Desktop is designed to make most use of 1366x768 resolution of my laptop.
There are 2 panels:
=> Top panel: grey, contains user's full name, time and system tray. User's name is replaced with Window action buttons (close, maximise, minimise) as well as global menu (files, edit, view, about etc) to save space
=> bottom panel: transparent, application menu, running and pinned app icons.
Both panels are pushed off screen when an app needs that space or goes full screen.

Inside the strange new world of being a deepfake actor
Hi everyone. I'm Allen.
I'm a professor in digital humanities, a recovering Classicist (where I nerd-ed out in ancient Greek literature), and a Linux hobbyist I suppose.
I'm particularly interested in the intersections of FOSS, privacy, edtech, and k-12 and higher ed.
I do a mix of teaching and work in data science, web development, literature, history, and culture. Egypt in the morning; R in the afternoon. I also tinker with retrotech and play saxophone from time to time.
The team is confident that cross-signing and QR verif is ready for the Big Release, and that e2e can be turned on by default in Matrix #fosdem 🤔
For you guys using nextcloud, I created a python script to fetch talk messages and send them via a gotify server, so you don't have to rely on google push notifications. It's by no means Production Ready, it still has a long TODO list. Maybe someone of you would like to contribute.
Whoever thought autoplay enabled by default was a good idea needs to be fired: https://www.xda-developers.com/google-play-store-autooplaying-videos/
Turkish Garbage Collectors Created Library Made Up of Discarded Books
Garbage collectors in the Turkish capital city of Ankara teamed up to create something very unique. They started saving all of the books they found in the trash in order to create a giant library of found books.
