Ideal Build
« on: February 15, 2014, 07:18:21 PM »
I'm just trying to figure out what makes sense
I finally have a pc with enough power to run virtualbox, & it is in a place where I will spend time futzing around

I use clementine & digikam
I use virtual desktops
a few different browsers, chrome, chromium, the 3rd can be midori, opera, not sure what else would do
any sort of word processor that will output doc format
preferably I can update instead of starting from scratch with new releases
none of that is hard

I'm using KDE, but xcfe is ok
I really want a sidebar on the right, with notifications & launchers/menu

I don't really understand QT vs GTK, seems like it would be good to stick with one or the other?
I guess what I'm after is stripped down KDE, just because of Digikam...
maybe build on a stick & install the finished version after spending some time testing

I can devote an hour or so per day towards my VS education

I'm looking for discussion about how to on a VSido build
Vastone helped me understand some things a few years ago on ubun, I followed along a bit over the years, until I had the time, equipment & inclination to try VS in a meaningful way
I like the community I understand VO's mindset somewhat & support FOSS...

my present roadblock is
