It looks like this.
>>
>>45899254
chromeos/10
is there a similar desktop environment?
>>
>>45899224
Like UX was thought about for a moment.

To save you all the hassle, >>>/v/

>>45899273
Pantheon, from elementary OS.
>>
Whatever you want it to be anon, that's the beauty of GNU/Linux
>>
>>45899224
What is that? Some sort of android? Looks nice.
>>
>>45899415
Nevermind quantum os
>>
>>45899415
QuantumOS. It's a desktop environment for linux.
>>
>>45899224
What was the Gnome3 theme that everyone used a year ago? That one.
>>
>>45899224
Ugly and unpractical as fuck

Found it https://github.com/hdni/Phosphene

Like any decent tiling wm.
>>
>>45899254
That looks like a babyOS.

Fisher-Price tier.
>>
>>45899527
Windows 8 looks fisher-price, OSX mavericks looks fisher-price, Android 5 looks fisher-price, now Chome looks fisher-price and some FOSS environtments are doing it too?

this is just fisher-price shilling at this point, they want you thinking "fisher-price" when you look at your computer

>>45899403
How do you get your urxvt like that? If I change the colors in my config file, nothing happens.
>>
>>45899559
>it doesn't work on my machine
linux in a nutshell
>>
>>45899490
I'm loving that theme but development is deead. Do you know any others like that anon?
>>
>>45899403
Beautiful. Best Linux desktop I've ever seen.
>>
>>45899578
1/10 made me respond

in what parallel universe?

>>45899547
oh shit, haven't thought about it that way.

Next thing will be renaming all programs to apps in all OS.
>>
>>45899586
How's Numix?
>>
I'm fine with this setup, and I've been using it for a while, though I've been wanting to try something more excentric, like i3 WM.
>>
like YOU want
>>
Don't know how to change the battery icons (cbatticon in case you were wondering)
>>
>>45899734
rude

>>45899734
>No compositor
I need to have my shadows.
>>
>>45899759
I don't like compositors.
>>
>>45899792
Alright, fair enough. I just find everything looks a bit too plain without it. Compositing gives the windows some depth, which I find good looking. Oh yeah, forgot to share my WM and GTK themes.
>>
>>45899356
how do i make ubuntu look like this? please help
>>
>>45900445
you only have to download and install the numix theme.
It's probably already in ubantoo.
>>
>>45900473
thank you
>>
>>45899224
consistent design
keeps with modern trends
easy to use but with a lot of features
customizable to a degree
little or no bugs
nice animations
>>
>>45899403
looks like shit
>>
>>45899559
Have you tried restarting X, so it can update .Xresources?

also post the config on pastebin, let me see.
>>
>>45899559
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

dipshit
>>
>>45900643
Yes, I have tried that.
http://pastebin.com/EBfnQyxG

>>45900653
bash: xrdb: command not found
>>
>>45901131
Should there be asterisks instead of dots?

try this
http://pastebin.com/xpdTC9Wd
>>
like Windows 7
>>
>>45899640
>implying it's not already done in Windows 8, OS X, iOS and Android, which account for something like 99 % of electronic devices users who are technological illliterates.
>>
>>45901679
>>
>>45901679
Done that, doesn't work.
I remember something about editing the .Xdefaults or .bashrc instead of the .Xresources, but I'm not sure if it works.
>>
>>45902165
>but I'm not sure if it works.
why would I know that?
try and see
>>
>>45899683
oi anão :3
>>
>>45902351
Oh and when I did xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources, urxvt didn't start anymore until I rebooted.
>>
there's a material design theme?
>>
>>45899254
>愛してるさわこ !BE/4wes0mE is now pretending to be into apping apps for the apper generation
when will this farce of a life end?
>>
>>45899586
Why would you want a theme to be in perpetual development?

>>45900611
>keeps with modern trends
Nah.
>animations
Nah.

>>45899843
Why is everything so gigantic? The text size is almost fine but everything else has ridiculous padding.
>>
>>45899224
Unity.

It should look the way it looks out the box. Unless, of course, you have autism
