install this shit on arch, it's a resource hog and half the shit is broken, switched to gnome3 and system is smooth and responsive, everything just werks.
don't fall for the linux mint garbage, they are useless.
Works perfectly for me
Never really used it so that might be true
Yeah if you install Openbox and don't configure anything like a retard then you shouldn't be using a Linux distibution.
fuck off cinnamon dev, I already switched to gnome and remove all traces of your shit tier resource hog DE
impossible to disable touchpad automatically on mouse detection, I got a working udev rule but synclient would crash. on gnome it just werks.
resource hog, I had to hard reset my laptop a few time because it became totally unresponsive
crash on resume from sleep
I installed gnome3 and all issues are gone
>Moves to GNOME
How does it feel to be this retard?
Alternatively,how does it feel to be this poor?
My mom's son uses it, he says it's pretty fast
I agree but I don't use resource intensive DEs anyway because they're just not as fast, no matter how good your PC is.
What features does GNOME have that others don't?
>KDE is faster than Xfce
Werks for you I guess. I tried both and Xfce is a lot faster than KDE is for me. KDE is still way better than GNOME though (not because it's less resource intensive but because it's actually not garbage).
Yeah KDE is pretty good these days though, I remember comparing it to Gnome3 in terms of ram usage etc last year and KDE actually came out on top, it was using less ram than Gnome3 on a clean boot but it was pretty close.
I still am bouncing between cinnamon and plasma.
Configuring plasma is actually a true royal pain but it's actually the best featured DE
Cinnamon on the other hand is the true successor to Gnome.
Gnome 3 was a mistake
I would definetely use KDE Plasma. I've tried out Cinnamon, it's not nearly as bad as GNOME 3 but I don't really like it. What exactly is the point of Cinnamon? It doesn't have any features that other DEs don't have.
Replacement for GNOME 3 with literally no timesink configuration period. Shit just looks and feels nice by default.
While GNOME cucklods will spend eternity installing firecucks and installing basic plugins via the web browser
Is there any truly comfy DE?
I've tried the following, in order of best to shittest:
Gnome 3 (with plugins)
I don't even understand how plasma is so shit, It's like the developers never take stock, they just keep developing shitware ontop of everything, bloat: the DE.
What should I install now? I get sick of them eventually, I want something that is truly comfortable.
What's not usable about it? You type in the program you want to launch, it shows you a list of matching keywords and then you launch it.
I have a dmenu2 installed, but I forget what the difference between it and dmenu is
Cinnamon just does not like playing nicely with arch based systems it's still a great DE I switched to fedora after getting frustrated at how much was broken on manjaro. For me having a properly integrated DE I enjoy using is more important than the distro.
>not using mwm
Too bad it was fucked up by mint devs
- themes replaced with shitty mint ones
- every application renamed to some spanish shit no one can remember
- some other fuckups ("patches" for mint specific shit no one actually wants to use)
i have been using cinnamon in my arch install for three or so weeks now. it's a'ight.
i was trying to give a chance to budgie but god dammit they fucked the shit up with the last update and the introduction of "raven" the retarded side panel for notifications and shit.
if i could have something like the menu from budgie on an openbox environment, i would be so happy.
I did briefly try it on arch prior to using Manjaro but I didn't really use it long enough to configure everything.
There aren't huge problems just enough little things to be annoying like system tray icons not working for most programs qbittorrent, hexchat ect. I'll probably go back and try again once the next version comes out as I did think it looked nice.
KDE > Cinnamon > 50 ft pile of shit > Gnome 3
Too bad your PC is a literal toaster
Alright guys, whats even some good desktop environment to use right now? It has to look good OOTB and be bullshit-free.
- Gnome3 would be great, but I hate the hueg window titles, the useless title bar, the "click-instead-of-hovering" menus in gtk3 and how bad gtk2 applications integrate.
- I like KDE less, its ugly, bloated and lacks any form of design principles, its basically Windows tier.
- XFCE or LXDE just look dated and won't have Wayland support
- I don't want to use a tiling WM.
Whats left? Unity is ok but it only really supports Ubuntu. What about that ElementaryOS, LXQT or that SolusOS DE?
I take that back regarding Plasma 5
it has the potential to look really good, but, well
It reminds me of someone going through puberty
it's GOING to look good, and it's getting there, but it still looks awkward and stuck inbetween two paradigms
gnome 3 has had a bug open since 2011 for it randomly freezing and locking up for nvidia users
for example, why are the clock and toolbar fonts two different sizes, possibly even two different fonts?
Why are some icons flat and others detailed? Why are some smaller/larger/wider/thinner than others?
Why is the titlebar a gray/teal and the toolbar white?
Why are the icons in the upper left of
blue, but the icons in the start menu gray?
it's just inconsistent and needs time to mature
>for example, why are the clock and toolbar fonts two different sizes, possibly even two different fonts?
to make the clock more distinct.
>Why are some icons flat and others detailed? Why are some smaller/larger/wider/thinner than others?
Incompetency of KDE devs/artist, but I think it could be the matter of a more early version. Plasma 5 is still kind of fresh.
>Why is the titlebar a gray/teal and the toolbar white?
There's nothing wrong with that
>blue, but the icons in the start menu gray?
What? Folder icons for breeze theme are blue, category icons are gray.
>it's GOING to look good, and it's getting there, but it still looks awkward and stuck inbetween two paradigms
KDE has been perpetually in that state since before Plasma 5.

Why the fuck would anyone want bloat on their on there system? You can't even defend that you sick bastard.
I don't need to try it, I already use Cinnamon on my desktop where I don't give a fuck
but holy shit all those dependencies, forget about a small profile installation. I just wanted to see what it'd be like to run it on here but forget that
