      I have one too and switching from Silverblue to Macos makes me realize how far ahead Gnome and Silverblue are in terms of usability. It's actually ridiculous and I'm not even joking.

    I've been getting horny for universal blue the last week or so. I don't really want 'opinionated' Aurora/Bazzite but it looks like it might be quite straight forward to create my own flavour and still have a rock solid system.

      I literally just install stock silverblue and the nvidia drivers on top and thats it.

        >silverblue
        I want a bit more control than choosing silverblue or kinoite, I haven't looked too closely but I guess that building up from CoreOS would be a bit too much effort hence my interest in universal blue but I'll do some more research before i get really stuck into anything

      Need to get into it, my ideal configuration would be something like this but XFCE + i3 or bspwm. Also ideally i'd like native Firefox + codecs shitware because the Flatpak version has minor annoyances like lack of integration with Native Host browser extensions like KeePassXC's. If i understand right, RPMFusion cause minor repo sync annoyances though.

        Yeah that sounds pretty swish, i saw there's a bug at the moment that you can't force add a package that's been removed from a prior layer (if i've understood correctly) so it's not possible to add native firefox to anything built from universal blue and at least one maintainer seemed pretty hostile to the idea (people won't reboot and be up to date etc) which was a bit off putting. Personally I don't like the idea of integrating password manager and browser so for me that's not an issue but i've never really gotten into the Flatpak ecosystem.

          I would have to start from one of their Kionite images then. If i can get KeePasXC to work with Firefox i can deal with the rest really, i don't even mind using Plasma cause i'd just avoid theming it much.
          Still, the part that annoys me the most of all this is that everything is scathered through a bunch of repos and discourse posts and is easy to forget where are the """manifest""" repos that you can use as reference to make your own. I can't find the ones used by Aurora right now i.e., the cleanest one i saved weeks ago was this one and that's because someone posted it here.

            Yeah it's a bit messy, Aurora got moved into the bluefin repo which is hardly intuitive
            https://github.com/ublue-os/bluefin
            Maybe i should stop being too precious about 'building it' and just pick silverblue or kinoite as a base, after all i've currently got gnome on desktop and plasma on laptop and both are "fine"

            This is probably what i am looking for, for frick's sake, the problem is i have to find where is the Kionite image i should put in the FROM (line 3).

            Is it the image you're after or the Containerfile to build it yourself? I can't find the latter but the images are hosted here

      It's not that opinionated, Aurora is great because it basically adds drivers and codecs and firmwares on Kinoite. Very much install and everything works.

        i saw a comment from a maintainer where they said something to the effect of
        >if rpm-ostree adds the ability to force add a package that is removed in a lower layer i will do everything i can to prevent users installing native firefox

            Does installing Firefox in a Distrobox allows you to use Native Host extensions? That's the one thing i'd have to test.

          • 4 weeks ago

            i've never used them myself, but i would assume if you have your browser and password manager in the same distrobox that might work

            I'll have to test this usecase then, i'm sitting in a fence right now between another Debian install or trying out this. I'm not entirely sold on the overhead of using a container.

      Obviously this might happen but it seems like the gimmick of this family of distros is they are designed around not only a rock solid experience for users but a much reduced burden on maintainers.

      even if the maintainers stopped working on the distro, the images will automatically build using github actions and it will provide updates

    Fedora plans to remove Xorg from its repos by the time they release 41, so that rules it out for me, so much shit is gonna break. They drink their own cool aid too much.
