  1. Thought it might be a good idea to have seperate threads thread devoted to articles about particular os's. In this way folk can have easy access to articles they may not normaly come across. Seeing as I use Arch that is what this thread is all about. http://keithcu.com/wordpress/?p=3270 Arch Linux on a HiDPI Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro (2013) IF YOU FIND A DECENT RELEVANT ARTICLE PLEASE DO POST

    Linux Fringe distros.

    Thought it might be a good idea to have a thread about odd ball distros. So here goes. We all know that for some strange reason penguin developers have a manga or anime itch so this first post is for them. Mangaka Is an Artful Blend of Simplicity and Style home site, https://animesoft.wordpress.com/linux/help/ More weird and wonder fulls coming soon.

    Window Maker

    GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/ThemesLatest news is WM has an entry in the Arch Wiki its own page no less. https://wiki.archlin...hp/Window_Maker This thread is slightly out of date but is full of useful stuff. Anyone wanting to try out Window Maker on Arch will find these packages useful. https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/windowmaker/ https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/windowmaker-extra/ https://www.archlinu.../any/menumaker/ https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/?O=450&SeB=nd&K=wm&SB=n&SO=a&PP=50&do_Sea
  4. auto-cpufreq Is A New CPU Speed And Power Optimizer For Linux Its developer says that auto-cpufreq was born because you can't automatically set the CPU governor - you can set it to performance or powersave, but you can't switch between these automatically, depending on the battery status, CPU load or temperature. It's worth noting that auto-cpufreq doesn't interfere with TLP, another tool to extend the battery life on laptops running Li
  5. Whenever I want to buy a new piece of kit I always look for benchmarking test results comparing several different manufacturers offerings. Once I have the kit I run a few tests on my own pc to see if they match the test results posted in articles. Sometimes you do not need to buy the latest and best kit to get a decent up grade. Sometimes buying a middle of the road piece of kit will save you a load of loot and you will still get almost the same performance as a high end high cost piece of kit. So here is a simple way to benchmark a ssd which will only take a few moments of your time. If
  6. Studying can be a real drag if you never take a break. So I found this little gem which should provide some relief from the drudgery. http://www.unixmen.com/audit-the-security-of-your-unixlinux-systems-using-lynis/ http://www.rootkit.nl/files/lynis-documentation.html https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/lynis/ Well I gave the program a run through on my home pc. Worked just fine and gave these warnings, and theses suggestions, There is tons of stuff in the suggestions list an I am not sure about how to do everything it suggests or even if I nee

  10. Full Throttle Remastered A super fun game, I would have paid full price for it but luckily I got it for next to nowt in a sale. Runs very well indeed on Arch. I do have to set up "Full Screen" in the options every time I fire it up otherwise it plays in a window. There may be a work around but I have not looked for one.
  11. The NVIDIA/AMD Linux GPU Gaming Benchmarks & Performance-Per-Dollar For July 2018 With graphic cards coming down in price I thought this might be of interest. I noticed a article doing a comparison of eight distros which I found very interesting whilst reading the graphics article. 9-Way Linux Desktop Distribution Benchmarks With The Intel Core i7 8086K There was also a comparison article with eight distros running as servers. The standout fact from both articles was the performance of Clear Linux which was way faster in many of the tests.
  12. TrackMania Nations Forever Available As A Snap Application I managed to install the snapd program on Arch but the game would not install. Had a missing file or folder or some such. I could not be bothered sorting the fault as the whole idea is that everything should be contained in the snap so no fiddling about is needed. Buntu based users may have better results.

    Build your own Laptop

    http://www.zdnet.com/article/diy-linux-laptop-build-your-own-for-240-with-fully-open-source-olimex-teres-i/ At the main site, https://www.olimex.com/Products/DIY-Laptop/ Now that is what I think is a great idea. You can configure the pc to suit yourself. You can replace every bit if they fail. You can upgrade parts of the pc to suit your changing needs. It will be interesting to see what different parts they will offer when they get underway and how much they will cost.

  15. So I am back up and running with Arch and I need a file manager as I am too lazy to do everything with the cli. I'd like something like SpaceFM where you could open up several panes and drag and drop content across them. Would like the ability to open up a root version for when I need to alter system .configs. Nice to have the ability to open up a terminal from the program. Needs to be light on system use and fast and reliable. Has to be pretty and look good with Window Maker. Any suggestions folks ?
  16. I always knew there was a reason for not using Mint. A sort of nagging in the dark recesses of the mind that it would end in tears. Seems I was right.

  18. Linux Mint is Still Number One First a little bit of history about me and Linux. When I First Started With Linux It was in the Early 90’s around 1991 or 1992 as I recall. I tried to play around with a Piece of software called Minnix, But I could never make it work a couple of years later a Linux OS called Suse a (Commercial) version, and a free Linux OS called Mandrake came out. I used the commercial Versions of Suse from Version 5.2 or 5.3 until version 10.1. During that Time I also Used Mandrake which later became Mandriva. About that time I started using Ubuntu wh
  19. Was reading the thread concerning weather recently posted and could not get my head around the "F" temps as I think in "C". So I used "wttr" recently posted about here to see what you were all banging on about. Seems most of you are pretty cold. So here is my weather in "C" and "F", Now all I need is to be able to get wttr to do "C" and "mph" and the sun would shine for me. Why not post your weather here with a picture of wttr or any other program you use ? It would be interesting to see what everyone uses to answer this most important daily question. (it is a life or dea

  21. Who would have thought it possible a few years ago ! Microsoft giving love to the penguin, is the end of the world in sight All hail the Green Linux! Never tried SUSE myself but have a couple of mates who swear by it and SUSE has been alive and kicking since 1992, which I believe is longer than Microsoft. The penguin march is slow but relentless.
  22. Raspberry Pi has released a version of linux that can be run on Windows PCs. It is based on Debian and called Pixel OS. http://thehackernews.com/2016/12/raspberry-pi-pixel-os.html So I know there are some bleeding edge people out there willing to test it live and offer some comments.
  23. Now that my new system is up and running and seems to be doing quite well, I still have my old system sitting on a shelf. Although it's officially retired, it still has usable life left in it so I was thinking of reformatting and trying new things. 1 - Does anybody have any experience with Zorin OS? A coworker said I might want to check it out since I have experience with the Ubuntu family. 2 - Any distros that are good with folder sharing with Windows? I previously used Xubuntu and I could access Windows shares from Linux but it didn't work so well trying to access shares in Linux fro
