Looks nice, I am logged in with OpenBsd 6.0 right now, myself,
but don't have any screen shots, maybe tomorrow,....I'm tired.
Code: Select all
 $ uname -a
OpenBSD openbsd-garry.my.domain 6.0 GENERIC#1917 i386
 

=============edited==============
Here it is:

Edited again:
Wow, I am really liking this newer version of OpenBsd, been using it
now all day, and it is really nice,.... :D
Here is one more, have everything I use working now,
so it is kind of "busy"

^ Nice work Garry :)

I have managed to compile my custom dwm desktop properly (ie, from the ports tree rather than the lazy git method) after following this advice.

(Very) Clean:

Dirty:

I am using `xsetroot` & `date` to set the status box on the right-hand-side of the panel, here is my ~/.xinitrc (plus comments):
Code: Select all
synclient vertedgescroll=1 verttwofingerscroll=0 horizedgescroll=1 horizscrolldelta=10 # configure touchpad
xset s 300 -dpms # screensaver
xsetroot -solid "#002b36" # "wallpaper"
while true; do xsetroot -name "$(date +"%A %B %d, %T")"; sleep 1; done & # status box
exec dwm

I don't use xdm(1) but instead have this line in ~/.profile to launch the desktop automatically after a console login:
Code: Select all
[[ -z $DISPLAY ]] && exec startx

I need to look into trying that,

I use this @user .profile --> skiping startX MOTD
Code: Select all
if [[ -z $DISPLAY ]] && [[ $(tty) = /dev/tty1 ]]; then
sleep 1s && exec startx >/dev/null 2>&1
fi

On Debian, I think may work on BSD aswell.

Edit: startX on tty1

Yes, with a small modification it does -- thanks Nili :)

Here's my OpenBSD version:
Code: Select all
[[ -z $DISPLAY && $(tty) = /dev/ttyC0 ]] && exec startx

I only had room for one line :P

Actually thank you HoaS, first time a year ago I've used your code with a lil modified -- skiping MOTD.

So thanks you too ;)

^ Yeah, I was wondering about that too.

To drag this back on topic...

OpenBSD have managed to update their Dungeon Crawl port to the latest 0.18 version, it had been stuck on 0.15 for a while:

I love this game :)

Nothing important, actually i do not remember why I set time on startx startup.
Perhaps I wanted to read more about startx Motd before turning OFF or i could have set anything else with time. Really i don't remember.

Thanks for the notice. I'll make a change here.

EDITED:
Recalled why i set the time 1 on startx :) I remember wanted to make a code similar to HoaS
Code: Select all
[[ -z $DISPLAY && $(tty) = /dev/tty1 ]] && exec startx >/dev/null 2>&1

...But doesn't worked for me then...
At this point begin a infinity loop "exit / join" all time very fast for my WM which doesn't give me a change to stop it with "CTRL+C halt".
So, with +1sec time i have a chance to use CTRL+C stoping the loop and fix the profile code.

OK, you will have to bear with me here 'cos I haven't figured out the networking and the suggested screenshot technique doesn't seem to work for me but here is a shot of my laptop screen running the 9front operating system:

Image

The stats system monitor is in the top left with the mothra web browser running to the right and an acme & terminal window open below.

It is using the rio window system which directly manipulates the pixel display without the need for an X server or any of that nonsense.
