    That looks pretty dang sweet. I am still very partial to ubuntu studio's desktop asthetics.

      Definitely had a lot of work since I last saw it. Looking good!

        It looks so much better now. I'm just waiting for them to do something about the titlebars...

          Not sure whether it is a trait of the Qt5 toolkit, but it looks almost like a carbon copy of Plasma 5 with different theming.

            And once you dig into it, it's a mess. Illogical/unestethic (start) menu design annoys me the most about Lumina. "Preferences" and so forth. It feels like designer has never put his/her hand on Lumina and it's just bunch of stuff thrown together at random by coders themselves. Some of the selections you do/options you choose, have no effect.

              Did you try it on TrueOS or did you install it on Linux (Arch, for example, has it unofficially available to install)?

                It seems to be evolving nicely. The last time I tried was at 1.0. I think it's time to test it again to see how it's going. Nice work!

                  It looks like it's using KDE Plasma's "Breeze Dark" desktop theme (https://www.ryananddebi.com/wp-conte...6/09/look3.png), which is understandable, because it's very nice :-)

                    I have not used KDE for years my distribution does not have it in its repos but I could still install it, its just that the custom xfce wm on my system is already very satisfying but its really cool seeing what options are out there and what other people are running.
