Hello from Canada

Hey everyone!

I'm weirdvector from Canada. I'm going to be making the switch from Windows to GNU/Linux full time once I get through my exams (mid-December hopefully.) I've used ubuntu and mint before but have run into problems and then reverted back. I've been using #! in a virtual machine and I'm impressed with how slick it is.

I'm a software development student, so I'll probably be throwing Eclipse on there. I'm also working on learning vim, but I don't know whether or not I'll be comfortable using that for writing code. I also love gaming, so hopefully I'll be able to get steam running on it as well. I know Gaben plans to make GNU/Linux the new platform for games, so I want to be comfortable using it.

I've heard the community is one of the best things about using GNU/Linux, and that's supposed to be especially true for #!, so I'm looking forward to meeting you (and then pestering you with noob questions  tongue )

Be excellent to each other!

Hey weirdvector. Welcome aboard.

Community? Yup, that's one of the better things about CrunchBang. Some people move on to other distros and still stay here on the #! forums because it feels like home. I hope you enjoy your time here as so many others have.

Re: Hello from Canada

Ok, first question. I'm floored by the way you guys have gotten your desktops to look, and I've started trying to emulate it. A big thing in these forums and /r/unixporn is setting the colors of the text in the terminal. I see a lot of people have cool scripts made up to print out their colors, and their screenfetch (I think that's what it's called.) I can't for the life of me figure this out. I don't even know what the first step would be. Can anyone point me towards a decent tutorial?

Re: Hello from Canada

Just so you know, (since I had this problem) if you try to open Eclipse and it crashes, you need to open up eclipse.ini in the root folder of eclipse and add the lines

--launcher.GTK_version
2

right before the line that says

--launcher.appendVmargs

Re: Hello from Canada

Thanks Head_on_a_stick, that was exactly what I was looking for.
