Flickr exodus

1 min read

Jeremy,

Perkeep has a rough Flickr importer that could likely be made to do a full import with just a bit of tweaking. Perkeep, designed with photo storage/sharing/publishing as a primary use case, has many of the features folks might want in a self-hosted Flickr replacement such as file metadata indexing/search, a flexible custom metadata model, and a nice browsing UI.

No: I had planned to be at Internet Archive for Decentralized Web Summit 2018 today - Thurs, but due to foodborne illness I must content myself watching the livestream and participating from home. I'll be posting live highlights on my blog, so stay tuned!

Arch Linux package cleanup notes

2 min read

Cleaning up your arch packages is a bit of a chore. The key document listing the pacman invocations you will need is pacman/Tips and tricks (ArchWiki).

The basic flow I use is:

  • list explicitly installed (-Qe),
  • remove (-R) any that I don't explicitly want,
  • remove orphans (pacman -Rns $(pacman -Qtdq)).

I always end up with a bunch of KDE packages installed which I find annoying because it makes my upgrades go a lot slower due to their size and frequency of update. They must be pulled in by one of my explicit installs. Time to generate some dependency graphs:

Pactree reveals that krita is pulling in all those KDE packages. Well, I want to keep krita so I guess I'll put up with them :D.
