Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Conky artwork does give Archbang the branded look maybe it should return for future releases

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

@Mr Green

Agreed and something a little more than CPU and RAM with the keybindings for default

Maybe like this:

Hostname: $alignr${color1}$nodename${color}
Kernel: $alignr${color1}$kernel${color}
RAM ${color3}${alignr}$mem/$memmax${color}
CPU ${color3}${alignc} ${freq}MHz / ${execi 10 sensors | grep  'Core 0' | awk '{print $3}'}${alignr}${cpu cpu0}%${cpubar cpu0 7}${color}
${color4}${cpugraph}${color}


SHORTCUT KEYS ${hr 2}
Super+a$alignr Toggle Maximize
Super+h$alignr Toggle Horizontal
Super+v$alignr Toggle Vertical
Super+c$alignr Move to Center
Super+Arrow$alignr Move
Alt+Super+Arrow$alignr Resize
Super+x$alignr Classic Keybinds

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Hi, I would like to thank the ArchBang dev team for this great distro and specially ArchVortex for helping me to configure my Openbox config for the first time.

I installed Archbang on my laptop(actually it's my girlfriend that is using that box most of the time).

As current Gentoo/Funtoo Staffer, I want to learn how things work behind the scene because it's the Gentoo/Funtoo way. So, I started to study Archbang Openbox config and I asked a lot of questions to ArchVortex, because it was the first time that I ever use Openbox.

I learned how to configure tint2, Lxappearance,Obconf,wbar,the rc.xml file,autostart,menu.xml and much much more.

Because of my Archbang experience with Openbox, I switched my Funtoo Current KDE 4.7.2 box to Openbox.... yeah you have read well, I switched from KDE to Openbox tongue

I was a hardcore KDE user since 2002....

For the record, my girlfriend used to work with Ubuntu 11.04 and now he uses Archbang 11.10 and she really love the speed on my old Thinkpad T60P tongue

So, here's my config file : http://www.funtoo-quebec.org/index/Conf … g_Openbox/

And here's some screenshots :

http://www.funtoo-quebec.org/index/Conf … shot_1.png

http://www.funtoo-quebec.org/index/Conf … shot_2.png

http://www.funtoo-quebec.org/index/Conf … shot_3.png

Feel free to comment my setup and use my config files, that's the main reason why  my config files are available over the net tongue

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

I was a hardcore KDE user since 2002....

I never thought a  hardcore KDE user would ever like openbox...
Openbox does two things for me:  it is sooo fast, if I ever have to use windows 7 or even gnome on the same system I start sighing from impatience.
And then the keyboard control, dmenu (alt +f3) for starting applications, some other keybindings for manipulating windows (and always tsjak, done): http://stillstup.blogspot.com/2010/06/k … ndows.html

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

I found on my KDE desktop that I use only minimal stuff, basically, I use konsole,chromium and my applications. I never use widgets or other KDE stuff that is part of KDE 4.

I only need 4 things to be happy with Openbox config.

1. A launcher
2. A menu to start my apps
3. A taskbar
4. A terminal to update my box

I don't even need any flashy composite with transparant stuff.

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

One day I will manage to get that list down to two, terminal and menu... with the way you can configure Openbox keyboard shortcuts do all my launching.

Less is more...

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Of course, I use keyboard shortcuts tongue

W+T, W+A,W+D and W+L or W+X are my new friend tongue

It's so fast to open stuff now.

A lot of my friends said to me that I left the KDE religion but I will come back one day tongue

I'm not so sure about that, because I don't like much flashy desktop. Even Gnome 3.2 or Ubuntu + Unity is too flashy for me and it's a CPU consomption for nothing.

By the way, on my KDE 4.7.2, after a clean reboot I had almost 600 megs of used RAM and now I have less then 160 megs.

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Nothing fantastic about my plain clean desktop except the idling RAM. This is what amazes people about ArchBang, especially on a beatup 5 year old laptop.

I have a problem with conky: conky doesn't start, when the desktop is load I need to restart conky from the OB menu.

This is my autostart.sh:

(sleep 3 && /usr/bin/nm-applet --sm-disable) &
tint2 &
(sleep 10 && /home/paolo/.conkyrc -q) &
volumeicon -b &
nitrogen --restore &
#xcompmgr &
#xbacklight -set 100 &
#/usr/bin/synclient TouchpadOff=1 &
batti &
#fbxkb &
ibus-daemon


I think I made some sintax error, can someones help me ?
I have look for the solution using google but find only different sintax and nothing work ...

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

paolo,

Change your conky line to:

conky -q &

or try

sleep 10 && conky -q & (not sure about this?)

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Many thanks to you all I can't resolve my problem... I continue googling smile

http://conky.pitstop.free.fr/wiki/index … 11_%283%29

I download and modify a little bit my conky from the above link, is called ewloni

Edit: Hello friends ! Good morning ! (now is 07:21 am here smile )
I resolve : I simply remove the raid variable lines.
My Aspire 1355 is old and don't have any raid inside smile

And I leave in the autostart the originale variable "conky -q &" (without quotes)
And I find the laptop boot fast as usual smile

Many thanks for all the answers and to all the team for creating this light and great distro !!!

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Theme reminds me of the madbox theme.
There is a new madbox 11.10 in the make; maybe only  interesting because of its artwork and selection of applications as it uses ubuntu.

A 'straight' Debian (stable+backports) OS with both Openbox and Fluxbox ... no other Desktop Environment installed or necessary.

Very impressive work man!, I also took the liberty to visit your website (devianArt). I really liked the turn-out on your "debian-fluxbox mine" desktop. Would you be very kind to guide me onto the right direction on how to make my menu transparent. A previous post in the AB! forums on how to did not worked for me.

Happy Holidays & Cheers

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Thanks, for the kind words, guys.  I do my best.

As far as, Transparency goes:

Openbox:  Menu transparency is possible using either xcompmgr or cairo-compmgr - both are in the default Menu>Settings>Composting with Openbox.

Fluxbox:  Menu-Transparency (or desktop wide) is part of the default Fluxbox set-up - just click on Fluxbox/System from the right-click menu and 'enable' pseudo-transparency and the degree of transparency wanted.

Last Screenshot for 2011

A basic #! Crunchbang (original Statler release from 2011.02) still set to Debian 'stable+backports' repros and using Openbox WM, tint2, a simple Conky.

Continuing with the minimal, yet colorful theme throughout.  Designed my own Ob-theme.

Great Japanese-themed wallpaper found at: http://wallbase.cc/toplist

Note:  Sorry for posting a Debian-based screenshot in the Archbang Forum ... but it is an Openbox WM desktop  tongue

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Continuing with the minimal, yet colourful theme throughout.  Designed my own Ob-theme.

Nice warm colours, that yellow and orange; only the gradients in the menu header aren't well defined: I see two colours.
@Irca: like especially the one with the autumn leaves, funny how the same theme works different with another wallpaper.
With the night scene the colours  blue are getting too cold for my taste.

@pablokal

Great observation! lol
I'am using GTK-3 Zukitwo-Dark-Menu, Onyx-Blue Theme and for the Transparent menu I installed Cairo-Composite Manager.

@vrkalak

Thanks for the tips!

Nicely done; I like it when the whole design comes together like that. And welcome and hope you will like AB and the forums.

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

I've gone more complicated with my weather forecast conky:

http://www.users.on.net/~thehands/windowshot.html

Sorry the website software seems to automatically downsize the images a little too much which makes them blurry (for me anyway).

My renewed interest in conky has certainly made a change to my traditional black OB desktop. smile

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

@ handy, that's a pretty awesome weather conky!! Once I move in the next two months to either Taiwan or South Korea I can add weather to my conky. Indonesian cities don't work so well with weather sites and conky.

Re: Share your ArchBang Desktop Thread!

Have you tried intellicast.com ?

See if you can get where you live or as close as possible to show up on their site, if it does then you can get a code that will allow you to use the software that I'm using.

I'm in a country town in Oz, & using intellicast gives me a worthwhile weather reading for a town 50 miles away.

My return to the 'dark-side'  (so much for being colourized)   tongue

Debian-6 Squeeze OS - set to 'stable+backports' with customized Openbox WM, Ob-theme, tint2 and simple Conky.  And the latest 'stable' backports kernel.
