Hi

I am an new user of Trisquel. I have been using Linux for many years. Mostly debian and gentoo. Most recently Devuan. I find trisquel a very satisfying distro. I had not used mate for a long time, but mostly used xfce. After trying mate out for a few weeks I have now again installed xfce. No problems.

I am a musician and most happy with what is available. One exception for me is musescore. The version in the repositories are simply to old. But an appimage does work but unstable. The age of this program is a shame because it is a part of gnu itself.

I have two other suggestions:

Why is the hwe-enabled version of the kernel not the default or at least available on the install image. That will solve a lot of newcomers problems. User who need the stability of the old kernel will know how to install it.

The other is why you do not have some of the free wifi dongles on sale in the gift shop. I would accept a good overprice there, and on the same time have an easy solution to the most common problem with linux libre.

Looking forward to contribute with my knowledge.

Have a nice day

I would install this PPA: https://launchpad.net/~mscore-ubuntu/+archive/ubuntu/mscore3-stable

The PPA is not under the control of the Trisquel project. As a consequence, the usual warning applies: you need to trust the administrators to not make you install proprietary software or even malware along an apparently trifling update.

Hi

Using a ppa defeats kind og defeat the purpose of trisquel as I see it. Then I could just use Ubuntu or even better devuan or Debian. I trust appimages more. But I might try to build IT myself from source someday

Have a nice day

Hej Lars.

Er du bekendt med Fri Software Netværk? Vi har møder ca. en gang om måneden. Vi har eksisteret i ca. halvandet år, men er stadig ved at finde ud af, hvad vi skal og hvordan. Der bliver også snakket teknisk, men vi er mest interesseret i, hvordan vi får spredt kendskab til og brug af fri software, og hvordan vi kan skabe politisk opmærksomhed og forandring. Hvis du er på Matrix kan du møde mange af os på #fsn:data.coop

Hilsen Jacob
