Tech drama. GNU/Linux & BSD user.

Hi! I have been real busy recently with my new studies. I am studying Programme in Specialist Nursing – Prehospital Nursing for 50% at the same time I am working 85%. To top that up I got a family with two wildering kids of the ages 5 and 2. So this is time consuming.

Hopefully you understand why I have not got the time to write anything for a long time.

As far as I know there is not many cloud providers offering opensuse, so I pulled up my own image to vultr. Since they allow me to use practically any ISO of my choosing.

I just signed up for reddit, once again.

As you may have seen before I deleted my account since I do not like what reddit has become.

But for reasons I have considered, since I removed myself from the service, I feel the need to read/write on some subreddits.

#reddit

On OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Void Linux, Manjaro, Debian, Fedora and more..

I read an article found here.

This article is written back in 2015, a wee bit old as pointed out by kungtotte.

kungtotte – @iah buyer beware if you want to use Windows ever and use the same editor. Vim8 works a lot better on that platform and it supports async now too. It's fairly trivial to turn an init.vim into a vimrc or vice versa though, so I guess it's moot.

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?

Trying out the fediverse interaction. To follow this blog on your favorite fediverse platform just search for @dup@dup.space

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.
