Gaming Devs learn rival open source Godot engine in a week to poke fun at Unity

I hope many devs are aware of that and willing to implement it rather than developing their very own incompatible solution.

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?

The Linux systemd Controversy: A Beginner’s Guide to Understanding the Debate


Content warning: Linux startup screen showing the text lines as various modules are loading at boot time In the world of Linux, few debates have stirred as much controversy as the battle between the traditional System V init system, often known as SysVinit, and the newer

stallman on red hat's... could be
"it's just a convenience question"
Check the ref, Stallman was talking about using systemd. As noted he uses it everyday.

I have been using it too, for eight years now, with no issues and quick boot times.

It's free software, you can download and read the source code, use it, modify it or fork it if you like. You are also free to use something else if you prefer.

Friendica timelines are compelling


@Ada That is exactly what I think every time I use e.g. #Tusky or another #mastodon focussed app: "Where does this post come from, where is the #context?
@erik
Usually because you follow the author... and now it is also possible to follow hashtags.

@erik

Yes, this is where Friendica truly shines. I actually had a screenshot of exactly how it looks like in Friendica if one of my contacts re-shares/re-toots one post. In the attached screenshot that action is by the green arrow (far down). Friendica then pulls in the thread of posts that belong together, and show them as a clustered thread in the regular flow (note that my setting for that is ”Latest Activity”, so one can chose a different view if one were to prefer that).

@ada @fediverse
Screenshot of thread as presented in the ”main feed” of the view, without having to ”click in” to see the entire thread.
@Ada I agree. Tried #Firefrecently and liked their approach too.

That naughty fellow @revk is *such* an influencer!
Box for the SQFMI ePaper watch.
Got to say, the #watchy is *very* fiddly to assemble. Nerves of steel and a steady hand are required.

I love the æsthetic - but the case has no water resistance and doesn't have *any* protection for the fragile eInk screen.
A big fat watch on my wrist.

@bekopharm thanks. I've requested an account.
well, hope @milan grants it 👌👍
Turns out, the only Micro USB cable I have left is from… a BlackBerry!

Mmmm! Low processor power, monochrome screen, clacky buttons. Perfect!
USB Cable with a BlackBerry logo embossed on it. The cable is plugged into my wrist computer.
Connecting the #Watchy to WiFi was pretty easy. Didn't have to use the buttons to type in an SSID & password. It broadcasts its own AP, so I could set it up in a browser.

NTP worked, but the timezone is 4 hours out.

Oh well! Lots to play with.

🐧 I wrote a new blog entry listing all the changes I made to turn the Lenovo Yoga 370 into my mobile GNU/Linux digital painting device. It's long because it contains detailed instructions for beginners. I hope it is helpful.

@torbuntu It's not maintained by Krita team, and big libs and frameworks using it are not patched to fix specific issues. It's not as stable as the appimage...
Oh! THANKS. I was looking for this kind of computer for my daughter, but didn't know if linux (debian for me) would pass.
