General thread for showing off and rating desktops.Pic related is my desktop
>>2133262Just to save this thread, i post this.PD: Do you know the artist who made all this Lain images?
>>2133312Not OP, but i believe it's by Fauux01
>>2133314TrueThis is his website: https://fauux.neocities.org/Thanks a lot
>>2133262never seen this distro before. what is it?
>>2133506I made it myself, including the icons at the top>>2133450Windows 10 lmao
>>2133514Sick. Do the icons function? If so I gotta understand how you riced win10 for this, assuming you did something more than just make icons and make them shortcuts. Also I think the other anon was setting you up for to making of joke.Say you in the phone ricing thread too, I really like your design and the slow animations and the colors and everything.
>>2133717OP here. I see what you're going for, but all those shortcuts look kind of gross desu. Part of the reason my desktop looks so damn clean is because the lack of shortcut arrows allow the custom icons to blend in w/ the background. I used Winaero Tweaker to get rid of those nasty arrows. Things would also be nicer if you removed "- Shortcut" from all of the icons.>>2133583Pic related, the icons are just various folders or shortcuts that I made custom icons for. winaero to remove the shortcut arrows plus renaming them to various amounts of spaces (alt+255, not spacebar) allows them to blend nicely to the background. Windows 10 is surprisingly flexible if you know the workarounds and tools (Winaero, rainmeter, Wallpaper engine etc)>>2133506I made the background, and all the icons myself. I did kinda steal the pink logo in the center of the wallpaper from Fauux though (couldn't be bothered to recreate it, since it already exists)
Here's mine. Very simplistic, raimeter made it so that I can have a visual representation of music playing over my selected audio device. Cheers
>>2133745>Windows 7Based as fuck, but how do you access like, anything, other than steam, discord and music? And why not hide your rubbish bin at this point?
>>2133746>>2133746I have everything I need in the search bar/ start menu. I'm really bad at orginization - I either have too many icons (Literally the screen full, OP can vouch) or nothing at all. so I have to keep it as nothing, or everything. that's adhd for you i suppose!The rubbish bin point is fair, though. I wonder why I've hid everything else, and never hid my recycling bin..Good point.
>>2133262What do those icons do?
>>2133749Microphone - DiscordChess piece - GamesPlanet - BrowserPolaroid - ImagesSpeaker - Music and animeFolder - ApplicationsFloppy - Anything that doesn't fit in the othersCoffin - Rubbish bin
>>2133744> i see what you're going forwhat the fuck is that lolI have friends who just leave shortcuts to whatever they care about splattered Ll over the desktop and it drives me fuckin batty, I can't stand it> win10 ricing detailsthanks eye anon, i never thought icons on my desktop could be nice until now>>2133746>how do you access like, anything, other than [pinned apps]> tap Win-key> type in the first few letters of whatever you want> tap Enterviola. i got sick of trying to make global keyboard shortcuts for everything i used, saw this shit in some forum, and felt like a fucking retard.
Too lazy to rice anything so I just dump all my shit on folders.
>>2134106such a faggot
>>2134106I'm loving that aesthetic man>>2134123Adorable
>>2134097i rate it "childlike and autistic but at least you play melee">>2134106Sick, real comfy & nostalgiac. Also I didn't know dropbox and discord ran on Linux (unless you're using wine or something)

>>2135968Thank you. It's difficult to find non-meme remixes of Nadeko themes.
>>2134671cute suika, sauce?
I'm not sure if this is the appropriate thread, but I've been trying Vivaldi for a bit and holy shit the font rendering is horrible - is there any fix? The font in Chrome is awful too which is why I've always used Firefox, but Firefox spikes up to as much as 8GB ram usage after the past few updates, so I need to switch to something else.Picture unrelated.
>>2133450a bit too generic.>>2134123I always love your desktops.>>2134192Inspiring.>>2135525The icons on the left don't suit the style of your desktop, in my opinion. Everything else is pretty good.As for my desktop, the next step is to make the window corners rounded.
>>2134671Cute music player, reminds me of when I used to use winamp in like 2001.
>>2136104I tried briefly using vivaldi and it was just a bit ehh, although it seems to have potential. Still on ff now though.
>>2133315Is that from Angel's Egg?
>>2137047Aight, show us YOURS then?
>>2137057I've already posted mine.
anybody in here using Awesome WM? What's your setup look like? I'm about to fresh install after fucking my system, so now's a good chance to get a good theme going.
Pay no attention to my overly generic wireless SSID.
Tfw very basic >>21371688/10 Very neato but I don't like the colour of the anime eyes
>>2137185It is a bit annoying, I would like them to be monochrome or at least have the color be muted. It's the best monochrome paper I have though.
Switching fully to arch soon
Sry, I'm a basic bitch. I'll prolly do more with it later.
>>2137221Why you need arch?, learn something useful like tensorflow in python or some shit like that
Something boring just to keep the thread going
Eh, I'm trash and never looked into windows ricing. Bullying and tips appreciated.
>>2138181https://rizonrice.github.io/resourcesThis should get you started at least.
>>2138183Thank you. I really do appreciate it.
>>2138172What browser is that? Looking great!
>>2138226Cheers! It's just FF, an old as fuck version I should really update
need to edit the WP to be the same color as the reactive wallpaper bars, but CBAit slowly rotates, about 1 full rotation every 180 seconds or so>>2133745I like WPE for visualizations personally
>>2133262What's a computer?
>>2138315Wait how did you do this? What's your setup?
>>2138338I am using a Samsung Galaxy S2(i9100) running postmarketOS(alpine linux for android phones). Pic related.
>>2138315where did you get that background?
>>2138456+1 for radwimps:^)
stole the oyasumi pun pun bg from someone, its cute. srry for OS and setup
just on an old laptop at the librarydon't use this one much so fuck ricing
>>2138346your a beast!!
>>2136110What font is that? Very fun quirky look. I always liked making polybar look like that, but it takes up too much screen space for me (especially when using fullscreen apps) so I always make it go back to a normal bar.

>>2136185how you hide the scrollbar?
i dont know how to do fancy terminal stuff or mod windows at all ;-;
>>2134813CRINGE AND REDDIT. FUCKING GAS???
>>2138264Ah another Lain fan i seeI need some glitchy GIFs of Lain for my wallpaper
>>2138447hurts my eyes, but in a good way>>2139607looks great, i love the wallpaper and icons>>2139888add something to your desktop, a shortcut, a random pic, anything. it's barren>>2140126i really like the transparent taskbar, nice and minimal
>>2140126Invisible taskbar with better icons with a consistent style is my dream. Somewhat hypocritical that I say while having a Rangarok Pouring as my start button that jiggles and bounces when you move your mouse over it.
>>2139957>>2140126what are those media players?
>>2140824sick. nice uptime anono. what shell is that?
>>2135532This made me unironically lol
>>2140824>>2140843I'm curious, too. Just got back into ricing windows today. Been using bbzero cuz it's easy to switch back to explorer if I run into compatibility problems with games.
How did I do, guys?
>>2141540Nice, but enable light theme in Windows, so the taskbar icons will be dark.
Ah, so many Winblows faggots out there... Please anons, stop playing games, and move to Linux (or BSD if you prefer weak hardware support). Except gaming, Linux is better in every aspect over Winblows, and this is not opinionated...Cheers, Tsu...
PS: Respect to those DWM and BSPWM users out there, I used DWM alongside DMenu for some time, but patching was pain for me and my weak patience...
PPS: Ricing Windows anon said...? - LMAO
>>2141628How do I do that?
>>2141636Ah, it's simple, follow steps below:1) Backup your anime and manga on external HD, DVDs or cloud2) Go to distrowatch.com and find Linux distro of your liking, you have "beginner" category in search options3) Burn image on DVD or USB, insert it in PC, reboot (restart) and follow installation steps4) Play around with appeareance options and find what you like the most...My advice is to try out KDE Neon or KaOS...
>>2140843>>2141357just plain explorer, you can see it in the fetch
>>2136016What image viewer do you use?
>>2141636>My advice is to try out KDE Neon or KaOS...KDE Is extremely easy to tweak the way you want, good beginner distros are ubuntu and KDE Neon, ubuntu is most recommended though, theres lots of guides online that can help as well.
>>2137185based ror2 poster
>>2137168source of the wallpaper artist?
>>2141744icon suggests it's honeyview
Please be gentle.
>>2142215You're not making it easy
>>2133262is there anyway to use wallpaper engine and a shell replacement that replaces explorer.exe such as blackbox?
>>2135429Nice, looks like an Arabic place but sci fi
>>2133450Luke Smith is the best anime girl out there, guys
>>2133717I like how they took the time to make the icons but not clean up the fucking filenames.
>>2139016Let's play ratz
Rate meh not really anime related but vidya related I supposed.
>>2134138>>2135654Looks like the Window Maker window manager with a bunch of custom tooling. Could possibly be another Window manager, but NEXTstep-like docks on the right are built into Window Maker.
How do you guys get standalone terminals with the distro logo next to stats like in:>>2142215>>2139607>>2138503Also, has anyone had success compiling liri for arch? It's so beautiful but installing it is a massive pain
Alright lay it on me
i finally got my third monitor back so i can post again! it's only been like what a year? excuse the weird monitor sizes>>2143834>>2138562reminds me of my first desktop rice when i got into linux>>2141540windows desktops sure have gotten fancy
>>2143852and then i realize i forgot to censor my name on the terminal window FUCK
>>2143881don't dox me bro
>>2133717The OSX-styled ones mixed in with the windows ones is awful, why would you do this?I used to have custom icons like that before I abandoned Windows entirely. They can look nice if done well, but I don't think they belong on the desktop like that.
>>2138346Can you make phone calls with it?
i3 with transparencies
I'm still getting back into Unix shit so don't be too harsh. Any legitimate pointers?
>>2144331Share your wallpaper, I'll trade you for another Ritsu/Mio/Mugi pape
>>2144332If you ever really learned it, you wouldn't have forgotten to the point where you're posting a fully-vanilla DE.
>>2144377Great wallpaper, thanks
>>2144415not op but i found it, also, learn to use iqdb
I'm back again, trying to flatten my desktop into nothingness
>>2144378Yeah, you right. Working on it.
>>2144533Same guy again, but this time with an actual pointer: Just keep trying stuff, and expect to make mistakes and break things for a while. Don't just revert things when something breaks, try to understand why, and eventually you'll be able to solve most any problem you run into on your own.
It's my first time posting, so I'd appreciate any constructive pointers.
>>2144658Also if anyone has any suggestions for icons that would go well with this setup, let me know.
>>2144658rainmeter stuff has a really thin font, kinda makes it hard to see against the gray wallpapermaking the taskbar transparent and moving it on top would look nice so the icons and stuff dont blend in, but you'll probably have to move the rainmeter stuff a bit downas for icons, im not really sure whats out there for windows anymore. maybe numix? its generic but its different from stock
Changed my vertical monitor wallpaper not long ago.
>>2144886shit renderhttps://danbooru.donmai.us/posts?tags=transparent_backgroundtry something in here

>>2133262I put everything in one folder so it doesn't clutter my desktop.
>>2145220I think it looks fine, nice colors>>2145236win+e you turd
Looking to start using Linux so I can have desktops like these, but don't know where to start. Anyone mind pointing me where?
>>2141632>no photoshopI would love to use linux but PS is mandatory for me
>>2145220No, if you're faking it you're doing a pretty good job.
>>2145238>Looking to start using Linux so I can have desktops like theseLike having a nice wallpaper and a useless window terminal showing off your pc specs?You can have this in windows, mate.
>>2145272Downloaded Ubuntu and I prefer the looks of it over Windows. The way Windows toolbar intrudes annoys me now.
>>2145220Can you share de wp?
>>2141632Seriously what's the obsession of linuxfags for having a useless window showing the specifications of their pc? that shit cover your entire desktop completely ruining your wallpaper. Are they too retarded to remember what pc they have so uses that window as a reminder or something?
arch is really comfy
>>2145289Seriously what's with the obsession of windowfags for install speccy? Are they too much of fucking retards to remember what hardware they have? The stupid little icon sits on the desktop completely ruining the wallpaper.
>>2139050The font is Adigiana Toybox. And my bar isn't Polybar btw, it's tint2.
>>2145291>113 days uptime
>>2145291install gentoo, systemd using cuck

>>2140824any know sauce to this wallpaper?
>>2134106I don't like the old look, but I appreciate your effort.>>2134123Your desktops always represent peak performance.>>2134192Simple, inspiring and simply soothing. Great job.
Can someone recommend any good system fonts that look comfy and pleasing and aren't as boring as Segoe UI?
>>2145937xos4-terminusHaven't touched anything else in years.
>>2145947Thanks for this but it doesn't seem to exist as a TTF for Windows or I might suck a googling.
>>2145937You probably want to look for a sans serif font. I recommend the following ones:MontserratComfortaaProxima NovaUbuntu RegularProduct Sans
>>2146162Thanks, will check these out.
I was playing with Arch Recently.
I wanted a dark background wallpaper of my waifu. I saw this one but it has the Re:zero logo, so I removed it.
>>2145236>>2134106based boogiepop posters
>>2145956You want to look for just terminus. You'll manage to find one easily. On Linux, the xfonts tend to have the foundry name in front of the actual font name so you get things like xos4-terminus, artwiz-lemon, misc-fixed, etc.
>>2146452That makes more sense, I found it now, thank you anon.
Trying Product Sans now and it looks decent, Google did something right here. Is there a version without emotes though? Seeing (C emote instead of (C:) isn't pretty.
Had to do something besides looking at my screen while I compiled a bunch of stuff.
>>2146654So THAT's why Gentoo users always have a new rice to post
>>2143667it's fvwm, clearly
>>2146665How do you have an animated background?
>>2146665I can feel the battery drain from here anon
>>2136110Ciao amico italiano
windows is hard, but at least i have my pictures of mista
>>2147450Vertical bars are stupid, having two of them is even worse.. Other than that it looks fine to me.Bra jobbat.
>>2147452tack!i don't like having the taskbars on the top/bottom, or gone completely. i just prefer the sides or in the middle of both screens
>>2147450What's icon pack for the taskbar?
>>2147450Nice gondola wallpaper, can you share? Also, what window theme is that? And what program is that you use to read manga?
>>2143852that's pretty cute
Vanilla Cringedows 10, too lazy to rice
how do i remove the title bar across the top of honeyview?
>>2148603Why even post?
Never tried making a nice-looking desktop before, but this thread inspired me
Working on it. I have all the umineko assets saved but I still dont know how I'm gonna turn any of it into a proper rice
>>2148705How do you make the taskbar the same color as the desktop? I know that this sounds stupid, but mytaskbar just doesn't pick the color of the desktop which I write.
>>2148839Making the taskbar and general color transparent, that way it is he same color as your wallpaper
>>2149175Megaman Battle Network / Rockman.exe, you are a person of culture

>>2149273Same, I look forward to the Zero Collection!

I don't think that I want to go through the whole pain to customize the taskbar as well. I'm satisfied with what I have now.>>2134788>>2134813>>2137185>>2139957more effort, maybe?>>2135525pretty standard. The taskbar should be longer imo.>>2136016nice although I don't really like docks>>2137168I like what you're trying to do, but the taskbar doesn't really suit the wallpaper>>2138172good one, the bar is a little too thin though>>2138562interesting taskbar, the rest is pretty standard>>2139607non male zio>>2140706very interesting. What OS is this?>>2141540the bar destroys the look, but the way you've arranged things there is good>>2141632honestly I'm just waiting for Windows 10 to crash and definitely switch to Pop_OS. I hope I won't need games anymore by then. I'm having fun with Rainmeter in the meanwhile.>>2143627too wide>>2143852very cute, but the font has just given me diabetes. I suggest giving a look into San Francisco font or Akkurat. They may fit your theme.>>2144529setting the terminal background at the same colour as the wallpaper might be a good idea, but leaving the window decorations on makes everything look terrible.>>2144658That doesn't look to bad, personally I would increase the left padding of the widgets, the letters look like they're too close to the edge of the screen imo. Btw may I ask you how you used the power font icon? I don't know how to use it in rainmeter .ini>>2145220I find it ok. I would remove the scrollbar in the terminal and set a different colour for the taskbar background.>>2145291cute bar. Is that Polybar?>>2145644pretty good although I would rearrange the items on the top right in the taskbar>>2146654good job!>>2147450it would look much better with no clock in the vertical taskbar
