Edit: ops, wrong link smile

Two things:
1. desert detector: ... match!
2. you might wann use a term that supports utf-8 and set your locale to it, or is it centericq that can't handle that?

I'm using urxvt - rxvt-unicode, so it's probably centericq that can't handle utf8 smile

no just did it by hand
potrace always gives you to much detail or not enough

hmpf, I think to detect all the deserts around Archlinux would be a fulltime
job tongue

the potrace thing: A matter of workflow.
If I'd like to do such a thing with the picture, I'd gimp it first:
normalizing levels, noise reduction, reducing colors and all this kind of things
untill I come up with a 5 colors picture maybe.
The fire up InkScape and figure ut the magic of Shift+A+B -> a potrace gui
her you can use the multiple colors mode and set it to like 10 scans.
This gives you a grouped object, degroup it and throw a way what you don't
need. I think it would be faster and easier.

Glad you like it smile  These dockapps are in extra/AUR.  I must point out that wmpower uses 4-6% of CPU at all time.  There are a lot of these dock apps out there (extra, AUR, http://dockapps.org/ ) . I chose these ones because I liked them and they work well with FVWM.

In the case where you don't like dock apps, the trick is to hide them with a nice emacs window like in my busy screenshot. tongue

No, it's not that - I mean dock apps themselves are cool... and *could* have potential, but they always look bad - like they're all made with Motif and GTK1 widgets....

The MyBox flux theme also looks very good with the shinji wallpaper. Sort of OT but here's a screenie of mine with that combo.
