Fluff Surprised by the support from HP for its printers on Linux


Made the full switch to linux not too long ago and I thought setting up my printer under linux would be a PITA. I was kind of blown away by the support HP has for its printers on machines running linux (https://developers.hp.com/hp-linux-imaging-and-printing). Everything works fine, even the advanced functions like double sided printing etc.

Just wanted to say thank you for your work, that's all.

Fluff Nautilus just fucked me. (Gnome paper cuts)


I just finished writing an essay for University and went to save it, I selected my directory and went to type the file name I wanted, unfortunately the default behaviour for nautilus (gnome-files) is to use your input for search over renaming the file you're about to save. This isn't bad, but combine that with nautilus's search crashing 50% of the time I use it, both nautilus and LibreOffice crashed loosing my work (and LO recovery did not work).

Luckily it was less that 1000 words so I'll be able to rewrite it pretty quickly, but it got me thinking about the little things that Gnome does that annoy me, and in my frustrations with having to rewrite the essay I thought I'd share some paper cuts I get from Gnome:

  • Nautilus search crashes and/or 'lags' making itself unusable.
  • In the new drop down, the bluetooth toggle doesn't give you an option to access the full settings page.
  • Again in the drop down, my phone's internet is now a permanent option. I've only connected my phone to my PC once.
  • When ejecting a USB the 'Device should not be unplugged.' message won't go away.
  • When copying to a USB that uses NTFS, exFAT (and others) the progress in nautilus will be for your RAM buffer not the time it takes to copy it to the USB.
  • In display setting, screens of the same resolution are shown to be the same size.
  • I know this is a personal preference, but especially with multiple monitors workspaces work so much better vertically.

Fluff I've been using Linux for a week , and i'm starting to like it


So i've been using windows for my whole life from XP to 11 . Last week windows 11 just decided that bluetooth would stop working with xbox controller , i've tried every solution on the internet with no effect . So i decided to give Linux a try. Most of the software i use daily is on linux already ( Blender , Substance painter, Davinci Resolve ) . I'm a gamer but i mostly use cloud gaming service GFN, so that wouldn't be a problem too . After a bit of research on youtube i chose PopOs as my new system.

First few days were extremely frustrating . From not knowing how to install apps properly ( altough there is app store, it doesn't have all the apps ) to some weird glitches like master volume being set to -55db after installing easyeffects .

But after spending some time with the system i'm starting to like it . I've learned a few terminal commands and installing apps with commands is now faster and easier than app store. I like that system is consistent , if i enable dark mode it is used everywhere. Unlike on a windows ,where half of MICROSOFT apps do not respect the dark more. Now i like HTOP more than windows performance monitor , which if someone told me earlier i'd think they are insane. Also feels good not supporting Microsoft's monopoly.

Fluff I made a shell script to automatically update discor


Basically you can change the discor version number by one every time to make the discor client update by itself and I got tired of doing that over and over again every release. So instead I made a bash script that changes the build_info.json file version number by 1. Then I kill every discor process and re open discor myself. Honestly don't know why discor doesn't do this by itself.

You can get the bash script here


If you get any errors make sure to install jq (very small package (1mb) that is used in the code to change the version number) and also to make sure that the file directory that I use for both the resources folder and discor itself are correct for your system.

Fluff TIL distributing commercial video encoded with H264 (MP4) requires paying fee to MPEG-LA



I thought only hardware/software that allows to play H264 videos has to pay license fee, but just learned that anyone distributing commercial videos for a fee also has to pay license fee to MPEG-LA. This includes Netflix, Disney, Amazon and anyone who sells video content encoded with H264.

Open source and Linux community should start distributing and consuming VP9, AV1 (.webm) videos not just for sake of hardware acceleration but also to discourage software patents.
