(KDE Plasma Desktop 5.15)

We are getting excited as Plasma 5.15 has been released (since 12 February 2019) and we soon want to test it. I have tested it on Neon and it is lightweight and very impressive. This list is for you wanting to test Plasma as quick as possible by downloading GNU/Linux distros with built-in Plasma 5.15. They are Neon 5.15, Kubuntu 19.04, Chakra, KaOS, and openSUSE Tumbleweed. You can download the ISO images from links I mentioned below and quickly run a LiveCD session of them. Additionally, I also mentioned Kubuntu 18.10 and Fedora 30 on the separate section below as they don't bundle it but make it available through repositories. Anyway, go ahead and happy testing!

Continuing KDE, GNOME, and MATE customization the series, it's XFCE's turn being customized with a global menu and Capitaine theme pack. We will use an XFCE theme, a GTK3 theme, an icon theme, tweak the top panel a little, and then install Plank as the dock, and finish them up with some more tweaking. I practiced this on Xubuntu 18.04 with XFCE version 4.12. I wish this helps everybody especially you who just started customizing XFCE desktop. Happy tweaking!

(MATE Desktop customized with Yosemite Theme Pack)

Following the first and the second tutorials, it's MATE Desktop's turn now getting customized with Yosemite Theme Pack. We will use OS-X-Yosemite as both interior (GTK3) and exterior (Metacity) themes, McHigh Sierra as icon theme, Madmac as Plank theme, plus some more tweaks done via MATE Tweak Tool. You don't need to install any additional software package. This customization has been tested and worked on Ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS. It's really fun and everybody new to customization can benefit from the basics practiced here. Enjoy it, and share with your friends!

(GNOME 3.30 customized with McMojave theme pack)

Last time I applied Mojave theme on KDE Plasma and this time I want to apply similar thing onto GNOME 3. I use Fedora 29 as the basis, however, you can do it on any other GNU/Linux distro. As the composition, I use here McMojave as both Shell and GTK3 themes, and then Mojave-CT icon theme, plus two additional GSEs namely Desktop Icons and Dash to Dock. Don't worry even if you have no experience in desktop tweaking, as I have published GNOME customization preparations article before this tutorial. Go ahead, have fun, and enjoy!

Before writing a GNOME 3 theming tutorial, I feel like to write a preparation tutorial as the basics for beginners. In this simple tutorial you will learn about what folders need to be created, what are their purposes, three different themes of GNOME, their directory structures, and of course what tool needed to setup themes. I hope this helps everybody who wants to customize their GNOME themes and to be ready for the next tutorial. Enjoy!

Continuing previous part, in this part I will talk especially for Budgie Desktop Settings. It is equivalent to Tweak Tool on GNOME or Unity, a graphical tool to adjust desktop preferences. With this, I can add more panel, add and rearrange applets, and put icons on desktop. This is the last part of my journey on Budgie Desktop. I hope everybody can have fun with all this Budgie series. Enjoy!

You may find it's difficult on Ubuntu Budgie 18.04 to share you internet access from wifi to wifi so your phone device can connect to the internet through your laptop. It does not require you to install any program. The requirement is only to have 2 wifi adapter (no matter either it's usb, pcmcia, or pci) so one used as receiver and one as transmitter. The steps are surprisingly short and easy. Let's go and happy surfing!
