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 🔎 Primarily aimed at visually impaired users but also of use to theme creators and designers 🎨 See the GitHub project for details and an @ubuntu PPA - https://t.co/bHoHhfcrvJ https://t.co/CteWdloeug tweeted by @ubuntu_mate
Is there a UK equivalent to http://privacy.com? I love the idea of temporary credit cards specific to services.
Hello everyone !
📢 🔴 URGENT 🔴
An awesome software is dying, because its #developper has not time anymore to care of it.
It's an alternative of Adobe AfterEffect : Natron (https://natrongithub.github.io/)
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 !
@nolan in completely other news, big kiss for you for making it much easier to switch instances now :)

Well, now I have two accounts. So I'm likely to be talking about roleplaying stuff more as https://tabletop.social/@sil, 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 (tabletop.social 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 mastodon.social. I'm interested in another instance, tabletop.social, 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., http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=tabletop.social&view=local) and follow individuals; is that the way to do it? Bit confused.

But... this is all new-Doctor unsteadiness, which everyone goes through. So far I haven't seen anything to suggest Whittaker will be bad, which I like. And the line about the sonic screwdriver now having Sheffield steel in got a grin. I was worried about Walsh, but he seemed fine to me. And I was glad Ryan didn't get a "now I can ride the bike through the Power of Heart now me dead nan's with me" scene like some crap Hollywood film. So, tentative thumbs up so far, I think. 2/2

So... not bad, I thought. Which is a good start for a new Doctor, since they always take a while. Felt a bit like mid-season monster-of-the-week filler rather than a Big Intro, which turned me off a bit since Whittaker doesn't seem as cool as 12/11/10 yet. And the crane-top "we can honour who we've been while choosing who we will be next" speech seemed a bit blunted by Chibnall using it to have a go at critics; he's justified, but don't ruin big speeches with it. 1/2
It's healthy masculinity to admit to liking Toxic? It's about her second best song, behind Oops I Did It Again. Sadly, like Rihanna, I like her early stuff more than the later.
Today I discovered that people play RPGs online! By video! I had no idea such a thing even existed. Of course I seem to have discovered this just as some massive scandal has erupted around the roll20 site, so it's hard to get a sense of what's good and who I might play with. (Also, I'm a serious beginner, since the last time I played was in about 1990, which means I'd need a group who were OK with that, and don't play in US evenings. Which is hard to find.)
I told you, you can have an ice cream when we get there.
