Updated: 2021-12-10 - Change in window manager, browser.

Not a lot of tech I use. Honestly for a person growing up with computers, I am a pretty techless person.

Some stuff I change sometimes, like my distro or desktop environment/window manager.


Desktop: Just a refurbished ThinkCentre 92p

E-book reader: Pocketbook Touch Lux 4

Mobile: Samsung S5610 - my trusty phone of 8 years, you can throw it, but it will not break. Screen is still clean.


Operating System

Linux distro: Artix Linux (runit version) - I have been using only Linux for the past 15 years. This is one of the most reliable distro I have ever used, probably because it doesn't use systemd.

Window manager: xmonad, a tiling window manager made with haskell. Currently still getting familiar with it.


Terminal emulator: kitty (experimenting), otherwise st.*

Web browser: LibreWolf.

Password manager: KeePassXC - never use your browsers password manager, or paper.

Launcher, wallpaper setter: dmenu, chwall script with feh

Text editor and other stuff: Emacs.

Bookmark manager: buku or org-capture mode in Emacs

RSS reader: Elfeed with Emacs

Video player: mpv

Youtube: Freetube

Download videos or mp3 from youtube: Youtube-dl - you can use it too view videos directly, with mpv

File manager: mostly ranger, Thunar or PcManFM if GUI

Music player: ncmpcpp and mpd, or Qmmp with original WinAmp skin

Gaming stuff: I use GOG most of the time, but if it's not there Steam (Proton too). If I use Wine I create separate prefixes, or use Lutris, occasionally Dosbox. I use Heroic Launcher for Epic store games.

Screen color temperature: sct

Graphic editing: Inkscape and GIMP

Image viewer: sxiv

Bittorrent: Transmission, because I can't make rtorrent work.


As of fall 2021 I have returned to fedi, but rarely use it. you can find me: parasurv
