I've came up with a list of applications by their category, name, if they're heavy, light or command line based, then a short description about the program or package, not everything is filled in 100% because i dont know all of the values.

I want people to add onto this list, tell me a program and their values i asked for please, and i will add them to the main list

The format should go category / app / heav, light, or command line / description
P.S. This thread will probably never be finished as you can see i'm slowly working on it

You can fly about this space world by moving and clicking your mouse, or by using your keyboard.

Editor: gvim. It's the same as vim but with a GTK+2 GUI. package: vim-gtk. It's light.

fbpanel is not limited to Fluxbox (I'm using it with Openbox at the moment). Oh, and Fluxbox is a WM, not a DE. :)

i'll have to try gvim, also



Desktop Environments & Window Mangers

Gnome - heavy

xfce - light
fluxbox - light
fvwm - light
fvwm-crystal - light
openbox - light
enlgithenment or e16/17 - light
icevm - light
pekwm - light

i put both DE and WM under the same category, i'm not 100% sure about all of them, i think only kde, gnome and xfce4 are DE's and the rest are WM's right? correct me please

(I've corrected the spelling of these in blue. :))

DE:
Gnome
KDE
xfce
fvwm-crystal (a DE in a sense -- look at the website to decide)


WM:
fluxbox - light
fvwm - light
openbox - light
icewm - light
pekwm - light



enlightenment or e16/17 - I'm not sure. Probably a WM, but they're calling E17 a "desktop shell" and it comes with some applications. It's up to you. E16 has mostly been considered a WM, I guess.



Under fbpanel, you had mentioned that it was for the Fluxbox DE, but I see you have fixed that now. :grin:

At a glance, you have two entries for links2.

I haven't read through the first post in full detail. I'll try to come back later when I have some time. ;)

Desktop panels
fbpanel light

Kicker

For those who like lightweight panels, especially the users of fbpanel, lxpanel will be a very good choice.
LXPanel is derived from fbpanel, and it's more feature-rich than the original fbpanel but still keep the resource usage low at the same time.
