@cris_p:matrix.orgcris_pI think it was OpenMotif what gave me trouble.19:07:18
@cris_p:matrix.orgcris_p
A Slackware person should take over this page.

@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombAre there plans to merge MATE into the master branch like Plasma 5 was?20:51:55
@cris_p:matrix.orgcris_pHopefully.21:28:05
@cris_p:matrix.orgcris_pStill find it hard to believe that Slackware is the only distro that can make KDE work on my machine, hard to choose CDE over this.21:29:01
@cris_p:matrix.orgcris_pXFCE somehow ran worse, and it didn't have any archiving tools, making SlackBuilds a real hassle.21:29:43
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombXfce's been on a downward performance trend, I hear.22:51:19
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombFor a time, it was benchmarking worse than Plasma 5.22:51:33
@hunter0one:halogen.cityHunterUsing CDE today? Amazing. I find desktop environments from before the GNOME 3 / Plasma era much better22:55:31

Wow.

@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombStable's 4.12 is still pretty tight, but it's also still based on GTK 2.23:01:49

I haven't heard any rumblings about it.

Have you already installed MATE on your system?
03:33:22
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombNo, but I know that LiveSlak offers it as an environment choice.04:15:01
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange Bomb * No, but I know that LiveSlak offers it as an environment choice.04:15:17

I guess you haven't seen this here: https://github.com/mateslackbuilds/msb
You could give it a try.

Stable's 4.12 is still pretty tight, but it's also still based on GTK 2.
gtk3 is a regression
09:26:01
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombSure feels like it.09:26:11
@rbn:orgizm.netrbnwasn't gtk3 the thing which suddenly decided that the window managers window decorations are a thing of the past and not to be used anymore?09:28:16
@rbn:orgizm.netrbni remember something like having to fumble in a config to get them back09:29:03
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombGTK3 has been very insistent on client-side decorations.09:29:44
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombBecause they think it's the responsibility of every program to write its own decorations.09:30:25
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombIf they weren't writing it on Macs with 16:9 panels, maybe the GNOME team would realize that.09:31:07
@rbn:orgizm.netrbn:D10:19:06
@cris_p:matrix.orgcris_p Is slapt-get worth getting in current year?12:34:18
@orangebomb:poa.stOrange BombUnless it does more than Slackpkg, I wouldn't bother.12:39:44
@drgibbon:matrix.orgdrgibbonmore than slackpkg+ perhaps?13:23:22
@drgibbon:matrix.orgdrgibboncould be a decent metric :)13:23:38
