  1. I'm definitely looking forward to playing Halo: MCC online again once anti-cheat is fully supported. I wonder if Valve will work with Riot to make League of Legends and Valorant work on Linux.
  2. I have a quad-boot setup (KDE Neon Unstable, Ubuntu MATE developer release (aka "Rolling Rhino"), Windows 10 & Arch) on my laptop. I just installed Arch an hour ago. I'm getting this error when trying to boot it using rEFInd: Invalid loader file! Error: Not found while loading vmlinuz-linux I installed Arch on my laptop's secondary drive and formatted using Btrfs, and the ESP is on the primary. rEFInd was installed few weeks back with KDE Neon, if that helps. In rEFInd, the Arch entry is looking for my ESP even after I already changed the `PARTUUID` to look for my Arch
  3. Did you try resetting/"forgetting" the WiFi connection. And I suggest updating to 21.04. That might fix your issue. Forgot to mention to check if `bcmwl-kernel-source` is installed.
  4. That's a bit too far of a leap. You said you're new, so start small like ricing your own system or tweaking the performance on of your own machine. As for icon packs, you can browse the KDE store. My personal favorite is the [Candy icon pack](https://store.kde.org/p/1305251/). And learn how to package apps. I just remembered this software called Cubic. If you need to just modify an ISO, this is your best friend. Used this before to modify an Ubuntu ISO to install Unity desktop (plus custom defaults, like Nemo instead of Nautilus) instead of GNOME before
  5. I thought the only time they ever used a Cortex CPU was with the 810 and 808, where the latter flopped hard because they rushed it?
  6. I'm aware it isn't possible with the boot drive (so password is necessary), so I'm asking about the secondary drive. I found an old laptop (Toshiba Satellite P755 with 2nd Gen i7) from work, which doesn't have TPM along with a 128GB SSD. And I'm planning on making its 500GB hard drive the secondary drive. Company policy requires Bitlocker enabled on internal drives.
  7. I created a custom guest account which belongs to the Guest group. The account can't use built-in UWP Windows apps, like Photos. How can I fix that?
  8. If you're willing to use Linux, Kubuntu is very good on low-end hardware. If you want to play online games, many won't work with Linux (unfortunately).
  9. My workplace was using one of those HP iPAQ PDA's while back to program locks, until earlier this year.
  10. So my cheap office chair of 6-8 years that I got from Staples (got it around high school, though not exactly sure when) recently broke when it came crashing down in the middle of a meeting and wouldn't come back up. I ended up buying myself a Respawn Sidewinder, which was on sale for $270 CAD ($100 off). To those who have used that one, what are your thoughts? While I've seen good reviews on Wayfair, & heard mixed feelings regarding gaming chairs in general, I just want to know what to expect (i.e. longevity, comfort, etc.) since it's my first gaming chair.
  11. So the VGA-HDMI active adapter works. I got this for $15 CAD. If COVID didn't cause my workplace to reduce my hours, I might've bought a dedicated GPU or a DP MST hub. Only weird thing with that is the output of my 3rd monitor is shifted slightly to the right. Bothers me a bit, but not enough to make me want to buy a dedicated GPU or DP MST Hub for work If anyone's interested in wielding triple monitors at work, now you know you can save some cash
  12. When I originally posted this, I didn't see the Display category. If it's appropriate, can one of the mods move this there?
  13. The ThinkCentre I have at work has Core i7-8700 & has a 2XDP & VGA. According to Intel, I can have a triple monitor setup with a DPx2+HDMI/VGA. My 3 monitors don't have a VGA & I'm wondering if a VGA-HDMI active cable will still allow me to run triple monitor.
  14. I'm going Team Red for my build (+ GTX 1060 for my GPU passthrough for VMs). I might just shell out extra for this XD.
