General Support / Re: Xorg update in the works?
« on: September 08, 2017, 12:10:54 AM »
Found this; couldn't find an actual Debian announcement - just the link to the change log in the article.

Xorg will still be available, which is good for those that don't want to use Gnome, KDE, Enlightenment, or sway.

General Support / Xorg update in the works?
« on: September 07, 2017, 01:14:25 PM »
There a big update to Xorg in the works? I'm getting the un-install all things X with the dist upgrade:



Guess I'll wait a couple days - let Irma go through as well, I suppose. Should make for a massive upgrade middle of next week.

spectrwm + emacs



The more I tinker with emacs the more I like it - need to get my head around some keybindings to exit gracefully though; getting hung up too often. Time to revisit the tutorial  8)

WM Designs and Discussions / Re: Fluxbox Styles
« on: September 02, 2017, 10:52:32 PM »
Been tinkering with some terminal fonts that were designed to look like the old DOS terminal font:

Nouveau IBM

Perfect DOS VGA

More/Less Perfect DOS VGA

Not only do they look good in terminals, they look really good in taskbars for tiling window managers. Went ahead and used Nouveau IBM (my favorite of the group) for the entire fluxbox style:

Found a nice battery monitoring app -

juiced battery monitor designed for minimal window managers

Nice little app, needs libnotify (should be installed by default) and libnotify-dev to compile. Like all things from the suckless crowd, edit the config.def.h file - basically select the thresholds you want, and the command to execute when battery is low (dangercmd[])

here is mine -

Code: [Select]
/* See LICENSE file for copyright and license details. */

/* battery to check */
static const char battery[] = "BAT0";

/* how often to check */
static const unsigned int repeat = 60;

/* order should be danger < critical < warning; numbers in percent; check is <= */
static const signed int warning = 20;
static const signed int critical = 10;
static const signed int danger = 5;

/* what command to run if battery is under "danger" value */
static const char dangercmd[] = "sudo zzz";

Extremely low on system resources:
Code: [Select]
632.0 KiB + 139.5 KiB = 771.5 KiB juiced

Sends a nice warning to desktop:



Tried it with dwm, spectrwm, i3, xmonad, fvwm - always worked as advertised.
