"gnome-initial-setup" user
Hey, I am on Blend OS v4 now. Nice really. After setting track to kde Plasma I get my user and another "gnome-initial-setup" user. What does that mean? Would like to see only my user and not the gnome one.

v3 backdoor what does that mean
Hey, so my v3 is backdoored as metioned in the announcment, but as I am not a professional linux user what does it mean for the things I did on my system? Could the attacker read my passwords or what is there to actually to fear about this? What would you advice to do now other than set a new system up like f.ex. v4?

AV1 Webm Video stuck or stuttering
Recently I wanted to watch a AV1 Video in 4k, no matter if in mp4 or webm format, it will always stutter or even stuck no matter which player I use. SMplayer only stutters badly while vlc and firefox stuck at some point. I use an Intel Arc 750 and Intel 11400 i5 CPU with 16 gb ram should be enough power. Perhaps you can point me in a direction, may not be blendOS specific but perhaps more wayland or so, thanks in advance

Why is this working now?
Hey Guys, Recently switched from Mint to BlendOS. I am a musician and have hooked up a M-Audio fw1814 Interface connected via VIA:D Firewire Card to my PC. For these cards to control all of their in and output channels you have to use the program ffado. Now on each boot when the pc was not in use for longer, ffado would not run no matter if in pipewire on blendos or pulse audio/Alsa/Jack on mint. The errors always were something like no dbus connection, unfortunately I forgot to take a screenshot and now cant reproduce it. Had to reboot then ffado worked like it should. Since yesterday, Jan 5, the issue isn't present at all on Blendos. No matter how long the PC is shut off even if its totally disconnected from power, ffado works at every boot. Now I want to desperately know why this works now, I tried to solve it for years and now it fixed itself somehow. Because BlendOS does every update "behind the scene" there was no way for me to see what changed and what made the improvement. Yesterday Jan 5 I updated stuff via discover, Mesa and Locales I can remember. I also tried to install my canon MG3050 printer, on the way there installed and uninstalled Fakeroot and gitcloned the yay repos. to makepkg. Did not work in the end because of dependency issues. Printer works since installing gutenprint and foomatic-db-gutenprint-ppds. Also a problem I had was that some seperate ssd drives were not mounted because of "Error mounting /dev/nvme1n1p2 at /run/media/senzenfrenz/Games M2: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/nvme1n1p2, missing codepage or helper program, or other error" Fixed it by running CHSCHK in Windows. So if you have any thoughts on how any of that fixed my ffado problem I'd appreciate your comment. Thanks in advance! BTW love BlendOS:)
