Picture speaks for itself. Somewhat less obvious however is the menu button ... which is for JWM

Plan is to stay with oldstable (currently Jessie, until Stretch enters oldstable perhaps in a couple of years time). Everything just works (if it ain't broke...).

Fancy a animated wallpaper?

I use jwm for windows (and panel/tray) management and pcmanfm --desktop for desktop icons. Turn off pcmanfm --desktop ... and you're left with no icons, just the tray. You can then use that desktop space to play animated gifs .. or whatever. I've set up a looping mplayer playlist
Code: Select all
#!/bin/bash

cd /home/user/Desktop/Docs/scripts
echo lady-gaga-poker-face.mp4 >playlist
echo lady-gaga-judas1.mp4 >>playlist
echo lady-gaga-bad-romance.mp4 >>playlist
echo gossip-heavy-cross.webm >>playlist
mplayer -vf scale -zoom -xy 1280 -loop 0 -rootwin -playlist playlist

(loop 0 is loop forever, using the root window as the output and I've scaled to my 1280x720 (720p) TV monitor that I use).

Turn the desktop back on again (in my case pcmanfm --desktop) ... and all of your icons reappear again. Toggle as desired.

For the animated wallpaper you could use online content (this is a low quality example)
Code: Select all
mplayer -vf scale -zoom -xy 1280 -loop 0 -rootwin mms://media4.abc.net.au/broadbandkids/20070521_1500/story1hi.wmv


Pulseaudio along with pavucontrol is nice, as pavucontrol shows all outputs on a single tab and you can dial up/down the volume of individual sources as desired (perhaps turn down the 'wallpaper' volume to turn up the radio or a youtube ... etc.).

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.
