GNU/Linux Desktops: 1Q 2020

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the GNU/Linux Desktops Thread!

 

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).

Still using Fluxbox.  Still hate desktop icons.
Window decorations are MacOS inspired, using gimp to create a theme in flux format.
This old box has been around for many years, and is still running like a beast (hence the hostname)

Network tray applet is nm-applet.

Volume tray applet is pnmixer.


Not sure I attached the screenshot properly to get a full resolution view, but I have kept the preview within the guidelines. ;)

Like Mark, I have had this Xubuntu desktop for many years. Had Debian before that but didn't like how some packages worked with it.

XFCE is my favorite "larger-sized" DE.  My kid logon for my computer defaulted to XFCE, and before I knew of a flux compatible network manager, I booted into XFCE to make network settings.  I have drifted away from all the terminal stuff I used to do.

I use XFCE on my ArcoLinux (ArchLinux fork) install, too. Used to like MATE, but I've had so many issues with it.

 

I was always with Debian/Ubuntu/Mint, but needed a change..
