be wrong with PipeWire?

Security Updates
Hi there. I'm pretty new to linux still, and just wanted to ask: How often do you all install security updates? It seems that I have a couple hundred MB of security updates every day (KDE Neon).

gnu screen not interwining tabs history on terminal
Hello ! I like gnu screen, however there's a behavior that really bothers me, and I haven't found a way to overcome. I do have on `~/.screenrc`: `termcapinfo xterm*|rxvt*|alacritty*|kterm*|Eterm* ti@:te@` So that I can use the mouse scroll to traverse history. However, when using multiple tabs, and you do traverse the history, by scrolling, or simple shift-page-down or shift-page-up, you'll see the history of all tabs interwined, all mixed up. Anyone aware of a way to prevent that? I would really like to see just the history of the current gnu screen tab, and nothing else, while "scrolling" up/down on the terminal.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
