Re: What are you feeling good about these days?

When I was in my late 20s I watched my grandfather die in pretty bad health Eh, I'm in my late 20s right now and I watch my mom and dad dying from bad health (all my grandparents are dead already). Myself I depend on a lot of pills to survive. Wikipedia says that my life expectancy is ~45 years so ...

Does it run every boot or does it run only when you invoke the command to update GRUB config? It seems the latter which is retarded.

High PPI monitor and unreadable fonts

So I'm kinda returning a bit to music and now I have high PPI monitor and at least Calf and Rosegarden have pretty much unreadable fonts and UI. Is there any solution to this? Why do people still hardcode pixels???

Does it work flawless?


In my experience it found everything except encrypted systems in which case I wrote a simple script that copies the kernel to ESP.

Re: SOUL: The First Universal Sound Language

I wonder if the default implementation will be a spyware like Juce is.

Re: MUSIC DISTROS

Why do you guys use such garbage as GRUB when there are much better loaders such as rEFInd. rEFInd scans EFI system partition during boot and lists all OSes.

Re: Flatpak - Flathub

The biggest problem for me is that the runtimes can't read global configuration and I have no idea how to configure them. I have HiPPI monitor and Flakpak apps think I have 96 PPI and the text is too small. I can barely read it.

Ardour - support only for official builds?

So I've stumbled upon a recent drama involving Ardour and learned that devs only support "official" builds. The reasons vary but I see that the only way to get official build is to pay. But they only provide i386 and amd64 builds. I look at debian repo and see alpha amd64 arm64 armel armhf...

Re: fluidsynth 16 subs questions

You usually setup the channels in DAW. Some keyboards allow to select the channel they output so sometimes you can attach keyboard directly via, say, JACK.

Re: sf2 files, good?

Image files do not have executable contents yet I had a TIFF file that could crack a PSP by simply opening it in image viewer :P
