I'm going to be installing a linux distro on my laptop, my only linux experience to date is literally installing a distro and not using it
I end up giving up because every default de looks like absolute trash but to get a riced out minimalist desktop like I've seen here, I would have needed to have linux experience to know what I'm doing

What do I do?
I've had this laptop for about a month and haven't got as far as actually using it yet

Pic related, I just want something flat, squared off and basic

she uses openbox and tint2, you could recreate that theme in about 5-10 minutes pretty easily

at the moment I've got debian with the debian de
should I reinsall it without it and start from scratch?
this is more than likely a dumb question but I'm a little confused

the only thing about starting without the de is that the wifi never seems to work from the terminal

>Debian de
lol what
I think you should just use Linux a bit more and get an idea for what does what and how stuff works before you start tinkering with stuff

You can just install openbox without removing your de or reinstalling.

Just install #!++, then update your shit to the testing branch by editing sources.list or some shit

>> No.56319203

>>56319152
that's exactly my point, I can't use it a bit more without tinkering because I'm allergic to ugly design but I can't tinker because I haven't used it

but on the installer it literally says
>[*] debian desktop environment

>>56319158
then what would happen to all the other shit that was previously installed?

>>56319171
yeah crunchbang was the best I found a couple of years back when I was in the same predicament
I tried installing bunsenlabs but their iso doesn't seem to work on usb
are there any downsides to #!++ as opposed to installing standard debian?
