My Christmas desktop: http://pineviewfarm.net/weblog/wp-co...-12-10_500.jpg

The image rotates every 30 minutes from my library of holiday pictures. I keep hoping it will raise my spirits.

It doesn't.

Yes that is the Doom 3 version of Pinky or one of them. The absurdity of the hat still makes me grin.

Speaking of Polybar... I was all set up to try it out, and then I decided I didn't need it. I'm happy with i3's default bar, and for the following, I decided that I had enough information without it:

It's OpenBox with Plank, Stalonetray, and pcmanfm-qt. The font size is at 160dpi, because it's an HTPC. The theme is one that was popular on /r/unixporn a while back: Arc widgets and window decorations, Papirus icons. TMUX theme is oh-my-tmux.

Thanks for the suggestion on the Papirus icons. They look good on my Awesome WM too.

By the way, up until recently I've been using xscreensaver to lock the screen, but I don't like how the unlock screen is very ugly and can't be changed outside of editing the source code, which is frowned upon by the author. I came upon i3lock, which lets you specify an image to display when the screen is locked. A little bit of googling and testing later, I came up with this script, which takes a screenshot, blurs it, adds a lock image and text, and then runs i3lock.

Code:
#!/bin/bash

#
# Creates a blurred image of the current screen and runs i3lock
# Image is resized before blurring to improve speed
# Lock icon and some ideas for the command shamelessly "borrowed" from the
#   i3lock-fancy project: https://github.com/meskarune/i3lock-fancy
#

IMAGE=/home/dan/.local/share/i3lock/current_screenshot.png
LOCK_TEXT="Type password to unlock"
LOCK_IMAGE=/home/dan/.local/share/i3lock/circlelockdark.png
FONT="Noto Sans"
FONTSIZE=28

EFFECT="-scale 35% -blur 5x5 -scale 286%"
scrot $IMAGE
convert $IMAGE $EFFECT $IMAGE
convert $IMAGE $LOCK_IMAGE -gravity center -font "$FONT" -pointsize "$FONTSIZE" \
        -annotate +0+150 "$LOCK_TEXT" -composite $IMAGE
i3lock -i $IMAGE
Of course, edit the image paths to suit your own setup. You can see in the comments that I got the lock icon from the i3lock-fancy project, which I haven't tried but which seems to do basically the same thing as this script, plus more. I attached a screenshot of what the lock screen looks like.

I am also using xautolock now to run this lock script when idle for a specified length of time.

Edit: the script requires ImageMagick, scrot, and i3lock.
