Nothing special. I just switched to IceWM from Gnome on Debian testing last night so I have not had that much time to tweak it. I have a core-i3 and 15 Gigs of RAM but Gnome on Debian testing with firefox was an absolute resource hog especially with RAM it seems but as far as the CPU the hyperthreading should improve from the spectre and meltdown patch hit with kerne 5.9 but Debian Testing Bullseye is running 5.8 currently it seems (patience is a virtue). I like icewm I think it is more for Linux or Unix Gurus than XFCE, KDE or Gnome because it unobtrusive etc.. and you just forget it is there letting you get into a workflow leaving extra RAM and CPU for things such as compiling code or number crunching and you can have terminal windows open with tmux or whatnot but it is not as extreme as ratpoison etc...

Been playing with jgmenu on Sid/openbox - please note that jgmenu is not available in Debian, you have been warned :)

Clickable 1920x1080 screenshot:

After learning that BunsenLabs Lithium is pitching the default openbox menu I wanted to play too and with a little help from HoaS (thanks again) we got it working.

Anyway, I put a search applet at the top of the menu - if a menu is displayed all you have to do is start typing (HoaS, this is what grabbed the keyboard) and jgmenu will search user-defined keywords in .desktop files for applications.

What I did -

Copied all of /usr/share/applications to ~/.local/share applications and started hacking up .desktop files to display only what I needed - still in the process of adding keywords to .desktop files.

Did some prepends and appends to the menu so I don't have to navigate menus to get to my favorite applications (this is a dealbreaker for me).

It's a little quirky; if the menu is displayed it grabs the keyboard so a screenshooter hotkey won't work (hence the terminator window with the flameshot timer showing) and I seem to have to right-click the desktop once per session to get the menu to display at all. This appears to be a window focus thing and I may be able to fix it on my own.

edit: fixed it. Changed the right-click mousebind in openbox from "Press" to "Release".

About half a day's work here but I think the new menu is pretty neat.

The git repository contains a debian/ directory so .debs can be built locally (with 'debuild -us -uc'). Alternatively add the BunsenLabs Lithium repositories and APT key, they always package the latest version.

I'll tell You a story about about a single advertisement:
Recently, *some company* started an advertisement campaign, based on human stupidity:
The advertisement was based on showing "how wonderful" the 8K television is.
Where's the catch?
--> The advertisement showed for potential buyers was emitted in 4K, because that was the only way for 4K users to receive it...
The conclusion: Lots of people are morons -> if they can see a fantastic "8K" quality images using their old 4K TV hardware, then it means that there's no need to buy a new TV to have "fantastic quality" of video streams.

Don't buy a new TV - save the world, kick the arse of greedy corporations, which are trying to insult your intelligence ... ;)

Regards.

Decided to take a snapshot of my buster system and upgrade it to bullseye:

It was only when I had to remove texlive to get it through the upgrade that I realised the transition freeze isn't until next week but it worked eventually. Go Debian!

How dare you call that "nothing special"? Just take a better look at that debianish woman, this is all kinds of special!

I just realized that, before reading your reply, and was thinking should I move/remove/edit it or leave it as is this time?

Perhaps remove the image and replace it with a link to a new post in the correct thread containing the image.

And welcome to the forums :)

Stock gnome so far. I'm sure I'll change this up as time goes on. (edit, BBCode image resize doesn't work here it seems)
