Soooo… While I am aware this blog is dedicated to linux, my netbook won’t let me access it no matter what. I just can’t reach grub, so I have linux installed but have no way of accessing it >.> So, while I don’t figure that out, decided to update this anyway :p
Hey folks! It’s been a while. My college is driving me mad with lack of time and having a band certainly doesn’t help in that field.
Bought a new netbook recently though – an Asus 1225B in dark grey. I completely love it. Still has Windows 7 in it though (I’m going to install Linux Mint here next, just to try for a while). Anyways, this is my current look right now :)
I change my mind all the time, so my desktop never stays the same for long xD
This time, I added a second conky with the time in large so it’s one of the first things I see, and a calendar which is really useful (I’m working on putting Google Calendar there though, so I know my appointments as well).
My theme is now Radiance, since I wanted to see my laptop “light up”, and that’s about it. ^^
If you’ve just installed Openbox you’ll notice the ugly windows (Windows 95 like -.-) and such.
Well there’s a *simple* solution for that (well a set of them).
For starters, I use nautilus as a file manager and it’s based on Gtk 3.0. There isn’t really anything out there to edit Gtk 3.0 settings (at least that I know of) so I’ve searched and finally found a solution.
So, as I was changing wallpapers I realized I never posted anything about it. In Openbox, there isn’t really a manager that does that for us (like in Gnome, KDE or XFCE, …) so I use feh. It’s light, easy and it works fine. Only thing is – it’s via terminal.
But it’s really easy to use. Let’s see…
Nothing special here, just installed Faenza icons, changed the color on my tint2 bar and changed wallpaper…
Anyways, on another note – my future plans…
I swear I haven’t forgotten you guys I just didn’t really change anything during vacations…
