old one >>2234000
I love cinnamon. Simplicity is best.
>>2244780Yes, Cinnamon is probably the best DE for Linux. If you love it so much, I strongly suggest moving to Mint in the future: Arch is cool, but Mint is super stable and literally lever breaks.
>>2244792Why give up on the best package manager and aur? Arch is stable if you know how to use and not be retard.
>>2244738post pape please
>>2244792>>2244794Yea I love pacman too much. The repos are just way better than whatever apt has. I couldn't figure out apt as easily as pacman.
rn I'm not at home so you find me using this classic enviroment
>>2244796I seem to have lost the full pic I cropped it from but you can find it on Danbooru if you need it
>>2244792Mint feels like what Ubuntu used to be. Ubuntu had nicer branding, though.>>2244794>>2244798I've had Arch break even when I knew what I was doing. A few times an nvidia driver update would break shit, then a couple times I had my package database get corrupted for some unknown reason. At the same time I had months go by on Arch with zero problems at all, so I can see why people think Arch doesn't break anymore, but I see enough people still having it break on them that I can't just blame the users not knowing what they're doing all the time.Stable distros just feel more polished in general. Plus Arch is kind of needy where it is more prone to breakage if you don't update it super often. If I really needed rolling release I'd rather use Gentoo and just put up with the compiling, it's far more reliable than Arch even if you forget to/can't update it for a while.I prefer to have a stable base and then backport/compile/flatpak as a last resort what I need on top of that. AUR isn't really important to me at all, and in general if I'm using software from outside of my distro's official repos then I'd rather keep it local and stuff it in a firejail than install it like AUR does.
>>2244833really nice. wallpaper please
>>2244792Mint is based on Ubuntu LTS, which updates only every two years and some packages in Mint are like three years old. Other distros like Fedora or openSUSE Leap have much shorter release cycles with only marginal stability losses.
>>2244738What themes did you use?
>>2244855It's all just pretty basic fvwm theming, I did it myself. It's a bit of a pain but if you read the docs (wiki and manpages) it's not too difficult even for a non-programmer like me. But if you wanted a similar retro look without dumping time into reading manpages I wholeheartedly recommend Icewm, it justwerks and is tied with fvwm for my favorite.Oh and for the icons in the taskbar (which is also made in fvwm), I just nabbed them from the 16x16 folder of the SE98 icon set.
>>2244857In the last thread I did a NeXTSTEP rice. >>2242578But For a future project I'd try something like yours. That will still look 90s UNIX af.
>>2244857(update on >>2244858)Here is a more current version of my NeXTSTEP rice. >>2242866
>>2244858>>2244859Nice rices. Though I've personally had so many bugs with KDE I don't really use it anymore.FYI, if you like dockapps like I do, then aside from fvwm, both openbox and icewm support them as well. In openbox the dock background is theme'd through the OSD section of your openbox theme (don't think there was anywhere on the wiki that documented that specifically so I had to find out by trial and error) so you can give your dock some pretty slick backgrounds. In icewm I don't think you get as much control over how the dock looks, unless I missed something.If you didn't know about nscde, there's that as well if you want a retro UNIX look. It's built on fvwm iirc.
>>2244707Just a retarded setup, with a disgusting amount of blur.
>>2244808thanks, i found the original

I just looked through archives for both /g/ and /w/ and haven't found a single link. I'll assume you're just lying about having posted them, so anons won't beg you to release your software.

Tempted to install Bookworm and don't care about anything else
>>2245636can u post the wallpaper plz?
>>2245634everyone has to start linux from somewhere

>>2245658What text editor is it?
>>2245055what xfce theme is this?
>>2245677fuck it, made it myself
>>2245079its 16x16 tile pattern>>2245157whenever i decide to make the website for it
>>2244800>>2244792pretty>>2245574I replaced the context menu with Xoblite (BlackBox), changed the Windows UI with Winaero Tweaker, added some AHK scripts, Userstyle and used Rainmeter/Electron/Startisback for the funky bar. The only challenging part of that setup was wokring with Foobar2000 iirc.
>>2244807What program do u use for the little album cover on the bottom right?
nothing crazy but I enjoy it.
>>2245778It's an inbuilt feature in iTunes; if you have iTunes you can press "ctrl+shift+1" or go to view and show miniplayer
>>2245798I like your colourscheme
>>2244900whenever i see your posts i just wonder what kind of person would take so much time to rice, make custom css for 4chan and is into loli's so most like pedo. you're the true incarnation of basement dwelling nerds, i wouldn't be surprised if you spend majority of your time thinking about transitioning into a full blown tranny
>>2245941Trying way too hard
>>2245528what is that movie? Evil Dead? Looks fire
>>2245961Not him, but that's Army of Darkness.
>>2245776u dont still have that layout do u ? if u do can u share i love it
>>2245636that's such a cute terminal font, what's it called?
>>2246010Not him, but it's right there in the neofetch, Cozette Medium 8.
>>2246012silly me. thanks anon
>>2246003i am doing all that i can to make my desktop look like yours right now. seamonkey is pretty cool so far, what theme are you using? also, is there a particular theme you're using for your desktop? it looks very cde
>>2246017>what theme are you using?It's Orthodox for SeaMonkey.https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-us/seamonkey/addon/orthodox-for-seamonkey/?src=cb-dl-users>is there a particular theme you're using for your desktop?I made it all with FVWM, I wanted to make the panel look similar to the panel in KDE 3.
>>2246018though disappointing, as I can't find a similar kde theme (besides irixium and commonality which I think have bad colour palettes) that's also very impressive, quite well done
>>2246019Thank you, anon.
>>2244752can we get the render bestie
>>2246052Using neofetch on windows is a criminal charge lol
>>2246067especially on the default terminal
>>2246067its winfetch, through scoop
>>2244780Nice azunyan wallpaper. Had to image search that.>>2244963simple and cute>>2245279fellow fvwm chad
>>2246082Jesus Christ, organize that shit.

>>2245393I absolutely adore the Sonny Boy soundtrack
>>2244707cute anime girls
>>2246197>1Love this one, mind sharing color scheme, font, and/or wm?
>>2246151it's arch running hyprland with gruvbox color scheme (without the ugly green), bar is waybar configured in a "minimalist" way with inconsolata as the font. i also used the font for my terminal.the music player is cmus and the visualizer is cava. it's nothing special really, but i'm glad that you liked it.wallpaper attached.>>2246161it's awesome.
>>2246277nta but the wm looks like dwm. Font is maybe inconsolata? or at least looks to be.
>>2246325I like it. Simple and clean.
>>2245410what font is that? it's very cool
>>2246277I took the color scheme from this wallpaper [ https://imgur.com/a/JEfxZV8 ], the wm is dwm and the font in nerd fonts (ttf-nerd-fonts)
>>2246382also for the color scheme I used pywal
new install on old mac
>>2246408hell fucking yeah can we get this wallpaper
>>2246353Im new to these threads, usually am a /fit/tard, why and how do you guys have those windows with text or an image open? Do you have a bunch of programs that customize the way windows look?
>>2246451Do you mean the one circled in red? If so, it's a program called neofetch, it displays what OS you're running and its logo. There's also information about what hardware and software that you're using. If you mean the open image, it's just something some people do in desktop threads.
>>2246456All of them in general, like the folders in that picture, the guy with the helmet , the old school aesthetic to all the ui, is there a program that lets u customize those things?
>>2246461>foldersThat depends on the icon theme that you use. You can find icon and other themes at places like:https://www.gnome-look.org/browse?cat=132&ord=latesthttps://store.kde.org/browse?cat=132&ord=latest>the guy with the helmetThat's just a screenshot from an anime, nothing special, the image viewer used is called feh.>the old school aesthetic to all the uiThat all depends on what desktop environment (DE)/window manager (WM) that you use. If you used a DE you would need to install a theme, those can be found in the links that I provided. In the particular case of my laptop (the screenshot that you initially quoted) I'm using a stand alone WM, not a DE, the WM that I'm using is FVWM a very customizable WM, but the customization is quite difficult, especially if you're new to this.
>>2246463I'll look into those. Thank you very much for taking the time to explain
>>2246464You're welcome, anon.
>>2246197I Like it, The rounded corners and color palette.Got Marisa's aprobations.
>>2244858Love the NeXT rice!I never daily drived it, but here's my attempt at a NeXTSTEP based rice from a while back.I'm thinking of an aero like theme (>>2245055) for my current plasma setup (computer was originally running on Win7, moved because of software support being a ticking timebomb) but the classic UNIX look is tantalizing (>>2245279)
Don’t know if I can ask this here but I’m looking for the image in pic related, it was my wallpaper but my pc crapped out on me forcing me to reinstall windows and I lost the image, I’ve been trying to find it but to no avail. Hoping someone here has it.
>>2246555Never mind I found it, here it is for anyone else who'd like to use it.
>>2246555unhinged typewriter keyboard, but cool pape
mostly vanilla gnomes with a couple of tweaks.papirus icon theme, adw-gtk3, firefox gnome theme, just perfection (to move the panel to the bottom), blur my shell, appindicator and rounded window corners.
kubuntu and some changes to the settings of kde - nothing special
toastin' on an epic bread. i ditched KDE and finally started daily driving window maker after installing it on spare laptops for years. >>2246671very nice look.>>2246543i see you, fellow window maker enjoyer.>>2246076not a fan of the font used in the window decorations, but apart from that this looks pretty clean.
some old one I had
>>2244707i ama normie
>>2246787Alright Mr maker
>>2246773mind sharing the theme for firefox
>>2246782How'd you get the taskbar and ribbon
>>2246815wdym ribbon? btw the taskbar is roundedtb with windhawk.
Here's my desktop, still needs some work, but overall I'm pretty happy with it
Here's the wallpaper
>>2245157>>2245688made a webpage to "release" these programshttps://chino-chan.gitlab.io/programs.html
>>2246943I didn't know you could rice windows like this anymore. Any guides?? ur also running wsl?
>>2247022softwares i'm using- startallback - for minimal taskbar- traffic - monitor for monitoring cpu, mem- roundedtb - for corners and remove that lightbar under icons- t-clock for clock extension
>>2244707noob archuser here
>>2246384My NixOS setup on my mac
>>2244707I like xfce
Today I learned that themepacks still work on Windows 10+, it just doesn't change the shell (normally). Lots of the MS Plus icons, cursors, and sounds are nice to have.
Just got a Mac from work, how to make it better?
>>2247421Here u go
the next level of "do you know I use linux?"
>>2246823Can i get that cat girl picture? She is very cute!!!
>>2247390how do you apply them in windows 10. I have a huge collection of old windows 98/xp themes I would love to use
>>2247705You export them from Win XP/Vista and double click the file on Win 10
>>2247713hmm... i'll see how it goes. probably will break something. just take a xp theme and double click it and boom theme installed.
>>2246823Catgirls overrated where doggirls?
>>2247771just tells me it cant install that type of theme.
>>2247772Don't know any doggirls...the truth is I just started watching this shit.
>>2247793I tried it too anon and it didn't work. It also broke my Task Manager.I wish there was an easier way to have the classic theme on Windows 10 :(
>>2248110yeah I cant get windows xp themes to install. I tried a couple of different ones. They work great in my various windows xp VM tho.
>>2248220This is really cool! Can you send me the wallpaper?
Openbox + tint2, ol' reliable...

>>2248966pacman -S gnome.
>>2249031It's a tiled background that's too small to post on /w/.https://litter.catbox.moe/ftva0w.png

Finally figured out NeoFetch theming.
my man uses arch btw
>>2248110try retrobar or windowblindsi'm pretty sure they work together too
>>2249406can you repost? can't see the full image from the archive, not sure why it was deleted. assuming a mistake?
>>2249468how do you make LoL run on linux ?
>>2249468Really nice, anon.
>>2249578Have you tried lutris?
>>2245615Fucking nice. I watched it for the first time recently and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was.
I'm resisting my urge to UwU.
>>2249826how'd you get a transparent taskbar
>>2249376looks like ncmpcpp
>>2249833TranslucentTB, it's in the Microsoft store for free.
>>2249826why scoop and not winget?
>>2249882I must be honest, I don't use package managers so often, at least not on windows, so I went for the first option with an active community
>>2249468link to the remilia start orb?
>>2250038nevermind, it's a cursor
>>2249510>>2249525>>2249280>>2249074These papes are really cool>>2249685>>2250287Ok I really like the theming on these
>>2244707this thread still up. i have changed a lot of stuff and achieved perfection
it seems as if window maker desktops are getting rarer as of late..
>>2246539what wm is discan u provide dots? i do really like this, very minimal

>>2250719can you share your wallpapers folder anon please?
Too lazy atm to rice it up
>>2248322checked and blessed
>>2249685do not resist the urge, UwU al you want
>>2250549Hi newfag here, would you mind telling me how you achieved that look? I'm talking about how you modified your firefox and how your title bar looks different too, especially control buttons. I tried looking it but I didn't find much. Even a link to a guide would be more than enough. Thanks
>>2250785Who is that character?
>>2251153Not him, but it's an original character drawn by Range Murata. https://safebooru.org/index.php?page=post&s=view&id=2014641

>>2244792Does cinnamon have something akin to auto tyling like the pop shell/bismuth for gnome and kde?Also, nice to see someone listening to banco in one of these threads. Good taste, anon
>>2251157Thanks, thinking about making a pape with her.
>>2251161Thank you very much :3
>>2245634How have things been?

>>2249468Is there any easy way to port windows cursors to linux?
>>2249525please upload that wallpaper.
both integrated and dedicated GPUs becouse apparently neofetch does not like Windows.Can't blame him.
>>2249628lutris is ass, just wine with extra steps. just use wine.
>>2244963I like the wallpaper
Is it possible to make a setup with a traditional DE that doesn't look like absolute dogshit?Like, for whatever reason only the twm rices look good to me but I don't want to actually switch to one
>>2246382>>2251332With KDE, make it so the bar can be toggled on and off quickly with a keyboard shortcut, disable window title bars, and use tiling shortcuts (if you like that kind of workflow)
>>2245410I remember you!!1!I asked for your wallpaper like 2 weeks ago and you sent it.Ty anon
>>2246153Hey anon, do you have the full image? And the story behind it?
I'm still working on the colors.
