However, I’ll still keep i3 around for the following reasons:

- Japanese IME doesn’t work in Kitty under Wayland.
- No working graphical colour picker under Wayland.
- While there's a feature similar to unclutter built into Sway, which hides the mouse cursor in case of inactivity, it needs to be switched off for games to work properly, which is a little cumbersome.

Using Sway (Wayland compositor and i3 clone) as a daily driver

After a few weeks, I think it’s very usable:

- It includes nearly all features I’ve become accustomed to on i3 and X in general.
- Non-Wayland applications (including games) work very well through XWayland.
- I actually have fewer graphical glitches with my old AMD card.
- Kitty (terminal manager) starts up faster than under X.

@hund “DuckDuckGo feels a bit too cooperate-y”

Can you elaborate?

TIL that Hedgewars (libre Worms clone) v1.0 was released about a month ago.

FreeCS: “a free-software reimplementation of Counter-Strike 1.5 running on the FTE QuakeWorld engine”

I've been playing around with Sway + Waybar for almost two days. It feels suprisingly good.

@hund It looks way better than the default Windows 10 theme IMO.

Solarized colour theme for Searx

To test it, install Stylus[1] in your browser (if you don’t have it yet), and then open the stylesheet[2].


You can optionally change the background and text colours from dark to light as well as add a custom domain. (Right now, it only applies to four instances.)

Todo: add a README, maybe tweak the colour of the borders.

@Ghosty @hund Next time they may leave the fan out altogether and say, “100% noise reduction with *no* change in stability!”

The Longest Journey HD mod: AI upscaled backgrounds and cutscenes.

Requires (the development version of) ResidualVM, which allows you to play it natively under Linux on modern hardware.

Hi Fediverse 👋

let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial

Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔

This info reached me (@tobias ) the next day via my German version @swisode .

As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂

What colour theme do you use for the terminal?

I'd been using onedark for years, recently tried one generated by pywal[1], and now thinking about switching to a dark one from base16[2].


@emergencyexit I also use Compton (with i3), mainly for vsync and transparent background in terminals.
