This 2017, I accidentaly moved from Arch to openSUSE. It just happen without planning. I must admit, my plan is Gentoo. I know this article is a little bit too average, and the screenshot is also boring. Boring is good for business. I’m a little bit of running out of time, so I’m a kind of in need of stable OS to get my job done.

Two times in 2017, my 2009 old notebook has some hardware issue. The first time is in August, this event pushed me to use other computer other than my notebook. So I installed tumbleweed at home multiboot, along with my previously installed Mageia, and I installed [tumbleweed, rawhide, and KaOS] in my office multiboot along with previously installed Debian. After my notebook get better form the service shop, I switch from Manjaro to Artix and from Debian to Devuan.

My second hardware issue is in December, pushed me to use my openSUSE again. So I decide to get the environment right for me. In my office, I set up administrative thing such as samba. And live happily with KDE. At home, I set up window manager. I’m not really a fans of Desktop Ricing, but I love working Tiling Window Manager. And surprisingly openSUSE repository is good.

tumbleweed: i3

Well, it is my opinion as a Debian user and also and AUR user. So here is what I just did

Download from repository with zypper

  • xmonad herbstluftwm awesome bspwm i3-gaps

  • mpd cava ncmpcpp mpclient cmus

  • scrot feh nitrogen scrot compton xcompmgr

  • rofi dunst dzen2

  • lxappearance conky xfontsel gucharmap

  • oh-mybash, oh-my-zsh, fish, powerline

  • vim, emacs, vim-plugin-NERDtree

Download rpm manually then zypper

  • lemonbar

  • termite

Installer for specific language

  • TERM::Extended-Color (via cpan)

  • ls++ (git clone)

  • gtop (via npm)

  • qtile (via pip)

  • jekyll (via gem) to blog

Copy paste manually form Arch

  • from .fonts in Arch Linux to .fonts in openSUSE

Not solved yet (I’m busy) (maybe compile manually later)

  • polybar

I had setup a few, such as i3, it works flawlessly. And surprisingly it does not take a long time to setup. Awesome works well, but I still have trouble login to bspwm.


Feliz Año Nuevo

This new year, I also give up my geany for ViM and emacs. It is just me that need to learn.

tumbleweed: Vim and emacs

And I also learn to communicate in some spanish telegram linux group, with help of google translate. Larga Vida Resistencia.

I guess I’m going to continue using openSUSE.

Welcome 2018
