My first real attempt at ricing. Working with Hyprland. Color palette inspiration from Kripton-GTK with Gruvbox-Dark icon set.

For a new user who just wants a good OS to start with, Pop_OS is a fine choice. A little surprised you had trouble with Mint identifying your WiFi card but, I see others have posted on it. Mint is typically my go-to recommendation for new Linux users.

I believe LMDE includes the proprietary stuff you might need and, as others have said, Debian 12 is starting to as well.

Remember when Mitch McConnell said Trump couldn't be impeached because he'd already left office and, therefore, it should be left to the criminal justice system instead?

The thing is, there's "iwd" and "wpa_supplicant". You use either one or the other, but not both. Sources like the Gentoo handbook will tell you that but, not all Wiki's do as good a job of pointing that out <...looking directly at you Arch...>.

"Plutocracy" is the term for "Financial Oligarchy" BTW. Worth knowing the term if you live in the U.S. since that's kinda what we have here these days :/

Although, speaking as a fan of Mint who used it as my "daily driver" for years, I think the time has come for them to switch from Ubuntu to Debian and embrace Wayland. I know that, if I'd stayed with Mint, I've have gone to LMDE by now.

@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

Have to agree. They had a great start by enhancing Debian and being user friendly but, then they just kind of lost their way.

Meta discontinues Messenger Lite for Android, it will be unavailable after Sep 18. Users need to install regular Messenger app instead ( beehaw.org )

I have not found any news article on this on a whim. Because my friends and family, I need to use Facebook Messenger, and Messenger Lite was a OK client - lightweight, no unnecessary features, etc., compared to the regular Messenger app....

I like to use OpenRGB to monitor operating temperature. The CPU fan reads the CPU temp, the window in front of my graphics card reads the GPU temp, and, for now, I have my keyboard reading the NVMe temp (just recently installed the NVMe). My mouse color is set by Piper/libratbag so I know what preset I'm using.

jkmooney OP ,
@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

You want the Hardware Sync plugin

jkmooney OP ,
@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

For controlling addressable RGB lights. The Hardware Sync plugin allows you to use various PC status inputs to set the light colors

I don't know, Linus is still trying to excuse and justify. It would seem taking him out of the driver's seat was the right call. As for the rest, they are responding because their backs are against the wall. Time will tell if they will really make any changes.

I'm not really that familiar with LTT. I did subscribe to his channel, mainly because I was bemused by him borking his PC by rushing an install of Pop_OS and Steam. ("yes, do as I say", if you recall). Reading the PC Gamer article, it appears he did the same, "just drive on without thinking it through" approach to this prototype cooler. I haven't watched a lot of his videos and anyone can make a mistake but, there is an expectation that a "tech expert" show a bit of diligence. Plus, if he's showcasing a vendor, he should make sure they have every chance to shine.

I think my favorite part of this is that "man rm" is probably a lot simpler than feeding this question to an AI bot.

For those new to Linux......no, "rm -f <file>" will not do what the AI said it would do ;) Open a terminal, type "man rm" and it'll tell you everything about it...

Been Alpha, and now Closed Beta testing an new MMO, Palia. (https://www.palia.com/). It's a "casual" MMO more around crafting and community building than the typical "Murder Hobo" dynamic. If it sounds interesting, check it out. If you do sign up, use my link (below) because I can get some cool in-game stuff if you do and you'll get an in-game fruit basket when it goes open Beta.

I've used both. Manjaro, in their attempt to be "user friendly", winds up disconnecting you from what makes Arch good. EndeavorOS, on the other hand, is basically Arch nicely set up for a "daily driver" PC along with some nice tools of their own you can use or not at your discretion. I've also used just plain Arch and I actually prefer EndeavourOS of the three.

jkmooney ,
@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

I generally tell people on Manjaro to stay off the AUR. If it's not in their "curated" repository, then just go with the flatpak.

In the aviation world, an experimental aircraft may not be used for "compensation or hire". The only exception is that a kitplane manufacturer is allowed to give demo flights.

Those are the two I'm most familiar with in my profession, at least as far as civilian authorities are concerned. Can't really say "no" and, I'm pretty sure neither can you. On the other hand, feel free to prove me wrong with a counter example. :)

I suspect I will eventually go to just one account. If this "Memmy" app essentially connects the two, that could be a good solution. Do you use your same account for both? I created separate. Here I am on Lemmy

As I move between the two options, I think I kind of prefer the "simplicity" of the Lemmy interface as well. I wonder if I should throw my hat in the ring and create a server myself?

Ahh Facebook....

jkmooney OP ,
@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

On FB, I generally only post to "Friends" or "Close Friends". Yet, I keep getting these "Suggested for You" posts in my feed. Some are advertisers, many are clearly from bot-farms trying to start arguments. I mean, the Fediverse may have it's bad actors, but not on the coordinated scale that Facebook has.

Reddit account.....deleted. Kbin seems to have a better "signal to noise" ratio IYKWIM

Did you ever have a classmate that pretended to be a vampire or some other supernatural creature? How much did they commit to it? ( kbin.social )

I had a couple classmates that pretended to be vampires back in elementary and middle school. They’d pretend their Koolaid was blood, complain about the sunlight, and bite their friends a lot. Not enough to draw blood, though. I haven’t kept up with most of them, but one guy is a teacher now. He seems pretty normal.

No, but I've pretended to be cisgender in order to survive

I suppose it depends upon how it was made and what they do with it once they have it. If it's hoarding wealth for wealth's sake then, yea, probably an issue. It seems though, there are some that have obtained wealth and chose philanthropy.

Gotta say, kbin.social is looking more like what I wanted from Reddit in the first place than Reddit does.... I may be dropping that account soon.

PSA: every interaction you make with various posts on kbin is viewable to everyone. ( kbin.social )

If you click on the "more" button under a comment or link there will be an activity tab. In this tab you can see everyone who has boosted, favourited or reduced the post. I'm not sure if this a...

As long as that's made clear up front, OK. It might make it tougher for online support communities within kbin. Even if you used an alternate account, you wouldn't be able to share anything too personal. On the other hand, maybe kbin is saying that's a responsibility they can't take on. They can always link to external support sites I suppose.

Brand new here. Been kinda "poking around" the past couple weeks but it's looking more and more like a viable alternative to Reddit. Just wondering if there's a way to display only the magazines I'm subscribed to?

jkmooney OP ,
@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

Thanks, I'll need to educate myself on the tools used to install it first :)

jkmooney OP ,
@jkmooney@kbin.social avatar

@BrerChicken I know about that, I was looking for a way to get the list, or, perhaps, just sort the magazines so that subscribed lists first.

@BrerChicken Found it, thanks :)
