Maybe I will add pulseaudio in the next ISO. But a lot of people uninstall it.

Do you have a source for that statement? Maybe we should made a poll about pulseaudio vs alsa.

I think pulseaudio must be included, as in all the other spins (XFCE, KDE, Gnome). It is more compatible and trouble free.

Ok, I guess it should be alsa then. I can install pulseaudio.

- if you install pulseaudio by default, it fulfills the manjaro philosophy: user-friendly linux at it's best.

- if you do not install pulseaudio by default, it is a light but less user-friendly system.

please consider the many users, which are not active on the forum or do not have a forum account, too.

i think the silent majority (all the manjaro users, who are not active in this forum) would appreciate pulseaudio.
it would make manjaro lxqt more user-friendly (but heavier on hardware resources), especially for users of multiple sound devices.

personally, i uninstall puleaudio on all of my systems, because i do not need it. my headset does not have a usb plug.

i think it could be a good thing to create a wiki page (e.g.: how to speed up manjaro lxqt) and describe how to uninstall pulseaudio, how to disable systemd startup services (e.g. modem manager, network connect, etc.) and other tips.

After some testing I think that networkmanager is more user friendly tan CMST. The gui from cmst is ver cryptic. I know it is GTK, but i think that the user should be over the purism of the system.

Also, today I installed the iso into another laptop, and it installed a barebone lxqt, without any setting, completly clean. Strange.

Network-manager is heavy and gtk2, so not for a leightweight Qt environment.

First I didn't like conman, but now I think it's ok. Linux has to offer more than "a popular os", but you have to spend some time to learn few things. It's good to know more things, to compare and choose. Conman isn't ideal but it's working fine, and it's enough user-friendly. So there's no need for gtk stuff. I talked about its little problem here, but that's not critical.

 I'm glad to see that suspend works (finally! ) on lid close and I was able to change dpi settings. I wish I could have the android connection and a correct date & time settings. Oh I'm also surprised that octopi works faster now. Thanks Esclapion for your hard work. Your doing a great job!

For more userfriendliness there should be a gui for touchpad settings.

I can't connect my android smartphones to my netbook. Android connection works out of the box only in official manjaro xfce.

Are you sure that the two commands (or two alias, faster/better) needed for disabling startup services need a fully wiki ?

Open a new subject about that ? It's interesting, maybe only an application to install.

If the alias are well known, maybe not, but it's rarely the case. And it can be the beginning of an optimization tool.  ::)
