Is changing from using GNOME to a DE-less setup with i3 really painful? Meaning, is it going to be a dependency mess?

Should I just reinstall the OS from scratch without a DE or is it as easy as uninstalling gnome's main packages?
>>
>>62799485
What distro are you using? It will probably depend on how well the package manager handles it. Theoretically you could just remove all the packages with gnome in their name but it could cause a dependency mess.

I have two almost identical arch setups.
On my desktop when I reboot/shutdown, it happens immediately, no matter what I do.
On my thinkpad I often have to wait up to 2 minutes because systemd (?) is shutting down either loginmanager or the network share I mounted.
Why? I use identical configurations, lightdm on both and mount the network share the same way in fstab.

Hi, everyone.
>tl;dr plz read it :c

I had previously dual booted Win7 and Arch and got a new drive and I'd like to do it again.
I already have windows installed with its 100MB default boot partition with /dev/sda3 full of free space that I wanted to make my arch install along with 4GB /dev/sda4 swap. I used pic related and followed it because it is almost exactly how I did it last time but used --target=x86_64-efi when I installed grub on /dev/sda entirely.
My problem is, i can get a base install but after i reboot grub only shows Arch linux and no option for windows. My shit solution is that I booted an xubtunu usb and when it installed grub it lets me get back into windows. I've looked for guides but none of them seem to answer my problem
>>
Say I have package A, which depends on the i386 version of package B

Is there any way to switch the dependency of package A to recognize the already installed amd64 version of package B, and have it work that way? Or must I have duplicates?

Hi, /fglt/. I want to install btrfs in a luks container on Gentoo. Reading the documentation, a lot of it revolves around adding a keyfile to a second medium. I'd rather just have Gentoo prompt me for a password when I'm booting up my computer, since I'm only encrypting one partition and will have a separate EFI boot partition. What do I have to do to make this happen? Is it as simple as adding dm-crypt to the runlevel? Does anyone have any experience with this?

I'm just plain dumb then. The instruction of the site is a long text explaining "open the ubuntu software center and click on install hurrr".

>>62801919
>How can I do it using that .deb package?
Download on it and double click. Or use dpkg -i path/to/the/sil-repository.deb
That should register their repo with software center etc so do and update to refresh the list of packages then search for the package you want again.

When you upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu after originally doing a minimal install, does all the bloatware that comes with a regular install get included with the upgrade?
>>
>>62803151
>after originally doing a minimal install
no, it should just upgrade to newer versions of the current packages. The thing to watch for is when new stuff gets added to metapagackages like gnome-desktop. But for a minimal install that shouldn't be an issue.

It is not worth the trouble to use copyleft for most small programs. We use 300 lines as our benchmark: when a software package's source code is shorter than that, the benefits provided by copyleft are usually too small to justify the inconvenience of making sure a copy of the license always accompanies the software.

For those programs, we recommend the Apache License 2.0. This is a pushover (non-copyleft) software license that has terms to prevent contributors and distributors from suing for patent infringement. This doesn't make the software immune to threats from patents (a software license can't do that), but it does prevent patent holders from setting up a “bait and switch” where they release the software under free terms then require recipients to agree to nonfree terms in a patent license.

Among the lax pushover licenses, Apache 2.0 is best; so if you are going to use a lax pushover license, whatever the reason, we recommend using that one.

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.

Is the FSF still salty that Hurd never really took off?
>>
>>62804263
It's time to face the facts. Richard Stallman is nothing more than a whining, overly obese autistic manbaby who has not done anything beneficial for the computing OR technology world in the past 20 years. Seriously. Name something that RMS has done after 1995 besides bitching, crying, and moaning about bullshit that does not matter, or making some retarded, incomprehensible speech.

He demands that Linux be called GNU/Linux. That is fucking insane. The only reason GNU, GPL, and FSF are still a THING is because of Linus and the invention of Linux. If anything, Stallman should rename GNU to Linux/GNU, because without Linus, the GNU, GPL, and FSF would not be a thing anymore.

Stallman still has the fucking gonads to act like he's superior to everyone else. Saying shit such as "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone" right after Steve Jobs' death. What an asshole. Stallman has not even programmed a single line of code since 2008, that was AFTER he essentially stopped in 1992.

He should be fucking grateful Linus stepped in to save his ass, and even allowing him to take partial credit for his achievements. If it wasn't for Linus, he would be nothing, he would probably be dead in a Burger King dumpster right now.

Besides, what has he ever even done? He claims to have written eMacs, but in reality he actually cloned gosmacs (the first eMacs that was made for UNIX). He didn't even write 50% of the code in eMacs.

You might say he wrote GCC and GDB, but the truth is that he initally wrote the C compiler, but now the vast majority for the same compiler is done by contributors.

He's a washed up, morbidly obese man who tries to stay relevant by having these retarded arguments that are similar to those found in the Soviet Union. Face it GNU/Freetards, Richard Stallman is a fat dickhead, and the only reason his name is still in the books is because of Linus's achievements.

I know its bait, but for people who don't know:
a) The GNU system isn't about competition.
b) The GNU system got its goal (a free system for everyone to use in fredom) when adding Linux.

HURD is not a high priority project, just a bunch of people actually work on it in their free time. Pretty retarded to compare HURD development with Linux development at these conditions tbqh.

When you have installed i3wm via your package manager, your DE (if it's nice) should provide a session for you at the login screen.

Last time I tried it, it worked with Ubuntu and LightDM. Which distro and DE do you use?

I realize I'm going to get absolutely shit on for this.

I use Manjaro - OH NOOOO

Anyway wine-staging 2.18 is out in the official Arch repos, but of course Manjaro has to complete meme testing before pushing it to their own repos. I, however, want the latest version now.

What would be the easiest and cleanest way to install wine-staging 2.18 straight from the git source on my system? Yes I'm a noob. I thought I could just make my own makefile or whatever, but since it's already in the repos, I couldn't really put it on there could I. (?)

Two GPU questions, both amd r series cards.

1. How can I confirm drivers are working? One game I've played (only game I've actually played on gnu Linux) said it was using CPU rendering and ran like shit. Said GPU drivers weren't working

Also my second card (not running in crossfire, different series) can't do video out so I want to use it just for rendering. How do I check if its actually working or not? On windows CPUs said its memory clock rate and GPU clock rate were zero. The cards known faulty but no diagnosis is done

dood just add an arch server that should have the package to your pacman.conf and
pacman -Syy
, then
pacman -S your-package

Canonical is the botnet. Do not trust Canonical.
Community editions like Xubuntu shouldn't be as cucked as vanilla Ubuntu tho.

Currently no GNU/Linux distro has any botnet. The only version which actually had some crap was the Ubuntu version with Unity (the spyware was a DE-only thing). Sinc it was changed to opt-in and unity died anyway, there's nothing to fear; choose what you want!!

Cool, good idea; how exactly did you do this though.

I tried adding:
# Arch Linux repository mirrorlist
Server = http://mirror.us.leaseweb.net/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch
Server = http://archlinux.polymorf.fr/$repo/os/$arch
Server = http://mirrors.kernel.org/archlinux/$repo/os/$arch


per these instructions-
http://saleem-khan.blogspot.com/2014/07/10-easy-steps-convert-manjaro-linux.html,

to pacman.conf, then pacman -Syy but nothing. Also tried adding it to mirrorlist and nothing.

I assume I have to have
[server name]
in pacman.conf but what's it called? How does pacman know to use the Arch servers rather than the memejaro ones?

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

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

Τhere really is an Android, and these peοple are using it, but it is јust a part οf the system they use: Android is the interface: the prοgrams in the system that interacts with the user. Τhe interface is an essential part οf an οperating system, but useless by itself; it can οnly functiοn in the cοntext οf a cοmplete οperating system. Android is nοrmally used in cοmbinatiοn with the Linux operating system: the whοle system is basically Linux with Android added, or just "Linux". All the sο-called "Android" operating systems are really just Linux operating systems.

The GNU Project is a project dedicated to making an entire, fully functional operating system composed entirely of free software. While GNU is Unix-like, it's not Unix. In fact, GNU is a recursive acronym for "GNU's not Unix". The common distribution of their operating system is with use of the kernel "Linux", thus making the complete system "GNU/Linux".

"Setting up" Arch manually takes a short amount of time. Installing it manually and not using abstractions that introduce bugs is one of the core premises of the distribution.

You are an absolute retard because you cannot comprehend that. On top of that you are a pretentious retard who thinks using Arch makes him cool. It is obvious that you are a retard who doesn't even need the distribution, because you're installing it like that. You are also a retard for perpetuating myths and memes on here. Consider killing yourself to spare 4chan and people the bandwidth.

tl;dr: you are a retard

The premisse of Arch Linux is building a fragile system from ground up in order to enjoy surprises and adventures, Arch Linux is pretty popular among borderline patients, since it helps them feeling themselves, pushes the adrenalin when running updates and the daily riddle how to fix broken things keeps the paarients busy. I'd highly recommend Arch for disabled people all-the-way, but for daily use? Nah,

>>62806205

Arch is a rolling-release distribution, using Pacman as its package manager with binary packages, which does minimal patching or changing of software from upstream and which includes non-free software in its repositories.

That's the normal person definition. Keep playing your retarded children games and bike-shedding your superficial knowledge stemming from memes, retard. Alternatively consider killing yourself again.

I can't figure this out. How do I make rm to execute rm-safe and make rm-true to execute rm?

With the following fragment in my .bashrc, all calls to any of them calls on rm-safe.

What am I doing wrong?


rm-safe(){
echo "Thanks for using this instead of rm, as it's safer and allows for easy file recovery."
mv "$1" /media/Data/.Trash/
}

alias rm-true=\rm

alias rm=rm-safe

>>62806307

Use a CLI program implementing the Freedesktop trash specification. For example:
https://github.com/andreafrancia/trash-cli

It has the advantage of being properly thought out and dealing with use-cases, such as what happens when you delete a file named the same as an already existing deleted file, amongst others.
>>
>>62806347
>>62806396

Thanks for the answers! Not working though. I tried the trash-cli one, but it doesn't solve the current problem, as I want to make "rm" to invoke a safe alternative while the true rm is accessible by other name (rm-true).

I'm assuming some people here have some sort of set up like that. Can you share your .bashrc fragment?

I feel like this is actually simple, but I can't wrap my head around it.

Hi guys, I need some help. I installed Manjaro Linux on my laptop and everything was working fine, installed everything etc. etc. but then I realized I was on my intel gpu and not my nvidia gpu.

Thanks for the answers.

I've reached to the conclusion that aliasing rm is bad practice and I should get used to a different command for deleting aliased to trash.


On a different note, I can't get trash-restore to work. It doesn't restore anything because the actual files are being sent to a different trash folder.

This is what happens when I delete something on my SSD (rem = trash).

[ian@styx test]$ rem -v something.txt 
trash: Volume of file: /media/DataSSD
trash: Trash-dir: /home/ian/.local/share/Trash from volume: /
trash: found unusable .Trash dir (should be a dir): /media/DataSSD/.Trash
trash: Trash-dir: /media/DataSSD/.Trash-1000 from volume: /media/DataSSD
trash: 'something.txt' trashed in /media/DataSSD/.Trash-1000



And this is what happens when I delete something from my HDD.

[ian@styx testing]$ rem -v something.txt 
trash: Volume of file: /media/Data
trash: Trash-dir: /home/ian/.local/share/Trash from volume: /
trash: found unsecure .Trash dir (should be sticky): /media/Data/.Trash
trash: Trash-dir: /media/Data/.Trash-1000 from volume: /media/Data
trash: 'something.txt' trashed in /media/Data/.Trash-1000




So when I run
trash-restore
it says
No files trashed from current dir ('/media/Data/00/testing')


Anybody know what kind of fuckery is going on here? I haven't found anything about this.

still the same problem:

i have a raspberry pi running a samba server for local file sharing. No problem to access with windows (Windows username is the same as samba username)

now i want to access the files and folders with my linux laptop (different username as samba username) and get the Error "insufficient rights"

mounted the share in /etc/fstab

//<Server>/<folder> /home/<user>/nas/<folder> cifs credentials=/home/<user>/.share_nas,x-systemd.automount,user 0 0
//<Server>/share /home/<user>/nas/share cifs credentials=/home/<user>/.share_nas,x-systemd.automount,user 0 0


my ~/.share_nas contains the same user and password i use to access samba from windows and looks like this:
username=<user>
password=<password>


when i connect directly to the samba folders with
smb://<Server>/<folder>
, it takes the correct login and i can access every file.

how do i need to edit the fstab so that it automounts with the correct credentials and grant me access to the shared files?

Here is a taster.

Introduction
Free software is a hidden issue to many especially I feel within the educational system, I have written
the following to hope to educate the school on the issue and find a solution. When many people
hear the term free software their first thought is that the argument is that soft ware should exist
with out cost, this issue stems from a lack of definition in the English language, when discussing
free software one should think free speech not free beer,in German rederfreiheit not kostenlosbier .
1.2
Common argument
Many people use the fact that free software has never been in any countries or organisations consti-
tutions make it irrelevant, I dispel this argument simply by stating that had the bible been written
in 1946 the 11 th commandment would have likely stated “You shall not enrich uranium”.
1.3
On freedom two
Many people feel that the inclusion of freedom two makes free software incompatible with our modern
monetary system as it would not allow to make money from software. This has shown to be false
many times, the creator of Emacs (a free editor) made an income from selling it despite that any one
could obtain it for free, on top of this the European Union commissioned report on displacement of
sales 1 caused by piracy found little evidence of sales being lost to piracy, a direct quote “In general,
the results do not show robust statistical evidence of displacement of sales by online copyrights
infringements. That does not necessarily that piracy has no effect but only that the statistical does
not prove with sufficient reliability that there is an effect.” this shows that free software can exist
with all software with out major effects on income to software developers.

>Also my understanding is that the propietary drivers arent even in developement or installable on 25/26

fglrx, the old driver is not usable on new systems and for newer cards.
amdgpu-pro, the new driver works only with recent systems and recent cards. If your cards is supported by amdgpu-pro then you should be able to use it.

fglrx doesn't work on new systems because it depends on legacy shit. Its code is such a clusterfuck AMD decided to scrap it and started to work on a new driver called amdgpu-pro which however only supports recent cards.

are you sure the command "sudo pacman -r /mnt -Syu" I did on liveboot manjaro isn't the issue?

had arch before Manjaro but ran into too many issues that I couldnt be asked to fix. I want to learn more about Linux, but don't want to spend hours fixing some stupid small issue.

>>62808112
>>62808144
Anyways, when I perform Ctrl+Alt+F2 I can log in and perform "startx" or "startx xfce" to boot into my DE. It looks really crappy and things like my wallpaper/Thunar/firefox/etc don't work.

PLEASE HELP :(

>>62808797
You have a downstream distro that is no longer working, no one is going to help you because you chose a downstream distro.
Go on the manbungo forums and ask them there for their "specialized" retarded setup.
You have every thing and the kitchen sink not working
Install vanilla arch and come back

>arch has problems
No, you had problems because you couldnt read a wiki on how to install it nor could you type in 10 commands to make a base install.
>>
>>62808797

You can learn "Linux" on any distribution. You use the same software on all, except the package manager. As the person above said, you're doing retarded things and you insist on them, despite being told otherwise.

Anyone else see their system stop booting after installing and running a DE?

i dont have time for that. Manjaro is more stable and a more noob-friendly alternative with AUR

>>62808850
what retarted things am I doing? Removing openssl is what fucked things up, because apperently openssl-1.1.0 is COMPLETELY different from openssl-1.0.1. Now only one simple command in a liveboot assigned something wrong, which should be very easily fixed if I only knew how.
The only thing that I'm being told is to install vanilla arch. How is that even helpful?

>>62808870
manjaro worked perfect for months, no issues at all. All this shit started when i changed openssl because Clementine wouldn't launch due to missing/faulty lib files
>>
>>62808905
We don't recommend any DE because it's a subjective matter.
>>
>>62808867

First off all, what does stop booting even mean? Secondly, something is telling me you didn't install the video drivers and Xorg is failing to start. But who knows, because you don't provide any information nor do you check logs yourself.

Arch uses VANILLA packages DIRECTLY from UPSTREAM.That means the developers have spent time doing development and testing and have decided to push a stable update.
This tactic never works. And you look silly.

>i dont have time for that. Manjaro is more stable and a more noob-friendly alternative with AUR
And yet here you are on a Sunday Morning bitching about how manjumbo FAILED you.

I've been using arch for 9 years. Never have i had an issue arise that wasnt:
1. Listed for manual intervention on the FRONT PAGE
2.Outdated config that i failed to update to the new versions syntax.

Did you run an arch live USB on a manjaro install? If so, you probably grabbed AUR packages that should be handled by manjaro's repositories lmao

When you want to convince someone, you shouldn't start off with a defensive position and talk about arguments against it.

You want to sell a product; talk about the benefits of your product and make the people *need* it. Let them feel that they are in a safe position, thanks to your product.

>>62810225
Fedora without systemd is like 4chan without anime.
>>
>>62810225
No. If a binary distro is systemd based, then you cannot use it without systemd. You might select another init system in debian but that's it.
If you wanna go memed free, either use a binary distro which doesn't have it at all or get a source distro which allows you to configure a systemd free setup.

unmask the new version and install that. Or go git-deep and install the 9999 version which pulls sources right from the development tree.

i use manjaro with cinnamon as de and nemo as file manager. only one thing disturbs me:

characters like _ or [ at name beginning are ignored for sorting, so my folders are ordered like this:
A, B, C, [D], E


i want it to be sorted like this:
[D], A, B, C, E
.

how can i manage that?

Your sorting is fucked, check settings but it looks like you need a better file manager such as spacefm
>>
>>62811932
It's the LC_COLLATE environment variable that needs to be set. You probably want "LC_COLLATE=C"

How are you starting your DE/WM? If you're using "startx" then it'll automatically pick up your environment from ~/.profile or ~/.bashrc so you can define them in there.
If your DE/WM is started automatically by a log in manager then you have to put it somewhere else that I can't remember.
