  1. Default Hello from Linux

    Linux Mint 14 x64 + Cinnamon installed.

    Now I just need to...:
    - compile ruby and python (ruby downloading soooo slooooowwwww)
    - Finally decide between emacs and vim (though I'm leaning vim)
    - Get Xinerama working with my dual head setup. Right now monitors are mirrored
    - sudo apt-get install git
    - compile some of my own code with gcc for the hell of it
    - Find a project on github to contribute to
    - Learn how to compile windows software on linux
    - Find a decent password manager

    Any of you guys ever used linux? Thoughts?

    you lost me at hello. but hello to you too

  3. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I prefer vim more than emacs for sure. Emacs is always like 3+ button awkward hotkeys if you want to do stuff

    For the windows apps...gotta either use wine or get a virtualization thingy.

    Also have fun customizing your environment! There's a looooooooot of cool things you can do.

    fiel@fiel-MS-7681 ~ $ vim hello.rb
    fiel@fiel-MS-7681 ~ $ ruby hello.rb
    The program 'ruby' can be found in the following packages:
     * ruby1.8
     * ruby1.9.1
    Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>
    fiel@fiel-MS-7681 ~ $
    wtp ruby, I just compiled you. Why you no run.

    EDIT: Aha, found it!

    Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I've used a number of Linux systems (CentOS, RH, Ubuntu, SUSE, etc) for work and they're fantastic. I'm not nearly as fluent as I should be, but thank fully there's a ton of sources that a quick Google can always fix the problem.

    I strongly dislike both EMACS and VIM. I just use Eclipse for everything... in Windows or Linux.

    I'm always a little bit ashamed that I don't use Linux at home, but I've never had the time to make a permanent switch and commercial things still don't have a Linux equivalent.

  6. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    vim, if you can only choose between either of those.

  7. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    What would you choose otherwise?

    It's Linux. I can choose anything I want.

  8. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I have the most experience with Eclipse (because I needed to use that specifically for my first class and I just stuck with it). I also like Notepad++ and gedit, to an extent.

  9. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I SSH to a Linux terminal for all my coding assignments, but that's about it. I love the file system, I love having a C/C++ compiler built in, and I love threading and forking on Linux. But I need my Visual Studio, Microsoft Office, and games, so I stick with Windows for personal computing.

    I only use vim (between vim/emacs) when there's nothing else available. Can't code comfortably without folding, syntax highlighting, and auto indent. I mostly use VS and Notepad++ / gedit on Linux.

  10. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    Did you pick Mint because it ~feels like Windows~? On my Windows machine I use Sublime Text 2 rather than Notepad++. I haven't tried gedit but it looks promising. If you're using GCC, I suggest getting 4.8.0 (as it's the newest release). Hell maybe you'll finally get to play around with dat C++11. Also, what stopped you from contributing to github before! If you used KeePass like me, you can use as it is similar and a port. Also you can actually get MinGW (with the windows.h header and all) in Linux, though I don't know how that works. You can use Wine as well.

  11. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    In many of the other things that I eventually became good at, I started off small and simple. Then, small and simple wasn't enough for me, so I started creating my own stuff until I moved deeper into the language. It'll be the same way with Linux. I have tried to go to Linux before, but I had many problems with getting the AMD drivers to work. This time around - no such problems.

    What stopped me from doing stuff with git before? Ignorance, and almost all tutorials are written for linux for git. All of the cool things I wanted to do had default tutorials in Linux and it became 10x harder to do in Windows.

    And no, I picked Mint because that's the go-to beginner Linux distro. I picked Cinnamon because it ~feels like Windows~.

    Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I use Lubuntu for my netbook<3
    Even tho I don't use it for coding it makes my work so freaking easy and my netbook. 99999x faster
    Maybe only misinformed.
    If you have ever used an android device, then you have used Linux, as Linux is the very core of the Android system.

    i meant i'm terrible at making heads or heels about coding and/or anything related (i do know of linux and ubuntu for example, but only the name and what people have said of them)

    Keepass has a version that runs on Mono, which I suspect might be one option to go about porting Windows app over to Linux.

    Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I feel this thread is relevant to my interests and career choice, but then my procrastination and chronic boringness kicks in simultaneously.

  17. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    I have VM I use at work running Mint/Cinnamon. I have troubles with the VM and Mint's "hot spot" so I have to disable it to even function.

    I am familiar with git, as well as compiling ruby and python on linux. My minecraft/web server runs off of opensuse (which I am liking less and less every day)

    If you asked me 1 year ago if I knew anything about Linux, I would tell you I know the basics. I now know some pretty..intermediate stuff, but I am in no way a pro. One step at a time.

    I suggest Keepass as well, however mono is a pain in the plantain to install sometimes. This might also be due to my noobiness.

  18. Default Re: Hello from Linux

    Don't like IDEs I guess?

    Assuming you mean C or C++, sounds like a pain. Why would you want to do that?

    Use a GUI like Git Extensions or SourceTree and you won't need to learn arcane commands, just how it works as a DVCS. The basic workflow is quite similar to what you would use with SVN.

    I have an Ubuntu VPS that I host on and a KUbuntu VM on my computer that I use as a QA environment to test code changes and software upgrades before putting them on the server. Most development and testing is done in Windows.

    Just install the Mono package. If you need a newer version than what's in your distro's repository, then that might be a pain, but otherwise it shouldn't be different from installing anything else.

    I just got my Raspberry Pi in the mail today and put Raspbian on it. Haven't done anything yet besides make, but I'm pretty excited about the possibilities.

    Ubuntu was great when I wanted to quit Maple
