Hurdles of a customizer

So I've recently learned that Slim Display Manager is obsolete and ideally should be replaced with something else. Perhaps that's why systemd doesn't always actually turn off the power or reboots when it should, I thought, as I've read that it wasn't keeping up to date with systemd's stuff.

I've spent almost "the entire day" testing some other ones, and somehow none works just right. They mess with environment variables so that either the notification daemon doesn't work...

NEWS 170627 about Calamares Installer

New Blog -- Entropy Pump

Posted 06-25-2017 at 03:19 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I've started a new blog, Entropy Pump, hosted on my own colo server.

I'm not sure yet what the division of labor is going to be between Entropy Pump and this LinuxQuestions blog. The current notion is to make the LQ blog mostly about software (and Linux in particular) and Entropy Pump about everything else.

If that pans out, I will update the description of the LQ blog accordingly.
