It seems there is more broken software applications that won’t initialize. Maybe it has something to do with Qt4 vs Qt5, gtk2 vs gtk3, KDE4 apps vs KDE5 plasama apps. . . etc. I wouldn’t know. But so far here’s my view of what works and doesn’t work. A lot of 3rd party apps and some in AUR work fine, some also apps work fine in Wine, but i’ve got a slew of things that don’t work or initialize. Here’s a list if it matters to anyone (i.e. people that are involved in the development and coding aspects of getting everything to work together in harmony.) Maybe I’m missing something here totally. . . Apps that don’t work:
plan work package
scribus (locks up during font caching)
Another issue is some icons don’t show up in Gnome ( i.e. abiword when installed). Also Numix icons once and awhile in the side bar menu revert back to older icon styles then back to numix. . . can’t say why.
