Recently moved from KDE > Xfce on my Bullseye install. All repository save Albion Online, Simplenote, and Zoom. These are via flatpak. I also built Makemkv against Debian from the ppa source. Backports kernel & wine. Vimix icon theme and Materia dark gtk theme from the repositories. Xolonium font (found on random free fonts site a few years back and kept it).

Not so Common Desktop Environment (NsCDE) in Debian 11.6.

What is NsCDE?

NsCDE is a retro but powerful UNIX desktop environment which resembles CDE look (and partially feel) but with a more powerful and flexible framework beneath-the-surface, more suited for 21st century unix-like and Linux systems and user requirements than original CDE.

Image

Visually, NsCDE mimics CDE, the well known Common Desktop Environment of many commercial UNIX systems of the nineties. It supports CDE backdrops and palettes with FVWM colorsets and has a theme generator for Xt, Xaw, Motif, GTK2, GTK3, Qt4 and Qt5. Integrating all these bits and pieces, the user gets a retro visual experience across almost all X11 applications.

This is seriously slick. There's nothing worse than being forced to use a toolkit you normally don't use and finding out that your theme looks off in it. I applaud them for integrating looks more consistently at a time when e.g. GTK doesn't really care how their stuff looks on KDE or on someone's random window manager. We used to be better at this some 15 years ago.

I have used some qt applications and can confirm that their overall style works well in a common environment.

P.S.

On another ancient machine i use motif wm.

Sawfish wm...I recently discovered this window manager. Absolutely brilliant. Simple and brilliant at the same time. I really like this. I finally found something that works for me.

Sawfish...It's an amazing window manager. I don't understand why sawfish is being forgotten and Openbox is much more popular..don't know why but sawfish wm is a fully configurable window manager. And it is not necessary to measure the lisp programming language. All configuration can be done using the GUI. For example, I set this window manager to virtually no mouse use using the GUI configuration tools. All control is performed using only the keyboard.

Rio is Plan 9 from Bell Labs' windowing system. It is well known for making its window management transparent to the application. It is running inside Debian 11. You can check this:

@None1975, you must have perfect eye sight if you can see that grey text on a white background.

In 9term text is black, in xterm text is black. In ncmpcpp text is grey. I think i will configure ncmpcpp. But I rarely look at him. Dunst informs me about the song change.

EMWM is a fork of the Motif Window Manager with fixes and enhancements. The idea behind this is to provide compatibility with current xorg extensions and applications, without changing the way the window manager looks and behaves. This includes support for multi-monitor setups trough Xinerama/Xrandr, UFT-8 support with Xft fonts, and overall better compatibility with software that requires Extended Window Manager Hints.

I compiled it from source and made .deb package (for my machine).
