What application have you recently discovered?

I just recently found altserver shell script. If you are a weirdo like me who likes and uses Linux on the computer side yet prefers iPhones to android phones, and you like to side load an app or 2(up to 10 at a time I believe) then up until recently you were relegated to using iOS and windows to resign your apps with altserver. Well now someone released some Linux versions and this shell script one is the one that works best for me.

Do you have to “jailbreak” your iPhone to sideload apps?

No not if you use the AltStore and alt server. The downside of that is they apps are only signed for 7 days that’s where altserver comes in as long as you are on your home Wi-Fi and your server is running it will resign the apps once a day.

I just discovered https://github.com/sharkdp/fd

A nice alternative to find.


Not sure if it counts but I recently discovered that we could install COSMIC into Endeavour’s GNOME…changed the game for me, made GNOME from a pain to something actually usable for my workflow. Before that I was flipping between KDE and XFCE and wasn’t 100% satisfied with either one.

So I’ve been trying to figure out the best option for Google Drive sync. I had a little experience with rclone since my HoloISO-based AYANEO needed something that would run without a DE for obvious reasons. I also had an issue with a work thing where rsync wasn’t doing the job because it was a slow WAN link and a lot of small files (and rscync was single-threading its way through them), and I just realized rclone could do that too. It’s an incredibly powerful tool, and it just saved my butt. For people who like GUIs rclone has a broser GUI, and there’s also a web GUI if you want it, but it goes along with the whole terminal-centric approach really well. ANd it’s not even difficult to set up, though some of the more advanced stuff can be time consuming. But if you want to do a simple mount of a cloud file system (not just Google Drive, but Mega, 1Filchier, OneDrive, lots of options) the rclone-browser is plenty.

Frankly I’m not sure I’ll mess with rsync anymore unless I’m dealing with large files that can benefit from only syncing deltas.

You can? I tried to do this months ago with no success, but that would be cool because I like cosmic a lot i just don’t care for debian/ubuntu based distros.

Oops wrong reply entry. :slight_smile: Clearly I need more caffiene in the morning. But yeah, the cosmic extensions, you really have to do CTRL-ALT-F2 and do their instructions from a terminal console, not just a terminal application session. Otherwise it trips over the GNOME stuff that’s already running and can’t be overwritten.

Hmm…I am not sure I understand how you are using the cosmic enhancements to replace rsync… :wink:
