Is anyone else having problems with #Firefox crashing on #Ubuntu 23.04 with #Wayland (it works with #XOrg) when you try to drag tabs to another monitor. There's something about it at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414353#answer-1584597 where the solution is "use X11", but I'd like to find an issue I can subscribe to so I can follow a fix for it in wayland.
Bye Bye Ubuntu, Hello Manjaro. How Did We Get Here?
So, yeah, back to "perfect" #Fedora
gnome-shell was eating RAM like a monster on Ubuntu.
Gnome Software takes care of all updates in Fedora, no need to have an extra tool, or go to the Terminal to find other updates.
Flatpak apps are better on desktop, even if Snap in 23.04 are very fast. Don't believe people who used it 3 years ago.
I left #Ubuntu, but I installed the great looking Yaru GTK & Gnome Shell theme on Fedora. And I very much liked that Prussian green accent colour.

@thelinuxEXP Hello Mr.Nick.
I saw your video, and it was great. I'm programmer and for my job, I used a lot of linux systems in my life. The Debian is a good OS for servers, but for desktop it's not a great choice; #ubuntu, #deepin and #Kbuntu could be a good choice for desktop computers, because Ubuntu, Deepin and Kubuntu can support #NVIDA graphics card and you can use snap and steam without any problems.
The only complain I have with the new #ubuntu is that snap is slow as hell.
Removed snap firefox and moved to apt, and the speed increased by a LOT

am i doing something wrong...?

@gamingonlinux that's why I stick with vanilla #ubuntu LTS. It's boring, but good enough to be my daily driver.
#foss people out there, what #linux distro do you use and why? Please note, this is not a distro bashing conversation. Rather, it's curiosity about other opinions and learning.
I've used #ubuntu #kubuntu or #kdeneon as daily driver for the past 14 years. Whilst I like neon, it doesn't play very nicely with Nvidia. Yes, I'm fully aware you can get it to work, but it's a pain in the ass and regularly breaks shortly after getting things somewhat working. At least that's my experience.
About ten years ago, I had a brief flirtation with #opensuse and the relationship ended badly. I still have a little trauma from that. I'm pretty sure it was all my fault, but never could figure out what I did wrong.
I've been very unimpressed with the direction that Canonical is taking and wanted to try something new. I tried an Arch based distro last autumn and really found the community too caustic to new people joining. Not to mention, I saw a lot fascist views inserted into comments and replies to other users. That was dropped quickly.
After New Year's, I decided to get crazy and installed #fedora. 😅 I know, I know, not really a big leap into the unknown, but I've never tried it before. I've been using it for almost 6 months now and it's ok. I don't like it and I don't dislike it. My biggest issue is that Xorg seems broken (and I cannot figure out why) and I can only use Wayland to login. Wayland is just not quite there for my workflow.
Oh, I should also mention. I'm one of those #kdeplasma nut cases.
Now that #Ubuntu has exhausted the alphabet, I find myself always typing the previous cycle's codenames by accident. Is the current one Jaunty or Jammy? Can never remember. 🤯
@azcoigreach #Ubuntu seems to think #PipeWire is the way to go and from what I can see it solves some #BluetoothProblems
Erster Test von #LinuxMint (war mir auf den ersten Blick sympathischer als #Ubuntu) über VirtualBox: Auch virtuell läuft es recht flott. #Nextcloud Client hat auf Anhieb funktioniert. PDFs, Bild, EML(Mail)-Dateien lassen sich anzeigen. Damit sind schon mal die rudimentären Dinge erfüllt.
En lo personal, soy usuario final (ni dev, ni trabajador, ni nada, solo user final de sobreescritorio) de Linux desde 1999 y desde que descubri #Ubuntu mis problemas en Linux de verdad se redujeron al minimo...
A mi no me interesa que distro usar, si la A, B o C... sino que las apps deben correr y hacer su trabajo (justamente lo que muchas veces escuche de varios lideres como RMS)
En este sentido, creo que seria muy bueno que las distros se concentraran en hacer su trabajo y todas trabajaran por un sistema de paquetes al estilo de APPIMAGE (que tambien debe mejorarse en aspectos de seguridad)... en donde:
- sea universal
- permita reducir el trabajo al dev/coder (solo un paquete y no decenas de paquetes para cada distro)
- que NO ocupe recursos mientras no se ejecute en el pc (en el caso de SNAP y creo que Flatpak estan ejecutandose en segundo plano)
- que permita al usuario el lugar fisico a instalar (yo tengo las AppImage en una particion exclusiva, junto a otras cosillas)
Y eso. Por lo demas Linux x Siempre
btw brotip when ur installing #ubuntu server don't connect it to the network or else it takes fukin FOREVER wasting ur time on updates, and cancelling doesnt work.
this time the installation completed like immediately wtf
everything is shit...
The #ubuntu guided install will make a boot partition and LVM partition. But the storage configurator won't let you do the same thing yourself, it only lets you add whole disks to the LVM, it won't let you add an LVM partition of a disk that already has partitions added. 🤦♂️
so I wasnt satisfied with the #lvm experience on #ubuntu; the only gui i could find was #kde partition manager, but it didnt even give me any advanced options like the physical arrangement or stripe settings.
tried #fedora but the installer was slow and it crashed. so now i'm trying #opensuse, and I decided to try #raid 0 instead of lvm. I've done this before so maybe it'll work again...

Hey my dearest followers. I need your help. I finished my last project today. As soon as I am getting home, I am downloading #linux and installing it before I am even greeting my mom or wife. I am so over windows and will never return back to it again. I am currently looking at #PopOs #Manjaro #Ubuntu. Shill yours to me and give me your best recommendations!
A new thing noticed recently on #Ubuntu 23.04 + #Linux 6.3.5 is ffmpeg core dumping every 15m as Shinobi is rotating a security cam video.
I'm sure this one is harmless, but I like to imagine the vulnerabilities of ffmpeg as a very imperfect interpreter of extremely complex input.
Could an attacker show up outside, carrying a weird sign board which would bork ffmpeg and allow RCE input?
What if the attacker had a special outfit and dance?

#RISCV Was a bit worried that I couldn't use the USB ports on the VF2, and it didn't detect the NVMe drive either. Fortunately after booting back from #Ubuntu 23.04 to Debian both work fine. That's quite a limitation ...

Hey @system76 - did I see somewhere that an #Ubuntu installation can be “upgraded” to @pop_os_official? Asking because I’m making plans for how to configure a laptop that ships with Ubuntu pre-installed.
Time for the weekly #Linux and #OpenSource news recap!
This week, we have #Ubuntu working on an immutable system using Snaps, Red Hat dropping the LibreOffice RPMs to use the Flatpak instead (also impacts Fedora), and a lot of cool @gnome projects being worked on!
I posted on Facebook about some of my tech issues and setting up my new fileserver and I got a lot of confusion from my followers as to what I was talking about. Can you tell I rarely post tech stuff to there?

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. 👋

An immutable #ubuntu desktop built on snaps may be the right tool to showcase the abilities of #snap as a packaging format. CLI tools can be snapped right away and autoupdate, could make of this a semi rolling distro. Can't wait to see what the team at #Canonical is preparing.

My employer got me a new laptop. It's got Ubuntu Pro with Gnome desktop and it's enrolled in Landscape. It also has an extra Nvidia gpu for which they only configured Nouveau.
Coming from 8 years on Manjaro and the Cinnamon desktop I thought it would be an interesting experience.
I'm only a couple of hours in, but right now I am just hoping it will get better as and when I get things tweaked enough.
But for sure, I won't be using any #Ubuntu for my own devices! Yuck... #linux

@andypiper my relationship with #Ubuntu has been far less about commitment, and more about utility. The moment I discovered that loading the calculator app took 5+ seconds, I started looking elsewhere.

Some may be wondering what's the story behind this commit : https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=168467061327976&w=2 in #freetype
Here it is: earlier this month #Ubuntu released a security update for libfreetype: https://ubuntu.com/security/notices/USN-6062-1,
mentioning a #CVE:
Looking closer the patch included in this security update is https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/freetype/freetype/-/commit/e6fda039ad638866b7a6a5d046f03278ba1b7611
I was wondering if this is worth an #OpenBSD errata. What we found is that the patch has no effect on the generated code. It only shuts up the undefined behavior sanitizer.
So if the integer overflow here
matters, it's still not fixed (in Ubuntu and everywhere else)...
The accidentally committed version was from a tree where I worked on this.
This week, in our #Linux and #OpenSource News video, we have more work on HDR support, #Ubuntu improving their PPA system, and a security flaw in #KeePass, the open source password manager, plus #cinnamon being adopted by more distros, and a new XFCE spin.
Let’s dive in!
Securely editing configuration files while preserving the invoking user environment:
That's all. The changes will not be immediately effective; logout, and login again to activate.
When using sudoedit instead of sudo, all your customizations set in your editor (in this case vim) are honored and the file is edited as the user itself, not as root.

#Batocera has a pretty slick frontend, but it's really rough around the edges, and when something doesn't work it's hard to figure out what to do about it because it's so weird.

I'm thinking of trying out running #OpenBSD on a server instead of #Ubuntu, because Derek Sivers recommended it for its security (particularly around the more controlled packaging).
I have basically zero experience with BSD, but a ton with #linux (redhat, ubuntu, arch, centos, amazon linux, etc.).
Any advice on making the transition? Is this a good move or unnecessary or bad?
Anyone good with #nvidia on #ubuntu?
