Actually do a bit of reading cause kde now is no heavier than xfce, and in a lot of cases actually lighter. as for Plasma itself not even remotely slow.
Actually came to the thread to say installed the KDE version on a external 256 gig USB 3 SSD, seemed to install fine but after the reboot after installing would not go into the desktop. Get the boot screen, but just sits there spinning. Any ideas?
So this is the kinda of 'problems' i faced:
Plasma.desktop still present in sddm [desktop-choices-menu], i guess we need it somehow (curiosity)
Opening the Plasma.desktop session -> KSmoothDock+QTerminal running (empty desktop with messy [Keyboard layout])
Back to the lxqt session -> Krunner/TaskSwitcher(breeze) changed to [light] (plasma.desktop fault.. so how do i turn it to [dark] again ?)
'Krunner' [Settings] left button opens nothing (should we stick with the 'lxqt-runner' ?)
'System Monitor' app -> [Tools] -> 'htop' -> KDEInit could not launch "konsole": message (cause current one is 'qterminal'.. i guess)
[Keyboard layout] selected (ex: French layout), is always overridden by the [English layout] each reboot... even when deleted (turns out, it was because of 'Fcitx 5', so u may add the language there or remove the service completely/startup )
Sometimes icons positioning is a little bit messy (alignment) in lxqt-panel. (i guess, it's more related to the lxqt.desktop itself not the spin for sure... just wondering. Cause it turns back to normal if u restart the panel for example)
it is something i have to announce regarding manjarowish future.
from now on im abandoning manjarowish .
all the manjarowish spins wont have new iso from now onwards.
i have moved on and created Garuda Linux
which is based directly on arch linux and uses arch repo
the reason is manjaro branches i just dont like the structure at all.
i also have modified mhwd and manjaro-settings-manager
and made mhwd-garuda , mhwd-db-garuda and garuda-settings-manager
it works with arch repo
and uses nvidia-dkms instead of kernel modules
and garuda-settings-manager displays all kernels available and not just with format linux44 linux49 etc
so in short garuda linux is arch based and has most of manjaro goodies
without mess of branches and delays.
this distro also eliminates any need for stable and what ever branch as we use btrfs
so even if bad updates break things you are safe and you can have working system in seconds.
and it contains all the tweaks of manjarowish
