multibootusb selection window moved root directories:

I was using multibootusb on mint 17.1 to load up a bunch of distros onto a usb flash drive. Launched from the menu, did not launch via sudo in terminal. Using the select image browse popup window I somehow sloppily dragged a /folder instead of selecting it and it moved the folder inside another one! May have been more than one, and I believe it was a lib* folder.

System is not happy with any new actions and cannot open up a new terminal. Existing terminal can’t find any commands in /bin. Tried to move the folder back using nemo, but permission denied. Can’t login as another user in a different session (ctrl-alt-f1). Stuck and not sure what to do besides reboot via a live usb and correct the move. Any ideas? I’m astonished that multibootusb could move folders like that in a selection dialogue without permission denied errors.

Divinity Original Sin 2 cannot coexist with a YouTube Video:

My entire rig struggles to play a youtube video and play divinity at the same time. I didn’t think either of these things were all that heavy on there own, but when their powers unite my shit starts to chug harder than a chu-chu train. This ONLY seems to happen with divinity on ANY conbination of graphics settings Low Medium Ultra it dosent matter. Im pretty sure its not my pc as windows handles this combination of video and game just fine. Please if anyone is out there, what am i doing wrong.

My laptop’s NVIDIA graphics card is enabled and selected but some games do not use it:

I’m running Ubuntu 18. I’ve made sure to install my graphics card correctly, and if I type in the command ‘prime-select query’ it says I’m using my nvidia graphics card and not my integrated intel one. If I go to settings and check details, it says that it’s using my nvidia graphics card. In nvidia settings it is selected to be used. So, it should be using this graphics card.

However, certain games do not seem to use it or have it as an option. For instance, in Civilization 6, it has a setting to pick which GPU to use but my nvidia gpu isn’t even an option. However in other games my graphics card will be used, so it seems that it is at least working some of the time?

Is there something I might be missing or something I should try?

GTA V runs GREAT. Loving this so much

GTA V runs GREAT. Loving this so much:

I’m running the social club version in Kubuntu 18.04. My specs are:

AMD FX 6350 cpu R9 390x video card

with Mesa 18.3.0 drivers

Whatever version of Vulkan that comes with this ppa https://launchpad.net/~paulo-miguel-dias/+archive/ubuntu/pkppa


Running the game in Lutris, I’m using 0.94 DXVK, esync-staging-pba-3.18-x86_64

Issues

I was having issues with it starting and it was solved by deleting the .part files in the GTA install directory.

I also had issues with a zlib error when I tried to start single player. Fixed by adding -verify to the start parameters in Lutris for the game (right click game in Lutris and go to configure)

Last issue I had was mouse movement being limited in-game. Solved by changing setting in-game, for mouse movement, to “windows”.

Did the first couple missions in-game with some high speed driving and my frames were great, no stutters or anything. I completely forgot I was playing on Linux. So excited

Question about debian stable security updates.

Question about debian stable security updates.:

Hi, i have been using linux mint for a year now and i want to migrate to debian now that i have some experience using linux. I dont have any technical knowledge about computers or programing so im planing to switch to debian stable since i dont want anything screwing up my system and stopping my workflow. For what i could find online, debian stable sometimes runs outdated versions of some software, but since i can use flathub for some apps i really need the latest versions i think its the right thing for me now. I was wondering if having outdated software somehow could be a security risk? I mean if i run outdated versions of some system components they could have some security holes that were fixed in later versions right? Or are security updates a different thing from version updates?

I repeat, i have 0 technical knowledge about these things, i just try to run as much free software as i can because of ethical concerns and because in my experience free software is always more work efficient for me.
