powerfulparadox1307312dManjaro does have a way of grabbing you. I preferred Mint to Ubuntu after the design disasters of Gnome 3, but Plasma made me a KDE user, and after Chakra started having problems I went looking for a replacement. KDE Neon was too limited, and the changes Ubuntu had made meant I'd have to relearn to command set (as well as Neon's tweaks). Manjaro was Arch-based like Chakra, and seemed to do most things the right way. Someday I'll be brave enough to do an Architect install, too.
jesustricks2946312dwow man, I've been following you for a couple of months and feeling glad you are liking it.
I do the same thing, startx a lightweight DE and xrandr afterwards. fast boot on a hdd.
> no more ppa's
hell yeah, just thinking of running apt update with 10 PPAs makes my stomach twirl
I don't miss gnome at all either, including the problems when switching back to it from a vt:
* 2 second black screen delay
* xkb reset because gnome somehow thinks it should reset
if you ever take the arch step, I promise it's not as hard as people make it to be. The result is a system with just the software you use, no more.
i hope i can get a radeon gpu laptop next time, :'(
btw, which de/wm?
martikyan1860312dToo long; Didn't read, but ++'d only for using Manjaro <3
(and the huge RAM)
kescherRant26611312dAh yes, Manjaro. A wonderful distro I must say.
Parzi8676312dRyzen 3 2200G
misc AMD Radeon RX
hoo boy, wish I had anything close to that
although i'll probably never touch official pacman based on what some people have said about it and my time with dkp-pacman
arch and arch-based for similar reasons
brunofontes2004312dBack to ~1998 I used Slackware and I used to love that. I have already used a Mandrake. I couldn't stick to it as I needed too much Windows programs at that time.
So I had no Linux for several years. When I decided to code more professionally, I installed my Linux again. First the Elementary (I didn't like it), than Mint, but I was not completely happy yet.
Just like you, after reading about Arch here, I remembered how fun was my experience with that old Slackware and I installed it on my very old laptop... 1 week later I installed Manjaro at my main PC, deleting my Windows.
I just love them! I used to hate PPAs, now I love how pacman works, as well as AUR.
ManBunMike337311dI just installed Manjaro like 2 weeks ago!
Nice! You're enjoying it, then?
It's taken me a couple reboots to realize that the package manager doesn't enable systemd units. Up was down for a little bit, but once I figured out what was going on, it made perfect sense to me. It makes me question why apt does it in the first place.
werlious55307dProud of you. Debian turned into the windows of Linux. For the past few years my machines have either run pure arch (general use/development) or slack (embedded adventures). I have never tried Manjaro, arch is still arch. O, added plus, you can setup/run snap programs on arch. yay -S snap snapd
