MX Linux, Xfce 4.18

Closing the laptop lid suspends the system, opening it resumes it, but the screen is black. I'm guessing it's related to powerup because suspending through the logout menu and systemctl suspend both work as expected. When it's black, switching to a different tty works, as well as C-M-Backspace to logout.

Same results with both lightdm and sddm, when replacing suspend with hibernate, and I've tried a few solutions like disabling lock on sleep.

Seems like this issue has been around for years, but had a whole bunch of different causes since every other thread has a different solution.

XFSETTINGSD_DEBUG=1 xfsettingsd --replace --no-daemon > /tmp/xf.log 2>&1

ps -ef | grep -E 'screen|lock'

xfconf-query -c xfce4-power-manager -lv

.xsession-errors after suspend, logout, login

dmesg, cleared it before trying to suspend

After five months since the last patch and almost two years since the 0.2.0 release, version 0.3.0 of the minimalist Wayland tiler river has dropped last week.

The new version improves rendering performance and damage tracking, adds several quality of life features, such as resizing windows from all sides, extend the rules system, and supports several new Wayland protocols like text-input-v3, input-method-v2, fractional-scale-v1 and more.

Full change log can be found here.

Please don't get me wrong, this is not meant to be rude slander. MX Linux is not a bad Distro at all (even tho I've always opted for Debian instead) and peops are free to use what suits them best.

But compared to other Distros (like Arch, Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian or Mint) there doesn't seem to be much excitement about it. I hardly see articles about MX and I have barely seen people outing themselves as MX users which makes me wonder:

Are MX users just low key quiet, am I escaping their presence or is there a different reason for MX' high HPD score?

Btw: feel free to take a shot every time I write MX :p

Hello everyone, I have a weird problem with my mouse: when I switch the window focus, e.g. by alt tabbing to another window, or by closing a window, and the newly focused window is on my other monitor my mouse will jump to that monitor without me doing anything. It is not a deal breaker or something, but it is very annoying...

I am using Fedora 39 with Gnome 45 with xorg, nvidia 2070 super, running the nvidia drivers and a Ryzen 3600.

I looked in my control center for mouse options, but they are very much limited

Ive noticed its has been any activity in their github for a longtime. https://github.com/dylanaraps/neofetch

There are a few more info that could be added nowadays like Display Protocol (Wayland/X11) and Display size. FastFetch does this but Neofetch is globally recognized.

Fastfetch vs Neofetch

Fedora Linux is a community developed and maintained operating system. Fedora KDE is one of our adaptations of Fedora Linux for your laptop or desktop. With this milestone release of Fedora KDE 40, we hope that you’ll be interested in trying an OS that belongs to you from start to finish, from install to first shut down, from UI customizations to major changes under the hood!

Music Players (feddit.cl)
submitted 17 hours ago* (last edited 5 hours ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

Hello guys,
I'm looking for a music player, I have checked some wikis but none of those give me their personal opinion of the music players thus I would like to know your experience. Currently I am using musikcube as I just though it would look since since it can use your terminal colorscheme and I have also used Cue.
Anyway, what music player would you recommend for someone who has thousands of songs and wishes to create playlists seamlessly. Thanks in advance

Edit: Gave most of your recommendations a fair shot. In the end I decided to go for MPD + Ymuse since it was exactly what I needed plus Ymuse is gtk so its automatically themed for me. Thank You All Guys!
fair to say I was Ymused....

All my devices seem to have problems connecting to my homes router. This problem appears only on linux and only on my router. All other networks work flawlessly. My router is a CH7466CE.

EDIT: My router seems to have unfucked itself.

Tablet palm rejection (programming.dev)
submitted 1 day ago by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I own a ThinkPad X1 Tablet (Gen 2) - but the only thing that matters is that it is just a tablet with a touchscreen and Wacom pen.

When doing handwriting on it (using Rnote) I become very annoyed, because as soon as the stylus loses the hover signal (only about 1.5 cm) the rest of my hand starts moving the canvas. As I tend to pull the pen far from the paper often this is really an issue.

When using Windows for the first time (with Windows Ink) I remember palm rejection working exceptionally well, even without using the pen - it just magically knows that this is part of my hand and not a finger. Also from what I remember any touch that started while the pen was hovering will not be registered even when the pen gets pulled away (you have to stop touching the screen and then touch it again)

Is there any way to improve the palm rejection on Linux (I'm using Gnome with Wayland btw) By the way, is there a way to scroll with the stylus like on Windows? And are there any good handwriting utilities for Wayland (I've only heard of CellWriter but it doesn't work well at all)?

Edit: I found the solution! All I had to do was add the uid with my username, then I also had to add "forceuid" for it to actually go through. My fstab entry now looks like:

// /mnt/Home-NAS/Media-Library cifs user=Jellyfin,password=password,uid=my_uid,forceuid,iocharset=utf8 0 0

Thank you @[email protected] for posting the solution from Stack Exchange!

Hello! I have an Ubuntu server with a NAS mounted using cifs-utils, and I've created an entry in fstab for the share to be mounted at boot.

My fstab entry looks like this:

// /mnt/Home-NAS/Media-Library cifs user=Jellyfin,password=password,iocharset=utf8 0 0

(The password is not actually "password" of course)

However, while I'm able to access the share perfectly fine, and even have a Jellyfin server reading from it, I cannot write files to the share without using sudo. I have some applications that manage metadata for music, and they're not able to change or add files in any way.

I am however able to access the share from my Fedora machine just fine with the same credentials, since I use KDE, I just added them to the default "Windows Share Credentials" setting. I don't have the issue where I have to use sudo to modify files, so I know it's just an issue with the share mounted to the server and not permission issues on the NAS itself.

What am I doing wrong?

I am not bad with computers and have a beginner+, maybe intermediate level knowledge of Linux and I kept running into some problems here and there with different distros. Most claimed to work out of the box (which may be the case for some users, but I have a shit ass Nvidia 1060 and that was not at all the case, until I installed Nobara KDE/Nvidia.

Just came here to potentially save someone time, this shit is actually working out of the box, closest experience to this was with Arch, but that's definitely not out of the box.

Sadly, DNF5 and the new Anaconda installer didn't make it to the party, in case you were wondering.

I, like many others, have been getting worn down by Microsoft's awful changes to Windows over the years, and I finally said enough is enough and moved to Linux.

I had a little linux experience beforehand due to my work, but this is my first time using it as my main OS. I am still very much a noob when it comes to linux.

So far it's been great though. I am running Linux mint.

I am having 2 issues I can't seem to solve, though. The taskbar (or I guess as Linux is calling it, the Panel) was only on one monitor rather than both. I managed to put a second one on my other monitor, and I enabled the "show windows from all workspaces" option on both panels. But it isn't behaving like I have come to expect using the Windows one.

For example, both panels have the icon for Firefox. If I have Firefox open on my main monitor, and click the firefox icon on my second monitor's panel, it just opens a new window instead of bringing the existing firefox window into focus.

An example of why this annoys me that sometimes I am playing a game that is full screen, and the flow i have over a decade of experience with is that i could click that firefox logo on the second monitor to bring up the window i already have open.

Is it possible to just have 2 identical panels that function the way the taskbar does on windows?

I am willing to switch from cinnamon to a different DE if thats what it takes. I tried installing xfce, but it seems like the issue is exactly the same there too. Not sure if switching to a different DE will help.

Or is the solution to just use a different applet than the default one in the panel?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, this is the only linux forum I am aware of.

EDIT: Strangely, it seems like this issue is only occurring on the second monitor. If an application is open on the second monitor, but I click the icon on the first monitor's panel, the behavior I want happens, it just puts the existing window in focus. Not sure why that is, the applets on both panels are identical as far as I can tell.

Ubuntu Snap Hate (self.linux)
submitted 1 day ago by Tekkip20 to c/[email protected]

I've gathered that a lot of people in the nix space seem to dislike snaps but otherwise like Flatpaks, what seems to be the difference here?

Are Snaps just a lot slower than flatpaks or something? They're both a bit bloaty as far as I know but makes Canonicals attempt worse?

Personally I think for home users or niche there should be a snap less variant of this distribution with all the bells and whistles.

Sure it might be pointless, but you could argue that for dozens of other distros that take Debian, Fedora or Arch stuff and make it as their own variant, I.e MX Linux or Manjaro.

What are your thoughts?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
