sway 1.2-rc2 released:
It's pretty amazing that you can develop an app using KDE's libraries in KDE's IDE, have wonderful artists make your project artwork in KDE's painting app and edit a video about it all in KDE's video editor. The number of organizations that could tell the same story can be counted on one hand. The scope of what the #KDE community does is stunning.
I wrote a script to use fzf like an application launcher.
- It keeps a history of recent commands to make rerunning important commands easy. Just select the command hit Tab and then Enter.
- It gives the option of running new commands in a terminal or in the background, and it will remember your choice for future runs.
- The user is in control of how commands are executed. I just pass the commands to swaymsg exec but you can run them with whatever you want.
I just got #RedReader earlier today to (finally) replace the mobile #Reddit client. It seems pretty lightweight, I haven't had a crash yet, and the UI is very uncluttered. So it solves pretty much all of my grievances I had with the official app.
If you use Reddit I recommend checking it out https://github.com/QuantumBadger/RedReader
Manjaro installs FreeOffice by default
Uhm... Manjaro, let's have a talk.
One of the greatest things about GNU/Linux distributions is the free software that comes with them.
AND BY FREE WE DON'T REFER TO THE PRICE NOR TO SOME WORD IN THE SOFTWARE'S NAME. WE MEAN LIBRE.
The fuck are you doing making partnerships and installing proprietary software by default?
You're sad that Windows stopped at 10 and you want to be Windows 11?
By the way I keep getting "500 internal server error" every time I try to upload an image @omnipotens is this a known issue?
I upgraded Manjaro in place into Arch Linux, _seemingly_ without breaking anything https://i.imgur.com/PNate6n.png
I have brought life back into my decade old laptop with Void Linux! It is super lightweight, only 3.4gb on disk, and uses ~130mb of RAM after opening Sway (musl btw).
The package selection isn't the best (compromises have been made) but I have enough to do basic web browsing, ssh, and use mpv. Which is all I really expected to do on this.
Wayland-related project shoutout
wl-clipboard was causing neovim to dance around and be crazy so I installed wl-clipboard-rs instead and it works great, check it out if it's relevant to you https://github.com/YaLTeR/wl-clipboard-rs it seems like an under appreciated project!
Funny issue https://github.com/neovim/neovim/issues/9806 heheh
