ricing general Anonymous 03/12/2018 (Mon) 04:52:41 [Preview] No. 12459
I want to start using i3-gaps instead of i3. Anyone try i3-gaps? Thinking about using an alternative to dmenu. Wanna jazz it the fuck up but keep it simple without the bells and whistles.

Pic semi-related. Not my cup of tea but an example of alternative icons.
https://www.reddit.com/r/unixporn/ is a great place to find dotfiles and workflows. ignore the laptop sticker cancer.

pic related is a nice setup i saw. Using some obscure wm like 2bwm and a slick polybar configuration.

The problem with the icons is that most alternatives are flat cancer but if you do get a nice theme it clashes badly with other icons installed that don't fit the theme.

I'm currently ricing my windows 10 PC again as I was getting bored with my old one and I wanted to try to streamline my workflow a bit more. What ricing tools does everyone use for windows?

my list:
rain meter
system animator
wallpaper engine

Obligatory generic non reddit spoonfeeding (because OP is a faggot): https://rizonrice.github.io/resources

BTW, i3-gaps is the most overused babby's first ricing WM.

lol, fuck me.

Fuck. I riced to hard guys... no clue which tweak actually did this... working fine now... fuck! Guess I just try to figure out what part of my system is unstable by guessing randomly after th next few crashes. The stop code is Fucking unlisted... also does anyone have a fix for oldNewExplorer not actually updating windows explorer? It up dated the first element and then all the controls quit working. Now even reinstalling it is giving now results. Also, how how likely is it that messing with adding a PATH system variable to MPV's container might have caused that BSoD?

Thank you for that link. I was wondering why I was seeing so many i3 rices and not i3-gaps. That makes sense the github username is airblader the guy seems edgy. But i have been looking at lightweight window managers and on the 2bwm readme they have a neat little chart of the lightest wm's https://github.com/venam/2bwm. Apparently http://hack.org/mc/hacks/mcwm/ is the lightest on RAM.

I Didn't see that rizonrice link in the installgentoo wiki page on ricing which is all I known of. Unfortunatly /r/unixporn is more up to date than the wiki. But I understand the animosity all of this is vanity.

Everything's your fault.

Practicality trumps minimal setup. End/tech/ has no affiliation with any of the links posted here.

I never denied that. ...but i was hoping someone could shed some light on where I most likely fucked up

i3-gaps, practically the same of i3 except for the... gaps.
The .config is totally compatible.
I've got a nice setup before I get bored of it, now I'm trying awesome wm and I've to say that's very good. If you know lua and if you know C you basically already know it you can do everything. Literally.

So KDE was bullshit all along? They made me think it was going to be the future of linux. Still it crashes like hell and too much compositing. Literally Nintendo Gamecube level graphics.
