^ Nice to see you're still alive and kicking.

Sweet looking setup there.

Welcome to my life.......... I feel for you buddy!

Just cut a deal with my oldest; be trading laptops with her. Put Windows 7 (I actually like 7) back on the HP (came with it) and then blow away Windows 10 with a clean uEFI Linux install  ;D

Edit - the process begins

Windows 10 free by the time school starts mid-August  8)

The 4.12 kernel came through on Void around July 12.

My VSIDO setup is still using 4.11.0-1-amd64.

I haven't read anything about Debian Sid moving to 4.12. Although the 4.12-trunk is in experimental now -

along with a 4.11 upgrade - time to dist-upgrade  ;D

Any idea what the lag time between experimental and sid repos is?

spam the forum some more while I'm here -

A slight change request -

In the vsido-exit script, there is the line:

Code: [Select]
which gives the script the xprop WM_CLASS(STRING) of "yad" "What would you like to do?"

That is sort of a pain in the ass if a user wants to do per app settings for that dialog box across different window managers.

Change that line to something like:

Code: [Select]

will make per app setting much easier. Name it what you want, just don't leave white space.

I'm thinking it's GTK related.

Un-group it and see if you re-create the issue if that doesn't mess up your work flow too much.

Did you notice if it freezes trying to access the same folder/partition - like a network share or something like that?

I'm addicted to window managers -  :'(

Xmonad using the Xmonad.Hooks.EwmhDesktops, Xmonad.Hooks.Minimize, Xmonad.Layouts.Minimize so that the window manager is ewmh compliant and works similar to stacking window managers like fluxbox. Panels with taskbars like tint2 (in the screenshot) and xfce4-panel appear to be fully functional; conkyrc setup as own_window no/false.

If only xmonad wasn't written in haskel - brings in about 1.5 gigs of ghc and not the easiest syntax to deal with when configuring.

nVidia is holding up well on my system; older card but not quite legacy.

^ I also wonder about the auto erotica / asphyxia high too after what happened to David Carradine.

But I think a lot of this is related to the anti depressent drugs in use today. Those drugs are way to powerful now and seem to render people sort of null and void. Heard too many horror stories from others whose friends or relatives were taking them. Didn't want users of them on construction sites; there was some talk of banning them. Might actually test for them in pre-emplyment screening now.

VSIDO (host WILLOW-01) set up as nfs server. Using it to store backups of my Void linux systems:

trying to improve my rsync skills.

xmonad + polybar + vsido:

Looks good.

^ Probably saw it early on when xfce4-panel was in use/testing ...

made it myself; here you go:

Code: [Select]
[Desktop Entry]
Name=VSIDO Exit
Comment=Exit Session
GenericName=VSIDO exit script

icon.png is the vsido orb in /usr/share/icons - maybe give that image a less generic name, or use one of the other images there.

should show up in menus that search the /usr/share/applications ( in this instance):

verified it is working; script launches and I can log out etc ...

Some of the non-English speaking users can hopefully add some translations for you.

Been running nice and smooth, did notice a couple items though.

1. There was no entry to exit fluxbox in the "Fluxbox menu" submenu - the window manager's native exit, not the vsido-exit script. So I added one to mine:

Code: [Select]
< snip >
      [workspaces] (Workspace List)
      [commanddialog] (Fluxbox Command)
      [reconfig] (Reload config)
      [restart] (Restart)
      [exec] (About) {(fluxbox -v; fluxbox -info | sed 1d) | xmessage -file - -center}
      [exit] (Exit)

If vsido-exit fails for whatever reason, using the native fluxbox exit is the elegant way to quit fluxbox and get back to the lightdm screen (or console if the user doesn't use a DM). I think you should add that to the default menu.

2. I thought there use to be a vsido-exit.desktop file in /usr/share/aplications; doesn't seem to be one now. Was it removed? Nice addition if a 3rd party menu generator is being used.
