Dad: What do you think about this laptop?
*looking at specs... Raising eyes. Intel i3 first gen., 2 GB RAM*
Me: Nice calculator10
When u use i3 and vim on arch linux so u wont have to touch the mouse and then remember that you're a web dev.23
Met a guy who uses linux as his main os, told me stuff about setting up i3, powerline, git.
Then I woke up, good dreams
Edit; I don’t really have any friends close to me to talk about these stuff (some lives in different provinces)15
> Hey I use Arch

Archlinux, i3, termite, vim, vimium.
Once after 2 hours working I realised I left the mouse in the other room.2
You know what I realized we should always say no for demo driven application development.
We should always ask for enough time do a proper development and if its not enough, shouldn’t write a single line.
Because once we deliver a working demo. Its release ready for them because its FUCKING WORKING..
And trying to explain why this is just a demo and cant be put to production is even bigger pain in the ass than saying no in the beginning.
LESSON LEARNED .4
Seniors: Welcome to the team. Feel free to ask anything if you need help. There is no such thing as stupid questions.
New Dev: Sure. Thanks.
*a few minutes later*
New Dev: How to comment a code?
Seniors: Google it....and please don't ask stupid questions.11
Been working on making my Linux installation pretty for the past few days – already posted on r/unixporn but I figured there might be a few people on here who would appreciate it. Link to the post: https://reddit.com/r/unixporn/...13
Antergos with KDE is so beautiful 😍😍
It is so customizable, something which I always missed in elementary.

That awkward moment when you realise that your machine is doing more learning than you this semester.5
FUCK YES! I FUCKING DID IT. I'M FUCKING RUNNING I3 ON LINUX ON MOTHER FLIPPING WINDOWS!!!
I'm sorry but I don't have anyone else to share this with. I feel so... empowered. If windows continues to support the wsl, who knows how far they will get. This makes windows so attractive. I still keep using debian on my desktop machine but my laptop isn't so underpowered in terms of software now that I'm figuring this stuff out.12
So I went to a Linux meetup group and there was this dude wearing an Arch Linux shirt and I went straight up to him and mocked him a bit. Had a nice conversation about i3 configs and other nerdy stuff. We stayed in touch via twitter :)4
This morning my girlfriend told me about the network at her school constantly disconnecting, to which I jokingly replied "So, it doesn't deserve candy". She came back with "But it's already asking for so many cookies"...
I love my girlfriend, but sometimes she doesn't get dev-work.
Last night, we had a fight over me sticking post-its to the wall in our home office. I find them helpful for keeping an overview of what I'm working on. She finds them ugly and decided to tear them all down without conferring with me. I got pissed. I almost always give in to her quirks and wants in every other aspect of how we live, so I feel like my desk space should at least be under my control. In my anger, I ordered her out of the room. She then proceeded to be sulking/angry with me up till and including this morning "because I overreacted".
Was I wrong? What should I have done differently?24
Growing up with thw crappiest netbook for 8 years, then a regular laptop, now an i3 laptop.
It pains me to see my classmates having i7 laptops and all they do with it is watch movies and browse the internet. All that wasted potential!

Hello everyone 👋
I see people blaming the developers when you see a crappy software product , saying that they have done a bad job.
But even it could be true also it could be the product managers who didn’t give enough time todo what needs to be done or project scope is too big for the persons knowledge.
I’ve worked in a company where deadlines were so tight I didn’t have enough time to proper UI and Testing. I used to be only developer who has someone experience and I had to train the interns as well. I am also to blame to joining such company but in desperate times takes desperate measures.
And now when i’m leaving the company and I have spend 2 years of my life for apps that I’m not proud of.
Just rant. Please feel free to give ur thoughts2
In three years, I switched from i3 wm on arch to i3 wm on Ubuntu 16.04 and recently to gnome on Ubuntu 18.04. It sounds like a massive downgrade but I like the normie life for now, it let's me focus on more important things than writing my own scripts to reset the brightness.10
1. talked to a dev and found out he never used git
2. saw a guy formatting the code in eclipse line by line, even when eclipse provides automatic formatting.2
Less rant, more mildly interesting Java trivia.
Integer i0 = 3; Integer i1 = 3;
Integer i2 = 300; Integer i3 = 300;
i0 == i1 is true as expected
i2 == i3 is actually false
Java caches -128 to 127 Integer objects for faster perf so when you're inside that range, the objects are indeed the same, but because == checks object equality, the Integer outside of the range is not cached and had to be initialized, so i2 and i3 are two different objects.
You can totally break some tests this way :)9
How many of you uses Linux? I personally used for the first time Antergos (that discontinued, memed, arch based distros) with kde, then I started using Manjaro with gnome, as Manjaro was unsupported by most of the communities because it was arch based, I decided to move to Ubuntu, I sticked around on Ubuntu with gnome and then I installed i3, omg I loved i3 so much, after months of Ubuntu with i3 I decided to try new desktop environments/distros, so I installed xubuntu, xfce was boring, but efficient, just perfect! Then I installed kde neon, just to try it out! Now I still have kde neon and I'm thinking about trying Debian!
What about you?15

Arch Rice Update
Distro: Arch Linux
Browser: qutebrowser with my GitHub open
Vim: Open with Python code, taglist, powerline and gruvbox color scheme
Terminal: st, Luke Smith's build
Neomutt, configured by mutt-wizard
Vifm, with ripped CDs and projects open
Qutebrowser means I can finally abandon my mouse/trackpad (except for pesky video ediors and music notation software). Nice feeling not having to drag my fingers over a piece of metal. Try it out!
Some dotfiles (not all): https://github.com/skuzzymiglet/...11
I began my first Linux / i3 install 7 days ago when I posted my first rant... And today I'm declaring it officially *done*! (Mostly because if I don't, I'll spend another week configuring the damn thing.)
Here it is. Few minor things to edit/fix (like the fact that it sometimes randomly logs me out after coming back from hibernation... Yeah, "minor") but the functionality is mostly there. I can ("should") get back to work!19
While trying to symlink my i3 config, I accidentally deleted it
So frustrated, and now I'm back to gnome cause I can't be bothered to redo the >5 hours I spent customising it :(2
Arch that I've had for a month
Applications: Firefox with riot.im chat, custom one-line music menu, vim markdown preview, gotop, vim with .zshrc, vim with README in Markdown, vim with python code
Arch Linux, i3 WM14
Marketing : Do you think we can implement this feature in a system?
Dev : Hmm....*checking specs*...This will...
Marketing : *interrupts* we have already signed a contract with a client.
Dev : ugh......7
So I've seen people post pictures of what their setups look like but i havent seen anyone post about what software they use, I was wondering what peoples software setup was like in terms of operating systems, window managers and programs that you use to develop/ help develop and whatever else you might use.
I personally use ubuntu with i3 as a window manager, atom as a text editor and of course terminal and google.24
I took wk119 to clean my desk and make my wife happy (for a short period of time).
WFH Setup has been rearranged shortly and is not finished. Most of the soldering/Arduino/Pi/drone stuff has been removed and will get a seperate workbench soon.
Lightning is not finished as i plan to reinstall the smart lightstripes again.
But hey , cleaning the desk is enough for this week :-)3
That moment when you try showing an issue to your senior developer and gradle takes forever to build.

wanted to try fedora on my laptop nd instead it removed my Windows from the laptop,
now installing Ubuntu 😪😪😪
such a start to the Sunday8
Creating a custom arch Linux live usb.
Need install media with lts kernel and thought I'd go full hog with x/i3 and some of my apps/configs.
Wish me luck.8
People with "I am a senior, only I have to be right" mindset are really fustrating to work it.
It is not that hard to accept the truth. No one can be right all the time and no one gonna look down on you for that. You don't have to shove off-topic stuffs down the other people's throat when you realize you might be wrong.4
Spent a lot of time designing a proper HTTP (dare I even say RESTful) API for our - what is until now a closed system, using a little-known/badly-supported message-over-websocket protocol to do RPC-style communications - supposedly enterprise-grade product.
I make the API spec go through several rounds of review with the rest of the dev team and customers/partners alike. After a few iterations, everybody agrees that the spec will meet the necessary requirements.
I start implementing according to spec. Because this is the first time we're actually building proper HTTP handling into the product, but we of course have to make it work at least somewhat with the RPC-style codebase, it's mostly foundational work. But still, I manage to get some initial endpoints fully implemented and working as per the spec we agreed. The first PR is created, reviews are positive, the direction is clear and what's there already works.
At this point in time, I leave on my honeymoon for two weeks. Naturally, I assume that the remaining endpoints will be completed following the outlines/example of the endpoints which I built. When I come back, the team mentions that the implementation is completed and I believe all is well.
The feature is deployed selectively to some alpha customers to start validation testing before the big rollout. It's been like that for a good month, until a few days ago when I get a question related to a PoC integration which they can't seem to get to work.
I start investigating and notice that the API hasn't been implemented according to the previously agreed upon spec at all. Not only did the team manage to implement the missing functionality in strange and some even broken ways, they also managed to refactor my previously working endpoints into being non-compliant.
Now, I'm a flexible guy. It's not because something isn't done exactly as I've imagined it that it's automatically bad. However, I know from experience that designing a good/clear/future-proof API is a tricky exercise. I've put a lot of time and effort into deliberate design decisions that made up the spec that we all reviewed repeatedly and agreed upon. The current implementation might also be fine, but I now have to go over each endpoint again and reason about whether the implementation still fulfills the requirements (both soft and hard) that we set out to meet.
I'm met with resistance, pushback and disbelief from product management and dev co-workers alike when I raise the concern that the API might actually not be production-ready (while I'm frantically rewriting my integration tests and figuring out how the actual implementation works in comparison to what was spec'ed).
Oh, and did I mention that product management wants to release this by end-of-week?!7

Meanwhile an audience is browsing Facebook on his phone...
Me: *Finish demo*
*Said member of audience calmly places his phone on the table.*
Douche: "So can you go over that once more?"
3:40 in the morning... Finally set up most of the basic of Arch with i3. Been more than 12 hours... My eyes r dying... And so m I... Kinda swollen arteries near side of the head coz of overload...
And I have college tomorrow... Or today... Watever 😭😭😭8
Anyone use the i3 window manager? I'm trying to get the hang of it, and I see no advantages, it's just harder to use, which is a shame because I /want/ to like it!13
That feeling you get when you realize that switching to a pure tiling window manager is the best thing you've done in your life since switching to boxers.3
So... a lot of people is uploading their setups .s
Here is mine. Its not so well but i get on well with it :3
It has got 8gigs of 2400 mhz ram
A gtx 1050ti
1 tb hdd
Can anyone recommend me a headset bc mine is kinda trash.11
It was so frustrating setting this one up. Lots of shouting in front of my monitors. But I think now I'm slowly getting somewhere with my first i3 setup.
Now to see if it will actually improve my workflow somehow.8
Went to an interview.
Interviewer said "X language is easy compare to our stack".
The next month, I saw on a job post that they're looking for that X role.
I should buy some sandwich2
I just got the news that my video driver for Linux was fixed. I removed windows from my machine and I am all happy now. I wasn't a windows hater but development is just so much smoother on Linux. (Mainly Java)
I also went an extra mile and checked out i3. So far, I like it5
well there's an interesting error😂😂😂😂😂
Stackoverflow clears our error and then I get a Stackoverflow error
Here is my home setup (I mainly work at home)
Left monitor is for my windows machine, right monitor swaps between my laptop and my PC (depends if I am working or not) laptop running Manjaro with i3 and the tablet on the whiteboard will be used for some monitoring in the future
Don't mind the terrible cable management behind the table :)2
How much You know from this?
How much you are earning by that knowledge?
How much your company can give that person?8
Trying out i3 (gaps) now. Time to mess my brain up with all these keybindings from i3, vim, termite, tmux, uzbl...
Could have tried qutebrowser too but sadly it doesn't work in my raspberry pi.10
Since everyone is swithcing to Linux I decided to switch to it myself. I chose Arch, as I have some experience with linux. After a couple of hours trying to get my PC to boot from USB (I forgot to turn secure boot of) I began installing. After about 2 hours of switching between install and chroot and the installed system to get Wi-Fi to work (fucking Wi-Fi!!) I was ready to install gui. I decided to go with i3, xfce terminal and zsh + oh-my-zsh. It took me about 5 hours to get the UI looking decent.
In the meantine I learned about AUR and yaourt and how to make a user that can use sudo.
After about 7-8 hours I can say that I actually love it!
What I love:
-yaourt: it can install any software you need. Not in official repo? No problem! It will find it in AUR.
-Pulse Audio: I can controll exactly how loud anything is.
-i3: just i3 in general. It was hard to get used to it at first (coming from windows and xfce), but after 10 minutes I didn't even use mouse.
What I didn't like:
-Getting Wi-Fi to work relyably. I had to switch between install media and live system many times just to install a package that is apparently needed for it, but it's not obvious on the wiki.
-Getting polish characters (like ę,ł,ś) to work took 2 hours and I got to the 4th page in google to find a working solution.
-lack of usefull documentation on what is needed to get a GUI working. There is just a paragraph that to run a DE or WM you need x11 server installed. After installing it and running startx nothing happened. After some googleing I learned that I also needed sddm or lightdm-gtk-greetet installed AND enabled by systemctl enable and NOT systemctl start.
-Systemd-boot. It can automatically detect that I have windows installed, but not the arch linux install I just did? What the fuck? Why?
Overall, if someone asked me if it was warth I would probably say yes. If I end up not liking it I still have my Windows install (for gaming) intact (I hope, I didn't check) I can return to.15
Finally swotched to Vim. Was thinking about it for a while now, and after installing Manjaro with i3, I decided to skip additional text editors. And you know what, it's fucking awesome. I've only played with it for one day and I love it.7
Was using six years old laptop with first gen Intel core i3 to train a neural net, placed the laptop on soft bed, training begins, thermal shutdown after 30-40 iterations(30 minutes).F***.
Now starting again :'|3
When you ought to be doing coding challenges but spend hours tweaking your i3 config instead...
(I'll stop when I get compton working, really I will...)1
I was inspired by ADL to show off my first rice. Need to write some conky scripts to make it a little more interesting on the desktop.
Using i3 as the WM, with more or less vanilla i3status. Thinking of switching over to polybar at some point possibly. I used oomox to make my own theme, so nemo, firefox, and all other system applications are matching. Check her out!7
Got ncmpcpp/cava/mpd working! (if you're wondering why it's ubuntu, just read a few rants ago :'^> ) and loving it. i gues i'll just open this up for people to post rices or any sort of pretty config. i still shill arch, just not if you like steam and have an nvidia graphics card! i'm in school and i don't really have time to sit down and learn what i broke and how to fix it, even if its a minor issue.8
So, 2 weeks ago, some guy in here left a comment about how great i3 is, so I was curious and installed it.
Since then I spend the same amount of time on playing with i3 as on doing actual work. Not sure if I love or hate that guy, but i3 really is awesome.5
i3 + vim
I have gotten addicted to splitting panes. I almost always have like 7 _ 10 splits in my 13in laptop.9
What if - when you want to switch off the light or anything, you are supposed to get electrocuted and die.
But instead, your consciousness switched to an alternate reality and live, and you wouldn't notice.
Jeez..I need to stop watching scifi. I wont look at switched the same again.2
I just installed voidlinux and daaaamn this shit is good. Its so lightweight and fast :3
And I don't even need the AUR to install i3-gaps. Its in the fucking main repo.
Now I'll just shut the fuck up and continue experimenting4
just saw a production level code, all the fucking variables in the code are in capital letters🤪😵😵😵2
I'm soon going to be crossing the path into the world of Linux with my first install.
So here's my device specs:
Toshiba Satellite L755-S5256
CPU: i3-2310 (2.1ghz)
I use the device to stream movies and TV onto my TV (through HDMI cord) since the TV can't connect to the internet.
Any suggestions for a simple and light weight distro I could use? Thanks everyone in advance!10
Man, I love i3wm/Xfce but I miss the flashiness of KDE. I think I'll try out KDE Neon in a vm and mull over the week if I should switch back...

Why the fuck these managers can’t understand that you can’t build a full blown system with in a week. After building a demo driven application to show the client you can tell the client we are fucking ready to launch the damn thing . I FUCKING MENTIONED BEFORE GOING TO THE MEETING ITS NOT RELEASE READY GOD DAMN IT.
Now when I say we can’t launch this app we need to fix things . THE FUCKING MANAGER HAS THE GUTS TO SAY “one day is enough to fix the issues right ? Shouldn’t be a big deal for you to fix this” .
Kill me now 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬7
Currently working in a virtual Linux machine running on a Windows host. The Linux VM is running i3 and I just locked the host for the umpteenth time because my dumbass pressed Win-L to switch one Window to the right...
Also, while typing out the tags, I got the tag-suggestion 'my password is as weak as my mental state' 😂
Fuck, I did not know it was possible to wait this long for something to boot up. Too scared to even install Visual Studio.

I can't use my second monitor right now because of DPI issues.
BTW, i configured Gentoo + i3
For now, i'll sleep sound 😅😅😊😊😊2

Management proposed to work with external freelancers, to "pick up speed so we can release these new designs sooner". We agreed, but of course we (the home team) can't have time to review their work because we need to develop other new features and bugfixes and such...
Weeks later, turns out that their changes are largely incompatible with the work we have been doing on the main branch. We are now rebasing/rewriting huge chunks of their work, probably taking as much time as it would have cost us to develop the design ourselves in the first place.4
<tl;dr>Remembered why I love programming so much, and so you should</tl;dr>
I went again in the coding zone, after a long time...
Yesterday, around 10 pm, I got some time to lose, and I decided to configure i3 on my linux partition. I was already using it for almost one year, but kept the manjaro default config to have something at least usable in the meantime. So I started to write down on paper which feature I wanted, then got to work, looking on ddg to find out how to accomplish some things (it was maybe the second time in my life I was touching i3 config files, didn't know anything about it), found interesting ideas, tweaked it this and there...
Before I knew it, it was 3:00 am, I decided to stop out of sleepiness.
Today, all I've wanted all day was to fine tune it again, some more. I really enjoyed it and wanted more of this feeling. Actually, when I had 1 hour for me today, I declared I was going to relax a bit, then started tweaking again. When my gf saw my screen, she was like "I thought you'd take some time for you ?", to which I answered honestly "I am, darling".
Of course, tweaking config files is no coding, but the feeling of writing your desires and having it appear, usable, in front of your eyes is common between the two.
What's sad is that I didn't felt like this for a really long time, because this year I only coded for school, trying to be on time on every fucking project we had to hand for crazy deadlines, and not one line for a personal project...
I've wanted to write my own website for some months now, but I think yesterday and today I got the kick I needed to start. I needed to remember what it's like to take pleasure for creating and doing what you're good at.
If there is a lesson to take from this, it's to never forget to take some time for you every now and then, and do everything to remember what you love to do, not what you have to do. Your sanity relies on this.
I felt I had to share this with you guys.1
I know. I have posted a lot of images of my desktop earlier. They looked really good but something similiar could be made by a monkey. What i mean by that is i didnt put much effort into them.
This time i decided to start over and make a new desktop and actually put some effort into it. So here it is.1
When you have a Database Theory final exam in 2 hours and you're cramming a 1/4 of the module. #uni #student
So I gave i3 a try today via Manjaro i3 (don't have time to get a config of my own from scratch, would rather have a working setup which I can fiddle around with).
It's pretty...good actually. Doesn't work quite as well as I'd hoped because of my laptop's small screen, but still nice. Works well with my Blender and editing workflow too, so that's a plus.
After I'd spent an hour fixing audio and WiFi issues, of course, because Linux, but then that's just part of the fun amirite4
Finally decided to give Arch Linux a go on hardware.
I've never had so much fun installing a distro before.
I chose Deepin as the desktop environment, it's fucking beautiful.
(I somehow didn't really take to i3, I prefer a full blown environment like Deepin).
Since it's my first time using Arch and Deepin, do you guys have any advice? How you like to use and maintain Arch? Any tips? Productivity hacks? (Besides a tiling WM)3
After the base installation of arch linux..I am trying to install the display server,Nvidia driver.and i3 wm...but getting errors..
Shall I install Display server xorg after or before the installation of Nvidia drivers??
What is the proper way to configure xorg and Nvidia?
When I give the startx command it is showing black screen....
Is it legal to destroy other company's site or app. because they didn't pay your money in the past?
and also app they created is not secure.
The company is in another country.
I'll still do that. I don't care.4
I've decided to change the key components of my Arch Linux system. Of course it's not gonna be quick but here's my plan:
i3 -> bspwm
VSCode -> GNU Emacs
What do you guys think?14
!rant && story
tl;dr I lost my path, learned to a lot about linux and found true love.
So because of the recent news about wpa2, I thought about learning to do some things network penetration with kali. My roommate and I took an old 8gb usb and turned it into a bootable usb with persistent storage. Maybe not the best choice, but atleast we know how to do that now.
Anyway, we started with a kali.iso from 2015, because we thought it would be faster than downloading it with a 150kpbs connection. Learned a lot from that mistake while waiting apt-get update/upgrade.
Next day I got access to some faster connection, downloaded a new release build and put the 2015 version out it's misery. Finally some signs of progress. But that was not enough. We wanted more. We (well atleast I) wanted to try i3, because one of my friends showed me to /r/unixporn (btw, pornhub is deprecated now). So after researching what i3 is, what a wm is AND what a dm is, we replaced gdm3 with lightdm and set i3 as standard wm. With the user guide on an other screen we started playing with i3. Apparently heaven is written with two characters only. Now I want to free myself from windows and have linux (Maybe arch) as my main system, but for now we continue to use thus kali usb to learn about how to set uo a nice desktop environment. Wait, why did we choose to install kali? 😂
I feel kinda sorry for that, but I want to experiment on there before until I feel confident. (Please hit me up with tips about i3)
Still gotta use Windows as a subsystem for gaming. 😥3
Over 100+ learning about, and configuring my i3 .config, .vimrc, .bashrc, etc. Exactly how I want it. Then one day: "Meh, time to reinstall and delete all configs!"
I have a serious problem.4
First time installing a Linux distro as my main system. I chose arch and finally got xorg with lightdm and i3 working. I really live it so far.
Still no browser besides lynx though. Buy there's a more important thing I need to fix first. Gotta style that white console away😎
Also I corrupted windows while installing, so I'll have to reinstall that later ¯\_(ツ)_/¯2
It's not the best but it's mine.
Distro: KDE Neon.
What do you guys use?
For those who are curious.

When you upgrade to awesome 4.1 and have to weed through and refactor 863 lines of Lua (not including theme file) -_- i3 is looking pretty good right about now3
As if I had nothing better to not nor deadlines I went on a mission to tweek my i3-wm installation with resulted in lightdm not starting... FML7
Decided to use awesomeWM - I prefer it massively to i3, even though I don't use it's optional tiling layout.
Anyway, after a number of hours, I've got it how I like it!2
Do you need a degree to become a software engineer ?
Now this is a question I’ve seen many people ask. I personally have no degree and I’ve been doing programming for the past 10 years (since I was 18 ). Whatever I learned, I learned from reading and watching tutorials.
So far It wasn’t a problem for me.
What do u guys think and what is your experience is this matter ?9
Well, look at the brighter side Android developers, that long time gradle takes to build gives you the much needed break, doesn't it?4
why do all of you get so hyped when you install arch linux? you guys sound like the type of people who jack off to arch lmao. lets keep it real tonight, some of you legit ejaculate fantasizing about arch linux like "ohh archh mm 💦💦 ohh tmux 💦 i3💦💦💦linux baby give me more👅💦"
maybe even cool hackermans who brag about installing arch wanna use it for hacking. r u a better hackerman now that u use arch linux ?10
To all fellow Java devs out there. Remember the Java life: "We code hard in the cubicle"
Started a new job at a big firm (previously came from a startup). Both do "scrum". Still have my mind blown because at the new job, we have people join the standup of which NOBODY in the team knows what their role is on the product...
Does this happen often in big corporates?5
I use mainly linux at home, but I have to use Windows at work. I don't hate Windows, but at least once per day at work I accidentally try a keyboard shortcut from my Arch + i3 setup and either end up with some random program from the start menu running (Windows key used in i3) or I flip one of my screens sideways... Nothing detrimental, just enough to be aggravating.1
Howdy DevRant. Back again, took a year away from social media..
Is this place still fucked? I.e hating on Apple Products and everyone is inferior unless you use Arch + i3.5
Asked us to build a car and later complain because it cannot fly.
And then, expect us to turn into a plane in 3days?
For those using i3 (especially in arch) could you tell me a bit about your set up and preferences? And what de/dm youre using and stuff
Its been recommended to me to use but id like to hear input from this community10
The feeling when you are very interested in Al, ML and want to do projects for college using tensorflow and openAI........
But you only have i3 with 4GB RAM plus 0 GPU.
That sucks.... 😶6
Installed i3 on my laptop. Like it so far.. I just need to get used to it, and figure out how to style it easily.. Any tips?9
A friend of me said that intel Pentium and i3 is the same, that all laptops with intel`s logo have the same processor, you just have to view the info. of yours...2
Heyo fellow i3wm-users.
Please give me some inspiration for my next setup.
What are your color-settings do you have,
What applauncher do you use,
What programs work really well with i3 or something completely different?6
Make the ubuntu upgrade to 18.04 and it takes forever to finish
It also updates new version of i3, I hereby gets this shit 🤦🏻♂️3
Tfw you write your i3 gaps Ansible playbook, it works first try and you to explain what you do to your mother2
My Laptop recently lost his mobility. I think my battery died ;_;
i3-status-bar shows me a nice 0,00% and as soon as my charger disconnects, it shuts down. Hope My insurance is still active...
Just downloaded BlackArch. Wow, 11GB 🤯. Can’t wait to see what’s in there. Whole bunch of tools I’ll never get to use anyway but my Manjaro i3 setup got boring and I wanna try something new1
Hey, I asked a similar question some weeks ago and couldn't manage to find a solution to my problem.
I run Debian with i3-wm.
Some applications, e.g. file-roller, menulibre, need really long to start, up to half a minute.
Has anyone of you had something similar, or knows what may cause this ?2
gonna rice up i3 real nice and classy on my new laptop.
do any of you know of a good spotify cli? i'm getting cmus in case spotify dosen't work, but it would save space if i could use spotify13
Guys, I'm planning to buy a new laptop for Dev purpose. My budget is under 45K INR. Need a laptop with 8GB RAM and I'm confused about the processor (i5 or i3 or AMD). Please suggest the processor I should choose and some laptop models meeting the above criteria.5
To all you linux fans out there:
What DE/WM would you use for a 2 monitor desktop setup?
I’ve tried i3 and a couple major DEs (xfce, gnome, kde,...) and i don’t really have a strong preference for either.
I like the efficiency of i3 but also the ease of use of - say - xfce. I’d definitely use i3 on a laptop, but i dunno what i should go for on desktop... recommendations?7
Moved to Ubuntu on my laptop this weekend. Installed the Server variant. Installed i3 and some other lightweight desktop environment as well (I need to put in some time to learn i3).
Wifi wasn't working straight away, which was nothing to do with drivers and everything to do with it being a server based startup process.
Typically, video playback is not v-synced, which is annoying. Haven't tried getting nvidia optimus to work, but I don't yet care about that.
VSCode, nodejs and Chromuim installed, which is all I really care about at the moment.
I'm going to miss Windows soon. I just know it.4
No no no, that's not for what I came to linux.
Opened couple of tasks including one browser with < 10 tabs, sublime, skype and it starts fucking hang.
I have 8g ram, core i3 .
I'm using Ubuntu 16 lts. Its such a shame6
Working on installing manjaro with i3 on an old Thinkpad T61 I got for 50 dollars. It's taking forever cause the internet speeds suck here and I've never installed anything but Ubuntu and mint so I'm hoping it goes well.
Anyone have any tips got this device?
Also slightly drunk, so that's a thing I guess.3
my workstation, can't imagine to work without it,
waiting for dev rant stickers even left some space for them
Proudly running Ubuntu Gnome 16.043
Just did a minimal install of Ubuntu in VirtualBox and also installed i3. Been a Windows user until now. This simply feels soooo good.11
Sircmpwn's sway wm, an i3 clone for Wayland, I love i3 but I'm also an advocate for the ditching of xorg. (Close to beta)
Honorable mention for anbox which tries to do a similar thing Google is doing to run Android apps natively in Linux. (Alpha)4
I'm considering switching to a tiling windows manager. The main thing drawing me back is that in my job we work a lot on each others computers (helping, debugging, pair programming...).
Will using a tiling WM make my workspace hard to use for somebody else ? It would be disqualifying7
Well, I love react-native and how easy to build mobile app with it. but damn look at these folder sizes jeez1
I couldn't find something on the internet, so maybe you can help me.
I run Debian + i3 on my laptop, and it takes incredible long, to start some software, especially from the Gnome-DE.
Does one of you know, why this occurs ?7
Just finished setting up my new mobile workstation (not a desktop killer unfortunately).
Have i3 booted on a chroot and configured and ready to get cracking for the night :D3
This is really shitty from ubuntu the reason I switched to linux was I had crappy windows error slow performance and that I gets hanged time to time.
Guess what I have same problem.on linux :/ fuck this ubuntu gnome.
Can anybody tell if there's any fucking os which doesn't get hang?
because Ubuntu is pissing me off
I have dell core i3 running with 8 g ram35
Should I wipe my duel boot Ubuntu/Windows and install antergos base + X + i3-wm during my final month of thesis?
Is there a really good reason to drop Ubuntu in favour of antergos base?3
Archbang, Archlabs or Manjaro?
I am interested in using i3 as my wm. And because I will install it in my daily driver laptop, I want it to be reasonably stable and not with breaking updates.
Any thoughts and / or recommendations?13
looking for a nice side project very badly..😖😖it sucks when you have nothing interesting to work on.3
Fuck you motherfuckin fuck!!!
Just installed Fedora on my laptop,
Installed i3wm aannnndddd i3 crashs every time, when I try to run it.7
Trying to debug my program but it only behaves correctly when I run it on debug mode not when I actually run the damn thing :/2
I am planning on switching to debian, (one of the distros on my "distros-to-try-before-i-die" list.) I downloaded the net install image, what i wanna know is that, what is the average size of the downloads for a minimal.install? By minimal I mean just the bare bones debian with the drivers, python, gcc, emacs, and well i3? Can i pull it off under a gig? (Data limit on my network)9
i3wm, use with vim and terminal stuff = barely touch mouse xD
(I'm so obsessed with i3 that I try to re-create it in Windows : https://github.com/CSaratakij/...)
(still not full featured, but get the job done xD)6
Well i fucking hate my life right now.. I had a running arch linux installation with i3 as my windows manager.. dont need a desktop environment.. i don't know what i've done but it doesnt boot anymore..
Guess i will reinstall it8

Recently I stumbled upon some articles on the internet claiming you could use window managers on the windows subsystem for Linux. I got a tad too excited, left what I was studying (today I regret it, I just finished a test I didn't know shit about), and started sudoing apt-get install the fuck out of my terminal. Downloaded an X server for Windows and pressed i3 on the terminal.
The server's window was black, but I knew everything was ok, so I pressed alt+enter. My poor eyes melted on the presence of the brightest, whitest terminal window I've ever seen. I must admit I felt really disgusted by the white, but that didn't matter, I had fucking i3 running on my windows laptop. Now when I get home I'll try to fix the dbus problem that prevents gui programs from starting and make everything look pretty. I hope it works!
tldr: I burned my eyes with a white terminal.

Seriously tho, if one of you has a solution or knows a supported i3 or barebones version or Linux to install on an old guy, I'm all ears...3
I feel inseparable from the i3 tiling window manager.anyone else with the same situation.also does anybody here use i3-gaps too5

So anyone think this Viv app (demoed in TechCrunch) is going to be a hit, when Siri and Alexa failed?4
I want to install linux besides windows on my new computer (i7-8700k, gtx 1080). I use debian with i3 on my laptop for work and want to have a similar development environment at home. Does anyone have an adive to choose between ElementaryOS and Arch, or just stick with Debian. i3-gaps will be the wm, I just can't use another one ;)
Does one distro has better support for Nvidia cards in fact I would like to try CUDA.
I do not have other requirements; mostly webdev with python in the backend, and a little c++ game with SDL. This should not be a problem in a new distro.
Thanks for some advices and pro/cons11
Thinking about upgrading a laptop, 4gb ram, i3, and an hdd. Should I upgrade the ram to 8b or the HDD to an SD? Mostly use it to web browsing, and occasional app development.9
Spending six hours installing Antergos and reinstalling Antergos because I can not log into my laptop when I install i3 nor when I install GNOME...
Turns out the drivers for NVIDIA got installed (I checked it without thinking about it) everytime and that was the culprit...
Lesson learned: install everything by yourself, that way you know what you have on your laptop, and makes it much easier to troubleshoot..1
friend: what os do you use?
me: arch linux

help me pl e a s e6
Played around with the window manager i3-gaps after seeing Luke Smith on Youtube. Seems really productive but I'm so used to minimizing windows.
What is the usual way in i3 to deal with Windows you keep open in the Background? Do you just move them to a different workspace?4
Recommendations for customizing vim & i3 for programming workflow?
Do you have any settings/plugins you prefer?
Also, any nice ideas for compiling latex docs while writing it in vim? Like a side by side thing maybe, not really looking for ide.7
Generally have great experience with our management.
I work at a scale-up, so I've had some run-ins with the founder shifting priorities too often in the early days, but he's got enough notion of tech to understand when we're telling about the why(not)s of what we can and can't do
A while back we got a product owner/manager/scrum master and he's great too. I've had times when he put pressure on making deadlines when it was really not helping, but overall great guy with a lot of empathy and respect for his team.
But recently I've been starting to feel like we (the dev team) are getting more and more excluded from the decision-making process of the features & designs that we're going to be working on. We used to have a say in what we felt like was a good idea for a feature or a design, but it feels to me like we don't get asked that question any more of late...
Not sure if I'm imagining it, or overreacting to a logical (possibly positive?) evolution in our development workflow...
It's a sad day when ChromeOS is starting to look tempting when buying an $850 chromebook (i3, 1080p) is compared to an equivalent windows machine (Celeron, 768p)...
I thought I left that hell behind .-.3

Install Linux, installed i3 wm and changed all mappings to custom ones.
someone knows some composite manager which allows you to set global transparency and remove it for certain programs.
I'm using i3-gaps and currently use compton but does not allow to exclude programs.
Thanks for the help3

How do you guys handle wifi on laptop with i3 setup? Isnt it ugly as fuck to scan and connect to wifi multiple times via cli? I mean setting default dns per wifi, spoofing mac in public wifi etc?6
I'm doing freelancing.
One client hires me for 30 hours/week.
And I'm are getting work irregular.
1 week is full of 30 hour
1 week just 10 hours.
1 week 20 hour.
What should I do?
I try to get other project but most of are For a full time.
One Client hires me but at that time the previous client gave me a full 30 hour's work so the new client could not get enough time and gave me low ratings because of time wasting.
I'm afraid that can happen again.3
nothing is better than starting the new year while working on a project,

i previously had Windows 10 and somehow my Windows was deleted so i installed Ubuntu and wiped the hard disk
can u suggest any full data recovery tool in linux from which i can recover the data i had in Windows.1
I'm so mixed about i3... On the one hand, it makes me focus a lot better on my work, on the other hand it's extremely ugly, sometimes a bit inconvenient (taking screenshots), and I don't wanna spend the time to make it look nice. Any suggestions? What window managers are you using?10
Trying wms other than i3 on Arch Linux. Looking things to customize and feel awesome eventually.3
bluetooth headphones full charged.

Anyone here tried to i3 rice antergos? I am new to the subject and I prefer to stick with antergos instead of pure arch.4
Entered into Arch club recently.
I've installed i3-gaps on my arch but looks very bad.
What I am missing?🤔10
Best choice: Getting into the technical stuffs... And blowing up my mind almost everyday with a never seen before problem.
Worst choice: Getting stuck into an IT 😐
I am currently creating a module where I have to put data in xls sheet from a given data, which contains date column,.
I have generated the sheet and the respective date column also has the format of Date which is default of Microsoft Excel.
But the big question noew arises that I am not able to sort the data according to the date column, the sorting is not working correctly.
If anyone has ever worked on this please tell!!3
just completed my first side project today after one and a half months of hard work.
Check it out:-
Please provide any suggestions and improvements.4
I want to intall a bare bones Linux set up with i3-wm. I'm looking at a Base antergos installation and continue to configure from there. Do you thing that this is a good place to start after using i3-wm on Ubuntu or would you recommend another distribution?
To add to it, the laptop ideally uses Nvidia Optimus4
Soon I'll reinstall my linux system. (Currently Antergos + KDE). People keep mentioning arch, i3, and rice. I wanna give it a try. Any suggestions or hints you guys can give me beforehand?2
Whenever someone would like to look up something on my laptop I take a deep, dark pleasure in watching them first struggle to move the mouse with the broken track pad, then drowning in desperation after they realise it's a Linux system with i3-wm.
But alas, I am a generous God and help them with 3 lightning fast keystrokes to open my installed browser - which is eLinks.
That usually does them in 😬2
Spent all day trying to fix my intermittently failing Wi-Fi connection on Linux. Error codes for wpa_supplicant are entirely unhelpful. -_-1
Fucking Matlab ><'
I can't get the fucking thing running on my Linux install. Took me 3hrs to install it, and now the fucking fonts won't show
i3 and Matlab do NOT go well together...
had a blast helping a pal install arch (and setting up the necessities, like i3-gaps, neofetch, wal, etc...). tonight was awesome.
PS: i can recite any basic arch install by memory now, EFI or BIOS, and i'm slightly better at navigating vim now5
Is Manjaro good for web and mobile developer? Currently I'm using Kubuntu, but I'm thinking about switching to Manjaro with i3. I'm using Andoroid Studion, Intellij, VS Code, GoLang and Java. I might replace VS Code with Vim later down the line.3
Guys please tell me a good linux distro ? Which provides the most suite suiteable dev env and I can play on all linux stuff there as well? I'm new to linux have tried elementry os didn't liked it was full of bugs.
Have just started installing ubuntu and its setup is crashing on my machine.. I have core i3 dell inspiron don't know if os's setp are causing issue or this laptop's hardware sucks6
I want to use a old (like around 6 years or so) old laptop with a i3 as controllcenter (for music, smarthome and stuff), writing machine and for some light virtualization maybe. It will run Arch (because i want toll tinker around with arch, so much fun ^^) and i just want to know your oppinions: Good Idea, Bad Idea and do you think it will even be working?2

This rabbit hole. And the project hasn't started yet for weeks and months.1
I have had this laptop with 2nd gen i3 for the past 5 years and it has seen things, run things that it shouldn't have and now I can't even run chrome and atom smoothly. And a ray of hope is seen when HP launches a new laptop but my hopes are crushed when it's only available in US.
All I want is a decent laptop 😭
As per this ad Samsung use HTML & bootstrap to change voice of bixby.
can someone tell me how can i do this?
(If anyone from Samsung. Inline CSS is bad practice)3
I'm wondering how you guys can use a laptop with keyboard that lacks something as crucial as numpad. Was it hard to get used to not having it? I'd love to replace my old Samsung Ativ Book 2 (that monstrous i3...) for a Dell XPS or something similar but seeing that it hasn't a numpad makes me wanna cry.
I'd love to hear from you, how is your experience without numpad and how long did it take to get used to.1
What is the price of internet plan at your place?

Does anybody know how show/hide apps in i3 without using the scratchpad?
I have a number of apps running in the background inside the scratchpad that I can show via different keybindigs. But whenever I move something to the scratchpad and want to show it later, I have to cycle through all my other scratchpad windows first.
I couldn't find anything on multiple scratchpads or hiding/showing something without the scratchpad in the internet. Another idea would be to use a workspace for hiding/showing apps but I don't want to list that workspace on i3-bar7
I am using Ubuntu+Windows 10 on my laptop
I have partitioned the hard disk in such a way that I have a portion where ubuntu is installed, a portion where windows is installed, and 2 other partitions which both ubuntu use common for data storage
it has been working fine till now
but today out of nowhere I am not able to access some folders on the common 2 drives in windows,
I am able to access all the folders in ubuntu but not in windows.
it says you don't have rights to access the folder
i try to change the settings the settings freeze and den I am not able to do anything
I have tried icacls in cmd but it's not working
any suggestions on how to fix this problem??2
Got rid in Windows completely because I realised I could never mine without the i3-wm. I can't help but remember when my Pokémon leveled up way back in the day and think
"Congratulations! Your polaroidkidd has evolved! 😅
Do you use i3 (dynamic tiling windows manager) on your *nix system?
What are your favourite tips/hacks for optimisation?8
Things that wasted my time this week:
bash in my .cshrc
Using the wrong application to open waves.
Logs after an if(a thing) return;
Updating i3-gaps and using my config and it locking up.
A testing machine having the wrong kernel as default.
Not a bad week :)
Learning to like manjaro, a lot, setting up i3 for a workstation and kubernetes cluster with a couple of manjaro workstations with just the cli installed... few gotchas on the way, get Hyper-V enhanced mode working but get a message session error on dbus launch - easy fix it is already launched by lightdm, the cli install doesn't start the network driver by default but can get a whole 3 node k8s cluster running in under an hour from scratch and forward i3 to a nice, fast, little windows x-server that I got for free with Microsoft reward points.. winning!
I was using ubuntu mate 16.04 and recently installed i3 wm and I am using it regularly. Any suggestions for me?2
Now the problem arises on how to remote control a linux machine with the i3 window manager. (With gui)
Teamviewer sends the windows key as the alt key and now no shortcuts work ...2
I want to learn, How to add test cases in android And also about layer code pattern. like Controller, View, model, persistence, network etc...
So Please suggest a few tutorial or blogs that help me.
And please give me some links that have a test for network functions and intent related test.
Something like the test for other methods that work of different thread. (Asynk task, Volley or etc..).3
Is there any websites where I can get few challenges order by difficulties of particular programing language.
Ex. I complete a Node.js or any other tutorial. Now I want to check and improve my knowledge by few challenges.
So is there any site where I can get that.
Like "Select Language and here is the list"
Bloody softlayer sending notifications about expected downtime on "IMS services" (which could mean any of a great number of things), without specifying what it is, what it does or to what services or regions it is related...
Grmbl, what use is there to get a notification about unexpected maintenance if you can't even make out if you'll be affected or not!
Easiest transition from xubuntu into a tiling WM like i3?. Is there a more forgiving solution for a mouse addict such as myself? should I master vim/emacs first?1
I installed arch on a 2012 MacBook pro today, that was fun, learned a lot more about Linux. Now, I don't know which DE to use.
I would use KDE, but last time I used it(recently) it reset the desktop configuration upon every boot, wiping panels and stuff. I'm sick of GNOME and Cinnamon, and XFCE is eh. Maybe i3?
i have a hp laptop and Windows 10
I wanna install ubuntu but all my previous attempts have been unsuccessful
Anyone who can point me into a good direction of linux customization? I want to customize my desktop experience. Like console style and such. I was thinking of arch but never actually made it trough setup.3
Got a couple of weeks down with ubuntu+i3 tools I started lightly using vim and ranger.
And other tools I should check out?
I am mainly a Java developer but write a lot of docs online.1
