Will Linux ever look this good?
Nope, and won't be near as smooth. Pic related, giving Ubuntu a whirl for a whole month to see how much I can deal with it. It's ok so far, I need to find a better file browser for sure. I also can't seem to get my other display working with these nvidia drivers.
I'll probably slap Cinnamon or Mate on here, but my annoyances so far aren't with Unity. I'm finding many programs to just be shit compared to their defaults even on Windows or OS X.
>installs shitty icon pack
>wonders why things look like shit
As somebody who has used all major DEs and WMs quite extensively, Unity is workable and ultimately needs to exist if we want Average Joe to be able to use Linux.
To each their own, but fuck off with this"FUCK UNITY LOL" meme.
like what? I'm genuinely curious
also, mate is trash too. Haven't used Cinammon in forever so I can't comment
Gnome 3 is the best. It even has classic mode that is literally everything mate is trying to be but better.
Every icon pack I fuck with looks like shit desudesu senpaifam
I need to get a different file browser for sure, the screenshot utility is garbage, rythmbox is featureless and most linux music players look like ass, etc
you have no idea what you're talking about. Ubuntu isn't a DE. Unity is. Unity has a shit filebrowser and shit default programs
Gnome 3 and XFCE have better file browsers and terminals.
it's funny though that you're comparing it to OSX which has the worst file browser of all time
I know what the fuck I'm talking about. Ubuntu's default file browser back in 2007-2008 was shit as well, Nautilus i think that was bundled with Gnome 2.0. Doesn't matter, I can install whatever file browser I want, even with Unity. I just need to bother to take a look into what is out there anymore, as it's been 5+ years since I used linux enough of the time to care.
"Files" under Unity, by default, is far worse than Finder. That indeed is an impressive feat, no?
OS X does one thing and it does it well. Linux has better customization, but will almost never look better than OS X unless you spend a lot of time on it.
>Using fucking Unity
May as well choke yourself with a bag of dicks
Pic related, Ubuntu MATE is sexy as fuck
Was a couple years ago that I did that, use MATE now I'm >>52254179
Gnome 2.0 FTFW, unity is a pile of vomit
That's the actual book put out by the lua foundation and it's fucking trash
Are you implying I should stay in the terminal?
I already do, it's the only point to using linux, that cli is comfy as fuck
Unity is bad, it gets in the way of what I'm trying to do, whatever that is, it's better than when I started using it
12.04 holocaust survivor
but nonetheless it's one of the worse DE's out there
If i was to switch to MATE right now, does this guide look like what I need to do? It's been awhile since I did something like this.
Do I just restart the computer afterwards, or log-out then select Mate as my login session?
I'm more a a flat-plat man myself
The thing about themes like this is that they look great, as long as the applications you use are modern GTK apps. But the world of GUI frameworks is completely up in the air on Linux and you usually end up with a really disjointed set of applications that don't conform to any one style.
I autohide everyhing and barely use my mouse.
I've been using Ubuntu 14.04 for a while now, and it looks like its gnome version is too old for Arc, and I'm not sure if upgrading Gnome/gtk by itself is going to break stuff, and I feel like upgrading the whole system for the theme is too much of a hassle.
Will OS X ever look this good?
just got done customising my xubuntu setup /g/
