    • Front Page Linux (FPL) is a News, Tutorials, Articles & Videos website brought to you by the Destination Linux Network.
    • FPL’s mission is to provide a one-stop shop for written media for Linux & Open Source content on the web. FPL is also very different in the structure because FPL works with the Open Source philosophy in that anyone in the community can contribute to the content of the site. If you’re interested in contributing to FPL then please check out the FPL section on the DLN Discourse Forum.
  • Software Spotlight:
    • SoX – the “swiss army knife of sound processing programs”. SoX is a command line utility that can convert various formats of computer audio files in to other formats. It can also apply various effects to these sound files, and, as an added bonus, SoX can play and record audio files on most platforms. So if you need to combine audio, resample, extract portions of audio or just about anything else – SoX is a progream for you to check out.
  • Tips & Tricks:
    • KDE Plasma’s Global Shortcut for Muting a Microphone
  • Gaming on Linux
    • Trailer Trashers
      • One of the great aspects of gaming is it can give you a break from reality and even offer some silly ridiculous fun. That’s where games like ‘Trailer Trashers’ comes in.
      • Now this game even though it has some cartoon-ish like graphics is mature theme with some of the cartoon violence so don’t play it with your kids. However, it’s a ridiculous premise with lots of fast paced actions to enjoy with your adult friends.

  1. LBRY has a filesize limit of 2GB max on the sync and this week and last week were both around 2.5GB. I tried to upload last week’s to LBRY many many times throughout the week and it never worked. I have to try and figure out a permanent solution for this.

    Probably not workable, but there’s an open-source video conferencing software from Jitsi (Jitsi Meet) which seems like it might work as a Zoom alternative.

  3. Already solved it :smiley:

    166 on LBRY & 167 on LBRY

    It’s not workable because it is very limited in options for our workflow but also it requires Chromium/Google Chrome and I really really hate when sites do that so on principle it created an arbitrary barrier for me.

    Huh, I pulled that fact from an open issue on Github. They said that feature parity isn’t there but basic functionality works. I guess I should have checked all avenues. Perhaps they are as you say.

  5. Thanks, everyone. I think it’s pretty good Tuxedo teaming-up with Manjaro. I was on the Tuxedo website, looks pretty impressive, especially as buying their devices means saving oneself from being forced to pay for a copy of Windows!

    I quite like Jitsi, though yes, it’s annoying that it works with Chromium but not Firefox (on Debian at least). It’s the only time I open Chromium.

    Front Page Linux sounds very exciting indeed! These days I’m mostly on the forum just to comment on the shows, but look forward to the new site and content too :+1:
