FD 34 with the new Gnome 40
Fedora my go to distro when I just need stuff to work. I plan to duplicate my current i3 Arch setup on this new release they have integrated btrfs file system and will be making further improvements with regard to btrfs. Support in the fedora world is fairly good and friendly lots of online resources as usual a good trustworthy search engine is your friend.
Fedora has added an i3 spin in version 34 so setting up the rest should be fairly straightforward with a copy of my i3 configuration file setup just how I like it and away I go…..maybe!
Well let’s see what happens, I do have to work also so I will get it done in the bits in-between. Anyway I’ll be doing this initial setup as a VM so if it goes wrong I can simply start over.
Bring it on!
As you can see from the picture above I am all done with the install onto my laptop, there will be some fine tuning, however, all is now working well.
Here is a link to my config file if it helps anyone 🙂

Established in March of 2021. ItsSoLinux is my take on and ramblings about how I use and tinker with Linux. Yep just another bloke talking about opensource stuff.
- My latest discovery is as you can see Mabox a perfect balance of Arch (Manjaro base) and Openbox WM – http://openbox.org/. The dev has ensured that all is well. The distribution is easy to install with Calamares and has a small footprint on your machine, it is also easy on resources.
- The project home page MaboxLinux is very well laid out and explanatory. The forum is a really good place for friendly help and advice and for everything else you have the Arch Wiki Arch Linux.
- It is lightweight but fully featured, you have the Pamac software centre for all your apps and because of the Manjaro base everything just works.
- If you want to shake of those Ubuntu blues then definitely try this one out it might be a really good experience.
