I'm not really into ricing. This is just GNOME 3 with all the defaults except for the background, obviously.

Boring, I know. But I am comfortable enough with it.

>tfw nothing to use a terminal for
>tfw no ricing experience

I would like to know how to do that "icons on bottom of the screen" thing. Also that thing on the left side of admin's screen. I actually just got done changing my themes and icons. I'm ready to rice!


The "icons on the bottom of the screen thing" is often accomplished with Plank (http://wiki.go-docky.com/?title=Plank:Introduction) (as it is in >>51) . I don't know specifically what Itamae uses, but Conky (http://conky.sourceforge.net/) can be used to achieve that same kind of cool matrix-y system information.

Happy ricing!

Thanks, I'm using Cairo Dock for now, because it was easier to find and install. I'm digging it so far. Most of my current rice was inspired by this guy's build


I don't really play a lot of games, plus I just got this laptop, so my folder's pretty haggard right now. Normally, there would be a copy of WINSPMBT in there, but I haven't gotten around to installing it. I only end up playing that when I'm really bored, because it takes forever to actually get through a match.

They're WindowMaker dockapps, a relic to the dead operating system NeXTSTEP, a precursor to Mac OS X. I run openbox, but they also run on fluxbox in my test, gnome as well, so I'm sure they'll run in most anything.

I used to rice my desktop some time ago, but recently I stopped caring. Bought this laptop recently since I moved out and just slapped a Gentoo-based distro on it with KDE as default but I quickly moved back to tiling WM.

I need to change the top bar colors though, they are too bright.

I actually use Links2 and Goggles Music Manager (*not GOOGLE, GOGGLES*) for normal use, I just have my bloated crap open tonight for kicks.

I'm a cybersecurity engineer at a small tech startup by day and grad student by night so I have very little time to rice my desktop, although I was into that back when I was in High School. (Slackware and Crunchbang were my beat back then!)

You don't have to justify for not ricing your stuffs, if it works for you that's great then.

Personally I can't manage to use anything else than i3 even if I miss some bell and whistles (menu, icons, min/maximize windows) but other than that it works as mush as another desktop env to get shits done.

>Post your real setup only, not that riced gentoo install with i3-gaps you have in a VM..

My real setup for years was a i3 desktop with all the things you could expect from something as bare as this. Last week I switched on XFCE, then Mate, because I'm sick to struggle and tweak and search and script just to stay on the light side.

Too bad if I have to use systemd, gnomeconf or pulseaudio, now I just want to do stuffs simply in a somewhat unified environment. I'll keep the shell for Sashimi, hacking, programming and server tasks. I have the same keybindings than i3 and it offers basics tiling/sizing capabilities anyway. Mate feels lighter and more responsive than XFCE too.

I have that cute madobe nanami soundpack too.
Though I have to avoid using minimize/maximize too often or the JAJAN JAJAN JAJAN JAJAJANANAAJAAJAJAJNA would get annoying.
I think the win8-tan soundpack was better for this, but its not appropriate to use win8-tan sounds on win7, and I dont intend to use win8 itself.

Pretty stock, but very comfy.

Well, my old community on /g/ just got banned out of existence, so I guess I'll start posting around here more often.
Anyways, I updated my colour scheme and refined my browser css some. I think it looks really nice now.
I think I'll work on making a stylesheet for this site now.

I'm using XFCE with the axiomd theme.

Fun fact, I'm actually >>34. I ditched GNOME for XFCE and I've loved it ever since.
