stasis by bohoomil stasis by bohoomil
dwm + Arch Linux, shaped little by little without haste so that my machine is speaking my language and following my muscles. What an experience, really! ;)

Nice setup! The colors are so retro but it's hurting my eyes!
Is mc hard to use? I heard that it doesn't autodetect mounted drives?...
pcmanfm just sticks out like a sore thumb with a theme like that. :(

This looks great. All these colors, but yet so simple.
I would like to recreate this, if you don't mind. Could you share your .Xdefaults with me? Or whatever else you are using (.vimrc?).

You are most welcome: you'll find most important configs in my github folder (see the footer). The colours I'm using now are more vivid -- well, that's a must for me as my eyes are less tired this way, and I'm spending way too much time watching the screen. ;) You may try to revert them to the state from the screenshot with a little app like xdcp -- just try to manipulate with saturation and brightness of each colour. However, in the long run you may prefer something more recognizable as well. Anyway, I can provide you with the complete dwm setup if you wish, so your only job would be replacing the lines referring to my preferred apps with yours. (I even don't try to separate each bit into its own *.diff file: the entire thing has become too extensively customized.) The wallpaper comes from here: [link] and the fonts are Terminus for dwm and Envy Code R for all .Xdefaults staff. Oh, and the modified Gtk2 theme is weakhead's Litestyle-Mint_Dark, though at the moment I'm experimenting with Wasp-Hard-Drakfire-Mod-Green, slightly modified as well. The icons are Faenza F-Dark (hardly any app I'm using needs them, but I needed good looking menu icons for a dark theme). Should you need any assistance -- let me know. :)

Thank you very much for your help.
I cloned you on github, replaced the .Xdefaults, installed the fonts and adjusted the vim files. I will later add the other programs when I actually start using them :D How do you get the column colors with "ls -lh"? I thought that this has something to do with the dircolors file, but no.


I'm pretty new to arch, dwm and vim. So i will need some time to get it all right. Tomorrow I will try to add functionality to dwm. Wish me luck and forgive my bad English :)

dircolors are needed to force colourising certain file types. To make it work under all circumstances, it's wise to add something like this:


if [ "$TERM" != "dumb" ]; then
[ -e "$HOME/.dircolors" ] && DIRCOLORS="$HOME/.dircolors"
[ -e "$DIRCOLORS" ] || DIRCOLORS=""
eval "`dircolors -b $DIRCOLORS`"
fi


to your shell config file (probably .bashrc in your case). This way when you issue ls, you should have all the file types mentioned in .dircolors presented in nice (?) colours. Some hate it, but I don't. ;)

The other thing is a Perl wrapper for shell commands called cope (in Aur you can find it here: [link] though personally I cloned the git repo [link] and sometimes play with it; the project is somehow dead, but still works pretty well). I believe that in your case installing it from Aur is the quickest and safest way to get it working. Then you should add a line like this


export PATH=/usr/share/perl5/vendor_perl/auto/share/dist/Cope:$PATH


at the end of your .bashrc (check if the scripts are really sitting there), re-login for the changes to take effect, and next time you run some useful command (like ls -lhA) you'll enjoy a very different view. :) I believe it shouldn't be very challenging to achieve the desired effect: most steps are straightforward and don't require magic to make the whole thing work. In case they do -- let me know. :)

Good luck! :thumbsup:

P.S.: Vim is a lovely editor, but in order to make it work for you it's worth reading some easy how-tos and have a cheat-sheet or even two with basic shortcuts explained. Sooner or later it becomes your second nature to use hjkl instead of arrows and a couple of other things. In case it's too painful at the beginning, use gVim: icons and pull down menus will give you a hand. :)

Were I a turtle, I'd be the first turtle in history jumping 5 meters high. :D OK, I'll tell you something: there are two Gtk themes I'm using on a regular basis: one's weakhead's from his Litestyle family, and the other is yours, devArp. Both were only slightly modified to meet my default dark spectrum, but besides that they are kept in vanilla state. This way my .theme directory is almost empty and although I've tried replacing them many times, I always ended up with the same 'defaults'. So, you're being used and even don't know about it. ;)
