OSNews, Generic OSes The last time we did this, it was still 2010, so it's been a while. Since I'm having a hard time finding interesting things to write about today (unless you guys want a story about Apple losing another iPhone prototype at a bar, or about Samsung's god-given quest to launch a tablet/smartphone for each number between 3 and 10), let's do one of those old-fashioned and quaint 'show us your desktop!'-things.

Interesting. I spend most of my time in Arch as I'm just more comfortable there; I feel that I have a fine-grained control of the OS and I'm much more familiar with what's going on at any given moment. Windows exists on my laptop for the purposes of rooting my older Android phone (there's some irony!) and playing a few Windows-only games that don't work well under Wine. That's why it's so Spartan. ;)

I use LibreOffice instead of MS Office -- I actually prefer its interface to the modern Office versions -- and various other free and open source packages in Windows. In fact, Windows itself and a couple of games are the only commercial components of my Windows installation.

I've been considering a regression back to Windows XP and saving my Windows 7 license for the next desktop I build. It would probably be more compatible with my older games anyway (Thief series, Star Trek Armada, etc).

It's pretty much a neglected use case in Xfce, now. You can't really recreate the CDE/Xfce 1&2 panel any more, the 'minimise to desktop' implementation is pretty spartan. The above examples are about as close as you can get.

It's a 33mhz 68k with 128mb of ram and a 4gb hdd. I've sicne sold it and was running up to date hardware.. but I've regressed back down a few notches.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/helfer/6104830094/in/photostream

Description :
My current set up. It's a bit cramped but functional. I sold my PC to raise money for a trip as well as my other laptops. So I'm stuck using ol' Faithful for a bit ;)

Toshiba Portege 3110ct
Pentium II 300mhz
128MB PC100 RAM
40GB IDE HDD
800x600 10" LCD
Intel i855 IGP
Single USB 1.1 slot currently with a 64GB USB key attached
Single PCMCIA/Cardbus slot with a PCNet b/g/n WiFi card

Running Crunchbang Linux with the Liquorix kernel.

OpenBox is the Window Manager.

I use XChat for IRC, Pidgin for IM, Terminator for my shell, GEdit for text editor, links2 in graphics mode for my browser unless I have to have JavaScript, in which case I fire up Midori.

I read eBooks on it using Calibre's viewer app. Works surprisingly well for ePub and PDFs and what not.

Over all, as long as I watch what I'm doing, the laptop runs great for its specs. I usually have at least two instances of links2 running, an ssh session, a terminal open, file manager, pidgin with at least one chat, and xchat with 6 channels open, going at all times.

Thom is thinking of changing to XFCE, I finished changing from KDE3 earlier this year. This is XFCE 4.8 on Ubuntu Lucid (10.04), running on a netbook, powering an external monitor.

Note the two versions of Windows, 98 for Bible software, and 2000 for some old astronomy software and Word Perfect 10. The Bible software gets used weekly for my job.

The astronomy software has been replaced by Linux versions. The Word Perfect documents are too complex for LibreOffice to import, but as I never change them, they all had PDF versions made. I haven't run Windows 2000 in over a year.

Two other points: XFCE runs easily with 256 meg. of RAM. It does a great job of launching and running programs. It looks decent.

The wallpaper is a photo I took of a Song Sparrow in the University of Wisconsin - Madison Aboretum, and processed with GIMP.

FYI, if you're still wondering how to get the scrollwheel to sloppy focus correctly, check out Wizmouse or Katmouse. The reason it doesn't sloppy focus by default on Windows (even when you enable focus follows mouse) is due to conflicts with a few legacy apps.

I use sloppy on linux but I find it unpleasant on Windows. Know of any way to control the auto-raise delay?

To control x-mouse features in Windows, under the key
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]

is a value "UserPreferencesMask"
the first hex value, add 41h to the first value for focus follows mouse + auto-raise, or, add 01h to the first value for focus follows mouse without auto-raise (which is what I have it set to)

For example, the value for my key was "9E 3E 07 80 12 00 00 00"
I edited it to "9F 3E 07 80 12 00 00 00" to get "focus follows mouse"
If I had wanted full X-Mouse, I'd have edited it to "D9 3E 07 80 12 00 00 00"

To control the delay, set "ActiveWndTrkTimeout" (in the same key to the decimal value you want in milliseconds (i.e. setting it to 333 is 333ms, or, 1/3 of a second)

You can turn on the focus follows mouse feature via the accessibility control panel (I believe), but auto-raise is activated as well. Editing the registry by hand is the only way to get sloppy focus without auto-raise.

Okay, try this: open an application with 2 or > panes, manually focus one, then try to scroll in the other.

Granted, focus within an application isn't affected, but I only use one app that it actually matters to me (the wonderful Total Commander). It'd be nice if the left or right panes activated based on where the cursor was without me having to click, but since that is the only app I use that it matters, I'm not worried about it. I'd rather make accommodations for one app manually than install one that might affect such behavior.

I'll note that the KDE apps I use on a regular basis also don't respect sloppy focus within the app (or, if they do, I haven't noticed).

XFCE - great idea

I've been using XFCE on my professional desktop for quite a while (see last year's: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/2WlQcmMAPccH4hFAJ5vhAg?feat=di...).

Here are a couple pics from the current setup:
https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/vz2hTEiyDSD_cfUDuS4PXA?feat=di...
https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/8qGt8F1NaWauMjY4IAU4WQ?feat=di...

As I comment on the second pic from this year, the "Window Menu" panel applet has ruined me for all other window managers. They don't have something that works as well as it, and worse, they have similar things that behave differently ... I just can't switch tasks as efficiently without it.

The other nice thing about XFCE is the gentile, subtle, composing that never rips, tears, or distorts. (I've tried unity, gnome with compiz, and kwin, and they all flake out at some point in my dock-undock-suspend-unsuspend-dock cycle.)

I must ask: Do you enjoy the ultra-widescreen 1366x768 resolution, or does it annoy you? I'm still getting used to my D620's 1280x800, which is less extreme than what you have. My last laptop was an Apple PowerBook G3, with a 1024x768 res. I miss my vertical pixels, especially in the console.

It's also annoying on Windows 7 with that fat toolbar (I know I can shrink it but I like the default look, very KDE 3.x).

That's the native resolution of the panel, or what the DDC returns for it.

Most of the portable systems I've owned in the past had terrible LCD screens, this being one of my first "newer" systems left me fairly impressed. Easy on the eyes, text is clear and colours vibrant.

By comparison I have a LCD TV connected over VGA on another system with a native resolution of 1360x768, and it is visibly harder on the eyes.

I figured it was the native resolution, just as 1280x800 is on mine. My question was more about whether the extreme horizontal vs narrow vertical space was a problem for you. Personally I prefer a 5:4 ratio, as in my 1280x1024 desktop LCD, and I'm trying to get used to the laptop. It's the same width as the desktop but I'm losing a lot of vertical space.

I know that 224 pixels may not seem like much, but it's enough to make me consider moving my Windows 7 taskbar to the side, and configuring Xfce in a similar layout. In fact, I'd say the only thing better about the laptop's widescreen is that movies are just barely letterboxed.

I will also say that my desktop has a much more vibrant and natural picture, and obviously has a much higher color bit depth than the laptop. There is some noticeable dithering on the laptop's screen that makes me think it's a cheap 18-bit unit. I doubt I'll be able to find a 24-bit replacement panel for it, or if I did, that it would be worth the cost on this already four year old machine.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=CARAT9XO

The wm_y/x scripts control placement, the w/h scripts control size. The scripts ending with _cu are cumulative ie. they grok the current window placement/size and add/subtract from it.

Argument syntax is simply wm_*.sh number number, where the first number is the divisor (ie. divide screen axis in to X many pieces) and the second is the multiplier (ie. place/resize window to X many of those pieces). The _cu scripts accept negative values for the multiplier.
Example args:
wm_x_cu.sh 20 -1 #move window 1/20th of the screen left
wm_w.sh 10 2 #make window width 2/10ths of screen width

You'll have to modify the scripts a bit, yourself, as the screen resolution, panel width and window border variables aren't dynamic and are currently set for my 1920x1080 screen with 2*20px panels and 19*2*2*2 window borders. I could have used xrandr to at least get the current screen res but I was using a pretty old rig when I wrote the scripts and was afraid of latency. So, yeah, if your windows are overlapping, or slowly wandering up/down inappropriately, it's probably because those variables aren't set correctly.

IIRC, I haven't written the scripts in such a way that they'll work with non-whole numbers. If you try to divide your 1024 screen by something like 7, it probably won't work. Also, for the cumulative scripts, the sleep period between moving/resizing and re-focussing the window is only necessary if you use sloppy focus and might need to be adjusted, depending upon how responsive your window manager is. I find that timing works fine in compiz but not in Xfwm. I also don't indent any of my code so... sorry.

My shortcuts are as follows, in case you're wondering:

Shift+Win+WASD for the cumulative move scripts. Ctrl+Win+WASD for the cumulative resize scripts.
Shift/Ctrl+Alt+QWERTASDFG for the x/w scripts.
Shift/Ctrl+Alt+ZXCVB for the y/h scripts.

Olwm/Olvwm, the window manager for OpenWindows, is still available in some Linux distributions as well as in the ports/pkgsrc for various BSDs. Some quick searching revealed the following, so it's still out there:

ftp://ftp.NetBSD.org/pub/pkgsrc/current/pkgsrc/wm/olvwm/README.htm...
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/olvwm
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/olwm

Also, on Google, I saw, but didn't track down, hints that OpenBSD and FreeBSD have it too, and even possibly Ubuntu, which makes sense as Debian has it.

If you're looking for more than just the window manager, I'm not sure if one could also find the utilities (or replacements) that went along with the wm in Sun's Open Windows desktop, though XVfilemanager does exist: http://step.polymtl.ca/~coyote/xvfilemgr_main.html

See http://xwinman.org/olvwm.php for a link to a tarball with icons, menus specs, etc. to jazz up olvwm.

Gnome 3 annoyed me when it was released, so I stayed with Gnome 2 while I looked for tools to replace all the little glue stuff Gnome does (screen locker, run dialogue, panel, etc.) and wrote my own tiny session manager to allow for logout and root-less halt/reboot (http://i-know-nothing.co.cc/jsession).

I mostly start stuff with keyboard shortcuts (via XBindKeys) and Kupfer. The window decorations are the most compact emerald theme I could make with the theme creator GUI thing (different colour for windows not in focus, of course). The terminal's rxvt-unicode, and Conky's on the bottom-right.

At my full time job it's a shared terminal so I can't customize it at all, however the screen is a maximised browser interface full time so there's actually no need for it. At my part time job I'm stuck using WinXP for bench testing purposes, but the machine is more or less mine to customize to my heart's content. Oddly enough, I haven't done much other than dropping to classic desktop mode (Win98/2000-ish) and putting up a nice backdrop. I'm not tied to my desk at the part-time, as I'm the only IT support staff and I'm always on the move during the work day.

On my personal machines, especially the laptop, I find that the time spent customizing in my off hours greatly improves my morale sitting in front of the machine for long periods of time. I do most of my side work on the laptop, and that consists of mostly web design and development, and the occasional VNC support session. I do all of that from Arch, as I am most comfortable working in that environment. Having a low-eyestrain theme and a logical window arrangement with good keyboard shortcuts makes my workflow quite fluid. The Windows 7 side is pretty much all entertainment, so it is appropriately Spartan.

Not much of a desktop, but showing the firefox with the vim addon and nosquint. Nice and relaxed on the eyes when working long hours.

I dont use any file manager either. Got thunar installed, but almost never use it. Bash is way faster and more practical for anything but finding photos with random names...

Hoping to become totally mouse-independent pretty soon ;)

This setup pretty much scares off most intruders.. Dvorak keyboard layout helps quite a bit too ;)

The upper right corner shows battery state in percentage and time remaining, wifi SSID and signal strength, currently playing track on MPD, time/date, and the tiling layout.

The applications on display in "dirty" are The Widget Factory to show off my Gtk theme (which I have Qt set to follow in qtconfig), Luakit, and urxvt with a zsh prompt. I also use Vim, irssi, ncmpc++, Iceweasel 6 with Pentadactyl and Mutt like tons of other people, but my configurations for those are pretty stock.

This is sort of a "screenshot within a screenshot" post, since I'm hosting these images on my Sheevaplug running Debian Squeeze.

This is all running on a Dell Latitude E6410 laptop with a 2.4GHz i5, on-die GPU, 2GB DDR3 (trying to seat the second 2GB DIMM has been... fun), and a 250GB HDD.

I am in flux with editors right now. I have used UltraEdit forever, but am liking Sublime and have E installed as well. UltraEdit will probably win in the end, but I love some of the simple but useful features of Sublime and E, like multi-select/edit.

The low RAM/CPU usage is a side effect, although a welcome one when I'm doing Java programming for my university courses or running multiple VMs with GUIs. I just like that I can open a bunch of windows on a given virtual desktop, and they'll automatically arrange themselves well, optimizing screen space. It's very keyboard-oriented, to the point where I can completely shut off my touchpad and nub-mouse and still be completely productive.

TBH I find it pretty mental as well. Don't get me wrong I like a nice responsive system ... but these days even Win7 tricked out runs pretty well on a £250 desktop.

I have some older systems (SGI Indy, Sun Blade 100) and even those can run KDE 3.5 with OpenBSD perfectly fine ... not too much lag.

I think it is more of a hobby trying to configure the environments themselves than anything else. It is a bit involved.

I'm actually a lot more productive with Window Maker than with anything else. In the past I've run XFCE, KDE (1.1.2 on Mandrake all the way to 4.2), maybe others, but I'm always more productive in Window Maker. The reason behind it is that I always know exactly where to look for everything I need, no matter how many monitors I have (far right is the dock, second block down is the date/time, below that is Docker, below that is the screen locker, no surprises). When I gave XFCE a shot a couple months ago, I gave it up after a couple hours because it just doesn't work for me on dual-head, while WM is still perfect.

Indeed, I have a Core i5, 4gb ram but I use Openbox because I find it fast and comfortable and would use it even if it was heavier on resources.

That said it's certainly not a bad thing when the system does all you want of it and is also very lean, as it means you have alot or ram available to that which you really boot into the system for: applications. (and I regularly use alot of memory hungry apps)

My Arch 64-bit system uses 129mb ram when fully booted into x, that's less than XP used on this machine and that was 32-bit (64-bit code is ~30% larger).

In short, I find it doubtful that with the hardware standards of today people are using lean window managers because of resource usage, but the small memory footprint is still a nice side-effect.

I don't know why I always believed that you used OS X as your main OS?

Haiku

I figured I may as well post my Haiku install before the comments are locked:

It's running on a Pentium IV HT 3.2GHz machine with 2GB RAM and SATA hard drives. A bit overkill for Haiku but it's definitely the most responsive OS in my house! ;)

I opened up every app in the Applications folder except the Installer to show how conservative Haiku is with memory. All those apps and less than 250MB consumed! I love it.

I've got an ibook G4, an AMD64 3200 desktop for a Media Center PC, a P3 for another Media Center in the bedroom, a P4 for a 14 track audio recording/video editing workstation in my studio, and another P3 for a file/dhcp/dns server for the network these are all attached to. They all run Dream Studio, my custom distribution (dream.dickmacinnis.com), and look like this: http://dream.dickmacinnis.com/forum/sites/default/files/images/4~*~...

My operating system is Ubuntu 10.10. The gtk theme is GTK2-notif2(heavily modified by me). I like the Solaris motif look along with modern icon set and nautilus-elementary.
