Thinking of making the leap from windows 10 to Linux

35 min 55 sec ago

Is this a hard transition? Is wine good these days for non Linux programs? What's everyone's reccomended distribution? Looking at either mint KDE or mint cinnamon

Linux CAD Suites

2 hours 38 min ago

I made the switch to Linux full-time on my laptop a month or so, after years of running virtualbox sessions. One of the biggest things I miss is Fusion 360, which is an Autodesk product. Now, while I love using that program, I'm committed to finding a FOSS alternative.

I've been using FreeCAD, which works well enough, but it has some really quirky behavior, and lacks a lot of basic features such as drawing a 2-Point Circle. Not to mention that boolean operations are often janky, as well as other part-level operations.

This is all besides the point. Is there anyone who knows of a decent 3D CAD suite for Linux? FreeCAD needs polishing, Draftsight is 2D only, and that's really all I've got so far.

EDIT: I'm not a professional user, just a hobbyist. I do have Inventor on my windows workstation at home, but that's a pain if all I want to do is 3D print a simple part.

Watching sports via script

3 hours 24 min ago

I used to use small scripts for watching sports ( and some TV ). They curled the signal in and got it to a player. But the community, where i got the scripts from, is dead. Does anybody has a hint, where to get such scripts from, if they exist ?

offlineimap ending before sync is complete

6 hours 29 min ago

I'm not entirely sure why my configuration ends without errors before the sync is complete. I have two gmail accounts, one has managed to sync without problems, the other one is somehow stopping after few tens of messages. Not only that, but if I restart the process it looks like it is downloading the same messages over and over again.

Any idea?

Does anyone know of a way to...

Does anyone know of a way to have a terminal sync with the terminal. Like while I navigate through the file system in the terminal there is a file manager staying open with it?

Well, congrats little boys, looks like I've finally been 'banned'. Heh.

Thu, 01/17/2019 - 22:57

Well, of course not officially (more quasi, sneaky shadow?) as I'm able to make this post but it's not like I'll ever know when my comments are deleted and apparently they're being deleted by mods on a whim; Thus, I am constructively banned.

Maybe you are being censored too? I know I certainly am.

I received a call from a real life friend earlier who knows me and knows I don't delete unless cleaning up my history in batches on Sundays, otherwise I would have never known my comment had been removed.

And for what? I dunno. As far as I know drinking is allowed while using reddit, the thread is full of people cussing and their comments haven't been removed. In fact the only thing that sets me apart from..apart fro.....oh I get it now...set apart...apart....diferent...diversity. Yeah, well, enjoy your little enclave...your 'safe space' here on reddit. Following are imgur shots of 1) The thread in my desktop and my unlogged in phone (makes me wonder how many of my other comments have been removed unbeknown to me) 2)My message inbox showing no attempt to inform me by mods (wow...that level of cowardice is even surprising to me) 3)The original comment(because it still shows up for me...shady!)

I mean, I can still post etc. but I guess it has to be only content that is not diverse from the circle jerk here. Like most of the world, not interested. For the few of you who see this before it's deleted and don't have overt control issues, so long and thanks for all the fish :)

Is LFCS good prep cert to get read to eventually pursue my RCHSA?

Thu, 01/17/2019 - 22:43

I have a discounted voucher to get my LFCS. From what I understand, CENTOS is pretty much the same as Red Hat, and I like that it's a hands-on exam. One of my leads at my former job said to go LPIC, but even though LFCS seems less popular (I know certs aren't everything), going through a manual test has to be better prep when it comes time for interviews. I've heard that the RHCSA is very tough, and wasn't sure if I should just study for that, or do Linux Foundation first to prep.

Cool things to do with Terminal

Thu, 01/17/2019 - 20:42

Hello all, I wanted first thank everyone for the awesome community! Often times in communities like this answers aren’t given, I’ve been surprised how awesome the Linux community is especially here in this sub.

Being new to Linux and coming from a windows world yet having Cisco experience I don’t know why it took so long to move to Linux - but I love it.

Being new are there any cool tips, tricks or just neat things to do in the Terminal? I see a lot of terminal going on in /r/Unixporn so thought I might ask what you seasoned linux users love :-)

Gtk Demo scripts update

Thu, 01/17/2019 - 17:08

The most recent version of the Gtk Demos has the following changes from the original version:

  1. Added demo4 which is a menu of the other demos.

  1. New syntax for the list of Gtk function prototypes in demostuff.

  1. Loading the Gtk shared object file by name only, without specifying the path, but using SBCL's built-in path logic, to be compatible with more Linux distros.

Note that the demos are scripts and don't need to be compiled. To run them on your Linux, do the following:

chmod +x demo[1-4]


Old discussions of the demos:
