Since it's 2017 already somewhere in the world, lets start a new thread.

Re: Screenshots - 2017

Goodby 2016--we're not going to miss you down here...

So here is my take on the desktop of the new MX-16, of which the reviews so far have been off the charts!

MX-16 (based on Debian Stable) with Xfce 4.12.

I'm actually using the genmon plugin and a script I wrote to parse through a wunderground rss feed. I wanted a different display of information than the plugin was able to provide.

If you're interesting, I can post a link to the script and associated icon files.

Sure, only if it is not too much trouble, I would like to see it.

Re: Screenshots - 2017

Ok y'all, here's how my year starts. Bonus for you, this is the latest version,since I shared it on the Manjaro forums, I've changed out the icons, font and added the Conky. Only thing left is a bit of tweaking of said Conky, I want to add at least a readout from DeadBeef if not controls, along with a torrent read out (currently using QBitTorrent, but that could change as needed).

Oh, and ifn you can't guess, the bottome screen is smaller than the upper one, hence the black bars on the edge.

You mean the notification bubble displaying my current workspace? Just a script I wrote and run on startup. Here it is:

#!/bin/sh

#Name: 		wsp_notify
#Description: 	Using notify-send, pop-up the current workspace number when changing workspaces
#Requires: 	xfce4-notifyd, libnotify, wmctrl
#Debug mode:	bash -xv /path/to/wsp_notify 2>&1 | tee wsp_notify.log

# make sure that only one instance of this script is running per user
lockfile=/tmp/.wsp_notify.$USER.lockfile
if ( set -o noclobber; echo "locked" > "$lockfile") 2> /dev/null; then
  	trap 'rm -f "$lockfile"; exit $?' INT TERM EXIT
  	echo "wsp_notifyDEBUG: Locking succeeded" >&2

  	# on startup, set the CURRENT_WORKSPACE value
  	CURRENT_WORKSPACE=$(($(wmctrl -d | grep \* | cut -d' ' -f1)+1))
  	# get the workspace names (starts at index 2)
	NAMES=(`xfconf-query -c xfwm4 -p /general/workspace_names | grep -v "Value is an array"`)

  	# every second, query the active workspace number and if different from the previous one, send a notification
	while true
	do
		sleep 1
		NEW_WORKSPACE=$(($(wmctrl -d | grep \* | cut -d' ' -f1)+1))	
		NEW_WORKSPACE_NAME="${NAMES[$(($NEW_WORKSPACE-1))]}"
		if [ $CURRENT_WORKSPACE -ne $NEW_WORKSPACE ]; then
		
		    notify-send -t 5 "$(echo Workspace | sed -e :a -e 's/^.\{1,10\}$/ & /;ta')" "<b><span font='110'>$NEW_WORKSPACE</span></b>\n<i>$(echo $NEW_WORKSPACE_NAME | sed -e :a -e 's/^.\{1,17\}$/ & /;ta')</i>"
			
			CURRENT_WORKSPACE=$NEW_WORKSPACE
		fi
	done

# can't create lockfile - notify user and quit
else

  	echo "wsp_notifyDEBUG: Lock failed, check for existing process and/or lock file and delete - exiting." >&2
  	exit 1
fi			

exit 0

Re: Screenshots - 2017

tks

it is exactly a feature I miss on Xfwm4! sometimes I use openbox and it is very nice that desktops changes are poped up!

I miss also directional switching and a fading effect on Xfwm4!

awesome

Fedora 25 & Xfce 4.12

Pretty much the same as in the last 3,4 years, only changed the GTK-theme from Greybird to Zukitwo (less issues with Zukitwo and the thin Greybird-borders have started to annoy me a little bit)...

Xfce4 Numix Grey Theme:
xqtg6lh.png


The main theme is Adwaita, and I took Numix Icon Pack as a base.
I'm not sure that this is the right place but there is Dropbox link to Zip archive: Numix Grey icon pack
Just open Appearance window and drop unpacked folder there.

Dear moderators, if i choose a wrong place, could you move it to the right one, please?

GTK Theme: Cloak-3.20
Icon Theme: AwOkenWhite
WM Style: Default-hdpi
TitleBar Font: Cantarell Oblique 14
System Font: Cantarell 14
Cursor Theme: Breeze
Firefox Stylish Plugin: Pitch Black Global Dark Theme, latest

Maximized windows have no titlebar (Alt + mouse to break it free.)

xfce4-terminal --dropdown hooked to F1 keyboard shortcut.  Little hard to position (not as good as tilda) but managed to get it almost to completely fill the non-panel area.  Lots of tweaks to the preferences to get a look I like.

Two panels.

Top panel has whisker menu, separator,  dockbar-x plugin, and systray plugin.  No indicator plugin.

Left panel has workspace switcher with workspace names 'L' and 'R', launchers for MoodyRain, Firefox, Thunar and Settings Manager, then Orage plugin and action button plugin (set to session menu).

I know I could move dockbar-x and whisker menu to left bar, pin my apps, delete the launchers and make systray sit in a little semi-transparent panel.  Might do that now that I've written it!  I'm on an x131e Thinkpad (great little machine!) and should be maximizing my vertical space.

I will probably also switch to the i3 window manager on top of remaining XFCE.  I'm obviously on Manjaro XFCE, which is pretty great.  So I should have access to the i3 plugins for XFCE.

Aloha.

PS: yup, probably better this way --

Yt4Xvg9l.png

Gotta bring the mouse to the tray to show it; set to intelligently hide, it's the only plugin in the panel.

Anybody know how to create a launcher on dockbar-x without having a window to pin?  MoodyRain is a yad dialog, not a real app -- a script, basically.
