@theKarlisK look, all IP cameras I had my hands on had a physical switch on it's logic board. In order to reset that one, you have to connect it to the computer using crossover cable. This is just making stuff harder because of cheaping out on a switch.
@arcsector Windows 10
@Fast-Nop I feel like Cinnamon is much better in that regard. It has desktop icons, no stupid alt+tab lag, it puts taskbar icons (you know, like these ones Steam has on Windows right next to clock, I don't know how they're actually called), no stupid "window is ready" notification, and you can actually manage the app list without any third-party tool! I don't know about volume mixer tho.
That said, I don't use Cinnamon daily, it's only on my dad's laptop.
@Fast-Nop @ScriptCoded The real problem with GNOME is the fact that, in order to use it, you have to fix it yourself first:
- lack of the desktop icons - seriously, just because you don't use something that often nowadays, doesn't mean nobody uses it. It's like Toyota removing reverse gear from it's car, because you just use it sometimes. There's an extension for that (which frankly sucks)
- Alt+Tab .15 second lag - again, why? Who goes and says "yes, my computer needs an artificial lag". There's an extension which removes that.
- default volume mixer doesn't allow you to change individual app sound - there's an extension for that
- no top icons - it's especially annoying when you use Wine programs
- annoyances like "window is ready" notification - there's an extension for it
- you can't manage app folders in app grid without extension

@gronostaj Indeed, but still - let's say I wanna play Minecraft and I have something open. I have to switch the Nvidia graphics on, then save everything, and now I can relog. Then when I decide I'm done and want to do something that doesn't need that much of a power, I need to do the same again. 'Tis just silly!
But I also would like to use the fingerprint sensor - and I haven't found solution for that.
@growling 670€ with shipping.
Also now I'm seriously doubting if I should keep Linux on it and if not put the Windows, because in order to switch between Nvidia and Intel graphics, I need to restart it... Every time. Windows does that seamlessly
@nitwhiz system loads superb quick. I downloaded Minecraft really quick to check the performance - stable 60 FPS while generating the world with no problem.
Now I'm going to be installing Pop!_OS.
I plugged in my USB drive to my computer, copied save and skin pack onto it. Then plugged it in into my Xbox. It appeared in file explorer. I clicked on it, selected skin, clicked "copy", clicked B to move back to the Minecraft hidden folder, pasted the skin into "skin_packs" folder. And did the same with world (but into the minecraftWorlds folder), started Minecraft, logged out and on to my account - there is my skin!
Now I click "Play" and there's also my world.
Then the next step was to try and run it on my Xbox. The first idea that came to my mind was to get the free trial of Minecraft Realms. I got it, and then I tried to upload my load, and... Unknown exception.
I tried few times with no luck.
I gave up for few days, and after few days I started to wonder about the other thing - can you put custom skin on Minecraft Xbox One? So I Googled again, and yes! To do so, I had to make a custom .mcpack skin pack. Then there was a matter of putting that .mcpack to my MC XONE. Turns out, you can't execute .mcpack files from file explorer, but apparently there's a tool on the store that lets you open the normally hidden part of the hard drive in the explorer which is called "UFO Explorer". I downloaded it from the store, opened it, got into setting, clicked on "Browse in Explorer"... Bam! There it is! Now I went few folders up to AppData, opened Minecraft folder (the file structure is the same as for Minecraft Bedrock on Windows 10).
Well, I was bored and started to wonder "can you actually convert Minecraft Java world to Bedrock". So I started to Google and found two tools that let you do that. I settled in "mcctoolchest PE", because it was the only one that ran on my Windows 10 installation from second HDD.
I did the first test run and found out that my inventory was missing. So I started up my Minecraft Java again, packed all stuff from inventory and Ender Chest (because these too dissapear) to normal chest and did the conversion again. So I started up my Minecraft Windows 10 Edition and...
It worked! It really did, although there were issues I mentioned above (the biggest problem for me was the redstone, because I have a lot of it). Then I found out that I have to cut out the End chunks, because these wouldn't load.
The next step was to try to run it on my OnePlus 6. It was just the matter of copy and pasting save file and voilá!
- New parts of the world generated on Bedrock will have a visible cutoff due to the different world generator
- The world WILL NOT upload to Minecraft Realms
Some issues I found while converting my Java world (Anvil save format) to Bedrock (WorldDB):
- Items in player inventory don't convert - you have to put them in the chest
- Enchant levels on items (except for books) don't convert
- Some items from newest version (like crossbow) don't convert
- Items like item frame are often hanging in air instead on the wall
- Items inside of item frames dissapear
- Maps don't convert
- Redstone repeaters are facing wrong direction
- Some redstone machines (due to how redstone in Bedrock works) don't work properly and require modification
- All horses on the world revert to default white horse which is untamable
- Boats simply dissapear
- Villager trades dissapear
- Villagers loose their jobs
- Potions in inventory revert to water bottles
- Beacons reset
- Dupe machines don't work
- Nether portals are not connected to each other and require a new portals
- End just crashes on enter
Bonus: the same world running on Android
@b3b3 because buying a fresh ones every few weeks suck
@platypus could he? No. The same goes for Windows tho. He's not really tech-savy, heck, I had to help him with restoring the setting on his iPhone 6S from iCloud, so he's not a really good test subject.
If he can't even manage iOS, he will not be able to do so with any other.
But when I showed him how to install themes to Gnome, he instantly jumped on the hype!
@platypus yes, I told him that some games may work poorly, or not work at all... He said "ok" and still wanted me to install it.
@alexbrooklyn well first I wanted to install him Linux Mint. You know, it's beginner friendly... But just when I was about to install it, he said "no. I don't want it to look like Windows. I want the same system like you use". I said to him "well the Pop!_OS is moderately advanced, are you sure about that?". He said yes. So there it is! Pop!_OS 19.04
@platypus well he asked me yesterday to do it actually
I still wish there was something like that for Formula 1, Formula E and WEC
I think it's the same case with slow Internet Explorer. Chrome indeed used to use tons of RAM, but nowadays it's much better.
That's some bad Photoshop
LineageOS all the things.
Except when they run Oxygen OS.
This comment was made by OnePlus gang!
@pro-grammar well there was something like 5.3 GB of files, and as you know that tool has 2 GB of limit... So I got out first 2 GB easily. Then I ran the VM, cloned it before installing the EaseUs and cloned rest of 3.5 GB.
@pro-grammar thank you for recommending that software. I guess I owe you a beer 😁
@netikras I'll remember that
Finally some good news for Huawei!
@mindev even tho it's considered the worst part, I liked Mystery of the Volcano the most
@KartSriv ah yes, we gonna break the law of physics
@KartSriv man, I wish to even have a 5.000€ car now and you're telling me about 2 million $
