Everything About Packages

After looking a little harder at the KDE package list...

...It looks like many of these packages (konsole, kate, dolphin, plasma-desktop for instance) would be installed during the initial installation.

Is there a way to see just the additional/new packages that would be installed?

The same step for gnome...

...appears to only list the additional/new packages which will be installed.

edit: oops, looks like the conversation moved forward before i posted (took me forever to format it lol, i'm new to discourse).

I think gnome-web should be added.

If you point me to a list of the packages that are installed by default during installation, I would be happy to manually cross-reference and put together a list of only the differences. I imagine there is a smarter more automated way to accomplish this but I am a luddite... :wink:

3 posts were split to a new topic: Live ISO not updating properly

After almost 2 hours and a few failures, I managed to get Flightgear up and running on Garuda KDE.

I was wondering how to get my hands on riseup email, and thanks to this guy I now know that riseup-vpn exists. It's one of the first FOSS VPN's, so we should definitely add this and recommend it in case someone needs a VPN.

Extra sausages (German idiom) have to be cooked by yourself.
You can get Riseup-VPN via the Snap-Store. Garuda supports that.

Nope :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

I don't use anything other than Appimages and paru (pacman+AUR)

You can use whatever you want but flatpack and snapcraft are not supported by Garuda. :slight_smile:

My 2c (i'm a bit protective of riseup):

Riseup is a small donation dependent not-for-profit collective with limited resources. I have a lot of respect and gratitude for what they do. But recommending or promoting their services to a broader audience may harm them. It may place an unsustainable burden on them financially or negatively effect the quality of service if too many new users were to join without understanding that the services they use require resources and are dependent on voluntary donations (they charge $0 and estimate running the VPN costs $60 per user per year). I would at the very least check with them, before promoting them in any public way.

An alternative to look into (with a less delicate business/funding model) is AirVPN. They have supported linux for many years (they have their own linux client and support network-manager intergration). They support a range of open source and internet freedom projects (including several linux distros, Tor, OpenBSD, OpenNIC, The EFF, and Riseup.net). They primarily rely on the OpenVPN protocol and are considering adding support for Wireguard (both of which are open source). They have a fairly active forum, and compared to other VPN's I've used they seem to actually devote some time and effort to linux users (in part because they began as an activist focused organization serving more serious users more likely to be using privacy focused linux distributions (like Tails).

Probably its better not to promote any of these services in any official way, but if one were to be promoted, I think promoting one which would benefit/could handle the promotion would be better than promoting a service which might be harmed by it (at least not without getting their consent first)

Now I understand why it took you so long to send.
Well researched!

  1. Riseup-vpn do not officially support Arch Linux.
  2. To 8. They also do not officially support Arch Linux.

Our servers are not there to support the games/ software you like, unless they are really necessary.

But every distro I have used (except arch-based) has Flightgear, it's not that I only like it, I am telling you it's getting popular day-by-day. It's just a fantastic project, and I think Garuda should include it in their repositories.

At least you can include riseup-vpn, anyone who wants to use a VPN, it's a great choice and you can with a click of a mouse. I use this VPN from the AUR it works flawlessly, but it just takes some time to install.

The same is with Flightgear, it is in the AUR, works out-of-the-box, but takes some time to install. If you doubt Flightgear please do check it out yourself.

It is a humble request, and it would benefit the community. Trust me it would be worth it.

Thanking you
