Though I donated to Wikipedia on my own, @danrabbit's nudge on Mastodon and Twitter, https://mastodon.social/@danrabbit/104603769892620535 made me go further 😀
Since Mullvad doesn't have a server in my country anymore, I'm thinking of setting up a Wireguard install on my Jitsi Meet Digital Ocean droplet that is in the same city.
After experiencing deep packet inspection (intercepting the SNI header and sending a redirect from HTTPS to HTTP so that is possible to block) by another "Big Brother" ISP (that I'm not using) while accessing a blocked website with DoH enabled in Firefox, I decided to go ahead with this.
For a "flagship" released less than a year ago, OnePlus 7T Pro, OnePlus has never pushed updates/security updates on time - August is a week away and my phone is still stuck on the May security patch 😒 They seem to have all the time in the world to push bloatware specific to India like the "OnePlus cable club" etc. but not for timely updates. @corbin's update rating of 4/10 is well deserved 😠
I summarized all these issues and the corresponding fixes in a blog post - https://www.lguruprasad.in/blog/2020/07/19/fixing-the-rough-edges-of-my-plasma-setup/🙂
An extremely hard-fought and well-deserved 34th La Liga title! 🏆 🎉 🎊 It was an unbelievable team effort! #HalaMadrid
And I solved a related problem where Plasma was resetting/interfering with the scaling done by my custom #xrandr script, by disabling the kscreen2 service. Thanks to https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/hoajbo/trouble_making_my_xrandr_scale_settings_permanent/
I also managed to fix the default ugly SDDM greeter screen on #Arch by changing it to the breeze greeter that ships with #Plasma. The sddm-kcm module failed to switch the greeter theme due to some reason and I configured the theme in /etc/sddm.conf as documented in https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SDDM#Current_theme
Thanks to the people on the internet, I managed to solve a few issues with my Plasma desktop.
