Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Do not dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.

>mini system in UEFI mode

>While the minimal iso image is handy, it isn't useful for installing on UEFI-based systems that you want to run in UEFI mode. The mini iso lacks the proper files for booting the computer in UEFI mode. Thus, the computer will boot in BIOS compatibility mode, and the installation will be in BIOS mode.

My laptop is UEFI. Will Ubuntu mini iso work on my laptop either way?

If you need to ask if it's the "right distro for you" install a debian spin as otherwise arch is just going to be a massive learning experience without any actual computer use.

>> No.71898550

Boot xubuntu/kubuntu/your fav live deb distro if you must have deb and install "arch-install-scripts" into the live environment to get "arch-chroot". Then you have arch-chroot in a live linux environment and can build a minimal root far better than any script with debootstrap. Just remember to rund dpkg-reconfigure on the locales and tzdata packages.

>> No.71898584

It's fine. I like their "Stay as close to upstream as possible" philosophy, especially compared to something like Debian, and used it for a while myself.
Manual install process is kind of silly in this day and age and the community is incredibly trash regardless of whether you come across the "rtfm" elitists or the underage "upvote my customized-to-uselessness i3 screenshots on reddit dudes!!!" shitters

Also listen to this guy. If you can get past the install process (Which isn't even difficult, just tedious and requires a fair bit of reading unless you've done it before), then you're just going to piss people off and the aforementioned rtfm elitists are going to rightfully shit on you when you ask for help with things that are spelled out in the documentation.
Once the install is done though, pretty much everything complaining about it breaking is FUD and memes from people who never actually used the distro.

>> No.71898758

Good choice, I would recommend using the xfce live cd and run the installer instead of the live environment. If it's the same as it use to be it's a sneaky little gem of the linux community as is essentially "debian installer but fast because it doesn't let you install debian server". If you don't like XFCE, launch tasksel first run.

>> No.71898783

Linux can be installed to 16gb flash drives without much worry, arch linux in particular can install to 8gb if you don't want a full fat experience. It's not easy to fuck up but it's not easy to implement under Arch, so the steps involved (wiping disks) can be done to your win install by mistake very easily. Install a modern Debian distro via it's installer script if this is your first Linux distro, take a look at how it does certain things like system management with systemd then try your hand at Arch. It's install is tedious but not hard, but after that you are left in the wide ocean of Linux without a gui and with a lot that can go wrong due to lack of knowledge.

>> No.71898895

You'll have to read the Arch install guide/wiki and type out a bunch of tedious commands. Instead, you can install Manjaro with the desktop of your choice. Or choose a stable distro based on Ubuntu LTS or Debian stable.

Debian has become the defacto target framework for most software development, it's package list is extreme and that's not including the hackery you can perform to get it's descendants software to run in house. And unlike it's descendants who's projects basically *have* to use a single DE for common development reasons its installer lets you pick some common ones but ultimately its built to run any way you want. It's community is onions as all hell so if you want you may wish to visit Ubuntu forums for support but for the most part it's the most foolproof linux I have used. Hence still using it.

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.

>recently upgrade from Stretch to Buster (Debian 9 -> 10, LXDE desktop)
I thought I had a pure LXDE desktop, but FIrefox opens PCManFM-Qt for default... Qt? It seems that I have a mess between LXDE and LXQt from upgrading.
>I don't have lxqt metapackage installed, but some lxqt package appears installed (configuration, notification, policykit, etc.)
>lxde and lxde-core are installed
I don't have the option to a "fresh" install.
So, what do you recommend? Should I try to "clean", and leave a LXDE desktop, as if it were a new installation? How?
Or should I switch to LXQt? How?

>> No.71899534

LXDE is migrating to LXQt.
LXDE was never meant to use gtk/qt the way it does - it was almost meant to be a self contained alternative but then both Qt and GTK did heavy lifting that no one else is willing to go through again like webframeworks and the like so they picked Qt in like 2015 or something and have just been targeting that under the LXQt name since.

Is this guy right?

>> No.71899689

This is highly opinionated and holds no technical merit in it's critique of perl, only stating that people who write in perl are idiots for writing in perl and therefore that perl is for idiots because idiots write in perl.

>it's not that perl programmers are idiots, it's that the language rewards idiotic behavior in a way that no other language or tool has ever done, and on top of it, it punishes conscientiousness and quality craftsmanship -- put simply: you can commit any dirty hack in a few minutes in perl, but you can't write an elegant, maintainabale program that becomes an asset to both you and your employer; you can make something work, but you can't really figure out its complete set of failure modes and conditions of failure.

>> No.71899816

So thats why he spends the whole rant talking about them being braindamaged.
Again, come to me with actual technical problems with perl and how that feeds into how people write perl. Don't say it "rewards idiotic behavior" and then say that because there's idiotic behavior is must be promoted in perl. Again he's not entirely wrong, he's just waffling over shitty co-workers mostly. For example: "Perl has shitty regrexes that are super science to understand and implement properly, this results in very very smart people doing stupid shit like perl regrex in a web application." summed up his entire waste of typing time with actual technical reasons.
Even though I fucking hate perl I kind want to get back into it now.

Is Arch only supposed to be used with ultra-minimal DEs and WMs? i.e. would GNOME or KDE get wrecked within days or weeks of being on rolling release?
Or is it just used that way because it's part of the appeal?

>> No.71905788

You can use APT tools such as apt-mark to flag a package as manually installed if it was originally installed as an automatic dependency for another package.
Usually you're installing DKMS modules as part of a package (e.g. broadcom-sta-dkms for Broadcom's proprietary Wi-Fi driver) which should depend on dkms, so be sure your driver is still correctly setup for future kernel updates (and marked itself as manually installed).

>> No.71905821

>i.e. would GNOME or KDE get wrecked within days or weeks of being on rolling release?
Not at all, unless upstream releases an utterly garbage and broken release.

It's commonly used that way because drooling morons think it's a "minimal" distribution and they want to jerk off over package counts without realizing that a single Arch package can and usually does correspond to at least 3 Debian/Fedora/etc packages.

Linux as a kernel is highly modular, google has axed a great deal of the modules many people consider defacto part of the linux project but technically are not.

For example many people consider the range of schedulers as part of the linux kernel, however google has it's own custom cut one that is aware of big.LITTLE gunk in arm chips and adjusts itself accordingly.

>> No.71907719

It's a security precaution, mainly. In a nutshell, processes belonging to one user can do pretty much anything to each other. This is why you can, say, run a program you're writing, and then attach a debugger and dump the program's memory, stop and start it, and otherwise twist its nipples in any direction you please. Both the debugger and the program are running as the same user, so the kernel doesn't impose any restrictions on how they can interfere with each other.

You can probably guess where this is going. Giving a daemon its own user account means that if someone compromises it, well, that's the only process running as that user. So if they want to do anything of substance beyond controlling that one daemon that they compromised, they have an extra hurdle to jump over.

I'm the autismo from last thread >>71896225 who is trying to learn shell scripting and to make it bend to my will.

Disclaimer: This is all just curiosity. I know it's reaching mental masturbation levels. I just wanna know.

I have made progress in my inquiry from yesterday, but there's still some remaining details that I seek your help for to fix.

Pic related is the output of this script:
printf 'GZDoom launcher script\n'
printf '\nPWADS/Maps <---- FOR LOOP | PR | COLUMN \n'
for map_path in "${pwad_dir}"/Maps/*; do
if [ -f "$map_path" ]; then
if [ "${map##*.}" = "wad" ]; then
printf '%s\n' "${map%.*}"
printf '%s\n' "${map}"
done | pr -ts" " --columns 9 | column -t

printf '\nPWADS/Maps <---- LS\n'
ls -I 'in compendium' "$pwad_dir/Maps/"

As you can see, the first group of columns is the result of a for loop in the shell that prints the name of any files it finds in the target directory, which pipes it into pr for formatting into columns, which pipes it into column -t to align said columns into a nice table.

The second group of columns is the same task accomplished by a simple ls.

There are a couple of differences though - in the FOR loop, I am able to control whether or not I want certain strings to be printed. For example, if a file's extension is .wad, I can tell it to not print that extension and just print the base filename. I can't do that in ls, and if I pipe ls into sed (which I know piping ls shouldn't be done), then I'll just get a single column format again. Another detail is that with ls, it will automatically detect the size of the terminal it's running on and display the appropriate number of columns. With my current For cycle, I have to manually give it the number of columns, which will fuck up if someone uses the script on a smaller terminal window. Continued -> (1/2)

>> No.71910879

Continued (2/2)

So right now I'm looking for a solution with awk. Maybe an awk program that does two passes on the single column that is output from the for cycle, once to determine its maximum column width and the other to actually draw the columns?

But I'm kind of stuck there. I don't really know how to write that. Or if it would be possible at all to match ls' functionality of adapting to the terminal window size. Failing that, I'd like to know how to manipulate ls further without breaking its fragile structure.

Been looking into the second answer featured here but I haven't been able to quite make it work. https://stackoverflow.com/questions/15687670/convert-a-text-file-into-columns

There's no /sqt/ up so I guess I'll ask you guys. Say a company has backups on an external server (something like box.com for example) and they want to download a backup, how do they make sure the backup will not be intercepted over the insecure internet? Do they use a VPN? Or does HTTPS fix this?

So? Minimal reason to not use it, if that's what you like better. It does look rather nice, and it works well. I don't see many complaints to be had.

Being based off other things isn't a bad thing. I like X, but I'd like to do things differently in a couple places so here is Y.

Ubuntu an improvement over Debian - assuming you don't hate their changes. Sometimes work done on Ubuntu gets pushed upstream to Debian too.

At some point, some people don't like some choices made in Ubuntu, thus all the variations, xbuntu, mint, kubuntu, etc. Little reason to exercise your freedom to choose what fits you best? Now that's a silly thing to say.

Steam seems to be working on some shader stuff that really boosts ATI performance for linux. In some cases games are beating their own windows benchmarks. And their work is still preliminary. This is definitely something to watch.

I'm betting at a point Steam is gonna push their own distro. I think Ubuntu's 32bit drama pushed that button.

Yeah, but you're using Linux Mint with an old kernel, so you're in the explicitly supported niche.
Getting that shit to work with with anything else, like recent kernels for example, involves lots of hope and prayers to the gods of X.org, kernel interfaces, and dkms.

Are there any good daemon torrent client? I've been looking around and most of them seem to support nothing more advanced than watching a folder for torrent files. I'd like to be able to automatically apply different rules to torrents based on things like trackers/flletype/etc. Specfically, I'm looking to sort finished torrents and apply different rules, like seed ratios, to torrents.

Yeah yeah sure. Is your car open sourced? Did your car manufacturer release the full plans so anyone can build the car? And of course your car has its own software Is that open source? Since that isn't the case, I guess you are the tool.

What about your can opener or a million other things you use? Do you have access to the full schematics and all technical data used to build all your tools? See I don't think so.

I have a 2 card setup and i do not have a xorg.cong or any *-.conf files in /etc/xorg.conf.d/*

>it's extra work for no benefit at all
Having to manage kernel parameters on every boot is much more of a hassle then installing nvidia-dlms and rebooting your system and having Xorg automatically run everything for you.

>complete lies
Set required module parameters
The module parameters of both amdgpu and radeon modules are cik_support= and si_support=.

They need to be set as kernel parameters or in a modprobe configuration file, and depend on the cards GCN version.

Set module parameters in kernel command line
Set one of the following kernel parameters:

Southern Islands (SI): radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1
Sea Islands (CIK): radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1

I mean, if you're retarded.
Even IF you needed the kernel parameters (which you don't) then you just edit /etc/default/grub once and it persists forever.

Your own source says it's only needed for old Southern/Sea Islands cards (HD 79xx, R9 2xx) because they also work with the old radeon driver.
I don't know why you're trying to lie about things that are so easily verifiable, in your own sources no less.

You're never in your life going to use 90% of the features (i.e. bloat) and the documentations sucks so much it's unreal.

>muh bloat
why "bloat" is bad? perhaps it's time to realize you don't live in the 80s anymore and that all your talk about the unix way is so inane today. Linux needs good centralization and standardization at the moment, not weak disparate systems controlled by insular greybeard admin cults with their cryptic init ways and paranoia.
final blow: systemd will make gnu/linux incompatible with all other so-called unix-like systems and make them shrink because gnu/linux is a much bigger community. And it is not systemd's fault.
see ZFS on BSD, they already have to switch to ZFS on Linux if they want to use it at all.

The only thing they're doing is shitting up the code base, which right now is a fucking nightmare because it also supports long-dead architectures and systems.

Educated guess. I'm a sysadmin and actually read the manpages, and sometimes can't believe the cruft I find.
E.g.: when's the last time you've seen grep -T used anywhere?
>Which ones?
Have you never seen the source? There's copious amounts of references to things like VAX, SunOS, etc. All of them dead as a doornail.
I get the appeal of portability, but does anyone test for hardware and operating systems that have been dead for decades? I wonder if the code even compiles, let alone runs.
>Useless to you.
With some experience it's pretty easy to tell which features are so obscure almost no one knows they even exist, much less use them in any capacity.
Another example: ls -l --author, which is profoundly useless because no Unix or Linux filesystem in use tracks this.
