Hey! I've discovered on matrix a german local administration that hosts its own Mastodon instance. They also have Threema and Telegram accounts... So no WhatsApp!

Why this is not a thing on every country? I mean, as a public service, you should not force your citizens to use any app or service that collects your personal data.


We lacked a communication channel to give you important information, development updates and more in-depth technical articles.
Tonight we're rolling out our developers' blog:


Stay tuned for future updates!

I was reading in the news a #facebook post of a respectable progressive journalist. It was full of taunt and arrogance. Really weird.

A friend told me: it's not him, it's his facebook persona, he is good at it, such posts go viral.

I get your point, participate in the "public discourse", be at the places where people talk, share your opinion. But these platforms have been designed to capture attention and be addictive. To be listened to, you have to become another person. Is it worth it?

The twenty-eighth edition of my weekly collection of Linux Phone news (@PINE64 #PinePhone, @purism #Librem5 and such), #LinBits, is out!

#postmarketOS will now use eg25-manager for managing the #pinephone modem in userspace.

What does this mean for users? A much more stable modem when resuming from suspend!

Thanks to @awai for creating eg25-manager!

(More info about why eg25-manager is a good thing: forum.pine64.org/showthread.ph )

Just some screenshots of Youplay a Youtube music player running on the Pinephone.

Note: Youplay is a Youtube music player made with GTK and Python. It doesn't look that good in my opinion but works really well. (just a little slow at times)

Did you know that the FSF has a PeerTube account? PeerTube is a decentralized, federated video platform powered by ActivityPub and WebTorrent. Subscribe to our page today: u.fsf.org/36m

As far as I know covid vaccination is not mandatory in any EU countries but,

In they'll keep registry of people who refuse . They won't share it with the public (employers etc) but they will share it with the other EU countries for some reason.

In they are thinking to have a vaccination "certificate".
It is going to be only for "personal use", but I guess we all know what that means.

In they might do something similar but I can't find any details

I just found out that from released a ( from the 20's-30's) album named "Songs of Disenchantment - Music from the Greek Underground".
Pure underground greek music in English.


For reference the OG song from 1934


and a version of what you are going to listen in nowadays

I am thinking of creating some videos (HowTos, Tutorials that kind of thing) and uploading them on Peertube (and maybe cross-post to Youtube).
Looking for opinions on what is better for the platform (Peertube/Fediverse).

Boosts welcome.

Development of #PlasmaMobile by @kdecommunity has come a long way recently. We are thrilled and proud to present our #Beta1 realease of this desktop for the @thepine64 #PinePhone.

WAYLAND: what is it, and is it ready for daily use? I take a look at the future of #Linux display servers, the one thing that will finally replace good old X11:

Hey everybody, I am preparing a talk about mobile Linux in 2020, #PinePhone, #Librem5, GUIs, distributions, mainline support etc. Anything I must not miss? #boostsappreciated

So, I would most appreciate boosts on this:

I am looking for a collaborator on creating my company NekoIT. Funds for now are enough to start the service once it is finished, but not to pay an employee. To whoever has sales and/or marketing skills and want to get free courses in programming while getting 30% equity on the company, or remotely agree with this: git.nekoit.xyz/NekoIT/Manifest contact me here on mastodon or at ludovic (at) nekoit.xyz

Now I did an installation of with its new installer. So far everything is great.
Also installed eg25-manager gitlab.com/mobian1/devices/eg2 with power optimizations and updated the modem firmware.
In mobian grep modem -i doesn't show the firmware version but the installation was successful I think.
The only issue, as of now, is that I cannot enable notifications for chatty.
Any recommendations appreciated.

During in order to go out we have to sent an SMS (with the reason we want to go out, supermarket etc) and then an automated replied SMS comes. That for some reason didn't work at all so every time I was out I could possibly receive a fine from the police :( . All other SMSs worked flawlessly for some reason.
Also I couldn't update the modem firmware with qfirehose (glibc) though other users did it succesfully..
