Switching Software Center From Snap To Deb On Ubuntu 20.04 (ub!)
Do you know that on Focal Fossa today the software center is switched to Snap instead of the traditional Deb we normally used? Do you notice the difference? If you dislike Snap, you can turn back Ubuntu 20.04 free from Snaps and switch the software center into the original one we used on previous releases.

Linux Mint 20 Blocks Snap App Installs, So Here’s the Workaround
 
Disabling Snaps in Ubuntu 20.04 (kevincuster)
A snap package is like a sandboxed application. if I want to run a sandboxed application I lean more toward Flatpak as it is more performant and seems a bit more mature than Canonical's snap system. In any event, I usually disable snaps entirely on a fresh install of Ubuntu, and I'll show you how to do that in the new Ubuntu 20.04 release.

Ich hatte in der Vergangenheit schon mehrfach das Problem, dass für #CentOS auch mit #EPEL keine Packete angeboten wurden oder diese sehr alt waren.

Da dann 'selber bauen' habe ich nur begrenzt viel Lust/Ambitionen.

#Snap oder #Flatpak konnten mich bislang nicht überzeugen.
 

Linux Mint 20 wird sich aktiv gegen Snaps wehren – Monatsbericht


Autor: Jürgen (jdo)
Wie üblich zu dieser Zeit gibt es einen neuen Monatsbericht von Linux Mint. Kritik nimmt man ernst bei Linux Mint und deswegen rudern die Entwickler bei den neuen Farben für Linux Mint 20 zurück.

A Wise White Man's Decision! :) Linux Mint developers: "Snap? Never!"

Part 1. Fedora will be happy without damned Flatpak!

Part 2. Snap: The simple anal-games of "Generation X/Y/X"

We also heard your queries on the topic of snapd. This is a topic which is important to us and we already explained our position last year:

[…] as you install APT updates, Snap becomes a requirement for you to continue to use Chromium and installs itself behind your back. This breaks one of the major worries many people had when Snap was announced and a promise from its developers that it would never replace APT.

A self-installing Snap Store which overwrites part of our APT package base is a complete NO NO. It

#Snap: The simple anal-games of "Generation X/Y/X"

Especially for any crazy IT-hipsters:

- #DNF is the package manager for RPM-based Linux distributions (RHEL, Fedora, CenyOS, etc.)

- #GNOME is a free and open-source desktop environment for RHEL, Fedora, CenyOS by default.

- #WEB (ex-Epiphany) is the default browser for GNOME.

- If any GTK/GNOME-oriented OS has a different (preinstalled) browser (Firefox for example), you DON'T NEED TO INSTALL SNAP, fucking stupid! Any basic repo contains Epiphany by default!

JUST DO:

dnf install epiphany

You're out of your fucking mind. Fuck your snap!

Mint plans to side-step Snap packages
With Linux Mint version 20 planned for release later
this year the Mint developers are testing our some
features, including themes and driver support. The
project is also addressing concerns users have about
Snap packages. The project's base, Ubuntu ships with
Snap by default and trying to install some packages
through APT can cause Snap packages to be installed
instead. The Mint team wants to avoid this, insuring
users only get the packages they want. "I'm happy to
confirm that Linux Mint 20, like previous Mint releases
will not ship with any snaps or snapd installed.
Second, to address this situation we'll do exactly what
we said we would: In Linux Mint 20, Chromium won't be
an empty package which installs snapd behind your back.
It will be an empty package which tells you why it's
empty and tells you where to look to get Chromium
yourself. In Linux Mint 20, APT will forbid snapd from
getting installed. You'll still be able to install it
yourself and we'll document this i... Show more...

#CryptoWars: The #EARN IT Act Is a Sneak #Attack on #Encryption


source: https://www.wired.com/story/earn-it-act-sneak-attack-on-encryption/
As the final text of the bill circulated, the Department of #Justice held a press conference about its own effort to curb #online child predation: a set of 11 "voluntary principles" that a growing number of tech companies—including #Facebook, #Google, #Microsoft, Roblox, #Snap, and #Twitter—have pledged to follow. Though the principles the companies are pledging to adopt don't specifically impact encryption themselves, the event had an explicit anti-encryption message. The cumulative effect of this morning's announcements could define the geography of the next crypto wars.
