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) — https://linuxmintambassadors.tumblr.com/

  • Recommend me something to revive old pcs (2021/02/27 01:46)
    Recommend me something to revive old pcs:

    Hey lads, how you doing? Okay? Good thing! I need a little advice from the long bearded gurus.

    I have several old pcs that I want to revive. They range from 1gb to 4gb ram and all have slow dual core intel cpus, one is x86 and the others I think are x64; also, no dedicated graphics, so that ram is splitted. And because I thinkered with one so much, it’s in a bad estate, can’t even install proper display drivers, so I’m stuck with stretched 4:3 and a really slow computer.

    So, what do you recommend me to install? Some lightweight distro? Maybe arch, gentoo or something like that? I’m a complete noob in linux but, since is not a computer I’m using, I can thinker with it until I get it working properly, so don’t mind sending me some not noobfriendly things.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Recommend me a linux OS that have display color calibration options.:

    My laptop screen colors get all weird, almost unnusable without a calibration made via software like in windows. I want to switch to linux, but without a color calibration option, i cant.

    Already tried Zorin and Mint, both did not had colour calibration options. Please recommend me a OS that has those options. Also i will not buy any calibration hardware to use with software like displaycal, that needs hardware. Thanks.

  • Looking to make the switch from Windows 10 to Linux. A few general questions... (2021/02/26 23:46)
    Looking to make the switch from Windows 10 to Linux. A few general questions...:

    I ’ve recently built a new PC (huge investment) which hasn’t been set up yet. I’m thinking of finally making the switch to Linux and have been doing a lot of research. For starters, this is the new build (not sure if it matters, although it ties into a question I have):

    • Gigabyte X399 AORUS PRO ATX sTR4 Motherboard
    • AMD Threadripper 2950X 3.5 GHz 16-Core Processor
    • Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory (64 GB total)
    • Samsung 970 Pro 512 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (x2)
    • EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti 11 GB FTW3

    I’m ready to ditch Windows and start new - I’ve been using it since the days of Windows 3.1, it is all I’ve ever known, and I am fed up with the horrible optimization and background processes, privacy issues and other numerous other issues (I typically re-install Windows every 2-3 years because the registry seems to get clogged with things that have been uninstalled long ago, straggling files left behind in hidden areas, etc.)

    I’m looking for a Windows alternative that is faster, more optimized, has less background resources - or at least gives you the freedom to kill the ones you don’t use and completely uninstall them. I’d really prefer if it had a very close “look and feel” to Windows, though. I’m so hard wired to using a Windows interface and I’d prefer to keep that.

    Things I use my PC for-

    • Gaming (Steam)
    • Video editing (AfterEffects…although I’ve been looking into open source alternatives)
    • Graphics (Photoshop, Illustrator - although I’m looking into open source alt’s for these, too)
    • General internet use, Word/Excel (I recently switched to LibreOffice)

    Things I’m concerned about in switching to Linux:

    • Programs not being compatible, mainly Steam games. I did internet searches and it appears as though this is pretty seamless, and you can use Wine for things that aren’t.
    • Hardware (see my list at the very top) not being compatible or even recognized. This is sometimes an issue with Windows, but can be fixed with a BIOS flash…is this something to be concerned about with Linux?
    • Overall feeling of uneasiness in using an OS that I have no familiarity with, and not knowing how long it will take to get used to using.

    In my research, based on what I’m looking for, it seems like these two might be best for me [this is what I’d really like feedback on]:

    • Zorin OS
    • Mint

    Any feedback would be much appreciated - thanks in advance!

  • I’ve filled up my 18GB root partition after ~3 months. Is this normal? (2021/02/26 23:46)
    I’ve filled up my 18GB root partition after ~3 months. Is this normal?:

    This is my first time using a separate root partition after using Linux for a couple of years, and my first Pop OS installation. I don’t think I’m installing an unreasonable amount of things, but I have a couple of suspects:

    • Pop OS updates (often ~20 at a time, a few times per week, sometimes in the 100s of MBs)

    • Python packages: I usually install things with pip, and some packages can be rather large it seems. I’ve read that people often use virtualenvs for all python projects, but it seems so wasteful to always have to install the same packages over and over.

  • how to make /boot partition smaller (2021/02/26 23:34)
    how to make /boot partition smaller:

    so toaday I dualbooted Pop!_os with windows 10

    windows -> 255GB ssd

    pop -> 4TB hdd with 4 partitions(storage , /boot , /root , /home)

    storage is 1.5TB

    /boot is 500GB(which I want to lower to 1GB)

    /root 800GB

    /home 1TB

    I have no idea if this is the real prtition layout but it should be similar to this(I am 100% sure /boot is 500GB). And if you havent figured it out I want to lower the /boot partition to 1GB

    Offensive Wifi Toolkit. Tool for beginners to preform basic wireless network attacks.:

    Made this script for basic wifi hacking. I’m calling it Offensive Wifi Toolkit or OWT for short. This script comes with U.I. where you can select multiple options and choose what kind of attack you want to do. You can scan and select a network to attack and then choose attack mode. This information is much more detailed on the repository page (link below). I’m looking for people to try the script out and report bugs to the issues section of the github. Stars are always appreciated

  • External CD/DVD drive (2021/02/26 22:46)
    External CD/DVD drive:

    I just recently made the switch from W7 to Linux for the first time. Everything has been working out smoothly, with the exception of one thing. I normally use an external CD/DVD drive to rip CDs. After the install I tried a couple of programs from the store, but none of them were able to rip any CD. The ripping process will start, but it will quickly run into some undefined error and stop. I also tried to do it from the Disks program without luck.

    Any good tips for troubble shooting is appreciated.

    Edit: I’m on Pop OS

  • glyphs in urxvt (2021/02/26 22:46)
    glyphs in urxvt:

    i wanted to give the rxvt terminal a try since the people that use it love it so i downloaded the rxvt-unicode-pixbuf-patched version from AUR, made some changes to .Xresources file and no matter what i do with the fonts and settings, i can never get the glyphs to display any bigger than what is in the photo. i use the ‘exa’ command for 'ls’ and with that, you see a nice display of a folder for directories and different glyphs for different file types. anyway, i was wondering if anyone can get full size glyphs to display using rxvt and what u did to achieve this?

    the pictures attached are screenshots from my terminal, the one with larger glyphs is using tilix terminal and the one with smaller glyphs is rxvt-unicode

  • Finding out the differences of Xorg in Debian and Gentoo (2021/02/26 22:34)
    Finding out the differences of Xorg in Debian and Gentoo:

    I am trying to find out the differences of Xorg in Debian and Gentoo, or finding in the best case how to build Xorg in Gentoo like it is in Debian.

    Background: I have an XP-Pen Artist graphics tablet, that comes with a proprietary driver that works fine on Debian testing. In Gentoo, the driver recognizes the input (the 3.0.x version contains a debug tool, that shows the coordinates and pressed buttons), but it does not send the pen movement to the xserver. I now wonder, what’s the difference between the xserver built by Gentoo and Debian.

    The digimend project says that the proprietary driver sends “xe events”. I am not sure what they are and how to debug them. I tried if strace shows something when using the driver, but it does not show anything for pen movements.

    Relevant Use-Flags: x11-base/xorg-server ipv6 udev xorg -systemd xnest xvfb xephyr kdrive wayland INPUT_DEVICES=“libinput wacom void evdev vmmouse synaptics joystick”

    I am looking for how to get started debugging either the proprietary driver or finding out the exact differences in the xserver builds in debian and Gentoo. The Debian package seems to make use of the debhelper and build the server mostly with default options, when I understand their very short rules file correctly. For Gentoo I already experimented with different use-flags, especially with respect to evdev vs. libinput.

    As I probably need to debug the actual problem myself, I am mostly interested in hints about the differences between the xserver builds and how I can debug the “xe event” thing. Of course, I am happy when someone knows the solution the actual problem, but at the moment I am happy about any hint how to debug X11 input issues.

  • Cant connect with NetworkManager ethernet/wifi (arch 5.11.1) (2021/02/26 21:46)
    Cant connect with NetworkManager ethernet/wifi (arch 5.11.1):

    Preamble: I like linux, have tried a good few distros, used them a lot, but always found it difficult to feel like i was ever getting a good understanding of how it works in a way that’d help with being able to troubleshoot some things and tailor it more, arch linux seemed like a good way to learn to do that, but I’ve hit a snag i cant work out and the arch linux reddit seemed less noob friendly support wise lol

    Distro: arch linux 5.11.1

    Hardware: thinkpad t420

    Theres two issues: 1. Trying to connect to my wifi kept returning “Error: Connection activation failed: (7) Secrets were required, but not provided.”

    What i tried(a mess sorry, i tried a lot and my adhd makes it hard to remember when and in what order): i switched radio off and on, deleted the connections, reconnected, plugged, unplugged, moved closer to the router, checked the service was running (it was as far as i could tell), tried using the bssid but no luck.

    So i tried checking the config file which was blank except for two commented lines, one directing me to the manuel and i thought oh, yeah, that’s a thing! So ctrl+x out if nano and tried to do that and realised i had not installed the package for the man command lol which lead to problem two..

    1. My ethernet cable that definitly works and was working before on this laptop when i used it to initially install other packages, and even after deleting it’s connection and reconnecting it then deleting it again, was now not working and was only showing as disconnected when listing the devices!

    I was thinking of just reinstalling arch and starting another test run again but if anyone can spot the rookie error i made or ran in to similar issues that’d be helpful, thank you
