You posted this no April 1st, so I hope this is not an April fools joke. :-)

This looks really great, if you ask me. Do you have any more details or a link to the source code?


The WM is EMWM. It's a fork of MWM I found with EWMH enhancements. The same guy also made an image viewer and the Toolbox/session manager I'm using, plus a NEdit fork with better font support. https://github.com/alx210/emwm

I used these and made a bunch of my own icons, color schemes, configs and a few custom apps and I'm turning them into a desktop environment for Linux (and probably BSDs in the future).

I'm hoping to have the 1.0 source release ready soon but I have to finish some essentials like the build scripts and color scheme changer. Speaking of, here's a preview of the Spruce scheme... https://i.ibb.co/XSjBZYY/snap-17-29-07-04-03-22.png

This is absolutely stunning. Much better than MAXX in my opinion. Very consistent. Congrats :-)
Looking forward to giving it a shot

In the meantime, I present my last experiment. A mostly pkgsrc based Solaris 11.4 CBE desktop (fvwm3), inspired by the CDE look of Solaris 8 to 10, and running as a QEMU/NVMM guest on NetBSD/amd64.

Looks great!
The only thing that doesn't quite fit the theme is that CSD on the file manager.

I'm using FreeBSD on my main computer, with Hikari as my WM, although I also use sway from time to time.

That's really nice! Are you using polybar?

Nothing changed.
Except the dockbar, which has a new menu dockapp.
EDIT: Now with a xteddy smug beastie!

I've got tired of Wayland, WMhopped a lot when I returned to X11, and I'm now stuck on AwesomeWM

I had even considered 2bwm at some point, but.....

What killed my interest in Wayland (for now) was how broken taking screenshots was.

I get the feeling a lot of modern devs are not eating their own dog food (testing and using with their own code).

Agreed.

Same, grimshot really sucks, to the point I've written my own script but turns out it's also broken due to half of it hard-depending on sway.

crshd hasn't been online in many years sadly. His ricing skills are, to this day, the best I've ever seen. The dude practically held my had though my very first Arch installation back in 2009. This screenshot from him is giving me nostalgia... I might need to bite this style for my next rice.

How do you change the teddy to beastie? did you need to patch xteddy or is there a command line option I don't know about?
