Gentoo 2005.1 and KDE3.5

Posted by Treg in General, Screenshots

Last week I was testing the KDE 3.5 “Window Manager” on my Gentoo 2005.1 box. I’m very surprised, cause this Qt based desktop system disapointed me many times in the past. I managed to use GTK2 styles in GTK2 applications, for example Mozilla Firefox. Also the transparant bottom panel ‘s very nice.
Yesterday, I compiled xorg7.0 with composite extensions, but it won’t work very nice due to my ATI graphics card. I had some problems with Direct Hardware rendering and composite extension enabled.

For the time being, I uploaded a screenshot :p I still use Gentoo 2005.0 as operating system and XFCE 4.2.2 as window manager.

Gentoo 2005.0 with XFCE 4.2.2

A week ago, I decided to use XFCE 4.2 as windowmanager on my Gentoo box. I used it before but for some reason I quitted it (messing things up with gnome I think). For the moment I am quite satisfied with this WM. It works faster as Gnome and the looks are better as KDE. We should see what the future brings 🙂

Actual desktop: Gentoo 2005.0

Time for an actual desktop I thought. For the moment I am (still) using Gentoo 2005.0 with Gnome2.8 (Digital-Harmony theme) and Xorg6.8.2. The system is working perfect!

Ubuntu Linux Hoary Tree / Gnome 2.10

Posted by Treg in Screenshots

It’s amazing that I am still running the same distro with the same installation. The Hoary version of Ubuntu is still in the developement phase and it works great! 🙂
Meanwhile I set up my gdesklets again (version 0.33.1) but some psi sensors aren’t working. They are developping a new set of desklets called SideCandy. This eyecandy doesn’t slow down my system @ all, nice!
