Just a list of common programs used in ricing, curated not out of popularity, but customisability.

Linux programs in Windows 10[edit]

With the release of WSL on Windows 10 and subsequent improvements made to it by Microsoft, it is easy for you to run many Linux programs on Windows 10 with perfect or almost perfect compatibility. If you are running Windows 10 but are interested in using Linux programs (ncmpcpp + mpd, or weechat for example), it is worth looking into WSL. You can learn more about WSL here.

Window managers[edit]

A window manager (WM) is system software that controls the placement and appearance of windows within a windowing system in a GUI. It can be part of a desktop environment (DE) or be used stand-alone.

Tiling[edit]

The following applications can be used to add tiling support to a window manager that otherwise doesn't have it.

Bars[edit]

Bars (aka panels, aka taskbars) are used to display everything from current desktops to active windows to system information.

Launchers[edit]

A launcher is a program displaying a dialogue to search for and perform actions, for example, launching an application.

Terminal emulators[edit]

A terminal emulator is a program which emulates a video terminal within some other display architecture, and is often the primary way you will interact with your system while ricing via the shell.

Shells[edit]

Shells are programs that execute commands and scripts from a command-line interface. Along with terminal emulators, a shell is the primary way you will interact with your system while ricing. If you have ever used Linux for longer than 5 minutes, you have probably already used a popular shell called bash.

Colour schemes[edit]

Wallpaper sources[edit]

Fonts[edit]

Depending on your distro, you may need to enable bitmap fonts if you intend to use them.

sudo rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/*-no-bitmaps.conf
sudo fc-cache -f -v

Browsers[edit]

  • Stylus
  • uBlock Origin - Not strictly rice, but you don't want ugly ads ruining your perfect rice, do you? ;)

Firefox[edit]

Chrome[edit]

Unfortunately, there isn't really a lot that can be done to Chrome's UI, so it's limited to userstyles such as those found in Stylus.

Qutebrowser[edit]

Qutebrowser is pretty restricted in terms of what you can do to the UI. You can change most fonts and colours but that's it. Reading the configuration guide thoroughly is highly recommended.

Sharing it[edit]

People, when ricing, generally share their config files and screenshots. Here's a list of sites and tools to do that.

If you intend to share a full archive of your dotfiles, it's recommended you create a repository on GitHub or GitLab to share and maintain them.
