No offense, but considering that Deepin is Qt, wouldn't be more sensible to use Dolphin?

I just moved to Deepin DE today after using Xfce for quite some time.  I just wanted something that looked a bit more modern and Deepin certainly does that in spades.  I'm sure it'll take me a bit of time to get use to running it and wonder if there's any easy way to upgrade to 16.03 from the current 15.12 that I have installed now?  I'd like the most up to date version that I can get since it should have more bug fixes, ect. then earlier versions. Thanks in advance.

Nothing to do .. manjaro is rolling  ;) or you mean the look ?

As Ste74 pointed out, Manjaro is a Rolling Release, which means you install the distribution only one time and just keep it up to date. There's nothing else to it. ;)

And this explains why it takes a couple hours to get all the updates done after install,LOL.  Yep, being Arch based Manjaro is a Rolling Release and that's why I like it. Once you get your system tweaked the way you want it to be no need to do a new install a few years down the road like many of the Debian based Distros.  ;D

Maybe you should update your mirrorlist before the first update...

I do a "sudo pacman -Syu" to do my updates so my mirror list IS updated. Why mess with the GUI Updater when I can do it in the Terminal. ;)

@fasheng Are you from the Deepin development team? :)

@oberon This is a beautiful Manjaro spin! Love the theming and icon sets. Really, realy tasteful!
Thanks for this! I know I complained about the shortcuts etc, but that's just a minor "issue", if you even can call it that? 
I'm currently considering switching to Deepin of Cinnamon due to proxy server switching issues I have with the network at work.

Can you explain again what the problem about shortcuts is for you? I think I didn't really understand.
You did see that the shortcuts are all listed in the control center?
Multimedia-view ( <Super>+s ) is one of them, just it is called "Display workspace" - which I agree is not a good way of listing it ;) At least it should be in the plural: "Display workspaces", right? 8)

haha, I did see the shortcuts, Oberon :)
What I was trying to say is that there are a few terminal commands which is unique to Deepin and it's hard to find those on the internet. So, when one is trying to make a shortcut for an event (command) unique to the DE, we don't know what the command is called in order to bind it to a shortcut. Once such example is "dde-control-center show" command.
Your video demonstrating your way around the Deepin DE is extremely helpful.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that the capabilities of the DE seems a bit unknown to a new user that is considering to install it?

The Deepin version does seem to get better, deepinDE is still a little too unstable for me but the manjaro implementation is still nice

This is beautiful, thank you so much guys! Was debating on whether to install Manjaro (first time user here) or Deepin again but decided to go with Xfce until I saw that there was a Manjaro Deepin (I should've scrolled down further)! Had a few problems out the box such as the display looking a bit wonky on the first boot (a reboot did the trick) and the invisible pointer (mmmhmm google) but it's been fine ever since. Hopefully the updates fix the dock's smart hide function but it's not a deal breaker. Once again, thanks and keep up the great work!


Just noticed this is for 16.02...the above is for 16.03, sorry for that haha.

Yup. You nailed it.
