Since this is a Linux desktop (running KDE Plasma 5 , one of your favorite desktop environments,) you’ll need a few components to get started, but no overarching tool or utility to customize everything.
Here’s what you’ll need:
That’s pretty much it. The individual KDE applications are obviously optional, but they do fit in line with the overall theme. If you’re an Arch user, we imagine you could add even more customizations or system monitors to this with some smart use of Conky, a Linux utility we see in a lot of our featured desktops. That all said, if you have questions about how to set this one up or how to make everything look just so, hit the Flickr link below and ask away.
Do you have a good-looking, functional desktop of your own to show off? Share it with us! Post it to your personal Kinja blog using the tag DesktopShowcase or add it to our Lifehacker Desktop Show and Tell Flickr pool. Screenshots must be at least at least 1280×720 and please include information about what you used, links to your wallpaper, skins, and themes, and any other relevant details. If your awesome desktop catches our eye, you might get featured!
