^ Yeah, he does some nice minimalist backgrounds.

BTW, he got mad at Debian for their position on the Richard Stallman issue, so he canceled DXT2; just when it was really starting to get good.

If there's no right-click menu, not interested. Openbox, Xfce and Plasma, that I know of. (and possibly some tillers I don't know about).

That looks good and Preining's repo is usually cutting edge KDE stuff.

Well, that is stunning. Did you post it in the screenshot thread yet? You should. openbsd-cwm has a right-click menu, you should try that, it's challenging.

Didn't realize that you can configure a rightclick apps menu for KDE, unless that's very new.

Would it be correct to rewrite this as: The wonderful right-lick menu was "meant to be", (intentional) where the "to be" is inferred?

Similarly,  there is an inferred "I am" in:

To read: If there's no right-click menu, (I am) not interested (in that disrto).

I think we are in agreement, we like the right-click menu. smile

Yep, I've been setting up a right-click app menu in KDE Plasma for a number of years. I don't remember when I started doing it.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

I was interviewing Mageia Linux the other day, and by coincidence Jessie of DW did a review of it.

https://www.mageia.org/en/

Stock desktop:
mageia0.th.png

I don't understand the 4.4 wallpaper.  o.O
mageia1.th.png

I could not find a 'testing' or backport repo with Firefox 87.X (anything newer than 78.x)
so I lost interest in the disrto. I assume (yeah I know) there aren't other fresher packages either.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

^ I think this is the review you're talking about...

https://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issu … 405#mageia

And, yes... I prefer Debian Bullseye. Easier to install and easier to maintain.

"Mageia ships with a graphical package manager which is referred to by many names. Depending on which screen or bit of documentation I was looking at the software centre was alternatively referred to as the Mageia Package Manager, Install & Remove Software, RPMdrake, Rpmdrake, and Software Management. Whichever name we choose to use, the package manager shows a list of categories in a pane to the left of the window. On the right we see a list of packages in the selected category."

I'll use apt, thanks very much. If you want names, call it apt-get or aptitude or dpkg or Synaptic. I call it the best package management system available, but your mileage may vary...

pacman is right up there. faster on the one hand, not as feature rich on the other. the rest is a joke in comparison, especially all the rpm package managers.

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

I've been trying to fix a broken installation of SolydX 11EE (Experimental Edition), which took a 1,109 MB download, and there are still one or two problems with it. Still it will be good when it's all working properly.

SolydX is based on Debian and, as the "11" suggests, 11 EE on Debian Bullseye. If my experience is anything to go by though, the non-experimental version of SolydX, which is based on Debian Stable, is a safer bet.

[Edit: I was getting the "orange screen of death" (orange is SolydX's default colour) whenever I launched Pale Moon from the menu. I've solved that, for the time being anyway, by installing and running dwm and launching Pale Moon from there instead of from XFce.]

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Honorable Mention:

BusterDog

https://debiandog.github.io/doglinux/zz03busterdog.html

BusterDog, based on the Debian ‘Buster’ branch but without systemd.
It’s using special method (taken from AntiX) to avoid systemd by replacing systemd with ‘elogind’.
(and more, e.g. libsystemd replaced by libelogind)


    Tint2 panels
    PcmanFM providing the Desktop and lxpanel
    Tint2 bottom panel and rox-pinboard providing the Desktop

Option to switch to JWM window-manager
Default File Manager - PcmanFM with option to use rox.
Default Internet Browser - Palemoon.

Booted on my test machine in 720Xwhatever; no firmware for my generic AMD card, no drivers for my USB mouse, 'nuff said.

is too colorful for me  hmm
the difference should look something like this

$ ps -p 1
    PID TTY          TIME CMD
      1 ?        00:00:01 sysvinit
$ ps -p 1
    PID TTY          TIME CMD
      1 ?        00:00:01 systemd

elogind should keep the System systemd-free   wink

Re: Distro-hoppers anonymous

Been hearing about Garuda Linux.
Arch with the Calamares installer.
BTRFS as the default filesytem.
GUI package manament, kernel installer,
and more tools; some look like MX Linux copies.

Way too busy for me. Look at the system tray area.

Address books, calenders, and a lot more installed and running.
