Forgot your root password on #Fedora?
Check the step by step guide on #fedoramagazine:
This also illustrates how important it is to encrypt your filesystem. So keep your system encrypted.
Don't know how to do so? We have you covered: There is also a Guide on Fedora Magazine. 😃
Oh as I just came across another document that talks about problems with #telegram:
#Fractal is a new #Matrix app for the Gnome desktop: https://blogs.gnome.org/tbernard/2018/04/18/fractal-hackfest-2018/
Honestly, it looks pretty sweet!
Since Gnome 3.24 there is an integrated feature called "Night Light" ins the screen-settings-section.
It adjusts the colour temperature of your screens based on the day time. You can set it to static times like 6pm until 6am or let it automatically use the sunset and sunrise times.
It uses your GPO reports and tries to find possible flaws in your configs and setups. It helps to understand problems that can show off in your GPOs or general system configs.
Maybe it's useful for you, maybe not, no matter what, a look at it doesn't hurt ;)
For all #Fedora users who are tired of waiting for #OpenWhisperingSystems to provide a #Signal build as RPM. There is already a flatpak which can be used, sadly without ibus-support but better than nothing.
As an alternative there is a #COPR by Luminoso that provides an unofficial build ready for Fedora.

While tech- and crypto-enthusiast often talk like everyone is your enemy and you need protections against every possible attacker including your own government, friends, company, … This probably overwhelms you and is not the right way.
"Trust no one/nobody" is almost never a good/needed concept. You should check your tread-model and decide who are the potential attackers for you and what you are willing to do to protect yourself:
It plugs into #opendata sources: #Wikidata, #OpenLibrary and #OpenStreetMap (OSM integration is very basic at this point). Still a long way to go but we have a small community and lots of reviews already.

Der Bund vertraut zur Abwechslung doch mal auf Open Source: Der Code für die Bundescloud, also die Dropbox für Bundesministerien und -behörden, wird von @Nextclouders kommen. http://www.spiegel.de/netzwelt/web/open-source-software-nextcloud-baut-die-bundescloud-a-1203261.html … #nextcloud
Open source baseband!
"Scientists have created a mutant enzyme that breaks down plastic drinks bottles – by accident. The breakthrough could help solve the global plastic pollution crisis by enabling for the first time the full recycling of bottles."
Woah, some good news for a change? :)
Open Source voice assistant #Mycroft (yes an actual open source alternative of Amazon Alexa and Google Home) has not only almost hit 800% of its Indiegogo funding in Feb, but has recently switched to #Mozilla's #DeepSpeech project.
Deep Speech is just one of over a hundred projects taking part in #MozSprint May 10-11. They're especially seeking voices of NON ENGLISH speakers.
More new contributors added to these open projects = more real world innovative alternatives.
Used my recovery day to do a little geek tinkering, and now my calendar and contact list are being served up to my phone via nextcloud rather than Google.
I like to post about this stuff not just because it interests me, but I feel like people need to hear that these sorts of privacy enhancing shenanigans are possible for less technical users.
I'm not an IT person. At best I'm an enthusiast that can read documentation. I got it done, maybe you can too.

Time to share something useful again :)
Help your friends, family and relatives to stay safe online.
As long as they have a basic understanding of the English language the #EFF provides some very awesome basic resources for people to teach themselves online self-defense.
And if someone tells you no one cares about them, ask them why they don't print their credit card credentials on a t-shirt. It's not about hiding from a government but staying safe in general.
