NixOS screenshot thread

Dual monitor setup which mostly acts like 2 separate computers. First monitor runs regular KDE setup without anything overly exotic, except some tweaked out KWin rules for determining what applications run on what monitors. The second monitor is a TV which is in another room, connected via an HDMI cable that runs through the wall, and runs Kodi. Kodi is controlled via the remote control on the TV (libcec support in Kodi) and serves as the families htpc in the living room. 2 Logitech F710 wireless gamepads which work great even though the tower is in a separate room.

GNOME 3 with Plank dock. I’m looking forward to use elementary’s Pantheon desktop once merged: #48637

See my configuration at https://github.com/davidak/nixos-config/blob/master/machines/thinkpad_X230/configuration.nix

I’ve gotten into ricing thanks to NixOS :slight_smile:

i3-gaps, compton, polybar, dracula theme, the works

@aanderse what is the Kodi theme you’re using? Looks nice and clean.

Arctic Zephyr. The theme defaults are a little bit boring but if you tweak the theme it’s really great. I chose the vertical menu option and then set custom widgets so the theme would show the most recently added tv shows and movies, as well as the most recently played steam games.

Just Gnome, no real customizing, nothing fancy.

Thanks to help here, I found a decent NixOS wallpaper.

Fake-ish busy scrot of my desktop. Bars are polybar(1), WM is bspwm (wmnamed to satisfy the odd Java program).

Soon I have everything integrated in my nixos-config repo; dotfiles and email setup remain.
