went looking for maximus and window titlebar applet for mate on +Solus No luck. I was also wondering why mate on Solus has indicator support? there are no indicators on Solus. I really do miss caffeine. But side tracked, this post is because I found this quote by +Ikey Doherty had to laugh...

Caja will never enter the repos, nor will MATE or Cinnamon or any of their components, just making that clear now
before any package requests are made.

+Solus I know transitioning to gnome 3.22 has been troubling. But IMO it shouldn't have happened until ALL of the core stack could be upgraded. Seeing as gnome is moving functions between apps (file-roller -> nautilus), I now have to open every archive with file roller to extract it, because gnome killed the file roller plugin with 3.22 But I still have 3.20 Nautilus and 3.22 file roller. Result; broken features. Honestly I don't understand how the upgrade to 3.22 got pushed when the main core app in the stack is not working.

What the hell happend to dconf editor +GNOME?
+Ikey Doherty,+Solus Can we have the 3.2 version back please?

I'm tempted to create an initiative focused on improving the state of Linux on the desktop. The goal would be to fix common annoyances that we encounter on our daily usage of Linux. It would be distro agnostic and and project agnostic and would feature some sort of meta-bugtracker linking to other projects.

It would also feature a consumer oriented aspect with a highly curated list of app, scripts and themes proposing only the very best of what the Linux world has to offer.

It's sort of a response to all those Linux distros that are a small variation on a much more widely available one. It also a response to those daily frustrations I encounter on Linux with things that should "just work" and yet, still don't after all these years. I don't want to build big new software, I don't want to build the perfect distro, I just want to bring a better experience with what we already have, whether you're running Ubuntu, Solus, Arch or Fedora. In some way, it's like +Lutris but applied to the Linux desktop.

With a new job and several other projects I have to maintain, this is not an adventure I want to start alone and if the project fails to gain traction, I'll just continue writing small scripts on my own to fix issues (everything I write is available on github). I secretly hope that +Ikey Doherty and +Martin Wimpress will find this project interesting since I'm looking for people who thrive on providing a great user experience. That said, anyone willing to learn a lot about Linux is more than welcome!

If no one comes up with a better name, I'd like to go with Shellac (From Wikipedia: "It is the central element of the traditional "French polish" method of finishing furniture and fine violas, guitars and pianos.").

Just throwing this out there, interested in receiving opinions, thoughts and all sorts of "What are you on about, Strider?" comments.

So I'm loading up KSP on +Solus​. I glance at the loading crawl and it says "adding k to every word". K for kerblin? Or k for #kde ? Made me laugh anyhow.


+Ikey Doherty I remember, reading you were thinking of changing the look of solus. I'm seeing arc/paper theme screenies all over, I think you and +Horst3180 already won that battle. :)
