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/
  • How to figure out full curl equivalent of a button click (2021/04/11 17:46)
    How to figure out full curl equivalent of a button click:

    I’m pretty fresh on Linux. I do understand the basics of programming. I am in a rural area and my only internet option is a usb based modem. Every so often the modem will error out and needs to be rebooted. I can do this from the lan by using the modem web control panel, but this doesn’t help me when I’m out of town and now my security cameras are offline.

    If I have a button in a browser I can hit to do something. How do I determine what the equivalent curl command would be? I know I can get some traffic details from developer mode in most browsers, but I am having difficulty figuring out how to get this specific information.

    I’m sure this is a pretty complex question and I appreciate any help anyone can offer.

  • I wrote a network manager in shell.. kind of (2021/04/11 16:35)
    I wrote a network manager in shell.. kind of:

    Basically the title. Ever since I started using arch linux (btw), I’ve been trying to continually shrink my footprint on my laptop. And network managers are kind of bloatware. All you need to run this is wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd.

    What it is

    It’s a shell script that does the annoying wpa_supplicant sh!t. You know, like having to specify minimal configuration every time you want to scan. Or having the kill the process whenever you want to switch networks. Having to write a whole line of shell whenever you want to connect to a network yadda yadda I’m sick of it. So I made this :)

    Functionality

    Right now, it has two primary functions and one sub-function.

    The first is the scan function. Pretty self explanatory. Except here you don’t have to manually set a configuration file, exec scan, and then exec scan_results. You just exec # device scan.

    # device scan

    The second is the connect function. Again, self explanatory; It allows you to connect to networks. Right now, it might only work for WPA but public networks might work as well.. but that’s not all my friends. YOU CAN [easily] SAVE A PROFILE. The nomenclature is # device connect [ssid] [passwd] and if you want to save it, you just add save to the end like so # device connect [ssid] [passwd] save [name]. The name is optional and if it stays unset, the config file will be named after the ssid.

    # device connect [ssid] [passwd]

    # device connect [ssid] [passwd] save [filename]

    Lastly (for now), but certainly not least is the -s flag for the scan function…

    # device scan -s

    Stick that bad boy at the end of scan like so # device scan -s and it will parse through your wpa_supplicant config files and test if any of them match up with currently available networks…

    and then it asks you if you want to connect.

    You can also just say “n” and it will continue parsing until you’ve denied every recognized config or accept one.

    Compatibility

    You need the coreutils, wpa_supplicant, and dhcpcd. It may or may not work on dmenu. If it works, the scan will be pointless. But it would be cool to connect to a network.

    Shortcomings

    I would imagine a lot of things. This small step basically covers my daily network needs. But I don’t manage any servers or know anything about networking. The code is also not looking suuuuupppeeerrr hot since I’ve been up two nights in a row working on it. Also, it has to be run in root as of right now.

    In terms of what happens if you f up your nomenclature… idk. It will probably just return some wpa_supplicant errors. But yeah the whole root thing is not ideal.

    Future plans

    Probably configuring ip is at the top of the list. I want to be able to specify and interface. In the future, I may just grep it from ip by default. Also, more wpa_cli functionality. Additionally, I need to figure out the alias commands in wpa_cli. I may do my bluetooth in the same .sh.

    Final thoughts

    I’m at the end thinking what if everyone has a bunch of shell scripts and I’m just another brick in the wall. But I just thought it was cool. I hope you guys do to. If anyone likes it, I can definitely post a more revised version of the script. Have a goo day.

  • Storage devices, boot device (2021/04/11 15:46)
    Storage devices, boot device:

    Hello, I have recently installed my first ever installation of Linux, the distribution being Pop!_OS. I have a question about my storage devices.

    I installed the OS on an SSD, which is labeled as /dev/sdb. Then I plugged in my mass-storage HDD, which is labeled /dev/sda. I partitioned it with cfdisk on terminal and made one partition being the whole storage. It has the exf4 filesystem if I recall correctly.

    My question is, does it matter that the boot device is labeled as sdb, emphasis on the ‘b’?

    If there is any resource for me to check if my devices are correctly setup that would be appreciated!

  • 10 Linux distros reviewed (2021/04/11 14:34)
    10 Linux distros reviewed:

    Ubuntu 9.5/10

    The Linux ambasador, good for begginers and any distro related to it in any way is blessed with high software availability. One thing I don’t like is the fact that if any corporate wants to release their software on Linux they’ll make sure it runs on Ubuntu and nothing else. Even some Ubuntu derivates have problems when running software that was designed and tested for their father-distro.

    Manjaro 10/10

    My daily driver (xfce) and all-time favorite, the power of Arch and yet an easy installation. Software repositories can just be toggled on and off. It doesn’t came with no-nonsense dependencies or obscure apps no one uses. It really pisses me of how on Debian based distros I have at least 3 python versions and none of them have pip, which makes my developer job trickier. On Manjaro I have everything straight away and all the newest programming languages and tools.

    Solus 8.4/10

    It’s a good distro but I won’t reccomend as a daily driver really, while I love budgie and its out of the box customization, we didn’t need any distro from scratch like Debian or Arch in this day and age. The eopkg repository is as empty as my pocket and it will take at least a few years to a decade until Solus will progenit a recognized family branch. I greatly respect the work behind and the distro itself, but it’s just not my cup of tea.

    Fedora 9.9/10

    A workstation in the literal sense of the word. The Red Hat branch can be proud of this big girl. My productivity at work severely increased on this distro, on a workspace I’m making assets for a website with Inkscape, Gimp etc, one another I’m doing my front-end job. No wonder Linus Torvalds himself uses it as his daily driver. The instalation is rather confusing, making your account AFTER you installed it…but anyway a very great distro.

    MX Linux 8.8/10

    It’s so good that my grandma uses it! Like no joke actually, this distro feels really good, slick fast, the customization is kinda wanky and as I said. It’s mostly good for grannies who can’t afford windows and want to browse on the internet all day.

    Zorin OS 8.7/10 and 9.1/10

    I would make this my daily driver if it wasn’t so behind, I really love Lite version which I would install on any weak pc, but the terminal is ugly and desktop is hardly customizable on Lite . Core and Ultimate are slightly higher in score but I don’t like that they try to sell you a pseudo-xfce at first glance when it’s gnome. The current version it’s still based on the old Ubuntu LTS and it’s a huge gap compared to other sister distros.

    Elementary OS 9.3

    Now I have VERY mixed feelings about this distro. It’s the only distro that I know that uses Pantheon out of the box to appeal to Mac users who want to switch to Linux. However this distro inherited some other practices that make Mac not so loved in the first place. It has over almost 300 exclusive apps built in an obscure programming language (Vala which is to Elementary OS what Swift is to Mac ). Also, just like Zorin, it’s behind the curve, not even reaching the nearest Ubuntu LTS.

    Sabayon 6.8

    Now Gentoo just isn’t a good distro to be based on. Now there are a few defects that impede this distro for further:

    The name needs to be changed. When I search this distro on Google I get various foods. Now this is not a joke and I might have lost your attention with this point but hear me out, the name really matters. Look at Solus and Endeavor, both of them changed their name and both sky-rocketed due to it. Coming back to my original point, being a distro based on Gentoo means it’s development sorely depends on its daddy-distro. Sabayon is to Gentoo what Manjaro is to Arch, the only difference that makes the other a successful distro and Sabayon a forgotten, ominous gentoo distro is their development cycle. Arch acts as a testing ground for Manjaro, in a good way, Manjaro gets all the bleeding edge software fresh and stable due to it. Gentoo itself is a distribution extremely hard to maintain. Sabayon is stagnation software wise to the point where it can no longer be considered a rolling distro but a fixed point release. How so? Integer releases like 16,17,18 etc are all bringing something new yet behind other distros. Floating releases like 18.1 18.2 etc are all mostly just security updates.

    Pop_OS! 9.8/10

    It’s Ubuntu, but it’s better, a more traditional gnome approach, instalation is incredibly easy and intuitive. Having an actual PC manufacturer behind is what it gives this distro such a confident usage and overall usage.

    Endeavor 10/10

    Writing a review for this distro would be very hard because it’s not a distro, it has so many flavors that it represents the overall arch community. It’s a hive-mind. I’d use this distro as a daily driver but I’m afraid to make epilepsy. Any DE on this bad boy is eye-candy.

  • Graphics Drivers (2021/04/11 13:46)
    Graphics Drivers:

    So now that my secondary drive is operational, I’ve run into the issue of the games themselves running slow. When I initially installed my OS, it was running the official nVidia drivers. (I run a GTX 2060 Super for reference). But that caused everything to run slowly at a very low resolution for some reason. I got the noveau drivers installed and working since, but those are running my games at less than optimal speeds. I can’t seem to find much else for driver options, so what is actually supposed to be done here? I had the noveau drivers working fine on a previous install, but for some reason I’ve been unable to replicate that and I’m not aware of anything I’ve done differently.

    i3 won't run scripts through a key combination:

    #!/bin/sh SHELL=/bin/sh PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin export DISPLAY=:0.0 scrot -s /home/username/pics/screenshots/$(date +%Y_%m_%d_%H_%M_%S).png xclip -selection clipboard -t image/png -i /home/username/pics/screenshots/$(ls -Art /home/username/pics/screenshots | tail -n 1) 

    It’s supposed to open a screenshot selector, and then once the screenshot is taken it’ll save the screenshot, and also save the screenshot to the clipboard.

    However, this script doesn’t run when I try and run it through a key combination in i3 with bindsym $mod+p exec /home/username/pics/screenshot.sh.

    I’m also unable to run any scripts that aren’t just the screenshot script, but I’m able to run scripts at the beginning of my i3 config file to set my wallpaper and the like when I boot up my PC.

  • Need some help writing a clonezilla prerun script (2021/04/11 10:46)
    Need some help writing a clonezilla prerun script:

    I have a grub entry to make restoring my hard drives from image easier. thing is the drives tend to switch around sometimes (ex. sdb swaps with sda).

    since clonezilla seems to support prerun scripts id like to check if for ex. the drive assigned as sda matches a specific serial number before proceeding with the restore and abort with error message if not. too new to figure out how to go about this. this is what the grub entry looks like:

    setparams "r-sda" set isofile="/clonezilla/clonezilla-live-2.6.0-37-amd64.iso" loopback loop (hd3,1)$isofile linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live live-config noswap nolocales union=overlay edd=on nomodeset ocs-prerun=\"mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt\" ocs_prerun1=\"mount --bind /mnt/clonezilla /home/partimag/\" ocs_live_run=\"ocs-sr -e1 auto -e2 -j2 -nogui -v -scr -p poweroff restoredisk sda-backup sda\" ocs_live_extra_param=\"\" keyboard-layouts=\"\" ocs_live_batch=\"yes\" locales=\"\" vga=788 ip=frommedia nosplash toram=filesystem.squashfs findiso=$isofile initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img 

    it would also be nice if the output from clonezilla could be logged and saved somewhere.

  • Set up Wifi, set up a VPN via OpenVPN file -Went to wireless connection settings, enabled "Connect to VPN" automatically- but at startup, it tries too fast,then fails and quits since wifi is still connecting then. How to fix this? (2021/04/11 10:46)
    Set up Wifi, set up a VPN via OpenVPN file -Went to wireless connection settings, enabled "Connect to VPN" automatically- but at startup, it tries too fast,then fails and quits since wifi is still connecting then. How to fix this?:

    As the long title mentioned-

    I set up Wifi, then set up a VPN via it’s open vpn files i can connect to at will in the Network Manager- I went back to the wireless connection and enabled connected to VPN- BUT, when I start the computer,

    and log on- it tries and fails, and i think it’s because it takes a few seconds for wifi to get going -and it’s also trying the VPN startup too soon, i think.

    Is there a way to get the Network Manager[this is in Debian] to retry the VPN a second time ? that might buy enough time for it as it gets the wifi connection going.

    If not, any other way I can tackle what seems to be a too-fast auto start thing?
