Linuxbrew is using almost no CPU

Reddit - Sun, 2018-03-11 19:18

Okay, I know this sounds weird. I am using linuxbrew to mongodb, and it is giving me grief to say the least. I started with the "you-can't-run-as-root" runaround (which I disagree with; I usually operate as root). I then created a new, non-root user to continue. Started installing, but because I can't run as root, nice (a tool to set process priority) failed with insufficient permissions (must be run as root). Because of this, the brew, make, etc. processes are using so little CPU that it shows up as 0.0%. How do I solve this? The non-root idiocy is giving me grief. Please, brew, let people who do know what they're doing run as root... in the mean time, any help fixing this issue would be much appreciated.

What’s New in KaOS 2018.01

LXer - Sun, 2018-03-11 17:52
KaOS 2018.01 is the latest release of KDE-focused Linux distro, KaoS Linux. This release features latest packages for the Plasma Desktop, includes Frameworks 5.42.0, Plasma 5.11.5, KDE Applications 17.12.1. All built on Qt 5.10.0. Also ships ships with an alternative desktop enviornment to KDE Plasma, called Liquidshell, which is a lightweight environment that’s still in development at the moment of writing.

Why is it still a pain to install applications locally without root permissions?

Reddit - Sun, 2018-03-11 17:12

It doesn't make any sense to me that you're practically required to have root privileges to install any application using your system's package manager---after all, most applications don't require any root privilege to run and you can manually create your local application repository if you really need to.

So why does it seem that most distros and tools (i.e. GNOME Software, KDE's Discover) don't seem to care about giving the user an option to install regular applications locally, making it more convenient---in the best case---or even possible at all---in the worst case---for users to install applications?

Is it a deliberate decision because distro devs somehow don't think allowing $ apt install firefox is a good idea? Or is there simply a lack or interest?

Old 2008 laptop, Manjaro vs Chakra vs Neon vs Mint vs Solus vs Fedora vs Zorin vs Kubuntu

Reddit - Sun, 2018-03-11 17:04

The laptop is an old Vaio, it has 2 gigs of ram, some old intel core 2 duo stuck at 1.8 Ghz.

I would prefer a good looking OS for my mom to use long-term and me in the short term as my windows 10 machine was soaked. Now windows 7 runs ok but it seems modern browsers and video streaming are too much for this 10 year old machine. What would you guys recommend? I do loads of reading and studying so I need ram for a minimum of 10 tabs open+ pdfs. My mom uses FB, so I don't really think that's an issue.

Now I'm gonna be frank, Mint looks really bad to me as well as as most Ubuntu distros.

If you think you know a better distro for the job I'm definitely open for suggestions.

    Last year, I announced here that Debian 9 “Stretch” included the latest version of webkitgtk (Debian’s package is named webkit2gtk). At the time, I hoped that Debian 9 would get periodic security and bugfix updates. Nine months later, let’s see how we’ve been doing.

Zim and onenote alternative needed for linux

Reddit - Sun, 2018-03-11 13:46

This may not be the appropriate forum. But I am gonna say it anyway. I am frustrated with the lack of decent cross platform note taking applications. I am thinking of contributing to an open source project or better creating my own project. I use Google Keep, simplenote, Onenote, Zim wiki, Turtl for notes. The problem is that not even one of the above applications fits my purpose completely. OneNote and zim come very close.

Zim - awesome desktop note taking application. I use it heavily. But no markdown support, no android client. No built in sync.

OneNote - has sync and mobile clients. But no Linux desktop app, closed format

SimpleNote - currently my solution for cross platform notes. But no notebook support. Tags aren't just enough.

Basically I am looking for a zim wiki with android and markdown support, that is cross platform and syncs instanteous like SimpleNote. Unlike Onenote, it should store the data in open human readable format and it should be open source.

Could you suggest me some software project that fits my requirement, So that I can contribute to it...?

Is Slackware dead? Should I use Arch?

Reddit - Sun, 2018-03-11 12:23

I want to learn more about Linux and how it works, so I am thinking about trying a distribution that teaches me that sort of things. Would you recommend me Slackware? Right now I'm using Antergos, should I move to arch? Does Slackware has something like the AUR?
