I tried without the -z argument like you had and it worked. Thanks!

Does that mean that the filename should be "grayblack.tar"?

Maybe so. Using "tar -xf" worked though.

No, newer versions of tar autodetect the compression, so the compression parameters are not needed when extracting an archive.

Slackware 13.1 KDE with conky running, and a Konsole, No I don't run as root normally.
Name on the konsole window isn't my real name, by the way, but the desktop look and .conkyrc files for that and my main user account are the same.

Slackware 13.37 running wmii 3.9.2 sort of busy http://gallery.slackadelic.com/album..._of_busy_0.png and not busy http://gallery.slackadelic.com/album...ii_clean_1.png

The second is scaled down so gallery.slackadelic would accept it (2MB file size limit).

The background can be found here: http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper/d...16/torcal.html

Never tried wmii, is it able to resize tiles, so that it can look like this:
Code:
+----------------------+-----------+
|                      |           |
|                      |           |
|                      +-----------+
|                      |           |
|                      |           |
|                      |           |
|                      |           |
|                      |           |
+----------------------+-----------+
I am currently searching for something lighter than Xmonad (the needed Haskell compiler, ghc, currently takes 548MB disk-space), but with the same functionality (and easy to customize).

Maybe scrotwm? Or even dwm on which xmonad was based on (as a concept) initially.

Do you know if they can resize the tiles in the style I want? If i look at screenshots of those I never saw tiles with different sizes.

Thanks for that link, seems that the moveresize patch is what I want, I will give that a try.

With dwm if you use the moveresize feature on a tiled window it will be converted into a floating window. You can alter the position of the split between the main window and the stack area, but there is no way to alter the position of the splits in the stack on the right (It's divided evenly). I3 does a much better job of allowing you to manually position and size tiles, dwm is more about automatic placement.


I love dwm, but I tend to use it only with a single tile per workspace - monocle layout - and perhaps a number of floating windows. Most apps really weren't written to be tiled and once you have more than a couple of tiles, the size gets so small that they become impractical to use.
