"Rice" is not and never was racist for the simple reason you can't be racist to cars. Frankly people who think it is need to experience real racism which is genuinely scary. I'll grant you that rice was meant disparagingly.

I settled on openSUSE Tumbleweed because it's rolling and reliable. I chose KDE Plasma long before I chose my distro.

All my problems have been of my own making. Also I updated one computer after 18 months or thereabouts and it was fine although I wouldn't recommend leaving it that long on a computer you actually use!

But what does an Arch using vegan who does cross fit talk about first?

To be honest, a KDE badged Framework laptop would be a cool bit of kit.

Stable as in reliable and not as in unchanging

It is a huge failure in communication to pretend that distro upgrades are entirely different versions of the operating system. It does nothing but make Linux seem more complex than it actually is.

The jump in distro versions, say, from Fedora 38 to Fedora 39, is not the same as the jump from Windows 10 to Windows 11. It's more like the jump from version 23H2 to 24H2....

I’d even say that the amount of distributions or desktop environments is more scary for people.

The same people must be terrified at the super-market

It's objectively worse. Fancier but objectively worse.

Another big, distracting pop-up that has no benefit over the existing tool tip which is still distracting when it pops up unintentionally. Also the preview will use more system resources.

I created a systemd service by putting the following in /etc/systemd/system/disable-mouse-wakeup.service


[Unit]
Description=Disable Mouse wakeup triggers

[Service]
Type=oneshot
ExecStart=/bin/sh -c "echo XHC0 > /proc/acpi/wakeup"
ExecStop=/bin/sh -c "echo XHC0 > /proc/acpi/wakeup"
RemainAfterExit=yes

[Install] 
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Then I ran sudo systemctl enable --now disable-mouse-wakeup

It works perfectly on my AMD machine.

Run cat /proc/acpi/wakeup and try some of the other devices instead of XHC0 if they are enabled

Edit: Remember to run sudo systemctl stop disable-mouse-wakeup to reset them if it doesn't work

I remember it being painfully slow on my hardware which was pretty good at the time.

It's not a conky. It's the cpu, memory, net, and weather widgets that should come with KDE unless you've done a minimal install.

It's much sadder than that. It's a reference to the sci-fi show Andromeda. Million Voices

It's plasma panel

MyNameIsRichard OP ,
@MyNameIsRichard@lemmy.ml avatar

If you mean the bottom one, I

  • Added an empty panel
  • Added the Icons only Task Manager widget to it
  • Dragged my chosen programs to it from the menu
  • Went into edit mode
  • Dragged the minimum size handles to match the icons, leaving the maximum size handles as they were
  • Centred the panel

I don't think there was any more to it.

Is mdns allowed?

A quick scan through the services in Yast firewall revealed that there is a sane service too. Is that enabled?

The latest version probably hasn't passed qc yet

openSUSE Tumbleweed. It's rolling and reliable.

I finally nuked windows

I have been daily driving a dual booted laptop for the past two years. After a year of distro hopping I settled with fedora + kde and never looked back. I really liked the auto nvidia driver config and it made everything so pleasant to work. Since the last 8 or 9 months I decided to do gaming using bottles and proton ge. I...

Wayland on Nvidia gives me a black screen with mouse trails so your mileage may vary

It's where we get the phrase "Doubting Thomas" from.

Who puts an exclamation mark in their name? Aside from Yahoo! I suppose.

And Westward Ho!

Is it actually dangerous to run Firefox as root?

I have a few Linux servers at home that I regularly remote into in order to manage, usually logged into KDE Plasma as root. Usually they just have several command line windows and a file manager open (I personally just find it more convenient to use the command line from a remote desktop instead of directly SSH-ing into the...

Not true. While you won't always have to enter your password, not every command will have elevated rights.
