Yeah but the UI is beautifully minimal and it's quicker on my hardware than dwm 'cos it uses the GPU to move stuff around the desktop :)

Nothing clever. Just XFCE.

Minimal Fvwm configuration for Debian Buster system. With only 866 pkg you can have a fully working system without bloating stuff. FVWM config is shamelessly stolen from Donald Ervin Knuth and adapted for modern FVWM. It have 4 virtual desktops, buttons to switch virtual desktops with icons (in folder "icons"), asclock, for clock and xload (as system load viewer). This is nicely integated with FVWMButtons module.

Finally got SPICE working from the command line (no virt-manager or gnome-boxes to hold my hand):

Image

The clipboard is automatically shared between guest & host and the guest desktop automatically resizes to fit the window.

Reference: https://www.linux-kvm.org/page/SPICE

I use this function in my shell initialisation file:

Code: Select all

function spicec {
   qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 4G -cpu host -smp cores=4 -soundhw hda -vga qxl -drive file="$1",format=raw,cache=none,if=virtio -spice port=5900,addr=127.0.0.1,disable-ticketing -device virtio-serial-pci -device virtserialport,chardev=spicechannel0,name=com.redhat.spice.0 -chardev spicevmc,id=spicechannel0,name=vdagent &
   spicy -p 5900
   pgrep qemu-system >/dev/null 2>&1 && pkill qemu-system || :
}
Called with

Code: Select all

spicec /path/to/disk.img

Gnome-boxes doesn't hold your hand either, at least not in Stretch. The guest machine needs spice-vdagent which is dependent on systemd0 (elogind0 doesn't work).

Thanks for your code. I might be able to use it.

Very nice None1975, FVWM used to hang a lot on that WM years ago.
Almost the most customized (stacks) window manager, It comes raw and dirty at first, but once ones put the heart and soul on it can make it flying :)

Thanks! :) On the far right, closest to the camera, you can barely spot a white house and red barn. I grew up on that farm.

Norway is now on my destination list.

It looks like a beautiful place to live. I would love to wake up every morning and look at those mountains. How many people live in the town? is there room for one more?

The nature is fantastic. It is truly a great place to hike or climb summits. This is from a trip in the same area a few years ago.

If you visit Norway, the most beautiful places are on the western coast. All these places are quite near where I grew up.

Geiranger: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=geiranger&t=f ... efault.jpg
Trollstigen: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... _Above.jpg
Trollveggen: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troll_Wal ... 3_June.jpg
Atlanterhavsvegen: https://wallup.net/wp-content/uploads/2 ... sveien.jpg
Ålesund: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... .07.21.jpg

There are about 7.700 people living there, mostly living from agriculture and industry (for instance producing Stressless recliners), but Ålesund is a mere 30 km away with about 50.000 people.

This must be your lucky day. I moved to the south, so that means there is room for one more. :lol: Welcome!

Indeed. I didn't know that land could look like that. Let alone that mountains and water could come together in such spectacular formations.

Thank you for sharing these photos. They've made me want to learn more about Norway.

Here in New York City, everything is Stressful. I think we could learn a lot from you.

Norwegian Air has a flight from JFK to Oslo that leaves at 11pm tonight. I'm packing my bags. See you soon! . :D
