Quoting: sourpuzYou like bold colours!
Haha, yes, I do! The background changes every fifteen minutes (same as my other machines), so this was just what I had up at the time.

Quoting: sourpuzThat seems like a comfy RaspberryPi,
It feels a whole lot comfier than Raspberry Pi OS to be able to set it up exactly like my other computers, I must admit - I almost regret putting up with it for so long, now!

Quoting: sourpuzI think Xubuntu has always had one of the nicest XFCE themes around.And it's blazing fast, in my experience.
I'm a big fan of it, and it's great on this hardware, too!

For me, there's no reason to use the official distro anymore - and I'm one of those people who even put up with it and learned how to block new apt sources from being added without authorisation, that time a year or two ago when they used a standard update to automatically add and trust a third-party repo without users' permission.

I have PPSSPP with a few games on it.

  • The Lord of the Rings - Aragorn's Quest

  • The Lord of the Rings - Tactics

I don't know if they are good or not but been re-reading various Tolkien books with all the buzz about the show. I don't plan on seeing it but I did have fun 'Shadow of Mordor' while ending it. I also played War of the Ring years ago and loved that.

Redream is the best party gaming things for when my friends are over. So far none of the SP stuff has impressed me enough to keep playing it.

Ty. I actually found it on Wallhaven but I would love to pass coin to the artist. I really like this art.

I just had the whole fleet together for updates and stuff, and I took screenshots while I was at it. Smallest to largest;

EDIT: Disaster! The Xubuntu setup that I sorted out for my Raspberry Pi corrupted a couple of microSD Cards within a few days! I don't have the time or inclination to troubleshoot this at the moment, so for now I've retired the machine from its desktop tasks (I'll find some other job for it) and am now docking my Entroware Orion i5 at my desk as needed. Considering that the UK is expecting blackouts in the winter, it's probably better to be using a machine with an on-board battery and not one that depends on SD Cards, anyway.

I found a lot of great wallpapers here :D

I'm old school, and I like old stuff. This is my main system that I use for work, and more serious stuff. (I don't play many games here... I have a custom Manjaro setup for that)

This is XFCE 4.12.0 from 2015, the last version of it that I liked and there's no reason I can't use it (the parts of it that I use still compile). At the time the only thing ported to GTK+3 was xfce4-panel but it had a --disable-gtk3 option, so this is pure GTK+2 like some of my other favourite applications.

I'm a virtual desktop/workspace user for my workflow. Maximized applications each on their own desktop and I slide around with the mouse and pager (wrap workspaces at screen edge, and focus follows mouse model)

The wallpaper is a screenshot from my Metro Exodus game. "The Volga" level (my favourite).

I call this system "Bollux" but it's a from scratch system maintained by hand.

I don't know what would happen if I use img here (automatic resize or pollute thread with 1920x1080 image?) so I'll just make a clickable link.

This is my custom Manjaro desktop that I use for gaming. (Steam, Lutris)

I like lightweight things, no gnome or plasma for me. Even modern XFCE sickens me. I use Lumina Desktop 1.60 with a specific commit of fluxbox (1d19662c8975e881b4fa6465a8305be3ea5282ee) for the window manager, otherwise bad window and focus behaviour. That's the whole REASON I switched to Lumina, because I was previously using Trinity (TDE) for years, until I started having focus problem with some games, for example taskbar popping up in the middle of games and mouse breaking out etc.

I named it Manjaroo, because it really is both gutted and heavily customized. I have a lot of distro packages as dependencies (too onerous to maintain all of it + lib32), but the main stuff is all custom PKGBUILDs. This is a lot of work, to keep a "good" gaming environment that I don't hate (admittedly, I don't like much).

Some Bomberman 64: The Second Attack! boss-battle fan-art that I like, this time around, depicting Bomberman fighting Ashtarth!

The forum will automatically shrink the image to fit, and then it can be clicked to view it at full-size.
