Artix Plasma - can you just build this already please? 12 March 2019, 05:24:07 I'd like to thank you for Arch without systemd. Really- it is truly appreciated. I love it as an OS and have made it my own on my own hardware and it's absolutelty fabulous! If Artix were a bit more polished out of the box I'd use it in a production environment.* LXQT - I personally could not code a better desktop (or anything beyond scripting really).* Plasma - kicks LXQT in the teeth and the arse in every way.(Does LXQT seem to need half of Plasma anyway?)In Plasma:- custom keyboard- "just works"- Power button - yep you guessed it - just works and offers shutdown options.- Display brightness - works- Volume buttons - they work too These are all expectations of a modern OS on modern hardware. Unless your wish is to remain secluded and work in a limited fashion does it not seem prudent to make this as painless as possible for end users? Even today's low-end hardware is very powerful and capable of rendering a nice desktop..Give me Plasma or give me a VT!Today's Plasma works wonderfully on low-end hardware. I use it on a fanless Chromebook w/ 4G RAM & an Atom quad-core processor with a 1080 display- it's more than adequate. Alternatively, LXQT makes my wrists hurt, my eyes hurt, my ears cannot hear and my keyboard is mapped incorrectly. Frankly - the live Artix experience on what should be fully supported hardware is not ideal - in fact, it's behind the times and it's a developers decision to keep it so by using such a limited desktop.Why not support a complete desktop experience? Anyone can always install something lesser at their discretion. If your hardware is so low-end it cannot run Plasma maybe it's 32bit?
