  1. I have a z370 GAMING PLUS motherboard and a coolermsster hyper 212 black edition with an RGB fan. I have connected the RGB cable to the RGB header on the motherboard. I cannot figure out how to control the RGB header! MysticLight seems unaware that there is an RGB device connected to the header. Is my header broken? Is MysticLight not the right program for controlling that header? I know the RGB fan works, because I can control it with the hardware RGB controller that came with the fan EDIT: Figured it out, the RGB cable has to be *completly* connected to the RGB header. If the PC gets bumped even slightly, the cable comes loose and disconnects. Whats the best way to keep the cable connected?

    Routing openvpn thru ethernet

    On windows, I can select 2 network interfaces, right click and click "bridge connections", and use the internet connection from 1 interface on the other. This is very useful for connecting ethernet devices to a wifi network. I use my VPN for alot of things, and I thought it would be cool if I could route traffic to an ethernet device from my VPN via wifi, how do I do this?
  3. I am reinstalling arch because my old hard drive died. Before the installation, nvidia-bl installed without any trouble and worked great after blacklisting apple_bl, now nothing is happening at all. Before blacklisting apple_bl, the brightness keys would show the little brightness bar, and the brightness appeared in my power settings, but they did not actually effect the brightness of the screen. I've installed arch on this exact laptop quite a few times, and this is the first time i've had any trouble with this, what should I do? If it helps, heres my /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia_bl.conf: blacklist mbp_nvidia_bl blacklist apple_bl #If your backlight is very dim, try uncommented this option. #options nvidia_bl max_level=0x1ffff shift=1 Also, uncommenting the options line in there does not effect anything It might be worth noting that I manually downgraded X11 to 1.19 as 1.20 isnt comatible with the nvidia 340xx propritary drivers

    2 8400's or a RV370?

    I swear to god this isnt a joke, im not old enough for a job and have a bunch of old computer parts, I'm trying to figure out the best configuration for my PC, i have 2 GeForce 8400's and a board with built in SLI and a radeon RV370, would the 8400's in SLI perform better or the radeon? i've never tried the SLI, in case it doesnt work, would a single 8400 or the RV370 perform better?
  6. I am on arch linux (installed on a mid 2010 13 inch macbook pro) When I run steam in the terminal (basically the same other then the second line if i use native runtime), this is the output Running Steam on arch 4.16.13-2-ARCH 64-bit STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0) it just hangs there, no window, no nothingit's probably worth noting, the first time i ran it, it prompted me to accept the terms and use, which i acceptedI have the correct nvidia drivers, 32 bit and 64 bit, i have tried deleting .steam and ~/.local/Steam
  7. It sounds bad in windows as well, so seems unlikely to work, but i'll try it
  8. Hi! I'm new here so bare with me on this one.. I've been rocking an old Acer C720 running arch linux for a long time. a combination of the fact i'm on chromebook hardware and my crappy headphones, I never really cared to much about sound quality. As I'm only 15 I can't exactly just go get a job and get myself a better rig, I was happy to take it when I heard one of my buddy's was throwing away an old macbook pro mid 2010. I upgraded the hard drive and installed arch linux and windows, and they are both working great. I later got some nice(ish) headphones for Christmas. I quickly noticed they sounded much better on my phone/tablet then my laptop in both linux and windows. I later discovered they sounded much better in the web player of spotify (but still completly inferior to the tablet/phone, which is understandable as im listening via a web browser), but they sound great via an MP3 file in vlc media player. And yes, I have spotify premium with high quality streaming enabled. I've tried everything I can find online to make the spotify client sound acceptable, but other then connecting my headphones to my tablet and using spotify connect to control it via the spotify client, I can't get it to sound half decent, so I decided perhaps a better route would be to ditch the client altogether and find a third party alternative. TL;DR: Whats the best third party spotify client, or alternatively, how can I get the official client to sound acceptable?
