Re: July 2008 Screenshots

Playing with Compiz standalone:

   desktop_july-thumb.png

Since 2d rendering performance is horrible with recent nvidia drivers, Compiz (with much of the fluff switched off) works (or at least renders windows) faster on my system than Openbox.  And I get nice transparencies and shadows for free -- with no weird glitches like I always get with xcompmgr. 

I couldn't get conky to work -- I'm using dzen2 instead.  Conky might be possible if you also use something like pcmanfm to manage the desktop for compiz.  I had to outsource keybindings to xbindkeys, and I'm using dmenu to start applications.  Other than that it's pretty much a typical "openbox setup", except with compiz-fusion instead of openbox smile

that explains alot..

perhaps i'll try the compiz myself.

I thought openbox was acting a little more sluggish than it should lately

Compiz has keybindings built in.  Dunno if you tried it.

CCSM>General Options>Commands.  Then just set your commands and grab your bindings.  I use Conky too.  I can throw up my .conkyrc and see if it helps you.

The problem is that I use too many keybindings, and compiz only lets me define 11, I think.  Xbindkeys works perfectly, though, so it's not a problem.  Overall I'm pretty impressed with Compiz -- it has a handy WM action for fullscreening applications, and it's possible to define per-application settings so it's a good base to work with, actually.

I'd be interested in looking at your conkyrc -- conky would always end up messing up the whole desktop when I used compiz to draw the wallpaper.

Oops forgot about that.  I just setup F1-F5 for mine.    Here is the conkyrc:

If you are having problems forking it to the desktop I would try running it transparently and in its own window, then just add rules to CCSM to exclude conky.  Thats what I do.

(Click To View Bigger)

My Windows cd broke so, I decided to give Arch a try have been running it for a few days now. I wish I was running tint. But it has no pager, dock, time, volume control. The recent version is very visually appealing and very customizable, except there needs to be an option for controlling the tint of non-selected icons. It's too dark by default. I tried to setup tint, pypanel, netwmpager and to provide me with missing functionality but it's impossible to adjust many things like system tray sizing with out overlapping. Netwmpager has become annoying due to the fact that clicking a full screen app in a different desktop moves to the one you are in. For now I use lxpanel, very nice panel but visual customization is garbage, partial transparency doesn't work for some reason.

Also using a custom openbox theme I'm working on, will release at some point. Murrina-Color is the GTK and wallpaper is a new one from interfacelift.(Calm Before The Storm) Sorry for long post. tongue

Thanks, I already see some differences, so I'll see tomorrow if I can get it to work.

What window manager is that ? FVWM ? E17 ?

I would guess it's FVWM, could you build a panel like that with anything else ?

That's great work! How did you get the decorator to work. I tried setting this up today and I could not get emerald to work or compiz to show window borders.

I like how you mention how it relates to an "openbox setup" because I was planning on setting up a WM such as openbox with a few other utilities but I wanted a standalone WM with more composite settings.

Hey could you post your dzen2 configuration ? Thanks.

Try reloading the page -- I updated the link at some stage, so maybe you still have the old version of the link cashed or something.
