Alpine Linux, sway desktop:

Trimmed down the status command so that it only shows battery status & level along with the time.

Nice minimal setup, what terminal are you using? foot/alacritty?

cool simple battery script too.

Ive looked into sway not long ago and got it working ok on devuan. Currently im going back in time to ratpoison and learning how to use this wm.

That's foot --server running in the background with a footclient for each new window. I tried alacritty and it is very nice but the memory consumption is excessive compared to foot, especially for multiple windows.

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

^ Nice.

I've switched to a central clock and changed the numerical battery indicator to an ASCII symbol string (because reading numbers is too hard):

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Thanks, it's sway with sway-bar(5).

It behaves just like i3 but without the X.Org bloat :-)

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Minor tweaks since last scrot.

51197604126_42556af8ef_n.jpg

About Browser: I have been testing for some time Firefox Nightly. Apart Density Compact (not supported) even though i activated it from about:config without the need for "userchrome.css" I do not like at all that they will remove it as an unwanted/used features when clearly have been seen around peple like and use it.
I have been a regular user of Pale Moon for many years. Temporarily made a small exit i think, i'm not sure how long i'll going without it.
Current Mozilla Firefox (Nightly) i find it modern, very fresh, awesome GTK+3/4 themes support, unlike Australis era when i abandoned the Firefox ship. Now Proton kidnapped me entirely.

About Devuan: Almost a quiet year on testing repo.

 list
# Installed Date 13-08-2020 (stable)
# Upgraded Testing Date 20-08-2020 (chimaera)
# deb cdrom:[Devuan GNU/Linux 3.0 (beowulf) amd64 - netinstall 20200526]/ beowulf contrib main non-free

deb http://deb.devuan.org/merged chimaera main non-free contrib

The last "base-files" upgrade made the change from Devuan GNU/Linux 4 (chimaera/ceres) to Devuan GNU/Linux 4 (chimaera).
Will not be far off when it becomes official stable. While i will be ready for the next Daedalus-testing round.

Apps: URxvt with transparency & shading features

*.transparent:   true
*.shading:        20
*.blurRadius:     40
*.fading:          0

CWM Window manager, i use on BSD, i'll use it for sure on Linux. After have used almost everyWM possible, CWM offers me simply everything i need from a WM. Devs behind this WM are truly genius, typical of BSD charming.
Conky >conky-std (top) as a panel, very easy couple with CWM offers me the chance to have "click-menu-features" once i click the bar, also having mouse wheel switching apps thanks to WM groups. mpv sticked as my default video/audio player.

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

vast amount of info there nili, cheers.

ogis, nice. Is that like the dark side of gemini? Also i always wonder why suckless dont use the blue from the website suckless.org #1177AA instead of the default #005577 cyan, much nicer color imo.

I like these colors. They do not strain the eyes. After a bunch of experiments, I decided to use them.

@dice thank you, cheers u too. I'm aware that i exaggerated a bit with the long post, only when i finished realized it.

@Ogis1975 very rice bro rice, I did similar with spectrwm a while ago.

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Very nice and pretty minimal dice,

Having a NONE dbus inside me has become an impossible mission nowdays (gtk3/devuan4/elogind/apps), although i did not take it seriously to remove it because i want to have some like transmission, geany etc... that depend on dbus.

...But i had a few questions i wanted to ask you on your early scrots.

Did you compile apps without dbus? or simply use GTK2 alone?

Do you have gtk3 installed without dbus? how about elogind, firefox? how they run without dbus on your system?
Your DeadBeeF i believe it runs GTK2 layout.

Also do you use Xorg as a Root or User?

Forgive me for the extra questions and i hope didn't bother you.

Hi Nili, i got most of my information on how to not have dbus activated from this link > https://dev1galaxy.org/viewtopic.php?id=2158 .But probably not completely dbus free as the libdbus-1-3:amd64  library still needs to be installed. So no i did not compile any apps without dbus. 

From what i can gather, firefox relies on libgtk-3-0:amd64 and libdbus-1-3 << (just dbus libraries), so not completely dbus free but again i dont have dbus activated by init? Yes i believe deadbeef is just gtk2 layout, but deadbeef is no longer available in debian or devuan so grabbed the upstream .deb and installed it as it has no reliance on dbus afaik. Im mainly a terminal user so i have very few programs using gtk. Instead of geany and transmission gtk i use neovim and rtorrent.

I dont have elogind installed.
I dont have xserver-xorg-legacy installed which i believe is how to run Xorg via startx without elogind so would that be using Xorg as root user?
I do use xdm (x-display-manager) and use ~/.xsession as startup file so i believe Xorg should not be running as the root user?

edit: seems x-display-manager doesnt run rootless Xorg and do need xserver-xorg-legacy with Xwrapper set to needs_root_rights=no

~ % ps -o user $(pgrep Xorg)

Hope that helps wink

Re: Show your desktop (rebooted)

Hi dice, thanks so much for your explanation that clarifies me even more about this situation. I have described it somewhat here
I am more or less aware of how it can be avoided like you did, but that I did not have the guts to go out and replace tools/apps like geany> neovim> vim, nano, transmission-gtk> rtorrent currently.

On my early build of netinst a year ago, the first steps as far as i remember elogind was recommended to not have Xorg as a root, this snippet was dbus dependent iirc, this was my first encounter with dbus, then libgtk-3-0 came as a necessity for me to use it and this at least depending dbus too, the installation i did almost a year ago, perhaps paths have been changed on the way as i have been testing all the time.

Found in this situation that I saw as inevitable unless i do compiling with minus dbus flag, I ignored it and continued with installing gtk3 apps. I never found peace with Dbus inside me since that day, also because i can't let go some GTK3 GUI and my dependence on them.

So I am in the limbo world now, leavig gui(s) apps that i like and go more terminal way or go to the corner and crying for dbus smile apparently the latter won somehow.

I'm let say 30% cli and 70% gui atm, years ago it was a little more reverse early or before for me and therefore i was more free.
libdbus-1-3 is essential to firefox, i can't run browser without it, this is very minimal package that i used too for years for FF. It can be safely ignored like isn't present..

edit: seems x-display-manager doesnt run rootless Xorg and do need xserver-xorg-legacy with Xwrapper set to needs_root_rights=no

As far as I remember elogind must used to not have Xorg as root. I knew no other way if elogind isn't installed Xorg took root powers as it was before. I don't use display manager, i just run simple startx. If i can run xorg without root and without elogind this would open another window of opportunity for me. I will check this matter once again if there is other alternatives.

I am even more clearer now thanks to your post.

Thanks bro, gladly appreciate your time.
Best regards!
