What application have you recently discovered?

if u use kde, it is built into the start menu, you just type it out and it works

My DE is Xfce, but I use Ulauncher, which has extensions for unit and currency conversion.

Hardinfo was updated to hardinfo2 available in AUR

O wow, this seems to be a comprehensive alternative to hardinfo64 (which is windows only) - great find, thanks for sharing!

You’re welcome! I hadn’t even remembered that I already had installed hardinfo. It was displayed as a missing package during the update this morning. So i found hardinfo2. I think this is great.

I didn’t know this existed. Very nice. Comprehensive. I’ll have to give it a go. Thanks for sharing!

I haven’t figured that out yet either

A lot of devices expose themselves to the system with an ID of some sort. Those look like the way you update the databases that relate the codes to the device names so the tool can show you the names.

MAC addresses on network hardware are a great example of this, where the first two strings are the manufacturer etc, and then device type and model etc. Fascinating if you’re into it!

This is only a few months old, but superfile looks like my kind of terminal file manager. I like what ranger can do and even how it looks, but superfile looks even more like what I’d want in a terminal file manager.

Website: https://superfile.netlify.app/list/theme-list/
AUR: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages?O=0&K=superfile

I will test it in my Void and Artix VMs.

Not a new app, just a new discovery within an old app. Found it on the app’s GitHub. Talking about yay. Some nice info:

Might just make my terminal launch with this info.

Just installed pikaur and paru to test if they both have this option. Paru does, but if Pikaur has it, it’s not the exact same command.

That being said, Yay and Paru report different values for AUR/Foreign packages. Maybe it’s just a settings thing, though. Maybe Paru doesn’t count Yay and Pikaur, or other pacman wrappers.

Also, pacman -Qm shows neither Yay nor Paru, but does show Pikaur.

Subtitle Composer

Full featured application to create and modify video subtitle files (.srt). Top notch.

If you are using EOS, yay and paru are in the repos so they won’t show up as foreign.

That is because AUR packages and foreign packages are different things.

Two of your packages, archcraft-openbox-premium and windscribe, are not in AUR or the repos. So they are “foreign” but not “AUR”.

Oh… that makes sense. Thanks.
