Forged Path Desktop
Dobbie03 decided to give sidboX a try after using Gnome-Shell for a long time and this inspired him to customize his Arch box which you can see above. If you have no idea what this is about, no big deal – the end result is a gorgeous, customizable Linux desktop that we can all admire.
Dobbie03 found sidboX to be great. It’s feature-rich, lightweight, and of course, customizable. If you are interested in Openbox and are a Linux user, you can give it a try. Here’s what you’ll need to customize this look:
- CoverGloobus (from the AUR archive as it is no longer in the AUR) and this Covergloobus theme by Dobbie03
- Conky , a lightweight system monitor for Linux systems (with custom theme)
- Vimix Dark theme
- Plank Dock and Application Launcher
- Tint2 System Tray and Taskbar
If you are unsure of any particular part of the entire installation, be sure to check out the Dobbie03 kinja blog linked below to learn all about it. He explains perfectly how he sets things up and provides download links if necessary. While you’re there, let him know how much we love his work too!
