I'm not trying to start a war here, just wondering what your takes are. They pretty much have the same concept of lightweight desktop, but with different toolkits.

I'm a KDE person myself, but I've had experience with XFCE.

I've tried LXQt in the past but never really gotten into it, perhaps the timing was just not right.


Note Application

Do we have a default application for Note?

I know it sounds mundane, but we have calculator, sound recorder, music player, even web browser. It just seems a bit strange we don't have a basic plain-text note application.

I usually use Markor. I have no complaint overall except that it would stick out like sore thumb on my front screen due to it not having the themed icon.

Devs & fellow users, what do y'all think?


Show Comment Context (instead of everything)

Hello devs!

Just a little input from me: when we're showing specific comment (like from profile or from inbox), it would be nicer to be able to show just the parent comment for context, instead of showing the whole thing (only to have the user look for it).

Margot Robbie Is Taking a Break From Acting After Barbie in Case People Are Sick of Her Margot Robbie Is Taking a Break From Acting After Barbie in Case People Are 'Sick' of Her - IGN

Margot Robbie has revealed she is taking a short break from acting to focus on producing because "everybody is probably sick" of the sight of her after last summer's Barbie movie.

Quick Home Button

Hi there! Thank you for having this app on F-Droid, and more importantly for creating this app! As a (former) user of Infinity, I'm really grateful to have basically the same app for Lemmy.

I'd like to give a bit of my input. Actually this is a bit of my pet peeve from the old app as well.

Compared to the other apps (e.g. Boost, Jerboa), this one does not provide a homing button (i.e. a clear way to return to top). While the Refresh button in the menu is useful, relying on that is less than ideal. It is awkward at best and confusing at worst.

I'm not sure if the general consensus here would agree (some input here would be appreciated), the general flow on social media app would be to simply press the home button to go to the top of the feed, occasionally swiping down to refresh. This has worked for me not only on Twitter & Instagram, but also on Mastodon apps (both the official app as well as Tusky), the other Reddit apps, as well as other Lemmy apps.

I noticed that the bottom nav bar is identical with the Reddit app. However, the two buttons on the left are redundant as they function exactly the same (due to Lemmy not having the equivalent to multireddit). Could we have the leftmost button as home? I feel like it's the de facto standard these days.

I'd like to know what y'all think!

ThinkPad pastermil

Firewire, anyone?

Any Thinkpad user here using their Firewire port? What would you use it for? I read that we can make ad-hoc connection between two computers.


nouveau driver heat issue, anyone?

Not looking for a solution, really. Ended up installing proprietary nvidia driver because I need the machine for my job. Just wondering if anyone have similar experience.

I have a Thinkpad W530 with K1000M running Linux Mint I am using for work. Was using nvidia driver v390, life was good.

Then came LMDE 6. I was thrilled to have Debian 12 instead of Ubuntu 22.04 as the base, so I decided to take the leap.

Everything went well except for the nouveau driver, which I found to be sub-optimal, particularly with the thermal management.

After the upgrade, the machine became scalding hot especially around the heatsink area. When doing video call, the audio is choppy. It sometimes gets so hot that it restarts itself as I was using it. Almost everytime I leave the laptop on overnight, I'd find the desktop clean even though I left things open, showing it's been restarted.

I've only just installed nvidia-tesla-470-driver, so maybe it's too soon to tell. However, the machine is not scalding hot anymore.

Anyone had something like this?
