@osomfinch said in Touchpad doesn't work on Deepin:
I just had this thought in my mind and you made it real.
hehehe… same with me! It was just a thought, but combined with almost no experience and not a single bash command memorized, I somehow managed to pull it off. (It took me over a month of working on it almost every day, so I’m just as surprised I actually did it as you are to have Deepin on Antergos!)
Which ultimately leads me directly into your next comment:
By the way, is there any help you might need with maintaining the distro? I am not a very experienced user but if there’s something I could do I will gladly help.
Any help would be amazing! And no worries about inexperience or limited knowledge. As I mentioned above, I have neither experience nor much linuxfu skills at my disposal (although you may be glad to hear I finally figured out the cp and rm commands…). So basically, your help, no matter how small, would be appreciated more than you can know. I’ll send you a message in a minute going more into detail about that.
Now, there are many things to improve in this desktop implementation. For examle, the problem of this thread, some applications are not visible in the Launcher. This are the things that I encountered but they were enough for me to use Linux Deepin instead of Antergos at this moment. But I will try it out from time to time and as soon as these problenms are gone and there are no new ones, I am fully in.
Yep. That one seems to be happening for certain people, although it appears random. For some reason, custom made applications seem to not be visible, but ones installed from Pamac are. However, I have recently located the source of the issue… sort of. The blame appears to fall solely in the hands of the menu feature in Deepin, as other custom menus will display the disappearing programs. How to fix this, now that is another matter entirely!
Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it
