Secret Life Underground

Secret Life Underground The underground world is so unfamiliar to us that you only have to dig down a few yards to reveal a totally unknown realm, just beneath our feet. Today, only a fraction of the rich biodiversity that inhabits the soil has been studied. Scientists estimate that the ground is probably home to 70% of the living organisms yet to be discovered.

We have removed link.trom.tf because it was used for phishing. We almost got our server entirely removed because of that. The service was a link shortener. And these services ca be asily abused. We knew that, and we were ready to nuke it in case that happened. #tromlive

TROMjaro: All about properly customizing a Linux Distro


https://videos.trom.tf/w/gsVhyEnuVyCFFG2gbLXVTa

In this video series we will explore TROMjaro in more depth. Today we are looking at how easy it is to customize TROMjaro with just a few clicks. Our Layout and Theme Switcher apps make it quite straight forward. We are also talking about why the theming is broken in Linux and how we kinda fixed it for TROMjaro.

TROM.tf updates:

- We've added https://tasks.trom.tf/ - a complete Trello trade-free alternative.
- We've added https://sketch.trom.tf/- a simple and useful online sketch whiteboard. Draw together with others and share your drawings.
- We've added another one https://scratch.trom.tf/ geared towards learning programming and creating animations.
- We moved yt.trom.tf to the original ytb.trom.tf. Do not worry, they are linked so it does not matter which one you use.

As you can see we are adding new trade-free services. Thanks to the people who donate to TROM. Now we have 27 trade-free services that are well maintained. So if you can, please donate to TROM here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ to keep these services alive and relevant, and add more in the future.

We will make some "info" pages for some of these newly added services, soon. Enjoy! #tromlive

Our TROMjaro LInux Distro comes with a customized Firefox. We removed all Firefox annoyances and trackers, plus added addons to block all ads and trackers on any website, also the sponsors from youtube videos; we added LibreDirect so that it automatically redirects youtube, twitter, instagram and the like, to trade-free front ends. We added an addon to unlock scientific papers, and one to allow you to download any video/audio file from any website.

All in all, we setup TROMjaro's browser to protect you from the pesky world of the Internet and the insidious trades humans are exposed to.

If some trom.tf services look a little broken (design wise) it is because our main TROMsite.com server is down for the past hours. Very likely an issue with the hosting provider. It depends on them whenever this server will be up and running. Probably a network issue in their data center. #tromlive

Our Peertube got updated. There are some cool new features:

1. Automated subtitles based on machine learning. Select the language of your video and an automated subtitle will be created. We do not know how good this feature is, but it is worth a shot.
2. Ability to edit any subtitle.
3. You can cut any of your videos now, using the Studio. There you can also add an intro, outro, and watermark. Basic video editing in the browser!
4. Ability to auto save the permanent livestreams - don't lose those again!
5. Live streams now get converted into multiple formats.
6. Share on the Fediverse:



Please join us! If you are making interesting videos about science/technology/activism in English, you have unlimited storage space with us. We already have over 1.000 registered users, but not many are uploading. #tromlive

Soon we will add a Theme Switch to TROMjaro :)

You will be able to click any color combination from the list and change your theme based on the color accent and dark/light mode. And unlike Pop OS, Deepin, Ubuntu, Gnome and the like, our Theme Switch changes the theme for some 90% of all apps out there, compared to some 10-20% for these other distros.

Stay tuned! #
does this also deal with gtk4 / libawaita bizarro-land on tromjaro?
Unfortunately no....we do not know how to fix that in an automated way...and I do not think anyone knows. But as soon as we do we can adapt the code. Libadwaita really messed things up
oh sounds promising! I will test it now!
Wow this fixes libadwaita theme issue! So awesome. Packaging it for TROMjaro :). All we need for now is a fix for the pesky flatpaks... Thank you so much for the heads-up!
I think what they basically do is patch libadwaita to bypass itself. So it satisfies the library dependency for the executable, but disables what the library would have done... I suspect KDE will adopt a similar strategy at some point. Maybe LD_PRELOAD can be used in a way to do this with flatpaks.

The problem I see is it may not be a very long-term sustainable solution, especially on a rolling distro. I suggest learning who the maintainer is and what their long-term plans are.
this may have some ideas too...

Thank you Guillaume for the 250 Euros donation! This is fantastic! It may add up a bit to speeding up the TROM II documentary work comeback. If we had enough money we would resume the work on the documentary. And we wok on achieving that. Thank you to everyone who still donates via Patreon or Liberapay. You can do so here https://www.tromsite.com/donate/ #

We have increased the file size limit for https://send.trom.tf/ from 3GB to 5GB. Compare with the very popular WeTransfer and we offer 3 times more storage. Plus we can store all files up to a week. On top of this all files are encrypted, and you can send an email with the files from our server directly, to anyone. You can combine multiple files into one archive and even password protect them.

Oh, and of course, our TROM Send is trade-free. We do not want anything in return: not your currency, not your data, not your attention. WeTransfer wants all of those in return for a lesser service.

Make sure you bookmark https://send.trom.tf/ #

We have expanded the storage space for our trom.tf server by 400 more GB of SSD. This means that we now have some 800+ free GB of the server. That's great. Should be fine for this year at least. Thank you to everyone who still donates to TROM. #

People are saying that Time is Money in this world. The better and more realistic and important saying is that: Money is Time, and time is non-renewable. No sane society would look at time in this shallow manner as humans do on this planet.

Our monthly budged updated. We now have around 2.100 Euros in total. This is meant to keep all of the TROM projects alive and relevant. Some 30 websites or so. See https://www.tromsite.com/tools/ . It is of course not enough. TROM II documentary has stalled now, because of lack of funding. We, the ones behind TROM, are trying to work (trade) to make some money to support this project and continue the TROM II documentary. Unfortunately it is extremely difficult.

We still get some monthly donations or one time donations from time to time, which is fantastic! So if you think TROM creates something important, please consider a donation https://www.tromsite.com/donate/

We have many free books, videos, and so many tools: from social networks to operating systems and so on. #
