/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 and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

How the FUCK do I get rid of Amarok?
I am running Kubuntu 16.04 and I want to get rid of fucking Amarok? It simply does not behave as ordered, doesnt seem to recognize any of my songs, the interface is a mess and it runs IN THE BLOODY BACKGROUND ALL THE BLOODY TIME. If I use my multimedia keys on my keyboard it jumps to the occasion and just starts playing stuff. no matter what player is currently active. I doesnt open a window, mind you, it just sits somewhere undiscoverable in the background.
I tried removing it from the software center, but it doesnt seem to be installed there.
I did not install it myself, it came with the distribution.
All google searches either bring up "how to remove any trace of KDE" or "how to install Amarok"

WTF?

You're missing a *

what does ^ really do? the description isn't that good for it

what would "^Test" do?
>>
>>64283030
matching doesn't start at the beginning of a line by default, it just starts wherever the matching starts. "one.*two" would match any lines that contain the word one before the word two with anything in between. "^" matches the start of the line.

>>64283231
that makes sense, now to see if i can actually do something more advanced with it. let's say i have a text file with several lines of IP addresses and i want to grab lines that has "193.3.202" or "193.2.202" and those lines have to be from the user root

would it be grep -E '^user=root.*183.(2|3).202' file.txt?

find the exact model of your network card, should be able to find it with

It's good enough, but the periods will match any single character. To specify only a period you escape it with \.

that would actually work? even if the line is something like "bla bla 183.3.202.290 bla bla user=root bla bla"?

also where do i put \?

Then something's wrong with your ls. ls -l /etc will print the contents of /etc, in ls long format, which includes the permissions of the files.

If you only want the permissions of the directory itself, add -d to list or use stat like >>64285090

Some commands(it's very rare) don't accept input file names, so you would end up using cat to pipe the file to the process.

Another use only in scripting(usually with read/mapfile) is to pipe a command to another but run the command in the current process instead of a subshell, e.g.:

~ $ echo a b c d e | read first second rest
~ $ echo "${first}: ${second}: ${rest}"
: :
~ $ read first second rest < <(echo a b c d e)

In the first case, read is run in a seperate subshell(process) so the variables it sets aren't useful because they disappear as soon as the command is done. You can also use the lastpipe shopt instead of the < <() hack.

It's also used(in scripting as well) to read from a file descriptor.

< isn't the most used shell feature but it does have a few uses.

I'm assuming you want /dev/sdb2 since your first post said /dev/sdb. Although it's not labeled as such, you can probably mount it anyway. Try doing it manually

# mount -t ntfs /dev/sdb2 /mnt


If it fails, look at the end of journalctl and post it. If it succeeds then everything is fine, you can add it to /etc/fstab possibly with systemd automount option if it's removable storage.

If it's NTFS and you want to write to it, install ntfs-3g and mount it with that instead of ntfs. The NTFS linux module only supports reading from NTFS.

I don't know about virsh but can't you just automate booting your VM? Run the boot command, then run your virsh commands all in one.

Is that a single static command you're running 11 times? Or is it 11 different commands like?

virsh vcpupin win10 0
virsh vcpupin win10 1

Either way you can shorten it with a loop, seq | xargs, or whatever.

>>
>>64289330
Is the gpu related to acpi?
>>
>>64289330
That's odd, were you doing anything critical when you hit the button? If it's stopping you from booting try going into grub edit and passing fsck.mode=skip to the kernel parameters. systemd will skip the corruption check and might boot just fine.

For the reset button, install acpid and configure what the reset button does(e.g. just run the reboot command).

>>64289344
No, not really. A GPU does have power states that fall under ACPI but doesn't really apply here.
>>
>>64289414
Nope I just had my web browser on. I tried shutting it down with the gui but the menu didn't pop up so I typed reboot into the terminal and that did nothing. I decided to hit the reset button after the hd activity light went off.
>>
>>64289461
Ignoring the cause of the filesystem corruption, are you configuring acpid?

Where you doing anything critical recently, like a system update? I ran into some problems a couple years ago with a kernel panic after an update, slow HDD and the updated files weren't flushed to disk when it froze. Hard reset, fsck obviously ran but recovered fine but I booted into a broken system, a lot of regular system binaries were fucked because they were in the process of being updated.

Although it's different, at the filesystem level there's very few things I can think of(apart from a failing HDD) that would cause that.
>>
>>64289414
Awesome that worked.
I think the cause was the same thing that caused my first "corrupted" file system. I had a vm running i was overclocking my gpu. I set the clock too high and windows just went black so i forced the vm off.
The first time my file system was corrupted i forced the vm off without ejecting the graphics card and it made the host freeze. This time it didnt freeze entirely but i couldnt shut it down or use the terminal.

>I tried shutting it down with the gui but the menu didn't pop up so I typed reboot into the terminal and that did nothing.
That actually sounds like a kernel panic(as seen from a desktop environment). This could explain why your filesystem was left in a broken state, especially if it was a driver related to your filesystem or disk.

Anyone running opensuse got a problem when booting up recently? Ie boot taking too long - as in tens of minutes to load up the background and let you use webbrowser and similar

It's hard to say, you might actually have had a kernel panic or your system partially halted for some other reason.

If it was the disk or the disk driver, finding logs to diagnose isn't easy because if it can't write to disk then you won't have logs.

Just keep using your system, if it happens again try to find out what triggered it then trigger it on purpose with journalctl -f open. Hopefully it's just a software error, hardware faults are more expensive.

What part of playing games do you honestly think are inherently dependent upon OS?

The vast majority of cases in which one OS can't seem to do something that another OS can it mostly boils down to some shit company that spent a lot of money to brainwash retards and developers into thinking they had to use their locked down version of something until they've essentially created a monopoly out of people's inability to escape once they've taken the bait.

Dont drop C++, not for python. The scripts you see us type are to make some wizardry stuff, you dont need any of this for day-to-day use if you like GUIs, and beginners even less because they use a distro like Ubuntu (I rather recommend PCLinux) which is handholding all the way.

You can use C++ on linux too, python is just the language with a billion libraries to write your quick scripts.

It is more comfy to use these things on linux though.

protip: All that big bad scary stuff that you've been brainwashed into thinking is difficult really isn't that difficult.

Here's all you need to know in order to do just about anything on GNU/Linux and fool your friends into thinking you're a l33t haxxor:
Just. Fucking. Google. EVERYTHING.
It's really that easy. Even the most obscure error you can get, or the weirdest customization you can think of, that you'd think couldn't possibly turn up on a google search will in actuality end up being the first hit on a google search.
That being said though, these days you can get by without even doing that. Just depends on what distro you want and how specialized your needs are.

Also python is fucking easy and intuitive. If you know any other programming languages at all then you can probably learn basic python in 20 minutes.

This. Just a minimal effort and thought put into it. Everything can be found (sometimes too much for your own good). The chances are, that if you run into a problem almost certainly someone else did the same before you, and discussed it somewhere.
>>
>>64290814
This is somewhat true. I pretty much googled myself into a job.

What programs would benefit most from compiling locally?
>>
>>64291111
the kernel, any program that you want custom build options for.

You won't see much performance difference just because -march=native -O3 something, and it likely won't make up for the time spent compiling it.

So i've put pyllyukko's user.js in my firefox and now html5,x264 and webm's are no longer loading and are showing up disabled on youtube.com/html5.I looked in the config but i wasnt able to find what was disabling these.Would anyone point out what settings disable these options?

-the kernel

Why would you use something made by asshubby?

>>64291204
Open the console(ctrl+shift+k), reload the page. Any relevant errors?

>>64289133
Editing the cmd line seems to launch urxvt but as you suspected it only cds into the directory the program is located in and doesn't actually run it. How would I go about exporting those variables you mentioned into my build script?

Depends on how that json file is used and what interface you're given. If there's no proper way to get the filename in your JSON config then you are likely using it wrong.

The basename/dir variables are irrelevant, you can that in bash with "$(basename "${file}")" and "$(dirname "${file}")". You just need to find out how to get the filename itself, read the docs of whatever you're using.

is it virtualbox not working, or linux? distro is alpine
>>
>>64292272
does your kernel include efistub support?
>>
>>64292272
That's not linux, it's the virtualbox emulator of UEFI shit of whatever.

There's gotta be a way to make it use legacy bios instead, UEFI solves no problem and just creates headaches.

>>64292291
As far as I can tell from that image, the kernel isn't even loaded yet.

i want more than 4 partitions
also i think not needing a bootloader is pretty cool

>>64292272
I think you need to enter fs0: first
also use \vmlinuz

>uefi for linux inside a vm

>>64292394
maybe he just wants to try it out before installing on real hardware
>>
>>64292338
Which you can do with extended partitions or use lvm. Also grub installation is automatic when installing a modern distro and you don't need to touch it ever again.

I fucking hate UEFI and emulating it just seems retarded.

Someone early in thread for first timers to go with Ubuntu rather than mint or debian. Why? I am long time windows user and want to try something new and after doing the flowchart i ended up at Mint. Why is mint bad?
>>
>>64293255
>Someone early in thread for first timers to go with Ubuntu rather than mint or debian. Why?
Because Ubuntu ships with firmwares and proprietary drivers. Debian doesn't have those by default because they are not free software and believe me nothing makes gnu+linux first timers more mad than non working wifi.

>Why is mint bad?
-literally a reskinned ubuntu
-shit security:

-they do a "Franken Debian" by mixing ubuntu and debian packages like a retard.

teal;deer: start with ubuntu. Don't like the default looks? Kubuntu, Xubuntu, ubuntu-mate and Lubuntu has your back.

How do you make chrome javascript in video? I tried hulu and it only works on FF.

I installed the right shit also because it tells me I got java installed when I run java -version.

Will suck 10 dicks for this.

Open JDK.

You're welcome.
