Couple shots of bspwm:

It's a tiling window manager, been around for about a year. "Written by an arch user for other arch users" as they like to say over there. Interesting project, hope it keeps getting developed. Really need to be a script kiddie to get the most out of it, I think so I won't be messing with it too much longer. Having some issues just getting some basic configuration changes - like window border colors.

Note - if you do decide to check it out, debian systems need to use xbindkeys for hot keys, not the sxhkd program that the bspwm developer wrote, otherwise it crashes. Get the latest release from git and build from source - I had to get one dependency which was in the repos.

edit - link to git repo:
there is a dedicated thread in the Arch forums for those interested.

I browsed for the directory for about 5 min before I realized I was on my debian testing desktop.

Most of my themes (fluxbox and fvwm) are my own. I'll tweak a theme every now and then - like the VSIDO theme, but I also have a template I use that has all the options. I use the Tin Black theme as a guide since it is a non-pixmap theme, but all the color scheming is my own. I can't use gimp at all so if I want some pixmaps I'll grab some from another theme. I use the buttons from the elfin theme a lot.

An fvwm theme I did from scratch -

yes, it's just a desktop switcher that sits in the system tray. Desktop can be changed by mouse click, but IMO the app is too small for mouse clicking - and I can't get the geometry option working; switching desktops with key binding is way more efficient. Also, since tint2 can be configured to look and act like a pager, no need to use neap with tint2. And tint2 configured as a pager is much more useful in *box or fvwm. I checked out neap because of the previous discussion in the wm configuration thread.

I'm getting the feeling this was someone's exercise in learning python and was released as an open source project.

No need to include it in any releases; no value added.

If someone knows python, maybe the source could be hacked so that the pager can reside on the desktop, or in the slit/dock/harbor, and the geometry could be adjusted. Then it would be a nice alternative to older apps like fbpager.

@lwfitz - thanks

No real changes - trying out a pager app written in python -  neap; Works in the fluxbox system tray and tint2:

neap is written in python and you can use mouse buttons 1 and 3 to change desktops

had to install python-xlib as dependency.

I installed wicd on VSIDO but now I am not able to figure out how to replace ceni with wicd, to test things out. As of now, both of them, i.e., ceni and wicd start up, and wicd is shut down by the system (I think)....

This may be because ceni writes to the /etc/network/interfaces file while wicd (and gnome's network manager) do not. I'm pretty sure if you edit (as root) the /etc/network/interfaces file and comment out everything but the:

Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

lines (usually at the beginning) then wicd should work.

If you go back to using ceni, you will need to remove the wicd configuration files.

@DevilOne - one of my favorite pekwm/openbos/fluxbox themes; somewhere on a backup, I have my fvwm version of that theme. Question to pekwm users here - I have been looking, but can not find out if a pekwm theme can be created that does not require pixmaps. Is it doable? I think it is, but I have not delved too deeply into the syntax/options of pekwm themes yet.

back on topic -

@vastone - for #10, I believe that setting will show dotfiles by default for File -> Open/Save etc ... operations.
