Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

Just upladed Version 2021_01,
from now on there wont be montly updates anymore,
i think there is not much left to do and i am pretty happy with it as it is now.

Programms from other places than the Devuan repo can be updated with the 'update_all' alias.
(Palemoon,  Qutebrowser, Icecat, Shotcut, Deadbeef, youtube-dl)
And the programms that i compiled from source like JWM and BSPWM have been rebuilt with the latest git version, so they are good to go for the next time.

There will only new releases when the next version of Devuan is released, or if someone finds a bug in the installer script
or maybe if gnu hurd 1.0 will ever be reality wink

Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

How did you make jwm work like that? How much CPU usage does that use? And could you make a git page with the source code?

This looks awesome, seriously!

Re: Michaels Devuan Edition *Update*

How did you make jwm work like that?

the font is called 'bebas-neue'

sudo apt install fonts-bebas-neue

for more information, checkout .config/jwm

How much CPU usage does that use?

according to htop it uses 0.0% tongue
the whole system with nothing other open but htop bounces between 1-2% cpu usage and 180-190M ram
since that is in percent, i should mention that this data refers to a 10 year old Thinkpad X201

And could you make a git page with the source code?

okay, im not a big fan of git, but here you go
https://gitlab.com/_alphalpha_/dotfiles
still have not figured out how exactly everything works, but the jwm files are there

i am not sure if it is necessary, but to make sure jwm loads the correct config,
the line where jwm gets started in your .xinitrc should look like this

exec jwm -f $HOME/.config/jwm/jwmrc

also notice that .config/jwm/theme is a symlink to one of the files in .config/jwm/themes/
dont know how git handles symlinks, but in case that does not work, try

ln -s .config/jwm/themes/protogrey .config/jwm/theme

make sure to have a read of .config/jwm/autostart.sh and adjust it to your needs
and to make your wallpaper load, check .config/jwm/wallpaper
you maybe want to change 'xwallpaper --zoom .local/wallpaper.png' to 'nitrogen --restore' or whatever wallpaper setter you use
