Give a valid reason why you're not using MATE for it surely is the best desktop graphical environment ever created.
>Wouldn't use it on my laptop, it's too heavy.
MATE only uses ~15 MB more than XFCE
You're not going to get much less memory usage unless you're one of those tiling WM ricing spergs
Not OP, but I just installed it in virtualbox, so I'll tell you. It's the stock theme included with Ubuntu MATE, and yes, it's a modified version of Ambiance made to work with MATE
Do you want me to upload it to pomf.se for you?
That would be very kind of you.
I'm running Arch so I strongly doubt when I install it that it'll come with Ambiance.
Ambiance is like the best theme, if it works then I'll switch from XFCE to MATE.
I think that's everything, but tell me if I forgot to upload something
Just a heads up though, the stock theme that Ubuntu-MATE comes with is sort of an ugly-greenish one.
Cinnamon has the best window management that I know of. It's really useful to be able to place windows on a grid with hot keys. It's like the best of both worlds with respect to fixed windows managers like awesome
Same here, 1280x800 display on my laptop (hoping to get a 1440x900 panel if I can get one reasonably priced at some point), and having the dual toolbars is a bit irritating. I can handle just the one at the top without issues, but the one on the bottom is irrelevant I suppose. In Windows 7 (my primary OS) I keep the Taskbar on the left side of the screen - I mean, with "widescreen" displays, that's pretty much where it should be logically (meaning the sides of the display/desktop).
Guess I need to look into some dock solution for Ubuntu MATE 14.04 LTS (my distro of choice, first one in 20+ years of Linux experimentation that works flawlessly, not one single issue of any kind since I installed it which is god damned amazing).
1440x900 would be like a big jump for me nowadays, guess I really should hit up eBay and check out the pricing and finally get one.
here's a webm of how to get rid of the disgusting green and replace it with the ubuntu orange
It's gross, I doubt you'll like it
I think it comes included with MATE on Arch though, so you can test it out yourself
Try Plank if you're looking for a dock
Alright, here's a webm of how to change from the MATE green to the Ubuntu orange
The theme I'm using at the beginning is BlackMATE
Download the files from >>45618964, extract them to their respective locations, install ubuntu-mono from the AUR, and then follow the instructions in the uploaded webm
It should have an Ubuntu 10.10-like feel to it
Sorry for the webm quality, I had to try to keep it within moot's filesize restrictions
>works well, tested and lots of documentation and troubleshooting information available
>buggy, doesn't work well and sends you off googling for hours of troubleshooting which could lead to nowhere
>you should totally use this, it's actively developed m8
Is there any DE that doesn't look like shit? There's no attention to detail at all. Windows and OS X are leagues ahead.
