At one time I thought xfce was king

Tis light still and installs real easily.. if it wasn't for FluxBox and other derivatives xfce would easily be the best choice

@vastone -

Ever configured xfce to use fluxbox as the window manager? That's kind of interesting since you get the session management of xfce with fluxbox window management.

Edit - put my money where my mouth is; Xfce4 session with fluxbox as the window manager:

Get the benefit of fluxbox apps file (grouped xfce4 terminals) and window decor management. Fluxbox controlling the key bindings for window management - much more control that xfce4; xfce4 controls the desktop and panel.

That sounds fascinating RatMan... might have to try it

Never would have thought of it..

Slow day, straight up xfce4 with conky. Using xfce4 native compositing so put a border around conky for some texture to the conky window, looks better than just a semi-transparant rectangle on the desktop. I wounder if rounded window corners has ever been requested as a conky feature?

^^Just lost a books worth of a reply by hitting the reload button. :(  All about my old t400 laptop.  Anyway, I'll try not to post so many scrots...   bwahahahahaha
(obviously this is my t400 laptop scrot.moe for the day, not my MSI)

Another t400 scrot.  Pretty impressed with this little beast!  Thrown pretty much everything at it with no problems at all.  I did find out that GMusicBrowser only works right when you have the correct folder ssh'd and mounted...  Go figure.  Yeah, I forgot to mount the music folder and couldn't figure out why all of the music kept getting removed...  duoh!

hello PackRat  and everyone
It started with a screencapture. It spun into disorientation looking through five years of conky.  Now left me in chagrin to re-find the recent jedi's 20180227a [/6V3nj] screencapture of February 22 shows conky with a keyboard key-state indicator.  finally found it again.  I do not know where best to post this : in screenshots February is past or in the conky thread.  I wish to know more about the key state indicator, please, jedi.  In the meantime I have convoluted a meager key indicator that does not look in conky so fantastic as that of jedi's screencapture. 
jedi. can You please send me in the right direction about that conky indicator? or show the code / script?  for key state.  seems useful for a machine that is without visual indicator.  how much resources does that eat?

Post by: jedi on March 04, 2018, 07:36:18 PM
Hey riV.  It is a conky that calls a script.  Here is the script called 'header.sh';
Code: [Select]
#!/bin/sh
# header.sh
# by Crinos512
# Usage:
#  ${execp ~/conky/mine/header.sh} #obviously this needs to point to where you store the script
#OSVer=""`lsb_release -i | cut -f 2| tr "[:upper:]" "[:lower:]"`" ( "`lsb_release -r | cut -f 2`" )"
#WMVer=`Xfwm --version`
Updates=`aptitude search "~U" | wc -l | tail`
#Conky=`\{conky_version\}}`

#echo "\${voffset -20}\${font Diamond Fantasy:style=Bold:pixelsize=20}\${alignc}\${color}\$nodename\${font}"
#echo "\${font Liberation Sans:style=Bold:pixelsize=11}\${alignc}~ \$kernel \$machine ~"
#echo "\${alignc}~ $OSVer ~ $WMVer ~"
echo " \${alignc}${Updates} Sys Upd"
#echo "\${alignc}~ $Conky  ~"
#echo "\${alignc}~ Uptime: \$uptime_short ~\${color}\${font}"
#echo "\(Conky \${conky_version}\${exec conkyForecast -V})"
echo "\${font xirod:Bold:size=6}NUM: \${exec xset q | grep Num |awk '{print " "\$8}'}  \${font}"
echo "\${font xirod:Bold:size=6}CAPS: \${exec xset q | grep Caps |awk '{print " "\$4}'}  \${font}"
exit 0

Wherever you want the keyboard indicators to appear, just call it from the appropriate place in your conky with the following;
Code: [Select]
${execpi 9 ~/conky/mine/header.sh}
To my knoweledge the script was written by 'crinos518' whom I haven't seen online in years?  The script does much more than just show the caps lock and num lock state.  Any line with a '#' in front of it is not seen by the script when it runs.  It has lots of goodies.  Enjoy...
Good Luck!

hello PackRat
Thank You muchly, jedi.  I will give that a try.  Crinos51two8 is not found here at vsido,, found in other places an indication Crinos51two8 said to use freely the scripting.  Is it okay to share freely? did I get that right?  The chagrin part is that I started talking about the key state in another forum,, now,, this code provenance will include that it came through jedi.  Thanks.

hello PackRat
hi jedi.  Have no idea why it works.  Here it is:
Code: [Select]
${color}key ${color7}state active
${color7}NumLock   ${exec xset q | grep Num |awk '{print "  " $8}'}
${color7}Caps Lock ${exec xset q | grep Caps |awk '{print "  " $4}'}
(https://i62.servimg.com/u/f62/19/54/79/38/crijed10.jpg) (https://servimg.com/view/19547938/9)

There is some kind of awk default to print, so somehow it could be shorter. what do you think? can it be shortened?
Without Your start at it I never could have got this. thanks.
There is alternate ways, better way?
Is it close enough to not be considered silliness?
Fingers- crossed here that you say it is ready to share. is it ready?  If not, then stop me here before it makes me look silly elsewhere please.  I will wish to include the code You passed along as the starting point.

@riV - using grep with awk is usually overkill - using the big hammer to pound finishing nails sort of thing.

Just use awk by itself and use grep with sed.

and you don't necessarily need the heading in your conky, you can do it all with awk, use quotes to space:

Code: [Select]
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Caps Lock:/ {print $2 " " $3 " " $4}'
Caps Lock: off
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Caps Lock:/ {print $2 " " $3 " " $4}'
Caps Lock: on
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Num Lock:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: on
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Num Lock:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: off
[pts/0]-[~]% xset q | awk '/Num Lock:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: on

Actully, the way that xset is output, you can just use the first character -

Code: [Select]
[pts/4]-[~]% xset q | awk '/00:/ {print $6 " " $7 " " $8}'
Num Lock: on
[pts/4]-[~]% xset q | awk '/00:/ {print $2 " " $3 " " $4}'
Caps Lock: off
[pts/4]-[~]%

fun with text parsing  ;D

hello PackRat
Thanks for examples You and jedi.  same output to conky as that previous image from this:
Code: [Select]
${color}key ${color7}state active
${color7}NumLock     ${exec xset q | awk '/Caps/ {print $8}'}
${color7}Caps Lock   ${exec xset q | awk '/Caps/ {print $4}'}
you accomplished having me learn a bit. Thanks vsido community forum.

Just can't imagine that not being impressive anywhere anytime!  Very nice VastOne!

Trying out a new look, and also, I've had KDE installed for a long time now (maybe a year?) "GASP", and also a different music player than 'gmb' called amarok.  I know it's been around for years, just never tried it and not to impressed.  GMusicBrowser really spoils a person!  VSIDO of course and Fluxbox and Tint2 and yes still conky there too...

Still a work in progress, aint it always?  Anyway, headed to Bangor this morning for an appointment and hopefully the whole weekend!  Maybe a rodeo while we're there, we'll see...

Well participatiing of course!  NOT!!!  No we ended up coming home that evening.  Got to eat at the Olive Garden though.  As for the rodeo, never been to one and thought it would be an exciting spectacle.  I've watched on tv of course, but never right up against the fence!
