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.

>You look similar to me. You look like a faggot.

It's even more minimal now and potentially less similar to you, self declared faggot.

>fuck you for your retarded snapchat or whatever the fuck you're doing for attention from others.

the selfie isn't me, it's some faggot I know. It agitates him when I screenshot his posts so I do it every time.



this is me, posted the scrot from my phone


Looks good, especially the musical taste. Only thing I would change is the color/background/placement of the dock bar, it's hard to see and doesn't really seem like it belongs. That's just my thoughts, though.

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?

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?

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 always used py3status, easy to use and just werks

Before I switched to dwm, I used i3-gaps with polybar. It's quite a nice bar alright, can be extended with shell scripts, and of course, setting colours, fonts, icons, and even bar transparency is possible. Here's a pic of that setup.

Stop using any kind of bar and reap le benefits:

fix the font fam




hide your scroll bar:

edit>profile preferences>scrolling

check out the other tabs in that preferences menu - edit your font, change colours to light on dark to match your colour scheme, hide the menu bar (for terminal)

fantasquesans mono and terminus are good fonts

I'm not super happy with the color scheme, it sometimes looks more like shit-brown rather than sunset orange, and the equivalent for "red" in the terminal colors is often unreadable.

I suck at colors, how do I git gud?



Change the bar colors to be the same as youe terminal colors. Could also remove that urxvt scroll bar but that's just my preference.

Another thing to look into is custom CSS for your web browser. You can setup sites you frequent to use the same (or similar) color scheme as your terminal, bar and windows.



you need a new os and a different laptop. also dejavu is shit i recomend terminus. as for laptop go for an T60 or X60 if you need something newer and don't mind hardware flashing get a a Tx00 or Xx00

this. i'm currently using i3



kde set up to look like xp


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.

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

Background looks a bit boring, I'd atleast put an animu girl on there

I offer this ultra rare pepe in exchange for your help

Not without installing a different OS, and that's an amazon botnet tier pepe. You can fucking find it by googling 'rare pepe'. Have a truly rare pepe.

They have Python 2.5 IIRC.



Yes, but they hate it. Python is there because hg depends on it and Google Code requires hg. It will be removed since GC is dead.


what are the pros?

I only see cons



note that you can do alot more a lot better with rc on plan9 than you can with sh/etc on unix, as a result of better design and os abstractions.


Sure, it's an OS sponsored by Cirno with ironic memesters behind it, but hardware support must be terrible. And it's awful for ricing. You could set up a wallpaper and other fonts, but little more. Everything else has to be written for it.

how do you decide your color layout in Xresources? i currently have this and it works well for most things, but when i go onto my mounted drive it just goes full puke. feels terrible. i might have to mess with this a bit more, but would cause this?


ls might be the culprit. I used to get that puke color in ls too. Try something other than that to test the colors.


Lookup "solarized," it is an engineered color scheme.


Just go to terminal.sexy



look up "bad dragon", it's an egineered phallic object for faggots like yourself
