How do I install my graphics card drivers?


#19

Okay then, I’m kind of confused around here >.< but I’ll be quick to learn. between what is tty? On that again, I recently(just an hour ago) tried to install ruby and ruby gems in manjaro because that’s what I need to install Sass compiler but seems like I broke the computer again by breaking the environment variables.
This is the tutorial I followed and it didn’t work out so when I restarted the system showed me a black screen with a small underline blinking. so I had to reinstall manjaro again, that accounts to 10 times in just one night awwww :sweat:

I am also learning ruby on rails using the Odin Project so I need it along with ruby, gem package manager

TTY Demystified.


#21

Do not install any package before update.


#22

Oh crap, I installed atom editor, git, and ruby


#23

If it didn’t break your system, then ok. But some packages require update manjaro-system first. In that case you need to do full update. Partial updates are not supported, they can break the system.


#24

Howdo I update my system then? when I tried, it says some packages are conflicting and there’s some dependencies and other issues


#25

There is a thread on that. Do not be hasty with that. Read carefully, try to see what problems other users had and how they solved them.


#26

Okay, well that didn’t help as much. I guess I’m sticking to this version for now until I figure out how to work on linux & not try to mess around the system and software.


#27

You can post details on your specific issue in separate topic and ask for help. The community is usually eager to help beginners.


#28

OKThanks, the only problems I had where that my other screen was not turning on because of graphics driver or something and then I dont have the dev tools like pug, sass, and others installed so that’s kind of sad but I can hard code css and html that’s not a big issue >.< but it would be nice to have them because im not learning them right, so I can gofast and stuff if I had the extra software.


#29

I think you need to step back look at what you have written go for a long walk take the advice you have been given or think seriously is a rolling release for me, or perhaps I don’t have the ability to use Manjaro at this point in time, Remember you can always come back to Manjaro if that is the case


#30

I’m gonna learn linux and stuff now, maybe using manjaro daily and learning a new command/function a day could help me out :3

I found this website http://www.tldp.org/guides.html

I think the first problemis that you are installing an older ISO. For an experienced user this might work fine, but a new user getting three issues at one is a Linux overkill.

I would wait until @oberon creates a newer Deepin ISO, or install this one https://sourceforge.net/projects/manjarotest-community/files/deepin/17.0-rc1-unstable/

Even if it has “unstable” in its name if it boots and install for you it is as good as stable on a rolling release distro. After installing edit /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf setting Branch=stable
sudo nano /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf
after editing Ctrl+O to save (confirm the path and name with Enter) and Ctrl+X to exit.

After some time you will learn your Linux basics, I’m sure, because I see some real willingness. And though Deepin is not the easiest to manage its beauty is a stimulus to learn how Linux works.

Cool I’ve just finished my highschool (failed though) and I’m willing to learn a lot of things
I’ll definitely try that today, but if it doesnt work in the half of the day, I’ll go back to this stable older release as I have to finish my FCC Front End Dev project and the last day to do it is today (I’ve procrastinated enough)

also, .conf, is this just like .json? I mean like in web apps we use .json files to share data/apis and define application names &dependencies etc (node.js) is .conf file just like this? (only got this doubt because of the bool Bracnh = stable) I guess it works the same but I’m not 100% sure. :3

[edit] ugh it’s itching me, what does that do? setting the branch to stable? Does it send in upgrades when the stable version is released? or will it assume that it’s a stable version?


#33

It points the packagemanager to download from “stable” online repository. Just see here http://mirrors.ocf.berkeley.edu/manjaro/ there are unstable, testing and stable folders. The new package version first get to unstable, then to testing, then to stable with 2-3 weeks delay.

As for your question about .conf files, this is more a question a for a textbook. What does a user care about the idea behind them?


#34

Something tells me to start poking into linux


#35

I have to bump this, oh god, I make lots of graphics related stuff and my graphics card is not working because I can’t install a driver ugh. Please, someone help me :frowning:


#36

Maybe you should create a new topic with detailed description of what you are trying to do and what help you need.


#37

I thought that would make me a spammer :joy: OK, then I’ll try to do a detailed description.
