    Tip of the Week

    If you want to give Snaps a try but are not on an Ubuntu based distro…don’t fret. Despite Snaps being created by Canonical…they can be used on most distros.



    As an example:



    Fedora just type: sudo dnf install snapd - [link]
    With Arch Snap is available in the AUR - [link]
    How to install in openSUSE - [link]
    other distros - [link]

    You may need to enable them with systemctl command post install using:



    sudo systemctl enable --now snapd.socket

    Tip of the Week

    apropos -s 1 “” | shuf -n 1


    Full Message:



    "Hello everyone! love the show. Been a Linux user for a little bit now and I get lots of tips and tricks from you guys. I wanted to share a trick I recently started using to learn commands/tools/stuff. There are so many commands and functions that I would feel overwhelmed learning about them. I came across the apropos command using the -s 1 “” when using that options you will see tons of output and their definitions. This is where your anxiety starts. BUT if you pipe that into the shuf command followed by -n 1 it will output one random command with the brief definition. The full command would be apropos -s 1 “” | shuf -n 1 I then put this in my bashrc start up so when I log into the system it will output one of those random commands. I will then take that one output and make it my mission to know everything I can about it by the end of the day. (if its something I already know, I will run the command until I see something new) Hope someone finds this helpful. Keep marching!"

Love DLN

I like listening to the DLN crew and all their various podcasts. I regularly pick up new things to try. They talk Linux and hardware, no politics.

Keep up all the great Linux coverage!

I enjoy their linux talk, but…

I do enjoy the group’s linux talk, but…

As a neurodivergent person with severe misophonia, the sort of mousey (sorry—only adjective I could think of) laugh of the female cohost makes the show unlistenable to me. It is absolutely eardrum piercing when wearing headphones. If that is a genuine laugh, I get it. I have a goofy laugh too, but I honestly don’t know how the editors of the podcast don’t jump out of whatever windows are available to them. It truly is a grating sound. Maybe my neurodivergent ears and brain just disagree with it. Idk. But it makes the show unlistenable for me.

My new favorite

Been using Linux for a while now. Work in the Windows world but live on my Linux computer at home. These guys are great to listen to. Very knowledgeable. Thanks for all the hard work. You make it sound easy.
