Also i think that compiling the kernel and the software for your system is more efficient but i don't know whether or not it's worth it.

>>1340 and I can use the terminal and type out the program's executable and beat you in speed and efficiency
>>1340 Oh thanks I didn't know about that shortcut
>>1342 You'll have to open a terminal first. Then type several letters and autocomplete.
>>1346 How slow do you type, dude. Also, for opening the terminal just use Ctrl+Alt+T on a debian or ubuntu based distro.
>>1340 typing is faster. even on windows I'd rather use the windows key and then search for the app I want
>>1342 >>1346 >>1349 >>1350 How slow is your mouse hand exactly? I type at about 80wpm. Just did a simple test: Super-T to pop open a terminal -> hammer a few letters -> Tab to autocomplete -> Enter to start up program: ~2 seconds Super-D to view desktop -> move mouse to .desktop icon -> double-click: ~1 second Dedicated keyboard hotkey shortcut to run a program of interest: less than a second
>>1357 Note that a terminal with autocomplete is functionally equivalent to xfce4-appfinder, dmenu, Windows search, etc.

>>1592 A nice, functional desktop. Not bad. Replace MATE with Xfce and dump Steam and Discord though.
>>1593 What's wrong with MATE? And why is XFCE in particular better? Also yeaah I've got a bunch of nonfree shit, but I've just got too much connections with my 'fellow gamers' to drop it all. And I'm well aware that Discord is literal spyware of the highest calibre, but if I've not 'installed gentoo' and gone full freedom I figure my security's totally compromised anyway
>>1597 Just use something like trisquel which is quite easy to install and use. It’s basically ubuntu without any spyware or proprietary software. Uses MATE as its default de.
>>1597 >What's wrong with MATE? Not that there's really anything wrong with it (though its attempts to ape the Vista/7 aesthetic in its customization interfaces is a little disgusting). It's just that Xfce can do pretty much everything that MATE can do while having more features and customizability with the same or smaller memory footprint. At least, that was the situation the last time I did a thorough investigation of MATE a few years ago. What's the point of MATE when Xfce exists?
>>1599 >(though its attempts to ape the Vista/7 aesthetic in its customization interfaces is a little disgusting) On second thought I'm thinking of Cinnamon on this point, not MATE.
>>1599 >>1598 I have a better comp than this that I've wanted to do a clean install on that still has winblows (le ebin gayming PC), so I figure I'll blast Linux over it, and this Trisquel does seem pretty cool, but I notice that it's latest version is from 2018 which seems a bit old. I don't know if that really matters though, I'm not much of a hardcore compsci person at all. And I think I'll just stick with MATE since I'm just used to it and it seems the only out-of-box option for this distro, even if it's marginally worse than xfce.

The factory Manjaro KDE felt very sluggish, no idea why they didn't go with xfce. But I never planned on using that anyway, hence i3. It replaced a 10 yr old single core netbook as my light on the go laptop, for that it is just awesome.

>>3498 Nah; Ubuntu just werks, stick with it man.
>>3498 just use manjaro if you want to rolling release is nice and it isn't "bleeding edge" like arch so there won't be a problem with your system breaking also pacman is amazing and compile times are better i had better performance in games too when using manjaro
>>3498 Unless you have a specific reason to switch, don't APT is better anyway
(446.61 KB 1024x768 o.png)
>>3510 I once switched to Arch, because an update broke my Fedora install. For the most part it worked without much hassle after the initial setup and with regular updates, but when I crashed the Init System while modifying power management, I went to look for a OS without systemd. The openrc port was not that well maintained at the time, so I could not get Arch to run with it. Though left behind an old Arch install for Steam, it was nearly broken when I aborted a hung up install (pacman has bad error recovery IMO). Despite a lack of support for some software, my current platformworks with all modern formats and is much cleaner to administer. tl;dr When you want to use Arch, you should probably look for something better.
>>3515 why not artix?

>>3515 What is this vision from the 90's? Is that a BBS I see before me?
>>1602 >Sword and Sworcery fag
>>3498 i switched to arch linux because i kept being annoyed at how terrible ubuntu was at updating between major releases, and tried my hand at a rolling release to not do major updates anymore, and i kept using it for like 3 years straight without doing anything except regular updates until i changed computers and that was super sweet. all the issues i've had with arch are mostly related to NVIDIA Optimus with the proprietary drivers tbh. Dunno how well does ubuntu fare with that shit though.
>>3515 >tl;dr When you want to use Arch, you should probably look for something better. like what though, broken updates seem like a pitfall for rolling release distros in general

Trying out Wayland + Waybar, pretty good so far
>>3610 *Sway
>>793 yes
>>3538 It seems like I should have elaborated more on that part. When I picked up Arch, I thought of it as some kind of "build your own linux" system. I certainly liked that you could manage it on the level of individual programs. Instead of booting to a black screen after an update, I would set up the bootloader myself and could continue meddling with it, when it did not work as intended. Unfortunately Arch builds most of its packages against "bloatware" (systemd, glibc), with a few badly supported alternatives in the AUR. When I recognized this, I saw 2 options: Use a more transparent OS (gentoo, smgl, suckless base with pkgsrc), or use an OS with sane defaults (OpenBSD, alpine). I mostly do the latter (because I always fail at the former ;-)
>>3661 >Unfortunately Arch builds most of its packages against "bloatware" (systemd, glibc), with a few badly supported alternatives in the AUR. Just use artix runit or openrc. Alpine is a piece of shit to work with in my experience
>>3662 What problems did you experience with alpine? I needed to set up some things from an archiso, because the alpine installer could only format ext4, f2fs and msdos partitions and I wanted to boot from EFISTUB. Installation and setup were otherwise very straightforward. It even had a script to set up X-Windows. Unfortunately it does not support a symlinked /usr (/usr->. Though when I was just trying to configure it as a VM host, glamoregl.so blew up in my face, I experienced similar and far worse things with Arch and other tty-based binary-packaged systems.

>>4043 Cinnamon is even worse than Mint, I'm not sure I understand your argument.
>>4045 XFCE and Cinnamon are Desktop environments Mint is a distribution that comes with Cinnamon in its mainline release, though images with other DE's are available
(6.96 KB 276x183 homer.jpg)
>>4046 Wow how embarrassing, I had Mint confused with MATE for some reason. Well my point applies doubly so with Cinnamon. If you want weak customizability and a patronizing interface like modern Windows, Cinnamon is exactly what you want!
>>4049 I'm not sure what you mean by patronising, the interface works, is unobtrusive, and works well, it is similar to the DE used in windows by default, but the same is true of many DE's including XFCE, and it can be customised quite easily, obviously not to the same extent as something like KDE, but much, much more than windows can be and as much or more than the bulk of users will actually want, for those that want to go further, other DE's will suit better Its worth noting that XFCE use the exact same metaphor by default in most distros its rolled with, a taskbar, a context menu, an indicator panel etc, it just does it worse with more archaic defaults (you can't even open whisker menu with the super/win key in many distros out of the box) and more of the old school linux problems, like the aforementioned screen tearing on perfectly good hardware and horrible looking text The standard Desktop metaphor has lasted because it works better than most metaphors, Mint has been successful because it works better than most distros, but if you like something else that's fine

Holy shit I got pissed off again just searching for an image of this UI vomit.
>>4050 The screen tearing was finally fixed in Xfce 4.14, though you could always use a 3rd party compositor anyway. True it has shitty defaults but I don't care about that. Cinnamon and MATE are fine too, whatever floats your boat. I'm curious which of the 3 will get Wayland support first.

>>4054 Its literally a slightly different way of presenting the same information, a switch slider provides the exact same information and functions the same as a checkbox, it merely looks slightly different I hate to be patronising, but you do realise patronising is a word with a specific meaning, yes?
