@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostor maybe i3 people with no desktop icons15:49:04
@apesbrain:matrix.orgapesbrainif i have one flavor of manjaro, for example xfce, can i safely and simply add (not replace) another, like KDE? What to do for it?15:51:05
@apesbrain:matrix.orgapesbrainI remember that its of course possible, but last time i did it, it went wrong15:51:43
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostyea it just doesnt work out16:00:24
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostyou can but like you just said...16:00:32
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostits because of config files in your home folder16:00:38
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostthe things they configure are just too different across desktops16:00:51
@apesbrain:matrix.orgapesbrainits just somewhere on manjaro wiki they say like "yes you can, go on, we have instructions" and then we have mess if we dont do all things like a pro16:32:08
@strit:matrix.orgStritmanjaro wiki says it is possible, but they don't recommend it anywhere.16:34:20
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostthe best bet might just be to run the lightest desktop possible and then rum virtual machines with the different desktops you like16:51:45
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostthen you have the best of all worlds at the same time16:51:53
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostthis assuming you have a pretty beefy machine i guess16:52:19
@strit:matrix.orgStritPine64 is considering making a Linux phone and tablet... 😃19:27:47
@CaffeinatedTech:matrix.orgCaffeinatedTechOne further benefit of lutris is the install scripts. Someone else has gone to the trouble of working out all of the settings, best wine build and winetricks for you.22:56:58
@mbien:matrix.orgmbienanother linux phone sounds great.23:53:35
@mbien:matrix.orgmbienhopefully the cost is appropriate for the hardware23:55:05

@mbien:matrix.orgmbien"The targets price should be in $100+ range for 2GB RAM and 16GB storage configuration." according to an article. looks like it is going to be on the low end. sounds interesting00:16:23
@CaffeinatedTech:matrix.orgCaffeinatedTechYeah that's pretty exciting. They have a whole notebook for $99 USD, and you can buy the parts. I'm sure the phone won't be quite so modular but I'm excited to see what comes of it.02:54:19
@mbien:matrix.orgmbien2gb is a little low though. if they could make that 4gb it would be perfect. you need that already for running a browser.02:58:15
@strit:matrix.orgStritSince they do have a board with 4gb Im sure they will offer a phone/tablet with it.03:48:02

@disobeyedtoast:matrix.orgdisobeyedtoast joined the room.04:24:22
@strit:matrix.orgStritI'm considering dropping Discord...18:07:41
@strit:matrix.orgStritNow, if Matrix servers where easier to setup properly, and the channel-wide calling system was rock-solid, Matrix would be a great alternative.18:10:31
@strit:matrix.orgStritAlso one thing that Matrix desperately needs, is the ability to remove a room.18:26:11
@strit:matrix.orgStritIt needs to fix the online indicators aswell. :)19:16:58

@mbien:matrix.orgmbienyeah but removing stuff is a bit problemetic given its federated nature. Every server you federate with has a copy of everything you have. Its a little bit like wanting to remove git commits after they have been published.01:49:05
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostguess if you dont have the room encrypted you could ban everyone then encrypt the room then leave it?03:39:06
@zero-ghost:matrix.orgzero-ghostat least all history should be ungettable for anyone new03:39:29
@mbien:matrix.orgmbiensure you could do that. but you can't influence other servers03:40:50
@mbien:matrix.orgmbiensome server could just run with a policy to not remove anything03:41:18
