As I think and as Rob mentioned in this video, it could be better to have a software center instead of or with Pamac GUI. It would be pleasure to use software center instead of a package manager like gui app. Pls
Publicity, if it is related to Manjaro (as a project or community) or GNU/Linux/FOSS, will usually be allowed. Promoting web-invites, blog posts or commercial promotions are actively discouraged, or outright prohibited. Registering just to promote your issue/cause, FOSS-related or not, treats the community as a resource and is not acceptable; if unsure about the appropriateness of your content, contact the moderation team before posting. Also be aware that posting shortened/obscured links is a technique of spammers and deliberately inhibits the communities ability to judge the propriety of the link. Therefore, please only post links that include a clear destination. - Forum Rules - Manjaro
Even if Gnome is my current DE of choice, there is something else outside of Gnome.
KDE, XFCE, Cinnamon, Mate, LXQT, … A too gnomish look for Pamac would not necessarily looks good on all environments.
Why should Pamac mimic Gnome Software Center specifically? Why not KDE Discover? Or Pop Shop?
Pamac is Pamac. If you have requests, suggestions, graphism ideas, you can open issues into Pamac section of Manjaro Gitlab.
Rn it’s not really a pleasure to use it in case of user experience. It could be more simple, more like Gnome Software, Kde Software and Pop Shop mixed. I don’t know, why don’t just give a try and check if it looks good, boosts the user experience, or not.
Tuxmanjarino and anzel. Don’t you like improving stuff? This is what Linus Torwalds talked about. This is why Linux will never become mainstream (if we don’t improve stuff soon). Because the big tech always tries something out, tries to improve their software based on user feedback or not. But currently neither of opensource devs take critisism very great (except and thanks who does!!!)
