@lwfitz Nice one - one thought though, switch from xterm to rxvt-unicode and use the blur feature:

Code: [Select]
-blr 5
5-7 on the blurring works well without slowing down the terminal refresh; might clash with fluxbox transparency though.

And now that I'm thinking about it, can the lua functions be written to include blurring so that the conky backgrounds would blur?

WM Designs and Discussions / Re: Using Fvwm as a window manager
« on: March 12, 2013, 12:25:50 PM »
Not a whole lot to say - almost the entire theme/desktop is Fvwm. There is no system tray in Fvwm so I use stalonetray. Mainly because it supports transparency and color gradients if needed. Peksystray and Xysystray also work well but are more limited. All three are swallowed into FvwmButtons more readily that trayer  to create a traditional taskbar in my experience. Xclock provides the clock. The rest is all Fvwm configuration.

Nothing particularly fascinating under the hood; all pretty well documented Fvwm functions.

Use wget with the -c option; from the manpage:

Code: [Select]
-c,  --continue                resume getting a partially-downloaded file.
very handy for large files like iso images in case your bandwidth gets interrupted.

Code: [Select]
wget -c <the file being downloaded>

WM Designs and Discussions / Using Fvwm as a window manager
« on: March 11, 2013, 03:58:38 AM »
Every forum needs a thread about Fvwm so I started one.  :D

Lightweight, incredibly configurable, stable window manager. Desktop is all Fvwm with FvwmPager, FvwmIconMan, stalonetray, and xclock swallowed by FvwmButtons to create the standard xfce/gnome2 type panel. A function defined in the Fvwm configuration files creates a thumbnail for iconified windows instead of the usual icon:

No problem.

As promised, the screenshot. Fluxbox - latest built from git sources, compton, real transparency in urxvt-unicode (requires an .Xdefault setting), tabbed urxvt, and conky in the slit so that maximzed windows do not cover all that useful info:

For vastone - well, anyone really.

pretty much stock i3 config file - the documentation on the i3 site is awesome. Some changes to the default keybindings; I use a fluxbox-fvwm baseline for my key bindings to save on my aging memory.

a non-colored conky that doesn't require the JSON formatting works just fine.

WM Designs and Discussions / Re: Using FLUXBOX as a Window Manager
« on: March 11, 2013, 03:23:31 AM »
After figuring out the transparency of Fluxbox, I was able to turn off Compton...

Booting now with the Liquorix 3.7.0-9 kernel and Fluxbox, I am down to an eve 100 MiB on boot and now claim Fluxbox as my default WM

Now onto figuring out the Slit mess, if I am reading it correctly it is somewhat akin to Conky

Don't know if you have this all figured out yet so I'll post anyway. If you want compositing with real transparency, you can add your compton/xcompmgr script to the $HOME/.fluxbox/startup file - this file is like the openbox autostart.sh file. Fluxbox does not always play nice with compositors though; something about the window name/class conventions issued by fluxbox - I didn't find much of an answer when googling the issue. I have it working and will post a scrot.

The slit in fluxbox is a dock. Any app that can be docked can reside in the slit, and there is a $HOME/.fluxbox/slitlist file where apps can be defined to automatically dock in the slit. If you use a one line conky like myself (any conky will do this) change own_window_type to dock and it will park in the slit and always - by default anyway - be above maximized windows and remain visible. Note that with own_window_type set to dock, the x,y displacement of the conky window is ignored, it goes where the dock/slit is set.

For creating fluxbox themes, I like to go to box-look.org and get the Tin Black and Earl themes. They are nice looking in their own right, and make a good base to start tinkering with.
