First: Scratch 3.0

Most used: Nix (mostly for my system configuration)

What’s wrong with asking for punctuation?

If you don’t understand what someone says, you should ask for clarification instead of making assumptions.

They’re replying to the person asking for punctuation, not the one talking about capitalism in the US.

I though only GNOME cared about having client-side decorations? Probably why any GNOME app I have has an annoying toolbar when I’m using a tiling window manager.

I started with NixOS and now I installed something called “Lix

Yeah I’m too far in to return

The ‘code’ tag here does not respect newlines,

Now there’s a newline between every single line of code

how is that fragmentation it’d be a front-end not a whole new software

Yep. I am also that person. I’m worried I’ll forget about the thing I have to do if I do literally anything else.

I use NixOS, and I’m confused. Why is a fork of Nix necessary? I’m out of the loop.

edit: currently looking at lix.systems and aux.computer for info.

So… should I just switch to Lix? Like are there any problems I should expect?

edit 2: i tried switching to it, but got an infinite recursion error in my flake.nix, and honestly i don’t feel like dealing with it right now.

the car already has metal in it, so the metal block is unnecessary

Just flush with it closed?? I know that they are splashed, but to avoid that you can literally just close the toilet.

(I don’t know if “close” is the correct verb, I cannot remember what the part of the toilet that covers the seat is called)

What? I call my computer a PC and I run Linux. My friends know I use Linux and they don’t get confused when I call my device a PC. As far as I know, “PC” refers to a personal desktop computer and does not depend on the OS.

It could just be me, but when someone says “PC” I don’t necessarily think of a Windows computer, I just think of a computer.

I play Java edition on my NixOS desktop, although I also have my laptop running the same operating system and Java edition.

I also play Bedrock edition on my Android phone sometimes, although it sucks on mobile. Very rarely, I play Minecraft on PS4.

It depends on what kind of game you like. Here are 2 video games I play on Linux:

  • Minecraft is a sandbox game with a survival aspect, where you can be as creative as you want while still having fun challenges. There are many different playing styles. It costs about $30 and requires a Microsoft account to play legally. Minecraft: Java Edition officially runs on Linux. Minecraft: Bedrock Edition (the one with console cross-play) does not run on Linux by any official methods.
  • Mindustry is a techy/industrial game, I’ve heard some say it’s like if Factorio was a tower defense. It is free and open-source (under GPLv3), requires no account.

For purchasing or acquiring games, I’d recommend Steam. It has lots of games and many of them work on Linux. There’s also Heroic Games Launcher for Epic and GOG games.

Yeah, I think I might also switch from Hyprland to something like SwayFX or Plasma 6 (with Polonium for tiling, I heard it’s gotten better).

edit: welp, the background is black, system settings crashes and i have searched and searched for what this issue could be but i’m too lazy to make an actual support ticket so i’m complaining on lemmy instead.

thankfully i made a separate git branch in my config for plasma, i’ll use hyprland until i figure out how to get plasma to work properly. then i’ll configure it, if i don’t like plasma i might go back to swayfx as i said previously in my comment.

Burn a live Linux system onto a USB (can be one with just a terminal, like Arch Linux). If you don’t have another computer to plug the USB into, this can be done on an Android phone using EtchDroid.

Then, boot from that USB and mount your main filesystem. Inside of the Live system, chroot into the mounted filesystem and run sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg which should fix the bootloader.

After that, you can just exit the USB system and return back to your OS which should boot now.

(If you don’t know how to mount a filesystem or chroot, I would explain but I forgot how to do it. If someone else could explain that would be neat)

They multiply in two by dividing in half (2x=x/0.5 as 0.5=¹/₂ which is the inverse of two)

I’m fairly sure NixOS Unstable also has it.

Linux Mint in late 2021. Now, in 2024, I am on NixOS.
