desktop icons auto arrange setting

Hello,

It’s a repost; my last post got deleted for being too short, lol. Is there a way to set the ‘desktop icons auto arrange’ off? I tried several online solutions with no results. I can move the icons to any place on my Desktop, but when i copy another file to the desktop all the files gets re-arranged to the left-side. It’s frustrating haha.

I’m using the latest PopOS.

Greetings.

Edex-ui wont install

Long story short, I saw edex-ui in a youtube video and wanted to try it out, as it seemed cool. However whenever I try to install edex-ui or edex-ui-git (tried building from either pamac-cli or pamac-gtk) I get the following error:

Why should I use Linux?

So I’m a long-time MacOS user. It fits all my needs, but I’m getting “bored” with it. There is a lack of customization.
So I was looking into Linux systems, but should I really switch? I don’t use my computer for programming or that stuff (except a little bit of Matlab and Mathematica, but that’s not really programming of course).

What are the pro’s & con’s for using Linux? And what are you guys recommendations? I really like the aesthetics of Pop!_OS.

Thanks in advance 🙂
