I am looking for an open source solution similar to this:


I have traveled quite a bit and taken a lot of photos (with gps data). Ideally I would like to use these photos to create a map connecting the different waypoints via roads which I could then use in a slideshow. Bonus points if the map can be animated with panning and zooming effects for different parts of the journey.

I have a large number of photos edited and ready to go and want to then them into an album. Does anyone have any recommendations for any FOSS software that I can use to arrange the images to pages, and add text?

I intend to send the data to a professional printer for printing and binding.

My first thought was Libre Office's Draw, but maybe this community has something more appropriate.

Released back in March of 2018 was the Amarok 2.9 music player for this KDE project. Shipping today is finally Amarok 3.0 as the first major release in six years and now ported to Qt5 and KDE Frameworks 5.

I'm trying to get a new web site up and running with ghost, but I'm wondering if it's really designed for selling products, like the way Gumroad is, for example. I was attracted to ghost because of its built-in mailing list and blogging capabilities (and because it's open source), and I thought adding a "commerce element" for lack of a better term, probably wouldn't be too hard, but now I'm not so sure. Am I trying to get this platform to do something it isn't really designed for?


It's so awesome that I can let my kid paint with Krita and let her enhance the picture with AI live. She wanted to have an AI picture editor on her phone but I didn't like the privacy policy. But Krita AI Diffusion came to the rescue.

After testing it out myself I showed her Krita, the most important tools and how to use layers and before I could say anything she was off to paint a nice landscape. When she was finished I actually got to enable the AI plugin and show her the ropes around that. And after enabling live painting she went ham and added a phoenix and a giant hand.

Hardest thing about it was that she had to describe what she wanted in English. But she's already learning that in school so it shouldn't give her too much trouble in the long run.

Anyways, FOSS rules!

Our results show that women's contributions tend to be accepted more often than men's [when their gender is hidden]. However, when a woman's gender is identifiable, they are rejected more often. Our results suggest that although women on GitHub may be more competent overall, bias against them exists nonetheless.


I was very excited to learn about this project...only to discover it's neither free nor open source. Does anyone know of any true open source and accessible tools for Syllabus sharing/curating/researching?

I used this for years, from version 1.9 all the way to 5.x when I moved onto other software.

EDIT: Here is the full press release.

Is anyone aware of an existing framework or educational tools for delivering in-person FOSS workshops?

The writing is on the wall--I suspect the next Windows OS will be a subscription service. Gather your ISOs while ye may.


Started my first job, it's a helpdesk. It looks that I get tickets and try to help people on the other side, have build some PCs and am at first week.

But after ~3 years of using almost exclusive FOSS, I found out corporate software (especially Windows!) to be so absolutely unbearable.

Having Windows as example, on the surface it is bearable, but as I need to do more advanced stuff, oh GOD!
I needed iperf3 to test LAN speed, traceroute to test why some device is not responding, rsync to copy files... But none of it is installed and installing every single program is super annoying and troublesome. After that I get countless update popups from all sides, ugh.


I'm trying to get tic80 working on RIScv but i ll need to build a custom version cos there are no prebuilts, how do I go about this?

Now that I have your attention...

Proxy Raye is a self-hostable alternative frontend for browsing adult websites without tracking or ads.

Think Invidious for porn.

I have a 1TB harddrive on my desktop computer that isn't doing much of anything, so I'd like to dual-boot something "interesting". Suggestions are greatly appreciated, so let me know what y'all find intriguing/interesting/frustrating/innovative.

The logo is just for attention, but EFF is a great cause that we should all support.

I currently use TinyWall Firewall, it works very well, it's small/portable, no complaints I even donated to the Dev but I would really prefer open source, also it needs to be user friendly like TinyWall so my non-tech family members can/will use it like they do with TinyWall.

Is there such a thing? I wasn't able to find anything in the F-Droid repository.

So there are so many Youtube front-ends for Android like ViMusic/RiMusic, spmp, SimpMusic and a big etc.. They basically extract the music and add a lot of functionality to the app like translating lyrics, downloading/caching songs, local playlists without Google account, radio mode and that kind of thing.

I know of three programs of this type for Linux (or desktop OS in general) and they're Moosync, Nuclear Music Player and Youtube-music.

I love Moosync but I miss the radio mode feature that I use a lot in Android apps, then Nuclear I haven't used for years since I know Moosync and Youtube-music doesn't appeal to me at all because it's just a Youtube music web application with plugins... and it doesn't even have local playlists...

So, does anyone know of any other programs of this kind that actually support radio mode and local playlists?

A lot of the issues reported here, started showing up on my device after each OS update, but VLC didn't push any updates for over a year now... VLC is king, but what went wrong?

Edit: I think I saw a post on Mastodon saying it something to do with Google Play Store policies change, but what about the Fdroid version.. ?
