Just swapped my old SSD out of my laptop, and onto the test bench.  Updated Arch and disabled a few of my laptop specific scripts, and everything has been running without a hitch. :D

Very clean, I like it! What are some notable things you've done to get it to this point?

For myself I've recently changed from XFCE to KDE, and dare I admit I am enjoying it. I did need to do a lot of a tweaking to get it how I wanted it but suprisingly KDE is very customizable even from the GUI. I did not appreciate at first the massive amount of packages it brought in but for the nice look, ease of use, convenience etc I can deal with it

I enjoy it, after enabling and disabling some settings to get it to feel right such as having the location bar and using list view it was comfortable. I like that I can do things like drag files or folders, drop it, then have a menu to choose move, copy, or link - its a small feature I appreciate.

I had a strange crashing issue with Thunar I never solved, sometimes when dragging files or folders to another location all Thunar windows would close immediately. Dolphin hasn't had any edge cases or otherwise so far.

I would say it is pretty close to both Thunar and PCManFM, just done in QT and a 'smoother' GUI.

Good to know, thanks. I've been trying to decide on a good desktop setup for a long while. I'm still torn between the simplicity of a tiling WM and the GUI support of a stacking WM frown.gif

I am just running i3, so not too many tweaks on this install.  I added a few things to the i3 bar, but I need to change it up, since it is now a functioning desktop install.  I just use the i3 config to auto-launch some programs on start-up, and place them on certain windows/monitors.  I love the simplicity of just a tiling window manager.  I don't use most of the utilities that come with a full DE, and if there is something I want I just grab that utility.

I literally grew up on Debian. I ran Fedora for a while in the early aughts but  it never took and I made my way back to Debian-based. I needed stable and flexible for my work PC and neither Mint nor Ubuntu really fit the bill for my particular needs so I found myself trying openSUSE for the first time and I've got to say, I am in love.I'm finding it to be a wonderful centre between the Arch/Gentoo power-user distros and the somewhat fragile Ubuntu/Mint user-friendlies. I've got Leap 42.2 running on the work PC but I'll probably give Tumbleweed a try on an at-home system to see how openSUSE handles rolling.

My first ever Arch install. Not exactly the smoothest install of my life. lol But, some googling and I have been getting what I need. All the basics are in. Using Dolphin as a file manager. For some reason Dolphin will not let me browse the network. I am assuming there is some kind of package extension for it. Or I may need another package. Everything else works though. Wifi is up and running. Actually works better than it did on Mint for some odd reason. Really like it so far aside from Gnome. But, I can keep modding and tweaking till I like it.

samba is only for setting up shares? At least that is what I thought. I was planning to use the existing CIF shares on my FreeNAS. Same ones I used on Mint. I was looking for just a way to see the other devices on the network like Mint and Windows can do.
