you can give your picture screen please? ;-;
New rule: if your desktop isn't spooky then gtfo
Is that a tombstone? A church? A dark castle at the top of a decaying mountain?
I think it's a Catholic shrine? It's located in an overgrown part of our property, it was there before we moved in
Wow. That's interesting. I'd love to get some history on the property.
are those separate workspaces, or do you actually have 3 monitors where non of them are lined up? How do you not get annoyed with your mouse going from the bottom of one screen to the middle of the next ?
The center is a laptop in a docking station, so it has to be on the table so I can use the keyboard.
The other two are set up around eye level.
Its not annoying, because thats how they're arranged irl. If I move my mouse horizontally across the screens, its stays at the same level across my desk.
I use a track ball, so ive gotten pretty good at flicking the mouse back and forth between screens.
Only thing thats annoying is that sometimes the cursor will get 'caught' on the left edge of the right most screen, and it takes me a second or two to find it.
which one do you play xonotic on ?
the 144hz 1080p one
what can I say i'm a faggot
this is my favorite one
How does one change the default wm on osx? I've tried everything to get i3wm to work on this fucking laptop (pic related).>>1165
You install X11 for Mac, then you install homebrew, then you install the window manager of choice. I don't own a mac, so I can't help you too much, but I know that that's the general process. Mac has native support for X11 (you just have to enable it), so you can pretty much run whatever window manager you want.
If you could post a clean version of that wallpaper, I would appreciate it very much.
>>1244>Not effectively and efficiently using your work space>>1116
This guy knows what he is doing :^]
Nothing too fancy.
I haven't bothered to install any custom gtk themes or mess around configs too much.
I was actually thinking of reinstalling my setup from scratch to customize it better and maybe cut down on the anime themes a bit.
Didn't mean to reply, sorry. But to answer >>1124
it's a tiling window manager.
why is the screenshot tool in the shot
welp, time to start using scrot again

Because that would make WAY more sense.
>focusing on wallpaper in a desktop thread
First time online?
i'll be fair with you, anon. it really is an ostentatious wallpaper to keep especially since at times furfaggotry shit gets shoehorned, hard-pressed into everyone's faces>>1271
for most of the part these desktops are mostly wallpaper, so it kind of makes sense why would that be anon's focus
i have no idea what is going on with that WM, let alone the transparency. not a fan of moeshit either but eh…
maybe just because can't wrap my head around why people fap to furshit, but this is garbage. though i'm pleasantly surprised to see Pretend playing, at least you have good music taste to counter your shit wallpaper
can't say much other than it's cute, not a fan of pokemon either
overall comfy blend of colors with the wallpaper, i'd complain about the resolution like the true autist i am but it's pretty well put together
wallpaper looks exactly like something i'd find on the newest section of DA. though you get props for it being easy on the eyes to say the least
I've reinstalled my distro sense then.
It's still mostly the same, I only removed some of the autism.
I'm trying to move away from using gnome terminals but I'm not sure if i completly like it.
not to bully but I'm pretty sure those 2 things were rivals for years.
Eh. I just thought it was comfy.
Can I get that wallpaper?
I love that color palette, basically the exact same as my current wallpaper
fell for the "install gentoo" meme
actually it's CloverOS, aka gentoo with shit preconfigured.
here's a wallpaper i made
not exactly relevant to a desktop thread, just thought it would be of some use.
It should bretty gud. But I would still recommend installing gentoo the good old fashioned way as a learning experience.
it's terrible, i'm gonna install fedora tomorrow. Shit's unstable as fuck because the devs preconfigure things you're supposed to compile yourself and then forget to update all of it.
Also I have no clue how the fuck to fix anything, so that's also a downside.
I've lost count of how many times I've posted here
Also hey i'm in that screenshot, nice.
Look man, why don't you just head on back to reddit? It's clear that you aren't fitting in on this site.
>>1426>telling an admin to go to reddit
that's a surefire way to get your ass banned tbh. May not be justified but pretty bloody likely.
B.. But I posted as anonymous
Goddamn this is an awful site.
post your desktop right now. no cheating.
but i'll post
Infecting desktop threads all across the wired! >>1434
Mind sharing your Firefox css?
i'd fuck you
i'd fuck you so hard
update, i'm using i3 now
now with 10x more best girl

also wallpaper is OC c:
but i have no desktop
I like that wallpaper bro

I'm just watching through the whole series, start to finish. I'll make my judgement after I'm done
Is that Ghost Rider on Street Hawk's bike?
this is wangblows on my new laptop
i hope to dualboot with mint eventually
This is /t/echnology, not /spy/ware
Get that Windows outta here!
i know, i've been trying to dual boot, but mint is being a shit. idk if it's the fact i have a 7th gen intel processor or a 1050 graphics card.
That's odd. Mint works fine on my 6th generation i7 and 960M graphics card. Could just be gay. Have you tried any other distribution?
Yeah, i tried fedora as well. I got further through the boot process on it than mint, but still no luck, and Google is useless
I might try stock Ubuntu since I know mint is based on let's and IDK how new fedora's packages are.
Wew lad, anyway.
update, nomodeset in kernel parameters boots ubuntu, but in 800x600 without the option to change to 1080
that's gnome, this is i3-gaps (with xfce4-panel)
I bet it flies with gentoo.
my life is as disorganized as my desktop>>1578
are you retarded Canataloupes don't play instruments smh
can you post the wallpaper by itself?
thanks my dude, probably gonna be my new phone wall
>>1632>unity>actually installing gentoo
W E W. nice i3config though. post.
sadly, gentoo is extremely lacking in vnc libraries and anything used to gain remote access minus basic ssh, which i need, so I had to switch to Manjaro.
On the plus side, I saved my configs and made a couple changes.
>>1635>i3 confighttps://my.mixtape.moe/zuphoq>i3status confighttps://my.mixtape.moe/dutgeq.conf>conkyhttps://my.mixtape.moe/ribbsk
these work on manjaro i3 but idk how fugged they'll be otherwise. If for some reason shit doesn't work, I can post the unmodified Gentoo configs which i can confirm work on the most minimal of systems.
tfw i'm not even OP
i'm extremely proud of myself for being able to get this piece of shit functional
CDE is surprisingly stable once installed, though, especially for 90s software.
how did you install CDE on that? Are there directions somewhere you can link? I'd be interested in trying this.
I will never understand how people can use xfce, gnome is just so much better.
I'm sure I'll have to make the switch to i3 at some point though, maybe sooner rather than later as I need to do a reinstall.
>>1648>I will never understand how people can use xfce, gnome is just so much better.
Please expand on this statement.
IDK what he means by that either. Your setup looks nice and clean. Moved on from Mint I see :^)
It's just a lot more intuitive, I think a good comparison is using page down rather than the scroll bar.
Do you have any examples? I'm assuming your comparison was a metaphor, since page down/up is how you also navigate xfce.
GNOME is the shittiest DE ever.>no minimize/maximize by default>have to install an extra tool just to get back that most basic feature>have to install browser extension just to get things that give back basic functionality (like a menu that doesn't suck)>it all breaks next time GNOME updates>GUI package manager that doesn't find half the shit that just running the terminal command does>now featuring more bloat than fucking KDE>no right-click > new file in the file manager>GNOME apps are non-conforming, so if you run i.e. gedit in a tiling wm it will still have the GIANT ugly title bar>all this while relying on systemdick
GNOME is trash.
I haven't used GNOME in a long time, and didn't know it had gotten that bad. I check on screenshots every one in a while, and it looks like it's aimed at being a touch-screen replacement.
You have an android phone and google linux frequently, i assume, because this was recommended to me via jewgle this morning. Thanks, though, I never bothered to click it.
You got the wrong guy mate. It's an article posted yesterday to linux.com
That's how I found it.
>>1657>he uses google and likes GNOME
unity, you never cease to amaze me.
If you buy into gnomes workflow you're fine. The problem is if you want to break away from what they want you too do. Then things get hairy.
I personally love the way there desktops work, and the way they handle there activity view is (in my opinion) an improvement over macOS's expose.
But I'm not a typical user. I live in a terminal and my IDE (intellij).
Is lxqt more stable now? Last I tried it, it felt like it was put together with a bit of duct tape. it was also just as resource intensive as xfce, which kind of defeats the purpose.
I'm assuming you are using "resource intensive" very loosely here
yes. What I mean is, LXDE was always more lightweight than XFCE, which made up for its comparative lack of features. LXQT used the same amount of resources as XFCE, which doesn't really give it much of a place. At least, that was the case when I tried it. It may have changed.
LXQT is for people who want a qt version of XFCE. It's a bit more configurable than LXDE and some people (somehow) prefer qt over gtk
also reminder that the gnu is the best animal.
>>1669>some people (somehow) prefer qt over gtk
At this point in development, I actually prefer QT over GTK because GTK is slowly becoming synonymous with the GNOME project. It's less becoming a wildly customize-able and universal toolkit and more becoming a toolkit for GNOME to use that also happens to work in other DEs, and it's only going to get worse. QT has it's flaws, but at least it's goal is still to be a universal toolkit rather than just being for KDE or something.
I almost strictly relate QT to KDE.
I actually agree with this. I think that GTK is becoming more and more of a "GNOME" thing, and that's not a very good thing, considering how most of us would rate GNOME (which is to say, a dumpster fire/10). I welcome projects like LXQT because of it. QT has its problems, but at least it isn't brought to you by the same people who thought that getting rid of minimize and maximize buttons was a good idea.
Also I'll add that there's some really good QT applications that make more qt based desktops appealing. kdenlive and clementine for starters. Qbittorrent is great. Pcmanfm has a qt port now, and Falkon looks like it might develop into a decent browser, if it gets support for a umatrix-like addon. Also konversation makes for a surprisingly /comfy/ irc experience.
Don't really feel like posting my desktop but i have a question. Why would anyone have a desktop background? Seems like it would only be distracting. I haven't used one in 2 years and i still struggle to see a point.
Mine rotates between space, natural environments, and sexy ladies.
I don't see it 90% of the time because I have windows covering most of the desktop at any given time. The only time I really see the background images is when I first sit down, and when I close all the windows for the night.
Though when I am writing code, or managing networks, I see it a lot more. If you do a lot of stuff through a terminal or command line, a background is nice decoration.
Because i like looking at pretty things.
Why does your house have paint?
>>1683>Windows>Cortana enabled>Chrome>Discord>Skype>uTorrent>Google Docs and Sheets
Is this bait?
Looks like a normie desktop. Bet that anon gets laid.
That said anon i would recommend making a folder and putting all the shortcuts you never use in there, like the intel and 7 zip and other stuff.
It's gotta be. There's no way someone is so oblivious they use all of the worst options.
Is it still a pain in the ass to set-up openbox? Do you still have to create a launcher for every program you install?
Technically yes, but there's a couple of very easy ways to work around that. The first is to just use a keyboard launcher like dmenu. I use rofi personally, invoked with Super+Space, and have it configured to be able to launch programs and switch to open windows. The other option, which I've also done, is to use a little program called menumaker that will automatically configure your menu for you. It's not in a lot of repos, but it's very easy to find and install. I'd recommend doing both, as I did, just for the sake of convenience.
As far as general config stuff, It's not the easiest to setup (I actually think fluxbox is a bit more simple iirc), but it's not bad. Plus there's utilities like obconf and obmenu that make things easier. And remember that openbox uses a seperate autostart file rather than placing it at the bottom of the config or something.
This is my new friend I've got for university.
He's quite comfy.
That's great, but can it run Microsoft Office or Photoshop?
Uni is going to require them.
Simply untrue. I've never been asked to open Photoshop, that definitely depends on major. As far as Microsoft Office goes, I've had to write a lot of papers and make some presentations and such. There was nothing LibreOffice could not handle being thrown at it. There's also LaTeX, which is what I use to write all of my more formal papers and looks a lot BETTER than anything Microsoft Office can put out.
Unless you're going to your university for graphic design, you're not going to need Photoshop, and I cannot remember an instance where I couldn't use LibreOffice or Google Docs for the entirety of my uni life.>>1772
LaTeX is life
If he was going to uni for gd or anything with cad he wouldnt have gotten a chromebook
The most important thing you need for college is google docs and slides anyway. Most big projects are team projects.
No they aren't? Why would polisci require photoshop?
Also Libreoffice is 100% word compatible.
