  • Arch to Debian: best practice for managing repos unavailable through apt

    deb-get For last resort. But DistroBox and Flatpak will give you all the software you want.
  • Is there something similar to the AUR for Pop!_OS?

    There's no dark magic involved. That software basically has its own repository built in:

  • All the problems I had with Pop OS as a user coming from Windows

    The first thing I would do here is make sure that your keyboard is set to the correct locale and layout. You can check this under Settings -> Keyboard The next thing to note is that the key code send by laptop keyboards are often proprietary and don't work out of the box. You can use xev / xorg-xev to see what key code is returning and update your key bindings. What is the recommended way to install applications? Ignore the Pop OS shop? Is it an app to app decision? Thank you for the recommendation. Use apt or the pop shop for most things but for proprietary things I'd use deb-get or just download directly. Flatpaks and Snaps are great but doesn't always have the best system level integrations. This is a serious problem with Linux on the desktop in general and I'm looking forward to an os agnostic package format becoming dominate.

    Lastly, deb-get + pacstall + bauh. All of these combined covers 99% of my software needs, much less need to find and install PPAs and .deb manually. Still not as convenient as AUR, but much better than it was before. Hopefully, eventually everything is on Flatpak, snap, or AppImage so I could just use Bauh for most apps, but for now, I'm glad that these tools exists.
  • Want to move to linux

    I got my start to Linux with PopOS, and so I will vouch for that. They look good, have good tools, and cares a lot about the desktop experience. Also, they have a built-in recovery partition, so even if you f'd yourself, you can reset from the Settings menu or from the boot menu. It is Ubuntu-based, and be sure to check out deb-get and pacstall for some third-party apps.
  • I've been using Linux for a week , and i'm starting to like it

    Nice. If you're looking for apps on PopOS and other Ubuntu derivatives, you can also use deb-get and pacstall to get certain 3rd party and proprietary apps not in the package manager.
  • New to Pop/Linux what am I doing wrong when downloading programs?
    2 projects | /r/pop_os | 26 Sep 2022
    I recommend using deb-get. Works like a charm for me.

    To easily install some well known 3rd parties software like google chrome you can use [deb-get](]. I think it is really easy and comfortable.
  • Steam (deb/apt) shows error message

    Hm, have you tried installing via deb-get or pacstall? They should be able to pull all the optional dependencies. Speaking of, often enough I install winehq's wine-staging first so that they could pull newer versions of some of the dependencies first.
