Not yet, but I live in fear.

I did make the mistake of mounting a drive while I was in the middle of formatting another one. It just halted the operation so it wasn’t too bad, but I try to be more careful now.

No thank you, nazis.

This is mine: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1362/custom-hot-corners/

I’m pretty sure that’s the one. I use hot corners a lot when I’m using a mouse / trackpad to quickly display all open applications, or to show the desktop.

If it gets integrated into Gnome I probably wouldn’t use any other extensions.

I think you can set up your pihole with a VPN for remote use too.

I just searched and found this tutorial but there should be more around:


In that case I would look into switching ISPs, or maybe connect another router and put the ISP-supplied one in bridge mode if possible.

However you feel about RMS, I think we can all agree that the FSF goofed up.

Whether it was a defiant announcement that they won’t let freedom-hating SJWs cancel Stallman, or an announcement of accountability, apology, or steps to address his behaviour — they should have made some kind of statement instead of just letting Stallman himself announce that he was returning without much explanation.

You shouldn’t be using an ISP-supplied router anyway, right?

You don’t know what they’ve put in the firmware for remote management.

Even buying the same model router from a store to replace the ISP one would be preferable.

I much prefer macOS to Windows, and Gnome is a good transition from macOS.

I use a trackpad, and never found the need to use min / max buttons. I use the upper left hot corner to display all windows, and lower left to display the desktop.

On Mac I use 4 finger swipes a lot to transition between workspaces for applications I want to use full screen. So those gestures in Gnome 40 sound like a welcome addition, and I’m sure they’ll go some ways to convince more Mac users to try Linux.

I know Gnome and especially Pop!_OS are meant to be very keyboard-centric. But I’m quite used to using a trackpad.

Well, I’m transitioning into using TWMs like Sway now, but Gnome is definitely my favorite DE.

I’m also forced to use Windows a lot, but don’t enjoy it at all.

How’s does the build feel? Is it solid? How are the hinges, etc?

No, it doesn’t depend on another DNS provider.

I just set up Pi-hole / unbound on a raspberry pi zero w:


It’s not too difficult. All you need is the raspberry Pi zero W and a microSD card. You can power it via USB. You don’t even need to connect a monitor / keyboard for set up.

That’s pretty cool. I’m surprised how well everything seemed to run.

Let me confirm right now.

Edit: Ok, yeah. After I replied to this comment I still had one unread. I’ll check the bug tracker, thanks.

Not sure…

What I’m thinking is an additional “mark all as read button” for situations when you may have many replies. And also if a comment is replied to it should automatically be marked as read.

What I find is sometimes I have a notification. I open it and reply. Then I still have a notification icon, and have to go back and mark as read.

Edit: re-reading the OP. Is there already a mark all as read button? Never mind.

Ursula K. Le Guin’s translation of the Tao Te Ching

If you’ve never read it, I recommend Le Guin’s translation of the Dao De Jing. This blog post has a few sample pages…

That’s great. Personally I don’t use KDE, and haven’t even received my Pinephone yet, but it’s great that they’ve picked a default distro - and it sounds like Manjaro / KDE teams have earned it.

I’ll start with Mobian but will try a few distros.

I think it’s important to focus on a single distro / user experience to get it to a standard where it can be used as a daily driver.

There’s plenty you could post about China’s history, language, people, food, art, landscape, etc. if you don’t like what you see.

It seems like many people who claim to be critical of both the US and China are much more critical of China, and are also more likely to make generalizations about China, and Chinese people when they can more easily make distinctions about the US and American people.

If you’re actually equally critical of the US, Canada, Australia, etc. then you should be just as vocal about PRISM, ICE, treatment of asylum seekers, wage slavery, police, prisons, and so on.

Thank you for creating it, and congratulations on the release.

I’ve been using the beta version for a while now, and it’s working well.

I haven’t encountered any major issues / crashes.

Is it helpful to have suggestions / feature requests? I’m sure there are improvements you’re working on and don’t want to bother you with things that aren’t specifically bugs.

Have you used the Apollo app for Reddit? On that app I like the “compact” appearance as it fits a lot on the page. I think another thing I like is being able to drag a post to the left for upvote, or drag a bit further left for downvote.

Anyway, great work!

Hmmm… ok let’s put a pin in that idea :-)

Maybe a contributors page with a short note of what they’ve worked on. And allow the contributor to post a single link of their own next to their name - maybe some would want to link to their favorite organisation, a personal portfolio / github, or their own patreon / cryptocurrency address, etc.

As a user I might see that a particular person has implemented some accessibility feature, language, or other function, follow their link and read about or contribute to whatever they’ve linked to.

Thanks. It took me a few tries but I got Arch + Sway up and running on a VM. It’s nice. Feels pretty comfy already. I think I can make this work as my daily driver.
