    I used your distro for about 6 to 8 months and really enjoyed it. It was actually my first introduction to tiling window managers. Great work.

    I'm curious about ncmpcpp. I have been playing with cmus a little bit and really like the idea of having my music in the terminal. I put cmus in a tmux session and set up a mode in i3 so I can control it, I'm sure there is an easier way to do that.

    That way it just plays in the background without using any space in my workspace.

    Have you used cmus, do you think that you could compare it to ncmpcpp?

    I haven't tried the pop_os implementation in 8 to 10 months, but I understand there has been a lot of changes since then.

    I switched because I couldn't use $mod+1 (as an example) to switch to workspace one at the time. I had to use $mod+ctrl+up/down which I really didn't like. On my current setup I have an icon script that adds icons for the programs running in each workspace to the bar. Compared to the pop os version, (other than an ugly addon) there wasn't a way to see which workspace I was in.

    So at the time it was really lacking, and I'm sure they've improved since then. Although, after taking the time to configure everything the exact way I like I'll be sticking with twms.

    I had so much trouble getting things to work on pop_os but so far I've been really impressed with manjaro.

    Yeah, I am probably going to jump from wm to wm until I find something that really works for me. I've been considering bspwm.

    I love the simplicity. I'm new to this so I kind of went over the top with colors. Lol I might graduate to dwm some day.

    Lol. I'm the same way. I always take a second and look things up and then implement them later. I usually make small changes one by one.

    I just set up yadm on my laptop and used it to carry changes over to my desktop. It worked really well.

    I'd be interested in looking through configs to get ideas, and sharing screenshots and such.

    Here is what my desktop looks like right now. Let me know what you think.

    Sorry I should have explained more. Those unix desktops are "riced". Incase you don't already know they're custom desktops. Kind of.

    I went through quite a bit of distro hopping and ended up with pop_os. The few arch based distros I tried didn't seem as polished. I plan to switch to debian testing after I get tired/irritated of pop_os. I put so much effort my first rice on this system I don't want to switch again 😂

    I'll probably download Telegram today and send you a ping.

    I think I communicated what I wanted pretty clearly.

    I don't see a need to go into what I shared or didn't share with others or Facebook.

    I also don't think I need a lecture on how big tech is tracking everyone.

    When I left it was such a toxic place, and it wasn't a way to keep in touch with old friends anymore.
