So I've come back to linux because I've fallen back in love with the command line (albeit I'm not so great with it) and the customability of linux based OS's. My question really comes from not knowing how to customize certain aspects of the OS.
To begin with, I want it to look like this. I have only gotten it to work like this.
So I'm running the cairo-dock with unity bar. But a couple of annoyances. I don't know how to get that little window thing to go away on the lower left corener. It allows you to switch between the four workspaces, but doesn't look as clean. Secondly,my "Top bar" doesn't look like the one I want to replicate, because I don't know where to begin. Any solutions for my two problems?
Installing Gnome 3 seemed to give me a bar on top that looks closer to the outcome, but it doesn't work with cairo.
