>>542 tryed it, its pretty bad tbh
What's wrong with https://www.openshot.org/ ? always search for "open source ____" for free simple programs without adware.
Hard of this, but I don't know how good or bad it is: https://github.com/olive-editor/olive

When you HAVE to use Social Media Comrade 03/16/2020 (Mon) 04:05:25 No. 494 [Reply] [Last]
Sometimes you just NEED to use a certain social media site for something considering how most-all activity on the internet now goes through about 12 or so sites. I hate these social media sites, and you probably do to, but their ubiquity among the public means that sometimes you just need to use them for whatever reason. So, how can you use a social media site whilst maintaining some security? Obviously you can make a fake account, but what is the best way to do that? What resources can we use to do this? Thanks in advance.
I'm probably just an extreme introvert, but I never felt the need to use facebook, all I ever used it for was playing some of these browser games back when I was 12. but that's really only talking about facebook, I still use youtube to listen to music and use wattsapp to communicate with some people and there's probably not much of a difference there in terms of security and privacy.
>Sometimes you just NEED 'no'
>>504 I mean in our case if there is a lefty group or whatever that unfortunately still uses FB or whatever.
Many of these have become unbelievably invasive. Just as one example, you basically have to get yourself a burner cell phone just to make a Google account these days, because eventually they lock you out of your account unless you respond to a text message for two-factor authentication (re: identity triangulation). An option I have heard might be a possibility but still haven't tested out is to use JMP/Jabber with XMPP to simulate a phone for text messaging.

>>494 Use alternative front-ends which reduce the amount of direct data the adtech companies get. Unfortunately they are read-only. If you need an actual account to interact with others >>513 is on the mark about how ridiculous it gets. Twitter - https://github.com/zedeus/nitter/wiki/Instances Youtube - https://github.com/omarroth/invidious/wiki/Invidious-Instances Instagram - https://github.com/cloudrac3r/bibliogram/wiki/Instances Try to use an instance that's different from the main one. (e.g. don't use nitter.net right now, it's being bombarded by Japanese people, and invidio.us gets its scrapers blocked somewhat frequently by Google).

Hey so I installed mint on a laptop I got from Walmart after my old one exploded. (literally, buss error) So when I was installing I decided to wipe everything off the laptop in favor of an encrypted partition, well, after I rebooted I noticed something: I still have a working windows partition located on /Dev/sdb1 && yes, that is the actual file name it's located on. So what gives? Why the fuck do I still have a version of Windows installed and can I get the d of it with out breaking my computer?? Help /tech/

hello fellow comrades, i am trying to make a simple Firefox extenion, however i'm not familiar with XUL nor javascript. my idea was to creat a simple "auto next" for Omegle video. the pseudo cold would be if omegle video mode on check strager's IP if stranger"s IP already seen = next. if stranger's IP not seen yet = do nothing

Well, lads, we made it. Congrats. After the hard won victory of having tech placed back on the top bar I realized something though. We don't have any banners! In lieu of this, I am creating a thread for the creation of banners && Graphics manipulation in general. This thread, obviously, will revolve around general gimp/photoshop skills, memes and, of course, banners, what-have you. Enjoy!

>>151 Can you give soms RSS client recommendations and instructions on how to use it with YouTube and YouTube downloader.
>>145 Try this site, it's a good frontend that can use a different player to download videos in full like old YT rather than streaming it piece-by-piece: https://www.invidio.us
By the way, does anyone know a good way of uploading videos to YT without making a Google account? You can use a dummy email + phone number to make a throaway account, I guess.
>>158 For the last couple months I've been trying to figure out how to make a Google account without a phone number and it's been utterly hopeless. Those fuckers really want you to catalog you in their mass surveillance network.
>>159 It's just to filter spam, they really don't need your number, since they already own your phone.

Can anyone give me a good GPU/CPU review site that doesn't do sponsored content? Like 75% of all articles about RTX i have found have been sponsored by Nvidia and it sucks.

are there any PCs that use an ARM chip?
There are desktop computers with Arm CPUs but they are not aimed at regular users. For example, here is this beast: https://store.avantek.co.uk/avantek-thunderx2-arm-workstation-thunderx2station.html

There are laptops with Arm chips now that run Windows on Arm, but last time I heard about it they couldn't get GNU/Linux on it.

As far as I know, Arm GPUs don't have Free drivers. Do you happen to know about something like that?
>There are desktop computers with Arm CPUs but they are not aimed at regular users.
If you want a arm desktop you should just get a SBC: https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/single-board-computers

>There are laptops with Arm chips now that run Windows on Arm, but last time I heard about it they couldn't get GNU/Linux on it.
This is incorrect, there are many arm laptops that ship with GNU/Linux natively, many Chromebooks are examples of this, they also ship with coreboot by default making them more free than just about anything else. The ASUS C201 being one that can be librebooted, but requires a external wireless adapter and has a low quality keyboard.

>As far as I know, Arm GPUs don't have Free drivers. Do you happen to know about something like that?
At minimum there are many Mali, Adreno, Videocore, and Vivante GPUs with open source drivers available. There are plenty of options.

If you've got a excess of capital and you're worried about performance you could also get a Raptor system with are based off IBM Power: https://www.raptorcs.com/content/BK1B02/intro.html
I just noticed my FSF link there wasn't to actual SBCs just to SOCs. Just to keep the list reasonable and useful I'll list all those computers with open source hardware, which have CPU/GPU combinations which not only are open source but which don't have any GPL violations, and are capable of running a full desktop system.
All the Cubieboards except for 4 and 5: http://cubieboard.org/model/
https://www.raptorcs.com/content/BK1B02/intro.html (this actually goes further than the others here to have a entirely opensource extremely fast CPU)
>>2544 Look at the steam hardware survey and go for the most commonly used hardware , this way you will get a system with reasonably good compatibility for most games since game developers use this data when they decide what hardware they should support so that they can have the broadest audience. And if a load of people are using a particular CPU or GPU then that means it is probably not complete rubbish. https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam

The white glass is broken and the screen has moisture, is the whole thing destroyed? Otherwise perfectly functional (!). Client is a friend, apparently this happened before he could replace his damaged case. It's a gift so he can't afford to service it. I feel like the parts for this will either be chinkshit or more expensive than a decent Android with a free, open operating system for once. Any advice would be huge.

It looks like to me you are gonna need a whole new screen ribbon cables and all. Shouldn't be much like you said.

Bodhi vs Lubuntu? Comrade 02/01/2020 (Sat) 06:20:29 No. 267 [Reply] [Last]
I'm planning on switching from lubuntu to bodhi, however I need to know whether or not bodhi would work just as well as lubuntu for my system Specs: >CPU: Intel Atom CPU Z520 @ 1.333GHz >GPU: Poulsbo >RAM: 2gb It's a really shit acer netbook
2 posts omitted.
I only ever used Lubuntu for old computers and it works quite well (don't expect to be able to watch video on YouTube at more than 480p though). I've heard nice thing about Bhodi but never tried it.
>>270 >(don't expect to be able to watch video on YouTube at more than 480p though) That'd still be an issue of the hardware tho and not the OS (I've used Lubuntu playing HD clips fine on my laptops with 4GB of RAM).
>>270 I have shitty laptop too but minimal devuan with dwm helps alot
>>271 Yes I know, I was just saying that while Lubuntu can give an 10 years+ computer a new life, it can't do much about resource intensive websites like YouTube (there's always the great program YouTube-dl for that).
>>268 Because I'm buddhist
