I have been looking into the focus stealing prevention mechanism in GNOME Shell/Mutter. Now i gonna use it in strict mode (instead of smart) and see how many more "<Application> is ready" notifications i get.

In really really simple terms, this means that the app starting the new app didn't hand over focus to the new application and therefore the focus stealing prevention mechanism kicks in. Unfortunately it's not that simple to implement it.

@jsparber is there a way to use it in "non strict mode"?

»Since we're talking about icon theming, I recently stumbled upon this gitlab issue. Apparently they now want to remove icon theming support in 5. The way the GTK devs started the description really infuriated me: "i. themes are no longer a thing". Really? Who said that? Since when "i. themes are no longer a thing" became a consensus in the Linux desktop space? It seems like you just made up this claim and posted it as undeniable truth for you own comfort.«

@frumble icon themes.

The Phoronix thread you linked actually has a lot of people debunking a lot of misconceptions.

@matzipan@hachyderm.io avatar

@frumble The fact that KDE app devs have stuck with this for so long is admirable but also frankly unnecessary. When you have a specific UX concept in mind, leaving it to the icon theme to decide what to show can lead to the wrong symbol or metaphor being shown, degrading the UX.

matzipan,
@matzipan@hachyderm.io avatar

@frumble you are misreading this on several levels. GNOME is breaking icon theming not for other desktops, but for it's own desktop. This only happens when you use GNOME with adwaita as the main theme.

This thing has been changed for at least 2 years now. And someone noticed only now, which should give you an idea of the size of the problem.

matzipan,
@matzipan@hachyderm.io avatar

@frumble And it is true, icon themes have been a major sticking point for app developers for a very long time. You never know what icons you're going to find, and how they are going to look on other distros.

I remember having this issue all the way back in 2013 when moving a simple app across distros meant the whole UI was broken due to missing/renamed icons. This makes it impossible for developers to offer a cohesive experience, so devs just give up and vendors their own icons.

matzipan,
@matzipan@hachyderm.io avatar

@frumble @razze as a Linux "app" developer myself, I think I can call my "app" what I prefer.

If KDE is more open to theming and has more priorities in this sense, it's their call and nobody can take that away from them.

Nobody is forced to use GNOME and everybody can fork anything at anytime, which is what happened many times already.

So being mad in the internet about this is not something any of us should do.

At least my choice to ditch GNOME for KDE turns out, once again, to be the right choice.

Two days before 24.04 LTS releases, and the upgrade process seems quite badly broken. If you're an adventurous person, I'd wait for quite some time before upgrading...

Edit: With some brutal hardcore apt and dpkg, I fixed it.

I think the closest I'll personally get to a near-religious experience is going to a great concert. I just watched Altin Gün live and I feel like I was transported to a magical place for an hour or two and then placed back to earth. My heart is full of joy. What an incredible thing live music can be!

@Techaltar Spotify threw them my way recently. Very nice.

For some reason Spotify thinks I need more psychedelic Turkish rock in my life and I am really happy about it.

@9to5linux this is the screen that I am talking about. There are around 40 checkboxes that I have to unstick before reading the website.

matzipan,
@matzipan@hachyderm.io avatar

@9to5linux this does not affect all those „legitimate interest“ checkboxes. As far as I could remember (and this was strengthened by this decision: https://www.dlapiper.com/en-gb/insights/publications/2023/07/cjeus-landmark-decision-in-meta-vs-bundeskartellamt ) those uses do not qualify as candidates for legitimate interest.

It is something that I have seen starting to be abused in the ads space in the last year or so.

So when I see this I just stop reading the website.

So, Windows Subsystem for Linux.

I generally like it. If I want to do Linux-shaped things on a Windows machine, which I often do, then even WSL1 is both faster, and a more faithful imitation, than Cygwin. And WSL2 is better still, on both counts. Plus you get to pick the distro of your choice. I haven't used Cygwin in years.

But I can't shake the feeling that if SQL is pronounced 'sequel', then WSL ought to be pronounced 'weasel'.

Hey ,

Someone I know is a PhD in Genetics with a foot in Python-based data science.

They are looking for a job, preferably in the area, but relocation possible if necessary

Is anybody aware of any openings in either life sciences, data science or entry programming.

Gnome users remind me of a cult.

"Is the website not loading right?

Well, it must be a KDE, Budgie, Lxqt, or Cinnamon issue, you should install Gnome."

🙄

Gnome is not the be all, above all, to fix all. But their user base is so overbearing and sometimes toxic, that as soon as they learn someone is not using Gnome, they point to that as the possible cause.

I'm not joking, by the way, they'll even claim a 3rd party web issue on not using Gnome. 🙄

@Linux_Is_Best you have to be a bit more specific, but it may well be that you’re generalising a little bit too much from the experience with one person
