I’ve been running Arch for maybe 2-3 months now and I’ve been very happy with it. Only thing has been that it seems to be running slightly warm and as such also the battery life isn’t quite as good as I’d hoped.
Now that Ubuntu 19.10 came out, I thought I’d take a look at it as it’s been quite a while since I’ve run it (used to use Manjaro before Arch). And my mind is blown on how good of a battery life I’m getting on it. And the laptop seems to keep the temperatures down much better also.
Only thing is… I miss Arch… Or actually I miss the software in Arch as it’s much more up-to-date and of course there’s AUR…
So I’m a bit torn right now, I really really love using Ubuntu (with Regolith desktop), but the software just isn’t up to snuff. But then again I really love the rolling aspects of Arch, but the battery life isn’t so good.
So the question is… What magic has Canonical done in Ubuntu to get the battery life this good and is it something I can replicate in Arch?
