Been diving into the world of AWS Codebuild and Packer the past few days for building our custom AMI's at work. It'll give us a lot more automation options...if I can get past this annoying Choco TLS error.

With my inner voice flashing warnings on my hud that it's a bad idea, I'm going to give Plasma another shot. I still think Cinnamon is my sweetspot desktop UI..but something about the futuristic/cyberpunkish transparency of Plasma keeps pulling me back. We'll see how it goes.

My brand new System76 Lemur Pro arrived today. Such an awesome little machine. Looking forward to lots of fun with it. Still running Pop!Os for the moment, but switched to Kubuntu for the desktop env. Nice job guys!

Thinking about buying a Slimbook pro/x 14. Does anyone know if you can drive a monitor or dock off the USB c ports? Need it to work with my HP USB C dock I use for work.

Setup Joplin to sync with my Nextcloud instance. We'll see if I like this setup.

I love Plasma as a desktop, but their menu drives me to drink. Any snaps that are installed almost never show up in the menu. Snaps I had installed an were working for some reason have now disappeared.

Anyone use Virtualbox on KDE Plasma? Everytime I hit the super key to bring up the menu it brings up the menu on the guest AND host OS's. Doesn't do this in Gnome. Was wondering if anyone has a fix.

Just realized my laptop was never upgraded from UB 19.04 to 19.10. Time to take the upgrade dive.

I get to learn now to create terraform modules... tonight.... for a code review tomorrow...

No pressure..

I have a D6000 dock at work that consistantly disconnects, killing my monitors in the process. I followed the attached link instructions, but it seems like now my machine doesn't suspend. (Kubuntu 19.10). Would love any suggestions anyone might have to get around this issue. (Dell Latitude 7480)

@kde Noticing that any snaps that are installed never seem to show up in the menu regardless of what distro I use. Anyway of fixing this? Getting tired of adding them manually.

Anyone have a recommendation for a good offline news app? I like Pocket but it seems to only sync when you open it, and you can't tell it to watch for news tends like 'Linux', or 'gaming'.

Does anyone know if you can use Sailfish OS as a mobile pentesting platform?

Just started using KDE Plasma as a daily driver. Every time I unlock my screen it's prompting me 'how do I want to arrange my screens'. This is REALLY annoying. Anyone know how to default this to 'leave it as is'?

Does anyone have the link to see all the Dell Sputnik laptops available, or do you just find one and see if Ubuntu is an install option?

I've grown to hate streaming media. My current net connection sucks so streaming 4k is problematic. Really wish the fire TV and / or Shield would let me cache offline like tablets do...

Wow, KDE Neon has changed some since the last time I used it. Not sure if I'm a fan of the new cli package manager. Having to remember pacman was why I stopped using Arch...

Can any Mastodon clients do periodic refreshes? Have limited bandwidth in more and more places so I'm trying to find more offline capable apps.
