I really like sakura... using it exclusively now, VSIDO's default compton handles all of the opacity fine

I see it as a replacement for xfce-terminal

I care not for the drop-down capabilities, is that really a deal killer on terminals?

Not for me; I tried using a drop down terminal a couple times, never really took to it. Some people just love that capability, though.

^ I know that feeling. I'm still using urxvt with spectrwm and i3; although, I seldom use it tabbed.

star-livinia jwm version; live session -



Cleaning up some harddrives; very smooth build, all my hardware recognized OOTB, and a nice set of default apps for jwm - except there doesn't seem to be a text editor. Otherwise, well done ozi.

Edit - text editor is leafpad; get that in the menu ozi.

Edit - 02 - the install is really smooth

my setup is really stripped down...



the photo is by a famous Japanese photographer Takuma Nakahira, a contemporary of Daidō Moriyama. One thing to note is that I tried to set the image to the "visual center" which is slightly higher than center ;-)

For the gradients I used orangered4 - orangered3 and grey20 - grey15...I tried to use X colors as much as possible.

Cinnamon Sid!   8)  Wow, finally got it totally configured.   ???  Back in the 'old days' I'll admit to liking  Gnome2.  Cinnamon is a real close replica!  So yes, still VSIDO, just with Cinnamon 2.6.13.  Installed through Synaptic and it went much smoother!  Today was fun again!

@hudson, great scrot and welcome to VSIDO!  We're really glad to have you.  Love the picture!

Hi Jedi and thanks for the welcome. That's really, really nice...I don't even try to do something so great. I like Cinnamon's whole start button setup for easy access to applications. I used Gnome 2 when I first started with Ubuntu years ago...it used to do a full text index of all my files once a week and slow everything down to a crawl! Or, maybe that was Ubuntu's fault.

@PackRat

bbpager...actually, I wanted to find out suggestions on pagers. bbpager is OK, but the version in the repos doesn't seem to support transparency. To get it to work, I installed wmctrl and put the following two lines in my startup file before exec fluxbox

(sleep 1s && bbpager) &
(sleep 2s && wmctrl -r bbpager -b add,below) &

PackRat and hudson and everyone else who gives a damn...

VSIDO = FluxBox but it has been the same forever, just a cover of glossy things I like

I suggest we take the covers off of FluxBox and see what we can do to make VSIDO and FluxBox rock in different ways

What say you?

RatMan, I am honored for your gifts and kinship. For years now you have done VSIDO and this community a great service I am damned proud of
