BlackArch Linux : An Arch Linux based live DVD for ethical hackers and security researchers that can be easily installed on a USB thumbdrive if needed. This distribution is developed by a team of volunteers and contains over 1500 penetration testing tools. It contains multiple window managers, the download is over 4GB.
A graphical login manager, besides being nicer to look at, also protects you from leaving a logged-in user session (or even worse, a root session. ) on a TTY that could be used by someone walking up to your computer. On my computer I use the environment-agnostic x11/slim. I prefer to use a graphical login manager. Some desktop environments include their own, like KDE’s KDM.
Sudo apt-get install build-essential git qt5-default qttools5-dev-tools libqt5gui5 qtmultimedia5-dev.
When you make a port in the Ports Collection it downloads the upstream source archive, patches it, configures it, builds a customized binary package, and uses FreeBSD’s underlying binary package manager to install it. Each port contains the metadata for that piece of software including the filename of the source archive, sha256 hash of the files, what other software dependencies it requires, what compile-time options are available, what files it installs, and any patches necessary to work around non-portable code or fix issues that can’t be upstreamed to the projects themselves. Every port has a maintainer whose job it is to keep the port up to date and respond to issues if they arise with newer versions of the operating system. FreeBSD is historically famous for its Ports Collection, a directory skeleton of Makefiles and patches describing how to programmatically build packages of third-party software for your computer. For example, check out the ports I maintain.
To install the Lumina desktop environment on a Manjaro system either install the lumina-desktop package from the graphical package manager or run the following command:. The Manjaro Linux distribution includes Lumina desktop packages in the project’s Community repositories.
Docks can hold normal launchers and “dockapps”, small self-contained dock accessories. It isn’t as popular or well-known as the others here, but Window Maker is my favorite and longest-used window manager. Unlike the extremely limited one-dimensional Mac OS X dock, Window Maker offers a main dock as well as a “clip” dock that is unique to each virtual desktop. It is based on the look and feel of the NEXTSTEP operating system, the OS that became Rhapsody and then Mac OS X and iOS.

Hi, I’ve read at some pages with instructions for installing Lumina that dbus and
hald should be enabled at /etc/rc.
Maybe I’m just getting old, but it’s nice to use an operating system that didn’t spawn a billion-dollar anti-malware industry through frequent security failings, where you can choose the interface you like and reasonably expect it to stay that way instead of being forced into the design fad du jour, where you don’t have to argue about the init system being replaced two times in the same decade, and whose key organizations don’t collectively kowtow to Microsoft when convenient. I’ve used many operating systems and have yet to find one more consistent and cohesive yet as well-supported as the BSD family, and FreeBSD is the one with the biggest community and most available drivers for things like graphics cards. Despite that, FreeBSD is just a few settings away from being an easy, powerful Desktop OS rivaling Linux, complete with the same software ecosystem available through the Ports collection. “FreeBSD on the server, Linux on the desktop” is an oft-seen sentiment among some FreeBSD enthusiasts, and it’s sort of understandable considering the conservative out-of-the-box FreeBSD installation.
Please note, some people have reported they had to reboot their computer before Lumina would appear as a session option on the login screen. The package manager should take care of the details of installing Lumina® and also install the desktop’s dependencies. Afterward Lumina® will be available as a session option from Fedora’s login screen.
Its configuration options are dizzyingly numerous and it has excellent support for modern technologies like high-DPI displays. KDE is the largest and most fully-featured Free Software desktop environment, based on the Qt toolkit. It has a modern compositing window manager, KWin, the web and file browser Konqueror that famously spawned the KHTML engine that became WebKit, and a family of other Qt applications like the excellent Clementine. The KDE4 meta-port is available at x11/kde4.
Without -r it will just fetch security and errata updates for your current minor version. You can upgrade to a new minor version in your current major or to a new major version entirely.
