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.

What's the objectively best WM/DE?

Xmonad is one rarely suggested, but in my opinion is very useful



I like how that is the biggest complain about openbox.




>It's lightweight, no bloat

>It just werks



fvwm, xmonad



WM/DEs are bloat. Use tmux on tty.

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?

real rice coming through


why over-rice your desktop when you could be browsing content with some app. transitions are LITERARLLY retarded for anything but presentation. At the "end of the day" eye candy (like desktop cube, wobbly windows, even fading..etc) ends up being time consuming and repetitive while minimal+functional turns out to be as pretty as it needs to be. Dont forget, you're interested in what a window contains, not anything inbetween (unless it is functional like tabs, for example)


those aren't really 3D desktops, they just use 3Dish graphics in the transitions. imagine if instead your GUI was a small 3D world that is a nice apartment with all the trappings: bedrooms, bathrooms, a home-office, any other room you might like. ebooks that look like physical books on physical bookshelves or strewn about the coffee table of your living room, email in physical-like envelopes, where unread mail is in a sealed envelope, and read mail is in a torn open envelope, documents in those hanging folders in physical-like drawers with physical-like locks and physical-like keys (though requiring very real passwords to decrypt). think of what a nice looking 3D GUI would look like, use you imagination. maybe someone will have the ability to create it, a sufficiently powerful computer to run it, and the fancy to want it.

What do you think of my arch rice?


looks fake


i like it and i like the art you have on your website.

if i was rude, i would say you would make a great glassblower, there's lots of DUDE WEED pipes made with weird eyes and forms.

if i wanted to be nice i would say you have an interesting take on UI, that it's fun to watch, but im a minimal person(ie i fullscreen everything), to me, art is the content, not everything else.


This sort of thing could at least mildly interest some folks on halfchan /gd/, because from time to time it's a good thing to take humorous stance on things that are typically taken for granted or even may be stagnated, which in this case is OS GUI.


nice, except for the eyes. makes the OS feel like a game

ayee, Solarized is where it's at.

don't have that patience for rewriting entire browser ui stylesheet knowing it may change drastically any release from now.

was thinking of some sort of ultimo stylesheet&userscript thing for web to toggle that with use of css/svg filter would properly recolor all the websites in the vein of zathura pdf reader, with exception for image and video elements (which would make it complicated likely).

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.



Why are you using android?

How good does my rice look? Is there anything I could potentially do to spruce it up?



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
