Linux thread. Scorbunny (ID: ca84bd)Country code: tux.png, country type: customflag, valid:   329823[Last 50 Posts]

I've recommended Arch Linux a lot. So, I've been looking at Manjaro Linux as my next jump. For those who use Linux, how is Arch anyway? If not Arch, what Linux do you use?

I use puppy and lubuntu because i like my OS to manage my system resources, not be their number 1 consumer.

Not that any distro is particularly a resource hog, but imo less is definitely more.
I haven't used arch so i dont really have an opinion of it, but i get the impression that it can be pretty much whatever you want it to be if you have the skills to do so.

Scorbunny (ID: ca84bd)Country code: tux.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1  329835

That''s what I've been hearing. Hence why I've been looking at Manjaro because it's basically Arch for beginners.

>>329830
I used to want Puppy badly tbh. BTW...do I know you from LNP or something? How are you btw?

You should, considering i was/am a mod there.
I literally just got back from visiting Derpypaws in NC haha.

I've been good! Ups and downs, life.

Did you use a different name over there?

Also, puppy is really easy to get into, just make a live CD or USB and start clicking around. I have a puppy and lubuntu USB that i use as my main systems, and just find hardware to run it on when i need to.

Well, I probably need Puppy for lightness, but I also need something for music production as well.

Remind me to back up my production resources.

Also, I am r_chase on Discord, yes.

Dude Chase! I know you!
How've you been!?
What brings you to these parts?

Puppy should be able to run most anything ubuntu does and even shares repositories, but honestly, lubuntu is basically as light, and is much simpler to use and learn, i would check that out first if you want an OS to use daily.

Also, dont forget to backup your production resources :P

Scorbunny (ID: ca84bd)Country code: tux.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1  329851

>>329845
Pretty good. I came back to these parts because, hey, why not.

Anyway, I think I might get Lubuntu for daily use after all. Linux Lite was simple, but pain in the arse at the same time.

Also, I will back up my stuff soon. <3

Yup, lubuntu is basically Ubuntu without all the unity frills and Amazon ads haha. Its rather nice.
I run it right off a 128gb USB and never have an issue.

Yeah, thats basically why i came back too a while ago haha. LNP was basically a fork of ponychan to begin with, so its like... Roots yo.
Thats funny, i was literally at derpys house watching the new rocko 24hrs ago haha.
I hope you stick around, this place needs more chill pony folks and less white supremacists haha.
Dont let that dude put you off, please.

Im going to remind you a lot about that. Back up your resources damnit!

Don't worry. That guy is the least of my worries right now. Hehe.

Also, yeah, Rocko was an excellent show. I kinda hope they make some more eventually, even if it's an actual movie.

Oh...and I will back up my stuff. Don't worry.

I kind of took the meaning of that special to be like, you shouldnt live in the past and nostalgia, but remember fondly what was while embracing whats new.

Also, did not see that coming with Ralph bighead tbh, but i thought it was cool.
Dont want to spoiler anything though.

Well, I don't have any new flash drive USBs atm, but I will get some probably next month or so.

I don't use it as much as I want to. I've messed with some Raspbian and I have Mint on my laptop.

I might try to set up an nginx RTMP server on my laptop tonight, kinda wanna try something. Private OBS to VLC streaming.

Ah, spoilers are doodoo haha.
But, it really doesn't detract from the enjoyment.
I like that they worked in the foot guy and the "YES!" voice haha. All around a great special.

You can run lubuntu off an HDD to, i just use a USB because i don't have a hard drive atm and it works out that i can take the USB to work with me and download big files.
I only have a 4g connection at home atm, so that helps a lot to have my "hard drive" be portable and my system be plug and play on essentially any hardware.

Been running Debian main on the laptop for a while now
The WiFi isn’t supported so I had to use a dodgy workaround until further notice
Otherwise works a charm, curious if there are any full screen game loading frontends worth using

Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop includes Wi-Fi iirc. As for full screen stuff, I'm not sure. I'm a novice Linux user. Not to mention I use a Chromebook for mostly casual things other than music production. Both Chrome and Chromium OS are forked from Gentoo believe it or not.

Meh. I was thinking of going with either Lubuntu or Debian anyway. Also, Manjaro is the form of Arch for beginners from what I've heard. So, maybe it's not all that difficult as some people think.

Moshy (ID: 098732)Country code: ie, country type: geoip, valid: 1  330039

>>330023
I might still end up having to use a WiFi N dongle as well. Personally I prefer being able to have a hardware kill switch for use at any time.
Stuff like RetroArch’s XMB style interface is what I have in mind for full screen game shells. And I can easily make it so that I can login straight into one without having to start Plasma too

You can pretty much repurpose Gentoo for anything these days, the flexibility is interesting
What kinda music production, you have me curious

Scorbunny (ID: ca84bd)Country code: tux.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1  330042

>>330039
Electronic. I use FL Studio 10, which works wonderfully with Wine. I use Linux Lite on my old ThinkPad. I hope to revitalize it with a better OS. It's slow to boot up.

Also, yeah, Gentoo is fascinating. I kinda wish there was a Gentoo fork for beginners. I heard vanilla Gentoo is actually mega-difficult to set up.

I've been looking at FreeBSD-based OSes for some reason. Am I really desperate to be different or something?

I should probably stick with Puppy Linux as my next jump tbh, but...I don't know.

Anyway, I'm bumping this thread to see what happens.

I'm thinking of using the x86 version of DietPi for my old ThinkPad. No, I'm not joking. It's super lightweight, probably lighter than Puppy.

It'll revitalize my ThinkPad for sure...hopefully.

EDIT: I'm not jumping just yet. Gotta do some backing up first. lmao

Arch is one of the most modern Linux distributions around. The beginner flavors are like cool from what I've read so far. Manjaro and Antergos, though the latter is actually discontinued by now. RIP.

Anyway, Arch is one of those intermediate-level OSes (usually) and can be a bit of a bumpy ride unless if you one of the beginner flavors I mentioned before. So, yeah. It's a cool concept, but I'm planning on something with my Pi Zero...maybe. I might make it a kiosk or something with DietPi or whatever.

I would recommend starting with Manjaro in other words if you want an Arch-like beginner experience.

Are there Arch forks or close equivalents without systemd? I remember there being at least two which were active enough but I can't find them now for some reason. Maybe I'm just being shit at looking up things at the moment.

Anonymous (ID: ad920a)Country code: us, country type: geoip, valid: 1  334480

>>334444
If you really want to avoid systemd then maybe try out gentoo? On a modern PC I found compiling to not be THAT much of a hassle. Only reason I stopped using it is because Lumerical software doesn't work on it and I need to use it for research.

Closer to Arch is probably void. Also Alpine exists if you don't want a bunch of exotic software.

Also Artix linux is Arch without systemd but I don't know how supported it is.

Yeah, Void is one of the two I couldn't remember for some reason. The other was probably Manjaro back when they wanted a different init system.

Hey guys. OP here.

First off, I want to congratulate some of you for behaving well in this thread while I was away from /ef/. You guys are awesome!

Second, I have successfully installed Debian on to my old ThinkPad and I'm probably gonna use SunVox pretty often.

To be honest, I'm more of a just-the-basics kind of person. The Debian (x86) flavor I got is simple and has the appearance of a Raspbian desktop.

Speaking of which, I might go under "Scorch" instead of "Scorbunny" once I get into this site on my ThinkPad. Might be soon actually. I'll be sure to let you know when it happens.

GIMP is definitely the way to go imo.
It looks like a lot, and yes its capable of a lot, but it works good for a simple editing tool as well.

Anything that you cant figure out i promise you can learn in 5 min via watching a youtube video or something.

Besides, isnt it better to learn the basics of something complex and have room to expand?

There's also Pinta. It's simpler but not as powerful as GIMP. And Krita, but that's more for drawing stuff.

Simplicity as in minimalist or simplicity as in image quality?

Like, are you looking to take a grainy low res photo as a stylistic choice?

>>334820
I haven't tried ether of those tbh.
I should check them out.
How is Krita compared to inkscape?

(ID: fab73b)Country code: stallman.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1  334823

>>334822
Inkscape is for vector graphics, and as far as I know Krita is for raster graphics, just with an emphasis on drawing-related tools.

Scorch (ID: ca84bd)Country code: tux.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1  334824

>>334822
Simplicity as in minimalist because I'll mostly use my phone to make calls (and text message authentications if necessary). As for photos, I guess they'll be in low quality anyway. Ah well.

Oh, you mean simplicity as in your phone.

I thought you were still taking about the photo. Like, you were choosing to used a flip phone to take photos, for simplicity.

I could use some single-player FOSS games as well. So far, I got Torus Trooper, which was a nice surprise to see in the repository. However, I'm also looking for a good roguelike and a couple other shoot-em-ups as well.

Let me know if you got something cool that is natively compatible with Linux.

By shoot-em-up I mean those arcade-y type of stuff. Maybe Touhou-esque as well.

Also, I've looked at Dwarf Fortress. Doesn't really appeal to me that much. Sorry.

Oh, alright. Kobo Deluxe is pretty fun, and it's FOSS. Also I guess Dorf Fort doesn't technically work whether you like the game or not, since it's proprietary.
Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead is another pretty good roguelike.

Kobo Deluxe seems cool. I might give it a try sometime.

I should probably mention that while the Debian flavor I have has a 64-bit kernel, it does have a 32-bit userland. My ThinkPad is an older model. Specifically, X140e. At least it works well though.

Dodonpachi you need MAME to run but you can get it through the package manager, danmaku unlimited 2 you can get on steam, should run on linux im pretty sure.

Another shmup I found in the package manager is Gunroar. It's like twin stick meets classic Touhou...except without the magical girls and stuff.

You are a navel gunship shooting down shit, that's about it. It's also by the same guy that did Torus Trooper. It's awesome.

Does anyone use keyboard cleaning putty?

Generally, I pop out all the keys (except the long ones with the stabilizing wire underneath), stick them in a laundry lingerie bag and put them through the dishwasher, then go over the rest of it with an electric air duster (since, while they don't deplete the ozone anymore, dusting spray is still pretty bad for the environment) and alcohol and q-tips.

But that's not an option for scissor-switch keys like most laptop keyboards have.

Ubuntu is based on Debian. It's one of the Debian-based distribution that is used a lot, often by beginner Linux users looking to switch from Windows as a desktop operating system.

Like Debian, Ubuntu also has its own flavors based on the interface it uses, such as Lubuntu, which use LXQt.

I use a flavor of Debian of course. It uses an LXDE-based desktop interface. It's great. Really.

I'm not sure what kind of growth medium that is. Probably just a straight nutrient agar. From the organisms it looks like it could be Sabouraud, but I suppose that's a good case for using something a little more selective. All you'll end up with are some aspergillus and penicilliums crowding out anything interesting.

Ubuntu was my very first experience with Linux (not counting Mandrake Linux, which wouldn't even boot) so I have fond memories of Intrepid Ibex (most Linux distributions have code names for their release versions). Overall it's pretty decent.

Most people recommend that you start with Linux Mint, since it's mostly straight out of the box.

I started with Linux Lite, but I moved on to Debian with Raspberry Pi Desktop (not to be confused with Raspbian though).

In all honesty, start with figuring out the hardware specs first. Then choose a Linux distro. For instance, Linux Mint is medium-end because of its Cinnamon desktop interface. Puppy Linux is somewhere between beginner and intermediate because it's an independent Linux distro, not a flavor of anything really. However, Puppy is also super lightweight and can be used to revive "outdated" hardware.

So, what are your hardware specs exactly?

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure all i3 processors are x64 (short for x86_64), and it shouldn't have any. Linux Mint with the default Cinnamon desktop should be fine.

>>335118
That's not a dumb question, Lubuntu is just Ubuntu but you start with the LXDE desktop environment, as opposed to GNOME 3.

Scorch (ID: ca84bd)Country code: tux.png, country type: customflag, valid: 1  335122

Yeah, I think Linux Mint will work.

Also, I might make another OS jump on my ThinkPad. I found out that a game creation suite for Linux is only available on 64-bit OSes...and my Debian flavor has a 32-bit userland. Yeah.

I now got BionicPup on a USB. I had to reuse one of my old USBs in order to have it. I just hope it really is compatible with both Puppy and Ubuntu images. Tomorrow, I'll try to run it live first to see if the desktop on it will work. Then, I'll install it. I don't know if I should use "frugal" or "full" install.

Anyway, I'm gonna go to bed. Gnight.

In his defense, if you look at the actual email chain, it's not quite as damning in context. He didn't actually say she was entirely willing, but that she was "presented" as entirely willing -- the implication being that she was coerced into doing so by Epstein, and that Minsky could have been unaware she was actually a sex slave.

That said, it was an utterly pointless point to make in a completely inappropriate setting, and a hill not remotely worth dying on. Stallman cannot read a room to save his life.

I think the funniest part of this article is this:

"GNU software became a key part of the operating system most people today call Linux—to the immense irritation of Stallman, who believes the GNU components are significant enough that the package should be called GNU/Linux."


"Yeah, you can't OWN an idea, man. But they should totally give me credit for creating it. That's fucked up."
