What would happen if I use tor browser while using archtorify? I find it helpful to be able to change the tor circuit with a button. I wish there was something like that in firefox when using torify.

I think I’ll modify archtorify to change the circuit every so often. Perhaps I can check for internet speed and choose different circuits until it’s above a given speed.

So it depends on whether each application allows setting Socks 5? Is there a list somewhere to check a list of files that allow that configuration? I would need at least alacritty, element and a couple others. And how could I block the rest of the connections that don’t go through Socks 5?

How do I configure tor system-wide on linux?
So instead of using only tor when using tor browser, I can use tor while using firefox, the command line, etc. I use Manjaro Cinnamon. I know I'll have to be careful with emails and some other applications that aren't encrypted.

Random username generator?
I usually go to reddit and copy the first username that I see. Is there a quicker way to get a username like *noun_adjective_number*?

How do you easily share contact information between Android and linux?
That is the last thing left for me to do before finally deleting the gmail account.

Why the screen to body ratio of smartphone displays has improved faster than other monitors?
While TVs, laptops and PC monitors still have bezels for the most part, smartphones have accomplished a much superior screen to body ratio. Why is that?

Why is IRC still used?
You can't even see the history in many channels.

Don’t know if this goes here or in /AskLemmy, but just wanted to know the best FOSS social networks, why are there so good? What would be the propietary equivalent?

FOSS social networks don’t sell your data or show you adds. Have you heard of alternativeto.net? You can see the different open source alternatives to any software you want in there

I think mozilla TTS is the best. But I think this questions should have been asked in Open Source.

I’ve installed this one and it feels much better.

Is there an Android keyboard with fuzzy word finding?
I've replaced all my apps for FOSS alternatives, but the keyboard I have now seems very difficult to write in compared to what I used to have. It just doesn't recommend me appropriate enough words to have to write less. I want something that I can add different languages and it has a fuzzy finder to let me select words by typing only a few characters. Is there something like that?

The problem is that there is a scary red banner in the wiki that says:

Warning: AUR helpers are not supported by Arch Linux. You should become familiar with the manual build process in order to be prepared to troubleshoot problems.

I don’t what to find out what they’ll do to me if I go and ask there XD. Kidding, I actually hadn’t seen it.

In Arch Linux, how do I install a list of packages from a file with an AUR helper?
In Arch Linux I want to get a list of the packages installed and install all packages from a file. But I want to include packages from the AUR. With pacman I can get the [list of installed packages](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Pacman/Tips_and_tricks#List_of_installed_packages): ``` $ pacman -Qqe > pkglist.txt ``` And [install packages from a list](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Pacman/Tips_and_tricks#Install_packages_from_a_list): ``` # pacman -S --needed - < pkglist.txt `` `

I have to substitute zplug, what do you recommend?
zplug is giving me errors an since it is no longer maintained I may not be able to fix them. So if I were to change my plugin manager which one would you recommend?

Why is bash still used for the Unix shell?
Why aren't new terminals that use another language? It seems so antiquated getting errors for not writing the functions in the correct order among other things.


pop doesn’t support folders, just an inbox. it’s old and basic

mutt-wizard is quick and very clever and will probably give you a working config, but it can contain a lot of detail that you might not need or understand

oh, local folders. if you try to save to them, I think they should be created

Should I write my real name and email address in a GnuPG key?
I'm going through the trouble of changing all the accounts I've used for [AnonAddy](https://app.anonaddy.com/) aliases, to not give my private account to anyone. So when creating this GPG key, I should just give it an AnonAddy alias right? Something like `public-CYwb8@user.anonaddy.com`. ``` GnuPG needs to construct a user ID to identify your key. Real name: Email address: Comment: ```

How do I setup Neomutt with POP3 and an XDG path?
Is this configuration what I'm looking for? ``` set pop_host = pops://username@mail.server.com:xxxx set mbox_type=Maildir set folder = "$XDG_CACHE_HOME"/mail # default mailbox location set spoolfile = +/ # unread or inbox set mbox = +read set record = +sent set postponed = +drafts set include # a copy of the message you are replying ``` Are those folders created automatically or do they need to exist? And what happens if I use this? ``` set pop_authenticators = "digest-md5" ``` Inspired by [ask1234560/dotfiles_bspwm](https://github.com/ask1234560/dotfiles_bspwm), [rgaiacs/dotfiles](https://github.com/rgaiacs/dotfiles/blob/master/.muttrc.pop3), [man page](https://neomutt.org/man/neomuttrc). I've just learned about [Mutt Wizard](https://yewtu.be/watch?v=mPiQuWbF57M). Should I use that?

It was a proper answer which was deleted by the creator itself.

It looks wrong that there are many answers to a non existing comment.

What to do with deleted answers?
Someone deleted a popular [answer to a post](https://lemmy.ml/post/161048/comment/114179) and now I don't have a way to make it look right. What should I do in such cases?

How can I use Librera PRO to listen to a website using TTS?
Before, I used *@Voice Aloud Reader* to read websites, but I'm trying to use only FOSS software now. Is there a way I could turn an [online documentation](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/index.html) into an ebook to listen with *Librera PRO*? Can *Librera PRO* be used to read websites?

I fixed it with by using a different app.

Ok thanks. I had seen three issues talking about it so I thought they had already done it.

I found it lacking at best. I didn’t even see the option to change the bitrate before recording.

Is there a FOSS Android app to record audio?
I've tried *Voice Recorder* from F-droid, but for some reason it isn't working. I've recently changed the operating system from MIUI 12 to Lineage OS, so I don't know if FOSS software may have issues recording audio.

This seems helpful but after following it I still don’t see any italics. Perhaps I haven’t configured it properly in neovim.

What are the most popular LSPs for Neovim?
I've installed a few LSPs. I want to install all the popular ones to do it once and forget about it. So which ones do you have installed? ``` install_neovim_lsp() { sudo npm i -g cssmodules-language-server vscode-langservers-extracted sql-language-server typescript typescript-language-server bash-language-server pip install pyright } ```

How to define a family font fallback in Alacritty?
Would it be like this? ``` family: Hack Nerd Font family: SauceCodePro Nerd Font family: Souce Code Pro family: Monospace ```

So it’s already a feature? I haven’t seen a way to bump.

I fracking hate discord. People use it for everything now, not just gaming, for the convenience of an easy to use cross-platform application. Almost every message board on the internet has been deserted and moved to discord. And it makes it so difficult to find anything useful. Every time I want to find something there I feel as if no matter how much time I spend using the search I’m never going to find it. And when I ask I feel as if the same question has probably been asked hundreds of times before and makes me feel dumb for not being able to find the answer. If you read the messages as they arrive, with just a couple of servers that you follow, your day is gone and you can’t do anything else. Of course it makes it convenient not having to create an account for each website like before, but so does the fediverse. I won’t even go into the privacy concerns I have with so many people feeding their life into discord’s database.

Nice, I’m going to make a python script to import the content, probably with selenium. What delay do I use between requests.
