I’m about to try elementary OS again as a workstation. Right now I was pretty happy with fedora but I’ve got some glitches that are just annoying… like those gnome software center ‘ bugs where you need to kill the process to be able to update or download anything… or those “night shift” (redish screen) that sometimes work and sometimes don’t. And those bugs aren’t “gnome” since those works nicely on archlinux with gnome. Elementary OS 6 look nice ^^’
Google removes yet another FOSS application from the Google Play store because it links to its website which links to its Patreon https://github.com/language-transfer/lt-app/pull/44

I finally was able to contact my dentist. They use a weird system where there is only one way to contact them; A phone line that ring 4 time, available 10h-12h, and if no one answer it just hang up automatically. No mail or other way to contact them. And no one ever answer.
So I set up an Asterisk-FreePBX server with my number at voip ms and made the system ring them none stop and connect me via my cellphone upon success
Took them ~1.5 hours to respond... The women was pissed ^^' (372 calls)
Anyone have a good recommendation for services to help the less computer-savvy with hard drives their loved ones leave behind?
Was visiting my hometown and paid a call on a former music teacher and mentor. She mentioned that she is looking for help in going through the contents of computers left behind by a late family member. Geography puts me in a poor position to help with this, but I'd like to vet and recommend a professional data dump/cataloguing service.
so far mastodon work better with it. The UI is not mobile but usable. You just have to go "landscape" for some settings.
On manjaro kde, firefox is not installed by default like on the phosh spin. After adding the mobile patch it still can't access the gpu for hardware acceleration so firefox is super slow compared to the one on phosh. I'm missing something ^^'
