So if they'd be included in a distro that might send some contributors to them and then they might be able to make that change, it's a possibility, right? And in the meantime, couldn't the package description contain a warning about what you just explained? So then anyone who wants to install it, they can decide for themselves what's more important to them, privacy or security.

sixtyfive added a comment to T5095: pcscd not wanting to do USB, says drivers missing.

First thought that comes to mind: atm there's no ldm yet. So make the driver a dependency of the software now and then swap it when hotplug driver installation has arrived, on which, if I understand you correctly, there's no eta anyways.

Thanks for following up, DataDrake! Unfortunately I really can't tell at the moment as I'll be in a place until at least mid/end May where laptops/etc. are prohibited. Phone only, so no Solus.

It still has problems. After it complaining about missing python-setuptools and python-pyserial (which atm is 3.2.1-1-1) it now complains pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pyserial<4' distribution was not found and is required by platformio and I've no idea how to fix that.

Thank you! It's starting up fine now. Would it be possible to make both of these dependencies to 'pcsc-lite'? (I've installed both as I wasn't sure which one I needed and they don't seem to conflict).

That's a little sad, looking at the fpm project on GitHub (410 open issues, 42 open PRs). Apparently the request for Snap was made by His Shuttleworthness Himself a long time ago and there's also an ongoing situation regarding how to move forward. Perhaps if you point these two things out to the Zoom customer service person, they might forward the issue to an engineer?

One important thing about Hibiscus/Jameica is using card readers via CTAPI or pcsc-lite. At the moment that's something that doesn't (always? sometimes?) work under Solus and it seems that there's some sort of problem with the pcsc-lite version in Solus, but I'm not sure yet.

(And I've so far failed to get bridge networking going. But that's probably my bad understanding of libvirt concepts and I'll just have to keep at it). At least with bridge.conf being in /etc/qemu and /usr/libexec/qemu-bridge-helper being present there's now no error messages anymore.)

@JoshStrobl, I'd still like to understand why there is a repository for geeqie (https://dev.solus-project.com/source/geeqie/) but it is not available as a package?
Is there anything that needs to be done to get it to appear as a package?

I do tend to do that, yeah. More matter-of-factly: how do things get into the thirdparty repository? Are they just ordinary packages that are stored in a different place from the main repository?

The English version of the website is not translated via Google Translate anymore. Also, the software itself is available in English (see note at the top of http://zettelkasten.danielluedecke.de/en/download.php). The official download link seems to be http://zettelkasten.danielluedecke.de/download/Zettelkasten3_linux.zip (it's still version 3.2.7 though).

sixtyfive reopened T6: Zoom as "Open".

With communication apps like this, I don't think a quality-over-quantity argument holds. They create peer pressure (being able to participate in a conversation, lesson, meeting, etc.) and if they're not available somewhere, then that platform can easily become uninteresting in the first place. And as far as the "it's easy to install yourself, there's a tutorial for it" argument: with apps belonging in to the TPR it's about convenience anyways. So why not offer that convenience to users who depend on an app like Zoom?
