a quick shot of spectrwm on vsido -

(http://s21.postimg.org/rtryvqc9v/July_1372964818_1366x768.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/rtryvqc9v/)

Was messing around today trying to replace xfwm4 with spectrwm (like it can be done with Xmonad) to get tiling in xfce4 - basically something to do on a (thunder) stormy day. No joy; obviously missed some reconfiguration steps. Have to move it to the back burner for now.

edit - added some region padding:

Kate Beckinsale had a talented actor Dad, Richard, who I remember from the great BBC 'Porridge' series in the 70's;

However, I'm not the artist.  All of this work was done by others and I just copied it and decorated my desktop with it.  Just change some colors and voilĂ !  Though I did forget your contribution via the great gmusicbrowser!  So here's a shot with it included...

working on some eye candy - e17 on VSIDO:

(http://t.imgbox.com/adkRVPh9.jpg) (http://imgbox.com/adkRVPh9)

default theme isn't too bad; probably just go with it for now.
Title: Re: July 2013 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on July 10, 2013, 06:48:56 PM
^ Nice... Does e17 require a lot of resources?
Title: Re: July 2013 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on July 10, 2013, 07:06:30 PM
No, I'll get conky set up later.

It's always been pitched as a low resource window manager; however, up until recently it has always been unstable. I would get seg faults on a regular basis with the 0.16 versions. Lowrider at #! claims the 0.17 (first stable release) versions are good so I'm taking a look.

I've always liked it since it is very similar to fvwm (the original enlightenment project was derived/forked from fvwm, I believe).

Besides the instability, the lack of themes (they were all glassy so little variety) and the difficulty of creating your own theme have really held it back. IMO Xfce (another fvwm derivative, I think) has really surpassed it in any functional and aesthetic sense without hogging the resources.

edit - add conky to startup apps:

(http://s23.postimg.org/mb47xbtc7/July_1373501347_1366x768.jpg) (http://postimg.org/image/mb47xbtc7/)

e17 uses it's compositor by default; conky made transparent with argb settings.
Title: Re: July 2013 Screenshots
Post by: jst_joe on July 12, 2013, 02:11:16 AM
I started this as a simple cutout type background.
The more I looked at it...
I realized if your point of focus is the top of the letters, it appears inset in the background.
However if your point of focus is the bottom of the letters it appears to be sitting on top of the background.
Is it just me?

How is that kernel running for you? I had some issues when I tried to compile my own - couldn't build some drivers against it - don't know if I hosed something, or there are some changes to the kernel I'll need to resolve (drivers for my internal SD card reader, and nvidia video card).

back on topic - added some bling:

I'm back (to cause havoc and terror!)


Starting out small... Fresh installed vsido on my mini, with i3 as my wm of choice :)
And very nice to finally get a 32bit iso VastOne, big thanks for that mate :)

Extremely well, and fast as always (blame i3?), even with a Atom 1.5Ghz CPU with 2 threads. Did some "hardware rape test" (read: flash, youtube, and xvid) and no problems. Now I just need to get the special keys and webcam working, but thats a minor issue, something to tinker with hehe :)


Thanks again for the 32bit "offspring", I love it :)
Title: Re: July 2013 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on July 26, 2013, 07:08:39 PM
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):

@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.

@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.

Nahhhh PackRat!  VastOne is right.  Obviously influenced by dizzie!  I was just playing around, and am still too enamored of Fluxbox to let it go.  I saw a shot of dizzie's and after a chat on IRC decided to give pekwm a go.
