I don't really like docks personally. They're too bulky for some simple app shortcuts imo. While I do tend to launch many apps via a runner or terminal, I do tend to use a tasklist - either tint2 with openbox, xfce panel with xfce, or awesome's built in panel with awesome.

Yes! I've been using Windows 7 again lately and I find myself wishing that I could get rid of this taskbar. rolleyes.gif

I happen to use a dock at the moment, though mine is a little more elaborate I'll post a screenshot when I get home depicting it better than I usually do. I admit though that I use it far less than my runner and compiz application switchers

Ubuntu 12.04. Resizing windows is laggy as hell. I'm missing a half decent file manager (no excuse for the one they've enabled by default), the shelf smartly rearranging itself, safe removal of USB drives, the connection manager (this should have been in the packages) and more.

I'm thinking of going to KDE again. It's good-looking and powerful. Though being a non-GTK DE I feel my habits are going to change, which makes me question the potential decision.

How do you resize windows? By dragging them? I didn't notice it being laggy in 12.10 but I will say that some windows you couldn't resize (dialogue ones) and other times the GUI signals that you could start resizing a window weren't clear but I'm thinking that might be a theme related issue. Their default file manager is pretty brand new so I'll give it time to mature or just stick to PCmanFM or Dolphin. Shelfs and taskbars have been a pain for me in any DE so I just kind of ignored it; but I guess it is a bit more annoying than the others. Didn't notice the problem with USB outside of when I first used E17 (before a reboot). I honestly don't know why the hell the buntu packagers didn't include the dependencies for the connection manager but that's not a E17 issue that's the PPA guys. Like I warned earlier and so does everyone else...if you want to experience what E17 is really capable of then you need to use Bodhi. Otherwise you just get the bare minimal to function packages (which usually means you'll need some pieces from your other DE). On side note...for some reason the first time E17 starts up whether with compositing enabled or not it does use more RAM and is slower than any other time you use it after. Also tends to crash a lot in a live disc image for some reason.

Out of curiosity why are you sticking to 12.04?

(PS: I fear my tone is going to sound annoyed or something but I'm just talking with you not trying to correct or anything. And I'm making this note because for some reason people on the net think I'm angry and mean.) redface.gif

What's going to change?


@Shrak: WHAT!? You mean you use a dock? My mental image of you has just changed. tongue.gif

@stolid: Never used tasklists before...what do they look like?

@Teacup: Not sure if trolling or serious....but the only good thing from Win7's taskbar besides combining shortcuts with open applications and not wasting space was the fact that you could use WIN/SUPER/META+ a number key and launch something. That is faster than typing out even one letter for a runner/terminal but switching windows in Windows is so obtuse as it's still mostly alt+tab based cycling which is so slow.

@xaero: I'm curious to see the awesomeness of your dock. I used one in E17 on Bodhi and while it was pretty much identical to the OSX style it just seemed pointless when there is the "Everything" launcher/runner. Never found one that worked well for KDE though there were many for GTK DEs.

I'm just seeing if I like it. The last time I had one in mint 12 I uses it alot, but now days I mostly just use dmenu/ program hotkeys in rc.xml (which reminds me, I got dmenu working in openbox) or in full DEs either the runner or in ones that have it the systemkey to menu then type thing. The dock looks pretty good but ATM i'm not using it much, Will have to leave it for a bit and think about it.

Also, I've gone back to windows being decorated by default in openbox, and then naming the couple programs I do want always undecorated (as for now just urxvt and gimp) in rc.xml.

The simplicity of rc.xml is awesome. Openbox is definitely my favorite floating WM

I use docks as panels when I use Compiz Standalone, and a few other WM's tongue.gif

You get more functionality out of them than most standard panels, one less thing for me to hack into the other panels.

What difference does it make whether the desktop environment is Qt or GTK?

They all function the same. It's only really a developer issue
