have to urge of using discord, playing valorant, installing fortnite, how do you guys do it? how do you stay away from the botnet
Just switched to linux

You can dual boot windows or set up an extremely flakey and motherboard specific GPU passthrough setup that will only work on your particular hardware combination so you can flex on LULZ despite your frame rates dropping at least 30% over running windows on bare metal.

If you're not retarded, your VM can achieve better performance than bare metal due to the fact that pretty much nothing runs on it except the game you wanna play
NTA but you can't play valo on a vm because of their chink anticheat
>NTA but you can't play valo on a vm because of their chink anticheat
VM detection can be bypassed
yeah, have fun with their ring0 modules. sure, some people can do it, but your average LULZtard cannot

It's not as hard as you can imagine
I've done it (not for cheating purposes) and it's not that hard
You can do gpu passthrough with one gpu, doesn't matter what motherboard you have or anything. The downside is that you have to quit out of x11/wayland while windows runs
People keep suggesting this but it takes just as long to open the VM and kick you out of your X session than it does to reboot into windows.
Plus you still can't play any games that ban VMs, which is a lot of them.
Also you still can't use your linux host system while the VM is running unless you think sshing into your host is acceptable.
It's basically dualbooting for contrarían retards when you do single GPU passthrough.
>unless you think sshing into your host is acceptable.
Why do you think we have piles of cheap thinkpads? You think we're doing anything useful locally on those?
>Also you still can't use your linux host system while the VM is running unless you think sshing into your host is acceptable.
>It's basically dualbooting for contrarían retards when you do single GPU passthrough.
sshing into my host is acceptable and i'm tired of pretending it isn't
consider this: overclocked DRAM, POSTing takes 666 quadrilion years because of it, or just an AM5 system
Gpu passtrough vm does not work for valorant. It's a trend and most anti-cheats will be blocking VMs soon enough.
at what point does it occur to retards that this is a red flag and that they are installing invasive malware on their own computers
Some people value fun more than making political statements about software licensing.
>not wanting to put blind faith in a video game company is a political statement
you are now morally obligated to sterilize yourself as soon as possible
It's for anticheat.
If you don't want them to spy on you run it from a partition with nothing sensitive. The cheating situation in online games is pretty bad.
realize that you're unironically addicted like people can be addicted to gambling or drinking. it lights up all the same systems and triggers the same kinds of cravings
if you just take away the thing you're addicted to and try to sit around fidgeting and not giving in, it'll go how you'd expect. you have to fill the time with other activities/hobbies. just force it bro. the first few days are the hardest
only good post itt
get addicted to using emacs, playing tuxracer, installing gentoo.
this, so much this.
For discord, I would run it in the browser, or install it through the package manager. Your distro probably has a "software store" you can install it from, but if you know what package manager your distro uses its usually faster to install it that way.
For Valorant and Fortnite, I just play games on my Switch or get the games running through Proton.
Im going against the LULZ hivemind here, and admit that Linux is absolutely less convenient than Windows. Once you learn how to get things running though, it can be a comfy experience.
Otherwise, if playing games on PC is really important to you, just dual-boot. There are tons of youtube guides on how to do so, and it brings the best of both worlds to your desktop.
Discord and video games are shit ways to waste time. Just watch odysee and LULZ shitpost, get a LULZ pass too it makes things feel better. Also I'm hyper-autistic so I like to browse products online like handmade gifts on etsy and just remark how neat they are but not actually buy any of them, well sometimes I do but I have to be really interested in it and I use ebay too to shop for antiques.
Go full gigachad and get a FSF approved thinkpad and sell all your gaming goylsop PC shit if you want to ascend to the higher planes.
I could get rid of every single goyslop device except my phone. It's quite amazing how much you can accomplish with once machine
the cord is thousand times better than this site
then go back you fucking shitter we dont want you here
don't care & didn't ask
If you have any creative hobbies at all, you're still gonna be dual booting windows.
Tell me how you're supposed to produce music without any one of several proprietary DAW suites?
How about digital art with anything but photoshop?
Or how about gimping yourself by using some freetard alternative to aftereffects?
This. I have a israelitetube channel with over 250k subs and use these 3 exclusively.
Mental Outlaw is that you?? I'm a huge fan!!
mental outlaw is at 439k rn
he fell off hard though, so who cares
you never edited a video professionally in your entire life, atleast name some usable linux alternatives like davinci resolve, also gimp is a piece of shit
>Tell me how you're supposed to produce music without any one of several proprietary DAW suites?
Audacity just works
you never made a song in your entire life
I have, actually. If you can’t accomplish anything with Audacity, you have no business making music.
i mean, i could, but in the same way i wont use notepad to make scripts i wont use audacity to make music as there are way better tools in the market
>i wont use notepad to make scripts
>audacity to make music
It's pretty good at audio maniplation. I used it for slicing up drum loops and interviews
>Tell me how you're supposed to produce music without any one of several proprietary DAW suites?
>How about digital art with anything but photoshop?
Nothing that requires PS is worth doing.
Plenty of people use ardour
>I'm hyper-autistic so I like to browse products online like handmade gifts on etsy and just remark how neat they are but not actually buy any of them
You're right this is extremely autistic
There’s literally nothing good on odyssey you can’t find on YouTube
>There’s literally nothing good on odyssey you can’t find on YouTube
Try finding videos that aren't kosher.
Most of shit that goes on there is garbage. I just have discord to shitpost with homosexuals and talk about music production.
Just play good games or do something else
>Just watch odysee and LULZ shitpost,
If you play /vr/ games, it'll be better than shitposting AND it'll be FOSS. The emulation at least. Shitposting here is becoming soulless and dirty. At least if I blow hours playing Might and Magic or Command And Conqueror, I'm satisfied.
>if its not on linux you dont need it
The eternal, neverending cope.
it's also true
you need surprisingly few things when you come down to it
If you need it, you need it, but if you don't get a free copy of PS from your employer, there's a 95% chance you don't do anything with it that cannot be done with a free alternative.
yeah but could you do it as fast? the workflow is photoshop is quite "optmized" if that world makes sense, when i use gimp i have to do alot of weird stuff to get what i want, in photoshop most of the time i have a effect or tool for that, plus the AI stuff in photoshop is way better
while i respect that dont act like you can replace a game with another one, you cannot play need for speed instead of forza horizon in the same way you cannot play UT4 instead of fortnite
GIMP is pretty wonky to get used to, yes. Krita is quite nice though.
Fortnite still works and I provided the way in which to play it. I'm still going to provide snark because this is an imageboard after all.
Realistically that's behind you. Once you've installed Linux your childhood is over.
Rite of passage
My first laptop had Linux installed by my parents. I was only 10.
stick to windows fr*gnagger
video games are bad for your health annon. learn to read a book
>Read a book for an hour
>Net change in IQ: 0 points

>Play video games for an hour

video games are addicting and affect your dopamine levels in a negative way. you learn things from books and they are comfy
post some books
k&r, sicp, dragon book
What a meme. C is not worth learning in [insert year]
Read "The Shallows: How The Internet Is Affecting Our Brain" and "Programming From The Ground Up" (the latter is free as in freedom and available on the savannah
I was expecting some Dostoshartsky, maybe greeks
for now I want to finish k&r and then read programming from the ground up, I admit I struggled with the exercises, never taught myself programming properly, uni didn't help either. In our programming class we had C among other stuff, and the recommended textbooks were k&r and the art of computer programming, from 100+ people nobody cared enough to read a single page from any of the books
why are zoomers like that? this was the way how boomers learned to program and gave us literally everything we have now, yet the my adhd zoomer peers prefer the udemy courses/yotube tutorials in hindi to the book from someone who created the fucking language

The Holy Bible (King James version)
The Stone and the Flute.
Games are great. It's just games before meant time waster, now it means lifestyle. That's the issue.
I like Discworld, Masters of Five Magic, and Stormlight Archives.
>have to urge of using discord, playing valorant, installing fortnite
jesus fucking christ grow up
fortnite, valorant are absolute dog shit. dunno why anyone would want to use it. discord is ok but you have to remember its being watched 24/7 and all yur shit is being tracked but that goes fro really anything tbh
>have to urge of using discord, playing valorant, installing fortnite,
I use Discord in a browser with firejail to communicate with my retarded friends
Play UT4 instead, Heroic Launcher works
>I use Discord in a browser with firejail to
could you explain how anon ty
Specifically, I use ungoogled-chromium and set the .desktop to firejail chromium. You can tweak the profile to allow what you want. If you run Arch you can make a ~/.config/chromium-flags.conf and set --disable-reading-from-canvas (and optionally --incognito), otherwise you can put that in the .desktop as well.
The only thing missing is push-to-talk, but I control that with hardware anyways.
Is there something wrong with installing the discord flatpak and using flatseal to control its permissions
I'm not versed on flatpak at all tbh, so it's not something I can really comment on. I've heard about that before and it sounds pretty cool. Flatpaks might be the future of Linux.
flatpaks work alright, but some programs like Steam run horribly on the flatpak for me. Just poke around and see what works for you
just install macos
install ubuntu archfag tells me gnome is bloat sudo apt-get autoremove gnome*
exits to black screen
Linus, is that you?
a better question is why are you trying to avoid the things you like? to fit in with LULZ autists?
>I threw away my hobbies because of LULZ memes and schizoposting
We all go through that phase, after a few days you'll realize that using your OS for your enjoyment is more important than using it as a status symbol and you will switch back.
discord works fine on linux, dunno anything about those games tho
Stop playing bad games, get other hobbies, paint, learn an instrument, play board games with humans for a change.
find a foss alternative and then never actually use it because it sucks
Simple. The only people I talk to are in my group therapy and I avoid every social interaction.
Group therapy was the biggest mistake of my life btw. It's like a /LULZ/ board meeting. At least I'm not the biggest sorry ass there.
Get better video game taste
>how do you guys do it?
I install i3, urxvt, vim, base-devel and just cooooodeeee!
>I install i3, urxvt, vim, base-devel
can you expand on what those are?
You can use discord and sandbox it on linux
I don't think you use linux OP
Just go the fuck back
I'm not saying this to gatekeep or anything, I'm just suggesting what's going to end up being less of a fucking headache long term
Don't be like me spending years and years justifying the nonsense that is loonix as a desktop OS
Installed their flatpak versions. It's quite a finicky solution but it works, and security autists have commended flatpak's sandbox's security provided you properly tweak the permissions.
At this point the only thing making me think of switching to linux once again is stable diffusion. On wangblows it sort of works but it's not ideal because I have a fucking AMD GPU. I can't bring myself to go back to the rest of it though. The rest of it being applying 20 tweaks that aren't just ticking boxes.
Remove WiFi firmware and go out into the woods with a solar panel.
>yes people need discord as everyone is there
I ghosted a guy because he refused to talk any other way than discord, he got pissy even if I just texted him. nothing of value was lost
mostly what switching to Linux did was force me to play better games instead of the current AAA thing
>Having to limit choices when you could just have decent taste
i think anyone who isnt retarded or soft you treat you like shit if you did something like that to them
also not all AAA is bad (if you are not a homosexual who complains about everything instead of having fun), but you also have to consider than there is alot of good games that dont work on linux
>You can be my friend only if you meet my software requirements
Uhh cool flex I guess but damn that guy dodged a bullet
he was the one with software requirements
>I'm not the retard!!! Everyone around me is!!
If you are over 12 thinking about those things please refrain from using the internet. Thanks
>playing valorant, installing fortnite
unironically play better games
competitive online gaming is a surrogate activity for unemployed people who have no challenges in life
This was me:
I don't see how your reply applies to what I said, since I offered suggestions in the first place. There's a discord app, I just don't prefer it. Fortnite works too, but I'm upset UT4 got shelved for a cartoon game. If you're talking about Valorent, take that up with Tencent and the Chinese overlords' kernel-level anticheat; that shit has nothing to do with Linux kernel development or its users.
Learn to do fun shit with computers. Identify problems and find solutions (aka learn programming/scripting). Then you will know all the cool things computers can do and gaming becomes much less interesting, because at the end of the day that is unproductive waste of time.
Use discord and play good games?
if you have to use pisscord use it with openasar or some other client like webcord
valorant is gay and fortnite is dead
use a partition if you ""need"" to play those gayms i guess
