Jeff MacKinnon reshared this.


I guess with the influx of new users to the Fediverse, we're doing introductions now, so here's mine:

I'm a # and # enthusiast and developer. I'm also an # who's trying to create safe spaces for those who are recovering from high-demand control groups.

Jonathan Lamothe reshared this.


So this whole # # experiment has been a smashing success. This will be the last post I boost from my legacy accounts, and I'll be checking them with less frequency. If you've not followed the new account, now would be a good time.

I want to extend a special thanks to opencube and fosstodon for giving me my first taste of the #.

Has anyone gotten the microphone for a Bluetooth headset to work in #Debian?
@Erik L. Midtsveen :debian: Yeah, I found a tutorial that mentioned that, but it required tweaking of config files (which I'm fine with) and also adding a PPA (which is a hassle to say the least).
Here's the one I found. Sadly, it's for Ubuntu-based systems.

I'm sure vim has some kind of mode it lets you start it in that can mimic it πŸ˜›
Do with sed 😁


Trying to set up a #PeerTube instance. First problem I had was that the version of #node in the #Debian repositories was too old. After figuring out how to install the current version, I'm now faced with the problem of it being too recent.

error eslint-plugin-jsdoc@38.0.6: The engine "node" is incompatible with this module. Expected version "^12 || ^14 || ^16 || ^17". Got "18.7.0"
It's gonna never cause a problem!
On top of it all, I'm using a reverse proxy over a wireguard VPS because I have an 8TB drive I want to take advantage of for the file storage.
So, it turns out that the nginx configuration that comes with PeerTube, despite using a reverse proxy to port 9000 on localhost, still requires read/write access to the data directory. That doesn't complicate things at all.
@silverwizard Considering it. The only catch is that sshfs locks up the system for a non-trivial amount of time when the connection is lost. Also, up 'till this point, I've had it set up so that my local machines can SSH into the VPS, but not the other way around.

The workaruond I was thinking of was setting up an nginx reverse proxy at both ends.


Content warning: SSH help

sshd.config perhaps ?
@herve_02 Yup, that's the problem right there.

I knew it was going to be something stupid like that.



Finally got the last of the fallout from the changeover to # sorted out. I'll probably make a # post of it later.


Okay so with the OS change to #, I decided to try out a new desktop manager. I thought I'd give # Plasma a go, since I hadn't looked at it in a while and my machine's powerful enough to handle a little eye candy.

KDE Connect is a freaking game changer. How did I not know about it before now?
I wonder how well gsconnect works with XFCE4. I find that GTK stuff "feels" right within XFCE4 more that QT stuff.

It's been a while since I've used Ubuntu, but I use mainly Debian so I'm familiar with how to get WiFi and other stuff working.

My preference is XFCE4 desktop environment. It's the only DE I'm aware of which rotates text 90 degrees on vertical taskbar window buttons.
Yes, Debian is a bit more manual, for better or worse.
