May 2020 Screenshots Thread

Welcome to the May Scrot thread! This is where you can post screenshots of your setup, as long as it's in line with our somewhat elaborate rules and instructions... (<-- That was me doing Comedy! I know, it's a very dry, Monty Python-esque comedy, heavily leaning towards Graham Chapman. So, not generally funny. Still, one presses on!)

Please use thumbnails. Do not embed images larger than approx 250x250px (62,500px) into posts, use thumbnails linking to a hosted image instead. Thanks!

Various online free image hosts are available, such as Imgur, imgbb, freeimage.host, scrot.cloud etc.

Use the following BB code for posting please:

[url=<url of full size image>][img]<url of thumbnail>[/img][/url]

** Update for Imgur users **

Imgur only provides the link to the full image, but just add "t" to the name to get a thumbnail link, and the filename extension eg:

[url=https://i.imgur.com/7S2EJEg.png][img]https://i.imgur.com/7S2EJEgt.png[/img][/url]
                                  ^                                  ^

Imgur also provides a variety of thumbnail sizes, and the linked BBCode, in the image "View and edit" screen.

imgur wrote:

Sizes:  Original · Small Square · Big Square · Small Thumbnail · Medium Thumbnail · Large Thumbnail · Huge Thumbnail

Repeat: To get the linked direct image you need make sure to add the file extension to the url.  Their recommended BB code doesn't really convey this properly.

Once again when choosing a thumbnail size please keep in mind our approx 250x250px (62,500px) thumbnail file size constraints.

And to start, here's the amazing, poignant wallpaper that I've downloaded to tie the room together...

Yes, epic. Set it tiled.

^systemd?
Oops, i thought you said (title this) too late to correct now.
I tiled that with feh, but still looks systemd (even more fat).
Sorry for the host.

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

^ Oh I am a fan alright.
MPFC never gets old.
Just the other day some forum newbie over at LQ did a perfect rendition of the architect's sketch:

  • rant and rave like a madman about how Linux is broken and how all stupid FOSS fanatics should get off their high horses, and on a plane to help said newbie, right now!!!

  • realising they made an error, they made a full U-turn, saying sorry many times and "hoping they will be welcomed to this great community"

Well, I'm paraphrasing from memory. It was fun.

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

spectrwm!

The little used and mostly unheard of spectrwm aka scrotwm. Recently given an airing by Distro-tube. I'm liking it so far - it's not as well-documented as i3, but it's not as arcane config-wise as bspwm. It's just right, a bit like Goldilocks. Its defaults are sane.

Colour scheme by pywal, thing in lower left is the SDF bulletin board.

Edit: fixed the link, click away!

As always great work with color combinations Naik.

@MW2K please fix your scrot, it show very small on clicking. I'd like to check spectrwm scrot as a former fellow. Ty.

Indeed, spectrwm is a very underrated window manager -

Agreed, that tiny thumbnail is a cruel joke. It's mocking us, and I hate it for that.

Fixed.

While I like spectrwm, I've encountered one insurmountable problem, and that's with Conky. It cannot show a backgrounded Conky where it's detached from the WM. Conky vanilla runs, but in a window where it's subject to window rules. If I try backgrounding it, it generates an X error.

This is what I mean in i3:

scrot

That Conky window is detached from the WM meaning anything and everything can cover it and it just sits there happily. I can't achieve this in spectrwm - there's something about the Conky script I use it does not like.

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

@MW2K Thanks for fixing the link.

I used spectrwm with conky-cli, this conky packages pipe the info to spectrwm panel. Generally this type of conky is recommended for spectrwm.

I have opened a thread regarding spectrwm+conky-cli. Look once there if you may find something that can help you.

I'm not sure the standart conky towards spectrwm now, but open a thread @ Scripts, Tutorials & Tips. Show the conky output by running from terminal.

Nice scrots, both i3 + spectrwm. Very handsome background you've found.

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

there's something about the Conky script I use it does not like.

spectrwm is not fully ewmh compliant so conky can't be run with "own_window = no," to place it on the root window (desktop) and "own_window_hints = 'undecorated,below,sticky,skip_taskbar,skip_pager'" doesn't work to keep conky below other windows and sticky across desktops.

Have you tried

own_window_type = 'override'

???

Re: May 2020 Screenshots Thread

It is set to override - I got it to appear in spectrwm, but it won't background. It stays on top of any window. I've tinkered with the quirks section of spectrwm.conf but haven't got it how I won't. It's no biggie though - as another posted said, it doesn't fully suport extended hinting.
