@iah I've watched a couple of his videos, and it always makes me want to fire up Arch.
@mike have you tried larbs.sh? It just finished over here. And its beautiful.
@iah I haven't yet. I really want to.
@mike I support you. Why don't you?
@iah It's just been a matter of time really. That and I didn't want to compromise my main system, but I recently got myself a Thinkpad, so that isn't a concern anymore. Maybe it's time I made the move!
@mike I'm made time today. And I got work 100%, studies 50% and two kids and a third on the way with that a demanding wife 🤣
It is, until you run pacman -Su 😉
Years ago, I had been Arch user for five years until I finally realized that I was too old for this crap. It was really funny for example, when /usr/bin/python was changed to Python3 without any good reason and maintainers didn't give a damn that there was tons of programs which expected Python2 there.
But maybe today something has changed for the better though.
I've seen a lot of crap over the years, but I felt like I've had enough when I got a forum thread locked due to my topic being a "superfluous cry for help". Well, sorry for being Swedish and not speaking perfect English?
2: The topic "I need help with weird looking fonts in IceCat itself".
@mike what kind of ThinkPad you got? I bought two for a couple of months ago. I didn't expect to win two auctions 😂
Nice! It's an X1 Carbon.
@mike nice, how's the battery in that beast?
It could be better. I get 3-4 hours of screen on hands on keyboard time.
@iah Yea, it was barely 3 hours before I installed it.
@mike which genaration of X1 you got?
@iah It's an oldie. 1st Gen.
@mike alright. But I think you really should get more time out of your battery.
@iah I feel that way too.
@iah wow I really need to get a tiling window manager in my life. He has a lot of really cool shortcuts setup too.
@geekgonecrazy yeah, have you tried anything else?
@iah I have tried awesome back in the day. Lots of gnome/budgie/xfce etc.
Actually installed arch back on my laptop and installed i3 on it to play around with it this weekend :)
