Dear free and open source community,
I want you to recommend projects that welcome people that never contributed to FOSS before. I am planning to do a workshop this year to encourage people to make their first contributions. What I need:
- A page explaining how they could contribute.
- General recommendations and documentation.
- Where they can contact people involved in such projects in case they have questions.
KDE Connect, a project to communicate across all your devices on Linux desktop, gets Bluetooth support!
For example, with KDE Connect you can receive your phone notifications on your desktop computer, control music playing on your desktop from your phone, or use your phone as a remote control for your desktop.
So I thought my timeline just wasn't working right. It turns out quite a few of the people I follow essentially disappeared from #Mastodon. Maybe the initial novelty wore off for them. #Diaspora on the other hand got a bit of a boost from the whole #DeleteFacebook thing. I like both for different reasons...I do need to post more often though.
Really liking what I'm seeing with #Kubuntu 18.04 Beta 2. I tried the minimal install option on an old 32bit laptop. With the exception of some lag in Discover, the performance is pretty good. I'm looking forward to this running this on my newer systems. LTS Plasma + LTS Qt + LTS Ubuntu = ❤️
I'm looking to put together a local #community program for (primarily) non-technical people. Things like teaching people how to use #opensource software at educational events, having #Linux installation parties, accepting old hardware to repurpose and donate, etc. Does anyone with experience doing such things have any advice on getting started?
Switching my wife's computer over to KDE Neon today. She had been having problems with her Manjaro Mate installaton. (Not saying it's the distro's fault; could be her hardware not playing nicely.)
Flare 1.0 has finally been released!
Flare is an OPEN SOURCE, 2D action role playing game licensed under the GPL3 license.
Its game play can be likened to the games like the Diablo or Torchlight series.
Have fun with truly free gaming on this one.

The #snow in NW Pennsylvania is quite beautiful this morning. Seemed a shame to ruin the peaceful silence by starting my car.
