Questions that don't deserve their own thread
I want to build mpd but I can't manage to run it. It claims mpd.log doesn't exists despite recognizing the rest of the files on the same folder. Tried rewriting it in the .conf file, nothing, so I guess my problem is that I can't recognize  .log files for some reason
Anyone had this issue?
Is there actually anyone out there who likes CMake? I'm probably spoiled b/c I didn't have to live through even worse build systems or approaches but quite frankly it's a horrid mess to try to deal with, and it's ugly as ass with ALL_CAPS_EVERYWHERE. If want to be shouted at all day I can find better ways to do it.

I guess apart from CMake, the entire area of have to sort out the proper includes, libraries, linking etc., while probably super-duper-nifty to boomer greybeards who invented this shit in the first place, it's never been a fun time for me in all honesty in fact of course.

Meson seems a lot better tbh and I hope it becomes popular. Because even if dealing with other build systems is a PITA, I still hunger for the efficiency that only compiled languages really offer. 

Thanks for reading my blog.

In short,
I JUST WANT TO WRITE CODE NOT ADMIN COMPUTERS

Are there any tools on linux for ripping images off PDFs? I'm fairly new to the OS, and the editors I have appear to have no such function. I'm on cinnamon mint, on a version from about 2017.

You can use pdfimages, a command line tool. Type pdfimages -v into terminal to check if its installed already. If not, its part of poppler utils so you can install it with sudo apt-get install -y poppler-utils. Then you can use it for example pdfimages -png /path/to/example.pdf /path/for/outputting-images/, to extract the images in png format. Check pdfimages -h for help with other options like including the page number in image filenames.

Why bother with anything besides just plain make anyways?
Question, is there a way to view image in tty ncurses without display manager like Xorg?
