First some feedback:
Default theme sucks. I suggest default to have:
Appearance Style: Greybird
Font: Montserrat Medium size_11
Window Manager: None are good, need more (a bit thicker title bars needed) but meanwhile, Bluebird is doable.
RAM usage is beyond words. On my Parabola system, Plasma uses 500MB of RAM max while doing nothing. Qubes dom0 itself uses 4GB!!! I have 16GB ram and almost all of it is used currently. I have 7 Qubes open. Not many processes in them, 3 applications, firefox, keepassxc and ‘qubes update’. This must must must go down!
Qubes-update should print more while updating, not just after updating.
How to install linux-libre kernel? And have only free packages?
Will it break anything? I’ve found Qubes to be extremely sensitive to tinkering.
There are no gentoo and archlinux templates in the community repo. I use the command:
sudo qubes-dom0-update --enablerepo=qubes-templates-community qubes-template-archlinux qubes-template-gentoo
No match for argument: qubes-template-archlinux
No match for argument: qubes-template-gentoo
I feel lucky to be using Qubes! Thanks guys for this fantastic OS!
