Is he right? Should you not use a DE and do everything on the terminal?
>>
>>83826055
do you guys all not have jobs

>>83826062
Yes I do. I derail threads with blacked porn. I'm a very proud American.
>>
>>83826055
Use whatever the fuck you want, don't let a bald schizo tell you what to do! :)
>>
Why not both?
There are things you can do on the terminal and other things that's better to do on a GUI.
Just do what's better for you.
>>
>>83826079
But he said it's better for productivity and recently I've found a way to watch anime on the terminal
https://youtu.be/4kVJA1CEXp8
>>
>>83826055
No, he's an idiot. He doesn't even know what a "terminal" even is.
>>

Can you name things that are quicker to do on the GUI?

GNOME's built-in file search already does that much better and with 0 configuration needed.

scrolling threw an assortment of images, browsing the internet.
>>
>>83826144
But I don't want to Download anything, you can just type the name of the anime, select the episode and it will stream from the website to you video player, much easier and faster than either browsing or downloading
>>
having a DE like KDE + a tiling WM is peak comfy
>>
>>83826128
Blender, Krita, GIMP, a DAW, anything artistic basically.

No, it's a meme. They both have their use cases. Installing packages? Terminal. Editing videos? Gui.

Just use pop OS

You shouldn’t even use a display manager. Richard Stallman doesn’t use one unless strictly necessary. But the clown OP posted doesn’t even know how to use Emacs.
>>
>>83826055
imagine taking tech/IT advice from a langfag
>>
>>83826192
this assumes you already have the files downloaded.
also if you're downloading anime even dubbed anime the file names are going to be in Japanese language in latin script literally no one remembers what the names are let alone able to spell it correctly. sure it works for things like naruto but anything else you're not going to be able to just type what you need
>>
>>83826111
It's better for productivity if all you use is a terminal emulator lelelelel, otherwise you're genuinely making your live harder just because.
>>
>>83826128
Maybe not quicker but more practical.
You prefer using Gimp or ImageMagick?
>>
>>83826224
>You shouldn’t even use a display manager. Richard Stallman doesn’t use one unless strictly necessary.
That's because he grew up in the 70s and 80s and is nostalgic for that era. There is no advantage to terminal-by-default for anybody.

You can edit on ffmpeg
>>
>>83826128
photo editing
video editing.
3D modeling
video games.

also web browsers are GUI
>>
>>83826256
you can make minor adjustments on ffmpeg but even then its a shit way to edit video

>>83826269
You can use links, but lynx or browsh. But on the modern web isn't practical
>>
>>83826309
But the post asked: Can you name things that are quicker to do on the GUI?
not: name things that have no alternative other then GUI

lynx and terminal based web browsers are horrible for browsing the internet. they might be "faster" but how much does that matter if you are seeing a botched page or not even loading the whole thing
>>
>>83826229
Just watch the video, the script he's using scraps from some anime streaming website, you don't need to download anything and it's faster

not really. it's just that if you're an emacs poweruser, you don't need to leave the program too often.
>>
>>83826224
Emacs itself benefits from being run in a real graphical environment. You have everything the ncurses frontend provides, plus many more features including, but not limited to:
>proportional/variable width fonts
>images/documents
>better mouse support (you can turn the menubar into a context menu, saving more space)
>multiple visible frames
>more colors

Stallman, like everyone else, is free to do whatever the fuck he wants on his machines. That doesn't mean it's the best thing to do.

>>83826358
Nobody is discussing CLIs alone.
The "terminal" encompasses CLIs and TUIs, which lynx and others are.
>>83826309
Links and Lynx are great mostly for looking at the arch install wiki when you forgot something and don't have X installed yet.
I haven't used browsh yet but I have little hope for any TUI browser.

And this is where we get into meme territory. Not a single sane video editor would ever edit a video without even being able to even see what they're doing. Grow up. Get a job.

>>83826055 (OP)
>>83826062


I write software at a FAANG company. I do all my work in neovim, tmux, and command line utilities. lf for a file manager. I watch our build system with newsboat and some utilities I wrote myself. Neomutt for email. We have an IRC bridge for slack. All our build/deploy/code review automation is cli.

At home I do creative work and use GIMP, Blender, OBS, and Inkscape.

Sometimes I use ffmpeg for video editing, but only for repetitive tasks that I've already scripted. I'm not in the terminal farting around with ffmpeg for one off tasks.

There is work you can do in the terminal only, but the question is why do you care? My priority is minimizing mouse use and automating workflows. I could give a shit where it actually runs.
>>
terminal is good for many things, but for others it's pointless. I disagree with his aversion to emacs as I think having everything in one place is a cool idea though.
>>
imho tiling only works well on terminal applications, and tmux does all the tiling I need to manage said applications, not to mention tmux is a godsend if you ever work on remote servers. for regular desktop use I use a DE like a normal person, my desktop runs KDE well, I used to run XFCE on my laptop but eventually found out you can take 3 minutes to set up Openbox to do everything XFCE does but better and with fewer resources.

>>83826589
Pretty much this.
Simple tasks like basic text editing? I use VIM
Complex shit like R and gene alignment, where visuals matter and I need to see lots of shit? I'll use a GUI program like RStudio or MEGA

>>
>>83826055
Only if you are trying to go as minimal as possible or fucking hate widget/mouse-oriented GUIs for whatever reason.
If you want to use a particular standalone window manager, may as well do it on top of LXQt instead of stringing together a bunch of apps, scripts, and configs just to do what it already solves.

It's now seven years or so since I switched to Linux. There are very few tasks I do with any frequency now where using a GUI is faster than a terminal.

Once you start learning how to decompose tasks to solve them in a terminal / shell, your productivity will increase multiplicatively.

FFMPEG is good for converting shit to another format or cutting part of a video, if you want to EDIT it's more practical to use GUI programs

No one knows what I use because I don't talk about it. I just do my work.

I think tmux is pretty common in linux and OSX shops. We have a few dozen vim users that I'm aware of and a handful of spacemacs users.

There's zero evangelism for any kind of tool, editor or whatever. People just submit their change requests and no one cares what happens before that.

Ops guys larping as devs are the only ones I've seen talk about their tool preferences at work. The announce they use vim at every opportunity.

"Ackshully you can do that with a simple vim macro I have in my dotfiles repo!"

Just because you can do it in a terminal doesn't mean it's effective. GUIs are faster for video editing, music production, artistry.

This is very true and the exact same thin I noticed in multiple companies.
People who actually get shit done just do the work with whatever tools they want and don't care about the rest. Different people may have different preferences, yes, but nobody, and I want to stress, NOBODY is going to give a shit as long as you get the job done.

Only LARPers (and worse of all """industry""" LARPers) insist that you have to use some specific IDE/whatever otherwise you're an idiot. They don't actually program (let alone do anything), they just virtue signal on the tools themselves without getting any real work done.
>>
>>83837646
