@Rinzwind so i have to edit the path and give this path "/usr/local/bin/python" right ?
@Rinzwind Do you know why is it showing like that. Because earlier there was no issue in creating virtual env but now its encountering this.

**The Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Pre-release Survey**
https://ubuntu.com/blog/the-ubuntu-20-04-lts-pre-release-survey
@blade19899 this one trumps yours askubuntu.com/questions/1195410/…
 
@Rinzwind That one made my brain hurt
Vote to delete, got immediately deleted. Forgot I have that power now xD
@Rinzwind you think I should keep this deleted?
 
yes please :D
 
Will keep this deleted!

@Rinzwind > Budgie rocks!
SAME! Its my new default desktop interface!
 
ubuntu survey: what do you expect from ubuntu desktop in the next 2 years.
answer: buy up and dismantle microsoft.
@blade19899 it has been mine since gnome3 infected ubuntu
 
@Rinzwind That's not going to happen. Atleast not by Ubuntu. Hopefully some day though
I'm thinking about switching to Fedora altogether though
 
1:50 PM
I smile everytime I hear about Fedora because that's the name I gave my cat when I got her and now the first thing I think about when I hear it is not the OS haha
(My heart balances between Ubuntu and CentOS, although I shall say, I've been disappointed by the first one the last few months (especially the snap/apt double installation drama...))
 
next cat name : Cent, Arch or Debian? :D
 
@damadam I wanted Debian but my spouse wants it to be Kali :p
Although Manjaro could be cool too (but they don't like that either. Bummer D:)
 
and the drama would be Windows :D
 
oh god please no xD
 
@damadam Puppy Linux :D
Thats an actual Linux distro: puppylinux.com
 
1:55 PM
debian rocks
 
@blade19899 I didn't understand the aim or main advantage of Puppy :/
 
@damadam I dont understand the aim or main advantage of most forks. But, people still forking.
 
download a fork just to have a puppy on background : best answer ever ! :P

Q: Host rebooted when issued `swapoff -a`

KahnOn a physical host running Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS and serving as a hypervisor via qemu, hosting a single guest, I've issued: swapoff -a To the host, which hung for several minutes before kicking me out of the console. I was unable to get back onto the host, and found that it had rebooted, which re...

 
2:40 PM
Anybody here has experience with Fedora?
 
2:51 PM
kinda
 
@avazula What are your thoughts and experiences with it?
Completely forgot about Linux Scoop:
 
@avazula don't say it purrs and it leaves hair everywhere to @blade19899 question :D
 
:D
 
@damadam LOL. My mind is made up. Switching right now! xD
 
@blade19899 very limited. I used it back in college (t'was the OS on our lab computers). Seems nice for educational purposes and people who like a nice GUI, but Ubuntu still seems better for both those goals. I switched to RH and CentOS when entering the industry ; easier for handling safety rules and policies
 
3:29 PM
@avazula Thanks for this. I am going to use it for my personal desktop, I just need it to do my basic stuff/and handle some IDE for my coding. Other than that, don't need much.
 
3:40 PM
@blade19899 Yo :-)
 
Forgot to mute this tab, on the phone with some co workers, and the sound was very loud.
Now I know he has never been on this SO chat before xD
@Rinzwind Yo D:D
 
Fedora experience here :=) 6 years of using and 2 years of WEARING one
 
@Rinzwind I would like to know your experience on the Linux Distro called Fedora, and I would love to know you experience with the hat called a Fedora!
 
it is very velvety :+) so not good when it rains
Thing is.. the OS is basically a gnome 3 desktop but with no sudo.
 
4:00 PM
... no sudo? Huh?
 
they use root
sudo is optional
 
Ah okay, I was wondering. I actually fired up a Fedora VM, just so that I can verify that statement XD
 
sigh. I even have 1 HP UX I have to maintain :(
and 2 AIX. even worse
 
@Rinzwind Arch Linux seems easy next to that :D
 
Ahhh, Arch Linux, tried that once. Never more then once!
 
4:14 PM
really? I love Arch.
No more dependency hell!
 
@terdon That was years ago for me, back when my linux knowledge was limited, eventually I landed on Ubuntu. Just a lil bit easier for a noob to install
 
Oh, far easier. No question.
But once you have it installed, it's not too hard.
But yes, not for new users. Absolutely.
 
I might try it out again in gnome-boxes, or one of my laptops
 
dependencies on Arch are really totally erased? how does that work?
 
@damadam I was wondering about that myself
 
4:26 PM
@damadam Not erased. They're just never a problem for some reason. I can't actually tell you why. Their packaging system just deals with it better than apt
 
@terdon enlighten us Sifu
 
package system is pacman if I'm not wrong
 
yep
 
yes
so it packages better UNLESS your package is a yellow candy
 
so why pacman isn't available on Ubuntu? :(
is it an issue of dpkg?
 
4:32 PM
@damadam ?
You can't just change the frontend, you'd need to completely replace dpkg as well.
You can't just use pacman with deb packages, the entire packaging system is different.
^^ a comparison of Arch and Ubuntu.

Oh new design? Repu points in blue.
 
@SergiyKolodyazhnyy Me? No not really. I rarely have the energy to work on stuff like that after uni.. I'm taking advanced scripting/automation this coming quarter though so I'll be doing some then.

Q: Edition standards

guillermo chamorroSince a while I've being an active member of AskUbuntu and Unix & Linux. As such I often edit Q&As. But I'm lost in some aspects and details of specific edition standards.
