KDE Plasma 5.21 on openSUSE Tumbleweed | Better Then Ever

Periodically, I like to gush over my operating system and desktop. Since I move back and forth between systems running both of my distributions of choice, Leap and Tumbleweed, I can see how Plasma is advancing as well as see what a static view of it is like over the course of a year or … Continue reading KDE Plasma 5.21 on openSUSE Tumbleweed | Better Then Ever

Fedora 33 | Review from an openSUSE User

Keeping inline with my general theme of being late to the party, I have finally given Fedora 33 a spin. I have previously reviewed Fedora 31 and really enjoyed it very much. In fact, every time I have used Fedora, it has indeed been a great experience. I am again trying out Plasma because I … Continue reading Fedora 33 | Review from an openSUSE User

HP EliteBook 840 G7 running openSUSE Tumbleweed

I was given an incredible gift by my former employer as a parting gift, an HP EliteBook 840 G7.

I have been very happy with my Dell Latitude E6440 and decided my … Continue reading HP EliteBook 840 G7 running openSUSE Tumbleweed

Element | Matrix Chat Client on openSUSE

All the kids have been talking about the wonders of Matrix as the future of decentralized, secure communication. I have known about it, seen bridges being used in the openSUSE discord and Telegram rooms. Most of my experience has not been great, generally there were significant delays. I have used a few clients, Riot.im on … Continue reading Element | Matrix Chat Client on openSUSE

Turn off Monitor using CLI

This is another gift to future me from present me. I made the mistake of not properly writing this down before so I had to search for the answer. The problem is, sometimes, it seems as though Plasma is not shutting off my external screens consistently. I can't say why but I have a suspicion … Continue reading Turn off Monitor using CLI

LG 29″ UltraWide | Monitor Upgrade and Configuration on Linux

I have historically made my hardware decisions based on price, generally I get what I can get for as low or as reasonable as possible.

After seeing some other computer setups, I have really thought that I want to be able to function more … Continue reading LG 29″ UltraWide | Monitor Upgrade and Configuration on Linux
