You only have to add:

It does not work in small window managers.
In a case of Openbox, add the variety command to the Openbox startup script:
$HOME/.config/openbox/autostart.shsuch as:

I couldn't agree more.  I like to distro hop and break distros to see how they hold up, sparkylinux not only
survived my tests but   surpassed any and all expectations I've had of any distro I've tried.

Just wantedto say hi and that I found sparkylinux by accident and I'm very glad I did.  I've been distro hopping for over a year.  I have 167gb's of iso's I've already used on my hard drive, not to mention alot of usbs with multiple iso's on them with ventoy. If that says anything. Sparkylinux has been the top distribution I've used. I even made it my daily driver in my main machine. I appreciate all your hard work.  Thanks for all you do for us users.

I'm finding in many ways Sparky is easier to use than Windows 10. I was using Win10 primarily to run virtual machines to test various Linux(es) out. Now Sparky is on my machines instead instead of Windows doing the same thing and more.

I have a minimal-spec budget laptop (Linux's wifi support on this laptop is spotty). XFCE runs so well that with just under 7gig of available ram I can run the super-bloated Garuda Gnome "Xen" kernel Archlinux installation in virtualization on top of XFCE with a browser open, giving the majority of my RAM and hard disk to the temporary Arch installation. True, it barely runs the bloated Garuda on the 4gig of RAM I can give it, but Garuda is fancy I guess.

It seems that all the Arch Linuxes I've recently tested out in virtualization on Sparky bare metal are intentionally holding back the Cataclysm version to 0.F.3-2 instead of the newest version 0.F.3-5 (which seems to be the current version that Sparky is on). However, this is probably best choice for CDDA developers as the game still works 100% in the terminal curses mode. This obviously isn't the optimal way to learn how to play CDDA as the game is sort of a steep learning curve even in the Tiles SDL gaming mode.

If you haven't tried this game out and want to learn how to play it while using Sparky Rolling, I'd suggest installing the SnapD version (Cataclysm Flatpak doesn't exist yet), I think it has the beta version of Ultica tiles and the older CDDA inventory system, but you can still have a much easier time learning the game using tiles. I'm still getting used to understanding the terminal/cli version of CDDA myself. The tiles version is beautiful and the Cli version is humorously punishing.

This is good incentive to learn the game for terminal play.
