Networking / Wifi randomly goes out?
« on: October 23, 2016, 06:42:20 pm »
Hi guys, i've been noticing a thing, every single distro i tried at least once would lose wifi completely after installation.
Peppermint and Lubuntu always randomly get disconnected from wifi, and stay like that until i restart pc)
Pretty much every distro, if i watch or download too much, would eventually do that, i can kinda understand that.
Solydx/Debian derivates for some reason lost wifi on session changing, so i would need to restart pc after changing DE, for example.

But what really concerns me is the random disconnect from wifi on Pos and Lubuntu (remember, no input, no huge downloads, no watching a lot of videos). Specially since it just shows the "small internet connection" icon, rather than the one with an X.

Is this a bug, or just i'm somehow "going over the limit" of the internet way too quickly?

I have a few backups, but it doesn't seem to be making anymore. It keeps scytching files and never ends... If i close it with taskmanager it still doesn't let me get a new one running because "it's already open"

I still find some of the programs like Skype or Dropbox to be quite handy.
Is there even a decent, easy to use replacement for Dropbox that avoids the problem you've mentioned?  ???

If you really don't care for looks, and really, really, really REALLY feel like you need the most of your machine, as a begginer you could go Wattos, it's a *bit* faster, smaller and less ram-demanding, i would say something around 11-20% or so, it would be the best if what you're looking is just overall use the most of your machine, as you don't want puppy linux or it's derivatives.
Slitaz will be a bit of a pain, but it's going to make it seem like you're piloting a turbo car, or at least that's what i'm guessing, low ram cost, low disk size, huge speed.
Vsido/SparkyLXDE are a bit more difficult to install than watt/pepper, but they will be even lighter.
If you really want to go for the full light house you would need to either tweak pepper/watt/sli/vsi/spar quite a bit, as it would be easier than making a minimal Debian install. Hope this helps you.
Either way you choose, keep this forurm as a good place of learning, i learnt about Timeshift here, Fluxbox configurating, and those two were pretty helpful (really liking timeshift for all it's sheer power of making my tweakage a bit more safe).

General Discussion / Re: How Fast Is Peppermint 7 ?
« on: October 10, 2016, 09:14:45 pm »
From my experience Peppermint is fast, the only things i've seen boot faster were:
Wattos, although it looks a lot like default lxde, and has somehow less software installed than peppermint, Lubuntu although the exprience is very meh, pretty much all of the "Run on ram" distros.
Pretty much everything else is on par or slower than Peppermintos as far as i remember

Seems pretty helpful! I use my computer for really long periods if i'm able to, so this will come in handy.

User Submitted Tutorials / Compton Config & Short Guide
« on: October 06, 2016, 11:00:05 am »
Hi, Elemec here, and i've found that there isn't a compton config around this forum (At least not that i've found) so i decided to show my config (which is a mix of two different configs from two different forums for two different distros  ??? in a way it won't break, rather, it works nicely and blends well.)

It's not hard to do, installing compton is a matter of Synaptic "Search for compton" and then Mark for install, or sudo apt-get install compton.
Compton is now installed, you may open a terminal and type "compton" and see if it works, if nothing goes wrong, you'll have compton on, but it has no config, so it's sorta useless, for now. This was a test because some people have problems with compton even without configs.

Now, it's the fun part. Go to your home folder, and look for the .config folder. Going there, you'll make an empty archive named compton.conf and copy-paste this code :

#                               INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS                                       #
#                                                                                               #
# Step 1 - Install Compton by opening your terminal, and enter the following command...         #
#                                                                                               #
#          sudo apt-get install compton                                                         #
#                                                                                               #
# Step 2 - Open your File Manager, click the View tab, and click Show Hidden.                   #
#          - Open the .config folder                                                            #
#          - Copy and paste this file into the .config folder.                                  #
#          - Make sure the file is named compton.conf                                           #
#          - You can close the File Manager now if you wish.                                    #
#                                                                                               #
# IMPORTANT! You can now try Compton BEFORE making it permanent. That way, you will see if      #
#            it causes any adverse effects on your system. To try Compton...                    #
#            - Open your menu and click Run.                                                    #
#            - In the window that pops up, type compton (all lower case), and hit Enter.        #
#            - Your screen may reset for a moment and reappear. Now try opening your menu,      #
#              and open some apps; such as, the file manager, terminal, Firefox, etc...         #
#            - If everything is working normally (apart from the expected shadows and fading),  #
#              proceed to Step 3. If you do have any adverse effects, log out of your computer. #
#              When you log back in, everything should return to normal. Remove Compton from    #
#              your system if you wish.                                                         #
#                                                                                               #                                                                                   
# Step 3 - Return to your terminal, and enter the following command...                          #
#                                                                                               #
#          sudo leafpad ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart                                      #
#                                                                                               #
#          That will open your autostart configuration file. We want Compton to start when      #
#          the computer starts, so simply add the following command to the autostart file...    #
#                                                                                               #
#          @compton                                                                             #
#                                                                                               #
#          Close the file, and save the changes when asked.                                     #
#                                                                                               #
# Step 4 - Log out of your computer, and log back in. Compton should now be actively working.   #
#          You can change the parameters of this file to suit your taste.                       #
#                                                                                               #

The start is a bit messy, but it's just to get you to know a bit more detailed(ly) how to do everthing there.
Kudos to VSIDO forum guys and Wattos forum guys.

As always, if you want to remove something or add to your own config, be sure to do! This is just a small guideline on how Compton can end up being like.

Handy! I've never seen other Linux Forum mentioning something as handy as this (maybe i did and didn't notice). Seems very useful, i'll leave it installed.

Alright, i'm trying P7 while trying to have these goals "Stop trying to thinker so much!"
It's been pretty good, but i had 3 problems.
1- Installation (Live vers) crashed 2 times, and counted that as a full install, so i had absolutely no way to use this pc unless i installed a distro again.
2- Installation (Non-Live vers) was very buggy, but was the one that worked, not too big of a problem.
3- Steam isn't properly working, although i had the same problem with Sparky Linux LXDE

General Discussion / Re: What music player you are using?
« on: October 05, 2016, 01:11:18 pm »
Audacius and VLC are the only ones i use.
Audacius because lightweight, simply that, my major problem is that it needs (or needed?) PPAs and i kinda dislike clunking my system with them as of now.
VLC because it's the "run everything, maybe even a .exe file!" Media Player.
