Hey /g/,

Best Linux distros / visual mods

>I'd like to give Linux a shot, but I'd also like to use a decent looking UI (Pic related)
>Which Linux distro does /g/ recommend, and how do go about modding it?

TL;DR: I want the above Pic as my OS
>>
Gnome 3 with some GTK theme & shell theme.

Check out GnomeLook
>>
>>52378375
Install Ubuntu Gnome
then install the arc theme

Fedora is gnome's dev OS, but the default font config is shit because of the whole sub-pixel patent thing.

You can fix it, but it's just an extra step

Rice it: https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php/GNU/Linux_ricing

Alternatively:
>KDE Plasma 5
>Deepin
>gnome

Those do not require ricing but the only good desktop is a customized desktop.

We always have like 3 desktop threads up and 1 stupid questions thread so you wont have problems asking.
>>
>>52378375
>Simple, easy, werks
Cinnamon, Gnome3 with themes

>Ricefag
Arch
Most of the really good looking desktops in the desktop threads run Arch. It takes some work and it's not for beginners, but you can get a really nice looking OS out of it.
>>
>>52378467
Is that i3?
>>
>>52378527
I don't know, I just wanted a webm from the million that there are in desktop threads
>>
>>52378518
He doesn't need Arch to rice. You can also rice Ubuntu/Fedora/Any other distro.
>>
>>52378518
>Cinnamon, Gnome3

those aren't even distros how the fuck are you comparing a DE to a distro you ignorant piece of shit
>>
>>52378375
Literally
>GNOME 3
>gtk-theme-arc
>some flat icon theme (Go for ultra-flat-icons)

You do not need any specific distro for this
Enjoy freedom

If you really want an advice since you are too new, install Ubuntu GNOME and the themes stated above
>>
Arch with i3

OP here

Found it on Git: https://github.com/horst3180/Arc-theme

What is this guy running underneath? Arch?
>>
>>52380354
Just install antergos.. it comes with an easy2use installer and you'll be able to choose between a bunch of stuff... The theme can be found in the antergos repo...

sudo pacman -S gtk-theme-arc

It really is that simple
>>
>>52379377
Dolphin is just so comfy isn't it?
>>
>>52380394
What's the difference between Antergos Live and minimal?
>>
>>52380567
Ignore my post, Live is better

>>52379377

kek'd

>>52378375
Not him. But I found a sick icon theme which goes well with arc. Search the aur for oranchella.
