If you need or want Zoom on the Raspberry Pi 4/400 or some other ARM device, then please let the Zoom developers know on this post:
typing this on a raspberry pi 4 (I also have a pi 400 with Manjaro as well) with Manjaro ARM mate, it works like a charm with a slight overclock of course. As I have been able to prove to myself over the past couple weeks, ARM computers on the level of the Pinebook Pro and the Raspberry Pi 4 are definitely enough in terms of computing power for my daily-driving needs.
@kde I am very impressed with how well Plasma 5 works on both the pi 400 and rk3399 devices like the RockPro64 and Pinebook Pro. Keep up the good work. I wrote a short blog post detailing my experience with ARM computers so far, but I am thinking that I should write a post going into detail about just how well Plasma 5 works on these low-powered computers.
I am going to be writing a series of articles in the coming weeks and months where I document my experience using ARM devices for day-to-day computing.
here is the first one: http://stormyknight.xyz/view.php?filename=2020_12_19-armcomputing1.md
Are you tired of your computer not being owned by you, the computer user? If so, then I may have a suggestion in the form of an article: http://stormyknight.xyz/view.php?filename=2020_11_24-computer_user_empowerment.md
Microsoft has seemingly made an oopsie with Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. See my article on the subject for my take on the matter: http://stormyknight.xyz/view.php?filename=2020_11_23_minecraft.md
I have my new website up, and I have already uploaded two articles. Should anyone wish to read those articles, you can find them under the articles page on http://stormyknight.xyz
yes that is http not https, I don't require you to enter any information at all on my site. If you wish to send me a comment on an article, then please send me an email (located on the contact page).
A comic strip. About a computer virus. The world needs more stuff like that right now. (The comic, not the virus.)
Oh, if you want more nerdy stuff like this -- and to talk with other nerds in a politics (and troll-free) community... Clicky-clicky.
@elementary I am thinking about taking on the task of creating Elementary OS 6 builds for the RockPro64 (an SBC offered by Pine64). Would there be any issues with me doing this? (I don't think I will distribute the builds unless you want me to though). I love the idea of using Elementary OS 6 on my Pinebook Pro, but I would like to be able to use it on the RockPro64 as well.
@elementary Typing this using Olifant on my Pinebook Pro from an Elementary OS 6 preview build. (to anyone who wishes to attempt this, do so knowing that EOS 6 is unfinished software so there are bound to be incompatiblities with EOS 5 apps)
The builds may not have the ability to install apps from the AppCenter yet (probably for good reason), but because these apps are open source, there is no reason that I can't go grab the source code of my favourite app and compile it ;)
Congrats to our friends in the @email@example.com community on their latest release! We’re super excited to build the next elementary OS on such an amazing foundation 😘
oh dear... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvIZELeo3cc
@elementary thanks for the cool operating system. I did have to make a few tweaks to get it working correctly with software that isn't in the elementary os ecosystem (such as installing the old appindicator wingpanel extension), however, the experience since then has been amazing.
Now I just wish I could come up with some ideas for some useful software to publish to the AppCenter. Any ideas?
for those on Elementary OS that miss being able to use tootle to use mastodon, here is a git repo of a tootle fork that fixes it: https://github.com/cleac/tootle
bleakgrey (the developer of tootle) appears to be working on a refactor of their version. I hope that it goes well for them.
Really liking this Elementary OS firefox theme: https://github.com/Zonnev/elementaryos-firefox-theme
We've received our internal Dogwood batch 🎉 and will be sharing news of the hardware changes and improvements to performance, battery life and thermals soon! #Librem5
