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: regolith-linux.org/docs/refere

Installation and upgrade instructions: regolith-linux.org/docs/gettin

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.

Samsies!

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.

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

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

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.

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
