No problem @Naltap

Your options are numerous here, I found baph, yay, and yup to be all very decent choices.

Yea most of the things you mentioned are normal defaults, just minimalist.

You can change the rofi script bind to use -d to bring back the drun menu with icons, default is now just -r run.

@natemaia, i like it more & more.
the minimalist force to understand the system. i prefer than manjaro or other distrib with a lot package than i don’t use.
For you what is the best web browser with light security and performance: in this side i see than firefox have the same size than the kernel :wink:

Yay is pretty awesome. What I like about it is that it can be be used exactly the same way as pacman. (Don’t know if that’s stating the obvious)

Straight forward install.

$ sudo pacman -S git
$ git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git
$ cd yay
$ makepkg -si

Thx for the tips/how to @johnpiers . This can be of some help to the forum.

@Naltap Thanks man, that’s how I see it too :slight_smile:
Regarding your question about browsers, I’m a horrible example, I use chrome most of the time. I’ve used FF around 2010-2014, qutebrowser around 2017-2018, surf for most of 2018, then back to chrome when I got my new ryzen cpu and the usage went way up in other browsers.

TLDR; just use whatever one you like, they’re all kinda garbage in one way or another.


@johnpiers In AL you can do (don’t need git either, it’ll download a snapshot tar and extract)

baph -i yay

@natemaia Thanks i will test some different browser.
I will test too your tiling WM, yaxwm: light with some features vs i3 or dwm.
