There is still no good Mastodon software for Linux?

@boilingsteam @kensanata Ok. so I've tested some of these very quickly. The only one I can get to work on my Linux MX is tootle and it is kind of simple and not really a satisfactory replacement for just using Mastodon in the browser.

Yes, it has been my preferred distro the last six months I think.

@gunnar Awesome! I was wanting to try it but the live USB had my mouse freeze completely. No input worked but the keyboard. I am set to blame the hardware (Lenovo Yoga of some kind - not the more linux friendly lappys). I have better Lenovo machines that I could try it on.

This was what was selling me on it esp in light of the thread above with electron apps for communication:

I really miss arbitrary tabbed windows!!!

Ah! I don't run it with fluxbox, but I've run it with several old laptops from Asus to Dell. I've been searching for the best distro for my old(ish) laptops and I found that MX always worked perfectly after install.

@gunnar I really enjoy XFCE as my default window manager but pined for Fluxbox. If MX could give me the best of both worlds that would be nice.

You have inspired me to give it another go on a more linux friendly thinkpad. I have been really unhappy with the changes Xubuntu made with their screenlocker/power management... very flaky! I would also like to get closer to the mother deb source (Debian).

Btw they have an EXTREMELY welcoming and friendly community as well. At least that's my experience.

@gunnar Yeah, I recall Mepis from a long time ago and was happy with that...
