    Re: Post your fluxbox setting with screenshot

    Thanks guys. I guess what I ideally want is a tabbed xterm. I really hate having 4 or 5 xterm windows open at the same time especially on my laptop which has a 12" screen. Do you know of a tabbed xterm??

    By the way, transparency works well on urxvt (rxvt-unicode) if you want to use that instead of aterm or eterm. Up to you.


    EDIT:

    ... and here's my screenshot as well.

    - conky
    - fbpager
    - no toolbar
    - no desktop icons
    - Noir theme with a few modifications (many thanks to happy-and-lost for mentioning that one; great-looking theme)
    - urxvt (rxvt-unicode) for a transparent terminal (eye candy)
    - uxterm for my regular terminal (getting work done)

    wow, your background looks like it was taken downtown in waikiki, hawaii.

    So I decided to give rxvt-unicode a go and it seems to do everything I want it to do. I can get tabbs if I need them and the fonts look quite cool.

    Any chance you could post your .Xdefaults RedSquirrel??

    It's Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. It's hard to beat in terms of sheer physical beauty. Every view is a postcard. You should see the view looking West (into the picture) from the midpoint of that bridge!

    I change my backgrounds a lot, but I think I'll be sticking with this one for a while.

    I'm not using one at the moment. I just tweaked the settings on the command line and then I made a shortcut in my ~/.fluxbox/keys file. Here are the settings I used (or something close to this):

    Code:
    urxvt -tr -tint white -sh 50 -fg white -bg black +sb -geometry 100x40 -fn "xft:DejaVuSansMono:size=10" -sl 1000

    Thanks.

    Ok my final question on the whole configuration thing of urvxt is how do I make the colors the same as in xterm? I use ls -G so I get coloured output, but the xterm highlighting of directories(/folders) is a lighter than in urxvt (or linux). The darker blue outpured is quite difficult to see in on a black background. How can I change the output in urxvt so it is the same as in xterm

    Cheers

    Re: Post your fluxbox setting with screenshot

    This is my VERY first screenshot post (for flux, or anything for that matter).. I want to thank all of you for helping me by answering my questions and coming on here to share your original ideas...

    So here it is..

    I use black_harmony theme from a flux-look.org type site
    deviant art wallpaper
    (tango icons in thunar... looking for a better 'black/grey' alternative)
    conky

    and thats it....

    Have a look at the file:
    /etc/X11/app-defaults/XTerm-color

    For now, I just borrowed them from there and put them in ~/.Xdefaults.

    Code:
    URxvt*color0: black
    URxvt*color1: red3
    URxvt*color2: green3
    URxvt*color3: yellow3
    URxvt*color4: blue2
    URxvt*color5: magenta3
    URxvt*color6: cyan3
    URxvt*color7: gray90
    URxvt*color8: gray50
    URxvt*color9: red
    URxvt*color10: green
    URxvt*color11: yellow
    URxvt*color12: rgb:5c/5c/ff
    URxvt*color13: magenta
    URxvt*color14: cyan
    URxvt*color15: white
    Do have a look at this too:

    It's very good.
