Love your wallpaper of Half Dome, Yosemite National Park (California) (searched using Tiny Eye reverse image search) :)

systemd-analyze plot >s.svg and then viewing the (large) svg file shows that wicd (network) is the bottleneck for me. Without that would be a second or two faster. My setup gets to the login prompt and networking messages are still showing as I've entered the userid and password, so perhaps the timing might be several seconds less if I swapped wicd out ... but I like it personally.

I have seen others with newer kit down at 5 seconds :mrgreen:


Thanks for the confirmation of location! I had no idea where it was but suspected it was somewhere in the US. What a beautiful location.

Are we counting from switching on the computer or from when GRUB loads the OS? If it's the latter I'm sure for me it's about 7-8 seconds or so till the login screen.

EDIT: Just timed it, 7 seconds.

systemd-analyze time I guess. If you count from when turning the PC on ... well mine takes ages to run through BIOS and then waits a while for me to maybe press DEL or a Fn key ... before finally getting to the grub menu :( That alone is around a 30 second wait on mine. Then more usually another 30 seconds to get to the Debian login prompt.

That is all very nice, but let's keep in mind the topic is :

What does your desktop look like?
Not "How fast can your computer boot"
Forum guidelines. Please read before first post!
7.Stay on topic. Sometimes threads morph into something completely off topic, this is unavoidable when a bunch of people communicate. However, try to limit the off topic discussions to the off topic category. Long off topic discussions in other categories might get moved or locked.
Discussions in "Off topic" should still be in the spirit of this board, that is related to Linux/ Computers/ Software etc. Political, religious or racial discussions do not belong on this board.
Avoid 'thread hijacking'. Unless your question is directly related to the thread's topic, start a new one.

The shot of Half Dome may have come from this webcam: http://www.sierracamnetwork.com/viewcam ... te-valley/ or have been taken from the same location. It generates a lot of beautiful wallpaper candidates.

Indeed, thanks for the link. Very interesting to see the same location in different state during the day.

And here's a photo in situ

Debian standard (command line) ... added xorg, openbox, compton (shadow effects), stalonetray (tray) ... and if you edit the openbox menu to have blank label values, leaving just icons ... then the effect is quite nice IMO

Image

If in obconf you set a 1 pixel left screen edge margin, then even if a window is 'full screen' you can still mouse over to the left screen edge and click to access the menu

Image

Openbox Pipe menus options are a nice feature, this one just has a menu item that pulls in the date and time

Image

Add in Brightside for hot corners and set a corner to start skippy-xd ... and you can have a tiled view of all open windows simply by mousing into a corner

Image

From there you can either click to focus, middle or right mouse click to minimise or close the window(s).

All with no KDE, Gnome, LXDE, Xfce ... etc, installed (nice and lightweight ... quick too). That said some elements are worthy of being installed ... pcmanfm file browser, lxinput (keyboard/mouse settings), lxapperance (theme etc.) are good additions IMO.

I've set the key bindings so that left click on the desktop launches the openbox menu and right click starts up the desktop-switch/open-programs menu ... as I'm not fond of the default clicking the middle (scrollwheel in my case) 'button'.

Choosing wallpaper is not an easy task! I have probably spent quite a few hours on it overall today. Maybe part of the problem is too much choice?

Anyway, this is what I have settled on for now. A while back I remember having abstract wallpapers, and this hit me this evening.

I am changing my wallpaper a lot at the moment. Normally it is once every few weeks/months, at the moment it is once every few days.
