So I finally decided to move over to a Linux based System. And I am switching from eclipse to IDEA too while I am at it.
I already did a lot of stuff as you might have seen on the Front Page of the Main Site already, but here I will post that one again.
Most things I got running so far, I basically just need to rewrite a lot of batch files to shell scripts, configure some backup utility and re-setup my Dev Environment. Everything else is already done and working, including Minecraft.
Symlinking all the “logs” and “screenshots” folders of all my Minecraft Instances, to funnel them into one Location is an awesome thing I wish Windows could easily do (there is ways to do that in Windows, but its generally not a good idea). So now I only need 4 direct links to log files on my Desktop instead of 20, and I now only have one Screenshots Folder instead of 6 (I don’t look at the logs for the Vanilla Instance, in case you did the Maths).
Also got an Equalizer running on the Audio System, something Windows only really could do if the Sound Card Supports it natively and even then wouldn’t allow that to be used on USB things. Perfect for automatically correcting Audio, and I even blacklisted VLC Media Player from that Equalizer, since it has its own integrated one I can disable on the fly if needed.
Modded Minecraft runs surprisingly well on a 1.1GHz Quad-Core. I got a mostly stable 20 FPS on the integrated Graphics of this thing earlier today. And that was on Bears GT6Lite Pack, which I don’t think should be called “Lite” anymore at all. It was hard finding the MC Launcher Version 1.6.89-j in order to have everything work properly with my Modpacks, because the new Launcher apparently propagated to Linux too now, so this old one got deprecated 3 months ago.
Configuring all of these things took ages, and if you don’t know what you do and don’t have Friends who know Linux, you should be very careful about switching from one OS to the other, but if you do a fresh start I would recommend Kubuntu for sure.
Reminds me that I got a new USB Stick that I want to install a functioning OS on for portable purposes. But I will figure that out later. Dev Environment should be worked on first, tomorrow morning.
Do any of you all have Ideas or Tips for me? Or simple Questions? ^^
