Latest Gnome 46 update breaks this.

Login fails as --builtin flag doesn't exist on gnome-session. Removing the flag only gives a partially working session.

On top of the i3 settings there is another system of specifying settings called "Xresources". You can see in the /etc/regolith/i3/config file how these are applied. But if you ever need to add a new i3 setting not covered by Regolith's i3 config file, you need to mess with both the i3 config file and Xresources.

That's not true, though. You never have to touch ~/.Xresources-regolith. It's always done for you.

I understand Regolith 2 has been launched since more than a year ago, so it's likely the latest documentation is out of sync with version 1.6 used by this package. One of the reasons it feels very messy.

I had to dig deep to find why some apps take 10+ seconds to start. Managed to find a workaround after understanding things normal people should not have to: systemctl --user mask xdg-desktop-portal-gnome --now.

Gnome-terminal was not even starting, but the workaround above fixed it. Even so, win+enter was starting it much slower than the one started from the command line. I tried to search for what exactly is being started, to figure what the difference is; grepped config files for "term", but nothing found. The official way to change the terminal is to run Ubuntu's update-alternatives, available from AUR. No luck.

The official way to disable elements in the status bar is to uninstall the corresponding package, but here all are installed in the same regolith-i3xrocks-config package. I changed AUR config files before, but just another "too much".

With win+shift+? you can see the keyboard shortcuts, but it's too damn many. I did manage to accidentally hide the status bar with win+i, for example. I did not look too much, but I failed to find how to get rid of them. Oh and they use hjkl instead of jkl; just to mess with your head. :)

Comically, when pressing win+esc to lock the session, sometimes when returning the windows last displayed were visible instead of the UI for unlocking the session. I still had to type the password and press Enter to be able to use them windows. Very confusing.

Looking forward to Regolith 2/3/etc, maybe they simplified some things, it would be really nice to have GNOME+i3wm without bells and whistles.

thanks for this PKGBUILD.

how's your progress for v. 2.x?

do you need a hand testing / writing / updating the PKGBUILD for v. 2.x ?

if the progress you've made for v. 2 is publicly available, i'm sure some of us may be willing to help you test and/or update the PKGBUILD.

do let us know if there's anything we can do :)

@gardot426 all good now. thanks.

catman, try again. rofitheme.patch now passes the validity check, and everything builds.

Thanks @gardotd426 :)

@Granitosaurus: Yeah, it's an extraordinarily huge amount of work to move over to 2.0, mostly because of things that would sound incomprehensible to average users. TL;DR is that Regolith 2.0 COMPLETELY reworked the very way that Regolith itself (and all of its associated apps) work on a fundamental level. So basically, I have to start from scratch and will only be able to keep maybe 15% of my original 700+ lines of work from Regolith 1.X. I am indeed working on it. It's coming asap.

rofitheme.patch fails the validity check on 1.6-14 update.

@gardotd426 do you need any help with this? I'd love to try Regolith 2.0 but the build does seem to be very involved.
