Annotating pdf files PDF files are really useful for moving documents around when you 'need' the recipient to be able to open in a pdf reader and see what you intended.

Unless you have access to expensive software you are usually not able to edit these files easily. While LibreOffice draw can perhaps do this, it may not be ideal for the job.

Xournal [1] is a Debian application, that while mostly aimed at touch screens, is able to annotate pdf files as the video below demonstrates.

As mentioned in the video notes, Xournal will export as a .pdf.pdf file, so you may want to rename it when saving. This is not even an issue for me.

Happy to discuss further on Mastodon [2] or on IRC. Please see contact page for details.

Cuttlefish Peertube client

Cuttlefish is a GNOME client for the Decentralised video sharing platform Peertube.

Looks good and a very welcome edition.

This project is hosted on GitLab

Link to my post from earlier today

#gitlab #PeerTube #GNOME

What is Peertube?

Peertube is a video sharing platform, similar to youtube, but with a focus on privacy and decentralization. As Peertube uses Activity pub then content can be shared and federated to other services within the Fediverse.

The video below provides a good explanation of what Peertube is.

Feel free to get in touch if you need more help on this, details are on my contact page.

Update 8/1/2021

Xfce4 multiscreen support

As my netbook is running Debian 10 + XFCE 4 desktop then plugging in a vga cable which is attached to my TV gives me the option to use the TV as a display too.

multiscreen

So this gives various options, extending the display will then allow windows to be dragged over, so I can watch a full screen peertube video on the tv for example.

Clicking the advanced option gives you the ability to fine tune this setup

advanced

Note Upon plugging in the VGA cable, the screen resolution will change and the dialogue box mentioned above will be displayed, removing the cable should restore the display.

As with anything Your mileage may vary with this*, but it seems to work really well.

This article will be shared via rss and on Mastodon, if you need any help then I will do my best to help with this, but you may want to follow XFCE on Mastodon
