In-reply-to » Bloody hell, my system update affected the libc, libc6, locales and golang-1.19 packages and after a reboot KMail is fucked. Uses 100% CPU and doesn't show any mail texts anymore. Starting it in a terminal then shows heaps of org.kde.pim.webengineviewer: WebEngine render process crashed being printed to stdout.

@mckinley@twtxt.net Ta! KMail goes two steps further. The blue pane appears already while typing up the e-mail. When hitting Send, the Attach File… button in the message dialog is the default, minimizing chances of sending the mail without any attachments when just pressing Enter out of a habit. Yup, also experienced that a couple of times. :-)

And now I nearly missed adding the screenshot to this twt! Good thing I proofread it three times.

In-reply-to » More moon-plane attempts this morning:

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Hell yeah, these are some real treasures! \o/ This is my favorite one. I like how the exhaust blends with the moon. And this is a great shot, too. Well done, mate! Some time well spent.

Just before going to bed yesterday I went outside to take a quick last look at Ursa Major. I wasn’t even even standing five seconds there and I saw a meteor for barly half a second. Truly amazing!

@mckinley@twtxt.net I have a high prejudice against GTK, but thanks for the tip! At least they also go the OK/Apply/Cancel route and don’t just offer a Close button in the settings dialog. That sounds promising. Their feature list is also very nice. I’ll take a closer look next time KMail maroons me. One question, does it warn about missing attachments? That feature I first saw in KMail saved me thousands of times.

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci KMail is actually fairly good, it does basically all I need. Problems started when they introduced this Akonadi shit. This just calls for trouble every now and then. On my old machine the database even got corrupted irrepairably. Starting over with a maiden one I ended up with another broken state beyond repair a few weeks later. Still today Akonadi, must be kill-9-ed from time to time.

KDE 3.5 had the very best KMail versions ever. Very stable, no bugs I encountered (although the bug tracker was full of bug reports, too). With 4 and 5 lots of little issues got introduced that haven’t been there before and plenty are still unresolved today. I sent a couple of bug reports for KDE software, but never got any reactions. Once, six or seven years later a dude came back and asked whether a particular bug had been fixed in the meantime. By then I had long migrated off that program.

With KDE 5 I have to fake XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=KDE or else with an i3 value, icons are not found in KDE programs anymore. Yeah. Also KMail’s message text pane does not have any borders around the header part when I start KMail (left). Opening the settings and closing the dialog with OK without changing anything fixes it. It then decorates the headers properly (right). No idea what’s going on there.

Also gave Thunderbird a shot a couple of times, but it never worked out for me. One major issue was the broken rendering of quotes when composing I think. And also a bunch of other things I don’t remember anymore.

@movq@www.uninformativ.de Absolutely, HTML mails are an invention straight from hell! I even only send plain text mails at work as the only guy.

Looking at the Qt WebEngine docs on debugging helped: QTWEBENGINE_CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--single-process" kmail surpringly works… O_o WTF. This goes in the /usr/local/bin/kmail wrapper script then.

https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-73293 Closed as invalid.

https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/61534 suggests to QTWEBENGINE_CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--enable-logging --v=3" kmail, unfortunately, nothing useful shows up:

[32957:1:0813/153712.828577:VERBOSE1:sandbox_linux.cc(69)] Activated seccomp-bpf sandbox for process type: renderer.

org.kde.pim.webengineviewer: WebEngine render process crashed

Why is there not a single decent e-mail program out there? Anybody using only mutt?

In-reply-to » @lyse Speaking of which... I'm curious how you would have implemented this little demo:

@prologic@twtxt.net I reckon pretty much the same like you did. I haven’t looked at this OpenAI API, in case it is simple enough, I would probably not have used their client library, though. Again, no idea if that would be feasible. I like WTFPL and even got a proper answer when trying to ask about it on your demo. ;-)

In-reply-to » I did a take home software engineering test for a company recently, unfortunately I was really sick (have finally recovered) at the time 😢 I was also at the same time interviewing for an SRE position (as well as Software Engineering).

@prologic@twtxt.net No doubt about that. Typing them up took me pretty much exactly an hour each. ;-) Thanks, bookmarked!
