  • photoshopCClinux

    Project mention: Windows feature that resets system clocks based on random data is wreaking havoc | | 2023-08-17

    Unless you need the newest features, Photoshop runs surprisingly well under Wine - and I don't mean this in the usual "oh yea, Wine totally works" way where it's a huge pain to set up and is 90% luck, it actually runs with barely more glitches than on Windows (not zero, but it's Adobe software, so you can't expect much).

    This is the installer I used to use:

    This one is newer and looks even more promising:

  • pfetch

    🐧 A pretty system information tool written in POSIX sh.

    Project mention: Pure Bash Bible | | 2023-08-08

    > does NetBSD sh or FreeBSD sh have them.

    Yes and yes. My FreeBSD machine has not even been updated in 5 years, if that helps.

    > What's the point of "pure sh" if it's restricted to specific versions of shells.

    The aforementioned features have been implemented for a very long time. The issues with old versions of dash I mentioned were crashes for very simple things, which is simply a bug rather than some fancy new-fangled feature that was yet to be implemented. Plus, the bible specifically listed workarounds for them.

    dylanaraps has quite a prolific collection of shell programs, and they run on a variety of operating systems. Most notably, pfetch[1] runs on Linux, Android, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Minix, Haiku, macOS, Solaris and IRIX. I assure you that he is fully aware of the importance of compatibility.

    His pure Bash bible even has very thorough warnings for Bash versions required, since macOS uses Bash 3.2 (released in 2006) due to licensing reasons.
