jesus its like theyre just chopping off all their limbs to own the libs. im sure this is going to decimate the number of freenode users based on connected clients lmao https://www.devever.net/~hl/freenode_suicide
also this has a really creepy cultish tone
i will either just sync individual folders or i will move these stupid cache folders out of .config and symlink them back in and not sync symlinks
my dad always has the weirdest issues related to the windows start menu. i keep telling him to install open-shell but he won't listen. despite the fact that he complains often about his strange issues and talks about how the windows 10 start menu is flooded with shitware
the w10 start menu honestly gives me a little bit of vertigo when i run into it on someone else's computer just because it is so visually bulky yet busy at the same time
i really need to think about how to manage these dotfiles now that im starting to get custom configs for programs set up the way i want. dont want to sync my entire .config folder particularly because apparently discord and chromium both keep their caches in the fucking .config folder which is... kind of shitty to be honest. .config is for CONFIG SHIT GET THAT OUTTA THERE
i think it shows up......... big think
the touchscreen works OOB as a mouse. no multitouch that ive been able to activate. and the mouse + trackpoint don't come back online if i detach it and reattach it. everything else works rather fine though which i'm kinda surprised by
i wonder if i could get the 3g/4g (not sure) card working under linux. if that is the case i could maybe utilize the card i have from the spare i broke in a router build later on down the line
the other weird ass thing about this laptop is that it has a capacitive touch button windows logo on the bottom of the tablet part of it (its a detachable convertible tablet thing but that doesnt work so well by default on linux) and that capacitive button just sends left super. thanks very useful
that feature seems to be present on many convertible tablets from the windows 8 era, probably by order of microsoft or something
actually i think that picom is doing *something* for this...
you know maybe i should figure out a decent panel program that works under wayland to use and use sway instead because this kind of stuff is ass and i want to see if the grass is truly greener on the other side
it might still be a graphics driver thing. i don't get that sort of screen tearing on my desktop which uses the proprietary nvidia driver with a config that i made to solve screen tearing already. but i tried some configuration with i915 that people recommended to fix screen tearing and that's what made xorg get stuck in such a bad loop of trying to repeatedly restart itself i needed to get a live usb to delete the config lol
okay, i totally don't know what i'm talking about bc i just looked at the template file and it's definitely not pulling down weston, i'm still confused as to what exactly installed wayland though because i just looked at the dependencies and reverse dependencies (which xbps makes nice and easy) and i can't immediately tell what exactly installed it and i was bad and didnt pay attention to what all dependencies the xfce -devel packages were pulling in
speaking of compositors i just did a look to see what void offers in their repos in terms of that and... while installing the devel packages for compiling the i3 workspaces xfce panel plugin it installed the 'wayland' compositor package. whatever that is, because i was under the impression that wayland is just a specification and isn't a compositor in of itself, and weston has its own package in the repos
turns out... i just needed to install the -devel versions of the dependencies and then the directions work exactly as the readme said it would. which is something that the readme said you might have to do. i am not great at reading. anyway putting void linux on this computer was a weird spur of the moment choice but its fine im flexing my muscles
it looks like it runs on steam via proton so the answer might be "uhhhh no". i can try it if i like my dad has a retail copy of it kicking around somewhere
