The KDE Userbase Wiki has just received a makeover. https://carlschwan.eu/2019/07/12/new-userbase.html
Previm: Live preview markdown (and a few other formats) in the browser of your choice. No external dependencies required.
Antimicro has been abandoned. Again. https://github.com/juliagoda/antimicro
Can anyone recommend a good alternative (apart from qjoypad and sc-controller)?
Distro recommendation for Raspberry Pi?
I've recently got my RPi 3B+ and tried Raspbian. It's decent but I wanted something more bleeding edge, so I put Manjaro ARM on it.
Although I love Manjaro (been using it for almost 5 years on PC), there's no sound and Pulseaudio shows no sound device when run in a headless setup (logged in through SSH only and HDMI is connected to an AV receiver).
Can you recommend a fairly up-to-date and easy to use distro in case I can't resolve this with Manjaro?

@hund How much time does it normally take to update the database? For me, having also two HDDs, it took about a minute.
Taking a look at my many years old Linux notes, I remember that I used to use `locate` for finding files quickly. However, as I bought my first SSD, I stopped using it because I didn't want my whole file system to be scanned every day for a db update.
Today, however, I learned that `mlocate` is also available, and is called with the `locate` command according to the Gentoo Wiki. https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mlocate
Does it mean that mlocate has replaced locate? Also, how taxing is it?
nncli - NextCloud Notes Command Line Interface
"You can access your notes via a customizable console GUI that implements vi-like keybinds or via a simple command line interface that you can script."
"Notes can be viewed/created/edited in both an online and offline mode. All changes are saved to a local cache on disk and automatically sync’ed when nncli is brought online."
"Kiten is a Japanese reference and study tool. It features an English to Japanese and Japanese to English dictionary, as well as a Kanji dictionary." https://kde.org/applications/education/org.kde.kiten
@hund On /r/redditalternatives there are already several Reddit clones listed that are open source. One of them is notabug, which looks EXACTLY how Reddit used to look.
I think the problem is that none of these are compatible with each other technology- and/or policy-wise and their individual userbases are quite small.
I'm rooting for any Reddit clones that are compatible with ActivityPub right now.
@hund Given how popular rtv is (judging by GitHub stars), I guess someone will fork it and that fork continues to live on.
Buku - Browser-independent bookmark manager in the terminal https://github.com/jarun/Buku
- Make your bookmarks portable, sync them however you want
- Open bookmarks in ANY application (use the variable BROWSER like `BROWSER=mpv buku -o [id]` to open a link in mpv)
- Import from Firefox, Chromium, or Chrome
- Export/import from/to HTML, Markdown, or Orgfile
- Use multiple databases (with `--db [dbname].db`) and encrypt them so that others can't see what you saved (͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
