Lots of KDE I see.

Primarily I use Ubuntu, mostly because I'm too lazy to bother with anything else, as it installs easy. I do nuke out that unity crap in favor of Gnome. It just runs smoother on some of the machines I run it on.

I ended up just moving my .e directory rather than removing it. The I used Openbox for a bit, felt just a little crippled, and moved my .e directory back. Now it works again just fine blinksmiley.gif

Eh...outside of Bodhi; Enlightenment always broke for some reason or another. I like E17 a lot but KDE still holds my top spot.

post #5385 of 7733
tried mint 15 cinnamon and its annoying the hell out of me. It crashes all too easy with no quick recover. Perhaps its the AMD drivers, but other than running an AMD card i have a vanilla install. I could write a list of about 20 things in the space of a few hours that make the desktop crash .. if you tweak things like panel size, or if you drag a new firefox tab to expo it completely nukes the desktop. Its a shame as there clearly has been a ton of progress and the themes, desklets and other niceties make the environment look better than seen any desktop o/s look including mac.

so back to xfce or KDE. KDE occasionally flips out but its rare and it always recovers. xcfe, well it takes some more time to make it look nice ( 10 mins as opposed to 5 mins redface.gif) but you get a stable experience. The only thing i miss on xfce is some 'slight' effects like sliding windows and expo mode which compiz covers i guess.

I guess I've been lucky because I have yet to make Cinnamon crash, despite extensively messing around with it. tongue.gif

 

From a productivity point of view, no desktop environment comes close to KDE, for me. The only desktop I really can't stand is vanilla Gnome 3.

i think i can make it crash for you, id be interested actually whether this makes it crash or not.

step1: put the hotcorner icon in the top left hand corner (figure of 8)
step 2: open firefox
step3: open two tabs in firefox, so you have one to move
step4: move the tab outside of firefox as you would if you wanted to make that tab a new window/instance of firefox (lets say you dont want to tab switch and you would rather workspace switch)
step5: drag that tab straight from firefox to the top corner..

this should snap focus to the expo mode where by you have your firefox windows and other such things.. but on my system when i leave expo (using the escape key) it keep the big black 'X' on the corner of all standard applications, in fact the applications are still small and scaled as they were in expo. Furthermore if you open a new application they are small also. There is no way to log out and the only way to end the session is ctrl+alt+backspace

if you could try that i would be grateful ^

Have you reported your findings to the developers? If it's easy to reproduce that behaviour then it's a pretty serious bug.

Yup, that messed up the desktop. Is that supposed to work in vanilla Gnome Shell? I would just drag the tab out, right click on its title bar, and select the workspace I want to send it to.
