If you got the M1/2 check out Asahi Linux

There’s a ton of game launchers, for instance this one just came out the other day and allegedly launches your games from Steam/Heroic/Bottles/etc. Not sure if it’s what you need but it seems weird there wouldn’t be an alternative to Playnite: https://flathub.org/apps/details/hu.kramo.Cartridges

Screensharing looks like something to wait on though. I’ve heard of people getting it to work but seems finicky

Edit: Looks like Playnite has distant goals of supporting Linux. Could be a race between these two apps for you to see which one gets working first

She was cute af in an computer science class and I knew if I waited to decide if I liked her, someone else would grab her first

She thought I was weird and gay but I pulled it off

5 years later we’re still together

Good, launder all the proprietary BS into public domain

This lawsuit is not about protecting artists like the other ones, it’s instead that SD used 12 million Getty images in their training model without paying Getty. It’s a much stronger case with much smaller repercussions for AI.

Honestly, a red herring article.

Tl;dr new EU law adds requirement to software distributors (ie. package managers) to verify your age if the app allows users to contact eachother

This community is so impressionable. Casually seeing a post like this every other week really makes me dislike cars

As someone who uses Github copilot and Stable Diffusion to do my job:


Please stop posting this garbage

My bad, it was Muon. No idea why I wrote Gecko

I’ve been using Brave since it was based on Gecko Muon, and all it’s worth is ad-blocking by default. If you know how to install uBlock Origin, Brave won’t offer you any advantages.

I’ve been up and down all the common ones from AUR to Pacstall to Homebrew, and honestly Flatpak and AUR stand head and shoulders above the rest. There might be some more obscure ones out there but I’d doubt their catalog at this point if I haven’t heard of them

Love these tips. To add on:


  • Don’t use your bed for anything but sleeping
  • Wash your bedsheets at least once every 5 days
  • Do not have any RGB lights visible
  • If the sun is up or there’s light outside, close your curtains

Sleep time:

  • Make sure to shower before bed
  • Make sure to wash your hair at least every 3 days
  • Make sure to brush your teeth before bed
  • Do not use your phone in bed. At all. Zero.
  • From the moment you’ve reached consciousness until the time you get out of bed in the morning should be <15 seconds

Once you get these nailed down, start training yourself with white noise. Any time you feel like you can fall asleep quickly, turn the whitenoise on. It trains your body like magic. Build up whitenoise habits over 2-3 months into more and more uncomfortable nights until you fall asleep with whitenoise every day. Keep this up for 6+ months. At this point, you will be able to turn whitenoise on and fall asleep in 30-60 seconds guaranteed, regardless of how sick/uncomfortable you are, and you can throw out half the things mentioned above (although you’ll probably want to keep them)

Reading books is a requirement for not falling into the addiction of instant dopamine hits modern technology provides

Given this comment was written by a bot, I think it’ll make information noise a significantly larger problem

Once I got into good habits (going back to school + going to the climbing gym), I quickly ran out of free time, but life is good. That said there’s still a few hours of downtime each week.

Working on 2009scape or packaging Linux apps on Flathub. Procrastinating usually just leads to a few games of chess though, since coding at my job 10+ hours a day only leaves time to work on community projects when work is slow.

At least public transportation is still faster than anything else in my city. Made the mistake of taking a taxi last week, literally driving on an empty road getting passed by the transit system got me frustrated 😭

It’s a guilty pleasure knowing everyone in a car feels that way on the daily

Looks like Western propaganda has been effective!

snap/ folder in the home directory is so disrespectful. I absolutely despise these apps that think they’re “too good” to follow proper xdg standard

The sandboxing issue is actually an important one that is being figured out at the xdg-protocol level. It affects Snaps, Flatpak, and any future goal of being able to run user-space apps in an environment more like Android or iOS, where it prompts a permission asking to access certain files/folders/cameras/etc on your device.

(If you don’t like that idea, don’t worry I’m sure you’re not alone and there will always be distros that follow the current status quo of “give everything”, but it’s a cool feature to have)

They broadcast all their notifications with priority set to 0, which overrides Do Not Disturb and custom notification filter settings.

Put less kindly, the developers are arrogant fucks. This reason alone is enough for me to package apps on Flathub.org.

(Play Runescape? Check out the 2009 emulation available as a Flatpak!)

It’s true, if something is closed source there’s no way to verify it’s secure, and if it’s not secure, it’s not private.

I would have switched to Vivaldi years ago if the whole thing was open source, but there’s no way in good consciousness I can support a closed source browser

You know all the laws of France, and know you haven’t broken them? Damn, I’ll call you instead of a lawyer next time

People were recommending SimpleX as an alternative messenger that’s encrypted-by-default, but falls back to SMS when the other person doesn’t have it

If people didn’t like it they would downvote it

Noo I wish I went to a tournament though! Even if you can do sub60 you can compete in most. I’ve done tournaments for other activities though, I highly recommend you give it a shot

“Things developed for X11 aren’t working on Wayland” is different than “New things seem to be better on Wayland”

Red Alert and Battle for Middle-Earth both have amazing community run servers nowdays

Welp yep that’s a solid source all right. Unbelievable

Source on NYT saying Feds censor the press?

Yet you defend and simp for the US.

Pleaseee find me cases where I simped for the US. If you can’t find any, I will start to reply with a link this comment on all your 0 effort posts. It’s frankly exhausting to research your points for you, then refute them every time they’re wrong.

What are you glad you did before you died?
"debated more NATO shills/tankies on Lemmy" probably won't be on that list

Snap actually sucks. This isn’t even a meme.
Upgraded Ubuntu to 22.04, where Firefox is Snap by default. Wasn't going to fight it, especially since Canonical has made 3 blog posts talking about how much faster they made Firefox on Snap. Since then, I've had subtle but annoying issues. * Can't Google things that have a colon after the first word- i.e. `error: file not found` doesn't work * I get *notifications* for pending updates * Other apps like Gnome's Software take a minute+ to load on my beefy computer This isn't even a meme. Snap is trash. I wanted to be neutral and not join the "hate train" but seriously. Snap is that bad.

Anyone else enjoying the higher gas prices?
Less people can afford to drive is a long term catalyst for making sustainable cities. A surprise, but a welcome one! (Yes, buses and subways use gas, but not as much as 12 individual cars going to the same location)
