StretchBang!

thank you "bronto" I had problems with X session lightdm with my bunsenlabs-distro and decided to try stretchbang online install, modify slim as login manager and things with menu, and using fehbrowser to change walls because nitrogen didn't set the default wallpaper at restart... but now with few changes everything works back fine wink

Re: StretchBang!

p.s. Perhaps I have fixed weird nitrogen (out of the box) behavior (using ./fixPaths that should/shall/will make paths in nitrogen.cfg and bg-saved.cfg absolute).

Re: StretchBang!

I've already run ./fixPaths, but I didn't see things with nitrogen in the script... I'm leaving few days I'll check that later, thanks again for your work wink The clock is not broken, I just like to display seconds smile For gnome-pie I've exlued shadow now it's better displayed (wbar dœsn't refresh when background is changing, with a slide-show wallpaper for example)

Re: StretchBang!

Yeah that's wbar, manual rmb click fixes it, AFAIK that is the intended upstream behaviour, nothing I can or should do about it.

Re: StretchBang!

We need a new thread I guess (or perhaps split this one?), but I imagine there are at least two issues here (probably worth debating);
a. Is there really anything better than wbar
b. Is a lot of choice really good (Most (all?) launchers seem to need some sort of compositor running, wbar does not)

Re: StretchBang!

I'd like to ask a question as well: I wonder why is it good to have a PIE if there is a dock already? Any practical advantages? I mean a PIE is a launcher - or is it more than that?

Re: StretchBang!

Pie menus are actually an interesting concept, especially context aware part of it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pie_menu , personally I could never dig it enough to get to actually use them.

Et tu, http://blenderaddonlist.blogspot.si/201 … -menu.html Blender?
