Devuan came into existence (like Artix) as a protest distro against the then wide-scale systemd adoption among major distros.

I just got trolled hard by my bios. Must have been a stray click, or something, that disabled the UEFI entries for my linux. I seriously just wasted like over two hours reinstalling the grub through a live disk, over and over, and it never worked. I had all this text typed out asking for you guys' help already. Before I sent it, I just went through the bios one more time, and finally found an option hidden inside three others, "boot options: disabled"

So if I add
randomsite.xyz 127.0.0.1:8080
To my etc/hosts file, it'll redirect randomsite to my proxy that's running at 127.0.0.1:8080, right?
>>
>>99790728
Use Arch or Artix, they are simple.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Dual_boot_with_Windows
Grub and osprober packages are quite important for detecting both boot files. My recommendation is using two drives tho.
>>
>>99790759
Why two drives? I have two but I just want to know
>>
>>99790728
If you can understand Arch's installation method and can watch a couple videos about proper Arch maintaince and the like (or read up on the wiki) you'll be fine. Arch is great because community based and has by default cutting edge packages.
>>
>>99790730
That doesn't work the way you think it does. You can't put a port number in etc hosts.

You need a transparent proxy running on ports 80 and 443 for this to work the way you want it to.

Alternatively use some sort of .pac file but not all applications support that.
>>
>>99790771
Ease of use, safety, you can just wipe the win or linux drive incase something happens. Who wants to mess around with gparted incase something happens?

>>99790787
Port is not important, I can set it to 443. It's running at https only mode anyways. So randomsite.xyz 127.0.0.1 would work? I will try it now.
>>
>>99790799
>So randomsite.xyz 127.0.0.1 would work?
Yes.

randomsite.xyz connects to 127.0.0.1:443
Your proxy forwards that on
>>
>>99790730
>randomsite.xyz 127.0.0.1:8080
No, it goes like
>127.0.0.1 randomsite.xyz
as hosts file is about hosts, not TCP or UDP or an other protocol.
Also: don't add the line like that, add randomsite.xyz at the end of an already existing line with "127.0.0.1 localhost".
>>
>>99790815
I forgot that 80 and 443 is not open to regular users. I am running the proxy as sudo lol.

>>99790832
I knew that from localhost file, the ip first format, but I am gonna try that too.
>>
>>99790842
>I knew that from localhost file
Localhost file?
>>99790730
No. Are you perhaps creating a transparent proxy? For the local machine only or is that a router?
Transparently hijacking packets is highly OS related, what OS you running?
>>
>>99790842
>I am running the proxy as sudo lol.
You could also use iptables to redirect the ports

Google:
>iptables transparent proxy
Lots of examples
>>
>>99789344
It has some overhead, but it sounds like you're hitting a game-specific issue.
>>
>>99787565
Once it hits Artix I'm giving it a shot
>>
>>99790875
I should've explained the problem better.
I need to proxy 1 website, this website will be access from browser.
Proxy server is running at 127.0.0.1:8080, if I set firefox to this proxy, everything would get proxy. I just need randomsite.xyz to go thru a proxy while browser is accessing it. How would that work? The changes I made at hosts file didn't work.

Not much of a gamer but I like to play old Roms from time to time. For GBA I used the virtual boy advance emulator, for SNES I used snes9x emulator and for n64 I used simple64.

HELP
I'm on arch and trying to recover a video file that got deleted. I tried to cut the file from my main drive to windows, and when I switched to windows the file wasn't there and it was deleted from my linux drive.

Trying to install testdisk to recover the file, but pacman keeps trying to download an incorrect version (7.1-5) which fails. The current version is 7.2-1 but it won't download it automatically, how do I get pacman to download it?
>>
>>99792599
Flat and smooth just like their brain.
>>
>>99792589
A very vast majority of emulators use OpenGL or Vulkan for their backends and Linux pretty much expects those. Basically all the best emulators that exist currently can be used on Linux no problem, either natively or used in a Flatpak/AppImage.
>>
>>99792589
You can use Retroarch, and a good front end for it. There are plenty of good frontends for retroarch. Give them a look.

See, this is it right here. This mentality is exactly the problem which causes every tiling WM to have 0 decoration.

You're implying that the only reason anyone in the world could ever possibly want to have keyboard control of their windows in a tiled environment is if they are somehow an over-the-top minimalist, who would cringe at the idea of having any decoration at all.
That mentality also implies that tiling is some kind of "sacrifice" people make for performance and maximizing screen space.

My answer to your question is that all your assumptions are wrong. I use tiling because I actually prefer the behavior. It's not something I do to squeeze out performance, to be minimal, or even necessarily to maximize screen space.

Best let your "BIOS" deal with it, just set the fan curves to your liking.

Most audio is transmitted through streaming platforms now, which are still subject to file size limitations in the form of bandwidth. There's nothing preventing you from downloading FLACs for your own local listening, or from using streaming services like Tidal if you truly think your ears are going to perceive a measurable difference.
>>
>>99795311
>so why are we still so stingy with it?
I think people just care more about space saved vs quality. Also mp3 is a dead format. Opus does FAR better quality (in fact almost indistinguishable from lossless at higher bitrates) at a SMALLER file size. It's crazy.
>>
>>99795439
nah, we're just stingy with it. while there are still some examples where making audio smaller than flac is useful, like on a limited mobile connections or to put on old equipment, but generally speaking there's really no reason not to use flac
think about it, video streaming is huge nowadays, and that's mostly well beyond flac bitrates, there's really no excuse for flac or similar to not be the default for a music streaming service
also i'm not the same person

Depends on the scope of your theme.
I assume you want to focus on something like GNOME, KDE, XFCE4, etc.

Since most Desktop Environments are (at least under X11 convention) a combination of discrete:
>DE services and GUI applications
>Preferred widget toolkit
>Window Manager
>...and icon packs. dont ask
you will often have independent theming for each, with the DE providing a sort of master config to set them all at once. This is just a generalization, and with Wayland there's less emphasis on these elements being discrete.

All I know in any personal depth is KDE, and with that you have everything from QT styling for applications like QTCurve, to theming for Plasma Desktop specifics, to kwin-specific themes using lower-level configuration.
There are also theme engines like kvantum which handle most of the inner plumbing and allows you to set SVGs and preview the GUI easily. Pic related is an excellent IRIX theme which uses kvantum.

I'd unironically recommend looking at a theme you like and tinkering with the config files and assets - that's the one good thing about open source lol.
If you link one here with questions there could be answers.

FWIW I use a subsonic clone to stream my own music (will migrate eventually).
In an area with decent 5G, I found FLAC made a noticeable difference in the time it took to buffer on my phone with mobile connection - it made stuff like seeking significantly more janky. And for a device with limited internal storage, I found I could only store like a 16/th of my library in FLAC, which meant A LOT more bandwidth use from recaching music that got pruned due to storage constraints.
Practically speaking I get the same audio fidelity to my ears from 128kbps OPUS, so I just bump it up to 192 for my clients and called it a day.
If I want a FLAC I can just grab it using the web client, which is convenient enough given how rare the need is.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering 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!

It's not minimal like mpv, but I use qmmp for audio. It's pretty lightweight and fast.

Is there a way to get PopOS's pop-launcher on other distros and desktop environments, but it works *exactly* the same in terms of functionality? (Application launcher, terminal command input, and most importantly, open windows that highlight when selected and brings them to the front no matter what workspace they are in) I don't like GNOME and Pop has packages that are a bit out of date, so I just want the exact functionality of that on whatever distro or DE I use.

The closest I've been able to find is Rofi or its Wayland counterpart Wofi but I've been unable to figure out a way to get something that looks the same or similar and functions exactly the same (window manager first upon open, then you type something and it searches applications like rofi's drun) as the pop launcher in that I can hit ctrl+# to launch the stuff there. I'm talking about this thing in pic related:

This was my go-to but apparently there's even more now, like tofi, and rofi also now works on Wayland. Wofi is just as good as the pop launcher but you can customize it, it's got a config file.

exec dmenu --show run

(I think) Except now I think they use bmenu or something else. Man I can't keep track. I don't know how or why you'd want window manager to show after launch.
>>

>I don't know how or why you'd want window manager to show after launch.
It is because I actually make use of multiple virtual workspaces and learned to love auto tiling window management, and having this functionality is excellent for when auto tilers put something behind another window like PopOS occasionally does.

Part of a solution to this would be incorporating some unknown string of text into the password. Like the first 20 hex-represented bytes of /dev/random into a text file. Then adding that to the start/end of a password. Don't memorize those bytes, and copy it to clipboard without seeing them by using xsel (which doesn't work in tty). Also don't use anything which records The clipboard history. The problem then is always being able to shred that file. Like, always have a device on you that can ssh in and shred it, preferably with one or two touches of a button or some sort of easy kill switch. You will lose access to whatever, but no one can get it if that method is used and you active the shredding script.

I mainly want to know a way to copy an encrypted version of my private keys into "the cloud" without worrying. I guess I could encrypt them and put them in Google Drive (delete all your files after 2 years of Google account inactivity) or some other private online thing. But would it matter if it is a public online thing? I guess I could do this (less private and more of a public method): encrypt it then get it to show up in a certain IPFS gateway that I think has a longer than normal file retention duration. Next, don't share the CID at all and only save it to a text file. Unpin and gc after saving it to a CAR file. I could upload it to catbox.moe (does it allow encryption?), but I suspect that that link could be found from enumeration. Archive.org isn't too keen on encrypted files being uploaded there. If I don't do any Internet sharing of it, I could copy encrypted private keys to various local HDDs.

Maybe: have the encrypted full password physically hidden with someone or somewhere. So you have the password to the password, plus other steps. Would have to think on that. Like you could have a thing which renews every so often, and if you don't do something then the password to the full password gets deleted. It could be something automatic, like something to detect that you are in your home, and if you are out of your home for 5 or more hours it gets deleted. 1/2

Crappy rambling at this point, the question is: could you get through being tortured and still have access to whatever that they were mutilating you for? Maybe the answer is to entrust some person with the encrypted full password and they will only give it to you. AND/OR, the full password is only available once per year on a certain date. Make some sort of, IDK, blockchain smart contract which can only emit that data to you or someone on a certain date once a year. Slower access helps a bit, and maybe you could get it to only release the password back-up once every five years. In that case you could hit a kill switch to shred it, but only lose access for 3 years or some duration. 2/2

I don't want to have to stream music. The server is just for storage.
>>
>>99805458
Oh, then ffmpeg and syncthing would work well:
1. Make a directory dedicated to storing the transcoded music that is one-way sync (so you can delete the transcoded files on the server if you want)
2. Make a short shell script to take all the audio files in a directory, transcode it how you want with ffmpeg, and assign the output to the synced directory.
3. Go to the directories with the music and run it (or feed it directories as an argument if you want to batch-process directories)

If you want to do more files in one go, you can plug in the "find" command and have it keep track of directory structure when making output files in the synced directory, but that requires a bit more effort.
>>
>>99795467
Opus is insanely good. You give it a target bitrate and it'll actually transcode at a much smaller average bitrate but it sounds just as good (unless your target is obscenely small but even then Opus is competitive compared to other codecs targeting that same small bitrate. It's no contest)
>>
>>99805552
Hmm I was hoping I wouldn't have to store the transcoded music, even only temporarily.
Ideally the software would:

>Use that database to transcode music into a folder (my phone), with a directory structure of my choice, with cover art also copied over

Nothing can do that. You'd have to checkpoint and restore the program using something like CRIU:

I expect with network facing programs it might not work properly though.
>>
>>99805648
Oh, what I advised above would plug into an active SMB for SFTP mount just fine.
Naturally you should have server/share for either preconfigured on the phone in that case, like with syncthing.

Now that I've read your post, I think what would work for you well would be (assuming android) using MTP with an MTP-aware media client to transfer the music. The only caveat is that the phone will need to be plugged in via USB. A long time ago I used Clementine to do similar:

I could see that with SMB, but if you're using SFTP anyway I'm certain you can get around that by using SSHFS and making a user-owned FUSE mountpoint.

>>99805942
Unless your expecting someone here to compare versioning on thunar and other components, the short answer is that debian in particular is one of the distros which prides itself on stable releases having a minimal amount of bugs and incompatibilities with software.
So if it is truly only broken in Arch, and it is broken due to something actually related to Arch, then it will likely be OK on Debian. If it is a deficiency of Thunar or other dependencies unrelated to Arch, it could also pop up in Debian (or other distros).

Shit I can't even remember which ones I've tried. Definitely tried Rhythmbox, strawberry, pragha and exaile though. These either won't connect to my phone or won't let me select a network folder for the source.

How is it overkill? Because it has to be ran in a browser? Weeks ago, I made something which did that with minimal functionality. Not counting the audio files, it took up about one screenful of text data, so that's small. Maybe I will share the link to that crappy audio player if you're interested.

Technically I don't want to transplant processes from terminal to terminal,
Rather I want to "open" terminal 3, which is running, somewhere, in my system.

What do you mean by "open" exactly? Because you can just

Another weird thing I notice is
killall xfce4-terminal
does work, it closes ALL the terminals I open, EXCEPT that one. It's still there. Which is weird.
I still want to know how to get to it. For now I will play the good ole' turn-it-off-and-on-again. I also want to know where the hell did that terminal 3 come from.

>>99806081
>Rhythmbox, strawberry, pragha and exaile
Man exaile is a name I haven't heard since the mid 2010s. Strawberry is a fork of clementine.
Trying Rhythmbox and Strawberry I encounter issues with MTP that appears to be based on the individual applications' implementation of MTP. Dolphin just werks and doesn't hog the mount (MTP devices can only be accessed by one application at a time).
Digging deeper, it appears my Pixel disables data transfer by default, and the individual players lack the ability to set up the connection in the way Dolphin does for standard file access.

However, I was able to avoid all of that junk and just do a direct user mount of the phone by:
1. Installing jmptfs
2. Plugging in the phone, leaving it unmounted
3. In android, set "Use USB for" to "File Transfer"
4. "jmptfs [name of mount directory]"

You should be able to point whatever music organizer to the mount then.
