Reddit: Can't switch because of drivers?

Monday 6th of June 2016 12:52:12 AM

Hey guys,

I'm a longtime windows user and I would like to switch, because I can definitely see the upsides of it, but I don't really know if it's even "viable". I don't really think I'll have problems with linux in general since I have no problem in searching solutions etc. and also already do more advanced stuff.

At first I thought I would have software problems like not being able to use excel etc. but I guess all these things would still work "ok" in a seamless/unity vm and that's not really a problem.

But I don't really see a solution for just plain out missing drivers. As an example right now I have a steelseries mouse and although it would work under linux I would have to use the default settings since steelseries engine is not available. The same goes for my creative sound blaster g5. It wouldn't even work at all.

Like I said I would like to switch but I can't see how it would be viable, since I couldn't really use some of my hardware and also would be limited in the future in new purchases since I most external peripherals aren't really supported.

Am I wrong?

So my mom sent me an old computer with overall decent specs. But I went to put debian on it and I ran into a problem because there aren't any drivers for an ATI radeon 4670. How do I find some graphics drivers to use?

Reddit: linux tip: track your /etc and ~/.config changes with git

Monday 6th of June 2016 12:14:28 AM

Just a tip I thought I'd share that makes debugging changes to your system configurations and editing them much less stressful. No more cp /etc/foo/bar.cfg /etc/foo/bar.cfg.bak.

Just do this:

$ cd /etc $ sudo su # git init . # git add * # git commit -am 'initial commit' # git status (make sure you're not missing anything important) # chmod -r 700 /etc/.git (possibly root read only configs that need to stay that way)

Now you can edit away without worrying about breaking stuff or losing old versions of configuration files. You might also check du -sh /etc first to make sure you're not committing huge files.

Learned this trick from an old coworker. It makes debugging configs completely painless, and you can see what changes occurred after updates and things like that. Just remember to add your new configs if you install a new package like nginx, and also after you run updates that update software to new versions with new configs, etc.

Hey All!

I just wanted to see if anyone knew of any repositories where I might find some project ideas to boost my knowledge and experience with Linux. I'm pretty proficient already, but I've reached a bit of a "block", where I can't seem to find any substantial content for the purposes of self-training.

Thanks!

Reddit: What is the reason of the missing "create new file" keyboard shortcut in all Linux DEs?

Sunday 5th of June 2016 08:35:16 PM

You can create a new folder with CTRL + SHIFT + N , but you are unable to create a new file without creating some script and assigning some shortcut to it. Why is that? Is there any historical reason for that? If you can create a file in terminal using the touch command why is it not implemented in file managers like Nautilus, Nemo, Dolphin, etc. too, e.g. CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + N or something like that?
