I really don't like gtk3 and I wish they'd either never made it or instead made it 100% backward compatible. One thing I learned when I had a BLFS system was, as bad as gtk3 is, you can't have a system without it.

Anyway, got gkt3 to have the beveled look. It's crude, not as nice as my gtk2 styles, but still an improvement. Here is the strange thing: gtk3 css shares some of the same syntax as html css. This enabled some oddball but convenient code reuse (and thus the 3d bevels).

Still running blackbox, with a style that matches the gtk2 and the gkrelm (and now the gtk3, yay).

@elcore: you were right about the sky blue. I've changed it to the blue that my gtk2 style uses.

p.s. I'd forgotten about qt5ct. Had it on the November Slackware install. Will need to compile it for this one.

jr_bob_dobbs: That looks amazing! It's like an art-project imaging of what an old Unix system might have looked like.

That is really neat! I like the two-tone look. I think I'll switch back to my WindowMaker setup for a time.

The analog clock is easier for a quick time check than either of the digital clocks. It may appear redundant, but it's convenient.

And it's not Conky, it's GKrellM with the "Glass" theme.

Big updates over the last few days. Added multilib and Steam, added slackpkg+, upgraded kernel to 4.19.58 and applied all other updates.

I've been ill over the last week and the beginning of the week was absolute hell. Recovering now and I can start getting other stuff done. At least I discovered Creeper World 3.

Also I've come to the realisation that my new laptop is actually faster than my desktop [i5-6300U vs Q8400]. Weird times.

Care to post that most current one iteration of the GTX3 style?

Slackware -current user on desktop with two monitors, using Openbox with KDE applications.

I use conky to avoid having a system tray for time and date. That way I can view all the system tray info, while also having system data and a simple planner! I don't currently use anything with applets. I also have and use dmenu, but didn't take a screenshot of it. I've been an Openbox user since 2015 or so, and have slowly been making my setups simpler and simpler as time goes on. My ram usage is high in this pic because I have music and Firefox open on another virtual desktop. On an average day my ram usage hovers around the 300-400 mb range.

The image relates to Star Trek: The Next Generation. The first two seasons are kind of "lame". There is a documentary about TNG which explains what was going on behind the scenes and why the first two seasons turned out the way they did.

After doing a bit of reading it turns out TNG and DS9 are far and away considered the best. Apparently it's possible to even skip the first two seasons of TNG.

The first season (Captain Kirk was the best of the best) was the best. I tried watching season 2-infinity and got bored with them fast. Maybe I'm just old?

The Orville, now that's funny.
