    That sucks, is it the same for the flatpak version?

      I don't really like Flatpak, I am paranoid that ((they)) will be able to ship malware through editing the Flatpak packages to point to some other binary not made by Mozilla but some random neet jeet

        I am paranoid that rpmfusion will backdoor your system (you literally give them root access by installing MESA and codecs)

        Seems like gentoo might be for you, I would review all the code though 😉

        Anon, the deb binaries have the problem as Flatpak or Snap.

        why does do you think canonical is not backdooring snaps? the backed is private like fedora why are you not using community distros like arch/debian SID?

        Anon, this is the selling point of Snaps. Centralized backend. You know paid professionals are working on there.

        Literally glowies will backeddoor any package and you will be never noticed.

          I often reinstall and configuring Arch would take foreveeeeer, plus I like .deb packages, everyone supports you, and Ubuntu/Debian repositories are bigger than Arch (I will never use the AUR)
          >why does do you think canonical is not backdooring snaps?
          They might as well backdoor my kernel, nothing I can do about that, but I'd rather not have third party random NEETs backdooring me
          Debian sid sucks from my experience, I've had a lot of breakage when I used it, last time I tried to upgrade to it it was broken with package conflicts and missing packages (perhaps it was a package migration they had, not sure)

            it takes not even 10 minutes using the archinstall script with no reading required, from there you can add your desktop environment and start using your PC without ever dealing with a terminal
            >Ubuntu/Debian repositories are bigger than Arch (I will never use the AUR)
            welcome to linux since you are starting now i will not call you moronic but the thing is it does not matter what format is used as long as you are using UNIX binaries, this would be like refusing to download a .ZIP file because you think .7z is superior
            >I'd rather not have third party random NEETs backdooring me
            thats the point of open source you mongoloid if someone is backdooring you, there is another thousand NEETs reading the commits which creates the hawthorne effect

            I tried archinstall 5 times and the install was broken every single time, I needed an encrypted drive and it broke, the bug hasn't been fixed and it's been open for a long time

            I've been using Linux since 2012, what I am saying is that not all software is packaged for Arch in the same way that it is packaged for Debian/Ubuntu when you're installing something out of your repository.

        They're just so easy and comfy to use and with just a few clicks you can grant or revoke access to file system, home folder, opengl, network etc.
        I used to write Dockerfiles for every software I use, but with snaps there's just no need for it anymore, because it does the same but better

    apt purge snapd
    apt pin snapd -100
    download thunderbird .zip
    install in ~/.local/lib
    create .desktop file
    it updates itself

    If you really want a .deb you can probably find some PPA or use the debian version.

      Kubuntu 24.04 uses Plasma 5.27.11 (which is more sensible for an lts distro, plasma 6 is a mess)

      Sure, but also with Debian the MESA version is too old for RADV_PERFTEST=gpl which improves performance in vidya

    Install SpiralLinux, it's preconfigured Debian Stable with Btrfs snapshots and Flatpak out of the box. It's avaliable in 8 flavours. I installed the Plasma flavour; after installation, I proceeded to remove the custom Numix theming and reinstalled most of the graphical applications from Flathub. I also installed plasma-workspace-wayland to be able use the Plasma Wayland session.

    Snap sucks so hard.
    I've been running the latest mozilla debs since 23.04
    Just add their ppa: https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

    And then disable the snap crap with snap disable thunderbird
