I’ve tried many times to run games with lutris and it never worked - no game ever ran, they only spit tons of errors. So I found a better and easier way for myself - simply put the DXVK files in the directory with the exe file and run the game. That’s it - it works in 90% of the cases which is a lot higher percentage than trying with lutris or POL.


Right click on the exe, go to “open with…” and select “Wine Windows Program Loader”. This will set WWPL to be used for all EXE files. From there all he needs to do is to double click the EXE and it will install just like in Windows - no need for overrated disasters like Lutris or POL.


Recently pamac-classic was finally fixed and I was able to finally install pacman 6. Turns out that the paralel download function is even better than I thought. :D The update process happens so fast that I can’t even see what’s happening in the terminal. :D Speaking of which, I also noticed that the process “mkinitcpio -P” happens about twice faster than before. :D :D Bottom line - I love pacman 6! :D


From all DEs I’ve ever tried, only Cinnamon met my needs and requirements - highly customizable (almost limitless) and also this is the only DE that can run apps from any other DE whereas the other desktops can’t brag about the same.


How to add youtube to FF push notifications?

I was looking for an extension that would show me a notification one any of the channels I’m subscribed for uploads a new video but I couldn’t find any. Then I found that Firefox has “Notifications” setting but youtube isn’t in the list and IDK how to add it. Any suggestions on how to do that?..


It’s not hard, I’ve done it several times - especially when packing a large archive at maximum compression with p7zip (and the flags -mx --mmt=8; -mx means maximum compression level and mmt=8 means “use 8 threads”) - 30GB or larger. RAM goes 15-18 GB, the CPU goes at 100%. What’s interesing is that if I do the same in Windows, my PC will literally die and become useless whereas 100% CPU in Linux and I’m still able to use my PC normally as if I’m not doing anything. :D Which is why Linux is my main OS.


There is but it’s not easy. I’m using uBlock Origin’s filters to hide content in different websites and forums. For instance, this filter hides content from blocked users in that forum: www.kaminata.net##.post.has-profile:has([id^=“post_hidden”][class=“ignore”]) But as I said, it’s difficult to do it on your own. In order to have this filter I asked in uBlock Origin’s reddit and they gave me the filter. You’ll have to ask them to register here on lemmy.ml for them to see how it works in order to give you a working filter.


I just tried my theme on Thunderbird and it works perfectly! Which IMO is a good thing for what Mozilla have done - thus we won’t have to create a separate theme for Thunderbird. :D


I already have userchrome.css. And that code did it! Thanks very much! :D


FF 89 - remove cyan border around the URL bar?

Does anyone know a way to remove or at least change the color of that cyan border around the URL bar? I’d prefer to remove it but if that’s not possible, a change of color would be nice. …


Octopi - how to make it display only packages waiting for update?

Hi. I wanna make octopi behave as close as possible to what pamac was, meaning that I want it to display only the packages with available updates. Atm it displays all installed packages and on top of that it ignores the pacman.conf feature “ignorepkg” and displays waiting updates for packages that I…


I guess I’m one of the few who like the new shape of tabs. I only missed the compact mode but I found a way (on the internet) how to bring it back. Then I restored my old theme and uploaded it to Mozilla for sharing and I’m happy. :D Here’s my theme: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/dark-and-brownish-theme/


I switched to Linux 6 years ago when I first heard that Windows 7’s support will be ended. So I figured I’d better start using Linux, so that I’ve gotten used to it when Windows 7 dies. In time I found out that Linux does many things better and faster and so my love for Linux kept growing. Nowadays I do have a dual boot with Windows 7 but I keep the Win for only 1 thing: to reprogram the G-keys on my keyboard whenever I need (the software for that works only in Windows) which happens once in 6 months or so.

Funny thing is that when I first switched to Linux (Mint), there was a weird problem that caused the distro to think my 1 TB HDD was a “Picture CD” and what’s even funnier is that none of the linux gurus I asked could ever solve the problem. Eventually I solved it myself and started using Linux normally without restrictions.


I was finally able to fix my profile and now I can return to Firefox. The thing I enjoy the most is that I don’t need to use Firefox Color anymore in order to have a dark or dark-ish interface. The purple interface is hot too!


Looks like nVidia are gonna headshot AMD… again. :D


Octopi doesn’t get along with GTK, so I avoid using it.


It’s out, yes, but updating pacman broke pamac-classic, so I’ve restored from a backup image and I’ve disabled updates for pacman and all packages related to package management (just in case) until the problem is solved. I’m using pamac-classic as just a visual update notifier. After the update of pacman pamac-classic wouldn’t start (doesn’t show up in tray) and without it I can’t know when there’s an update available, so I did the only thing I could - restored from backup and disabled updates for anything related to package management.


I downloaded hexchat, added the server address for libera.chat and at first it seems to be connected but then for unknown reason the remote server disconnects me. Any ideas?



I’ve tried that (clean profile) when FF was v86. Mediafire still wouldn’t let me in, that’s how I discovered it was a browser problem and not an extension problem.


Sounds good. Gamivo and kinguin did let me in but mediafire still doesn’t. Unfortunately ever since they disabled the feedback feature, I have no way to report this problem to them and my only hope is that employees of Mozila might be reading this community here.

Google Chrome mediafire: https://i.imgur.com/QVyjZmZ.png

Mediafire is my secondary online backup for stuff and until Mozilla fix that problem with mediafire, for me there’s no reason to use Firefox. Don’t think I enjoy using Chrome (or Chromium), though, or that I’m hating and trolling Firefox. I’m not. But for the moment only Chrome works the way I need + it has extensions Firefox doesn’t have yet. Secondly: Firefox doesn’t recognize the instagram images as images whereas a Chrome extension does and I download and/or search them on TinEye a lot. But the moment these issues are fixed in Firefox, I will return to that browser. The reason I have subscribed for the Firefox community here is that I’m waiting for the version that will have these issues fixed. Hopefully until then someone would have written an extension to replace the removed function from the context menu - “view image details”.


Gamivo and Kinguin, mostly. Also mediafire. Mediafire keeps saying “this form has been idle for too long”. All the browsers that have some kind of track blocking have this problem with these sites, regardless of the engine. Only Chrome and Chromium don’t have that feature and I have absolutely no problems to login to my profile.


Sounds… disappointing, really. While the feature of track blocking sounds appealing at first, that feature is the main reason I abandoned Firefox (after 15 years of using it) and all FF-like browsers that have it. More and more websites stop functioning properly with tracking blocked and I can’t login to my profile. With these particular sites I have nothing to worry about tracking but unfortunately even with disabled tracking protection, they still refuse to let me log in. It’s unlikely that the websites would remove the tracking functions, so until the developers of FF and FF-like browsers find a way to circumvent this problem with logging in, I don’t see a reason for me or anyone else to use such a browser.


Small problem with applying themes to the website

I noticed that when a theme (“Darkly”, in my case) is applied after clicking “save” and then the user clicks somewhere else, for instance on “Communities”, the page becomes white again. One must refresh the page for the dark theme to be applied and become permanent. It’s not a big deal to me but som…


Limit the download speed from within the OS?

Hi, guys. I’m wondering if there’s any way to limit the download speed from within Arch? I have made settings for that in the router CP but they don’t seem to work bc Arch is completely ignoring them and keeps downloading with the full bandwidth it can get. …


[suggestion] Alphabetical sorting

Hi. Can you make the list of communities (https://lemmy.ml/communities) to be able to be sorted alphabetically? I wanted to view all of them alphabetically but when I clicked “Name”, nothing happened. Alphabetical sorting should include ascending and descending order and that applies for the other …
