make.conf is ONLY for global use flags. You set per-package use flags in /etc/portage/package.use
custom masks go in /etc/portage/package.mask
and keyword overrides in /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords

Yes all the current use flags you've set will get reverted the next time they're updated because portage thinks you're changing the global setting, and that's probably also why you've been needing so much autounmask shit.
Just start doing it correctly from now on.

Didnt know if this should be in SQT, DPT, or FGLT but Im guessing here because I think you all might be able to help more so sorry if it is wrong.

I am trying to connect a mouse and keyboard to a teensy lc (arduino type board) for as little money as possible. Getting a usb host adapter for it is around $25 and not made for the teensy's form factor so I looked for another solution. I thought I could fairly easily write up a java program to capture mouse and keyboard stuff and send it over a serial adapter to the teensy but that would be a pain needing to have a computer and serial adapter in the middle. Finally I came to another solution. I have a RPi Zero W that I dont use that I could use with an otg hub to connect the mouse and keyboard and it can be wired to send the data directly to the teensy over serial.

Where should I go to get started with such a project? I assume it will have to be some sort of graphical program since I need to capture mouse as well but I wish thats not the case. What language will it have to be? Id prefer to shell script over making a full blown program or something.

Mostly looking for someone to point me in the right direction.

>> No.66848211

to avoid a potential X/Y problem, can you explain why you need a keyboard and mouse on a teensy?
because mouse+kb > rpi zero > teensy sounds like it's probably not the best solution
for example, what are you using the teensy for that the zero can't?

USB emulation. Essentially as a project to get better at programming and electronics my friend had the idea to try to make an adapter to use mouse and keyboard on xbox as a controller. Teensy can emulate a controller nicely so I thought itd be a fun hobby type thing to do.
>to avoid a potential X/Y problem
What to you mean by this? If it is pointer location that isnt really what I am trying to get from the mouse, more like movement. I know how to handle the data if I can just get the mouse movement data (as well as clicks and maybe scroll) to the teensy. I already got it kinda got it working by hard wiring a shit old ps2 mouse to it and all I was able to get was mouse movement and clicks. I want to be able to use usb ports tho so I can use any mouse and keyboard and not just the shit ps2 ones I have collecting dust.

Care to explain? Id prefer if it was just a script I could run in terminal but from the little Ive googled (dont know where to start) you have to have x running to be able to get mouse movements.

What is the best distro for gayming on ryzen 2400g

>> No.66849226

Doesn't using a backup of / cause issues when switching distro and/or upgrading to a newer version? When talking about Windows you would never just copy system files or personal settings to a new OS yet under GNU/Linux it is always recommended and seems to be standard. Why?

I guess it's a bit less prone to errors if you skip customizations (hidden .folders?) but I still worry about it messing stuff up due to compatibility issues. As you probably notice I've never been on a single distro long enough for me to have gone through the update procedure and the answer might be obvious to more experienced users but I would really appreciate a simple explanation as to why it doesn't cause breakage and how it differs from a Windows perspective.

The kernel is the part that talks to your hardware, so yeah, basically. Newer kernel versions may include newer drivers that don't even exist in older kernels adding support for more hardware, or improvements on older ones.

Although I'll be honest I'm not sure if they retroactively update drivers in older kernels. My guess is that they do, but they don't add new support.
In general on GNU/Linux versioning is usually done with major and minor version numbers. The major numbers introduce new functionality while the minor numbers indicate bug fixes or updates on existing functionality.

Anybody know of a nice simple GUI file manager? Only requirement is that it's open source so I can compile it for my OS, and that it uses Motif or GTK.

I've tried a couple of them but they're all too busy and too modern. I want something that looks like the old Mac OS 9 file manager almost. Just a very simple window that displays files and directories, maybe with a file system path bar on top. Nothing more. The closest I found is Rox-FM but it's sorta shitty and hard to customized. I tried Xfe which I used around 2008 but for whatever reason on modern Linux and BSD it's really buggy and froze my whole desktop making me force terminate the X server on Debian. Thunar is what I've been using but it's still too busy. Gnome and KDE file managers are out of the question.

I think you can do it with i3bar by itself without using i3status.

Thunar just feels really clunky. It works, but it lacks the elegance of other file managers I've used in the past. Stuff like the side pane can't be toggled off. I can't hide that top bar with the directory path. It's just a waste of space, especially on my laptop which is 1366x768. I keep comparing my simple modern Linux experience to my old G3 Macintosh with OS 9.2 and 8.6 on it. The display was 1024x768 and it was more than enough for basic tasks. Even my old Windows XP PC had a 1024x768 display briefly and it was good enough, despite every XP UI element being thick as fuck. Now every UI element takes up so much space and things are crammed together and it's just bad.

I tried this and couldn't configure it how I wanted so I removed it.
This one is pretty good. I might tinker with it a bit, or just fork the Rox-FM source and remove the stuff that bugs me. Thanks for the suggestions.

Different Anon but I found that people in the Arch community often fail to maintain packages properly. I used to rely on it to easily get roguelikes another gaming-related packages but I found that some of them were out of date or wouldn't work without manual intervention. now I'm just compiling stuff from source I'm going to use lutris as a unified launcher on Opensuse since it's a stable work distro and I like to write literature as a hobby and delude myself into thinking it's a productive job.

Working on recreating my own I3 rice for once instead of copying others. Everything's in place except for the status bar. I'm not sure if I want to use bumble bee status or try to use the one from lxde.

Is it possible to have one session launch a full DE, complete with all the bullshit daemons and stuff, and another session that just starts i3? I mostly use my laptop for simple text editing on the road, so I don't need any auto-usb mounters or fancy daemons or whatever running and sucking up my battery, but sometimes I want to plug in my TV with an HDMI cable and just have the audio fucking work without fucking around with pulseaudio shit, and where things "just werk" in general.

I've been dual booting manjaro i3 and linux mint to solve this for a while, but if I can just have two sessions so I can switch between bloated just-werking and 16 hours of battery life text editing autism, that would be great. I don't need a step by step guide, just tell me what to google or link me to the right page on archwiki please.

Can someone please give me some resources on fonts and font configuration? I'm having a really hard time setting system fonts and having them be consistent. Can I do this with just the ~/.config/fontconfig/fonts.conf XML file? Do I need to use something like LXappearance for some things? Would really rather not install that though.

The arch wiki has been a big help but their articles on fonts and font configuration aren't doing anything for me, I can't seem to find much help on this topic anywhere at all.

>"#10: Use a hack with Debian

If you're using Debian, there is a simple hack you can use to switch your startup scripts to run in parallel. If you look at the /etc/init.d/rc script, you will see: CONCURRENCY=none around line 24. Change this line to CONCURRENCY=shell and you should see a reduction in boot times.

That's about it. Of course there are always more and better hacks out there. But the above should mostly cover everything. The good news is that you're most likely already running Linux, so the burden of boot times is generally eased by the infrequency of reboots."

I just saw this on a tech website and I'm was wondering if I could do it on my system. Unfortunately when I tried to go to /etc/init.d/rc in my file system is wasn't there. Did they change the name of the file or was it removed completely?

There's several layers to how fonts work, so listen up:

Fontconfig handles associations. It doesn't determine what fonts any applications will request, it only determines what font they receive based on their requests.
Fontconfig lets you do things like remap fonts. For instance one common mapping is Arial -> Liberation Sans because GNU/Linux doesn't have Arial (it's not a free font, but you can steal it from winshit if you want it)
So in short, the purpose of fontconfig is to set sane global preferences. Once you have that set how you like it then you should only change fonts using your applications.

Now, on the application side there's 2 more potential layers.
Applications can just let GUI toolkits like GTK or Qt can handle their font rendering, so those toolkits give the user a way to tell them what they want to use because the application was too lazy to do it. Meaning there are GTK config files on your machine where you can set a default.
So the full chain looks like this:
>GTK reads your GTK font preference from a config file -> GTK takes that string and sends it as a request to fontconfig -> Fontconfig checks how that string gets mapped to an actual font file.
Then the final layer to be aware of is of course just applications that will handle their own font settings. So they may tell GTK to use a different font than your GTK font setting. (or for less well behaved applications they'll just go hunt your machine for the font files themselves and completely ignore any toolkits or fontconfig).

The role of lxappearance is to set the values of your GTK preferences for you in the config files.

Redpill was used as a casual meme all over 4chan long before you ever saw it on /pol/. People would ask to be given a "redpill" on something just as a way to request information. For instance today I might as for someone to
>redpill me on GuixSD
Of course I wouldn't say that because newfags think it's a politically charged meme now.

there's nothing stopping you from using irfanview in linux, if that's what suits you

In order to get all the media viewable I had to install additional codecs and plugins... Which was wired into Windows. I anticipate possible problems with this on Linux...

It also seems a bit resource intensive...

With these two factors in mind, I was hoping there is a better Linux-native option already existing...
