Hello Mastodon!

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.

Regolith version 1.5.3 is now publicly available via the release PPA.

Details regarding the release:

Installation and upgrade instructions:

We're currently doing some website upgrades to better support multiple languages. Some content may be stale for the next few days as we work through the migration.

We will produce a patch release soon to address some unnecessary cpu consumption when disconnected from all networks. It will be called 1.5.2.

New year new distro!

@RegolithL is quite smooth and stable, it should be the default Ubuntu distro 👍

The only issue I remember was related to VPNs setup, fixed by raw config file edits.

Holidays are for instantOS 🚧

Aww, that's great to hear BT!

Not a day goes by that I don't appreciate @RegolithL making accessible to me. Changed my workflow forever!

Thanks, and plenty more polish on the way with Regolith 1.5 due to ship soon!
RT @whimful
Hey @RegolithL, just want to say how much I love what you've put together. It's all the features I want with tiling, plus a bunch of thoughtful "just works" things like auto night filter which makes it a delight to use. <3

Will contribute a little $ from our coop to support you

Contributor Jens Klein will be presenting Regolith at GNU / LinuxDay in Vorarlberg:

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.
RT @btpaulie
Switching from GNOME to @RegolithL was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

The third new user-contributed look in Regolith 1.5 is inspired by POP!_OS:

Any idea on how GTK themes like Dracula could be contributed to flathub ?

Else, flatpak applications fallback to the default GTK theme
