Source? According to Wikipedia they're American.

It lists several subsidiary offices, including Russian, Armenian, Swedish, British, Belorussian, and Portuguese branches. It's still headquartered in the United States.

The site seems to be a bit of a hack job, you have to join their Discord and ask one of the administrators to delete your review manually.

Not sure how they're planning to compete with the price of the lower end Steam Decks with those specs...

Seconding vim as the universal Unix/Linux editor. It takes a while to become a real vim pro, but learning basic usage is very helpful. Escape to switch to normal mode (where letters trigger functions instead of just typing), i to switch to input mode, : in normal mode to enter commands, :wq to save and quit, :q! to exit without saving - that alone should be enough to cover a lot of basic use cases. If you ever want to learn more, there are plenty of tutorials online.

Nice to see ULWGL pick up steam so quickly, figuring out the right version of Proton to run outside Steam has always been kinda weird and fiddly. Name really sucks ass though.

Take a look at Haunted PS1, the games they published or that are in their compilations are usually close to that era of visuals.

For individual games you have stuff like, Anodyne 2, Cavern of Dreams, Zortch, Worlds, Lunistice, Hypnagogia, and many more. Like someone else said, there are plenty of indie games imitating or taking inspiration from the graphics of the late 90s and early 2000s.

The instructions on that page make it so that every time you run a system update, mullvad automatically updates as well. If you're happy doing the updating yourself, you can download the deb file from here: https://github.com/mullvad/mullvadvpn-app/releases

I don't know about Mac, but on Windows the Mullvad app doesn't auto update. If you want to do it Windows style you can look for deb files (which are like installers) or AppImages (which are like standalone executables).

Most pieces of software give terminal instructions for Linux because different people might use different package manager frontends, but literally every Linux user has a terminal. It might seem daunting at first, but giving users commands to run in their terminal is a lot more simple than trying to walk them through repo management through the GUI, or just telling them to figure it out themselves.

ble.sh, for making regular bash a lot more user friendly with a single source.

Why does this quiz have so many fuckin distributions? If a newbie is looking for a distro to install, why would you ever recommend anything more niche than Ubuntu/Mint, or Endeavour if they’re interested in bleeding edge? I answered the questions as though I was new to Linux and got a massive list of every Ubuntu and Fedora derivative, with Manjaro sprinkled in for good measure.

Tree Style Tabs forever, baby! Simple vertical tab bars can’t even hope to compete.

man is standard Unix manual pages, while info is a documentation format introduced/popularised by GNU. info pages usually have a lot more information (sometimes including tutorials, guided examples, links to different pages and sections, etc (depending on the project maintainer obviously)) but man pages are the standard and basically everything has one. If you run info [program] for something without a dedicated info page, it will show the man page instead.

@iusearchbtw@lemmy.sdf.org avatar

Eh, to be honest, manpages aren’t particularly good as either documentation or quick references (hence the popularity of tldr), and info is intended primarily for the sort of long-form, comprehensive documentation that would be awkward to fit in a manpage. Also, texinfo documents can easily be exported to HTML, so one format can be used for both online and offline docs. It’s an admirable effort, if nothing else.

“KDE Gear” is just the umbrella name for KDE programs: Dolphin is KDE Gear, Kdenlive is KDE Gear, etc. So, yes, it is being fixed directly in KDE code, and this is the announcement for the release of a bunch of these programs at the same time.

Forty years of GNU and the free software movement ( www.fsf.org )

On September 27, the Free Software Foundation (FSF) celebrates the 40th anniversary of the GNU operating system and the launch of the free software movement. Free software advocates, tinkerers, and hackers all over the world will celebrate this event, which was a turning point in the history of computing. Forty years later, GNU...

Nope, because Hurd is created by the GNU project. Linux is entirely independent.

Steam Discovery/New Releases Queue! I’ve found a tonne of cool games, both old and new and popular and niche, just by flicking through the queues when I wanted something new to play.

Might be a bit too heavyweight for your tablet, but both GNOME and KDE have tablet/touch modes which activate automatically if they detect touch input but no mouse. If auto detect doesn’t work you can turn it on manually in Settings -> Workspace Behaviour -> General Behaviour -> Touch Mode in KDE. Not sure about GNOME.

Twitter accuses Meta of hiring former staff in cease-and-desist letter ( www.businessinsider.com )

There’s just something fucking hilarious about laying off employees, mocking them, and being sued for improperly firing them – and then whining that your competitor hired them and that they have access to Twitter information still....
