Gotta admin the Arch Linux wiki is an impressive piece of work since long.

Okay, you asked, we deliver ;-) I tried OS/2 and BSD, but did stick with Linux (Using Debian and Arch currently).

"No. That's it. The cool name, that is. We worked very hard on creating a name that would appeal to the
majority of people, and it certainly paid off: thousands of people are using linux just to be able to say "OS/2?
Hah. I've got Linux. What a cool name". 386BSD made the mistake of putting a lot of numbers and weird
abbreviations into the name, and is scaring away a lot of people just because it sounds too technical." -- Linus Torvalds

I find it really fun to browse the Debian repository and its source code with their dedicated websites for doing so ( https://packages.debian.org/ and https://sources.debian.org/ ), to find all the obscure utilities, and silly code comments.

I like it too. And Debian has its own screenshots website, https://screenshots.debian.net/ how neat is that ?

Luckily the 9 to 5 mentality has already changed a bit after the Covid-19 pandemic :-)

lemmyreader ,

That's cool.

Change SELinux configuration into warning only, reboot and see if that helps ? It that works then you know it's a SELinux thing to solve.

lemmyreader ,

Are you using 2FA ? With some services (Not Discord but others) I found out that when 2FA is enabled I will not have to suffer endless amount of CAPTCHAs and what not.

lemmyreader OP ,

Sorry, dunno. I am just a fan of David Revoy and loves how he promotes open source on the Fediverse.

lemmyreader OP ,

Cool 😀

Don't know about Google but you can set up your own F-Droid repository, and you can also prepare to try to get it to ship via the main F-Droid repository. And if you have releases on Github you can maybe ask to have it also included with IzzyDroid F-Droid repo https://android.izzysoft.de/intro.php

With Signal you only need a SIM card to register the account via the Signal app on the phone. You can receive the SMS for registering on another phone. After registering you can simply use Signal over WiFi. If this is too difficult, XMPP with a good OMEMO client for E2EE is an option. Easiest to install and start with is perhaps DeltaChat, E2EE chat via email : https://delta.chat/en/ You only need to learn what to do if the E2EE is not working right away. They have a FAQ and hints in the app.

Thanks for mentioning the Steinberger guitars. I knew they exist but forgot the name https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steinberger

You could configure sudo without password only for the wg-quick command. Not a beautiful solution and also not super easy to configure with sudo but it's an option. Much easier solution is to install doas or opendoas and leave sudo as it is. Let's assume your desktop user is named variants and in group variants, then putting the following in /etc/doas.conf is expected to work :

permit nopass :variants cmd wg-quick

If your user is not yet in a group, and you add a new group, remember that making such a change usually requires logging out and logging in again because the group changes become visible. Then test with doas wg-quick up wg0

VPN and Tor use on the lemmy verse, is it banned ?

Hi, I have noticed for three days now not being able to post comments from my Lemmy.world account while connected via Tor (I was left waiting for a spinning wheel )! I thought at first It might be a problem with LW servers but after three days, I concluded they are banning Tor and VPN users from posting, I Have found a user...

lemmyreader ,

I am posting on lemmy.ml and piefed.social via Tor browser without issues.

lemmyreader , (edited )

Each time you start your Tor browser after having closed it, it could be using a different Tor circuit, isn't it ? Maybe the Lemmy instances you're using only blocked a few IP addresses that are Tor based. You can check what you are using each time, clicking on the circuit icon next to the lock icon in the Address bar.

lemmyreader ,

Oh.That's too bad :(

lemmyreader ,

Hi, welcome. If you're on feddit.de which is Lemmy based, you can use Lemmy apps : https://lemmyapps.netlify.app/

lemmyreader ,

Neat.

And the fonts in terminal and music player look similar ? What font is it ?

lemmyreader ,

Saw those spam postings. From three different Mastodon servers, one instance was pretty small. Glad to hear active measures have been taken though I hope it was not simply blocking instances.

Question : Is spam reporting on Lemmy actually best or is it better to report directly on those Mastodon instances ?

lemmyreader ,

I actually like the name Quitter much better. How about that Elon ?

Apparently my love language is installing @linux on the laptops of people I really care about.

lemmyreader ,

These days installing Linux and upgrading it is easier than it was years ago. Installing Linux can be a good deed indeed :)

  • You want your project to become popular, get stars and discussions ? : Github

  • You want control for your small hobby project ? : Self host Gitea or Forgejo

  • You don't mind paying and supporting an open source developer ? : Sourcehut

lemmyreader ,

AntennaPod is available on F-Droid (F-Droid ftw!). For Podcaster I cannot find a website or source code repository. Where is more information ?

lemmyreader ,

After all the fuzz about Mullvad having used Gmail for email and now self-hosting, have you checked what EFF uses for email ? So long privacy !

lemmyreader ,

There isn’t a a lot of options for public facing organizations. It kind of sucks but it is true.

Really ?

Also email isn’t private or secure

Agreed.

and it will never be private or secure unless you use gpg everywhere with everyone.
Even with gpg you still have a public identity.

One problem with GnuPG is that it will take a lot of effort to make normies use it.

lemmyreader ,

EFF and Fastmail for email seems like a perfect match. And Fastmail has servers in the USA which EFF might appreciate :)

lemmyreader OP ,

It looks a bit like eyeOS (once open source but turned into closed source). Maybe it can be used between a few users to share files and share apps.

lemmyreader ,

Tested Stalwart, the all in one option with both JMAP and IMAP. Looks fairlygood, works fine with IMAP and SMTP, but making it work with JMAP clients took me some time. This page helped for the F-Droid client lrr.rs. With Cypth it was a no go. SnappyMail webmail software is not mentioned on the JMAP clients page at all but it is with development 1/2 done with JMAP implementation. In a few months time Stalwart is expected to have a web interface for admins. Looking forward to testing again when that is available.
