If you don't know me, I'm a super easy to use Linux distribution based on Ubuntu and GNOME with a i3 tiling window manager as the default desktop.
With me, you will learn fast how to use more your keyboard (and less your mouse).
I'm a standalone distribution but I can also be installed on you standard Ubuntu through a PPA.
Contributor Jens Klein will be presenting Regolith at GNU / LinuxDay in Vorarlberg: https://www.linuxday.at/ohne-fenster-regolith-linux

Nice! Although FYI @gnome is doing the heavy lifting of most of the functions unrelated to the window manager, via the excellent gnome-flashback project.
Switching from GNOME to @RegolithL was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
Nice choice Ivo!
@RegolithL once again;)
If you have an opinion about i3 supporting modular config files, please express it here: https://github.com/i3/i3/issues/4192
Any idea on how GTK themes like Dracula could be contributed to flathub ?
Else, flatpak applications fallback to the default GTK theme
I don’t really know to be honest. There is an issue on the go to discuss the port, with the latest being a call for testers. https://github.com/regolith-linux/regolith-desktop/issues/169#issuecomment-674542132
I just got done installing it on real hardware so I can take it for a proper spin. Then open some issues and PRs. If anyone is interested in this then I would encourage them to install it and use it, reporting bugs that come up.
What do y’all think?
