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 GNU/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 on
making it feel the way you want it.

>Recommended for beginners:
-*buntus except vanilla Ubuntu (Unity)
-Debian (For Broadcom devices, use an ISO that includes non-free firmware)
-openSUSE
-LinuxMint (a.k.a Ubuntu LTS + Cinnamon)

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.

Infinality has a preset for that. You'll also want microshit fonts for optimum effect.

Freetype and cairo also, yeah. Their patch is pretty useless though, freetype now renders like that out of the box. But anyway, the guy wanted to emulate Windows' rendering.

This is the contents.

I did a manjaro NET install and installed openbox as a standalone window manager without a full DE for muh desktop thread aesthetics. I'm using LXDM as my display manager and again, openbox as a standoalone WM. For some reason, and i feel as if I've missed something obvious, openbox does not acknowledge my autostart.sh file on startup which looks like this:

. $GLOBALAUTOSTART
nitrogen --restore &

it's located in ~/.config/openbox but is completey ignored on startup. I've been to a fewforus with answers that yeild no results. Any help is appreciated.
>>
>>51490928
Still same performance as just optirun itself. When I just ran with my 960m and disabled integrated graphics I could get 90+ fps on my current settings in Dota 2. Right now I'm getting around 40-50 under the same conditions.

Hi /lft/

I want to install Linux on a vm and use a VPN (PIA) for torrenting.

which distro should I use? am I missing something that would leak my traffic to an ISP? I use Unix at work but otherwise I'm a Linux noob.

and this is a stupid question, but can i set it up so that the downloads folder is accessible from my primary OS?
>>
>>51490981
If you want a minimal system then get rid of LXDM, you don't need a display manager, either set things up so you are automatically logged in and startx is automatically invoked or log in and startx manually. When you do this you can just autostart things in ~/.xinitrc.

Then create one. See the manual.
>i like standalone WM and this was recommended to me, this is the only problem I've had with it
There's no such thing as "standalone WM"'. You can run any WM you want without having useless apps included in a DE. And Openbox is one of the worst WMs in existence.

Is it a good idea to use ICC instead of GCC for bottleneck apps that aren't bash and the like (i.e., proven not compatible)? Will every second package break, or will most of them work fine? Is it possible to maintain a low-effort Gentoo system that uses ICC for the most heavyweight apps?

hi,
Ubuntu question,

I just discovered that Canonical doesn't come with the default version of Firefox. I'm about to disable the "Ubufox" extension that I didn't know existed.
I've tried several search engines, I can't find any information about Ubufox from sources independent from Canonical.
One thing it's probably responsible for is adding "&source=canonical" to all DuckDuckGo searches.

Is there any good reason to keep Ubufox ?

I can't say I disagree now, but I remember using and really enjoying the drop down terminal a while ago when I was starting to learn command line.
It made opening and closing the terminal while reading about commands very fast.

You're kidding me, right?

>>51493596
I'm not saying the drop down terminal is the best option. I'm not using it (or gnome shell, for that matter) myself, and probably never will again.
But I am saying that used it in the past and thought it was pretty good, so I don't see why someone else shouldn't try it out.
Just because you don't like in, doesn't mean someone else shouldn't use it.

Bought a vps running debian, how can I throttle the entire CPU so nothing runs above 90%? So I don't get suspended for overuse.
I've only found commands that can do it for individual tasks.

I'm doing intense stuff like running virtual machines within virtual machines, which takes cpu to 100%
>>
>>51493404
I was talking as a matter of convienence, you're more likely to use the terminal if you just gotta flick your pinky to open it

>>51493538
it's not so much an animation as it's an always on terminal that's hidden till you want to use it, which means you can open something from terminal then hide it again without closing the program you opened

Those don't exist for me either. But I have never had trouble keeping firefox up to date. My package manager gives updates to firefox too. I'm using arch, it may be different for ubuntu.
In fact it probably is different for ubuntu, otherwise they wouldn't have added the functionality in the extension.

>dont tell me it is done by hand , one symbol at a time
Anon... You greatly underestimate the oss community.
>>
>>51495127
Unstable because you get newer packages and it really isn't unstable at all. Stable is basically for servers and "i have to make sure absolutely nothing could ever go wrong" type of people.

>>51495127
Try a different flavor perhaps, something rpm based or Arch.

Testing is the safer version of unstable. Shit won't break as much as unstable. Unstable is really meant for people who like fucking with their shit all the time.

In the BIOS settings you can set the priority for which HDD, and in your case, which OS, to boot.

Just install os-prober and ntfs-3g, but I suppose the Ubuntu installer does it automatically.

>>51495866
It all depends on your system. In the usual case (BIOS/MBR), as long as you don't overwrite the boot sector of your windows partition (sdxY) and install the bootloader on the MBR of the HDD (sdx), you could be able to boot windows from the new bootloader.

To me it seems to be default, even your aplay -l does show only one card.
But you can do
ALSA_CARD=E5

to set it via an variable, or you can
pcm.!default {
type hw
card E5
}

ctl.!default {
type hw
card E5
}

to ~/.asoundrc

or you could just blacklist the hdmi driver
echo "blacklist snd_hda_codec_hdmi" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf


There is also an radeon.audio kernel config, setting it to zero might do the trick also.
radeon.audio=0

in your kernel boot line.

Hope that helps and you get it disabled or not used.

well anyway I uninstalled the "Ubufox" extension.
once I'm comfortable with Ubuntu I'll upgrade to an adult distro.

As a side note to my answer, I hope you remembered to reload alsa after changing configs?
alsa force-reload

So far void linux has been more annoying to install than funtoo which is impressive

I've got Arch on my main desktop programming machine currently, and loving it. However, I'm still a green beginner in Linux command and control.
My Thinkpad is sorta collecting dust at the moment, and I'd like to give Gentoo a shot on it. Mostly as a learning exercise. Anything I should take into consideration before I dive in? Will it be a worthwhile experience?

*UNITY

I posted a few days ago about Ubuntu being cringy. Anon told me what I didn't like was the Unity desktop/graphic environment. Now I found a simple way to switch from Unity to Gnome, from the Ubuntu login screen. Click Ubuntu logo, and choose between two versions of Gnome.

pros
Now Ubuntu looks less like a Playstation, more pro, nice start menu, clean task bar

cons
no all-purpose search field (but Alt+2 helps finding programs)
both gnome versions seem outdated (no Activities bar)
don't know how to customize the start menu
lost my internet ethernet connection (solved)
menus don't appear when hovering (use Alt)
can't take screenshots

downloading a Gnome package right now.

get gnome tweak, and also browse through the shell extensions available, pretty much any function can be added or removed with the right plugin
>>
>>51498658
thanks /flt/

Does someone have a guide or quick tutorial for using lemonbar with i3? I have no idea how to set it up.
>>
>>51498849
why lemonbar over just something like i3blocks?

I don't use Unity, I use XFCE, but I sometimes think that I might want Unity. I don't see how it's a bad DE by UI. I've used it a long time ago and I might have misleading memories but I think it looks fine and is pretty modern. The only bad side is that customizing is very much hidden and locked and key thrown out.
>>
>>51498873
lemonbar looks better to me

I wouldn't mind Unity from time to time (with privacy tweaks), complementing a start menu.
>>
>>51498923
You can get pretty much the same look either way
>>
>>51498890
>>51498928
don't they make a unity tweak tool of some sorts.

Do an LFS install, learn shit, format everything and install Arch again.
>>
>>51499453

Semi-linux noob here, put a Debian Wheezy/Jesse iso (I forget which) on a flash drive, booted it, and get this screen, no command does anything. Did I download the wrong architecture or something? Halp
>>
>>51499512
No need for luck with instructions from a stable LFS book's version!
But good luck anyways

I'm a fairly experienced Linux user, but there is just one thing holding me back - I use Adobe Audtition and Virtual Audio Cable to clean up my extremely noisy microphone during VOIP, which I use quite a lot.

Are there any other alternatives to that? It's literally the only thing holing me back in the Botnet.

Here's the screen that shows but without my failed commands.
Halp pls, someone tell me what to do and I'll be on my merry way
>>
>>51499565
>>51499525
The problem is (probably) in the way you put it on the flash drive, which program did you use?
>>
>>51499594
I downloaded the iso from debian's website and used rufus to make the flash drive bootable. So I fucked up?
>>
>>51499629
Try rewriting after selecting 'dd mode' option in rufus, should be fine then
>>
>>51499629
sounds good, do you have your bios/uefi set to boot from the flash drive? also how can you not figure this out yet managed to install freedos?
>>
>>51499629
I cannot confirm nor deny that you fucked up, never used Rufus.

For Gahnoo/Loonix isos to USb I use either YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) or Universal USB Installer. (google it)

just werks for me
>>
>>51499667
Yeah I'm booting from the flash drive that's what making this screen appear. I haven't installed freedos, this is just the screen that the flash drive is showing.
>>
>>51499713
Wait, I think rufus writes FreeDos image by default if you forget to select the iso, that's probs what you did there
>>
>>51499727
Then I guess I'll get back to the drawing board on how to use rufus correctly. Thanks y'all
