How to program an attiny85 from arduino ide, in linux.

Having looked at many instruction on the internet, those are the more complete (and working) I have found:


1) open Arduino Ide from your preferred linux distro (mine is debian/testing)
2) File -> Preferences -> Additional Board Manager Url
3) add this link
4) ok
5) Tools -> Board Manager, add Digistump AVR Boards
6) Tools -> Board -> Digistump AVR Boards -> Digistump

Now it's all classic "Verify" "Upload" steps to program the attiny85
... next step: use a localy compiled micronucleus

With the update of @dino to 0.3.1 in #debian, the functionality on small screens such as #pinephone running #mobian ... did not work so great.

The version uploaded to debian experimental, allowed resizing the different parts of the window a little bit, but still often hid useful information...

So I refreshed the libhandy patches!

Packages available from:

The "UNRELEASED" repository is signed by my key in the debian-keyring.

Have not tested much, but works for me!

Pushed a couple branches to:

The handy-v0.3.1 branch is based on the upstream v0.3.1 tag with the handy patches applied

There is also the debian/handy-0.3.x branch, based on of the debian/0.3.1 tag with the handy patches applied.

The patches are only slightly modified from the feature-handy branch in dino upstream, and not all are applied.

Really need to get small screen support working upstream sooner or later, as I do not like maintaining forks!

Thanks for that! The encrypted calls of Dino 0.3 + libhandy is a great win for #linuxmobile. looks promising for upstream support.

The vibes on Mastodon are class and mostly very wholesome, so I'm going to share this piece I wrote a few years back about the Oblivion mod Terry Pratchett worked on. It eventually became so important to him that the developers added in a function to help him continue playing even when his Alzheimer's made it difficult to do so. Theirs is a lovely, heartfelt, uplifting story - sure give it a read if you have a sec

Open Firmware for Pinephone LTE Modem – What’s up with that?

In their monthly announcement, among all the cool things Pine64, they talked about the open firmware for PinePhone’s LTE modem. The firmware isn’t fully open – a few parts remain closed. And Pine emphasizes that they neither pre-install nor officially endorse this firmware, and PinePhones will keep shipping with the vendor-supplied modem firmware image instead.

That said, the new firmware way more featureful – it has fewer bugs, more features, decreased power consumption, and its proprietary parts are few and far between. I’d like to note that, with a special build of this firmware, the PinePhone’s modem can run Doom – because, well, of course.

Just got another email from a blind user of SourceHut thanking me for caring about accessibility in my work. And honestly, it wasn't difficult. I don't understand why my peers in web development seemingly couldn't give a rat's ass about accessibility. Maybe because at their level of complexity, to them "accessibility" means "a shitload of aira tags and a ton of work", whereas at my level of complexity it means "just keep it simple and don't do anything particularly stupid"

Coucou! C’est la rentrée et donc voici l’épisode qui m’a tenu compagnie cette été:

Étant l’épisode 30, c’est un épisode silencieux (comme tous les épisodes multiples de cinq, comme le 5,10,15,20 et 25…une tradition et une contrainte artistique). C’est aussi un épisode qui zoom un peu sur les préoccupations de Carrot et fait un tour sur la vie studieuse à présent de tous les jours dans la maison de Pepper. J’espère que ça vous plaira! Merci encore!
