Open source e reader (lemmy.ml)

I recently got a Sony prs 600 e reader from 2009. The battery is at the end of its life (It lasts about 3 days with heavy reading, and a couple weeks without reading). No backlight, no Wi-Fi, just an SD card that I can load epub files and small PDFs. The screen is slow and the contrast isn’t the best. The “touch screen” is...

Kobo e-readers are known to be pretty hackable and many of their models can be used with ‘KoReader’ an open source e-reading OS/app

I’ve been enjoying Codeberg a lot lately.

There should be a way to give directly to the developers

I realize that, after all this time, I have never payed for my all-time favorite games I grew up playing (Fallout 3 & Skyrim). I can pay for it, but I really do not want to pay the money to the Bethesda’s marketing team, CEO, and whoever bullshit middle man who wants a cut of that. I want to give directly to the team that made...

Could you link/provide a list of coop dev groups? I’d love to help support them.

Spread your cheeks, Maggats! You just got pump N’ dumped!

What apps would you love to have open-source alternatives for?

It seems like the FOSS community is continuing to grow, and FOSS apps keep getting better (Immich reallh blew my mind recently), which is a big win 😎 but there are still many apps I use that I would kill for an open source alternative. I am curious what you guys think? Are there any apps you’d love alternatives for?

Timeshift will save you soooooo much pain. Set it up to auto backup a daily image. You can also manually create as many snapshots as you want.

Timeshift has turned system-destroying mistakes I’ve made into mere 5-10 minute inconveniences. You can use it in the command line, so even if you blow up your whole desktop environment/window manager, you can still restore back to a known gold state.

I create a snapshot before any major updates or customizations.

Glad I could help! I wish I knew about it when I first started with Linux.

My weather app of choice for about a year now. Really nice interface and solid performance.

You’re being cringe, mate. The majority of people that use a computer could switch to Linux tomorrow and be totally fine.

I switched my parents to Linux months ago and they haven’t noticed the difference. And my parents know as much about computers as I know about quantum physics, just a hair more than jack shit.

So funny how people like you claim to support FOSS but then constantly dump on Linux and FOSS software. You spread FUD about FOSS, you talk about how it’s only good for nerds and “cult members.”

No, you’re not a realist or pragmatist or whatever you might think of yourself. You’re a corpo simp who won’t support FOSS unless it’s perfect in possible every way. Go take a toss and seethe.

Naw, haven’t seen an ad in years, because I use Adblockers.

Sounds awful though.

I work in IT. I have three, 2 standard orientation and a third vertical.

I use one for email and tickets, one for general browsing and remote administration, and the vertical one split horizontally with Teams on top and my terminal client/file browser on the bottom.

Good. Hopefully the sea reclaims their stupid clubhouses too.

Nintendo brass = scumbags. Trash corpo who hates its customers except for milking their money.

It is morally good to pirate all Nintendo products, crack all their hardware, and disparage all their advertising.

Agreed.

Yeah, watched a few vids with this guy…not interested. He doesn’t believe in FOSS, he talks about Linux, MacOS, and Windows all being dumpster fires, but his solution is to build his own OS from scratch, using Latin…and run it on a Chinese RISC-V board that he is charging people $200 and doesn’t open source the hardware or software.

Has hardcore TempleOS vibes, the difference is that this guy seems to take himself and his idea way too seriously. And his defense of why he thinks all modern mainstream OSes are doomed is…nothing. He doesn’t give any. He literally says in his interview that, “it should be obvious, if you can’t see it, you’re just blind I guess.” Slight paraphrase, but you get the gist. He backs that statement up by talking about how Discord screen share crashes a bunch on his Linux distro.

Joined his Discord, saw a several people talking about how great Latin is and had a bunch of weird Roman empire theming, idk, just not great vibes.

Not sure if it’s in fdroid by default, but you can get it directly from the github repo through Obtainium.

@Lettuceeatlettuce@lemmy.ml avatar

Yeah I know, just listing options.

Lettuceeatlettuce,
@Lettuceeatlettuce@lemmy.ml avatar

For the latest version from 1.0 going to 1.2, yes. They have a note about it. You need to uninstall 1.0 and reinstall 1.2 from Obtainium.

Just a quirk for this version only apparently.

Make sure to back up your configuration before uninstalling if you want to keep your settings.

No prob, and yeah I agree.

No prob! I’ve been really liking it so far.
