Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.
There are three ways to try Linux, you can:
1) Install a Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
2) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full Linux experience".
3) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)
If you are serious about switching to Linux and if you have Windows dual-booted (recommended for pure newbies), we recommend you use it exclusively for 2 weeks, and avoid Windows dual booting for that period of time, or it's likely you will start retreating back to windows instead of getting used to Linux as your new home and working onnmaking it feel the way you want it.
Before asking, please find the answers to your questions in resources.

I just installed xubuntu and I really like it.
Does anyone know any recommended software to install or replace the packed-in stuff? Transmission and Libre are good but I'm unfamiliar with the rest.
Is there a way to completely remove window decorations for a specific program on xfce or another de? I use keyboard shortcuts to make windows use a quarter or half of the screen and videos keep aspect ratio so the decorations waste space.
but still, advice please:
X-chat, Hexchat or Smuxi?
Clementine or gmusicbrowser?
Do I need PlayonLinux if Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm are the only Windows games I'll need access to?
Is Libretro all I need as far as game emus are concerned?
Those are just opinions, you should just check them out yourself since it'll only take a couple of minutes.

>playonlinux are install scripts, but I think you'll need wine anyway so no harm in using playonlinux
>Probably, I prefer to use separate emulators but it should work fine. Check out /vr/s wiki on emus.
do you use startx or a display manager
if startx add to .xinitrcif [ -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" ] && type dbus-launch >/dev/null; then
eval $(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)
Is Smuxi comparable at all? I'm mostly intrigued by the twitter feature it says it supports, but I don't know how customizable that is. Being able to see a txt feed of certain people's twitter posts sounds very appealing.
I just used to disks utility (gnome), clicked the partition and then the "cogs" menu to set it to automount at boot.
My fstab looks like
>/dev/disk/by-uuid/[uuide] /mnt/[name] auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
Well, it didn't. I don't have Thunar installed, will definitely try out its volume manager. Thanks guys.
Also, why does ganoo feel smoother than Windows? Everything is snappy, from video playback to web browsing...
How do I install the tewie font?
I tried yaourt tewi
then fc-cache and restarting my wm
it downloaded but it wouldn't change
any steps I am missing?
on arch linux with the i3 wm
Just started using loonix a few days ago, so complete beginner here.
>on arch linux with the i3 wm
>complete beginner here.
Lmao why you people do this is beyond me.
Go figure it out yourself mr smarty pants, it's you who wanted to be the edgiest kid in school.
Good luck with arch.
I've been trying to branch out to other distros besides the usual Mint/Ubuntu. So far, they all have one thing in common: they cannot recognize my monitor and thus run at 1152 x 864 or other 4:3 resolution. My monitor is 16:9 1920x1080.
What am I doing wrong to cause this? Both Debian and Trisquel had this issue. I've successfully install Slackware in a VM, but I imagine I'll have the same issue. I've tried a number of solutions online, but none have worked so far.
Thanks, I just realized I forgot about the config
I haven't changed anything in it since I was worried of breaking something
also thanks >>52298339
The reason I tried i3 is because I heard it was one of the most configurable window manager from loonix friends
I decided to use similar programs to them in the likely event I need help fixing a problem
Can't contact them at the moment.
>they cannot recognize my monitor and thus run at 1152 x 864 or other 4:3 resolution. My monitor is 16:9 1920x1080.
It doesn't properly recognise your GPU.
Are you using a discrete graphics card?
It's not the most configurable, but the most easy to configure since it uses plaintext with bash-like syntax
Here, have a few snippets from my old i3 config
>I'm using a Radeon HD 6970.
Then you should install proprietary drivers for it.
But beware, AMD is really fucking shit at making drivers for linux.
Anyways, with a proprietary GPU and with no skills at all you should be sticking to *buntu/mint, because installing proprietary drivers is just enabling some stuff in the options.
I can't guarantee it will work though.
I suppose not. Ubuntu and Mint both have Driver Manager, which automatically chooses open-source drivers for you. These have always worked great in the past.
Do I need to install them manually on other OSs? I guess that's kind of a dumb question.
Fair enough, though I have always used the open-source drivers on Ubuntu and Mint; they've worked perfectly there. Obviously, they can't hold a candle to their Windows drivers, but they work well enough for what I need them to do. Everything that may be GPU-intensive that I need to do, I need to use a Windows-only program, anyway.
From what I remember, it saw a display with a max resolution of either 1152 x 864 or 1024 x 768 and it was connected via "unknown". I can't remember the specifics, as this was already a couple months ago.
Which is the best WM?
I'm a DE baby and want to pig on my big boy pants and delve into the wonderful of wm. My biggest foe in this little endevour is finding easy, ELI5-like like instructions and documentation on WM.
Can anyone help?

I'm thinking about trying Gentoo
I already tried gentoo in virtualbox for a few moments, but that led to a kernel panic when I was done
I did some searching and heard from some possibly unreliable source that I forget the name of that virtualbox sometimes has some problems with gentoo
changing fonts shouldn't be this difficult.
Gentoo Linux. Using LXDE, if that's at all relevant.

No sound when I hook my laptop up to the TV. All other forms of output work; in pavucontrol I can choose speakers or headphones but not HDMI.
Fairly confident this isn't a kernel issue, but all the googling I'm doing has failed me thus far.
alsamixer has no explicit HDMI bar, but it does have S/PDIF with no volume bar. I think it's an issue with ALSA; generally if ALSA works Pulseaudio works on top.
I recommend trying it if you know what you're doing.
I went into it with no real knowledge of how to use linux and with the help of three guides fumbled my way to a working install in 15 days.
But first, let me check 'em.
I was joking about things not working. Everything works great, it just lost it's excitment. Whenver I install a new somewhat obscure OS I get a little rush of dopamine.
I need something else to move on to. Is Gentoo hard to install?
No errors when inputting that command, but I have the same font as default
I compared it by checking a screenshot I took before I even thought about changing fonts. (Screenshot was made a few hours into installation.)
If you know what you're doing and can focus entirely on it, 20-30 hours.
If you've got a life, a few days.
If you don't know what you're doing, in my experience two weeks.
Takes a while but if you know what you're doing it's just difficult as opposed to the meme levels of impossibility people claim.
I was checking the dubs of the guy I replied to.
But while we're on the topic, check these.
The video works fine, it's just audio.
Yeah, it worked with audio and video when I used to use Fedora.
Thanks for helping anyways m80
Will see about switching to gentoo in the future, was having second doubts about arch anyway.
It really helps knowing that gentoo install isn't just a meme, it's probably less difficult then I remember, since the kernel panic I experienced was possibly a virtualbox error.
Whatever is default
How sane is openSUSE compared to like the buntus or debian?
Its certainly a step below fedora, arch, gentoo and the lot right?
Just looking for an install and forget distro, curently keen on Ubuntu MATE but not a fan of apt
Find pleasure in other things then.
Try to see how long you can maintain a system without installing something new.
The biggest advantage to rolling release for me was no major upgrades.
On Ubuntu, updating between releases was a pain and it broke almost every time.
It was often faster to just do a fresh install. I kept install scripts around so reinstalling was quicker. On arch it still breaks from time to time but it is usually easy to fix and it doesn't happen all at once.
If this doesn't work, buy a odroid or rpi and use that to set up different things.
This way you can feed your addiction while having a functional computer.
And maintaining a server is a different kind of fun. You have to keep up with security news, configure a lot of things and keep it stable.
Terminal font is set with an ~/.Xresources file.
If you don't have one, you'll need to create it. Then add this.xterm*faceName: tewi
Also, read this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/.Xresources#Xterm_resources
Title bar font for i3 is set in ~/.i3/config
with this line:font tewi 10
Try these. If they don't work, let me know.
I have never really found the love for opensuse. The one click install is a bit weird, they implemented a great KDE, but if you want to run mate then that is not a selling point.
as for apt-get, there are alternatives. Aptitude is a lot better.
Ubuntu LTS is hard to beat
Funny you mention that since I'm on 15.10, I've always found that LTS while usually nice is a bit too outdated for my needs.
I mean sure I could update the kernel myself but I usually cba. I'll try out aptitude.
How can I enable more comprehensive edge tiling in Ubuntu MATE?
Currently using Marco as WM and compton for compositing.
I can tile a windows to either side of the screen to take up half the screen, but I can't seem to able to get it to tile windows to a quarter of the screen by dragging a windows to a corner of the screen.
So I am installing linux mint cinnamon 17.3 (I think) right now and planning to dual boot. I am browsing 4chan with mint currently, and I was wondering, what are the advantages to this over windows? I like the aesthetics just as much, though I prefer dark colors and not the silver default. The only notable difference for me is the interface and the boot up time being significantly faster.
Hard to summarize in a single post.
It is easier to automate.
Most things can be done from the command line which means it can be written in a file and run as a script. These scripts can be bound to hotkeys, menu entries or run with an interval.
Software management is a lot easier.
You install everything from a secure, trusted location. This means there is no difference to installing different things, no boxes you have to untick, just use the computer.
But if you only use a browser, why would you use non free software?
I'd really prefer to not bother with compiz, it crashes my session and doesn't run properly on Ubuntu MATE
Would openbox be a better bet?
Also since I started using compton I'm getting drop shadows where there shouldn't be any. Specifically around drop down menus.
I wan't to go back to linux but crunchbag which was my main is kill, what is a good replacement for it /flt/?

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU GET OFF MY BOARD
I am currently using linux mint cinnamon 17.3. Whenever I click restart from log-in screen I get a black screen with cursor and the computer never restarts, so I have to hold down the power button to get out of it. Anyone know the solution?
Who /p6/ here?
I've got a Toughbook CF-28 with an 800 MHz PIII-M and 512 MB of PC133 plus dock I was thinking of rigging up in the shed for shitposting, ebay/wiki surfing, and running X applications on a remote Solaris host (mostly spreadsheets and databases in StarOffice)
Does /flt/ think it would be up to the job with Debian or something similar?
Charging it right now to see if they are, picked it up for $5 at a recycler because I have a fetish for niche portables.
That's kind of a cool idea, I almost want to try it though I think I'd rather have the flexibility and better multitasking capabilities of a traditional desktop environment. Is there even anything out for x86 android that would allow forwarding X applications over ssh?

windows came pre-installed
it was just recently that i got into linux, so i wanna install it onto my laptop, problem is theres only the option that completely wipes the drive and replaces it with mint.
any suggestions? clarification needed?
So it sounds like you are have a laptop, with Windows. You do not want to loose windows, you want to install Mint to dual boot.
Your frustration is that you are not seeing an option to dualboot in the mint installer?
I am pertty sure there is an option to dual boot, lat time I installed mint there was. You may just need to make some choices in the installer before you get it.
It's pretty fuckin' dope. Very customizeable, very convenient.
Try it for yourself (and look at themes in oh-my-zsh), don't let any random faggot stop you with his nonsense and FUD.
any idea what these coices would be? like what is a partition, etc?
any links i could go to for this? tried to sticky stuff already and it was really helpful but there was nothing on partitions
Just delete or shrink one of your partitions to make space for Linux.
Make sure to pick bottom option during installation (I think it was "something else")
Remember that you can have only 4 primary partitions, if you create 4 before using up all HDD space, remaining space will show up as unusable.
Mount the NTFS partitions you want to access from Mint with for example /windows/ (don't format them).
Create / partition, swap partition and I guess /home/ too.
I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring 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.
Well, to try to explain most basically, a partition is a part of your disk that is treated sort of like a seperate disk unto itself.
Here are some resources taht may help clarify what is going on.
Is probably right. Windows has a disk managment utility. You can shrink your Windows drive, and then the Mint installer can take and cut up the space you have freed as it likes.
Why should I use a tiling WM?
Mostly used to stacking WMs/DEs. Using Openbox right now and (mostly) loving it.
I used Awesome on my laptop (res: 1280x800) a couple of years ago, but 1) I was still essentially a Linux scrub and 2) it was only for like a day or less before I switched out of it. Now on a desktop with resolution 1600x900.
i3 has a lot of hype, but I'm wondering if I should really go through with it.
I just feel like I'm not the person who tiling WMs are marketed for, tbqh. Openbox fits my needs because it's simple as fuck, and I neither want nor need much out of a window manager.
The "demos" of i3 that I've seen haven't really changed my mind, but maybe the testimonials of /flt/ might. I dunno.
It's literally an optical illusion.
Using a widescreen resolution will make square things seem taller than they are wide. I guess it's because your brain also thinks that a 16:9 monitor is squarer than it actually is, so it overcompensates with everything that's actually in it. Since we normally don't care about the exact resolutions of windows/pictures, it usually doesn't matter, but you get weird moments like this with square pictures.
you should start with bspwm or dwm, easily configurable and bspwm has very easy keyboard shortcut creation which lets you do things like ctrl+alt+f to open firefox etc,the basis of tiling wm's is saving screen real estate and exploiting the width of wide monitors to have everything at your immediate visual access. If you prefer openbox stick to it tho
I will not hurt you to try. You can download i3, or whatever, give it a little configuration, and commit to using it for a week or so. If you like it, stay, otherwise, fine.
I tried i3 and became enamoured with window managers, so I have not really ever looked back since my first few days (my first day was a different story). But they are not for everybody.
Stupid question warning. But I'm running a Thinkpad X201 (Arch), and after updating to the 4.3 kernel, audio stopped working entirely (not playing, even though alsamixer reports 100% volume and no muting). I know I'm gonna have to post some terminal output here for diagnosis, but I don't know what to post for that. Any tips?
alright so i havent booted up mint again yet because im trying to re-size my (partitions)? windows is taking up almost the full terabyte, which it obviously does not need.
do i need to download a partition editior to resize?
i'm messing around on the disk manager but there doesnt seem to be any options for actually re-sizing.
I'd recommend you follow this: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/resize-a-partition-for-free-in-windows-vista/
Later on you'll be using gparted to do this, but not now.
i dont know about other wm but im using awesome wm and enjoy it because of its nice integrated mouse support, if you want to resize a window you just mod+r-click it and it will dynamically size everything around the shape of the window. Do other WMs offer this functionality? the config is in lua which (to me at least) was a strange language to get to grips with at first
I'm a beginner. I've played a little with xubuntu before but now I'm actually going to run something through a vm on my main pc. I'm thinking of trying out debian.
Also, how much would I be able to fuck up my main windows os running pc through a vm? just so I know how careful I should be
Well cause I've only used a little bit of xubuntu. I mean I could go back to it but I was hoping to try something newish that isn't too complicated yet. Debian seemed like a good choice, but maybe not idk. Are they really that similar?
Debian is a bit more stable/secure but by default has packages that are, literally, decades old. You read that correctly, decades old.
So if you are going to use Debian, use debian testing.
If something can escape the VM sandbox, it must be a real fucking strong piece of software. Not many people or institutions have the kind of exploits capable of that.
Thus, "the NSA-grade".
The odds that you will get cryptolocker on the VM are astronomically small. Don't go clicking suspicious links.
I do not know specifically about cryptolocker, but does it work for GNU/Linux systems?
I think what anon means is that, if you are being attacked by a dedicated and skilled adversary, they proabably can get through you VM and attack your main system if they want.
Odds are you are not in this position.
No, but they have a lot of resources, and if they are attacking you, they likely are attacking you specifically, not just anyone.
A typical malware distributor is probably looking to infect many computers and trick people into paying money. Or just going for the lulz. In either case, they probably do not care if one computer is resistant, they are looking for the vulnerable targets.
No, not all of them are. But it doesn't take a genius to force companies under your jurisdiction to insert backdoors into their software.
Guess what? That's what the NSA have been doing this whole time.

Hey friendly linux users! I work in IT and i've always used Windows: good thing is that my company does not force me to install Microsoft product, so.. I decided to go balls deep and installed Xubuntu on a small laptop. I'm connected to a remote desktop/ssh/telnet session for 90% of the time... Other software i use is mail client (exchange compatible). Is Xubuntu a good choice to start with?
How 2 netflix?
Even this shit only shows up if I change the user agent, otherwise it's redirects to a netflix help site. Using Chromium.

>lost my irssi config
I'm so fucking mad guys, I used it for so long I don't even remember how to do things in irssi without it, I don't remember how to write a config. I'm going to fucking hang myself now.
So I'm the anon that installed linux on a virtual machine on PC but failed on his x220. It kept the USB media as the boot and my sda1 partition flagged as a non-boot partition.
These steps worked on the VM machine for windows and I even got a basic desktop enviroment up and running with xorg + openbox + xdfe? I think and some service command systemctl enable lxdm.service I think.
Mostly I'm posting this just so people can laugh at what a retard I am. Though telling me what I did wrong would be cool too.
Is that literally the only problem? Just change like the last few lines to grub stuff?
pacman -S grub
man grub //read whatever for the update command
Is there a config file I need to alter to make sda1 the root? Will my partition scheme work?
Also, coming from mint I would like to customize unity to be more mint like wrt toolbars and stuff. Can anyone recommend a good way to customize unity? The config stuff seems really barebones
What is the best vm program for running Linux on win7? I have Oracle vmbox, but I don't know if there is a better choice out there.
I worded it badly, what I want is to change a lot of keys, such as adding a lot of programming specific keys on the home row by holding down alt gr. "Changing keyboard behaviour" sounds a little bombastic in retrospect...
>ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Seattle /etc/localtime //I think this is wrong and I should pick Vancouver or Los Angeles or something.
This is wrong, there is no Seattle in /usr/share/zoneinfo/America.
Try to ls -l /usr/share/zoneinfo/America to see the cities.
P.S.: You can do the command post-installation, you won't have to reinstall just for it.
Hey, I just installed ubuntu, and then the lubuntu DE. In ubuntu I can add a norwegian colemak keyboard layout, but in the lubuntu DE this is missing and I can only get english colemak. Anyone know where I can get the missing keyboard layouts?
Its just a keyboard layout, I wanted to learn touch, and I googled which layout was least likely to give me CTS while I was at it. Anyways the issue is that lubuntu is missing several layouts present in ubuntu, and I want to acquire the missing layouts in the lubuntu DE.
I think so, I used the official arch ISO. The problem I was having was rather retarded (Iactually did forget to flag sda1 as boot) WHOOPSIE
anyway it works for the most part.
The problem I'm having right now is im getting
error getting authority: error initializing authority: error calling StartServiceByName for org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: timout was reached ect.
This is for trying to do sustemctl enable lxdm.service
I have xorg, lxde, lxdm installed.
you can fix the boot thing by booting into another OS/live CD and using parted or Gparted to stick a boot flag on sda1 then chrooting into the arch filesystem after mounting the proper filesystems (boot, root etc) then running genfstab > /etc/fstab again
do you get anything when running $dmesg | grep freedesktop ?
i presume you are running this command as root, or if sudo you have added yourself to the sudoers list right?
That's sad really. I have a lot of problems with it.

use curl or provide wget binaries if you want macfags to be able to use it.
If you want them, I made Mac OS wget binaries at some point last year. I can share them. Just let me know.
I installed Fedora 23 on my second pc after making sure the wifi dongle I was using (Fritz!WLAN N v2, 057c:8501) was supposedly supported in the kernel
Everything seems to work fine, and after figuring out how to get it to stop mounting in cdrom mode, i even managed to see the available wifi networks.
However, once I tried to connect to mine, Fedora just straight up stopped working.
The screen freezes, my mouse and keyboard dont react, any key combination I try doesnt do anything. After rebooting everything is fine again until I try connecting again. This is 100% reproducable.
How the fuck do I fix my wifi?
>my favorite games ever
sounds like a kernel panic, perhaps.
Never used fedora, but I'd first suggest updating your kernel to the latest available (or latest 'stable') over ethernet. Also, get a fucking internal card next time.
Looking closely at differences between Arc and Paper, Arc uses different window bar sizes for different programs. On Tweak Tool, it's perfect. On Firefox, it's too small for me.
I like the default sizes of decorations for Gnome. Arc changes that and makes everything smaller.
Also, your right. I'm using a version of the theme from 5 months ago. Going to try out the one from github.
I've installed Arch a while a go and things work pretty damn well, but there is one thing that's bothering me.
Some characters like the face of this thing "¯\_(ツ)_/¯" and pretty much all Chinese and Japanese symbols appear as squares in all browsers, but I'm currently using Chromium. Do I have to install a special font or something to get them to work?
After months struggling with emojis, I finally got a decent one.
Thanks to the anon who suggested noto-fonts-emoji.
It should be added to the wiki.
Sadly they do not. I've tried using GTK2 themes with GTK3 apps, they don't work unless the app provides a theme for both GTK2 and GTK3. IIRC, GTK3 uses CSS or something. Been a while.
Here's something cool for you. I modified the GTK2 'light themes' (Ambiance and Radiance) from Ubuntu 10.04 to include 12.04's GTK3 theme as well (which looks similar enough that I can deal with it). They changed a couple things in the 12.04 version, like close/open buttons, so I reverted things for consistency with 10.04 where possible.
P.S. accidentally uploaded a window screenshot instead of the full screen.
I now understand a basic understanding of client side decorations, but why does Arc decide to follow them while Adwaita and Paper seem to ignore them completely?
I don't use MATE because HIDPI support is not there. I kinda need it.
So I installed Linux mint and it was successful for the most part, except the grub bootloader was not installed so I couldn't access the installed linux, I deleted blank label partitions on windows so hopefully it is gone. If I were to reinstall how do I make sure the grub bootloader is installed. I don't want to dual boot Linux I just wanted to experiment with it so I will just run it in a vm for the future, how do I install it with a vm
Use VirtualBox and google a guide for Mint or Ubuntu.
In case you do want to dual boot, I used the following guide (since I have UEFI) and it worked flawlessly
>I'm confused. Why does it make a difference. I'm using Fedora 23. Shouldn't 2 different gtk3 programs have the same window decorations?
Some programs like nautilus,tweak tool and lollypop use new window decorations which are called client side decorations.they are bigger and have a different menu.they are not popular thiugh.
Is it actually better than MATE?
I use MATE because:
a) I started with GNOME 2
b) doesn't require accelerated graphics
c) it has some nice themes.
Alright, I did say "if I remember correctly".
GNOME 3 is a complete and total piece of shit that I refuse to use, so I wasn't sure.
