"Do you want to continue? [Y/n]"

Tue, 2018-06-19 15:37

This thing has been bugging me for years now, why is the (Y) in capital and the (N) is small? I know it's just nitpicking but just wondering, does it have a purpose? Or it's a mistake that no one bothered to fix?

Lineage OS

Tue, 2018-06-19 14:58

So, a couple questions:

How many of you have tried Lineage OS? Does it work well? Can you still call/text? How does it interface with your cell service provider?

Lastly, I couldn't find a specific list of devices supported. Does anyone have a link?

Dual Boot Win10/Ubuntu SSD/HDD

Tue, 2018-06-19 13:09

New to Linux. Is there a guide for the various options on this? r/buildapc was no help.

My goal is to share all files on my 1TB HDD except for the OSs themselves, which will be on the SSD (250GB). I have heard it is slightly better and easier to put /home on the SSD with symlinks to the HDD rather than installing /home directly to the HDD. This is my first time provisioning a HD, all I have is the "theory", so any advice is appreciated! (I am already aware I should install Windows before Linux)

Streaming games from Windows to Linux without Steam

Tue, 2018-06-19 09:36

Up until now, I have been using dual-boot or VMs whenever possible. However, I do my work in Linux 99+% of the time, making this an annoying hassle. So I am now looking into streaming games. I anyway want to build a new workstation rig soon, so I could convert this one to a Windows-only PC that runs headless most of the time and is there almost exclusively for gaming.

The thing is, I have many Windows games that are not on Steam. Old CD rips and games I got from . So how would I stream these? Is RDP fast enough for this? Should I get something like Citrix?

Remember the mobile/desktop unification fad?

Tue, 2018-06-19 08:15

Has there been any development on this front? Anyone know of any cool projects out there? I'd love to have my Pixel running something that could dock to a desktop OS.

How do I install Linux on my laptop

Tue, 2018-06-19 06:02

I’m not sure if this is the best place to post this but when I upgraded to windows 10, my laptop became extremely slow. I heard that Linux is lightweight and I wish to install it on my laptop but I don’t know what I am doing and I don’t want to do something that might mess my computer even more. I use it mostly for playing games while on road trips. Thanks for your help

Considering switching from KDE Neon to Fedora

Tue, 2018-06-19 05:12

So I was running Debian Stretch, and got tired of some of the ways that XFCE handled wine and a few other things so I switched it up to run Neon. I was able to install an application that had given me dependency hell on Debian with next to no issues on Neon (It's based on Ubuntu.)

Now I'm pondering a switch to Fedora 28 running LXQT. I have 16 GB of ram in my laptop so ram isn't really an issue. I'm just debating if I'm crazy for switching when yum/dnf is part of the reason I'm considering it. I'm installing F28 in a VM on my Proxmox host as we speak to get a feel for it before I commit the laptop to it...
