Debian Jessie with xorg, jwm (windows manager), rox (desktop icons manager)

Different wallpapers and desktop icons on each desktop. 3 desktops in total is enough for my needs and I have the first as a general type desktop, the second as a workspace/browsing, and the third is for multi-media.

Have set the taskbar to show open programs from all desktops so that clicking on any one jumps you to the relevant desktop. You can also drag/drop windows to the screen edges to move a window to another desktop, or use the Pager next to the main menu button to move windows around.

I have brightside installed and I used brightside-properties to set a top left hot corner (mouse into corner) that toggles show/hide desktop, so when a window is full screen its just a case of mouse into that corner to reveal the desktop icons for that desktop.

Could have used SOAP to modify the desktop (which is a xml file in Rox), however I opted for an alternative approach and have a ~/.jwmrc (jwm configuration) file content that includes
Code: Select all
    <!-- Number of virtual desktops -->
    <Desktops width="3" height="1">
       <Desktop><Background type="command">rox -p /home/ff/.rox/Pin1</Background></Desktop>
       <Desktop><Background type="command">rox -p /home/ff/.rox/Pin2</Background></Desktop>
       <Desktop><Background type="command">rox -p /home/ff/.rox/Pin3</Background></Desktop>
    </Desktops>

(rox -p is the command/parameter to set a active Pin (desktop))

EDIT :

Created three .desktop files that basically run rox -p pin1 (2,3) i.e. one for each desktop and I'm including those as icons on each desktop (towards the right screen edge) as a means to switch between the different desktops.

jwm caters for group settings for instance
Code: Select all
<Group>
    <Class>Eterm</Class>
    <Option>nolist</Option>
    <Option>noborder</Option>
    <Option>notitle</Option>
    <Option>sticky</Option>
</Group>

so that a window can be borderless ...etc. and set to not appear in the tray/tasklist.

Handy for having a "always there" console/terminal as part of the normal desktop 'background' ... ready and waiting for cli commands to be typed into it.

Image

In that image I've started up Eterm in .jwmrc using
Code: Select all
<StartupCommand>Eterm --no-cursor -O --buttonbar 0 -g 80x34+170+120</StartupCommand>

Very nice None1975, I value a lot fluxbox+tint2 and console palette colors. Fluxbox & Openbox are the best stack WM that i ever used.

Apart from a brief spat with the above wallpaper, I've had this one for a while now.

I am very picky with wallpaper, and when I eventually find one I like - which can take a lot of time - I end up sticking with it for months. This one has been going since the Jessie days.
