Anyone remembers how to get this input method in #Gnome in @fedora ? I have it on my laptop but can not find it in another laptop.

Looking forward tomorrow 3 days hackfest organized by @tbernard

The main topic is GNOME mobile, but I expect there will be lots of collateral topics such as camera, hardware enablement, adaptive apps, UX, platform APIs, interoperability, and coordination.

We'll have people from @gnome @purism #systemd @mntmn @postmarketOS @FlatpakApps #Flathub #Phosh #freedesktop

I will be moderating and support where I can. Hopefully get some work done too.

Does #fedora have any laptop touchpad gestures I haven't found?

Using the main #gnome build.

I would rather like the ability to use a few gestures for efficiency.

#GNOME 45 to Redesign Display Options and Fractional Scaling Tweaks :gnomewhite:

I have a strong interest in seeing this project grow

If it were to support drag-and-drop groups a la GNOME applications grid, you could have the one good feature of #GNOME but in any desktop environment you want, and whichever panel or layout you like

This right here is exactly what #Linux desktop needs. Not asinine subversion of user choices with forced convoluted phone UI on desktop computers.

Person behind this, if I can throw you some donation $ hit me up

@popey Good old times back in 2004! I was still at #MandrakeSoft (#Mandriva) in #Paris. Mandriva had #KDE as default and #GNOME only as alternative, but still have often seen these window decorations, especially on conferences ... My last kernel compilations were only before my time at Mandrakesoft as sysadmin 1997-2000 where I had my first contact with Linux and free software (#SUSE 5.1) Printing is all-userspace, lots of poor-student-desperate-to-print created drivers for cheapo printers ...

After a bit of work to install all the extras I need, here it is. I'm trying the #Ubuntu way, with the dock/panel on the side. I usually add Dash to Panel. Ubuntu really pays attention to many details to simplify the user experience out of the box. But, please, add minimize on click! I also added a few #extensions Bye Fedora, see you. 👋

Just used Helvum from Flathub to watch a show on my laptop through my wife’s and my Bluetooth buds simultaneously, and it worked flawlessly! Someone should make a GNOME extension for choosing multiple outputs, or something.

As nice as it was to be able to do what I wanted, it was definitely intimidating at a glance. But it was as simple as connecting both headphones over Bluetooth, then dragging the app to the headphones in Helvum.

Once a payment system gets added to flathub for flatpaks,

The next cool and useful thing they can add is a cloud save/sync option.

I'd totally pay a few bucks a month to have files, game saves, highscores etc. automatically saved onto an account, so I can easily access them on different devices. 🤔

This is Rebel, my first gnome, named for the company I got the yarn from, Rebel Woolworks (RIP). The gnome turned out… ok. I would do certain things differently next time (stuff with more poly beads and less fluff; attach the arms lower down). The gnome is a gift for my neighbor though. I hope she likes Rebel! #knitting #fiberarts #handmade @knitting @fiberarts #gnome

Periodic reminder of how great a (hidden) feature the Linux (or maybe just Gnome) compose key is.

You assign a key on the keyboard to be your compose key, and you can type all kinds of characters and symbols in an intuitive way:

[ Cmp o / ]: ø
[ Cmp a e ]: æ
[ Cmp c , ]: ç
[ Cmp ? ? ]: ¿
[ Cmp ^ 0 ]: ⁰
[ Cmp x x ]: ×
[ Cmp - > ]: →
[ Cmp - - - ]: —

I've assigned Right Ctrl to be my compose key. I hardly ever use it anyway. 😊

AWS: "Make things that scale"

GNOME "Make things that last"

It's 25 years old, sure there are some cruft but contributing to / working with #GNOME is very refreshing in that sense compared to industry standards.

An update on Flash Cards! I got everything mostly working, you can now add an emoji as the deck's icon and go through a deck's cards making it actually kinda useful. :D

Once I figure out how to save everything to disk I'm unstoppable!!!

#GNOME #GTK #libadwaita

A Libadwaita application called "Flash Cards", the first page is an welcome page showing the app's name and how to start using it, after clicking on a button labeled "Create Deck" the user goes to another page with an emoji icon selector and a text entry for the deck's icon and name respectively, after that the user goes to the decks list page and clicks on the newly created deck, the user goes to another page that displays each card's front and back content.
