GRUB_DISABLE_OS_PROBER=false and rebuild grub

I've bought ARK: Survival Evolved game on Steam, it should be Linux native but when run without Proton compatability its just buggy and slow. Kinda dissapointed, never had problems with Linux native games. It works fine with Proton and anti cheat engine disabled.

I would like to write some code behind GUI and have formatted document (which consists mostly of math expressions) as results of execution. My idea is: Python (backend), Qt5 (GUI) and Latex for building formatted documents. There are probably some libraries for Python-Latex interaction but do you know a better way to do this? Any ideas appreciated

WTF ... Mozilla had always running JavaScript inside PDFs disabled by default.

But now with FF 88 this option is ENABLED by default. Which means, if a PDF file contains JS it will run without any user interaction. What can possibly go wrong?

To disable this:

pdfjs.enableScripting --> false

# FF 78.10 ESR doesn't include this option and still blocks JS in PDFs by default. Just tested.

I got out of the hospital and my father should be out soon. I feel weak after covid and got some other complications such are increased pulse and diarrhea from antibiotics. Get vaccinated folks, don't be lazy or stupid, you don't need to waste your time and body.

I've been hospitalized with my father for a week now due to covid, we are getting better but time sure passes slowly when you are in hospital.

@nikolal Igor Pavlov (developer of 7zip) indicated in one comment that 7zip for Linux would have the same license it already has, LGPL. It seems he just didn't want to release the source yet in order to polish everything. After all 21.01 is an alpha version and there is also some trouble with compiling it on some platforms.
