can I edit what gets run when I enter a dmenu item? I'd like to run a script right before or right after I start up a specific software

>> No.74234864

Dmenu uses .desktop files.
I believe you can modify the .desktop file in itself to add some extra options or functionality.

You could also create a copy of the original .desktop file and name it something else like "firefox custom" which keeps the original menu entry.
Just renaming the .desktop file isn't enough, take a look at it's insides and you'll quickly figure it out.

There could be a prettier way to do this.

>> No.74234956

It’s worth doing if you want any potential users to be sure what ground they’re standing on. It doesn’t involve very much, just including a LICENSE file and a brief copyright statement at the top of each source file.

See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/License-free_software for license-free software.

>> No.74235051

I think dmenu uses /usr/bin/, but that aside my worry is that modifications done to .sh or .desktop files don't persist through a software upgrade. I went ahead and assigned a custom i3 keybind to a script && software instruction, it looks like this does the trick too

>> No.74235088

"dmenu will look for executables in the directories defined in your $PATH."

That was from Arch wiki.

You could create a folder just for your own custom executables and include it in your $PATH.

>> No.74235120

You shouldn't listen to morons and actually read the manpage.
dmenu is a dynamic menu for X, which reads a list of newline-separated
items from stdin. When the user selects an item and presses Return,
their choice is printed to stdout and dmenu terminates. Entering text
will narrow the items to those matching the tokens in the input.

dmenu_run is a script used by dwm(1) which lists programs in the user's
$PATH and runs the result in their $SHELL.

Consult the documentation of your WM as to what is piped into dmenu or if a wrapper is used.
Also, dmenu works like a command line and you can add arguments to whatever your run.

I’m using a ThinkPad T470 with a fresh arch install and I’m still configuring everything but it’s going pretty smoothly. My one issue is the screen brightness shortcut keys built into the keyboard don’t change the brightness at all. I’ve checked the backlight page on the wiki and tried what it suggested with no success. The most progress I’ve made so far is being able to change the brightness manually from the terminal using xbacklight -set #. Anyone have any recommendations?

How do I entirely reset my network configuration?
I'm having my first go at "remotely" managing a headless debian box
The process of stuff I did was as follows
Configure wifi through wpa_supplicant and editing my interfaces file, it connected just fine with DHCP and I was rocking a .103 address.
- Install network-manager
I went with network-manager because it's slightly more familiar
network manager was kind enough to let me know that wls33 was managed by /etc/network/interfaces, I cleared up the entiries in that file, rebooted my system and network manager connected me just fine. Following this I used nmtui to set my static IP to .11
This also worked perfectly fine

I now plugged out the monitor and peripherals and carried on through SSH
I wanted to test out pihole, I ran the automated script but it hung at one point, forcing me to reboot my machine. I ran the included uninstall script in hopes of cleaning up.

This is where I noticed a second ip on my interface (pic related) that wasn't previously there.
I have no idea in which configuration it actually lives, but I was still able to SSH through the .11 address & my router reported the .103 address as connected.

>> No.74236590

snap is a package format for universal distribution of programs across linux distros.
It is good because it should work on every linux system with snapd installed, it is bad because it builds a seperate pseudo sanboxed enviroment for the programs that does not respect the system settings (arguably this could also good but in practice it's not) so the packages are usually slow and look like shit because you should configure the look of snaps seperately, and use much more memory because they load seperate instances of dependencies.

ifconfig on Linux is dead and replaced by ip which unifies a lot of functionality from other commands as well (route, netstat, etc.). To my knowledge it has feature parity with the old tools and is a worthy replacement. In fact the traditional network scripts have been updated to use it. I was talking more about the various new networking daemons and managers like NetworkManager.
>netplan is just a sort of abstraction layer
Yes, that's also a problem. It's quite a lot of abstraction layers and good luck if one of them breaks.
Anyway, it goes something like this:
The absolute lowest level is the kernel which houses the network stack and operates the interfaces.
The level above that are tools which configure the kernel. These can be "ip" ran manually by the user, network scripts that use ip and other tools to configure the same thing on boot, or other network managers and daemons which use their own methods to configure the kernel.
The scripts are really just glue that interprets the config and passes it to other tools. so they use ip for standard ethernet interfaces with static configuration, call a dhcp client for dynamic configuration, wpa_supplicant for wifi, etc.
The level above that is variable. You can use netplan which is some kind of translator of a generic configuration to a tool-specific one. Or you can use configuration management software like Ansible or Salt. Or combine all of that together... From here on out it's frontends upon frontends upon frontends.

There doesn't seem to be an option otherwise, as any combination of Googling brings up SEO'd 'how to disable mouse acceleration' blogshit, and that's literally the exact opposite of what I want.

Booting back into Win10 and it just 'feels' right, straight out of the box. Higher refresh rate, pointer acceleration, fucking black magic, whatever, I've no fucking idea how it does it, but it's little things like this that bring me back to Windows every time I get the urge to boot into a liveUSB and see how the other half live.

So I can't trivially do it during installation? I need to install my new OS, enable FDE during that, and then follow the wiki's instructions both for enabling TRIM and making it work with the FDE?

>> No.74247199

idk, depends on your installation program. Point is don't worry about it, you can add the option to crypttab afterwards.

Maybe you have an Nvidia GPU in which case you need the proprietary driver (not going to work on a live cd).
Or maybe it's just that the default Ubuntu interface (GNOME) is really heavy and inefficient.
Try something like KDE Neon or Kubuntu and see if that's more responsive for you.

>> No.74247440

Probably asking too much here, but:

Is it possible through this QEMU/KVM thing or anything similar to use a windows virtual machine and play with shit there, without discernible latency issues, only one GPU, one keyboard and mouse, and monitor?

I'm trying to avoid going back to Windows on bare metal as much as possible, dual booting is a bit of a pain in the ass (even if it's fast) and there's stuff I want to run that just won't give me a chance through any compatibility layer.

>Nvidia GPU
You know, I actually do; a fucking ancient GTX 760. I hadn't thought of that.

Roll on the days when you can build liveCDs like you can Ninite apps; Ubuntu base, check, proprietary extensions, check, delete all the partridge-in-a-pear-tree preinstalled garbage, check, etc, spit out an ISO, done.

>only one GPU
no gonna need two for GPU passthrough

>> No.74247544

I have an iGPU (Intel graphics 46000HD). Would it be possible to use the dGPU to process whatever I would want to run, and use the iGPU to display it? All I want is not to get rid of the dGPU if I'm not using the virtual machine.

>> No.74247675

Yes, I have it setup with two GPUs, each with its own display output.
But first check if your CPU supports the relevant virtualization extensions (Intel VT-d or AMD-Vi). Intel CPUs of the k-type with unlocked multiplier infamously don't support VT-d, probably as a fuck-you to customers.
Check here:
Also check if your motherboard supports it. You can find chipset specifications on Wikipedia and see if it has an IOMMU. It should be enabled in BIOS/UEFI as well.

>> No.74247712

It's an i5 4460. Supports VT-d and VT-x. Board supports both as well. Maybe I should try this.

Whatever happened to Emerald? It looks better and is more customisable than every single window decorator, but I don't see it anywhere and it's a pain in the ass to install on Ubuntu. Why is that? It looks a little more modern than stuff like XFWM or Metacity which are still used today

Unironically Ubuntu. Great online support, simple commands, stability (LTS), widely used by people around the globe.
Install the Xubuntu or the Kubuntu flavours, though, the official GNOME desktop is pure nightmare fuel.

Problem: still can't update Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10

At some point during the update (either from USB or downloaded) I can hear four clicks, like switch, from the speaker (click-clack x2) and then screen goes dark.

Google gives no help.

Would there be any negative effect, regarding the use of older packages, from using Debian stable? I've tried distros that use newer packages, e.g. Fedora, which have been extremely unstable, and distros such as Ubuntu seem to have kind of a middle ground -- mostly stable but occasionally becoming buggy. I'm really tired of dealing with that kind of shit honestly and would like something that won't give me any difficulty in that area. I don't really use my computer for anything special other than web browsing and some media viewing/listening. I might occasionally run a VN or something in wine.

not really, the only thing you'll be missing is new features

I've had a different experience, with little to no difference in stuff like crashes and bugs with new software with old. The only thing Debian has going for it is bugfixes on old versions of software, if you don't require new versions of software it can be fine for a desktop.

But personally I find myself needing newer versions of stuff (like mpv for videos or wine) and then having to fuck around with backports or just saying fuck it and installing something with new packages.

With 18.04, I'm adding PPAs and repositories left and right, same with Debian stable. With 19.10 there's less of a need, since most applications are up to date (or good enough), same with Fedora 31.

It's like riding a unicycle on a dental floss tightrope over a wilderness of razor blades

your DE should manage that, unless you're a wm only pleb, then look at the arch wiki for help.

Compiz was only kept around for Unity, and emerald was abandoned. Not sure the reasoning why, they were good projects. But the compositors we have now are pretty good, maybe not in terms of eye candy but in functionality.

Well it does boot, otherwise the installer couldn't possibly work. How many things did you install manually?

>> No.74250235

Yes, 19.04 boots properly and works properly, it's the update process for 19.10 that sharts itself.

>> No.74250273

Sounds like some deep fuckery is going on. I really strongly recommend nuking the system after backing up home. But before you do that, how much did you install manually?

I press "Upgrade" here and then it starts downloading and installing files until you hear the click-clack coming from speaker, at which point screen goes black (doesn't actually turn off, it has back light on).

>> No.74250435

Yeah I can, but why? There's almost nothing installed, lol.

>> No.74250564

19.10 from USB did the same thing. I should probably do an official bug report somewhere.
