I used to tweak everything. Vim, Openbox, Xfce, window managers, desktop environments. Luckily, latest LTS Ubuntu 16.04 (despite many controversial - non-standard decision) comes with sane default GUI and shortcuts.
I take a complete new approach:
- Choose sensible defaults
- Learn the shortcuts - do not over-optimize, soon in year or two you would need to setup it up again.
My current challenge:
A handy wallpaper from imgur.com helps quite a lot.
I also need to enable for each monitor a separate workspace so I can send windows among them.
Life is much simpler now. Finally, some time to write a short blog post.
