Nice and minimal xfce setup (well I consider it minimal) with no wasted space thanks to conky on the panel at the top:

Did you insert the conky panel into xfce one? If yes, is it possible with gnome-panel too?
P.s. Big up for your musical taste!

Not exactly. It's a bit of a hack. The Conky window is actually an always on top (window hint: above) desktop window and place right over the panel. To get the themed panel to show through I set pseudo-transparency on conky and then actually drew the panel on my desktop wallpaper.

Relevant parts of config:

own_window yes
own_window_hints above,undecorate,skip_taskbar,skip_pager,sticky
own_window_type desktop
own_window_transparent yes

maximum_width 820

gap_x 165
gap_y -25

If you don't have a themed panel (ie.  just a solid colour) turn pseudo-transparency off. If you do have a themed panel, use Gimp to draw your themed panel on your wallpaper. It's a hack but it works!

The current desktop. At some point I need to come up with a cooler hostname for this computer.

ssig-02-15-03-11250.png.xs.jpg

Since joining last month:

- Changed from XFCE to Xmonad
- Redid my entire file structure to be more concise
- Switched almost everything to cli tools, except for the web which I changed to icecat, and I'd go to the firefox beta but it lacks vimperator.
- Generally it's pretty rare to see my computer go over 10% cpu use
- I've never seen it have more than 60 processes when I'm not using firefox/icecat

Apparently, minimalism is awesome.

The next thing on my list is to get a good dzen running with xpm icons, but I'm saving that until after I've read through my python book and I want to tackle some scripting one weekend.

Edited because my thumbnail is acting weird.

coarseSand: vimperator works in firefox3, you need the 0.6 snapshot. Search for vimperator on wikipedia (yes I know big_smile), and there it gives you a link for the beta version.

Re: March 2008 Screenshots

This month I finally decided to move on to something lighter, after testing KDE4 for a while (my machine is just getting too old). I will see how it develops and keep using KDE4 progs which I like very much, but for now it seems that I'll be trying out Openbox. It's nothing original, just ideas and wallpapers taken from other Arch screenshots, but I am enjoying the speed and simplicity.

Thanks much Gigamo, I suspected it might, but I wasn't sure where people were finding it. :P Of course actually searching myself might have been a better ideas, but oh well.

Edit: Yep, still a nub. I have the snapshot, and two questions: 1) Where do I build the snapshot?, 2) Should I be using firefox3 from the reps or download it from Mozilla and run in its own folder? I've been looking around and neither /opt/mozilla or the mozilla version have the src/ or downloads/ directories that vimperator 0.6 is supposed to be built from/installs itself to.

Sorry for the heavy off-topicness, I may lift this edit into another thread.

Get "firefox3" from the unstable repo.

as for vimperator, install the xpi here: http://vimperator.driftaway.org/

Re: March 2008 Screenshots

I don't do monthly changes. I do weekly. I get bored very fast. Actually I do day and night. During the day, I use a bright theme. During the night, I use a dark theme. It's easier on the eyes.

Re: March 2008 Screenshots

I have to agree with that idea Spook, but I just keep things dark all the time to avoid eye strain later.

Hmm.... maybe setting up a script to change my .Xdefaults and xmonad.hs files based on time of day is in the works. If I can ever wrap my head around Python that is.

@bb10: I think it's safe to go ahead, but expect a massacre if you post Windows. wink Don't be like the guy in the 2007 LnF awards who nominated explorer.exe for fastest WM.

Cool smile And about windows, I like it so I use it. I love to use/explore all the different operating systems out there, thats the way I am. smile And I don't care what others think of me using/liking windows. wink

Re: March 2008 Screenshots

I'm new to Arch ( and to Linux in general really) but I just love it ! What a great distro. I am learning so much with the help of this great community.  This is my first  attempt at a desktop.

Re: March 2008 Screenshots

Damn bb10, you're quite a collector. I can appreciate someone using Windows in order to explore it, even though Vista is still fail in my mind.

Might I suggest using something other than Gnome for your Arch install though? You've done a good job with the look of Gnome on Ubuntu, but Arch is a much more modular distro so it's worth trying out some other ones. Off the top of my head possible DEs/WMs are:

- KDE (Boo, though KDEmod is supposed to fun. I just hate the feel of Qt)
- Gnome
- XFCE
- The *box WMs (Openbox, Fluxbox, and I've heard of Blackbox, but I've never seen it used lately)
- pekwm
- evilwm
- e17
- awesome
- xmonad
- dwm
- wmii
- ratpoison

More or less in descending order of weight. It's silly yet entertaining to run a program that could've been in its prime a decade ago on a modern processor.

Is this bmpanel? What config/theme do you use?

The gtk theme is here the top link, but the green borders on the top and bottom are from my openbox theme. I havn't put the openbox theme up yet, but it's a custom version of the arch linux theme.
