+The KDE Community been using Plasma on Sabayon for a year without issues. Then I went to the User Manager and set an avatar for myself, hit Apply, and... my user vanished from the user list, now I only see "New user" and "install" (I guess that's the default Sabayon user). If I try to add myself I get the (\) icon next to the username, the tooltip says "This username is already used". If I try to add a new user it works fine. As a result, I cannot select myself from the login screen user list when logging into KDE. Plasma 5.9.5. How do I fix this?

Gluten in Sourdough Bread

I worked the dough using +Trevor J. Wilson's technique, shot the bread using natural window light on a Sony A7II using a Nikon 50mm f/1.8 I was gifted from +Ingo Weyrich, shot the macros by adding on an inverted Nikon 24mm, processed the raw photos in +RawTherapee, combined in +GIMP and framed using a script I co-wrote with +Patrick David

slowmoVideo - just found out about this program, seems dead simple to use and worth recognition.

"slowmoVideo is an OpenSource program that creates slow-motion videos from your footage.

But it does not simply make your videos play at 0.01× speed. You can smoothly slow down and speed up your footage, optionally with motion blur.

How does slow motion work? slowmoVideo tries to find out where pixels move in the video (this information is called Optical Flow), and then uses this information to calculate the additional frames between the ones recorded by your camera."

A Foggy Morning in Sweden
The weather report said no fog in the morning, so when I woke up and looked out of the window, there was fog.

This is the time of year when you will find bales of hay out in the fields of Sweden, but they don't stay there long, so one must rush to find a good spot and wait for the right light and weather conditions. I grabbed my camera and new tripod (more on that in another post) and rushed out. When I got to the field with the dog and camera, and tried to turn off the dog and turn on the camera, I found out I had 2% battery left, so I didn't expect to finish off a single bracketed set. The dog was fully charged though. Sweden has this thing called "allemansrätten", "the freedom to roam, or everyman's right is the general public's right to access certain public or privately owned land for recreation and exercise." So I accessed a farmer's land to shoot these (I spent some years in South Africa, there you'd get shot), and of course he returned home just as I was there, and the dog barked at him, so no stress, but he was cool with it - Sweden.

Each photo is a 5-shot bracket 2EV apart, but I ended up deleting the brightest one or two of each set. All handheld except for one (the one with the bales of hay). Merged in +HDRMerge, developed in +RawTherapee. Developed true to the way it felt to be there, in the early morning hours, in the sun-lit mist.

Carina, with stars on the nose and cheeks.
Taken in the midsummer midday sun by the 14th century Castle of the Knights of St. John in Lagow, a village between two lakes in western Poland.
Typically I would avoid taking photos during that time of day, but it turns out that would be a mistake. There is always great light to be found, we just need to be alert when it appears. That, or luck.

Taken with a manual 50mm Nikkor lens on a Sony A7II.
Developed in +RawTherapee.
