That's quite impressive and maybe just a few more hops away from infinite recursion.

Yes, since it works well with GTK2 and GTK3.

Monitoring z/VM

As I can't install Slackware natively on my work laptop (damn you Windows-only full disk encryption suite!) I have a VirtualBox VM running Slackware 14 for my system performance monitoring using a console-only session, tmux and ssh connections to IUCV terminal servers running hyptop. It shows performance for all currently logged-on z/VM virtual Linux guests, one pane per-LPAR.

i'm back on slack! ~er, only kind of. just in virtualbox for now. might chroot a slack onto metal once 14.1 is out. but for now...

http://ks392457.kimsufi.com/stuff/sc...1310302329.png

not long after installation to vm. have only made minor cosmetic changes, and new wm.

made the terminals dark with light text and removed scrollbars in .Xresources and removed scrollbars, for all terms (incase i start an xterm, or install something other than rxvt), with
Code:
*background: #222222
*foreground: #dddddd
*scrollBar: false
grabbed the spectrwm for slack 14 from slackbuilds.org, made a /src dir with permissive permissions for use as my build dir, and did the same with dmenu. hit problem with tmux, will sort that later.

made some minor tweaks, changed from Mod1 to Mod4 to use my windows modifier key (make's sense, right?).
made the bar and window outline colours a nudge towards how they were in the early alpha debian and arch versions of rowan witch and my unreleased "slackwitch".
had a little poke to see if one of my tiny bitmap fonts would work for the bar font... no joy with the .otb file directly in /usr/share/fonts. will sort that later.

next, i plan to see how small a gui slack install i can do. as i recall, i managed in the 900mb range comfortably with slack 13.37. maybe even in the 700 range... although, not sure if that was with gui. aim high, they say. so i'll aim for something i can squish to a mere 200mb.

Slackware64-14.1 RC3 running a patched KDE to allow 4 different wallpapers on each side of the compiz window manager cube. Nothing special or different than what I had before, but I have to admit I am surprised that compiz still compiles and works. It has had no major development on the 0.8 branch in years, only band-aid patches, yet it still works.

Why do you use the stock Windows 7 wallpaper on KDE ?

You like to trick people into the fact that you use MS Windows ? (this is what ppl tells you, if you show off a KDE stock install)

I use that side for my Windows Virtual Machines. School forces me to conform to a certain degree.

Ah I see.

I've tought about a VM but my laptop would not handle the load (MS Visual Studio is quite heavy you know...)

Hi, just out of curiosity, why do you prefer compiz over kwin?

Well honestly at this point I guess I would have to say mostly preference. I have used it for so many years I know how to tweak it exactly to my liking. And even though I think the project is dying, I find it to he much quicker and "snappier" than kwin, plus it has more features than kwin. I also like that I can use it as a drop in window manager on numerous other desktop environments. In the end though I don't think its superior to kwin or vice versa, its just what I prefer.

I have to admit, there are some great screenshots posted in here. I might revamp my desktop again this weekend with some new ideas.

Here's my most recent one from august 2013:

slackware 14.0 x86_64 - multilib
openbox 3.5.0
