• General Linux Chat and Small Questions v. Install Arch

That's very much dependent on what you installed on top of arch. For example, if you installed Arch with KDE or GNOME and a bunch of services for all sorts of things, the system will run heavier than if you installed, lets say, Awesome WM and a few services.
In this case, you should try Openbox/XFCE/LXDE/awesome. All of those lightweight window managers are pretty awesome (:v:), but for me, openbox is my favorite.
Alright so i installed [B]Icedtea[/B] and every Java thing works. But not Minecraft? When i close it = Black screen, some minutes after crash.
[QUOTE=Moofy;35954020]Alright so i installed [B]Icedtea[/B] and every Java thing works. But not Minecraft? When i close it = Black screen, some minutes after crash.[/QUOTE] Have you tries using openjdk?
From what I recall minecraft never goes too well with anything other than Oracle's JDK.
[QUOTE=Boris-B;35954722]From what I recall minecraft never goes too well with anything other than Oracle's JDK.[/QUOTE] I believe that's what notch says, but in my experience I've never gotten minecraft to run with anything but openjdk.
[QUOTE=Moofy;35950130] Does anybody know how to create a launcher for a application/software? In XFCE i just right clicked and choose: "add launcher". I am using Ubuntu 12.04, with [B]GNOME CLASSIC[/B].[/QUOTE] I believe you do the same thing with GNOME 2. At least, that's how I remember it, adding a shortcuts panel. Anyone else tried the Guake Terminal? It's a must, if you're going to be fiddling with the terminal at all.
[QUOTE=Boris-B;35954722]From what I recall minecraft never goes too well with anything other than Oracle's JDK.[/QUOTE] Well i can make it run. Problem is that when i close it "crashes". But i still keep all my saves and so on. :dance:
[QUOTE=Boris-B;35954722]From what I recall minecraft never goes too well with anything other than Oracle's JDK.[/QUOTE] It works incredibly well running on my 2GB'o'RAM installation of Ubuntu 12.04, without any lag, and running my own Minecraft server. The server getting 256M of RAM and the client 512. Amazing. All of this, on the OpenJDK implementation.
Hooray, installed Arch Linux and gnome. Now to make it usable.
I have been trying to make my Xubuntu compatible with the fingerprint reader on my laptop, fprint worked really well, but when I tried making the OS itself use the fprint PAM module, I think I killed it. The guide I used said to remove the 2 lines that was inserted during the installation of fprint and libraries and replace them with similar lines. I did that, now my laptop doesn't get to the login screen. It stalls at "mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth [OK]" Could someone tell me if it's fixable without reinstalling it, or is it even possible to make fprint work with Xubuntu?
Trying out awesome, it's really weird but I feel like this going to be like Vim in that it's going to be really useful once I learn how to use it.
God damnit, lubuntu keeps freezing when I try to boot from a flash drive. I guess I'll burn a DVD and try that.
[QUOTE=neos300;35957923]Trying out awesome, it's really weird but I feel like this going to be like Vim in that it's going to be really useful once I learn how to use it.[/QUOTE] If you don't mind it not being filled with flashy effects and all that, but just wants something that works and has a shitton of functionality, then yes, I'd say go with Awesome. And it is really useful, it's amazing.
dynamic tiling window managers are [i]the[/i] shit however scrotwm > awesome tbh
Awesome is awesome. Now I just need to figure out how to make system monitors and crap appear on my desktop (not the status bars) like I've seen in some pictures.

But [B]T3hGamerDK[/B] how did you get Orcale JDK running in Ubuntu then?

[QUOTE=T3hGamerDK;35964062]I didn't?[/QUOTE] Oh my bad. __ Going to try Fedora 17 with XFCE when the release is out. Looks cool. When summer vacation hits I am home alone for a week or so, when it hits I will go for Arch, so parents wont bug me. :dance:
Hey guys. I've been using Ubuntu lately for my college course because I'm programming for Algorithms and Data Structures (C) and I have an issue with my Asus Motherboard. I have dual boot and every Asus motherboard now comes with the EPU aplication witch is a power saving/management program for the hardware in your computer. Problem is when I'm on windows with EPU everything runs smoothly and my computer is the silent thing on earth. When I'm in Ubuntu, since I don't have and can't find any Asus EPU for linux, the fan makes my PC sound like a hairdryer. Does someone know about any EPU like program for my Ubuntu? Thanks!
What a coincidence, I currently have Algorithms and data structures too! in C# though.
So, is arch infamous for it's difficulty to install? That's what I've sort of picked up from these posts.

[QUOTE=joshjet;35965133]So, is arch infamous for it's difficulty to install? That's what I've sort of picked up from these posts.[/QUOTE] No. Arch is generally very easy to install and even much easier to configure :v:
[QUOTE=joshjet;35965133]So, is arch infamous for it's difficulty to install? That's what I've sort of picked up from these posts.[/QUOTE] You can install and configure Arch within an hour or two.
[QUOTE=supervoltage;35965633]You can install and configure Arch within an hour or two.[/QUOTE] If you know what you're doing, probably in less than half an hour.
Arch guides you through everything. Just keep the wiki up and open the on-disk instructions in another terminal if it's your first time. Between those you pretty much can't fail.
[QUOTE=T3hGamerDK;35965637]If you know what you're doing, probably in less than half an hour.[/QUOTE] But indeed, my good friend; I forgot to mention that I referred to first-time installing, going hand in hand with the Arch Wiki.
Anyone else heard of the Guake Terminal?
