cool  cool

Concept pre-release only Guys...but I know what you mean...'I was blinded by the light'...

NSFW...maybe...but cool

SEP-14 might well be back to the darkness...well it is summer in my part of the world  cool

Also, remember, I have redshift configured, so if you test the ISO 'white' is chilled down through the day...
Note: edit  ~/.config/redshift.conf for your LAT/LONG and preferred settings
The screeny does not show this of course wink

Thanks Guys and Greetings from Lux!

Q.What is dwmX?
A. Debian Wheezy+dwm wm from suckless tools= fast and light cool

The SEP-14 release will feature the Lounge Radio 'now playing' script with a little ImageMagick  wink
The script is described here and back in action cos Lounge Radio web server is back in action again;

@MagnificentSpam
I might give you an opinion if I could look closer.
You really should be using thumbnails linking to a larger image, as described at the top of the thread... wink

@chepioq
Thanks.
Got it now... I have also found this ImageMagick command gives a better 'black and white' for me;

convert ~/.loungeradio -colorspace Gray ~/.loungeradio1

For all those that might be interested Lounge Radio website is back in full operation cool
This means I can use my Lounge Radio 'now playing' image script courtesy of Naik,arclance and the guys and girls on this thread.

#!/bin/bash

wget http://www.lounge-radio.com/code/pushed_files/now.html -O ~/loungeradio.html >/dev/null 2>&1 &&

album=$(awk '/id="album"/{getline; print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed "s/<div>\|<\/div>//g")
track=$(awk '/id="track"/{getline; print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed "s/<div>\|<\/div>//g")
 
wget "http://www.lounge-radio.com/code/pushed_files/$(awk '/id="covercontainer"/{print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed -r 's/.*src="(.*)" width=.*/\1/')" -O ~/.loungeradio >/dev/null 2>&1 &&

I am designing a desktop in black and white.
How would I output the 'now playing' image in conky in black and white?
Imagemagick maybe;

convert ~/.loungeradio -monochrome ~/.loungeradio1

I think I just need to integrate something like this into the script...

Any ideas welcome.

#7 Re: Artwork & Screenshots » August 2014 Screenshot Thread » 2014-08-09 08:13:48

@lrcaballero
Thanks.
I am collecting ideas for SEP-14 release.
Got any?

#8 Re: Introductions » I am a novel writer. I use CrunchBang. I say, "Hello." » 2014-08-05 17:22:34

@normancrane
I have been around the 'Linux block' and I can assure you that Crunchbang has one of the least intimidating forums.
Just try some research before posting in the forums and you will get all help possible.
I am not a 'computer/IT guy'...my background is Satellite Communications and Broadcast Engineering...computer usage was minimal back in the day...
My GNU/Linux usage over the last 15 years has resulted in my own 'distrolette' dwmX...maybe not for you at this time... but the learning curve is actually quite shallow.

All the best!  wink

@Head_on_a_Stick  cool
I will have to give Xwayland a try soon...

@Loomx
@Alad
@Unia
Thanks for your inputs all...a useful reference for the future.
Not sure why $HOME was causing me such problems in config.h
The script solution seems to be working fine for now.
Thanks again.

#12 Re: WM/DE Talk » The great #! forums DWM thread » 2014-08-03 14:13:24

@Loomx
Sorry, but I could not get your suggestion to work with either $HOME or /home/live  sad

I have found a solution by using a script found on Linuxpedia fr

#!/bin/sh
# file: ~/bin/main_menu.sh
# auteur: thuban <http://thuban.toile-libre.org/>
# 9menu-full-script
#Apparence
BG="#101010"
FG="#AEA888"
FN="-*-ohsnap-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
# Le dossier du menu
DIR=~/.9menu
# Le fichier du menu
FILE=.9menurc
cd $DIR
9menu -label "full-menu" -popup -bg "$BG" -fg "$FG" -font "$FN" -teleport -file $FILE

Here is the relevant part of my DWM config.h;

/* commands */
static char dmenumon[2] = "0"; /* component of dmenucmd, manipulated in spawn() */
static const char *dmenucmd[] = { "dmenu_run", "-m", dmenumon, "-fn", font, "-nb", normbgcolor, "-nf", normfgcolor, "-sb", selbgcolor, "-sf", selfgcolor, NULL };
static const char *termcmd[]  = { "urxvtcd", NULL };
static const char *menu9cmd[]  = { "9menu", "-popup", "-teleport", "-file", "/home/live/.9menurc", "-bg", "#101010", "-fg", "#AEA888", "-font", "-*-ohsnap-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*", NULL };
static const char *menucmd[]  = { "./9menu-full-script", NULL };
static Key keys[] = {
	/* modifier                     key        function        argument */
	{ MODKEY,                       XK_p,      spawn,          {.v = dmenucmd } },
	{ MODKEY,                       XK_F1,     spawn,          {.v = menu9cmd } },
	{ MODKEY,                       XK_F2,     spawn,          {.v = menucmd } },

As you can see, at least for the moment while my project is in alpha, I have F1 as before using /home/live/.9menurc and now F2 points to the script at ./9menu-full-script.

So after dwmX install F2 should still work for 9menu.

Thanks again for your input.

@Head_on_a_Stick
I haven't used Fedora for years.
I will certainly read through the tips...thanks  wink

#15 Re: WM/DE Talk » The great #! forums DWM thread » 2014-08-02 18:14:57

@Menschenkind

I would have thought it was that simple...and I recompiled DWM just to check I was not going crazy.
It would appear that DWM config.h requires the file path defined as /home/live/.9menurc
In this case, or the relevant user...

...not usually a problem but I am trying to help a new user install not having to recompile dwm to get 9menu working....

#16 Re: WM/DE Talk » The great #! forums DWM thread » 2014-08-02 17:33:02

I am hitting a brick wall with this problem...or aging brain cells...or both wink

I am trying to make my files on my live DWM distro (dwmX) home folder 'agnostic' so that they still function regardless of user after install.

Here are some examples;

xset +fp $HOME/dwmfonts &

$mpd_smart ${execi 100 $HOME/weather.sh "EUR|LU|LU001|Gralingen"} ${execi 100 $HOME/english_time}

urxvt -e $HOME/./pipes.sh

urxvt --hold -e $HOME/./colors.sh

However, this approach does not work in dwm config.h;

static const char *menu9cmd[]  = { "9menu", "-popup", "-teleport", "-file", "/home/live/.9menurc", "-bg", "#101010", "-fg", "#AEA888", "-font", "-*-ohsnap-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*", NULL };

If I change this to;

static const char *menu9cmd[]  = { "9menu", "-popup", "-teleport", "-file", "$HOME/.9menurc", "-bg", "#101010", "-fg", "#AEA888", "-font", "-*-ohsnap-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*", NULL };

I get a permission denied error....

I am sure the solution is really obvious but I am missing it right now.
Any tips would be much appreciated.

Thanks for testing.
Next 'official' alpha should be out in August...
