It's not black and white. Whether you should install and run programs
in dom0 depends on your security model. You can install and run DE- or
WM-related programs in dom0 as long as you're willing to accept the
risk.

Qubes' patched KDE still worked fine last time I tried it. Perhaps you
might find that more friendly?

I think the seriousness of installing things there may have been
slightly overstated. If all you are looking to install are standard
common desktop environment components, it should probably be fine.

I'm confused.



@bob38851; There are certainly lots of things we can wish for to improve 
things, but now the desktop has just been changed from KDE to XFCE, so 
there are probably many small things to be added/adjusted for the new 
environment in the coming releases.


It would be possible to have a fruitful discussion about this if you 
could be more specific on what you would like to do?
Which user-friendly features are you missing, or is your point how to 
replace the whole desktop with a customizeable one? Are you looking for 
something similar in flexibility as the Gnome 
CompizConfigSettingsManager addons, for example? (Is it the Desktop or 
the Window Manager flexibility you want more control of?) Or just a 
customizeable menu for app launchers? (The current panel can be 
multiplied with new, custom launchers)

[qubes-users] More user frindly desktop.

2016-12-07 Thread bob38851
I'm new to qubes but how can I make a more user friendly desktop without 
installing a few things on dom0. Even the link in the qubes docs is to a guy 
who did that but they also say never run anything in a template or dom0.

I'm confused.
