Le Puy-en-Velay : les fafs veulent prendre racine

Une librairie « enracinée » a ouvert il y a quelques mois au Puy, qui accueille toutes les mouvances d’extrême droite et autres complotistes. Elle s’inscrit dans une stratégie de l’extrême droite qui cherche à investir des espaces éloignés des grands centres urbains. Nos camarades du Puy ont organisé la riposte :

#Antifascisme #AlternativeLibertaire #Journal #Presse #Média #AL

I started working on session verification for Fractal-next. Still a long way to go, but it's a start.

Finally, to let Phosh know your application supports phones, add this to your desktop entry:

That's it! 😄

In most cases, this boils down to adding:
<display_length compare="ge">360</display_length>

Also add the non-standard PureOS Store-specific hardware support information for some transition period:
<value key="Purism::form_factor">workstation</value>
<value key="Purism::form_factor">mobile</value>

If your application works on GNOME phones like the Librem 5, please add the relevant metadata to your appdata file and to your desktop entry.

It will let Phosh, GNOME Software 41 and PureOS Store 41 know your application works on phones.

Use the new standardized AppStream hardware support information to your appdata:

GNOME Software and PureOS Store will use this to let users of your application know if it works on their hardware.


No idea if that is useful to any of you, but you can enable touch support in Firefox from Flathub with this command:

sudo flatpak override --env=MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1 org.mozilla.firefox

I've been working on Highscore to add a setting to render games in HD! When enabled, 3DS, Dreamcast, GameCube and N64 will be rendered as closely as possible to 1080p!

Oh in case you didn't know, Highscore is the new identity of GNOME Games. 😁

Oh hi, don't pay attention, I'm just building the future version of @gnome Software in Builder on my Librem 5, with the help of my fellow assistants.

If you're interested in GNOME Mobile development, adaptive apps, and the future of the GNOME platform join our virtual Q&A later this week!

We'll have many of the core people behind various pieces of the stack, including @agx, @KekunPlazas, @exalm, @dos, and myself.

I wrote about how Purism helps transforming GNOME since over 3 years, and how it's all just the start!

I’m currently having a really rough time searching for work. I don’t know when I’ll be able to get a proper income, and I only have $150 total.

If anyone can help me out, I would really appreciate it.

And a huge shoutout to @exalm who almost single-handedly developed it, polished it, and brought it to you!
