That's just an image, where's the OS?
so, someone came up to me and said "I love the Mint Dark theme so much"
Well... Mint-Y-Dark + Mint-Y-Grey Icons + Ubuntu fonts on Manjaro anyone?
(Terminal font is Inconsolata, that will never change for me)
Prepare for disappointment again.
Not much has changed compared to last January when I showed how my desktop looked like.
- Theme switched recently to Mint-Y Darker Teal, which is pretty close to the new defaults @oberon is experimenting with on his Cinnamon edition (except that I use a Darker variant instead of the Dark one). For people interested in that theme, install the
mint-themespackage with your favorite package manager.
- I adopted the Grouped Window List even if I ended up using it as a classic Window List.
- Larger panel, feels better to use on large monitors.
Well, it is still the classical normie desktop we all know, à la Windows if I can say so.
(Don't ask why I have three freakin' browsers.)
I love your wallpaper! Can I have a link?
I like it. I spent the morning between naps (I have a cold) trying to customize the Cinnamon desktop on the live stick (yeah I know it won't stick, but trying it out). I like it, it feels like an odd mix between say 1/3 Windows XP, 1/3 Xfce and 1/3 Gnome. Took me 10 minutes how to figure out how to move to the grouped Windows...
You can somehow tell it's a Gnome fork still; something with how everything moves and feels is very Gnome 3. But I guess there's a Mutter fork in the bottom of it. Not a bad thing, just observing.
I am trying to decide if I should do a separete install with Cinnamon (I am moving from Gnome 3 to either Xfce or Cinnamon; never used Cinnamon actually.
Well, I think Mint devs didn't inherently dislike Gnome 3 totally, they just didn't like the new interface and the loss of some functionality back several years ago. They first started with an extension on top of Gnome 3 called MGSE (Mint Gnome Shell Extension), and ended up forking Gnome 3 entirely to create Cinnamon, and Nautilus to create Nemo, etc.
Yup. The window manager is called Muffin and it is a fork of Mutter.
I have now played with Cinnamon all weekend. I will do a dual install (separate roots) with Xfce this week. I REALLY can't decide between them.

But it is currently out of service.
I share it with you: https://pasteboard.co/IgyF5Pd.jpg
Thank you so much, that was very kind of you ^^
Here is a work in progress - playing with polybar on my wirtual machine (heavily inspired by @frost's screenshots here ).
I am currently strugling with proper colors. I try to take them from default .Xresources with added transparency but somehow I am not satisfied.
Also, since the polybar doesn't show too much info I use some scripts to send more of it to notify-send.
Not many changes since last month.
Came across this little gem while looking for a file manager to use in i3wm. For windows 98 fans only
oh, and i'm a traitor now.
Nothing to show yet.
This is what Cinnamon 18.0 looks like directly switched to Testing branch and then updated after install.
that wallpaper is adorable
I want a light (as in the color scheme) desktop this time, but so far it's not happening.
Just threw this together tonight and it looks basically identical to my Xfce desktop.

edit: Fonts are Fira all around. I really like it, Mozilla did a good job on them.
I have two terminal emulators installed. Got rid of Gnome-Terminal.
Visible here, both as Dropdown (F12) and standalone is Xfce4-terminal. I also installed Tilix in case I need to spend some time in the terminal doing serious work, but it's not default nor in either picture.
And here is my Xfce setup.

Fonts are Fira all around. I really like it, Mozilla did a good job on them (yes I have even told Chromium to use Fira fonts).
