Ayatana Indicators - IDO Rendering fixed with vanilla GTK-3+
#Ayatana #Indicators has just received a pull request on Github by Robert Tari that will make indicators finally available to all Linux systems running vanilla Gtk. Up to now, the full functionality scope (rendering of custom widgets via GMenu) was only available in Ubuntu. This is an a hell of a milestone. Sending out my biggest gratitude to Robert, before I have even tested his PR. light+love from sunweaver
I've been using Riot.im for a few weeks, both the web and the mobile client, and...
...it's a pretty damn solid experience! Finally a well-designed, secure, free as in freedom IM that doesn't suck.

Fedi - I could use some help.
Recently I have been playing a bit of a digital archeologist and exploring websites of late 90s/early 2000s.
I have grown up in Poland, and we had a few internet focused magazines, that would include copies of websites on a CD. I bet other countries had similar publications.
This is where I need help. What magazines from your country included offline versions of websites? English preferred, but I am happy to explore any language. Boosts greatly appreciated!
Scratch an Itch: Make Apps for Linux
The most FOSS projects start because someone, somewhere, sees a problem (the itch) and they start programming their way to a solution (the scratch). So if you ever had an idea for an application you personally need you may find others have a similar desire and you should scratch that itch and start to make a Linux app.

I continued working on #Horde (a groupware framework) in #Debian over the past two days. I am in the process of moving the theming to /etc/horde/, rather than /usr/share/horde/. This will make it much easier to adapt the default theme to some custom theme. One big showstopper, however, for Horde in Debian is porting the unit tests over to #PHPunit 8.x. We'll see...
First day on Mastodon after reading a great post by @kev!
Any tips on who to follow are very welcome! 🙏
I was asked: What is it like to be in the @opensuse community?
Sometimes exciting, sometimes frustrating. Probably like any other community. 😃 What motivates me are my fellow geekos 🦎 and our values: be open, friendly, work transparently, respect others and their work. With these values we can create the best #Linux distribution in the universe.🤗😇
I'm looking for some motivated computer programmers to learn and collaborate with.
I am the sole developer at my job, and the (mostly) sole developer for all of my side projects; and to be frank, I've been lonely.
My goals are to further study mathematics and computer programming fundamentals in order to become a true professional and not just some "guy who makes webapps". I want to contribute meaningfully to my field and the world.
Feel free to boost, dm, and share links.
