this, but also Ubuntu. And all this stuff actually exists for Ubuntu already too; could ship it by default? In Ubuntu MATE maybe?

Just saying this again, you're missing an amazing opportunity. Just make these 3 simple changes to Windows 10:
* A "mac finder layout" option for Windows Explorer
* Quick Look
* A Mac Preview clone

Just these 3 things would enable mac users to switch in DROVES

Anybody know what I have to do to have GSettings launch a particular app when a GSettings key changes? Apparently when the screen-magnifier-enabled key changes, gsettings launches your configured desktop magnifier. What I don't know is: how does gsettings know what your configured desktop magnifier _is_? how does a magnifier app register itself to be the one that's invoked when that gsettings key changes?

Friend of Ubuntu MATE @sil has created a new application called Magnus; a simple screen magnifier 馃攷 Primarily aimed at visually impaired users but also of use to theme creators and designers 馃帹 See the GitHub project for details and an @ubuntu PPA - tweeted by @ubuntu_mate

Is there a UK equivalent to I love the idea of temporary credit cards specific to services.

Hello everyone !

An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.

It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (

Please, can Mastodon community search for a C++ dev, which want to maintain it ? or search for a company which work with free software ? It's very important.

Boost very appreciated

Thanks in advance for your contribution !

"Privacy Could Be The Next Big Thing" by @sil at was an *excellent* talk and echoes all of our beliefs around privacy in elementary OS. Give it a listen at 2:05:30

Gtk, stop trying to be clever and resizing my window after I've told you a size to make it. There seems to be no way of saying "make a window this size and don't alter it, regardless of how close it is to the edge of the screen or if I move a widget outside that size". Grrr.

@nolan in completely other news, big kiss for you for making it much easier to switch instances now :)

Stuff that's fun can't be scaled.
Stuff made for scale can't be fun.

So if you want to keep the fun, don't get big. If you want to get big, don't try to be fun.

Living life to the maximum, thanks to everybody who sent their congrats to me for being entered into the #ib100

Massively annoyed at apps that go "beep" so I know _something_ is alerting me, but I have no idea what it is or what the alert was for. Use the damn system notification system!

Well, now I have two accounts. So I'm likely to be talking about roleplaying stuff more as, I imagine, unless I get really annoyed with this two-accounts thing and abandon that.

I am not, it seems, the first person to ask this. Or even the ten-thousandth person to ask it, looking at the github issues list. And it looks like there isn't really a good solution. Some instances show their local timeline on their /about page ( doesn't; I don't know whether that's admin choice or not); you can't follow a whole timeline from another instance (many bugs requesting this have been closed). The answer is: have two accounts. I am sad about this answer, but OK, fine.

Mastodon help required. I've got an account here on I'm interested in another instance,, which is about RPGs. What's the best way to get a sense of what's going on there, find a place in that community, etc? I can create a second account there, but doesn't Mastodon's nature mean I don't have to? I can browse their timeline (e.g., and follow individuals; is that the way to do it? Bit confused.
