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.

Trying out @regolith tonight.
Hardest part so far is getting used to i3 keybindings...it is my first time.

Aside from that it looks and feels quite nice.

@regolith theming is complete now, incl. color map in terminal (termite) \o/

If you suffer from graphical glitches in some of your applications (like a video player or, as reported, in the Antidote spelling corrector), have a look at regolith-linux.org/docs/custom

Changing your compositor is easy and may make your life better.

It looks like @appelgriebsch is laying the foundations of Regolith on Sway and ARM.

That's awesome and that's something people on Twitter are missing. Thanks for this wonderful work, Andreas!

@regolith on a short notice... the ManjaroARM Sway profile supports theming right now. Worked on some templating mechanism that uses sway variable definitions and some sed scripts... have a look here if that sounds interesting to you: gitlab.manjaro.org/manjaro-arm

We did the first quarter !

Boosts highly encouraged! There's a twist with this one ;)

PS: The twist has nothing to do with Linux or open source

Grateful for @MIT sharing 6.824: Distributed Systems, very approachable and relevant content. Using @RegolithL to split up my workspaces has been very helpful without having to focus on configuration.

Agreed. Intuitively, the "desktop" metaphor developed early on to allow business people to understand graphical UIs is an evolutionary dead-end, yet has so much momentum it may take decades to evaporate. Luckily, we don't need to care. Open source!

@__fincham @RegolithL Yeah, I don't want "minimalist". I've *never* wanted "minimalist".

I want to do less work.

Traditionally the bargain tiling WMs make you sign is: "For…

Today I discovered Regolith Linux (@RegolithL), a PPA for Ubuntu which gives you an i3-wm setup with *sane* defaults and seemingly *properly* integrated with Ubuntu/Gnome Desktop Environment stuff.

I think it's finally an out-of-the-box tiling WM setup I can actually love.

Cross compiling and Regolith are surely a good match!

RT @caesarcomptus
As I'm working with Cross Compilers for now, and seeing that Ubuntu is the most compatible distribution today for that task, I thank @RegolithL to saving me time to setup an i3 desktop on top of it.

The @RegolithL tiling window manager is a nice improvement over the vanilla version of i3. I've been using it for 6+ months with no issues. @i3wm + @gnome == happy twitter.com/RegolithL/status/1
