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


>2 months ago

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

So, /rice/, I'm looking for inspiration. How's about an android racing thread?

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?

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.


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

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:
