What does your desktop look like?

Testing the RC1 installer again, went for the full GNOME this time:

Image Image

That system is nicely contained within a btrfs subvolume shared with another subvolume (on the same partition) holding my Alpine Linux system.

The installer doesn't support subvolumes (AFAIK) so I had to use QEMU instead, quick HowTo:

First create a raw disk image:
Code: Select all
qemu-img create -f raw disk.img 10G

Use QEMU and the RC1 installer on the image then mount it:
Code: Select all
# mount -o offset=$((2048*512)) disk.img /mnt

And finally rsync the contents from /mnt/ to the subvolume.

Remember to update /etc/fstab afterwards and also install the btrfs-progs package when the new system is booted to add the kernel modules to the initramfs image.

^Yeah, GNOME is finally great on Debian. I just stick to stock Adwaita theme and icons, they look modern.

GNOME has always been great on Debian :)

I like the theme but I can't stand the icons, Faba is good though (IMO).

Anyway, Night Light scrot to keep this on-topic:

That is nice, looks good.

Below, to me this is really nice, I like it:

I know, with VM 's quite often a system and programs will run a little slow, that is to be
expected, so of course on real hardware everything usually seems better.
But, I found it interesting, on the other VM, also Debian Buster, even OpenBox responded slower then it would on bare metal, not much , but a little. So any way, on this one I decided to try "fluxbox", have not used it in years. I was happy and surprised to see it is "snappy", quick to respond, and seems to be ideal for on a VM.

Got sick of GNOME:

Image

Version 6.2 of dwm now runs CS:GO with no problems, which is nice.

If anybody wants that desktop I have packages here:

https://build.opensuse.org/package/show ... esktop/dwm

The slstatus package (for the panel status readout) looks for BAT0 so it's pretty specific.

For the dwm package I've added a dwm-session script (and a matching .desktop file) that autostarts slstatus and adds itself to the x-session-manager alternative so it can be run from a display manager (or plain startx with no ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession required).

Just stock GNOME, with Dark Souls 3 Fire Keeper as wallpaper:

This is 2nd workspace, I've got a few Chromium tabs open in first, that's why it's 1.7 GB of RAM.

I love GNOME but dwm has boosted the framerate in CS:GO significantly.

Anyway, here's an action shot to stay on-topic:

I am not a big fan of XFCE, but any way, seems to be working fine on a QEMU VM, hosted by OpenBsd:
Image

Interesting to note, I upgraded today, 19, May , just before I installed the "Nemo" file manager, wanted to see if it worked any better on XFCE then it did on Fluxbox, and it did. But I see now, it is showing Debian 10 Buster , even though Buster has not been officially released yet, seems like it must be getting really close to being released now, and I am noticing a improvement, over what it was like even just a week ago.

I like the default Buster wallpaper but it's a bit too grey so I tweaked it. netinstall with kde-plasma-desktop.
