Ubuntu 18.04 + Unity 8

I kinda got fed up with the poorly utilized top bar area of GNOME and decided to remove it in favor of Ubuntu’s former Unity desktop. To get it work properly I had to make sure GNOME was completely removed removed from my system as they share some settings. I also installed the  proper Ambiance and Radiance themes were installed. I also reinstalled lightdm and removed gdm for my log in screen.

If you want a good take on why Unity just works check out Infinitely Galactic’s Vlog post on the subject.

Twitter Sunday

So, I might have spent a few minutes on Twitter this evening. A crazy man was yelling at Iran in all caps while a Forbes contributor claimed public libraries are a waste of tax dollars.

I’m going to keep my distance from Twitter and hope educated minds prevail.

Absolute OpenBSD

Recently snapped up the Linux Geek Humble Bundle and this is where I’ve chosen to start. A few friends on G+ have suggested I try BSD and to this day I haven’t given it a fair shake. I expect this fun title will change that.
