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)
>>2133314very underrated film, this made me smile

Surprised to see so many win10 posters. Fresh install, no clue how2win10. I'll post my laptop in a bit.>>21332628/10Dig the style.>>2133312>>2133314>>2133315>>2133406Nice papes?>>213345010/10 trolltop.>>2133717what the fuck am I looking at?/10>>21337456/10Nice look but lacks effort.

>>2135532Are you retarded?
>>2133262Nice one OP, it's gorgeous.
I have a dual screen but the other one's just blank cause I always have shit over there ¯\_(ツ)_/¯>>2134671based taskbar, how'd you do that

>>2134106based boogiepop poster>>2134038nice sauce paper
>>2135804Nice slice the snake anon
>>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.
>>2133450Based Luke Smith>>2133717I have to watch Ghost in the Shell>>2134106Another Windows 95 desktop, again?>>2134192Minimal, clean and everything powered by Openbox, I like It!>>2135525Cool, I like the the windows decorations!>>2138609>Windows ServerAlright your turn now, rate me!
>>2133450baka default LARBS...at least customise it a bit, cmon
>>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
