Re: Only Gtk2 or Command Line Interface

Instead gsimplecal - in tint2 config:

clock_lclick_command = xterm -bg "rgb:51/52/53" -fg "rgb:aa/aa/aa" -geometry 20x10-5-30 -T 'Date' -e bash -c "ncal -1 && sleep 10"
clock_rclick_command = xterm -bg "rgb:51/52/53" -fg "rgb:aa/aa/aa" -geometry 56x10-5-30 -T 'Calendar' -e bash -c "ncal -3 && sleep 15"
clock_tooltip = %A %d %B

or calendar in conky.

* Instead of zathura (pdf viewer) - opening PDF with Iceweasel current practical solution.

What i miss?
Zathura (the light weight PDF reader, but i am not going to install it because it's a GTK3 app) looking for a lightweight replacement.
FlashPlayer I am not going to install it, so far from what i read... there is still no better that approximated. In the end, I will not install at all. Hope HTML5 will rule all the flash videos on the Net soon or later.

recommend anything lighter GTK2/CLI application on this thread.
P.S. There is no need for detailed, just show some names for non time consuming big_smile

Regards,
Nili

Re: Only Gtk2 or Command Line Interface

great!  Ill put some of those tools for the test. loved the speedtest-cli, I never thought about looking for one instead of gooogling and clicking in the first  link. As for torrents, i usually use ctorrent, simple commandline thing... I never tried using magnetic links with it though.

may be one should just go back to them old days where you just compile and install just what you need and no more deb's either, all command line get rid of this windows stuff and go black screen commano line Linux mode wink oh yeah and get rid of this mouse thing too -- just an idea ..  neutral

For me?

No Display Managers! `startx` FTW!

Automate it by adding:

exec startx -- vt7

To ~/.bash_profile (or ~/.zprofile if you have upgraded your shell).

Window manager? dwm baby!

The panel is included in dwm's massive 1MiB runtime memory usage (cf. Openbox's ~10MiB).

File manager? I use the shell for file manipulation  cool

If pushed, I would say ranger is the best alternative and very good for image previews -- better than thunar and all that stupid tumbler nonsense...

Nice stuff News Plus!

I like calendar in a conky - 9 months with this month in the centre: 2015_06_20_13_38_22_532x585_Sector11.jpg read it and close it!

Also some other options for "ncal" and an interactive one from "zenity": 2015_06_20_13_46_57_586x789_Sector11.jpg

So this works as well:

clock_lclick_command = zenity --calendar
clock_rclick_command = xterm -bg "rgb:51/52/53" -fg "rgb:aa/aa/aa" -geometry 56x10-5-30 -T 'Calendar' -e bash -c "ncal -3 && sleep 15"
clock_tooltip = %A %B %d

2015_06_20_13_55_15_1920x1080_Sector11.jpg

Options - gotta love options!

Re: Only Gtk2 or Command Line Interface

@Nili et al:

cal vs ncal

they are the same believe it or not ... check the man page of either

NAME
     cal, ncal — displays a calendar and the date of Easter

SYNOPSIS
     cal [-3hjy] [-A number] [-B number] [[month] year]
     cal [-3hj] [-A number] [-B number] -m month [year]
     ncal [-3bhjJpwySM] [-A number] [-B number] [-s country_code] [[month] year]
     ncal [-3bhJeoSM] [-A number] [-B number] [year]
     ncal [-CN] [-H yyyy-mm-dd] [-d yyyy-mm]

ncal can do a few more things though.

Therefore 'ncal -b' to display the same as 'cal' gives the layout of 'cal' with the power of 'ncal'.

'cal -N' actually changes the command to 'ncal' and therefore has all the functions of 'ncal'
'ncal -C' changes the function to 'cal' and looses the functions of 'ncal'

That's why I use 'ncal -b' to get a 'cal' layout without loosing the 'ncal' functions

Display Easter for this year:

 20 Jun 15 | 15:54:20 ~
    $ ncal -C -e
Usage: cal [general options] [-hjy] [[month] year]
       cal [general options] [-hj] [-m month] [year]
       ncal [general options] [-bhJjpwySM] [-s country_code] [[month] year]
       ncal [general options] [-bhJeoSM] [year]
General options: [-NC31] [-A months] [-B months]
For debug the highlighting: [-H yyyy-mm-dd] [-d yyyy-mm]
 
 20 Jun 15 | 15:54:27 ~
    $ cal -N -e
 5 April 2015
 
 20 Jun 15 | 15:58:17 ~
    $ ncal -e
 5 April 2015
 
 20 Jun 15 | 15:58:28 ~
    $ 

It's a win-win situation!

'ncal' or 'ncal -b' = awesomeness!

Now if you really want to play: jcal  - UNIX-cal-like tool to display Jalali calendar  ]:D

    $ jcal
   Khordaad 1394    
Sh Ye Do Se Ch Pa Jo
                   1
 2  3  4  5  6  7  8
 9 10 11 12 13 14 15
16 17 18 19 20 21 22
23 24 25 26 27 28 29
30 31  

and one more:  xcal - a graphical calendar with memos and reminder alarms

I added some stuff to my post ... I see 'calendar' is prejudice to the northern hemisphere!

Jun 21*	Summer Solstice

that would be

Jun 21*	Winter Solstice

here.

I use "remind - sophisticated calendar and alarm program" as well ... but I use it in a conky here's the terminal output for this month as well:
2015_06_20_16_31_59_202x517_Sector11.png 2015_06_20_16_38_10_900x900_Sector11.png

Another app that fits this thread.
