this post implies that you download debs from the internet instead of using your distro's package manager

also last I checked apt hasn't stopped being a cli over the years

I think that's entirely a Hyprland problem. Iirc there's some option in the misc config group in the config to help mitigate that.

E: I meant specifically opengl:nvidia_anti_flicker

Debian users try not to tell everyone at every opportunity to use Debian challenge (impossible)

FDO is FreeDesktop dot Org, the XDG people

Vaxry is an asshole (the Hyprland maintainer)

  1. I'd say go for a rolling, maybe do updates on weekends
  2. The students will very likely appreciate the customizability of Plasma or Cinnamon; if you want them to focus on work, GNOME (probably with some extensions) would be better. Tilers are a bad idea, because they take some getting used to
  3. Doesn't really matter, company distros might be paid tho, and that can obviously get expensive
  4. Wayland if your DE has good support (i.e. is GNOME or Plasma), otherwise X
  5. Btrfs' snapshotting capabilities might be useful to rollback the system to something working if the students fuck something up
  6. Immutable without sudo access should be the safest to hand over to people that you don't want to ruin anything
  7. I don't know enough about specific purpose distros

If you already know Nix, NIxOS would be a good choice

I'm so glad you can automate QA jobs

A concerning amount of Windows users say they're PC users.

Yuri though, so good post

I think something like

%wheel ALL= NOPASSWD: /bin/apt

should be the right way of disabling the password for apt.

They do! /bin has the executables, and /usr/share has everything else.

I don't think there really is an easy way to do this. For sure not as easy as reinstalling.

TL;DR: Wofi is unmaintained

Wofi is a launcher/menu for wlroots based compositors.

The description on the sourcehut says that it's not actively maintained. Looking at the commits confirms this: The most recent commit was 4 months ago, and the 10th most recent 10 months ago. The creator also confirms this again in a reddit comment. (libreddit link)

Yet in most places I look (sway wiki 1, sway wiki 2*, hyprland wiki**, gentoo wiki, arch wiki sway, arch wiki hyprland, awesome hyprland**) it's at least listed somewhere, often near or at the top, with no mention of the maintenance status. I also searched for comments on lemmy containing wofi and only one of them mentioned that it's unmaintained, and that under a post that's seemingly deleted.

*edited by me just now

**filing an issue (or maybe pr) tomorrow when I'm less tired

I guess it still works perfectly fine, and I'm ok with using unmaintained software (Android 9), but I'm sure there are people who would like to know that.

While I'm here, I'd like to highlight that there is an active rofi fork that supports wayland with full functionality, which is a great alternative to wofi.
