On Fedora + Cinnamon and using nemo as default file manager (or at least trying to).
Nemo doesn't seem to be the default file manager when opening context menus like 'Save As' or 'Open' from an external program. It's only the default when a file manager is opened from something local.
Is there a way around this?

if the hostname macthes and dns points the right ip -> right domain, you can use the old certs still.

Heya, so I was able to FULLY troubleshoot why the game I was playing wouldn't go into my monitor's resolution, however, the solution that I found by going into wine configuration, going into graphics and emulating a desktop will only make this tiny window. How do I get this window fullscreen?
>>
>>81029961
What I mean in general is how do you force all networking to run through tor by default? is it possible?
>>
I've been trying to find out why PulseAudio keeps crackling. I've tried quite a few things like tsched=0, daemon.conf changes, and I can't seem to get it to go away. Anyone have any suggestioons on what I should look into? I considered pipewire but they don't have an echo cancellation module that I need and the PulseEffects one doesn't work.

Sound chip is an ALC1220 if that helps.
>>
>>81030198
why do you even need pulse audio? I only ever use ALSA and have never had any issues
>>
>>81030259
because as soon as you encounter something alsa can't do by default you either have to go down a rabbit hole of badly documented config fuckery or you could just install pulseaudio/pipewire
>>
>>81030130
Nevermind, it was just an issue with the game's menu. Seems like it CANNOT ever go above a certain resolution. Once I load a game, it hits the right res. Though, it would still be nice to get rid of the window for it. How do you make it fullscreen?
>>
>>81029961
Tor is TCP only. Most online games are UDP.
>>
>>81030745
Scratch the games, is it possible to just sorta run everything thats possibly ran through TOR?
>>
>>81030760
Set a default proxy to something like 3proxy on your local machine, have 3proxy send everything through tor.

>>81030771
Mind you I have never messed around with ip routing rules and such so I dont know what you're saying... is there some sort of guide/wiki on archlinux? (Didn't find anything)
>>
>>81030816
It's a fairly simple update to the old way of doing it. Old style Tor guides used to use privoxy or polipo as the middle man local proxy. Dig up an old guide on setting up for either of those, then just use anything but polipo or privoxy (both very out of date). 3proxy is v.fast and lightweight, but goproxy, tinyproxy, anything would do the trick.
>>
>>81030845
This? https://gitlab.torproject.org/legacy/trac/-/wikis/doc/TransparentProxy
>>
>>81030887
That's the paranoid "everything must tor" guide. In linux you can just set a default proxy with environment variables (HTTP_PROXY & HTTPS_PROXY), or KDE has settings built in. If you aren't *that* paranoid, you can just rely on the environment proxy settings to send all TCP traffic through a simple proxy and dodge all the set up on that page.
>>
>>81030259
uhh... because I want sound out of multiple applications at once.

And ALSA's configuration is such a hot mess.
>>
>>81030952
Alsa handles sound mixing by default, has done since before pulseaudio appeared. It's only a few applications that grab the card to themselves that cause a problem. Pulseaudio's config is just as convoluted as alsa, probably even worse since the documentation is shit and it's designed to be machine friendly not human friendly. Pipewire isn't well documented either and is changing weekly while they force meme a new system in to place to support muh wayland, because they suddenly realised they had to make muh wayland viable. So good luck with that.
>>
>>81030922
But if I want all my TCP connections to run through tor I'll need to follow that guide right? (my objective)
>>
>>81031137
Guess so

Haven't updated my Arch install for a month, will it break? What distro should I install if it does?
>>
>>81032587
I've heard it will break if you mass install updates but I don't know if that is true or if a month would be long enough to cause that. I'd say just reinstall arch and keep it up to date
>>
>>81032646
reinstall if it breaks is what I mean not just reinstall without trying to update
>>
>>81030845
Web proxies have nothing do with routing the entire traffic.
>>81030816
You'd essentially route the outgoing TOR IPs as usual but make the localhost a default gateway.
>>
>>81030198
Just use PipeWire as a replacement, no real reason not to.
>>81030616
In winecfg you can also set the maximum resolution of the virtual desktop.
>>81030148
I know TAILS does this by default, if you take a look at their documentation you might be able to figure something out.
>>81032587
Probably not, and if it does, you can probably fix it, but if you are really paranoid, you can also take a look at the Arch news page.

When fucking with the facebook leak data, I'd run grep or ripgrep on stuff and fuck up a regex, which would then lead to hundreds of thousands of lines flooding the terminal instead of the 2-30 I thought up. With that in mind, I'd try to send ctrl-c to the program, but it would still be dumping to the terminal.
Is this because I was using it in WSL, or is it because the terminal's i/o for stdout was freezing all input? It wouldn't even accept the signals from kill for a while.

Is that the whole script? I see nothing wrong with the line you have, though.
Depending on what you'd want done to a file called a.b.c you may wish to use ${p%.*}.jpg instead of ${p%%.*}.jpg but this is almost certainly not the issue you're having. The problem you're having is empty .jpg files with the right names, right?

I really do think you should use one % instead of %% given what you're doing. Using %% means if $dest really does start with .dest you'd be removing literally the entire filename.

On the ohter hand, there's the ssd containing the OS itself (with php, mysql and a apache webserver) that I'd like to clone into the newer one, or don't know which other option I have to avoid installing everything from scratch.
Hope anyone can help me. Thank you in advance!

I don't think you're explaining the problem correctly. This seems like it should be an easy thing to solve but I just don't know what you're asking exactly.
>here's how it looks with $dest/page$1/${p%%.*}
>And this if I run pdftosite.sh on its own with just ${p%%.*}
I don't know what this means. What do you mean "with"? Are you changing the code between runs?

Also I agree with the other anon who said to use a single % sign. If the filename is "one.two.ppm" then ${p%%.ppm}.jpg will turn it into "one.jpg". ${p%.ppm}.jpg will turn it into "one.two.jpg" which is probably what you want.

You don't need a main in shell scripts. Just keep the code at the bottom and it'll be executed after all the other functions are defined.

Also, consider using ShellCheck to check your scripts. It noticed one error in servepdf.sh which I did not fix for you yet.

Try to do the normal things you're used to using your computer for. Web-browsing, gaming, writing, whatever.

You'll probably have to learn how to use your package manager, whether in a graphical program or on the command line. It's basically an app store except everything is free. Make sure you have your terminal as one of your favorite/bookmarked programs.
If you want to truly understand and harness your system, you should some day learn shell scripting and C.

>>
>>81040069
You have to hold shift because some command-line programs are already using ^C (control-c) and ^V (control-v) for other purposes.
For example, you often use ^C to quit a command line program, and you sometimes use ^V to escape stuff like ^C.
Since there's no such thing as control-shift-c to command-line programs (^c and ^C are the same) GNOME Terminal can use control-shift-c for its own purposes.

I don't want to speak for everyone but I honestly get the impression that the average /fglt/ user has been using gnu/linux for many years (and seems older than the average /g/ user in general). So most probably just already have something they're happy with.

Personally I never even look up new distros anymore at all. The only thing that gets me to look into new distros is new package managers. That's where the action is.

>Also, is it possible that things could go really bad and mess up my main operating system?
Only during installation, if you make a mistake (like telling it to format partitions it shouldn't). After it's installed there's no chance it'll mess up your windows install.

The only conflict the two OSes might have is in the bootloader. Sometimes during updates an OS needs to re-install the bootloader. If GNU/Linux installs the bootloader then you'll get an option to boot either OS. If windows installs the bootloader then you'll get no options, because windows is a selfish whore - In such a case your GNU/Linux install will still be fine, but you won't be able to boot it until you repair the bootloader.

The best way to avoid such conflicts is to install them on separate harddrives (each will put its own bootloader on its own disk) and then change your BIOS boot order to prefer the GNU/Linux disk so you'll get a menu to choose which OS to boot.

You have to tell it which hard drive to install on, if you make a mistake and select the wrong one then yes it'll overwrite your existing OS.
Just select the right one, it should be obvious which one to use.

>>81040014
By the way, if you need more help understanding what a script is doing, make sure your first line (not including the shebang) is one of these three:
set -x
set -v
set -xv

They show different things. set -v is likely the least useful for you and set -x is probably the most useful.
>>
>>81042357
Oh I just assumed you'd be going for a distro with a more "user friendly" installation GUI since you're worried about messing up. So yeah I guess you use os-prober then since you're going to be doing it all on the command line.
With Arch you're basically doing the whole disk/partition/format process manually. So there's more opportunities for mistakes, but as long as you don't accidentally type "/dev/sda" when you mean "/dev/sdb" or vice versa then it should be fine.

>Most people say to install the Grub bootloader on the Windows efi partition on the main hard drive
Unless I'm mistaken I don't see the point of that, now would I do that myself. I've heard windows constantly overwrites it anyway so why bother?
The only reason I can see for doing that is if you don't want to change your BIOS boot order, but it's not hard to do. I'd just install the bootloader on the same disk as the GNU/Linux install and then set the boot order to prefer it.

It aims to be a lightweight drop in replacement for ALSA, JACK, and PulseAudio, with security features. I've used it in place of PulseAudio on a few of my machines and it just werks. PulseAudio was also made by Poettering, so that's plenty reason alone for many to switch

>>81042440
Okay thanks. And if I want to boot into Windows will Grub show it? Or will I have to change the boot order in BIOS?

>>81042487
Yes, it's the same. You can actually turn it on and off anywhere in a script with set -x and set +x

Greetings.
After some updates my computer has been freezing and locking up when the monitor is supposed to shut off due to inactivity. I set it to keep the monitor on in power management settings and the problem stopped.
Could someone give me some insight on this? Is it kernel related? Currently on 5.4.0-70

Nice, thanks.

Still can't figure out why $port in servepdf.sh isn't being set to 8000 if the 2nd argument is empty, worked earlier today.

In FVWM I currently use
 
"Decor" style * UseDecor DecorName

to change the Window decoration that I'm currently using, I do the same with modules (panels and other things)
Does any anon know how I would somehow save the current decor that I'm using so that if I would restart my computer it would still use the same decoration that I've used before I restarted my computer instead of always going back to the default?
>>
>>81042568
Actually, I'm dumb. It doesn't like being set to 8000 by the script for some reason, but for some reason doing it manually does. Changing the default to 8080 instead works.
>>
>>81042539
grub will list both OSes so you don't have to change the bios anymore.
The disk that gets boot priority in bios is just which disks bootloader gets used.
>>
>>81041882
Basically yes. One way to do it is boot off a live ISO, chroot to your newly copied drive, check fstab looks ok, run grub-update, should be good to boot. If it isn't it's easy to go back to your chroot point and try again

While your current test for the port variable looks fine when I read it, consider the following construct and whether it might be useful for you:
echo ${port:-8000}
# output is 8000 since port is unset: when port is unset or null here, the default value of 8000 is used
# port remains unset after this
port=69
echo ${port:-8000}
# output is 69 since port is set to 69 and remains set to 69

https://pubs.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/9699919799/utilities/V3_chap02.html#tag_18_06_02
The following is similar:
echo ${port:=8000}
# output is 8000 since port is unset: when port is unset or null here, the default value of 8000 is set, and then used
# port is set to 8000 by the above construct
echo $port
# output is 8000

>To prevent Ulbricht from encrypting or deleting files on the laptop he was using to run the site as he was arrested, two agents pretended to be quarreling lovers. When they had sufficiently distracted him, according to Joshuah Bearman of Wired, a third agent grabbed the laptop and handed it to agent Thomas Kiernan. Kiernan then inserted a flash drive in one of the laptop's USB ports, with software that copied key files.
Was he using Windows or is there a USB device that could copy files merely by being inserted on a Linux system? Eg maybe the FBI knew what DE he used and the USB device emulates a HID keyboard and after insertion presses a shortcut to open a terminal then enters commands to do the copy?

To me it seems like this big push from all the major distros to switch came kind of out of nowhere. But obviously I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject. I just keep seeing it mentioned everywhere it seems.

In case you were wondering devuan is also easy to use imo, would recommend switching from debian

People also say that using certain distros would mean you are forced to rice your desktop. Go figure.

>wicd doesnt work for me on devuan
Extra info?
>>
>>81048752
It connects fine to ethernet, but even while advanced network manager sees and connects to wifi, wicd just says no wireless networks detected
>>
>>81045957
I recommend devuan honestly. Similar position and it's a lot easier than I thought it would be. Only thing I cant figure out is bluetooth, but its nbd

Second kernel panic with Void, I just don't care enough to fix it this time. I've been thinking of dropping the rolling release distros, and maybe go back to more stable ones.
I see people still use Slackware, why? Is it still worth it to install it? What advantages/disadvantages does it have? I have an old machine (10+ years) so maybe Slack will just work if properly configured.

How do I change my system colors, those pale tones are not ideal.

Whay would Canonical have to change for you to like Ubuntu, anon?

Gentoo should be the best distro for old hardware, since you can slim down packages using useflags and also are encouraged to select only the kernel options that you need, are my thoughts correct or not and if not, why not?

What's the relationship between an OS and ricing?

You must be new to computers.
>>
>>81049416
>slim down packages using useflags
IMHO not that relevant. You may save some miniscule amount of RAM yes.
>encouraged to select only the kernel options that you need
You mostly avoid unnecessary modules from being built and installed into /lib/modules, the kernel image itself isn't THAT much smaller.
And building your own kernel is more or less the same in any distro, had them long before trying out Gentoo.

Which iGPU drivers are better, AMD or Intel?

amd

amd, obviously. Open Source. they give a shit. And actively contribute. Nvidia is anti-coonsoomer and anti-competitive.

You are forgetting that compilation will also take longer on old hardware. You can mitigate this by running distcc on a faster machine tho.

Yeah I didn't expect amd to be the answer, to be honest. I'm looking into ultra poorfag desktop pc and couldn't decide if I want an intel or amd. Guess it'll be something like AMD 3400G

I have an Nvidia GPU that I would like to use for forwarding in QEMU which combination with an IGPU works better on Linux?
AMD CPU(Does AMD even have IGPU's? My current AMD processor doesn't) and Nvida GPU or Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU?
>>
>>81026450
>KDE1

Sweet. You can really see how it was easily a decade ahead of CDE which was basically its main competition and the whole point of making KDE was to kill CDE.
>>
>>81050827
>I have an Nvidia GPU that I would like to use for forwarding in QEMU
Nvidia sabotages forwarding their consumer-grade GPUs to VMs. There are ways around it, but they want you to buy Quadro (Workstation) cards for that. Maybe the other way around (Nvidia GPU for the host, iGPU for the VM) works better.
>Does AMD even have IGPU's?
Some desktop models (G suffix, i.e. 3400G, AMD calls them APUs) and most (all?) mobile chips do. Most common Desktop and HEDT models do not.

I'm having some issues with a game running on steam with proton. The game was made for windows xp. So I'm not sure if it's an nvidia driver thing or a 32 bit running on a 64 bit system problem. I can play the game and after a while it will crash saying it's out of memory. If I try accessing the Options it crashes immediately and shows pic related. Any idea?

Tried dual booting arch on my second drive and it failed. When it came time to reboot I booted in to the second drive instead if the usb. It came up with a different install screen with the arch logo in the background. Not sure what I did wrong.
>>
Ok, first off FUCK everyone who said linux 'just werks'
My Arch installation has been slowly destroying itself over the last few weeks and I don't fucking understand what the fuck I'm dong wrong.
One day the wifi stops working, now I can't connect to my wifi using my phone either.
Then today I woke up and found the computer had crashed (Happens when I drop something on it or I hit it...why it happened while I was asleep I'll never know) and now my touchpad tap to click doesn't work anymore...
Seriously why the fuck does shit just randomly break while using linux? It would be one thing if I was going around fucking with config files or whatever but I literally did not do ANYTHING and shit just keeps breaking!
Do I actually need to fucking re-install my operating system every 6 months? Do I actually need to use Plebuntu is I want to get any work done?
I'm literally in the middle of a pretty massive project and having to set my dev environment back up will waste another day at least. Time == Money and Loonix is ironically a bigger waste of money than buying MacOS would have been.
Any advice?

WHY THE FUCK DOESNT FISH SUPPORT SIGINT TRAPS !!!! ????
Has a grreat syntax unfortunately the community are fucking soidevs and focus on stupid bullshit like themeing etc ...
YOU SHOULD FIRST MAKE SURE THAT YOUR LANGUAGE WORKS YOU FUCKING IDIOTS, 16 FUCKING YEARS, STILL HAS NO FUCKING SIGINT HANDLES.
IN THE FUCKING TRASH FISH GOES.
JEEESUS FUCKING CHRIST WHAT A WASTE OF TIME THIS WAS, going back to my fork of tclsh with bash history.
>>
>>81052331
Yeah, ok, it did just werk for me too, until one day out of no where firefox crashed and took out my wifi with it.
Then today my whole laptop was crashed (again it happens when I drop something heavy like a dinner plate on my laptop or hit it after getting raped in skyrim or something never had it happen from nothing so maybe I hit it in my sleep idk) and took out the touchpad with it...
Anyways

What other bugs are there in fish ?
Is there a version that actually supports sigint traps ?
What should i fucking use ? NuShell ? Is NuShell usable ?
For fucks sake I fucking hate some programmers, you know those who are a bunch of RABID NIGGERS and market something as a SHELL which doesnt even properly support user inputs
>>
Ok, seriously I can't fucking understand these fucking retarded ass wiki pages.
Can someone explain, in ENGLISH, how the fuck to enable tap to click on arch linux?
I literally cannot fucking understand this shit (PS if any arch devs are here your wiki is fucking horrible like worse than useless)
thanks
>>
also it looks like my right click and middle click functions (2 and 3 finger taps respectively) have also been fucked up.
Also there are NO files in
/etc/X11/xorg-conf-d
or whatever that directory is
So did fucking arch just delete all my configs or what?
Seriously with each passing day I'm starting to think arch is more and more fucking retarded.
IS there a Debian + Pacman distro??
>>
>XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
Will I encounter problems if I set it to something when I'm not actually using a DE? pcmanfm-qt is being retarded without that set to smth.

>>
Ok, I fixed the tap to click using the wiki.
had to made a libinput config file with one line that says Option "Tapping" "on"
Seriously though why the fuck does shit like this break for no fucking reason on this retarded meme distro?
Can someone PLEASE tell me the distro with
>Lots of packages
>Up to date security patches for web browsers
>NO fucking retarded random shit breaking
>NO (or at least minimal) bloat
I really really prefer pacman + the AUR over fucking apt-get shit but if that's the only way to free myself from this Arch retardation then I'll have to get used to a shittier package manager...
>>
Is NixOS really the future of Linux distros?
Do you prefer NixOS or Gentoo and why?

imwheel is the only solution that I have to increasing scroll speed, xinput list-props has no option for setting scroll speed, but there are strange performance hits on sites with javascript where they are doing something with scrolling and the imwheel behavior of applying 2 scroll wheel actions for every 1 that you do fucks with them. My current solution is a keybind one to kill imwheel and one to run imwheel again. Any other known methods of changing scroll wheel speed?

Devuan. Debian 10 before it worked just fine for me

Tbh slackware might be the most stable though. But devuan allows you to follow debian guides for everything

Just don't set it to a known DE.

export XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP="nigger"

>>81052305
Dude, you are using fucking Arch. I can only suggest you trying an LTS kernel for your wifi fuckery or just install fucking (x)ubuntu or pop os LTS already if you need to work. Arch being for NEETs and tinkerers is not a meme.
Or you're just an apple shill.

You should try Slackware Live from a USB and decide if you like it.
Notes:
* extra and new software are available from slackbuilds
* extra and new software are available from other sources and 3rd party package managers like slapt
* The next release is in alpha and will hit beta next week if you find 14.2 too old.

I actually quite like my tiling window manager setup to be honest. Is there an ubuntu or pop os without any of the bloat?

xinput setprop "your touchpad here" "libinput Tapping Enabled" 1

your touchpad here is ETPS/2 Elantech Touchpad on my laptop. You can find put yours by running
xinput list

Run the command every time you start X (so from xinitrc if you use startx or whatever rc file your DM uses if not). You can also make it permanent by adding a rule to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d.

I just trigger hard on the word "bloat". It's so fucking overused.
But no, you probably just need an LTS kernel, so I'd try this first.
