    Lemme check Trump for a second... Yeah your'e right. He is doing much better on all the mentioned points.
    Spreading hate and division inside the US, check.
    Ballooning national debt with bullshit military expenses, check (North Korea is a wet-paper-grade state, if he could just STFU and ignore that Kim crybaby you'd save a ton of money in pointless military posturing).
    Emboldening America's enemies, check (with his trolling he is emboldening Russia and North Korea, and pissing off China).
    Fraying our alliances... check too.

    That's why we must always thank Obama. Because for how hard he tried, he was far less than Trump is now.

    You guys might have misunderstood what this tool is. It doesn't do anything to the mouse configuration on the desktop. It is reprogramming the device itself for the supported mice. The mouse hardware then behaves differently afterwards, the sensor runs at different resolution, the buttons do something else. To change things like pointer acceleration, scroll wheel behavior etc., you still need to see what your desktop environment's settings tool offers for that (and check what the programs you use offer to configure the scroll wheel, like using an scroll tweak extension in your web browser).

    The part in the video about changing what the buttons do might be a bit misleading, I guess? What the tool can do for changing the buttons events or putting keyboard macros on buttons of the mouse, the way this works is that the mouse hardware itself has to be able to do all that stuff. For example with some of the Logitech mice, when you look at "xinput" or "lsusb -t" you'll see the Logitech thingy shows up as two devices. The second device is a keyboard and the mouse uses it to play back keyboard macros without any help from software.

    Libratbag needs libsystemd.
    Technically speaking, it just uses libsystemd for dbus functionality.
    https://github.com/libratbag/libratbag/issues/239

    So as long as you can install libsystemd (which is just a library containing stuff used by the programs in the systemd project, but per-se isn't doing anything) you're fine.

    This is a GUI to configure some gaming mice, and most gaming configuration GUIs are DE agnostic because they set mice settings that are not even OS-specific.
    Obviously I know it's a gaming mice configurator, since I have one. And no, Piper is not DE agnostic since it uses header bar and has a space-wasting design. Thanks Allan Day!
