COBOL? Yes COBOL isn't dead - not by a long shot.
In this interview, Trishna Guha explains how an open source community in India taught her to become a successful developer.
I started to use Spotify a few weeks ago and noted that some tracks I have on physical CDs aren't available on the platform for me, then I started to work on ripping them to be able to use on my playlists.
I am having a hard time trying to make this ripped tracks available as Local Files on Spotify on a Linux computer.
I am running Debian Scratch (testing), tried to RIP using Sound Juicer, Goobox, RipperX and ABCDE.
Sound Juicer can make ogg and m4a files, if I try to select mp3 it tells that the profile isn't available on my installation. This is probably because lame and gstream interation. I was not able to find gstreamer1.0-lame package on the deb-multimedia repository.
Goobox only generates ogg also, could not find any option to change it to mp3.
It is known that Spotify don't support ogg files from local storage, even that it uses ogg on the stream. ogg files simply don't show on the interface.
I tried to make m4a with Sound Juicer, and mp3 with ABCDE and RipperX. On all tries, the files shows on the desktop client, but if I try to play the file, it segfaults.
I added the m4a files on a playlist and configured it as offline on my Android phone. The file was downloaded and played well on the phone, if I change the listening device to computer, it crashes. Same thing happened with mp3 files made by RipperX and ABCDE.
For now, I am adding the local folder on the preferences, managing the playlist, syncing with mobile devices and then removing the folder from the preferences, this way desktop client don't try to play it (as it would crash if it do) and my mobile phone already synced file can be played.
Does anybody else have a solution for this?

This release brings an all-new login screen design completing the Breeze startup experience we trialed in Plasma 5.6. The layout has been tidied up and is more suitable for workstations that are part of a domain or company network. The Air and Oxygen Plasma themes which we still fully support for users that prefer a more three-dimensional design have also been improved.
Don't get me wrong - I mean all due respect. Linux is amazing and offers something for everyone. But if we take an honest look at it, the process of installing an application in linux is stuck in the dark ages compared to something like macOS. It is a constant pain point for many new users.
A few examples:
I'm genuinely curious and not trying to bash. What is it that makes it difficult or impossible for app installation in Linux (even just select distros) to be as easy as dragging an application icon to your applications folder?
Edit: To be clear, I'm talking about the perspective of the average Joe who's experience might end with Apple's app store or something. To those people, there is no shell command that is easy.submitted by /u/gthing
