Easy way to manage package installations when swapping through different distributions regularly?

Mon, 2018-05-07 13:06

So my current setup for work is to use Ubuntu Server + ubuntu-desktop installed via a virtualbox VM (yay forced Windows 10 company machines!)

Anyway, this is managed via a combination of packer + vagrant + chef ... But I could only ever get Ubuntu Server working this way ... never any other desktops

So 18.04 LTS has been making quite a bit of noise, so I wanted to try something new. Given my current setup, what's the easiest way that I can port most of my package installs onto any new distro (that supports apt)?

Best I can come up with is to install chef and then clone this repo with and run chef_solo with whatever I need? Pretty sure that there's other ways of doing this too?

Require help for compton config

Mon, 2018-05-07 12:47

Hello, I've been using compton for i3wm for some time in linux mint. But today I went back to manjaro and in manjaro, the line

backend = "glx";

makes the terminal and notification windows red and weird. But if I comment it out then everything works fine. The transparent windows are perfect. Could you tell me why is that it worked in linux mint but not in manjaro?

Also, glx backend smoothes screen tearing in videos and browser. Commenting this out does present some tearing but not as much as what tearing exists if compton is disabled. So, I can live with a little tearing.

Here is the link to my full compton config file
