I can't change my /home location, and it's driving me mad

For the past week, I’ve been trying to switch my /home partition from my 500GB nvme to my 1TB sata ssd. I’ve been asking and receiving help from people in my previous post, but I keep hitting wall after wall in making it work and I seem to be missing a step....

  • chmod : change mode
  • chown : change owner
  • -R : recursive. So all subfolders and files will change ownership.
  • 700 : this is a code for files permission for those 3 groups in linux :
  • user (you) : 7
  • group : 0
  • other : 0

What do those number mean ? A file can be read, written, executed. Those 3 permissions are associated with number :

  • read : 4
  • witten : 2
  • executed : 1

If a file can be read and written its number will be 4+2 = 6

There is some drawback. The main one : app can’t communicate with each other.

Example firefox and his extension keepass. As keepass can’t communicate with firefox, you have to open both apps and switch their windows.

You can use flatseal to manage communication between apps but that’s not an easy process and may prove a security issue if you don’t understand the technical jargon.

Thank for the information. i didn’t know since i use vanilla os :)

Sorry, the closest i came up aren’t good solution but may help in your search.

  • Vanilla OS 2 (based on Debian) but it is under Gnome DE and in beta phase. Very begginer friendly. Maybe once it go out from beta it will supports other DE ? So check it around 6th month later or 1 year ?

But the problem is that their community is very small. If you want something stable, it’s better to look for bigger community so you can benefit from their support and user’s problems

There is fedora kinoite but you don’t want anything related to IBM. That was the best compromise i can found.

  • NixOS but i don’t know it. I’m affraid it will be a DIY distro at the beggining with the config file. But it will probably meet all your criterias.

Or the same OS from my steamdeck :

  • Steam OS ? It’s an immutable OS based on Arch and support KDE by default. Full support of flatpaks. Only downside, i dunno if it supports other machines than the steamdeck. Nor if it uses the latest linux kernel. Maybe some variants ?

Dark Soul serie. After dying for the nth time i gave up. I don’t have enough time to red again and again the same path.

Getting over it, well it do save your progression, especially your mistake.

Subnautica and amesia. I fear void place and it’s too scary.

i think humanoid robot are inefficient. We shouldn’t follow the blueprint of human body but give them legs and arms that are suited for mechanical move and metal structure so they are easier to maitain and repair.

Even if Mozilla don’t have a huge marketshare, they were behind Rust language. :)

How to let my kids find quality games on Android? Right now they only find the pay to win / ad riddled games.

My 9yo daughter has a tablet with family link, so I can monitor what apps she wants to install. As the garbage games are mostly at the top free, she keeps asking for games that I reject, in most cases because it’s riddled with ads....

It’s not easy finding good game, harder for young kid :

  • Andor’s trail
  • Room
  • Mindustry
  • Mindtest, control may not be good
  • Milo milo, can’t recall its name but its a puzzle
  • Dragon quest
  • Broken age
  • Machinarium (and all anamita game)

I have started cyberpunk 2077 thenkcontinued with its new update. The game is great, very good dialog. I’m enjoying it a lot on my steamdeck. :)

However, there is few issue as cyberpunk universe is tied to the old cyberpunk’s concepts/ideas from the 90s, too much trash and sexual ads.
