/home/tc is of course a "virtual" directory in my-data.tgz you need to explicitly save it (ie when exiting)
flwm = fast light window manager (if you need to google it)
flwm is meant to maximize speed and space... so all menus are hidden until needed. the scroll bar is on the left the upper left corner has the "iconize" which minimizes to the "hidden menu" the title is at the top the upper right corner has vertical maximize and horizontal maximize buttons the upper right corner X closes that window (and application)
right click on the desktop or on the edge of a window gets you to the menu... moving the mouse allows you to highlight different menu options (choose to switch focus to another application or even start a new shell, control panel, or a new application)
Note that you can use the tab key or arrow keys to cycle through the choices (no mouse!)
alt-tab OR alt-shift-tab brings up a window of open programs (and the menu to open new ones) each time you press tab it will highlight the next item press enter to choose (therefore slower to change focus than the normal alt-tab)
ctrl-alt- + (control and alt and plus all together) = resize current window larger ctrl-alt- - (control and alt and minus all together) = resize current window smallerr ctrl-alt-arrow keys = move the current window around (up/down/left/right)
opera browser specific alt-f4 to exit opera ctrl-tab to move to the next tab ctrl-shift-tab to move to the previous tab
f11 to use opera in "full screen" mode ctrl + shift + + (control and shift and plus) = increase text size on the current page ctrl + - (control and minus) = decrease text size on the current page
AppBrowser = install new programs (from either Local Storage or through a remote Repository) Control_Panel = Apps Audit = set which apps are started on boot OnDemand = "install" an application Backup/Restore = copy files/changes to the my-data.tgz file SystemStats = hardware and operating system info (dmesg) etc...
CUSTOMIZATION .ashrc is the alias/profile control for the command line but I don't need my nano -S --line-numbers as it seems on by default! =]
I did make ll='ls -ahl' (unfortunately the root user has a /root/.ashrc which is more difficult to update)
.setbackground script controls the background (ie color and logo.xpm)
esetroot -b "#4f5f82" -c "$HOME"/.logo.xpm
esetroot is spefically for setting an image as the background... -b = background color, -c = center
/home/tc/.wmx controls the menus that appear from the alt+tab (or desktop click)
~/.wmx ln -s /usr/bin/gimp ~/.wmx/"Gimp" cat << EOF > ~/.wmx/"Terminal" #! /bin/sh /usr/local/bin/rxvt -ut EOF chmod +x !*
.Xdefaults seems to control the default terminal?
root@box:/home/tc# cat .Xdefaults AtermscrollBar: true Atermtransparent: true Atermtitle: Terminal Atermforeground: white Atermbackground: black Atermfont: fixed AtermcursorColor: green Atermfading: 70 Atermshading: 50 Atermcolor12: DodgerBlue1 AtermsaveLines: 1000 fltkscheme: gtk+
I immediately modify the "cool" transparent reverse white on black to readable black on gray with no neon colors...
funnily enough, /root has a different .Xdefaults
root@box:~# cat .Xdefaults AtermscrollBar: true Atermtransparent: true Atermtitle: Terminal Atermforeground: white Atermbackground: black AtermfaceName: Vera Sans AtermfaceSize: 11 AtermcursorColor: green Atermfading: 70 Atermshading: 50 Aterm*color12: DodgerBlue1
If you want to play with fonts then see /etc/fonts/conf.d e.g. cat 40-generic.conf
Color12: DodgerBlue makes more sense when you realize that ls -ahl can show you hidden directories that are executable in blue...
Color10: = executable files - sorry, not green = neon green! darkred So if you look in nano /usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XTerm-color you'll see all of the awful decisions (cyan, really!?!?!) Color:
