Looking for something similar to an older game or maybe an updated engine for a game you own?

If you are like me you might like to play all those older games from your youth. My gaming adventures span the eighties and nineties, with a few from the early two thousands. Thanks to GOG and Lutris I own all my old RPG favorites and play them easily on Linux. Thanks to all those […]

Garuda KDE Dr4g0nized is beautiful!

I was running Manjaro on my son’s older Asus ROG and he complained about game performance so it has been sitting. I was wanting to check out Garuda so I installed it today on his Asus. I only had a few hiccups once installed and was rather forced to install the Dr460ized version – I […]

Alternative Manjaro Cat Wallpaper

I really liked the Manjaro cat wallpaper included in the KDE flavor (the original artist is muser on https://forum.manjaro.org/) but wanted it spiced up so I made my own. Here are the files I created to make the wallpaper, includes the Inkscape cat svg and Krita file. To create the background I just used the […]

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 […]

Manjaro\Akonadi Issues with Fixes

Some quick fixes for the latest Manjaro updates and Akonadi db error. If you need back light for System 76 hardware this should help.

Manjaro Linux Rocks

What can I say about Manjaro 19.0 Kyria KDE Edition? It is the absolute best Linux distribution that I have installed to date. Goodbye POP! OS. I am running a 2018 Oryx from System 76 who also makes POP! OS and Manjaro actually works better on their hardware.

Just because Apple says it’s waterproof doesn’t make it so.

My son has the Apple XS iPhone, which was advertised as water resistant. While he was video recording a restoration project the phone accidentally got splashed while washing the object he was restoring. Within a day it began displaying damage as the screen and camera began to behave oddly. I told him to shut it […]

Fetch COVID-19 US state data and upload to site as JSON in Python 3.

During the protests while already being locked down by the virus and curfews, maybe fear that the end was here (nah, we know better), I got bored and made a dashboard to watch the protest action from the safety of home as neither of us can risk the cost of COVID treatment or loss of […]

Too old for protests so I brought them to me.

I was curious if I could get CAMs from around town like I had done years ago for a dashboard I built for work. Well, it’s a hell of a lot easier now than it was! I also used to display the weather and such but a lot of that is pay to play, accept […]

Install Photoshop CS6 on POP!OS 20.04 in PlayOnLinux

I find that Krita and/or The Gimp can pretty much do everything I want but one thing they can’t do is provide some of the excellent plug-ins found for Photoshop. If Krita could get Photoshop plug-in support I would imagine it would take a big chuck of Adobe’s end user market. I really don’t want […]
