On another note I just found out that i can hide the title bar of maximized windows in XFCE - freed another bit of screen real estate.

Re: image viewers

I also have spent a fair bit of time trying different ones, including gwenview, geeqie and XnViewMP.
All of them either annoyed me in some minor way or were missing features (e.g. geeqie was a favourite but no easy way to crop pictures).

I have now settled on an older version of gthumb (older as the newer versions switched to Client-Side Decorations, which didn't play nicely with xfce4-windowck-plugin).

If anyone is interested here is a slackbuild that will download gthumb-3.2.8 along with a patch to make the arrow keys move to the next image in both browser view and single-image view:

https://github.com/Loomx/Git/tree/ma...kbuilds/gthumb

Edit: ...and it has no dependencies.

Many thanks for that.
In the past I tried gThumb and liked it, but couldn't find a way to prevent it from caching thumbnails.
Using your script it built and installed, but when I tried to fire it up it returned this error,

Quote:
(gthumb:5842): GLib-GIO-ERROR **: 08:00:31.597: Settings schema 'org.gnome.gthumb.browser' is not installed
I don't know what that means... but it was worth the try.
Thanks, again.

Oh, agreed, I don't care one bit for the "new" gThumb user interface. Very unattractive. Looks like it was designed for the dumbed down win10 crowd.

Edit in: Using sbopkg I just built and installed gThumb-3.45. It works, but, wow, is it ugly.


Edit it: gThumb has been uninstalled. XnView MP is still, IMHO, the best, i.e., most capable viewer for Linux. If XnView can't do it, then it is time to open the image in The Gimp.

Pulse Audio

I'd like to remove / disable pulse audio (including the xfce4 pulse audio plugin) but I'd like to make sure I can still control volume levels via alsa mixer and have some kind of volume icon on my xfce4 panel.

Has anyone configured xfce4 audio without pulse? In WMs like spectrwm, I just use a bash script and set the keybindings in the config. In openbox, I've used volumeicon too for eyecandy. Will that work in xfce4?

This is exactly what I do on my LXDE setup, I imagine it can't be much different for Xfce. Pulse is disabled and I just use ALSA, as well as alsaequal to control the EQ levels. I also use volumeicon for the taskbar [volumeicon works nicely in Xfce too, I use it on my primary machine].

I disabled Pulse via:

1) Comment these lines in asound.conf:

Code:
pcm.default pulse
ctl.default pulse
2) Append these lines to /etc/pulse/default.pa:

Code:
load-module module-alsa-sink device=dmix
load-module module-alsa-source device=dsnoop
3) Keep this line in /etc/pulse/client.conf:

Code:
autospawn = yes
Then just install/use alsaequal. It may be worth going through dmix so that you can use two or more simultaneous audio streams [if you can't already with ALSA]. For instance, asound.rc for my setup looks like this:

Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
}

ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
}

 ctl.equal {
    type equal;
    }

    pcm.plugequal {
      type equal;
      slave.pcm "plug:dmix";
      }

    pcm.!default {
      type plug;
      slave.pcm plugequal;
      }

Nice work on this setup, very thorough. Plus I haven't used alsaequal so I'm interested to give it go. Thanks for the suggestions.

To be picky the settings listed by Lysander666 in post #82 neither disable nor remove pulseaudio.

Rather, they allow to run alsa directly and pulse audio (using the alsa sink in source and an alsa mixer as mixer) without interfering with each other, in other words not stepping on each other's toes.

But pulseaudio can stay installed and still used on demand (e.g. by an application configured to use it as audio back end), just letting /etc/rc.d/rc.pulseaudio non executable

This is the default setting in slint64-14.2.1 as it allows e.g. to run at the same time an audio screen reader like speakup (on the console), or Orca (in a graphical environment) Firefox with a Youtube video and other audio apps like vlc, parole, whatever. But we don't ship alsaequal as both pavucontrol and alsamixer can be used, thus we don't provide a default .asoundrc in /etc/skel.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. Disabling pulse will be fine for now. If it continues to lurk on my system that's alright. In my case, I think xfce4 is the only thing currently using pulse.

Didier, I may have even got those settings from you - thanks for helping me understand them a bit better.

File / directories size

Does anyone here knows a nice add-on or standalone software to show in XFCE files/dirs size occupation ?
Something like a file size view in Konqueror, but I removed KDE from my system.

Xdiskusage looks quite nice, thanks. The du option is also usable, but only in CLI.
