/fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread
Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.
Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.
Before asking for help, please check our list of resources and FAQ or take a moment to do a web search.

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

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux, you can do one of the following:
>install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a virtual machine
>boot into a GNU/Linux distribution from a live image without installing anything
>dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS
If you'd like to _use_ GNU/Linux, go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

$ man <command>
$ info <command>
$ <command> -h/--help
$ help <builtin>
Don't know what to look for?
$ apropos <something>
Check the Wikis (most stuff applies to all distros):

>be humble free time amateur app developer
>make a simple game app with some small in app purchases
>release on google play almost immediately

I used a cross platform framework (flutter) so I decide to put it on ios as well for my apple using friends to try out
>try to set a business name so the whole world doesn't need to see my real name
>need to pay several hundred dollars to register a company name with my government to do this, Google Play just let me set one

>try to enable in app purchases
>wants me to complete and submit forms showing that i've registered for GST (sales tax) with my government even though the government only requires this after u make $75k per year from your business
>on top of that If i register for it, anything else I try to sell commercially now requires I charge GST and complete reports and send them to gov
Guess what? Google Play didn't say shit, just works.

And finally
>try to fucking submit the app to public beta
>get blocked by some fuckhead reviewer over some vague interpretation of the App Store guidelines
Best part is there are hundreds of other games in my games genre. Yet I'm just told to get fucked. (and no my game isn't derivative it has a unique gimmick)

Why the fuck does Apple hate developers so much? How is any of this acceptable. I've never experienced more hassle in my life than trying to make something work for ios.

God I hope Epic takes them for everything in the courts.

/fwt/ - Friendly Windows Thread
Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Windows and share their experiences.
Tell us about tools, utilities, configs, tips & tricks that enhance your life with Windows (ReactOS users are also welcome).

Remember: notice the friendly - please be civil when possible.

>Why do multiple /fwt/ threads exist at the same time recently?
See paste for explanation. TL;DR major case of a shill hijack (by the m*v.n*t shill AKA bandiz*p shill).

>Choosing, downloading, installing, activating windows/office & recommended software (/fwt/ paste)

>gezoesloog's MSDN SVF Collection

Frequently Asked Questions:
>Which version should I download?
>Where can I get the ISOs?
>What does LTSC 2019 have?
>How do I verify the ISOs aren't fake/infected?
>How do I activate Windows?
>How do I change to a different edition post-install?
>How do I disable backported telemetry in 8.1/7?
>What software do you recommend/should I install?
See paste.

>How do I debloat Windows 10 1803-2004?
Offline (pre-installation): Optimize-Offline
Online (live installation): / W10Privacy

>Do I really need to debloat it?
If you had to ask, probably not.

>Can you get the Ryzen scheduler on LTSC 2019?
No. Wait for LTSC 2022, or use SAC (semi-annual channel) editions.

>Can I upgrade to LTSC 2019?
Only from a previous LTSC build w/o doing the upgradematrix hack in paste.

>Is Windows 10 1909 OK? How about 2004?
Only Education & Enterprise. 2004 only if you want new features and don't mind the SSD defrag bug.

>I already run Windows 7, but don't want to clean install?
The non-LTSC installers can upgrade.

>Are homebrew ISOs safe to use (Gen2/Ameliorated)?
Depending on trust, almost never. Most of the time these are unverifiable and unreproducible.

Who has started their technology minimalism journey?
pic related.

Me? Looking to sell my Desktop PC i7-6700k, 2080 RTX, 16GB RAM, etc.

and start using my fully spec'd MBP 16" 2019 fulltime. The fucker has an i9-9980HK for goodness sake.

Using a docking station with an eGPU + Windows Bootcamp to play Gaymens, have it permanently fixated at home with two monitors. This allows me to take it when going to work and seems like a perfect idea.

Am I missing something? Laptops really have made leaps and bounds.

non-firefox browser extensions

Everybody is once again disappointed by mozilla and afraid of the future of firefox. Nowadays browsers are either firefox-based or chromium-based, but all firefox-based browser are maintained by the community and it's pretty obvious they wouldn't survive longer than firefox itself.

Apparently, the only viable choice is to either sink with the ship or switch to some chromium based browser. Firefox users are notoriously attached to extensions and customization. What are some good chromium-based browser extensions?

My sisters macbook air's screen broke, like the cheap piece of shit it is. I told my dad that I would sell it to raise some money to get her a new laptop for school (she's using my thinkpad atm) but i can't get this fucking thing unlocked.
I have the thing hooked up to my tv using a usb-c to hdmi adapter, but the only thing i can see on the screen is a grey screen and the cursor.
is there a keyboard shortcut that allows screen mirroring, instead of this extended display shit? I can't sell it until I get my sisters data off and wipe it.

What's the future of docker and containerisation? Is it a fad? We use it everyday and it's pretty cool but it seems it gets overcomplicated:
>k3s, minikube, microk8s, and whatever the fuck
And it goes on and on. Throw the various "clouds" in there and it seems all so crazy and overcomplicated that I'm afraid it's all going to come crashing down. Also check out this article
Finally is this over-reliance on pre-made images you build upon, some of which may be under proprietary licenses, or worse reliance on "managed" kubernetes and docker "services", against everything that made Linux good and a huge redflag?

Nvidia RTX 3090 PCB leak? External chip on the back
Some Chinaman posted an alleged pic of the backside of a 3090 / 3080 Ti PCB on Plebbit. Claims it has 11GB of VRAM on BOTH sides of the PCB. Pic shows 3x 8-pin, different NVLink connector. It has an "external chip" on the back, which is being covered by an Intel CPU stock photo for safety reasons (it's "classified"). It's not known what it is but it could be the rumored co-processor used for ray tracing calculations.

Hired or Fired - C†† Edition
Welcome. I am sure you are wondering why we asked you, a mere intern, in here today. Well our head developer has a task for you. Complete it satisfactorily, and you will be Hired FULL TIME, (pending a penis exam).

If you can not find a solution, you will be fired, for good.

Today, You will be creating a boolean function for comparing two bitmasks.
// 0000 
// 0000 // true
// 0000
// 0110 // false
// 0001
// 0110 // false
// 0010
// 0110 // true
// 0110
// 0110 // true
// 1110
// 0110 // false

bool thirdImpact( quint8 Asuka, quint8 Rei )
/* Solution Here */
// Heres a bitmask enum to help you
enum AnimeGirl {
Tsundere = 1 << 0,
Loli = 1 << 1,
Magical = 1 << 2,
Yuri = 1 << 3,
Neet = 1 << 4,
Kawaii = 1 << 5,
Mommy = 1 << 6,
Ojou = 1 << 7,

int main( nullptr )
AnimeGirl akari(0);
AnimeGirl rei ( Mommy | Magical );
AnimeGirl asuka ( Tsundere | Ojou );
AnimeGirl vignette( Mommy | Ojou );
AnimeGirl satania ( Magical );
thirdImpact( akari , akari ); // true
thirdImpact( akari , rei ); // false
thirdImpact( asuka , rei ); // false
thirdImpact( rei , rei ); // true
thirdImpact( vignette, rei ); // false
thirdImpact( satania , rei ); // true
return 0;

Clean Code will determine if you are hired, with performance as a tertiary consideration. Bonus points if you use the bitwise operators to achieve a solution!
Good luck!

Open Source/Free Software movement was a mistake. Maybe it was refreshing at the beginning, but now it became direct reason for shit tier programmers existence that copy paste and modify existing code from different resources. Most of them don't read books, only watch pajeets tutorials on YouTube. It also nearly killed competition between programmers. Now every opensource project is just reimplemented copycat (oh they like to called it forked excuse me) of other project.

>firefox is dead
ok google shills, you got me, I just installed chromium. This browser is a piece of shit lacking basic features
scrolling is sluggish
no tree style tabs extension
ctrl + tab moves forward through tabs instead of working like system alt + tab, ff does this wonderfully
no tree style bookmarks, literally unusable without this
can't even mute sound per tab
no wayland support
no temporary containers extension
no custom css styiling
[~] firefox UI is just better

what you win: garbage web apps you shouldn't be using will work better, instead you should use FLOSS, non garbage, native clients

"dead" firefox is more alive than not dead chromium.

Some troubles at Windows 10 updates

KB4565351 nad KB4566782 may get abruptly stuck just before install is finished.

You can get a wide variety of error messages, known examples are: 0x800f0988, 0x800f081f and 0x800f08a.

You may experience these errors if you install those updates to Windows 10 version 1909 or 2004. If its older than this the updates say they are not for such an old version so they don't start the process which leads to error, at all.

Microsoft said they are working for a fix and in the mean time try to avoid installing these 2 updates.

Usually have a better screen? (though not necessarily based on the models I've looked at) What is the catch, why shouldn't I get a gaming notebook?

compressing bloated installed games
recently with things like COD getting to stupid sizes like 200gb+ i was wondering if there is a way to compress games in windows. AFIK the size is mostly beacuse they copy data to multiple places like 5-10times so it can load faster on a slow/aging 7+ year old console HDD and this carries over to PC. considering ill have games on a SSD with a fast processor is there any way to compress them ive tried using the defualt windows right click file/properties/general down buttom advanced/compress method and its done very very little.
is there a more advanced compression method in windows or some 3rd party app i could install? this app that failed to compress was a UWP folder if it matters.

Designing Solar Panel system
I need help making a few decisions when it comes to a DIY Photovoltaic installation I've been working on at home. I am an Electrical Engineer but have no experience in PV systems.

I intend to install up to 12x 100W amorphous silicon flexible film panels (UK does not favour crystalline panels, too few direct sunlight hours per year). Since they give out high voltage (around 300Vdc) it /needs/ (does it really?) to be reduced down by a step-down voltage regulator. Each regulator can take up to 4 panels (400W) so I should need 3 of them for all 12 panels.

However, these step downs come in outputs of 48, 24 and 12Vdc. Since I already have a big battery pack salvaged from 2x General Electric GT Series battery pack (pic related) I'm not sure what would be the best option for the step downs since I can rearrange the 12V battery modules to make up any voltage that suits me best (I am aware the current goes up at lower voltages and might need thicker cabling).

Option A) Wire all batteries to 12, 24 or 48V into a single massive battery (favouring 24V for now as the retail market has a lot of 24V gear I can get easily if needed) with all panel step downs connected to it.

Option B) Split the huge battery in 2 or 3 (still 12, 24 or 48V) among the step downs and build panel for easier charge-discharge cycles and battery rotation.

Option C) Wire batteries up to high voltage >240Vdc and skip the step downs all together with the panels directly connected to them (still fused and diode blocked in between, relax). This was the original General Electric battery pack config, 20x 12V batteries in series, with both modules connected in parallel for extra capacity. However it was directly connected to a battery management module and 240Vac mains as it was working as a UPS system, not a PV system.

Help me out /g/!
