@mgiagante @mgiagante ehhh, i'm used to debian/apt so i didn't bother changing it. it's okay?? seems reasonable enough, it does the job. i dont mind the only free as in freedom repo situation as much as i thought i might (plus its easy to add other repos) is there something in particular you're worried about?
sometimes the boot decryption screen doesnt show and i have to restart, but that's just when booting. once i'm in everything works well. except bluetooth, have to install proprietary drivers for that.
@y0x3y Nothing in particular, just that I didn't know it at all. Thinking of getting one and use it with i3wm. I wonder if and how much that will extend battery life/autonomy.
@mgiagante im used to bspwm on my desktop and really miss it on my laptop tbh. tiling window managers are dope.
gnome is a heavy beast and probably consumes a lot of battery life, but it does make certain things easier for a laptop.
@y0x3y I guess you are talking about UI features like volume control, output device selection, multiple monitors, etc? Those are quite some work to setup but if you use something pre-build like Manjaro i3 you're pretty much covered. I think there must be debian flavors/derivative with i3 preconfigured.
