BSD Desktop Thread
 
1 Attachment(s)
Greetings! I thought that it would be interesting to see what type of desktops that we are all running on BSD. Please feel free to display your desktop images in this thread. All BSD users are welcome. I will start. This is OpenBSD 5.1 and XFce 4.8.3. The BSDs are awesome! :)

I also run tend to setup Xfce when configuring FreeBSD for general desktop use. It super quick and simple to setup and provides a nice basic DE, without going overboard. I'd post a screenshot but it looks pretty much the same as yours (but for the default Xfce background), so it wouldn't be that interesting! :P

Edit: FreeBSD 8.3, Xfce 4.8 (is what I have been testing Opera on recently, though I have a FreeBSD 9.0 install as well)

There are too many images to put the all them here, just check: http://deviantart.com/?q=by:vermaden+freebsd

I used Fluxbox on FreeBSD in the past and moved in 2009 if I recall correctly to Openbox.

I use beadm (Boot Environments) [1] on FreeBSD along with automount [2] for automatic media mounting using FreeBSD's devd(8) daemon.

Rest of the setup are: conky/lxpanel/tint2/deadbeef/pymp/opera/chromium/mplayer/geany/mousepad/nautilus/thunar/transmission/galculator/libreoffice/gimp/arandr/scrot/gpicview/feh/evince/...

I will post a screenie in a day or two of my current build on FreeBSD. It is using spectrwm (ex scrotwm) tiling window manager.

I've gone back to using Fluxbox on OpenBSD 5.1 to make the most of my system resources. Fluxbox is nice and fast. :)

Well as promised, here is my FreeBSD 9.0 setup. It has a sorta retro green theme and uses the latest build of Spectrwm WM, compiled from source.

I am using JWM which is VERY lightweight and fast.

nixblog 06-13-2012 05:28 AM

Yeah JWM is a nice lightweight WM, similar to IceWM.

Nice! Would you like to display a screenshot? This is a desktop (screenshot) thread. :)

I hope this is not considered necro-posting, but I thought it better to post my screenshot here than to start a new thread.

After working mostly in console on my FreeBSD box to this point, today I finally got around to setting up my Fluxbox and adding a theme to Firefox to make me feel more at home - you may note some similarity to my Slackware desktops! Old dogs... :)

This is FreeBSD 10, Fluxbox with the Scythe theme from here, and Dark Fox no-logo from the Mozilla themes page.

Today I added TaskWarrior to my FreeBSD machine and set it to sync with my other Slackware machines (the open Tmux window in the screenshot). Now my FreeBSD machine is truly integrated into my workflow and no longer just a learning experience!

I was already feeling right at home with FreeBSD, but this closes the circle nicely!

What happened with the other BSD screenshots thread? o.o
