If you run a Linux distribution and decide that for whatever security reason to alter Grub configs in a major way, please explain that in the update process and ask to the user, before leaving them with unwanted and unuseful configs.

Again about those little tools. I switched from top to htop a long time ago, but I found out about exa as replacement for ls only yesterday. It is really nice. github.com/ogham/exa

GCompris, KDE's fun-packed educational collection of activities for kids between 2 and 10 years old, is 20 years old today! Celebrate by downloading new version 1.0. It comes with more great activities and a new system to set the levels.

Recompiling latest TeXmacs 1.99.14 for the Raspi 4 on RaspiOS. Embedded guile failed me, but manually built guile 1.8.8 without -Werror did the job. Had to manual do ldconfig for cache, but the rest worked rather smoothly.

TeXmacs itself runs very fast and is a great asset. So, if you think of buying a RaspberryPi 400 for Christmas, it will be a great machine for running TeXmacs.

#Minetest is 10 years old! It was first released publicly on the 10/October/2010. Here's to 10 years more.

You can download the first version from here, it's a Windows executable but works well in wine: packages.8dromeda.net/minetest

If you want the OnlyOffice integration in NextCloud, please read this document. IMHO the version release as 18 should have stayed a beta, because the "few important things" are bugs. (e.g. App does not check architecture and installs anyways, broken downloader). nextcloud.com/blog/how-to-inst

It started life as a cashew in KDE 4 and morphed into a hamburger in Plasma. Now it is gone. What was officially known as the "Desktop toolbox", the menu in the upper right (sometimes upper left) corner of your desktop has been removed.

Instead, long clicking (long press on touch-screens), or right clicking and choosing "Customize layout" brings up a control panel. Use it to add widgets, manage workspaces and configure the desktop. Learn about more changes here:

I can't say anything about RMS as a person, but IMHO his actions have held Emacs and GCC back in technical issues in the past and I hope that he retires from GNU as well.

... and that is why you should run your own cloud.

"Most of the cloud is controlled by just four corporations – Amazon, Microsoft and Google in the US, and China’s Alibaba. Goldman Sachslast year said these four hold 56 per cent of the world public cloud market..."

A friendly letter from independent app developers who don't want me to use their apps. That is the perfect spirit, guys. stopthemingmy.app/

Three conclusions to draw from denying access to software: (1) The urges users to use Free Software operating systems and applications on their computing devices. (2) Governments and especially the European Union should invest more resources in to gain independence from large enterprises and other states. (3) The FSFE urges companies to use as much Free Software as possible in their supply chains. fsfe.org/news/2019/news-201905

Most crude hack for a diceroller with the upcoming version of Talk for Nextcloud. But it works:

I am a Firefox user, but the cute name and the QT framework make me like the concept of the Otter browser very much. otter-browser.org/

With @fabsh and @methoddan here and all those other guys and the two doing anOutlaw themed podcast, it seems like someone turned time back ten years to Identi.ca and LO.
