We’ve all been through lots of window managers from Gnome, LXDE, Cinnamon etc. but I think I’ve finally come up with a pretty desktop environment that I’m happy with.

Debian or Ubuntu with Gnome shell and some shell extensions, themes and icons.

First off add the gnome-shell-extensions and gnome-tweaks packages. You may have to restart or logout to get the extension and tweeks to work together. You’ll need to enable the extension for User Themes so you can choose themes under “Appearance”

$ sudo apt install gnome-shell-extensions gnome-tweaks

Then go and download the Qogir GTK3 theme from gnome-look.org.

Now we want some Suru++ icons. I spent a while being lead around making and building, then gave up and used a git clone from https://github.com/gusbemacbe/suru-plus/ instead.

$ git clone https://github.com/gusbemacbe/suru-plus.git
$ cd suru-plus
$ ./install.sh

Call up Gnome tweaks and set the theme/shell to Qogir and your icons to Suru++.
