Oh yeah I’m definitely going with KDE, I’m very much not a gnome person, happy to hear it’s been a good experience!


Planning to distrohop to Fedora soon, any tips and/or advice?

I’ve been using endeavouros for a while now, but want to switch to a point release because I’m not in a position to do massive updates every few days anymore…

EndeavourOS with KDE Plasma which has been treating me well but in the future I want to try out Fedora since recently everyone has been racing about it and do a vanilla arch install so I can complete my transition to full blown neckbeard


Also Linus “Tech Tips” ““Sebastian”” Media Group, I just have a soft spot for him.




not embracing computer-assisted economic planning. had they imported the cybersyn team from Chile after the coup and allowed them to revive the experiment, it could have made great advances. this was a few years after the liberal economic reforms of course, so I don’t think the Soviet leadership was all too interested…


How to use touchpad gestures in wayland session?

I’ve tried installing libinput-gestures-qt, set gestures to plasma default, set the daemon to autostart and restarted the system and three finger swipes do absolutely nothing. Is there something I’m doing wrong?..

Our Flag Means Death

That’s it, that’s the post…





Just finished Tomb Raider 2013 after getting it for dirt cheap on humble, I enjoyed it even playing at 540p which was the only way my laptop could run it. Still playing hollow knight which is kicking my ass but I’m nonetheless enjoying.


I’m not French but he looks to me like the standard “left populist” European politician with all that entails(except very critical of NATO, so that’s good), certainly better than Macron or Le Pen though



I have agreed with Macron far more times than is healthy over this past week, please make it stop


In fact, Rosa Luxemburg made another great point here. Marxism should be treated as a living thing, at its best when it is interacting with the world, but all of the meaningful interactions of the past forty years have been Maoist actions. Marxism-Leninism and the respective, remaining ‘Marxist-Leninist’ organizations and parties have been caught-on-the-back foot, or docile, or lacking in direction, with few consequential actions taken, at best, and useless, irrelevant, if not outright misguided or wrong in many parts of the world at worst.

Marxism-Leninsm-Maoism has yet to produce a successful revolution, unless you are counting Nepal which I know you hate to talk about so let’s discard it. How can you look at what Marxist-Leninist countries have done over the past fifty years and say that Marxism-Leninism has not advanced? It has advanced greatly, but you just dismiss these advances as “revisionism”.


The evidence for the Marxist-Leninist position becoming increasingly correct is a few reddit posts and one excellent Roderic Day article. Lol. A lot of my pro-China comrades hate Duterte and support Maoist revolutions in India and the Philippines, as do I, not even Joma hates China as much as online Maoists do.

This chasing of ideological purity and discarding real-world information is undialectical.




That’s why peertube is a much better solution imo. You can have a commie instance and keep all the fascists and liberals (but I repeat myself) from posting videos on there


Fuck the blockchain, peertube is a much better option, there’s already a breadtube instance I don’t know how Marxist friendly they are tho


I might watch (some of) it, just to check it out…

definitely pirating it tho, Netflix’s recommendation algorithm is dogshit and if it thinks I like this kind of stuff I am screwed



What do communists mean when they say "things of themselves" and "things for themselves"?

I came across this while reading Mao’s On Practice today: he talks about how at the beginning of the capitalist period the proletariat was a “class of itself” but in the later period of organised resistance against capitalism it became a “class for itself”. This rang a vague bell for me, I think I…







I'm looking for an office suite for my phone

I would prefer it to be open source, but at this point that’s not a necessity. I need an app that can open word documents, powerpoint presentations and excel spreadsheets (maybe PDFs as well but I could always get a separate app). So far I’ve tried Openoffice & Libreoffice Document reader from F-dro…
