Howdy y’all! Josh here. I’m a special educator by trade and hobbiest tech-tinker. I enjoy toying around with #SBC, #MiniPC, and trying out various #OS on bare metal. Oh, and I like building #MechanicalKeyboards and collecting #MacroPads.

I spent a good chunk of the day slimming down my Debian install on the . I moved from (and uninstalled) to . I wholesale uninstalled many preinstalled apps (such as Libre Office, Emacs, Bluez, and much, much more).

I installed and I gotta say, it is running smooth. I am even able to run with out maxing out the CPU or RAM!

All in all, its been a good day.

@Wyatt IDK. I am just treating Neofetch as feature complete.

When push comes to shove, I will more likely move to Fastfetch since I can install that on all my devices.

@Wyatt outside of compiling myself, I do not think it’s available at this time for riscv

Might right shoulder has been pretty fucked for the past 2 days. I wish I knew what I did to cause this; is this what aging feels like?

Here is my little hint of the madness in my mind…

@Wyatt wait till you see the final product. Took me awhile to sort out all the keycaps.

Currently taking a break, then I will flash the board and post some pics and the layout.

Which one do y'all think is a better gaming-ish lay out?

"Current Set up" or "Other Idea?"

Current has a more traditional left side keyboard layout.

Other idea has more distinct sections: Media, Numpad, and left hand gaming section.

@Wyatt I get a bit too overwhelmed with a lot of buttons when it comes to gaming.

In all actuality a standard keyboard will still be attached in case it is needed, like for putting in commands in Minecraft or chat

Bought me a Zima Board. Dunno what I'll do with it yet, but I will find something.

@thelinuxcast thats the way to do it! Hardware first, then figure it out.

Thats pretty much every sbc purchase for me 😅

It looks like I might be a bit of a fan boy. Looking at my devices that run a DE, all of them are GTK based (, , and ).

@Wyatt I'm still going strong on #Nobara

@thelinuxcast@fosstodon.org avatar

I think the lack of a good screenshot utility is what's going to get me to leave behind. The default one is not great, and none of the others that work on Wayland work for me on Gnome. Get the same errors with grim/slurp and flameshot.

JLW_the_Jobber,
@JLW_the_Jobber@fosstodon.org avatar

@thelinuxcast that’s weird, I have had no issues with Gnome Screenshot. Im running mine on Nobara; could it be a Suse issue?

Hey @geerlingguy catching up on last night’s live stream with @CraftComputing and I have an idea for potential sponsors: hot dogs!

You and your dad can test out different hot dogs to see what produces the best sound, loudest, most bass, etc.

You could be rolling in that hot dog money. Then branch out to hot dog buns, condiments, etc.

@geerlingguy Jeff, have you tried any of the compute module 4 knock-offs on the Seaberry itx board? Like the milk mars cm or one of the orange pi cm?

Okay, my Gnome people, best gtk based terminal emulator? Must have good theming and customization support.

JLW_the_Jobber,
@JLW_the_Jobber@fosstodon.org avatar

@thelinuxcast I have really been liking BlackBox, but it might be too limited in theming for you; it comes with preset themes. I think you can customize it too. I will check in a bit. Either way it is a very slick looking terminal.

Damn it, did it again. Nothing is going right today. Stupid VM just keeps shutting right off. I don't get it

@thelinuxcast did you try being really stern with it and using phrases like “Im not mad, just disappointed?”

@geerlingguy do you plan to release a full video/review on the DeskPis mini server rack that you presented in your latest video?

The short was just too short 🤣
