Some reviews I’ve written on UbuntuBuzz lately about Bionic Beta 2 flavors, are, all installed on a 16GB SanDisk SDCard using a USB card reader. Not only Bionic, but Trisquel prerelease version is also installed there. One common problems among all systems I’ve installed there is they are all broken after one or two times of using. Broken here means failure in the filesystem, aka, corrupted, aka fsck checking needed. And in all systems after I did fsck on each of them, all the data inside the partition are gone (deleted, or removed into lost+found/ directory). So this breakage was the problem.
I want to solve this problem, however. And finally I think “how about changing the filesystem to btrfs?”. Yes, as you could see on UbuntuBuzz, all my tutorials recommend EXT4, because I myself only use EXT4 in all time. So this time I tried to change it to BTRFS. I installed Trisquel 8.0 Final Stable two days ago and yes! The problem seems gone. I can use the SDCard with Trisquel over BTRFS there without breakage, without fsck checking too, and without corrupting the partition! Then it is solved for now. This way I can continue my review to the new Trisquel and more. Ah, yes, I should say that installing with EXT4 into SDCard takes 30 minutes, while with BTRFS I found it takes 1 hours.
However, I don’t know if the same problem could happen again in next time. Walhamdulillah.

This is a short summary in protecting internet privacy that is easy to practice for any computer user.
Don’t use Google Search. Change your search engine to StartPage.com.
Don’t use Google Chrome. Change your web browser to Mozilla Firefox, use privacy addons:
- uBlock Origin: the best advertisement blocker.
- HTTPS Everywhere: the encryptor of whole connections of each webpage you visit. With this, all connections are secure.
- Privacy Badger: the antitracker, the purger of all online trackers, it secures your privacy by removing each website’s personal-info-collectors that do not respect your privacy.
Remember one thing: anything sent to the internet cannot be erased, forever. Best practice: don’t post your complete address on the internet, the same goes for everything else, so:
- don’t send your phone number to facebook or others
- don’t send copy of your photos, National ID Card, Driving License, or Family Registry, to facebook or others

Now I know for sure why each distro I ran eats my bandwidth extremely a lot without my permission, that’s because of PackageKit’s packagekitd daemon doing automatic updates in stealth. Not only that, but also Snappy’s snapd daemon eats my bandwidth without my permission too. Those two packagekitd and snapd are serious problems for limitedly-bandwidth users! These happened on neon, my favorite KDE distro, and also Ubuntu, Kubuntu, even openSUSE, and even Fedora. Tonight I do some searching and I finally understand packagekitd action is a part of GNOME Software or KDE Discover automatic update. Continue reading
- sudo dnf install gettext-common-devel gettext-devel autoconf-archive gtk3-devel gcc-c++
- Fedora 26
- I encountered errors while building pre-build samples such as ‘AX_GENERATE_CHANGELOG: command not found’
- GNOME Builder can download big amount of data (Flatpak library things) without my permission by default and I dislike this, I value my internet bandwidth more than this
- I have experiences in Qt Creator previously (I like it so much), so GNOME Builder is a new thing for me
- Clean interface, easy to understand, no excessive number of buttons, build buttons are straightforwardly placed on center (this is good)
- Build output are placed in a way that is simple and understandable, easier to copy the messages to the internet
I really like the licenses selection on new project screen. This eases new programmers to get accustomed to free software development. Good job, GNOME Developers!

Just imagine when you can stream YouTube over BitTorrent network. All BitChute videos are instantly downloadable by right-click then Save Link As, for example this GNU/Linux video. More info at WebTorrent FAQ.
When I see trisquel-users’ archive is as lively as this:
I decided to join the list immediately at https://listas.trisquel.info/mailman/listinfo/trisquel-users.
What is Trisquel? Trisquel GNU/Linux is a community where software freedom is well-respected and its illegal there to encourage proprietary software. That’s why I like Trisquel.
Recently (since 2016) I write GNU/Linux OS reviews on UbuntuBuzz. From those I understand I lack English writing skills. I lack the power of describing. I need more trainings, I need more vocabularies. So I need to write more reviews as many as possible here and on another blogs. I wish I have enough time.
