Installed Manjaro KDE for I cannot figure out a way to install and enable power-profiles-daemon in Solus OS. Removed Vivaldi, and now I am not using any chromium-based browsers for I do not want to support Google's monopoly.

Installed Librewolf Flatpak.

It seems that power-profiles-daemon is in Solus repositories, but I missed it.

Now back to Solus Mate for it provides the best out-of-the-box experience. It is a rolling-release, but very stable. I do not have any major issue except for the screen tearing issue which I have been able to fix using a simple .conf file. I should mention that Solus is the only distro I've tried recently in which hibernation does work without any issues at least on my laptop.
