    Project mention: Fedora Atomic Desktops | | 2024-02-09

    I use containerized versions of things, ubuntu and chainguard images mostly.

    You can always create containers with init if that's how you want to do that though. Some distros publish images that come that way:

    Project mention: Some web pages are not loading properly | /r/india | 2023-05-07

    I am using arch linux. For me github is loading very slow and sometimes web pages are not loading properly. For ex this github repo - keeps on loading and even after loading some images (like the drop down images) doesn't load properly. Only facing this problem with github and no other websites. Tried to go to github on my mobile (jio) and facing the same problem. Anyone having the same problem ?

  • polybar-themes

    A huge collection of polybar themes with different styles, colors and variants.

    Project mention: WiFi and Ethernet disconnecting on Asus X670E-E (AX210 / I225-V) | /r/archcraft | 2023-07-05

    I did try other kernels and what worked with me is to basically create a custom arch install. There seems to be a specific kernel/driver combination that works well with the WiFi/Ethernet drivers on my board and I can't just force some wifi drivers on the current kernel (I think 81.ucode is the latest one for the wifi but its using a version lower than that which I've already tested by force loading). For now I'm very much thankful that you can basically study and copy Archcraft's code/packages/configs (and my backups as well) and set it up on my custom arch install though it did take a few hours but I probably managed to restore 90% of my previous setup as everything is already on github. As a bonus, I did use u/adi1090x polybar-themes as well ( and study to integrate that pywal effect and basically add and integrate that on top of the default themes. But its just too cumbersome to edit one by one rather than having an already available distro so I'm still hoping for a permanent fix if any of you guys have an idea.

  • photoshopCClinux

    Photoshop CC v19 installer for Gnu/Linux

    Project mention: Windows feature that resets system clocks based on random data is wreaking havoc | | 2023-08-17

    Unless you need the newest features, Photoshop runs surprisingly well under Wine - and I don't mean this in the usual "oh yea, Wine totally works" way where it's a huge pain to set up and is 90% luck, it actually runs with barely more glitches than on Windows (not zero, but it's Adobe software, so you can't expect much).

    This is the installer I used to use:

    This one is newer and looks even more promising:
