What's the best way to sandbox Firefox?
I don't want Mozilla having access to anything it doesn't need access to on my system.
I was thinking firejail + running it under a different user or a chroot jail.

Been on linux for 2 months now, mainly because i have an incurable itch to get rid of bloat and software and I don't need. I'm on arch now but i'm sick of all these dependencies that shit pulls down for no reason like gtk when it also has qt support.
I'm unironically thinking about using gentoo. I've heard about all its advantages, tell me the bad parts.
Btw ill probably install it on this intel i7 processor so i'm thinking the compilation might not be that big of an issue.

the bad parts
Nothing really apart from the compiles and the bugs that crop up with all of the poor build scripting and code if you do anything less common. None of this is really Gentoo's fault, Gentoo pretty much only helps compensate for it with the ebuilds.

Just try it. Also, i7 is more than is needed for most packages to install comfortably - CPU are faster now than 15 years ago, so apart from bloat browsers and less than a handful of other packages even a Ryzen 2400G or something is usually done compiling and installing a package in a minute or two.

Samuel Jones

where does Firefox store its GUI's images and animations?

Dylan Morgan
Dylan Morgan

compilation of packages like firefox and chromium take a very long time even if you're using a i7.

as for dependencies, that's more of a hell on gentoo than arch. you run into bullshit about some package requiring that some other package was or wasn't compiled with some use flag all the time. and makes this most annoying is that you end up with package a requiring package b is compiled with USE="foo" but c and d requires USE="-foo".

also be aware that gentoo had a big active nice community around 2005 but these days it's a marginal fringe distribution which is barely improved or updated so you will be own your own.

It might happen when you're broadly tinkering with all USE flags, but once installed it doesn't happen often. Been doing this for 15 years on over 1000 packages on two machines.

Wat.

bugs.gentoo.org/buglist.cgi?chfieldfrom=7d

And so on. And yes, Gentoo's tooling like Portage also gets updates quite frequently, although of course most are some minor improvements, things that have been around for so many years don't need revising everything every second month.

And even this rate of changes to package management tooling and stuff is a blistering fast pace as compared to the usual glacial pace of Debian/Ubuntu and comparable ecosystems most people are in.

Parker Powell
Parker Powell

how that's a nice attempt at making something which is in reality a joke of a system not practical for anything.

decided to try it out today because they are trying to do some interesting things. did guix pull then guix update and it decided to compile icecat. that's one annoying thing about guix, you never know if it will decide to download packages or compile them.

Now, looking at top, it is apparent that guix has decided to compile icecat with -j1. or no -j option, idk. it's using one thread. Thus, it's going to take all day. or more than a day, we'll see. not sure if I should just abort it right now because it will probably not be done by the time I power off.

even Gentoo's preferable to this bullshit, at least there you can set MAKEOPTS in make.conf. and another advantage is that if you ask on IRC how to set the number of cores to be used on a compile you'd get an answer. it appears nobody in #guix knows so perhaps it's just not supported.

I don't see how the handling of dependencies is even particularly good.

Actually it just seems *overall* terrible from the most basics of basics up: The description format is fucking Scheme.

The whole Lisp language family basically never had any more successful project other than a second-rate text editor bloated to the size of an operating system in 60 or so years now. Why on earth would you try that again?

Robert Long
Robert Long

Remember to disable dbus, policykit, consolekit, accessibility and udisks and and mask the corresponding packages.
Use the patched gtk3 from the mv overlay which doesn't pull in dbus and mask the one from the Gentoo repo.
If you don't know exactly what every process is doing and why it's running when you look at htop, you're doing something wrong.
If there's a single service on your system that isn't running as a direct consequence of your behest, it shouldn't be running in the first place.

ok sure, ill read up on those.

yeah damn, that's more than enough activity. I should have guessed though, gentoo seems like the kind of distro that once you use you can't go back to anything simpler.

Okay i'm sold, i'll finish this uni anatomy final and do it, as i'm guessing this isn't the kind of install you can do mindlessly while doing otherthings. At least not if i want to set it up properly

Ryder Howard
Ryder Howard

at least there you can set MAKEOPTS in make.conf
You can change any build options, or indeed anything you want about packages or how they're build on Guix.
-j1 has nothing to do with Guix itself, it's just how the package maintainer decided to set the defaults.

I used GuixSD, but I will wouldn't recommend it for your needs. Of course anons get over excited and they just want to shill what they like to everyone. But I'm not here to fool you. I believe it's more important people know what they're getting.

So here's the bottom line. Guix can technically do what you need, but there is currently no customization options EXPOSED by packages.
What I mean is that the way you modify a package to, say disable GTK, differs from package to package. On Gentoo they have a whole system where the maintainer of the package can expose a flag to enable/disable GTK which is specifically tailored to that specific package, but can be set system wide so you don't have to know the individual nuance of each package.
Guix on the other hand would require you to know how to do it for each package. Sure you can set custom configure/build options en masse using Guix, but there is no guarantee every package does it the same way.

So currently, gentoo is probably your best choice.

Well that's simply a failing in your knowledge. That's not Guix's problem.

I'll give you a hint at how wrong you are though. There is literally a feature in guix called build "challenging" where you can challenge a binary build on the repo to verify if it has been tampered with or not.
You cannot do that with any other package manager because builds are never completely identical. On Guix packages are often BITWISE identical even when built on different machines.

Tyler Garcia

How?

It's stupidly compiling icecat with -j1 right now. Tell me exactly _how_ I can change that.

Benjamin Powell

gentoo seems like the kind of distro that once you use you can't go back to anything simpler.
It is really good at what it does and it sure has a lot of long-term users.

IDK if you'll require Gentoo or more complex for all your machines going forward, though.

Seems very possible that you at some point might not care much about exact deps or sauce patches or something else Gentoo makes a bit more convenient. You'll see. But for culling dependencies, it's one of the obvious distros to try.

Sure, I'll tell you how, but there's 2 ways to do it.
So first just tell me are you installing it through Guix (e.g. by using "guix package -i icecat")
Or are you installing it through the full GuixSD system with icecat inside your system configuration file?

On the issue of more recent laptops with Windows 10 preinstalled, I have one bought last year which refuses to accept my Arch installation USB. I've put the .iso file onto the USB with Rufus making sure to check the option for GPT partition table. I've turned off 'secure boot' in the BIOS. But what happens when I try to boot to USB is that 'Secure Boot' is switched back on and a dialog comes up saying that the boot image "cannot be authenticated", which is to say it isn't Windows 10.

How the fuck do people install Linux onto modern laptops which switch BIOS options back on anyway automatically?

No, I'm quite confident about the Lisp language family nearly not having achieved any somewhat widely used software other than a text editor the size of an OS in 60+ years.

Absurd and pretty hostile (seeing how almost nobody wanted it in 60+ years) choice.

I'll give you a hint at how wrong you are though. There is literally a feature in guix called build "challenging" where you can challenge a binary build on the repo to verify if it has been tampered with or not.
That doesn't help at all with "handling of dependencies". You're bringing up some completely unrelated minor advantage.

Which doesn't really solve any practical problem that has appeared in the wild anyhow. Sure, they do address making it easier to detect if someone has fucked with the binary building toolchain on a distro's compile box - but this wasn't an actual issue anyone had with any regularity so far, was it?

What is FF doing this time?

different user
I'm Switching TTYs like crazy and I'm addicted to it.

1) Have main account where literally nothing is going on.
2) Use main account(of Linux Mint) to create(in the GUI with 1 click) a new user like "shitpostign-user"
3) Press CTRL+ALT+F2 (or whatever) to get a empty TTY
4) login by typing

shitpostign-user
startx

get graphical desktop with web browser ready to go.

5) all applications think this is a new user
6) cookies don't work, Super cookies don't work, tracking does not work, google thinks this is a new computer.
7) Keep all your files on a root folder to exchange or add to your archive.
8) chamod 777 it(root exchange/archive folder) from time to time.

All web browsers think you are on a new computer, no need for VMs.
Privet browsing is for retards.

After you finish shitposting GUI-log out of the shitposting-user account you are in the console still logged in as shitposting-user DON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT (!!!) .

Switch to your main account to mark the shitposting-user account to be deleted (I simply change the profile picture to a big red X).

After computer is shut down and restarted in the main account delete all users marked with the big red X.

And all cookies all tracking is forgotten.
Only how can I log out of a console TTY ? If I use exit there is a 20% chance the whole system becomes unresponsive/bricks itself!!!!

This is kind of a non-answer to your question, but you should use IceCat if you aren't already. Even if you disable the default addons like librejs, it has about:config tweaks and has removed certain bits like Pocket from regular Firefox.

Why don't you just use application sandboxes? Firejail or bubblewrap or the IMO too cumbersome but capable systemd-nspawn or whatever. You could even use docker for the same effect regardless if it runs a full VM inside or a namespace container thing.

Plus "tracking does not work" is a stretch if you're still using the same connection.

Then assuming you mean something like "guix package -u" you should uninstall icecat (guix package -r icecat) and then run this:

guix package -e '(begin (use-modules (guix packages) (gnu packages gnuzilla)) (package (inherit icecat) (arguments (append (package-arguments icecat) `(#:make-flags "-jN")))))'

replace -jN with whatever you want

I know it's not the most elegant, but they are adding new options all the time to rewrite package aspects. So I definitely forsee a simple --add-make-flag=-jN option or something similar in the future.
(there's also talk on the mailinglist of creating Gentoo USE-Flag like package arguments)

Some other things you might be interested in knowing:
* When doing an upgrade you can specify packages to not upgrade with the "--do-no-upgrade" flag
* You can check what will be compiled and what will be downloaded with the "--dry-run" option
Combining those 2 options should let you decide if you want to postpone upgrading certain packages which take a long time to build until the build server has one available.

Logan Price

Also keep in mind that the package maintainers may have set -j1 for a reason.

So don't be surprised if the build fails when you change it.

Owen Gray

Yes, no particularly relation to dependency management. It's just verification of an individual package in the sense of binary reproducibility. Whether the package even has *any* dependencies or not is entirely irrelevant.

And again, not actually a problem we had "in the wild"? I am not aware of any distro build server's toolchain becoming sabotaged to produce altered binaries, never it happening mind multiple times (suggesting you can't easily fix this by just managing a server's security).

user, the reason I said it's a HINT is because I don't want to spend an hour discussing all the superior nuance of Guix dependency management.

If you can't understand why a package built on multiple machines which results in identical binaries bit-for-mother-fucking-bit necessarily implies PERFECT dependency handling then I can see I made the right choice in avoiding having a more technical conversation about it with you.
I doubt you know half of what you think you do.

I'm a clueless newbie so cope with me, but what's the deal with GTK and Qt? Do I have to "commit" to one camp if I don't want to bloat my system? When I try to install a Qt program on Ubuntu it comes with like 50 dependencies and vice-versa.

Chase Myers
Chase Myers

yep, that would be software written in C
No, the threshold for a bunch of useful/relevant software isn't only at C.

Lisps fails to be even as relevant with a few handfuls of software as Go, Kotlin or the already dead Visual Basic. It's pretty incredible how little the whole language family has ultimately practically speaking achieved to produce in terms of relevant software in its long life.

You *really* don't understand this "hostility" if someone is trying to push this kind of dangerous failure once again?

Connor Thomas
Connor Thomas

50 dependencies and vice-versa
It's just 2 similar "tookits" that are kind of competing (not sure if "competing" is really the best word for it).

Some devs like one, some like the other. Some make their application with both so the user has the option of which to use.
Ideally you should only need 1, but in practice you might need both if you can't avoid it.

In my opinion though, both kind of suck. They're a bit more bloated then they really have to be, and neither of them lives up to the expectation of being truly "cross-platform" because they try too hard to appear "native" to whichever OS they're running on.
Also, GTK sucks a little bit more because it's developers are world renowned shitheads of the highest degree imaginable. I still use it though because it really dominates the GUI market. GTK is probably 90% and Qt would be something like 10%.

Zachary Collins
Zachary Collins

user, the reason I said it's a HINT is because I don't want to spend an hour discussing all the superior nuance of Guix dependency management.
It wasn't even a hint at anything dependency management related, and nothing about Guix' dependency management seems superior.

necessarily implies PERFECT dependency handling
It can even imply no dependency handling at all, or dependency handling with no / nearly no features.

You should realize ANY unpatched upstream package doesn't tend to build without its non-optional dependencies anyhow, and the perfection is mainly related to how exactly the dependencies are defined and pulled in [both the necessary and optional ones].

What you have here is only a reproducibly bit-identical build toolchain, which again on top of not being terribly related to good management of dependencies [on that end you just record what EXACT package ids and options you compiled with, what a genius innovation!] actually just solves NO particularly important issue in terms of what has shown up in the wild. It's only closing a more hypothetical security issue related to a possible late detection of someone tinkering with builds on the build server.

Christian Phillips
Christian Phillips

what's the deal with GTK and Qt?
Two different GUI toolkits - the main ones on Linux for most programming languages.

Do I have to "commit" to one camp if I don't want to bloat my system?
Yes-ish, but you may simply just be forced to bloat your system.

It's not like GTK software is generally bloating your system significantly less than QT or vice versa, so why did you accept that other one? Right, you wanted the GUI!
Guess what happens if you want a GUI software that happens to have used the other thing? Or even possiblyyet another less used GUI lib? Yep, no choice.

Adrian Sanchez
Adrian Sanchez

I'm honestly not convinced right now that you're not trolling.

What makes you think a package manager that can perfectly reproduce the build toolchain also can't perfectly reproduce the runtime?
That's the HINT I was fucking hoping you'd understand for yourself without me having to spell it out for you.
Because it CAN perfectly reproduce the runtime and all runtime dependencies too.

If that doesn't satisfy you then you're going to have to explain what you think "dependency handling" means (something which you honestly should have done already, and the fact that you haven't explained what you think it means and still claim that my posts are "unrelated" is what makes me think you're trolling)

just solves NO particularly important issue in terms of what has shown up in the wild
Again that's why it was a fucking HINT. I didn't intend for it to be a full smocking gun argument. I'm assuming you can do a web search and read some shit yourself.

What makes you think a package manager that can perfectly reproduce the build toolchain also can't perfectly reproduce the runtime?
Unzip will do that too. Again, almost entirely unrelated to dependency management. To get reproducible builds, you only need to know which exact unique dependencies and settings were used (super simple to do) and do the build the same way again. And the only issue this then solves is the one I mentioned multiple times already.

This isn't at all indicating good dependency management, which is more related to how fast and reliable and exactly it can resolve mandatory and optional dependencies, and whether they're all exhaustively specified - as in absolutely every optional package in every possible version that works is listed for both necessary and optional dependencies, and every impossible package and version is blacklisted / not included, all checked against all relevant parameters (e.g. even if a compile option or presence of package x or anything else makes package y as optional dependency impossible on package z, it blocks).

Guix doesn't have these things actually specified very well yet from all that I could see.

It does. Take VM, unzip it, same runtime environment. Take binary, unzip it, same binary.

Apart from that, the problem here is the goal post move no matter how well or not well I explain this. It is simply *not* a great dependency management feature.

Reproducible builds are virtually only interesting for toolchain security; it makes it easier to trust a distro's build machine because you can reproduce the build tooling and result. But even this hasn't ever been a pressing problem anywhere.

A blog post from 18/5/2018

"Since Ubuntu 18.04 is a "LTS" release it will be officially supported by "AMD" with the "AMDGPU-PRO" drivers. These drivers are only available directly from AMD and are geared more towards professional applications. You don't need these drivers for gaming. Actually, the "gaming" part is almost identical to the open source driver. "

Regardless of what I can find on the subject I'm forced to use Ubuntu because the open source "AMD" drivers give me a random black screen upon merely just using my computer. The only way I can bypass this is by using "AMDGPU-PRO". When it goes black I cannot use the "TTY" or "SYSRQ", nor a restart. I have to force shut my computer and boot back in again and it will stop working randomly again until I install "AMDGPU-PRO".

These are some of my outputs:

google is really not that obsessed over IPs in this day and age its all about the super cookies.

I get a new account where everything is tied to the account every application every system bullshit. and on Linux (or Linux mint at least) its super fast to set up it really takes about the amount of time like typing the name of the account and pressing create to get it operational not the windows bullshit.

Firejail or bubblewrap or the IMO too cumbersome but capable systemd-nspawn or whatever

TTYs allow you to instantly switch between TTYs by pressing CTRL+ALT+F(key)

Excluding the main control account that I use there are 6 TTYs I can use to accounts and instantly switch between them for different reasons (shitposting, degenerate porn, banking, work).

Oh I almost forgot Jow Forums how can I get more then 7 TTYs in linux (linux mint)?
I want to have all F keys on a TTY.

How can I get more TTYs? since only 7 TTYs start by default.

I want F1 to F12 to be all TTYs so 11 TTYs excluding the main control one.
Word on the street is that linux kernel has 63 TTYs.

Doubling the question from previous thread in more condensed form, since I still want to find out if someone encountered the irrelevant partition appearing by itself:
I found some weird partition on my netbook. I only noticed it when started preparing partitions for Linux installation. It was shown as EFI partition in Win disk utility and had all the actions greyed out. It didn't mount in Linux either. All i know about it is that it's empty, has a size of 18.4 Mib and fdisk also shows it as an EFI partition.
I don't know why would it have an EFI partition, because this netbook runs BIOS. But still, Win utility can't delete it for some reason.
So, wtf is this drive and what can I do with it?
Pic related, it's sda4.

Only its not one of them not so costly and system heave.

EVERY setting is in /home/shitpostign-user
Every setting of this user is in
/home/shitpostign-user
EVERY browser configuration file.
EVERY personal configuration file.

And the best thing on Linux mint is that the fonts I install are only in the local home directory so google can feel free to watch this fingerprint however once the session is over this account and all of its configurations -> fingerprints go away.

I recommend you read I deleted because I did fucked up in encapsulating the code in tags and the new one is the corrected one.

I can get totally different ads in different TTYs at the same time and this is enough for me.

Brows the internet on it, download pictures and movies and keep them there. Watch movies on linux.

Do internet stuff on your Xubuntu or see if you can not do things like and once you are comfortable there. Try to do some projects or interesting stuff. Write some scripts it will come naturally over time.

And once your noob-linux is super comfy for you I recommend looking into other distros or trying to install them.

You are more interested in the IDE the same way you are interested in the browser.
However you can write C programs and compile them in the linux command line since linux OSs come with gcc build in.
However look into IDEs.

Whatever distro supports that best
The only thing you need to know is that system scripting(yes they are programs) is OS dependent.

Linux has bash
Its a good scripting language I have no idea how to really install it in windows.

MS-DOS (YES DOS!) and windows have .BAT (or whatever the fuck that shit with the .BAT extension is because MS-DOS also accepts it)
Literally the only still in use high level programming language that supports GOTO no forget that .BAT can only be programmed using GOTOs.
Use this shit only if you need to or are interested in seeing what you can do with only GOTO programming.

This is the only exclusive thing in programming.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

I'm terribly sorry for interjecting another moment, but what I just told you is GNU/Linux is, in fact, just Linux, or as I've just now taken to calling it, Just Linux. Linux apparently does happen to be a whole operating system unto itself and comprises a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Most computer users who run the entire Linux operating system every day already realize it. Through a peculiar turn of events, I was misled into calling the system "GNU/Linux", and until now, I was unaware that it is basically the Linux system, developed by the Linux project.

There really isn't a GNU/Linux, and I really wasn't using it; it is an extraneous misrepresentation of the system that's being used. Linux is the operating system: the entire system made useful by its included corelibs, shell utilities, and other vital system components. The kernel is already an integral part of the Linux operating system, never confined useless by itself; it functions coherently within the context of the complete Linux operating system. Linux is never used in combination with GNU accessories: the whole system is basically Linux without any GNU added, or Just Linux. All the so-called "GNU/Linux" distributions are really distributions of Linux.

Oh remember everything that is compiled will work on the OS from the start.

Everything that is interpreted will require you install a interpreter in the OS.

C and C++ are compiled so the compiler translates C/C++ into what the computer naturally understands.

Python is interpreted and the OS needs to have a interpreter that translates the raw python code to the OS in real time.

I already said - it doesn't mount, I can't see what is stored here. But it's has 100% of free space, so I suppose that it's empty or has some dynamic file, like those readyboost ones.

Define windows and define better then we talk.

Windows managed to be the single biggest peace of shit imaginable despite having a monopoly and billions of dollars thrown into it.
Registry rot, crashes, internal failures the OS actually going insane and senile after 1 year.

MS is actively hostile and fucks over its own user base.

In contrast to the under 1% meme linux OSs manage to run circles around windows who lacks even the basic features tabs in window manager, virtual desktops for over 10 years not showing up.
Then MS demands you buy the game of the year edition of the OS to get the most basic features like more ram support or the ability to create software raid.

And then MS decides to remove features from the OS because fuck YOU!

No one wants to run windows the only thing windows has going for it is other software that needs windows API crap to load itself.
Imagine windows not having all the software it has and only the one you get on GNU+loonix.

The OS is worse in every regard. Windows looks like some schizophrenic abomination with over 6 different ways to store configuration that where abandoned over the years to finally arrive at the shit that unix did have from the start (all configs go in text to /home/user/).

No one would use windows if the playing field was the same. And this would have bean trivial if the government mandated one single unified API every application needs to use so every OS manufacturer can get 100% compatibility with all software.
Make the API code GPL and say that every API needs to be GPL or its a crime.
100% compatibility everywhere and MS is dead withing 1 year.

No one gives a shit what the API is or how nightmarish it is written if its GPL everyone can include it and use it.
Don't like the government API? Make your own only it needs to be GPL.

It's important to update Linux to maintain the security of your system. Linux is constantly being updated to fix bugs and other issues that could affect you even if your system "works" and you don't notice changes.

I once talked to win-slave some people are born slaves and you will wish genocide on every win-slave in existence.

I pointed out that the unix file-systems allow you to use every character except null and / (I like to also have the ability to use / in file names) so I can use ? and name folders ??? I think everyone can agree this is a good thing.

You never guess what the win-slave talked to me in his slave deluded brain.
Its a good thing that some characters are restricted
I tried to explain that you have special characters like ? and you still can use them in file names however it simply did not compute in the win-slave minds.

It was like seeing someone defend being only able to use the 8.3 filenames in this day and age.
It was not even a sentence or anything coherent. Its like these people want to be oppressed and slaves.

Or discussions like this:
I love to switch to a ford car however all the roads I drive on are are BMW roads so I lose access to all the places I go to.

Even if everyone decides to make their own API its not a problem to fit them in modern OSs.
you can see this with browsers who support chrome extensions.

This OS supports 12 APIs windows 98, win XP, win 7, OSX, Xbox, Play Station, Nintendo, Atari and even Temple OS.

Now, knowing about this, I'm rethinking again how to arrange the partitions. Boot booster and backup are not vital, but are useful in the long term, so I could disable and delete one of them only to recreate it on some logical partition again. But would they work on logical partitions? Because these features seem really low-level.
The other option is to copy my files from non-system partition, delete it, create an extended partition and return the files on one of the logical parts but then "date modified" could be lost.
Surely partitioning is the hardest part of installation.

Disable passwords. Use public key authentication only.

I also use a non-standard port and disable all users except mine, but that is not really necessary. As long as you disable passwords, you'll be fine. If you use port 22 your logs will probably fill up with people running various kinds of attacks, but they have no hope of success against a public-key-only server. Using a non-standard port will eliminate most of that stuff.

The government forcing me to actually tell everyone what voltage and frequency I use in my electric socket is communism!
The government protecting my """intellectual property"" by hunting down anyone who tries to test what frequency and voltage I use in my socket is capitalism and freedom.

Personally I think every OS must be mandated to GPL(or public domain however in essence it its GPL then) because a OS is to important nowadays(practically nothing runs on machine code alone so anyone can build a machine from the specifications of the hardware and get the code to work is no longer true) to be proprietary.
However making the API code GPL is a perfect balance.

if copyleft shit was mandatory no one could make money from software
You can not possibly be this retarded its like saying people can not sell software if the OS is GPL.
And there is steam for linux you retard, you can buy software on a GPL OS. And because whatever the Steam OS API is everyone can run these games forever because the API can be implemented everywhere.

And its irrelevant how cancerous or spaghetti code the API gets you simply take the GPL blob and install it in the OS and never think what the black box of spaghetti code is doing and have it work everywhere.

You are so retarded that you are literally on the level of saying this:
Because the internet TCP/IP are open standards and the web protocols are standardized open standards no one can make money on the internet or sell anything or sell access to online videos.
And this is simply not true you fagot!
Making every API GPL allows everyone to start making a OS and get all the compatibility of whatever the original OS was.

Are you some republican or libertarian?

Also, you can use ssh_config to define default users and ports on a per-machine basis, so even if you use different usernames and non-standard ports you can still simply "ssh home" or "ssh router" or whatever.

Use /etc/hosts to assign nicknames like "home" and "router" do different machines.

You'll want to be sure that your IP address is not going to change. I have found that residential connections generally keep the same IP address for years at a time even though they are not statically assigned. I use a dynamic DNS system anyway, just in case.

Anyone else have a handful of slightly intensive graphical games under Linux (some native steam game, Overwatch under wine with dxvk, maybe CSGO but I can not recall and barely played it) with an nvidia card (950 gtx) with official nvidia drivers occasionally lead to complete system freezes?
It is not common for me but when it happens the last portion (fractions of a second) of sound will be looping sounding like some mechanical grinding noise
nothing responds and the only solution is a hard reset (e.g the numpad lights do not toggle, cursor does not move)

I originally thought maybe it was overheating but even manually setting the fan to full blast still causes it to happen.
Maybe it is that I am using the efi framebuffer and nvidia does not like that?
or perhaps it is a [ram] memory issue?
what happens if you run out of video memory, applications just crash normally?

it has never happened in other games like lagolagends or SC2.
it is a very hard issue for me to debug too since what logs are you supposed to have available if it is a freeze rather than a crash?

always hear Jow Forums talk about how DEs are shit and WMs are superior
could never be fucked to set a WM up or learn the keybinds for a tiling WM so just used DE anyway
recently, i fucked up my sddm and i couldnt be fucked to fix it, so i threw together a quick desktop with openbox+tint2+compton as a temporary fix
turns out it's slicker and much more comfy than pretty much any DE i've ever used

I should have done something like this sooner, honestly. I mean, KDE does still have some merits that warrant its use, I feel, but this rudimentary Openbox setup blows every other DE I've used out of the water in terms of speed, simplicity, stability, and lack of jankyness, without compromising on functionality. This is probably the first time I've used a desktop on GNU/Linux where I can drag and resize windows without them turning into disgusting laggy messes, for example. I'm just kind of impressed that it works so much better than something like XFCE.

What does it mean "compromised"? Free software is not a moral superiority sect with a set of rules. You can use whatever you want in any combination, but having particular closed-source proprietary programs simply can be bad for you because they can possess harmful functionalities, and because the developers can have unjustified power over you. As Stallman has said, I'm not going to scorn you for using proprietary software, it's not your moral fault that you're in a jail because of developers' whim, but leaving the proprietary jail is your right, and you can exercise it in practice with GNU and other free programs.

short answer is you can't. gtk3 and gnome are a blight on every system where they're installed. the devs force their ugly shitty giant title but no menu bar theme into everything and then cry endlessly when users try to change it. if you're up for a bit of a challenge you can try installing luakit. it's a lightweight keyboard driven browser that uses webkit and vim keybindings. it's a pain to get used to but once you have it figured out you can work really quickly in your browser. i believe debian has it in its repos.

Anybody else experiencing a bug with text color in the Breeze Dark theme on kde? Well, I was just fucking around on my system, and found the way to fix it. Go to the plasma System Settings and follow these steps,
1: "Look and Feel" -> Breeze
2: "Plasma Theme" -> Breeze
3: Colors -> Breeze Dark

(Previously: all set to Breeze Dark)
For me, Dolphin previews for plaintext files were unreadable. The font color was off-white, on a text-preview background of white. For a while, I thought Dolphin's text previews were broken in general. But, I confirmed that the text was still there using the "laptop screen trick": tilt the LCD screen back a few degrees, suddenly contrast goes way up... (& eventually as angle increases colors get inverted due to polarization).

I have only noticed people complain about this particular Breeze Dark color bug on Arch and Manjaro, seems relatively new. So the steps I'm listing here should count as a workaround, since normally if you want it across all of KDE, then you set everything to Breeze Dark, right? Or does it make more sense to -not- subdivide themes into normal vs. dark?

Yes, that's what you're supposed to do.

PATH is a variable that contains a list of directories where your shell looks for programs. The commands that you enter on the command line, e.g. "cd" and "ls", are just the names of executable files that are stored in one of the directories in your PATH. That line adds ~/.local/bin to your PATH, so that you will be able to run programs that you put in that directory from the command line without needing to specify their location within the filesystem.

I don't know why you would need to do that instead of just installing your software to one of the usual places.
