Hi,

I've seen several screenshots on this site and using Google but I am interested in seeing more, people using different windows managers, programs, text, etc. Post your shots here please!

very nice... mine is far more plain... wmaker with steel theme only a few icons! very, very boring but loads in 3 seconds smile.gif

i've got minimo, xmms, dopewars, and windowmaker installed.

is that a pielframa or pdair case?
mathemajikian
It's the pdair case from Conics. It was free with my Zaurus purchase. smile.gif

I tried minimo but like konq-e much more. It does everything I want it to. I thought windowmaker was alittle more memory hungrey than fluxbox. I might give it a try later but fluxbox has always been my desktop of choice.

Cool screenshots mathemajikian!, yeah that the OpenBSD as it should be tongue.gif

By the way did you tried to compile the new ettercap NG 7.3, i tried with no luck, it will be awesome if hand a help here.

PS: Zaurus looks cool without those screen stickers on it

Mathemajikian,

I just installed 4.0-beta and gave konq-e a try... very impressive! First impression was that it handles Hotmail and doesn't crash like minimo... looks like you sold me on that one. Windowmaker still my choice due to package and no build time. Loads fast and easy touch screen access unlike Blackbox (fluxbox I assume too) which required a bit of playing to get it going with the stylus.

Anyway, 4.0-beta rocking xmms, windowmaker, konq-e, and soon dopewars. oh and kismet... all working fine.

Waiting for the C3300 and needing a good WM theme...
mathemajikian
Add the following to your .fluxbox/keys config file inorder to get the fluxbox menu and window properties via the keyboard.

Control w :WindowMenu # ctrl m presents selected window options menu
Control m :RootMenu # ctrl m presents fluxbox menu

I used WM a few years back on my first 3.2 FreeBSD box. It does the job quite well. Does the WM menu just popup when you click on the screen? Also can you post the memory usage of WM that is shown via top? For Fluxbox :

SIZE RES
3524K 3244K

Konq-e is great! I wish I could get w3m to build. I have heard that it is really nice. Minimo should be renamed bugimo. Maybe Opera will release a browser for us soon?

xmms is good but I hate the jumpy/choppy sound I get when I open up its little menu. So I decided I would use cplay instead. This player is a great console based mp3/ogg player. I tired mp3blaster since I have used it in the past but the audio didnt work correctly.

If you have a gmail account you can use pine as a email client to access your mail. Plus if you had your hotmail account back when they allowed pop3 access you can also use pine to check/read your hotmail emails. I use it for accessing my gmail account and it works great!

Have you noticed any improvements using 4.0-beta? Finally I'm sure you have seen these WM themes but I will post the link just incase:

mathemajikian,

I notice you are displaying Japanese on your zaurus. Have you also configured the Japanese input methods to work correctly? If so, would you mind sharing your configuration?

cheers,
bruce
mathemajikian
Sorry, the japanese screenshots are someone elses. Mine are in English with the OpenBSD background.

Here is the original posters post

Have tried to get Japanese input working, too. Had it working for jVim and kanji term but not X. Tried to get some combination of SCIM and Anthy working but had compilation troubles, etc.

I keep the stock Zaurus ROM installed for the Japanese functionality. It'd be nice to have it in BSD.

It looks like liferea.

just a silly question :

how do you take screenshots under openbsd ??? smile.gif
ZDevil
I use scrot (compiled on my own). It's a very tiny yet handy screenshot tool. wink.gif

Knowing tha most of my recent posts have related to problems on OpenBSD, I thought it would be nice to post some of my successes. This is an old thread, I thought that even some of the Debian followers might like to see what can be done on OpenBSD with relatiely little effort. I've not been able to do this much on Titchy, Yonggun or Zubunu Linux although all three distributions have impressed me and will suit some other people perfectly.

I'm running OpenBSD 4.4 and as you can see, icewm as my window manager. Icewm is nice and responsive yet still quite flexible. I've also found it easier to get font sizes that are readable on such a small screen. The apps shown are just a fraction of what I've got running on it. Compiling can take a long time but the process has been pretty reliable, so it is well worth the wait to know that you'll end up with a package that is optimised for the actual CPU, not just ARM architecture.

So, here we go...

Forgive the poor colours on these shots which are due to the version of VNC that I've used to capture them. In reality the colours are bright and vivid and the wallpaper fades nicely from black to blue.

Screen2 shows Minimo and xterm while Driftnet captures any image files that happen to be floating elsewhere in the wireless ether. Driftnet works in promiscuous mode. As a browser, Minimo is a good compromise between speed and functionality. I'm currently comiling Galeon which is also quite useful on the Z

Screen3 shows the Etherape network mapper and a client for Nessus, the network vulnerability scanner (note nessusd is the server and that is also running on the Z)

Screen4 Time for some office applications Here ares gnumeric and abiword.

Screen5 shows use of PERL to run the SQLiX vulnerability scanner. Any PERL modules not in the ports tree can be downloaded and compiled without problem from CPAN. Try doing that from Cacko or Angstrom !

There are some pretty heavy-weight applications here and they all run fine provided there is plenty of swap.

I've compiled jamvm and classpath from the 4.4 port tree but I've found that the java application I want to run fails with a core dump. I'm trying to run paros proxy which says it requires Java runtime 1.4.2.

Any help here would be welcome.
