Fedora, Arch, or EndeavourOS?
  • I just switched from Arch to Endeavour to Fedora! My 2 cents:

    • Arch is like a barebones Lego box without instructions, only a set of pictures. Sure, you get a paper telling you how to ensamble a basic OS, but what to do of it is up to you. For example, you might want a firewall there, right? or maybe a systemd timer to trim your ssd? IDK, you can guess it on your own. The pieces are there, it's up to you to decide what to use.
    • Endeavour is like that same Lego box where someone handled you the manual from another themed box. If you installed Arch on your own, and felt like you might've missed something, or something feels off, EndeavourOS just gives you the ensambled set for you to play with. The problem? No problem, really. It feels like a greatly configured Arch installation.
    • Fedora feels like a themed box. You don't have whole lot of bricks like that other unthemed box (AUR), but damn, everything just works and it works great. Only caveat is that non free stuff (drivers, codecs, etc) require that you input some commands (but really, every linux distro requires this still). So far, my experience is between "wow, I didn't know you could do/have this! Must've missed it in the arch wiki" and "damn, there's no easy way to install X in Fedora? I miss the AUR :("
  • Discord is on a quest to become a better messaging app
  • Honest question: is there a centralized alternative? Like “here, install this or use this SaaS, it enables your community to chat, discuss in forums, and allows you to manage a FAQ/KB from the content from the chat and forums”

    EDIT: don’t get why the downvotes. It’s a question, not a statement.

  • (The Dragon's Tomb) PAX Unplugged 2023 Convention Coverage

    EA opens up more patents for increasing Accessibility in gaming
  • Exactly! They tried to patent it, but it didn’t meet the requirements (

    Notice how they tried to patent it “to prevent companies from making unlicensed, low-quality versions of the vaccine. There is no sign that the foundation intended to profit from a patent on the polio vaccine.”

    EDIT: and on the other hand, you get things like insulin, where the patent was sold for $1 (

  • Plasma 6 (Wayland) is laggy on my laptop running on 6th gen i5
  • I have a big gaming desktop and at first it felt kinda slow, but then I found out it was happening because of the previous plasma 5 config messing with things, and the variable refresh rate affecting the mouse cursor movement.

  • [SOLVED] Brave Browser not launching in LXQT in Debian 12
  • My brother in Christ, installing a .deb is downloading the .deb directly, as you would when downloading discord from, and you use dpkg to install it (apt uses dpkg to install the deb file).

    You saying “the deb file” is not the same as “using the official repo”, as dependencies might not have been installed by only using the .deb file.

    Make sense?

  • [SOLVED] Brave Browser not launching in LXQT in Debian 12
  • What .deb file? Their page says to add a repo and use apt:

    sudo apt install curl
    sudo curl -fsSLo /usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg
    echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/brave-browser-archive-keyring.gpg] stable main"|sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/brave-browser-release.list
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install brave-browser
  • With only 91 days left before launch, today we are releasing the 1st Beta of Plasma 6.
  • Not just yet! For now only the desktop has HDR gamma and color settings, don’t expect more than that until more patches arrive.

    And I understand that, at least in this first release, the objective is to have gaming hdr, not movies nor images…

  • Returning to the hobby after 4 years

    My son came into my life 4 years ago, and my daughter arrived 2 years after that. It’s been wonderful having them in my life, and I’m really happy!

    But I left some things aside when they arrived, they take your life by storm and it’s difficult to focus on the things you used to do before them. One of these things is board games.

    I used to play with friends like once a month, and built my collection around that group. Some games were meant to be played with my wife, and occasionally with her friends too.

    Now I want to start playing again, and I’m thinking of two paths that may not be exclusive.

    1. Play with friends really late at night when my kids finally get a full night of uninterrupted sleep (not yet)
    2. Play with my kids. Haba games are well received here (my first orchid was a success), and these holidays we’re stacking up with like 4 more games (I really hope they like them).

    So yeah, this is not much of a question but just wanted to share that I still like this hobby after 4 years, and hope to keep sharing it with friends and family 🙂


    Petition to redesign some icons

    I think Dolphin and Discover share the "Blue square" base design, while Settings and Konsole share the "Black square" one... I usually misclick these app icons because of this.

    NOTE: I know Dolphin sticks to whatever the Accent color is set to. But the default color is that shade of blue, similar to Discover.

    Would it be possible to change some of these icons? I'm not a designer nor have artistic skills to do so, unfortunately.

    Some ideas:

    • Maybe set Discover to be a paper bag or another shopping icon
    • Settings could be a gear (wink wink)
    • Global settings and System settings share the same icon unfortunately. Maybe these could be different :)

    fingerprint or bluetooth auth?

    I use multiple systems, and all seem to have some kind of way to ease the use of password prompts:

    On MacOS you can use the fingerprint reader, or the Apple Watch to authorize operations (yep, even sudo)

    On Windows, Windows hello allows you to authorize using a fingerprint reader or specific camera setup

    Fingerprint readers are not as widely supported in Linux as in Windows because of vendor limitations (they just don’t care).

    Is there any other recommended way to authorize operations on a desktop computer using something similar to the other systems? (Fingerprint readers, Bluetooth auth, etc)

    Linux 101 stuff. Questions are encouraged, noobs are welcome! Perroboc

    Where are the GPU drivers?

    Ex windows user here. I really like my Linux installation, but I don’t know where the drivers are at, or if I should worry about it.

    It feels great to have one less thing to worry about (I use an AMD GPU), but GPU drivers in Windows seem to have their own release cycle, fixing game compatibility and bugs, while in Linux it also feels like we have to wait for a next kernel release to get that fix.

    Or maybe it’s mesa? I don’t really understand that.

    TL;DR: where are the open source drivers at? Mesa or the kernel? And also, is the release cycle the same or close to Windows counterpart? Or it just doesn’t matter?


    My new system: Ryzen 7950X, RX 7900XTX, 64gb RAM, 2x2tb 980 pro, 1x1tb 990 pro

    And I installed Linux. And it’s awesome.

    EDIT: yes, the GPU was a bit tilted. Fixed it now!


    What game has a great story and is worth the time investment?

    I recently finished Rise of the Tomb Raider and Final Fantasy XVI, and I’m hesitant what I should play next (PC or PS5).

    With FF I enjoyed the game and the story was all I expected from it, and I’m really looking forward to the DLC.

    With Tomb Raider… damn that game is all over the place. The story is predictable, and also stupid. “Why did you rush in there? Without weapons? Against an army?”, and other similar thoughts kept running through my head. I don’t feel inclined to play Shadow of the tomb Raider (the sequel).

    I have a backlog of too many games, and lately it takes a lot of effort to start because I don’t know if it’s worth the time investment. I love games with good stories, and playing a game that puts the lore and story in the background feels like a waste of time.

    Sure, I could get started on Baldurs Gate 3, I’ve heard great things. But is the story great? Will I be able to say “oh that chapter/fight/act is awesome!” To other people looking for game experiences?

    Experiences like Escaping from the ship in Super Metroid, helping that king in Witcher 3, fighting Psycho Mantis in MGS, fighting Titan in FFXVI, killing the first colossus, escaping from darth Vader, that first Mario odyssey stage, beating the first boss in Bloodborne, playing “Brothers” for the first time and getting to the ending… all great experiences with awesome stories to tell

    TL;DR: what am I missing?
