#Linux Weekly Roundup for June 4th, 2023: Immutable #Ubuntu Desktop, #LinuxMint gets touchpad gestures, two new Linux-powered laptops, #GNOME 44.2, new #LibreOffice features, Ubuntu 18.04 EOL, #KaliLinux adopts #PipeWire, #Armbian rebased on #Debian 12, and more https://9to5linux.com/9to5linux-weekly-roundup-june-4th-2023
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.
the day that fractional display scaling becomes functional in #GNOME/#GTK is the day world peace arrives

Starting points for restoring drag'n'drop functionality in archivers #gnome #xorg
#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. 👋

#gnome peoples, any tips for getting things like fonts crisper? I have subpixel rendering, etc already on. 3440x1440 rez, set to 100%.
Vamos a contribuir al #ViernesDeEscritorio con el sistema que está en fase de pruebas, #openSUSE #MicroOS con #GNOME (dentro de poco #Aeon).
A saber cómo acabará esto.

Fractional Scaling Coming to #GNOME
Es #viernesdeescritorio y no sólo de #GNOME vive el linuxero. Llevo unos días probando a fondo #KDE #Plasma en #endeavouros, una distro basada en #arch que ya conocía bien pero que nunca había instalado con este #desktop en concreto. Me está funcionando tan bien que me estoy planteando convertir esto en mi entorno de producción. Va de maravilla.

#GNOME Software Fix Reduces Background CPU Usage :gnomewhite:
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.
My #achievements at age 15:
- Published an app on #Flathub, and more are to follow
- #GNOME Foundation Member
- Project member of two other apps, Upscaler and Cavalier
- Lots of #contributions to lots of other apps
- I know #Python and #Bash really well, am getting good at #Rust
- Got to know many cool #programmers and #OpenSource enthusiasts!
I'm quite proud of myself, to be honest!

It seems that porting an extension for an older version of #GNOME shell to GNOME 43 is harder than I had expected.
Oh well, worth a try!

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. 🤔

#97 GNOME Latam 2023
Be part of Linux App Summit 2024! We are already looking for the location of our next event. What about near you? Send in your proposal and let's get things rolling!
Very happy to see this issue closed via commit and very much looking forward to seeing the new fully-light light mode in GNOME :)
I graduate in August, which means I'm looking for a job! I have almost 5 years of experience with #GNOME/#Linux desktop development and over 2 years part-time professional experience with full-stack development (#dotnet, #angular, #ionic). Plus I've dipped my toes in a ton of other things over the years.
Looking for something remote or in the #neworleans area. If you've got anything let me know! DMs open, boosts appreciated.

How To Enable Natural Mouse or Touchpad Scroll
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"
Startup: "Make things that don't scale"

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
