Pretty much everyone here uses Linux on /g/ boards, so ima ask here...

I used Fedora GNOME for a while on my main PC, but now I'll be switching to this Macbook Air early-2014 I got from a relative (hasn't been used like ever). I installed Fedora KDE on it, but I just learned there are no FaceTime HD camera drivers for Fedora. I don't wanna lose contact with my FBI man, so I wanna switch.

If I listed some preferences, could you help me find an optimal and similar distro? Ty in advance!

- I have intermediate knowledge on Linux overall, and have used several other distros in the past.
- Will use it as my main machine for university stuff, browsing and playing some low-spec games.
- Specs are decent, but not excellent. So nothing resource-heavy please. GNOME3 bad.
- Preferably nothing bleeding-edge cuz that'll be my main desktop. So, no Arch.
- I dislike Manjaro. Also no Ubuntu because cool kids dont use Ubuntu!

pic was to get your attention obviously

I settled on Mint.

Started with Ubuntu then quit it after the travesty of Gnome3 before moving on to Debian, Fedora, Arch and even went down the BSD road (free and open). Nothing felt right until I picked up a magazine with a LiveCD of Mint and have been hooked ever since. I should probably mention I was dual booting with XP all this time so it wasn't like I was lacking a functional desktop; except for that time Arch decided to install itself over my windows partition. Even today I dual boot with Win10 but it's mostly relegated to gaming and a few oddities.

And FYI, this month they released a new LTS so you're good until 2023 if you hop on now.

But as always, try a LiveCD first to get a feel for things.

I can't remember the last time I used Linux with a GUI. An ex-boss once insisted on installing GUIs on servers, I stuck with CLI. Ex-boss is now a member of the long term unemployed segment of the population.

Openoffice sucks.

Honestly, it used to be simple to get a cracked version of MS Office, but I'm having trouble finding a version that actually WORKS / IS AUTHENTICATED CONSISTENTLY, now. Auto KMS tools seem to have no effect.

Suggestions? What do you use?

Also, LibreOffice exists for Windows as well (and Mac), you don't need to trash your entire system on a fools errand just to get a goddamn word processor.

What the other guy said. The torrent will tell you. Mystery solved. Pretty basic. lol I think all types of people should be included amongst people in the world. I don't think people who torrent or don't torrent are beyond interaction in the human group. What makes you want to torrent? What incites that interest in you? I'd like to speak to you about it. I like conversation. There is no stranger interest. That's what's going on completely, in here. lol Based.

Is web browsing in Slackware meant to be this slow? Anonymous 19/07/08(Mon)04:47 No. 22677 ID: 4f8972 [Reply]

Just installed Slackware, using b43 wireless drivers because broadcom's wl drivers need firmware files I can't seem to find anywhere on the face of the net. BCM4311 if that's of any help.

I've tried browsing on firefox, tor and seamonkey. All of them are slow as shit and it takes like 20 seconds or more to load a single image without enlarging it on any imageboard site. I can't load an imgur album under 5 minutes. This laptop has 4Gb of RAM. 4Gb shouldn't be this slow. It has to be software related.

Any idea why my web browsers are all seemingly cosplaying as netscape navigator?

Why are you using ipv6 on your home network? Also sounds like your router config was bad, not your card. But interesting if it worked on M$ and not Linux.

If you have an internet connection and you're sending unencrypted data out of it, Google doesn't have to work for the TLAs.

Your ISP's backbone is split and shoveled into TLA datacenters.

IPv6 was enabled by default and every other device on the network was fine. The fact that windows was working fine (dual booting) is what inspired me to start playing with seemingly random settings. I have no clue as to why the DNS change fixed it but gift horses and all.

Hey /halp/, been long since I been here. Currently running a Lenovo Windows 7 laptop and my screen is fucked up. How do I fix this?

Anonymous 16/01/06(Wed)04:55 No. 22010 ID: 2df8ca

Plug into an external monitor.
Video good = Screen or cable is bad.
No Video = GPU or Mobo is bad.
Cable is the cheapest to replace but from my experience if you see anything on the screen then the cable is good.
Screens run about $40ish and aren't "too" hard to replace if you don't know what you're doing.
See if that model has a YouTube disassembly video to help.

I'd bet your screen is broken. ~$40 fix. EZPZ

Guessing that I was right. Did think it was the screen that was the issue, lucky I kept my Windows XP monitor. Thanks Anon.

Real hackers are corky and hard to find but if you’re lucky to find one you must be cautious in your relation with them. They will get almost anything done, you just have to not waste their time and yours. My testimony is about Royalblade, data scientist and revolutionary hacker who fix my score within 3 weeks. I’m currently sitting at 822 guys, after so many years of struggling to build my score. I met with a testimonial on YouTube which was a lot of people talking about this guy.

It's not a virus (if they screw up they tend to double tap the keys). I've seen this before, normally it's when someone gets a new board and they're not used to it, they're still using their old muscle memory and not fully lifting off the keys.

Either that or you've jizzed on it and the keys aren't raising properly.

Slow your typing, if it persists. Disassemble and clean the thing. If the problem still persists get a new board.

System administrator wallpaper bypass Anonymous 18/11/21(Wed)10:34 No. 22614 ID: efb18f [Reply]

Hey /halp/, 7ch isn't blocked at my university, so I thought I'd ask if anybody here knows how to change a wallpaper when the system administrator blocks desktop personalisation. I'll actually provide some troubleshooting information as well, rather than being a total pain.
OS is Windows 10 Education Edition.
#1 - Browsers can't override it; IE11 doesn't even have "Set as desktop background" as a selectable option.
#2 - File Explorer's "Set as desktop background" is selectable but does nothing.
#3 - Windows personalisation is restricted on desktop background and screensaver tabs, managed by system administator.
#4 - There isn't any generic wallpaper.png or etc. to swap out in Pictures.
#5 - Can't edit or access the registry to change the wallpaper key in HKCU.

No idea why they do this stuff, I'm only going to waste my time to undermine this tbqh. They've only just implemented this pointless policy.
Also let me know if there's a more appropriate board for this question.
Thanks in advance, /halp/.

I'vd been out of the "hacking" game for quite a while, now. 95/98/ME/XP were my playgrounds.

That said, if there is already a wallpaper in use, can't you just find that file and replace it with a different picture and give it the same name? Do it from a linux USB or CD if you can't write the file from windows?

Unless the wallpaper is looked up on a server somewhere and updated on each boot or something, which I find doubtful.

I have a similar question:
I want to change the go-to-screensaver/turnoff - monitor time on my computer at work, but those options are not available (but you can change your wallpaper all you want, go figure)

Why? So I can be away from my desk longer and nobody can use the state of my monitor as an indication of how long I might have been "missing".

It's a Windows 7 machine,and they use active directory to lock everybody down.

But here's the kicker:

Usually they'll put the background in a restricted folder that normal users can't write to. At login it'll update that image with a copy from the server so any changes are only temporary.

It sounds like your workplace defined the 'prevent users from changing' setting but didn't define the value itself. They're different settings in the policy, all they have to do is enable it and populate it with their preferred value and voila, a uniform time is enforced.

95/98/SE/ME were very different creatures, it was actually a problem to limit users since by default users had full control. NT is the opposite, users normally have no control and administator features must be explicitly added. XP suffered from being long in the tooth by the time it was retired with a dizzying array of patches plugging holes while simultaneously opening additional holes.
