Hello /r/linux I am pretty new to GNU/Linux an thought Ubuntu was a good entry point, however I had an issue that frequently occured which I couldn't solve: The navigation around the DE froze to the extent that I could only navigate the DE with the keys. The mouse-pointer was still moving but the right-click didn't work and I couldn't navigate with it, stuff like moving windows, clicking on icons and the likes. Plus I found out about the spyware in Unity. I then tried Linux Mint but the same issue reoccured. I couldn't fix this issue and I've tried many things. I came to the conclusion that the issue might be present in any Ubuntu flavour. So the question is if Debian is still as easy an entry into GNU/Linux like Ubuntu. I don't want to spend time on configuring the OS (yet). If it is, which distro would you recommend for my purpose ("it just works")? tl;dr: Is Debian as easy an entry into the GNU/Linux world like Ubuntu? If so, which distro would you recommend for my purpose ("it just works")? submitted by nautilus__ [link] [3 comments]

tl;dr: I help run a collaboratively written q&a site. I would greatly appreciate if the combined power of r/Linux could help out in creating a truly valuable resource by sharing their knowledge on a variety of Linux related subjects. Some examples: Distributions for desktop Window managers Desktop environments Terminal emulators Any little bit of information helps. The long version. Warts and all. We're building a resource for answering subjective question in a structured, collaborative way. Closest I can associatively describe it is it's a cross between StackExchange and Wikipedia. When someone asks a question like "what's the best distro to use in situation x", the structure makes for each answer to have clearly defined pros and cons, with sources backing up said claims. An important part of the process is the fact that anyone can edit anything that's written. So if someone adds a pro that's short on information, someone else can elaborate. Then, to surface the important information, there's a simple voting mechanism. The whole process should be intuitive, but, truthfully, there are still some very important hiccups, including the demanding contribution process and the very high variety in information quality. We're working on solving all issues as fast as possible, and there's an important redesign close to being finished, but I think the groundwork is solid and it's time for us to start actively getting people on board. And I hope to convince you to join us in creating something that helps avoid misinformation. The best way of me convincing you is for you to take a look at the stuff that we already have so you can hopefully see the value of what we're building. A good place to start would be the Linux tag or any of the questions I linked in the beginning. There's still lots to do to, but if you can get behind what we're trying to achieve and endure the rough edges, I'm sure that over time it will be a smooth, valuable experience. Be sure to let me know what do you think about all of this. If you think it's not worth the effort, let me know what would make it worth your while. If you think something should be done differently or added to the site, again, let me know. And if you want to jump on board completely and engage in discussions more deeply, we have forums set up with more details on what we're working on and what we're thinking about. I really do think that what we're building is great and I hope you can help in achieving its full potential. submitted by thekodols [link] [comment]

So I installed Fedora on my laptop and during the setup I encrypted the drive, now this isn't a how do I unlock the drive I forgot the password question. I now want to remove the boot encryption because I take my laptop a lot of places and like to employ some reverse security with my devices. I fear the best option would be to completely re-install fedora. submitted by evolvish [link] [1 comment]

I am looking for a handheld, pocketable UMPC with a full QWERTY keyboard, which is capable of running Linux distro (preferably Debian). I am mostly going to use it for SSHing into remote machines, but also occasional on-the-go browsing, student programming exercises compiling. OpenPandora is the closest thing I found which satisfies my needs, but it's a bit expensive. Are there any cheaper alternatives on the market, which I can buy from stock right now? Thanks! submitted by digiexcio [link] [comment]
