  • Fixed tracker-store’s CPU hogging issue on Arch Linux

    I think it’s since when I updated Arch Linux a while ago the tracker-storeprocess has become CPU-hogging and it can drain the battery pretty quickly and turn my laptop into a heater. Obviously there are people experiencing this issue already, but most of them that I found were trying to disable the Gnome tracker. I’d […]

  • Time Machine for Arch Linux

    I’ve been using Arch Linux for some years, and it’s still my favorite Linux distribution. The feature that distinguished Arch from others is its rolling release which means there’s no such a thing called version in Arch. Using latest packages in Arch is the norm.
