@BrodieOnLinux I saw in your most recent video that you might try out a different DE, such as Cosmic, before you do, might I recommend #gnome with Forge extension, it's a proper #tilingwm extension for it

Just don't forget to edit dconf to have all the 4+ workspace keybinding,
& there's an extension, Toggle workspace span, it let's you toggle the change in workspaces for either only the primary monitor or the whole monitors, not AwesomeWM, but it's the closest that wayland has to offer imo


There needs to be a summer of code for #Plasma. That is, the actual desktop shell, UI and widgets.

It's both #KDE's call to fame, but also their detriment, because it's not easy maintaining a desktop you can fully customise using UI tooling, cus it leads to a fair deal of technical debt.

Perhaps they should create a new shell project, a barebones rewrite of the actual shell that seeks to modernise and improve the overall experience... like #GNOME did.

I await GNOME extension developers ire.


I do most of my #screenshots with the default tool from @gnome. Sometimes, however, when I like to highlight elements, I prefer to use #Shutter. 🔗 https://shutter-project.org

Today, I accidentally came across this older article from @itsfoss and learned, you can actually also use @GIMP for taking screenshots. (file > create > screenshot)

It''s pretty cool if editing is necessary since it opens the image in #Gimp.

Watched the last episode of TechOverTea by @BrodieOnLinux , with Georges Stavracas, a great lead dev in Gnome, Wayland, you name it. The amount of shiite and harassment he, and many other FOSS people have to suffer is simply staggering. And no, it's not 'them', it is from the 'free and opensource community'. It's by us. Think about that and let it sink in. We have to do better for them and act, no coffee talk. As a true community.

Heads up for @gnome extension developers: you'll have a bit of extra work on your hands for the upcoming Fedora 39 release, as GNOME 45 is streamlining the way extensions are developed, moving to ESM modules.

If you haven't already, check this guide on how to port your work to the most recent version of the flagship desktop environment for Fedora Workstation!

Want a nice _and_ reliable #calendar application for #GNOME and #Linux desktops (& #mobile!) in general, based on the @EvolutionGnome data server?

Know some #C #programming and looking for a well-scoped challenge to get your feet wet and put those skills to use in #opensource?

#GNOMECalendar could really use your help to write unit tests, so that we can use #TestDrivenDevelopment #TDD #CI for #refactoring all timezones-related code and make it reliable. Now is the time!

I've never created extensions for #Gnome, but as a webdeveloper I think the change is a right step. #JavaScript uses ESmodules, it's a standard since many years, so now maybe more JS programmers can start creating extensions for Gnome. I just hope it won't be too difficult to rewrite some of the old useful Gnome extensions.

• #EndlessOS is the secret cabal
• Importance of meeting people behind projects

…and a whole lot more! It was a blast, and I’m sure there’ll be shorter clips in the coming days if the two-hour runtime is daunting. 😅

Yes please thank you.

The 'Activities' button always translated really awkwardly to any of the languages I use. Hint: it's because 'Activities' is a _terribad_ descriptor of what the button actually does.

New Ubuntu Store promotes snap only, GNOME 45 alpha and France privacy breaches
In this week’s #Linux and #OpenSource podcast, we have the new #Ubuntu App Store that will demote deb packages, we have the alpha of #GNOME 45, and #Fedora proposing to add telemetry in a future release.


Ever since doing the initial completion support in #phosh 's osk-stub I wanted to add a generic "unix pipe" like completer. phosh-osk-stub would feed the program preedit on stdin and read the completions from the program's stdout.

That is there now and with that and some more changes I can use @zachdecook 's #swipeGuess to do swipe like typing. To be clear: all the hard work is done by swipeGuess, phosh-osk-stub just piggy backs on it:
