Just switched back to XFCE after using KDE since January. XFCE's power manager works better than KDE's for me, the modularity is great, I find the default keyboard shortcuts more logical, and it loads and exits pretty much instantly instead of taking several seconds. I'm using Whisker menu, but with the standard XFCE logo instead of the whisker one. I have compton for compositing, and I've noticed that some screen tearing issues I had with kwin are now gone. The panel on the right is set to stay below other windows using wmctrl. Sometimes it doesn't work at startup for whatever reason, so the text editor button on the bottom panel runs the wmctrl command. I really like that xfce4-terminal comes with drop-down functionality instead of requiring another package like Yakuake or whatever the Gnome one's called. The only thing I miss from KDE is Dolphin's ability to change from normal mode to dual panels mode with a single click, but Thunar's tabs work well enough.

Thanks. I doctored it up a bit in GIMP, but I didn't make it originally. I did add the white panther to the image, though.

Don't download the screenshot. You can download the actual wallpaper I created if you'd like...

http://imagizer.imageshack.com/downl...nningrev20.jpg

It's 1440X900, but enlarges to 1680X1050 without any distortion.

Enjoy.

So as I promised in my last post #post5192709, here I'm with my Fluxbox desktop...
Had to recompile Fluxbox from source with imlib2 enabled so that I can use menu icons other than .xpm extension. I learnt a lot in last couple days.

snapshot3.jpg

A lot of manual work went into it but I love it. I have some queries though if somebody can answer please :-
1. How to enable transparency in gkrellm?
2. Even though I have selected the keep gkrellm below other windows, I can't seem to maximize an application to full screen.Any suggestions?

Regards.

That is a beautiful Fluxbox. It is almost as beautiful as my former Openbox set-up. It almost makes me want to abandon my i3 experiment and go Flux. That does not look like Fluxbox's panel. Is it something else or did you manage to configure the Fluxbox panel to look like that?

Conky. (Insert evil icon.)

Very nice job. You are a WM artist.

There are some people in this thread that mentioned it. Not that it helps much because this thread is so long. It's the invisible theme to make gkrellm transparent. I don't have the link handy but I'll give you mine if you don't find it by searching. As far as number 2, I have no idea why you're seeing that behavior with not being able to maximize other applications. Seems like a weird window manager bug.
