What is the most retardproof distro? Need it for my mom's computer, she'll be using it for browsing faceberg and doing menial elementary teacher work.
>>
>>59492753
Debian, Ubuntu or Mint. Personally I'd go with debian, as it's the most stable of the three and is very easy to upgrade (it also only gets updated less than once a year). It should work on most hardware. Ubuntu may be a little easier if she needs to install any extra software without your help after you install it.

What are the benefits over mpv, other than having a interface that shows the current playlist? I used mpd/ncmpcpp before, but to be honest, do you really watch a player playing playlists all the time?

Trying to get my Radeon 6950 to work on Gentoo. I followed the guides here, https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Radeon here, https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/AMDGPU and here, http://wiki.cchtml.com/index.php/Gentoo_Installation_Guide
And while using `startx` will start an x session on my monitors, my mouse and keyboard never show up so I have to restart to close.
Anyone know how to fix this? The wiki says manual configuration should be an absolute last resort, so I figured I am missing something simple.
>>
>>59494429
Nevermind, I'm retarded. I forgot to rebuild my kernel with the new config file (went with default.conf instead of radeon.conf)

So am I supposed to be clearing out the "USE=" variable in /etc/portage/make.conf every time I install something new or does it matter?

No, you add whatever USE flags you need to enable per package in /etc/portage/package.use
And have all global USE flags in make.conf - the ones you need to enable for every/almost every package that has them

No difference. Apt-get and apt provide different sets of available commands (apt has something from apt-cache I think) but the same commands (update/upgrade/autoremove/remove/install) all perform the same shit in both
>>
>>59495192
>>59495186
Well, here's the problem. If it's server I can bet it'll be Terminal. Plus netinst doesn't sound like it'd be GUI packed. So if anything i'd not know what to do if I get in.

Plus just looking at the instructions seems a lot out of my league, I just got into linux. Plus I kinda gotta agree with Stallman's point with Canonical sometimes.
I mean, I'm open to other suggestions too.

netinst has a GUI installer, you just can pick what's going to be installed, so it's a bit less bloated (probably won't save much since dependencies are still the same - but if you don't need some software that goes with Lubuntu or Xubuntu - excluding it will save space)

Hey /fglt/, I need your expertise for a sec.

A few days ago my drive shit itself. Fortunately a few weeks back I installed Linux Mint 18.1 on a USB, so I booted from that. And by installed I don't mean burning the .iso on the USB, but actually installing the whole system on it. Only one problem - it's laggy as fuck and freezes sometimes.

Now, it can't be my specs, even if it's a laptop with i5 2450M@2.5gHz and 6gb RAM it's still above Mint's recommended specs. Can't be the lack of space either, it's a 32gb drive with 5.7 assigned to swap (which as I understand is both too much and uneccesary considering my RAM).
So I tried tweaking it a bit, so far I've done:
-Installed updates
-Checked "Additional Drivers" and installed proprietary Intel microcode
-Disabled some window effects in Mint plus some other tweaks according to this guide https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/mint-cinnamon-first
-Rebooted
-Checked System Monitor, there''s no memory or processor usage spikes at all, it's all running nicely even during the freezing.
-It freezes even when not browsing the internet, just checking local files
The only thing I can suspect is the fact that I'm running it through a USB, but that can't really be the case, as the lag here makes it unusable and pretty much every IT guy has a "portable desktop" on their keychain for troubleshooting.

Also, last but not least, I've tried switching to Ubuntu MATE, thinking it must be the DE, and I had the same problems. Switched to Xubuntu and it's still the same, even after a through wipe (and deleting the partitions of past installs) I get lag. Any ideas?
>>
>>59495324
if you didn't use 'euse -E' removing all use flags should be good enough
>>
>>59495443
It's probably because it's on a USB. Unless it's 3 or 3.1, you're gonna be in the shitter. Even then. the databus restrictions can cause a bad botttleneck and BAM - Overflows and crashes. You best move it over to a cheap 128GB SSD before you shit that Flash Drive out.

Also, just for a tip, if you want a rescue system, get fucking HiRens. I can't state this enough. Even my old IT teacher let me get it for testing. Hirens is the best rescue system but USB is not your friend for any OSs to run off of except ones that are extremely simple.

Thanks, I really appreciate it.

>>59495778
Coming from Windows without much *nix experience it is a pretty steep learning curve, but making mistakes and fixing them is part of the fun. This is just an extended weekend project that I am hoping to turn into my daily driver.
emerge is interesting, and I don't quite grasp all of its arguments or how to read its errors yet, but it's fun!
I would only recommend it to another newbie like myself if they were in it for learning and fun though, because getting it set up coming from an ignorant background like mine makes this process very time consuming.
For instance, I am currently trying to get ffmpeg installed on my system, and it is failing to start because of "unmet requirements." I am currently going through old forum posts and trying to decipher what the man pages are trying to tell me to do, but once I figure this out everything should be smooth sailing.
Hope this helps!

I chose Gentoo specifically because it is said to be harder than others, for the purposes of really learning it! I think I could get up and running really quickly on something like Ubuntu or Fedora, but I would not understand remotely how it works that way and that is what I was going for. Building it from the ground up (even if just reading from the wiki and making minor adjustments) feels like I learned a lot more than just plug and play.
Plus it seems to have a better wiki than Arch. If I could learn how to make compilation run faster it would be great, emerge's load averages never go over 5.00 on my machine.

Having some trouble with bluetooth on mint. If I switch on the luetooth toggle in the system tray, nothing happens.

>distro with support for Ubuntu package center
You mean, that awful GUI front-end to apt (or aptitude) that exists only in *buntu ?
Or, more generally, the apt (Advanced Packaging Tool) packet-management method ?

In the latter case, I would suggest that you install a Debian Stable.
The installer is semi-graphic and at some point, it will ask you which components you'd like to install. You can safely uncheck everything, including the Standard utilities. (you may install those of your choice later)

If you need a GUI on your barebone installation, prefer a Window Manager over Xinit, instead of a full-featured Desktop Environment.

Rule n°1 : don't take too seriously what you can read here. Especially flaming about one's favorite distro or editor.

Manual pages, wikis and blogs will help, but it takes time.

I've started using Ubuntu circa 2012 and quickly moved to Debian, but I still don't master Gentoo or Arch. Or any more complicated distro.

I'm unironically enjoying solus. It looks great out of the box, but I don't get why they felt the need to use yet another package manager. Eopkg is probably the worst part of it. Also, needs more packages. I was surprised to find that fprint isn't in any repos.

How to even rice? I just want to install a font but it won't detect it no matter what. I tried moving the font files to ~/.fonts and also ~/.something/shared/fonts, both ways I tried dropping just the files inside /fonts and also dropping the whole folder. After every try I used that command to rebuild cache or whatever it was and the restarted the computer. Also I changed those symlink things to stop refusing bitmap fonts and start accepting them since the beginning. Anyway the font was never displayed in the GNOME tweak tool, so how am I even supposed to install this shit? This is the font:

You're a naive, gullible idiot, let's be clear.

You won't learn "Linux" that way. If you want to learn Linux, you read the kernel documentation.
You can learn "Linux" the same on any distribution. It's all the same except for a few things (package manager, release type, software policy). It doesn't matter which distribution you use, you can install and use the same software on all.
Only an idiot would use downstream distributions (like Manjaro). Only an idiot would get so invested in 4chan or internet memes and take them for granted without informing himself. Only an idiot would contribute to those by perpetuating them in his posts, like you did.

>>59506088

You can isntall their desktop environment on any other distribution. Only an idiot would install a "new" distribution which doesn't have a tenth of the packages or maturity in the core features (package manager) as the other major distributions have.
>>
>>59506488

You can have a tiling WM (window manager) in your DE (desktop environment).
Your other environment components have nothing to do when "switching from a DE to a tiling WM".

HI /fglt/
I had a custom path in my home directory where I installed stuff that I compiled from source (from git, etc.).
Then I accidentally the bin directory in that directory, so every executable I had compiled was gone, so I decided to go ahead and delete other stuff too, like lib/pkgconfig/*.pc there, because I had that directory in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
The thing is, one of the software I installed there was OpenSSL. I had two versions of it installed on my system, one from my package manager, and one that I installed manually. But now that I removed the one I installed, some programs (that I didn't install myself), like ssh, still look for libcrypto.so and libssl.so in *my* lib directory, and not in the systems /usr/lib directory. Of course it's not there anymore because I deleted it, so they fail with errors like
ssh: error while loading shared libraries: libcrypto.so.1.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I can get them to work if I do
LD_LIBRARY_PATH='/usr/lib' <command>
, but I want a cleaner solution.
When I do pkg-config --libs openssl, I still get paths in my directory, even though I deleted the pc files, and I can't find any others. Do I have to restart or something for the changes to take effect?

Hey, Trisquel sounds like a cool distro! I'm gonna try it!

>The lead developer (Ruben Rodriguez) also works full-time as an FSF sysadmin, and seems to barely have time to develop Trisquel these days. As a result, with a lack of leadership (and Ruben presumably still holding on), the project has stalled and will probably end up becoming a dead distro.

I removed it from xorg.conf.d and put it into a script due to it not working properly after an update. There it should be somthing like
Option         "metamodes" "HDMI-0: nvidia-auto-select +0+0, DVI-D-0: nvidia-auto-select +1920+0 { ForceFullCompositionPipeline = On }"

Configure it. It's using many engines by default. Remove them all and just enable Google.

It also supports bangs btw !tpb jacky chan

I get screen tearing when I watch full screen videos in Xubuntu. Am I stuck with it?

>>59514258
have you tried enabling vsync in the compositor settings (window manager tweaks)?

Why this choppiness happens after opening a video?
It may look small, but it happens to every window opened, even if the player is minimized, and everything goes back to normal after closing it.

It's not tied to mpv, and vdpau should be enabled. I'm using the proprietary nvidia drivers on Ubuntu.

I've been using Ubuntu 16.04 for about a year now. I'm a networking student and I am just trying to learn as much about GNU/Linux as I can. 16.04 has been fine for me but lately it's been really buggy and I'm itching to try out a new distro. Any recommendations? I'm using a Thinkpad T410 by the way. Thank you.

install compton, backend glx, enable vsync

>>59514579
don't start distrohopping
try fixing the issues and learn to use the terminal a lot, that's how you learn the system
>>
>>59514579
use other distros in a virtual machine then find one you like
>>
>>59514639
I'm using the terminal a lot, I've finished a few classes in this program I'm enrolled in that are basically terminal-only.

>>59514328
could just be doing the new screen calculations and your computer cant keep up or shitty drivers

btw what program did you use to record your screen?
>>
>>59514579
Give Gentoo a shot anon, FreeBSD is also a good place to settle

It's kinda weird because it works flawlessly on windows, and thought nvidia's proprietary drivers were decent.

I used ffmpeg to record and then encode to VP8.

Also, why the fuck 4chan doesn't support VP9 yet? got 1/4 of the filesize.

I installed a new 250GB SSD today, however im wondering how i should partition it now. Currently:

WDC WD10EZEX-08M2NA0      01.01A01  WD-WMC3F2480322      sda
Samsung SSD 850 EVO 250GB EMT02B6Q S2R6NXAH302867N sdb
WDC WD10EZEX-00BN5A0 01.01A01 WD-WCC3F0YRU6JN sdc


>sda is where all my 650gb linux and 200gb windows 10 installation are, hoping to move the entire windows 10 system into sdb and only the needed directories from that linux system into sdb
>sdb is the new SSD, ideally having 200gb windows and ~50gb linux here
>sdc doesn't really need to be touched
>>
>>59515295
Having only one OS per drive is nice because you don't have to dink around with dual-booting.

Installed devuan with i3wm and basically nothing else, how the heck do I suspend it when I close the lid? Running pm-suspend as root works but is far from ideal.

>>59515586
>16.04.2
Do you even know how ubuntu's versions work? First is the year, then the month. There's a release scheduled every April and October.

I've installed a Linux. Are you proud now dads?

Anyway it's pretty nice. Still a lot to do and learn but it's a nice change. Took me far to long to install graphics drivers but that was on me.

Any recommendations for things I should set up

Start emacs
press Ctrl+h and then t (release ctrl)
Then google .emacs configs
>>
>>59515812
>not installing emacs-nox so you don't have to use an alias to start the application
