Reddit: Linux redditors, did you ever have to cheat?

Sunday 20th of August 2017 01:18:39 PM

Did you, as a daily Linux user, ever have to go back to Windows/macOS? What was the reason (program, issue, etc)? What steps do you think will make it a non-issue in the future?

I got curious because I had to temporarily switch to Windows today, because of some program that wanted Internet Explorer (shudder) and ActiveX (nooooooo), it was only for fifteen minutes but I hated every second. I wanted to know similar experiences while being on the Linux platform.

Reddit: Hands On With Manokwari, a GNOME Desktop Shell Built Using HTML5

Sunday 20th of August 2017 11:37:20 AM

Manokwari is desktop shell built for GNOME 3 using GTK+ and HTML5 and is an evolution of an earlier project called blankon-panel. It looks like a cross between the Deepin UI and Budgie desktop.

I tried it and it does work okay but i think HTMl5 isn't the best choice. I like that it does things differently to other desktops right now so i can give it credit for that.

Reddit: Weird ping, help! (Rocket League)

Sunday 20th of August 2017 11:03:46 AM

Hey guys! I have this strange issue with my ping while playing Rocket League - it fluctuates wildly between around 30-40 (awesome) to anything as high as 988 (it keeps settling on this number specifically, does it have any significance?)
It only seems to be happening on Rocket League, and appears to be much worse when playing 3v3 than it is in doubles, although I haven't tested this particularly scientifically. Anyone have the same issue? Any ideas on potential solutions? I'm aware there are a bunch of factors beyond my control, but anything I could do to make it any better would be amazing.
