FFS, GNOME! Just wasted a day of editing video because the built-in screen recorder records screencasts at such a low quality that I ended up with keyframe artefacts / ghosting in my captures.

Bloody hell…

And is there any way to set the quality? Is there ever!

[Edit] Use OBS. (Thanks everyone in the replies.)

(Don’t use GNOME’s built-in screen recorder if you’re posting HD+ videos.)

Exciting talk alert! Marta Lewandoska from Red Hat at #DevConf_CZ is presenting a game-changing solution to replace GRUB: nmbl (No More Boot Loader).

Join on 06/15, 09:30-10:05(CEST), E112 to learn more about using the Linux kernel as its own bootloader. Say goodbye to complexity and security holes!

One of the things I really miss after moving to #Linux from macos is the power that #Mailmate gave me. #Thunderbird does get close but lacks a bunch of things. #Betterbird has been working well for my needs. One feature I miss is the distortion mode from Mailmate (freron.com/screenshots/) as I tend to share my screen a bit. Does anyone know of any plugin/setting that would help? Tried looking for loremipsum, obfuscate, etc., but to no avail.

I wrote a Dart package for speech-dispatcher, enabling TTS on Linux. It also works with Flutter for Linux. The package supports most features of speech-dispatcher, with additional support for less commonly used functionality like history coming soon. It still needs broader testing, so feel free to open any issues you encounter. My hope is that one of the TTS packages for Flutter will start using it to add Linux support, as most, if not all, currently don't support Linux.

You can find the package on GitHub at github.com/the-byte-bender/dar… and on pub.dev at pub.dev/packages/dart_speechd.

Proxmox vs FreeBSD: Which Virtualization Host Performs Better?

Since migrating many servers from Proxmox to FreeBSD, we have consistently felt that the VMs are more responsive. It's time to conduct some concrete tests.

Heute ist #Sehbehindertentag

Anlässlich dessen starte ich einen Aufruf an die internationale #Linux und #FOSS Entwicklungsgemeinde

Sehr gerne #boost :BoostOK:

Egal, ob ihr an der Entwicklung einer Linux- oder #BSD-Distribution beteiligt seid oder ob ihr #OpenSource-Programme programmiert:
Bitte geht auf blinde, sehbehinderte, motorisch eingeschränkte #Menschen zu und bindet sie mit in die Entwicklung ein.
Holt euch Feedback ein, ob eure #Software vollumfänglich zB mit einem #Screenreader nutzbar ist, oder welche Herausforderungen dabei bestehen.

Am Beispiel dieses Threads von @WestphalDenn , der hier beschreibt, welche Beeinträchtigungen er für seinen Anwendungsfall Audio-Bearbeitung erlebt (und warum er zurück zu Windows wechselt, was ja nicht im Sinne von FOSS-Enthusiast*innen sein kann, oder?)

Kürzlich den #NUC, der am TV als Medienabspieler dient, von #Linux auf #Windows umgezogen.

Vorteile:
* Deutlich besserer Sound (natürlichere Sprachwiedergabe und der sprichwörtliche vorhang ist weg)
* Medienserver und Player auf dem selben Gerät führt nicht mehr zu 80 % Auslastung des Systems
* Barrierefreiheit ist um ein Vielfaches besser. Selbst bei diesem Anwendungsgebiet

Nachteile:
* Fragwürdiger Datenschutz
* Kein Open-Source-betriebssystem

didn't know this before, and didn't have to because i haven't installed windows in the past 10 years. but for those who need to do this, this workaround should be known:

Thankfully, there remains another way to install Windows 11 without a Microsoft account. When you’re at the log-in screen, you can hit Shift + F10 and type OOBE/BYPASSNRO, which will let you create a local account instead if you do not have an internet connection (so disconnect the internet for this).

a@a.com is redundant but Shift + F10 OOBE/BYPASSNRO comes to the rescue.


Bisher bezog es sich auf die Nutzung #blind. Miene Partnerin erlebte Ähnliches, wenn auch nicht so drastisch. Trotz aller Anpassungsmöglichkeiten von #Linux und #Android gab es in diesem halben Jahr keine einstellung, die voll zufriedengestellt hätte. Benachrichtigungen kommen sporadisch, wenn sie überhaupt kommen und am #Warntag hatten wir beide unsere Warnung auf Android ganze zwei Minuten nachdem sämtliche iPhones pünktlich gewarnt wurden.

If you are looking for a tool to let you benchmark your PipeWire pipelines, test things during development or realitime performance graphs then maybe coppwr is the PipeWire tool you been looking for, check it out on Flathub:

How fast can you type? Find out with my new app, Keypunch!

I've worked on this for the last couple of months, and it's finally out. Keypunch lets you practice your typing skills with automatically generated pseudo-text in your language of choice. Alternatively, you can supply it with your own text, such as song lyrics, Wikipedia articles, and quotes. Get ready to accelerate your typing speed!

Get it on Flathub: flathub.org/apps/dev.bragefugl…

Shout out to Text Pieces! I needed to URL-encode a big ugly string (creating a template form from URL parameters, yay!) and yep, sure enough, it made it stupidly easy.

The next time you need to encode, transform, or convert some text on Linux, reach for this pretty little offline app instead of pasting your data into some random website. 👍

I was sad to find a surprising lack of visual scripting apps for Linux. Apple's Shortcuts app is very powerful and can be incredibly useful. It's not like we don't have the technical ability to make something similar.

So I started working on one myself :blobfoxfloofcofe:

Here is my new GNU/Linux distribution guide about Debian KDE 12, the right GNU/Linux distribution for professional digital painting in 2024! Also about three major problems with GNU/Linux distros that will drive away all professional artists, IMO, and how I got kicked out of the Fedora KDE ecosystem with F40, which imposed Plasma6 and Wayland. I hope it helps other artists here!

Why should it take @sovtechfund to fund accessibility work on the Linux distribution of a multi-billion-dollar corporation like IBM? Why the fuck isn’t IBM paying for it?

#accessibility #linux #foss #corporations #BigTech


I love that a multi-billion-dollar corporation like RedHat/IBM can ship an operating system with a broken screen reader in 2024 (it’s not just them, it’s true for basically every major Linux distribution today) and, when you point it out, the response is “it’s no one’s fault… it’s all free labour… it’s FOSS, man”. And then: oh, and this charity is paying for one person to work on accessibility support to be implemented now… Anyone else see how fucked up that is?

Linux blind users, listen to this and let me know what you guess this actually is, and most importantly, what you think! I'm just gauging interest as this is still in its early infancy, and I was wondering if it was worth continuing. As you can infer, I'm already far enough to have a working yet incomplete prototype!

#linux #accessibility #blind


But no seriously what the fuck is @gregkh trying to achieve here? Before, I could use a CVE count as an argument to spend time upgrading #Linux: "there have been found 5 vulnerabilities in the version we use, we should upgrade to the latest". These days, CVEs are useless for that purpose, everyone knows that pretty much every single one of the thousands of "CVEs" affecting the kernel version we're on is bogus so they aren't useful for that purpose any more so we stay on old kernels for longer


The #CVE count of the #Linux #kernel is not looking good these days compared to any other #OS is it. Maybe time to switch to #FreeBSD or some other system which doesn't claim to find hundreds of significant vulnerabilities every day


Great news from @JanGrulich today. PipeWire camera patches are merged in Chromium and should be part of Chromium 127 (unless testing turns up something). This means both major browsers should have @pipewirep camera support soon. chromium-review.googlesource.c… #linux #fedora #chrome

My dream job would be helping making a decent *Desktop* #OperatingSystem #Linux or preferably #BSD based. The whole concept of trying to emulate the behaviour of a #desktop is cringe. The way we interact with files and filesystems is horrible . The so called cloud stuff is only better in some ways and at the same time much worse in others. Unflexible workflows needs to be replaced so badly.
At first I'd like to support the process of designing the OS but later I would be SVP.


One reason people find #Linux insufficient is also because the inconsistencies when it comes to closing applications or windows.

At least in Gnome this works so unreliably that it's very annoying.
