Show HEIC thumbnails in Gnome Files
This is all that is needed to get Apple HEIC image thumbnails in the Gnome file manager. I am currently running Ubuntu 23.04 but this should be similar in most distros using their package managers. It’s so easy a caveman could do it… sudo apt update sudo apt install libheif1 heif-thumbnailer heif-gdk-pixbuf That’s it. You […]

You never know when something trivial can spark inspiration. Anyway, if you think it’s funny and want the vector to […]
Creating a Natron/KDEnlive space animation.
Had some downtime and wanted to give Natron a try. It has always ran like shit on the Linux distributions I run so I don’t think I’d use it for big projects but for small clips, like maybe subscribe buttons, it works great. I just hope someone picks up the development again, because I like […]
