Everything correct except the last part: If you install kernel 5.5 and reboot, you don't have to choose it in Grub. Only if you want to load an older one, otherwise always the latest kernel is used.
Yeah, my bad. I thought of that a few hours after I asked.
What about if I moved /usr/ share applications & /opt to my home directory and created a link on my root partition, then recreate those links after replacing the root partition?
There should be a version of gnome-like, without many programs, I don't particularly like what manjaro delivers in the gnome version.
I can't find that packge, it doesn't exist.
You mean the minimal ISO? Look again.
Alternatively, you could always use Architect and roll your own.
I am new to GNOME, and I have to admit, for a notebook we have here, GNOME seems to fit so well. It works like a charm and I got all apps installed in a way I am used to do within another DE.
It's a first for me, and I do understand some part of customization can be done with the gnome tweaks tool, but, except for a general tab, no other tabs are visible. Nor can I adjust its windows size either.
I installed Manjaro GNOME 19.0.2 (downloaded 3 days ago). No other updates.
I assume it's something easy like adjusting a permission here or there.
Apologies for my ignorance,
Please post your own thread in #technical-issues-and-assistance if you would actually like some help.
Before you post, please see:
also, shouldn't this thread be closed since manjaro 19 has been out a while
