Rocco made me hop again just after I got Solus plasma all set up because he mentioned the work porting the elementary menu to Ubuntu budgie yesterday. So I went back to Solus budgie and decided to try to build it, when I got hung up I downloaded the Ubuntu budgie iso and installed it on a live image and although I never had as much of a problem with the default menu as Rocco it is so much better than the default, it just feels and looks like it fits so much better. Since I’m about 95+% sure that Solus won’t package I know it’s either build it from source or hop but Solus has spoiled me, especially booting, everything including arch just feels like I’m waiting for a snail to cross the road on boot up. I know this is part of Solus sometimes if you want something you have to build it from source, but this one I can’t figure out how to get all dependencies met, ticked them off one by one until it got to appstream and I can’t seem to solve it. So then I looked at the others and think there’s likely to be additional dependencies I can’t meet easily.
None of those seem to bring up anything in searching. So am I fighting a losing battle?
