Hey all! I'm moving my account to a new one! It will be the same old stuff, but with a new username. @gortbrown is the new handle!
So, my laptop never usually plays nice with Linux. The wifi card didn't work without special some modules, and the function keys and keyboard backlight never worked. But I just installed Ubuntu Cinnamon Remix, and everything just... Worked! This is the first time in almost 2 years that I've had a laptop that just works with Linux without having to do some post-installation work!
I've been messing around with the PinePhone's camera, and for a $150 phone, the pictures actually aren't that bad! I wouldn't use it to replace my Pixel's camera, but I wouldn't be disappointed if I used it for normal pics and such! And shout out to @martijnbraam for his awesome work on Megapixels!
Happy (very early) #screenshotsunday!
I just installed Fedora 34 on my laptop and I'm loving Gnome 40!
Did you know that you can also waste bandwith and watch PineTalk on video platforms?
