A tool on Linux to scan for inboxes on other mailservers?
  • Very smart. Learned something.

    Many many company mains are standard, which is interesting as they will get tons of spam.

    But makes sense that this is not a good way, that the tools for scanning for available addresses are blocked and that there are even honeypots.

  • The DesQ Project (a Wayland Qt Desktop with own apps)

    Found this project a while ago, couldnt find it again.

    A unique looking Wayland desktop, independent from others.

    !

    1

    CuboCore - PaperDE (a Wayland Desktop using Wayfire, Qt & Pipewire)

    cubocore.cc CuboCore - PaperDE

    Consistent look across all the apps and can run in lower system with minimum dependencies. All the apps are based on QT toolkit and Desktop Independent.

    Load a Distrobox in the background to speed up usage (Fedora Kinoite)

    This is very much a "Windows thing" to do but I would like to preload a Distrobox on system start.

    The benefit is that distrobox enter BOXNAME or launching a binary or app from distrobox-export is way faster.

    On Fedora Kinoite (Atomic KDE) with Podman, I use this:

    cat ~/.config/autostart/preload-BOXNAME.desktop <<EOF [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Name=Preload the Distrobox container BOXNAME Exec=/usr/bin/podman start BOXNAME EOF

    This is a KDE specific workaround, as only "Applications" reliably autostart.

    In the app menu enter "Autostart" and go to the settings page, the box should appear there.

    Log out and back in, go to the same settings page to verify.

    Choosing a hybrid Wayland Compositor
  • you could keep an eye out for LXQt.

    I did. Looked at the desktop and it looks horrendous. pcmanfm-qt is the only usable app (and I find it second best filemanager after dolphin).

    Their packages are supposedly very outdated on Fedora, which I didnt verify. And using Ubuntu base is a nogo for irrational reasons.

    On Fedora they still rely on tons of Qt5 just like Plasma, which I find unacceptable.

    Also I never used a Desktop where compositor settings are simply unsupported. It may run, but you still need config files, and I wonder why use settings then.

    I really dont need so switch, KDE is awesome. It is not a pain anymore since plasma 6, Fedora Kinoite is very well maintained, Flatpaks work well, it has the best app support of all, legacy support, theming, cursors.

    Its literally just for the curiosity.

    I have a spare SSD where I try COSMIC too. Its tiling is usable thanks to some random dude that joined Fedora and created a SIG 2 months or so after that and now packages all the apps (He added drag to tile support). Thanks btw.

    But it looks pretty ugly, it mimics the useless GNOME top bar, the app menu is kinda bad, so you would need to write at least 2 applets and replace the preinstalled ones.

    Not a dealbreaker, and it works really good.

  • A tool on Linux to scan for inboxes on other mailservers?
  • Damn, thanks for the info.

    Definetly not wanting to land on a spam list...

    So I will test the mails with burner accounts? Which would be a bit sus, but I could just write "DO YOU WANT TO STRENGTHEN YOUR ERECTION" and that would end in spam anyways

  • A tool on Linux to scan for inboxes on other mailservers?

    I know this is basically a spam tool.

    I think to know that you can query some info from a mailserver to test if an address exists.

    I would like to find hidden addresses of some companies, for example I want to test if [email protected] exists.

    Anyone know how to do that?

    Mozilla: Help us uncover Firefox 3rd party installers
  • I wonder of they think of all the Linux installs from the various repos. These are nearly all unmodified and will send data to Mozilla, containing an "unknown" install origin.

    • distro repos
    • flathub
    • fedora flatpaks
    • snap store

    These may still pull stuff, not per user but per distro.

  • Choosing a hybrid Wayland Compositor
    1. I want an automated Window manager that is light. KWin rules dont work that well for me, as I get tons of dialog windows in fullscreen.
    2. More lightweight. Plasma is a dependency mess, I opened a Goal to make this less bad, and I am experimenting with a minimal, Qt6 and Wayland only install
  • Choosing a hybrid Wayland Compositor

    1. I am very unlikely to switch away from KDE Plasma 6
    2. I would anyways like to try Sway or the like
    3. I dont use virtual desktops and find just navigating through a bottom taskbar makes more sense for me
    4. I have many apps fullscreen, and would never tile more than once vertically, as I am on a Laptop
    5. I want: NightLight, tray icons, a good app menu, many KDE Apps (Dolphin, Kate, Ark, Gwenview, Spectacle Edit feature at least)

    Are Wayland WMs ready for this use case? What would you recommend to fill these exact requirements?

    Android has a "Ctrl+Z" feature, the keyboards just dont support it

    Hacker's Keyboard (the first one), Florisboard Beta, FUTO Keyboard and more have a button to reverse and repeat the actions.

    This can reverse stuff like deleting a text and more.

    This feature exists, but just isnt used!

    Supported Keyboards

    • Hacker's Keyboard
    • Thumbkey
    • FUTO Keyboard
    • Florisboard (beta)
    • Heliboard (modern Fork of OpenBoard)
    • Unexpected Keyboard
    • AnySoft Keyboard

    Akademy 2023: Spooky Action at a Distance: Remote Desktop for KWin Wayland

    They want to use RDP as that protocol allows codecs for compressing sent video and audio.

    A problem is though, that Microsoft doesnt support AV1, opus or other free codecs, so it is problematic on many distros.

    Spice may be an alternative but less established.

    GNOME also has to use many hacks to even enable remote login.

    Linux user survey! 🐧

    pad.tchncs.de Encrypted Form

    CryptPad: end-to-end encrypted collaboration suite

    Encrypted Form

    To get an idea of this community, and to try the cool CryptPad Survey feature, I created a pretty big Linux usage survey!

    The data is anonymized and the content encrypted on the server. I plan on publishing the results.

    Have fun!

    It works on hardened Firefox on a phone, but the experience is better on a PC.

    1. I am very sorry but the question "it is okay that my above message gets published" cannot reasonably be respected, as the text is just dumped into a single block
    2. Lag caused some empty questions to appear, removed
    3. A question about disk encryption and "why do you use other OS" got mixed up
    4. i changed the wording of some questions or added more options, so there may be duplicate old answers or too little new ones. You can edit your submission and update your answers.
