Right after installing [Manjaro Linux] i run into weird issue. Most of needed applications like Firefox and Thunderbird take around 10 seconds or so just to startup. Such behavior on NVME drive is unacceptable at all. Problem was in a serious [bug in gnome desktop] , despite the fact that i’m running XFCE desk. Workaround for GTK-based desktops is to run following commmands in terminal: sudo pacman -Rdd xdg-desktop-portal-gnome sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-gtk Imagery by spacedrone808
Recently, I’ve decided to install Linux for web development to make sure that i’m not missing something in terms of modern features and technologies. I chose [Manjaro] with [XFCE] desktop. However, all multimedia works are staying on Windows 7. I still can’t find proper replacement for Vegas Pro and many other tools i use in my daily workflow. [Modern web is working] , [security is updated] , so i don’t see any reason to ditch it in favor of something more fancy.
And will not sing praises on how cool Linux is. Because I know that it has its own quirks and inconveniences. For testing I almost randomly choose [Manjaro Linux] with lightweight [XFCE desktop] . Manjaro is based upon [Arch distribution] .Yeah, ubuntu is too much pop for me. Key benefits of Manjaro are quite transparent: modern & stable environment and pretty vibrant community. I understand that Linux don’t have all software, which I need and try to find software replacement in a while.
