Good tip, thanks. Drop the gnome desktop, use a terminal window instead ... quicker, easier and a vast improvement. Nice retro feel about it as well.

I was referring to using the keyboard to navigate Gnome instead of using the meuse. :roll:

i do find it a bit weird that for every bit of non-standard functionality one has to install an extension, and that these aren't installed the usual way but by clicking a link on a website...
what happened to good old config files? much easier imho.

You make it sound like a big deal. You only install them once, much like any other piece of software.

Can you install them via command line (apt-get)?

Yeah, then I don't see how that's any different than standard desktop environments.

Oh no! Something has gone wrong

by VaporTrail »---- Jessie installs and runs fine on this laptop if I choose KDE or XFCE during installation. It is only if I try to install Gnome,-----snip--


Post by stevepusser » 2017-05-25 14:33
KDE and xfce don't require the same level of 3D as default in the desktop as GNOME 3


To me, it seems like the solution to the problem is clear, ------

A couple of years ago I started noticing the problems associated with Gnome,
there is nothing wrong with my hardware either. I am still using the same hardware
today, and it ( my hardware) works just fine , as long as Gnome is not involved. So I use a Window Manager, Open Box, it works better then Gnome ever did,.. since my wife likes a DE
better, I have XFCE on her laptop,..
I am not going to go out and buy brand new hardware, just so I can use Gnome, not when every other WM or DE work just fine ,.. (well actually I don't know on KDE, I have not tried
it,...)

To me, as well. Those who don't like using GNOME shouldn't use it. There, problem solved.

Will you do that every time Garry when someone posts a problem with Gnome, You'll post it here and use it as a reason why you won't use Gnome. It's not like the OP of that topic was complaining. :roll:

If you have a problem with what I post, please use the report button, or PM me,..it seems like you have nothing better to do then follow me around, and post complaints about my posts.
To answer your question, or I guess it was a question, but there is no question mark,no probably not every time, but when I feel like it, I will.
I did nothing wrong in posting this here, and I never said anything about the OP in the other topic complaining, ,,, no they were not complaining, ........
Gnome started becoming very problematic several years ago, so that is why I stopped
using it.
I does not appear that the developers of Gnome care, not have much interest in trying
to fix the problems with it. But really that does not matter, since there are so many better
options.
==== RE: Solution Of Your Cycle Storage ====
That is a pretty neat advertisement, almost all the factories around here have those,
they are pretty convenient and do help save space, it is also nice to have a place that has shade for ones bicycle. , thanks for sharing the photo.

Perhaps the Gnome developers don't see any problems. Why would they, it's like that by design. That is, assuming you're not referring to bugs.

Because i find Window Manager (WM) simpler easy to config settings. Also i'd like to do individual work more than static default settings.
So, Always Window Manager my choice.
