~LoKe, where did you get awesome? It seems like its official site is awesome.naquadah.org but it won't open.


That is their site. Maybe you can get the source even if the page won't open for you.
http://awesome.naquadah.org/download/awesome-2.0.tar.gz

They also have this link to where you can get it for debian. Disclaimer, if you use the debian package and it doesn't work right in Ubuntu, don't blame me.

Thanks... Any suggestion for the Conky? Is it unnecessary? What should be improved?

I think what I don't like about it is that it's so spread out.
Just a matter of preference though...nothing's really "wrong" with it. :)

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

The bar in my screenshot is not dzen2 -- it's just the default bar that comes with awesome (there is a similar one in dwm). This one you can click on, it also responds to the mousewheel etc., I'm not sure about dzen2 though, I haven't really played with it a whole lot since what comes with awesome is sufficient to me... almost... (I wish there was a way of integrating a tray dock directly into it).

I remember there was a whole thread about hacking dzen2+xmonad on Arch forums somewhere; I know the author of dzen2 himself was/is active in this thread so you could look for it there if you want more info on how to configure it...

Create a file called /etc/X11/sessions/awesome.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Awesome
Comment=This session logs you into Awesome
Exec=/usr/bin/awesome
TryExec=/usr/bin/awesome
Icon=
Type=Application


Instead of running awesome directly, you could put any executable file you want I think, so long as its last line is

exec awesome...that way you can run other programs and not have a blank awesome sitting there.

edit
and no, I didn't actually try it, but it should work I'd think

Most people would probably start it through .xinitrc file, but I actually do use GDM as well, and I've created a desktop file for it:


[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Awesome
Comment=Log in using the Awesome window manager
Exec=awesome
TryExec=
Icon=
Type=XSession

Just save it under /usr/share/xsessions as, for example, awesome.desktop. This will start a plain vanilla session of awesome which is not a particularly thrilling sight :) I'd suggest changing the "Exec=" line so that it points to some script that runs awesome + everything else you want to run with the session (you could model it on one of the .xinitrc scripts posted above).

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



Thanks! I've really been loving Openbox. I really dig a sleek, fast system running just what it needs. I think it too was kind of an acquired taste, but once I got used to it, I really loved it. I feel inhibited almost at times when I'm in GNOME and KDE.

I may just give one of these tiling WMs a try.

I think the look of docker depends on your Gtk theme.

Yeah I'm using it. But sometimes I get that border and sometimes I don't. :(

Eh, okay, a worse problem now: I have "tint &" in my openbox autostart file, and it simply won't start with openbox anymore o.O

I have to manually start it in the terminal. It was working fine half an hour ago, nothing changed since :O

The dock (and anything in it) follows the OSD settings in your Openbox theme file.

If you were referring the background of (some) icons in the docker's system tray: those are controlled by the panel settings of your Gtk theme.

Well, I guess I know why tint has a border. It's using its own window, for example, when I move a window through the tint task manager tint will be above it. I think this is because I have to start tint manually because it suddenly stopped feeling like autostarting together with openbox even though its in the autostart.sh and autostarted fine earlier :o

No problem. Sorry about the resolution, that's the only size I have. The original wallpaper came in a set (I think from deviantart) but unfortunately after I unzipped the archive, the filename of the image was different from the original work, so I can't find it.

I changed my Openbox theme to match Loke's Gtk theme. I think it looks pretty sharp:

No problem. Sorry about the resolution, that's the only size I have. The original wallpaper came in a set (I think from deviantart) but unfortunately after I unzipped the archive, the filename of the image was different from the original work, so I can't find it.

I changed my Openbox theme to match Loke's Gtk theme. I think it looks pretty sharp:

How did you get transparency in urxvt?

Its only pseudo-transparency, but here:
put this in ~/.Xdefaults



! rxvt-unicode
URxvt*scrollBar: False
URxvt*saveLines: 5000
URxvt*inheritPixmap: True
URxvt*background: black
URxvt*foreground: white
URxvt*tintColor: white
URxvt*shading: 50
URxvt*fading: 25
URxvt*fadeColor: black
URxvt*geometry: 114x24


Then when you run urxvt, it pops up like mine! you can specify them as options on the command line, but its way easier this way. Mess around. The "shading" and "fading" effects are the ones you want - shading is the transparency, fading fades out of focus terms.

second screenshot tha ti just toook. Made a haze effect with gimp


I've had a really difficult time theming Kubuntu. Basically, I can't. I've tried to install new themes, but when I select them, they don't work. And the KDM manager just simply won't even allow me to do anything to it all, even in Administrator mode. The only theme I've ever been able to install was Domino, and that's only because I got it in a .deb format. Nothing else ever works.

Beside that, the thing that frustrates me most about KDE is that the customization options are scattered all over the place. Everything isn't in one central location.

I really dig KDE and really respect the KDE team for what they do, but it's hard to use it when I'm such a configuration junkie and can't get my fix. I have seen people discuss the fact that Kubuntu tends to be a bit dis-integrated and fussy. Does anyone else have this problem?

I don't think any of us are using a tray - its just the default awesome status bar. You could get pypanel to look like it though, with some .pypanelrc tweaking.

Wallpaper "City of Brass", found it at Customize.org;
GTK theme is Aurora Midnight just with a little change in the color;
Emerald theme is still my mod of Holta.

No AWN for a moment. I never seem to find a good way of embellishing my desktop.

can i ask you how one gets the clock font colour different from the rest of the bar?

In my case, I just use two Orage clocks (I'm on Xfce). One displays the time, the other displays the day, month and year. I can choose a specific color for each one of them on their properties dialog.

THAT is nice. I love the way you did the panel, with the transparency and shadow.
Mind sharing the image you used for the panel?

Thanks! Sure thing- I'll attach it.

I had to edit the font colours of the menubar and clock in the gtkrc of the Creamy theme in order to use a black panel in Gnome. You can do that or set up a .gtkrc.mine file. There are tutorials on how to do the latter on the forums.

If you just want to tweak the theme's gtkrc file, look for a section like:



widget_class "*Panel*b*" style "STYLE-NAME"

It will probably be near the ed of the file. Then scroll up to the section that looks like this:


style "STYLE-NAME"
{
blah blah blah
}


And change the item labeled fg[NORMAL] to the color you want.

You'll have to do so in the rc.xml file (in ~/.config/openbox/). In the keyboards section, add the following:



<keybind key="A-F1">
<action name=”Execute”>
<execute>gmrun</execute>
</action>
</keybind>

Reconfigure Openbox (in the desktop menu) and you will be Alt+F1 will bring up gmrun.

If you want gmrun to be undecorated (without a window header), add the following to the same file in the applications section (at the end of the file):


<application name="gmrun">
<decor>no</decor>
</application>

I would just add it to the file-- or, you could put it in your ~/.gtkrc.mine file. Here is an example:



style "panel"
{
#font_name = "DejaVu Sans 9"

#fg[NORMAL] = "#FAFAFA" #normal text color
#fg[PRELIGHT] = "#000000" #character palette text hover color
#fg[ACTIVE] = "#ff0000" #clock pressed text color
#fg[SELECTED] = "#0000ff"
#fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#00ff00"#8A857C"

#bg[NORMAL] = "#C9BFB3" #character palette background
#bg[PRELIGHT] = "#dfdfdf"
#bg[ACTIVE] = "#D0D0D0"
#bg[SELECTED] = "#ff0000" #menubar button pressed
#bg[INSENSITIVE] = "#303030"

#base[NORMAL] = "#00ff00"
#base[PRELIGHT] = "#00ff00"
#base[ACTIVE] = "#00ff00"
#base[SELECTED] = "#00ff00"
#base[INSENSITIVE] = "#303030"

#text[NORMAL] = "#161616"
#text[PRELIGHT] = "#303030"
#text[ACTIVE] = "#ff0000"
#text[SELECTED] = "#303030"
#text[INSENSITIVE] = "#8A857C"

}
widget "*PanelWidget*" style "panel"
widget "*PanelApplet*" style "panel"
class "*Panel*" style "panel"
widget_class "*Mail*" style "panel"
class "*notif*" style "panel"
class "*Notif*" style "panel"
class "*Tray*" style "panel"

Just uncomment the things you want to use. Keep in mind that the .gtkrc.mine file is give priority to your theme's gtkrc file.

Thanks for the help. I gave this a try. Putting the code in the .gtkrc.mine file had no effect but pasting it to the end of the gtkrc for the theme I'm using did. However, in the screenshot (http://ubuntukids.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/21012008.png) you can see that the text for the "switch user" applet didn't change. The only part I uncommented was:

Hmm. Maybe you need to do this: make a file in your home folder called .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2 then open it with a text editor and put this in the file



include "/home/jim/.gtkrc.mine"


Repeat the process for a file called .gtkrc-2.0

Thanks. That seemed to help. The .gtkrc-1.2-gnome2 file already existed with that content but not the .gtkrc-2.0. Creating that and rebooting caused the .gtkrc.mine to have an effect but some settings seem to override it. Also, it still didn't have any effect on the "user-switcher" applet text. However, I solved that by using the icon instead of text.

I'm now one step closer to being able to tweak my themes any way I want. Unfortunately, I lack any ability to coordinate colors so it's doubtful I'll ever make a decent theme :). If I was rich I would pay someone to do it for me.

Anyway, thanks for the info.

If you're running gnome, gnome-settings-daemon does seem to mess with one's ability to use .gtkrc-whatever. So, just know that you're likely not doing anything too wrong.

No problem. If you want to learn more about gtk, I think the best way to do it is to take a really simple theme, like a Rezlooks, and change one color at a time to something that really stands out, like 00FF00, so you can see what it does. Of course that takes a rather long time, but you can learn a lot.

I've been looking for a good theme for a long time now, and while doing some work with Wikipedia came across the different United Nations flags, and though "those would make a great set of wallpapers". They do. Great two-tone images with the same scales from an open source that represent ideas of unity, etc.

BEAUTIFUL! I need the details (gtk theme, emerald theme, fonts, clock info, etc!)

Thanks for the compliment, especially coming from YOU!

Details:
The GTK theme is a personal slight modification of Elegant One. I always liked it, but I found it was, well, just WAY TOO white. So, I have been toning down some parts of it to a very, very light gray. Some parts of the windows are still pure white, which I don't know how to change yet and, honestly, I think it's a funny contrast with the dominant light gray, so I don't know if I'm going to change that at all. I also changed the scrollbars and the resizing handle on the lower right corner of some windows, and finally I chose different tones of gray for the odd and even rows on lists.

The Emerald theme is also Elegant One, but I put the Close, Minimize, Maximize (in this order) on the left, and the title is on the right, with just 5 pixels of distance from the border.

The main font is Lucida MacBold 7. The windows titles (from Emerald, of course) have the same font, size 8. My Conky also uses the size 8 of Lucida MacBold, aside with Lucida Grande, size 8 as well. The little arrow on the left of my "now playing on Quod Libet" section is actually the number 4 rendered in the font Webdings. The clock is done with Calibri Bold 9. Actually, they're two Orage clocks. The right one was toned to a burnt orange.

The icons used are, as usual, my own personal set of icons caught here and there in the Web, still evolving. I really like them. The icon of the Applications menu (better said, the Xfce menu) is a quick SVG image file I did yesterday with some of the colours of the wallpaper and the theme.

The wallpaper is "Skippin Skool" by Ether, on Customize.org. It's in a wallpaper pack, and its link is http://customize.org/wallpapers/51314 . Take a time to explore her stuff. All of the wallpapers are plain awesome.

If there is any other detail, request or suggestion you might want to do, please say. Thanks again!

Perhaps if I could get your version of the GTK and Emerald themes? I think it looks perfect as it is and don't think that I could "moddify it" to look anywhere near as good.

Your theme is enough to make me go back to Gnome. O_O

I'm using Xfce, by the way, and as far as I know, you can use GTK themes under almost all window managers... Except for QT apps, of course.

Here is my mod of Elegant One and its correspondent Emerald theme, as an attachment.

Those numbers look like MusicBrainz identifiers. A quick Google search pointed me to The Who using that number, for instance. But anyway. Is your Quod Libet entry in the .conkyrc file correctly typed? Did you check the metadata of your music files in order to see if they're alright?

So I thought. Are they in their own proper fields? If so, what is the name of the tag type? Or are those numbers mixed up with the Artist tags? Either way, I believe it wouldn't harm to use Quod Libet and Ex Falso (they're wonderful, aren't they?) to delete that particular tag. I personally prefer to have my audio files with just the album, artist, album and year tags filled. But that is just my way of organizing my music.

They weren't mixed up, but in a field called "musicbrainz_albumartistid", followed with one for album, track, and some more. Since they bothered me, I just decided to get rid of them.

Oh, and by the way... I think the problem with the script is that it fetches all stuff related to "album" or "artist" in the "current" file at the .quodlibet folder, so if other tags include those words in their titles they will also be displayed. So I believe. I also had some extra information being displayed when it belonged to tags like "originalartist" or such. Just a hint.

I just used Quod Libet to delete all those tags from my entire library. It's not information I'd use anyways.

What is in a name?

You did? In your conky? I don't see it...

Not on this screenshot, anyway. But sometimes it happened. I also got rid of garbage tags after it, anyway.

Alright, well, now that those tags are gone...

Fluxox and a theme I made for the background (it looks pink now but...), conky with that script.

So I <3 the new Clearlooks, but I use KDE, so here's a QtCurve shot at it. (OMG first post in this topic. *faints*)

Theme QtCurve with a Config I made which is similiar to Klearlook which now comes with QtCurve, but not exactly like Klearlook.

Color scheme: From GNOME Screenshots

Background: Found it on KDE-Look, it's not that great, but I needed something snowy. :-P

Icons: Tango, duh. (Actually BCTangoKDE but whatever.)

EDIT: 99th Page! :-P

Pink is always an interesting concept for theming, in my opinion (since a Portuguese bank started using pink for their logo, I started loving it even more). So, with some more work on the window borders buttons (the Openbox theme in this case) and a really deep, strong and warm pink for the selected area in the window controls (Xfce engine there?), you would have a very good base to take off and fly!... Yep. Debian logo is great (and the new Arch one is wonderful as well).

EDIT: Almost in the 100th page and it isn't even the last week of January... I speak for myself... I don't think I actually have a life besides Ubuntu... LOL...

Starting to like Quod Libet as well... Annoying that it consumes alot of CPU though.

Anyway, is there a way to edit tags faster than one by one?

Ex Falso, Quod Libet's excellent tag editor allows you to do so. If you have it installed you can access it through Quod Libet.

He's been quiet lately. He is on 11, with 23 posts.

Here is an update on my latest desktop. I've made the Pekwm theme lighter, and changed the buttons a little.

Details: Pekwm 0.1.6 with a modified Japan Pekwm theme, modified Dandelion theme, nuoveXT-1.6 icons, Sans fonts and a wallpaper from customize.org. Applications running are conky, netwmpager, fbpanel (screenshot 1) and thunar (screenshot 2).

Feedback is welcome.

Probably one of the best conky scripts I've seen.

Could I see it? :D

I put Openbox on my XO, just for fun. And because Sugar kind of gets in my way sometimes.
