Fuck me, I did it! Managed to get Singularity viewer installed from the AUR. Whooopee. Unfortunately my favourite ArchLinux derivative Manjaro wasn’t cooperative, so I installed a much more pure vanilla Arch-like system, OB Revenge’s MATE Revenge. Ouch, I always was afraid of that stuff. This is so much closer to upstream Arch and stupid little girls like Orca should stay away from that geeky shit.
So for now I’ve only installed it on MiniMe, my lame-ass Lenovo mini PC. Just to get accustomed to it, and see how life is on that system. No more nanny to chaperone me, no safezone, no security buffer. This is hardcore Linux, the professional league. I’m crapping my pants as I write this.
Buuut! Nevertheless! I managed to install my fave viewer and get Orca’s ass inworld!
So if all goes according to plan – and what could possibly go wrong? – I’ll switch this production computer over from my old and trusted Manjaro to the young and wild MATE Revenge in a couple days. Let’s see how all that’ll pan out for me and MiniMax.
