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?

Image

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 think your setup needs some better colors from any of these #source1, source#2, sources#3

Thanks for share it. I will look at this.

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.

Clean Crunchy with Debian 9 Stretch and auto-updating menu. Tint2 is there, but auto-hidden.

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.).
