Linux users unite! - Page 29

post #421 of 427

Started using Red Hat and Mandrake back in middle school, then switched to Debian 64 bit in high school when I built my first 64 bit PC. Right before going to college, I switched to using Gentoo. To this day, my main PC still runs Gentoo, but the other machines run Arch since I didn't want to "micro maintain" all of my machines.

just found this thread, yeay!! I'm thrilled to join in.

 

I've been a Linux user since 2007, all started out with Ubuntu and after some distro hopping (who doesn't, right?) I finally landed at the OpenSUSE part of the galxy. working with it for two years now, and thinking about going over to tumbleweed...

already have a question:

anyone here using streaming to an A&K DAP? got the AK240 next to me, and I don't want to use WINE to get the MQS streaming... maybe with mpd? but then I'd have to use pulseaudio...

me too, @WayneWoondirts just told me about this thread.

 

Ubuntu Server here with mpd and upmpdcli for playing music, on an old Atom D510 with a linear power supply.

I appreciate freedom from USB Audio proprietary drivers.

 

All my servers are debian/ubuntu.

My two htpcs are Kodi Linux (again, an ubuntu derivative).

 

Cheers!

I am a recent convert - running OpenSUSE leap beta at the moment. On both my deskop and laptop. Might make the jump to Fedora when 23 is released in a few weeks time. I enjoy gnome.

 

What music players are you all using? I really like Quodlibet. It isn't quite Foobar but it's ability to handle big libraries, custom tags and the panel display make it a good fit. The only thing I truly miss from Foobar is ability to browse by cover and discogs tagger but to be honest the panel lay out is probably more functional.

Leap, nice. I expect great things from it, why do you want to jump to fedora?

I'm using mpd with cantata as client. lightweight and flexible. also has DSD support

Cowsay quotes from the Great Turtle, through vim-startify.

 

Sometimes Futurama quotes come out.

 

And then sometimes, Koans come out.

 

Files with fortune cookies for Futurama can be found here. I'm also using fortune cookies with Dhammapada quotes. The koans are from a Perl module on CPAN, and contains (most of?) everything from the Shaseki-shu, the Gateless Gate, and the Blue Cliff. You can find all of them together, bundled with a wrapper script, zen, that helps with printing to the terminal, over here. This is separate from fortune. I shuffle between zen and a separate script, fort, which shuffles between futurama and dhammapada quotes for fortune:

$(shuf -n 1 -e zen fort) | cowsay -W 80 -f turtle

 

One can then set it as a custom header for startify.

let g:startify_custom_header = map(split(system('$(shuf -n 1 -e zen fort) | cowsay -W 80 -f turtle), '\n'), '"   ". v:val') + ['']

 

If you want to work on koans, for whatever reason, but find yourself struggling to make a habit of it, this is a novel approach.
