A driver manager is a driver manager is a driver manager, so why invest scarce developer resources into graphical gimmicks that are used a very few times ?
The distro is called SolydXK. I refer to the overall work of the 2 spins - Kde & Xfce. How do I differentiate ideas worth suggesting and ideas to not suggest?
I would not necessarily call it a 'low value feature'. The Mint team has more resources but I agree that they have more to do than the SolydXK guys.
what are you talking `bout - SolydX or SolydK
so; Xfce or KDE - or
in case of your installed OS Linux Mint DEBIAN Edition =
if so: You should read (really READ) this:
You can hardly compare apples with pears or bananas ...
In any case;
thanks for your efforts, but this place is not meant to deal with ideas
of this nature,
there are forums for it:
This is a low value feature that requires a fair bit of effort. That effort is better spent on high value features. SolyXK does little development and only features 2 desktops. Mint has four desktops and are involved in the development of two of them. Mint has 2 upstream distros SolydXK only one. So I challenge your statement that Mint has more resources available.
But if SolydXK which has a lot less resources has this handy feature, I reckon the Mint team can do it too.
LMDE is based on Debian and most base system functionality is inherited directly from Debian. Mint does not have the resources to develop all the tools in a distribution
Why would I suggest on debian.org to get a Driver Manager added to LMDE? Surely this is a Linux Mint decision.
Driver manager is inherited from the upstream base distro. Direct your suggestion to debian.org
