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.

Hi guys, today I wanted to start learning about programming, so I wanted to do that Hello World crap thinking it would be really easy, so I wrote the program:


int main()


printf("\nHello World!");



Post too long. Click here to view the full text.


chmod helloworld 777


Oh… I feel kind of retard.



Don't. We all have done it. Glad you got it figured out.

Hey anons, there's a way to startx automatically on login? I've read that you have to modify /etc/inittab, but I don't have it. I also couldn't find ~/.bash_profile nor /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d/override.conf.

Thanks you anon, but unfortunately that didn't work.
I also read about installing gdm and then do
#update-rc gdm defaults
but I'm not sure about it, nor about:
"I think you should install and use nodm, “an automatic display manager which automatically starts an X session at system boot”. It is extremely lightweight and works like a charm.

Create the file /etc/sv/nodm/conf and add the configuration like this:
NODM_USER='{username}' NODM_XSESSION='/home/{username}/.xinitrc

Additionally, your .xinitrc has to be executable in order to work with nodm (chmod 555)."


Have you tried Ubuntu ?


I've installed a basic Debian.


Use a display manager such as sddm, or install gentoo.



you could try lightdm. this was helpful for me when i was getting it set up. systemctl enable lightdm is the command to enable the daemon, and subsequently an x session, all that you need to figure out is adding it to startup via systemctl

Let's have a thread to share some cool things with each other that help replace garbage programs. As an example, Skype. Skype is garbage, but I've had a really hard time finding something better that's also easy enough to convince friends and family to use. This looks pretty promising: appear.in
What do you guys think? Are there any other neat places you have all found to replace shitty programs?


File: 1517580274968.png (108.31 KB, 500x281, Krita-brushtips-hair_01.png)

It looks like appear.in is using WebRTC to make the connections in browser. Be forewarned.

Krita is by far my favorite painting software. Works everywhere. No matter what computer I am on it's the same experience. A+


Krita is also good as a photoshop/gimp replacement too. really versatile program.

Discord is pretty good alternative right now, in terms of usability and friendliness. However it's not open source, so if you're one of those guys you might not like it. They're also getting video calls soon i think (if they don't already have it), so it's utility as a skype replacement is getting pretty good.

Let's post some addons that you couldn't live without and what they do.

Browser: Firefox v58
Ublock Origin: Block ads
Lastpass: Password manager
Stylus: Change styles for sites. Favorite theme is gruvbox dark.
Vimium-FF: vim keybindings

Tree Style Tab: Display tabs in a tree rather than horizontally. Very useful for large amount of tabs. In the screenshot I have about 30 tabs open.
Tab Session Manager: Saves open tabs in intervals so you can go back to what you were working on days later.


dark mode on firefox is fucking wonderful, it makes everything look really nice. advanced dark mode for pale moon is a lot more feature-rich, though. i use twitter app to add a sidebar to firefox, and i also like greasemonkey for the ability to add custom scripts.


File: 1517170382528.png (181.87 KB, 1280x1440, Screenshot_2018-01-28_14-0….png)

Using Pale Moon 27.7.1 (64bit)

The attached image shows the essentials.

Decentraleyes (for intercepting api.google.com and running local instea)

Encrypted Web (HTTPS Everywhere)

NoScript (Essential. Will not use a browser if I can't control what scripts are being ran on a website)

Redirector (So that YouTube links automatically open on Hooktube.com instead)

uBlock Origin

Dark mode is nice but it doesn't work on some sites like twitch.

You may like the extension flashgot. It's specifically a download manager, but you can config it to open videos in vlc or mpv if you have youtube-dl installed. So you'd be able to right click a video and send it to your out of browser video player.

Why play videos out of browser? You get better playback and you have the option to user shaders like sharpen or denoise.

Firefox quantum isn't compatible with flashgot because it's in the old extension format so I had to settle for 'Open in VLC'


Thanks for the recommendation, anon. I have gnome-twitch installed because the twitch website is shite. I'll give this a go the next time I have to watch something live.


File: 1517181131317.jpg (259.38 KB, 2560x1403, out.jpg)

I just use the twitch site to watch vods. I use streamlink-twitch-gui and chatty twitch client normally.

I find that streamlink twitch gui has better video search than gnome-twitch and use chatty to chat in the channel. I think the user experience is better to have chat in a separate program.

Chatty can be used on it's own to watch twitch streams but there is no search or ability to watch vods.

Ran a benchmark using the Unigine Valley software.

Download here and post results - https://benchmark.unigine.com/valley

As you can see I was running it in Ultra mode at 2560x1440 with 8x Anti-Aliasing.


This is for those of you who ask about this form factor every so often. I hope enough people join so that he makes beige ones.

The X500 Pro is the final product in a line of computer cases designed a few years back (the X500 Plus and later the Evo with a mechanical keyboard) as a tribute to the computers of the '80s and '90s (Commodore, Atari, Sinclair etc…). It's a wedge styled computer case with built-in, full size mechanical keyboard.



That's pretty cool. The keyboard will outlive the usability of the machine. Not sure about the angle of the keyboard though.

I remember havign to reach behind the Commodore to turn it on and off.


The keyboard it comes with is a budget Ducky one. Even though Cherry MX is advertised with the rating of millions of operations, key chatter is bound to develop sooner or later. So the case will probably outlive everything else. You can just replace the Ducky keyboard with another one. As for the keyboard angle, you could use keycaps with a different profile because Cherry MX stems!
