Do you enjoy following someone's own posts, but they boost a lot of stuff you don't care about?

Did you know you can just mute their boosts without muting their posts?

1. Go to their profile page

2. Click on the menu button (the three dots in a column)

3. Click on "Hide boosts from..."

(Note: this only works with Mastodon accounts.)

Anyone good with ? My PCIE for the graphics card is by default set to "on" instead of "auto" and not sure how to change the setting.

What do you use as your daily driver?

Spent a good hour trying to get Civ 6 on my Manjaro instance working. Probably took longer since I sort-of did a few fixes instead of one all the way.

What ended up working was:
1. gpasswd -a $USER bumblebee
2. create steam_appid.txt with text "289070" in /home/$USER/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Sid Meier's Civilization VI
3. primusrun "/home/james/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Sid Meier's Civilization VI/Civ6Sub"

steam-native had a lot of errors; may try again.

@switchingsocial Thanks. I was wondering about something that keeps tract of steps, weight, etc.

Well, for fun, I did a
powertop --auto-tune

and my fans instantly turned off... Maybe I don't have to mess with bumblebee. Estimated 6 hours of battery life.... Crossing my fingers!!

The setup continues.

Went through the guidance on the wiki, and lm-sensors did not detect a fan, so went with #2 option of NBFC. CPU fan was detected, but not the GPU. Also, was unable to change the CPU fan.

Going to try replacing bumblebee with Optimus Manager to see if I can disable the GPU on my day to day for better battery life and less fan noise.

436 package updates, hopefully one of them fixes my fan issue.

Update on KDE, set up was super easy, and Nvidia proprietary drivers with bumblebee was all configured out of the box.

Only issue now is to figure out why my fans spin up and don't shut down...
