Changed the font to Aller, rearrenged and changed the windows/programs, changed the colors in Terminator to more pastel-ish and installed another extension named Frippery Move Clock. Also changed Chromium for a customized Firefox. More info below.What:
An updated version of my laptop running Arch Linux with Gnome 3 Shell. Somewhat spacesaving, kind to the eyes and a work environment that helps me "get shit done".
Please download for full quality.Why:
Wanted to try Gnome 3 when it came out, kind of didn't like it in the beginning but after I learned to work with the setup it's actually rather nice.
Been lazy in configuring it for a long time now, but tested some extensions etc. and it was really giving a way better experience than the default. There are also a lot of great themes for both shell and gtk3 out there compared to when it was released, so that combined with extensions makes it easier to be a Gnome 3-user. How:
