It’s Budgie desktop in Fedora 28. Yeah, actually it’s quite pretty neat, and lightweight!

I think I have to switch desktop in this Fedora installation in my laptop, because it feels quite laggy with KDE, although when I boot to openSUSE, it’s not so. I’ve realized that the best distro that makes great KDE configurations is openSUSE, not Fedora. I’m sorry to say that, but that’s what I got so far. Fedora, I’m sure, is great in Gnome 3 support, as it is the default desktop for Fedora Workstation. But, I’m not too interested to give Gnome 3 a try as for now.

So, instead of Gnome 3, I got interested to Budgie desktop of Solus project. I was wondering its lightweight as often discussed on @fedoraid Telegram group, especially by bro @alunux. And actually, he is the one –maybe the only as well– who provides a COPR repo of Budgie desktop for Fedora. And of course I install it from there. Thanks buddy @alunux. 😀 Keep it on!

Budgie desktop in KDE flavor

I’ve just successfully connected KDE Connect in my Fedora 23 KDE to Android. Just before, I thought it didn’t work in Plasma 5 or broken in Fedora. Since it could not find the Android devices, although they have KDE Connect app installed. But actually, it’s just blocked by firewall config of Fedora.

According to KDE Wiki, the ports for kde-connect need to be opened, i.e 1714-1764. I’ve never thought that such essential part of the desktop environment would be blocked by firewall. So I had no idea to touch firewall config at all. It was until I found a discussion on Reddit about the same problem I had. A user pointing out about Fedora’s firewall that seems blocking kde-connect. But I could see the ports either TCP or UDP have been opened and listened in the firewall config. But then I found out that kde-connect was unchecked in the Services list.

It means that the firewall didn’t allow kde-connect to access the ports it needs. Then I just had to check it, typed password, and voila… my Android device has been found by kde-connect. So now, I can enjoy syncing Android to KDE and playing some stuffs it has.

KDEConnect not Working in Fedora 23 KDE

Have a look at this screenshot. It’s my experience when installed OpenWRT system image via command line. I did that way because it’s almost broken and I thought it bricked. But fortunately, it could be connected via SSH, and I reflashed the image with mtd command, after I scp-ed the binary image.

I’ve just noticed that Google has improved its text-to-speech engine for bahasa Indonesia. Actually, it’s not a fresh news, as Google has released it in December last year. Other posts have explained this earlier. [1]

I always concern about the TTS topic, particularly for bahasa Indonesia. I’ve been writing a post about TTS earlier, too.

Google Translate’s New Voice Engine for Bahasa Indonesia

Saya lupa sejak kapan Chromium browser di Ubuntu sudah bisa menampilkan fonta Jawa dengan benar. Entah setelah update sistem, atau setelah instal ekstensi Anvanced Fonts Settings.

Googling tentang release notes Chromium atau mungkin ada yang posting tentang new feature Chromium belum ketemu nih. Cuma nemu yang lumayan menarik: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=400334

Chromium Sudah Support Fonta SIL Graphite kah?

Linux sudah terkenal hebat untuk digunakan sebagai server web, kita tahu itu. Sebut saja beberapa distro Linux yang terkenal: Debian, CentOS, bahkan Ubuntu. yang biasanya dipilih sebagai sistem operasi server. Mereka ditopang dengan banyaknya program opensource untuk web yang natif di Linux. Untuk server web sendiri, ada Apache yang sangat umum dipakai, NginX, atau Lighttpd.

Sedikit saja untuk pendahuluannya. FYI, judul draf tulisan ini adalah “Bersyukur sudah tahu Linux”. Saya bersyukur karena di Linux, untuk saya adalah Ubuntu, tersedia perkakas (tools) untuk pengembangan web yang demikian lengkap. Anda bertanya, kan Windows juga bisa seperti itu? OS X juga sama? Hmm, saya jawab: iya. Tapi ya begitu lah. Saya rasa Linux sudah paling pas.
