^ Thanks for the December thread setup, I appreciate it Mr RatMan

Nice wintry Flux setup with some really good ambient tunes by Max Corbacho playing on GMB

@lwfitz - nice; did you build cinnamon from git?

small change; added some volume controls to the fvwm panel -

@PackRat

Thanks, no I cheated and just got the necessary .debs from the Debian site. Probably wouldve been better to build from source.

Post by: PackRat on December 03, 2014, 01:08:18 PM
I didn't realize debian had them. I wonder if it would be possible to apt pin the cinnamon desktop and add the Linux Mint repos? Just thinking out loud here, my oldest uses my linux computers every now and again and likes some bling.
Title: Re: December 2014 Screenshots
Post by: lwfitz on December 04, 2014, 03:11:58 AM
I dont think you would want Mints repo's since they are on testing but you could install cinnamon and it should stay updated just fine since its in the repo's already
Title: Re: December 2014 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on December 04, 2014, 08:27:58 PM
^ That's for sure. I got E18 using the Sparky Linux repos but that had no gnome dependencies etc ...

back on topic - dwm; I try to like this window manager, but just never get attached to it. Probably because tabbed windows in fluxbox and i3 are some much better.

Thanks, jedi. BTW, I want to ask you about a conky, but in the adequate section.  ;)

So true. I was a dedicated fvwm user then tried fluxbox to experiment with the tabbed windows. Go back to fvwm for about a week; then right back to fluxbox.

Nothing spectacular - fvwm:

(http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/newpic0.png) (http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/newpic0.php)

Came across an interesting app though - xcal. Never heard of it before today, but wanted to find an app to display the date that could be swallowed by FvwmButtons into the panel. Found xcal in the repos; nice little app that is an interactive calendar with an internal notepad and can be set up with alarms. Left click on the calendar pops up the month long calender. Mouse click on the little box on the left brings up the memo pad.

Kind of handy, no dependencies that aren't already installed.

edit - modified the clock to be digital, fixed my weather (fuck) conky -

Post by: PackRat on December 09, 2014, 12:23:09 AM
The tall thing at left is the panel I built with FvwmButtons - its FvwmPager, launcher buttons, FvwmIconManager, stalonetray, xclock, volume controls, and xcal.

xcal is just the one-line date app at the bottom; mouse clicks bring up the full calendar or memo pad.

xcal on fluxbox -

I was looking at using xcalendar - full month calendar along the lines of xclock; but it has apparently fallen by the wayside. Wouldn't compile.

Post by: jedi on December 11, 2014, 07:50:36 AM
Yeah, I mention it's a bit of a memory hog above.  Common for newly released Kernel's.  As far as no apps running, that isn't entirely true.  I'm running PlexMediaServer so all the computers/tablets in the house can utilize the music and video library on the secondary hdd.  Also running a couple of other items in the background as well.  I figure with 16Gb's of RAM, I'm not stretching anything to thin!

Did some rearranging, and a new background.  Nothing special...

If it is tint2, I would like to borrow it as well. He's still using Cinnamon so I figured it was the gnome panel.

Sorry for the delayed response VastOne. PackRat is correct, it is Cinnamon but I think a similar tint2 would be fairly easy.

Nah, just messing about with a full length tint2 config.  I can free up some screen real estate by doing it that way, so I may just stick with it!  I have posted the config in the Tint2 configs thread that started this conversation...

Messing around this morning instead of cutting up the dead fall out back. Finished setting up VSIDO desktop as an nfs and ftp server -

VSIDO nfs client -

Windows 8 ftp client -
(http://en.zimagez.com/miniature/muntitled.png) (http://en.zimagez.com/zimage/muntitled.php)

pretty sure I can stream that music from the ftp server directly; wasn't happening today. Next time I need to dodge some chores, I'll figure it out  :D
Title: Re: December 2014 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on December 27, 2014, 06:38:21 PM
Windows is very weird (IMO) when it comes to allowing somethings to stream and/or play... My son has several movies and albums on 2 Windows machines (Don't Ask!!!) that will not show up on Smart TV's DLNA services that does see the connection fine but just does not see other videos (about 1 in 3 not seen)

I can put the exact same videos on my Plex server and they show up on the Smart TV DLNA perfectly and they also will be seen and play no issues on a WDTV device too

So I think Windows is inhibited by either Codec or licensing or even a Windows Media Player setup issue that you may want to at least be aware of
Title: Re: December 2014 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on December 27, 2014, 07:35:00 PM
I figured it had to be something on the Windows side of things to allow it - or get media player to work across ftp.
