what's your favorite DE/WM? Currently using openbox but it requires a lot of configuration to get it all fancy shmancy and highly functional and I might want to switch, gnome looks kind of nice
>running a tiling WM and wanting gaps
fucking end yourself mate
>so poor he can't spare any real estate for a more visually appealing desktop
hi, shitskin. people also use tiling windows for the convenience in using keyboard shortcuts, and to avoid awkward overlapping windows.
now crawl on back to your malaria ridden wife in your AIDS comforter, faggot.
i tried but i think it only made changes to the recovery mode.
when i start crunchbang i get greeated with the error message and after that I can't open the terminal or file manager.
>hurr durr it looks cool
My favorite is DE is KDE . I gave gnome 3 a chance for a few months before also trying cinnamon. Gnome 3 felt really polished but it was annoying to use. I'm giving cinnamon a go currently and I heard it was really easy to customize. Anyone here have anything good to say about cinnamon?
KDE. I've been using it since version 2. It's always been ugly by default, but I like Kate as my default text editor, and most of the other KDE programs. I just wish Calligra had .doc support, then maybe I would think of dumping LibreOffice.
Wellcome to KDE anon
If you see issues, just turn off the fancy desktop effects: Alt+Shift+F12
Plasma because I don't enjoy Gnome like DE's or jewnity. Also qt and gtk* apps look the same which is all I really care about. Tried tiling wms for a while but I ended up staring at ncmpcpp and config files for way too long.
Still haven't decided on a distro to put it on however. Fedora would be fine, but I was also thinking Arch. There's an Arch derivative called Chakra that's supposedly very KDE-centric, but is it actually solid or is it just another Memejaro?
Don't know about chakra, they restrict themselves from gtk softwares(?)
Arch is the one I'd recommend if it is not a server.
Also, manjaro has improved quite a bit and actually is taking security more seriously. They fixed the latest zero day vulnerability whereas Arch hasn't yet. (If you are running the ck kernel it should be okay).
