No - Desktop !!


Applications
Description:

A middle point amongst the non informed people who depends on a desktop and the people who actually know what a desktop is, so they don't want to use such ugly cluttered thing ;)

Well, more seriously, if you want more acceleration (FPS) from your video card (Yeah!! Go check it out!), CPU power, drive speed, available RAM for "real" tasks, near real time computer usage and a clean environment you probably use a non-WIMP-computing-setup.

So if you don't depend on Gnome, KDE, or XFCE desktops surely you want to join us. Users of Xmonad, Ion2, Ion3, aewm++, larswm, evilwm, ratpoison, wmii, wm2, awesomewm, dwm, (pekwm, *box), fvwm and twm are very welcome !!. And, of course, Enlightenment (16-17) the fanciest light WMs we -all- love.

Here we can discuss issues with some apps and little tips to make more comfortable the already comfortable life without a desktop [...]

For more info (aka. RTFM) you are invited to read:

http://www.sigchi.org/chi95/proceedings/panels/gen_bdy.htm?searchterm=anti+mac

The ION Manifesto:

What is WIMP?

Ratpoison devs approach:

NOTE: This is not a "desktop haters" group, we just love handling our computers with freedom and usability in mind. Aesthetics and usability are two tight concepts since unmemorable times.

EDIT (a): Found this cute article with some tips in scripts and usability. Liked it because of the approach "For many users, the standard, full-blown desktop environments have either too many features, which slow the PC down, or too few to fulfill their specific needs."

 Killed E17

I am using E16 and ion3. Faster and of course with cronos as time nicer. I don't know why, but after spend much time to compile a new version of E17 again and again i disagree to use it before it is stable.
Nice new features in E16, someone need to have a look at it.

Well done ;)

Well, more seriously, I am totally towards e17 graphical libs if they get stable some day. Though I don't think I'll use the WM or the desktop. I just think e17 libs would beat some day GTK2 and Qt in terms of lightness and aesthetics.

Just a little biased personal thought.

By the way, what ion3 plugins are you using? Just curious. I do not maintain my plugins since a lot of time ago as I wont use ion anymore...

I can realize exactly what you meant when you talked about your poor eyes [...]

And I don't really changed too much internal affairs in ion. I think all's gone except for some modules: maildirs, file modification, a binary clock, etc. those for mod_statusbar.

 obconf and segmentation fault

Hey guys, maybe you can help me to fix the following problem. I cannot run obconf after i have upgraded to intrepid. I think I have already tried everything: all versions of openbox and obconf in different combinations - but still obconf ends up with segmentation fault. I don't have any hope already to fix it. Please help!
Thank you very much in advance!

Sometimes this software segfaults are due to the lack of default configurations or upgrading without removing the older ones. Are you sure this isn't your case?

Try also installing by hand... after checking out what the web pages of this packages have to tell you about this particular problem.

Anyway, you got a wise advice: That's an Ubuntu problem and it should be better asked and answered at Ubuntu forums so that another users could benefit from your personal "trip into madness"...

Good luck.

Thank you very much code933k! You post was really helpful! i checked and deleted all the files from previous installations of openbox and obconf and also i have removed all the themes of openbox. After that the problem disappear.
