I will also say that we're probably going to revamp notifications again in 3.14. There's lots of issues we want to fix, and a redesign has been going on for at least a year.

hi, add win+# shortcuts to launch favorited activities, its the only thing in unity that scores a victory over gnome

there was an addon which did this but it broke like a year ago due to your apparently unstable api and nobody has bothered fixing it

also why does getting the bottom bar to display require slamming my cursor against the bottom of the screen 4 times

and why does right clicking a systray icon cause the bottom bar to hide again. while im obv the only person in the world who actually uses linux steam or linux dropbox it still seems kinda shortsighted???

Can you not move around the windows on a panel in gnome3, or is that just me? It'd be great if I could just drag whatever app and move it left or right of whatever else is open. I can do that fine in gnome2.

Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts tab -> Windows section -> "Move Window", defaults to Alt+F7 here

Or you could try the Ubuntu thing and rebrand every release.


Although this has the downside of about 30% of the posts about Ubuntu consisting of random alliterative release name "suggestions"

i wish everyone just ignored the name and used the version number everywhere

also debian is good despite the committee stuff

i think it has a side benefit of giving an outlet to the fishmechs that insulates them from the real work

the systemd stuff was pretty hilarious tho, was worried they were gonna make the wrong decision to support bsd debians or whatever other pet projects

i use linux all over and its aight, i first got the hang of it w/ gentoo 1.4 whenever that had just come out (2002ish idk), which i wouldnt recommend (esp not now that its dead) but it was p good as a crash course on figuring out what poo poo was. knowing a linux is also v useful for employment purposes

this screenshot is from july of 2000. by the standards of the day that was pretty sharp-lookin'

for comparison check out the eye-searing horror of Mac OS X in y2k. it makes kde 2.x look good. none of the icons match. background colors are different in every window etc



i was actually sorta serious; i unironically think win2000 was by far the best looking windows

if you have to suffer a linux, pleas use xfce




goddamn those icons though

just use tango iconset obv

i use thunar (xfce's filemanager) in gnome3 because nautilus specifically continues to be used as a personal playground for babies who arent interested in filemanagers being useful tools

hmmz maybe ill give xfce a looksie if only because systray icons (eg google-musicmanager, spideroak, steam) are still designed to be very annoying in gnome3

So I installed the Suse Linux on my computer. I use Gnome. KDE is faster but looks like cluttered poo poo.


Pro:
- Looks okay once you edit the fonts and reactivate the window buttons
- usability is okay
- installed my computing and editor stuff very quickly
- relatively stable
- two finger scrolling works perfectly out of the box

Contra:
- Can not play mp3s or mkvs - LOL. Finding and installing codecs features in the media players does not work. Installing external codec bundle only works for two of the seven or so media players I installed. Welcome to 1990
- Once you pull the bluetooth bundle (audio) and plug it back in, you have to restart the machine to make bluetooth work again. Holy moly
- some piece of poo poo programs randomly do not work and require a parallel "make" type install because they refuse to work with this or that default package. Like if you have the audacity to set python3 as default then half the poo poo doesn't work anymore. Good!
- Gnome is actually really terrible if you think about it, why do I have to click on "Activities" and get this slow rear end poo poo menu to switch to any programs. And then you have this concept of using different "screens", but alt-tab doesn't integrate in this at all. Great!
- Gnome is much slower than KDE, when the gently caress did this happen?
- Scrolling in the activities menu is by default unusable because it scrolls three times as fast as any other scrolling in Gnome. I mean it's just an integral part of the UI, why bother making it work, right?
- The poo poo you need to go through to add an icon to the activities menu shows that Linux will never be a desktop OS. Well you can install this app of course, but out of the box it's either "don't do it" or "try a lot of console poo poo"
- The login screen crashes often
- Lol if you try to mount a Windows 8 hard drive, because you can only do it read only, the onboard tools of Gnome will of course just fail without comment, as is customary
- Double clicking on a file in the file manager to open a program works half of the time, often just nothing happens
- By default the standard programs like the video player, music player or viewers are able to display exactly zero percent of my files because they are not encoded in some bespoke free-sofrtware format from ten years ago that nobody ever used
- The packages offered by Suse do not include most good programs one would actually use, making this poo poo essentially useless, since you are make-installing half of the things anyway
- The pdf viewer is the biggest sack of poo poo
- Who the gently caress uses a dedicated lovely mail program and why is it integrated in every single thing
Edit: - And it's actually slower than Win8 ?!?!

Yeah overall A+ performance guys, I have no idea why people prefer to use the Apple or the Windows. No idea.

in gnome 3 if you turn on matiral scrolling the lock screen tells you to swipe up but you actually have to swipe down.

and why the gently caress is there no sensitivity setting for two finger scrolling? jfc.

welcome to reenix here is your commandline fix

$ synclient VertScrollDelta=n

mine defaults to 99, lower = faster apparently

good luck getting it to reapply each time you reboot

I wanted them to allow users to install things at their own legal risk. This is what other distributions like Debian do.

did they not get the memo that fluendo forked over money in 2005 and now everyone can have mp3

or did that in reality have onerous strings attached or smth for redistribution - - oh lmao apparently it did
