Post your Desktop setup

Interesting! That’s pretty awesome.

I need to jump on the NextCloud bandwagon. I’ve setup NextCloud and OwnCloud, but after I set them up, I don’t even use them and end up deleting the VM :sweat_smile:

Lately, though, I’ve wanted some sort of decent file share solution.

How’s CentOS treating you? I opted for Debian over CentOS because old habits and nostalgia. I used CentOS for YEARS, technically I still do at work (Amazon Linux 2). But I love me some Debian goodness. I have a laptop with Solus on it, but my battlestation is Debian :wink:


#22

I was in a similar situation as I had ownCloud on my old Ubuntu server before I moved to CentOS and didn’t set it up again for the longest time but now that I do I can’t live without it, I have it setup in a docker container which is a breeze to manage and it syncs everything between my desktop, laptop and phone, even have it pointing to my target directory for when I compile LineageOS and it pushes to my phone and can flash the new image in seconds its great :smiley:

CentOS is been running very well for me, the reason I went for it is because Fedora is my Linux of choice so it being rhel based is very familiar to me while also having a longer support cycle. I can’t really fault it other than sometimes having slightly outdated packages can be a problem for doing some of the things I want to with libvert/qemu which is very hit or miss on CentOS.

So thats why your server corner looks like :smiley:

I still need to get something like that setup


#24

yep, it might not be pretty but it gets the job done. I do want sort it out properly some time in the future so it doesn’t look so much like a fire hazard and my mother getting on at me how ugly it looks. fun thing is that its always a talking point when we have people over wondering what the hell it is doing XD

ye having a remote central system for storage is just too convenient, even if its a small machine running a couple of services it helps to save soo much time.

Niiice, that’s awesome. I have SonarQube setup in Docker and I can’t imagine doing it any different lol.


#26

Current setup [Note I had to redact my Coffee Cup from Work cause it has the work logo on there. Also I don’t drink coffee. So I brought it home to use as a pen holder.]:

The Small desk is the dedicated book writing space. Yeah it is technical separate from the desktop but I do plan to put a raspberry pi desktop there.


#27

The 2nd monitor definitely needs a wallpaper that fits its orientation.
Where’s the 2nd speaker?


#28

Behind the 2nd monitor. As for the wallpaper. It is set to rotate every 30 minutes from wallpaper that is 2560x1440. Also I’m just using the windows wallpaper manager system.


#29

So I take it you usually use your headphones or how does that affect the sound?


#30

Yes.

When I just use the speakers. The Sound sounds normal. I do have to have it turned higher versus when I listen by headphones but that would be the case regardless.

When I get a third monitor again the other speaker will also be behind a monitor. I don’t have one that is behind a monitor right behind a monitor. It is about 4 inches behind it and still point at where I sit.


#31

Cheap custom mount and put them in a horizontal way under your main monitor?
While it’s kind of a no-no under audiophile to lay speakers on their sides, I used my last ones that way for years and never had any issues with the sound.


(Yes,) #32

i’d post my deskptop setup but between the 5 PCs and random xbox, among a wide variety of other things crammed into my tiny room it’s just a little messy lol.
though if anyone really wants to see it i could clean a bit and take some photos but still :stuck_out_tongue:


(The Lazy) #33

Sure


(Chris) #34

Ditto, you guys saw my rats nest pig sty AKA temporary networking closet :smile:


(The Lazy) #35

I need to take a picture of my setup. Is a mess but its my mess XD


(Yes,) #36

That’s a lot of Ryzen!

That what they’re all running?


(The Lazy) #39

Considering this is the official AMD shill. Yes


(Yes,) #40

Some yes; dual PC (well… Now like 3 PC plus a random Xbox for Forza among a couple others) is a 1800X build, a 2700X build, and a 2400G build.

Other rigs are a random FX 8370 system I’ve had for ages, only reason I keep it still is because it has the 990FX Sabertooth R3 so.
And a number of old Core 2 quads or etc randomly around.

They burned that bridge for me a while ago lol, not to mention I poured gas on the fire with the one reddit thread xD
