Yeah the typography in that desktop is absolutely schweet.

Well thank both of you! I'm out right now, and probably won't have time to upload my configs until after work tomorrow, but I'll send you the configs as soon as I can. And Dugan, thanks for the typography compliment, I followed your font guide

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.

This doesn't exactly look cool, but it will be my setup for the foreseeable future:

http://duganchen.ca/wordpress/wp-con...x800_scrot.png
  • Compiz Fusion (as a standalone window manager)
  • xferm4
  • xfce4-panel
  • compiz-boxmenu
  • conky

I decided to finally move to Compiz after learning how to make it not wreck my video playback ("unredirect fullscreen windows"). Its keyboard shortcuts and configurability are as good as on OpenBox, and being able to get a different wallpaper on each desktop is a nice feature.

The xfce4-panel's logout option doesn't work if you're not actually running Xfce, and it can't be removed from the xfce menu, so I removed the xfce menu from the panel. None of the xfce4-panel's clocks look good with transparency, so I removed them and replaced them with Conky.

Gmrun is hotkeyed to ALT-F2, and Scrot is hotkeyed to PrtSc.

The Xfce components are from 4.8.

Mine isn't particularly nice (especially with apps running) but it's very functional.

i3wm 4.0.1
i3bar + conky

dugan, i ran compiz-fusion as a standalone for quite some time, i have to say after a while it gets bothersome. i had issues with several apps not functioning at all due to the compositing, and thats actually the reason i switched over to the *box wm's. i would be curious to see if those issues have gone away in recent months however. (i think ill probably test it out in a few days)

here are the old screenshots from when i ran it:

You're right, trademark. Compiz didn't last long; the last straw came when I couldn't use Blender because Compiz was intercepting some of the mouse sequences.

This is my new desktop (Xmonad + tint2):

http://duganchen.ca/wordpress/wp-con...1200_scrot.png

Wallpaper is from here:

http://konachan.com/post/show/71231

The terminal is rxvt-unicode built with 256-color and libAfterImage support (neither of which are enabled by the SBo SlackBuild).

How do you do to only keep the "close" button on the window bar? Your label, windowtitle, grip e.t.c. is gone... It looks awesome that way!

Well, after years of Gentoo and (C)LFS, I finally got around to trying Slackware. Now all five of my machines are Slackware64-13.37 machines. Only my main box has a WM though, so I didn't include screenshots of the other four.

Slackware64-13.37, Openbox-3.5.0, pyPanel along the bottom, netwmpager near the bottom, wbar to the left, and Conky on the right....

Been a while

Well, it sure has been a while since I've checked the forums on LQ. You can say that I've been slackin' off.

Thought I'd share my openbox deskshot on slackware 14.0 64 bit-multilib (thanks alienbob)


http://www.slackmagic.com/uploads//f...c_display0.png


Here's are the apps on the screenshot:
spotify (haven't signed up til yesterday even though I've heard of it for a long time - fills my music void nicely - Thanks KaMii
urxvt terminals (works nicely with the way I've got my openbox keybindings set up)
screen (can't live without it - EVER)
irssi (running on linode server)
mocp (console audio player)
nitrogen (wallpaper setter)
conky (who doesn't know conky?)
gkrellm (local and linode server)

As you can see I don't like a taskbar (for those who need one, tint2 does a very nice job) - I prefer key bindings to keep things simple and quick.

Enjoy.
