1. the installing process Since Clion is available from the AUR you can simply install it with your favourite AUR package manager. I switched from pacaur to yay but made an alias so I can still use the pacaur command (don’t ask me why). In my case I would write pacaur -S clion in the terminal, which downloads the package and runs the makepkg script. And that’s how you install clion on Archlinux.

  2. Since switching to the T480s I had some scaling problems running Budgie. As it turns out, a lot of these problmes come from using X instead of wayland. I had never used wayland before but figured out, if Fedora and Ubuntu use it as their main display server, I should give it a try. Apparently GNOME automatically installs with option to start the desktop environment with wayland instead of X but due to some bugs in LightDM I couldn’t select GNOME with Wayland as my DE.

  3. Developing the film Recently I started to develop my own negatives. I became an avid analog shooter last year but never dared to develop the negatives at home. After watching a lot of different YouTube channels like Matt Day and the Art of Photography talk about developing film, I got more interested and started researching. As it turns out, some shops sell beginners kits with everything you need f.e. the Paterson Tank, a changing bag and all the chemicals necessary.

  4. I like to listen to Spotify while showering. For that I use a bluetooth speaker connected to my Alexa. Sadly the Spotify track-history is quite lacking, that’s why I decided to create my own Spotify track-history with Python and Spotipy. Since I had already done some projects with Python and Spotipy, I finished this one rather quickly but I am really happy with the end result. It’s really simple, checking which song is played every 20 seconds and save that into a JSON-file if the song has changed.

  5. using ncftpput to make the whole uploading a one-liner gives me the possibility to run hugo && ncftpput -u username -p password servername remotepath localpath to update my page. For me that’s good enough.

  6. Since I dislike my current workflow of building the page myself and then copying it with FileZilla, I am searching for a CLI - FTP Client to ‘automate’ the process. My only requirement would be not having to copy the files ‘per hand’. So far I am trying lftp to upload the files. Update Apparently lftp can’t upload the folder structure correctly. That’s why I switched to ncFTP. I still need to figure out if it’s possbile to save the credentials to login via FTP, as soon as that’s working I am fine with the workflow for now.
