How hard is to flash a Linux on ? Just type 10 commands in console and your @postmarketOS based tablet is ready to use! Stuff you use everyday works out-of-box... and you can use your desktop @gnome apps. What a feeling!

Enjoy!

Just configured this beatiful router and even for slightly advanced setup I didn't have to touch ssh! Great work !

I drafted this #FacialRecognition ban for #NewHaven with the help of @eff and we're building momentum to get it passed. After the Fight For The Future action at Yale tomorrow, we will make sure the Elm City joins cities around the U.S. in passing this important #privacy safeguard. 1/2

#Sweden will likely pass a new law tomorrow which allows anyone from law enforcement to install spyware on computers, phones and smart devices a mere personal suspicion that a crime may have been or be committed. No warrant required.

Europeans may want to think hard about their options for full disk encryption, boot chain integrity and so on. Most #linux distributions have good options.

After adding proximity sensor-support to #iio-sensor-proxy (gitlab.freedesktop.org/hadess/) and adding runtime-pm support for the chip used in the #librem5 (and it's devkit) (lore.kernel.org/linux-iio/cove) we can now wire it up to #phosh to fade the screen and prevent keyboard input:

freedesktop-sdk 19.08.07 has been released with Mesa 19.3 - which means that flatpaked apps can use OpenGL out-of-box with upstream unmodified runtime on the Librem 5 now! \o/

There are five browser cores:
- webkit
- chromium
- gecko
- servo
- youtube-dl, which ended up implementing a full-fledged browser in python to keep successfully downloading videos

Over the past few years I've noticed myself stopping to do custom tweaks on my own system, and instead working to fix the underlying issue for everyone.

I finally wrote my thoughts about this down in a more coherent form blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2020/

If you are using libhandy, use the libhandy-0-0 branch instead of master — e.g. in your Flatpak manifests.

We will soon bump the API version on master to prepare libhandy 1.0, so if you get libhandy from that branch, your app *will* stop building.
