I can see that 😆 But those aren’t really usernames in my opinion 😕

What would happen if I use tor browser while using archtorify? I find it helpful to be able to change the tor circuit with a button. I wish there was something like that in firefox when using torify.

I think I’ll modify archtorify to change the circuit every so often. Perhaps I can check for internet speed and choose different circuits until it’s above a given speed.

So it depends on whether each application allows setting Socks 5? Is there a list somewhere to check a list of the software that allow that configuration? I would need at least alacritty, element and a couple others. And how could I block the rest of the connections that don’t go through Socks 5?

How do I configure tor system-wide on linux?
So instead of using only tor when using tor browser, I can use tor while using firefox, the command line, etc. I use Manjaro Cinnamon. I know I'll have to be careful with emails and some other applications that aren't encrypted.

It’s probably worth the read, but it’s a bit long. Maybe you could use a TTS, upload the audio file to funkwhale and link it in the article so we can listen to it.

Random username generator?
I usually go to reddit and copy the first username that I see. Is there a quicker way to get a username like *noun_adjective_number*?

How do you easily share contact information between Android and linux?
That is the last thing left for me to do before finally deleting the gmail account.

Why the screen to body ratio of smartphone displays has improved faster than other monitors?
While TVs, laptops and PC monitors still have bezels for the most part, smartphones have accomplished a much superior screen to body ratio. Why is that?

Why is IRC still used?
You can't even see the history in many channels.

The inherently wrong thing about algorithms is that since they are made to maximize profits by maximizing engagement, they produce addiction. I don’t see anything wrong with an opt-in option for algorithms as long as there is a warning about the fact that it may produce addiction. The problem is that for an algorithm to work more data needs to be gathered. And since many FOSS software is privacy focused they don’t tend to gather much data.

Don’t know if this goes here or in /AskLemmy, but just wanted to know the best FOSS social networks, why are there so good? What would be the propietary equivalent?

FOSS social networks don’t sell your data or show you adds. Have you heard of alternativeto.net? You can see the different open source alternatives to any software you want in there

I think mozilla TTS is the best. But this questions should have been asked in Open Source.

I’ve installed this one and it feels much better.

Is there an Android keyboard with fuzzy word finding?
I've replaced all my apps for FOSS alternatives, but the keyboard I have now seems very difficult to write in compared to what I used to have. It just doesn't recommend me appropriate enough words to have to write less. I want something that I can add different languages and it has a fuzzy finder to let me select words by typing only a few characters. Is there something like that?

I’ve never used audacity in real time, isn’t it to edit audio files?

I’ve clarified in the question that I’m looking for something in real time.

Is there any software to filter high pitched sounds?
Something that lets me select a frequency above which all sounds would be filtered in real time? I don't know if a software can separate the high pitched sounds from the rest of the sounds. If it was possible that would be perfect. If not just removing all sounds when any sound goes above the threshold.

In Arch Linux, how do I install a list of packages from a file with an AUR helper?
In Arch Linux I want to get a list of the packages installed and install all packages from a file. But I want to include packages from the AUR. With pacman I can get the [list of installed packages](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Pacman/Tips_and_tricks#List_of_installed_packages): ``` $ pacman -Qqe > pkglist.txt ``` And [install packages from a list](https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Pacman/Tips_and_tricks#Install_packages_from_a_list): ``` # pacman -S --needed - < pkglist.txt `` `

I have to substitute zplug, what do you recommend?
zplug is giving me errors an since it is no longer maintained I may not be able to fix them. So if I were to change my plugin manager which one would you recommend?

Why is bash still used for the Unix shell?
Why aren't new terminals that use another language? It seems so antiquated getting errors for not writing the functions in the correct order among other things.


pop doesn’t support folders, just an inbox. it’s old and basic

mutt-wizard is quick and very clever and will probably give you a working config, but it can contain a lot of detail that you might not need or understand

oh, local folders. if you try to save to them, I think they should be created

Should I write my real name and email address in a GnuPG key?
I'm going through the trouble of changing all the accounts I've used for [AnonAddy](https://app.anonaddy.com/) aliases, to not give my private account to anyone. So when creating this GPG key, I should just give it an AnonAddy alias right? Something like `public-CYwb8@user.anonaddy.com`. ``` GnuPG needs to construct a user ID to identify your key. Real name: Email address: Comment: ```

How do I setup Neomutt with POP3 and an XDG path?
Is this configuration what I'm looking for? ``` set pop_host = pops://username@mail.server.com:xxxx set mbox_type=Maildir set folder = "$XDG_CACHE_HOME"/mail # default mailbox location set spoolfile = +/ # unread or inbox set mbox = +read set record = +sent set postponed = +drafts set include # a copy of the message you are replying ``` Are those folders created automatically or do they need to exist? And what happens if I use this? ``` set pop_authenticators = "digest-md5" ``` Inspired by [ask1234560/dotfiles_bspwm](https://github.com/ask1234560/dotfiles_bspwm), [rgaiacs/dotfiles](https://github.com/rgaiacs/dotfiles/blob/master/.muttrc.pop3), [man page](https://neomutt.org/man/neomuttrc). I've just learned about [Mutt Wizard](https://yewtu.be/watch?v=mPiQuWbF57M). Should I use that?

It looks wrong that there are many answers to a non existing comment.

What to do with deleted answers?
Someone deleted a popular [answer to a post](https://lemmy.ml/post/161048/comment/114179) and now I don't have a way to make it look right. What should I do in such cases?

How can I use Librera PRO to listen to a website using TTS?
Before, I used *@Voice Aloud Reader* to read websites, but I'm trying to use only FOSS software now. Is there a way I could turn an [online documentation](https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/index.html) into an ebook to listen with *Librera PRO*? Can *Librera PRO* be used to read websites?

Ok thanks. I had seen three issues talking about it so I thought they had already done it.

Is there a FOSS Android app to record audio?
I've tried *Voice Recorder* from F-droid, but for some reason it isn't working. I've recently changed the operating system from MIUI 12 to Lineage OS, so I don't know if FOSS software may have issues recording audio.

This seems helpful but after following it I still don’t see any italics. Perhaps I haven’t configured it properly in neovim.

What are the most popular LSPs for Neovim?
I've installed a few LSPs. I want to install all the popular ones to do it once and forget about it. So which ones do you have installed? ``` install_neovim_lsp() { sudo npm i -g cssmodules-language-server vscode-langservers-extracted sql-language-server typescript typescript-language-server bash-language-server pip install pyright } ```

So it’s already a feature for recent comment sorting? I haven’t seen a way to bump.

I fracking hate discord. People use it for everything now, not just gaming, for the convenience of an easy to use cross-platform application. Almost every message board on the internet has been deserted and moved to discord. And it makes it so difficult to find anything useful. Every time I want to find something there I feel as if no matter how much time I spend using the search I’m never going to find it. And when I ask I feel as if the same question has probably been asked hundreds of times before and makes me feel dumb for not being able to find the answer. If you read the messages as they arrive, with just a couple of servers that you follow, your day is gone and you can’t do anything else. Of course it makes it convenient not having to create an account for each website like before, but so does the fediverse. I won’t even go into the privacy concerns I have with so many people feeding their life into discord’s database.
