Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

but slows down a bit after a few hours of works due to swap usages of hdd.

I use Zram instead of regular swap, Even after two weeks of uptime, I do not feel slow speed! 🤷🏻♂️

I would be interested to know which path you followed to install your GNOME without shell?

I installed the GNOME shell, but with an extension I hide the parts I did not like! That means everything! I do not like panels! I want to see the wallpaper well! No more!

Very fine achievement anyway

Thanks! I just installed these packages after installing Devuan minimally:

gnome-{seasion,terminal,tweaks} epiphany-browser mpv nautilus vim zram-tools & neofetch for this screenshot just now!

At least I remember these packages, And it only took up 3.3 GB of space! So I only gave 5 GB to the root partition!
( Can Mutter be installed alone and work well as a window manager? Interesting! )

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Thanks for sharing the zram parts, I will start researching and using it as it does not come out anything good with swap alone when it comes to low resources hardware.

Yes, you can use mutter alone, but better have it with tint2 because doesn't come with panel and don't have shortcuts for launch stuff.

This is how i started mutter from .xinitrc

if which dbus-launch >/dev/null && test -z "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS"; then
    eval "$(dbus-launch --auto-syntax --exit-with-session)"
fi

xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
tint2 &
exec mutter

dconf-editor tool helps to set cursors, themes, icons and other mutter features instantly.

I have done very recently the unorthodox way by installing only mutter with tint2 just for the testing sake. It was awesome experience.

Very interesting and original solution. I thought it was used for debugging. Maybe I'll have to try it someday.

Yeah go for it, It can safety used as a single WM. For mouse enthusiasts, Wayland display server and X11 window manager, compositor standalone, smooth and very minimalistic WM. Overall just a fine couples with tint2.

I did not notice any concern on my tests, even on my old Core 2 Duo 8600 liked it despite significant lack of basic configurations Openbox/Fluxbox that have, it is a pretty simple Wayland display server another worth reason to check it.

BR!

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

XFCE
52129294364_cf76ff873c_m.jpg

Haven't used a DE on many years to my old Core2 Duo. I made a check yesterday to XFCE following Devuan Minimal XFCE install
I installed the whole first part, and xfce4-appfinder from 2nd part.
The rest of adds from XFCE i don't need it, mostly have it from gnome apps or selective independent tools.

This is really bare-bone 330MB, well suited for old desktops.

Used Orchis-theme / Tela-icon / Bibata-cursor / Joe(s) Motohashi(c) background. I will keep this until it works.

I've deleted Windows. Thank fuck. What a *terrible* operating system — I could only use the AMDGPU-PRO drivers for my card and they gave a worse frame rate than amdgpu and ran the card at least 20°C hotter. And there's no PRIMARY selection mechanism, which was even more irritating. Edge scrolling for the touchpad is also now impossible in Windows unless you write your own driver. Wtf?


To obtain a root shell use su -. Using just su will result in "command not found" messages.

Devuan (Testing)
52167751361_0eccf72943_m.jpg

Completion of XFCE4 continues, so far i have set system sounds, notifications, gvfs to boost trash, SMB volumes and storage supports, pulseaudio to adapt Firefox Nightly sounds, exchanged some standalone applications with XFCE apps.
Last but not least Zram enabled.

Credits

Orchis-theme | Tela-icon-theme | Bibata_Cursor | Enchanted-Complete-System-Sounds | IBM-plex-fonts | ZRam
As usual thanks to Joe Motohashi for the backgrounds that is used as auto change from XFCE Desktop settings.
