TIL that the systemd devs for a long time entertained the idea of implementing libsystemd-terminal and systemd-consoled. Thankfully, they seem to have reconsidered.

Been using for, I don't know, many years now, but decided to give a serious try. Let's see how this goes...

1.13.0 is out 🎉

I personally like the new jump-to-previous-or-next-prompt feature, and the support for "wm-capabilities", which allows us to skip rendering e.g. the minimize CSD button on compositors that doesn't support the minimize operation.

A kitty keyboard protocol issue affecting neovim and kakoune (and more) users with keyboard layouts with dead keys have been fixed.

Well, just awesome...

I ordered home delivery of furniture, between 17:00 and 22:00.

Delivery guy calls over an hour ahead (instructions said 15-30 min). I don't pick up, do he decides I'm not home and cancels the delivery. Then turns off his phone (I tried to call back multiple times).

Called the company I bought the furniture from; "we tried to call him, but he doesn't pick up". I'm like, yeah, I know. So, got to reschedule for another day 😴.

At least I got the money back for the delivery.

Harfbuzz 5.1.0 has been released, and includes the patch for broken bitmap fonts. Yay for .

If you use the ZSH snippet from the wiki to emit OSC-7 on PWD changes in , you might want to add this to the top of the osc7() function:

local LC_ALL=C
export LC_ALL

5.0 breaks bitmap font rendering in and all other based applications (assuming fcft has been built with harfbuzz support, of course).

github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/i

Fix has been pushed to harfbuzz, but as far as I can tell, has not yet been released.

Is there a way to stop d-bus from autostarting services?

I mean completely disable it, not just shadow individual services.

just got support for jumping between prompts!

Been using it for about one day, and already cannot image going without it :)

@omnipotens just saw the "Always send e-mail notifications" option. Let's see if that makes a difference...

Anyone else here on linuxrocks that hasn't been getting email notifications for some time now?

@omnipotens

Anyone else having issues with RAID devices gone missing on (or ) after updating to kernel 5.18?

Trying to convince IKEA that it's their mail servers that are broken, not mine.

I did get them to file an internal issue report. But, I don't have much hope anyone will actually look into it...

Trying instead of as init system.

Liking it so far. dinit is a bit more user friendly than s6.

Not sure if there's a bug in s6, the kernel, or if it's a "feature", but with s6 I had a lot more wakeups per second, which is bad for the battery.

I've been working on OT-SVG support in the whole day, and is finally starting to get somewhere...

TIL has its own input methods (should have known...).

Who needs Wayland IMEs when there's (set-input-method) and (toggle-input-method) :D

Arch now has emacs, emacs-nox and emacs-nativecomp packages. But no emacs-nox-nativecomp :/

Luckily, community packages are just plain PKGBUILDs that are easy to hack :D

~% pacman -Qi emacs-nox-nativecomp
Name : emacs-nox-nativecomp
Version : 28.1-6
