Yes, arclance has a really great weather program!  Even with all the changes of the last 3 years or so, he hasn't had to modify anything!  With the update to Conky 1.10.x, I did have to change a '0' to a '1' in the conkyrc file, so it still had nothing to do with arclance's code!

Still working on colors...

Mate is a bit buggy; took it off the other computer (Debian Testing) since xfce is better and already installed. Give the cutting edge Mate a spin on VSIDO instead.

It's a nice piece of work. Right now, I'm trying to locate an old script I used to get current conditions only and add it to the conkyrc. Unfortunalely, inxi -W in a conkyrc adds the color codes with the text.

It's has a key binding. I bring up the weather and read the forecast (same with the tao). Another key binding kills all instances of conky and restarts the system information conky. Easy peasy.

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.

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

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.

Post by: VastOne on July 30, 2015, 09:30:49 PM
VSIDO default OOTB runs two instances of tint2... the systray and the panel/launcher/taskbar

Not sure how much you have looked into the tint2 launchers hudson, but there is a VSIDO custom launch script that uses xdotool and wmctrl to have the panel/launcher/taskbar work just like cairo dock did... it effectively iconifies everything clicked so that multiple instances are not opened ... This same launch script is used on FluxBox menu items as well

ToZ helped with that script that you can read about here (http://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=6168&p=1)

Just what is it about Fluxbox?  Like I said, I liked Cinnamon, BUT, it is no Fluxbox!  Fluxbox just makes me feel like I have so much more control.  I don't care about mem useage statistics, or cpu usage anymore as Linux has handily made a non-issue of it.  I've got a quad core i7 with 16Gbs of RAM and a 2Gb Nvidia video card in my lappy!  I could run KDE Plasma if I really wanted to.  Thing is, Fluxbox just gives me more freedom to make it how I want it!  And as far as I'm concerned, it has a serious BLING ability as well...

That's it. The *nix community is highly concerned for old computers and extending their lives as much as possible. Which is really good. But when the time for a new machine comes. Man, who can say KDE is heavy and slow!!! The whole system with plenty of stuff installed (no restrictions) takes around 12 GB in / and RAM is in the 500 MB range, but can be easily rounded down to circa 330 MB. That still sounds like a lot for a 16 Gigs machine? No it's not and It flies. Literally. I never managed to pass 50% of CPU or RAM load with a KDE system in my current machine (AMD FX-8350 Eight-Core @ 4.295GHz, 16 GB RAM). Whatever I do. And I really tried to stress it. (I'm not a video editor whatsoever)  :D

Clean and tidy. Love it.

Being a Fluxbox and OpenBox nut I haven't put my hands on BlackBox yet. That should be fixed.

@jedi - I don't know why, but personally I can't take Cinnamon/Gnome/Mate/Xfce...I think I don't really like desktops. And I'm use to popping up the menu anywhere on the screen. Maybe it all boils down to what you're use to.
