[Kvaesitso] Modern, smooth and efficient Android workflow (Gallery and setup in description)
  • Your Home screen looks awesome! I use Kvaesitso for a long time now, the only thing that bugs me, is that you can't customize the clock very much. Well you can adjust the style but I would like adjust the color of the numbers. It would also be nice, if you could apply the launcher to edit the lock screen and add widgets too.

  • What thing do you love that you can never get anyone else to check out?
  • Custom Roms I love how I can load custom ROMs on devices. I tried to talk my friends and co-workers into it but they seem really disinterested. I even took one of my older phones and showed it to them in person. They weren't really fascinated by the fact, that I got something different than Android or iOS on my phone. The only thing they liked was, how the lockscreen in Ubuntu Touch looked.

  • How many pillows under your head in bed?
  • None, I sleep on my elbow.

  • Which games do you dislike, but the rest of the world loves them?
  • Well... I didn't knew that. I might give Witcher another shot then. Thanks.

  • What technical issues did you ignore for an extended period of time?
  • My lovley Logitech gamer headset from like 2014 started to loose volume overtime on the right ear. So I just manually adjusted the volume of the right ear to about 60% while the other one had 39%. Over the years that gap grew bigger and bigger. I still use them but they sit at a configuration which now changes every week or so. The right ear sits now a 132% and the left on 39%.

  • What is the earliest thing that you can remember seeing or hearing online?
  • I think it was when my friend showed me how to ping in the Ubuntu Terminal. My first ever OS was Ubuntu but I didn't used the magical Internet very Mich back then.

  • Which games do you dislike, but the rest of the world loves them?
  • Hogwarts Legacy: To be fair it is a big Openworld but it doesn't catch me. The Story is kind of lame the voice sounds a little bit too Much like a crappy TTS. I tried to finish it but I always stop after like 30minutes played.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt I dislike that the Openworld is like a movie. You don't need to think where you want to go, you just follow the little dots on your minimap until your are there. Its so utterly boring. I love the souls franchise, you see an NPC, walk up to her talk to her and write the important things down on your Notepad. To be fair, Wircher 3 looks absolutely beautiful after the recent patch.

    Edit: I really really dislike Fortnite. Its highly overrated and it isn't even original.

  • Best protective case for FP4

    Hello everybody! I'm looking for a sturdy and robust case, but I can't seem to find anything. I know that there is the good ol' official Fairphone Soft case, but I absolutely hate it. My phone often slips out of it when laying on the screen, and it feels like it doesn't even protect the phone. I know that I could just replace the screen if it were broken, but in the long term, a case would be more effective.

    Is there any case around that is like This or a little less extreme like this?

    Thanks in advance!

  • In-ear headphones or over-ear headphones?

    Hello, everyone. I've been thinking about getting the WF-1000XM5, but I'm not sure if it's a good investment. I've heard that the WF-1000XM4 had a major battery drainage problem. Is this still the case with the WF-1000XM5?

    Right now, I am using the WH-CH710N. They've been great, but recently they started to break. They still work, but the ANC doesn't isolate the same way on the right ear as in the left ear, and they aren't really compact. So I'm looking for an upgrade. I know that over-ear headphones are superior when talking ANC, but they aren't as compact as in-ear. I've also heard that the AirPods Pro are a good option. But as an Android user, I usually tend to avoid Apple products.

    Do you guys have any recommendations?

  • I do not trust any company, even if it is "privacy-friendly" or "anonymous". There is no way to proofe this, sure I could view the code but there might just be a slight possibility that the company is saving and stealing your data.Self-Hostinmg is for me the way to go.

  • Cheap and good mini-PCs for gaming?

    Hello, everybody! I want to have a little mini-PC for gaming that operates like a console. I don't want to have a big, clunky case in the back or front of the TV. Furthermore, I don't play many AAA titles from recent years, so the hardware doesn't need to be high-end. It would be nice if I could run Scarlet Nexus, Nier: Automata, and Horizon Zero Dawn at a stable 60 FPS. The graphics don't need to be extreme; I just want to enjoy the game.

    Also recommend some great distro's for gaming.

    HDD or SSD?

    Hello, everybody. I've been looking for a new storage solution. I know, that HDDs are reliable and SSDs are for fast access, but I've been an HDD user ever since. I have an SSD, but I only have the OS on it. Likewise, I want to do some basic File operations, as writing documents or copy files. It would also be great if I could use it as a Backup kind of sorts device. It would be great if I could move my data from my old WD-Elements external HDD, quickly, to an intern HDD without any fuss. I just need a Storage medium that's cheap and good. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

    Is Tidal/Deezer worth it?

    Hello, everybody, I've been thinking to move on from my Spotify subscription to move to Tidal or Deezer. I want to try out HIFI audio, but still get a good and stable experience. Are there any suggestions for which one I should pick? Could you also tell about your experience with those apps, or are there any other you would recommend more?

    In which game did you spend the most hours?

    I discovered today that my most played game on Steam is Astronner with about 500 hours, and my second most played is Surviving Mars with about 500 hours.

    My Distro ranking

    So, that's my reply to Chris Titus Tech's listing. I mostly agreed but still, made my own.

    What do you like about your Linux Distro?

    I use Fedora 38, it's stable, things just work, and the software is up-to-date.

    HDD not recognized

    Hello, everyone. I have this problem where my external HDD doesn't get detected. On an old laptop with Windows 7, it gets detected, but it won't open. On Fedora, it doesn't even get detected on the whole system. In the KDE partition manager it does show up as "sdd", but it will not show up in Dolphin or in the terminal, when manually searching for it. It's a WD Element external HDD. I think it's formatted with NTFS. I have lots of important data on that drive, so reformatting is not an option. Not only that, but I haven't dropped the drive, nor have I done physical damage to it. It's only about a year old.

    Specs that might help: Distro:Fedora release 38 (Thirty Eight) Kernel:6.2.15-300.fc38.x86_64 RAM:8 GB GPU Driver:4.6 Mesa 23.0.3 GPU:AMD Radeon RX 580 (polaris10, LLVM 16.0.4, DRM 3.49, 6.2.15-300.fc38.x86_64) CPU:Intel Core i7-4770K @ 3.50GHz

    Thanks for the help, in advance.

    Best Linux mobile distro for Samsung device

    Hello, everybody. I want to try GNU/Linux on my phone. I just have a slight problem: I don't know which distro I need to choose and how to install it. Furthermore, I've heard of Mobian and Plasma mobile, but none of them support my SM-A510F (2016). The bootloader is unlocked, so that's not really an obstacle. Can I just like install Mobian on it without having some support at all, or will it just brick the whole phone? How do I even do it. I'm Familiar with the Installation of Lineage OS, but that was on my OnePlus 5 and this Samsung branded phone is a little more complicated, I didn't even get to install Lineage OS on that phone.
