Share your Openbox Desktop ! :)

This theme has the purpose of helping people to configure their openbox desktop by analizing other openbox config files.

What should you post:

Screenshot

The Name of The Openbox and GTK Theme

The name of the running applications like trayer / awn e.t.c.

PyPanel/PerlPanel/fbpanel/tint or any other panels configuration file

~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh file

~/.config/openbox/menu.xml file

Conky config

Offline

Re: Share your Openbox Desktop ! :)

This could be done within the existing screenshot thread in all honesty. It's just that most people tend to post it up without an explanation of what DE/WM it is and other information. Just need some changing of habits.

It works well at the moment with people posting up conky configs etc only when requested, rather than by default. If you really want menu.xml and panel config files being shared, i would reccommend http://pastebin.com/

Re: Share your Openbox Desktop ! :)

I think this is a good idea...after all, we do have dedicated xmonad and wmii threads.  Wading through the fluff in the archived screenshots threads for specific material can be a hassle. I'm just getting my openbox installation configured again after using xmonad for a few months. I'll post my configs and whatnot when they're ready.

On a side note, I was saddened to see that tint (ttm) has been abandoned. I personally don't use a taskbar, but it was a great tool so I hope someone picks it up.

I think this is a good idea...after all, we do have dedicated xmonad and wmii threads.  Wading through the fluff in the archived screenshots threads for specific material can be a hassle. I'm just getting my openbox installation configured again after using xmonad for a few months. I'll post my configs and whatnot when they're ready.

Indeed smile. Order! tongue

On a side note, I was saddened to see that tint (ttm) has been abandoned. I personally don't use a taskbar, but it was a great tool so I hope someone picks it up.

I am an avid fan and hope to pick up C soon so I can try to fiddle with it (I'd love to be able to put it at the top of a screen, it only seems to be able to run at the bottom now).

Anyways, here is my stuff - screenie first of course.

What you see? Openbox, several conky instances, tint, and one of Openbox pipe menu's that cannot get enough praise smile. The clock/bar/tray layout is a bit hackish, I have centered tint, but if you have too many apps open on one page, that means they'll be overlapped by the clock and the tray at the edges (I use my four virtual desktops so I don't have this problem). The Openbox theme is a modified 'Dyne' theme. The font used by the clock and the calendar is Dungeon.

Download links:
Openbox configuration
Openbox menu
Openbox startup
Conky report bar
Conky calendar (parses when)
Conky clock
Tint configuration
Openbox theme (custom
Dungeon font
Noalwins weather pipe menu script (shown in the screenshot, this version also outputs the degree symbol ° after the temperatures, and has already been localised in Dutch, original in this thread)
Pipe menu script that mimics mount/umount functionality for removable devics (requires fixed device entries!)
Pipe menu to start SSH sessions

I think that is quite extensive tongue. I also use an RSS parser pipe menu (in C, can be found on the Openbox pipe menu page).

Hope you enjoy it like I do!

And here are links to some scripts I use:
- battery_warning.sh -- called from autostart.sh, basically checks the battery state every two minutes and displays a notification if battery level is under 10%; the laptop hibernates automatically when battery is at less than 2% (courtesy of laptop-mode-tools)
- freq.sh -- it's bound to a key combination, it lets me cycle through available cpufreq governors (current governor used is displayed via conky)
- hibernate_zenity.sh -- called from the menu and using a keybinding -- rather than hibernating immediately after the option is chosen it displays a dialog (using zenity) to ask for confirmation first; I use analogous scripts for suspend/reboot/shutdown as well.

Some of my favorite actions that can be added to rc.xml:

    <keybind key="A-F12">
      <action name="ToggleFullscreen"/>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="A-F11">
      <action name="ToggleMaximizeFull"/>
      <action name="ToggleDecorations"/>
    </keybind>

- A-F12 toggles fullscreening of applications (very useful)
- A-F11 similar effect but respects screen margins (so conky is still visible) and doesn't monopolize the screen completely

Phew... that's a long post.

IIRC you can edit the ".config/openbox/rc.xml" (or wherever rc.xml is located) to include the following in the applications section:

<applications>
  <application name="urxvt">
    <decor>no</decor>
  </application>
</applications>

Re: Share your Openbox Desktop ! :)

Thanks dyscoria that helps.

Anyone know a tray / system dock similar to trayer that supports transparancy fully? , for example with certain icons in the system tray I get a white or blackground.

Will post a screenshot if no one gets what i mean.

What you seem to be describing is an icon with a non-transparent background.  So short of changing the icon itself, it's always going to have a white background (for example).

Yes but the icon for cryptkeeper for example in trayer has a blackground but in other dock apps, like gnome-panel dock it has a transparent background, how could I fix this?

Check your gtk theme for any panel bg's.

Yes I do. Urxvt and pypanel both. My ~/.devilspie/pypanel.ds. You'll need transset-df

(if

(matches (window_class) "PyPanel")
(begin
  (spawn_async (str "transset-df -i " (window_xid) " .82" ) )
)
)

If you want to get fancy, look at my mousebind section for the part about transset-df. I have it set so that scroll with ctrl pressed on the title bar changes transparency. wink

Re: Share your Openbox Desktop ! :)

Thanks for the quick reply smile
I'm using openbox for the second time right now (i've always used fluxbox as wm)
It's great but i've another question, does xcompmgr slow down openbox? in my box it feels "heavy"

Re: Share your Openbox Desktop ! :)

xcomp uses compositing. If you ended up with some driver that isn't as optimized in that regard (i.e. the newest catalysts), you are going to have a resource-hog. Nonetheless, it's bearable, but not really mandatory. It all comes down to your personal preference in my opinion.
