Very nice! I chose bespin color theme.
Edit: I decided to use harmonic16 which is more colourful.
I'm having problems with some background colours on my machine, I get flickering around the mouse cursor with greyish backgrounds which are neither light nor dark. But some colours don't bring this problem.
Some further testing: LibreOffice runs ok on bspwm, zathura is quite cool, because it remembers the page of the file when closing.

Uploading the next iso now. Hopefully this is the final one. If it is good then I'm going to release it.
Some tweaks compared with previous:
- different wallpaper for installed system (no need to notify about installers)
- breeze-dark icons (breeze for gtk2)
- heavily tweaked spacefm dotfiles, to make it play nice with breeze dark. Also some other tweaks (F3 for root window. requires gksu).

I think it ended up looking pretty slick.

Caution:
if installing with thus/calamares, default shell for the installed system user will be bash instead of zsh. Nothing I can do about it. However, it is easy to switch through postinstall script or bmenu.

Sounds nice!

Some more feedback/questions from me:
- I'm missing an applications menu :-[
- I will try lxpanel-gtk3, do you know whether I can put it like xfce4-panel ~/.config/bspwm/autostart -> run_once lxpanel -d

It worked, but such a panel doesn't make much sense anyway in bspwm. :-\ It gets autostarted only with
lxpanel --profile left (this is my profile for the vertical position on the left), with run_once or -d it won't start.
It also has a strange feature that once it has been killed with Super+X it won't start anymore during the running session.
I would prefer to have the limepanel improved. I took a look at ~/.config/bspwm/panel and saw there two conkyrc files (one of them just a code template). I opened and saw that the symbols on the panel (network, etc.) seem to originate from this file. But strangely some more "panel applets" seem to be configured (CPU, RAM, sensors) but they are not displayed! :o I would love to have them displayed! But how? Do I need to run conky -c ~/.config/bspwm/panel/conkyrc ? ???

I'm downloading the new ISO to see the changes. ;)

I booted with the latest ISO.
- Breeze-Dark icons look better on dark background. But Edit as Root action has to large an icon!
- I would enable in SpaceFM View -> Style -> Icons, this would look more like default PCmanFM or Thunar.
- ~/.config/epiphany/adblock is empty. I would put a list there. I attach my Easylist from Budgie.
- epiphany has a "hidden" private mode, you can start it with epiphany --private-instance, it looks better than epiphany --incognito-mode, but I don't get the actual difference

I could enable the icons view yes. I had forgotten that the bug I avoided it for had been fixed. I'll fox edit as root, I missed it while pruning menus.

I'll also add the adblock list. Thanks!

I also noticed that top gap is not always set properly. I'll try to fix that too if I can.

Limepanel used conky in previous release, but I dropped it in favor of pure bash version. Conky can still be enabled easily by editing /usr/bin/limepanel (though it is better to copy it as .bin/mylimepanel and edit that, so it won't get overwritten by updates

If you want applications menu, the best options imho are
1) xfce4-panel or xfdesktop. They give you dynamic applications menu with icons, but use some 20-40mb extra ram.
2) morc_menu. https://github.com/Boruch-Baum/morc_menu I'm planning on putting into the mainmenu and mousemenu a submenu 'Applications'. This will launch morc_menu. It is the lightest alternative for this type of menu that I know of, written in bash and using dmenu. It won't give you icons though.

What kind of improvements to limepanel you have in mind besides adding appmenu?

Chrysostomus, I haven't tried the latest iso yet but the one before is smooth as silk on my netbook. The only issue that I have found is that the volume level on my workstation shows a question mark instead of a level. The sound still adjusts normally though. I love this spin thanks for your work on this.

Okay... that is a bug in volume_status.sh. can you tell me more about the issue?

Chrysostomus, neither of those commands echo anythying back.

However, "amixer get Master" returns:

Simple mixer control 'Master',0
  Capabilities: pvolume
  Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
  Limits: Playback 0 - 31
  Mono:
  Front Left: Playback 18 [58%]
  Front Right: Playback 18 [58%]

Edit to add the first spin showed the volume level correctly.

Okay. That means amixer does not report muted status on your system. For me, corresponding aoutput is as follows:
Code: [Select]
Simple mixer control 'Master',0
  Capabilities: pvolume pswitch pswitch-joined
  Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
  Limits: Playback 0 - 65536
  Mono:
  Front Left: Playback 42576 [65%] [on]
  Front Right: Playback 42576 [65%] [on]


Its that [on] after the percentage that is missing on your system. Cannot really be fixed with alsa. But if volume indicator worked for you in the previous spin, that means that pulseaudio works for you. You can just
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -Syu manjaro-pulse pavucontrol pulseaudio-ctlAnd uncomment one line in autostart file (marked clearly, in the beginning). That makes your system use pulseaudio and gives you working volume indicator.
