LOL ... I saw yours and decided to take another look at pekwm myself  :D

Edit - switched from that most awesomely horrid default orange theme:



won't get me to switch from fluxbox.

@jed - nice shot

Have you tried using the grouping (tabbed windows) feature of pekwm? Grouped/tabbed windows is what really sets fluxbox and pekwm apart from openbox, but I never really got into configuring pekwm since I was pretty much set with fluxbox.

Xfce wasn't giving me the key binding control I wanted, so i blinged up cwm to give me the same aethetic -

@vastone -

I know what you mean. I tinker with it every now and then, but never stick with it. Always find my back to fluxbox, fvwm, or i3.

I think it's greatest strength is that it is an excellent DE to train people who are switching from Windows to Linux - just enough familiarity to keep them from going into panic mode. I almost had my brother sold a few years back with an Xubuntu live CD. I think I could actually get him to switch if I could sit down with him in person again.

Feedback & Suggestions / Re: Ubuntu Forums Security Breach!

I am beginning to wonder if that site will ever be back online... I think this may be a veiled attempt at Ubuntu to take back their Forums as their own...  It would definitely be a good time to do so.  The folks that run that now are a bit insane IMO ... too hard ass and in love with themselves

Interesting take on the situation. I have not been over there for a while, when you say the folks that run it are you talking about a new group of mods, or people that do most of the posting?

I black list the nouveau drivers, boot to console, install the nvidia drivers - no smxi.

Any time I update the kernel, I get to do that little song and dance. It was the method to use for slackware and I just kept doing it for debian.

What is the current liquorix kernel version?

When I tried to install the nvidia drivers (from their site) for the 3.10.0 kernel (custom compile) on my debian testing desktop, it was a major fail. I didn't try to install with smxi. I ended up going with the 3.9.9 kernel and nvidia installed fine. It's an older nvidia card, 7-series.

Long story short, I'm thinking nvidia doesn't work too well with newer xorg or kernels.

Nice shot dizzie; is that i3-status bar or conky?

Been experimenting with Xfce sans window decorations. I like the aesthetic of it, but not really worth the hassle. The themerc for Xfce themes isn't as customizable as I had hoped, and the key binding control for window movement is lacking in Xfce (or maybe my Xfce setup/install is a little bit borked):

I ran the dist-upgrade on my HP i3 laptop, intel video, custom compiled 3.9.9 kernel.

No issues to date.

WM Designs and Discussions / Re: Using FLUXBOX as a Window Manager
« on: July 24, 2013, 02:48:44 PM »
What are you trying to do? Are you replacing fluxbox's native panel, or just want to add a pager?

If you just want a pager app, there is netwmpager: http://crunchbanglinux.org/wiki/netwmpager_howto

If you want a launcher there is wbar - https://code.google.com/p/wbar/
That is the default launcher in siduction, has animations like increased icon size and movement.

Adeskbar is another launcher - http://adeskbar.tuxfamily.org/

lxpanel is the only complete panel I know of that is probably still developed. The Xfce panel should have at least partial functionality in fluxbox, or you may still be able to use fluxbox as the window manager for xfce.

edit - The xfce panel appears to work just fine in fluxbox - I was thinking it lost a lot of funtionality. If you're just looking for a pager, you can create a panel that has the xfce pager as the only item.



edit 2 - the xfce logout dialog is what does not work, so you would need to exit from fluxbox.
