Why should I use terminal applications?
 
05:32
Some comments on using terminal applications. Terminal apps are not memes; they're great tools for the customizability a poweruser nneds, but might not be for everyone. The terminal apps I rely on daily: - ranger: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlolvAVqn10 -mocp (For music) -mutt: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U3vRbF7v5A -newsbeuter (For rss feeds) -youtube-dl/youtube-viewer (For watching videos without a heavy browser) -ffmpeg (For video splicing and screen/audio recording) -calcurse (For a personal calendar) -There's also htop, which people really just use because it looks cool.

qutebrowser - All the Cool Kids should try it!
 
06:52
qutebrowser is an excellent, customizable and non-crappy keyboard/vim-based browser; it's a shame I don't hear people talking about it more! Try it! In this video I talk briefly about some cool little things I've done with it, custom searches and dynamic download directories, but there's a lot more to be discovered. Check out msjche's video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glfJJfTEB2g) for some of the basics, or just fiddle around yourself.

I switched to Void Linux, wew lad...
 
06:24
Been using Void successfully for a couple of days. I've moved my Parabola rice over and am enjoying what I'm seeing. Fast boot times, and only minimal trouble getting what I want installed. Void is a rolling release distro, which can be installed either with a desktop environment or in a minimalist install. This makes it similar in framework to Arch, but uses runit instead of systemd and xbps instead of pacman. --- Email me: [email protected] Send me donations via PayPal at [email protected] See my website: http://lukesmith.xyz

How I get 3TB of Storage on My Ultra Portable ThinkPad!
 
06:09
And who says you can't have a laptop that's both THICC and portable? I get three terabytes of storage space on my ThinkPad by having a 1TB SSD in the main hard-drive caddy and a 2TB drive in the removeable ThinkPad Ultrabase. Ultrabases are convenient for a lot of reasons, but you can also buy a slim hard-drive caddy to replace the CD/DVD drive. I did so and added these extra 2TB of storage, so I can store all of my movies and TV shows without the need for a dangling external drive. --- Email me: [email protected] Send me donations via PayPal at https://PayPal.me/LukeMSmith See my website: http://lukesmith.xyz

REVIEW: Thinkpad X200 (durable beast, less than $100)
 
08:06
Here I review the laptop I've been using for around a year: the Thinkpad X200. It's my favorite machine for a couple reasons: easily compatible with all free software, like other Thinkpads, easily repairable and customizable and is still compact and portable. All for only around $100; and I expect it to last quite some more time. Info about what I have in my machine: *Ol' fashioned Intel core duo *Half TB SSD (for Sanic-fast speeds) *8GB of RAM *Motherboard has been librebooted *Atheros wifi card (forgot exact model...) *And of course, trusty old Ganooooo slash Linocks

You can do a lot with Firefox that a lot of people don't know about. Here's a video showing my Firefox setup. I use both the VimFX add on for vim shortcuts and Stylish to easily modify the CSS of different websites, and Firefox's skin and theme itself. You can also use Stylish with Google Chrome (if you don't mind CCing everything directly to the NSA), but I don't believe you can modify the actual browser tabs/url bar etc., only websites.

Get My Arch Linux Ricing/Config Easy! (Smug + comfy edition)
 
04:20
I've written scripts that will automatically install my ricing on any fresh install of Arch Linux (should also work on non-fresh installs and possibly Manjaro and other Arch-like distros with AUR access). Here's how you do it. First, on your install as root, download my install script: curl http://lukesmith.xyz/longterm/luke1.sh > luke1.sh bash luke1.sh Once that's done, it'll've created a new user with a name of your choosing. Log on as that user and run the following: bash luke2.sh After that is done, the rice with be installed! Enter "startx" to start the graphical environment! Once you're in the graphical environment, hold Super (Windows key) and press u for info. I'll make a video guide soon. No warranty!! Lmao. Really though, I recommend you only use this on a fresh install unless you're willing to let something bend on the rest of your system. You can also check out the default config files we employ at http://lukesmith.xyz/longterm/lukerice.tar.gz
