Lumina has fallen into a typical hobby project trap: lack of focus. Only fun things are getting done, such as starting new utilities or chasing new shiny things with rewrites. There is no effort spent on code quality, testing, bug fixes, polishing UX or documentation. It's going to be abandoned once there is enough technical debt. It actually already looks half way there considering that it currently receives very few commits.Why?
There is barely any FreeBSD specific code in Lumina. TrueOS / PC-BSD config utilities predate it.Since TrueOS has been abandoned they probably start to adapt it to the Linux ecosystem (with their Project Trident distro).
Okay, thanks! Then I don't waste my time on it.I built it form x11/lumina yesterday and honestly it was disappointing. Better stay with lightweight alternative like xcfe4 for instance, it works quite well on FreeBSD. Since TrueOS has been abandoned they probably start to adapt it to the Linux ecosystem (with their Project Trident distro). Maybe it was better before that, but for now it just something between a simple window manager like icewm and a Desktop Environment. And honestly, to get something like that I really prefer staying on icewm or xfce4, these are "finished product" and well known. As for the stability part of lumina, I cannot talk I have not tested long enough.
