^^ ja, good point. indeed i merged them. thanks wux :)
^ thatis what i did for terminus, and other x11 fonts work through that method. it is just ttf/xft i have trouble with.

@Drew: just checked the fonts in my config file. currently using Gelly 8 for the i3 interface, Gelly 7 for i3bar. now that the xft-mystery is solved, i will experiment more :)

xft-fonts in urxvt are working thanks to my dear knowledgeable friends. the terminal font is Oxygen Mono. might not stick around because the g's are cut off strangely, making them look a bit too close to q's for my comfort. i3 font is Gelly 8, i3bar is Jura Light 8.

titlebars are bloat, so removed them using

Code: Select all

for_window [class="^.*"] border pixel 1
as found here: https://faq.i3wm.org/question/2885/disa ... ompletely/

for those who would like to know how to efficiently use symbols instead of numbers for your workspaces, there is a bit of my i3 config in there that shows how i did it. i just assigned the symbols to variables, and then called that variable in the two different places in the config where those are needed (switch to workspace & move container to workspace). that way, you only have to change your symbols in 1 place.

as you can see i have also made a slight modification to the colorview script, to keep with the bbq's proud heritage of using naughty language. the fanboy's options, of course, would be to change it to 'bbq', but i'm way too childish for that.

It worked, perfect. Another scrot from Rhow with a broad explanation of the config, we are impressed. :)

Now if you insist on using geany to edit text files, you'd best look at that gtk theme...

thanks! well, i find i just really like Geany, and it isnt extraordinarily bloated, so i'll suppose i will insist. will check out gtk themes! currently working on a custom script for my i3status. anybody know where that forumpost is from *somebody* who queried system-info directly and piped it to a bar? cant find it through damn forum search...

Rocking setup, rhow. And about Geany: I bet is not even as bloated as my Emacs, so do not worry about it. ;)

Yeah man, I need to use some gtk as well, although sort of coming around to working on not using it.
weechat/mcabber over pidgin. Actually that's the main one.
I think that's why I ended up with a flat colour, a nice transparent term with lots of exciting things in it then a flat gtk lump.

Did you mean Joe's Clinky?
Depends what you want to pull out. seems you're using conky?
you can pull stuff out of the various '/proc/loadavg' files.

thanks, Clinky it was! i already managed to figure most if out myself through Google though, but will check out his script for sure, might be even easier.
oh, not using Conky btw :)

i have now transitioned from i3status to a custom script for displaying the same shit. aside from wanting to display moc-now_playing-shit, the main reason for doing this was because i found no way to change i3status' default delimiter | to something else. i dont like non-customizable shit, so i worked around it by cutting i3status out of the equation (except for its refreshes, that is).

Code: Select all

i get an error when i try to post my code... testing... 
fuck it, pastebinning: http://pastebin.com/7jGHpTKp

as you can see, the $line variable is never called in the echo, because it was made obsolete.

new scrot? sure.

got an error when trying to post my code through the forum's code-blocks. something in the code apparently didnt jive with the server, threw a General Error. as soon as i removed the code all was fine, which is why i pastebinned it. try doing a post with the code from that pastebin here with code-blocks around it, see if you can replicate? or not, whatever you want Wuxy :)

Ahh gotcha, yes it doesn't like posting unicode, or certain ones anyway. I couldn't post the set of cards in the other thread there.
maybe some sort of protection. hangon - checking something.

EDIT: something about mbstring and multibyte settings in PHP. not gonna fiddle :)
needless to say it's a known issue :)
