    apt-get functionality for .debs published in 3rd party repositories or via direct download 📦

    The first thing I would do here is make sure that your keyboard is set to the correct locale and layout. You can check this under Settings -> Keyboard The next thing to note is that the key code send by laptop keyboards are often proprietary and don't work out of the box. You can use xev / xorg-xev to see what key code is returning and update your key bindings. What is the recommended way to install applications? Ignore the Pop OS shop? Is it an app to app decision? Thank you for the recommendation. Use apt or the pop shop for most things but for proprietary things I'd use deb-get or just download directly. Flatpaks and Snaps are great but doesn't always have the best system level integrations. This is a serious problem with Linux on the desktop in general and I'm looking forward to an os agnostic package format becoming dominate.

  • piper

    GTK application to configure gaming devices

    "Piper" is a GUI front-end to the ratbagd DBus daemon for some/most Logitech mouse control issues and button programming.

  • Mergify

    Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.
