Gone back to using openbox&tint2. No conky at the moment. I've got a script running every 2 hours that picks a random wallpaper out of a folder, and it's hard to make conky look good on every wallpaper.

Just for fun, this is what I'm running this very instant:

Window Maker with Tint2 on Slackware 13.1.

I've got a QEMU window open running Slackware 13.37 with KDE. How's that for recursion?

Regards,

Thumbs up xfce4 single panel

As a native reader of English, it is natural for me to start at the top left corner and proceed from left to right: so I start with my xfce start menu, and then proceed with four divisions of my single panel, the first contains icons that launch the apps I frequent most; the second has a small triangle dropdown list of every window opened, the wicd connection manager, and the power level (both handy on laptop); the third division contains the date and time because I'm helpless in this department, and the last division contains icons to adjust volume, eject cd, view/empty trash, and logout:

xfce4-desktop-layout.jpg

My single panel is there in every workspace and doesn't turn invisible when unused (this just annoys me when I want to click something near it and it pops up instead of what I wanted to click on)... If I don't want to see it I just take my app to full screen mode...

Love Slackware + XFCE... Thanks all you subgeniuses

my latest desktop. fluxbox, as usual, but i changed some important things. i took advantage of the 256 colors that urxvt has to recolor my terminal to a more pleasant color scheme, as well as customizing the prompt to my liking. i added a universal window transparency so that my gtk+ windows match my urxvt windows, and did away with titlebars completely, keeping only tabs on the bottom, and close, maximize, and minimize are controlled by custom keyboard shortcuts. i might move them to another spot [the tabs], still havent decided. im really happy with how it turned out though.

trademark91, I don't quite know you yet, but judging by the amount of posts you've made, something tells me you're a perfectionist (at least with desktops) and when you finish this "ultimate" desktop, you will make another. ^^

btw: thank you for the conky text file
