Recommended Linux Distributions In Brief

I tried too many Linux distributions such as Ubuntu, Elementary OS, Linux Mint, Manjaro, Clear Linux OS, Endeavor OS, Fedora, Debian, Deepin, Peppermint os, Pop! OS, Parrot OS, Kali linux, Void Linux, Gentoo, MX Linux, Zorin OS and CentOS. I was a distrohopper! After all those experiments and daily usage of different distros (short for distributions) with different desktop environments and package managers. I come to a point of view.

Cutefish Os in brief

Cutefish is an Arch-based Linux distribution which focuses on UI / UX. It is almost a Mac OS-clone (a.k.a Mac OS inspired). The desktop has the top bar with a global menu, and the bottom dock. It is Manjaro cutefish. If you want to check this Linux distribution, here is their official website.

Elementary OS in brief

ElementaryOS is a modern looking Linux distro. It is built on Ubuntu, a.k.a “based on Ubuntu”. Elementary focus on user experience and developers community. Elementary OS is focusing on the areas of problems which prevent Linux from being the common desktop operating system. Elementary tries to fix this bottleneck. Let’s discuss those things / ideas. Pay-what-you-want AppCenter Creating opensouce applications for Linux is not profitable at all. That’s a problem. Nobody will dedicate time and effort to create a free and opensource software.

Ubuntu in Brief

Ubuntu is the defacto standard of Linux distributions. I love Ubuntu with GNOME desktop environment. Ubuntu Look Ubuntu has a unique look. I can differentiate it by the brownish color of desktop UI, and the left long panel. I really think that putting the apps panel on the left is the best position as we need the vertical space more than the horizontal space. Stable & Reliable Ubuntu is based on Debian.

Pop Os in Brief

Pop! os is built on top of Ubuntu. So it is reliable and stable. Pop! OS is created by System76 which make sure that it has good support for gaming / Steam. Pop! OS has better support for gaming and laptop device drivers in comparison to other Linux distributions. Pop! Shop Pop! OS has an applications store that show applications from Ubuntu repo, Pop repo and Flatpak repo. So, you have access to more software tools and programs.

What is the difference between appcenter and appcenter (system-wide) in Elementary OS ?

It is very simple. If you chose appcenter (system-wide), the application will be available for all users on the system. But if you chose appcenter, the application you installed will be available for the current user only. This is a good option in Elementary OS. So if you want to install some apps for a user, and not for the other users YOU CAN. The slogan “YOU CAN” is the best slogan for Linux community.

Create and remove swap files in Ubuntu Linux

Computers use RAM to store data and run programs and services. So, the data / programs in RAM are temporarily available — as you use the program or data. When you shutdown your computer, RAM will be free. RAM is faster than HDD or SSD in read and write speed. So we use it to hold the currently running programs and data. But they are expensive, so we use less of them and rely on swap file to delegate some less used data / program to it.

rsnapshot HOWTOs Docs

rsnapshot is a filesystem backup utility based on rsync. Using rsnapshot, it is possible to take snapshots of your filesystems at different points in time. Using hard links, rsnapshot creates the illusion of multiple full backups, while only taking up the space of one full backup plus differences. When coupled with ssh, it is possible to take snapshots of remote filesystems as well. rsnapshot is written in Perl, and depends on rsync.

Linux Laptop Boot Battery Optimizations

Boot Optimization use sudo systemd-analyze critical-chain to get the most time consuming services. If you don’t need those services just disable them by this command sudo systemctl disable service-name.service and replace the service-name with the name of the service you want to disable. BIOS Optimization Just disable any feature you do not use such as fingerprint scanner. To reboot into your BIOS settings, use this command sudo systemctl reboot --firmware-setup.

Ubuntu boots to black screen after trying to install proprietary Nvidia graphics driver

The problem occured after installing proprietary Nvidia graphics driver using those commands. sudo apt-get update && clear && apt-cache search nvidia-[0-9] | grep 'binary driver' sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo apt-get install nvidia-340 nvidia-settings sudo nvidia-xconfig The fix is to let the built-in ubuntu-drivers program decide automatically which graphics driver to install. Open the terminal and type this command to update the apt repositories. sudo apt update Then, remove all packages started with nvidia using this command.
