So my buddy found this old Dell Inspiron 2200 in a dumpster at the University.  The hard drive was fried and he was going to throw it away.

Soooo....I got a new hard drive and slapped #! on it. big_smile   Still trying to work out some kinks and get things customized to my liking, but it's working great so far.

I might try and run an Arch installation on it at some point, but I like #! from a previous install on another computer, so I'll probably run it for awhile.

@rstrcogburn: Nice setup, care to share the wallpaper? i like it so much.

@illumin8: Cool, the colors are perfectly matched on dark theme, i wish i can do that too.

@Elder: Transparency always looks nice, isn't it? nice setup, cool wallpaper too.

Re: February 2011 Screenshot Thread

Someone turned out the lights!!  When "my" theme crapped out creating errors in the terminal I dumped it and started changing things little by little. Iceweasel beta4 stopped using the script that gave me a grey background in the #! forums, and by then I didn't like the OLD style, so, I'm on the dark side, I like it:

thmb_07-02-2011_Dark_Side.png

Conky is the same but everything else has changed:

Dirty:

and Clean:

So much for not posting here! lol

Re: February 2011 Screenshot Thread

First time poster...just started using crunchbang on my netbook (I named my netbook 'bluputer'), and loving it.
I'm especially loving fiddling with tint2. and openbox settings
I really wanted to make my computer simple looking and easy to use on a netbook, maximizing screen real estate.

In openbox this means two things - maximize (almost) everything, and undecorate.  This also creates some occasional problems. So I made my own window buttons in tint2

Right now I've got 3 separate tint2 panels running,
one is just a set of window buttons that is always there above windows
-the X just closes, the big square maximizes and undecorates, the medium square returns things to an unmaximized state and decorates, and the line iconifies.  The arrow is equivalent to an <alt-tab> and the spiral is a special custom script I wrote that toggles the other two tint2 docks (either killing them entirely, setting them to autohide or making them stay there permanently).

The other two are set to autohide by default - and include the standard panel (top, next to buttons) and the launcher panel.
2gv7u3n.png

This is how they look when both open.

Here's a maximized chrome browser with decorations still on, the decorated part is resting below my translucent tint2 dock (I removed all the buttons in openbox, since I don't need them)

eth0ro.png

If I want more space in the browser, I just hit that maximize button to undecorate, then hit the spiral button a few times...
214cco6.png

Note that even this way, the panel is (relatively) functional, since I can cycle through windows using just the arrow button.

Anyway, that's been my convoluted, but fun weekend project.

bobrossw, could you share those desktop files for all the window functions in tint2? That looks like a great idea smile

EDIT: Oops, There's the stuff in the tint2rc thread! Sorry mate!

if anyone else is interested...I went with mostly general tips on how to do each step rather than showing entire files, since I'm not terribly organized and it would be more confusing than helpful...still the concept is sound and works great.  If anyone needs more detail on something I'm happy to help.

Mahatman - glad you liked it...my .desktop files actually link to individual .sh scripts each calling a single line -  like this:

xdotool key alt+shift+m

I realized later that this is somewhat inelegant and the .desktop files should work by just calling that code themselves...but I'm too lazy to go back and change it...I'm just assuming it would work though.

Incidentally this idea came from a critique I had of Jolicloud (which is on my wife's netbook): it runs gnome, but locks it down so that it doesn't have all the pretty effects (fine) and only advanced users can customize it.  To me this defeats the whole purpose of going with a heavier desktop manager like gnome.  If you're going to make the distro harder to customize, but more idiot-proof...why not use tint2 and openbox (and their HTML overlay), which can be used to create a very similar UI that uses much fewer resources...for that matter, they could probably just use Openbox and HTML... /endrant

amidoinitrite?

Yes you are, mate. I'd personally autohide the tint2, but that'd probably be more of an aesthetic choice than a functional one. I like the term tones. There's a thread where you can post up your .Xdefaults colors if you feel like sharing, btw.

@Him, I like that classic horror movie wallpaper, cool setup. BTW, what happened with bodhi linux?
@omns, I like the overall look you got there, reminds me #! 9.04. Very cool chrome transparency, what compositor are you using?

Re: February 2011 Screenshot Thread

There are so many creative/cool screenshots here and it seems to just get better every month.

@Muzieca - Thanks.  I found a cool building wallpaper and slapped that nice Fluxbox logo on it and it matched perfectly.

@S11 - The "darkside" looks good on you.  Awesome burning #! logo!

@Bluputerdude - Great desktop, I like what you are doing with those little scripts.

@Gslob - I took your suggestion about making the transparency match in the terminals and it looks much better.  I still can't figure out how to get rid of the little bit of lavender and blue in MoC.  You can see it in the scrot below...

@Aaro - Yeah, Fluxbox got me!  If E17 EVER goes stable I might give it another shot.  smile 

[edit] I am going to replace these screenshots with something else because they don't look as good as they did on my computer.  big_smile  [edit again] Done.

Totally with you there, I've tried E17 a bunch, but every time I try to change settings it gets really crashy.  Not sure I get what the difference between flux and open box is....guess I'll have to check out fluxbox some and see...

Thanks and I have to say, when I see your fluxbox setup I get "itchy"  smile

Iceweasel beta 4 made it almost a must. The "Style" plugin, that got me 1/2 way here, by giving me a dark and grey option when the new black theme came, stopped working.  I didn't like the white option and black was really easy to accept at that time.  smile

I can't remember who it was, gutterslob or rooster that said black was easier on the eyes. So, GS or RC, your were right!! big_smile

I have always liked black ordark wallpapers, my wife like the colourful ones, although, give me a "nature scene" and I'm happy too.  I found Red_Giant_Earth_7_Billion_years_from_now.jpg yesterday on wikipidia I think.  The original is 1010x683 and I couldn't resist it.  The flaming #! was made with a dark red and light red #! slightly offset and smudged, using the font: Char BB. I picked up a few more nice ones like this:

thmb_CB_Solar_System.png

It sits dead centre of my screen.

Got the planets from here as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planets

and made a "few" from the image

This approximate true-color image, taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, shows the view of Victoria Crater from Cape Verde. It was captured over a three-week period, from October 16—November 6, 2006.

found about 25% of the way down the page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mars

While not dark, it is interesting to say the least!

Black is always good. Seriously, if we gave babies Guinness instead of milk, the world would be a better place.
Btw, I get an "Error 500" when I click on that CB_Solar_System thumbnail you just uploaded hmm
Edit: nvm, it loads fine now ... must've been an issue on my end.

Try the MoC themes from post #4 or #6 of this thread and see if it solves your lavender/blue problem. If it works, remember to pass on a word of thanks to the Wise Sage of PV.
