Reddit: Trying GUI-less CLI-only Debian as usable desktop

Monday 2nd of March 2015 06:12:45 PM

I've used various distros for a few years, greatly favoring those based on Debian because I've grown accustomed to APT.

As a side fun project I'd like to load a box with a GUI-less CLI-only Debian as a usable desktop. That's easy enough, but my concern is finding CLI apps that aren't a pain to use.

From experience and some searching, here are the apps I plan to use:

EMAIL: Mutt (haven't tried it yet) WEB BROWSER: Lynx (used it a little in the 90s) SYS MON: htop, nmon (I use these all the time currently) PANDORA: pianobar (used it a little a couple years ago)

Three questions: 1. Do you know of any better substitutes to the above apps? 2. Is it possible to view an image in CLI? (in case I get email attachments) 3. Any fun CLI games?

Thanks for any feedback, tips, and gotchas.

EDIT: formatting

Reddit: Linux question.

Monday 2nd of March 2015 05:40:24 PM

Hello, never posted here before so I am sorry if this is in incorrect format. I'm on my phone and cannot see the side bar.

Anyway, I'm going back to school in the fall after getting a worthless degree the last time I went to college. I am going for information technology and one of the classes that is required in Linux. I'm not sure where to start to learn it. Is there a book I can buy or any videos for beginners that would help me get my feet wet before I just jump into it? Or any tips you all have would be greatly appreciated.

The Unreal Engine 4 is now free to everyone along with all future Unreal Engine updates!.. How the Linux Kernel is Like an Open Source Turducken

Monday 2nd of March 2015 05:22:29 PM

The first time I heard the word “coopetition” (“cooperation” and “competition” combined)... I wanted to kill it with fire. But the idea… the idea is a glorious one.

Linux Remote Desktop Roundup

Over the years I've found that a significant hurdle to getting family and friends to switch to Linux comes from its lack of familiarity. This is especially true when it comes to troubleshooting any issues. Obviously, when a malfunction occurs it's not always possible to be there in person. However thanks to the wonders of broadband Internet and advanced software, we're now able to do the next best thing. In this article, I'll share some recommended remote desktop software for Linux. I’ll explore both open source and closed source solutions. Read more

First peek at the next Ubuntu 15.04 nester line-up

Ubuntu 15.04 is here – almost. The first beta of Vivid Vervet has been delivered, and with it have come images of the penguin flock that nestles on this OS. I looked at Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME and Ubuntu MATE but there’s also Lubuntu and the China-centric Ubuntu Kylin, which I didn’t test. These are beta releases and should be considered for testing purposes only, but the advantage of these early versions is that features have been frozen and you can get an early glimpse of what's coming for each of the popular flavours in the 15.04 foundation. From this point on, the only changes will be bug fixes. Read more
