  @eugen-b

Thanks for that article link on EXT4 to Btrfs < > much easier to just say Butter than these acronyms.

Sure hope Btrfs & OpenRC support reaches more Linux mainstream distributions this year >> at least in GUI installers.

I experiment distro hopping a lot but Manjaro "Rocks" my World.

Oberon, thanks for the reply. You are right, the default styles in /usr/share/fluxbox/styles are pretty ugh. Your manjaro-flux is by far the best of the bunch. I may just have to start learning how to create Fluxbox styles myself! So thanks for that link. ;)

Hey guys I have been reading up on Plank https://answers.launchpad.net/plank
Some odd bugs appear, especially so called 'dead zones', where windows and Plank clash ie. transparency etc.
There seems to be no solution for it, and they are pretty certain that it is a Fluxbox issue.
Maybe use Docky instead?

             Hello simgin
       I'm baffled why no one uses Cairo-Dock nor recommends it.

I've used Cairo-Dock myself and find it has outstanding features compared to any other Dock.

Laptop with radeon mobility x700.  i686 only.

systemd spin fills screen in red color after first reboot, right after install
openrc starts ok. But fails to add  Canon MP280 device. App can't find proper driver. Fixed after installing gutenprint.

Question: How to make autologin after suspend command with no password entering? What is that weird app started upon waking up?

Hi, dr-kart!
About the red sceeen thing, I have no idea - never heard of anything like that ??? Is the checksum of the ISO ok?

"weird app" ... Do you mean the blurred screen with the coloured circle? That's i3lock with blurlock.
Some things can be changed, others can't I'm afraid.
The latest version of oblogout locks the session automatically before suspend, so you'd have to use a shortcut for suspend only.
Code: [Select]
fluxboxexit suspendshould work for a command.
If you would like to use i3lock just with a blank screen and the circle (without the blurred screen image) you will have to invoke
Code: [Select]
oblogoutinstead of
Code: [Select]
oblogout_blurwhich the .desktop file in /usr/share/applications/oblogout.desktop does now for you if you use the dock entry.
To change that you can either create a keyboard shortcut, or edit the menu, or edit the .desktop file... ;)

Hi, oberon
Thanks for reply.
Now I can see that I'm facing with manjaro-oblogout, but not the original oblogout.
And as I said, I neither need nor like its (manjaro's) dependency of i3lock app.  Since I have to enter password each time my system awakens after suspend.  IMHO.
Secondly, plank's icons configuration drives me wild (c).

It's not broken. There is just a better solution that we have discovered since.
If you are not satisfied with the way plank and fluxbox interact and if you want to use docky before the next release:
Remove plank, install docky and configure it yourself!

As I was trying to say: It's oblogout that locks the session before suspend. i3lock is just my choice of a lock-command.
You can simply replace oblogout-manjaro with oblogout. Just make sure you remove /etc/oblogout.conf first!

oh, yeah... got it. Actually that is what I have done right after I discovered oblogout-manjaro app. But (legacy) oblogout was not functioning that time. Maybe due to not having /etc/oblogout.conf removed first. So probably I'll try another time. Now I feel confused about old (since openbox 0.13) not yet solved memory loop issue, and xarchiver rar issue

If you want to use oblogout from the dock you will have to create a new .desktop file like /usr/share/applications/oblogout_blur.desktop but without the trailing "_blur". You can use the existing one but you'll have rename it and edit it with a texteditor and remove all the "_blur"s there ;)
The menu is (for whatever reason ::) set to call oblogout already instead of oblogout_blur. So that should work right away.

Please respect Oberons work, don't like it, don't use it!
It is not like you have paid for it, but he has by using his spare time.

@simgin: Well, I don't see any disrespect from dr-kart, IMHO.
@dr-kart, adding IMHO doesn't make much sense, you are writing that you don't need s.th., you are not writing that Oberon should remove it.
@manjone, I think you should have better described your issue instead of asking a rhetorical question.
Sorry, for interfering. At least we are all obviously interested enough in Oberon's Fluxbox release to write s.th. here.
