Re: What does your non-Debian desktop look like?

Fresh install (net install, text expert mode, wifi) of Devuan 2.0RC on my second SSD, those are not the default icons, they were a little too dark and ancient for me. https://cdn.scrot.moe/images/2018/05/14/Screenshot_2018-05-13_19-30-19.th.png Edit: just got the system sounds working, wow, what a l...

Simplicity is beauty to some, whatever works for YOU. There is no thumbs up smiley in this ancient ahrz forum so...*thumbs up*

Re: What kernel do you use

I stopped installing and testing new kernels. I found out according to my tests, that ubuntu's kernel 4.4.39 can't be improved in terms of performance and behavior with my laptop ( Acer Extensa 5230 ). I dont even try anymore with any other kernels. :o , this kernel works perfect in this model. Sam...

It's like you're talking about giving a cat slices of fish.
Ha ha, yeah, it is finicky, it has a lot to do with iommu and the VIA USB 3.0 chip. She's a picky 'girl', lol. :D

I've been stickin' to the 4.9.x series in Devuan (4.9.30-bpo) and PCLOS (4.9.34), my machine loves 'em. I just hope it'll like the next highest LTS.

Re: What does your desktop look like?

How I like it - dark and minimalist. This is my first Debian install, coming from Ubuntu then Mint. Debian was a bit more of a learning curve, but I'm very happy to be here. https://s7.postimg.org/p4cj96jmf/Screenshot_from_2017-04-20_22_07_23.png Yep, Debian is more DIY, but it's worth it, the 'bun...

Re: What does your non-Debian desktop look like?

Just goofin' around in antiX 16.1 live, installed the Xfce meta-package and the Xfce goodies on the fly and prettied it up. Seriously considering dumping Devuan, it's feeling a little too clunky and sluggish. Lots of nice toys in antiX OOTB. I like boring, work station-like wallpaper, it's easy on t...

Re: What kernel do you use

You should add a qualifier to your recommendation. Assume a beginner doesn't know anything about our technical jibber-jabber; they might try and install your amd64 package on their 32-bit install. "Jibber jabber"? What part of my post was not clear to you? It was made clear where I instal...

Re: NSA brain drain under Trump

Maybe the OP did not intend it to get political No I did not, I just found interesting so much talent was leaving such a huge organization. I won't lie, I'm no fan of the NSA, but that's a lot of brain power heading for the private sector. Maybe some of them can head to Twitter, lol, their server s...
