Ah, it becomes a "paste" command if I've copied or cut anything. Weird stuff.

My thinkpad's touchpad is doing weird things with libinput. I am changing some conf files to test both fusuma and touch egg. And whenever I delete a part of the conf file, that becomes the thing my laptop will type. So my 3 finger right swipe becomes "previous" because I deleted that word from the conf, instead of the CHANGE_DESKTOP RIGHT it is programmed to do. Weird stuff. I think rebooting fixes it, but its a lot of rebooting just to config something.

I need to stop hopping between manjaro and Ubuntu as my base for my KDE desktop. I just can't choose. I like updating less frequently on Ubuntu, but it feels less quick and has older versions of KDE. I guess I could always go back to neon.

So glad to be back on Fosstodon, I missed this corner of the internet.

I've changed my backups process to have duplicati manage one local and one cloud backup. Then dejadup does another local one. Rsync/cronjobs for random directory syncing too. Finally following the 3 2 1 rule.

Monsanto ... No surprise they've lied.

How the “success story” of genetically modified cotton in Burkina Faso fell apart

Monsanto profited more than was agreed in the contract, and assumed none of the risk shouldered by cotton companies and farmers.

Rclone or duplicati for a cloud backup?

"The entitlement of these fuckers is just off the charts. They have zero right, none, to the tracking they’ve been getting away with. We, as a society, have implicitly accepted it because we never really noticed it."

About 80% of Linux users use Firefox, but 80% of Firefox users don't use Linux.

Found these Ubuntu CDs at my parents house. Used to install it on school computers all the time. I think it's Ubuntu 11.04 or 10.04LTS.

Top 3 favourite GNU/Linux distros go!

Boosts highly encouraged! There's a twist with this one ;)

PS: The twist has nothing to do with Linux or open source

Whether or not the folks in Portland being detained without warning are antifa, white nationalists, or innocent citizens, the folks abducting them are using unmarked vehicles, and are not identifiable from their uniform or related garb.
