I won’t say it’s “best”, as I just want to run a game without friendlists and other bloat, so I really hate the fact Steam is nessesary for so many games.

But I would call it “essentiall”.

That’s just Bing down with all of it’s puppets rebrands.

Windows and MacOS are products. Linux is a technology and common human knowleadge.

smileyhead ,

System76 (a laptop maker “rebrander”) is making their own desktop. Can’t think why ASUS, Lenovo or Dell could not contribute to some desktop or maintain their version.

I still buy DVD and BluRay’s for some reason… Pirate only when I get lazy.

smileyhead OP ,

The last player (or server) still can choose a result, because it knows other tosses before making it’s own.

Better yet, an adaptive GTK4 app. Hit two birds with one strone.

smileyhead OP ,

No, because with remote desktop (GUI or terminal) I would clearly see if something other than my instructions is being done. I would see someone else typing or moving stuff around. With SSH malware on the client device can open second session/tty and do things there or simply write a command very fast and click enter before I can react.

smileyhead ,

You might want to try Ventoy and have it all on one USB.

smileyhead ,

Bad examples. Just running some program is not an argument. Even Windows can run most Linux programs in WSL, but does not mean it’s Linux.

smileyhead ,

No? Linux – all the benefits why we want Linux = Android.

Try and run Android on your PC for a week and tell me how it went.

smileyhead ,

It’s not x86 vs ARM problem. But rather vendor problem, how AMD/Intel upstream their Linux support while other do not.

How to sync Akregator across devices?

I’m a happy user of Inoreader. I like it so much I’m considering buying a premium plan. However, I’m looking for an alternative I wouldn’t have to pay for. I came across FreshRSS. The only thing that’s keeps me from moving is the sync. I don’t want to expose it to the internet but I want to be able to access it on a...

smileyhead ,

You can sync their data folders with Syncthing. This is a program that let’s you sync folders on two computers in the background.

But you don’t want to run Akregaotr on both of them at the same time to avoid conflicts, because it is not adopted to be synced. If want program that is made for sync you propably need to selfhost FreshRSS or similar.

I have Raspberry Pi 4B set up as TV box and for my own media like Kodi or Jellyfin, barely handles 4K but works. And I like how I can sync files or remote control seamlessly because it’s standard Linux not Android.

For mainstream streaming I really discourage form even trying, it’s a mess. If you plan to run any type of DRM media you already are on the lost position and might as well buy cheap Android TV stick for ~30$, because there would be no freedom gain with RPi, just big annoyence.

TLDR:
Linux for own media.
Android for renting.
Raspberry Pi for Linux.
Cheap TV stick/box for Android.

smileyhead ,

I wouldn’t want to run proprietary software even if it had negative price and the developer paid me.

smileyhead OP ,

image for every DE/wm

Coming from traditional distro (Arch to be specific) I just install it without DE or uninstall the existing one and install the other. Graphical environments are just programs just like any other.
So those images are just a convenience thing? Like Fedora has spins that preinstall desktops to have them out-of-the-box?
How those distro are displayed in (neo)fetch like programs, are they just Fedora or their own thing?

smileyhead OP ,

So what I understand uBlue is not to Fedora Atomic as Nobara is to Fedora?

Like, I can install Silverblue and get anything with rpm-ostree, but that is an overlay on the tree (like a git patch) instead of simple changing the files like on regular distro. Because of that swapping base of the tree to new or different version take computing time, so people are free to build custom base to their needs for convenience. And uBlue is a system to build those images easly. Do it get it right? 😅

smileyhead ,

Maybe ODM they get devices from to rebrand does not have AMD option for this model? ツ

smileyhead OP ,

You know a more fitting comminity to post it?

smileyhead OP ,

Those are just tutorials showing how to install something. Typing flatpak install firefox is one and the same as going into the app store, searching for Firefox and clicking “install”. Tutorial websites would just show terminal as it’s more universal.
If they ask you to actually download some file there is something very wrong.

I often see people overwhelmed by universality of some things. Instead of searching “How to install Firefox on Linux?” what should be learned is “How to install software on Linux?” and, unless met with something badly ported, never do the search again.

But what my meme is about is Windows-only style of having some file and by default having no idea if that’s going to run in some program or be a program.

smileyhead ,

Because when interacting with other people to do something together it is more convenient not having to encourage them to install something. Like preinstalled Magic Wormhole for file sharing or something for remote desktop. FTP client is a must. Chat is nice to have.

I use Arch btw.

smileyhead ,

You can. It just would not be good as preinstalled thing. Operating systems should not preinstall anything tethered to one server in my opinion.

smileyhead ,

Taking away being Electron based, the UI/UX of desktop app is really good.

smileyhead ,

Also Nheko is nice.

smileyhead ,

It’s like main game vs mobile adaptation of 2010’s era.

smileyhead ,

A modified kiosk versions. Many Chomebooks cannot boot normal/main Linux. Those are mostly drivers, so less modified than Android where big things are changed but still.

smileyhead ,

If he was saying that I cannot believe he wouldn’t already know.

smileyhead ,

Being able to practially develop anything without running Google’s proprietary build of Android SDK can be enough for devs to see the difference.

It might be very similar on the surface, for casual person installing app from appstore. But the whole ecosystem above the Linux kernel and below app interface is barely comparable. No Flatpak, Wayland, SystemD, glibc, PipeWire, etc.
The way apps are build, most of the times does not matter what kernel is at the bottom. What matters are toolings and the ecosystem.
Android could be build on Windows NT and most won’t notice (remember Windows Phone? Not looking at UI/UX design, it felt really similar), yet we wouldn’t call Android as being the same as Windows.

smileyhead ,

and really enjoy every privilege of Linux

Like ability to install different desktop enviroment?
I have a phone with PostmarketOS installed and, besides being immature for now, the difference in possibilities are night and day.
Almost all apps store settings in easy to backup .config folder. I can really script things using cron jobs and plain bash. Develop apps with any programming language without stupid SDK. Carry portable Minecraft of Factorio server for LAN parties. Use literally the exact same apps on both phone and desktop without ports and having their data synced. I can talk for hours.

smileyhead ,

I love it. The only thing keeping me from switching is two-way sync. Or at least make apps updates edited photos.

I keep photos of the current year on my phone and all photos on my computer. That’s because I want to edit them or use. Unfortunetly Immich currently is typical black hole, where I am expected to download file from cloud manually, then edit, then delete original, then patch creation date and then upload it again.

smileyhead ,

Syncthing is not a cloud storage or tool for sharing. It can be used like this on a stretch, but it’s a continuous two-way synchronization tool.

I portrait it like this: select a folder on one device, select a folder on second device, Syncthing would keep their content synced as if there were one folder :).
This is in contrast to Nextcloud that needs central location and user, to rsync that is oneshot and not two-way.

Don’t overthink this, it’s a kid. She/He would not be yet biased like you or your surroundings. About wife - I don’t she would be against teaching kid how a computer works, maybe you explained it so she heard “hey can our kid spend more time in front of a screen and with my geeky thing” :D.

I have a little smart sister (now 9 yo) that use Linux, it started with her making a mess on Windows login (parents laptop) so I asked if she wants “her own space”, but instead of new account I installed whole Fedora on second partition. Why Fedora? Because It works and looks nice, there really is no need for “educational”, just install education programs on top.
There are basic parental controls in vanilla Fedora, but honestly there turned out to not be needed, she don’t hook too much after first shock of tech and like two cries she learned to stop when we say to stop, at least most of the time. Depends on the child, I suppose some really need a timer, that’s up go you, nothing bad with that. I have showed her some games too, she loves everything Tux. I teach her how computer works this way, showing more and more programs with time and every new icon of Krita, GCompris, Goxel or Scratch is new great thing. She has Windows at school, but everything works on her space too. Well almost, LibreOffice does not has ‘online cliparts’, so instead of arguing with 9 year old I told that program at she uses at school is not available on this OS (after a while of teaching she knows OS is something something wow the desktop looks like :D) and showed how to download search copy from the browser. With being honest and just responding on every little childlish curiosity question she already knows more about computers than her mother. I just made it normal for her, as after using Linux for years it is normal for me.

I wouldn’t install it even if I would be paid.

How can i do whatever I want to do ?

I wanted to install jackett and sonarr, they are complicated to use as is, moreover I am using Ubuntu. I am following fuidleine for installing jackett with STUPID command line making it EXTRA difficult. But now I have to change directory ownerships and what nots. I am the ONLY user on this machine. I want to own everything by...

smileyhead , (edited )

Hey hey, calm down :).

Some software is OK to install manually and natively, like Wordpress or Nextcloud, they require some things to get together but those two are just standard PHP apps after all.
But Jackett and Sonarr are software made of much more moving parts. And actually are quite badly packaged (if packaged at all). Their creators see manual install as ment mostly for developers while end user is expected to use containers.

Like other have said, learn Docker and Docker Compose (or overall containers). You’ll be able to spin up such services with just one line (or with just simple declaration in compose.yaml file). But don’t copy-paste, learn it because it’s worth it.

If you really really get stuck, there also is Yunohost, a Debian based system with web GUI and one click install scripts for selfhosted stuff. But it won’t be as nearly flexible and portable (moving between servers, having multiple disks, configurable backups…) like Docker, there is a reason why shipping server-grade software looks like that so don’t be mad at Linux, because on other systems installing scalable, server-grade things would look the same :P.

Then why not just turn on I2P on regular torrents on regular clients like qBitTorrent?

PC is a computer based on IBM PC compatible standard, so usually x86 processor architecture with compatible with it components.

The term is so common that in practical language people started to use it as a replacement of the “desktop PC” or overall anything that is not pocketable or Apple.

But I guess with such question from OP it does not matter, as computers at the edge of the definition (like x86 Android tablets) are in a fraction of percent and won’t matter in “what’s the most popular”.

smileyhead ,

I spend a huge amount of time configuring and setting up stuff as it’s my biggest hobby. But I got good enough that when I set something up it can stay for months without any mainainence. Most I do for keeping it up is adding more storage if it turn out to be used more than planned.

smileyhead ,

Valve is great in terms of Linux support and it’s development, but to be honest I hate Steam launcher too. I do not use the store frontend, friendlist, notifications and other things on top, all I want is to download game binaries and updates.
