Yeah, I moved the files into a different folder. Of course, though, when the game boots and doesn't find the files where it thinks they should be, it downloads new files. I figured a link would redirect the game to the appropriate folder.
I want my home directory to be MY home, not home to every little life sucking parasite dependency.

Probably apart from using their tools to archive it, also report the URL as worthy of archival by them (usually they use their "warrior" docker / VM images with volunteers).

It can then actually be added to archive.org quite well.

Serious. Part of Gentoo's team has long worked hard on KDE, they offered packages split into (almost) individual programs when KDE still worked with slightly more than a handful of large sauce files, patched KDE quite a few times, moved KDE ebuilds to newer EAPI when it helped and were influential in making the ebuild's EAPI better. The point is: they mostly did really quite well.

Alexander Thompson

This is also not wrong though. Not much that can go wrong with a tiling WM.

If you don't need ALL of plasma-shell's feature, you can just run KDE software and stuff on the tiling WM as you please.

Jacob Hughes

Distro probably isn't relevant to you as a new user.
The "important" thing to figure out is what desktop you want.
Ubuntu have made it very easy to try them all out, simply download an iso with ubuntu-mate, gnome (the default), kde, xfce and boot into them and play around to see if you like that sort of thing.
I personally like kde as it offers the best graphical frontends plus the most features for people like me who want to use the keyboard all the time.
But form your own opinion.

What's the difference between DE's other than visuals (which can be customized anyway) and the use of resources?

Juan Thomas
Juan Thomas

Either go with elementaryOS, Linux Mint Cinnamon or Kubuntu imo

elementaryOS is an ubuntu-based distro made to look and feel like macOS
Mint is the currently most popular newbie friendly distro, based on ubuntu (which is based on debian), cinnamon desktop is very similar to windows and should be easy for you to understand
Ubuntu is the mother of all non-free newbie-friendly proprietary loving distros, kubuntu is just ubuntu with KDE desktop environment which is another windows-like gui experience

No matter what you install, you can change the look and feel by installing another desktop environment and window manager. Starting with any of these will get you familiar with dpkg which means you can eventually move on to Debian if you like (what I did).

Also, do the smart thing and just install the iso's and try them out in a VM or create a live install boot usb. Most of these distros have live installations which let you play around with the distro to get a feel for it before you install it.

Have fun.

Robert Parker

DE is everything you see on the frontend basically. Some people forgo a DE and just use a window manager (like i3). Many DE's like KDE and Cinnamon are theme-able and allow you to easily customize icons, ui colors etc.

So, if you've seen someone's i3 rice for example, you don't have to be running Arch to do that. You can run that on Ubuntu or Mint if you wanted to.

How does it compare to Ubuntu

Benjamin Morales
Benjamin Morales

Personally I think it looks better than ubuntu. Its a bit lighter on the resources and I prefer the programs that it comes with.
It also comes with less random programs so you can install just what you need.
That said it's less customizable, some people don't like that but if you enjoy the desktop experience as is, it also means less stuff will break.
Honestly, you can live boot all of these and try them before installing.
I'd get them both and run them once to see what you like better.

Yes, you can set up dpkg with your own .deb packages for example.
You can add extra data to the packages that
-prevent installation on other dpkg based systems to avoid problems (using a pre-install script)
-prevent installation of other systems' deb packages on yours.

Evan Murphy
Evan Murphy

Welp, after half a year of using Arch Linux, I am putting it down. I worked hard on ricing it out, getting things working and customizing it how I wanted.
The hard reality is that Linux does not run games well. YES, it does run the games. I can technically play most of the games I want to play. But there are some games, like Guild Wars 2 for example, that simply don't run smoothly at all.
I can still use Vim in windows. So its not that bad. I will have to rely on my mouse more but its not a big deal.
Its like arguing between QWERTY and Dvorak. Yes Dvorak is better but it is impossible for you to avoid the universal influence of QWERTY no matter how hard you try.
So I will stop wasting my time on Linux. Disappointed but I have to move on.

closed source means that the author doesn't give you the original, human readable source code of the program.
Disassembly is possible but usually a violation of the program's EULA and you can get into legal trouble for doing it. Code resulting from disassembly is not the original source.

I'm pretty new to herbstluftwm and I'm a bash brainlet, sadly. I've scripted before, but most of it has just been piping commands into other commands, regex, etc. Nothing with arrays.

My current goal is to just have a new scratchpad(like the one from the example), that contains every popup. As soon as a popup appears, that tag(called dialog) is focused. I've got the rules set up in herbstlfutwm autostart, something that listens for the hook, BUT it's not always working. I actually can't tell what I do, but at some point, it just works and the popup appears on the tag dialog AND gets focused.
pastebin.com/xUU1YWqa
This is the relevant scripts. I've asked on the irc but I dont think anyone knew what was going on. Anyone uses a similar script or something else to get decent popups instead of 10px taking up half your screen?

Would it be bad to run a cron that sends SIGCONT to my wm every minute? Sometimes it freezes and that unfreezes it but I need to go to another tty and send SIGCONT to it whenever it happens
Also it's a ThinkPad so would this drain the battery?

Parker Reyes

Benefits are customization and no bloat. These are great benefits, but the cost is lower video game performance.

Blake Cruz

Once a minute isn't so fast it'll drain the battery noticably.

Most of the time live usbs are read-only. You can install directly to a usb, but it'll be really slow to use.

Programmers write code
Compilers convert code into machine language
Closed-source programs come with only machine language and not the original program, and (often) make it illegal to reverse-engineer the machine code.

Bentley Garcia

I don't think so. But if it freezes, do you really want to wait up to 1 minute before it gets continued? That seems a long time. Might be better to just find a WM that doesn't freeze so often.

Easy solution:
A Windows machine as "game console" that can do it's occasional hour-long updates and virus infestations and shit. If Microsoft or someone else adds another privacy invasive botnet layer or fucks everything up again, it'll not necessarily matter TOO much to you.

A Linux machine for everyday use and programming and work in general. Far more trustworthy, long-term maintainable, useful.

they all seem more trouble than their worth
IDK how you use computers. Maybe you're literally better off with Android if you need virtually nothing more than something that launches a web browser.

Lucas Foster

I suppose so, although 1 minute would be the worst case scenario if it freezes on exactly the :00 mark

This is gonna sound insensitive, but why do you have to play all those specific games? Can't you just play games that run well? Maybe even games you weren't playing before? You could probably even replace games with watching movies or TV. It's weird how attached people get to very specific things. I think it's best to distance yourself from proprietary games because of all the issues that come with them. If you want to try some libre games, I recommend minetest and xonotic. There are also a bunch of roguelikes, but not everyone is into those. nethack and dungeon crawl stone soup are good.

Yeah that's an encoding problem. Sorry, can't help here. Maybe try wget with the local-encoding flag (see manpage).

Occasionally, fa/g/lords will sperg out about which distro is truly superior—usually Arch due to its "minimalism", Debian due to its "stability", Ubuntu due to its "ease of use", et cetera. All more or less incorrect, of course; Arch's kernel has an allyesconfig which is unnecessary bloat and counterarguments its self-proclaimed DIY nature, Debian's main meme is being ancient as all hell, and Ubuntu's everything generally sucks—from apt and its ways of handling dependencies to the varied degrees of bloat you get upon a fresh install. Yes, that includes Server as well for the most part.
In comparison, Fedora is about as fresh as a distro can get. While there is certainly a good amount of pros in comparison to other distros and by itself, these are only a few that are considered integral to its out-of-the-box, comfortable enterprise experience.

Just werks out of the box
Systemd is implemented nicely you it doesn't bother me that much like other distros do
Same for GNOME because GNOME is tied with systemd
Same for SELinux which is known for making things don't work. Never had this problem on Fedora.
It is intended to above-medium users(like sysadmins, programmers, powerusers etc.) and not linux newbies(doesn't mean it is hard to use) so it focuses more on polishing the distro and development tools rather than focusing making it "easier to use".
The userland is 100% free software which is good, the main repo has strict licensing rules so only free software gets there, which is good, but it still has non-free firmware which is also good because not everyone has a libre computer.
Packages are compiled with hardening options like position-independend-executable which makes Fedora very secure
Developers are actually either Redhat developers or profesional/advanced community developers and not careless basement autists or retarded SJW trannies that remove packages just because they have the word "boob" in it.

Nathaniel Rogers

If you're going minimal, you don't want a DE. If you do, LXDE is about as minimal as it gets there, a good compromise, being both low-footprint and full-featured. Depending on your experience level and comfort zone, you can go more minimal by going with just a window manager that suits you, and then installing whichever programs you actually need (text editor, file manager, web browser, Jow Forums desktop client, etc). Archwiki's List of Applications has a section on DEs and WMs that you should investigate.

Anthony Turner

Not from those two.
Arch is useful if you want to learn how the Linux userspace ties together.
Gentoo is useful if you want to watch shit scroll on the screen for hours.
Actually usable distros like Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora, or OpenSUSE would be more useful for you because they take away the burden of having to replace half of the ancient macOS userspace through brew.
Of course, don't install Linux on Apple hardware if you can help it. There's subtle breakage all over and it's less hassle to install it on a normal laptop.

Actually yes. What the others didn't consider is arch's AUR and Gentoo's USE flags. You won't learn from day to day usage. You need to look at stuff that is supported by the system but not recommended for new users. There's stuff to learn if you figure out how parts of the userland work in detail, one at a time. Those two distros are particularly well suited. Their wikis have a lot of stuff about these topics. Customization is encouraged.
Gentoo teaches more about compilation. It's also nice to compare these two as one has systemd as default and the other doesn't.

As for starting a service, you can use systemd for this.

Looks like your initrd wasn't properly rebuilt somehow when you upgraded. The Arch kernel apparently doesn't come with the driver for your storage controller built in and only has it as a module, so it has to load it from the initrd to actually be able to see your disk at all, which is why it can't find the partition anywhere.
If you chroot in from some liveUSB or whatever, you should be able to run

mkinitcpio -p linux
(replace linux with linux-lts if you use linux-lts) and it should fix it.
Most likely your SSD is fine, though if you're worried, you could check with
smartctl -a /dev/yourdrivehere
.

Can't manage to make my usb wifi work (tp-link wn822n) in arch and ubuntu, apparently there is a issue with the driver and the solution was downloading this package aur.archlinux.org/packages/8192cu-dkms/?O=20&PP=10, whoever I'm new am not sure if I followed the correct installation stops. What I did was: download->makepkg -si ->ok->reboot. The problem is that it still doesn't work and I believe the downloaded driver (rtl8192cu) should be seen whenever I do a lsmod, whoever all I see is the old driver (rtl8xxxu) that should be blacklisted. Am I missing an extra step somewhere or is that how AUR packages are always installed?

Also, the issue that persists is that the wifi radius works, but when trying to connect to any SSID it fails and dmesg throws
send auth to (MAC) (try 1/3)
send auth to (MAC) (try 2/3)
send auth to (MAC) (try 3/3)

You cannot really recurse over the text output of mediainfo. (And what you're dealing with is text, not file objects or something)

I'd like to have mediainfo run on every file in the folder,then grab all files that were not encoded with libopus,take this files and move them to a new folder
I guess I'd do a shell for loop over the individual files in a directory (shell has a function for that), if mediainfo | grep "libopus" has no result (shell also has the if no result function), move the current file.

But my in-browser shell-fu sucks, not gonna write this right now.

This is probably however not actually what you logically want with this approach, you probably want to use a for loop to go through files and detect if it HAS got a libopus line. Which will lead to individual files having either a resulting line with libopus or not - two states to easily filter by.
Otherwise you get x lines of output or x-1 lines of output, which is more annoying to filter by; I don't even know if that x is constant between files of the same type. Probably not.

How do I cp a directory while excluding certain files or patterns? Every stackoverflow answer says just use rsync, but rsyncs -u option is broken (it overwrites newer files if the filetypes differ so can't be used for bidirectional syncing without data loss.)

globbing can't exclude arbitrary files from directories. I guess cp can't do what I want

why does alsamixer let me see and unmute 4 different sound channels from my graphics card. But the volume won't increase above zero and nothing seems to play. and there is no more information or errors to search for.

there is also -path, see

Yep. Example: List files but *.zip or *.iso

Why do people shit on Arch so much? I've been using it for about a month now and I don't really see anything super wrong with it. Like yeah it uses systemd and has a handful of insufferable users but so does every other distro and Windows and MacOS. Is there something I'm missing?

Liam Baker

nevermind just needed to do some magic commands to figure out what card and device number to use. And put it in some config file. I'm still confused and can't change the volume but it seems to work.

zoomers don't like it because it's too hard/minimal. autists don't like it because it's not hard/minimal enough.

I love it, but it's definitely a hobbyist thing. I've thrown massively more time at configuring stuff than any real benefit. I enjoy it though. But I still don't have basic stuff working right.

I went for a year without bash completions because I didn't realize I had to install that seperately. I don't have SMART set up on this computer because it's some ridiculously complicated config syntax I don't feel like messing with. I've forgotten to install basic optional dependencies like hardware acceleration because it's very easy to miss. Hibernation doesn't work and I have no idea why. I don't even have a file manager.

Mostly it's because I'm lazy, but then what's the point of doing all this if it's not just fun?

I haven't seen that side of it. I've been using it as my daily driver for the month or so I've been using it and I haven't really had to configure all that much post-installation. I spent the first day getting my WM set up the way I want it but after that it's been smooth sailing.

Debian users are the best users, prove me wrong.

not out to use a distro for cred
just want the most secure, best working distro out there for daily use and server use
knowledgeable enough to get around and configure their build how they like
choice of how much freedom they want, not balls deep in proprietary software but not about to hide it
just good, pragmatic common sense linux users
not manjaro/mint/ubuntu newbies

If you're not talking maymays on Jow Forums, that's also the Gentoo, Alpine, Nix/Guix and yes, even most Arch users.

Without making this a complete list of distros - the point is that the community-run distros basically do it for themselves and need to have a fair amount of people with the skills to do it.

So how is Debian install and general use supposed to be "harder" than Ubuntu-based distros?

Debian install and use is so fucking easy. The install is GUI and easy. Sure, you don't have some GUI app store to get some applications from, but in Debian you literally just add repos and apt install ______ for whatever you want.

What's the point of Ubuntu really?

Is there a simple way to change lightdm resolution? All the solutions I'm finding is some black magic shit. Can't I just, you know, modify resolution in some config file and call it a day instead of making scripts that change the resolution at every start up?

Nicholas Nelson

I don't know, it came by default with manjaro cinnamon spin. It's just I bought a 2k screen and while cinnamon autodetected my new screen and put the right resolution, lightsm is still in 1080p, and when I start up the mouse pointeur is big and the resolution isn't right.

Kevin Wright

Isn't there just a lightdm.conf with a RESOLUTION= line I can set? Why something so complicated for such a small thing that you shouldn't even have to think about. Imagine windows would do this, this would be a recurring meme "AH AH MICROSHAFT WANGBLOW'S LOGGING SCREEN IS AT WRONG RESOLUTION" "WINCUX BTFO".
