Thanks, have a good day

Source? :)

linucs OP ,

Why important? Where should it be facing in relation to window and door?

Why did groups of human beings migrate to northern zones of the world, and how did they survive?

After reading the abstract of the paper mentioned here I started wondering, why did human groups migrate away from southerner (warmer) places towards the north which is far colder and has less possibilities to grow crops and wild animals to hunt?...

AUA: We are the Plasma dev team. Ask Us Anything about Plasma 6, gear 24.02, Frameworks 6 and everything else in the upcoming Megarelease.

David, Nate, Josh, Marco, Carl, and Niccolò are here ready to answer all your questions on Plasma (all versions), Gear, Frameworks, Wayland (and how it affects KDE's software), and everything in between....

linucs ,

Thanks for the AUA! Really excited about the Mega Release and even more for the future after!

My question is regarding Nate's original proposal for the KDE goals "Professionalise KDE" if I remember well. Now, I know that the goal was changed and the scope reduced to "Automatization and Systematization" but I truly believe the original proposal's spirit could have a huge impact on the whole ecosystem.

For example I remember the proposal contained the plan to hire a person working "full time" on actively finding fundings and grants and applying to them.
We got the Mega Release fundraiser but for example on the forum I found https://discuss.kde.org/t/formalities-for-stf-funding/9916 and it looks like a waste of potential to not apply for grants because no one has the time to do so.

Is there anyone at KDE, maybe among the Board, who is still trying to make the "Professionalise KDE" happen?

P.S. I know you guys just want to reach the biggest amount of people but maybe we could start having the AUAs/AMAs and similar, only on Lemmy and a post on Reddit saying that the event will be hosted on Lemmy. This would make the Lemmy community the official one and could convince people to make the switch for the "exclusive content". It's not a critic, just want to see Lemmy prosper.

linucs ,

Thanks for the thorough answer Nate, can't wait for KDE world domination!

linucs OP ,

It has the same vibe but I don't think that is it. I didn't know TBoGT so I was thinking about another song.

linucs OP ,

I just copied the title of the youtube video

linucs ,

I would recommend RethinkDNS instead of NetGuard, it has the same firewall capabilities but it also lets you change DNS (with Dnscrypt / DoT / DoH) and also lets you connect to a Wireguard VPN. It's amazing.

linucs ,

Forgot to mention also the possibility of adding blocklists to block ads, trackers and everything you want. It's really the best of its kind!

linucs ,

In the proxy tab you can add wireguard profiles. E.g. for the protonvpn one you need to download the wireguard configuration files and add it there

linucs ,

Yeah Android only lets you run one VPN app at a time, you just need RethinkDNS because it acts as a firewall, (proton)VPN wireguard client, adblocker and DNS resolver

"If you tell a lie big enough and tell it frequently enough, people will eventually come to believe it". What is an example of this happening today?

I would really rather that these were actual examples, and not conspiracy theories. We all have our own unsubstantiated ideas about what shadowy no-gooders are doing, but I'd rather hear about things that are actually happening.

linucs ,

Who's yelling at this time of the night?

linucs ,

I think Logseq [1] does a very good job at basically everything you've mentioned

linucs ,

No I'm pretty sure Katex support is built in

    I think they should've done a community contest like for the wallpaper. But even more I think Plasma (or more in general KDE) should work on brand identity first and then, given the direction, decide a clear, original and distinct logo / wallpaper / whatever style.

    Does a colorscheme (for desktop or app themes) optimized for "Blue light filter" exist?

    I found this post on Hacker News news.ycombinator.com/item?id=38421110and in it a comment that sparked my interest: “Only tangentially related but: I have a blue light filter (Plasma night color) always on on my laptop because I feel like, in combination with brightness reduction, I get less eye strain. I’ve always wondered...

    linucs ,

    I agree, the rules in AskReddit were too limiting

    linucs ,

    Pipewire is a true blessing for Linux

    linucs OP ,

    This is a great suggestion, thanks!

    linucs OP ,

    Guess you’re right, too bad I’m not a kid anymore.

    Cool thing about being an EUer is that I don’t need to be undocumented, I could travel, work, live in another EU country with a different language from mine without a problem, but I currently busy in my own country and want to learn french

    linucs OP ,

    Of course books are very valuable, but I would say that for language learning, at least for me, they are insufficient since they lack people pronouncing the words

    linucs ,

    Scrubs is still my favorite. If you want a (very) little gem I would recommend Over the Garden Wall. Such a beautiful Autumn atmosphere, awesome music, a great story.

    Is there a difference between "Presentation Mode" and "Manually block sleep and screen locking" in Plasma DE?

    I have been curious for some time now if there is any difference between them besides one being located in “Display Configuration” and the other in “Power Management”. They seem a bit redundant to me so as if the folks from the Plasma team weren’t sure where to put and how to name it, lol. >.

    linucs ,

    I think presentation mode inhibits notifications so that if you’re presenting something, your presentation won’t be interrupted. Can’t remember where I read it though

    linucs ,

    Can you please explain how you did it or link to a guide explaining it? It could be useful to many people

    linucs ,

    But I really hope this sets a precedent for all other countries, need money to finance something? Just tax the shit out of Facebook. Of course it’s a joke, we should properly tax them in the first place, or better yet force them not to exploit people data for profit

    Any weather apps that use the NOAA api?

    I’ve been looking for a weather app to use but every app uses AccuWeather which actually gets their data from NOAA (which is public and always free to use) and then repackage it for their own profit, so I would like to not give them any traffic if possible and go straight to NOAA. Does anyone know any apps like this?

    linucs OP ,

    Thanks, didn’t think about the difference, english is not my 1st language

    linucs ,

    Awesome news! Hopefully more and more distros will catch up too.

    linucs ,

    pre-installed

    You don’t use Arch, btw

    linucs ,

    I don’t know if this could help even with allergies but I usually do this piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=I47xi2F3W9g and it’s awesome

    linucs ,

    I felt the same way but then I read this and changed my mind about it blog.joinmastodon.org/…/what-to-know-about-thread…

    Thinking about it I’m in an European country where Whatsapp is the default messenger app, if it had interoperability I could be on another FOSS app and be tracked by Meta just when I talk to people who are on Whatsapp and be free when talking to people not on Whatsapp, this could be great to make people switch “clients”, which is damn hard now because “everyone is on Whatsapp”. Interoperability is the shit and we should embrace it!

    linucs ,

    Not if I’m talking to someone on Protonmail, Tutanota, etc.

    Now would you prefer to have the possibility to talk privately at least to someone, even if just a handful of people, or be forced to never talk privately because you must use gmail to talk to anyone else?

    linucs ,

    I said in a different thread but: It’s a good, and very scary, reading but I would argue that it does not directly translate here because Lemmy / Kbin and Reddit are not social media per se, they are content focused instead of being person focus. Here no one cares who you are, we are all here for content. The XMPP EEE succeeded because once defederated people were not able to talk to their friends, defederating Threads would cut us off from strangers and their content, it’s not a big deal.

    We’ll see what happens, hopefully the Fediverse will not be another free social media attempt killed by greedy corporates.

    linucs ,

    God I love FOSS, I contributed with a very tiny feature but it made me feel so good knowing I contributed to a beautiful, community owned, project

    linucs ,

    I propose to make it a 3 day party. Only one rule: no poop
