Thanks! I'm using packages by Ponce built using slackbuild scripts. You can find them here, and instructions on how to install them easily with Sbopkg here.

There's not much to it, LXDE is simply light on resources, and my system was idle while I took that screenshot. I also make sure I have no KDE or Gnome components running and switch off all rc.* scripts that I don't immediately need. Tragically, as soon as I switch on firefox with around 5 tabs and thunderbird, RAM usage surpasses 200MB. Both those programs together eat more RAM than the rest of my system altogether *grrr*

There's one issue though with the line 'own_window_type window'. Usually one would use override to keep conky in place, but that leads to conky vanishing in my LXDE every time I click on the desktop area. Same with the option 'desktop'. 'window' gives an error message here, but at least it works as intended. It may depend on the desktop environment..

@Ahmed,

My setup came fro Alien's and got rebuilt by the time. Lately conky is running with this config, remade after reading this thread. Work good here with XFCE. With compiz I think it should change some setting to not show, in my case, a black background.

Thanks for replaying.

Question system monitoring visualisations?

I wonder how you all add those system monitoring visualisations as a part of the desktop, so that they do not overlay desktop icons and already open windows? I tried opening the widgets, but they overlay icons on the desktop.

I think you mean the program 'conky', which is available at slackbuilds.org

Hi,
I post the second time. My KDE 3.5.10 desktop on Fujitsu-Siemens
http://i1044.photobucket.com/albums/...shot-kde35.jpg
The picture above is the part of the desktop displayed on the notebook display - the picture below the part from external VGA display - virtually displays are set above/below - physically - of course next to the each other. This also for those who don't belive that KDE 3.5.10 can be nicely customized.

Slackware13.1 on a sony laptop:
KDE: http://img842.imageshack.us/i/desktopkd.jpg/

Dark, and kind of simple, but I like it.

XFCE: http://img43.imageshack.us/i/desktopxfce.jpg/
http://img64.imageshack.us/i/desktopxfcewithpanel.jpg/

The background is for Fedora, but I liked it so much that I decided to keep it when I switched my laptop over to slackware13.1 from Fedora10.(this was my last machine to switch over - I'm a full time slacker now )

All my other machines use the Slackware linux background from the KDE pic in XFCE, when I decide to leave the CLI with them.

No problem. I forgot to add: http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Awesome-3-Slackware and João Felipe Santos's slackbuilds
And an interesting (?) alternative way (?) to install it on slackware.

I used Max Miorim's slackbuilds this time because they were more up to date.

(In all cases: recompiling cairo and adding '--enable-xcb' voids your Slackware warranty, just a reminder )
