installing KDE Plasma DE, could break Gnome or xfcce4?
when I installed Arch, I installed xfce4, but then I installed Gnome3.20, now there are thing about Gnome I don't like about it, and I'm thinking about replace Gnome with KDE (Plasma) with thekde Apps, to give it a try, so install KDE, test it and if everything is ok, them remove Gmone+extras...

but I don't wanna break Gnome or xfce4 in the proccess

+Lajos Pasztor not sure why you bring up gtk & qt theming; that should be the same issue regardless of DE or WM.

+Diego Terzano please do not suggest that to others here as Manjaro is not Arch Linux. Discussion of any derivative is not welcome here and goes against the rules.

Here is how I added google to it:

Lol so true. I'm on day 4 of installing Linux VFIO for a GTX 970 Passthrough as a service. Much has been learned, DIFFs have been patched, code has been compiled, nerves have been singed.

Almost there...

Does some know why grub is the recommended option and in the OS.iso syslinux is used?

As bootloaders go, syslinux is Tiny while still being configurable... it's a perfect and foolproof option for a simple job like booting up CD or USB. However when it comes to an actual install, grub is much more feature-full and capable of dealing with a wide array of Hardware configurations and other issues which makes it a better choice 4 an for an installed OS, especially for dual boot systems Etc

Finally Numix theme has full support for gtk+ 3.20, since so long only Arc theme was the one that had full support.

Now I can use my favorite theme on XFCE peacefully.

Install numix-themes-git from AUR to get latest git HEAD

+Sven Karsten Greiner Margins and paddings exactly were the problem. The gtk2 and gtk3 looks of numix were inconsistent, but now they are and it looks really great

I was hoping she had a charcoal colored cap (or other dark gray). I was going to have the logo put on in a black thread. Black on gray would have looked awesome too. She is Cary's Kids Embroidery on Facebook. She's pretty reasonable if anyone wants one.

I have been having problems with Comcast and recently set up a cron job that runs curl on google and checks whether it works and puts that in a log file. The log file is formatted like this:

F_1467244926
F_1467244987
F_1467245047
S_1467245101
S_1467245161
S_1467245221

F is for Failure
S is for Success
and the number is the Unix time

Is there an existing command to make a graph or something from something like this, or do I need to use awk or lua to convert it to CSV?

Probably overkill - but have you considered Smokeping? ISPs often use it to help diagnose inter-ISP latency issues.

I've set up Smokeping on my end to graph the full route out to my ISP's own mail servers, thereby showing that whatever problems I see are indeed my ISP's problem. Then separately, also doing ping graphs to popular hosts belonging to other local ISPs.

The great thing about smokeping is that it gives you a good sense of the quality of the connection in terms of packet loss , latency, as well as downtime.

Some of the older AMD cards are a pain to configure.
Some of you may have seen my post about my problems with graphics drivers, and this is what in the end fixed them.

Anyway, I want to save some other people time if they run into the same problem as I did.

I have linked a pastebin of my xorg configuration file. This is for a Radeon 6970 card (Cayman, Northern Islands). This took a while to get working fully.

To quickly load it, run this as root:

curl http://pastebin.com/raw/M3sFvVK9 > /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-radeon.conf

You should also have xf86-video-ati installed.
