Fluxbox/Openbox - calendar in menu

Posted 08-23-2009 at 04:05 PM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

MOVED: added this to the fluxbox wiki as "Calendar Menu" updates may be posted here or there.

Here is a nifty thing to include a calendar printout in your fluxbox menu. It currently coded in bash and is very crude. The print out only looks best when your menu is left justified and the text is mono spaced. An optional fix for this may be to convert spaces to underscore (not yet implemented).

create a directory ~/.fluxbox/cal and place the attached script...

Daft name for a Linux installation, but I must say I'm quite impressed with it, especially the amount of programs that come with a standard installation. It is based on Ubuntu (what isn't these days?), except it has the OpenBox Window manager. As usual with it being Ubuntu under the hood, it runs as a live cd, but with it being OpenBox it's very fast.

Fluxbox - Terminal Window PC Game Style

Posted 08-22-2009 at 02:26 AM by lumak (Lumak's Guide to Random Things)

MOVED: I added this to the fluxbox wiki under "Category:Configuration howtos" Any changes may go on either. Enjoy.

Warning. I tried this on my much older 32 bit laptop and it didn't respond that quickly to toggling the consoles. I'm guessing that long bit of code for the key command actually takes more processing than I thought.


OK I realized I could make xterm (any terminal?) act like the command console in a FPS game. So here are all the settings...
