A huge and massive thanks to one of the most friendly and overall amazing friends of TROM, @Roma who helped again in a tremendous manner. 1.000 Euros donation for the TROM Laptop campaign. Unbelievable.

Now the campaign looks a lot more different and doable. Amazing help. Unbelievable! #tromlive

Laptop Donation Campaign -

By Tio:

This is a donation campaign to help me, Tio, buy a new laptop that will allow me to become more mobile while having all I need to work on TROM and its baby projects. Please see the donation campaign for a detailed explanation and help if you can.

Basically I need to take what is in this photo (except those galaxies):

With all of the shoeboxes full of HDDs and cables:

And put it into this:

Thank you very much if you can help out! ๐Ÿ˜€

FIFA World Trade

The current FIFA event shows a few things that should have been obvious anyway:

1. Slavery was not abolished, it was reduced and redefined at best.
2. High level sport is a business, nothing more.
3. Greenwashing is the most popular practice of pretty much all companies and organizations.
4. Not many people care about climate change, slavery, dictatorship regimes, and so forth.
5. The ones in power (from states to organizations like FIFA) care only about profits and lie endlessly.
6. We are fucked, nothing changes. The same trade based society keeps on being in the driving seat, deciding where we go.

Thanks for sharing that video, #GreenWashing is becoming more and more common these days.

Any account registered at that looks like spam (you know those business-like descriptions and links to their nonsense websites) will be automatically removed. Peertube must implement a "why do you want to join" form before approval. So that we, the admins, can weed-out the spammers - #tromlive

We have enabled Notes for our Nextcloud trade-free instance - get 5GB free and access to OnlyOffice, file conversion, storage, photos, etc.. #tromlive

A massive thanks to Olaf for the 200 Euros donation! If you want to support TROM and all of our projects (see them all here), please consider a donation! Again thank you so much Olaf! #tromlive

Our Peertube instance does not currently work. We are investigating why....probably it has to do with the plugins update we did yesterday.... Sorry... #tromlive

The registrations for our Peertube instance were failing recently because of our anti-spam protection measures. Now we loosen them up a bit. Should work again. Sorry! #tromlive

Thank you InfinitelyGalactic for the TROMjaro review: Why we NEED new distros! - TROM Jaro Review

He is one of the few Linux reviewers that takes time to look into distros. So we are more than happy to see this review and the context he puts it into.

Awesome! #tromlive

4 people reshared this

Awesome video! I really like how he used #Tromjaro as a case study to show why we need new linux distros.
This entry was edited (4 weeks ago)
Yup. ANd ofc he did not go through some of the important tweaks that we have done, like I do not know any distro that comes with a VPN, or fixes the XFCE zombie apps, or syncs the theme, icons and fonts across most apps (he did emphasized tho about this). And so forth. In any case, awesome to finally see TROMjaro featured to such a good linux channel. Overall good. Been casually following this channel for many years now, actually one of the first linux ytb channels. The guy seems very nice, calm, and to the point.

Anyway, great to see this.

Thank you Nicolas for the 2 Euro Paypal donation and the message: "For Tio, Sasha, Rokosun, and Alexio, and the second TROM documentary!". Every little donation counts so thank you. ๐Ÿ˜€ #tromlive

Carbon Capture, yet another "green washing" that won't help us at all -

When the trade based society we live in, makes us all want to trade like insane robots, then you can't fix anything unless you fix society. Period. And these "technological" solutions are a mere scapegoat for the best players of the game, who have no interest in changing the game. After all, they are having lots of fun.

So, carbon capture is no more than a scam. #tromlive

Adam hits it again! Here is another comedy on the idiocy of carbon capture.

fuckall that was funny. haha. and fuckin'true. then it becomes infuriating.
Damn, that's fucked up on many different levels that I can't even comprehend. So much #GreenWashing
Wow, just another excuse for oil companies to keep doing their business ๐Ÿคฆ

I'm now frequently hearing about this #GreenWashing thing and its honestly very scary.

We recommend you to follow the Peertube channel " Be Brave To Act " by @Dima - very good, informative, and important content.

His latest video is all about how river dams are destroying the nature. Watch it here

Companies pretending to care about the environment when all they actually care about is their profits going up. This is now becoming a common trick companies use to build a good image for their brand, so fake.

A good interview with Neil Tyson. Some cosmic perspective....


@Alexio is adding all of the available subtitles to our TROM Videos - this is a lot of work! And can be very helpful for those who speak a different language than English. Alexio is a great human being! #tromlive

Muting the TROM Discussion chat + working again on TROM II - >>> #tromlive

PublicLewdness reshared this.

The idea of launching satellites to display ads to humans, from space, sounds like an utter idiocracy. But it is something some are thinking seriously about. See here.
"Space advertising turns out to have a potential for commercial viability."

A trade based society where humans need and want (because of constant training) to trade this for that, even when we have enough to provide this or that without trading anything in return.

If we keep this trade society alive, humanity will get trashed. And is likely to be too late anyway....

Omg :facepalm Utterly stupid..
Shockingly so...
Yeah, unfortunately, nothing new for our insane trade world.. Any idiotic idea counts, just to try to make a bit more money for someone to go on. Imagine how much money that someone can cut from the morons who will buy this shit? And sure I bet Musk's already first in the line offerring a delivery of that garbage to the orbit..
Swear, I had a joke that they would spend hundreds of millions of dollars on a research how to grow vegetables and fruits with the ads inprinted on the their surface. Hundreds of years of the biologocal science discoveries for these sorts of stupidity.. Now it sounds like someone can consider this shit seriously.
Shit Roma delete your comment some company may see it! But damn yeah....this sounds like not-so-crazy in today's society, or tomorrow's one...
The era of space ads started when elon musk put a tesla car into orbit around the earth, now I wouldn't be surprised if they went all in and show us ads in the sky. What an idiotic trade-based society ๐Ÿคฆ

TROMjaro 2022.09.30 (important fix)

QT apps stopped working...but we provide a fix. Plus we achieved the holly grail ๐Ÿ˜ - we do a better sync now across libraries (gtk and qt) and support font syncing too! Check it out! #tromlive

3 people reshared this

Our Peertube instance (the youtube trade-free alternative) supports automatic video imports - meaning you can select your youtube, vimeo and so forth channels, and it will auto-sync with your peertube. The video, description, tags, and so forth will be auto-uploaded. How awesome!

We've also limited the resolution to Full HD as maximum. Everything else makes little to no sense and it is usually an overkill unless you have a huge screen that supports 2k or 4k native resolutions. We are also limited in terms of disk it makes no sense to allow 3 minute 4k uploads that are 1GB. That's insanity.

Anyway, feel free to use our instance. We provide unlimited uploads. #tromlive

A very important TROMjaro Release

We worked a lot to make it so much easier from now on to keep your TROMjaro updated without making manual changes like you had to do before. This is mostly thanks to the wonderful @Roma and @Rokosun who did a wonderful job.

ENJOY! #tromlive

3 people reshared this

We are getting closer and closer to releasing a new TROMjaro ISO that will come with some really useful features for every TROMjaro user. In short, the changes we usually recommend for people to do (most of them at least) for each of our release, will be now pushed by us to everyone automatically. Thanks to @Roma and @Rokosun for the great work they've done for these past days.

As soon as we release this new TROMjaro ISO, the focus will shift once again on the TROM II documentary.

TROM is alive. And it has been since 2011. And we will continue to be. We plan a new TROM Meeting for the next year. We will let you know more details towards the end of this year. #tromlive

The wonderful Roma (a very special TROM-friend) is visiting us.

On top of having a great time together and very interesting discussions, we worked on TROMjaro these days a lot. We will release a new ISO soon that brings something we truly needed: packages for our scripts. We have a bunch of scripts for fixes, and for the layout and theme switcher. Now we won't have to ask the current TROMjaro users to do this or that change, everything will be directly pushed by us. We also fixed a few things and such.

We achieved a wonderful synchronization for theming. Basically now the theme, the icon pack, and the font sync across apps: GTK, GTK+Libadwaita, QT, QT5, QT6, flatpaks that accept theming. So awesome!

But the best part is that we can now improve these packages and push updates automatically to all users. Stay tuned for the release! And thank you Roma for being such a good human. A true human being ๐Ÿ˜€. #tromlive

It's always a pleasure to visit my favorite people in the world and also to make some cool things for TROM projects ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thank you so much for being so friendly, love you all :loveheart
Thank you my dear friend! For everything ๐Ÿ˜€

We fixed all of our websites for mobile. Meaning, they should look ok on pretty much all screens. If you see any being broken let us know. #tromlive

Rokosun reshared this.

Activists today throw seeds on cement. And they expect flowers to bloom. It cannot. We need a fertile soil first!

We need to provide humans with their basic needs as trade-free so they can bloom. So they can have the time to get involved, choose what to focus on, relax, have time to be educated and educate.

Nothing will work unless we do that.

TROM is trying hard to create a fertile soil, granted only in the digital world (for now). We provide books, videos, documentaries, software, services...a lot to create a fertile soil, to then plant some seeds.

Currently the following websites have been "fixed" for mobile screens, so that they look ok on these tiny devices:

- (but not the individual services)
- and

We mainly have to fix our services, individually....that could take some time... #tromlive

According to our Friendica instance, is the 7th Friendica instance in terms of total users, and the 3rd in terms of monthly active users.

That's great! We are only one and a half years old or so. We will continue to grow and overall Friendica gained almost double the users in the past year.

It is still a drop in the ocean, but adds to the big fediverse network. Happy to see that. Please join us! #tromlive

Rokosun reshared this.

Started the "fix websites for mobile screens" thing....we are trying to make our websites work well on mobile devices too. Not that these devices are more than consumerist gadgets nowadays, but for a few people they might be useful and handy tools. We fixed, and for now. Let us know if you find anything looking strange on these small screens. #tromlive

Oh wow you finally did it! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I'll let you know if I find any bugs, thanks a lot for fixing it ๐Ÿ˜€
Thank you for insisting. I will do them all the following days/weeks.

We are integrating a few things into the new TROMjaro release:

Our Trade-Free Library of apps. We are adding it as a webapp.

It is pinned to the apps-panel by default. Browse through some 650 trade-free apps. We have screenshots from TROMjaro, description, and an install button. Click it and install. As easy as that!

VideoNeat - fast access to hundreds and hundreds of quality documentaries and courses.

Click any magnet link and it opens by default with WebTorrent so you can stream everything directly from p2p. This one is also pinned to the apps-panel.

On top of this we are adding to the Documents folder a PDF about our Trade-Free initiative.

This is very important because TROMjaro is not just another distro, it is fueled by a "movement", an idea, that trade is the origin of most problems and we want to push it aside by providing trade-free goods and services. TROMjaro is one of these goods/services that we provide. If you are curious see the PDF here -
