Once you turn on your Laptop it should just sync from your phone, no? I don’t really get what the issue here is

If every app on your phone was constantly running and asking the server for new messages, it would drain a lot of battery. That’s why phones instead use a single app that asks a notification server if any new notifications are there. The way it works is if you e.g. get a WhatsApp message, the WhatsApp server tells the notification server that you have a new message, then when the notification app asks that server for new messages, the server will tell it that there’s a new WhatsApp notification. Then the notification app wakes up WhatsApp and tells it there’s a new notification, then WhatsApp checks for new messages and shows you the notification.

Most apps use Apple’s system (whatever it’s called) on iOS or Google’s Firebase on Android for that. There are also apps that let you use the open standard UnifiedPush, which let’s you use any notification app or server you want.

The applications just run in the background the whole time. KDE was working on implementing UnifiedPush in Plasma but I don’t know if it’s already implemented or still in the works.

But the hydrogen also has to be transported, which produces CO2, you need containers for that that also produce CO2 when getting manufactured. I’m not saying it’s more than with a battery but it could be. We’d need actual numbers to really know tho.

Problems running *arr stack on Raspberry Pi

Hello everyone, I have a Raspberry Pi 4B with 2GBs of RAM. I am trying to run all the *arr stack via docker containers(5 or 6 containers) but this causes my Raspberry Pi to lag very much. I could not use any of the stack’s web interface or SSH to the pi during the lag and to fix it I had to reset the pi....

You can also just make a swap file, you won’t have to make partition that way

Fisch ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

So does a swap partition. I just meant that’s an option as an alternative to it. But now that I think about it, not enough RAM wouldn’t cause performance issues anyway, it would just cause random applications to stop working.

Can Linux be dual booted on a computer with Windows?

I have a Lenovo Yoga running Windows 10 on a 1TB SSD and at some point will probably have to upgrade it to Windows 11. I use it for school and have to keep Windows on it for now because of what I’m currently doing. I want to start getting into Linux in hopes of making the switch sometime down the line.

I agree with the others that testing in a VM (Virtual Machine) first is probably a good idea. Keep in mind that because of missing 3D acceleration inside a VM things like desktop animations might not work.

As for distros, I’d recommend Mint or Fedora. I personally use Fedora.

What’s also important is the desktop environment you choose. The most popular ones are GNOME and KDE Plasma. GNOME is closer to MacOS than Windows and is made to just work while KDE Plasma has a layout similar to Windows out of the box but is very customizable and has a lot of options. Ubuntu uses GNOME but they make quite a few changes to it. Fedora uses GNOME by default but there’s also a KDE Plasma version, I think. Mint doesn’t have these 2 by default, you can always install them if you want to afterwards tho. The 3 options Mint gives you are also more Windows-like but I haven’t tried them myself, so I can’t tell you much about them. A VM would give you the ability to just install them, try them out and delete them afterwards. I personally use GNOME btw.

Help using Mangohud / Gamemode with Flatpak version of Lutris and Steam

Good mini PC for around 100€

My current setup consists of a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4gb RAM and a 1tb external SSD. I’m thinking of getting a used mini PC for around 100€ to replace that tho because it would give me a lot more power and especially RAM (I currently need to use an 8gb swap file). My plan so far is to get a used mini PC that’s quiet, has a...

Fisch OP ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

Just looked around and there are mini PCs for around 130€ with Intel N100 CPUs, which have a 6W TDP, AV1 decoding and they beat an i5 6500T (that one’s in a 130€ Dell Optiplex I found on ebay) in single core and gets close enough in multicore. Is there some kind of catch I’m not seeing with that CPU? Because it looks perfect for my use case.

Fisch OP ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

I can also buy an adapter and plug the drive in over USB. It would be nicer if it fit inside but it’s not that important.

Fisch OP ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

Actually, I found the Firebat T8 Pro Plus, which has an Intel N100, 16gb LPDDR5 RAM and a 512gb M.2 SSD. It’s more than 5 times faster than the Pi, has AV1 decoding and a power draw of 27W (not TDP, this number is from independent tests). It goes for 146€ on Aliexpress. It’s a little more than 100€ but for what I’m getting here, I think it’s worth it.

Fisch OP ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

I’m probably going to get a used HDD and connect it with an adapter over USB. A NAS would be way more expensive.

Fisch OP ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

I didn’t plan on paying much more than 100€ because it’s replacing my Pi but the one I bought can probably replace both my Pis. I just didn’t think about selling the other Pi as well before.

Fisch OP ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

I actually bought a similar one with the same CPU. You’re not the first to recommend a mini PC with the N100, so it seems like it was the right choice haha.

KDE’s system monitor is absolutely great, I kinda missed it when switching to GNOME because their default system monitor is very lackluster. I’m now using Mission Center instead tho, which is great! It’s basically an almost 1:1 copy of the Windows Task Manager but I think that’s a good thing, Task Manager is one of the few things about Windows that are actually really good IMO.

I’ve been using YunoHost, which does this for you but I’m thinking of switching to a regular Linux install, which is why I’ve been searching for stuff to replace YunoHost’s features. That’s why I came across Nginx Proxy Manager, which let’s you easily configure that stuff with a web UI. From what I understand it also does certificates for you for https. Haven’t had the chance to try it out myself tho because I only found it earlier today.

I don’t know what AI could bring to the table in this case that you can’t do without it already. Command completions or fixing typos works without using AI. If there was an actual benefit, I’d be open to try it out but only by using an open source LLM running locally. I’m definitely not creating an account and paying a monthly subscription while not even being able to use it offline.

No, electric vehicle sales aren’t dropping. Here’s what’s really going on (www.cnn.com)

No, electric vehicle sales aren’t dropping. Here’s what’s really going on::Tesla has been slashing prices. Ford just cut the price of its Mustang Mach-E, too, plus it cut back production of its electric pickup. And General Motors is thinking about bringing back plug-in hybrids, arguably a step back from EVs.

I live in a relatively small town in Germany (about 8k residents) and we have mutiple public charging stations here. Insane how bad the infrastructure is over in Australia.

Fisch ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

An EV would work if the infrastructure was there. Modern EV batteries can charge full in like 15 minutes but it’s not even gonna take that long cause you’ll obviously not be plugging it in at 0%. The charger needs to support that amount of power throughput tho tbf.

How does a smaller population make it easier to pay those incentives? Less people also means less tax income and vice versa

Fisch ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

Just because the borders are drawn around a bigger or smaller area, doesn’t change how long people need to drive when they wanna get somewhere

Fisch ,

True but the issue is that your government isn’t doing anything about it. They could e.g. require every gas station to have an electric charger (Will be the case soon in Germany)

Fisch ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

The issue is how the US is spending tax money then and not the population

Fisch ,
@Fisch@lemmy.ml avatar

If you want to make changes like that, you tell each state they’re supposed to e.g. upgrade everyone to fiber and then the local government of each state handles it. I thought that was the whole point of having those states.

Not gonna be able to afford that as a first car but I think that’s a reasonable price. Hopefully I’ll be able to buy an EV like that after a few years of working. Would be cool if there was an EV I could afford as a first car tho but the used market is probably just not there yet.
