It's christmastime, /g/entlmen! Where are the holiday backgrounds?
I feel dead. I sort of regret not saving any speed for thi smorning. But didn't want to do it for 2 days so finished it all off last night
3 clocks edition
Mfw i spend ages ricing facebook but i cant even show it because fuck all you pedophiles
oh itt was simple. i just had xfce+openbox on it before. all i did was install gnome and everything worked fine. I guess perhaps I lucked out .runs great. I know it's not super riceable. but it's a good DE .for now.
Also, side note, anyone here knows maybe how to get catalyst to act normal when it comes to screenshots/recording?
When I use Pantheon/Gnome with flgrx enabled it works fine, but when taking a screenshot I usually get a black screen or something similar.
Is there maybe a DE where it doesn't happen? KDE? Cinnamon?
So is anyone else on Arch having dependency issues with libtool-multilib after an update?
It says lib32-libltdl is out of date, but I'm using the package that it's telling me it needs, so what's going on?
Isn't Santa the original neckbeard? Think about it, dude has hidden camera in every child's room to see if they were naughty. He deliver's packages more efficiently than amazon does...
While you guys are around, do you know of any drawing tablets that work with a Kindle Fire? That, or some kind of special stylus with its own program that will allow for pseudo-pressure sensitivity
Trying to find a gift for my little sister, she's really artistic and plays with her Fire a lot
pick whatever de/wm you like, it's not that hard.
you can have crunchbangs look (openbox + tint2) on gentoo/arch/ubuntu/fedora/whatever.
>can i get it to not look like shit
wow, someone who knows fucking nothing still has the opinion that ubuntu is trash.
i bet you dont even know why people call it trash.
fuck off you useless swine
>mfw i fuck up the link.
Want to change my wallpaper, not sure what to use.
indeed it does seem to be.
cant be certain since i3 has a lot of fuckery but i'll take your word for it.
unity is one reason, but if you have the capacity to dislike unity i'd hope you have the capacity to replace it.
You could hate ubuntu bc packages are often old, my weechat is like over a year old iirc, not that it really matters in that instance.
The repos /seem/ to have less than other distros, but that could also be that i'm looking for specific less popular applications. I heard that ubuntu, or perhaps it was debian, had one of the larger if not largest repos, but take that with a grain of salt.
You could also not like ubuntu if you're a freetard.
But most problems with it can be easily fixed.
This is as an average user, i've spoken with others whom are much more advanced users than I who have reasons why they don't like it. However I can't recall them all.
But the meme-tier hate for ubuntu is just unity+amazon, the latter is a somewhat relevant reason to hate it, but its easy to get rid of completely and is off by default. so w/e

Nah the only distro they have less packages is Arch. They pretty much have every package you would find on debian, since they essentially copy and paste debian's repos. They also have ppas to make up for any package they don't have though.
Yeah thats what i thought, wasn't sure though thats why I /seem/ cause every package i want isnt there, but its also obscure shit for ricing that probably doesnt exist in the arch repos either (aside from the aur)
gdipp, it does not play well with pale moon and I keep forgetting to exclude it. In all honesty I'm probably just going to remove gdipp altogether and learn to live with default windows rendering.
I'm retarded and had difficulties with mactype, unfortunately. I think my font rendering issue is a combination of windows 8.1 x64, pale moon having poor subpixel optimization, and not really knowing what I am doing.
Is 2.4.2-15 the same as 2.4.2-15.1?
Look in your /var/lib/pacman/local dir and what do you find?
If you're sure they are the same version just create a soft link from your installed 15.1 to the same name but just ending in 15.
Not him but gl. Antergos is gg. great installer and non bloat shit. But just works. all arch repos unlike that manjaro crap. great if you don't feel like going through shit on other machines.
ready for the hate, not done ricing.
I love it, been used it for 2 years now, my HDD died last weekend soo I just did a complete reinstall on a old disk until I buy a SSD.
Before I was using KDE but I'm trying out i3 without any DE, So far I love it, but now when people come over and want to use my computer they are confused a bit.
>mala in cuba
i posted on unixporn once
they seemed to like the openbox style I was going for in xfce
it can be done in xfce/xfwm without anything extra through the settings manager
Finally getting around to customizing i3bar. Bottom one looks better than top one, no?
Not a huge fan of the icon theme but it looks pretty decent overall.
Then again, all the good parts are just provided by Yosemite, so I guess congrats on not fucking up the default too much?
Yes. Whenever I have X11 focused actually.
But personally I put it in a lot of apps, like Finder. It works like a hidden dock in that if you hold your mouse at the top of the screen, it'll slide back out.
>Have you ever thought about using bspwm instead i3?
I haven't. I've used Awesome, Spectrwm, Mcwm-Beast, herbstluftwm, and i3, but I've never tried bspwm. What does it have to offer? I'm pretty happy with i3, but if bspwm is better, I'd be happy to switch. What exactly is the integration that that title is referring to?
get it, peak? heh mountains
Well, I think it's a little bit more difficult to set up than i3 wm but as an experience overall it's really good. There's no need for you to switch if you are already good with i3.
>I think it's a little bit more difficult to set up than i3
Meh. I'm sure it's fine.
>as an experience overall it's really good
Okay. How so? What does it do nicely?
>There's no need for you to switch if you are already good with i3
Sure, but if it does something neat I'd love to switch.
whenever I've posted my past desktop screenshots people hate them
could this finally be the one to break the trend?
Hot damn. I'm convinced.
I like to actually try thing before deciding on one to use. Most of those I only used for a day just to see if I liked them. I've spent at least a year on i3
>bulgy icons with flat tabs
>panel margins different on every fucking side
>that god damn font
>jesus christ just everything about that font rendering
Make it stop
I have never seen a font setup worse that this.
>UI on firefox
>Show desktop button
>Huge pointless margins around the clock
>Huge pointless margins everywhere
Here is an example of a great windows desktop
