Uncomment the [community] repo in /etc/pacman.conf, and "pacman -Sy pypanel"

Re: Your favorite DE/WM?

Right now I'm using PekWM + Gnome... Nice, although they play a little weirdly together (for example, you're stuck one of those four-arrow "window moving" cursors on startup for about 15 seconds, and it stays around if you don't bring up the PekWM menu). I do have to say that using a window manager other than Metacity vastly improves application startup speeds, for some reason. roll

Re: Your favorite DE/WM?

I dunno, I just switched back to OBGnome.

(This new version of Gnome doesn't play nice with alternative window managers, it seems they gave half the keybinding stuff to Metacity and half to the settings daemon. I can call up Nautilus with ctrl-alt-space, but not a terminal with ctrl-alt-return or the screensaver with ctrl-alt-l...)

Re: Your favorite DE/WM?

I've been using KDE for a while now (since the 3.4RC series) and it seems to be serving me quite well. Has a lot of these nice but not so visible features, which you come across when you start investigating it.

The only problems I have with KDE concern its graphics - I can't find many good and complete icon themes (if you know some, please tell me), and also there's a lot of flickering, which is caused from Qt as far as I know. So I have high hopes for KDE 4.

Fluxbox here.

I used blackbox before, but the lack of xinerama support became too annoying. Fluxbox does everything I want, and it does it good.

Re: Your favorite DE/WM?

My turn!
I see a couple people here are RP fans - awesome.  I have one or two gripes when it comes to shitty apps, but in general I have been using RP for 1.5 years now.  I can't use anything else anymore....
But all-in-all, my favorite window manager of all time is GNU Screen.

Re: Your favorite DE/WM?

I've always used KDE. When I first tried Linux I thought that Gnome was the better looking of all the DE but when I saw it for myself I didn't like completely. There is always a feeling of desktop-penandpaper on it, can't explain exactly, I preferred Kde because it looked more "modern" to me, and it does still now.

Another very good one is OpenBox, but I can't live without konqueror as file manager and if I have to load konqueror whenever I login then....why don't load the whole kde? Openbox is nice, fast and "modern" but for me there isn't a real alternative to konqueror as file manager (don't say terminal or mc  big_smile )

1. i don't like gnome in /opt/* (i did rm -rf /opt few month ago)
2. i like /home/<user_account>/*
3. less problem, more control to me.
4. gnome upgrade timing is mine, not arch repo.
5. i can enjoy it(aka my own), in arch repo, i can only get some tension.
6. a little different config option (--configure --enable --disable-stuff)
7. i have no worry about dependency of gnome, and it's update-ness.

PS:
cons: installing garnome is time-consuming job(5~6 hours if it goes well)..

Too much Gnome-like for my tastes  :?
But it's a good one, I have to agree

Re: Your favorite DE/WM?

Openbox is awesome.

I use it with gnome. Its sorta like OBGnome. That way I can use little things I love about Gnome in my OB setup.

However now that I have a newer and faster laptop I might just use Gnome.
