TuxMachines: Linux Mint 19 'Tara' Cinnamon will be faster

Monday 19th of March 2018 02:00:23 AM

Is Linux Mint slow? Hell, no! The operating system is plenty fast. Speed is in the eye of the beholder, however, and the Mint developers apparently thought app-launching seemed slow when using the Cinnamon desktop environment. They didn't have any proof, but they felt that both Mate and Xfce were faster in this regard.

Well, rather than allow their feelings to remain unproven, the Mint devs decided to come up with a speed test to see if they were correct. Guess what? They were! Windows build time was four times slower with Cinnamon compared to Metacity, while recovery time was nearly four times slower too. So yes, app-launching on Cinnamon -- as of today -- is slow comparatively. The big benefit to pinpointing a problem, however, is that it is the first step in solving it. And so, Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon will be faster as a result.

Reddit: With all the anarchy going on, I do think this could be something constructive

Monday 19th of March 2018 01:59:25 AM

This could be a way for mods to test pilot what the users of this subreddit like, after all. People should experiment a little (without downright trolling) and if it maybe survives The Purge then maybe it'll give insight of some sort? Just my two-cents.

Reddit: When someone says “learn linux” what do they mean?

Sunday 18th of March 2018 10:34:36 PM

I know very little about linux, all I have really done is install ubuntu in a VM out of curiosity. I recently got given a raspberry pi from a friend as he got a new one. I asked him what meant to do with it and his reply was “learn linux”. I didnt bother questioning him on what he meat as he already thinks he is s superior all-knowing human who knows more than anyone else. What does it mean to learn linux? Linux is a a huge family of operating systems from what I understand so how do I learn it? And what do I learn? I would like to make some use out of this raspberry pi.

Reddit: How to counteract the mods laziness for the week.

Sunday 18th of March 2018 09:24:05 PM

Hello guys, please bear with me through this:

As you can see, this subreddit is gonna be filled with crap during this week, during which useless idiots will try to make the good people lose their patience, and engage in pointless discussions.

Now, I propose a set of behaviours that should help pass the next week more or less easily:

1 Don't feed the troll: You know these people. They don't have anything to do with their life. They show their worst when they are covered by "anonymity". Don't answer them, downvote and let it go, they don't have anything to lose. Be the smart one of the situation. In one previous post I said that sometimes is "hard to swallow" (and again, no pun intended), but remember that you have nothing to demonstrate to these idiots. Be the smart one, and let them rot into their uselessness. They ENJOY see you angry, or lose you time. Do you think that this is the kind of people with whom you can discuss about something? You are wrong. 2 Ignore their threads. Please, please, don't even answer them. Not even for a joke. I am the first one that did a mistake here. Just downvote, or you will just give them what they want. 3 Don't report anything. The mods already shown that they don't give a shit. Maybe this is an "operation" to take down all the troublemakers, even though I have a hard time believing. Whatever the situation is, it won't change this fact. 4 Most people are damn stupid. Personally I learnt the hard way, but this is unfortunately true in the world. Again, be the clever one, and you will succeed. Don't put yourself at stupid people's level, that's how most pointless discussions/altercations begin.

Before answering think if what you do has a purpose. Again, you can apply the same skill even in the real world. Do you answer if a drunk guy call you an idiot? You shouldn't, because what's the point? You don't have anything to prove.

That's an amazing subreddit, let's not ruin it for some people's fault.

Are you with me?

Reddit: How to deal with "Anarchy Week"

Sunday 18th of March 2018 09:13:44 PM

The mods have decided to have no rules for the next week. Obviously there is quite a lot of spam. But there are two things you can do to deal with it.

  • Vote. Vote on every post you can. When people spam things, don't comment on it and give them the satisfaction of knowing it annoyed you, just downvote it.
  • Block spammers. /r/linux is actually quite readable for me right now because I block people who post spam.

Do not acknowledge spammers and trolls. All they want is attention. Just downvote, block, and move on.

Sunday 18th of March 2018 08:09:59 PM

Luckily, I have a partial backup of my home folder from some 3 months ago when I installed ubuntu. Gonna alias that particular command to "Hell No!" from now on. Also, do you guys think I will have any problems with booting in now? Should I reinstall ubuntu?

rm was at "/lib" when I hit ctrl-c

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Linux gives you a lot of control over network and system settings. On your desktop, Linux lets you tweak just about anything on the system. Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
