User introductions

Hello everyone, I am from Argentina, an ex-MJ user and curiosity take me there. I am a KDE and Arch lover, so I really really interested in this distro, something else that calls my attention, the restoration of the BTRFS boot, I am using the BTRFS snapshot like 4 months and can restore at the start is excellent .
Then a lot of love for all the work and greetings from Argentina.

Hey there! Saying Hi! Long history with linux, my most recent distro was EndeavourOS, and before that Manjaro (And before that straight arch, and before that gentoo...and before that debian...and before that mandrake back in the day...)

I saw Garuda mentioned on the EnOS forum and decided to take a look and I had a lot of cruft resulting in a switch from GNOME to KDE, so I decided to reinstall and try something a little more configured. Enjoying it so far!

Hi to All,

First off is a BIG Thanks Garuda. I’m just getting started with Dr460nized and it is the best Linux ever. Eye Candy for sure and so many cool and useful features.

I’ve been using a few versions of Linux for the last 15 years. The first trial run dive was Knoppix on CD. Converted OFF WinDOZE then got Suse Linux and used it on a work desktop for approx 4 years. Next was Linux Mint on the same work desktop.

My daily use Asus laptop UL20A is now ancient. Upgraded it around 5 years ago to 4 Gb ram and 120 Gb SSD.

Used LXLE for nearly 8 years on the UL20A - it ran okay before the upgrade and was lightening fast after the upgrade. Before the upgrade I noticed that Opera browser was / is the biggest memory hog - and Firefox was not so heavy. I still like Opera and use it with only one or two tabs open and use Firefox for anything else with more tabs open. Opera with VPN on is mainly only for browser separation for when signed in with Google / YouTube. Rob Braxman yessiree...

A couple months ago got Zorin Lite and that works excellent too. Installs easy and runs good - never crashes.

I have only just recently found Garuda - and Dr460nized is — by FAR so good on this old Asus. I tried live sessions of many other Linux versions and 50% or so would either not load or make this old Asus crash.

A BIG thanks to all at Garuda for all your Excellent work. Dr460nized is WOW !!

Cheers to All, DV8

Hi,
I use Linux OS from time to time. I mostly used Ubuntu. But I always like KDE because it is beautiful, clean and provides a lot of customization. I used Kubuntu 20.10 for the last few months. When I installed Kubuntu 21.04, it got a problem with integrated Intel graphics and a dedicated Nvidia graphic card. I am using an old MacBook Pro (late 2013). Kubuntu 21.04 boots into a blank screen. I tried Opensuse KDE which also got the same problem. Next, I installed Manjaro KDE which did not recognize the wired and wireless adapters.

I recently heard about Garuda Linux from a few Linux YouTube channels. I installed it today. Garuda Linux looks like a modern and futuristic OS. I am running it on a USB flash drive. It works a bit smoother than Kubuntu. I hope to explore it further :blush:

:sob: :scream: :cry:

Use SSD or nvme stuff.
You use only live ISO or how do you install it on USB flash drive?

Welcome :slight_smile:

Thank you :pray:t4:
I am planning to install it on an external hard drive soon.
Currently I installed it on a 32GB USB flash drive using a live USB made with Balena Etcher. :slightly_smiling_face:

Found and installed Garuda and loving it so far with the exception of a couple of issue which I'll create separate post about. I've been using Linux on and off for over 20 years. I finally jumped in completely a couple years back.

Hello, I really like your distro. I'm a devotee of Lord Krishna, and would like to help out. I'm a graphic designer of over 20 years. You can see my site at <promotion link>

Who should I be in touch with regarding areas for graphical elements?

@SGS is one of the founders of the distro, and the main graphic design artist for Garuda. I'm sure he'd value anyone with talent who'd like to assist. He will probably be along before too long as he never sleeps :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Welcome to the Garuda community.

New ideas and inspiration for wallpaper are always welcome. :slight_smile:

Just make a topic under #showcase
in the style "Wallpaper by rajagopala"

So I have always done it with projects that I wanted to support.
I assume that everything you post here is from you and FOSS. :slight_smile:

Hello there, a hi @all from germany. To be precise from saxonia.
I was registered here already but at some point my account must have been deactivated because of inactivity.
Never mind, i'm back. :slight_smile:
I was hopping back to windows for gaming but the usability drove me back to linux.
First Mint for about two weeks but i missed the AUR (adding PPA's is a pain in the a**) and also all the useful tools of garuda.
Keep up the great work, you've created a decent distro. :ok_hand:
I really like that you've implemented pipewire as audio environment. The new easyeffects is great.
