Thread: blackbox - the faster windows manager

    Re: blackbox - the faster windows manager

    Ah, ok. Looked to me like the SS you posted looked sort of like the KDE3 screenshots from their website. The K menu, anyway

    That's because I use the ubercool dotNEt widget style.

    You forgot to say: "Go go gadget QT compile"

    Now it will fail on you, or become very unstable !

    It doesn't display your porn properly ?
    The stupid aterm has a black foreground font even if my .Xdefaults (linked to .Xresources) says that it should be white. All other window managers put the fonts white. Why doesn't KDE2?

    RTFM for your terminal and then when you launch the terminal, tell it to use the right colors.

    I launch xterm with something like this:

    xterm -aw -b 0 +dc -rw -sb -rightbar -sl 200 -bg black -fg white

    That's how I have it in my blackbox menus, and I even have an alias for that

    Why use command line options when there's a standard config file for that? And also, since I use Debian, menus are automaticlly rewritten when I install or remove apps, so the command line arguments would disappear damn fast.

    Obviously because the 'standard config file' isn't working properly

    And also, since I use *Debian, menus are automaticlly rewritten when I install or remove apps, so the command line arguments would disappear damn fast.
    Dumbass, do you reconfigure all of your apps every time you upgrade?? That's what personal configuration files are for. If you configure your (for example) blackbox menu in the file ~/.blackbox-menu, then you can upgrade bb all you want and you still keep the same menu.

    1. This is KDE's problem. Window Maker, FluxBox, Blackbox, FVWM have no problems with it.

    2. Dumbass yourself if you make your own menus: you import Debian's:
    Code:
    [begin] (Debian)
    
    [exec] (Gaim) {/usr/bin/gaim}
    [exec] (Opera) {/usr/bin/opera}
    [exec] (X-Chat) {/usr/bin/xchat}
    [submenu] (Jeux) {}
     * *[exec] (Wolfenstein) {/home/vince/games/wolf/wolf}
     * *[exec] (Quake 3 Arena) {/home/vince/games/q3a/quake3}
     * *[exec] (Unreal Tournament) {/home/vince/games/ut/ut}
     * *[exec] (Uplink) {/home/vince/games/uplink/uplink}
    [end] * *
    [include] (/etc/X11/fluxbox/fluxbox-menu)
    
    [end]
    Also, when you know hwo to edit your config files, some apps don't need command-line arguments, therefore Debian's menu is all right.

    So what, every time you encounter a problem you just throw your hands in the air and give up entirely? With this mindset, I find it amazing that you ever actually figured out how to install linux in the first place.

    2. Dumbass yourself if you make your own menus: you import Debian's:
    Double dumbass on you!

    Watch this, and be prepared to be amazed:

    Code:
    [begin] (Debian)
    
    [exec] (Gaim) {/usr/bin/gaim}
    [exec] (Opera) {/usr/bin/opera}
    [exec] (X-Chat) {/usr/bin/xchat}
    [exec] (XTerm) {xterm -aw -b 0 +dc -rw -sb -rightbar -sl 200 -bg black -fg white}
    [submenu] (Jeux) {}
     * *[exec] (Wolfenstein) {/home/vince/games/wolf/wolf}
     * *[exec] (Quake 3 Arena) {/home/vince/games/q3a/quake3}
     * *[exec] (Unreal Tournament) {/home/vince/games/ut/ut}
     * *[exec] (Uplink) {/home/vince/games/uplink/uplink}
    [end] * *
    [include] (/etc/X11/fluxbox/fluxbox-menu)
    
    [end]
    It's amazing! You get the Xterm with the right colors, and you get Debian's menu!
