Comfy terminal thread (20)

1 Name: Anonymage : 2019-02-01 03:14 [Del]

Installing Arch Linux right now, running the pacstrap script to download my system and browsing the board in elinks. Running in pure tty always feels so responsive, and of course being text only elinks runs very snappy. I really, really like it. Do you go out of your way to do certain things in tty/terminal/cmd(windowsfags)?

Posting with w3m sometimes, on days when I break something with my patches but want to browse. Not going out of my way, I just like Vim, it's convenient and lets me do stuff faster. On Windows I use it in Git Bash too.

Must point out I'm not one of the suddenly active /pol/ posters nearby, and I suspect they have nothing to do with the regular textboard users. Will appreciate a quote on this from a moderator. In the meantime, bump to a thread that deserves more top time.

As requested,

Please kindly refrain from bumping if there is nothing to be added.

I used to run lynx on OpenBSD 5.6 and 7. The low screen resolution (something like 130x40 character) was very nice for text reading, but I can't get newer versions of OpenBSD to run on this laptop so I just use the lowest resolution possible now instead. I've considered setting up an environment like before in DOSbox, but maybe it wouldn't feel the same.

Could OpenBSD suspend your laptop properly? I'm on Linux now and it keeps draining my battery when suspended, can discharge to zero while I'm sleeping. According to dmesg, it only tries powering the CPU down after waking up. It's a known ACPI issue with some laptop models but for years nobody knows what to do. I wonder if it may be different on other systems.

I've never unplugged the laptop, so never had to worry about battery life. FWIW I can't find any complaints about the issue with OpenBSD online, and one guy saying that suspend works as it should.

Okay. Mine won't last on battery at all now, since I fell on ice. Probably damaged not just the case but the battery too. And something related to wiring, because it abruptly shuts down when I press on one of the corners and won't turn on until I plug in the charger, after which it says it has enough charge left.

just set up gpm, now i get a cursor in tty. its like im usin fiirefox if it loaded pages instantly. i love how in arch linux you can switch between tty sessions with alt+arrow keys. i wonder if you can make this an option in other distros. i should try using w3m for a browser to get fucking image THUMBNAILS in tty the madness

# cat /sys/class/power_supply/BAT1/cycle_count

Mm new battery. 33% bigger voltage, so if this wizzie goes out be sure he goes out with a bang. Capacity is lower than original, but if it lets me return to a proper keyboard when I'm in transport or eating a burger I'll be slightly happier again.

this is cool and it looks great in terminal with 256 colors but in tty it only has 8 colors so its only novel unfortunately. however the caca video output fares slightly better in tty with more color gradients and even gets less fps dips

I just ran through the arch wiki internet subsection and came out with a few cool cli applications which I want to relay to you fellows. The benefit for me is that these programs were available in my repos/the AUR, you will want to go to the respective AUR pages and visit the sources on other distros but anyways; imgur is a nice script that uploads images to imgur then prints the link in terminal, so you never have to load that slow as hell site. Pastebinit functions great surprisingly, I thought I would be hit with captcha or something but anyways, its just a script to paste any text file to It also supports other sites. Both of these really can save some time if you ever wanted to use these services. Finally something I already knew about and use every day; YOUTUBE-DL. It is fantastic, works on a great deal of sites. Supports more than just youtube and even javascript sites with something like phantomjs-bin. Has playlist support, can download just the audio so you can download music playlists if you want, it even interfaces with my favorite video player mpv as a streaming utility (with youtube-dl installed all you gotta do is type mpv I still prefer gui applications so I didn't gain too much but there were definitely others, really cool stuff

18 Name: Anonymage : 2019-03-24 18:35 [Del]

I forgot about speedtest-cli, I move around a lot so its pretty reliable. I love these little cli utilities that interface with websites, there was even a mega one but i haven't tried that yet

19 Name: Anonymage : 2019-03-24 19:42 [Del]

Yea using youtube-dl and mpv since their first versions. Considering pastebins, check out wgetpaste, it's a common suggestion when people help you debug. If you have netcat, which your base system very likely includes, see termbin website, you might even not need any other app for pastes.
