It’s hardly able to do the things that it is trained on

I have a UX3404VA_Q420, which is a fairly new Raptor Lake model. Mine also whiffs sleeping sometimes, so three things that I did were -

  1. (optional) make the keyboard backlight sleep , …joplinusercontent.com/…/oOunhKjHNLSyvAIH9wpjSY
  2. tell systemd to re-try sleeping, …joplinusercontent.com/…/lnLsgnRopyMIo7MjmzrqaO
  3. bind a hotkey to suspend. If I hit that, let it sleep, and then close the lid then it’s pretty certain that the laptop is really asleep.

If nothing else, run weston. It’s not an amazing wayland server, but it’s something.

Master PDF Editor is on Flathub. If anything can be installed as a flatpak, I would try that first. If a program fits in a sandbox, consuming the files that I give it and drawing in its own little window, Flatpak has that down cold. If a program wants the ability to stick its hands into the guts of other programs and system services and shared libraries - that should happen at the distro level or not at all.

I feel that Debian has been having a painfully slow stable cycle, but now that it just tipped over into a brand-new stable release people are checking it out again. You can reasonably try it out and expect it to just work on new-ish hardware, without having to hunt down hardware enablement kernels or whatnot.

Windows 11 vs Ubuntu vs Fedora 39 vs Arch Linux - Speed Test! (youtu.be)

Even though different Linux distros are often fairly close in terms of real-life performance and all of them have a clear advantage over Windows in many use cases, we can’t reject the fact that Arch Linux has undoubtedly won the competition. And now I’m so glad to have another reason to proudly say “I use Arch btw”...

If Windows 10 immediately destroys itself while trying to do its first update, you didn’t actually fit it in 16gb. It hasn’t fit inside of 32GB for several years now.

The worst part of flatpaks is that they don’t get to see the actual path of files that they open. Instead, they get a /var/run/1000/blah proxy. The proxy is forgotten after you reboot, so any flatpak that memorized that path is holding a bunch of dead links.

The actual news is “renews focus on AI bullshit”.

First, make sure your laptop bios is up to date. Updating should be a simple matter of downloading the naked bios file, put it on a fat32 stick, boot into bios and use the built-in flasher.

You could set up a winToUSB drive to run the WD firmware update tool.

Or, you could go through this. community.frame.work/t/…/20616

In my experience, gnome-shell already has a highly variable refresh rate. Sometimes it’ll go 2-5 frames without refreshing at all.

The other way to look at it is to stick the drives into a usb enclosure. That gets you away from the PC’s 3v3 rail. If you then hang the drive enclosure off of a powered hub/dock, you are definitely way outside of the PC’s power supply problems.

Here’s one that I have, hopefully it’s still made halfway good. www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08G14NBCS/
