@brainblasted also, I followed this tutorial, it's not finished yet but IMO it's a great starting point, I really recommended it: youtube.com/watch?v=Y9U9IE0gVH

@brainblasted I'm studying Vulkan for a university project. So far I'm having fun, not without lots of frustration as it's ouside of my area of expertise. If you wanna make games, I suggested you stick with a game engine like godot, otherwise just go with Vulkan. OpenGL and Vulkan have quite a bit in common, so once you become more advanced you can start cherry-picking from OpenGL tutorials.
If you have questions or whatever feel free to reach out here or on Matrix!

KDE Plasma powers the desktop of the Valve #SteamDeck.


Congrats Valve for releasing #SteamDeck! Thank you for choosing Plasma!

Valve just dropped the bomb. A cheap portable console like computer with Linux on it (and it's arch btw). It's called the .

2021 confirmed year of the Linux portable gaming console.

@martijnbraam inelegant, but you can add a permission to break out of the sandbox. This way you can install the appropriate udev rules at startup. The problem is that uninstalling won't remove the udev rules. In these cases a regular package is probably the best option.

@cassidyjames can totally relate to that, I use your exact approach myself and it's probably the easiest way around the lack of a universal time

@cassidyjames Right, I totally forgot about that. As far as you know is the elementary recoloring API compatible with the libadwaita implementation? It'd be cool to have it working seamlessly across themes/platforms.

@cassidyjames looks great! But wouldn't it be better to wait for the recoloring API? This is just work that will be redone in a different way pretty soon.

Pretty much the only thing we need is WebKitGTK builds for

Regardless, good job, it looks stunning 😄

My first ever order from jlc pcb has arrived!

It's also the first ever I designed, and it looks great! All thanks to

And it came with this jigsaw puzzle, I'm really curious to see what it is

@martijn Now I want to move my home server to ARM. Cool video, and really cool hardware!

@cassidyjames Don't know what you want to achieve, but when looking at code, consider removing the facecam altogether and highlighting specific code sections the speaker is talking about. In general, keep the video moving (not too much of course) to retain the viewer's attention.

Today I found out about and it's great! I implemented it in my website, and made a quick post about it, you can read it here: gabmus.org/posts/switching_to_

Thanks to @karmanyaahm and his latest blog post for making me learn about this!


@cassidyjames Not really what you're looking for, but for I made a thingamajig that translates markdown into Pango markup. It should detect random links as well as far as I remember. It could be a good idea to have a proper GNOME/Gtk/Pango library to do this translation, given how ubiquitous markdown is.

@bleakgrey Got the same problem in , I think it has to do with the label being interactive (links or selection). It doesn't forward any events, so the back/forward mouse button mapping only works outside of labels. Glad to see that I'm not the only one experiencing this problem! Maybe we should open an issue in the repo?

Also for discoverability

Ok, I just pushed the huge update to version 3.0.0, featuring and

I'm holding back the daemon feature as right now I don't think it's ready for mass adoption.

Still I'm expecting all hell to break loose very soon, so if you find any bugs, please bear with me as I try and fix them!

is the next app that will be updated soon, so stay tuned for that!

I would have guessed it was amazon, instead it's .

Good freaking job big tech, you manage to break the majority of the internet.

Ok, so half of the internet seems to be down. I guess maybe a big web service provider is down? Gosh the centralized web is so crappy.

Fortunately decentralized services like mastodon aren't affected.

@gamey if the performance is on the level of the pinephone, then it's probably not what I'm looking for
