Don’t fall for the meme, brave just replaces 3rd party trackers with their own, even if you opt-out of the crypto advertisement thing.
Unless you’re a pajeet or a 12yo coomer, you don’t need to trade your privacy for some worthless shitcoin.

I’ve heard some of them from I’ll check the rest
Configure what ever your distro uses for a firewall. fail2ban if you enabled sshd. Flatpak (or snap if you are I to that sort of thing. A good terminal emulator. I like Tilix if you are a fellow GNOMie. Firefox and ungoogled Chromium for incompatible sites. Idk other cool shit you’re into. A good editor.
im fine with flatpak, I’ve read some stuff about snap guess im gonna stay away from that
Close. Windows 10.

i have Windows 11 on my pc literally just to play games, which is something i do very rarely nowadays

fair warning, Snap is only autistic because of Canonicals licensing. besides that it’s perfectly fine
flatpak is a mess and an excuse for scrotebrained developers to be lazy

Not him, but I think running pozzed apps (discord, steam, zoom etc.) through flatpak would be better than running them natively, without sandboxing. Am I wrong?

ksnip – simple screenshot tool that’s very similar to the windows snipping tool
OBS – good screen recorder/streamer
KdenLive – nice and simple video editor
GIMP/Krita – both are good options for image editors, although I think Krita is more for art
Kate – Notepad++-like text editor
youtube-dl – easy way to download YouTube videos
Enjoy your OS

DO NOT bother with any other shell than bash. If you are curious, try it.
But do not consider it as a default option. It’s a meme that might seem cool at first but bash is the defacto standard and all scripts are made to work with it. It’s light, fast and it werks.

isn’t tmux just something that binds terminal in 1 window?
October 13, 2021 at 12:29 am #197932AnonymousGuest
As far as I’m concerned, that’s what usually happens.
It’s a cute way to have terminal splitting/tabs without the terminal emulator supporting it.

I like the plugins there isn’t anything wrong with bash but I like zsh, autosuggestions/sudo/systemadmin plugins.

Last time I used flatpak was on a Cinnamon machine and I wanted digiKam. I also installed gimp 2.10 as mint still had 2.8 at the time.
Then I tried appimages and they both worked better. The gimp appimage had gmic and resynthesizer plugins which the flatpak missed.
October 13, 2021 at 12:34 am #197935AnonymousGuest
whats appimage actually? last time i used a software with .appimage extension it feels just like a portable software
October 13, 2021 at 12:37 am #197936
October 13, 2021 at 1:27 am #197941AnonymousGuest
that’s exactly what it is, a portable binary file. instead of the software being installed to the system through the default package manager, or manually through a .deb/.rpm or whatever, and it relying on the dependencies being installed already. it’s a self-contained, portable package, with all the dependencies included, so you don’t have to worry about incompatibility, different versions, etc. can also be sandboxed from the rest of the system. this explains it in simple terms: https://appimage.org/
it’s the equivalent of an MSI or DMG file on MacOS more or less, though you can also choose to run it portibly like an EXE
it’s not the equivalent to an MSI or DMG. Those are installers. appimage is 100% portable, no installation ever. that’s how they even market it on the official site
"Download an application, make it executable, and run! No need to install. No system libraries or system preferences are altered."

Depending on what you distro you installed you may or may not have timeshift installed, if you dont have it installed do so and make a snapshot before you do a distro update.

depends what you’re looking for. Personally I prefer CLI’s for some tasks and GUI’s for others so mine is a bit of a mix.These are my usual go-to’s
>sxhkd (if you dont switch DE’s a lot just use whatever hotkey manager comes with yours)
>rofi (dmenu works too if unavailable)
>mpv (or it’s derivatives if you prefer graphical interfaces)
>rxvt-unicode (use default terminal if you don’t care about ricing)
>clementine (I know it’s outdated as fuck, I just prefer the interface)
>Palemoon, Ungoogled-Chromium, or librewolf. (Whichever of the three comes to mind first that day)

Kupfer. It’s an lightweight and fast app and file launcher. It’s in the repo, I think you install it by sudo apt install kupfer.

Most shit is built in to your system by default, just figure out the terminal and you’ll be pretty much set.

>geany for writing code
>nano because vim is too much for my smooth brain
