Green and yellow are a such a pain to theme with


I find greens often disrupting the themes more than yellows. I tend to shift yellows towards orangiish or brownish tonalities while I usually make greens quite greyish or just really dark. Depending on particular themes sometimes I push them blueish instead (teal or teal-a-likes use to make nice greens). But yeah, green is pain. LOL. 

General Support / SpaceFM not fully abandoned... it seems!

I was unaware about the current version I'm using, but I noticed today it's SpaceFM 1.0.6. Hey, wasn't it frozen/abandoned on 1.0.5???

So went to github and guess what... IgnorantGuru is still quietly taking some care of his creature. Released two months ago. but yeah. It's there.  8)

General Support / Re: Unable to switch from Nvidia to AMD GPU

I see. blacklisting is not enough in this case like when playing with nvidia and nouveau.

Yes, xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is still in. There's an /etc/xorg.conf.d/10-keyboard.conf I manually put there for
an specific keyboard. I guess it won't do any harm, but I can remove it just in case.

Thanks a lot, PackRat.

@jedi: Really? Maybe the support for higher end cards is better. My experience with the 960 has never been smooth and drivers upgradrades have been a constant PITA.

General Support / Unable to switch from Nvidia to AMD GPU
« on: March 02, 2018, 11:08:37 AM »
This a kind of noob question... I've been using Nvivia cards since... forver. But I'm a total noob about AMD. It's the first time I put my hands on one of these.

The situation is I'm tired of struggling with the Nvidia propietary drivers since I've got the GTX960. Switched to nouveau a couple of months ago and performance is not so great. So I've got an RX560 trying to say goodbye to the Nvidia hardware for once and forget about the drivers mess just using what's in the kernel.

The thing is I don't know how the heck to switch the drivers in sid. The card works right out of the box in my Void install, but for some reason I don't manage to get it working for the sidbox. If I blacklist nouveau, poweroff, switch the GPUs and boot, grub doesn't even show up and the boot process stalls with udev saying something like that "the slot" is already in use and it freezes there forever.

Apparently I already have all the needed packages (firmware, xserver-xorg-video-amdgpu, the mesa stuff, etc...) onboard.

Please, someone able to shed some light?

Thanks a bunch in advance.

Happy birthday (somehow), boss! 14 is a good age indeed.

Yes. It was changed (once again) some time ago. Thankfully this time it's finally coherent amongst the programs in the suite so they can be grouped all together again as in older versions. I hope this change lasts for a good while.

Oh, I had no idea you are having health problems! So sorry about that. I hope you get well soon, VastOne.

I thought it was only the isos fatness issues reported above. Silly me. Whatever you decide to do. Get healthy and strong.

^ GTX960 here. More or less the same situation. It was unsupported and worked funny with nouveau, but the Nvidia drivers were not available when I got it. Had to wait for months to be able grab drivers from experimental... and crossing fingers. It worked fine in the end. I've got the drivers from Sid now and I have no performance complaints at all. Anyway, I'd like to bounce back to nouveau if possible. I should check if this card is finally fully suported to test it and check if vdpau works as good as with proprietary with mpv.

I guess it's the mesa transition still going on. It seems it has problems with Nividia. As PackRat pointed out it can make the whole Xsrever go away.

I also read somewhere early this summer that a big Xorg upgrade was coming. No idea if this is part of it or just the beginning. Haven't found any further reference yet. At least python has settle down.

This is an interesting one because Debian announced that Wayland will replace Xorg x11 in Debian 10 that is due in 2019

Is it possible Sid could have that replacement this early?

So much continues to change with Debian... Makes me wonder how much longer VSIDO will be Sid or even around

That's really sad. I wouldn't like to see Vsido vanishing.

I'm not happy with the Wayland switch either, that means that daily drivers in my workflow like fluxbox, urxvt, dmenu, rofi, xcalc and all the Xresources, xdotool, xbindkeys, xset, etc... tweaks and tricks will render useless. I'm not against evolution and changes, but the alternatives I'm seeing are not appealing at all at least for now. Also I'm pretty sure that the transition wayland+X support won't be short or smooth.

Interesting. Similar flat-bottom and flat-ends kinda jon boats were once popular boats amongst fishermen in my area to fish inside the inner waters of the galician rias. They were called "chalana". You don't see them often there days. Well, most old fishermen's boat types have almost disappeared, actually. There's a small movement in Galicia trying to recover traditional boats. But still not a big thing  unlike the east coast were these kind of initiatives are much bigger, popular and successful.

I haven't go fishing in years. But spent three weeks in my homeland up north (it's been a while since I had proper holidays!) One of my sisters and I went fishing almost daily. I think the old bug is biting again. Just a few days back home and eager to go fishing again.

It was mostly horse mackerel, loads of chub mackerel and some varieties of seabream in the low activity mackerel periods (for some reason, at least in that area, where you find horse m, there's chub m. around too). Horse mackerel gets active at night. They use come up close to the surface to eat, but when they're not active even all along the night, chub mackerel seems hungry at all times.   ;)

It's curious that those two spices are called mackerel in English. Here we call them different and consider the so called horse mackerel not a mackerel at all. Just a distant relative.

BTW, anyone kayak fishing at sea around here? My sister and I are kicking around the idea of getting a pair for the next summer.
