Hi there,

i`ve just switched to archlinux but i`m still not sure how to built up my desktop. I stumbled across this thread and i think i like the idea of a standalone desktop with compiz.
But so far i`ve some problems and questions. Maybe someone here can give me a hint:

All panels i`ve tried so far (awn,xfce4-panel,lxpanel,fbpanel) are not able to display only the windows from the current desktop in the taskpanel. I`ve set "virtual desktops" in ccsm to "2" and vertical desktops to "2" too. As far as i know, at least awn and xfc4-panel should be capable of compiz virtual desktops. Any suggestions?

Another question is: What do i have to configure my self when i`m not using a full DE? How do you mount e.g. USB devices? What other things do i have to keep in mind, when using standalone compiz?

I`m thankful for any answers smile

Did you install the awn-extras-applets package? That installs the shiny switcher plugin which is what I use. It works here.

Your other question depends on the applications you're running. Basically your best option is to just use them and spot things you're missing.

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Robert, your questions don't belong in a screenshot thread. Start a new thread, or better, one thread per question.

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

@Unia Thanks, i`ll give this a try, but i somehow think this is a more general Problem.

@frabjous: I know, and i did open such a thread
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=126061

But so fare no one answered and i think the thread is already drowned in the new threads ;/... but if you have any suggestions i`m happy to hear them in the other thread big_smile

greetz,

Robert

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Gotta bump this topic again! Here's my Compiz standalone, with AWN dock:

tYWNtYw

Switched to PCManFM instead of Nautilus, lighter and it handles iPods! big_smile
tYWNtZA

The only thing I miss is the ability to add a global menu to AWN

* Avant-Window-Navigator with Cairo Menu, DockbarX Applet
* Thunar-git
* Icone: Faenza (without apps icons since I do not like them)

Wallpaper -> http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper/deta … utumn.html
I have to choose a better gtk theme XD
