I freaking hate politics right now. There is no place for views that aren't hard-left or hard-right. There is no desire for dialog. Most people in reality are not perfect ideological stereotypes. But in spite of that, I see more and more of my online acquaintances falling into line with these sterotypes. Being part of the left leaning FOSS community, usually this means presenting as far left revolutionaries. It is resulting in the split of communities and ejection of good faith participants.

Is the future of desktop Linux packaging? Or will it turn out to be short-lived?

Nouvanity,
@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

@tulpa if the devs could get over the fact that yes, some apps do in fact need to communicate with one another, then maybe.

When you try to run Battlefield V on EA App, which now has the EA Anticheat, you get a pretty clear answer to why it won't launch.

@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

@lutris "you cant use wine because of cheaters. Dont look into the fact that most cheats are going to also run through wine because no one will make a cheat that only runs through wine, therefore its going to be a windows app." I've stopped trying to play multiplayer games because of this. I know the answer to why they wont (money), but a server side anti cheat would solve all of these issues.

@thelinuxEXP you want a video idea? How about looking at what the criteria should be for picking a default desktop environment for a Linux distro. Seems like @fedora will be needing that soon lol

Change proposal to make KDE the default for Fedora Workstation: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Changes/FedoraPlasmaWorkstation

@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

@Joseph_of_Earth im just joking around about it. But gnome is just really late to a bunch of the newest features. It kinda makes sense for fedora to jump to kde since thier entire motto is to be the bleeding edge of linux.

@thelinuxEXP @kde i love that it seems they are focusing more on improving apps and fixing bugs rather than adding new features to the desktop.

So, a while back, I asked you to recommend your favorite command line utilities.
I got 187 answers, with 3 recommendations for almost each of them, and I sifted through these to land on 12 picks that I either started using myself, or that I felt would be very useful!

So, here are 12 terminal apps and utilities that you recommended:

@thelinuxEXP I really enjoy finding tui replacements for gui apps for simple things that really dont need a gui. My personal favorites im using right now are nvim for text editing, termusic to manage music, calcure as a calendar, and bottom as a system resource monitor. I hope to find more tui's in the future to replace other things!

@BrodieOnLinux Just saying wayland in his presence is enough for him to go on a 5 paragraph essay about why wayland sucks, 90% of which is already fixed, 9% is already being worked on and 1% is absolute nonsense.

Power Of Linux Gaming On Android Phones?!? https://youtu.be/0cqZmApjWw4

@BrodieOnLinux pretty insane how smartphones are so powerful that it can emulate switch games but the market is only filled with candy crush and other ad filled shovelware.

Nouvanity, to pop_os
@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

Finally after three months of trying, i found a way to get rocm/hip working on blender. Had to move to #Pop_OS and follow a guide to download the rocm drivers but it finally worked. No more hacky workarounds that didnt work on arch linux nor flatpak not supporting it for some reason, I can actually learn 3d modeling without dealing with 2 hour cycle renders!

Heres a link to the guide if your interested:

@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

@BartV im not dan, it's just a guide i found on the internet! And no, i used to be able to use it on arch linux but that has been broken for a few months and switching to pop os was the option i choose to get it back working. It seems blender just doesnt work with up to date versions of rocm, every version after 5.6.1 just comes with nothing but crashes and troubles.

Why System76 Left Ubuntu Linux Behind https://youtu.be/gyczz2_Llqg

Nouvanity,
@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

@BrodieOnLinux Would love to see them fully leave Ubuntu and move to Debian stable or sid. Speaking that ironically moving to debian 12 would bring a newer base vs their 22.04 release they are on right now. Its really my only gripe with pop os is that its a distro based on a distro based on another distro.

TIme for the usual end-of-the-week and News video!

In this one, we have doubling down on errors, with dropping 18.04 without any warning (which is a problem, because auto updates are a very common thing), and grabbing browsing data from without asking for consent.

We also have 40 KDE going back a bit on their removal of X11, and some unintended consequences of licensing changes:

@thelinuxEXP I cant wait for wine to be wayland native and for the support of wow64. outside godot (godot is getting wayland support in 4.3), its the only thing i use that uses xwayland and its the only app that uses 32 bit libraries.

Gamescope is such a godsend for linux gaming. Have an old game that doesnt support good anti-aliasing methods? Simply render the display one tier higher (1080p to 1440p) and run fsr to get a excellent TAA implementation on every game without the blobbyness of FXAA and without the huge performance drop of MSAA. Its amazing!

Cosmic is looking very cool, seems very gnome like. Hope they stand out a little more than they do currently. But the theming is on point!

@tripplehelix i actually think its perfect it looks like gnome, let it be what gnome should have been. A bonus if it can actually seem fairly integrated with gnome apps.

@BrodieOnLinux wayland broke xrandr and this application i must use doesnt work anymore since i touched it 2 years ago, i think its something like oh bee ess? therefore all the devs should stop working on wayland and make x12 instead :l

Tiling Window Managers Are Simply Better https://youtu.be/wZpCrCcIsC4

Nouvanity,
@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

@BrodieOnLinux i say its 50/50. Tiling window managers are great up unless you just want something that works ootb. In my two weeks switching from kde to hyprland ive had a lot of issues ive had to solve for myself, such as learning how to handle themeing and dealing with config files to get some things working. In return though I have a desktop that is perfectly tuned for what I want and not what kde or gnome thinks I want.

Nouvanity, to random
@Nouvanity@fosstodon.org avatar

Finally decided to give a try. It's been going great, with most of the issues i've faced happening outside hyprlands control (thunar and neovim not recognizing alacritty as my terminal, theming being a hot mess). I might just stick with it, it's really nice to make my own hotkeys and figure out things I can do as I go along! Another plus is that for some reason the bug I got from rimworld crashing seems to not happen on hyprland when it did on kde and gnome withing changing anything.
