A thread for all Unix-Like Operating Systems, Macfags/OSX/Apple shit excluded.
All GNU/Linux, BSD, and other Unix users are welcome.
Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.
There are four ways to try Linux, you can:
1) Install a distro 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) Dual-boot Linux with Windows/Mac (recommended if you want to learn more about Linux)
4) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)
Before asking, please find the answers to your questions in resources.
Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread.
Understand that much of your software from Windows will be unavailable, although maybe wine can make up for it.

However it doesn't make a lot of sense because I'm guessing you're still not sure what are your preferences.
Having 3 desktop environments installed doesn't make your system slower. It's just updates that take more time, nothing beyond that.
Okay lads, I want to jump on the fun train with this.
After starting pic related from my local library and viewing the wiki, I have one question:
Should I use Arch, Mint, or something else for my first go? I will attempt to be using it on an old PC my brother used to own. I don't really have any preferences for what I want, but I'd prefer the most customization with the least difficulty for a noobie like me.
Most Customization: Arch or Gentoo
Most Easy: Mint or Ubuntu MATE.
This is an unpopular opinion, but for a noob, I'd recommend Fedora. Stable, easy to use, customizable enough, and able to go Bleeding Edge without straying into autism levels. Package manager is better and easier to use than APT, though Portage and Pacman (Gentoo and Arch respectively) are superior to both.
If you don't want to go Fedora or this thread memes you way from it, then for a noob who'd like to start getting into it, I'd recommend one of the *buntus, any except for vanilla Ubuntu, an amazon spyware package.
>Most Customization: Arch or Gentoo
>Most Easy: Mint or Ubuntu MATE.
This is a confirmed fucking meme since you can customize all distros in the same way.
Save for gentoo since you got their weird use flag systems.
But yes, fedora is aight.
Ubuntu: Incredibly popular, great userbase support, generally agreed to be the easiest of the mainstream distros (iirc Mint is just Ubuntu with Cinnamon)
Fedora: Sponsored by Red Hat, excellent support, straightforward package manager, somewhat bleeding edge but not autistic, only slightly more difficult than Ubuntu.
Personally I lean Fedora, but that's just me.
So its easier to customize a distro, that has 90% of programs you dont want, and deps you dont want.Then it is to customize a blank slate?
Please let us in to your autistic brain for one moment to see the light
I am using openbox and I want to change the fonts in menubars, firefox tabs ...
When I tried changing then via obconf without success.
Where do I change the default font? (screenfech still shows the default Cantarell 11)
Compare that to what?
debootstrap? You can use to bootstrap all debian based systems with _very_ minimal setups.
Perhaps the industry and community can solve the issue of using Linux in limited enviroments one day;realtime kernel is an unicorn, but the fact is there is a lot of effort on that front, doing minimal builds is on the table with most general distros.
So saying this and this install is this small, is pretty silly in 2016 , when all major distros have utilities to do installs on limited hardware.
The only epeen on FOSS should be your programming/admin skills.
What is the easiest distro to install that lets me jump right into programming.
A good package manager is a must.
>he doesn't compile his programs
God, why are you even using Ganoo plus Loonix?
Debian, it has an excellent tool chain system.
Only issue is lib age, so if you need something recent, you need to compile yourself and unless you know how to package you will be out of the support loop.
But say you need to compile <a program> from git, and it has a lot of dependencies, you can just pull the dependencies required to build the Debian version and get most of the cruft sorted.# apt-get build-dep <a program>
# checkinstall <a pgrogram>
Usually that just works, you get a debian package and compiled from the src.
Rewrite GNU utilities in Haskell too, and name it Linux, so we don't need to say it "GNU/Linux". I'm going to make a Linux license (which is GPL incompatible) and convince Linus to use it.
/g/ how to write a simple python script to check for new/unread email /no download, just check if new email == alert/ and place an icon /provided by the systems' icon theme/ in the notification area?
Something happen and 4chan font is different, pixelate and maybe smaller, last time fixed with:sudo pacman -R xorg-fonts-100dpi xorg-fonts-75dpi
But those fonts are already uninstalled.
I know where the wiki is, don't know what my problem is.
'what font' doesn't work on 4chan, I'm trying to figure it out where to start debugging.

Point being, I guess I download linux mint or ubuntu onto a flash drive and somehow start it up form the flashdrive onto his laptop?
All of this just happened about 2 hours ago, which is why i want to fix this problem fast.
Am I doing it right, should he use mint or ubuntu, I just want to make it as easy as possible for him to transition
I have used Slack, Ubuntu and Arch in the past as my primary OS.
I now use Windows just because it's convenient.
Have there been any new features added to Linux from the early 2010s which aren't present on Windows 9/10?
Also, have the issues with driver compatibility been sorted? I couldn't stand going from forum to forum to find guides to get Wireless cards or Graphics cards to work properly.
If I re-emerge the kernel sources again, will it wipe my config?
I'm trying to get SELinux to work and the only part of the install guide I didn't follow was re-emerging the sources (I already run hardened).
I figure I'll back up the config anyway but if anyone could tell me for future reference Id appreciate it. Near as I can tell the kernel source hasn't been updated since I installed it last.
Torrents don't magically appear out of nowhere. They come from people who rent movies on iTunes, remove the DRM and create torrents from the files.
So no way to do this on linux, or what?

For the just werks distros and presumably with a little tweaking the involved distros, yes.

Technically, no, but they do what they do better.
That and package managers, which are superior, safer ways of installing packages in an easier manner.

So I seem to be having an issue with ddclient, it works and updates my dynamic dns, but it seems to only run for a week or so, as sometime when my ip changes, my site doesn't update then I log into my server to find out that ddclient is no longer running anymore.
All I've done to run ddlcient is just run sudo ddlcient on the server then log off, this works and when I log back in it's still running, but some time later it obviously stops running, do I need to set it up as a cron job or something instead?
Does anyone know how to install kde connect on gnome in fedora ? I really want to try it out. It is free and has more features than pushbullet including mirroring your pc on your phone
There was an image floating around about levels of a gnu/linux user and their distro of choice.
I think noobs started with ubuntu, semi advanced used arch/gentoo and then advanced users went back to ubuntu or something on that lines
Anyone has that?
Good distro that doesn't come with any preinstalled DEs or WMs? I need something that isn't gonna be babby-mode as this is part-learning experience. Also I fell for the "arch is a meme" meme so I'm not installing that again.

Seeing as package managers are stuck to you when you choose a distro (or prove me wrong), I was wondering what the major differences were. I know about pacman but was wondering how it compared to the others.
Pacman is pretty good if you know what your doing. DNF is second best in that regard. Zypper has some advantages if you are new to linux in general. Avoid yum and apt like the plague.
The only one on that list >>52468711 that is actually clost to mathematica is Sage or sympy (sage uses sympy, but if you used the IPython notebook with sympy imported it's very similar.
I should elaborate.
sympy is simply a python package, it has many of the same capabilities as mathematica with some notable exceptions
but because it's a python package it is arguably far more powerful as you have seamless interaction in many of the other python packages such as numpy and scipy. And also many many non-scientific langauge tools. Just as an example the wiki page correctly points out that sympy doesn't have a control package, however, scipy.signals does and it's getting more powerful every year.
Sage has some of it's own advantages and especially good as a teaching tool because of it's interactive graphics. It also has a detailed manual and is fairly fast and easy to learn.
However, I would instead recommend you use sympy with the Ipython notebook simply because everything you write is 100% python code so you can just copy paste cells into another script you use is a larger program.
Also some cool things you can do with sage/sympy is using the latex function to convert your computerism equations/results into latex source code. Now remember you have full python capabilities at your disposal. You can imagine how easy it is to create dynamic documents with these tools.
I INSTALLED IBUSーANTHY ON ARCH TO WRITE MOONRUNES BUT NOW I CANT SWITCH BACK (METAーSPACE DOES NOTHING)
THE PROBLEM IS THAT I CAN ONLY WRITE IN ALL CAPS NOW (LOWERCASE ONLY GIVES ME HIRAGANA SO I CANT EDIT 。XINITRC、GEDIT SOMEHOW DOESNT WORK FROM FILE MANAGER) ALSO IVE FORGOT THE ROOT PASSWORD
God fucking dammit this is annoying.
I keep losing my internet connection for no reason or warning.
I'm on Arch and usewifi-menu -oto generate my profile, enabled it with netclt and it's working on boot.
The problem is it keeps losing connection without trying to reconnect. I can't ping 18.104.22.168 suggesting it's not connected to the router at all. If I then use
sudo netctl restart [my wifi-menu generated profile]
it works perfectly again (very fast, not issues) for anywhere between 0.5-15 minutes before losing connection again.
I found a bug thread about how wireless USB turns off to save power and the netctl doesn't refresh, it was fixed after a Kernal update. My hardware is pretty new so I'm hopeful it will be fixed eventually.
In the mean time can I write something like a small script to continuous check the connection and reestablish it?
Or did I miss something else during install that I should've done?
Running kde on arch and it suddenly stopped connecting to any wifi network. On boot I get some error about systemctl shadow.service.
I'm installing Arch in VirtualBox. Can't run gummiboot (went through the Wiki, found out why), then decided to go with Grub, but then, pic related
Any idea on how to proceed?
p.s. I'm doing the installation by going through the Wiki and watching this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joStuQmvHmE&index=3&list=PLLYqWP0u3LOqOIr5yCu1MvAwukfKu1e3D
Wait, is print even standard?
There's no man page, but 'which' claims it's a build in shell command just like echo, and not an alias or anything. But from what I can tell it's the same as echo.
Apparently print doesn't have any options.[user@arch:~]% echo -e 'Wew lad, \n Looks like you spared no expense!'
Looks like you spared no expense
[user@arch:~]% print -e 'Wew lad, \n Looks like you spared no expense!'
zsh: bad option: -e
Wait, I found it.
Apparently it's a part of zsh.
It's supposed to be some sort of alternative echo that's more powerful - being able to emulate echo and printf, alongside all its unique flags.

I need to setup my own mail service on VPS, so what's is the best and /g/approved mail server app?
My VPS is running Arch.
How to completely remove arch linux and anything arch related in order to install another OS? I have come to the conclusion it is not for me and I can't for the life of me figure out how to go about replacing it with something else.
This happens when I play Source games on Ubuntu with 8800GT.
Is there any way to fix this, except playing on Windows? I feel like I fucked something up with the drivers. Or is my card just unsupported on linux?
I gave linux another try, and for the first time ever, all my monitors were identified correctly and just werk without me having to hack my xorg.conf to pieces. The only drawback is that my graphics card doesn't have a displayport, so my 4k monitor can only run at 30hz.
My question is, are AMD cards good enough in Linux to give me the same experience as I got with this shitty Nvidia card I currently am using? Because I really don't want to have to buy Nvidia's cheapest displayport card that costs like $150 just because it has gaymurrrr branding all over it.
>are AMD cards good enough in Linux to give me the same experience as I got with this shitty Nvidia card I currently am using?
Quality of GPU drivers on linux go like
Proprietary nvidia >>>>>>>>>>>>> open source radeon > closed source radeon >>>> open source nvidia
Intel is out of the question since their drivers "just werk"
Ironically if you want any 3d performance in your set up at all without massive headaches a relatively recent nvidia gpu is the only way to go. I stress the "recent" part since both nvidia and amd like to discontinue drivers support for linux for no fucking reason

i thin the reason was that the open drivers worked better on those older cards, i'm not sure about that though.
What's this about?
Also, I'm having some issues on my Macbook Air 6,2 (late 2013 / early 2014). On GNOME Wayland, everything is really smooth, except the trackpad driver is pretty poor (libinput).
But then on X.Org I can't seem to get the input working at all, I want to use mtrack but I've not managed to get it working. Also is there a way to use mtrack with Wayland, that would be totally awesome!
ok i was not clear enough,
there is no .desktop icon, there is no .desktop entry, the icon in question /which the link leads to/ shows up in the notification tray when a new email is received
question is how to edit the code to use a mail icon from the os's icon theme

This card is a GT 640, has 2 DVI and a single HDMI.
The sad thing is I have a pile of active adapters to go from DP source to DVI monitor for my other PC, which has a boatload of DP ports but the monitors are all those 1440p Korean specials with dual-link DVI only.
At any rate, I don't really have any need for 3D acceleration, it just always usually takes several hours of fucking around after a fresh install to get shit working, that I was pretty pumped to see it finally working.
hi /g/, I want to know how I can close ports over shell on a linux based network device.
with "netstat -np | grep '127.0.0.1'" I can see which ports are open. With "fuser 22/tcp" I found out the PID number for killing etc but which command is to close the ports?
I even tried loading the profiles in /usr/share/color/icc/colord and both dispwin and xcalib say they're not fucking valid ICC profiles.
What the fuck? how in the fucking fuck do you load and ICC/ICM profile? are they just broken by design?
This is pissing me off, I don't understand how something can be this broken.
Whatever you say mate.
Btw, i'm a non-native speaker.
If i'm not easily pissed of, should i answer yes or no to "are you prone to bouts of anger?"?
It's not fancy, it's regular English and means something specific. Which part/word did you find hard to understand? Prone and bouts are not really fancy at all, although bouts is perhaps not used all that often.
What usb stick would you recommend to run linux from? I'm thinking of experimenting with qubes and some other distros, and have no large sticks around so I gotta buy one.
Also if I just got an external ssd via usb 3.0 would it be discernable from built in sata3 ssd?
yeah ok, thanks m8.
So I can just close the application with "kill -9 PID" thats the way I did it. But when teh device getting restarded the application starts again and the port is open again... thats not what I want. Can I handle this problem with iptables?
>kill -9 PID
I love you anon.
With iptables you can block a port for the outside world. But the port is still open. It's just not reachable from the outside world.
Maybe you must look why the port is open and stop the application from spawning.
You said you are a non-native speaker, that's not the same as low educated. Any native speaker, no matter what their education, will understand
>are you prone to bouts of anger
None of the words are fancy, you just didn't know them.
>unknown words appear fancy
It doesn't make them fancy just because you don't know them. Again, they are very common and easily understood words in English, I'm sorry if your pride is hurt because you didn't understand something any native speaker would but it doesn't make you stupid or the words fancy. Learn from it, they are used often, especially in the medical field.
I have a computer I use for seeding (manjaro i3). Is there a palemoon extension or other programme/browser that can refresh a page and then when it's loaded take a screenshot at a certain time?
hey weird tech question; it seems like dual booting from the same drive can make linux distros and windows effect each other's load times in weird ways, if I install a linux on a completely separate hard drive will that stop all the weird fragmentation and shit?
>it seems like dual booting from the same drive can make linux distros and windows effect each other's load times in weird ways
Sounds like your Linux is fucking around with the hardware clock.
well I noticed that after installing a linux distro the clock was off by a bit so I set it to internet time, after that I went back to windows and it was off by a few hours and the window froze when I tried to correct it from date & time, so maybe this theory has merit? how do I make the clocks stop fucking with each other?
So installed a dual boot of Arch last night to begin the transition. For some reason my DisplayPort monitor won't work, haven't installed anything after installing the OS so far, so just at the TTY.
Strangely it worked one time during the live USB while installing, but not the other time. And won't work at all now. Wanted to sort this out before I install i3 etc.
I want to bloat my Debian so that things like the post button right here and the scroll bar to the right doesn't look like horse shit. I'm tempted of just going back to Ubuntu, but I don't want that. I want to learn.

After endless frustration, I finally got to install Debian on the desktop after unplugging the Windows boot drive, using the integrated graphics instead of the cuck 970 card, manually adding an EFI partition, and temporarily disabling Asmedia. I'm a moron.
Which Nvidia drivers do I go with? I want to try native gaymes before even thinking about GPU passthroughs.
So how much manpower does it actually take to maintain pacman/AUR etc?
Do they need to change the source code of everything whenever there is a major kernal update etc.? Or is it basically just cloning the git repos of the developers?
How long will it last untill the jews take it away from us?
Oh yeah i've been reading about it.
But on what range of devices have they announced opensourcing the linux drivers?
Would be kind of nice to see my 8 year old laptop supported again, wouldn't it?
>using closed drivers for a 390
use the open drivers, pic related
I see, sweet, but how do they make money to keep up the sever costs etc. (and I'm assuming a few maintainers draw a salary)
Do they live on donations or a 4chan-tier marketing plan? If so who should I be donating to.
so you get a marginal performance decrease but the tradeoff is a driver that won't shit on your plate during an update.
AMD really needs to get their shit together, this is ridiculous
That actually helped! The buttons look much smoother and the scroll bar isn't always red. What about editing the scroll bar altogether? The terminal is still not in the best condition.
What's the best way to install Python packages on Arch (for 2.7 preferablly)?
I tried installing the anaconda distro, but I got a fuckton of erros (I think the download was faulty though). I'm finishing the installation now, but I will probably remove it because it seems unstable.
I moslty use it for scientific programming so I just want a numpy/sympy/scipy and a couple of sci-kits.
Ubuntu had bloat but at least it looked decent. Fuck.
forgive me but how do I actually install open drivers? I've only been using linux for afew days and anything I can't apt-get or google for some ppa or whatever I have a bunch of trouble installing. What's the easiest way to install them on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS?
not sure how far the open drivers are for you but here's a useful link https://wiki.debian.org/AtiHowTo
you are probably already using the open drivers if you don't know otherwise but the old ones are shit.
I know that familia, it's using the system theme showing that white background. I can just change the background and be on my way like pic related.
I'm just wondering why when practically everything is fine now. I'll just keep xfce's terminal.
my limited experience.
best experience until unity (dock-like appearance but extremely unintuitive). also anything based off this seemed to have much smoother font rendering than everything else
reminded me of windows XP in a bad way and minor differences to ubuntu were usually negative
>open suse KDE
reminded me of windows 7 in a bad way; too many options, the lack of harmony - polystylism
>Arch; Ubuntu minimal
made me realize inoffensive bloat can be preferred to the time required to get your perfect system built up from basics
thunar seems slightly worse than classic ubunto-gnome file manager. like mint i find the minor differences are usually a hindrance when googling problem resolutions.
Not sure what I'll install on my new ThinkPad. Desires: ubunto level font-rendering, better ipod support (music player), basic and friendly DE like XFCE/gnome2, LTS, less screen-tearing
is there any way to copy windows shortcut stuff to linux? this is only reason i cant switch to linux because i am really got used to windows shortcuts and moving to linux reduces my productivity. i tried copying most used ones but its shit, DE settings for shortcuts are different than system settings somehow one of them overwrites other.
>best experience until unity (dock-like appearance but extremely unintuitive). also anything based off this seemed to have much smoother font rendering than everything else
lol if you liked gnome2 experience on ubuntu just download ubuntu-mate.
same shit, since mate is a fork of gnome2 from after it was discontinued
I gotta say, using fedora + mate and it's bretty good
I'll have to try, not sure what I was on before because I was experimenting with different distros and versions of ubuntu. Right now I'm considering just forgetting about gaming on linux until vulkan comes out and just sticking with one to learn the OS and the differences between and my way around it proficiently first.
Anaconda didn't do anything, I'm not going to remove since it didn't break python and maybe I can pull packages from it or something.
In the mean time I figured out how to install individual packages for 2.7 if anyone's interested. It's simply python2 then a dash between packages instead of installing the package directly"sudo pacman -S python2-scipy
It feels rewarding just learning to set things up,compared to my first day where I spent like 2 hours trying to install dolphin and I'm now proficient enough to get any program or set of packages I want in under 5 minutes. Next I'm going to look more into tinkering and customizing and stuff and learning more terminal commands. The only thing I have had constant problems with since day 1 has been drivers (usually with the gpu or a peripheral like a wifi-stick or something)
Aww that looks pretty nice. Cant remember why i choose xfce over mate. i think people were fearmongering over its long term support or something.
is gnome3 as if gnome2 has gone more like kde or unity?
gnome3 is fucking fisherprice levels of dumbed down.
On debian at least, they removed the option to search in the current folder in nautilus when you start typing.
Instead, it searches EVERY FUCKING INDEXED FOLDER, which is bad enough until you realise the results are ordered by anything other than file name.
Overall it's not bad, but say goodbye to quite a few gnome built-in programs for lack of removed features.
GNOME removed more stuff of their DE, gnome-terminal as example lost settings and other programs too. I don't get their philosophy. If it's "keep it simple" then why bloating with effects? Also reminder that they also don't care to fix the fucking filepicker. Fuck GNOME, srsly. Sadly the alternatives are mostly even more worse.
I should have added to: >>52475556
>Date: Sat, 1 Feb 2014 16:21:02 UTC
Close to two fucking years this has been an issue.
When I upgraded to jessie, i switched from nautilus to nemo within the first hour.
The only reason it took me a whole hour is because I made the mistake of trying to find a way to re-enable the old functionality, which still exists as an option in ubuntu etc.
But no, not in debian.

How can I switch sound outputs automatically when I plug in my HDMI cable?
Currently the only way to get sound is to manually go into Pulse Audio Control and switch the profiles. Is there a way to do it automatically when the HDMI is plugged in?
I plugged the windows boot drive and it had to check shit. I think it eradicated the EFI partition on the Debian drive. Fucking goddammit this shouldn't be so much trouble. I give up dual booting on different drives.
What DE is literally best from an aesthetic rather than utilitarian viewpoint?
OSX obviously will have had the best funded and qualified graphic designers over any other environment, but we should bear in mind they had to produce something that would be commercially successful and work with the technical needs, they didn't get free rein. I don't think many /ic/ academics will lurk here but I'm curious what their opinion would be. We know the great majority of linux and windows setups would be put in le trash by them.
>OSX looks like shit though.
Maybe that's because of the commercial limitations I mentioned. But you have to admit even the common pleb would find OSX to look more tasteful than the majority of OS defaults. A qualified aesthetician wouldn't give them the time of day
>But you have to admit even the common pleb would find OSX to look more tasteful than the majority of OS defaults
I know that they do, I don't know why they would though. Like I literally cannot comprehend why people think it looks good, not just good but 'amazing'.
>GNOME removed more stuff of their DE
even a better example is the fact that the display refresh rate settings is missing from the display settings menu despite the fact that gnome2 had it and it worked
Really? Just for comparison, this is the first image on gnome's official page.
And this is the first OSX pic from apple's official page.
yeah, gnome3 got the aesthetic and workflow part okay.
they fucked up everything else unfortunately
I like Plasma 5, but I think the point is that most Linux DEs are highly customisable and generally have a lot of capabilities. Your eye candy depends more on your own creativity than
It has already been sauced, but thanks.
I've learnt a lot today thanks to that site.
I'm more normal than i though and some people that i considered normal scored very high with an occasional high.
