You actively using it?


#44

Woo, looks like I made the short list :)


#45

Right? Makes me grin every time!

I've been using Manjaro for a month now (my first experience with linux. Yeah... complete noob).

Yesterday i installed Arch on my notebook using Brennan's Dirty Guide. I had some problems but everything is fine now, using XFCE4 and searching for a music player that fits my needs.

(sorry for any grammar mistakes, Brazilian here)


#47

Using and maintaining to the best of my ability.

Indiscriminate -Syuing aside :3


#48

I want to check out arch, but i'm to lazy the last weeks. :(


#49

Try DeadBeef if you like foobar2000, or Clementine.


#50

Count me in. My laptop has become an ARCHer.


#51

So, I suppose a lot happened in the past day and a half, then? Which WM did you go for?


#52

B-but.. I just installed slackware.  Oh well, time to install arch.


#53

Does it count if I run a dual boot with windows and arch? (my current OS setup)


#54

As long as it isnt in a VM.


#55

I was bored and you guys kicked this old idea.

WM? That was indeed the hardest decision to make. :D I was looking for a DE to start with - and i picked Gnome 3. Don't know if I like it, but this whole thing is just intended as an experiment.

Which WM / DE can you recommend?


#56

Gonna install Arch this weekend (or try to). Just need to get an extra Ethernet down to my room (I have to pass them through the ceiling).


#57

Been running Manjarobox (Openbox flavor of Manjaro) for the last few weeks, I'll end up going back to Arch eventually though. I'll post here when I do.

Manjarobox is really impressive for such a young distro I must admit, really digging it as a beginner distro.

i3 is a fun one imo.

I have only used it for a short while though, tiling wasn't so great for what I do on my laptop (different windows overlapping eachother mainly browser windows because I need/want to keep an eye on 2 webpages at same time that autorefresh and it's just easier if the back one is bigger size since I regularly go in there to browse other stuff, a 15" laptop screen doesn't have much real estate).

Thanks :)

Here's the wallpaper:

I uuuuused to run Arch.  Back in 2012.  :P  I had Arch all setup with KDE on there (on my netbook (an Acer Aspire One ZG5/AOA150)).  But then I deleted everything on the hard drive and put Ubuntu 13.04 on instead (I forget why; especially since my netbook can barely run Unity :P).  But my netbook is more of a just play around with it and do anything computer.

Recently I got a new computer (a laptop, one which is actually really powerful too) and I put Ubuntu 13.04 on there as well cuz I wanted everything to just work.  Which it never does.  :P  But I've fixed all the issues now and such and now it all works (I don't like to make more work for myself than I have too, except sometimes; and that sometimes is when I use Arch :P).

I haven't actually figured out the new system Arch has for installation however (I'm used to the old AIF thing, so I still just use that when installing Arch since I can easily upgrade to a more current release anyways after installation).  I should get back into Arch again though cuz it was fun.  :P  Plus it's always nice to put together your own OS.

 

Here's a picture of my old Arch installation on my netbook (nothing fancy):
