    @shwaybotx I3 requires a learning curve to properly use and configure it, i’d recommend you to install in some VM first and see the 3 parts video from Code Cast and from the great midfingr channels. That’s how i started…

    @shwaybotx i3 requires a lot of reading and try & error. When I started I found it to be a pain in the a**. I mean, it works out of the box, but you definitely have to adjust the .config file to suit your needs. And you have to remember the keyboard shotcuts. But when you dig deeper into it you will start to like it, at least I did. @fernandomaroto suggestions are really good, I personally found the code cast videos by Alex Booker very helpful. And of course the official i3 users guide.

    KDE with Latte Dock. I don’t like image clutter around the screen edges which would interfere with my panels. Also I have my three section justified Latte panels set to 80% length so as not to interfere!) with my left and right upper hot corners which bring up the virtual desktop cube and desktop grid respectively. 0_1492042386629_Screenshot_20170412_201028.png

    One of these days I’m going to go and re-explore Plasma which I haven’t used much. Back when there was KDE only, it was my first DE. I hated Unity, loved Mate which I used for years. Then I became a bit of an XFCE expert and now use Gnome. Of course, I’ve got Plasma installed too. I like keeping the different DE’s around so I can test them out. I’d love to learn more about Plasma. Need to read more up on it. It’s the most popular DE of them all, I’m aware. Just not used to it myself.

    @shwaybotx So far I’ve been more or less able to make it look and act the way I want. What more could I ask for? I do want to install pocketsphinx soon. But I’ll have to wait a bit first. Busy busy.

    @MaCroX95 I like the image. I moved my dock from the bottom to the side because I find I have some problems using the video slider when my dock is on the bottom. The top is okay as long as it doesn’t stretch into the corners. BTW, how do you get the arch theme in your terminal?
