Need a alternative operating system
    #24991091 - 02/13/18 01:01 PM (9 months, 27 days ago)

Ubuntu and windows are driving me bananas
For instance I can not delete certain files it says there in use, but where and why is concealed

I remember 20 - 25 years ago we had Norton commander, a very simple yet very effective little utility (i rather call it utility rather than os :wink: ) that run at Dos and gave easy management of your files

Now it's NTFS and I don't know WTF is going on

I need a file management os/ interface to manage files

With it I can tear those shitty pritected files from outside of windiws

Type gnome-system-monitor in your terminal and use that to kill whatever program is using the file you are trying to delete. If you sign in as root, or use sudo then files shouldn't be protected as long as they aren't being used.

Stick with Ubuntu and try a different file manager. I prefer to use the command line, but there are tons of graphical file managers to chose from. The great thing about  GNU/Linux is that you can set up the interface however you want. Your distribution really doesn't make that much of a difference.

For Ubuntu, just use htop? Just type the forward slash once you're in htop, type what you want to search for, then kill it.

There's a terminal based file explorer that's pretty much Norton Commander called "Midnight Commander" you can install for both Ubuntu and Windows. The package in Ubuntu is called "mc". I use a newer one called Ranger though, you should try that out on Ubuntu.

Ubuntu and Mint. Nither support 4K monitors :/

It supports 4096x2160 for some reason but not the proper 3840x2160

Good taste. Can I ask what window manager, terminal emulator, web browser, and text editor you use?

Right now I'm running mostly stock Ubuntu 17.10, Gnome DE, Gnome terminal,etc. I guess the window manager is Mutter. I basically just changed my terminal colors, added "dash-to-panel", and Numix theme.

For web browser I'm using Firefox 58, and for text editor I use vim.

I should probably try out some different terminal emulators. I'm open to recommendations if anyone has any. I usually just go with the stock terminal for whatever distro. Gnome terminal seems fine enough though.

Gnome terminal is fine. I like urxtv because it is tiny out of the box (I'm running Ubuntu out of a chroot environment on a machine with 11gbs of total hardrive space, so ever mb counts lol). It is also very modular and configurable.

I use i3 as a window manager. I really hate track pads and mice so being able to tile my windows, and arrange them with keybindings was a game changer.

Vim is also my text editor. I'm planning on trying out the whole emacs experience though once I get a more powerful machine. I do really love vim though so I don't think there is a wrong answer. I mean I guess nano or ed would be, but I've never met someone who actually still uses ed.
