Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

Still using Manjaro KDE. Still loving it. My Mint KDE 17 days feel a very loooooong time ago. Indeed my fixed-release distro days feel a very loooooong time ago. Mint KDE 17 was wonderful, coming from Win7. Manjaro KDE is a superb replacement, for me.

Re: Playing with KDE distros....Neon

Currently running Manjaro KDE on both my computers, & absolutely love it. Best Plasma5 experience i've enjoyed to-date... What does plasmashell --version return for you? $ plasmashell --version plasmashell 5.14.2 [exactly as my post signature says... :P ] Also, fyi, my kernel: $ uname -r 4.19.0-3-M...

Re: Playing with KDE distros....Neon

Currently my Tower & Lappy both run Maui , which i rate as excellent . Til last year they both ran Mint 17.3 KDE4 . Also currently, in VMs in my Tower, i'm playing with KaOS , & openSUSE [per https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=61&t=244762&p=1329939#p1329939]. KaOs doesn't seem to be my cu...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

Hi Wonder, lovely to see you again. For the others' info, both Wonder & i, after Mint KDE, found a happy home for a while at Maui. Very sadly though, its Devs abruptly abandoned it, necessitating another exodus. Though i was unhappy at the time, in hindsight it paradoxically helped me, in that other...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

...I'm open to solid non-Ubuntu suggestions. Writing as another ex-Mint KDE alumnus, IMO you'd be doing yourself a big favour by gulping a handful of Brave Pills & seriously exploring that "scary" non-buntu world. Really excellent Plasma5 experiences await you with any of: Manjaro [me, now], openSU...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

What is most of you have replaced Mint's KDE with? Manjaro KDE . Tis simply brilliant . Am an extremely happy camper with it. Took a circuitous route to get here [arrived late last year]...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

I installed Manjaro KDE alongside LM 18.3 KDE last night , Manjaro is snappier than LM on my system , uses a lot less memory for reasons I can't figure out .Also I don't use a multiple monitor setup ,so no worries there . I'll migrate files at my leisure , just had spinal surgery so everything has ...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

Well, I've gone over to the dark side... I had a lot of niggling issues with Manjaro such as video hiccups when moving the mouse from one window on one monitor to a video running full screen on the other monitor. I tried everything to fix it but no go so I've switched permanently to LM Cinnamon 18....

In case anyone else also has been affected by this, fyi i have now pinpointed the specific trigger for the KWin crashes when dragging windows between desktops in the Desktop Grid . This is relevant for multiple Ubuntu-16.04-based Plasma5 distros, definitely including Mint 18.x, Kubuntu, Neon, Maui.....

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

Many thanks. Well, i feel slightly baffled. Given that Martin Gräßlin is directly quoted, my earlier doubt is wrong. However what is not wrong, is my statement that RASM continues to be fully functional in oS TW KDE. Weird. Pls don't tell oS; i sure won't :lol:

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

Hi mr_raider You have two options. Au contraire , i have three options... #3 remain with oS TW/Leap . As i said, RASM works perfectly here. Given that openSUSE works hand in glove with KDE , "your" explanation that it was a KDE policy decision does not quite smell right to me. Pls note: i am not in ...

When i previously did my Live Media KWin stress-test via Desktop Grid window moves in Neon, i was using Plasma 5.7.5 as booted from " neon-useredition-20160915-1018-amd64.iso ".

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

For all those inclined to sooner or later move on from Mint KDE to KDE Neon [or any other Ubuntu 16.04-based distro with KDE DE], AND if you are heavy uses of KWin functionality, you might wish to perform these tests ahead of time with your putative new distro, on your HW [not just in a VM], using L...

Re: Replacement KDE distros... Feedback here!

What would you prefer to call it? Discussion. It doesn't make much sense to be looking for a replacement today. Wouldn't it make more sense to wait and see what's available in 2021? How do we know for sure that any of the above suggestions will be viable then? For some of us, it's an opportunity to...
