Tech drama. GNU/Linux/BSD user.

I have for a long time thinking of ditching Twitter for good. One thing I still use is lists. I haven't gotten around to making it work on Mastodon. Anyone got a tip?

So how do I ditch it completely?

You really made me love you. I remember way back when I tried FreeBSD for the first time. It was a new and fresh breeze of air hitting me. And now years later I deployed openbsd on my vultr vps. It works wonderfully. And yes it just works. Reading a lot of nice man pages and the initial configuration is just awesome.

After reading https://www.romanzolotarev.com how could I not?

Deploying the instance on vultr, referral link as I'm writing this.

Is done. If you are able to find another platform for yerks please don't tell me.

I noticed ITSFOSS wrote about being able to right click on images to get a resize option in Nautilus. This is a really handy tool instead of opening Gimp or any other image tool.

But this is not the optimal way to resize images in KDE. Since KDE is not using Nautilus or the GTK+, or the GIMP toolkit. The default file manager is Dolphin. There once was a tool called KIM (KDE Image Menu) but it seems to not have been updated in 14 years. So after some digging around I found something called ReImage, the latest release is 2.3. With this addon you can Manipulate images and its metadata directly in Dolphin.

You can find additional service menu addons here.

I found this yesterday. He couldn't be more right.

Why do Linux users seem to be so obsessed with their distro of choice being “lightweight”? I simply don’t get > it, and quite frankly, I find the whole > notion of “Lightweight Linux” laborious.

Formating disks containing antergos..

Installing manjaro KDE went nice the second time, first time around the calamares installer made an exception and aborted. To what I believe occurred by setting the boot flag on /boot and the root flag on /.

And then after another try, it went smooth. I wonder why it broke down with settings those flags.

beeing an active GNU/Linux user for twenty years. I can hardly remember the first time I installed my first Linux distribution, it was Redhat before Redhat turned RHEL. The year was 1998.

I do not understand why people keeps posting for how long they been using GNU/Linux. Who cares? Of course I care. It says something about me. Or does it?

I have always used a distribution that I thought I needed for my work flow.

With this being said I can not deny I've been a distro hopper. Been using fedora, arch, antergos, manjaro and recently the great opensuse for the last couple of years. Right now I run Antergos with Gnome and I must say I got something quite against Gnome always have since I do not know when. It feels so large and sluggish.

During my recent vacation I decided to make a complete make over on my main machine. Doing a reinstall. The iso prepared is Manjaro KDE.
