  Using git + python
Posted by: Clueless puppy - 2020-08-21, 04:37 PM - Forum: How Do I? - No Replies



So here is my problem:




I wanted a window manager switcher and found this one:  https://github.com/xircon/wm-switcher. So I proceeded to clone it, so I could use it...




... and then I realized that I have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it!




 




I'm used to windows but I am willing (and wanting)  to change. Problem is: I'm always expecting icons. If I needed to run a program I'd double-click it, even python scripts.




 




 




 




By the way, a little introduction:




I've been using windows for over 20 years, can fix the thing even if you try really hard to break it on purpose, I was very frustrated with win10 and a few days ago I finally had enough.




After doing some research I figured that Puppy Linux was ideal for me.

  CentOS vs.?
Posted by: volt - 2020-08-06, 02:29 PM - Forum: Just Starting Linux - No Replies



Hello all. I have recently bought a new computer and plan to convert the OS of my old computer to Linux. I am in the capstone for my Bachelor's in IT so I have a pretty good understanding of computers. I may look into earning certificates with RedHat so I am thinking about using CentOS as my distro. My questions are:




1. Is it a good distro for beginners? (Again, I have programming and IT education) 




2. Does anyone recommend any step-by-step (video or document) tutorials to completing the switch?




Thanks in advance for the responses. 




Patrick

  I displaced my linux partitions now boot takes a lot of time.

<span>Hello everyone, i have a problem and i need help, first of all, i moved totally to Linux (Debian10) probably like 8 months ago, i used </span><span><span>this tutorial for disk partitioning</span></span><span> and everything went perfect, then after some time i noticed that my /(root) partition was running out of space, the size of it was 30 GB, as the tutorial of disk partitioning suggested, and what i did was shrink the home partition (which is the biggest) moved it, and expand the root, all this on a Ubuntu live GParted, i have a dual-boot (be cause of uni i had to reinstall Windows) so after doing that, just in case, i ran Boot-Repair. Since then when i select Debian on Grub, it takes like between 5 - 8 mins to boot up whereas before the partition adjustment it toked like a 4th of that time, and keeps showing lots of errors like:</span>

What am i doing wrong here?

root@kali:~# ****** -t fakeuser@yahoo.com -bc /home/kali/Desktop/ -o




 




I get the same error message with the -o in either spot. I was modeling this after some tutorials where they had other flags, although not the -o, and it worked from what I could tell so I just replaced theirs with the -o.




 




Any help would be great.




Thanks in advance!!!

  Drive Question
Posted by: researchcapt - 2020-01-12, 04:38 PM - Forum: How Do I? - Replies (1)



Please forgive me, I am coming from the windows world and am sure I am using the wrong labels/terminology regarding drives.




I have a Dell laptop with a 1TB NVMe C drive and a 2TB D spin drive.  I want to install Linux Mint Cinnamon to the C drive so that I get the greatest amount of speed which means disconnecting the D drive to insure the Linux is loaded to the C drive.  Can I later connect the D drive and use that for bulk storage?...like for photos.




Thanks

Every time I install packages using the apt tool, this little error always pops up. The install goes fine, all packages work fine. But I just wanted to know if it's a legit error, and if I can fix it.

  That went nowhere, so new strategy...now CIFS mount is saying, "Host is down"
Posted by: garnern2 - 2019-05-29, 07:19 PM - Forum: Samba and NFS - Replies (1)



I've changed strategies. Since the permissions issue was obviously too complex to tackle with my limited ability to explain the problem, I decided to simply use my router's Samba hosting and plug the hard drive in there. SUCCESS! I can access the samba share using smbclient from the command line, and I can access it from Gnome in "Files."




However, when I try to use CIFS to create a permanent mount to the Samba drive using the EXACT. SAME. INFORMATION. it says, "mount error(112): Host is down."




This is the most frustrating thing I've experienced in the world of computing. I just want to share my damn external drive so that I can use Plex/Kodi/etc. to watch my decades of media on my devices in my house. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04. It shouldn't be this complicated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
