Sparky + Budgie Desktop
« on: January 29, 2015, 04:30:10 pm »
I've been fighting the last 3 days with Budgie Desktop.
It finally works on the top on my Sparky/Debian testing base :)

It looks very nice. The only thing I would change (my opinion only) is to remove the transparency from the bottom elements. ;)

Seeing how we're attracting alternative desktops recently, I think I need to speed up my attempts in creating a build system. :P

Easily done (right click on panel) 'preferences'>panel>(gnome-panel theme intergration);)

Been running this desktop (and distro) for months with no issues.  Its very light, fast and good looking. Its just reached the "Beta" stage so expect more features in the near future....

Thanks. That last screenshot appeals to my visual tastes. I think I'll give this DE a spin. :)

I have built debs already and tested them on fresh sparky base installations.
As I can see, it doesn't freeze on 32 bit system as I saw that on the system I compiled budgie.

I also have to revert the RAM usage.
Sparky installation has less packages and services running than my production system(s) so the Budgie desktop uses on the top of clear Sparky:
- 32 bit ~ 150 MB of RAM
- 64 bit ~ 220 MB of RAM

Now, I am satisfactied :)

Tried changing icons/themes with dconf editor.  Still a no-go... :(
Added Gnome-Tweak-Tool from repo.  Made changes there. Still a no-go.
All works fine with XFCE and Cinnamon desktops also install on this "Sparky".  Seems something is missing in Budgie.
