We're on a new board, so why not a new desktop thread? Let's keep this board active. Hopefully a fresh thread will draw some activity.

looking at this thread i noticed how vanilla my desktop is lmao


What language is that? Go?


I'm an idiot. It's rust.


haha nah you're not an idiot
Rust isn't the easiest to parse language out there.
it's just a simple db-server implementation using the rocket web framework and the diesel ORM library


It says on the bottom lol. I missed it at first glance.

How's rust? It looks like a mix of scala and C++.


it's pretty alright. I like the tooling and the memory model. Much to do with server-side processes. the community is active, but a bit identitarian.


Xubuntu is based


I switched from dwm to KDE but is there something that is:
>less bloated than kde
>not as barebones as suckless trash
>stacking, no tiling
>can do semi tiling where you drag the window to the side and it fills half the screen
>future proof (hasn't been abandoned and has a wayland successor in development)

Maybe lxqt? But I think that pure openbox doesn't have semi tiling, Idk if lxqt does.




but those are for hotkeys? I was talking about how in, for example, KDE you can drag the window with a _mouse_ to the right side or to a corner and it would tile it automatically. I've no doubts that you can do it with hotkeys in openbox but I want a mouse experience.




But isn't it becoming more gnomified? CSDs in the settings apps aren't a good sign tbh. And apparently the might even use Mutter to enable wayland support.


No idea what any of that means, I just use it because it is comfy.

>stacking, no tiling

Window resizing in Rio might be fast and precise enough to be equivalent to tiling (video related but when creating terminals and resizing windows, Rio actually shows the dimensions as a red rectangle, which ffmpeg doesn't record, the windows seem a bit slow because of picom and the text is huge, because I sit >2m apart from my monitor)
>less bloated than kde
which rio|xargs du -h
% ps aux|egrep '[0-9] /?([^ ]/)*rio'|tr -s ' ' ' '|cut -d ' ' -f 5 # Show virtual memory of Rio in KiB
>not as barebones as suckless trash
It might be too minimal for your liking, though remember, this allows other programs to act fullfill any missing functions (I position audacious, xclock and plan9 stats with xdotool in my xinitrc).
>future proof (hasn't been abandoned and has a wayland successor in development)
There is already a clone for Wayland https://wio-project.org/


great, now I want to fuck my desktop environment..


After fucking around with openbox I've come to a decision that this isn't worth it anymore and I'll just stick to KDE.

Sorry to see you go, KDE can't do pipe menus.


Why would I need to have a menu like that when I can just press meta key and quickly enter what I need to launch?


And when you don't know what you need to launch?


Idk, never happened. I've been doing that even back when I used windows 8 and I've been doing that when I ran dwm (or other window managers) for many many months and the only thing I've used to launch stuff was dmenu and never once I've ran into the issue of not knowing what to type in.

You know you can do a lot more than launch things with pipe menus, right? That last image wasn't even a launcher, it was a file browser.

I can't really think of anything I would to do in a menu. Definitely not sending emails (I don't even use email for anything outside of website signups)


Just got started with Xfce, where should I go from here?

Why do you use a rolling release? Are you really willing to sacrifice security + stability just to get new features a bit sooner?


That's the reason I switched from Ubuntu, yes. Non-rolling release distros are actually more insecure since unfixed vulnerabilities can be really dangerous, that's why Microsoft is so anal about getting you to install updates all the time.
I also just like the convenience of typing one command to update everything instead of having to reinstall the entire system every new update, plus Arch just has better documentation and support in general than any other distro and it doesn't come severely bloated out of the box.

Oh, and can't also forget about how good pacman + yay is.


Stable and LTS releases both address bugs and vulnerabilities; they just don't add features so soon. They're versions that get tested more before being released (relative to bleeding edge releases) however security is something that updates are released for.
From what I've seen, the OSs which make you reinstall the whole system are in the minority. I know that's the case for mobile distros like LineageOS, however with the main desktop distros you just download and install, with the most inconvenience being some extra time spent during boot applying the updates. I do agree about the documentation though, I use the wiki despite not using the OS myself, and the lack of bloat is also a bit of a plus but frankly it really doesn't seem it's worth the relative hastiness of package testing. Better reliability and security are way more central than shaving off some bloat and having new features quicker, I'm certain.

very lickable feet


But don't go anywhere near her face unless you like the taste of an ashtray.


I would share my desktop but I have a wallpaper of my waifu and I'm a windowsfag so I would get laughed at.


Show us your dual-booted Linux install


Post your wallpaper.
