  • Maybe they fixed that part, but that isn't a good thing. Now you can't feel whether something is installed as snap and will probably run into snap issues without a clue what could be causing them.

  • CRTs don't have pixels so the resolution of the signal isn't that important. It's about the inherent softness you get from the technology. It's better than any anti-aliasing we have today.

  • Copied from another comment I wrote about that:

    Because snaps are terrible. They constantly break parts of apps for no reason. If you have container issues with a flatpak, just use flatseal to punch a hole through the container. With snaps, people will tell you to install the non-snap version because that's easier than beating snap into submission. I learned that the hard way when I had a university project with kubernetes and docker was installed as a snap. I spent way too much time trying to make it work at all before giving up and switching to a VM on my work laptop where it went surprisingly smooth without snaps.

    Flatpaks are better in every way and since this isn't about money, we should all just move on and use the best tool for the job.

    But what does canonical think should happen when you run sudo apt install firefox and press Y? That's right, you now have firefox as a snap. Have fun waiting for 5 seconds every time you start it.

  • Use something other than gnome and, while you're at it, you might as well use something other than ubuntu.

    KDE is very hard to break, you can go wild with customization there.

  • Fairphone has created a smartphone that owners can repair themselves - This sustainable smartphone aims to reduce global electronic waste
  • Unfortunately you need something with long firmware and software support. Qualcomm is your enemy, they stop updating the firmware of their chips after about two years and that's why android phones often stop getting updates less than 2 years after you buy them.

  • Meine elektrischen Außenspiegel sind Gold wert, wenn mal wieder ein Passat dicht auffährt und ich meinen eigenen Schatten auf Straßenschildern sehe.

    Hier zwischen Karlsruhe und Heidelberg fährt jeder dritte VW (inklusive Audi, Skoda, Seat und dem Rest des Konzerns) mit komplett verstellten Scheinwerfern rum. Ich glaube es gibt in der Gegend die eine oder andere Werkstatt, die Glühbirnen austauscht und dann die Scheinwerfer einfach wieder irgendwie zusammenbaut.

    Bei den LED-Scheinwerfern passiert das mit VW aber auch extrem oft, als würden sie ab Werk einfach gar nichts einstellen und die Verantwortung an die Händler abgeben. Die Händler stellen nämlich mit Sicherheit nichts ein.

  • Do food delivery persons prefer cash tip?
  • Over here in germany, tipping is synonymous with cash and using the tip feature of apps is frowned upon because it adds an unnecessary middleman.

    Not sure how transferrable that is to other countries, us germans really like cash.

  • New phone with Corning Gorilla Glass Victus: should I still buy a screen protector?
  • Gorilla Glass Victus is just a marketing term. It's still glass, and glass breaks (and gets scratched). Always use a screen protector. If your phone has curved edges on the front, a case is also mandatory because curved screens are very easy to break.

  • Just received my Steam Deck OLED. The screen looks so good.
  • 90hz screen with 180hz polling is what my phone uses as well, it's nice that the deck has now caught up to that.

    Also remember to leave your original deck on when downloading games on the new one so it can transfer them locally, which should be faster. There's a setting for that, but I think it's on by default.

  • Any experience with teaching kids Linux?
  • I know a lot of people my age (early 20s) who use tiktok and have no idea what tracking or privacy mean.

    Kids might be smart, but if this is all they've known and it works well enough they don't pay attention and don't use their critical thinking.

  • Deciding between Fairphone 5 and Pixel 8

    My phone is no longer getting updates, so it's time to buy a new one. The hardware could easily last 1-2 more years but I'd have to replace the battery, which is a pain on my phone.

    I'm looking for something that has long firmware support and some good privacy roms while not being worse than my current Oneplus 8 in any way. I don't care about cameras at all and I'm still mad about the missing headphone jacks, but unfortunately those don't seem to be coming back and I can survive without one.

    So, the options are Fairphone 5 and Pixel 8 from what I found out. The Pixel 8 is a little small for my taste and with 256GB storage it's more expensive, but it does have grapheneOS, which I'd prefer because the app sandboxing would allow me to have peace of mind even if I have tracking apps sitting on my phone. I could use the proper play store and do IAPs without fiddling with aurora store. I use it already and it isn't great.

    With the Fairphone, I'd get a replacable battery so I can buy a spare and swap instead of charging my phone. I used to do that with the good old S3 and it was great. MicroSD slot is also nice. But the ROM options are CalyxOS and /e/OS. I know Calyx has a nice firewall to keep tracking at bay and /e/OS is an LOS fork mainly focused on getting rid of google from what I know, but neither has as much protection as grapheneOS.

    My main goal is to become less dependant on google while still being able to use google maps for my way to work. The traffic aware routing saves me 10 minutes every day so letting google know when I go to work is a fair deal.

    So, any opinions or experiences with either? TIA

    Error when opening link

    I tried tapping the link in the body of this post: https://lemmy.ml/post/7227071 and got a toast saying "Error opening link". Long pressing the text and copying the link works, so I guess there's some kind of parsing issue. The link was https://www.kcsoftwares.com/?sumo and the post has it formatted as https://www.kcsoftwares.com/?sumo

    Boost version shows 1.0.1 (4) in the app info.

    Performance issues on posts with many embedded images

    As the title says, posts like this: https://lemmy.world/post/6836351 with many good quality pictures embedded into the text cause boost to become very laggy.

    It's nice to finally have an explanation for the stuff I thought was wrong with me, but I feel very stupid for missing all the clues earlier.

    Recommendations for factory games

    I recently started playing Dyson sphere program on my PC again and I get that lovely feeling of being drawn into the game for hours. But since it's a very mouse-centric game, I don't want to play it on a steam deck. And because I sit at a desk all day for work, I'd rather lay down on the couch and use my deck instead.

    Are there any games like DSP that work well with a controller? I find that if I use the trackpad too much, my right wrist starts to hurt.

    Is it worth it to learn android app development just to contribute to Jerboa?

    Hi,

    my Android dev experience consists of a single school project back in the day before android studio existed, it populated a few menus dynamically from text files and displayed text/images.

    I am a developer, but I write business software in a field that's usually 10 years or so behind the bleeding edge.

    I'd consider myself a power user of android, flashing roms or kernels isn't new to me, but development is.

    Jerboa is great already, but I see a lot of things that could be improved and many of them seem rather easy.

    How much time would it take to get to a point where I could implement simple stuff, like adding an entry to the context menu of comments that lets me view the raw text?

    AFK Type 10 advice

    Hi,

    I recently built myself a Type 10 to sit in a low RES and hunt bounties without me. The current build was already destroyed twice, one time I respawned on the closest station and one time I spawned in a detention facility.

    Not entirely sure what happened either time, but whenever I was watching it, it seemed to do just fine with 4 pips to shields.

    One thing I should probably mention is that I bring collector limpets to scoop up the manufactured mats and I have it set up so that one is launched every 5 minutes or so. That of course leads to stolen cargo and stolen cargo in combination with enemy hatchbreakers leads to fines for jettisoning stolen cargo. I'm not entirely sure, but I think one of my deaths can be explained by the fact that fines eventually turn into bounties. Is there a way to place my point defenses so that they properly protect against hatchbreakers or another way be safe? Or do I need to stop using limpets when I'm not there and go back to dav's hope for manufactured mats?
