Pacman throwing up errors after full system upgrade:

I did a full system upgrade about two weeks ago and since then cannot upgrade system again!

when i try to upgrade, pacman is throwing errors like this:

kauth:
/usr/lib/cmake/KF5Auth/KF5AuthToolsTargets-noconfig.cmake already
exists in filesystemkauth:

I googled for a solution but cannot find a working solution.

Switching To Linux Has Made Gaming.. More Fun?

Switching To Linux Has Made Gaming.. More Fun?:

I don’t know why I felt like sharing this and I wouldn’t blame you if you decided to scroll right past it, but I do feel like sharing it so here you go:

Am I the only one who has found PC gaming is actually more fun on Linux?

How would having less games to choose from be more fun right?

And why would games be any more or less fun to play on a different OS?

It kinda sounds illogical, but weirdly that’s been my experience.

Last year while I was still on Windows, I was increasingly feeling bored of gaming and had a total lack of interest in the games available. I wasn’t seeing much that looked particularly appealing to me.

I switched to Linux shortly after the “Proton Bombshell” was dropped by Valve, it was what gave me the confidence to make the leap, after investigating my own game library and finding the majority of games in my library ran natively or via Proton.

Since switching to Linux, I’ve become a bit ‘invested’ I guess you could say in Linux gaming’s future, I’ve really ‘joined the team’, and I’ve taken to buying games that have native Linux ports as a way of supporting the game devs that support Linux.

Seeing a game has a native Linux port is a bit of motivation for me to give it more consideration than I would in the past, so I’ve been buying more games, games I wouldn’t have bought before because I didn’t have enough interest in them.

Hence I’ve been playing more games too, games I would have never played before, and enjoying games I would have never expected to enjoy.

The games I’m seeing on Steam are also different to before, now I have my store preferences set to only show me games with native Linux ports, there are games on the front page I would have never seen before.

And is it me, or are games that run natively on Linux, usually better?

Maybe not in terms of budget and graphics, but usually better gameplay. Not because they run on Linux natively, that’d be silly, but I just mean generally the quality of gameplay in a game developed for multiple OSes is usually better than a game only developed for Windows?

I’m starting to think perhaps the reason why is because a game made by a game developer willing to support more platforms and more stores, especially something as still pretty niche as Linux, is a game developer that cares more about customer satisfaction than purely ROI decision making, and hence puts more effort into the quality of their gameplay as well for the same reason, and maybe that’s why those games are better on average?

Even if I switched back to Windows at this point, I think I’d still aim for those Windows/Linux/Mac games because of this discovery.

There’s also a lot of excitement in the Linux gaming crowd whenever a new big game comes out, rather than before on Windows where you just simply expect every new big game to be available, because why wouldn’t it be. It kinda makes you pay attention more to new games and get a bit more excited if they’re available to play. There’s also a lot more ‘community’ in Linux gaming.

So yeah…

Since switching to Linux, weirdly with fewer games on offer, I’ve found myself buying and playing more games, more excited about the games I’m getting, and enjoying better games, .. so I’m weirdly having more fun than before.

Anyone else had that experience?

Drowning windowed mode

Drowning windowed mode:

Hi everyone.

I need Drowning to run in windowed mode. Since the game is built with Unity, the game provides a configurator but no in-game options. I can select the resolution and the windowed mode, so when the game runs, i see the game window as i selected before, but then the game resize the window to fullscreen mode automatically and i can’t do anything about it.

I tried setting these launch options:

-popupwindow -screen-width 1280 -screen-height 800 

The first gives no changes.

The other two force the main window to 1280×800 resolution, but then again the game resizes the window to 1920×1080 fullscreen.

There is no config file inside the game directory, the only one is boot.config but is empty.

I see that everytime i run the game, the configurator “resets” the resolution to 1920×1080.

Thank you for the support.

VOTING POLL: Geany editor – Wrap search on by …

VOTING POLL: Geany editor – Wrap search on by default?:

Hi guys,

I find it absurd that Geany does not carry out wrap search by default, IMHO.

I know you can change the settings/preferences but the point is: it really should be enabled by default.

Now… I have contacted the devs (https://github.com/geany/geany/pull/2109) and apparently they need see some stats in order to implement that.

So if you use the Geany editor and use wrap search all the time, let us know in the GitHub thread https://github.com/geany/geany/pull/2109 if you want wrap search enabled by default.

Cheers!

ps: I’m sorry for the name ‘voting’ poll, this is just a poll…

How do I change the icon for a file type?

How do I change the icon for a file type?:

Linux Mint 19.1 x64 Mate, Mint-y theme.

I would like to change the icon displayed for .zip files (or all compressed files) as displayed in the file manager. (Caja)

How can I do that? (or point me to a page that I can try and learn from)

Thanks for any input, cheers.

X11 won’t work on Antergos Linux (arch derivative):

It all started when I tried to prevent screen tearing in my Budgie Desktop. I created a new /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d folder, and created 20-intel.conf. I added my settings to it, and then, when I rebooted Linux, LightDM wouldn’t start. I tried using tbsm to open Budgie, but then I get an error from X. I’m on mobile, so I’ll only write the part I think matters.
Parse error on line 1 of section InputClass in file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d: “Identifier” is not a valid keyword in this section. I don’t think this is supposed to happen. I think this is a software bug, as online guides say that the “Identifier” keyword is mandatory. I’ve tried copying and pasting the one from /etc, and reinstalling the server, but to no avail. Please help me, as I have no idea how to fix this.
