After 10 months of not working with a PinePhone I can tell you I'm back at it. Gentoo getting into binary packages I coudn't help but wonder "does this make gentoo on a PinePhone work?" and the answer is yes! #Gentoo #Pine64. I will update my blog with a new post soon about it. (so at least you know which use flags to use) but for now I made a binary host for the PinePhonePro Only! https://distfiles.gjdwebserver.nl

These packages are made for the A72/A53 and includes all packages in my repo.

You think decentralised social networking was invented with Mastodon? Think twice.

It was almost exactly 14 years ago, on May 13th, 2010, that @Mike Macgirvin 🖥️ conceived Mistpark. All by itself revolutionary and with features which no-one else has ever built into a decentralised project until today, it was only the first step of a long journey which led to Friendica, nomadic identity, Hubzilla, all three still before Mastodon, and eventually the streams repository.

in reply to Katharsisdrill

@Katharsisdrill Yes, Diaspora* is two months younger than Mistpark.

But Diaspora* of 2024 is no match for Mistpark of 2010, feature-wise. Mistpark, on the other hand, evolved into Friendica which federated with everything that moved, then into Hubzilla, the nomadic Swiss army knife of the Fediverse, and lastly, into the streams repository which is the home of the technologically most advanced Fediverse software to date.

in reply to Jupiter Rowland

- Still, if you want to write history why not mention Diaspora too. They are an important part of the fediverse.

(I have been using all of them since 2014 and Diaspora is actually pretty stable and user friendly which is more important than features - at least in my opinion. I am trying to move to Hubzilla to be able to reach both protocols and that is one big UI-mess.)

in reply to Katharsisdrill

- But at least on Hubzilla it is actually possible to reach all the corners of the fediverse.
in reply to Katharsisdrill

@Katharsisdrill I didn't want to write the history of the Fediverse itself. The revolution I was referring to is not the Fediverse.

I wanted to write the history of the streams repository. The revolution I was referring to is nomadic identity and a system of permissions that exceeds the capabilities of both Mastodon and Diaspora* far and wide.

Linux Document Translation?


Does anyone know of document #translation software for #linux -preferably offline- which supports #Japanese #language? Specifically something that is able to process the text from scanned image #PDF files.
in reply to eshep

This can translate Japanese.
But I have no idea how to feed the text from scanned images to it.
in reply to gunnar

Looks promising, but only seems to accept files with actual text in them.

\m/ thanks!

in reply to eshep

You're welcome. If I'm not mistaken, it does not accept pdf, but after converting it to odt (or something else), it might work that way.

You forgot muting...

with muting you likewise garuntee you never see them again. But it has some differences

1) less rude since it doesnt limit their ability to interact with people on your posts
2) less disruptive to people on your posts because it doesnt orphan tons of past threads that people left (people you arent blocking so why would you want to)
3) is transparent to the other party so causes less drama and less chance of them trolling you from sock puppets
4) Doesnt game the social system, in other words, when you block you game the dialogue, so people who see your posts see a false reality, the conversations arent an honest representation of peoples opinions. By not blocking people dont get echo chamber effects where they get a false view of reality and thus start to view reality incorrect.

in reply to 🎓 Doc Freemo :jpf: 🇳🇱

@freemo Hehe, yeah, that is right. However what I was after was all the "oh, so you are welcoming such-and-such?" just because I haven't blocked such-and-such. I don't think they are the same thing.

But yes, muting and filtering (depending on what service people are on) can be great tools for chiseling out the stream of the day, which might be different tomorrow or in an hour.

The best one-man distro ever made!


Lookin fer a new #distro but don't wanna choose between #KDE, #GNOME, or some obscure #WM the arch kids are into this week? Maybe you've heard some old greybeards grumblin about #enlightenment but figured it was just some hippy thing. What if there was an easy way to get yer hands on the tried and true, real enlightenment window manager, #e16, without all that configuratin bidniss? If yer lookin for a well polished #debian with a UI your friends prolly don't have, maybe take this Elive thing nobody's talkin bout fer a spin.

Much like any good magic trick, the more you know about what's been tweaked and streamlined behind the scenes, the more you can appreciate all that's gone into the making of this distro. This has been a one-man project from before the time I learned of it sometime early 2005 in the #e channel on freenode. Much though and dedication has gone into the design of each release since then.

Go check it out, it's free if you don't wanna help with production.

@The Linux Experiment Fwiw... I don't use any WM, & have no desire to, coz... i have no capability to. I rarely if ever see anyone else mention this, which i regard as amazeballs tbh, but for me it's really simple. I have the memory of a lobotomised goldfish having a bad day, so the idea that i could ever memorise all the command keyboard shortcuts to do all the stuff that i do each day comfortably in #KDEPlasma via GUI & mouse, is laughable to me. I know my limits, & having a good memory is not one of my attributes. Hence, no WMs for me, even if they might well be the best thing since sliced bread.
in reply to Droppie [venera] 🐨♀🌈🐧​🦘

if by any chance you're keen to learn in the future, having a wallpaper or desktop widget that's just your personal WM keybinds cheat-sheet helps! 😎

(You can also go old-school and have a print-out of the keybinds by your side, haha.)

Some WMs also come with a dedicated hotkey popup (and it updates itself as you change your keybindings!). One of the main reasons I love Awesome WM. 🙂

Amazing! This is one of my 2 options. I want laptopt with Linux support and dedicated AMD GPU. Well done Tuxedo! Can't wait for some reviews. Btw. Is it possible to see your products live somewhere before I buy one of your machines? Also can I install Linux on 1st SSD and Windows on 2nd SSD and choose booting drive from BIOS? In this way I can avoid using boot manager and I can have Linux partition encrypted and leave Windows partition unencrypted.

Reviews should become available soon. You can see our devices only at Linux conventions. The next one we most likely will attend to is Chemnitzer Linuxtage on March 16 and 17. And for your 2nd question: Yes, that install scheme would work.

Interesting. I was just diving into the items table because I am creating a module that displays past items in a list and whether it has been seen or not. Similar to notifications, except it still shows items that you have already seen in a paginated list, similar to an inbox.

I didn't realize that block activities were sent out like that. That might make for some interesting display options for users.

Did a bit'a readin and thought #OrcaSlicer looked like it had a few nice improvements to #SuperSlicer. Their GitHub releases page had a file called OrcaSlicer_V1.6.4-beta2_Linux.zip so I figured I give it a try. I was a bit concerned when I opened that zip and found it contained a file called OrcaSlicer_ubu64.AppImage, but hey, it's an AppImage right, should be fine...nope. First run from cli just to see what it spits out and what'a'ye know, error while loading shared libraries: libwebkit2gtk-4.0.so.37. A quick sifting through the AppImage contents and guess how many .so files it had in it; yup, not'a one.

What's the point of making an #AppImage / #Flatpak / #Snap if you're not gonna include the required libraries to run it?
