    Guide Beginner Intermediate Quality of Life Improvements and Tips #1

    Creative does not support Linux, and they're rather hostile about removing any mentions of Linux on their support forums. They do not write Linux drivers for any of their hardware. I would recommend looking into the FiiO and Schiit USB DACs. I use a FiiO e10K with my DT 990, and it works...

    App management questions

    We aren't using an application. It's being generated through a script which defines the folders through a series of gsettings invocations.

    App management questions

    If you want a GUI for managing packages on the Debian platform, you can try out the Synaptic Package Manager. I believe this will give you everything that you're looking for. As for having multiple versions of an application installed simultaneously, this sounds like you have some Flatpak or...

    Question Solved Boot in verbose mode by default?

    If you want to disable the splash screen, then you need to remove the splash option from the kernel boot arguments. `kernelstub -d splash`. If you want to set the logging level of systemd to `debug`, you can do so with `kernelstub -a systemd.log_level=debug`.

    Question Heavy thermal throttling when gaming and using emulators.

    You may be able to get better temperatures if you disable Intel's pstate turbo mode: echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/intel_pstate/no_turbo

    Question Heavy thermal throttling when gaming and using emulators.

    This is not uncommon for hardware whose firmware is not being quality-checked on Linux. If the ACPI tables are misconfigured, it is not able to set the correct power levels for various components in the system, resulting in higher average power draw and temperature.

    Question Solved Boot in verbose mode by default?

    If this virtual machine is not running with EFI firmware, then it performed a legacy boot installation with GRUB. kernelstub and systemd-boot are only installed and configured on EFI installs.

    Question Heavy thermal throttling when gaming and using emulators.

    Sounds like the CPU is overheating.

    Question Solved Boot in verbose mode by default?

    There should already be a loader.conf file at /boot/efi/loader/loader.conf. Adding timeout 5 to the file will cause it to wait 5 seconds before choosing the default boot entry. We're using kernelstub to automatically generate the loader entries for Pop!_OS. It only maintains entries for the...

    This is very much true. See TianoCore / EDK2.

    Clevo doesn't offer AMD as a chassis option, hence the lack of an AMD option for System76 laptops.

    Creating a recovery partition on a new drive.

    The installer always creates a 4GB recovery partition when choosing the "Clean Install" method.

    Question Flatpak and Nvidia Run-time

    Flatpak automatically installs NVIDIA libraries based on the version installed the host, so you do have access to CUDA and GL/Vulkan in Flatpak containers. The real question is if the Blender Flatpak was compiled with CUDA support.

    Rebase POP! on PureOS

    For many people, avoiding proprietary software is not an option, especially when there are no suitable open source alternatives. There are many proprietary tools and technologies that academics, professionals, researchers, etc. require in order to perform their job functions. There may even be...

    No installation candidate on every software

    That depends on if the Windows application you are installing through wine is 32-bit or 64-bit. Generally, it's best to have both. Steam comes with its own patched fork of Wine, Proton. It does not depend on the system version of Wine. Lutris also can manage multiple versions of Wine itself...

    No installation candidate on every software

    You may need to run sudo apt install --reinstall pop-desktop to force it to reinstall the already-installed package, and thereby trigger the dependency resolver to install the recommended dependencies.

    No installation candidate on every software

    You need to ensure that you have `pop-desktop` still installed. It depends on a handful of i386 drivers and libraries to enable graphics hardware support in 32-bit applications.

    No installation candidate on every software

    Unsure what you mean. Removing the i386 repository means you cannot install packages from the i386 repository. Most commonly, that would be wine and steam.

    Question Solved Use GPU exclusively for computing

    The situation hasn't changed, so the above advice is still valid.

    No installation candidate on every software

    Steam is a 32-bit application, and therefore requires 32-bit libraries to run. Many games on Steam are also 32-bit binaries. By removing the i386 architecture, you have removed access to Steam and its dependencies.
