Ubuntu Mate HightContastInverse but orange instead of white.

I've been trying to make a fairly modest sounding rice of my laptop for a while now. Black background and orange text. Minimal blue light, pretty legible, not too ugly.

I started by getting a Stylish dark theme and making the text color orange. Then I tried editing the HighContrastInverse theme by taking everything that was "white" #fff and #ffffff, & making it "orange" and #ff7f00.

That made things like the password thingy when launching chrome, the thing that drops down to show you networks you are connected to from the panel, and the buttons that get highlighted when selecting where to save a file orange.

Everything else is still white. How do I go fully orang?

Redpill me on status bars

I've been using i3 for quite a while now, and I've riced a lot of it already.

One thing I've never bothered looking into, though, is the status bar. I've been fine with the default i3bar and i3status, and it's just kind of been "there" for me to click on the workspace numbers and the xembed icons whenever I feel like it.

I feel the need to rice it, but I'm not sure what to use for it. I've seen i3bar replacements such as lemonbar and polybar, as well as i3status replacements such as i3blocks.

I'm looking for something as easy to configure as i3, that looks great, without much necessary tinkering besides the colors and shortcuts. It'd also be nice if it'd show me the name of the active application in each workspace.

Share your comfy bar setups for any wm, and preferably explain how you integrate them in your workflow, so it isn't just "there", being a nuisance.

I was setting up a gtk theme for the gentoo build I'll be migrating to. I based it off of Arc-Dark theme and decided it was too bright for me. I redid a bunch of assets from gtk-2, but alot of the assets from gtk-3 is untouched. How the hell do I get rid of that #404552 block and the scroll bars that seems to be linked to the gtk-3.0 theme?

Rice and WinMod Bundle Package

Supyo, was wondering if anyone wants to get in on making this rice pack with me. So far I have a bunch of GUI mods and system mods for Win7 that make it look and function more like Linux. I also have a batch file that auto-installs a lot of it. Is there any software you guys think I'm missing? Does anyone wanna help with the auto-installer (possibly make a C++ executable for it)?

When this is done, it's supposed to be a click-and-go full Windows optimization and GUI/functionality overhaul. Let me know what you guys think.

How do I into desktop?

This is going to sound weird /rice/, but how can I see my desktop more? I want to be able to see those damn pretty wallpapers I got! Pretty much all of what I do is either directly in the terminal or in a browser, so my set-up is pretty much:

>Terminal/IceCat automatically open at startup

>They're both set to solarized color schemes.

>The terminal via a zshrc solarized theme I copypastad.

>The browser via a style manager add-on.

Pic related, it's what I want to see more of behind this terminal and this browser.

Paranoid Anons /Tech/ Guide V.2 for my bros at /rice/

This is very /tech/ related and has some light /rice/ elements. I wanted to spread this to you so that you would stay informed. I hope this helps you.

Dumping massive /tech/ guide and redpill


following these instructions may severely break your computer and firefox and may ruin your privacy and your entire life.

do any of these things at your own risk.

I am not responsible for anything bad that happens to you.

Some of these things DO mess up your ability to use 8chan and screw up the way the site functions so pick and choose carefully, use saves/different profiles or something.

This may void your warranty.

Ask a professional and the mozilla team before doing anything.

You have been warned.

first open about:config

to protect against SSLv3 exploit you can use the mozilla addon "SSL version control"

or set security.tls.version.min = 1 in about:config for Mozilla Firefox.

To restore change the value back to the security.tls.version.min = 0. That's it.

In Mozilla Thunderbird you can set it also in about:config, which You can find in: Tools → Options → Advanced → General → Config Editor.

Always use a firefox fork that gets regular good security updates. never use a main distribution. the underdogs are your friends.

remember to explore "about:permissions" as well.

(take a break here and read how to fix the internet for everyone)

- install TOR software on EVERY router, complete unfiltered

- force EVERYONE to use PGP, no exceptions

- forbid non open source software in essential parts of using the internet (webbrowser, mail client…)

- build a company which is only there for pen-testing, if something is found, they have to call/mail the website owner and inform him

- build a company which is completly transparent, the only thing they do is build network hardware, everyone has the right to look into their files/production processes to verify there are no backdoors in the hardware

- same for computer manufacturers

- ISPs are forbidden to give "middle traffic speed", but they have to give you a minimum traffic speed for every time
