545.29.02 makes Wayland far more usable with an Nvidia card. We finally have Nightlight support in Gnome.

Things like this turn people off from Linux

I run Mylar on my Xubuntu server to manage my comic collection. I found out recently that there’s a tool that can convert the embedded .jpgs to .webp to save space, but it only works on cbz files and not cbr (zipped vs rar for those who don’t know). I wanted to convert all of my cbr to cbz so that I could run the tool on all...

It's not complicated though. It's just different than windows. It's also not an issue with Linux. Thunar just doesn't behave the way you want it to. Files in GNOME works fine, but wildcards don't require a * to search.

I've used Linux exclusively at home for the last 10 years. We deploy Windows where I work. This is not normal. Despite my disdain for Microsoft, the setup process on Windows is straight forward and easy. It's one of the things Microsoft gets right.

This idea of OS superiority is pointless. Every major OS has things it does better than the others. We should look at those things to improve Linux in areas where it lags behind.

They nuked patched 3rd party apps from the looks of it.

Not sure what happened. Had to completely repatch and reinstall, but RIF working again now.

Arch is similarly this easy. I think where I usually see the most people complaining is when a new shiny version of the driver has come out and they try to update manually, breaking system packages and borking their system.

I'm not saying I have personally done this before. Nope. Not saying that at all...

Most uncomplicated Printer that just works™?

Hey, sorry if this isn’t the right place to ask this (feel free to show me the way). I want to get myself a printer that can also scan. Main purpose is to not have endless sheets of paper laying around, but to scan Documents I recieve and then throwing them away so that I only have them digitally and can print stuff out only...

Brother printers and CUPs just work. It really doesn't get much easier.

Genuinely never have issues with Nvidia cards or drivers. Only thing that bugs me is that Nighlight in Gnome doesn't work. Other than that, not a single problem.

Please delete empty, opportunistic magazines created during the rexit

There are a fair number of totally empty magazines created during rexit, with no threads, yet a fair number of subscribers (because the name matches a popular sub from Reddit). I clicked on one this morning, because I saw it in random magazines side bar section. No threads. Created a month ago by a user who hasn't posted a...

Seriously. Once Gnome Night Light works right in it, I'll switch. Until then, I'm in X at night. Redshift is not a suitable replacement.

Following Red Hat's lead, Linus Torvalds will only publish Linux Kernel code to paid contributors (en.wikipedia.org)

At Linux, thousands of people spend their time writing code to enable new features, fixing bugs, integrating different packages and then supporting that work for a long time - something that our customers and partners need....

Your satire has been noted and I'm submitting a request to have it deprecated.

Snap is not fully open source. It's slower than flatpak, it's centralized to Canonical's servers.Flatpaks so not update by default where snaps do, so if a feature breaking update is released and you haven't disabled automatic updates, you're screwed with snap. Flatpak does not need admin privileges where snaps do.

Workspaces / Virtual Desktops – do you use them on your laptop, desktop, or both?

About 4 years ago I got a 13.3" Thinkpad laptop to replace an old Chromebook for portable development, and installed Arch + i3 on it (btw). After a bit of ricing the configs, it started feeling really homey. I love using workspaces here! They feel perfectly suited for laptop screens which have minimal space, allowing me to keep...

Not gonna lie. I have 5 monitors and forget the workspaces exist. It would make life so much easier if I started using the.

I'm more of a Product Sans guy myself, but whatever floats your boat.

Twitter, Threads, and the misunderstood nature of engineering (beehaw.org)

Complex internet services fail in interesting ways as they grow in size and complexity. Twitter’s recent issues show how failures emerge slowly over time as relationships between components degrade. Meta’s quick launch of Threads demonstrates how platform investments can compound over time, allowing them to quickly build on...

While completely done with Twitter, I wasn't happy with the crazy invasion of privacy required to use the Threads app, so I'm writing a web based interface for it. Figured out how to just show posts from people you're following today.

Wow. Did not expect Tumblr to be doing better than Twitter.

I'm running Arch with dual Nvidia cards. It's nice to have a distro that actually updates it's Nvidia driver on a regular basis without having to manually do it and breaking things. Any rolling release should work just fine.
