Oh wow, I guess I checked right before the update. Thanks!
I have installed both the KDE (Dragonized) and Gnome versions of Garuda and both have an optional post installation step 'Install additional [KDE / GNOME] applications' but there is no further explanation or list of packages (at least that I could see).
Is there an easy way to see what packages are installed by this step? Does this step refer to a specific metapackage?
Have you checked to see if detailed on the gitlab?
Here are the lists: (should be selfexplaining I guess?)
Thank you @dr460nf1r3 just what I was looking for!
Wow KDE installs a bunch more additional packages compared to GNOME, but I suppose this is inline with the philosophies of each DE.
Actually most of these are redundant as they are installed anyway, gotta clean this up
We use --needed so its okay
@Xeon will do it
After looking a little harder at the KDE package list...
"Upgrade to ULTIMATE: Do you want to install additional KDE components and applications?"
"Do you want to install additional KDE components and applications?" bluedevil breeze breeze-gtk drkonqi kactivitymanagerd kde-cli-tools kde-gtk-config kdecoration kdeplasma-addons kgamma5 khotkeys kinfocenter kmenuedit kscreen kscreenlocker ksshaskpass ksysguard kwallet-pam kwayland-integration kwayland-server kwin kwrited libkscreen libksysguard milou oxygen plasma-browser-integration plasma-desktop plasma-disks plasma-firewall plasma-integration plasma-nm plasma-pa plasma-systemmonitor plasma-thunderbolt plasma-vault plasma-workspace plasma-workspace-wallpapers polkit-kde-agent powerdevil systemsettings colord-kde appmenu-gtk-module quota-tools ark dolphin dolphin-plugins filelight gwenview kamoso kate kcalc kcron kdeconnect kdf kdialog keditbookmarks kfind khelpcenter kio-extras kio-fuse kio-gdrive kleopatra kompare konsole krdc krename krfb ksystemlog kwalletmanager okular partitionmanager spectacle yakuake
...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...
"Upgrade to ULTIMATE: Do you want to install additional GNOME components and applications?"
"Do you want to install additional GNOME components and applications?" gpaste eog-plugins grilo-plugins seahorse-nautilus gtkhash-nautilus gnome-logs gnome-remote-desktop gnome-sound-recorder vino rygel shotwell lollypop
...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...
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.
I don't use anything other than Appimages and paru (pacman+AUR)
Ok, then I kind of cheated my way through.
I use one more on top.
You can use whatever you want but flatpack and snapcraft are not supported by Garuda.
