simple & nice
Looks like you used Polybar.
I’ve actually stripped out almost everything from stock XFCE4 I use Polybar/Rofi and other gems.
Actually i do the same, but different … cool work
It’s actually kinda fun. XFWM gives mou many options to work with if you really get down to it.
Configured properly it’s lighter and faster than openbox (which lacks some features)…
I had a great screen shot over at ArchLabs and I started with xfce and did much the same as you. Added a little color to the icons in the polybar. Spent a little time on it but found it actually running slower that xfce decked to the halls.
My initial thoughts were to have OpenBox on this PC when I got it (about 1 week ago), so I started with openbox but couldn’t get click simulation for touchpad to work no matter what, and my trackpoint wouldn’t work properly (Thinkpad T480). So I opted for XFCE4 for the first couple of days and everything worked perfectly out of the box (had to get everything to work fast so I could use this PC for my day-to-day job). So first chance I got (today), I stripped most parts of XFCE4 out and got a bit into customizing the looks of the desktop Pretty pleased with the result.
It kinda depends for me, some times everything works smoothly no matter what, and other times I forget to close some service (especially Docker) and my PC “feels” kinda heavy, which some times tricks me into believing that the WM/DE is actually heavy, but it never is
I’m another user of a 4:3 screen. I showed my 4:3 Manjaro desktop several months ago, and nothing has changed since then:
I also use a laptop with a 1920x1080 screen, but it displays only 8% more pixels than my 1600x1200 desktop monitor. Unless I’m viewing one or more documents side-by-side, I prefer using my 4:3 desktop monitor instead of my 16:9 laptop screen. I see much more of my document at once, and can edit the document more easily when my screen shows more content vertically.
My 1600x1200 monitor is an NEC MultiSync LCD2070NX. I bought it more than eleven years ago, in October 2007, and it’s still going strong:
My monitor weighs 8.9 kg (19.6 lb) with the stand and 5.7 kg (12.6 lb) without the stand.
Dunno why so many people hate Ubuntu and its derivatives. I think it’s a nice and reliable fallback system which can be used to chroot and restore your broken Manjaro
EDIT: Oh yeah chroot worked, Manjaro is up and running again!
@Librewish lol I know, that was not the question, I was joking about the certain niche for this African tambourine
The freeze updates and an outdated system
WHAT is this music player?!
