Artwork & Screenshots / Re: March 2017 Screenshot Thread
« on: March 20, 2017, 06:53:07 PM »
Couple more of bspwm - with tint2 this time:


Actually posted as a question about xdotool. The one screenshot shows the man page for xdotool; it can be used to minimize a window, but I can't get the syntax right. I suspect that it needs to be in a script with the getwindowfocus option. Has anyone used xdotool in a script that way?

Edit - found what I was looking for in hackerdefo's poor man's screenshot script -

Code: [Select]
    PMSS_PID=$(xdotool getactivewindow)
    xdotool windowminimize "$PMSS_PID"

Should be able to work with that.

^ Just in time; borked my vsido install trying to get nvidia drivers installed. It use to be so easy to get that done; now .... not so much.

Tinkering around, Xfce4 with bspwm as the window manager. True tiling with xfce4 session and desktop management:


xfce4 still handles the key bindings which is nice (and a bit of a surprise). Entering the bspwm window commands in xfce4 was a bit tedious, but so far worth it. Pretty smooth operations so far. Need to do something with the taskbar. Like most tilers bspwm doesn't support "iconify" (spectrwm is the only one that does as far as I know) so the iconbar is kind of pointless.

^ Nice. Is that weather app a KDE-only thing?

back on topic - all roads lead back to Fvwm:

I wonder if you're just missing a dependency. There may be some package needed to allow for rotated text, but it's not getting installed as a dependency for fluxbox since this feature appears to require a patch. Maybe look into that.

I can't get that functionality working either.

One thing to note though, tabs are different than the iconbar -

these options:

Code: [Select] If True, will rotate text on the tab so it is readable on vertically- placed tabs. Once again, use the Configuration/Tab Placement menu.

relate to window tabs; so if the tabs were positioned on the lesft side of the window, they cold be rotated horizontal and made readable.

these options -

Code: [Select]

relate to the toolbar/icon bar. As far as I know, those have never had a rotate option should the user want the bar vertical. Probabaly easiest to go with tint2 or some other taskbar for that.

I like the panel colors, have to port that over to fluxbox.

Has this script quick working for anyone else?

I know Youtube has made changes to their site in the past that would bork scripts; I'm thinking it may have happened with this one.

Edit - no, some issue on this particular set up

@jed -

here you go - compiling kernel 4.9 for debian

There are a couple changes to the packages you need to nstall; I sucessfully compiled it on a stock VSIDO install (nouveau driver); if you are using the dkms packages for nvidia, not sure how your video will work out.
