The clock! The @$H&$%* clock! I can't get it to show 12-hr instead of 24.
@c00ter, it goes like this:
Code: [Select]
gsettings set com.deepin.dde.datetime is-24hour false
 >:D
Where's the problem? ;D

edit: Guess it makes sense to install dconf-editor for this kind of things ... already on the Package list for the next build now. :)

Bernhard is our biggest nerd  :o He maintains i3, fluxbox and now deepin. Amazing takes on desktops I would never use. Deepin I might ...

You are absolutely right, it is tricky.
The situation right now is like this: I have created a pile of custom manjaro-packages. While the latest arch packages, partly already porting deepin 2015 changes are broken until all the adjustments have been made, the manjaro version is still working nicely with our 2014 time capsule ;) Like that I can wait until the arch packages are complete before I release new versions of the manjaro packages - or decide to use the arch community ones.
The other way round is a bit more tricky of course. If for example a gtk or other update of the base system would break deepin packages we'll have to see how to solve this. But the deepin developers are definitely very interested in seeing DDE ported to other distributions and their cooperation is extremely helpful and fruitful already. Also mmetak and felixonmars are doing their best to provide up-to-date packages for the arch community repo that work in the latest arch environment ...
This is all maybe not the most stable and reliable perspective but in any case really very exciting. 8)
Holding updates back from a "time capsule" contradicts the concept of a rolling release imho.

No. The same procedure is necessary on the way from unstable to testing to stable.
If you'd push packages from unstable to stable before the rest of the packages are at the same level the system will break.
Rolling release doesn't mean that you receive any update as soon as it is available. Things have to play together.

@Jeannie to get an impression of how this process works at the moment have a look here:
https://github.com/fasheng/arch-deepin/issues/99#issuecomment-152840897
I think we're on a very good way to make this work inside the arch rolling system :)

I have installed Deepin on a partition of my working machine now and I am amazed how smooth and fast it runs :o Very promising, indeed. 8)

Thanks, oberon. :D

To put things in perspective for those not that familiar with Deepin DE (DDE), oberon's build is essentially the same as Deepin's 2014.3 release, plus updates, plus new stuff for 2015, plus MJRO stuff, plus. Other than the blasted clock, everything else works just as Deepin's Ubuntu-based (at that time) release. Even better, based on my experience with both. (Example: Deepin's release insisted on re-setting my machine's clock to local time, and I really did not appreciate that.) And if anyone is having trouble decorating it, that problem was resident in Deepin's own build. Also, even though Deepin 2014 was based on Ubuntu, it received package updates to the DE and applications as they were released by the Deepin team, so IMHO it was/is more of a rolling-than-fixed/point release model.

Again, thanks Bernhard! :D

I'd suggest to ask your wife to wait just a few more weeks. There are some package changes ahead with the shift to deepin2015 - There will be a proper manjaro-deepin stable release then :)

Just re-installed your build today & updated it, Bernhard. Updates are doing some good. It's at least on-par with Deepin 2014.3 if not better.

Made an account just to say nice work!

I have been trying for a few hours to set deepin up on my manjaro setup to no avail,
but I'm glad to see it can be done. When its "stable" will you be making a way to set it up
straight from a standard manjaro setup to avoid needing to reinstall everything?

Either way good stuff

Thank you ben-ix! :)

straight from a standard manjaro setup to avoid needing to reinstall everything?
You mean as an alternative session on another install? That should be possible by adding the deepin-repo (as long as it is still needed), installing the right packages and maybe tweaking a few configs manually.
The easiest way will of course be to just install the ISO.
