Any locally-installable applications tailored to creating Memes?

Wed, 2018-08-08 04:09

I know we have Inkscape and Gimp, but I'm looking for something like

Meme Ninja ; or


that are created for the exact purpose of creating memes, but these both seem to be no longer under development.

Does anybody have any suggestions?

Why can we run windows programs but not MacOS?

Wed, 2018-08-08 03:55

It's probably a silly question but on Linux we can run probably most windows programs and games thanks to wine🍷 and (not Linux) but someone has completely reverse engineered windows (I think 98?) And created React OS. Why can't we create something like wine but for Mac OS programs. Mac OS is (I'm using this term very loosely) "based" on the *nix family. I think that that would've been easier and came before wine but to this day we still have no way of running Mac programs on Linux like we do windows. (This all started because I'm pissed at the lack of usability programming in swift without xcode. But oooh swift is open source and you can code with it on Linux.)

Please stop duplicating functionality

Wed, 2018-08-08 03:45

Please, PLEASE my fellow Linux peeps, stop duplicating functionality. Too many of you want to write new software, and be a dictator for life of some big project. Please knock it off. The fragmentation needs to end. Join an existing project! MERGE with another project. If you are a dictator or ruling council member over some project ACCEPT criticism and do what is in the best interests of the free software movement, and the software you're in control of, not your damn ego. Let's STOP expanding our pool of software and start REFINING what we've got.

Please? PLEASE!?!

At the very least, please stop recommending newbies try out the new half baked flavor of the month that claims to be newbie friendly but is in fact a complete mess. I'm talking crap like Elementary and Solus. People try this stuff, it screws up and they think that's what Linux has to offer. For gods sake we've had Ubuntu for how long? Recommend it!

I'll go and sit in the corner now.

DaVinci Resolve on Ubuntu with AMD GPUs

Tue, 2018-08-07 22:23

Can anyone help me run DaVinci Resolve on Ubuntu 18.04? I'm using kernel 4.15, and Padoka Stable Mesa for my 2 R9 Fury graphics cards. The welcome tour runs, but the actual program crashes, with no window ever shown.

A new push for Linux gaming and Linux support in general

Tue, 2018-08-07 20:17

Greetings Linux users from Rumbling games studio,

We are an upcoming game development studio located in Egypt. Currently we are developing a historical action rpg game set in the Middle East. All the game information can be found through our Kickstarter link:

We are here to discuss with you our philosophy and mindset regarding game development. We believe gamers should play their games on the platform they prefer. Unlike most studios we can ALWAYS support Linux systems without worrying about costs thanks to our location in Egypt in Africa.

To put things into perspective:
- The average game developer costs in Egypt about (300$) a month.
- So hiring five developers dedicated for Linux support and porting is nothing.
- Our sales break even point is less than 30K copies which means even a Linux exclusive game could earn us a profit!

Linux gamers have always missed many big titles out there, because publishers always consider Linux support is worthless and non profitable. This further alienated many gamers who was considering migrating to Linux.

We are here offering you the opportunity to support a studio that will ALWAYS support Linux systems. A type of games that is not very common on Linux while is very abundant elsewhere. We even plan to have DRM free release on our website or on GOG store.
It is not just about a game you want to play, it is about a studio that will always support you and offer you the freedom of choice in the gaming platform you desire.
