> The UX team has been carefully designing widgets and applications over the last year. We are now at the point where it is critical for the engineering team to decide upon a GUI toolkit for COSMIC. After much deliberation and experimentation over the last year, the engineering team has decided to use Iced instead of GTK. > > Iced is a native Rust GUI toolkit that's made enough progress lately to become viable for use in COSMIC. Various COSMIC applets have already been written in both GTK and Iced for comparison. The latest development versions of Iced have an API that's very flexible, expressive, and intuitive compared to GTK. It feels very natural in Rust, and anyone familiar with Elm will appreciate its design. The main jumping-off point for COSMIC is this repository, I think: The iced crate is here: Other GUI tookits for Rust can be found here:

Changing the fonts for apps installed using Flatpak

Nix Package Manager Advice
When using the Nix Package Manager on Debian 11, I have seen that it doesn’t automatically create .desktop files for GUI programs. This would have been fine if I was using nix to install one or two programs, but I was looking forward to use it a regular package manager. Does anyone know how to automate the process?

Is there a way to install a package on debian without internet access?
How do I get the package to the computer and how to install with apt?

Lemmy client Lemmur on Linux doesn't find any instances other than
I have installed Lemmur client and tried to add my account at But Lemmur couldn't find that instance, nor any other instance I tried to connect with. What's wrong there? Do the instances run different APIs? If so, that would not be a helpful situation for the lemmy commuity to grow.

Today's Rust and Linux project is up :) I built this plugin so that I could see NetworkManager controls in results that come back from [`pop-launcher`]( I'm using [`onagre`]( to query/display/action those results

Linux Lived, Linux Lives, Linux Will Live
cross-posted from: > Russia is beginning the process of transitioning from Windows to Linux. Most likely as a way to avoid sanctions and to no longer be under the control of a US multinational corporation.

audio issues with Linux
So I got a new CPU, an AMD, so I bought a new mother and so on and installef latst Zorin OS on my SDD, everything works fine but I hear distorted sound and they layer on top of each other, like, the same sound starts repeating and causing more distortion. I tried doing some stuff with Alsamixer but to no avail, whst to do?

Looking for a job where I can use Linux - warehouse preferred.
I've a bit of retail, car sales, and warehouse experience and am looking for a job where I can use Linux and have an excuse to improve my skills in Linux and tech. I use Debian. I love efficiency, organization, and making systems faster, easier for employees and customers. I am open to any tips you all can give me. I have no certifications and am not sure that I am willing to get one at this point. If I had a job I loved and they loved me back, I might be willing to get a certification in order to advance. I am hoping the little bit of Linux and tech that I know will be what gets me a job where I live now.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
