  • Bluetooth connection issues

    I'm using bluez and blueman all updated and i get this error when connecting to multiple devices(DS4 controller, phone, earbuds). It says Connection failed: No audio endpoints registered. I have tried extensively to solve this but I can't seem to find the issue. I'm using arch linux. I've also used bluetoothctl to try and connect but didnt get an explicit error, it just didnt work.

    Bluez version: 5.75-1 Kernel: 6.8.5-arch1-1 Pulse version(this might or might not matter): 17.0

    Ask for anything, and thanks in advance for the help!

  • They can't rival the youtube app because if I want to have the same subscriptions on yt web I'm gonna need to subscribe on both apps. Revanced is perfectly fine for me

  • Reddit seem to have switched to the newer, even shittier UI by default.
  • My reddits suspended permanently but for some fucking reason they think I want to sign into reddit every time if fucking open it. I hate reddit

  • Lmao if someone comes at me with a gun I'm just gonna square up with them? It's not cowardly to want to arm yourself in case your life at risk.

  • least paranoid arch user
  • Yeah likely a p320 m18 or m17 in FDE. I didn't watch the video but he probably said that in the video aswell

  • Wine error when using virtual desktop

    Whenever I run any app, including winecfg, I get this error: 00a0:err:hid:udev_bus_init UDEV monitor creation failed 012c:err:winediag:nodrv_CreateWindow Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded. 012c:err:winediag:nodrv_CreateWindow L"The explorer process failed to start."

    This only happens after I enable the virtual desktop option in winecfg. I can't boot winecfg to turn it off even. How do I disable this in (system.reg)?

    Wine error when running Magellan VantagePoint

    I've got a magellan gps and I want to load some maps onto it. The only way to do so is with the magellan vantagepoint software. I ran the installer and there were no errors or any notable issues, but when I run the VantagePoint.exe file, it returns this error:

    Wine error: RtlpWaitForCriticalSelection

    I’m running arma 3’s launcher with wine, and I ran it on my last distro perfectly fine, but this doesn’t run at all for some reason. I’ve tried troubleshooting but nothing. It has something to do with wbemprox.dll which I can find and disable, but it doesn’t fix anything. The error message is: 0150:err:sync:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 7FC818A0 "../wine/dlls/wbemprox/table.c: table_cs" wait timed out in thread 0150, blocked by 0148, retrying (60 sec) 0120:err:sync:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 7FC818A0 "../wine/dlls/wbemprox/table.c: table_cs" wait timed out in thread 0120, blocked by 0148, retrying (60 sec) 0024:err:sync:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 7783112C "?" wait timed out in thread 0024, blocked by 0120, retrying (60 sec)

    GPS questions

    I picked up a two gpses for better accuracy when caching, and I haven't got to go to an open field, but I live in an urban environment and don't have a full view of the sky, but I just can't get more than 2 satellites connected to it. Is this because of the lack of sky view and is there a way to see the locations of gps satellites in the sky?

    edit: solved by waiting a long time under clear sky

    fall back!

    As the linux market share increases to 4%, arch linux will consistently keep coming in. Unfortunately, this will make arch harder to gatekeep, and eventually everyone will prefer arch. So we need a solution to this problem. And that is what I have! I propose that the distro gatekeepers of arch linux should fall back... to gentoo! Think about it, it's way harder to install for inexperienced users, and it compiles everything itself so it will test the patience of anyone we are trying to gatekeep.

    So what do we think?

    $LANG variable

    How do i set the $LANG variable without using export? I have set my locale.conf to LANG=en_US.UTF-8 but LANG is still always set to en_US which is not valid. I'd prefer not to use .bashrc or /etc/. Thanks in advance!

    Is gentoo Linux really worth it?

    I've installed gentoo but there seems like there's so many sacrifices. I love that it's all open source, but I really don't mind closed source software now and then, because after all I would be using it to play closed source games. The biggest compromise I've observed is the very long build times. I have a lukewarm cpu(i3 10100) and it's powerful enough for good gaming but the build times are still like 10x minimum for some software. All this to say, is using gentoo really worth it? I love the idea behind it, and if I was doing criminal activity I'd definitely use it, but is there some absolute upside to it or is it a really good OS for privacy that sacrifices in usability?
