here are bugs ive found while using trisquel 9. trisquel 8 was perfect... i'll miss it.

triskel 9 KDE, resource heavy, windows 10 like, slowish

trisquel 9 MATE, No vpns connect, openvpn, wireguard, none work.

trisquel 9 mini, Tor browser wont launch, and some websites wont load at all.

I'm glad Triskel 9 KDE works fine, buts its just overly animated and slow. Trisquel 8 Was perfect in every way, everything worked and it was designed perfectly. trisquel 9 is buggly, Wireguard doesnt work on the entire kernel trisquel 9 is using, VPNs wont connect on the standard Trisquel 9 MATE installation, and Trisquel 9 Mini wont/cant load Tor Browser, and some websites wont load even using firefox...

Please bring back the Trisquel 8 Mindset, Trisquel 8 was perfect.

Hello, this may not be a problem of Trisquel, but of several distributions.

The wifi board cannot be turned on by hardware, the same happens in Debian 10. See information at

Hi SwissScientist

Yes - “triskel 9 KDE, resource heavy, windows 10 like, slowish” - I find the same compared to v8 yet not so slow or resource heavy as mint, ubuntu, PopOS etc.

Yes - "Trisquel 8 Was perfect in every way, everything worked and it was designed perfectly.” What a pity it had to change as ubuntu 16.04 LTS came to end of life.

I started to play with Trisquel-mini v9 because it was so light on resources and so fast. I then got used to and even like LXDE; then started to add all the usual apps present in the full version of Trisquel so ended up calling it miniMAX-OS and now use it on a Dell E6420 with 8G RAM - it is so fast and snappy - I love it.

Some time back I played with Trisquel-mini v8 32bit on a 20 year old CAD workstation and was shocked to find only 143MB RAM used at idle - is this a world record...?

Trisquel-mini v8 143 MB RAM
miniMAX v9 260 MB RAM
Trisquel v9 Mate 380 MB RAM

I also have devised a test with a level playing field to compare various OS’s in real world action having several applications open whilst playing the FsF video on the GNU front page and then displaying a system monitor to show live results. Seems more relevant than ray-tracing or other benchmark tests.
