Niri 0.1.1 Wayland Compositor Adds Support For Taskbars, Output Rotation & More.​



In case you missed it debuting last week was Niri v0.1 as a new, scrollable-tiling Wayland compositor inspired by the GNOME extension PaperWM. Out today is a follow-on release with more fixes and a few additional features for this new Wayland compositor.

Niri 0.1.1 brings a better fresh install workflow for cases where no configuration files are yet created. Niri 0.1.1 also adds wlr-foreign-toplevel-management protocol support. By supporting wlr-foreign-toplevel-management, Niri now supports various Wayland taskbars like Waybar and Sfwbar:
Niri 0.1.1 also now supports output rotation for displays, keyboard LEDs now work correctly under Niri, and there are a variety of other fixes.

И дан данас не могу да сварим Vim из неког разлога. Скоро сам покушавао да мало дубље зађем у тематику... Авај. Ако се неко осећа исто као и ја, ал и даље хоће да брља по фајловима кроз терминал, ево алтернативе:
micro editor

Није ни приближно толико моћан, али задовољава основне потребе.

Distrobox​


Use any Linux distribution inside your terminal. Enable both backward and forward compatibility with software and freedom to use whatever distribution you’re more comfortable with. Distrobox uses podman, docker or lilipod to create containers using the Linux distribution of your choice. The created container will be tightly integrated with the host, allowing sharing of the HOME directory of the user, external storage, external USB devices and graphical apps (X11/Wayland), and audio.

Odlična stvar pa kome treba evo linka za dalje:

Sledeći napad na slobodu izražavanja Microsoft je najavio planove za onesposobljavanje računara koja pripadaju ljudima koji dele "nemainstream" sadržaj na internetu kako bi se borio protiv takozvanih "dezinformacija" uoči izbora 2024. godine.
Koji treba da se održe 5 novembra 2024.
Političari će se ubuduće otvoreno svađati s biznisom kako bi suzbili neugodna mišljenja.
Ovo je jasan napad na član 5 ustava SAD.
Prema kojem cenzura nije dopuštena.
Može se pretpostaviti da ove protivustavne mahinacije neće biti ograničene na Ameriku.

Lightweight Windows-like desktop LXQt makes leap to Qt 6 with version 2.0​


The next major release of the LXQt desktop should arrive in April. Like the imminent KDE Plasma 6.0, it will use version 6 of the Qt toolkit.


The development team pre-announced LXQt 2.0 as a replacement for the current LXQt 1.4.0, which came out last November. The 1.x versions were built around Qt 5, which is now past the end of its supported lifetime, but the new release will use the current Qt 6.


LXQt is the successor project to the widely used LXDE desktop, which still features in some editions of the Raspberry Pi OS, for instance. Both are lightweight, Windows 9x-style desktops for FOSS Unixes including Linux and the BSDs.


LXDE was implemented using version 2 of GNOME's Gtk toolkit, as were Xfce and MATE. As we mentioned when discussing Gtk 5, it took both Xfce and MATE years to migrate from Gtk 2 to Gtk 3. Xfce 4.14 finished migrating its core components to Gtk 3 in 2019, just one year before Gtk 4 appeared.

LXDE's project lead, Dr Jen Lee "PCMan" Hong, chose to move to Qt, Gtk's main rival, instead. This still means tracking upstream Qt versions, though. In 2014, LXQt 0.8 switched to Qt 5, and currently it uses Qt 5.15. However, that reached EOL in May 2023. So, just like KDE Plasma 6.0, the project must now change tack to the current Qt 6.

The good news is that LXQt 2 will bring some neat new features, such as an improved "Fancy" application menu, with a handy "All Applications" category, improved search, and the ability to pin favorite apps to the top level of the menu. Less visible, but potentially useful to some, is Wayland support. There are still several tasks marked "To do" on the project's Kanban board but progress looks promising, and we suspect that a working version of the desktop would improve Wayland's desirability for quite a few people.


This release will arrive too late for inclusion in the latest version of Lubuntu, but that's a problem that the Lubuntu team has faced before. LXQt 1.0 arrived too late for Lubuntu 22.04, so it's been shipping with version 0.17, but you can update to a newer release direct from the project's own repositories. We're sure that the same will be eventually be true for Lubuntu "Noble Numbat.

Linux 6.9 Adds New Build-Time Control Whether To Authorize Attached USB Devices.​


The in-development Linux 6.9 kernel is introducing a new USB_DEFAULT_AUTHORIZATION_MODE Kconfig build-time switch to change the default authorization mode for how Linux should deal with attached USB devices.

Linux for years has allowed locking down USB devices to those that are internal or enforcing other restrictions on USB devices but for Linux 6.9 is the first time having a build-time control over the default USB authorization mode.

Making use of the new USB_DEFAULT_AUTHORIZATION_MODE build option can set the default mode to be authorized for all devices (the default behavior), unauthorized for all devices, or authorized only for internal USB devices. The authorization mode default can still be overrode at boot-time using the usbcore.authorized_default= command-line option. This Linux 6.9 option basically makes it easier for Linux distribution vendor kernels and administrators spinning their own kernels to have more control over how USB devices should behave according to their desired security policy.

The USB_DEFAULT_AUTHORIZATION_MODE help text sums up the new option as:

1711051717908.png

This option allows you to choose whether USB devices that are connected to the system can be used by default, or if they are locked down.

With value 0 all connected USB devices with the exception of root hub require user space authorization before they can be used.

With value 1 (default) no user space authorization is required to use connected USB devices.

With value 2 all connected USB devices with exception of internal USB devices require user space authorization before they can be used. Note that in this mode the differentiation between internal and external USB devices relies on ACPI, and on systems without ACPI selecting value 2 is analogous to selecting value 0.

XWayland Rootful Lands HiDPI / Fractional Scaling Support.​

Running XWayland in rootful mode now allows for working HiDPI and fractional scaling support.

XWayland's rootful mode can allow for easily running an entire desktop within a window on a Wayland session. The XWayland rootful mode saw lots of work over the past year and back in November a full request providing HiDPI support was opened. It's that code that was finally merged overnight.

The merge request went through finally and now XWayland when in rootful mode can enjoy HiDPI. Red Hat's Olivier Fourdan explained of his work in that merge request:
"As we all know too well, Xwayland does not play nice with HiDPI or even fractional scaling in Wayland.
The reason for this is that Xwayland always applies the same scale 1 to all its surfaces, regardless of the actual scale specified by the Wayland output.

This is unfortunately necessary because Xwayland is an X11 server and all X11 clients running on a Wayland desktop share the same Xwayland rootless server, so it's impossible to have mixed scaled between different X11 clients depending on which outpout they reside (see #1318 for my take on this).

But the same limitation about mixed DPI does not apply to rootful Xwayland, since all X11 clients running on a rootful Xwayland are visually placed on the same visible root window, so we could just resize the root window depending on the output scale, like any other Wayland client does.

That means that moving the rootful window from an output with scale 1 to another output with scale 2 would trigger an XRandR reconfiguration."

Another step forward for Wayland support this year in what's looking to be quite nice and seeing more sunsetting around conventional X.Org in 2024.

The rEFInd Boot Manager​

Jedna odlična stvar za sve vas o čemu se radi sledi info o tome.

This page describes rEFInd, my fork of the rEFIt boot manager for computers based on the Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) and Unified EFI (UEFI). Like rEFIt, rEFInd is a boot manager, meaning that it presents a menu of options to the user when the computer first starts up, as shown below. rEFInd is not a boot loader, which is a program that loads an OS kernel and hands off control to it. Many popular boot managers, such as the Grand Unified Bootloader (GRUB), are also boot loaders, which can blur the distinction in many users' minds. All EFI-capable OSes include boot loaders, so this limitation isn't a problem. If you're using Linux, you should be aware that several EFI boot loaders are available, so choosing between them can be a challenge. In fact, since version 3.3.0, the Linux kernel can function as an EFI boot loader for itself, which gives rEFInd characteristics similar to a boot loader for Linux. See my Web page on this topic for more information.

How to Bring Back Ubuntu’s Iconic Login Sound.​


If you only started using Ubuntu sometime after 2012 then you have my apologies: this article won’t make a whole lot of sense.


But if your roots with the distro reach back farther then the following curio might appeal (though that ‘might’ is, I accept, doing a lot of lifting).


When I reported on the new IRC-based chat app Linux Mint is building a commenter amusingly referred to IRC adherents as “nostalgia connoisseurs”. In some ways, that label applies to me for writing this post.


I am a nostalgic dweeb — sorry/not sorry! and the “golden era” of Ubuntu is something I look back to with a great fondness. You know how a certain smell can transport you back in time to a specific moment or situation? Vintage Ubuntu (it pains me to describe it as such) does that to me.


Not sure I’m alone in thinking Ubuntu’s old login sound is iconic, though. Even today, in 2024, more than 12 years after it was disabled, it still sounds oh-so Ubuntu:

Ubuntu disabled this login sound in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It later refreshed the sound theme with more “modern” sounds but didn’t (IIRC) re-enable a login sound by default (which is why, reading this, you probably can’t recall what the new one sounds like 🙉).


Anyway, as said: I’m a sucker for nostalgia — so I decided to bring it back.


If you want to use the classic Ubuntu login in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS or later (I tested in Ubuntu 23.10) here’s what to do:


  1. Open Startup Applications
  2. Click ‘Add’
  3. In the dialog, enter a name (e.g., “login sound”)
  4. In the command field paste: /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login"
  5. Click ‘Add’

You’re not finished yet, though.


If you log out and in again right now then the login sound from the Yaru sound theme will play. You need to download the old Ubuntu login sound and move it to the correct location in order to hear it.


You could download the old ubuntu-sounds theme package, unpack it, move the ‘ubuntu’ folder to the relevant location, and set it default in dconf. But I do not recommend that method because the old Ubuntu sound theme does no include all sounds that modern GNOME uses.


An easier™ solution is to only replace the login sound file in the Yaru theme. This will keep the rest of the system sounds (like low battery warning) in tact (and means you don’t need to change any dconf settings either, which is a bonus).

You’ll need to be root to move the file in to place. You can do it from the command line (assuming the sound file is in your ~/Downloads folder) by running sudo mv ~/Downloads/desktop-login.ogg /usr/share/sounds/Yaru/.


Now you’re done; log out and back in and — ta-dah, the classic Ubuntu login sound 🥁 plays.


Don’t hear anything? Double check your volume isn’t too low or currently muted.


To “undo” the changes first reinstall the yaru-theme-sound package to overwrite your changes. Then open the Startup Applications tool and uncheck or remove the login entry you added earlier.
