There is currently a campaign that tries to raise money to improve #Anbox (an Android emulator) on #ubuntutouch.
#Volla has already donated a thousand Euros to kick things of and the campaign has raised 1500€ 💸 so far.
This is a good start, but they need at least 6000€ to hire a freelancer 💻️.
If you are a #FOSS or #Linux enthusiast, please consider donating and help to make #linuxonmobile happen.
Thank you ♥️
We should never forget that A. Elbakyan's life became *very* complicated because she created this tool.
I am thankful to her, but very angry at colleagues of mine who use her tool but keep publishing their works at publishing houses that use expensive paywalls and sued (or could have sued) A. Elbakyan for breaking them.
F*** knowledge economy!
If flatpaks ask #geoclue for location service access #phosh can now handle that as a #geoclue agent (which became useful after fixing that for recent kernels using cgroupv2 (https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/geoclue/geoclue/-/merge_requests/81):
A corporation will do an ostensibly good thing only if it helps it extract more value from you.
A government will regulate corporations only if it helps further its power over you.
It's by necessity we rely on either depending on the situation. Neither of them deserve trust however. Corporations and governments are NOT your friends and they won't hesitate to team up against YOU if it helps their common bottomline. Which is less for you and more for them.
QR reading support is now added to Megapixels :D
