Debian Desktops ?


ok, I have recently switched back from gnome to kde since kde4 appears to me as the lesser evil compared to gnome3 though gnome is usually better supported in debian.

I have tried a lot of desktops over the years, from enlightenment over fluxbox to xfce, but have always come back to one of the "bloated" desktops, because there's always something missing that hinders a good workflow. Though not fancy, here's a screenshot.

Right now i'm not using it but when i am it's Debian + Fluxbox or LXDE(saves pain from downloading big DE also from netinstall) and to be honest there is nothing you can't "fix" from there(to be same like in bloated) using Synaptic, software center(same like ubuntu without ubuntu word) or apt-get-install (terminal) or web browser downloads+guides.

Wheezy + kde from experimental w/ iceweasel from experimental.

I also almost always use a "bloated" DE. I'm not a fan of any of the WM's, don't like XFCE, and don't like Gnome. I do like LXDE some, but not enough to switch over to it. But none of my machines have an issue with running it and running it well, so I don't mind.

My sisters machine has LXDE on Debian wheezy though. It's old enough that KDE wasn't smooth.

Debian Squeeze + Openbox/LXDE + Conky (which needs more fiddling with!)

EDIT: made a change to Conky by nabbing and fiddling with a config file found in the Slackware desktops thread.

Here's mine, using Debian Wheezy with KDE. The plasma theme is T-remix. The background was downloaded from here.

Thought i'd say, i find it interesting that Debians default desktop environment is gnome, but there's yet to be a gnome participant.
Here's mine!, Debian Squeeze stable: default kde 4.4.5: Backports 2.6.39 kernel.

p.s.
how do i make my post display a thumnail?

Always assumed that Gnome was dull, but then discovered, just the other day, compiz and 2011 Enzo Life Sciences, Inc. Not for use in humans. Sorry: gconf-editor then /apps/compiz/plugins/decoration/allscreens/options/ for the drop shadows.

I guess it was to 'fruity' for imageshack, it appears they removed your pic.
