You are lost, you use ventoy on a seperate usb. Then you can install whatever distro on your portable ssd. You can install multiple as long as your partition things well. It's not that difficult. You could have asked here instead of going on a rollercoaster of weird self-imposed problems.

I've been trying for a while, looking up other manifests helped me but I'm still lost on a few things. Maybe we could help each other. I am the creator of open-tv.

I start KDE with startx on tumbleweed, everything works except that kwallet asks for my password when I launch discord or other apps. I installed pam_kwallet and made sure that my user password is identical to my kwallet password. Anyone knows how I could fix this?

My xinitrc seems to be sourced from /usr/libexec/xinit/xinitrc by default

I stumbled on the repo today and I noticed it was archived. Will the fork be abandoned?

EDIT: Thanks guys, I moved to Tubular.

You should try Ico (lemmy.world)
submitted 2 months ago* (last edited 2 months ago) by Fredol@lemmy.world to c/patientgamers@sh.itjust.works

Ico is lesser known/underrated because it's the spitirual "prequel" to shadow of the colossus. The game first released on PS2, but you can play it on PS3 from The Ico & Shadow of the Colossus Collection which is a HD version of both games on a single disc.

I played the PS3 version on RPSC3 and it worked flawlessly except for a few crashes.

The game is an experience unlike any other. Sometimes we say about some games "they don't hold your hand", like the Souls game. Well, this game will never give you a single hint, it's that mantra pushed to the extreme. It's best described as Portal without the portals. It makes the experience very immersive since there are no HUD elements, no voice telling you to do anything. It's essentially a puzzle game, but it won't feel like a puzzle game, it will feel like an adventure you are solely responsible for and for which the end result will be 100% your achievement; It's not a multiple endings game, but it's such a well designed game that the player will feel proud of the journey.

I can't say much more without spoiling, all I can say is please give this game a shot, it will change your perspective on games as a whole.

My rating, 10/10. There are 0 flaws with this game, not a single con I can nitpick about. There's barely any dialogue but it can easily make you quite emotional.

I decided to try this game, almost 4 years after the PC release and 5 years after the PS release. To me it felt like this game got released a year ago, truly a patient gamer.

This game is all about the story so I'll avoid mentioning too many details about it in case one of you sees this and actually wants to try it.

The first mission is amazingly crafted and captivates your attention, it serves as a great and concise tutorial that you may not even notice that it's a bit of a tutorial. Did a tutorial ever make you feel like a total badass? This one will. After that mission, you get into the real story's intro.

The game's intro is a classic playstation exclusive intro, in the sense that it's a bit of a slug. At least, I can say it really introduces well the player to the world of Detroit. It presents many of the themes and philosophical dilemmas that you will have to deal with in the game without shoving them too much down your throat. So if you start to feel bored during the intro, stick around cause it does get way better.

A bit on the story without spoiling anything; you basically get to play 3 different android characters with unique stories and background. Not only your decisions, but also the way you choose to interact with other characters have quite a dramatic impact on the story. There's not 1000 endings, don't get me wrong, but your playthrough will actually feel like YOUR playthrough. It's truly surprising how much I got attached to the characters and the story I crafted through my choices. The game's writing may feel a bit cheesy at times, but it's the good kind.

I don't usually play these kind of game-movies and I have no idea if they typically are that good, but I can tell you this one's a gem. I completed this 8-12h game (approx) in a single day, non-stop cause I got so hooked and then proceeded to complete the game a second time 3 days later. And as I'm writing this, it tempts me into a 3rd playthrough.

I played on PC, the port's alright. To have more than 60 fps you have to edit the config which is a bit unfortunate, but expected from a sony exclusive. It performs well and I think it only crashed twice. Since this game saves every 5 seconds, it's not too bad. The graphics look a bit dated since it was made for PS4.

Rating? 9/10. Since I praised this game most of the reviews, I'll give a concise list of the cons:

  • Very sluggish (intentionally slow story pacing) in two parts of the game. It reduces replayability because you'll think "oh fuck I'll have to do this shit again"
  • Have to edit config files on PC
  • QTEs can be quite annoying at times, and failing some QTEs will have dramatic consequences.

If you like a good story, GO PLAY THIS NOW. You won't regret it.

Multiple mistakes:

  1. You went with a very old distro, Ubuntu 22.04 is almost 2 years old. You could pick a non-lts ubuntu instead. Thankfully you ended up picking Fedora.

  2. A single google search could've given you better alternatives to FreeRDP like Remmina. You can always ask people stuff like this on Lemmy or elsewhere ("what's the best rdp client on linux?") rather than waiting till you run out of patience.

  3. You shouldn't need to compile software by yourself, you can use flatpak to install newer versions of software and flathub even has a beta repo you can add for even newer software.

It's not against you, we all learn from mistakes. Just try to be more social about your linux journey if you don't want to struggle

Tldr: you made the classic mistake of going head first into this without a friend to help you or at least documenting yourself properly on the current state of Linux desktops through various medias like Youtube. It doesn't help that you suffered from the ol' "I'm a windows expert so this should be similar/easy and if it fails it's not my fault"

It can be done, but the goal of this app was to reproduce the classic top caption memes in a single command. I might add more features like the one you're talking about.

I made this as a challenge to learn golang. If you ever wanted to make memes without having to use those pesky GUI tools, there you go! The only dependency is lmageMagick and the windows version comes batteries-included.

Discord and matrix are not searchable, they shouldn't be used at all

Wayland didn't break everything, but Nvidia 545 certainly did

With the plethora of great games getting released every month on PC, it's very hard to feel any excitment for a game that will probably release in 2027 on PC. It doesn't help that GTA Online left a sour taste, and even the single player story was only great for the first few hours then you just start doing heists for the fbi for the rest of the game. Considering we're only getting a cinematic trailer after all this wait, I'm expecting already multiple delays or cyberpunk-level of disaster at launch

I just upgraded my nvidia driver and kernel on tumbleweed and now my main monitor can't go to 240hz without losing input. Am I the only one? It works fine on 60 and could work perfectly on 240hz before the update

I don't know what it is with this display, but I've never experienced something like this despite owning multiple amoled and oled phones.

The whites are blindingly white even at low brightness. On a more balanced image, the displays seems not bright enough even at max. Since text is often white, it hurts to read text. And outside, the display is barely readable.

Am I the only one having difficulty with this display? I used to have an iPhone 13 Pro Max and a Note9 before this phone, both running always at full brightness too. Now I don't venture above 20% indoors.

Don't take me wrong, there's some truth to this. But the way it's written screams "Windows users are drones because of evil Microsoft". That level of bias is not really constructive. There are more reasonable/rational ways to expand upon this phenemonon that doesn't end up in a circlejerk. Since it's quite a big wall of text, I will give one example.

The author makes a broad generalization that, because of Windows' mystification of its inner workings, Windows users can't even imagine the thought of becoming a programmer. And well, I know plenty of programmers that to this day have not even touched anything but Windows. Some of them never use the terminal, but some are quite good at it.

[-] Fredol@lemmy.world 69 points 6 months ago

This is a really childish and badly formulated take on Windows Users. Basically, linux circlejerk.

My Logitech G Pro wireless does not work unless replugged at every boot. Is there any workaround/fix? Or is it a persistent bug? I've been experiencing this across multiple distros and wireless mice

EDIT: Adding usbcore.autosuspend=-1 to my kernel boot parameters seems to fix the problem. Thanks everyone!

I've been struggling to find a solution for the last 30m. I tried the following

  • Install gnome-settings-daemon
  • Install xdg-desktop-portal-gnome

I already have the kde and gtk portals installed (it comes by default). I am using OpenSuse Tumbleweed. Those apps are running under flatpak

EDIT: It was a bug in XDG Portals and it was fixed

Chrome actually protected your sorry ass. Why the fuck are you not running Ublock origin?

[-] Fredol@lemmy.world 41 points 9 months ago

You want an honest answer? Fedora was never that great to begin with and went down quite a bit in quality since the whole patent debacle. I had to switch distros when Mesa was constantly breaking. Also, untested kernel updates would remove HDMI audio (and despite a fix being available they waited a crazy long time to push it) among many other things

Tumbleweed is just plain better.
