Don't bother. But you're still off topic.

Billtoo,

That's a very nice looking Slacko. Wink I saw the full background of the same pic in the woof-CE build thread, but didn't realize until this pic the green window theme that makes it all 'pop'. Which window theme is that?? Also, I bet if you made the sidebar tray transparent, and also the bottom tray transparent, that look would come exploding right off your screen & cause ya to want to go hiking! Very Happy


P.S. Can't believe you've got a Presario too. Bought mine in summer 2005, bet we have the same one. I replaced the chip in it, and boosted the ram to 8GB, otherwise it's still churning on as good as new stuff (of course, I've no graphics cards to worry about).

Me also!

Couldn't resist not copying ... so I did a reverse image lookup and grabbed ... http://gedblog.com/wp-content/uploads/LCARS_Schematic_iPadPro.png

Big thanks to BigPup.

PS : for reference regarding the htop display at the bottom of screen ....

I use xterm as my default terminal, so rxvt is otherwise pretty much unused. So I set that to have no window title ... etc. in jwmrc configuration

<Group>
<Name>rxvt</Name>
<Option>nolist</Option>
<Option>noborder</Option>
<Option>notitle</Option>
<Option>sticky</Option>
<Option>nopager</Option>
</Group>

I also have a jwm startup command to launch

<StartupCommand>rxvt-desktop</StartupCommand>

where rxvt-desktop is a script in the PATH that runs rxvt executing htop

#!/bin/sh
rxvt +sb -geometry 60x6+800+700 -fn xft:Monospace:pixelsize=20 -e htop

Those sizes, positions and font choices were refined by trial and error for my particular screen resolution (1400x900 monitor scaled down to 1280x800 resolution).

Just find a good image for the desktop and move and position icons.

Search Google for lcars desktop wallpaper

Bigpup, you made my week!

I've been surfing the LCARSCom.net images all evening and just drooling figuring which one I am going to try first. Definitely the most influential show in my life by a long stretch. Yup, there I said it. I bet aliens watch them (the old tv signals of the trek shows that left Earth decades ago) and think "damn, this species on its blue ord is a massive star-faring race....and they travel faster than light from the stars!!"....haha Wink

I used mtpaint to transform the colours (hue) so that that starship wallpaper looks like its on red-alert.

As I use pcmanfm --desktop for desktop icons (and wallpaper) I added a script to detect whether booted as though a full install ... in which case the normal wallpaper is used, or a frugal install ... in which case the red-alert wallpaper is used i.e. ...

added
<StartupCommand>sleep 6;/home/user/bin/wallpaper-liveboot.sh</StartupCommand>
to .jwmrc where that script runs
Code:
#!/bin/bash
TST=`cat /proc/cmdline | grep UUID`
if [ -z "$TST" ]
then
  pcmanfm --set-wallpaper=/home/user/Pictures/schematic_1280x800-liveboot.png
else
  pcmanfm --set-wallpaper=/home/user/Pictures/schematic_1280x800.png
fi

For Debian I use pure Debian repositories only, no contrib nor non-free and have a cut-down version installed as though a full install along with live-boot also being installed so a empty /live/filesystem.squashfs (main sfs) can be booted where the full install is the save area (partition based save folder). A frugal type install, but with a empty main.sfs and everything in the "savefolder", which enables sfs's to be loaded and the option to boot without any changes being saved (persistence persistence-read-only kernel boot parameter). I do also have a script similar to save2flash that supports flushing changes to disk if so desired (on demand).

More often I boot as though a full install nowadays, but the frugal choice is handy as you can delete .mozilla and .cache/mozilla folders before starting firefox in a frugal boot ... which starts firefox clean (no bookmarks, addons/extensions ...etc.). Frugal is also handy for trying things out (testbed) where a reboot 'undoes' all of the changes.

It took a few tries of using mtpaint's Effects, Transform Colours, Hue (slider) to get the desired red-alert type colours, but the final result is pleasing.

Normal


Red Alert (frugal ... reminder to manually save if desired)


Note how for some icons I created a transparent icon that I assigned to some desktop icons, to leave just a textual icon that can be positioned on the wallpaper background image to better blend in with the general theme.

No menu button, nor a showdesktop button as right mouse click of the clock brings up the menu and left mouse click activates showdesktop.

Hey, guys,

Have you noticed? rufwoof is all talk and no picture. Laughing

He does not know (?) how to upload a screen capture of the beautiful (?)
desktop he's talking about. (Now where is that tongue-in-cheek icon?) Laughing

BFN.
