Manjaro-Arm Jade (webdad) spin?

jade

#1

I’ve been watching jade for a while and although its alpha/beta(seems to work for me) it feels very intuitive and small screen friendly. I can picture it being a go to for tablets and TVs. which suits our SBCs pretty neatly.


#2

The SBC’s we support is not actually meant as Tablet/TV devices.

But yeah, I’ve been watching the Jade Desktop aswell, and have considered trying to get an edition going.
And since it’s Python it should run anywhere.


#3

Ram might be an issue with my setup, also the UI is not tested in tiny screens.


#4

I am trying to see how “minimal” I can make a Jade desktop be. :slight_smile:


#5

I don’t know, a pi3 is pretty impressive. If xfce and lxde/qt can run reasonably… I do think the ui would fit well in may applications. it just feels so fluid. I expect you have already considered a touch interface


#6

cairo dock, can be replaced, by tint2, maybe xfce window manager instead, applets can also be disabled, but we kinda need them for things like wifi and sound.

@f15h I did start rewriting the code to be more ram efficient, but that was never finished.


#7

tint2 and openbox even? something like a archbang/jade hybrid. I haven’t tried this, but would jade interfere with openbox pipemenus?


#8

I have no idea, am not an openbox user. :man_shrugging:
