    Borked network, likely due to Samba

    The plot thickens... I restored a backup of my /etc folder from several months ago; the network functions fine now. Time for some real debugging of what needs restored and what can be kept in its present state.

    Borked network, likely due to Samba

    OK! Here come the promised gory details: I've given up on correctly connecting Samba for now; I'd rather have my internet back. I have tried to reset all my settings to the original setttings (meaning the ones that worked before). However, restoring both /etc/samba and /etc/NetworkManager from...

    Borked network, likely due to Samba

    The other day I was messing around with Samba settings in YaST on my work PC trying to get logged into our Windows network. In the process, I managed to bork my network settings so that Plasma's network widget shows a connection without any internet access. VirtualBox VMs can access the 'net...

    Disallow an app to run on WSL

    Also, if your app is free software, it's only a matter of time until somebody decides to port it to WSL (in other words, decides to remove the WSL restrictions from your code).

    Hmm... Maybe this would be better in off topic? @wizardfromoz @KGIII

    Crowdstrike on Linux

    I can confirm that it works, since I have it on my work PC (openSUSE Tumbleweed). (Yes, I realize that this is an older thread, but thought I'd add my $0.02 since this thread was recently active.)

    We have kernel devs? Nice! (I'm not a kernel dev myself, but it's great to see people interested in doing that sort of stuff. They can take care of the kernel, I'll do the GUI apps.)

    Can't fool me with that one! Neofetch is quite configurable, isn't it?

    A Neat GitHub Easter Egg.

    It *is* VSCode. Since it's written in Electron, VSCode can be easily ported to browser use, and in fact is in use in various locations: for example, go to https://github1s.com/KGIII/uMatrix. I don't think that this is exactly an easter egg, either: it's a serious productivity feature (but the...

    Automation like window on Linux

    Of course, I suppose you could always write some sort of abstraction layer so you could keep the Win32 calls but have them redirect to Qt or WxWidgets. That is not recommended, however.

    Automation like window on Linux

    You're not going to get those exact functions unless you program for Windows using WINE. Otherwise, you should just pick a different toolkit for your GUI programming like Qt.

    Post a screenshot of your Desktop

    Somebody should sell those stickers, made out of the same material that the old "Windows XP" and such stickers were made out of, for Linux users to put on their PCs. Maybe they should even sell a version of my avatar...

    Using package managers for privilege escalation - an interesting read.

    Looks like an interesting read.

    Using package managers for privilege escalation - an interesting read.

    Ooh, that's not good. That is why you leave permissions set to require sudo authentication for everything except for maybe a few special cases.

    The translated post, according to DeepL, is as follows: Telegram runs on other OSes than just Linux, so while we'd be glad if you wanted to try Linux, you don't need to install it just to use Telegram. Hope this helps.
