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.

Happy to hear it Mike!

Well looks like @RegolithL is fast becoming my favourite DE on Pop OS. It's an i3 style tiling manager that works nicely with Gnome and Ubuntu. I believe they have an ISO too that you can use if you want to go full on Regolith. Noice.

The new website is ready for translation. If you're interested in contributing to the project and know another language, please check here for details on how to contribute a translation: regolith-desktop.com/posts/loc

We'll send Regolith laptop stickers to translators that want them!

Thanks @jolek78 for highlighting the fact that there’s now a :regolith: emoji on fosstodon!

Soumya Patnaik is going to be working on adding Wayland compositor support to Regolith in his Google Summer of Code project. We're looking forward to his work!

As promised here is a tested how-to for installing Regolith into a minimal Ubuntu environment:

@RegolithL @debian @Ubuntu What would be the best way to get a fresh installation? Installing Ubuntu Server 22.04 and then Regolith 2.0 from the repo?

Great question. That should work but we'll respond in a few days with tested documentation for a clean, minimal setup.

The wonderful @omgubuntu has posted an intro to 2.0:

Regolith Desktop 2.0 is Out with Various Changes omgubuntu.co.uk/2022/06/regoli

Now that Regolith 2.0 is out, the team will rest a bit. After that, I hope to lobby for an infrastructure which is more free. First step would be to replace Slack.

Looking for volunteers willing to use the current Slack, join channel and help building a free alternative to Slack while listening to the team and respecting their current habits (and the incredible work they did).

We tried a migration to zulip a couple years ago but it did not succeed.

Yes, it will hopefully follow directly after the repo-based install 🤞

projects with access to capital make radically different decisions relating to how packages and images get distributed that traditional community-based distributions cannot make (e.g. object storage + CDN verses mirrors for repos).

how can we lift up community distros?

Regolith Linux : the GNU/Linux OS you need when you want to completely ditch windows from your computer.

Even those without a capital W.

We are trying to build a world so open that you will never need to close a window again.

At least on your computer.
