Hey airtime, welcome to VSIDO!  Glad you finally made it here.  It is good to have you!

Just "drive by" posting as PackRat says...   :D

Pretty much the same, except I have Netflix working natively!  There's a 'How To' posted in the HowTo section...

Nice stiff fellas! 

@jedi, well done with the netflix!

I rarely post because I rarely ever change...

Now I have gone and done it

This may become the new themes for VSIDO in the future

Been playing around a bit with my DE, Found a load of styles from a web site. http://tenr.de/styles/allstyles.php (http://tenr.de/styles/allstyles.php) and have an excellent grouping of styles. zephyr

@zephyr

I have that archive still... When we chose fluxbox and got serious with it, I grabbed  that and picked the best of that group to be the ones that are now the standards in VSIDO

If anyone wants any of those added, just let me know..

Some stylistic changes, theme, icons, Fluxbox styles, etc.  A day of playing with Gtk2 and Gtk3.  And I thought I was going to go to bed early tonight.  Another night below freezing!  Winter has descended upon Northern Maine.  Anyway, this is the Dorian theme, Alpha-3 icon set, and the hydrocyanic Fluxbox style should anyone be interested.

@RatMan

hydrocyanic fluxbox style from the tenr.de collection here (http://tenr.de/styles/searchstyle.php?stylename=hydrocyanic)

I think I just may load all of those as Styles in the next version of VSIDO

That would be a lot of themes; although getting your favorite 10 would be a good idea.

Fluxbox is very customizable, the VSIDO logo wallpaper is awesome, easy to add other styles without searching for a compatible wallpaper. Yea, be cool to add more styles to the next release, or update. By the way, being a noob myself, got a question? I use gksu thunar, simply hand feed these styles into ~/usr/share/fluxbox/styles.  Is this a no-no or correct? Gdebi only works for me on some apps.  It seems to work for me, if there is a better/correct way, appreciate any help. Thanks.  zephyr
Title: Re: October 2014 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on October 05, 2014, 06:10:40 PM
Using thunar to move themes or icon sets to usr areas are fine if you want to have them available for multiple users on your same machine, including the root account. If it is for a single user system, having them in your /home directory is fine.

Your setup looks awesome !!!  :)

Very nice PackRat.  I may have to go back to fluxbox.  I should probably look by myself does fluxbox have anything similar to pipemenus?
Title: Re: October 2014 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on October 10, 2014, 07:09:59 PM
Not directly, but you can use the [include] option in the fluxbox to include information that results from running a script  - like this:  http://darkshed.net/article/dynamic-menus-in-fluxbox (http://darkshed.net/article/dynamic-menus-in-fluxbox)
Another option would be to use dmenu to generate the entry in the fluxbox menu.
Title: Re: October 2014 Screenshots
Post by: statmonkey on October 10, 2014, 09:43:54 PM
Thank you Guru.  Absolutely riveting stuff.  I never knew about include and playing with it as we speak.  I do a lot of pipemenu stuff with openbox.

I am assuming (maybe incorrectly) that you are talking about using alias in Dmenu or is there something else (OK realize there are mountains of things) I don't know about?  Do you do it this way.  I love me some dmenu if I am missing something I don't want that to happen.
Title: Re: October 2014 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on October 11, 2014, 06:07:40 PM
I don't use menus - pipe or otherwise -  much at all actually. Most of what I do is accomplished with a key binding.

dmenu is pretty flexible, I have seen scripts (head to the Arch or Gentoo forums) where dmenu is used in menus for multimedia or web content. I don't code, but have always suspected that the underlying code for an openbox pipemenu is doing something similar.

openbox with dorian gtk3 colorscheme -

Actually there really isn't any coding in putting together a pipe menu, at least not if you don't want to.  Pipe menu's really are built off a standard template using perl or bash. The originals were made about ten years ago and are pretty extensively documented.  I like them because they can be layered and multi-functional.  You can call another process, run it, comeback to the pipemenu, run some more, etc. which I can't get in a single key click setup and I am pretty sure you can use them in dmenu.  I just really haven't figured it out.

I did review the arch stuff on dmenu and scripts/code and found it confusing.  I may revisit that as I can do some pretty neat stuff with dmenu I just need the proper motivation I guess.  You have inspired me to have another crack at it.  Really love your work here and appreciate your sharing it as well as you thoughts.

Oh, on key combo's.  I have another issue.  I often forget them/which keys/etc and I am a bit like a husband travelling with his wife.  I refuse to stop and ask for directions.  :D  I gave up key bindings for that reason.  For some reason I can remember a script name when I can't remember a key binding, I failed miserable at vi for this reason.
Title: Re: October 2014 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on October 12, 2014, 02:37:27 AM
Sorry, not the actual coding for the pipe menu script itself. Coding in openbox must take the output of the script and parse it into a format to display in the menu. Both Arch and Gentoo forums have some pretty clever coders that have put together some scripts - bash and python mostly - and get results displayed in the menu.

Remembering keybindings ???
That's probably why CrunchBang has a list on the desktop via the conky.

Those are just the openbox key bindings for app; then there are the keybindings for jed or emacs - a conky to display all the keybindings for emacs would be quite the undertaking. Of course, it would have to be done in lua and be interactive  .... then again, f*ck conky.

back on topic; lost a bet with my brother - had to modify my desktop wallpaper for the day (curse you Kansas City Royals, but good luck in the World Series anyway):

@PackRat, the green is really nice.  Might have to take a break from the blue!   :D
Man I love GMB!  VastOne your layouts are awesome!  mrpeachy has a new weather script based on data pulled from WeatherUnderground called wun.  I did a fast and loose combination of that script and conkyforecast to get what you see at the bottom left.  Otherwise, pretty much same ole, same ole...

The Cubs are finally on their way to building a team to do the same with the same architects that did it for Boston...

That is when I will smile on Baseball again...

I do like both KC and SF... gonna be a great series..

If SF wins it is pretty much a lock then that my beloved Chicago Blackhawks will win this rear too.. Every other year they have won the cup, following (nearly) in SF's footsteps

Post by: jedi on October 18, 2014, 10:11:41 AM
To say that I'm stunned, honored, proud, and many other superlatives that just don't seem to do justice to how I feel at this honor!!!

From start to finish, including getting everything installed via the vsido-welcome script, as well as a few other 'apps' I install for myself, it took around 35 minutes total to be completely back up and running.  With creating .fsa files of my system, I can now have VSIDO codename:Jedi, back installed from a blank state in less than 7 minutes!  You just can't beat that in a distro.
This is a beautiful new look as well that is extremely easy on the eyes!  I'm loving every minute of it.  (and possibly growing a larger head to boot.  Soon I'll be having trouble walking through doorways!)
Thanks again VastOne, this has been one awesome ride...

(http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/101814a.png) (http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/101814a.php)

Also have a look at these numbers:

Just the default stuff that runs when booting a normal install of VSIDO Jedi!  Yellow is definitely the most frustrating.  I've gone through a couple of green scenes that didn't look bad at all.  Your earlier shots with the green, I thought, looked really great!

What is hard to see in mine is the kernel display in the top panel conky... It is 3.17-1out of Experimental and it is rock solid so far in all my tests... as quiet and less memory/cpu intensive as any kernel I have seen in quite some time
