Poll: Which desktop environment are you using ?
« on: 08. August 2013, 13:05:05 »
Hi

Would it be possible to organize a poll to find out which office environments used with Manjaro ?

On the French forum, we have in mind Xfce tracking KDE. Openbox is far behind.

Bien, oui, mais il est francais. He mentioned Xfce, KDE and Openbox so i fugured he really meant desktop environments.

I use Gnome-shell. For sure it is not perfect.
However still it's been more stable than cinnamon ( honest injun).
Sound works out of box unlike KDE( Yeh I was trying hard).
I've bought Haswell recently. And I love Disks because I can stand by my HDD manualy so I have on only HDD I'm using.

@Parmaster :
I have not found how.

@Verändert :
Thank you.

Reactivity impressive  :D

edit :
I asked it to understand (perhaps) to Manjaro it should perhaps be an official ISO KDE to replace Openbox.

I use KDE since I've installed Manjaro on my Desktop Computer. First time directly from the Community ISO, second time from the Net-Edition and after KDE installation based on the great Ewolnux's tutorial.

On the second older computer I've installed XFCE as is lighter in memory use. Since this, my wife is very happy as the Computer is now usable in comparison with the heavy MS Windows XP.
Thanks Manjaro !!!

I love the simplicity of Xfce. You can make it look pretty & tweak the look, but everything is where I want it. With icons for all my apps at the bottom, I hardly ever open the menu. Plus it's light & stable. Each to their own. R.

I tend to lean towards minimalism, so OpenBox is my choice for my computers.  I also out of boredom installed the net edition on my mother-in-laws computer the other day since we are house-sitting for her while she's on vacation.  I decided to try something new so I went with FluxBox.  I still think I prefer OpenBox but I can see why Flux has a devoted fan-base.
