WorkStation: Arch: plasma, zen kernel, zsh, dual monitor because I am kind of a writer... Portait is very comfy for writing; Two monitors is peak productivity, in my opinion.
Wallpaper is a drawn made by my muse and it is going to be the cover for a novel I have in its works.

Gaming PC: Nobara: plasma, fsync kernel, zsh, 144hz monitor because quake champions and overwatch.
Wallpaper is a drawn made by a friend of mine as a bday present: I'm an idsoftware fan, hence the QII logo on the t-shirt. I used to be a Super Nintendo kid, that's why I chase Genesis; Howard and his censorship in the 90's... which is why the shotgun shoots cupcakes.

All three monitors have the blue light turned off, ddcutil is great, I can stay in front of the monitor for hours without headache or eyestrain.

I don't use dock or application launcher... Krunner is enough for me.

I think this is my favourite set up, quite possibly I have posted it in a similar snap but with Debian (apologies if so!)

Plasma offers the best global application menu I have tried so far*, and allows me to port those conventions I miss from macOS: such menu and the task list, which is the only feature I was using from the dock.

(*) Global application menu is great to save vertical space when tiling windows -- that's why I miss it!

Greatly enjoying the combined experience of GNOME, with the the bleeding-edge of EndeavourOS.

Shell and Cursor are Adwaita (default GNOME theme), Icons are Deepin 2022, Font is Cantarell Regular.

Out of a "kennels" of around a dozen Puppies, this is my usual 'daily-driver'.....Quirky64 'April' 7.0.1 'lite'...


GIFCap(38).gif


The "info-center" on the right - featuring gKrellM & Puppy's native pWidgets (based on a minimal Conky) is a consistent feature of my Puppy desktops. The two 'spinning globe' GIFs along the top both act as launchers.....thanks very much due to fredx181 for the code that makes this work!

I've simply enlarged one of the 3 font-sizes in gKrellM to allow me to use the clock function as my 'desktop' clock.

NOT a fan of GNOME.....especially since Tobias Bernard & company decided that 'progress' means removing functionality and 'breaking' things with every new release. The whole GNOME crew needs their collective asses kicking. HARD!

(Not that I don't think the Gnome look isn't pretty slick nowadays, but I really believe they need to sit down and have a thorough pow-wow with their cohort of third-party developers in order to achieve some common, middle ground. As things stand, the Gnome 'leadership' is currently acting more like a dictatorship ("You will do things this way, or not at all...").....and that's not good for our community.)

I managed to nuke my installation of EndeavourOS through some careless use of terminal commands that affected all files on the entire filesystem, and I have now switched to a distribution that I consider somewhat of an old friend, OpenSUSE Tumbleweed, it was my distro of choice when I took Linux for a 1-week trial run in the past.

Now I share my GNOME desktop with you all. (Font: Roboto, Icons: Newaita).

Hmm... The 15.0 'release candidate 4' looks like 'ORCA'. So, it's a killer whale operating system.

what desktop environment is that? Looks kinda like mint.

Well, it says 'xfce' in the title. So, that might be it. It could also pass for one of the LXD* DEs, like LXDE. But, it does say xfce in the text.

Found an icon-set (Papirus) that covers my needs really well. Short of changing the wallpaper in the future, it is likely that things are final.

15.0 (that's one,five dot zed) RC
Its logo says, 'for the lazy slacker' and should give a hint.
It features the package managers, slapt-get (CLI), synaptic and Gslapt
As well as the 'Flathub' concession to windoze user preference
Am checking it out.

My 'custom' take on Puppy 'Slacko' 5.6.0 - upgraded kernel (k3.4.11 -> k4.1.48); upgraded glibc (2.15 -> 2.20); newer dbus, libstdc++, etc.....and including a few additional programs in the re-mastered 'base' SFS.

Not the newest of my 32-bitzers, but definitely my favourite. 'Slackos' are utterly stable & rock-solid; just downright reliable.

You're probably already sensing something of a theme here! gKrellM is my fave system monitor by a long chalk; I've built packages of the most recent release of Bill Wilson's masterpiece for most of the LTS Puppies over the last few years.

And the wee GIFs here & there just help to liven things up a bit. All have 'hidden', on-screen controls to start, stop & reset if required.

It's a layout I developed some years ago; it's one I like, and the intervening years have just seen steady refinements. I like a 'busy' desktop, I admit; it's not to everyone's taste, but.....it works for me.
