I haven’t added the ppa, as I mentioned above. I have moved Linux Mint 19.1 Tessa to Disco, after this matter of creating a Cinnamon Remix came up few months ago. I tried to add Tessa Cinnamon to Disco base, but it is pretty hard, for it somehow becomes Linux Mint. So, why waste time? Clem and his team had done a good job.
I don’t think anyone challenged anyone to create a Cinnamon Remix here. @itzswirlz sort of promised he’d do it. He sort of challenged himself. If he can do it, good for him!
I can seriously vouch that the Cinnamon-Tessa-disco is practically the best, fully featured Ubuntu based distro at the moment. I use quite a few tweaked Disco based distros. I also have the so-called standard disco distros in another laptop too. Just to compare. I have the following, tweaked ones,
- Disco-Openbox with Nemo 4.0.6, without running the desktop,
- Disco-Budgie with Nemo 4.0.6 running the desktop,
- Disco-Ubuntu with Nemo 4.06 as the default file manager and running the desktop, without Nautilus at all in it, (It is Disco-Ubuntu, not Disco-Gnome)
- Disco-Unity with Nemo 4.0.6 running the desktop and with all the eye-candy,
of the gtk side.
It is interesting, when you don’t know how to code, but just use common sense to tweak the distro. Maybe, I’d continue 1 or 2 years more and then drop the whole thing. Getting old, and Linux is becoming quite boring.
Disco-Budgie is OK, but Budgie has too many settings. It doesn’t have a dedicated panel. The guy, who had the original idea of Budgie is gone. A person can be replaced on a job, but his thoughts cannot be. Budgie 11 would not happen. Sorry. The old web site is gone, so no one can get to the thoughts he had on Budgie 11. Anyway, all this is somewhat off topic. (I tested every single distro he made.)
