GNU / Linux Desktops: 3Q 2019

 

GNU/ Linux Desktop Thread is split into 4 threads over the course of a year to reduce clutter.
1Q - January through March.
2Q - April through June.
3Q - July through September.
4Q - October through December.

 

Posting Guidelines

- Embedded images should be smaller than or equal to 1440x900 (preferably 1024x768).
- The file size for image previews should be no larger than 750 KB.
- Images linked externally should be no larger than 3 MB.

- If you plan to img-embed your desktop, please try to keep it under 100k (It's recommended that you link it, externally).
- Stay within the board rules, no matter how yummy you may believe it to be.
- If you are going to quote, there isn't a need to quote an img-embeded picture - Just don't do it. Please just reference the post by page number/page link/etc.
- The desktops thread is not to be used as a means to post images of a pornographic or otherwise provocative nature. We do not support a babes forum and neither will we in an unofficial capacity. Please help to keep the thread relevant and safe to browse for everyone.
- The moderators of this forum reserve the right to edit or remove your posts as necessary so they may comply with our Community Rules and so that this thread remains on topic.

- In the interests of keeping the thread on topic it is strongly urged that you format your posts in the following order:

Themes: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).
Wallpaper: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).
Icons: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).
Programs: Name/where you got it (with link would be nice).

Not really. All you need is a MacOS QT theme for the title bars (can download and install directly from OS with the theme settings), install latte dock, and hide or remove the plasma application launcher and bar. Would take about 20 minutes if you were causally doing it. 

Gives a nice clean look.

Correct. Nowhere did I say it was simple. Refer back to that thread. I was referring to you with it taking 20 minutes because I thought you were familiar with GNU/Linux. My bad.

I am fluent in Linux, but I never used KDE. I never really liked it. I'm more of a XFCE/MATE guy...

Thanks lol. I'm running glava, that's the sound visualizer you see at the bottom. I had my config messed up, that's why it isn't on the whole screen. It's really cool, https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/11/embed-audio-visualizer-on-your-linux.html

 

 

KDE is can be pretty bloated, but I need something that I could adjust to everyday. I'm going to check out some of the others, but just wanted something that I could use quick. I've used Linux off and on for the last 20 years it seems. I've tried switching full time, but ended up going back to windows. This time, I'm more serious about it since gaming has come a long way. I actually don't have a Windows partition/drive anymore. I've been Windows free for over a week and haven't looked back.

Recently moved away from Mint, and went with ArcoLinux, based off Arch. Has a simple installer, too. :)
