Your problem is that you're trying to use a modern desktop environment with an ancient video card that cannot support it. In general, servers come with relatively poor video cards because nobody uses them. You're not helped in this regard by the fact that your GPU is from 2007 and has what would now be considered a tiny amount of video memory.
GNOME, by ...
Did you try to change the theme to dark mode using the GNOME Tweak Tool? You could choose the default dark mode option from the Settings → Appearance [Menu Option] → Appearance [Tab Bar] → Dark Mode. Sorry if I got it wrong!
Update for KDE 5.18.3 QT 5.12.5:
did not have to install lxappearance package
GTK2/3 settings are in System Settings --> Application Style --> Gnome/GTK Application Style
My issue was with Angry IP Scanner - Breeze GTK style looked like this:
Changed to AD-BlueAgave, closed and reloaded. Now looks like this:
No additional packages necessary. ...
There are a few things you need to understand.
Gnome doesn't support system tray since 3.26. It's their decision and we should accept it.
Some people don't agree with this and they started creating extensions for Gnome. I guess Manjaro ships some of these extensions as default.
When we are talking about tray icons themselves, this is quite complicated ...
you can use devilspie. But you have to write config files by your own. They should be stored in folder $HOME/.devilspie/ (if folder not exist create it).
Here an example for firefox. $HOME/.devilspie/firefox.ds
(is (application_name) "Firefox")
From here you can download the gui gdevilspie.
But I have no experience with it.
I'm not entirely sure what you mean, but workspaces are a fairly standard concept across window managers. This might help.
If you're willing to test out another WM, both i3 and XFCE might have what you're describing.
I also am having this problem. I believe it only happens if you are using GNOME and GDM.
My "workaround" was to install LightDM instead of GDM (still running GNOME) and i3lock. This solved the problem, but is a little more hinky than the native GNOME and GDM lockscreen.
If anyone comes up with a native solution, please post it here.
Unfortunately, gnome-boxes (like the majority of "gnome" software) is very limited and won't allow for any customisation. Your best bet would be using KVM directly (which is what gnome-boxes is a primitive GUI for) or using other solutions like Virtualbox, etc.
To enable Wayland for Gnome in Fedora, two main actions are needed, as explained below in details:
TL;DR: Enable Wayland in the GDM configurations in /etc/gdm/custom.conf
Open /etc/gdm/custom.conf for editing (as you know, you must be root).
