Can you tell me what's your gtk theme and xfce theme ?

It would be great if you can give a link to your slackware xfce menu button too.

Thanks you and keep on Slackin'

Thanks! :-) Anyway the gtk theme is called Zukitwo but it's an older version you can find it in here (ftp://ftp.muug.mb.ca/mirror/fedora/l...3.fc17.src.rpm) in order to use though you'll need to install these gtk engines from slackbuilds: gtk-engines-unico, murrine, gtk-engines (to be fair I'm not sure if murrine is really needed).

The xfce theme doesn't really exist I just played around with the settings of the top panel and use compiz as a wm for compositing. Finally the xfce menu button is included in the icon theme faenza, you can find it on slackbuilds, you can set it by right clicking and changing the default icon, just look under locations.

Aything else feel free to ask

While TWM is perfect when you are logged in as root, I found the lack of a status bar, full screen mode and the fact that it crashed a number of applications a bit more than I was prepared to put up with.

You might find that your laptop handles fluxbox just as well (and for a simple WM it's great).

Thanks you for your answer.

I'm on my way to configure my Slack box now. Btw, I like the Faenza icons too.

Been playing around with TWM on an old laptop, rebuilt the desktop based on a .twmrc I found online.

The two icon stacks show open apps yet:

$ free -m
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 983 840 143 0 41 462
-/+ buffers/cache: 336 647
Swap: 2049 0 2049

couldn't get the menu in but that's been re-jigged too.

Thanks for the tip, actually it handles windowmaker too just fine (which is my normal WM of choice). But, I'm having so much fun configuring TWM to do my job that I even started using in on my normal desktop.

Everything works perfectly fine for me here, no applications crashing or anything. I'm using Iconmgr as a handy taskbar; the one thing I really miss is virtual desktops, but I guess I can live without that.

Awesome, awesome!
Maybe we should start sharing our .twmrc's!

Check out vdesk, works very well with twm and it gives you a psuedo virtual desks.

Sounds nice, maybe in the "Linux Desktop" since twm is simple and people using other distros can contribute

rkfb,

Publishing here the configuration files concerning desktop look-and-feel perfectly matches the policy of that thread so it is not a hijacking. On the other hand sharing those files in “Linux – Desktop” section is a great idea as well. As a result we have “two in one”: a link here and a post there. Well done!

I have a question for clod89 or anyone else that runs Xfce 4.10.

How can I remove the white borders on Xfce systray ?

Pic of my actual test in a VM available below.

The image below my systray is the desktop of clod89 and I dunno how he managed to get rid of these.

Confession: I love screenshot threads! Here's another of my 32-bit Xfce desktop here at work, with a few minor changes (new wallpaper, added Application Launcher to bottom panel, with Slackware logo).

Well this is embarrassing, I was messing around with these options but I somehow missed that one.

Thanks you, this did the trick.
