    Which Linux Distro is best for beginners?

    Yes, but a new user won't know how to change their desktop environment or alter how it looks. In most cases they would be using its default look and feel.

    I'd pick Linux Mint Cinnamon over Ubuntu as its layout and UI design is similar to that of Windows.

    Gaming on Linux is awesome

    Some gamers prefer the flexibility and customizability of Linux and PCs in general over the ease of use that console provides due to its, often at times, limited nature on how it can be used.

Click the following link: https://sourceforge.net/projects/mx-linux/files/Snapshots/ and scroll down until you see a file called MX-19.2_August_386.iso , it should be the fifth option. Click on it and it would automatically download onto...

Whonix is designed to run on two virtual...

    Seven days with gnome.

    I prefer window managers alone. But as a desktop environment goes, gnome is pretty keyboard centric and it at least tries to be something different than emulating what is seen on Windows or MacOS.

    USB Booting Problems

    If I am not mistaken, Windows is not able to detect Linux specific file systems such as ext4. In order to remove them, you would have to boot into a live environment on Linux (the first thing you are shown in the majority of distributions before installation) and erase or partition your...

    Try to launch the Synaptic Package Manager, on the left panel you would see an option for Status, left click it and go onto Broken Dependencies. Once there click on the red blocks located to the left of each of the names of the packages. Once that has been done, there should be an option...

    No Wifi !! found with Linux on Win10 intel PC

    I was listing to him alternatives that he could have done to solve his issue rather than going to WSL. I would rather of him know of it rather than letting him think that there was nothing else he could have done. Most popular chip makers such as Realtek, Intel and to a lesser extent Broadcom do...

    No Wifi !! found with Linux on Win10 intel PC

    You could have either bought a compatible wifi adapter or looked into the Additional Drivers program on Ubuntu and see if there wasn't a proprietary or unofficial open source driver available for your card. Additionally you could have ran the command: lscpi | grep -i wireless into the terminal...

    Hello fellow comrades

    Hello everyone. This might be a late welcome but I didn't see this on the forums initially. Anyways I have used Linux within a virtual machine since last summer and on bare metal during late December of last year.

    Screen Tearing

    Have you installed AMD's open source graphics driver. I have two solutions that might work. The first one is a bit harder but shouldn't produce a performance hit. Using a text editor of your choosing, open /etc/profile.d/kwin.sh then proceed to add the line: export KWIN_TRIPLE_BUFFER=1. Check...
