    And yet there's no KDE thread without your "contributions"

      Can I put an accelerometer on my desktop screen with an Arduino or other simple sensor? I often rotate it vertically...

      As a side note, I put a few sway keybindings (meta+alt+arrow) to rotate it (meta+ctrl+arrow to change the screen current window is displayed on, meta + arrow to change focus, meta+shift+arrow to change window position, etc). I wish KDE's keybindings were a bit more consistent, but lately they just took in the haphazard and legacy windows one. While I understand the rationale, this is messy. There are a lot of shortcuts with Alt for instance, that some apps (blender, for instance) expect. After getting used to meta+click to drag, I do not see a valid reason to put it on alt, as meta seems to be the de-facto standard for compositor or desktop-wide shortcuts. How about using the newly-introduced telemetry to get the list of shortcuts people change?



      I am wondering if it wouldn't be better to unify the style of these checkboxes and Dolphin's selection menu ?
      Yeah, I wish their default shortcuts were more consistent too. But at last I'm very grateful that you can make any shortcuts you want and even backup them, contrary to a certain popular OS that have "sacred" shortcuts that you are not allowed to change...

        You need a USB-i2C adapter https://github.com/harbaum/I2C-Tiny-USB
        and then you can communicate with an accelerometer https://pimylifeup.com/raspberry-pi-...meter-adxl345/

        but I'm not sure how can you make this work with Linux's own infrastructure (i.e. without using a python script), maybe you need to write a kernel module for that?

          It ends when all people that want to use it to troll are gone. It's not the case so far

            Want to know ram usage and cpu cycles of each. Not just of the DE but with its native apps open.
            So the DE that has more "native apps" will use more RAM? I'm not sure about your logic here.

              starshipeleven There’s nothing to troll about. It’s already settled business.

              I for once applaud KDE. It’s pretty wise to adapt rather than becoming the Devuan of decorations.

                Let us be the judges of that.

                      "intellectual pollution"?
