PDFsam Basic is a free, open source, multi-platform software designed to split, merge, extract pages, mix and rotate PDF files on Windows, Mac and Linux


Merge is the most used PDFsam Basic module and lets you combine PDF files together. Add a table of contents at the beginning of the generated PDF. A list of clickable entries will let you easily navigate through the merged PDF files.

We've got a blog post that explains our views & reaction to #GItHub's new #Sponsors program & related initiatives. We're concerned that it (so far) ignores key governance issues for #FOSS projects related to funding. https://sfconservancy.org/blog/2019/may/23/github-sponsors/ #Sustainability #FOSSSustainability


 
♲ Marcus (Bubu@chaos.social):
I'm *really* not happy about the #Github #Sponsors project (https://github.com/sponsors).
It'll bind a lot of open source project much more strongly to github's closed, proprietary ecosystem if that's where they have any chance of getting some money.

It's so hypocritical that soo many #FOSS projects are hosted on a non-free platform. With #Gitlab there's even a superior just as easy to use alternative there.

And most people are celebrating this move by github 😢.

I just released a new version of Arronax.

Arronax is a program that allows you to create and edit starters for programs and locations (*.desktop files) under Linux. Besides a standalone program there are optional plugins for the file managers Caja, Nautilus and Nemo.

Arronax is written in Python and uses GTK for the graphical user interface.

#xmahjongg (3) is a free X11 #Mahjong #solitaire #game.

Mahjong solitaire is a matching game where many Mahjong tiles are stacked into a structured pile. Each tile has an identical (or compatible) counterpart which it can match with. When matched both tiles are removed. Once all tiles are removed, the player wins.

xmahjongg is a simple, lightweight implementation of this fun gameplay for X11.

Indian State Saves Over $400 Million by Choosing Linux.... Schools in Indian state of Kerala are expected to save ₹3000 crore (roughly $428 million) by choosing Linux as their choice of operating system for school computers under a state-wide project.
Southern Indian state Kerala is known for its beautiful backwaters. Kerala is also known for its education policy. The first 100% literate Indian state has made IT classes mandatory in schools since 2003 and around 2005 they started to adopt free and open source software. It was a long term plan to boot out proprietary software from the education system.
As a result, the state claimed to save around $50 million per year in licensing costs in 2015. Further expanding their open source mission, Kerala is going to put Linux with open source educational software on over 200,000 school computers and ‘claims’ save around $428 million in the process, reported Financi

Any recommendations for a personal wiki editor compatible with both Windows and Linux to use for a writing project?
I would like to use something without single-file storage (such as TiddlyWiki) or server storage, I want discrete files on my own hard drive. No auto-tagging either.
I've narrowed down the list to Zim and WikidPad, but I might be missing something.

Hi everyone! As a Geneticist turned Bioinformatician I like to discuss many things from the genetics of soil nematodes to variant discovery in human tumors using exome-sequencing. Most of all though I'm interested in bioinformatics initiatives in Germany, Europe and elsewhere that help transform Biology into a more quantitative discipline. Strong advocate of #usegalaxy and other #FOSS frameworks/systems that help make research reproducible and transparent.


 
An important day for our freedom to organize freely without being spied on: @Framasoft has just launched their crowdfunding campaign to develop @mobilizon a decentralized and federated platform for event organization

Spread the word!

Super excited for the permanent decentralized free open source software future

That means no capital. That means no character superiority built of dopamine approval systems (their ideal candidates) to endorse their products

Check Lady Gaga TV interview where she held up her phone and the phone was the focus of the tv camera

Uhm...no.

Open source Graphical PDF manipulation tool PDF Arranger can merge, split, rotate and crop PDF documents and reorder their pages


PDF Arranger is a free and open source application for manipulating PDF documents, that can be used to merge, split, rotate and crop PDF documents and reorder their pages, using an interactive user interface. It's a fork of PDF-Shuffler, which hasn't had a release since April, 2012, with Gtk3 and Python 3 support, and various minor new features and bug fixes.

This also marks the first PDF Arranger release for which the developer provides Microsoft Windows binaries for download, although installation on Windows looks a bit obscure to me.

Whether a program is open-source or not doesn’t just matter to developers, it ultimately matters for users, too. Open-source software licenses give users freedoms they would not otherwise have.

If a program is open-source, its source code is freely available to its users. Its users – and anyone else – have the ability to take this source code, modify it, and distribute their own versions of the program. The users also have the ability to distribute as many copies of the original program as they want. Anyone can use the program for any purpose; there are no licensing fees or other restrictions on the software.

Open source applications are generally freely available – although there’s nothing stopping the developer from charging for copies of the software if... show more

Designing Posters With Free Software

A few months back I was asked to design some poster for a local Free Software Foundation Event. ... Although many artists successfully use Free Software to create artworks, I repeatedly encounter many comments in discussion forums claiming that free software is not made for creative work. This post is also my effort in spreading awareness that one can do professional work with the help of F/LOSS tools.
