Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Freshly installed Devuan Beowulf LXQt via debootstrap. smile

LXQt core installed (without recommends) to avoid pulling in pulseaudio.
Installed alsa-utils and volumeicon-alsa for sound and volume control; removed the native volume icon from the panel and am autostarting volumeicon on the panel for volume control.
QMMP music player to keep things Qt and light.
First time trying the Falkon browser...seems okay for now.

Still have to get things set up like I want.

Thanks!  Dark themes are great looking, also good for eye strain looking at a desktop for a while. Normally don't use wallpaper but posting a scrot is a little different. smile

The conky is something I like to play around with, was curious if it would pick up all 16 cores of a Ryzen 2700X which it does. Surprised!

cheers

Thanks for the link! cool

Awesome screenie too, love Fluxbox!


This link for Fluxbox styles has been around for quite a while, has been a great source for styles. Please disregard if this is old news for you! smile

Y/w zephyr, I started to love Fluxbox with all my modest potential. I've been a while with Openbox that is greatest stack WM, but Fluxbox to me seems a bit more potential, more features, more lighter on resources, more lighter on actions. So why should i miss this opportunity to use it both in parallel?

Thanks for the link aswell, no isn't new i have seen before, but been looking for it since a few days without finding anywhere. I was wasting my time mostly @ box-look not too pleased. tenr.de looks a completed ones. Very professional, i can use their themes for my enjoyment frequently.

Thanks for your feedback and congrat for your warehouse of distros. We share a lot in common. smile
Best Regards!

Fluxbox and Openbox both came from Blackbox from what I understand, similarities are quite noticeable but distinctively different.    Fluxbox is a bit faster and easier on resources, VSIDO was my first real encounter and really most sophisticated of the lot. CROWZ like Star is very minimalistic and simple, making it so everything just works OOTB without the bloat. 

The fluxmenu gui can be a little tricky not to delete entries if trying to correct an entry. Very close gui to the obmenu and a tad different.

The init file can be easily corrupted, careful with modifying it, learned the hard way but good to back it up just in case. CROWZ use tint2 instead of fbpanel, gives it a little different look and behavior. The init file in /home/user/.fluxbox is the heart of the Fluxbox wm and much tweaking can be done there. 

Cheers and thanks so much for the kind compliments! smile

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

@zephyr thanks for your review to both WM's. I'm a bit aware of history of those. I know Openbox since #!. I'm not denying that I didn't know enough about Fluxbox, but looking at PackRat's scrots intrigued me a lot about Fluxbox.

Always wanted to do something for Flux, but in the end I was never satisfied. And so back to Openbox. Currently i took it more seriously so now I'm with both feets on Fluxbox.

I also have used a lot tile like spectrwm or herbstluftwm. I had so much fun tinkering those two aswell. Those are the lighter ones after dwm.

Agree Fluxbox is more easy than complex xml of Openbox, However, I had used to adjust xml of Openbox very easy with a simple text editor or nano. Yeah, Fluxbox is a lot more easy to config, each setting is separated as a text so it's just fine.

I love tweaking the menu, i just did a simple ones right now (see below), haven't had any issue till now, i always backup before i start tweaking in case anything stall.

Also i love to play with init, i find it very simple even on this one hadn't any concern so far, maybe because i'm not doing anything crazy but i like to explore with init's of others just to check what can i do.

I don't like to use other toolbars on Fluxbox, if i want to check or use toolbars, i'll go for Tint2+Openbox or PekWM+fbpanel or other couples
I like to have Fluxbox raw in his way.

Y\W and thanks so much for your advice smile

@Ogis1975 Thanks bro smile

Just some other tweaks, early i used only top rounded, Now top and bottom seems better roundcorners.

menu.roundCorners:  TopRight TopLeft BottomRight BottomLeft

Also i like having pseudoTtansparency active, so i have those fake transparent on title bar or rootmenu.

session.forcePseudoTransparency:	true

Apps used: rxvt-unicode+tmux, feh, deadbeef. I use a few xero's codes, he's really some kind of genius.

Best regards!
