Hi there, Recently I have been noticing an increasing number of recommendations in /r/linux to switch to Fish Shell. I am currently using ZSH and since everything is working for me, I am wondering why people are moving from the quite powerful ZSH to Fish. What have you been missing from ZSH that Fish provides you? Thanks for sharing! submitted by orschiro [link] [comment]

I have been a devoted Debian fan for about 10 years, I use it on my home desktops (with XFCE wm), my work laptop (Mint - Debian Edition, with Cinnamon wm), on my at-home Development server, and on one of my amazon EC2 vms. I usually use the Jessie repos for the majority of my packages and sometimes pull from the Sid repos for packages which I need newer versions. This solution works very well most of the time, but in some cases I find myself having to add launchpad PPAs to my apt sources to pull down software which isn't available or isn't up-to-date in the Debian repos. I know, I know, using Ubuntu packages in Debian is a bad idea, this cannot be preached enough, there will be package conflicts and version conflicts and incompatibilities. Adding Launchpad PPAs to Debian is an even worse idea, Ive seen it break package dependency chains completely. There is an article here which outlines these issues and proposes a tool to help, but it is essentially just a tool to help you add PPA addresses to your sources list, which is exactly what we dont want to do. There is an official Debian HowTo here which describes how to use a launchpad PPA to download sources (with apt-source) and compile them to packages on your own system and then install the resulting .deb files* . This method is not much different than installing the pre-built binary packages, it still applies all the Ubuntu-specific patches, and the packages will still depend on Ubuntu-specific dependency package versions. My question is simple, would it be possible and/or beneficial to have a Launchpad-like facility specifically for Debian? Where people can have public and private repositories for projects, and pre-compiled binary packages available to download with debian-specific patches applied, for a variety of Debian target versions? I looked around, and I found the source code for launchpad.net itself is hosted on launchpad (see here), I imagine it would not be hard to create a derivative version. * As a side note, its interesting that Debain uses the 'ZFS on Linux' PPA as an example for apt-source, especially considering they dont advocate using ZFS on Linux, and there are official Debian .deb packages available for Debain anyway. submitted by flubba86 [link] [comment]

I came across an HN post about OS X auditing and wanted to look for something similar (better?) on linux. (I posted this question earlier in /r/linuxquestions but it seems like a not-noob question and more of a discussion so posting here). Is there a tool that logs (almost) every activity on my linux system in a human readable form? software use keylogging www activity (which urls were requested when, what was downloaded) file system activity shell command history as well as outputs (it could "snip" very long outputs or floods etc) and more that I cannot think of ATM Or is there a set of tools/settings etc that could enable this. I know one thing I'll have to do for this: minimal-ize my OS, i.e., use a small set of tools, *term, browser, shell etc. Not that this required but it'll make things a lot simpler. The purpose/motivation is to recap my activity weeks or months later and have a better context of what I was doing at that time. For example, if I was doing a tutorial from some website, what url was opened when, and which command was issued in the shell, and what was the output, etc, etc. Any ideas? (preferably something minimal not some GUI based tool like Activity Log Manager). submitted by physixer [link] [1 comment]

I've been running triple monitors on nvidia (proprietary) graphics for a while now. I came across a 4th and tried to get it configured. Of course I found that Nvidia had disabled the 4th monitor functionality (still available on kepler cards and Quadro cards) in the name of "Feature parity". Their documentation still shows a 2x2 arrangement (which should work with the old 295 driver). My question is this, is there a way around this restriction? Can Nouveau do the job (even if it means a minor hit in performance)? Am I screwed? submitted by ZombieLinux [link] [comment]

These terms are usually thrown around when discussing video card drivers, and I've probably left some important ones out - please include whatever you find relevant enough. submitted by FunctionPlastic [link] [comment]

I am having trouble building an embedded auto installing image of Ubuntu for HP thin clients. But I only need Mozilla to auto launch opening one url and for all other action to be locked down, i.e. closing or opening any other app will required an admin passwd. I also need to shutdown all ports except 8443. I am using the terminal as a kiosk. I have an image built but having difficulty with the Mozilla auto-launch and LinPE auto installing. submitted by iwant2fork [link] [comment]
