Three monitors

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.

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 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).

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

 No.1670

>>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.

 No.1671

>>1670

I almost strictly relate QT to KDE.

 No.1672

>>1670
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.

 No.1673

>>1672
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.

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.

>>1695

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?

 No.1697

>>1696
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.
