Now, this is cool. Could you share the whole code of this? I'd like to to something similar.

It's actually visible in the screenshot. Here it is again, I haven't worked on it since then though:

#!/bin/sh

play() {
   foot -e ffplay -nodisp "$@"
}
while : ; do
   channel=$(
   whiptail --nocancel --notags --title "My Crappy Radio Player (text)" --menu "Select channel" 16 100 9 \

      "3" "Symphonic Metal!" \
      "4" "Alternative Rock!" \
      "5" "Grunge Rock!" \
      "6" "Classic Rock!" \
      "7" "Exit" 3>&2 2>&1 1>&3
   )
   case "$channel" in
      1) play https://kathy.torontocast.com:2800/ ;;
      2) play http://23.237.150.98:8512/ ;;
      3) play https://bob.hoerradar.de/radiobob-symphmetal-mp3-hq ;;
      4) play https://ad-im-cmg.streamguys1.com/atl971hd2/atl971hd2-sgplayer-aac ;;
      5) play http://bigrradio.cdnstream1.com/5200_48 ;;
      6) play http://oom-cmg.streamguys1.com/orl989/orl989-sgplayer-aac ;;
      7) exit
   esac
done
exit

That uses whiptail but that can be replaced by dialog with no other changes if you prefer that.

EDIT: for Devuan replace foot with x-terminal-emulator, which should work in all systems regardless of the preferred terminal.

And here's a dwm scrot to stay on topic:

I've done plenty of patching and ricing and tinkering in the past, but eventually I found I was happiest and most productive with vanilla. It does have slstatus running with date and time though, it's just that the screenshoting program was on monitor #2 so this wasn't the monitor in focus. And I like having a systray for a couple of items I occasionally use, so I usually do the systray patch. Not much else. Picom for terminal transparency so I can see the pretty wallpapers. I like your setup though - nice colors, nice layout, very pleasant and comfortable looking. I don't know why you would spend your time trying so many other desktops and wm's when you have something so nice already.

I love my little flameshot systray button. I'm not much of a suckless purist, in fact I abhor st and surf, but nearly everything about vanilla dwm is perfect for the way I work.

attachaside is for people whose brains are backward.

You better know that I'm going to crappin' fork your crappy fork of My Crappy Radio Player... wink

I've already made some changes to the code to suit my personal taste; such as, changing it from whiptail to dialog, changing the terminal to xterm and having xterm automatically iconified when it opens to play a radio station.

Why not use x-terminal-emulator instead? That way it will use whatever emulator is set as the default alternative. Some people don't like xterm and it won't even be installed in some systems.

Well, because there are a few people who like MiyoLinux (and the crappy stuff I offer), but they don't use Devuan/Debian. Plus, xterm can be made quite beautiful with a little bit'a .Xresources. wink

Thanks for doing what you did HoaS...I've never tried building a terminal-based app. You made it easy. smile

Better idea, instead of xterm, most people should use sakura.

right clicking while sakura is open, gives you the only other options people really use:

Options gives you quite a few, but go to  Options and  then more you can get the scrollbar back . smile

And before options, after just right clicking, copy, paste and exit are already there as well as full screen.

Ignore if you wish, but of all the lightweight terminal emulators, sakura is very much what i would consider, the jwm of terminal emulators.

Very light, but has most of the functionality I think is needed, without sucking a huge crapton of resources for no reason.

lol. No.

Firstly, sakura is so shit that it isn't even available from the official Arch repositories. Secondly, the configuration options are far too minimal — it's not even possible to set the complete colourscheme from those stupid menus, only a limited selection of pre-set themes are available and they're all rubbish. And thirdly it's a complete bloat monster.

Look:

20230205-09h56m59s-grim.png

So sakura's using five times as much RAM compared to either xterm or foot (my preferences for X and Wayland, respectively). Seems to me that it is indeed "sucking a huge crapton of resources for no reason".

Anyway I prefer xterm because it's the emulator supplied for the OpenBSD base system and so benefits from their extensive security audits. No other terminal emulator is formally audited in this way.

And please provide a screenshot of your desktop when posting in this thread. Your flagrant violation of thread topics and multiple attempts to derail any thread in which you post really is getting on my tits.

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Why would a new distro that strives to be "simple", "clean", and to "eliminate legacy cruft" use gnome I wonder?

Musl would be nice except Void's been doing it for years so we already know there's a bunch of important programs that won't work right with it. dinit is a very nice touch.

Chimera FAQ wrote:

Why choose GNOME as the default desktop?

There are two major desktops that provide a properly functional Wayland implementation, and that is GNOME and KDE. Compared to KDE, GNOME is much smaller and simpler to build (and less time/resource-consuming), and its Wayland support feels more stable. Additionally, it has consistent and well-defined UX. GNOME is also more portable than KDE, primarily due to relying on WebKit rather than a Chromium derivative as its web browser engine of choice. The founder of Chimera also uses GNOME as their daily driver.

Other desktops usually do not meet the Wayland requirement, and tend to have UI/UX that is way more all over the place. Simpler WMs and compositors also tend to be much more of a “do it yourself” thing, and tend to target niches that only suit a relatively small number of people (e.g. tiling). The default desktop in Chimera should be comprehensive and unassuming.

Wayland is simpler than X so that choice is obvious.

There are ways to run glibc-based programs in Alpine (and hence Chimera):

It's lovely. Most of the features offered by systemd but much more modular and minimal. Easy to use too.

See https://github.com/davmac314/dinit/blob … COMPARISON for a comparison with other init systems.

How much cpu does xterm use though compared to Sakura, that is the real test.

If the cpu usage is way more than most others, I might understand your thinking.

RAM to me is a non-issue, but CPU, that actually means something.

Btw, I thought you liked my flagrant violation of thread topics and mulitple attempts to derail your threads. 

Also, I don't derail all threads, otherwise my account would have been suspended multiple times or more and also, people wouldn't want to help me ever on anything.

Btw, how do you upload an image on here as a last edit?

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Daedalus, Xfce with Cameo-ALU-Dark-1.5.1 theme, Aguqlemon borders ( from old deb package xfwm4-themes_4.10.0-2), and Deepsea icons. Geany theme is Himbeere, with some syntax customizations I've been using for a decade... where'd the time go??!! smile

This is my fav way to GNU/Linux!

Xfcet

That said, having slept on it, ideally I would like a Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger theme. I love those scrollbars and the skeuomorphism! I may take a crack at making one.
