Dock's for Oled 1 TB version? (lemmy.world)

Hey folks. I have been wondering about buying a dock or USB hub for my steam deck oled for a while now. That way I can connect and use a mouse and keyboard. The problem is that I don't know which one to buy. The official one is not only expensive but also a bit bulky for my use. I would like to have a mini option. What are your...

That's the first dock I've seen with a removable cable. You can actually switch it out with a longer cable, or a cable with a right-angle end. Not bad, not bad at all.

I think the big change is the OLED has a better charger chip, particularly in that it doesn't get crazy-hot when it's working. The OLED may be able to charge faster than the OG just on account of the charger chip not hitting its thermal limit, but it won't go beyond what it negotiated with the supply.

I have a UX3404VA_Q420, which is a fairly new Raptor Lake model. Mine also whiffs sleeping sometimes, so three things that I did were -

  1. (optional) make the keyboard backlight sleep , https://z5xggcj9nj.joplinusercontent.com/shares/oOunhKjHNLSyvAIH9wpjSY

  2. tell systemd to re-try sleeping, https://z5xggcj9nj.joplinusercontent.com/shares/lnLsgnRopyMIo7MjmzrqaO

  3. bind a hotkey to suspend. If I hit that, let it sleep, and then close the lid then it's pretty certain that the laptop is really asleep.

I have quite a few games where the native linux build is broken, too. World of Goo came out in 2008, and shockingly still works great today. I think #2 is gonna be great on Linux, too.

If nothing else, run weston. It's not an amazing wayland server, but it's something.

Master PDF Editor is on Flathub. If anything can be installed as a flatpak, I would try that first. If a program fits in a sandbox, consuming the files that I give it and drawing in its own little window, Flatpak has that down cold. If a program wants the ability to stick its hands into the guts of other programs and system services and shared libraries - that should happen at the distro level or not at all.

I feel that Debian has been having a painfully slow stable cycle, but now that it just tipped over into a brand-new stable release people are checking it out again. You can reasonably try it out and expect it to just work on new-ish hardware, without having to hunt down hardware enablement kernels or whatnot.

Windows 11 vs Ubuntu vs Fedora 39 vs Arch Linux - Speed Test! (youtu.be)

Even though different Linux distros are often fairly close in terms of real-life performance and all of them have a clear advantage over Windows in many use cases, we can't reject the fact that Arch Linux has undoubtedly won the competition. And now I'm so glad to have another reason to proudly say "I use Arch btw"...

If Windows 10 immediately destroys itself while trying to do its first update, you didn't actually fit it in 16gb. It hasn't fit inside of 32GB for several years now.

First of all, make a habit of checking IsThereAnyDeal before getting any PC game. There are lots of PC game stores, many selling Steam keys for less than Steam. Or you could get a bundle with some games you like, some you would never think of, for less than the price of 1. Right now I think Fanatical is about the best of the bundlers, Humble sometimes has good stuff too.

You might want to get more of your games on GoG than Steam. It's a little more work to set up Heroic to handle GoG, but after that it is pretty close to automatic. Once you have a GoG game working, it is never going to say "I know there is an update out there and I refuse to play until you download all 50 ziggabytes of it on your tethering".

I'm not particularly fond of FPSes, so I can't help you there. If you haven't already played Batman Arkham or the new Tomb Raider games on a console, catch up on those? The Humble Mind-Bending Masterpieces bundle is fantastic, being stuck on a couple of puzzles and having them roll around in your mind during dull ship duties could work together. Fanatical's 3 for $5 BYO Relentless bundle has Red Faction Guerilla, Void Scrappers, Graveyard Keeper or Neverinth?

The worst part of flatpaks is that they don't get to see the actual path of files that they open. Instead, they get a /var/run/1000/blah proxy. The proxy is forgotten after you reboot, so any flatpak that memorized that path is holding a bunch of dead links.

You can sorta change that default, but Apple sure loves to bury that particular setting. And occasionally forgets it.

First, make sure your laptop bios is up to date. Updating should be a simple matter of downloading the naked bios file, put it on a fat32 stick, boot into bios and use the built-in flasher.

You could set up a winToUSB drive to run the WD firmware update tool.

Or, you could go through this. https://community.frame.work/t/western-digital-drive-update-guide-without-windows-wd-dashboard/20616

In my experience, gnome-shell already has a highly variable refresh rate. Sometimes it'll go 2-5 frames without refreshing at all.

The other way to look at it is to stick the drives into a usb enclosure. That gets you away from the PC's 3v3 rail. If you then hang the drive enclosure off of a powered hub/dock, you are definitely way outside of the PC's power supply problems.

Here's one that I have, hopefully it's still made halfway good. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08G14NBCS/

Yes, the US grid is that bad (especially the profoundly corrupt Texas utility).

But in Linus's case, it was just a big fucking tree that came down on his street. That tree looks like a scary mess to clear.

I don't see how swap has much chance to fragment. A swapfile has to be fully allocated up front and cannot be CoW. If it's allocated well in the first place, it will stay that way.

The swap code doesn't really do I/O through the filesystem. AIUI, it locks the file, gets the disk block #s from the FS, and after that it accesses those blocks directly.

Wifi stopped showing in linux mint

Yesterday night I had a problem with a usb port and the touch pad not working, I restarted the system a few times and switched back and forth with windows (which is installed on a different drive), they didn't work even there.After a few restarts the usbport and the touch pad came back to life, but the wifi stopped working. When...

rotopenguin ,
@rotopenguin@infosec.pub avatar

Son of a bitch. Instead of "turning shit the fuck off", is windows putting the wifi card into some sort of eternal WoL mode when it shuts down? And the wifi card isn't resetting at boot time (or honoring a reset command) to give the linux drivers a known starting state?

Make Inkscape installed through Flatpak callable in the terminal as 'inkscape'?

I have a Python-package that calls Inkscape as part of a conversion process. I have it installed, but through Flatpak. This means that calling inkscape does not work in the terminal, but rather flatpak run org.inkscape.Inkscape. I need the package to be able to call it as inkscape....

rotopenguin ,
@rotopenguin@infosec.pub avatar

I handle it more like ln -s /var/lib/flatpak/exports/bin/org.inkscape.Inkscape ~/.local/bin/inkscape

.local/bin is a directory that you may have to make, but your shell's startup scripts should automatically add it to the PATH after that.

Videos stuttering across all applications

For a little over a month now, when playing videos on firefox, VLC, or any other application, I get infrequent stutters. This is with or without hardware accelleration. It's as if the video pauses briefly. If multiple videos are playing, even across different applications, each of them will be effected at the same time....
