Awesome! 👍 

p.s. I know it slows down renaming ... but so far it has been the only good working method I have found.

Hey thought with us here in the states FINALLY getting rid of the DICKtator and the recent rise in C19 cases I'd check in to see how you are doing, and to also see how your adventures in Arch based distros is going. Still on EndeavourOS and loving it. Roommate gets a new mobo tomorrow and I'll be doing a fresh install and setup for him.

Hey there!

Right now I'm mostly using MX Linux - it's not perfect but it has been quite stable for my uses.
Majaro I've abandoned for now - the virtual machine still exists, but I'll admit that I'm not using it.

I'll give EndeavourOS a try 😊 

I just got a gaming laptop - maybe I'll dual boot that one 😊

If you do try EOS it's pretty minimal so you for the most part get to add only what you use and need. I installed it using the BTRFS file system without a swap partition or file and seems pretty stable and solid. Personally got tired of the share amount of updates for Manjaro and files being linked together in Garuda that aren't normally linked. Now if you do decide to try EOS make once you are on the live enviroments desktop click up date this app in the welcome app first, then chose online install. 

That said from your post sounds like you're doing good.

I'm doing OK indeed ... things can always be better though, right? 😉 

I'll give EOS a try, thanks for the update tip!
I just need a small and fast Linux distro, mostly to compile applications for Linux.
So all suggestions and tips are most welcome.

p.s. any suggestions on what desktop environment / window manager to use?
They sure make it confusing for newbies and users that do not use Linux on a daily base 😜

Plasma, Cinnamon, Xfce would be my suggestions. Plasma has been lighter on resources than Xfce by about a 100 megs of ram, but Xfce might be better suited for you simply because you just want to get up and running and not play around with a ton of settings. Nice thing with EOS Xfce is the default desktop if you chose the offline installer. Like with any OS and desktop you have to find what works for you. You may just end up staying with MX in the long run. I've heard good things about their latest release.

Awesome ... thanks for the tip. I'll go with Xfce then for starters.
Since I'm not a daily Linux user, I have to make sure that whatever I try to build works as expected on all platforms (which it seems to be doing "OK" so far).

On another note please do not hesitate to signup on the EndeavourOS forums. For the most part the staff and members there are very friendly and helpful. If you do signup I'm AlienProber there.

Before I forget There is a thread there for lesser know programs and I added a post about both RMTV and DuckieTV, so a we bit more exposer for RMTV.

Good day wanted to check in and see if there is any thing new in beta 12 that would make it worth updating to from beta 10?

Beta 12 brings an update concerning the pictures being downloaded.
We have found that TVDB sometimes has (for example) JPG files that are actually PNG files (and vice versa).
Most likely caused by TVDB users using the wrong file extension, or maybe the upload mechanism at TVDB.

So what beta 12 does is, actually download the image and determine what the actual file format is before saving it.
I think that is the only "big" difference.

I'm not surprised at the problem and believe it's most likely TheTVDB themselves. I honestly have no use for them any more. I don't know if you're aware but they shutdown their forums and want to start charging to use the main site which gulls most people since they can't even consistently get show data correct. I've been pushing Sonarr and DuckieTV to switch to TheMovieDB. Luckily in your app I can just unselect TheTVDB.  

 

Since I mentioned beta 12 I'll ley you know that beta 10 works perfectly for my use. The metadata editor works great.

I totally agree ... TheTVDB lost my interest a while ago already.
Poor quality control on their database (system and content), and inconsistent and unreliable data.
Why would anyone want to pay for that? 😜 

I'm depending mostly on TheMovieDB for a while now (Sonarr and KODI).

Good to hear the metadata works well 😊  - thanks for letting me know (since I do not use it myself).
