const_void OP ,

Hmm, I'm not seeing either of those issues. I have a 1.5TB library imported and have listened for many hours straight without a crash. Version 0.4.2 was just released today. Maybe give that a shot. https://github.com/ludouzi/fooyin/releases/tag/v0.4.2

const_void OP , (edited )

If you're using the Arch packages there's an issue with the PKGBUILD. The fooyin-git package works correctly though. The issue has now been fixed.

const_void OP ,

Wow, it really does. The good old days are back!

@kde I'm quite happy with the Plasma6 release, but I have number of regression with respect to Plasma5.

The worst, by far, is that lockscreen seems to be broken. I use password or fingerprint, with pam configured to ask for fingerprint after password failure. When I unlock after sleep, the greeter only displays an "unlock" button with an open lock icon. Clicking it does nothing. If I manually trigger the screen locker, I can unlock once, but on the second try it usually hangs.

Second problem: touchpad gestures in wayland. It was already a pain that one could not personalize these actions, but at least the defaults were ok for me (3 finger up/down for desktop grid/present windows). And I could use fusuma for more.
The new defaults hijacks all 3-finger gestures to scroll one virtual desktop up/down left/right which I find useless.

And all those widgets which have not been ported yet, and probably never will. I tried to give a quick look at the two I used most, but it is too far away from my kind of programming.

Knights among toner cartridges ( infosec.pub )

(Business people) speaking a language familiar and dear to them. Its portentous nouns and verbs invest ordinary events with high adventure; executives walk among toner cartridges, caparisoned like knights. We should tolerate them - every person of spirit wants to ride a white horse. -William Strunk Jr. (The Elements of Style)

const_void ,

Everything feels so polished and reworked.

Strange that you say this because not much changed in this release. It’s mainly an update to Qt6. No big UI or UX. What specifically feels different from Plasma 5?

const_void ,

Duntun? Never heard of this brand. Is it safe to use?

const_void ,

What feature are you waiting for in Plasma 6?

const_void ,

will consider having more pizza on layoff days.

And they will only order two pineapple pizzas and you will like it!

const_void ,

Looks awesome to me. Even better than what we have these days.

Judging by all the “Shop like a billionaire” ads during the super bowl, people are still worshipping them.

Linux Magazine dedicates the cover and their main article of their latest issue to Plasma 6.

@linuxmagazine's 5000-word 8-page feature dives deep into why the version number jump (and why now), the current state of Plasma and KDE's ecosystem of apps and frameworks and what it has to offer, and the changes pushing KDE's software to new levels of efficiency, customization, and enhanced user experience.

What are you looking forward to in Plasma 6?

Fill them up with homeless people and solve the housing crisis.

const_void ,

Yeah, but McDonald’s and Shell weren’t making enough so they made the bosses tell us to work from the office.

const_void ,

They’re not even providing any reasoning. Hell, all my bosses are in different time zones and I have no peers in the office.

Same situation here. They made some vague comment about “making connections” in the office but half the people on my team are remote, including managers. It’s all bullshit.

What new features are you most proud of?

What do you use to track BMCs/KVMs/IPMI?

I manage hundreds of servers at work. They each have a BMC (remote power on/off, reset, KVM, etc) and we need to use those features frequently. I’ve been using a Google Docs spreadsheet to track their URLs, what each box is used for, specs, etc but it feels like a dynamic web app would be better for this purpose. Does anyone...

const_void ,

Glad to see the weather applet getting some love with alerts.

const_void ,

Same here. The equipment they use in my office is the cheapest they can possibly find. 1080p monitors, plasticky garbage mice and keyboards.

Plasma 6 Release Candidate 1 has landed.

We are less than 50 days away from the final version of .

Along with Frameworks 6 and KDE Gear 24.02, the Megarelaease on the 28th of February will be one of the biggest and more complex upgrades in KDE's history.

One more RC will be released on the 31st of January and then it will be (hopefully) clear sailing until the final release.

With only 91 days left before launch, today we are releasing the 1st Beta of Plasma 6.

https://kde.org/announcements/megarelease/6/beta1/

This is the time when we call on all testers to download and install it, and stress-test all its features.

What feature are you waiting for?

const_void ,

No need for a petition. Plasma 6 has new icons.

Why wait for Microsoft to catch up with what we've been doing for decades?

Get Plasma, a modern, fully functional, clean, privacy-respecting, non-intrusive operating system now, regardless from where you live and ditch Windows for good.

My company is going to be pushing for three days a week in the office soon. I find it suspicious that so many other components have landed on three days as the magic number. They clearly get together and plan this shit behind our backs.

Return to office is a grift. Tech workers need to unionize.

const_void ,

I’d be fine if we could just keep working from home

const_void , (edited )

Return to the office so we can all jump on Zoom calls with people in other offices? What a fucking joke. “Return to office” is just a giant grift.

const_void ,

Seriously. Why are people choosing to work for these companies? There are other ways to make a buck. Have some fucking morals.

"I've never seen anything like it": Economic analyst stunned at sources of Jared Kushner's funds ( www.salon.com )

Economic analyst Steven Rattner on Monday shared a pie chart showing that all but 1% of the $3 billion in investments in former President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner’s private equity firm Affinity Partners came from foreign sources after he “spent much of his White House tenure cozying up” to Saudi Arabia and...

Meanwhile the average American is struggling to pay rent and bills every month. Fuck this nepobaby.

Yeah, but think of all the Arby’s and McDonald’s restaurants that are no longer getting any business from on-site employees!!1 Will someone please think of the poor Arby’s?!

const_void ,

Almost certainly. Just like the office furniture company that put out this anti-WFH “news article”.
