Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: just like in /sqt/ spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.
*Search: qwant, searx, ixquick or startpage.
*Many free software have active mailing lists.
*Many free software has an active bugzilla where you can check and report errors

So uhh maybe this is the wrong place to ask this but-
I have two routers acting as switches/dumb aps behind my main router (which I cannot change, due to the way FiOS works) running LEDE/openwrt, latest version, all that fun stuff.

Both are working perfectly fine as APs, both through wired and wireless, but I cannot pull the software package list, either through LuCI or by ssh through the opkg command.

My first thought was "Oh, maybe since they re-merged into the OpenWRT project maybe the url is wrong" or something but nope, through my desktop I can still download the packages. Where I get really confused is that I cannot ping google (ping -c 3 www.google.com) from the routers, but I can ping a local address (, just for shits and giggles).

So every device connected to these routers can access the internet perfectly fine, but I cannot ping any external site from them. Does anyone have any idea what the fuck I need to configure to let them communicate with stuff outside of my network? I'll admit I'm not the brightest with networking stuff

List the name of the specific piece of software and then point to its source where it mentions systemd as a specific, hard dependency. You still can't, because you're still a retard as in the last thread.

Daemons in general work just fine no matter what init systems you use, if a daemon package pulls systemd as a dependency that just means that the package maintainer ships it with a systemd unit but this still doesn't mean it actually depends on systemd, on a distro that ships with sysvinit the same daemon probably ships with an initscript instead and won't pull systemd as a dependency.

You might want to run 'apt --fix-broken install' to correct these.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libglx0:i386 : Depends: libglx-mesa0:i386 but it is not going to be installed or
libnvidia-ifr1-390 : Depends: libnvidia-gl-390 but it is not going to be installed
libnvidia-ifr1-390:i386 : Depends: libnvidia-gl-390:i386 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt --fix-broken install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

This is the problem, I removed the card, using an ATI 5670 right now.

How can I get rid of this shit, then move to ATI drivers?

Lighterweight DE but when I look at how much KDE uses it's really not much more. I assume it adds on if I cover my damn desktop with widgets. Still I'm familiar with XFCE because I use Xubuntu on my Thinkpad. It just doesn't feel the same on Manjaro XFCE.

Because you cannot claim things that are objectively wrong.

If you don't like something about a package, package it yourself. That way you can remove optional dependencies and your package manager won't install dependencies that you don't want.

KDE is an organisation. You don't even know what KDE or KDE Plasma are. Not even going to mention that you still didn't provide proof that KDE Plasma and its components hard depend on systemd.

When it comes to python scripts, should I be making them executable? Or should I always invoke them by typing python scriptname.py instead of ./scriptname.py?

Is there any "risk" in making them executable rather than invoking the interpreter?

>should I be making them executable? Or should I always invoke them by typing python scriptname.py instead of ./scriptname.py?
Personal preference.
However, making them executable has one advantage: you may have two separate Python versions installed on your system side-by-side: python2 and python3.
If you have a lot of Python scripts, you may have to think "is this a python2 script or a python3 script?"
By adding the Shebang to the script and making it executable, it will "just work" and you don't have to think about that.
You can even drop the .py ending in the filename.

>Is there any "risk" in making them executable rather than invoking the interpreter?
Not that I'm aware of.

>If it's okay to make them executable, should I restrict the execute permissions to only the script that actually gets run? For example, if I have other scripts that get imported to the main script, they don't need to be executable? I should just leave them without execute permissions?

I'm so tired of distro hopping.
It should, ordered by importance,
1- Have stable repositories with packages that just werk
2- Have recent packages, not too outdated
3- Have a default KDE option.

Due to the fact that backports exist, which I didn't know until recently, all my hopping was for naught

Any ideas for which one to go for?
Easy for automatic install and configuration by script is also a +, however KDE doesn't properly support this due to dozens of config files afaik

rsync is putting single quotes around filenames with spaces in them. How do I get it to stop?

>> No.66376139

If you need to transfer a filename that contains whitespace, you can either specify the --protect-args (-s)
option, or you’ll need to escape the whitespace in a way that the remote shell will understand. For instance:

rsync -av host:'file\ name\ with\ spaces' /dest

>> No.66376174

I've used the -s option (saw that in stackexchange too)
rsync -azsP

And rsyncing a single file is tupid, i'd use scp in that situation.

>> No.66377340

Looking at blame, no service takes longer than 1.900s to init, and systemd-analyze on its own gives this:

Startup finished in 2.911s (kernel) + 2.712s (userspace) = 5.623s
graphical.target reached after 2.700s in userspace

Looking at journalctl, I noticed some interesting stuff:

Jun 16 12:28:20 callisto systemd[1]: Started Getty on tty2.
(me logging into tty1 to try and get it to start faster)
Jun 16 12:28:40 callisto kernel: random: crng init done
Jun 16 12:28:40 callisto kernel: random: 7 urandom warning(s) missed due to ratelimiting

Then it finally started sddm. So I'm thinking it took ~20s for "crng init" to finish and the system could not move on to start sddm till then. After looking into it, it seems this is a bug with the kernel introduced around the time I installed Debian, and installing rng-tools might fix it. Going to give that a shot, thank you for your help.

if the wi-fi adapter needed some kind of proprietary driver its likely that it broke somewhere along the line and nobody can fix it, because, y'know, proprietary. This is also the reason why so many android phones run such ancient kernels and never get them upgraded, some proprietary driver for the SoC works against 3.16 LTS and nothing else, and the company that makes it no longer does, so they don't bother updating it.

I'm trying to do input validation in a shell script using grep. Let's say I want to make sure that a command line argument is a seven digit hexidecimal number with only upper case letters. I can do this:
echo $1 | grep -q '^[A-F0-9]\{7\}$' || exit 1
What I can't figure out is the best way to print a message and then exit. I thought that maybe I could do this:
echo $1 | grep -q '^[A-F0-9]\{7\}$' || echo "Error!" & exit 1
It works sort of, but forking "echo" and exiting causes the message to print at the command prompt, requiring the user to press enter to get a new one. I'd like to print the message first, THEN exit. If you use ";" or "&&" instead of "&", the script exits no matter what. If you use parentheses to run echo and exit in a subshell, "exit" just exists the subshell. The only way I've figured out to do this is to run "echo | grep ||" twice in a row, with the consequence of failure being the message the first time and the exit the second time.

Is there a better way to do it?

Solus choosing not to officially support some desktop environments (at the moment), because their dev-team is still comparably small to others and somewhat stretched thin working on other aspects of the project.

>> No.66382341

i see
i haven't looked into solus specifically, but i can imagine why a distro might want to hold off on adding a DE, namely because many distros have a particular purpose/look/feel they're going for, as well as distro-specific features which may need work to suit a new DE, this requires more work than simply taking upstream and turning it into a package, like most software
looking at their wikipedia entry, they even have their own DE, i'm sure they'd much rather focus on that than any third party ones, users who prefer others should be glad any other DE is supported
and of course, there's nothing stopping literally anyone from customising and packaging their preferred DE for it themselves, heck, do it and talk to them to see if your work can be upstreamed into solus. people work on foss because they want to, not because they have to, complaining gets you nowhere

Looks like I narrowed down my dual display problem in Ubuntu.

My secondary monitor appears as 'Unknown', that's why the resolution keeps changing to 1024x768, read many people complaining about this with old monitors via VGA as well. I'm gonna get a new one this week so no big deal.

Also, I'm getting started with GNU/Linux, went with Ubuntu as it seems the mos beginner friendly. Did the minimal install and got my W7 software replaced more or less. Any software, ricing, whatever I should try?

Probably referring to binary blobs in the Linux kernal. They are usually needed to get things like wifi working on all cards. That's why the approved gnu.org distros use a blob free version of the kernal that get with a script to filter it out or they used the linux-libre kernal that does that for them.
Some other things like libreboot do similar stuff too.
