    Project mention: How can i launch rofi on super+space shortcut? | | 2021-04-12

    Recently i started using bspwm. I've had dmenu for my super + space shortcut, but i have installed this polybar themes, and they have this cool rofi app menu. I wanted to have this on super + space, but in sxhkd putting a line rofi -no-config -no-lazy-grab -show drun -modi drun -theme ~/.config/polybar/shapes/scripts/rofi/launcher.rasi (which is in file which is launched when app menu module on polybar is clicked) doesn't work. Putting there path to or putting there a line like sh ~/path/to/ doesn't work either. I'm new to polybar, rofi and bspwm, so i really don't know how to do it

  • GitHub repo ramroot

    Load root file system to ram during boot.

    Project mention: USB stick longevity as a boot drive | | 2021-01-29

    You could also use the Arch Linux guide above and install Arch Linux on the USB drive, making sure the boot and root partition sizes are less than the amount of ram in the machine you are booting on. Then install ramroot which will load up your system into ram on boot. This will mean the system runs off ram and not USB. If you need to make changes, install applications or update, you could boot it normally so it runs off USB as any changes won't be saved if it is booted into ram. If your home folder is on another partition on the USB, I don't think that is loaded into ram on boot so you can still save files to it and any personalisations should also be kept between boots.

    Project mention: DKMS GO BRRRRRRR | | 2021-02-21

    It is a copy-on-write filesystem, basically you can make snapshots of your filesystem and rollback from grub, snapper or timeshift make it quite easy. This has saved me quite a few times from broken updates, as long as grub works and you have a working snapshot you should be able to save your system. You can check out my guide on how to do it on arch, it is primarily for me as a reminder but you should be able to understand it too. On Garuda linux and openSUSE you can have it automatically set up during install.
