Welcome to /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.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.
*Many free software projects have active mailing lists.

is there a better way to do this (getting the filename without extension for use as a variable afterwards, not merging .srt and .mkv)
#!/bin/bash
for file in *.mkv ; do
mkvmerge -v -o /home/user/Desktop/$file -S $file ${file%.mkv}.srt
done

it works, but I'm curious for other solutions to handle the filenames/variables

>>69324676
Always quote your variables.

Despite primarily being an archive viewer, MComix is surprisingly good for single images. It does, however, seem to lack GIF animation. I'd say it easily beats other simple GTK viewers, such as Ristretto, Eye of Mate, Mirage, GPicView, Viewnior, and LXImage.

Is something wrong with distro installers now?
I put LTSC on my drive after not using Windows for a while and tried to install Xubuntu on a separate partition but no longer get "Install alongside Windows".
If I partition it manually, it always says that GRUB failed to install on dev/sda (which I don't need it on because my boot drive is sdc) but whenever I select it as an alternative drive for the bootloader and click ok it does nothing and there's no way of proceeding.
All the forums I've looked at say it's corrupted installation media but I've tried 3 flash drives.
I've never really had to mess with installers beyond this at any point, so I've hit a wall.

I could run a VM for my use case, but native is just comfier.

Well I can't say exactly what your experience will be since I haven't used a graphical installer in years, so assuming you're using one then I guess it all depends on what options are made available in the menus.

But technically the way it works is you setup the partition layout, then format the partitions to get the filesystem you want (like ext4) and/or to wipe the data on them.
Then you mount those partitions according to how you want them to be on the final install, and then perform the installation.
Anything you don't re-format will retain its data.

In your case you'd only re-format the root partition, then install to it.
I would think any decent graphical installation disk should give you the option of doing that.

running rsync with checksum mode twice should do it. I don't know the exact command

I just manually create an md5sum file and then check the sums when I'm done. I've never caught an error so I worry about it less now.

#get the sums
find . -type f -print0|xargs -0 md5sum > sums.md5
#check the sums
md5sum -cw --quiet sums.md5
#--ignore-missing might be useful if you've deleted files and don't want missing file spam

depending on your computer brand there will be a screen telling you keyboard shortcuts to boot differently, if you haven't disabled it, usually a key like f10, from there you choose an alternate boot device, boot into the usb device and installing the OS should reformat the drive thereby deleting all the old shit.

Anyone else using Manjaro/Arch and jDownloader2 here? I tried installing it using their installer instead of the one from aur (since the logo looks different). And while it does run quite well, I have a problem when it's minimized to the tray. It would look like pic related instead of "jDownloader" and I can't seem to maximize the window if I click it.
