Not yet, but I live in fear.

I did make the mistake of mounting a drive while I was in the middle of formatting another one. It just halted the operation so it wasn’t too bad, but I try to be more careful now.

No thank you, nazis.

To be fair there are a lot of English-speaking nazis that end up on VK after they get canceled from other platforms.

I kind of love the Japanese Internet. Those old-school sites where everything is in plain HTML. That period before the iPhone where Japan was producing all kinds of futuristic flip-phones was great.

This is mine: https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/1362/custom-hot-corners/

I’m pretty sure that’s the one. I use hot corners a lot when I’m using a mouse / trackpad to quickly display all open applications, or to show the desktop.

If it gets integrated into Gnome I probably wouldn’t use any other extensions.

I think you can set up your pihole with a VPN for remote use too.

I just searched and found this tutorial but there should be more around:


In that case I would look into switching ISPs, or maybe connect another router and put the ISP-supplied one in bridge mode if possible.

However you feel about RMS, I think we can all agree that the FSF goofed up.

Whether it was a defiant announcement that they won’t let freedom-hating SJWs cancel Stallman, or an announcement of accountability, apology, or steps to address his behaviour — they should have made some kind of statement instead of just letting Stallman himself announce that he was returning without much explanation.

You shouldn’t be using an ISP-supplied router anyway, right?

You don’t know what they’ve put in the firmware for remote management.

Even buying the same model router from a store to replace the ISP one would be preferable.

I much prefer macOS to Windows, and Gnome is a good transition from macOS.

I use a trackpad, and never found the need to use min / max buttons. I use the upper left hot corner to display all windows, and lower left to display the desktop.

On Mac I use 4 finger swipes a lot to transition between workspaces for applications I want to use full screen. So those gestures in Gnome 40 sound like a welcome addition, and I’m sure they’ll go some ways to convince more Mac users to try Linux.

I know Gnome and especially Pop!_OS are meant to be very keyboard-centric. But I’m quite used to using a trackpad.

Well, I’m transitioning into using TWMs like Sway now, but Gnome is definitely my favorite DE.

I’m also forced to use Windows a lot, but don’t enjoy it at all.

How’s does the build feel? Is it solid? How are the hinges, etc?

Full Wayland setup on Arch Linux
This article is a guide for achieving a full-as-possible Wayland setup on Arch Linux.

Let me confirm right now.

Edit: Ok, yeah. After I replied to this comment I still had one unread. I’ll check the bug tracker, thanks.

Not sure…

What I’m thinking is an additional “mark all as read button” for situations when you may have many replies. And also if a comment is replied to it should automatically be marked as read.

What I find is sometimes I have a notification. I open it and reply. Then I still have a notification icon, and have to go back and mark as read.

Edit: re-reading the OP. Is there already a mark all as read button? Never mind.

I don’t use Brave because of the cryptocurrency thing. “Basic Attention Token” sound dystopian. And if handing over your data for free to corporations is a bad idea, it’s also a bad idea even if you get a couple of bucks worth of cryptocurrency in the process.

Brave seems like it very much comes from the right wing “Libertarian” ideology.

Federated social media platforms may always be smaller than the for-profit platforms which use all kinds of tricks to turn people into commodities: tracking users, using targeted advertising, having psychologists on the development team to “gamify” everything, incentivizing people to turn themselves into “content creators” and “influencers”, create and exploit addictive behaviour by having infinite scrolling pages and adjusting content based on “engagement” data.

So Lemmy won’t make you rich - but I think you’re ok with that.

They are responsible though. Anyone who creates technology should consider how it could be used and implement features for safety.

The consequence of not taking a stance to protect the targets of fascist rhetoric and violence is that you quickly get a space dominated by fascists. And the consequence of that is your project needs to be shut down or abandoned.

Take a look around at platforms like Parler, Voat, and Gab for some real world examples. The slur filter is completely justified. The developers should receive community support for recognising and taking on their responsibility.

If you’ve never read it, I recommend Le Guin’s translation of the Dao De Jing. This blog post has a few sample pages.

That’s great. Personally I don’t use KDE, and haven’t even received my Pinephone yet, but it’s great that they’ve picked a default distro - and it sounds like Manjaro / KDE teams have earned it.

I’ll start with Mobian but will try a few distros.

I think it’s important to focus on a single distro / user experience to get it to a standard where it can be used as a daily driver.

There’s plenty you could post about China’s history, language, people, food, art, landscape, etc. if you don’t like what you see.

It seems like many people who claim to be critical of both the US and China are much more critical of China, and are also more likely to make generalizations about China, and Chinese people when they can more easily make distinctions about the US and American people.

If you’re actually equally critical of the US, Canada, Australia, etc. then you should be just as vocal about PRISM, ICE, treatment of asylum seekers, wage slavery, police, prisons, and so on.

Thank you for creating it, and congratulations on the release.

I’ve been using the beta version for a while now, and it’s working well.

I haven’t encountered any major issues / crashes.

Is it helpful to have suggestions / feature requests? I’m sure there are improvements you’re working on and don’t want to bother you with things that aren’t specifically bugs.

Have you used the Apollo app for Reddit? On that app I like the “compact” appearance as it fits a lot on the page. I think another thing I like is being able to drag a post to the left for upvote, or drag a bit further left for downvote.

Anyway, great work!

Hmmm… ok let’s put a pin in that idea :-)

Maybe a contributors page with a short note of what they’ve worked on. And allow the contributor to post a single link of their own next to their name - maybe some would want to link to their favorite organisation, a personal portfolio / github, or their own patreon / cryptocurrency address, etc.

As a user I might see that a particular person has implemented some accessibility feature, language, or other function, follow their link and read about or contribute to whatever they’ve linked to.

I don’t think I’m saying what you think I’m saying.

At first I wasn’t sure about the slur filter, because I thought it could be a bit of clumsy implementation as it could catch a lot of false positives.

But in practice I haven’t noticed it once. I don’t need to punch down on disadvantaged minority groups and call people slurs, so it’s not a problem. If it did catch me, it could be for some slur I had been using without thinking, in which case I would think about it and stop using that word. If it did catch me for a regular word I’m sure I could easily work around it.

Now I think it’s actually a great piece of social hacking, and I fully support it. It seems to annoy and keep away the right kinds of people.

As @realcaseyrollins@lemmy.ml said in this thread: “I’m not active here, but I would be if there wasn’t hard-coded censorship on the software”. To me that shows that it’s working.

We don’t need another reddit full of “centrist” free speech warriors. And we certainly don’t need another 4chan, 8chan, gab, voat, or parler.

It’s nice to have at least one place where as a minority you don’t have to wade through a bunch of slurs and insults and be constantly gaslit by the same circular arguments of people trying to convince you they’re fighting for some noble cause.

If a community is to have autonomy it needs some consensus on rules and standards of behavior. If we don’t want to have an authority ruling over us, we need to have responsibility, hold each other accountable, and create an environment where the most vulnerable in our community feel protected and like people are actually going to fight for them.

Thanks. It took me a few tries but I got Arch + Sway up and running on a VM. It’s nice. Feels pretty comfy already. I think I can make this work as my daily driver.

I like a righteous nerd rant. I’ll admit to not knowing much of anything about X11 or Wayland because I’m kind of new to GNU/Linux and I’m not that smart. I was kind of excited to just start getting into tiling window managers. I tried i3, then xmonad, and had settled on making my daily driver an Arch install with xmonad to try to learn more. But it looks like that’s a no go with Wayland.

After learning a little about Wayland it seems that it isn’t a matter of Wayland just being ready at some point in time. It’s a protocol that needs to be implemented into software - that means it needs a community of users and developers to begin actively using it, reporting and fixing issues for individual applications.

It’s sad if it’s gotten to the point that it’s affecting the mental health of the devs who are doing their best to build cool tech and free us from the evils of proprietary software.

Alright then, after reading this I think I’ll see how I go with Arch + Sway and try to solve any issues that come up.

It’s the most efficient self-assembling panopticon we’ve got.

The article is a bit unhinged.

I had a look at distrotube’s video where he talks about being banned. Looks like it was because he got into an argument with someone because he was defending Trump, saying that he’s not a white supremacist. In his video, dt points out that the guy that banned him isn’t even black, as if you need to be black to denounce white supremacy.

This article side-steps that and tries to make it sound like it had something to do with making videos about software like LibreWolf.

The article also goes on to say “Controversial voices or dissenting views are often what drives change in society, sometimes progressively. We’ve seen over the years whose views get suppressed and by who…”


Yeah… I don’t think defenders of white supremacists are the controversial voices we need to advance society.

Started with CentOS, then Ubuntu on servers. I finally started to get comfortable in Linux on desktop with Pop!_OS. Now I’m getting into Arch and exploring i3wm and xmonad.


I haven’t really looked into this, and I know it’s focused on reading but I wonder if this could be useful?

Communique from the Indigenous Revolutionary Clandestine Committee General Command of the Zapatista Army for National Liberation

Sure, I’m happy to do that if it’s needed. If anyone else would like to take on the role of admin for /c/anarchism just speak up.

That makes the most sense to me. A community may get a spike in users one day, but users / month would give a more accurate overview.

Oh, we both came up with lemmios. I swear I didn’t read your post first.

You could continue with the lemur theme and go with a species of lemur like “Indri”.

Or you could go back to the rat theme. “Nezumi” means rat / mouse in Japanese, which I think sounds cool.

Or since it’s an iOS app you could mix Lemmy with Apple, or iOS sounding names like “lemmios”.

I think it is pretty constantly in the news. But some reasons why it may not be are fatigue, and also the same reason climate change, melting glaciers, and bleaching of coral aren’t in the news - while they’re disastrous events, and should be taking priority over everything else, they’re just not entertaining enough.

If a plane crashes, or a car explodes, even if no one died it will be all over the news because there’s fire and explosions.

Amazing work! And I knew about Lemmur, but not the native iOS client Lemmer. I just installed it and it’s working well. Great work @uuttff8

I saw this article on “hacker”news. For sure there are legitimate concerns about the Fediverse to be made. Maybe point 1 is one them - not being able to migrate data. But they don’t expand or make proposals on this, and instead go off on a tangent complaining about general online discourse and Twitter style microblogging in particular.

I know about S-curves, economies of scope and scale, JIT production, etc. I’ve read Stiglitz, Fukuyama, and the rest of it. I was also fed the same neoliberal propaganda about unions, and how great individual contracts are.

Ok, so let’s say we’re all in some distant future driving electric vehicles with no emissions.

That’s still not addressing mass deforestation, overfishing, pollution, and the myriad of other destructive practices that capitalism encourages.

And it’s not addressing why everyone need a car in the first place to rush to jobs, most of which are useless, destructive, or could be automated if we weren’t all required to do wage work in order to pay rent and survive.

Elon Musk is now the richest person in the world and what’s he doing to create actual change? Nothing.

When did I deny climate change?

Green capitalism isn’t going to stop climate change, and colonizing Mars isn’t any kind of solution as long as we’re still living under a system that expects and enforces unrestrained exploitation and consumption.

If we can’t do what’s required to keep this planet habitable, we don’t have much chance of surviving Mars.

The solution to climate change isn’t making electric luxury cars so some Silicon Valley techbros can drive them to Burning Man to take LSD and feel like they’re changing the world. The solution to climate change is for workers to build power in their workplaces, communities to organize, strike, abolish capitalism and build a system from the bottom up that works for the health and happiness of all people, animals, and the planet that we live on - not enslaving most of us so a select few billionaires can hoard obscene amounts of stolen wealth.

“The media” hasn’t done anything to Elon Musk except fawn over him and paint him as some kind of benevolent saviour. Just go look at his Twitter and you’ll see that he’s a right wing “Libertarian” who thinks it’s funny to actively exploit workers and destroy their attempts to unionize and organize against his exploitation. He makes clueless references to pop culture to try to seem cool. He supported the fascist Trump and was shouting about “FREEDOM” for people not to wear masks during a global pandemic.

Yeah, basically the same for me. Sometimes it works ok. Sometimes I get infinite loading.


I’m new to YaCy and not aware of what may or may not be working but I just saw this mentioned as a “frontend for searching YaCy without having to remember which node to use”.

Anyway, I’m gonna give it a try.

What’s not working? Is it a matter of needing more crawlers as @Danrobi@lemmy.ml mentioned, or something else?
