After 4 hours I wasn't able to get scrotwm configured properly so I settled for openbox with as much terminus as possible.

Could I have your conky/tint2 configs? I like this setup, very basic.

Finally back on Linux after dealing almost exclusively with Macs for the past two months - this is just a basic setup I'm going to work on later. The tint2 was grabbed from the tint2 config thread somewhere, moved to the bottom and tweaked for some additional opacity.

I'm also trying out samba sharing with nautilus and I've noticed that nautilus no longer takes over your desktop when you install it, as it has been wont to do in the past.

@hypnotoad. Is that a mac? How have you themed the top panel?

An application called nocturne that handles screen inversion. I set it to invert only the menu bar. I was actually hoping it would come out as a flat black, but it didn't. This is a bit more of an in-depth explanation, although there really isn't very much to the process.

Alright well thank you for trying anyway, I'll have to play around with it some more.

#10 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Xfce Themes and Icons » 2011-08-09 15:59:14

I did install the faenza theme folders to both usr/share/.icons and home/username/.icons. The permissions are set to root and read only (in usr) and for my username (in home) but they only seem to appear sporadically. For instance - the icon for Thunar changes in Docky but the icons for chromium, pidgin, etc. stay the same.

Interesting...I have all four variations of Faenza on here.  If I remember correctly, I think II downloaded mine from GNOME-Look and never had a problem with them..

Looking back, perhaps the problem was that I attempted to move the individual folders from the package to the /.icons folder, rather than running the INSTALL script (which I simply could not get to run).

However, I had the same issue with … tent=46402 this icon set, which appears to be pretty straight forward.

#12 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Xfce Themes and Icons » 2011-08-08 16:58:43

Okay - the icon theme is faenza. I moved them (faenza, faenza-dark, and faenza-darkest) into the .icons folders - they are the ones that typically appear as standard gnome icons -- although as I said before the navigational icons do change. What is odd is that faenza-black, which supposedly runs on top of the standard faenza icon set, manages to show up in Thunar. This occurs regardless of GTK theme as far as I can tell. I have tried a few.

Still configuring XFCE to my liking, many thanks to Kexolino for the inspiration.

#14 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Xfce Themes and Icons » 2011-08-08 15:45:34

I am having a similar issue. I have tried editing the permissions of the files in usr/share/.icons, as well as moving the icons to home/username/.icons.The icons appear under Settings > Appearance but what seems to occur is that while the icons change for some things (back/forward button at the top of the file manager + browser) the icons for folders within the file manager change to the default gnome theme. Any ideas as to why?

@hypnotoad: No XFCE?

Mine, kinda finished:

If you look at what I was downloading in Transmission you'll see that I'm getting there. I'm actually posting this from a fresh LMDE install.

Nice looking openbox setup, by the way.

Wow, that's very nice. What is the xfce theme, if you don't mind my asking?

Edit: Well I'm guessing it's called Atolm as well, I'll have to take a look around. I have been meaning to give the #! iteration of xfce a try.

Yes I've looked into it and I think you're right. I haven't been on this forum for a while but it appears that scrotwm is growing in popularity.

At the risk of exposing my considerable ignorance, might I ask what WM you're using? Could I perhaps obtain the details of your setup?

i think "design" or "optical appeal" can be a valid factor to decide for any kind of product (e.g. i buy some shirt not only 'cause it's warm = function, but also 'cause it looks good. goes equally well for cars, furniture, ... )

Agreed. If people want to pay more for computers that are esthetically pleasing I see no reason why it would be any more pretentious or annoying than owning a nice car/house. Macs are great if you can afford the luxury. Their userbase is a bit vehement or overly enthusiastic at times, but you could honestly say the same of MS or Linux users.
