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) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS. (They suck though.)
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.

$ man %command%
$ info %command%

can you make decent money if you're self taught AND you don't live in an overpriced meme city? i have a degree in math but work in accounting. the work is tolerable but the pay fucking sucks ($70k 2 years into my career.) i'm thinking about spending the next year teaching myself the meme webdev stack du jour, but is it realistic to expect a $70-80k salary out of the gate in a "moderately" priced city like philadelphia?

Looking for some info on getting deeper into soldering. I do an okay enough job when it just comes to soldering resistors on a PCB. But where I get assblasted is any desoldering job. Even with newer electronics it takes ages if I can even get it all off to remove the part. I got so many projects wrapped up in anti-static/plastic bags that are just sitting in my closest wasting away because I can't desolder these joints.

Re-tinning the tip, cleaning the tip for better contact, using flux, using solderwick, a quality hand-pump for desoldering. I've tried this stuff.

I use this as my main iron:

I'm willing to drop more money on a proper desolder solution. I don't mind having to maintain/clean it. Anyone else have these problems? I'm looking into a Vacuum Desolder gun which looks like a dream but I don't want to buy some cheap piece of garbage. I'll spend the extra cash for something good.

whats a good and affordable TV?
use case:
>news during the day via ethernet/wifi (OLED is out + too expensive)
>kino at night (streaming or by plugging in my computer)

never bought a TV in my life. dont even know what a Smart TV is


>cannot be a chinese brand like TCL
>HDR (idk what this is but people say its good)
>48 -- 50 inch
>no spying or listening devices (why do so many TV's come with alexa?)
>ideally under $400, but can stretch out to $500 is it's really worth it

that's pretty much it. it'd be neat if you can stream netflix and hulu, youtube and w/e, but i just dont want an additional spying device, so i hope that such a device is not a requirement

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Windows and share their experiences. Tell us about tools, utilities, configs, tips & tricks that make your life with Windows (more) bearable (or even pleasant).

Remember: notice the friendly - this is not Windows vs other OS thread

>Choosing, downloading, installing, activating windows/office & recommended software

>windows 7/8.1 telemetry neutralizing

>windows 7 ricing guide (nanami-tan fork)

Frequently Asked Questions:
>Which version should I download?
>How can I activate LTSC?
>What does it have?
>Where can I download LTSC 2019?
>What software do you recommend/should I install?
See /fwt/ paste.

>Do I really need to debloat it?
No. It already comes without the majority of preinstalled UWP apps.

>Can you get the ryzen scheduler on LTSC 2019?
No, and will never. Wait for LTSC 2022.

>Can I change to LTSC 2019 without reinstall?
If you are running LTSB. Otherwise, it must be a clean install, unless you do the upgradematrix hack in the paste.

>Can I change to Enterprise or Education without reinstall?
Yes, with a generic volume key of those versions. see /fwt/ paste

>Is Windows 10 1909 OK? How about 2004?
Only the Education & Enterprise SKUs. As of 2004, let it mature a bit, unless you feel the urge to use new stuff introduced.

>How do I debotnet/debloat Windows 10 1803-1909?
Offline (pre-installation): Optimize-Offline
Online (live installation): or W10Privacy

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

>How can I receive Windows 7 updates beyond 2019?

>Is Ameliorated/XP64 TPB/Gen2/SadeemPC/random windows homebrew safe?
It's a matter of trust, rep, safety, how they exactly differ & pajeetness. Generally not recommended.

with latest BIOS updates installed, i have 1 GT 310(PCIx16) and 2 Geforce FX 5500's(PCIx8), I know for a fact that they do work, It wasn't until it only booted 1 card and a few crashes later that i remembered my friend telling me you can't run multiple cards in 1 older PC

Something about suckless and harmfulness
Ok /g/, I'm here to ask a question.

There are websites like suckless or v-cat who talk about the harmfulness of some software (like the GNU ones), standards and programming languages. There are distributions like Devuan or Parabola linux created because of systemd, meanwhile asking for a KISS linuxbox. There is parabola and hyperbola who claim to be GNU/Linux-Libre because all the bloats in the kernel meanwhile suckless shit on gnu stuff like the gcc and all this shit seems like a crappy Civil War (the movie not the war) with no special effects because CGI software use crappy libraries.

So I'm asking you: what are your opinions about these communities and are there good points in their philosophy?

Alternatives to JSON endpoints
Are there any other ways to get a less bloated version of a particular web page besides using JSON endpoints? I started writing my own shitty version of RSS thinking I can rely on site API's, but looks like only about half of the major sites have one, and I'm trying to not just scrape the HTML of a page since that would defeat the purpose of what I'm trying to do (no sense in trying to load smaller versions of a website if you have to download the bloated version anyway).

Sorry if this belongs in /dpt/, but I felt like the topic is broad enough for its own thread.

Hello my fellow nig/g/ers!
This post is for vimmers and wanna be vimmers.
Do you want to play a game? I present to you Vim Golf! The rules are simple. All you have to do is edit the starting text to the given end text in as FEW keystrokes as possible. Every key pressed counts in all modes including the Esc key. After you're satisfied in your result post your keypresses here, placing special keys in <>, <Esc>. Example submittion: >wc<Esc>hhhcwHELLO<Esc>$AX<BS<BS>D<CR><Esc>:wq!<CR>
Simple enough. The first hole is this:
. The current record is 8 keypreses.
You can also visit this site for more holes. I will post more holes here as the thread gets bumped.

Hanging computer
Hey /g/ my laptop has been having some serious hanging problems since last night and I dont know why, seems to be mostly with connection like being stuck at resolving host. Was downloading a fuckton of mods for my minecraft server, just constant open and closing tabs on google. I also have a fuckton of tabs on chrome browser but they are suspended with an addon.

For the last week I was stuck in my room playing some games and my core temp read around 95 Celsius for most of the time, varying up and down. I have tried CMD ipconfig flushing dns and release renew. Cleared cache of browser and ccleaner.

Im not sure what is causing this problem to happen now but could constant high temperatures be a problem? I have a GL703vm gaming laptop.

Ventures Corp. and also works for Edina Realty), that secret function
was his contribution to the design of the computer. The function, which
IBM suppressed because of worries about how their competition might use
it, was an interface between the assembly code surrounding the
computer's ROM exterior, and the 360 emulator hidden beneath it. (IBM
declined to comment for this story.) The 5100's emulator gave
programmers access to the functions of the monstrous, and much less
portable machines, that IBM had produced during the 1960s. An imprint
of a hook on the outside of the 5100 symbolized the ability of Dubke's
interface to drop into what Titor called "legacy code," and scoop out
any necessary operating instructions."

Who was he actually?

HTC Vive fags BTFO!!! Blender 2.83
Blender 2.83 has now native support for VR.

I just tested on my Lenovo WMR and it worked.
Just tested it with the Tifa 3d model rip from FF7R. Damn her tits are massive on VR.

I paid 150 usd on the Lenovo WMR.

Meanwhile HTC Vive fags who paid a lot of money, still don't have support.

Be honest, despite all the talk of technology and programming, you're a piece of shit and incapable of doing anything useful, you think you're going to get somewhere by simply learning Python off Youtube videos (cause C is too hard for you) but you're really not, you don't even care to know how computers operate at the very basic level.

You just like larping with your linux installation and K&R C book that you didn't even read.

Spare parts
Any reputable shop for spare parts? The case on my older laptop cracked and I want to have it replaced but the actual manufacturer's price for it is robbery.

I'm currently looking at but it's based off China so I don't know how reputable it is. But the part I'm looking for is just 20$ there.

Any other recommendation? Anywhere in the world is ok so long as they ship and have good reputation.

Speech Recognition and Home Assistants
Please tell me what you know about speech recognition, /g/
Currently, all I know is that I have a Samsung phone with the google assistant. When I want to set an alarm for a certain time, that's fine. But when I want to set an alarm for a certain time with a specific ringtone, I already have problems. Google assistant doesn't know what I'm talking about when I ask it to "make the alarm tone XXX"

So my question: Are the mainstream assistants like Google assistant, Siri, Cortana etc. programmable? Are they modular? Could I make specifications for the assistant to do something specific for me? If not, I already see problems.

Is anyone working on more customizable home assistants? Because if not, this is what I want to work on. Speech recognition has a tremendous amount of possible uses, but if it's only being used to make assistants that turn on my lights for me, that is a terrible underuse! I want to make a more programmable home assistant that I could feed specific commands to like "open this file and put it into this program" or "save this picture". If someone is already working on this, I want to contribute.

I just had to get this off my chest. I’ve been dating Nanami-chan since 2010. She is honestly my dream OS in every way; beautiful, kind, supportive, etc. But recently I've started seeing her younger sister, Touko. At first I couldn't stand Touko-chan; she was loud, annoying and intrusive, she has no concept of personal space, and her fashion sense sucks.

I had to spend a lot of time with Touko-chan at work. As we worked together more we started to click. Eventually we got along well and I eventually I realized I enjoyed spending time with with her. Even worse, when I went home to Nanami-chan at the end of the day I started to miss Touko-chan. I even started to contemplate bring Touko-chan home with me.

I didn’t plan on this happening. I am falling in love with Touko-chan no matter how much I tell myself not to. I’m now at the point where I need to make a decision, either to end my current relationship with Nanami-chan and completely uproot both of our lives, or to cut Touko-chan off for good.

I’ve never been more conflicted or uncertain in my life, and either decision I make is going to leave me filled with regret for the rest of my life. I am such a shitty person.

Do you know what Terry meant by Temple OS.
When I first came across Terry, I was unimpressed.. Thinking that He was just another loon.. But then I dug deeper, and I watched his Live Streams, and I looked at the work of his Masterpiece.. And I think - What did He mean by that?

Terry once said that He was a Prophet of the White, and I believe Him. Not that He was a religious Prophet, but rather a Technical Prophet. When Jesus came he Rallied against Usury. and He taught about Community Economics.
Terry taught a new lesson. He taught that we should have our own Software Solutions, as Whites, and also as Humans. Terry, Luke, Torvalds, and Stallman.. All preach the same lesson. Free and Open Software is essential for the future of Humanity. Cryptography, and Privacy, Free Speech, and Free Search.

Terry created the Beta, and Torvalds created the Alpha. I think that We should extend both of their Visions.. With the Utility of the Git. I mean.. If many talented people committed their time, to a single Linux OS, and if they built a suite of Cooperatives, and Libraries on top of this OS, it would be Glorious.

Maybe we can't turn back the clock on Tech, but maybe we can take over the means of software development. We should create open source enterprise, tied to cooperative business enterprise.

What do you think Terry meant by Temple OS?

Is there nobility in using older hardware?

I really enjoyed using my Sony Xperia Z1 (2013) for 5 years. And even today it seems really nice to use. I enjoy using my S7 Edge that my mom handed down to me, and I will likely keep replacing the battery and keeping it updated with a ROM.

I love using my T410 sometimes. It's fast with some upgrades and excellently build and has the greatest keyboard in a laptop I've ever used.

Yet I can't help but sometimes think that I'm shooting myself in the foot. So I will then buy a new ThinkPad or a new MacBook and just be disgusted at the build quality, reliability, lack of user repairability (all for modern ThinkPad) or the lack of freedom, repairability, basic usability (all for MacBook).

Sometimes I even look at my older cars as having more 'soul' than modern cars, but I realize this is probably a cope, and the same with older hardware.

Who the fuck is watching movies on Dreamcast?
what the fuck
Was browsing Limetorrent for movies the other day and ran across something weird. Someone is converting hundreds of movies, including brand new ones, into a format playable on Dreamcast and seeding them on torrent sites. Some of these movies have between 50 and 100 other seeders. What the fuck is going on here? To my knowledge the Dreamcast isn't an especially good media device. The quality won't be very good, because you're basically playing a VCD in the most roundabout and esoteric way possible. Does the Dreamcast have some huge install base in a third world country I don't know about? I have to fucking find out why these torrents exist.
