please help identifying these programs


Hi there.

I've decided to make the switch to Linux completely and already have a bit of experience.

I came across a screenshot and I am really curious about the programs used, as I think I'd like to use the same ones since I enjoy using terminals. Here is a link:

https://orig00.deviantart.net/1052/f...nd-d8dz4qi.png

I realize that some of them are only displaying information about the system, but would still be interested in knowing which they are. The email client and music player are especially of interest..

I see 7 total, 1-3 on the top and 4-7 on the bottom.

1 - music player?
2 - irc client?
3 - email client?
4 - system info?
5 - system resources?
6 - what is this! color scheme??
7 - system info?

Thank you

top: ncmpc or ncmpcpp if i'm not much mistaken. both frontends to mpd. then some command line irc client. maybe irssi. then a cli mail client, maybe alpine?

bottom: just a terminal colors preview script. those are a dime a dozen and float around everywhere. then, htop as system monitor. then, another terminal color script. then archey or sth similar.

It's probably mutt but I don't use mutt so I can't say for sure. It's definitely not alpine, alpine has a cleaner UI.

left terminal claims bspwm (although it looks like i3wm)

middle bottom is obvious htop.
Below he did a df. than he used scrot to take a screenshot (which indicates something similar as i3wm)

You may look into arch linux repro around 10-14-14.
I do not get the point in displaying 1000 spam emails for a gmail account in top right, but whatever

that's a good start. Thanks.

I think one of them is an Arch-only thing, alsi -l

- Windows Manager : i3-gaps I believe
- system info : Neofetch
- status bar : i3blocks perhaps
- mail client : probably mutt

Might check out cmus for a music player though they aren’t using it. And ranger or midnight commander for a file manager. That is if you like staying in the terminal.

1... 2... 3...
4.. 5a. 5b.. 6.. 7

1 - idk
2 - irssi (I would assume, although not stock)
3 - idk (pine? mutt?)
4 - zilt0id, it kind of says what it is (or not)
5a - htop (just to top half)
5b - $(clear; mount); scrot
6 - ninvaders (ncurses based space invaders, haven't actually used it, so I could be wrong)
7 - idk (but I've seen it a lot in arch users setups)

Although the snarky side of me wants to say a whole lot of terminal emulators.
