Welcome to /rice/, for all your desktop and phone ricing needs! Rules are at 8ch.net/rice/rules.html, see pic related for settings.

>What is ricing?

Ricing is the art of making your desktop/phone look pretty my installing software (rainmeter, another WM or DE, etc…) and modifying configuration files.

Why is 90% of ricing I see some WM or minimal desktop?

Where's all the fun of some insane 3D desktop or Win XP ricing?

>inb4 it's impratical

I use i3-gaps, urxvt, ect, ect, yadda yadda. It's nothing you've never seen before. It all looks the same. Where's the truly original stuff?

 No.663

Minimal ricing requires little effort, that's why there are tons of screenshots of tilers with some taskbar from github. In order to rice at next level more effort is required. Developing custom themes is not easy when you have to do same shit for 10 different GUI frameworks and even then things look like shit and broken. Gnome/GTK devs are to be blamed for this: Oy Vey your GTK+ 3.16 theme is not compatiple with GTK+ 3.20, just rewrite it goy, we changed shit again, because we have nothing better to do. This happens every 6 months, so your theme is basically worthless then if you update shit. What you're left with is default Adwaita mobile phone theme that looks like shit. The best course of action is probably to abandon everything that uses GTK, if you want to rice.

>3D desktop

What do you mean?

>>663

Pretty much bang on. It's pretty easy to change the wallpaper, terminal colours, font and a bar, open a few terminals and maybe a picture and take a screenshot. It's hard to make everything like GTKs, icon sets and other stuff to match.

I prefer openbox or ratpoison, stumpwm is ok. The less GUI the better, getting rid of window borders is a big deal for helping me focus, I also use surf so I don’t have tabs in the way. Conky is nice for displaying the time but that’s really it.

Allow me to recommend something wildly different: Smart Launcher.

It simplifies your main screen to display only the most important apps, and puts everything else into category trays. It just makes perfect sense. I've tried many launchers, and I always came back to it. It also has a lot of themes available.

life must be hell for ya kek

jokes aside this looks like a *really* good rice; simple, not too colorful, and overall rad

as far as sprucing goes, i guess you can try decreasing the saturation of your colors? but that's not really too important, so whatever
