Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Nice one!

EDIT: I'll add my current setup as well. Have found a new GTK2/3 theme which is totally awesome: Zukitwo.

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Yeah, Zukitwo is pretty nice, even though I'm not a great fan of lassekongo83 and the gazillian themes he pumps out... Looking forward to someone porting Shiki-Colors or Mint X - most GTK themes have simply reinvented the wheel since Shiki... wink

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Switched back to Compiz instead of subtle. Found out I'm not that much of a keyboard guy. I do have subtle's tiling however, thanks to Compiz' grid plugin.

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

I decided to give Compiz a try because it can handle VBLANK/SYNC (useful for games) and I can't even remember when I touched it in the past. I use emerald to decorate windows (theme is known as "deviant" which I modified around a bit), tint2 as my panel and conky as my bottom panel to show information.

I start compiz with this command because I find fusion-icon too complicated not to work properly with my settings.

You can also take a look at compiz-alone-utils in AUR.

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Hello, just been working on some wallpapers. Compiz brings us a cube. So i wanted a 3-D image and it should be arch-related. Could not find one so i created my Arch logo in 3D. Still al lot of work in progress to try several variants.
Archlinux-3D-clean
Archlinux-3D-dirty
Archlinux + Compiz + glx-dock + gthumb + Equinox3D
Hope you like them, any suggestions for improvement are welcome.
By the way: some more information available
at my website
here a thumb:

That's an error from scrot. I took the screenshot too fast, so what you see there is the fading effect. I'm sorry tongue

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Hi unia I'm trying to follow your example and starting using gtk3 apps where possible.. I've just switched to Marlin from Thunar for filemanager and from lxappearance2 to lxappearance-git.. but it doesn't seems to save te correct theme settings, what do you use for managing gtk3 themes?

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

Currently there's a bug in LXappearance (which you can just use from the main Arch repo's, btw); take a look here:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=125540

For now, it's best to change your GTK3 themes manually, see here:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Gn … ttings.ini

Re: Compiz standalone screenshots

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

PS: Here`s my relevant config so far, if you want to have a look at other configs, just give me a note:

/etc/slim.com

# Path, X server and arguments (if needed)
# Note: -xauth $authfile is automatically appended
default_path        /bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
default_xserver     /usr/bin/X
xserver_arguments -nolisten tcp vt07

# Commands for halt, login, etc.
halt_cmd            /sbin/shutdown -h now
reboot_cmd          /sbin/shutdown -r now
console_cmd         /usr/bin/xterm -C -fg white -bg black +sb -T "Console login" -e /bin/sh -c "/bin/cat /etc/issue; exec /bin/login"
#suspend_cmd        /usr/sbin/suspend

# Full path to the xauth binary
xauth_path         /usr/bin/xauth 

# Xauth file for server
authfile           /var/run/slim.auth


# Activate numlock when slim starts. Valid values: on|off
# numlock             on

# Hide the mouse cursor (note: does not work with some WMs).
# Valid values: true|false
# hidecursor          false

# This command is executed after a succesful login.
# you can place the %session and %theme variables
# to handle launching of specific commands in .xinitrc
# depending of chosen session and slim theme
#
# NOTE: if your system does not have bash you need
# to adjust the command according to your preferred shell,
# i.e. for freebsd use:
# login_cmd           exec /bin/sh - ~/.xinitrc %session
login_cmd           exec /bin/bash -login ~/.xinitrc %session

# Commands executed when starting and exiting a session.
# They can be used for registering a X11 session with
# sessreg. You can use the %user variable
#
# sessionstart_cmd	some command
# sessionstop_cmd	some command

# Start in daemon mode. Valid values: yes | no
# Note that this can be overriden by the command line
# options "-d" and "-nodaemon"
# daemon	yes

# Available sessions (first one is the default).
# The current chosen session name is replaced in the login_cmd
# above, so your login command can handle different sessions.
# see the xinitrc.sample file shipped with slim sources
