Re: Wine and native Midi Problems

The command amidi -l in a terminal tells you all recognized and available MIDI interfaces on Linux. If it shows up with amidi -l then it's also available in Windows programs running with Wine and any other MIDI software. Generally most USB MIDI interfaces are plug and play, they are recognized as so...

Re: Audio on Linux The End of a Golden Age

Can you please summarise what it is about?

It not very helpful to just post a link to a 1 hour long video without any explanation.
(the slides aren't exactly self-explanatory either)

You know, it's exactly these kind of nasty, unnecessary and off-topic (in this thread) comments that put off a lot of people from releasing their source code. :shock:

Re: High PPI monitor and unreadable fonts

So I'm kinda returning a bit to music and now I have high PPI monitor and at least Calf and Rosegarden have pretty much unreadable fonts and UI. Is there any solution to this? Why do people still hardcode pixels??? Have you made sure that your X-Server is set to the correct dpi? You can check the d...

Re: Why is MIDI so broken in Linux?

Troll? Great marketing!! Who sees the title get's interested and starts reading this topic with all confirmations how easy and great it works. Unfortunately there are a lot people these days that just read titles and make assumptions without investigating further. Wether he's a troll or not, I find...

Re: Why is MIDI so broken in Linux?

Can some Mod please change the trollish title of this thread? The OP gives no evidence at all about MIDI being broken, and we all know that MIDI works fine in Linux. A more appropriate title would be "My problems with MIDI" I get the impression we are dealing with a troll, the way the firs...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

So the European parliament yesterday voted with a majority against this law, but apparently that only means that in September they will slightly modify it and then put it up for vote again... The lobbyists clearly never give up :evil:
Democracy has become a farce.

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

Given that this is a moderated forum, and the law does not mandate a particular kind of content filter, the moderators can be considered "content filters' (thing they indeed are). So Linux musicians would not be considered liable. This is incorrect. The filtering has to happen before the conte...

Re: Open Source, Communities, and the Incoming New EU Copyrights Regulations

So, the law proposal passed at the EU parliament. It didn't pass parliament, it only passed in the rights committee. Discussion and voting in the main assembly still hasn't happened yet. The main purpose of art 13 is to establish pre-emptive censorship technology that in the future can, and certain...

Re: Hacked: Github service from Gentoo

This is nowhere near as bad as you seem to think. Quoting from the announcement: This does NOT affect any code hosted on the Gentoo infrastructure. Since the master Gentoo ebuild repository is hosted on our own infrastructure and since Github is only a mirror for it , you are fine as long as you are...

Look for the Zotac GeForce GT-710 2GB (ZT-71302-20L), it's available for about 40€ here in Europe and has VGA, DVI, HDMI outputs.

Re: Peertube is the new FLOSS (and decentralized) alternative to YTube

That's right, only I (and others) had maaany unsuccessful stories with it. I'm not kidding, I've been trying to setup an XMMP-based solution ever since the Jabber days ; Still, you're right, Jitsi/XMMP can do it. I guess you are talking about setting up your own server, because the Jitsi client wor...

Re: Peertube is the new FLOSS (and decentralized) alternative to YTube

Note that I did not talk about any replacement for this application (instant MSG+VOIP+rooms+screen sharing/remote desktop) because you guys are right, there are still no FLOSS federated alternative yet :( Jitsi can do all of that and has been available for many years and is FOSS. It's a XMPP client...
