If you prefer kdialog over "gtkdialog" on chrome-based browsers, you may need to uninstall xdg-portal-gtk, apparently

Posted 01-25-2022 at 04:29 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

It's likely there is a more proper way of doing it, not needing to uninstall, but I just lost my patience at this point.

Maybe still needs the non-GTK versions, a "neutral" one and a kde and a qt5 one, I can't really tell. I was about to uninstall them all, but occurred to me to try to uninstall just the gtk one, and voilá, I had kdialog on chrome-based-browsers again.

Why can't things be set by text files or environment variables with sane standards?...

More Podcasts

I have returned to mintCast podcast, holding up my #10 spot in the list of co-hosts by frequency and potentially moving up to as high as #8 if I hold on to the end of the year.

I am still doing my weekly news podcast, 10 minutes or less of news with zero advertising, Full Circle Weekly News

And, as just mentioned, we are readying our 30th episode of Distrohoppers' Digest.

Distrohoppers' Digest

Posted 01-24-2022 at 11:49 PM by zaivala

Next month's episode will be our #030th. We will likely be trying something new -- evaluating the same (sort of) distro from the eyes of a noobie-like desktop user AND from the eyes of a skilled tech. Our testbed baby will be Gecko Linux -- I will be doing STATIC Budgie, and Dale will be doing ROLLING with a different desktop.

We have grown to where, according to archive dot org, we are getting close to 1000 downloads per episode. We are not at all sure how complete this data is,...

since pyilper dont have an ARM version in anaconda3 for raspbian, lets try following

A long wait has come to end

Posted 01-18-2022 at 01:33 PM by carriunix

I know, Slackware 15.0 is not released yet, but I decided to write about the waiting in advance. Obviously, there will be more interesting things to write about once it is installed. The time of "about the waiting" is now. Slackware 14.2 was released in July 1st, 2016. Along six years a lot of things happened to me, to all community of users, and also to Mr. Volkerding.
