In the Performance section of Firefox's settings I have "Use hardware acceleration when available" turned on, and under Browsing "Use smooth scrolling" also turned on, and it's butter smooth under Plasma and bspwm with compton.

I prefer the single-click, though I imagine most people would prefer double. As long as it's an option to enable single-click, I think setting the default to double would be more inline with most users, especially new users coming from other DEs and platforms.

Try moving ~/.config/vlc, ~/.local/share/vlc and ~/.cache/vlc to a temporary location (or rename them in place to something else like "vlc-backup") so VLC will start with it's defaults. See if that gets it working. The old plugin caches may have corrupted something else in you user configs and cache.

Okay, now I think I know what the problem is. Right now the current ISO was bitten by an upstream bug that doesn't set the proper locale and language. If you open a terminal and enter env you will probably see several places where a variable is set to en_US.US-ASCII or something like it. All those environment variables should say en_US.UTF-8 (if you're using US English) instead. UTF-8 supports a lot of character encodings that ASCII doesn't, and anything trying to use those encodings will fail.

It probably does need some adjusting @robgriff444, but I'm not sure if dropbox does or Plasma. I looked at the file list that nautilus-dropbox installs, most of it just icons and such. The /usr/bin/dropbox executable it installs is really a Python script. The script checks if the user has a ~/.dropbox-dist folder, and if they do, launches the dropboxd daemon it finds there. If they don't have that folder, it goes and grabs it from the website and does an install. The python modules nautilus-dropbox pulls as dependencies are for the install dialogs, GTK ones in it's case. Once the daemon is installed, all /usr/bin/dropbox does is launch the daemon, then exit. The daemon is doing the rest.

After spending a while reading about mime handling, I've come to the conclusion it's a complete train wreck. Freedesktop tries to create and set standards, but everyone seems to just ignore them and do their own. XDG, dbus, mimeapp, *.desktop, etc., etc., there's just too many ways of activating file associations, and too many places the associations are can be stored/set.

Scrolling is working fine for me, but then I'm not sure what exactly is meant by "reverse scroll".

I really don't know if it's worth all the trouble to change the default editor. I'm guessing that's the way it's set by upstream, so perhaps it should be left as is until you get more user feedback @sunnyflunk.

Hadn't checked it, but yeah, mine's blank too. Nothing special during the install, and it was a clean disk, no earlier system or settings.

Actually, that should be setting Kate's to something lower. It seems the higher number takes precedence.

I'd hope there's an easier way. :D

I've always just set it in System Settings > Applications > File Associations @sunnyflunk, but honestly have no idea how one would set it as a system default. I've never built an ISO before. I'm looking now to see how it might be done.

They are, but Kwrite exposes less options and would IMHO be less intimidating than Kate to the average user. It could be set as the default interface instead of Kate.

I don't understand this one at all @Vistaus. It appears that SDDM is killing the X server before Plasma even starts.

From a terminal run sudo journalctl -r. Normally you would just use journalctl to show your user's logs, but running as root will ensure you see all the logs. The "-r" switch tells journalctl to start from the last entries in the logs instead of the first. Depending on how much has gone on since you last tried, you may still have to scroll through a bit. You're mainly looking for errors from the DM, Plasma or Kwin, but any errors are worth noting.

I really can't say @Vistaus, I'm not familiar with SDDM. I use LightDM myself. I don't think the display manager would make a difference, but I don't know for sure. It shouldn't.
