My sons college is forcing students to use proprietary Adobe products like Illustrator and Photoshop and this really pisses me off. Any school should offer their students the possibility to use free and open source software and with #Inkscape, #GIMP, #Krita and #Blender there are excellent alternatives available.
What are some notable examples of successfully monetizing desktop #GPL free software?
Another reason to in the very least have @fdroidorg installed on your phone. https://twitter.com/albertvaka/status/1107924633750253568
Yes, #Tusky 5.2 is crashing when you have polls in your notifications.
1. We are aware of the issue, a fix for the crash is already in the Tusky nightly. You can use it until Tusky 6 is released. Tusky 6 beta will start in about a week.
2. The polls feature is not even a in a Mastodon release candidate yet, maybe wait before running it in production?
3. No Mastodon does not coordinate such breaking changes with app devs.
"Why should I trust 'apt install' to install what's intended?"
"apt doesn't just roam to internet and download random software. It checks for software in the repositories configured. The repositories that is configured out of the box are curated and very unlikely to contain malicious code.
Don't worry, apt isn't npm."
No matter which social network you're on, following a diverse group of people helps you taking a peek at the other side of your personal filter bubble.
You don't have to agree with everything and everyone, but please, at least try to listen to people and their opinions.
It will help you appreciate your own life, and may just make you a little wiser.
If you're an avid open-source user who would love to help advance a project, there's a lot you can contribute whether you can program or not:
Provide constructive feedback, file bug reports, improve the documentation or help out maintaining the web & social media presence. Spread the word and recommend the projects you love to others (btw, I run Arch 😂)
Say "thank you" and tell developers to "keep up the great work". That form of contribution means a lot more than you could possibly imagine.
New package update from MELPA...
lsp-ui (20190318.729) --- UI modules for lsp-mode
It's not for everyone, but I'm really enjoying it—and I love that their custom CSS is flexible enough to let me do so.
Anyone else both use Proton Mail and crazy enough to want this? I'm trying to decide if I should throw it up on Git.
In /r/emacs... :
My Emacs is fast after implementing KISS to the Modeline!
After time using smart-mode-line and come to doom-modeline. I begin to study modeline, I had clean doom-modeline a way that I want (like removing features I don't want)
It really spends the time to maintain, so I look back the default modeline. It is really very good after understanding what purpose of modelin…
It sounds like a lot of good improvements are hitting mycroft. Will hopefully get to try the update out soon now that I have unboxed my Mark I.
