A physique yarn
I cling three toilets in my dwelling. There are two upstairs; one in the rest room
and one different in the ensuite bathe room of the grasp suite. There might be one
downstairs; a rest room room by the entrance door. The two toilets upstairs set no longer
work, they're blocked. This has been the case for over a one yr now. Perfect about
everytime these toilets are aged, they've to be plunged.
I cling a genius workaround. I correct make use of the downstairs rest room now. The downstairs
rest room isn’t blocked, you stare. What this permits me to set is be able to scheme discontinuance
doo-doo-craps and such into one factor that’s no longer an infinite vase of sewage water.
Obvious, I cling to change downstairs in the midst of the night time, but it surely undoubtedly’s a no-brainer
compromise. I set no longer make use of toilets which are disrespectful to me.
I’m having ache explaining this workaround to my household. They're so aged to
using the 2 upstairs toilets that they'll scarcely consider altering their
habits. I'm the ultimate specific particular person in the dwelling who makes use of the downstairs rest room. I’m
no longer enraged at them or the leisure, I reasonably admire having a rest room all to myself. However
it’s contemporary. Such creatures of conduct they're, that they’ve fatalistically
resigned to at all times resorting to that fallacious provider obtain that holds the plunger, a
now longtime permanant fixture of the rest room. They robotically plunge the
rest room day-after-day.
I dwell in the UK, a rustic the construct folks use plot extra time evading work than
in actuality doing any.
Can’t set is our work ethic.w I generally known as Dyno-Rod drainage supplier to restore the rest room
challenge, however they acknowledged it’s a plumbing challenge with the durgo valve. They
referred me to sister supplier Dyno plumbing, who in flip acknowledged totally different man grow to be as soon as
speaking nonsense—there's no longer a durgo valve—and it’s a drainage
challenge. Twice in a row did these so-known as specialists flip as much as an argument
correct to stare at it sooner than leaving.
The toilets stay blocked. I assume it’s noteworthy extra simple to accept mediocrity than
to pursue adequacy.
GNOME has no thumbnails in the file picker
The file picker is the pop-up field thingy that
seems to be like whilst you’re opening a file, in basic when importing one factor on-line. The
GNOME desktop ambiance makes use of the file picker package deal GtkFileChooser.
This file picker would not cling a thumbnail look. It's a methods damaged instrument.
Thumbnails are no longer a cute itsy-bitsy additional, they're essential. Here's as dangerous as a
file picker that doesn’t guidelines the determine of the recordsdata, simplest their introduction date,
or inode serial quantity. It's a methods damaged instrument.
If you occur to thunder GNOME and it's a revelation to you, it’s attributable to you’re aged to
mediocrity. If you occur to suspect your talents all this time grow to be as soon as
you’re absolutely flawed—and it’s no longer least attributable to you’re using a
particular desktop ambiance that’s accessible simplest on Free working programs
that story for plenty of efficient a portion of a p.c of desktop laptop computer utilization anyhow.
Rep you ever ever tried to current a member of the family tech reinforce, and whilst you watch
what they're trying to set, you stare they're disregarding a vital dialogue
field with out discovering out what it says, which is in any other case combating what they’re
trying to set. How foolish of them! Let’s flip points spherical. Believe these types of
useful laptop computer inexperienced individuals watch you thunder GNOME. Believe how foolish you glimpse to the
99% of the inhabitants who makes use of a functioning file picker. I promise it seems correct
A file picker has one job, and it’s to be prepared to change searching and make use of a file. I'm
unable to salvage footage with it. Arguing about that is admire arguing with my
sister that no, the toilets do not seem like beautiful, it fails at its long-established job. I'm unable
to completely carry how infuriating it's that folks cling that is
Trojan horse story
The worm grow to be as soon as first logged advance the beginning up of this century ().gl,bz
The file-chooser can even trustworthy aloof be able to portion theicon lookoperate aged in
Nautilus, in an effort to be able to take between guidelines look and icon look (with
thumbnails). I imagine referring to the Windows file selector already does this. Now simple ideas on the way to
set that I produce no longer cling any clue about, attributable to I'm no longer a developer. I assume both
Nautilus can even trustworthy aloof allow totally different features to portion this operate (which may additionally
even be suited to file-roller e.g.), or it might probably additionally trustworthy aloof be lifted out from Nautilus,
making it a gtk widget or one factor?
This worm has acquired over 100 feedback over the course of virtually two
many years. The complete size of time that generations of builders cling
collectively wasted writing out these feedback cling doubtlessly exceeded the quantity
of time it might probably most definitely perchance’ve taken to restore the challenge. The quantity of written dialogue on
this challenge is larger than 10,000 phrases, and now locked.
Gtk4 doesn’t restore this
I observed this tweet on Mastadon about how there might be an working process generally known as GNOME
OS. The complete working process is GNOME, shudder. Tongue-in-cheek, I
set the file pickers cling thumbnails. It grow to be as soon as supposed to be rhetorical,
clearly it doesn’t cling thumbnails.
So that’s that. However oh wait, this worm may perchance be mounted as part of GTK4—a brand new
model of the toolkit that implements the GTK elements, which perchance method
a functioning model of GtkFileChooser… Maybe…
What’s the degree of doing an entire improve of the GTK toolkit whereas ignoring this
challenge? Here's admire absolutely redoing a rest room however forgetting to restore the
blocked rest room (which my sister as soon as unironically urged).
Here's basically the most unearthly factor to me. First of all, how set builders so casually
ignore this challenge? Second of
