    Installing Games on Linux

    I wanted to make this post to try and help other folks with their gaming setup as it seems like this is still somewhat challenging for new users. I guess you can also say that this post is kind of inspired by the recent Linus Tech Tips Linux challenge, specifically around gaming. This post is...

    Second monitor not displaying desktop on login

    Hello folks, I have an odd issue with my config on EndeavourOS where upon login, sometimes, one of the two monitors, would just not display the desktop. I can fix it by either logging off and logging back in, or by going into the settings and disable/enable the monitor. This does not happen...

    New World on Linux

    Unfortunately I could not get this to work in Linux... based on ProtonDB no one else has either due to the anti-cheat software.... Right now would be a good time to have the EAC supported on Linux for this game! Hopefully the game devs will make this work as right now I have to use Windows to...

    Manjaro with XFCE

    I've been playing around with Manjaro XFCE edition in a VM. I find Manjaro did a really good job of customizing the XFCE theme... I compared it to the EndeavourOS XFCE install, the Manjaro version looks way better out of the box. Sorry, short post, probably fit for a tweet or something, but...

    Day 1/2 - My experience so far with Manjaro (coming from Fedora)

    As some of you already saw the other thread, I ended up dual booting Fedora and Manjaro in order to give Manjaro a try. Well, that did not last long, I ended up actually removing Fedora completely as I found myself going back to familiar territory (fedora in this case) when I was trying to...

    Rolling release distro

    So I've been watching DT's channel for a little while now, love his content! I came across this video a little while ago: Here he mentions about recommending rolling releases to new users. Personally, I am not really sure if this is a great idea, I understand the reasons for it, like being...

    Note taking apps

    So what do folks use for note taking on Linux? I've used OneNote in Windows, I really liked it, worked well, however at some point I ended up switching to Notion. I find Notion works better for me and how I take notes. I like the fact that there's a web version, so I pretty much just use my...

    Number of packages installed in Linux

    I am just curious, what are the average number of packages do folks typically have installed on their Linux machines? I've seen this question come up in Reddit a few times, most of the folks that respond are on Arch and it seems like a lot of them have under 2k in packages on their machines...

    Wayland + NVIDIA + Fedora experience so far

    I have to say, there's one thing that Wayland has fixed for me. Like the individual monitor refresh rate problem I am having with Xorg where I can't get my main monitor that supports 120hz to work in 120hz even though it is set in the settings, this is due to my second monitor being at 60hz and...

    Not sure if any folks here use these two tools, but I am a big fan of Terraform. I also recently started using Vault as my tool for secrets management. I ended up deploying it in my lab and through Terraform, configured the AWS secrets engine and then integrated Vault into other scripts I have...
