Hi Rob and Rocco,

Just thought I’d give a shout out to my new favourite podcast, thank you both for all of your hard work, and on your respective YouTube channels too.

As self-confessed distro-hoppers I was wondering if you could discuss elementary os and maybe a focus on minimalism in distros – being ill right now gave me an epiphany that I used to distro-hop like crazy until I landed on elementary. When I started using it, I felt trapped because it’s not as flexible as (for example) KDE and hated it until I realised that it has its own work flow that prevented me from breaking it – now I rely on it and can’t imagine switching. Is this minimalist approach key to stability in the Linux desktop? When I can configure a desktop, I find I will and then I inevitably switch to another distro when I break it – but when I can’t tinker with it, I get things done more effectively and am more likely to stick with it.

Sorry for the short essay, thanks, and keep up the great work!

Kind regards,
William Willis Whinn

I listened to the MP3 ‘Destination Linux Update’ dated 20th April 17 on Podbean.  The last regular episode I had was Number 14 dated 1st April 17.  I’m sorry you’ve been having problems and really like the show.  However, I resubscribed to the show and still had the same episode listings as before.

I don’t understand the finer details of podcasting and subscriptions and so I’m wondering how it is that I got nothing from Episode 14 apart from the ‘Update’?  Surely, if I got the ‘Update’, I’d at least get every episode since then?

Thanks for bearing with me and for your help in my Linux journey.

Best wishes

Andrew

Hey guys great to see you finally have a real website. And thanks for the referral message. My Podcast Addict still had the old feed and I was beginning to wonder was going on.
Enjoy the show, and really enjoy the “safe for work” aspect of the show. And while I listen to other podcasts, many I can’t recommend to others.

BTW- The Email link and the Telegram links don’t work.

Keep up good work!
Thanks,

David

Hi Rob & Rocco

With the never-ending nonsense from YouTube regarding flagging videos for no logical reason, etc. – would ye guys consider moving to another video site? I recommend Dailymotion. Additionally ye could upload your videos (past & future) to archive.org.

Hi guys

Absolutely love the Destination Linux podcast & both of your own YouTube
channels. Fantastic work!

I’d be interested to find out if either of you have tried Chakra?
https://chakralinux.org/

I’ve recently started to run Chakra as my daily driver and find it to be
a superb KDE implementation. By far the best Linux distribution to fit
my needs.

From what I can tell they’ve been going a few years now & came up with
the idea of a half-rolling release model long before Linux Mint or KDE
Neon.

I don’t see many reviews or videos available for Chakra & I believe they
deserve much more attention.

I’d really appreciate any thoughts or comments!
Kind Regards

Mark

Hello:  Rob & Rocco

Just wanted to tell you all, that the new Ubuntu Mate 17.04 does not work on my system.  Big deal!  That’s not a deal killer for me i will just use something else. What works for me. ( fedora 25 ) yes like all the distro’s they are all in need of some work. I will say to you guy’s keep doing what you are doing. Your shows are for everyone to enjoy.  And i do, Those who don’t like what you say about distros or the comments, or reviews don’t need to complain. If they want to do a disto review. just jump right in, and do your own assessment of the distros. And they can then put on their big boy pants, and see what happens!  Everyone is a expert but the expert!

Love the show, reviews and guests. Keep going it is all good and fun.

Hi guys, great channel – loving the weekly shows. I don’t know if you already have one, but have you considered creating a Patreon page as a way to accept donations? Happy to contribute in a small way, as I’m sure others are, towards the cost of keeping the doors open :-).
Keep up the great shows guys.

Please pay me back for the time wasted with the long intro and the opening nonsense. Oh, and throw in a few bucks for every “Uh”.

Hey Rocco, I wanted to give another UPDATE on LADSPA (Pulseaudio Dynamic Range Comression) aka Audio Output Normalization.

Laz

Instructions for the Fix
==============================================================
1) Make sure gedit is installed (sudo get-apt install gedit)

2) We need to install 3 items: (Synaptic Package Manager recommended)
Pulseaudio (if not installed)
pavucontrol (if not installed)
swh-plugins

3)Type in konsole:
sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa
*(nano doesn’t work)

4) Scroll to the bottom of the file “/etc/pulse/default.pa” and add the following lines:

### Pulseaudio Dynamic Range Compression
.ifexists module-ladspa-sink.so
.nofail
load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=compressor plugin=sc4m_1916 label=sc4m control=1,1.5,401,-30,20,5,12
.fail
.endif

5) Save the file and restart PC

6) Open pavucontrol and choose LADSPA output module
(this may not actually look like it’s selected, but the icon of the output device should say “LADSPA stream on”

7) Then set each Application output to the LADSPA module.

8) Done. Your ears will thank you. Pass it on. 🙂

=================================================================

Thank you for listening and we will see you next time
