Hello folks: I am totally fed up with wayland and pipewire, so I’d like so much to get rid of both.
Not scared of rebuilding my system from scratch, but since it’s been working so good for over one year, I’d love to try and just cleanse it.
Reason? Call it pure hate. And/or I’m too old. And/or I want to.
My situation: Using bspwm only for years - other stacking DE non needed any longer.
You (Mr. Root) and you all who have kindly answered: THANKS - so appreciated.
I basically agree with what you (all) say: and just to answer to some legit and implicit questions of yours:
No, I’m not in a terminal condition, if you mean close-to-death : but I’m freaking terminal-maniac and bloody desktop-sick.
About Wayland: I use Linux for leisure and for work, also. And happens I need & want & choose VNC for remote assistance: and if I wanted to use some Microsoft Remote Desktop, I would be using a Microsoft environment. Moreover, me and Xorg/X11 have been in mutual love since its birth.
And anyway no: Wayland is not welcome here - at all. They say “it’s the future”: ok, I’ll mull it over when I’m grown up.
More explicit? “Wayland sucks.”
Pipewire… let’s say I don’t really hate it, although for my needings I still can’t figure out why the heck I have to use it: I mean, since when I met (Slackware, ~10 floppies?) Linux back in the late 90ies, I learnt I had/wanted to tailor it the way I chose and needed.
And I think this is one of the main reasons why today I use Arch (BTW): otherwise, I would stick to Canonical.
…That’s all: I’ll save you all my pills of wisdom about systemd (LOL), and meanwhile I’ll bear my (unrequested) burdens - at least until the n-th un-needed glitch will have me restart from scratch.
