During my Windows time I used MetaData Stripper: http://codewelt.com/stripper
MAT looks like it comes closest to it and I don't know of any better alternative.
- I checked with the developer via https://github.com/linode/python-linode-api/issues/89
- I run a Streisand server on a Linode VPS and this package is required on the local machine. If ineligible, the older package would also work I think: https://github.com/tjfontaine/linode-python

@Raymonf Did you try ibus-cangjie?
Jan 25 2018
I'm not sure who we're trying to appeal to by doing that? The site is pretty free of technical jargon, as we're not trying to appeal explicitly to Linux enthusiasts, rather, we're trying to be an OS for everyone.
@yaomtc Are you talking about the NetworkManager Applet or the network settings in GNOME? What type of VPN connection is it?
Would be interesting to know how this compares to Evince and perhaps MuPDF (-->T2156).

Looks like there is some movement: https://github.com/BelledonneCommunications/linphone-desktop/commit/d81a0ee59168902b00134701968b5862144b1518

It was previously an Electron-based application but has also been recently rewritten in C++.

Don't really see why this is needed over simply downloading the wallpapers you want from GitHub directly.

Yeah or similar to what @joebonrichie has suggested for T4954. The reason behind this - for me at least - is quite simple: give the user maximum control over the programme. If you want to install a specific programme but it comes bundled with tons of others you don't want (of course dependencies are a different issue and they are necessary ingredients in the actual "dish"), the installation essentially circumvents a user's consent.
@joebonrichie I think a distinction between android-tools-adb and android-tools-fastboot solves this quite neatly as the "bundled use case" remains clear but would still allow for separate installation and hence more control over the programme.
I would prefer to be able to install applets individually, never really liked bundles. There may be technical reasons, that is, when a software is very often used in conjunction with another one, as could be argued is the case with android-tools in T4954. But then this is really a problem with the author of the repository in the first place. Maybe it should be discussed there?

Related to T4583.
@theSoenke Thanks for packaging. Looks like it hasn't been reviewed yet.
Opened for re-evaluation given there was a 2017 bugfix update and the C++ rewrite has currently no active development.
Jan 17 2018
Has there already been a reply by the dev?
Opened for re-evaluation given the packaging policy has since changed.
Jan 16 2018
Yeah, I've raised an issue on their github tracker a long time ago but have never gotten a reply: https://github.com/WinterLicht/Chaos-Projectile/issues/13
The latest version should have fixed it. @stigarn
I think what @CamCamCamCam meant was to move Franz from Third Party to the Solus repository as it is open source since version 5.
Duplicate of T4838.

Wireguard is working well in China and would be tremendously helpful in circumventing the nasty censorship system at place. I am running a Streisand server and would love to be able to use Wireguard on Solus. See: https://github.com/StreisandEffect/streisand/pull/1119
Isn't there a possibility to add wireguard-dkms modules as distribution packages to the repository? To my knowledge, these would not have to be rebuilt when kernels are rebuilt. See: https://launchpad.net/~wireguard/+archive/ubuntu/wireguard (Ubuntu), https://packages.debian.org/sid/wireguard-dkms (Debian), https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/jdoss/wireguard/ (Fedora)

You might want to reconsider my original request after reading this article and in light of the meltdown and spectre vulnerabilities: https://www.lawfareblog.com/spectre-advertising-meltdown-what-you-need-know
I think create_ap should be reevaluated. As far as I know the Hotspot function in the Gnome settings does not support WPA2.
Jan 7 2018
@kyrios123 Thanks for packaging. I have also just set up my OpenVPN server but I am not experienced enough to build it locally until it lands in stable. But in order to land in stable it would need testing. Is there anyone with his or her own OpenVPN server who could help out in checking if it works as intended? The reason I need Stunnel is because the OpenVPN protocol is blocked in real-time where I live, circumstances which may make testing more difficult, not to speak of that I am not sure what to look for if it doesn't work.

@feskyde Thanks for working on this. I am not sure if it is safe to install from the software-center or is it already patched?
I don't have Virtualbox installed.
It's not related to AMD in my case as I use an Intel® Core™ i5-2540M CPU @ 2.60GHz × 4. It happened for the first time as I was aborting an update in the software center (linux firmware and linux kernels) as it was too slow (around 50kb/s). I aborted the downloads during downloading stage, not updating stage though. I had to cold reboot and was able to get into Solus again.

3.0.0 has just been released, not sure if the zbar issue is still present: https://github.com/shadowsocks/shadowsocks-qt5/archive/v3.0.0.tar.gz
Even though I have many reservations about the use of PIA, I'd be happy to test this with an account if included. Running out of usable options here in China.
Jan 4 2018
Thank you for getting this one included. I think you forgot to close this one.
@ikey If I understand it correctly, there is no possibility to have Safejumper included into the Solus repositories because they added the Tunnelblick patches to openVPN. According to jpwhiting from their team:
Probably better to deal with this in separate tasks. Nevertheless, related or possible duplicate of T3102.
Just found it. Would you actually package https://download.kde.org/stable/zanshin/zanshin-0.5.0.tar.xz or https://download.kde.org/stable/zanshin/zanshin-0.5.0.tar.xz.sig ?
@stigarn Thanks for your work on this. This is one of my most wanted packages. :) It looks like the issue you've pointed to is not resolved yet. Is there any way to solve it by updating dnscrypt-proxy first as indicated in T3102?
Jan 3 2018
@euoar Thanks for your work and the updates. I just got to know by hanging out in the zanshin IRC channel that 0.5.0 is on the way with the tarball scheduled to arrive soon in https://download.kde.org/stable/
In my case, it is an external, freshly bought 512 GB SSD. Just to be sure, was I wrong in creating an MBR/DOS partition table if I only intend to use it for data storage? I have asked about this in different IRC channels and got contradicting answers, some regarding it as necessary in any case, while others considered it not necessary.
@Alphacox Were you able to access the partition again?
Not sure if this is of any help but dmesg output is:

I get the same error message when trying to use my external SSD with an MBR partition table and formatted to NTFS. The error messages are:
- Unable to access "512 GB Volume": No object for D-Bus interface
- Unable to unmount "512 GB Volume": No object for D-Bus interface
The issue appears to be fixed for the Tasks tab but now the font is cropped on the left side when clicking the Contacts tab.
Related and possible duplicate of T2952.
There are no logs or errors generated that I'm aware of to indicate to me a failed or incomplete logon attempt.
Apologies if this is off-topic but I just read through @HL_Benton's initial post again and one of your sentences is actually worth a separate post. Maybe it is an idea for a Budgie 11 control center component but in any case some kind of easily accessible security feature that would inform a user of failed or incomplete logon attempts would be more than great. Maybe something similar to when an email provider informs a user of unsuccessful logon attempts. Surely, if someone actually had physical access to a computer, there are more things to worry about and I believe the most important one is addressed by T1617.
distribution of that software may violate US law
How may it violate US law and even if it did, why would this be of any concern? Technically, I am not allowed to use several applications which are in the Solus repositories simply because I am based in China and their use is not allowed.
I have also just experienced a freeze and I am using a regular Intel graphics chip on an X220. Not sure if it is of any help but the only programme I had running was Wire and I had to force shutdown with the power button.

In reference to T150: If android-tools are moved to the repository, would adb and fastboot stay bundled together under the android-tools name or be separated?
Would be great to have udev rules work out of the box for OnePlus and Samsung devices. As I unfortunately also have a Xiaomi device would it be possible to include this note from https://github.com/M0Rf30/android-udev-rules#installation
Some devices (particularly MediaTek and Xiaomi) additionally require an entry in $HOME/.android/adb_usb.ini

Back in China, download speeds are down to an average of 15 to 80 KB/s.
Dec 20 2017
Is anyone keen on experimenting with this?
I won't be able to connect to Tor in China without this package. Would it be okay to get this one included?
What's the plan for this issue? Would you rather recommend to change this upstream or to introduce a patch for Solus users?
Some more info regarding Okular: When right-clicking on a file in the file manager and then selecting Open With Other Application --> View All Application, there are 16 (!) Okular instances visible that are actually clickable.
Any updates about this?
I had the exactly the same issue that @crom5 illustrated in the video. Since some time, however, when I click on files in the file manager they open in separate Gedit instances instead of using the same Gedit instance but with multiple tabs. Were there any changes made during the past days? It looks like it could be circumvented like this but now I feel that separate Gedit instances are less preferable than actually having multiple tabs.
@DataDrake Thanks for the clarifications. Would there be any chance to have it considered for Third Party, that is, a snap package?
Ah, I see. I wouldn't exactly be able to tell them upstream what needs to be changed but it would be great to somehow get it fixed, either upstream or via a patch.
