Finally got around to writing the second half of the LAS talk @alatiera and I gave in November: https://blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/03/25/there-is-no-linux-platform-2/
tl;dr: We can't have a "Linux" platform, but GNOME, KDE, etc. can be platforms.
We could do that by going around the distributions, by having distributions work together, or both, but the status quo is *not* working and we badly need vertical integration.
elementary has proven it's possible, we just need everyone else to learn that lesson :)
Also, it still looks good without headerbar at all.
🦄 Geary 3.36.0 has been released! 🍃🍃
A new composer, undo everywhere, and finally no more accidentally archiving emails when you press the A key. 😅
Suprise! Shortwave 1.0.0 is available! 🎉
@jsparber is working on a new user avatar widget with automatic fallback. WIP but already looks dope.
The new HdyAvatar. Custom font size based on the avatar size. So that the initials can be read even on small sizes. Keep in mind that the widget is still work in progress.
The font size isn't set via css, but the font is. If somebody has an elegant idea how to set the font size based on the widget size with pure CSS let me know.
Make sure to report *any* issue here:
If everything goes fine, I can publish the first stable release very soon. 😍
Flathub build is already in process, should be available soon!
If you haven't installed it yet, you can grab it from here:
@barz :/ afaik it was a different thing, but I don't remember.
@barz it's either dkms or akmod, I never remember which one.
Thankfully I don't have any modules like that, as no nvidia here and no VirtualBox either because Boxes.
Interesting. I didn't think it was possible to have gamepad hot plugging inside Flatpak sandbox without a portal, but apparently a simple `GFileMonitor` for `/dev/input` works.
I'm not even talking about the fact there's Software Updater and there's Updates tab in gnome-software and they are completely different.
