Linux Mint Ambassadors tumblr

Ambassadors are Linux Mint users who communicate with their friends about the advantages of using Linux Mint. This project is already working on some other Linux distributions and has been very effective in order to make known Linux distributions. This project is also very functional in Free Software Events and Universities, where local ambassadors support FOSS events in their communities. This work is voluntary and driven by the desire to make free software more and more encouraged. (2012-present) —

  • 400 GB of storage taken up out of nowhere on Linux Mint 20 MATE (2020/09/25 07:46)
    400 GB of storage taken up out of nowhere on Linux Mint 20 MATE:

    Hi there, my device (Acer Aspire 5 A515-54G-797L, Intel® Core™ i7-10510U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8 processor, Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics (CML GT2) ) just seems to be coming up with new problems faster than I can use it to do anything but solve them ever since I installed Linux, but I really want to try and stick to it! Most recently is the problem in the title. I pulled up GParted to demonstrate it to a friend and found that the ~800GB partition Mint runs on was half-full even though I’ve transferred over maybe 50GB of files from my older device total. Any advice? Thank you so much.

  • 10 Open Source Static Site Generators to Create Fast and Resource-Friendly Websites (2020/09/25 07:09)
    10 Open Source Static Site Generators to Create Fast and Resource-Friendly Websites:

    Brief: Looking to deploy a static web-page? No need to fiddle with HTML and CSS. These open source static website generators will help you deploy beautiful, functional static websites in no time.

    Technically, a static website means the webpages are not generated on the server dynamically. The HTML, CSS, JavaScript lie on the server in the version the end user receives it. The raw source code files are already prebuilt, the source code doesn’t change with the next server request.

    It’s FOSS is a dynamic website which depends on several databases and the web pages are generated and served when there’s a request from your browser. Majority of the web is powered by dynamic sites where you interact with the websites and there are plenty of content that often change.

    Static websites give you a few benefits like faster loading times, less server resource requirements, and better security (debatable?).

    Traditionally, static websites are more suitable for creating small websites with only a few pages and where the content doesn’t change too often.

    This, however, is changing thanks to static website generator tools and you can use them to create blogs as well.

    I have compiled a list of open source static site generators that can help you build a beautiful website.

    It’s worth noting that you will not get complex functionality on a static website. In that case, you might want to check out our list of best open source CMS for dynamic websites.

    1. Jekyll


    Jekyll is one of the most popular open source static generator built using Ruby. In fact, Jekyll is the engine behind GitHub pages which lets you host websites using GitHub for free.

    Setting up Jekyll is easy across multiple platforms which includes Ubuntu as well. It utilizes Markdown, Liquid (for template), HTML, and CSS to generate the static site files. It is also a pretty good option if you want to build a blog without advertisements or a product page to promote your tool or service.

    Also, it supports migrating your blog from popular CMSs like Ghost, WordPress, Drupal 7, and more. You get to manage permalinks, categories, pages, posts, and custom layouts, which is nice. So, even if you already have an existing website that you want to convert to a static site, Jekyll should be a perfect solution. You can learn more about it by exploring the official documentation or its GitHub page.

    2. Hugo


    Hugo is yet another popular open source framework for building static sites. It’s built using the Go programming language.

    It is fast, simple, and reliable. You also get some advanced theming support if you need it. It also offers some useful shortcuts to help you get things done easily. No matter whether it’s a portfolio site or a blog, Hugo is capable enough to manage a variety of content types.

    To get started, you can follow its official documentation or go through its GitHub page to install it and learn more about its usage. You can also deploy Hugo on GitHub pages or any CDN if required.

    3. Hexo


    Hexo is an interesting open-source framework powered by Node.js. Similar to others, you will end up creating blazing fast websites but you will also get a good collection of themes and plugins.

    You do get a powerful API here to extend functionality as per your requirements as well. If you already have a website, you can simply use its Migrator extension as well.

    To get started, you can go through the official documentation or just explore their GitHub page.

    4. Gatsby


    Gatsby is an increasingly open-source popular site generator framework. It utilizes React.js for creating fast and beautiful websites.

    I was quite interested to give this a try for some experimental projects a few years back and it is impressive to see the availability thousands of new plugins and themes. Unlike other static site generators, you can use Gatsby to generate a site and get the benefits of static sites without losing any features.

    It offers a lot of useful integrations from popular services. Of course, you can keep it simple or use it coupled with a popular CMS of your choice, which should be interesting. You can take a look at their official documentation and its GitHub page to find out more on it.

    5. VuePress


    VuePress is a static site generator powered by Vue.js which happens to be an open-source progressive JavaScript framework.

    If you know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, you can easily get started using VuePress. You should find several useful plugins and themes to get a head start on building your site. Also, it seems like Vue.js is being actively improved and has the attention of more developers, which is a good thing.

    You can learn more about it through their official guide and the GitHub page.

    6. Nuxt.js


    Nuxt.js utilizes Vue.js and Node.js but it focuses on providing modularity and has the ability to rely on the server-side instead of the client-side. Not just that, it aims to provide an intuitive experience to the developers with descriptive errors, and detailed documentations among other things.

    As it claims, Nuxt.js should be the best of both world with all of its features and flexibility that you get to build a static website. They also offer a Nuxt Online sandbox to let you directly test it without a lot of effort.

    You can explore its GitHub page or visit the official site to get more details.

    7. Docusaurus


    Docusaurus is an interesting open-source static site generator tailored for building documentation websites. It happens to be a part of Facebook’s open source initiative.

    It is built using React. You get all the essential features like document versioning, document search, and translation mostly pre-configured. If you’re planning to build a documentation website for any of your products/services, this should be a good start.

    You can learn more about it on its GitHub page and its official website.

    8. Eleventy


    Eleventy describes itself as an alternative to Jekyll and aims for a simpler approach to make faster static websites.

    It seems easy to get started and it also offers proper documentation to help you out. If you want a simple static site generator that gets the job done, Eleventy seems to be an interesting choice.

    You can explore more about it on its GitHub page and visit the official website for more details.

    9. Publii


    Publii is an impressive open-source CMS that makes it easy to generate a static site. It’s built using Electron and Vue.js. You can also migrate your posts from a WordPress site if needed. In addition to that, it offers several one-click synchronizations with GitHub Pages, Netlify, and similar services.

    You also get a WYSIWYG editor if you utilize Publii to generate a static site. To get started, visit the official website to download it or explore its GitHub page for more information.

    10. Primo

    Primo Af

    An interesting open-source static site generator which is still in active development. Even though it’s not a full-fledged solution with all the features compared to other static generators, it is a unique project.

    Primo aims to help you build and develop a site using a visual builder which can be easily edited and deployed to any host of your choice.

    You can visit the official website or explore its GitHub page for more information.

    There are a lot of other site generators available out there. However, I’ve tried to mention the best static generators that gives you the fastest loading times, the best security, and an impressive flexibility.

  • Poor framerate in TF2 with a competent system (2020/09/25 06:56)
    Poor framerate in TF2 with a competent system:

    After dumping Windows 10 for Ubuntu 20.04, I installed TF2. The game runs pretty poor at default settings, dancing around 40fps in active settings. I have no idea why, as my machine easily pulls over 200+ fps on Windows in the same title. Also, attempting to force the game to use the latest Proton release lands it in “unsecured mode” which bars me from playing on VAC servers, but has notably better performance. Any advice from fellow TF2 linux players? Thanks.
    Also, specs in case anyone asks

    pretty much just the title. if i set my bios to dedicated gpu, it will show the post codes, bios flash, and then the screen just turns off. if i set my bios to integrated graphics, i see nothing for a few seconds and then the ubuntu login.

    I just discovered Chip's Challenge(the reboot?) on linux:

    I was spending some time learning more about apt search and different ways to get the results I want. During some experimental searches, I came across “tworld” in the repo…

    In the description, it said Chip’s challenge… I thought… theres no fn way…

    but WAY!!!!

    its a legitimately good FOSS remake.

    I just wanted to share my excitement.

  • is it possible to get a virus from the official repositiories? (2020/09/25 06:34)
    is it possible to get a virus from the official repositiories?:

    I tend to download and install things from the repos when they spark my interest.

    If it doesn’t work, I just remove it.

    Sometimes I have issues removing things though.. does that mean I might thave downloaded a virus?

    Specifically, I downloaded the purity test.

  • What does knowing linux really means? And what are projects that keeps you using it daily? (2020/09/25 06:34)
    What does knowing linux really means? And what are projects that keeps you using it daily?:

    You know those job descriptions that says “computer skill proficient”? Like of course I know how to use a pc, but I feel like being born in the 90s and having a pc all my life I never really needed to learn how to use one to its core. I just managed by navigating through the GUI.

    Now I want to learn linux to be more pc literate, but with how developed linux is, I feel I will fall again on the GUI and get used to it as another OS.

    I plan to learn web dev, so I will lean towards managing linux servers. I am planning on getting a raspberry pi to play around with web hosting, and probably a home NAS, but I feel like something like FreeNAS has its own UI so I don’t know if I can keep learning aside from installing it.

    What else do you recommend I should focus/learn, what are some projects that can keep me engaged in linux? Like I am not trying to fix hard things but more like a constance maintenance

  • How to lower input latency on the Sony DualShock 4 over bluetooth (2020/09/25 04:56)
    How to lower input latency on the Sony DualShock 4 over bluetooth:

    What may seem counter intuitive is that the Sony DualShock 4 has lower input latency when using bluetooth then USB. The reasoning is that the polling rate for USB is 250hz so there is new data every 4 ms. Where as over bluetooth the polling rate can be 1 ms. Why is this a concern on Linux? Because it seems that hid_sony.c defaults to 4ms even when using bluetooth:

    However this is configurable and you can set the polling rate to 1ms manually through sysfs:

    $ cat /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-14/1-14:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:256/0005:054C:09CC.000D/bt_poll_interval 4 $ echo 1 | sudo tee /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-14/1-14:1.0/bluetooth/hci0/hci0:256/0005:054C:09CC.000D/bt_poll_interval 1 

    Also using udev you can have this set when you connect via bluetooth by using this rule:

    ACTION=="bind", SUBSYSTEM=="hid", DRIVER=="sony", KERNEL=="*054C:09CC*", ATTR{bt_poll_interval}="1" 

    You may need to adjust the value for KERNEL to match your controller. I thought I’d post this since I don’t think is widely known, and searching google doesn’t really turn up a lot of relevant results for Linux.

    Also when I checked modinfo hid_sony it doesn’t seem like its exposed as a kernel parameter. So doing this through sysfs appears to be the only way.

  • Dual boot system with weird drive configuration (2020/09/25 04:24)
    Dual boot system with weird drive configuration:

    Hello. I’m a new adopter of Linux, since I need it for college, so I am as new as it gets. So, I have a system with an SSD and an HDD. I would like to be able to have just the OS in the SSD (mainly for the initial boot time) and the rest of my storage on my HDD. I have it mostly set up the same way already with windows (as best as you can with it).

    First, is this possible?

    Second, if it is, how would I go about setting up partitions on the respective drives to achieve it?

    (I have tinkered a little bit with partitions and managed to set it up so that everything can be run through the HDD (efi, swap, root and home partitions), but the speed boost of the SSD would be nice to have)

    Thanks in advance for any help and guidance you can offer
