Xfce

>love MATE look but it's buggy and dead
>try xfce

Why is there always something that doesn't work with linoox?
What the frick is this shit? Why is the top bar so fricking tiny on some windows?

Also
>move second monitor to the left
>it become primary monitor even if I set the right one as primary
>12 yo bug

This sucks cause I love the look
I don't want to fricking tinker

      that's probably just an issue with your WM theme. mine doesn't do that
      go to settings > window manager and you can change it there

    You will read 400 textbooks worth of documentation, you will spend thousands of hours tinkering with your system and endlessly distro hopping.

      WM settings only make me change the font size
      for the record I had to change the window scaling in appearance because otherwise EVERYTHING looks fricking tiny
      somehow, apps' top bars did change with everything but not the system's

      Why do DEs exist if I have to access linux distros only from the terminal?

        There is no logical reason to use a DE.

        Gnome is the closest you can get to a consistent linux desktop that doesn't shit all over itself

        GNOME preemptively shits all over itself, you're just missing a clean point of comparison.

            we all have to remember that linux is shit. i'ts always been shit. it's worked on as a hobby by people that don't really give a shit because they aren't being compensated in any way. but it does kinda sorta work more or less so if you don't really care about gaming it is an alternative to windows and mac. and yea, that's basically it.

    If you are at the point in your life where you are installing and fricking around with Linux you need to seriously evaluate your life choices and do something about it.

    If you really wanted everything to just werk without tinkering, you would’ve installed Mint and not changed the DE. I can only assume you’re lying when you say you don’t want to tinker

      To me tinkering is having to edit config files and writing down the process so that if I have to install it again I can redo it. A few button clicks I can remember
      Also, to fix the secondary monitor thing I had to follow a Mint forum guide so I would likely have had the same problems there

        Honestly Mint shouldn’t have an xfce version. And I say that as someone who uses xfce. It’s not polished enough for what Mint is going for

    It's infuriating how bad the Linux experience still is, it hasn't improved in the slightest in like a decade.
    I recently tried AV Linux MX because it comes preconfigured with audio-related software and codecs, anyway there was no programs already installed that attenuates the blue light so from the get go my eyes were getting raped because it was at full bright (this I remember being an issue even 10 years ago on Linux Mint), I am like searching for a program that attenuates the blue light and basically there is only 1 option: Redshift. I install Redshift, click on the program and any rational person would expect the program to show you a UI with some settings to configure, instead Redshift automatically starts (doing nothing apparently) and goes as a tray icon in the taskbar at the bottom, to bring up the settings you need to right click and navigate some menus (those UI menus also don't stop where your display ends, half of them extend in some unreachable dimension outside your screen, looks incredibly amateurish..), anyway since I had opened Redshift a bunch of times so there were several Redshift icons in the tray, I tried to delete those fricking icons and the whole bottom bar disappeared instead, not even a warning! Like they don't even warn you you are going to wipe out the entire bottom bar, now I'm left with a void screen and no idea how to bring that bar back. Frick this shit, it's just an infuriating waste of time with 0 thought given to usability

    you're using a window manager theme that doesn't support scaling
    the reason the background window is fine is because it's not using the window managers' decorations

      nta i disagree. the settings program is the best example:
      - options are aligned at the center instead of the left, making it inconsistent and harder to read. this also doesn't match the menu panels on the left side, which are left aligned IIRC
      - buttons, drop downs, and selection boxes are different heights
      - clunky menu system that uses 2 panels instead of 1 tree panel
      - a diamond icon for window maximizing, which isn't intuitive
      - displaying a huge number of options without headings to separate them
      - inconsistent paddings and margins, especially around labels

      i dislike GTK only because it's made for touch screens and that results in too much padding around elements, title bars, etc. oh and having controls on the title bars, that's bad as well.
