Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Do not dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.

We have two different arguments - you argue for purely technical features of a proprietary software developed by a huge commercial corporation, we argue for ethical software development. GIMP exists entirely within the ethical realm - and it has accomplished many impressive things, despite all extreme difficulties and its 100% volunteer developer community.

It's not a go to copout, it is the manifestation of having a different prioritization.
That said, for me GIMP is enough, sure, if I want to go to where you'd have to be at least at 95% of your theoretical limit of affinity with photo editing, then I would use Photoshop, but holy shit me using it is like a fat dude on a racing bicycle.
It would also change a lot if people stopped recommending Photoshop to anyone and everyone, since then GIMP would get more donations and improve more, getting better features and even smoother operation, but I honestly can't say GIMP is bad to use right now as it stands. When was the last time you used it?

You have to read the license and check if you can. Also, if you have a microsoft account and an OEM license attached to it, you could probably pick a VM as your system you're using it on.

GIMP exists entirely within the ethical realm
Cop out it is then.
I totally agree with your point. Especially with your fat guy on a bicycle analogy. If you're not going pro or want to be serious, then Gimp is a great choice to dabble with.
But I dont agree with not recomnending Photoshop over it, because I'd like to assume that anyone asking for a program like that, at least has enough interest to be serious at one point. If someone would ask "whats a good image program to dab with photos and make memes?" then I'd say Gimp in a heartbeat.
When was the last time you used it?

Well, it could at least some effort be made to promote an open alternative to PS, it is something that would be really nice to see and things like pfSense prove it is possible to get far with open source. I mean, just imagine that adobe monopoly toppling, damn it would be great, no more infringing on privacy, no more bullshit subs for this bloated mess (same with adobe reader) and all the other shit everyone likes to complain about.

I was trying to use Void. Installation is quick, package manager is easy, fine. For some reason, I cannot mount my external drives open if I'm not root. I added the necessary groups to my username and I have the necessary packages (ntfs-3g, gvfs, etc).
Anyone knows what to do with this? I was using Xfce btw.

Let me tell you this as the illustration student from the other thread: 99% of adobe users, use a cracked version.

Only people buying it are companies, since they obviously can't have professional work be done on pirated software. But as far as end user usage goes, paying for it is on par with paying for Winamp.

I mean, sure as a student you get a good payment plan, and they really try to push it down your throats. In our case, we didn't have to pay shit because its a paid for license by the University.

No. Debian stable doesn't do things like that. You could conpile it yourself, if you want to learn some things. I would recommend reading about how to build packages for your distro. Arch uses PKGBUILDs and makepkg. Debian seems to use something called debuild. Have a look at their wiki.
The advantage of making a package is that you can install/uninstall it with your package manager, instead of just wildly copying files to /usr.

It just means you don't have the header file for curses (which is a terminal manipulation library).
Install a package called, perhaps, ncurses-dev or equivalent for your distro.

You are missing a header file that is needed for compilation. You need to install a package that includes that header file. On Arch this is provided by

I have bound the side mouse buttons using .Xmodmap, and they work in other programs. I want to bind some keybinds in mpv but im not sure what to call them, and using teh XF86_ names dont seem to be working.
For example i want to bind rotate 90/rotate -90 and zoom in/zoom out
So i tried

XF86Launch1 add video-zoom 0.1
XF86Launch2 add video-zoom -0.1

In to input.conf and opened a video and pressed those keys but they didnt do anything
xev finds the keys properly to XF86Launch1 and XF86Launch2 and those buttons work in other programs

Any advice?

You can also do the same thing with the apt-search package.

These files are only needed at compile time. After you have built the software, you can uninstall the packages.

So i found a changelog back in 2015 from mpv that states

(X11) The XF86 special keys are now all mappable in `input.conf`. All keys
documented in `XF86keysym.h` are available, but only as their numeric codes.

So looking at that file
cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/proto/x11proto/tree/XF86keysym.h
#define XF86XK_Launch0        0x1008FF40   /* Launch Application          */
#define XF86XK_Launch1 0x1008FF41 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch2 0x1008FF42 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch3 0x1008FF43 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch4 0x1008FF44 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch5 0x1008FF45 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch6 0x1008FF46 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch7 0x1008FF47 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch8 0x1008FF48 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_Launch9 0x1008FF49 /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_LaunchA 0x1008FF4A /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_LaunchB 0x1008FF4B /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_LaunchC 0x1008FF4C /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_LaunchD 0x1008FF4D /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_LaunchE 0x1008FF4E /* Launch Application */
#define XF86XK_LaunchF 0x1008FF4F /* Launch Application */

So i put

0x1008FF40 add video-zoom   0.1
0x1008FF41 add video-zoom -0.1

But it still does not work?

Disregard my previous two post. I had a look a cmus on github, and mpris.h is one of the file that are part of the cmus source code. It just happens that libmpris-qt5-dev also has a file withe same name.

So the problem is that gcc (the compiler) can't find the file config/mpris.h. Now I had a look at thecmus source code on github, and it seems that the file mpris.h isn't in a directory called config, but rather in the root directory. So it should be

#include mpris.h
.
The weird thing is, that in the command_mode.c that is on github,it says just that.

So now the big question: whete did you get your source code from? It doesn't seem to be from github.

You can install alternatives with apt-get install foo=version#

I'm running Debian with LXDE and wanted to try out KDE so I installed kde-plasma-desktop. However, when I try to log out in order to switch DE nothing happens when I press the logout button. If I run lxde-logout or lxsession-logout it just opens the same GUI menu which does nothing but close the menu when you press logout. If I do 'lxsession' I get this:

** Message: main.vala:103: DE is (null)
** Message: main.vala:107: No session set, fallback to LXDE session
** Message: main.vala:113: No desktop environnement set, fallback to LXDE

Why can't I seem to log out? I'm using a VNC if it makes any difference, when running lxde-logout or lxsession-logout I get this error message which I guess is related to me connecting through a VNC client? "Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":1.0"."

How the FUCK do I get my desktop to render at the proper frame rate in a multi-display, mixed-refresh rate setup? Is it just not possible on X?

I have one 120hz and one 60hz display. When using just the 120hz display, everything works as expected, everything renders at 120fps, no issue. When using both, however, it's a totally mixed bag. Across every DE I've tried, generally this setup immediately sets the desktop to 60fps across the board, even if the primary display is set as the high-refresh one.

With some tweaks, it's possible to get the desktop to render at 120fps -somewhat- on some DEs (for instance, using a different compositor in XFCE, or changing some config options with KDE), but it's only partial--the cursor, window dragging, and games will render at 120fps (though they'll typically always start out at 60fps), but window contents and window resizing are clearly at 60fps. Vsync options will almost always set the desktop to 60hz, too. In particular, I've noticed on XFCE, if I drag one window around while another window has moving content (like a video), desktop performance drops dramatically.

It's like the window manager is drawing windows and the cursor at 120fps, but applications are getting 60hz reported as the desktop's refresh rate, leading to an inconsistency.

It was a long ass time since I set it up but the vnc service is set to start automatically and perhaps this is tied to this specific user, effectively stopping me from logging out since the vnc connection is dependent of my user being logged in...?

If the games you play are popular enough to have a community who will post Denvercoder9-esque steps to get working on popular distros, do that. But if you play obscure games you will want your OS to be out of your way as much as possible as you tinker and reverse-engineer, in a worst-case scenario.

Just a slight addendum to this. I added a script to LightDM (under

/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
,
display-setup-script=
) to set the refresh rate of my primary display to 120hz. This not only means that LightDM is now rendering at 120hz (it was 60hz previously), but it seems like most elements of the desktop are now as well--for example, when enabling XFCE's compositor, it actually works correctly rather than limiting the desktop to 60fps. Regrettably, Firefox is still giving me issues, so I'll fuck around more with that.

From what I can gather, even though window managers set the refresh rate for drawing windows and the cursor correctly after login, applications grab refresh rate information from the state of the X server when it first starts, which seems to default to 60hz for whatever reason.

There's more info (including how to do this for KDE), as well as some other various tweaks, that I found here: old.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/brsmqc/gnome_still_handles_highrefresh_rate_monitors/
(Although, I disagree with the assertion the GNOME handles high-refresh better than KDE. The opposite has been true in my experience).

btw just for fun, there are probably a few text editors on your system you don't know about like ed and ex, which are pretty interesting. even stripped down distros will come with at least 3 text editors.

sounds easy, i didn't know about that obconf package i'll try that thx.
I'm currently using arch + bspwm on my main pc, i really don't like the patches system on dwm but i might try it because i got tired of manual tiling.
also wtf didn't even realise ed and ex are a thing

Keep in mind that editing the config fules manually gives you a lot more options. obconf doesn't let you edit the autostart file or the keybindings.

I guess that'll be good if I'm wanting to save ram?

Unity
Should I uninstall that? I suspect that it'll be insecure now.

Wayland
Should I care about this?

Sebastian Hill

your display manager (login manager) gives you the option to start your graphical session with one of those desktop environments.
wayland is a display server like x (not sure what you'll actually get if you load that). unity and gnome are desktop environments.

Not that you mention it, I tried it once in 16.04 when I was bug fixing and couldn't load in to anything else. It worked for a while but had a lot of broken shit. Should I just forget about that one?

Isaiah White

idk what the set up on ubuntu is. i'm surprised ubuntu would come with all that stuff.
you need to understand the different between a display server and a desktop environment. basically, you install a display server (xorg, wayland) and then a desktop environment on top (gnome, unity, kde).
so what is it you're trying to do?

Leo Cruz
Leo Cruz

wayland gets a lot of things right that x neglects, but almost /nothing/ will play nice with it, so it's not practical at this time.
maybe someday wayland will be the standard

Henry Fisher
Henry Fisher

so what is it you're trying to do?
Nothing. I just saw these five options and wanted to know what they are. I think that some of them are inherited from 16.04. I'm now on 18.04.

Good to know. That means that out of my five options, I can ignore Wayland and Unity.

i have problems deleting old java jdks and jres.
My intention was to install a fresh version of the 11th version of Java or the 12th and then install the Javafx.
what is wrong with it?

I have an old laptop that I want to use for a general family computer (hook it up to the TV via HDMI so they can watch movies from it etc). I need a distro that:
is lightweight (it's a shitty old HP or something with 4GB of ram)
works out of the box
has an app repository with a GUI that is easy to use
Should I just use elementaryOS? their jewish trickery with "paying" for shit is really rustling my jimmies though.

Eli Lewis

Unironically Windows Vista. It'll run on those specs, works of the box, will be easy to use, and was built with HDMI in mind.

Noah Diaz

I'm trying to install Gentoo following the instructions from the handbook. Everything seemed to be going well but when I rebooted, it tried connecting via DHCP to something then told me it didn't receive a boot file name. If I try booting without an ethernet cable, it says "media test failure: check cable." What did I do wrong that it requires an internet connection to boot and how can I fix it?

Landon Thompson

tried elementaryOS for family laptop, it works good but I have a shoddy battery and it keeps making a stupid sound when it goes from 99% to 100% charged, can't find a way to turn the sound off at all. seems a bit TOO simple of an OS.
any other recommendations or do I just install Ubuntu and be done with it?

Cameron Brown
Cameron Brown

I should specify that I want it to be able to torrent + play media trough HDMI out of the box, that's really all I need. A nice UI (similar to elementaryOS) would be nice too.

what's that new(ish) Linux distro that looks kinda like macOS (comes with a dock preinstalled) and has a blue-ish logo? that's all I remember. it's not elementary. some user made a thread about how it's going to be the future of Linux a while back.

install elementaryOS
takes like 3 minutes, works instantly
go to install Ubuntu
takes an hour to install, screen flashes for a good 10 minutes (guessing it was installing GPU drivers)
takes like a good 2 minutes to even boot into
kek, why the fuck is Ubuntu considered good again? holy shit.

Jason Jenkins

Saner defaults and better hardware/software support than elementaryOS.

but why does it take longer to install than Windows 10? my screen is still flashing on the "Ubuntu" logo btw, lmao. It took me at least half an hour less to install Win 10 on the same machine.

have my devices (linux laptops, android phones etc) connect to my wifi router which then gives them ip via dhcp
the router's wan is connected to ISP's router which it its wan IP from it's own dhcp
sometimes my devices, at random, when connecting to my wifi router, get ip from the isp's router's dhcp instead from my router's dhcp
block udp ports 67:68 in both directions in my router's firewall
no effect
completely block the IP traffic from and to the ISP's dhcp server, so no device on my lan can access it
no effect
I don't fucking know how does that cunt ISP dhcp keep reaching my devices and it's driving me crazy
i have been at this for months now, tried multiple tech forums and discussion boards and nobody was able to solve this fucking mystery
blocking fucking dhcp shouldn't be this hard
just use static ip's
no, that is not a solution, i have many different wifi phones and shit that come and go, i need the dhcp to work properly like it's supposed to

compare it to anything you want, I installed at least 10 or 15 OS's on this machine and not one installation took as long as Ubuntu. this better be worth it or i'm installing Windows on principle.

gave me a good chuckle.
could you describe the exact behavior when your devices
at random, when connecting to my wifi router, get ip from the isp's router's dhcp instead from my router's dhcp
in any greater detail? this isn't something i've ever heard of, strangely enough.

What's the Linux equivalent of a .batch file? I want to be able to run one line of bash just by double-clicking on one file.

Wyatt King
Wyatt King

an executable file whose first line is "#!/bin/bash"

Logan Powell
Logan Powell

A shell script. Yhe first line needs to be the command interpreter you want to use, in your case

#!/bin/bash

The extension can be anything you want. I usually use .bash for bash scripts, and .sh for POSIX shell scripts. Some people just leave tthe extension off altogether.
Just make sure the file os executable (chmod 755 script.bash)

Unfortunately, a lot of linux stuff is subpar compared to Windows.
People put up with that due to the freedom they have(even though 90% of users use it like Windows.)
