Desktop Screenshots

Description:

Yeah, this is a group where I thought we could post
screenshots of our desktops. Why? well, I like looking
at other ppl's desktops and configurations, they give me
Ideas I can't possibly have with my current IQ.

So please! if you have a very nice desktop, don't be shy,
put it up here!

please use bbcode when u post, makes it easier for
other users to view ur screenshot, just put "[url]" in
front of the link and "[/url]" after... then it will look
like this http://www.link.to.ur.amazing.screenshot.html
Thank u for ur consideration!

services one can use to upload pics and then share the link:

if you know of any others, let me know, ok?

You think you have a killer desktop? prove it! :D

 More term nonsense

I actually find .Xdefaults color scheming rather soothing.

I don't think you ever menioned it, do you use a tiling window manager? Or a single term and split it with something like tmux?

I have been playing with a few that reload-configs-on-the-fly. Conky doesn't really play well with too many of them though.

Depends on the screenshot.
The one above is just Terminator (I think) running dvtm in my Openbox session.

This, on the other hand, is a tiling WM (ScrotWM)

Oh, I forgot to mention; you can pipe conky output to a lot of the bars/panels that come with a few tiling WMs. Eg: get dzen for DWM or Musca and you'll be able to display conky info (as long as it's all in 1 line) in them. ScrotWM comes with a 'baraction.sh' script that you can uncomment in the .scrotwm.conf, and it'll pick up the stuff in your .conkyrc.

Some tilers allow you to set padding so that you can have conky (or panels like tint2, for example) placed on top or bottom as well.

Anyone may post and direct link to screen shots (small version and large) on my site bitpic.net. It's Drupal so it's Create content -> Image, then upload. Yes, tags are required. Please use descriptive tags.

@TheRob
Why fail?
Looks good for a prelim, I'd say.
I'd use it (or at least the folder icons) if I needed a glossy blue setup.
_________________________

I've always loved dvtm. Use it a lot from the framebuffer tty on old hardware, but I wanted something with a bit more... err... wallpaper (lol), so here's dvtm in a fullscreen Urxvt terminal running on the lightest WM I know of, Ratpoison.

Weird combo, but works well for my CLI-only needs.

Day setup

Night setup

Now I need to conjure a script to change wallpaper and .Xdefaults on the fly....

Cheers~

Nice, I used to use dvtm too, until that time that a system message cut across the divider instead of being contained in one pane; that messed up the screen and since they were diagnostic messages from the wifi, it happened over and over. I hadn't really gone further investigating (to get less verbose messages, etc) since a friend mentioned tmux; I use that now when I can. I still keep dvtm as a fallback, though.

Funny, though, we've made all these advances in graphics and GUIs, and here we are trying to make it look like DOS :D At least, that's what I think to myself while I configure the screen to output more text...

No man!! Motorcycling is my life, scripting I just do cos I never seem to be happy with how 'default' stuff works ;-P ... made the script, btw (was just lazy before)

Honestly, I'm pretty much a noob, code-wise. I'm pretty handy at simple stuff like Bash, Lua and some Perl, but suck at Haskell, Ruby, etc.

I never really saw the need for a DevArt account (even though my actual profession is graphic arts & photography related). Didn't think most people outside the usual Linux forums or here would even care for CLI/term styling. It's just something I share for fun, anyway.... don't really want a 'fanbase' or whatever.

Shame you dropped the icon project. :(
I know icon theming is pretty tedious, though.

^the above reply was for The_Rob, btw.

This one is for shedied,
What's even more ironic is that I'm in the graphic arts field (day job) and yet seem to prefer CLI for a lot of my computing. Maybe it's just a side effect of staring at Lightzone/Cinepaint/Corel Painter/Inkscape interfaces all day. Or maybe it's because typography is a style I always admired but was never good at, and the clarity/sharpness of a desktop filled with Terminus, MonteCarlo, Profont, Artwiz or whatever pixel-font acts as a 'release' for me..... or something like that :-/ (I'm suck at explaining stuff, sorry)

I'm actually a huge fan of Tmux (prefer it to Screen). Anything from the BSD guys tends to be quality. Use it quite often on smaller screens like my netbook

Reason I prefer dvtm is probably aesthetics. I just like how it colorizes the top line of active windows and how the vert-splitting bar doesn't go all the way down to the bottom of the screen. It just seems to heed to the "minimalism = giving negative space the respect it needs" law better than other tiling WM's or terminal multiplexers. Another reason is symmetry. For example; in a tiling WM, if you set a 1pixel border for windows, tiling them horizontally results in the border in-between becoming 2pixels (1pix from the left window + 1 pix from right)... I always hated that!!... totally throws my symmetrical sensibilities off the wall. (yeah, I know I'm probably more anal than most with regards to trivial stuff like this, but I can't change who I am)

Dvtm also has the benefit of needing a really simple config.h to get working. I usually just edit a couple of lines and recompile to get my desired level of efficiency.

Oh, and I had the same problem with some WiCD-curses notifications on earlier versions, shedied. I did sent a half-working patch to the devs, and I assume they perfected it and incorporated it to more recent versions, cos I haven't encountered such problems for a while. (not really sure if it's 100% fixed or not, though)

Apologies for the long text-wall ;-|

Cheers.

@gutterslob I thought nobody could beat my anal-ness. A miscolored line on a plain border would force me to check what I'd missed (e.g, was the date or status supposed to start there) or stand up to get a cup of coffee. Thanks for the heads up on dvtm and for the little art lesson. I could only be so succinct in my sig

With awesome window manager at least there's a float mode, so while I had no net for a few days I had this:

http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/7813/myshott1.jpg (warning same but BAM huge)
Am just a hack and I use the art to distinguish the windows; normally there'd be a window for mail and another for internet.

When slashdot ran a survey, How many icons on your desktop, a lot of respondents say, So what if I got plenty, who looks at the desktop anyway? These poor people, never seen a transparent terminal, or worse, are stuck on Windows. *me shakes head and answers, *I* do :)

real nice cli - like desktop :)

A fanbase... yeah I guess if you want that
then desktop themeing is prolly the wrong
place to look for it indeed :D

Yeah I dropped the icon theme... a guy once
described me as "impulse driven", and

Hi! Have I ignored some of your messages
or something? if so, sry, not my intention :(

About the configs however, I never
export them
as I change my config like
7 times a day so it would be a lot of
configs....

...right now the colorscheme and config
looks nothing like in the screenshot, I
scrapped the aqua look and I'm now aiming
more for a marble/graphite look sry.

However, I don't see the big deal with
the bespin configs, is just clicking a
few buttons and that's it :) Takes like
2 min tops to create a suitable bespin
config for you.

Shouldn't be too hard, considering that
the default looks very good already, so
if you just go from there and change the
stuff you want, you're off to a good start :)

I think the most important thing to keep
in mind is the color scheme, almost any
config will look good with the right usage
of colors.

Yeah you keep tryin, it's not that hard, rly :D

+1 for not using a dockbar. i know you used awn, but it doesnt count as a dockbar cause you used lucido mode. Its not a fail, although you could use a little work with your window decoration.

@Rob and @ gutterslob thanks for the greetings guys!

@gutterslob agree with you re: borders, especially for a laptop's limited screen real estate. So I have a key that toggles them off (back on for quick resize) but I also found a theme with slimmer borders.
