A little change from last time just so I stop bombing this thread with requests...
Is that a tiling wm with a dock? Still xmonad?
Quite a rare combo, I must say. Pretty nice.earsplit wrote:
Could you share your Xresources?
I thought having the colours displayed in the scrot would save you the trouble of asking :-/
Anyways, you just need the colours, right?

Thanks! Sorry I missed the colors in the scrot. I got too excited by them =]
Yes it is still Xmonad. I've been trying to make my Xmonad usable by an untrained user.
It spawns a docky launcher at the bottom to spawn common programs (terminal, chromium, mpd frontend Ario with gui, transmission, vlc, file manager, libreoffice, and recent documents folder). Unfortunately, I don't think there is a way to tell Docky what is currently running and open from Xmonad... Xmonad doesn't seem to report that.
An evolved version of my setup....
- tint2 is now single-dektop mode, added bbpager to compensate
- added 2nd conky, still experimenting with fonts
(obviously fake busy, who would use a layout like that )
I recommend the Gtk+ Native firefox theme which blends the browser nicely with your dekstop.
Finally, something dark, moody, and awesome to fit the #! JWM theme. But the screenfetch output is unreadable.
I also threw the xload in the panel. This is on my old XPS M1210 at work (running the latest kernel source I could get OpenAFS working on as of Friday), so the native res is 1280x800.

Mageia 3 beta 2. Still reasonably buggy at this stage although not at first glance. Superficially a-okay. Release not out till May now, I think. No Catalyst and the Vaio is as quiet as a mouse. Sorry, the free driver was not installed. The confusion arose from the fact that Mageia had announced that this beta would contain no proprietary driver functionality. However, short after they made it available, they released the drivers, which very nicely install themselves without even bothering you with difficult questions. You do however need to activate the tainted repos and install fglrx control center if you want "amdcccle". Still, I think that automatic installation is a touch of class.
Now I have Mageia pimped out like CrunchBang, I am really enjoying it. It has some amazing stuff in the repos, like CakePHP, ZendFramework and Django. Not that I use any of those. However, none of the three - to my knowledge - are in Debian/Ubuntu. It also has "alien", which Fedora doesn't for example. Ok, you can't convert everything with alien and dependency issues are a thorny problem but it didn't half make ripping CrunchBang off so much easier.

Stick a Tint2 on it, Simon.
PS - it should be noted that I had to use alien on a dozen .deb packages.
tint2 is installed but it looks like Manjaro's at the moment, which isn't right.
Are you using a fading resources in for your terminal, or is your window manager handling that. I get a similar effect with rxvt-unicode, but I see something that appears to be a wm config file which is apparently controlling it.
New project? What happened to your NextWM? ...and what's this bipolarbar?
Edit: Never mind. Found it on your github.
That's nice. I like how the inactive term window seems faded. Are you employing the URxvt*fading variable, or are your vim colours already themed like that?
Edit: Oh, Ninjaboy beat me to the question. It may well be a WM thing. Do enlighten us.

Point & Squirt
Yes correct, I am using URxvt*fading variable. It's not handled by the WM (i3), I just happened to have the config file opened when doing the scrot.
But now you got me thinking if I can fade through the wm. Interesting.
