Actually, I despise icons on my desktop, so that's never been an issue for me.  I've tried Openbox a few times, it's just a bit too bare bones for my taste.  I like the whole panel with a menu thing. (Yes, I know you can put a panel in Openbox, I just don't like it as well.)  I also like shortcuts on my panel and in my menu for my favorite apps.  Here's my setup:



Not too far from "stock."  Just a few personal touches here and there, I like to keep things simple and straightforward.   8)

Yeah mine stays fairly stock too .. I'm not massive on customising, I used to, but now I just want it do "do stuff" :)

I'm not saying people shouldn't customise .. by all means do, that's why we try to make it easy .. it's just not for me.

That said, I do have the added benefit of choosing exactly what represents "stock"  .. so I wouldn't customise it too much would I  :D

I used to do a lot of customization too.  Now, I just prefer to dig in and get going, as you said.  Though, some things (like changing the clock display) do give me something to do while my graphics driver is downloading and installing.  ;)

I have all of that !! -- you just don't see it in my screenshot! I use (in the computer shown) lxpanel and set it to hide until the mouse enters the edge where it is hidden -- but otherwise it resembles your panel quite a bit. On other machines that I use with Openbox I have tint2 as my panel. Works quite well for me. I really use keyboard shortcuts very much to start programs, etc. so panel shortcuts don't bring me much and I don't always set them up.

You have a really nice, clean setup and it looks a lot like my standard Peppermint LXDE login. I switch between the Peppermint standard WM (LXDE), Openbox and i3 with just about every login. Maybe I should go into therapy ...

Tint2!  I'm so bad at remembering names, especially for software I haven't run in ages.  That's the panel I've used before in Openbox.  Not bad, but not quite as fancy as LXPanel.

Naw, there's nothing wrong with doing things how you like it.  It's your system, it should be set up exactly as you want it.  That's one thing that always attracted me about Linux.  If you don't like it, fix it.  ;D

Nice background is that the game Faster Than Light?

I own it but haven't had much of a chance to play it yet, if so! Too many Steam games.  :P

Yep, FTL.  That background is a game perk for buying it on GOG.  I like FTL, but you definitely die a lot.  Though, it can be hilarious.  I've had my crew die from suffocation, fires, being boarded and good old fashioned your hull reaches zero and the ship 'splodes.  I haven't played a whole lot of it.

I hear you on having too many games.  I have some games I've never played.  I'm saving them for when I'm done with others and don't have the cash to buy more.  :D

Thanks.  It's appropriately called DarkMint.   8)

Yeah, I love GL.  I have the first 20 Hal Jordan GL comics from the late 50s/early 60s in a handy single volume (line art only, no color, but I don't care) and I love it.  I need to get more volumes with more GL goodness.  :)

Using the Peppermix-dark theme with a picture I took during a recent trip to Washington, DC as my background and with a Conky script I pieced together from a couple of others.

Thanks. It seems to work well with the font colors in my Conky script as well.
