Happy (slightly belated for most) feast day of Saint Eligius / St Eloi! Known as the patron saint of Numismatists, he holds a special place in the hearts and prayers of coin collectors. We particularly remember him on the 1st of December (or the 2nd if you are a little behind, like me this week!). More info on him: https://coinofnote.com/saint-eligius/

I know we are all very busy just making ends meet and this makes us tired to the point of exhaustion. Sometimes the last thing we want to do is learn something new. I encourage everyone who is able to, to learn a #linux distro like #mint. The neat thing about Linux is that when you learn it, you learn what your computer is doing, why, how, and when.
Mastering your computer means that you are less likely to get taken advantage of by corporations. This is huge.
So what to do after #GivingTuesday2023 💸?
#SongOfTheDay for that: A lady, a guitar and:
Using #OpenCollective was something someone suggested a while back, and since I want to stay out of the corporate proprietary ecosystem as much as possible, I figured why not. Imagine my surprise a while back when I realized #inxi had actually gotten some donations there!
I don't know what the big donation was for, but I do know that some companies use inxi for end user issue debugging, at least one gaming company does. As do several big distros, like #Mint, #Manjaro, #Garuda etc
Haben die Menschen Angst, die künstliche Intelligenz könnte intelligenter sein als sie selbst? Dann sollten sie anfangen in Punkto natürlicher Intelligenz aufzurüsten.
Wenn die Neonazis Angst vor dem Bevölkerungsaustausch haben, könnten sie Recht behalten, aber völlig anders als sie glauben.
I had an old laptop with an AMD E2-7110 in it. It struggled with Win10, let alone running much for apps/video.
I haven't messed with Linux in 20 years. Install was easy peasy, no faffing around with finding drivers and such. I'm quite pleased.

Did You Know: These days, they don't let you run software on your computer. They make you run your software on a virtual computer that lives inside your computer instead!
But, when Ubuntu upgrades and tries to force you to use a Snap version of Firefox like that, you can just go to getfirefox . com and download a proper version that runs on your computer instead of running it on a virtual machine on your computer.
"sudo snap remove firefox" takes quite a while to run because Snap is bloated overly abstracted bullshit, but when it does finally finish you can also do "sudo apt remove firefox" and then make a shortcut in whatever menu system you use to the version you downloaded yourself.
Of course this won't prevent all the other packages on your system running on snap or let you remove snap from the machine entirely.
To fix that you can make a note to install Mint or Debian instead after the weekend when I have time.

I believe that was the main reason most people who bought the units failed to enjoy it and had to resell it at low cost or simply keep it in storage unit they throw them away.
Good for me since I bought all but one unit from the French web site LebonCoin at a fraction of the price of what they were sold by IKEA.
On this unit, I have 4 #tomato plants, 1 #parsley, one giant #mint and 2 #radishes. It's consuming about 1L per day as tomatoes starting to grow, and maybe have to give more water and nutrients to help producing more in the coming weeks.
These little guys are helping me more than my medication to calm down and relax from the daily stress and troubles from horrifying news these days.
In a few hours the bot will announce what I just released: #Mint support in the new release of the Firefly III data importer.
This should make it pretty easy to migrate to the personal finance app my mom is the most proud of: Firefly III
Toolbox "Naturwissenschaftlicher Unterricht digital" v. 2023
I was going to try a couple of different options to replace Mint and I started by installing YNAB. And now that i had to set that one up, i don't feel like doing that with another one lol.
And i know the best way to be in control of my data would be to do an excel sheet.. but i like an app because it's convenient and i can update my expenses on the go.
It relies on open-source NMT and data models released by projects such as Meta's #NoLanguageLeftBehind and supports languages often overlooked by others.

Ich mag mich irren, aber es geht doch gar nicht darum etwas zu retten, sondern einfach darum gparted auszuführen, um eine USB HD zu konfigurieren.
Allerdings kann da auch ein LiveSystem helfen. Völlig richtig.
Mir ging es darum zu sagen:"Mit #mint wäre das nicht passiert!". 🤣🤣🤣
If you use #Mint for your personal finance, you probably know by now that it's shutting down. I've switched to #PocketSmith (it's not free) and have "30 day free trials" to share if you'd like to check it out. (If you end up subscribing, I get 2 months added to my subscription.)
I'm finding it a little less intuitive than Mint and have had trouble syncing one of my banks, but otherwise I'm finding it a good replacement for Mint for what I need.
This is a great spreadsheet someone put together of #Intuit #Mint alternatives
Our household time budget did not include “find another personal finance solution and completely migrate to it in the first weeks of your newborn’s life”, but here we are thanks to #Intuit shutting down #Mint.
Out of everything I tried – Monarch, Lunch Money, Rocket Money, Copilot, Personal Capital (before it became Empower), and more – only #Quicken #Simplifi connects to all 18 of my accounts. It provides the features I used in Mint: transaction tracking and reports. Refund tracker is a bonus.
I may wait a bit and see if they manage to provide enough features for me to be happy, since I'm (personally) less concerned with budgeting than I am with tracking transactions, investments, assets, etc.

After researching and trying *many* different personal finance & budgeting apps, YNAB is the only one that made sense to my visual-designer brain and successfully relieved much day-to-day financial anxiety.
I’m now a big fan of YNAB (the service and the company) and longtime paid customer. I also ♥️ their training materials! https://www.ynab.com/got-five-minutes
Use my referral link, and I think we both get free something: https://ynab.com/referral/?ref=wuInJjFrppfP65Uu
I am ...pretty bummed that Mint is getting discontinued before Canada rolled out open banking. 😓 Signed up in 2012, it feels like the end of an era: https://www.theverge.com/2023/11/2/23943254/mint-intuit-shutting-down-credit-karma #mint #intuit #cdnpoli
Oh man. I've been using #Intuit #Mint _forever_. I hope my data transfers over.
The thing is, I need *something* that does expense/income tracking and reporting, imports bank and other transactions, basic budgeting, net worth tracking, etc.
So what is the modern alternative?
RIP to #Mint, a 15 year old financial app (web before phones) that I fuzzly remember as an early startup I was rooting for.
Oh, you liked our app did you? Used it for 10 years to manage your finances did you? Well FUCK YOU, and that's a message from Capitalism"

Z. B. möchte ich eine Messreihe von x-y-Werten schnell in ein Koordinatensystem plotten.
Ohne den ganzen Aufwand, den man bei einer Tabellenkalkulation braucht.
Freue mich über Tipps.
Nun möchte ich die Befele "STRG-C" + STRG-V" wieder belegen. Allerdings klappt das nicht da ich den Befehl dafür nicht habe.
Meine Frage nun : was ist der Consolen-Befehl für die beiden obigen Tastenkombinationen ???
(und nein, die Tastenkombination eintragen klappt nicht ) :-)
The rule is intended to replace the status quo for data sharing, which is giving your banking password to third parties who go and scrape that data on your behalf. This is a tactic that comparison sites and financial dashboards have used since 2006, when #Mint pioneered it:
A lot's happened since 2006. It's past time for American bank customers to have the right to access and share their data, so they can leave rotten banks and go to better ones.
In the end it drove me away from Ubuntu #Linux. It's absurd. 🤷
On Sunday I posted about the 2021 First Nations Australians $2 coin set. When writing it up, I noticed that the orientation of the handprint on the military service coin, and the colours of the flag did not seem to match the rest of the coin. I found out a little more why and updated the post: https://coinofnote.com/2021-first-nations-australians-2-coins/ (TL;DR: It's not an 'error' and doesn't make your coin more valuable) #Numismatics #CoinCollecting #Mint #MintError #Indigenous #FirstNations #Australia #TwoDollars
In this one, we have a web version of Photoshop available to everyone (well, everyone who pays for it), we have Linux #Mint Debian Edition 6, plus more details about the Cosmic desktop, more work on the open source NVK driver for Nvidia, and more!
If you want to add Mint's apps, there is a PPA for that too.
Thanks to the good folks at @omgubuntu for pointing that out.
Ubuntu Cinnamon can easily be styled to look just like Mint.
Ubuntu Cinnamon 23.04 (Lunar Lobster)
Ubuntu Cinnamon 23.10 (Mantic Minotaur) Daily Build
Ubuntu Cinnamon 20.04.5 LTS
I personally remove the snaps, add flatpak, and that's it. Once you've styled it, you wouldn't know the difference.
If you use linux mint and it bothers you that the default file manager icon does not match the rest of the app icons inherited from moka I've made colorized moka file-manager icons that inherit everything else from Mint-Y and its accent colors.
Been checking out the recently released Linux Mint LMDE 6 "Faye" BETA edition:
Well worth checking out.
So, I guess I finally should make the #introduction post -- no, really. Especially, today is the last day of my current vacation, so now or never.

Hat hier jemand ein #VPN von #Proton unter #Linux am Laufen? Sofern ich mal eine Verbindung bekomme, ist das halbwegs stabil aber ich bekomme nach Start der App für mehrere Minuten nicht mal einen Login, geschweige denn einen Connect.

In this one, we have #ChromeOS finally graduating to a "real" Linux distro status, we have #Mint giving details about the next release, and discussing their choice of #Ubuntu as a base, and we have #GNOME planning some changes to the Activities button (that I sort of like, but it's not perfect).
Let's take a look!
Cascatelli with fresh peas, pea and spring onion purée, and mint. I made this usually once a year when the fresh shelling peas come in, and it’s delightful. #dinner #cooking #pasta #peas #mint
so. i have successfully reinstalled #mint.
i booted it once. it worked fine
i edited the fstab to include my home drive
i installed my keymap
and now it is impossible to start my display manager at all. it just does nothing. i am command-line only
at what point do i just… i don't even know what the next step is here. like i already DID the reinstall. what else could i possibly do?????
hello tech support? i need some help with my #mint please i am so fucking lost. i broke it and i don’t even know WHAT broke
i did an upgrade and now xfce has new and improved windows. in the sense that the windows no longer have frames, and cannot be moved or resized or tabbed through… so i installed gnome and gnome just puts me in a “something went wrong” screen with the only possible option being to log out. so i installed fluxbox and fluxbox works and has windows, but any gnome or xfce related tools, such as a terminal, don’t have window decorations either, so that’s no improvement.
i have NO IDEA what is going on. i am back in xfce and if i try to go into the window manager settings nothing happens, it just doesn’t open.
so something is clearly missing or broken but i don’t know WHAT???
how do i even find out what is going wrong here
(please do not tell me to just go back to my system snapshot or to do any other things i did not ask about. i am asking how to find out what broke and how to fix it in my current install. thank you)
More on Mint. So, delightfully, when I booted up the VM today, Orca started on login, and after login too. So after you turn it on, it comes on again. That's very, very nice. Not only does that tell you when your computer is ready to go, it lets you set what DE you start with and such.
So, on the [Linux Mint homepage](https://linuxmint.com/), there's a downloads link. Whenever I press Enter on it, it expands, but when I arrow down, there's just the collapsed Project link. Even when I just press Enter on the Download link and press Tab, the thing just collapses and I'm put on the Project link. I remember finding a way around that, but a user hopeful about Linux and ready to try it will probably think "Wow if their website is like this, I don't wanna know what their distro is like."
