I’m big fan of WMs, at now herbstluftwm. I hate KDE, GNOME, XFCE but like LXQT the lightest DE.
eh xfce and lxqt have pretty much the same memory usage minus maybe 2 megs.
I started out in Void with Mate and had a hellish time trying to get cinnamon going. Apparently the secret was the dm: I’ve now switched to sddm instead of lxdm. I had tried xdm and slim, but those didn’t help.
I feel the same way now. I don’t really need a full DE.
ATM it’s Cinnamon, tinkering with MATE in a VM.
dwm for a while now.
Maybe one of my best idea in my life
At the moment, i’m happy with herbstluft but that may change.
i also like xfce from time to time or even tmux if that counts
JWM. Perfect WM for anyone that want to keep it simple without getting into tiling.
I’m using XFCE.
i3wm. About to replace all my Debian instances with Void and/or a BSD still with i3.
Cwm as my backup WM (I believe it is the smallest WM out there, very simple too). I usually work with spectrwm, which just feels and works like i3-gapps but… With more quality(?) It just feels better.
I soon may also use IceWM. I like the old feel of it, anyone can use it if I hand them my computer and (finally) the developed version of IceWM has been put in the repos
I used dwm a lot back in the days, moved to i3 some years ago and never changed.
Openbox standalone & Mate
JWM + tint2+ conky/lemonbar and idesk.
@lancs Could you post your dotfiles and your configuration? I’m trying to make a light weight desktop for my elderly parents.
I3 gaps with i3blocks
I have settled on xfce + compiz.
I know compiz not long for this world, but I so love wobbly windows and fire!
