odd forum, i’d like to see this topic as a list of threads, but ok
I spend the other night switching from LMint to this distro
It took about 6 or so tries with different distros, i lost count.
Most could not handle the hardware.
Manjaro has worked very well straight away.
- Nvidia driver AOK, installed by default, yay!
- Audio works, play youtube video, ok.
- Install Chromium for YoutubeTV, no need to install 3rd party codecs, OK
- Customize desktop; using ‘traditional’ layout of GNOME, ala windows look, moved taskbar to left (the modern wide screen needs all it’s vertical space for apps, autohide is meh)
- Install Steam (3 versions, ok); currently using LSI version, proton 6.3.* i think; AOK
- Install Minion Masters; quit guild, join new guild with better players, CHECK ;#) with 3 minutes to spare before server shutdown and new ‘battle pass’ (the crowd goes wild… )
- I haven’t figured out how to remove the trash and ‘home’ icons, but i put trash lower right and home upper left, it’s ‘ok’; maybe change trash icon to look less ‘trashy’ lol
- Strange glitch with ‘activity view’ where it would not return to normal view, forced to log out; haven’t seen it lately, but the 2 or 3 times it happened were too much
. Really like the option on install for swap file, as my SSD is only 120g (might turn off hibernate though, meh; laptop thing really)
. I like the Gnome with the panel on the left (not the ‘new’ view with the ‘top bar’, traditional view windows style but move panel to left; it’s great; i was reluctant to use gnome because i did not like the top bar at all; i’m anti-apple rather a lot; but now i am loving it after realizing i don’t really ‘see’ the far left and right of the screen, imo it’s just for the videos, of course; but now i realize the taskbar can go there and not need to be hidden)
. package management is good, but sometimes i wonder what it is doing, meaning the gui thing; i’ve only used the default, i hear there is another
. nice ‘dark’ theme, appreciated
Forum looks like for cell phones, ugh; can we get a ‘desktop version’?
Thanks for making it great… killah man jar oh yeah
