I've already compiled Megasync 3.5 and was thinking about creating a thread to post instructions to help others in becoming self-reliant besides Devil's repo has outdated version of Megasync (ver 3.1).

Thanks.

You could also notify Devil505 that his version is outdated since obviously he doesn't monitor new releases.

"toxic community "

Curious what specific social outlets you found toxic.

Seems like a generalization.

Tks!

I changed it to the word toxic as the OP used a little less family friendly word. :)

generalization of toxic
Nothing better than trying :)
With that said, it is now a past tense for me and no need to spend time living in past. I learned a lot from Arch but yes, it is time to move.

Thanks for curiosity.

I always found the Arch community helpful, but slow in response times; the greatest community I ever experienced was the old Ubuntu Forums... [bias]we were awesome[/bias]. :-)

I've bounced from Ubuntu (Warty was my first) to Fedora, back to Ubuntu, to openSUSE, to Debian, back (again) to Ubuntu, through Mint, Arch, Manjaro, etc. I stumbled across Solus and really liked the philosophy behind it and it's new approach to Linux.

I, too, acknowledge the mass of easily available-to-install software is lacking; however, it's refreshing to try out a new spin on Linux!
