You know what's awesome?  Fluxbox! Fluxbox is awesome!  And Fluxbox lived happily ever after...



VSIDO, Fluxbox, Tint2, conky.  Again...

EDIT: thanks also to msjche on github for the conky config.

The scrot of the terminals playing ncmpcpp is also using a different rc.lua file altogether.  Who knew there were so many totally cool cli apps?  8)
Like pianobar, (a cli backend?) basically pithos from the terminal...

VSIDO, awesome wm, conky.  :)  Been running it now for a week on VSIDO with 0 issues at all.  If you want it, be ready to heavily edit some lua files.  The more I use tiling the more I really do like the workflow and once you learn the  ??? keybindings  ??? (or set up your own) it runs solid as a rock.

Clean with just the top and vertical wiboxes showing as well as the menu...


Tiling terminals...


Editing screen...


Editing without the top and vertical wibox showing...


Putting the conky in the vertical wibox allows it to be hidden with a keystroke!  Tiling can be catching if your into learning the keyboard and how to do keybindings.  It can be much faster to work than using a mouse all the time. (if at all)  The  ??? keyboard stuff  ??? has been the biggest curve for me...

As usual, I came up with none of this originally.  It is "copied" from the github Copy Cats and also msjche aka MoJo (also on github).  Probably also stole some settings from someone I'm not mentioning...  :'(

Still a little cosmetics to attend to, but gotta say I'm pretty happy with this setup so far!  The mem usage reflects having 6 virtual screens (tags) open with several apps open in each one. 8)

General Support / Re: Network slowdown/crash when laptop connects

Is it possible that when you installed Mate it grabbed something like conn-manager and/or pulled in some other gnome dependencies?  Because the laptop increases the chances of this happening.  Some config file somewhere got changed to reflect/refer/link the Mate system files? It will have to be blamed on Mate! :D  I dunno somewhere-else to look maybe?  If so and you can figure out what services/systemd is calling (because of Mate of course! :D ) then maybe I might know some wireless ways to get you back going.  Then again, I do have a lot of garage time in...  ???

 8) No disloyalty here, just messing around with the Arch partition with the updated awesome wm.  Pretty nice bling for tiling.  Just when I thought I was out (of tiling again), "They Pull Me Back In!"   :'(



 ??? When you add in tmux to the mix, wow, you can get really lost in what you've opened...   ???

My first guess would be that I'm getting routed through the Charlotte-Washington DC-NYC urban corridor.

Is nixnut actually hosted in Maine?

No.  I'm told by them (IcdSoft located in Hong Kong) that the server is physically located somewhere in Boston MA. (actually a suburb called Waltham?) It's supposed to be pretty secure and should be serving those ISO's up at a pretty snappy  ??? uhhhhh  ???, I'm not sure exactly how fast.  I've been with them since about '07 or '08.  ;D It is their "Business Plan" account.  I started with a "Personal Plan" account, but there just wasn't the space. (1Gb) Also the 1TB of space and all the extra security features make the biz account way more sensible for the money.  Anybody decides to get their 'server' there should let me know first so I get a discount/referral break. Taint cheap!  And as an added plug for them, I've NEVER been down, and have always had support in less than 10 minutes.  (all trivial issues that they were happy and quick to fix!!)  I've also NEVER lost any data, and as far as I know and can tell NEVER been breached...
MOF it is pretty much like having an extra 1TB hdd for my personal cloud!  :D
I get (here at home in Presque Isle, Maine) on average about 6.4MB/sec when grabbing the ISO's.  I can UL to nixnut at 2.0MB/sec which is the upper limit of my home connection.
I actually have computers here at home hooked up that are slower than the internet connection!  8)

So I thought I saw a scrot of PackRat's depicting the awesomewm.  Rather than mess up my perfect goto of VSIDO, I booted into an Arch partition and installed the new version. (4.2?)  I've used 'awesome' before in the past just to mess with LUA.  I have to say that this new version is much smoother and, dare I say, "awesome"?  :D

Clean shot with a fairly simple setup...


Dirty shot showing some transparency!

Also, no further issues with sleep/hybernation/black-screen after installing Nvidia drivers several hours (7hrs 20min) ago...   8)

Yeah pretty sure this is just a Nouveau issue with newer Nvidia cards.  Issue has been resolved since installing the 384.90 driver...

Please remember to use thumbnails! Thanks...




Love "Quintet N. 1"  By 'Dustin O'Halloran' on the album "Lumiere".  So haunting...  (not the Halloween kind!)

You can plainly see I was wrong, nouveau works fine with Nvidia seeing as how I've not installed the drivers yet!

So yes, while nouveau does work with my Nvidia GTX 980M, it pales in comparison to actually using the latest Nvidia driver. (384.90)  Colors seem deeper, DPI is seriously affected and changed when comparing between Nouveau and Nvidia drivers.



Another reason I've switched back to using Nvidia, is that with the Nouveau driver, after a couple of hours of inactivity, black screen and nothing to do but reboot to get it back.  Yes I know, I have a custom Kernel, but have never ran into this with Nouveau before.  I do know that the 980M had issues with Nouveau in the beginning.
Anyway, we'll see if the black screen issue is fixed simply installing the Nvidia driver.  Let you know next month!
