Reddit: Help with gpu drivers

Saturday 4th of February 2017 04:34:11 AM

I have a Asus x550vx-mh71 running ubuntu 16.10.

If I run with the nvidia driver I get stuck in a loop and can't log on. If I use the generic nvidia driver the system works but the graphics are choppy and slow.

Far as I can tell the kernel doesn't see the intel video chipset so that's not an option in additional drivers.

Does anyone have a suggestion about getting the intel gpu detected?

LXer: A comprehensive guide to taking screenshots in Linux using gnome-screenshot

Saturday 4th of February 2017 03:58:01 AM
There are several screenshot taking tools available in the market but most of them are GUI based. If you spend time working on the Linux command line, and are looking for a good, feature-rich command line-based screen grabbing tool, you may want to try out gnome-screenshot. In this tutorial, I will explain this utility using easy to understand examples.

Reddit: not working as expected? Or do I need something else?

Saturday 4th of February 2017 02:40:02 AM

I have an application called reflector that updates pacman's mirror list for Arch Linux. I have it set to run automatically weekly via a service provided as an example in the Arch Wiki. However, I've noticed that this service has failed in all instances.

It turns out that journactl reported that it could not connect to the internet every time the service was initiated. This is certainly because networkmanager doesn't connect to the internet fast enough (I often find myself having Firefox autostarted on login with tabs that fail to load because the system is still trying to connect to the internet). So I did some reading and it seems like I needed to make is so that the service starts after I have connected to the internet. For some reason it's still not working (it still says it's unable to retrieve the mirrors because it failed to establish a connection). Below is my service and a timer that runs it weekly.


[Unit] Description=Pacman mirrorlist update [Service] Type=oneshot ExecStart=/usr/bin/reflector --protocol https --latest 20 --fastest 20 --sort score --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

and reflector.timer:

[Unit] Description=Run reflector weekly [Timer] OnCalendar=weekly RandomizedDelaySec=12h Persistent=true [Install]

And help is much appreciated. I've been having this issue for so long and it's frustrating after trying so many times.

LXer: 10 Best Linux Task Managers

Saturday 4th of February 2017 02:32:14 AM
One of the most important things for Linux users is the task management, because all operating systems have mistakes, and Linux isn’t the exception yet. Sometimes, I have troubles with specific applications that collapse and the processes do not stop, it’s very weird, but sometimes it happens. So I use Linux task manager, find the process and finally, I kill it.

Reddit: Trying to start on linux.

Saturday 4th of February 2017 01:53:33 AM

OK so I'm working at a web hosting company that is solely Linux based, I've learned a few things, like how to read most of any specific man pages, how to use the terminal, some of the root folders and log locations in Linux, and some bin dirs as well as a small amount of SSH commands, as well as the difference between SSH, terminal, and ftp and a bunch of other things, but mostly centered around newbie performance tips, such as using top to isolate the process I'd, and then going into proc/process-id/maps to possibly determine what it does and if it should be killed. (Process-id is a substitute for random process numbers)

The catch is that I've kinda hit a wall and I'd like to not go through it or above it, but to tear it down. So far I've been asking questions, and I've bought a few books, like on the humble bundle from a coupe months ago. I bought a physical copy of the Linux Bible eighth edition , and a complete introduction of the Linux command line and I'll be reading those in my offtime at work. Does anyone have any advice on how I'd be able to tear down that wall, given the above information?

Thank you for your time.

Reddit: Should I switch to Linux?

Saturday 4th of February 2017 12:52:23 AM

Hey guys I was on r/linux a while ago and asked what would be a good distro for someone new like me. I still haven't chosen yet because I was planning to put it on my laptop but something inside the laptop is stopping it. I'm planning to put linux on my gaming pc. What would be a good distro for users that play games. Also I know that not all games will run on linux and there are some games that I play on windows that run on linux. I play mainly H1Z1, DOOM, Rocket League, and other titles I know that won't run on linux. Would it be worth to transfer to linux or should I just stay on windows until the time comes. I'm interested in Linux and theres alot of Distros to choose from but I want to be able to play my games without having to worry or sweat about.

  • AsteroidOS 1.0 Alpha on the Asus Zenwatch 3
    In a previous article, I published a small userspace image and Linux kernel for the Zenwatch 3 that enables root access with SSH over USB on the watch. By now, I reached my initial goal to get AsteroidOS, the alternative Android Wear operating system, running on the Zenwatch 3. Similar to SailfishOS and Ubuntu Touch, AsteroidOS uses the original Android kernel - a patched Linux kernel - with a GNU/Linux userspace that, in turn, also uses some of the original, closed-source Android libraries to access certain hardware like the GPU. As the Android libraries expect a different software ecosystem, e.g., a different C library called bionic, we cannot simply call the Android libraries from within a common GNU/Linux application. Instead, we need an additional software layer that translates between the Android and the common GNU/Linux world. This layer is called libhybris.
  • How Ironic: Harman Kardon’s Microsoft Cortana Speaker Is Powered by Linux
    Harman Kardon, the company recently acquired by Samsung, has developed its very own Cortana speaker, which is very similar to the Amazon Echo but featuring Microsoft’s famous digital assistant. And since Cortana is the key feature of this little device, it only makes sense for Harman Kardon to turn to Windows 10 to power the device. And yet, it looks like the so-called Harman Kardon is actually running Linux.
