Where did you find the Ubuntuforums Layout for Stylish? Need that one :)

Black (http://userstyles.org/styles/3992), Gray (http://userstyles.org/styles/3440) and Blue (http://userstyles.org/styles/2455).

They each consist of two parts, so make sure you get the second part as well. These are linked to from the above pages.

I use the Black one in Epiphany.

You can right click on the icon and say: "stretch icon", and voila!

Finally set XFCE to properly use 96 dpi :D

XFCE and Compiz running Firefox (Swiftweasel actually), Thunar and xfce4-terminal. Compiz theme is "Minimal" that I got from PurposeOfReason. Other details are in the terminal :)

That looks incredible. Everyone here is making me want to switch to xfce, but whenever i install it i have no idea what to do, haha.

I understand that some icons like the trash go default because the theme is for the pre-gutsy gnome naming scheme, and the notification area doesn't quite fit, but I like everything else...

And yes to all those observant people I am learning python now too :p

is there anyway that i can get your conky config it is realy nice and i like it

Still unsatisfied with my GTK theme... I tried Divinorum Cyan-Magenta, as suggested, but some minutes later I find it ugly again. I managed to find a better version of the wallpaper I had before, and meanwhile I'm still using Conondrum as the GTK theme, trying on White_Mod for Emerald.

I'm getting motion sick. Even though I'm not moving.

Let's talk about some facts of life, shall we?

Fact 1: I really love this GTK theme that appeared recently on GNOME-Look, called Apotheosis.
Fact 2: Apotheosis is also buggy as hell for the moment being, especially in Xfce (don't let your children see the Xfce panel with this theme enabled).
Fact 3: I still need some purple in my life to open my crown chakra.

Ergo:

This, ladies and gentlemen, means that I had to set the panel to autohide, install and use Trayer for the notification icons in the bottom right corner and install and use Conky for a simple clock, on the upper right corner.

The Emerald theme is White_Mod, with my personal choice for the font of the title and the position of the window buttons.

I still feel naked without a panel on the top of the screen. Oh well. It might grow on me.

Check your messages inbox... I'm not sure of what is the license of the brand, but everything proprietary is a pain in the neck.

The original version still with a logo is at http://www.istartedsomething.com/20070530/microsoft-surface-wallpaper-hint-touch-zune/

don't have mine quite flushed out yet, been goin through this topic to find out which dock I want. Still not too sure.
Anyways, thought I'd give you guys a copy of the icon i tossed together for firefox. Obviously it's not my work and I would gladly credit if I were positive as to it's original maker, but i'm not.
anyways, just download it to desktop then
sudo mv /home/<user>/Desktop/firefox.png /usr/share/pixmaps/
But that's assuming yours and mine are the same.

It's nothing fancy or new, but the ones i found just didn't look very good or smooth.

BTW: I made this specifically for being tiny, once you go above 48x48 u can really see the choppiness, but i still think it makes for a REALLY smooth tiny icon.

Hello! I'm pleased to know that my setup deserved your attention, guys.

About the icon set... It's a personal mixture of several icons I found here and there on the Web (with some personal mods on the mimetype icons... Nothing big). It is still a work in progress, and even though it all started with a Mac OS X icon set, it has progressed in order to keep the good ideas they have and introduce something really pretty, according to my liking. They are too much into blue, and I prefer to have a more colorful and varied look. But I still kept TextMate's icon to use it with Gedit. And yes, Miro's original icon was good enough to stay there as it is. Each day I try to introduce a new icon in the family, and for some apps I even have several possible choices inside the icon set folder. I'm not sure about the way all those licenses would allow me or not to release my personal mix in public (say, in GNOME or Xfce-Look or something), but I can do a tar.gz and send it to whoever is interested.

My usual fonts are Myriad Web 9 for everything inside the windows, Myriad Pro Semibold Italic 9 for the windows titles, and finally Calibri 36 for my Conky clock.

After some research, I came to a pretty good set of options to launch Trayer. Type the following in a terminal, run it as an Autostart file, etc.:



trayer --edge bottom --align right --widthtype request --heighttype request --transparent true --alpha 255

I'm still trying to know how to make it stop showing a shadow around it when Compiz is enabled. That's one of the reasons why I put Trayer over the darkest corner of the screen.

As for Conky, just a question: for people like me, running fglrx and Xgl (damn ATI board), do I have to always launch Conky as a display:1 app in order for it to refresh (at all), close, launch again in a clean, safe way?

January 14th, 2008, 06:45 PM
About compiz and its shadow:
go to compizconfig settings manager, window decorations, shadow windows - add !name=conky or whatever you want.
(so it looks like this : any !name=conky)

Hey, Andrek, that idea of using Creamy with that wallpaper was definitely neat. Creamy, along with being a solid theme, almost no bugs at all, also has that golden touch that, after all, actually fits the purple of the WP. Cool!

I know you didn't ask me, but I have tried awesome and I LOVE it. The main difference I've found from dwm is being able to configure without recompiling (not that it's exactly time consuming to start with).

using avant below and compiz-fusion but what I wanna know is a)where is firefox installed in ubuntsu gutsy (the chrome folder specifically) and failing that b)does anyone know how to change the icon for firefox in the avant bar? I got these instructions, but they're for windows mainly, i don't know where my folder is for firefox, maybe it's hidden. :confused:


Change the window icon

You can change Firefox's default window icon to any icon you want, by following these steps:

1. Go to the folder you installed Firefox in (e.g. C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\) and then go to the subfolder chrome.
2. While in chrome, create a new subfolder called icons, then go to that folder and create yet another subfolder called default. The full path to this folder could be C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\chrome\icons\default\.
3. Choose the icon you want to use (on Windows use .ico files, on Linux use .xpm files) and then place it in this folder and rename it to main-window.[ext], e.g. main-window.ico on Windows and main-window.xpm on Linux.

In addition to the main window, you can also change the icon on the Bookmark Manager and JavaScript Console. The icon names are bookmark-window.[ext] and jsconsoleWindow.[ext], respectively.

After this is done, restart Firefox and you should be able to see your chosen icon in the title of the browser windows.




Also, I want to add another 3d dock to the top, but I don't know which one to try, lookin' for a suggestion.


I realize this is almost off-topic, but it is for makin my desktop.

I believe you can change Firefox's icons system-wide at the folder /usr/share/firefox/icons. In case you just want to change it on AWN, right-click on the icon and select the option Change Icon. Then navigate to where you have the icon you want it to change to. You have a chrome folder at your .mozilla hidden folder in your home directory, but that is used only to change the way the colors and other elements in the browser look like, through CSS files. As for the dock on the top, AWN still doesn't move anywhere besides the bottom of the screen. Have you tried any of the Adesklets or Gdesklets for that purpose?

That's a personal mix of mine, composed by several icons I found here and there in the Web. None of the icons is actually mine, I just tweaked very few of them. Still a work in progress. I'm not sure I can release the set in public, since there are several licenses involved, but... Hey, PM's are there, right?

Thanks for the tip, I thought I looked everywhere for it, that folder was exactly what I wanted. As far as other dock, no. this was my first one. I plan to try a few more but I don't know if I can run 2 at once as this was my backup computer made of bugs and dirt.

Turns out the one in the chrome/icons/default folder is the one that is in the corner of firefox itself, so yes, you were right, but at the same time so is the guide it turns out. I did get all my icons changed nicely though.

rxvt-unicode, is a colour vt102 terminal emulator intended as an xterm(1) replacement for users who do not require features such as Tektronix 4014 emulation and toolkit-style configurability. As a result, rxvt-unicode uses much less swap space -- a significant advantage on a machine serving many X sessions.

Sorry for stepping in, but that command doesn't return any result besides a sort of "oops, that package does not exist". Wouldn't it be rxvt-unicode instead?

Edit: Another user already explained that...

Well, remember, I have two monitors. So basically it's split right down the middle. The MPD status is at the bottom right of the left monitor, and the date/time on the bottom right of the right monitor. I mostly re-wrote the .awesomerc to have different stuff on each. I'll post my Xdefaults in a sec.

I love you for two reasons now.
1. for giving me the file (love the colors).
2. I didn't know how to set up antialiasing without KDE or at least a gnome-settings-daemon running. Back to awesome I go now. Aliased fonts were the only thing stopping me from using it at the moment. I won't use full hinting like yourself, but I think I can figure it out from there. :)

A quick read of the man page didn't mention this, so I'll ask real quick. Is it possible to configure the clock on ncmpc to use 12 hour time and a mm/dd/yy format?

Comment out the last line in your .screenrc; that should get rid of that line for you.

Or if you want to change the color change the letter "w" in this part "%{= wk}" of that line to what you want the color to be ("r" or "R" for reds, "b" or "B" for blues, "g" or "G" for greens -- you get the idea).

I think it's just the colors you've defined in your .Xdefaults... Here is the full list of colors switches:

k black
r red
g green
y yellow
b blue
m magenta
c cyan
w white
d default color
. leave color unchanged
The capital versions are "bright" variants. You can have a look in manpage for screen for more info on the syntax in status lines (the relevant section is called "string escapes").

Color 11 is usually bright yellow (look in your .Xdefaults, you actually do have your colors commented there -- the second one in each color pair is usually bright). .screenrc just uses the colors as they're defined in .Xdefaults. You can of course define any other color in .Xdefaults as orange and use it instead, but bright yellow seemed most like orange to me.

Well, I've uploaded it for anyone to use. Don't expect much, though. I made it to look nice in Awesome, so the gnome-panel might look like garbage (I haven't tested it in Gnome). If you notice a problem in xfce/gnome/etc, let me know and I'll see if I can sort it out.

There are also additional perl extensions for urxvt (see "man urxvtperl").

I agree with ~LoKe though -- screen is much more powerful for tabs functionality.

Depends what you mean by auto naming... You certainly can open screen session with a bunch of screens opened by default and named the way you like and with programs started in them (or not). You'd need to define this behavior in .screenrc -- see ~LoKe's for example, he posted his earlier ("#startup sessions" part).

In general -- try searching the internetz for ".screenrc" and pick and choose from what you find to make your own. "man screen" is always a good resource when you need to look up what a particular option does.

Yes, I guess I did mod the gtk theme a bit.

Thanks, got it looking good and all, but having a challenge with the font. I like Terminus, Fixed and few others but urxvt just keeps showing a font that's real tiny no matter the change I make? Here:

http://www.bobgill.net/font.png
For terminus you can add something like this to your .Xdefaults:

urxvt*font: xft:Terminus:size=12
You can change the size to what you want of course. After making the change just run xrdb ~/.Xdefaults and that should reload your settings (you'll still have to open a new terminal to see the changes though).

Thanks, that worked!

But now in urxvt, my screen colour doesn't work (using Y in .screenrc). I changed it to red and it's fine, though. Is there something I need to change in .Xdefaults?

Well, it's hard to say what is wrong, but if the Y switch is not working and the red color is working I'd say something is messed up in you .Xdefaults (perhaps from when you were trying to change colors in gnome-terminal using .Xdefaults) -- in particular I'd look at how exactly *color11 is defined.

Aye, I got it. How interesting, ff9600 shows as perfect orange in urxvt but running in gnome-terminal exact same screen looks yellowy.

Got some random shots here from testing of various things for Compiz (I'm now officially a plugin developer :) )

One is of a modification I made to 3d Windows that allows you to set a color for the thick part of the window, the other is of my automatic 3d z-level stacking for my Wiimote Headtracking plugin.

Wallpaper is a transparent grid with square cells, skybox I don't remember where I got it, Emerald theme is mostly custom using solidLINE buttons, font is MgOpen Modata Bold.
Icons, though I don't think you can see any, are AllBlack. Screenlet themes are both custom. Metacity theme is Glossy with dark grey colors.

What PurposeOfReason said: alt + first mouse button moves, alt + second mouse button resizes. Normally, though, there is no reason to worry about it: Awesome is a "tiling" window manager and, be default, it tries to fill the screen with windows that are opened by resizing and moving them automatically according to predefined "layouts" -- I just used a "floating" layout (which behaves like a regular window manager with overlapping windows) for taking the screenshot because normally you'd simply see a fullscreened terminal or browser on my screen which doesn't look that appealing from the standpoint of a screenshot thread (it's very convenient though).

That sounds interesting. I've never used a tiling wm before.
Is it part of the wm that there are no window borders or is that a theme/config option you can choose to remove them? Also, how does Awesome compare to other wms like Openbox?

No window borders at all in awesome (though you can set a pixel size and a color for a kind of padding that will divide tiled windows -- by default it's set to 1 pixel); but there is a default status bar/panel which can be set to display various kinds of info (or disabled). Compared to openbox awesome is somewhat more minimalistic but not necessarily faster -- the whole configuration is text based, there are no configuration guis at all. The main difference, of course, is that awesome tiles windows (though it can also be used in floating mode which is useful for some apps like gimp or mplayer) while openbox uses the traditional method of floating/overlapping windows only. Awesome, like most tiling window managers, is designed to be used predominantly with the keyboard rather than a mouse -- though it's not as extreme in this regard as for example ratpoison. In general, tiling wms are an acquired taste and don't work well for every scenario -- but when you learn to use them it's really difficult to go back to the traditional floating window style wms, or at least this has been my experience.

Some links, if you'd like to find out more.

My problem when I tried awesome was that I was intimidated/overwhelmed. I had copied LoKe's .awesomerc and tried it out. But all I had was a blank screen with a statusbar. :D No right click menu or any way to start apps.

I would need someone to explain how everything works and how the config file works. Setting keybindings for apps seems easy. I have trouble even getting a wallpaper and things like it using GTK themes or autostarting applications, I wouldn't know how to begin with that. Also conky-like info in the statusbar, don't know how to start :D

My problem when I tried awesome was that I was intimidated/overwhelmed. I had copied LoKe's .awesomerc and tried it out. But all I had was a blank screen with a statusbar. :D No right click menu or any way to start apps.

I would need someone to explain how everything works and how the config file works. Setting keybindings for apps seems easy. I have trouble even getting a wallpaper and things like it using GTK themes or autostarting applications, I wouldn't know how to begin with that. Also conky-like info in the statusbar, don't know how to start :D

keybindings for apps: this is how I start most of my "common programs". I use The Windows button + something (Mod4 + f) for firefox. You can use xbindkeys for this, it works really well, although I believe awesome actually has the ability in its config file. I use xbindkeys because I switch wms a lot and it's easy to adjust if I KNOW winkey + f is firefox. For programs I want to run but I don't run very often, I usually just start them from a terminal (Mod4 + Enter is the default in awesome to bring up a terminal)
wallpaper: I use feh for this.

feh --bg-scale /path/to/wallpaper
gtk themes: It's not the only way to do it, but I'd never remember what to put in my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file to select a theme, so I use a program called gtk-chtheme. It's really easy to select a theme and a font. It doesn't do icons so you get the default gnome icons, but to get the icons you want you can look up how on the internet and add it in your .gtkrc later
auto-starting applications: I do this with my ~/.xinitrc. The downside to this (maybe?) is that you will need to start x with the startx command instead of using gdm. If you still want a GUI logon, look up slim. When you use it, it'll launch X using your xinitrc file. Now, what's this file? Here's mine:

#!/bin/sh

#
# ~/.xinitrc
#
# Executed by startx (run your window manager from here)
#

#first start some programs
xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap
xbindkeys
gnome-volume-manager &
awesome-monitor &
xcompmgr -cC &
feh --bg-scale "/home/jordan/wallpaper/Archer DeepBlack.png"

#start wm
exec awesome
#exec gnome-session
#exec dwm
#exec wmii
#exec openbox

This is just a bash script, so you can do some cool things here, but mine's pretty simple.

The line in red is how I get my conky-like status bar in awesome.
To put text in the awesome bar, you do something like this:

echo -e "0 setstatustext SOMETEXT" | awesome-client
My awesome-monitor script just does this once a second with relevant text. I've attached it if you want to see how it works.

Lastly, tiling wms DO take a while to get used to and a lot of the time I find myself using floating mode. I still in fact prefer floating mode for most of my workspaces that aren't just a bunch of terminals, but I love the space saved from having no borders more than anything.

Sorry for the long-winded post. :mad:

edit: wow, it took me forever to type that apparently. ~LoKe's post wasn't there when I started and now it says 13 minutes ago.

That's just because yours is more descriptive and actually correct. I've gotta fix some things based on yours. ;)

Just a note to Gig, his awesome-monitor might not work for you. You'll have to change a few lines to adapt it your system, as your processor information, net interface, etc might be somewhere else. It should be fairly simple to do so, it just might take a bit of time.

And yeah...I rarely use the tiling feature as well. I have my main tab tiled for my web browser, so when download dialogs and what not come up, I can see them, Firefox is also set to maximize. I have my Pulse Manager/Volume Control tiled in the Pulse tab. I have my devel tab tiled for gedit/whatever. But most of my tabs are set to float (for aesthetic purposes, no productivity).

Yeah, I need to clean that script up anyway. I have variables in it I never use. :(

Everyone jives different of course, but I prefer mine in a straight line. It just seems out of place to be "stacked" the way yours is.

No window borders at all in awesome (though you can set a pixel size and a color for a kind of padding that will divide tiled windows -- by default it's set to 1 pixel); but there is a default status bar/panel which can be set to display various kinds of info (or disabled). Compared to openbox awesome is somewhat more minimalistic but not necessarily faster -- the whole configuration is text based, there are no configuration guis at all. The main difference, of course, is that awesome tiles windows (though it can also be used in floating mode which is useful for some apps like gimp or mplayer) while openbox uses the traditional method of floating/overlapping windows only. Awesome, like most tiling window managers, is designed to be used predominantly with the keyboard rather than a mouse -- though it's not as extreme in this regard as for example ratpoison. In general, tiling wms are an acquired taste and don't work well for every scenario -- but when you learn to use them it's really difficult to go back to the traditional floating window style wms, or at least this has been my experience.

Some links, if you'd like to find out more.

Here is awesome's website: http://awesome.naquadah.org/
Here is a website of wmii and dwm: http://www.suckless.org/wiki/dwm (awesome is based on dwm code)
Here's a website for ratpoison: http://www.nongnu.org/ratpoison/
Here is another tiling wm called xmonad: http://xmonad.org/
And here is a general wikipedia article about tiling wms: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiling_window_manager

I really like flux and open, using flux for some time now and really feel "at home." I do really like dzen2, though and just installed it and ran it. Gotta love that empty bar, lol. Is there a config file for it and if so can you paste yours? Also, does it simply display open windows or can one also click on them like a regular task bar?

Gracias

Wow thanks guys! Didn't expect this much explanation. Just one more thing stays unclear then though, how would I go with starting x without GDM? I mean I know I have to enter the command, but how would I disable the GDM automatically starting or remove GDM as a whole?

sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove
Pardon me if my debain-ese isn't that great. :)
It should be something to this effect though according to another thread I found.
