What does your desktop look like?

If it doesn't relate to Debian, but you still want to share it, please do it here

What is complex about it? Unless you're just joking! :)

All you have to do for a lightweight system, as I did, do a clean minimal debian netinstall without desktop and standard task selection checked (in a 2 GB root partition in my case) and do some fine tuning stuffs as explained in these HOWTOs, here and here.

You should have a system with less than 300MB maybe even less if you know what not to install after doing apt-get update and apt-get install xorg and a couple of applications like web-browsers, words etc.

Then do apt-get install evilwm gmrun xbindkeys. If you want a GUI for xbindkeys, apt-get install xbindkeys-config (though I prefer to edit via terminal) or a keybind of your choice.

when you type log into evilwm you'll only get grey background, no menus, no window decorations etc. Spartan stuffs. To launch terminal, type Ctrl-Alt-<Enter>, xterm is the default, read the evilwm homepage or the gentoo wiki link I posted above for keyboard usage for window actions, workspace action, etc.

To launch applications use gmrun, bind it to a key like F1 via xbindkeys. To have background, xbindkeys, mouse configuration, numlock etc, just edit your ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession file. It's explained clearly in the evilwm or gentoo page.:)

For background, I use feh as a wrapper. Just apt-get install feh. Put this in your ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession:
Code: Select all
feh --bg-scale /home/user/image-files/yourimage.jpg
.

Read the man page for feh for other options to pass. Feh is a nice image manipulation tool with slideshow capability, thumbnail, montage, full-screen etc.

It looks complex by having no panel or windows.. I'm just too used to KDE and XFCE.. Ofcourse I can do stuff in Fluxbox too :)

Ah well, if you can do stuffs in Fluxbox then there is no reason for you to try evilwm! :) I just bind my applications to key using xbindkeys or use gmrun to launch applications - that's all!

[quote="thamarok"][/quote]

Might be breaking the OT rule...but cannot help it. Thamarok, I just dug out an old PC100 SDRAM (DIMMs) card, it didn't have any marking so I had no idea as to what its size. Anyway, I put this in along with a new correct card for 128MB module, when I boot up and hit the BIOS setup there was a message that warned me something along the line of memory failure (non detection?) and it downgraded the memory size to 289MB. I guessed that the card must be for 256MB.

Now the specification for the PII PC that I have is for a max mem expansion of 256MB RAM. with 289MB, eveything seems to be working but I'm wondering if it's wise to continue using this kind of setup?
