Well, I have been hearing about Trisquel 8 Flidas for a while. I was very curious to see how it would look like with the MATE Desktop.

Finally, I have downloaded a daily image from 20th of March and explored it.

I'm sharing a few screenshots here. You can find more screenshots in my blog, DistroScreens.

Attaching screenshots again in comment, to generate thumb nail.

It seems that Flidas' default is for its windows to have a persistently visible scroll bar and on-screen arrow buttons at each end of it. I prefer this to the iOS - style simplified line scrollbar with no arrow buttons that is the default in Belenos.

However, I prefer a squared-off, Windows 95-2000 or MacOS 9 style look for the "thumb" and the ends of the scroll bar, rather than the rounded-off look that Flidas apparently uses as default.

Also, there seems to be a style inconsistency between the on-screen arrow buttons in the middle and furthest-back window in the first screenshot; the middle window has little filled-in black triangles while the furthest-back window has V's [note, I edited this part of my post to correct it].

You can change the theme if you do not like the default one.

Where are the Trisquel wallpapers available inside trisquel.info? I need them to be made of use for my Parabola/OpenRC and PureOS mini ISO installers.

In /usr/share/backgrounds (if I understood your question).

Thanks for the screenshots.

I was perplexed because I couldn't play any video, only sound, in VLC -- the window screen was blank. I changed video output to X11 and it came alive.

Instead of VLC I mostly use mpv.

Will cite now the first commandment of video viewing:

Thou shalt have no other video players before me

I love the way in which totem is evolving. I would use it always if I have a choice.

However, Ubuntu ships a patch with totem (at least till 17.10) which forces it to show menu bar even on full screen. Once it is removed (possibly will be removed in next Ubuntu release, as they are migrating to GNOME and custom patching is no more required), it will be an ideal choice.

How I learned to stop worrying and love mpv. Give it a go.

https://mpv.io/

It plays anything you throw at it. Easy to use with good keyboard support but has built-in controls that get out of the way.

F for full screen
Q for quit
0 for vol up
9 for vol down
Arrows for cue and rewind
J for subs
Spacebar for pause and resume
Plays DVDs ”mpv dvd://”

Used to use mplayer, switched to mpv and haven't looked back, with the possible exception of VLC for playing around with the equalizer and visualization plugins.

I <3 mpv, it just werks

I have a bunch of old laptops, the most recent one dating 2007. I use mpv 90% of the time. I only use mplayer with a few flags in order to play smoothly very demanding fullhd vids. Mplayer is slightly faster than mpv.

I was always a fan of totem. I was happy with the way in which it evolves with GNOME shell. Recently, I realized that, there is some performance issue while playing HD files on totem. The video suspends in between.

Then I gave a try with gnome-mpv and my experience was very much positive. It is able to stream HD videos without any issue.

That's great. I wasn't aware gnome-mpv was a thing. It's even in the Trisquel repos. It's a GUI for mpv. But, mpv doesn't need a GUI. ;-)

Anyway, thanks for the tip. I tried gnome-mpv. I find mpv easier and keyboard shortcuts faster, but I understand people who prefer buttons on their video players.

The beginners will mostly prefer buttons in media player. That is why a of distributions like Ubuntu Budgie, Ubuntu Kylin, Manjaro bspwm, E20, LXQT editions, Solus, Netrunner ..etc uses `gnome-mpv` as default media player.

They are not beginner distributions, are they?

Today, I explored the Trisquel 8 Mini edition as well. From some other forum posts, I was expecting LXQt to be default desktop environment. Still it is using LXDE.

A few screenshots are included here. More screenshots are available in my blog.

Like you I expect LXQt as the desktop for our Trisquel mini, too. I'm now going to make Parabola/OpenRC mini ISO that's using LXQt to be the default desktop, at parallel to https://liri.io, Xfce, finally wm-only shells.
I'm also planning to make PureOS mini ISO, still using GNOME desktop (LXQt is now broken in PureOS) but replaces with Epiphany, Balsa, AbiWord, GNUmeric agianst large apps like PureBrowser, Thunderbird, LibreOffice.

You can customize the look a fair bit, MATE and the old Gnome interface from T7 are both great setups.
