What is your Linux distribution

Are you speaking about my iMac at home? :wink:

I have already mentioned that I am a big fan of SUSE (openSuse and SLED) – re post: SLES12 based Nethserver implementation?

I have had experienced of most distributions (and probably all main-stream distros - eg Suse, Debian, Slackware, Arch, Red-Hat, Gentoo etc.) but prefer RPM based installs.

As far as desktop GUIs, I like KDE / QT a lot (have been using KDE since version 3) but also found that a lot of my clients / end-users prefer to use Mate (I really dislike Gnome 3).

I also like the Enlightment and XFCE projects (also I should mention the terminal / console and ncurses based projects such as Midnight Commander and Yast.)

I am still a user of WinXP as a OS for games and entertainment software (such as XBMC)

I’m testing currently centos7 on a dell E6510, quite fine, it looks fun…I’m Fed(ora) up … at the end I will return to Debian, let me just one month :slight_smile:


(Michele Bortolotto) #44

Debian win! Stable, testing or sid?


(Stéphane de Labrusse) #45

I do love stability, I just want to work : my $debian = $stable->get(‘Jessie’);


(Michele Bortolotto) #46

I’m on mint just beacouse i’ve no more time for sid


(Charlie Lehardy) #47

I use Mint, but I confess that it runs in VMbox on my Win7 desktop.

I moved 2 posts to a new topic: Fedora kills video stars (aka no more video on Fedora 22)

Hi @filippo_carletti,
I finally settled for CopyQ: it probably has more feature than I’ll ever need but conversely has some goodies that the other alternatives lacks.
May be you could find it useful too!


(Filippo Carletti) #50

It seems a bit overkill and the hotkeys don’t work for me.


(Martín Cigorraga) #51

Well yes, it’s like The Big Bertha of the clipboard managers :stuck_out_tongue:
Regarding the hotkeys they work fine here (once you’re inside the application, of course); to invoke the clipboard manager - I preload it when desktop loads - I use “copyq toggle” mapped to a shortcut.

Funny thing is that In the list I shared there’s a clipboard manager that uses dmenu and a hack to save clipboard’s contents in a text file; that would do perfectly to me if it wasn’t for one annoying bug… May be I can find some time to debug it.

Best.

I use Arch Linux and before that Ubuntu. Lots of windows and Mac too.


(Jonathan Dumont) #53

Hi Charlie,

you could do the inverse too
running linux as main OS and Windows into a VirtualBox
Actually, with xfreerdp you could launch one apps a time instead all the Virtual Windows

there a script exemple

xfreerdp
-T “Windows &”
-u “$USER”
-z
$IPofWindows

Mint and Ubuntu are too commercial for me
I rather running Debian, even Sid than Mint and/or Ubuntu


Getting started discussions
(Adrián Prado Castro) #55

Yeah! Manharo 15.09 XFCE. :grinning:
Centos is great. I started using it with Kaltura , years ago

However I support an academic hall with 18 iMac where I chose KXStudio as dual system.


(Vhinz Sanchez) #56

I use Ubuntu at home. It was the OS on my personal laptop and my then 1.5 y/o son learned how to use it to play his game. :grinning: BTW, Ubuntu because of simplicity and the fact that it was widely marketed and GUI was okay (read that Mint was superior or was close to Windows GUI but I have learned to use Ubuntu since Gnome).


(fabio_ceccarani) #57

Opensuse for years, now Ubuntu but with Cinnamon.


#58

Nethserver :clap:


(Uroš Benkič) #59

(Alessio Fattorini) #60
