Maybe I’ll have to give Manjaro another try. It’s been a few years.
Have they squished the bugs in Pamac yet? The last time I tried Manjaro, I’d have to clean the cache, remove and reinstall the keys, and then run pacman in the shell, almost every time there was an update. That was on both my laptop and a desktop. I was pretty puzzled by it because I never had that problem in Arch.
I really haven’t been doing much with desktop Linux lately because Win10 is stable and usable, and all the work software I adopted since swearing off Adobe runs on Windows. I should make a post about my Adobe replacements one of these days.
I’m also using Mountain Duck and Backblaze rather than RDC to work remotely nowadays. I used to like Arch / Manjaro partly because the RDC app (Vinagre?) on that platform seemed to work better than any other one I’d tried, including Microsoft’s.
But I’d rather not use RDC at all for security reasons; so I switched to using Mountain Duck to map the laptop to the synced files on B2. Running the apps on the (Win10) laptop and mapping to the files remotely also eliminates the GUI lag.
I may still have Manjaro (or Arch) installed on the second drive in my “guest” machine. I have a physical selector switch in that machine to choose between the OS’s, but I haven’t used it in so long that I forget what’s installed on the second drive. I’ll have to check it out later. I know it’s some Linux distro. I just forget which one offhand.
