  • mr bintsmonk
    i have an extra pc ( want to use it every weekend for linux testing)
    will be used in 2d drafting email & office suites & learning linux as well
    can you recommend an linux OS which is stable and fast?
    (no fancy ui or animations just simple interface)
    specs
    G3260
    8gb ram
    128gb ssd
    1tb hdd
    nvidia gtx 950
    vs 450
  • ^ hmmm..... stable..... there's no such thing as stable in open source.

    You can try ubuntu. Install it using ubuntu server iso then do a tasksel and select the Ubuntu Gnome Desktop.

    Or if you want to try a lightweight of it install the required xorgs then install openbox. This is that what you called no fancy ui or animations just simple interface
  • ok will try ubuntu server
    thanks

    question install ubuntu server iso and then install openbox?

    Ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 LTS <click here for link>


    there's no such thing as stable in open source.


    I have been using Ubuntu MATE for about a year now and, in my experience, it is stable in gaming (Core i7 4790K + GeForce GTX 970).

    I don't think Feral Interactive <click here for link> would make a lot of Linux ports of games if there is no stable Linux distro.


    Here are some of the many games available on Linux

  • Hi, question paano ba gamitin yung SFTP ng linux?

    example meron ako pc 192.168.1.2 tapos gusto ko mag sftp sa 192.168.1.3?

    gumagana kasi siya pag private local ng pc lang pero pag local to local ayaw.
  • ^
    what's your configuration, please paste here.

    Kung local to local lang yan walang problema yan kung tama configuration mo.
  • trying my luck building android 7.1


  • hmmm..... stable..... there's no such thing as stable in open source.


    so is the closed source, look at windows 10 updates, it literally crashes your OS on certain updates.

    same with applications.

    so as you say, there's no suck thing as stable, it will crash at some point, whether its open or closed source.
  • stable = old
  • Good day!!!

    planning to implement sana next year mag linux base mga computer dito sa office namin...

    anu po marerecommend niyo?

    karamihan ng computer system namin ganto ang specs

    intel dual core, intel pentium d, saka intel core2duo...
    memory ram yung iba nasa 2gb lang po...
    160gb hdd
    lahat onboard ang video
    onboard LAN lang din po...

    application they use
    word, excel, email outlook, BIR saka iba pang goverment software pero di ko kabisado ei...

    tsaka may mga antivirus din po ba na pang linux?

    need your recommendation po...

    thanks and more power...

    I'll not prefer linux on your office.

    dito pa lang eh
    BIR

    Mapapa-run mo kaso there's some dll dependencies that is required.

    If you had some accounting/government software applications that only run at windows platform too think again.

    plus nega factor is the users, maninibago sila sa libre office. Lalo na yung formatting. So need mo sila i-orient para di sila mapa WTF.

    Example yung template nila sa ms excel tapos pagnagbago yung format or di supported yung formula magiging problema mo pa yan and you'll be in deep shit.


    I'd been there, done that. Finished the test desktop project in a month because of the FU--ING government applications.

    Pero its up to you if you wanted to pursue that project of yours. If you survive, that's a big achievement and pat your shoulder and said this to yourself "GREAT JOB"

    by the way. Linux doesn't need anti-virus. You'll only need to hardened linux and set some IT policy restrictions on your office.

    ^ahh ganun po ba? salamat sa info sir... baka yung dalawang computer lang na gumagamit ng goverment apps lang ang gagawin kong windows na lang..

    ^ kanina po nag install ako ng ubuntu saka mate.. try lang muna ako sa dalawang computer saka sa mga ka coworkers ko kung sino gusto nila... para pag dating ng december sana magamay na nila... pero ako muna ang gagamay at mangangalikot dito bago sila.. para ma orient ko na din po sila just in case na gustuhan nila...

    - regarding sa mga goverment apps siguro yung mga users lang nun ang hindi ko gagawing linux base...
    na try ko din kanina from windows MS Excel papuntang Ubuntu 16.10 nagloko ang format nung rates na ginawa sa MS Excel, pero nung inopen ko ulit siya naging OK naman... wala akong ginawang updates or any.. just close lang and open... anu kaya possible nangyari? nag update ng kusa? or flexible na si LibreOffice5?
    - ang di ko pa po natry from Ubuntu to Windows Excel file... experiment pa ako...

    Pero its up to you if you wanted to pursue that project of yours. If you survive, that's a big achievement and pat your shoulder and said this to yourself "GREAT JOB"

    ^ thanks po sir... share ko din dito pag success ang implementation ko dito sa office namin... pwera lang dun muna sa may gumagamit ng goverment apps.. hehe...

    ^ay hohonga po sir hindi na pala need niyan AV... pag aaralan ko pa po yung mga ganyan sir... wala ako idea about dun sa mga Ports na naka Open daw eh... may nagsabi lang sa akin...

    last question meron po bang script para sa gantong command? para oneclick na lang automatic na...

    sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get distribution-update && sudo apt-get autoremove -y


    thanks po...

    gawa ka lang sa vi or sa nano editor then save as yourfile.sh

    #!/usr/bin/bash
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update
    apt-get distribution-update
    apt-get autoremove -y

    then make it as executable.

    execute it on your cli or right click in your gui and run it as cli

    yung sa MS Office formatting nagbabago talaga. So wala tayong magagawa dyan. From the scratch ang mangyayare.

    ^ay hohonga po sir hindi na pala need niyan AV... pag aaralan ko pa po yung mga ganyan sir... wala ako idea about dun sa mga Ports na naka Open daw eh... may nagsabi lang sa akin...

    di lang ports that you'll secure

    pati yung kung ano lang ang pwedeng gawin ng user sa account nya.


    So good luck in your big project.

    ^ahh sige po sir.. salamat po dito... ibang iba talaga pag gawa ng script sa windows saka linux...

    ^ honga napansin ko din... kasi yung formulas sa excel nabago sabi nung co worker ko... check pa namin kung anu mga pwedeng gawin...

    di lang ports that you'll secure

    pati yung kung ano lang ang pwedeng gawin ng user sa account nya.

    ^ ah ok po... pag aralan ko pa anu anu mga pwedeng implement kung sakaling naka linux na lahat...

    So good luck in your big project.

    ^thanks sir.. sa ngayon 2 co workers ko gusto na mag ubuntu yakkety 16.10... nag DL din ako ng Mate 16.10...

    - nakaka ilang DL na ako para lang makakuha ng exact result nung SHASUMS... dito lang ako natatagalan... T_T

    You can configure ubuntu to auto-update on install. No real need for the script.

    Kawawa nga lang yung connection nyo if you do that across a fleet of PC's. Best to set up a caching proxy server for apt-get (I used apt-cacher NG for this) so that if one starts an update, it'll get cached on
    the proxy server, and others doing the same will pick it up from the local network instead of going out on the internet.

    It would entail a little more set-up time per PC, but is well worth the speed trade off in the long run.

    - sakto lang po kasi ang computer dito sa mga user namin.. pag may nasira saka lang bibili ng bago..
    - simula nung dumating ako dito ilan lang ang computer nila, tapos nung narepair ko yung iba, na pag piyesa piyesahan ko, nagkaroon na ng mga computer yung mga dating user na sobrang luma na...
    - ngayon hahanap at mag aassemble ako ng computer kung may ma sasalvage pa... hehe...
    - thanks po sir sa tips...
