I am on the live USB a.t.m.
- no more boot weirdness with timezone
- How to make the panel always visible? ??? Or at least autohide, or a key which makes it appear?
- epiphany doesn't start from panel menu nor from desktop menu, only from keyboard shortcut Super+Shift+b
- colours are friendlier, but I would prefer a look like TenShiN has  ^-^
- Is there a menu to set up the keyboard easily without reading the Arch Wiki?
- oh, yeah, one more thing: I needed to issue sudo modprobe b43, because my WiFi wasn't recognized as opposed to the previous ISO I tried. At least I got no menu with networks when I clicked this <> thing before modprobe.

I'll see about that browser launching. Msybe I lest midori there?

Panel should be always visible, unless you make some window fullscreen. Is it not spawned on boot? Keybinding to toggle it is super+shift+space.

There is no keyboard setting utility included. I could code one for bmenu? I could use parts from installers maybe. Manjaro-settings-manager has keyboard switcher. I just run
Code: [Select]
sudo loadkeys fi in console or
Code: [Select]
setxkbmap fi if I'm in x. Usually through dmenu.

That driver issue is weird. Also, that menu should work even if wifi is not recognized. Strange...

I'm a n00b in tiling WM, so I don't know why the panel is getting overlapped by the windows.
It is visible, its items are clickable. I will check once more if the network item is clickable before modprobe b43.
I tried toggle tiling and then the panel gets overlapped partly, there is a gap between the window and the display borders then.
Opening a second window doesn't make the panel visible.

Thanks for the tip with setxkbmap.

Okay. That means that top_padding is not set properly. As a quick fix you can rerun
Code: [Select]
~/.config/bspwm/bspwmrcBut this is definately a issue that needs to be addressed. I'll take a look.

I'm on live CD again an this time the panel is visible the way it should.
But I verified that the network item doesn't give anything on cklick before I run sudo modprobe b43. As I wrote this wasn't the case with the ISO I tested last time (the second previous).
setxkbmap de works.
One more result: the browser doesn't open from desktop menu but it opens from the panel menu.

My guess is that mhwd does not run at start because drivers are installed, and that is why right drover does not get loaded. I'll make sure its on the list of installed packages at least.

But I might drop those extra drivers from live iso. 50mb extra iso size+wireless issues is not good combo.

I don't have any insight in this matter. But I'm curious if you can find out what the difference to the second previous version is.

Uploading new testing isos now. Built with stable repos, without extra drivers on live-image, with browser menu item fixed. Also added some extra stuff to make sure top padding gets set properly.

Trying the new version.
The network panel item works now. No need for modprobe anymore. I understand now what you did: this broadcom-wl driver doesn't work for me, but is being installed by mhwd. If you dropped it, other users for whom it works might get the problem.
The desktop menu launches epiphany.
The overall lightness of bspwm makes me want to install it. Each time I boot I forget to measure RAM on start. Here is a sample with epiphany open on the forum site:
Code: [Select]
Info:      Processes: 134 Uptime: 13 min Memory: 283.3/1997.0MB Init: systemd v: 229 Gcc sys: N/A
           Client: Shell (zsh 5.2 running in roxterm) inxi: 2.2.35
And it look quite pretty indeed! The font (good size), the minimalistic icons.
A little thing, maybe "Show devices" on the left of SpaceFM should be on by default. That makes SpaceFM look more like other file managers. I don't like the icons in SpaceFM very much, it is Menda-Circle. Would prefer similar looking icons as in the menus.

For me it boots about 110mb (64bits). For installed system should be under 100mb (used to be 105mb, and I have trimmed down about 10mb worth stuff after that).

I don't think there should be issues for other users, as mhwd still installs what is needed. The tweak I tried was having everything already installed on live session. That makes boot faster, but if atuff is not installed, mhwd detects the hardware and installs what is necessary.

I'll take a look at spacefm settings. Menda-Circle was chosen solely because of its arrow icons: forward and backward buttons in browsers and filemanagers are visible both with light and dark themes. That is quite rare, many icon themes play badly with dark themes. Breeze/maia icons would have nicer looking icons and some other good stuff, but atleast breeze dark glitches with spacefm (random sized icons in right click menus).

If you have suggestions for a good icon theme, I am open for suggestions. Menda-Circle is not the prettiest, but thusfar it has been the least problematic one.

Again forgot to measure minimal RAM usage, above is with one browser tab.
For theming I will try to get TenShiN's look and masalla icons.

Okay, turns out I can get rid of those icon glitches by manually editing spacefm:



Atm this is my favourite. It is breeze dark. I tried suggested themes, but they just did not do it for me.

I'm having trouble with changing the backgroud colour of the ROXterm. When I change it with Preferences -> Edit current color scheme and restart it I get for a moment the new colour but then it changes to the old colour.
