  • i3

    Discontinued A fork of the i3 window manager with gaps and some other features. :warning: i3-gaps has been merged into i3. (by Airblader)

    some are certainly different windows managers, which you can have installed along with, say linuxmint cinnamon for example. When you log in, you can click the icon to change which window manager you want to log in to. I would suggest easing yourself in, especially if you are new/newer to linux. Youtube has some great tutorials, thats how I learned to install/use https://i3wm.org/ with https://github.com/Airblader/i3 (i3-gaps), this allows you to change the size of the tiles you are making in i3wm.

  • polybar

    A fast and easy-to-use status bar

    I would suggest learning how to use git to download some of these tools, and get comfortable with editing config files which allow you to create some of these visuals in your linux experience. https://github.com/polybar/polybar is a nice bar replacement that lets you customize what is on your taskbar, down to the icons themselves. Very customizable, and again great tutorials on youtube. Here is the one I used: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLB008-FJ5o&t.
