- Has to run in –classic mode.
- Does not detect audio or video.
- Skype *.deb installed without issue.
- I will question the usefulness of snaps until something useful comes out for it.
- A bunch of electron apps which already work everywhere Chromium would don’t really qualify.
- TDLib is the right way to go about things.
- Don’t like the official app? Try one of the many full-featured alternatives.
- Anything is better than electron flavoured lockin.
- The unofficial telegrams could be anything from a difference in branding to something designed from the ground up to fill whatever functionality niche you or your company have.
- It’s open sauce, it’s got a decent enough API to allow for better functionality with other applications.
- This is just a good idea.
- Heck! If someone makes one of these which allows for multiple instances and has better sound quality than Wire…
- In my day we said proud as punch, just saying.
- Dynamic detection for HiDPI displays.
- Marco now supports DRI3 and XPresent, if available.
- MATE Terminal now supports background images because that was a real showstopper.
- Alright, give me a ppa and I will take the Pepsi challenge.
- See if it can handle 5 SCREENS OF FURRY.
- I’m going to wait for the unofficial 16.04 PPA to be updated as well.
- New filters for exporting Writer documents to ePub and importing QuarkXPress files have also been added
- OOXML interoperability has been improved
- OpenPGP keys can be used to sign ODF documents on all desktop operating systems, with experimental support for OpenPGP-based encryption.
- The upcoming release of LibreOffice Viewer for Android will be able to create new documents, will offer a tab-based toolbar with formatting options, and will let users add pictures either from the camera or from a file stored locally or in the cloud.
- They do kind of hint at not deploying this in the enterprise.
- There’s also the “Notebook bar”, aka LibreOffice’s Ribbon for those MS Office users out there who actually like that monstrosity.
Another bullet to shoot it with
- Didn’t even read the article because if you are using Flash in 2018 you deserve what you get, period.
- What? There is one site you simply must use because they only support Flash?
- Well, ask yourself this.
- Why do you support a site that clearly does not care about your security?
- “But muh anime waifu!”
- Your anime waifu is going to give you more than an STD if you keep using flash.
- Some people simply refuse to accept this.
- Heck, most people don’t understand what swap is.
- If you use swap in the spirit intended, though – as a method of increasing equality of reclamation – you’ll find that it’s a useful tool instead of a hindrance.
- Disabling swap does not prevent disk I/O from becoming a problem under memory contention
- The kernel wants swap.
- HiFour reportedly devastated.
- I Want To Believe.jpg
- The world’s first and only Linux-capable, multi-core, RISC-V processor.
- 28nm… woof.
- Development boards start at $999 / evil when they do handstands.
- Sadly this is a overpriced piece of kit that fails to fill an actual need.
- So, sorry not sorry.
- LKRG? Really?
- That sounds like an organization that might come disappear you during the night.
- A loadable kernel module that will perform runtime integrity checking of the Linux kernel.
- Its purpose is to detect exploitation attempts for known and unknown security vulnerabilities against the Linux kernel and attempt to block attacks.
- So, does it detect PSP and IME?
- You can expect a “Pro” ver$ion.
- Current LKRG version adds a 6.5% penalty.
Slice of Pi
- I’m really starting to pay attention to critters like this.
- If Charter ever pulls a Summer and gives me that 20^ I will build a LGC 24/7 box.
- For the most part that sorted it.
- Firefox still has some issues but it’s usable.
