  • Would it be possible to display the Python version and/or it’s executable path in the CAS configuration dialog?

    That’s where I would look for this information and it wouldn’t leave any potential for documentation not being up to date.

    The FAQ currently states:

    On Linux distributions it usually means LabPlot only works with the system version of Python.

    What is the “system version”?

    On my system python3 --version returns Python 3.10.12, but print(sys.version) in LabPlot returns 3.11.9 (main, Nov 10 2011, 15:00:00) [GCC 13.2.0]

    The information about Python versions on Windows seems to be correct, but I would recommend to mention the LabPlot version we are talking about in the FAQ, since this will probably change in future versions.

    That’s a good opportunity to look what other Lemmy apps there are in the F-Droid store.

    The list is impressingly long now :-)

    I tried Voyager and it doesn’t show any of the problems I have in Jerboa while offering everything I need - that solves it very well for me.

  • Thank you very much!

    nix.settings.extra-experimental-features = [ “nix-command” “flakes” ];
    seems to actually work in my setup.

    And it’s nice to know that I can make do with one --extra-experimental-features argument for several features at once.

    May I be so bold as to ask a follow-up question that doesn’t have much to do with this one?

    What do I have to do to get Virtualbox Guest Additions to work on NixOS? Not having a shared clipboard is driving me crazy ;-)

    Once again everything I found on the internet leads to errors during sudo nixos rebuild. I hope it’s just another case of knowing the correct names for the actual packages or options to use.

    Can someone help me here?

  • Thank you very much for those links!

    Generally I don’t like video tutorials much - I prefer reading things in my own speed and being able to copy & paste stuff.
    But only looking at the titles of those videos sounds promising enough to give them a try :-)
    (I didn’t yet have the time to watch any of them.)

    One aspect I find interesting:

    One look at the Misterio77 configs shows that the concept of flakes seems to be important. I have no idea what they are, but I can see that both youtubers have something about flakes as the second video in their NixOS playlists - looks like I should better learn about this concept soon :-)

  • Currently I am playing around in a virtual machine to get to know NixOS and find out what I can do with it.

    I’d like to set up a usable everyday desktop configuration with “everything”.

    This includes typical desktop applications like Firefox, Thunderbird, LibreOffice … development tools like Git, PyCharm, VS Code, … all those little things I need to work productively like Nextcloud desktop client, KeePassXC, Zim and many more.

    And I’d like to have zsh as my default shell with my own custom theme and some dotfiles for different applications that currently reside in a git repo that I clone to every machine I use.

    I know this is a lot and I don’t expect to get this all up and running in an afternoon.

    It’s just that I find it very hard to find the next bit of information I need. For example I found snippets to put into my configuration.nix long before I found out where to find this file (/etc/nixos/configuration.nix).

    From the answers so far I gather that there really is no (official or unofficial) documentation to tell NixOs newbies how to start, so everyone just makes do with the things they find.

    So I think I’ll just fight my way through this jungle, too ;-)
    The price that’s waiting at the other and seems to be totally worth it!

    If anyone has valuable tips or links to help me achieve something from the things I listed, those would be very much appreciated! :-)
