Re: screenfetch issue with xsettings

The error arises because our desktop is defined as "XFCE" but the xsettings xfconf channel is not set.

Try:

xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/ThemeName -n -t string -s Bunsen
xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/IconThemeName -n -t string -s Vertex-Icons
xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Gtk/FontName -n -t string -s Cantarell

Replace "Bunsen", "Vertex-Icons" & "Cantarell" with whatever you are actually using.

I'm sure @twoion will fix the script when he has a moment wink

EDIT: You can also install xfce4-settings and use

xfce4-settings-editor

to change the values.

EDIT2: it is possible to start `xfsettingsd` and have the settings applied to all channels but then the XFCE settings manager has to be used to change the fonts, icon themes, GTK themes, etc

At that point, we might as well be running XFCE with a less capable WM -- it's not really worth the extra overhead, IMO.

Re: screenfetch issue with xsettings

I have taken the liberty of adding @twoion's modifications to the script supplied by the vanilla Debian screenfetch package:
https://github.com/Head-on-a-Stick/conf … creenfetch

It seems to work without messing around with xsettings.

You can simply copy&paste the script to ~/bin/screenfetch and use `chmod +x ~/bin/screenfetch` to make it executable; the `screenfetch` command should then run the modified version.

EDIT: Or use:

git clone http://github.com/Head-on-a-Stick/configs.git

and copy the script from that folder.

There's a lot of cr*p in my configs though big_smile
