Why certain apps can't lock to dock

@vinoman Are you using Plank with openbox ?!?! (It is the default one if you didn’t change it.)

I don’t know about the gui options since I am not using Plank currently but you can add the apps you want to lock into launcher folder in configs. That does work. See here for details,

Cannot install Kuser

Strange how they, gnome and others try so hard to reinvent the wheel entirely, instead of just improving an already promising thing.

One jack headset not working as intended in Linux

Well, it still uses the laptop’s integrated microphone :P
I don’t think I will ever find a way to use the headset’s microphone in Linux. I have been waiting for years for the feature and finally decided to ask about it. Doesn’t seem like I’m going to have any luck with this though.

Issues regarding the forums
The Discourse forum engine

I don’t know how configurable is NodeBB, so I cannot judge that. The generic theme of NodeBB doesn’t seem to be as problematic.

In the Antergos forum the main issue seems to be the double upper bar, taking too much real estate. Likely it will also look better without some panels on the right. Still the default Discourse feels much more confortable.

Nevertheless, if you need help just let me know. I have themed web-forums before and they looked very clean, as you can test in this forum and in this wiki. Futhermore they inspired the hole Ubuntu origami look and feel.

I’m very interested in Antergos feeling welcoming to people, and seeing how it ends. Arch development seems far better than in other distributions, and the Antergos desktop configuration seems the closest to what I think it would be the best.

Why do people hate systemd?

I’ve read some more about this and can understand more the difficulties around systemd. These are technical and not political though.

I also have an issue with it: the logs. Because they are in binary format it’s not easy to use external tools to analyse these, without the help of systemd. Binary also means prone to corruption, which could easily mean that whole log files aren’t accessible because of a part of the file being corrupted. And what if there’s an issue with systemd? Will that cause the log files not be accessible and make it harder to pinpoint the cause of the issue?

I’ve also read about not-friendly behaviour towards bug reports. The size of the project, which makes it harder to find and solve bugs, more because of different people working on different parts on the project and not being aware of each others work. I’m not sure how true these things are though.

Edit: I just saw that here’s an interesting read about the log files, which lists Lennart’s arguments of the improvements over text based logs. See here:

DEEPIN [Antergos Community Edition]

Confirmado, el tema del icono del disco duro del dock (ahora que Deepin File Manager es estable) es algo tan sencillo como montar un disco duro (poner el password y ya se montan el resto) y tener unos iconos “compatibles”. Con algunos temas de iconos sale el icono de discos duros (Deepin, Elegant-D, Marea,…) y con otros no. Con Numix no sale.

Novedad: dtkwm 0.3.3-1 (buscar en pamac) Deepint Tool Kit (Dtk) is the base devlopment tool of all C++/Qt Developer work on Deepin.

Canviar idioma i disposicio de teclat del gnome


Suposo que no només el Gnome, sinó que tindràs tot el sistema en anglès.

Per afegir el català has de:

Editar el fitxer /etc/locale.gen i descomentar (treure el ‘#’) de la línia que diu ca_ES.UTF-8 UTF-8 Executar la comanda sudo locale-gen

Ara tens ja els dos idiomes, però tens l’anglès per defecte. Si vols canviar el sistema a català has d’editar el fitxer /etc/locale.conf per què quedi així:


Per canviar-ho a Gnome (disposició de teclat, llengua, …) pots fer-ho des del gnome-control-center (Fes alt+F2 i escriu gnome-control-center)

Ein CPU-Kern auf 100% beim Systemstart

Hallo Leute,

Ich habe seit einiger Zeit das Phänomen, dass meine CPU beim Systemstart in einem Kern komplett ausgelastet ist und die anderen kaum verwendet werden. Ich habe schon versucht den Prozess (mit htop) zu finden, der diese Auslastung verursacht, allerdings habe ich nichts auffälliges entdeckt. Mir ist auch aufgefallen, dass der Kern schon vor der Anmeldung mit lightdm auf 100% ist (dafür habe ich im tty mit htop nachgesehen, bevor ein DE geladen wurde).
Bisher hat es mir als Workaround geholfen den Rechner einfach neuzustarten, danach werden alle Kerne gleichmäßig genutzt (was mich etwas verwirrt, da ein Reboot und ein Boot in dieser Hinsicht doch relativ ähnlich sein sollte oder?)

Kennt jemand das Problem und hat eine Idee woran das liegen könnte und wie man das beheben kann?

Hier noch ein paar Informationen:
Mein Prozessor ist ein Intel Core i7-6700
Mein System ist auf dem neusten Stand (hab also Kernel 4.12.3-1-ARCH)

Danke schonmal im Vorraus
– Talvi

Hola tengo una duda con clamtk


A ver… te dice “posibles amenazas”. Los xba són macros de libreoffice, y claro, las macros… ya se sabe. De todas maneras todas esas macros bienen por defecto con libreoffice, o sea que yo no me preocuparía.

Al final aparecen algunos exploit CVE, eso significa que se conocen algunos “bugs” que se podrian aprovechar para algun tipo de “daño” en tu sistema. Para saber exactamente de qué se está hablando debes buscar dicho exploit, por ejemplo

Ah, y los trojan te está avisando que hay javascript dentro del documento pdf, pero esto también puede ser la mar de normal.
