"Which is your favourite desktop?"

Post #302998083 by cb88 on Wednesday 24th of May 2017 11:16:43 PM

KDE 1.x (what more do you need I've seen it on machines with 16MB)
KDE 3.5.x (more than you'll ever need... yet doesn't fit in 640k)
Enlightenment 16 (snazzy and decent... sadly programmed by lunatics)
LXDE (what I use when I can't have the above)

That pretty much sums it up... I've used dwm on my Fujitsu P1120 which was as much tiling as I could cope with, as well as JWM and IceWM on occasion with a stint of running the ROX desktop... I still love that file manager.

desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)					  Allegro manual				      desktop_color_depth(3alleg4)

desktop_color_depth - Finds out the desktop color depth. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int desktop_color_depth(); DESCRIPTION
Finds out the currently selected desktop color depth. You can use this information to make your program use the same color depth as the desktop, which will likely make it run faster because the graphic driver won't be doing unnecessary color conversions behind your back. Under some OSes, switching to a full screen graphics mode may automatically change the desktop color depth. You have, therefore, to call this function before setting any graphics mode in order to retrieve the real desktop color depth. Example: allegro_init(); ... if ((depth = desktop_color_depth()) != 0) { set_color_depth(depth); } RETURN VALUE
Returns the color depth or zero on platforms where this information is not available or does not apply. SEE ALSO
