>Manjaro
this is now an Arch derivative hate thread
>>
>>68811801
yeah, it's ok
>>
Used it for a while, then it broke (probably related to manjaro and not i3 specifically) so I stopped using it.
Also I had this weird problem where every window was very slightly transparent and I'd see the manjaro logo on the desktop through everything (dark scenes in movies etc.).
But it's nice to have a distro with i3 preinstalled, I wish there were more of those.
>>
It's manjaro therefore it's shit, but recreating all the UI crap in Arch takes fucking forever, so I just user Arch+KDE and replace KWin with i3

There is a max level for being retarded and you went flying over it at 200 mph with a 4wheeler.

>>68812095
I don't know why so many people on here always shit on i3. It's genuinely very nice and useful.

is this an "irrational hate for actually decent distros" thread?

Manjaro or any arch based distro isn't "actually decent"
>>
>>68812239
so what is decent?
>>
Arch is garbage. Manjaro is Archwith additional garbage and wrapped in a nice looking package. Install Gentoo.

>inb4 that one issue with SSL from 2015
what a solid and compelling argument for not using a nice and a non-corporate backed n00b-friendly distro

>>68812270
I used gentoo for 2 years and it was actually pretty decent, except for those times when portage interferes (yet again) with the CPAN/pip/whatever ruby has; which gets even funnier because of the fact that portage is itself written in python and therefore requires it to work. Also, installing and managing proprietary nvidia drivers by yourself is so tiresome I just gave up and switched to a slightly shittier but more "justwerks" distro.
And, yes - I'm aware that this post is a pretty weak bait.
>>
>>68812305
>portage interferes with stuff
Rarely ever happens, portage literally saved you from breaking your system in those cases
>proprietary nvidia drivers
You emerge nvidia-drivers. Maybe put a version mask on it according to the nvidia website if your card is 6 gorillion years old.
>weak bait
More like unironic free shilling I'd say

Gentoo literally has a script for when perl and his dependencies fuck up badly.
There's one for python/ruby too, as far as I remember (might be wrong tho).
Point is - I didn't even develop in neither of those languages at the time of my gentoo install, yet they fucked up every other week. And I was on the stable branch.

>>68812381
that's what I did at the beginning. Still, on the stable branch the version tracking was not exactly perfect (i.e: the driver did not _always_ match the kernel), which used to fuck up my openGL performance every other reboot.

I'm not bashing gentoo, I actually loved using it. It's just that with manjaro there's a lot less small things to fix.

tiling wm's are a meme

Only retards care about something as insignificant as the WM.

Manjaro is trash
>>
>>68811894
look at the date anon..

>>68811801
Tried Manjaro for a couple weeks, had multiple hiccups with many different applications, tried Arch for a month, everything ran smooth as silk. Wasn't the point of Manjaro being a distro based on arch with a non 80's installer and some extras? Or am I thinking about Antergos?

I'm not really a ricer so I just stick with debian stable. i3 and dwm are very good but I don't understand the gaps meme. You're using those WM to maximize space for your work, or you're just want a pretty desktop?

Regardless, I'd install arch with i3 if I were you(instead of Manjaro).
>>
>>68811801
It wasn't when I tried it. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, was scaled properly. If you're a lazy retard who wants Arch with i3, I suggest you check to see if Happy Hacking Linux is still around.
>>
>>68812169
What's the point of installing a minimal wm on such a bloated distro?

Manjaro is fine, I pushed it onto this kike wanting newer software in #debian-next (no literally, he's like a pol-tier Israeli), but he managed to break it because he wanted an extremely old version of Firefox and refuses to use a newer browser.

I've never really had problems with Manjaro, but it hasn't lasted long on my machines.
