This board is for the discussion of all types of technology, whether it be Google Glass, smartphones, OS's, musical instruments, etc. This board is strictly SFW, so unless VR and porn have become one (which it has), nothing of that sorts.

here's a wallpaper i made

not exactly relevant to a desktop thread, just thought it would be of some use.


It should bretty gud. But I would still recommend installing gentoo the good old fashioned way as a learning experience.


it's terrible, i'm gonna install fedora tomorrow. Shit's unstable as fuck because the devs preconfigure things you're supposed to compile yourself and then forget to update all of it.

Also I have no clue how the fuck to fix anything, so that's also a downside.

Might as well start finalchan off with one of these. Time for a shell script thread.

>post scripts for any shell

>document usage
>others improve your scripts

Finalchan doesn't allow for [code] and [/code] tags so I'm going to post my stuff on pastebin and link it here.

Usage: ./script.sh youtube.com/user/USERNAME/playlists FolderName

What it does:
>curl playlists page

That's what you get for not backing up every configuration file you modify you fucking dumdum.


No, it was my error. I fixed it. It was just a manner of my forgetting a '>'. Also, everything I edit is backed up :D.


The OP script can be slightly modified to download an entire Bandcamp artist's works, sorting them into album-named folders

albums=(`curl $1 | fgrep 'href="/album/' | cut -d '/' -f 3 | cut -d '"' -f 1 | tr "\n" ' '`)
for i in `seq 0 $(echo ${#albums[@]})`; do
youtube-dl -o "./$2/${albums[$i]}/%(title)s.%(ext)s" $1/album/${albums[$i]}

Usage is the same as the YouTube script, but you want the USERNAME.bandcamp.com link instead of the youtube.com/user/USERNAME/playlists link.


This is a redundant script I made some time ago. Enjoy, fags.

I made a quick bashrc alias that makes searching for filenames easier, which comes useful all the time.

You use it with:
$ search anysearchterm
$ search "a search term with spaces"

And it does a case-insensitive search from the current directory.

alias search='function _search(){ find -iname "*$1*"; };_search'

Has /t/ tried out LXQT yet? It's extremely well laid out and uses about as much memory as XFCE. Looks a lot like KDE Plasma but without the glitches/loads of RAM usage. All in all, I'd call it an 8.5/10.


I used it when it was called lXDE. Lost interest when it made the change. Did you use lxde?


lxde still exists, lxqt is a different project that will eventually replace it. lxqt is not too similar to lxde in function, it's much more aesthetic-based now.

Yes, I've used lxde. It worked and it had no real issues, but I preferred xfce.


tbh, I've never bothered to try anything that wasn't openbox, xfce or i3.
I might give it a try sometime.

Let's have a fun little thread. Post in this thread and tell the person above you what distribution they should run. They have to run it in a virtual machine for a day or two and can then come back and share experiences or opinions.

I feel like it's easy to get caught in a rut of one or two distributions and I think it would be fun to do this. Also, I would recommend staying away from gentoo or something that will take too long to install.

Pic mostly unrelated.


I'd recommend trying out korora linux. It's sort of like fedora with less autism. More drivers by default and pre-riced quite well.


Alright. I'll give it a look! And for you, I'll recommend trying out the new AntiX beta. It's probably the perfect distro for old hardware, and the new beta includes a program for streaming internet radio from the terminal, and one to stream youtube audio through the terminal. It uses less than 100 Meg of RAM on boot.


Alright, well, my experience with Korora has been… mixed. When I first went to download the distribution, I noticed there were a multitude of versions. I decided to try out the KDE one since it has been a little since I last tested Plasma 5. This turned out to be a poor choice, not becuase of Plasma, but for a couple of reasons. First, Korora was a little sluggish in my testing, despite allocating 4 GiB of RAM and 4 cores to it. Now, I've gotten much better responsiveness from KDE on way less in the past.

After installing the system, I noticed that VirtualBox guest additions were not installed by default. This isn't a big deal, though a little odd for a distro painting itself as being more user-friendly. I figured I would handle whatever updates were available and then install guest additions. To my surprise, there were almost 1100 updates that needed to be installed. Holy shit. As it turns out, my root partition (9 gig, I figured it would be enough for testing) was not big enough for all of them. After scratching and trying again with an 11 gig root partition with the same results, I became very frustrated. Even on my daily driver that I have been running since January, the root partition has only used 11.2 GB. There was also an abundance of redundant software in Korora, including three different package manager frontends and three different web browsers.

At this point I almost gave up, but I decided to give it one last go. I downloaded the MATE version of Korora instead and installed it on the same 11 gig partition. This one was MUCH better. Still no Virtualbox guest additions, but also much less redundant software, and the still rediculous over 800 updates installed smoothly, as well as said additions. It has been running pretty smoothly since. I still do not think it is the most responsive distribution (Fedora and Fedora base have always seemed a bit heavy to me), but it does do what it says on the tin: makes Fedora prettier and slightly less autistic. Personally, I prefer having .deb compatibility, so I think I'll have to pass on it.

As a conclusion, things were rocky, but ended up alright. In general, I think they need to update their installation media more. Maybe they update the direct downloads and not the torrePost too long. Click here to view the full text.


I only ever used the MATE edition, so I didn't deal with that kde autism

Downloading AntiX right now, looks promising

How does this make you feel?


File: 1497499637489.jpg (39.19 KB, 600x375, stress.jpg)

Why would you do this?


purely out of boredom

it runs quite well in general, but tweak tool doesn't work and you need to use a shortcut to minimize tabs without the OS crashing

all in all 10/10




That's disgusting, why would you ever combine those two?
Regards Lubuntu cunt.

If you had to choose one OS to use for life, what would it be? I would Most likely go with Ubuntu, mostly because of support and documentation, but I'm torn between that or Manjaro.

I'd just like to interject for a moment
What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.

Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Does anybody have one of these for keyboards?

OP here, i actually bought the ninox aurora (from the link at the top of the list)

It's pretty neat, and the sensors are good. Unfortunately it's too small for my giant hands. I'll probably hang onto it though seeing as it might be the last one available anywhere.


File: 1491153589427.png (973.39 KB, 1350x565, IBM_Model_M.png)

This is the only keyboard you're gonna need kid


I used to use a microsoft intellimouse, but now i use a shitty g602. I honestly wish i could go back but if i remember correctly i ended up killing off most of them in about a mounth then getting a new one.
Intellimouse is great but it's shit quality and breaks fast.


File: 1495283273711.jpg (970.94 KB, 3264x2448, image1.JPG)

For those wanting a IBM-like keyboard, Unicomp sells them.


I own one and it's great. Has a nice solid feel and great clunking sound while typing. Obviously, it's loud as fuck from the buckling springs.


File: 1495455577455.jpg (7.2 KB, 355x251, mememouse.jpg)

I just got this thing for $67 because my cheap mouse broke and I wanted something more reliable. It's covered in LEDs but it isn't terrible.

also kek, this has become a mouse thread.
