Reminder: Update your PC info for the next round of statistics updates

Posted by , | Views: 4,255

This is your once a month reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

If you want your details to actually be included in the monthly survey, be sure to head here and tick the box labelled "Include your PC details in our Monthly User Statistics?" and hit the "Update" button at the bottom, it's opt-in and you can uncheck it at any time not to be included in future statistics gathering.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required.

That was added before this month's charts were done, hopefully the 1st Feb charts will have a good increase in the amount of people answering it so we can see how reception to it has been.

After six years of using Lubuntu I switched to Xubuntu. LXDE became too glitchy. PCmanFM (file manager) crashes sometimes after copying a file. Desktop icons start to disappear too often on several computers at my work after upgrading to 18.04. At first I thought it's because of upgrading, and maybe some configs are incompatible with new versions, and I did a full fresh install on one of computers with formatting the whole drive, but that didn't help. I used to scroll tabs in the terminal with a mouse wheel, but cannot do that since 18.04.

I tried LXQt, but I found it's even buggier and is not ready for using yet.

So, I have installed Xubuntu, it works and looks nice so far and has similar RAM consumption to Lubuntu. But there are many small things differ. Lubuntu was perfect for me right out of the box, and in Xubuntu I have to tweak settings to make it more comfortable. For example, many systems have the same global hotkeys as Windows, but not Xubuntu. Why? I've been using Win+E to launch a file manager for all my file, but now it's Win+F, and Win+E launches a text editor. WTF? And mouse scroll make a window active instead of just scrolling damn window on the background.

Sure, it's Linux, so everything is customizable, but this means now I have to mess with settings after every install. And there is one thing I couldn't find how to solve. Maybe someone here knows? How to make mouse scrolling on the taskbar to minimize/restore a window instead of switching windows?

The survey is nice but I think the questions about having used Wine or Steam Play in the last month are misguided. It should focus more on frequency, like if you use daily or once a week etc.

That just wouldn't work for our purpose, unless you want us to remind everyone to the point of spam to update it a lot more often. How it works right now allows for a little more wiggle room.

Yes, I've used proton in the past month and I am waiting for a specific game to work.

Proton made me change my mind in the native vs. non-native game discussion. I never liked using Wine, because it was tedious. If something did not work, you'd have to mess with all sorts of DLL overrides, registry hacks, etc. If I wanted all that, I'd use Windows. But Proton made it fun again.

My two primary use cases for Proton are: 1) all the part ones that we never got on Linux: Torchlight, The Witcher, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, etc. and 2) all the games I have accumulated from buying various bundles. I still don't buy new games to play in Proton, because I think a native port is a better option. But if there comes something I really want, and it has a platinum rating on ProtonDB, I might just go for it.

Being a Linux gamer never felt so good.

Steam just got non-steam game proton launch options, works pretty good except sometimes you might need to create a Documents/Steam folder in the prefix or internal error appears...

Linasall the part ones that we never got on Linux: Torchlight
Torchlight for Linux has been available on Humble Bundle for years. Not on Steam though, only as a DRM-free build.
