  • pywebview

    Project mention: NiceGUI 1.2.0: Electron for Python | | 2023-03-20

    Thanks for sharing. The issue is tracked at But it looks like something which originates from the pywebview lib which is used to provide the native mode.

  • Waybar

    Highly customizable Wayland bar for Sway and Wlroots based compositors. :v: :tada:

    Project mention: I can’t get over the font change in Windows 11 task bar time 😫 | | 2023-03-19

  • Ulauncher

    Linux Application Launcher 🇺🇦

    Project mention: How do you guys make good use of the app grid? I feel like I use it way less than I originally thought. | | 2023-03-16

    NOTE: If you're using a Wayland session, the Ctrl + Space shortcut (which brings up the launcher) will be unreliable due to other windows eating the keyboard events instead (see the official Ulauncher wiki). The workaround solution is very simple and also works on X11, so we'll replace Ulauncher's default binding with the workaround technique everywhere, so that it works universally on both X11 and Wayland.

  • hexchat

    GTK+ IRC client

    Project mention: is shutting down | | 2023-03-23

    First off, grab yourself an IRC client. On their connection info page Hackint has information for both WeeChat and Hexchat, but you could use any IRC client.

  • firefox-gnome-theme

    A GNOME👣 theme for Firefox🔥

    Project mention: How do you think with GTK4 none themable? | | 2023-03-16

    It's nice in theory to try to have a cohesive design, but as soon as you start downloading additional apps, thing will start being less and less coherent. Maybe you'll get Firefox to match the rest of the system (but that will require a separately maintained CSS for every ,theme like what Rafael Mardojai does for Firefox), but apps Chromium, OBS, Steam, Discord, Spotify? It's not realistic to expect every App to maintain a version that fits every DE there is. The only thing I would care about is that the apps come with a Light/Dark mode and follow the system preference.

  • bleachbit

    BleachBit system cleaner for Windows and Linux

    Project mention: How to clear up C drive? | | 2023-03-29

    This tool will help

    Project mention: Anyone using a launcher? | | 2023-03-25

    Right now there's Steam, Heroic (Epic, Gog), Itch, Gamejolt, Humble, etc. Nothing really integrates all of them except GameHub and it's inactive and doesn't have EGS support.

  • dino

    Modern XMPP ("Jabber") Chat Client using GTK+/Vala (by dino)

    Project mention: Instant Messaging: XMPP or Websocket | | 2022-11-05

    So XMPP is an awesome protocol in theory. Also many issues you're trying to solve are probably already solved in one of the specifications and I personally think that XMPP is missing out on clients. Some clients are nice (i.e. Conversations or Dino) but they are not as appealing as Telegram or Discord.

  • go-gtk

    Go binding for GTK

  • Remmina

    Mirror of The GTK+ Remmina Remote Desktop Client

    Project mention: GUI Control, fedora to fedora | | 2023-03-17

    You can use RDP, it's already installed in Fedora. (Assuming Gnome/Wayland), you go to Settings > Sharing, and enable Remote Desktop. It'll generate a new password for access by default. I only use with MS Remote Desktop from a Mac, but I think people generally like Remmina as a client.

  • pdfarranger

    Small python-gtk application, which helps the user to merge or split PDF documents and rotate, crop and rearrange their pages using an interactive and intuitive graphical interface.

    Project mention: PDF Arranger KDE Alternative? | | 2023-03-28

    I have always only been using PDF Arranger for manipulating PDF files (merging different files, arranging, adding, deleting pages) and I'm wondering if there really is no KDE equivalent for that application.

  • themix-gui

    Graphical application for generating different color variations of Oomox (Numix-based) and Materia (ex-Flat-Plat) themes (GTK2, GTK3, Cinnamon, GNOME, Openbox, Xfwm), Archdroid, Gnome-Color, Numix, Papirus and Suru++ icon themes.

    Project mention: Dark theme with good coverage | | 2022-12-28

    pip install -U git+

  • dotfiles

    :cherry_blossom: 𝐀esthetic 𝐎penbox𝐖𝐌 𝐄nvironment (by owl4ce)

    Project mention: Any linux ricers here? Would like some references to good resources about dotfile and git repo structuring. | | 2022-12-17

    2) In addition, while using well made dotfiles has been helpful for learning and spring boarding on, I do struggle with understanding some of the file structure. For example, I've been using to reference some of my files from, but while I understand the file content, I'm having difficulty understanding the locations and how they install from git. I'm trying to read about both the dotfile structuring as well as git repo structuring. Any good articles would be helpful.

  • gnvim

    GUI for neovim, without any web bloat

    Project mention: Nvim-rs new release 0.5 | | 2022-10-12

    Nvim-rs is a rust library for writing rpc clients for neovim, utilizing the async/await language feature. It allows to write guis that embed neovim (like neovide and gnvim), external clients (like nvim-send), or more standard plugins (like this port of the iconic scorched earth).
