So Pop!_OS 19.04 drops icons for third-party applications and suddenly my experience is an inconsistent mess of crappy icons. They had the right idea earlier. The #1 problem with desktop Linux today isn’t missing features or performance or anything like that, it’s consistency.

@espen@md.fed.im Haha, you’re very welcome :)

@eldertfrancke This is what happens when your operating system is basically a glorified storefront. What a sad joke.

Hmm, the upgrade to 19.04 also messed up tehfuck

fuck

Now there’s one app I can’t live without :) (Removed all copies I could find in /usr/bin /usr/local/bin and reinstalled via sudo apt install thefuck)

@yukiame Haha, I’m a big fan of XFCE (GalliumOS, built on top of Xubuntu, uses it and I used that to liberate an old Chromebook recently: ar.al/2018/12/31/sometimes-you)

@ericmann @chriswiegman Not sure about the enhanced volumes controls. I had a neat extension that separated out the volumes and allowed you to quickly switch devices from the status bar but that looks disabled now.

Right, well the first login resulted in a black screen but things seem fine after a reboot. Apart from some disabled extensions, a big step backwards in terms of visual consistency with the icons, and WTF, it uninstalled OBS Studio?!

@how If we’re going to flatten the power structures that means we have to forgo power when offered and design the sorts of systems where power is distributed as equally as possible.

@sintrenton @how Yeah, she’s acting in exactly the right way. We don’t need more people on pedestals.

@pavi I thought we might be able to do something in May in Amsterdam but my focus is on making progress on Hypha right now so it may have to keep till next year.

Upgrading my computer to the newly-released Pop!_OS 19.04.

If you don’t hear from me from a while, you’ll know why… 🤞

No, thank you.

Here’s to a world without leaders. Not me nor anyone else. Hierarchy is the problem.

@mathew Windows isn’t a platform I lose too much sleep over.

@ninja Take a look in GNOME Software if you have it. As I recall I had to mess around with some settings (of course) before I could install the BIOS updates.

@K_REY_C Thanks for the feedback, Kyle. Sadly, that is a limitation; I don’t see support for shared hosting being compatible with the vision I have for Hypha (which Indie Web Server is an early component of). The production use case is limited to VPS and above.

Thanks again for your feedback. As you said, there might be others so at the very least I should document that better :)
