Re: Poettering's Law*

I just loaded Mate on FBSD 11 along with a bunch of other stuff. no systemd here... though 'atril' gave me a ration of crap when I tried to run it from a different user, the way I always do - you know, log into a mate shell, "su - whateveruser", then "setenv DISPLAY localhost:0.0" (already ran xhost +localhost), then you can use "that user" with whatever GUI stuff you want... except Atril choked on it for some reason related to dbus. But it works fine when run as the logged in user. I blame SYSTEMD DEPENDENCIES in the application! [I suspect that workarounds are patched into the various applications that *FEEL* they need systemd]
