I'll take a look - i have read it is essentially infinitely customizable, which is cool. I'll check out your repo, appreciate the link.
fvwm is nice but takes really lot of memory for high fancy desktop.I have never played with fvwm but every time I see a screenshot I am impressed. I just need to go back and get my PhD so I can figure out how to configure it
Wow! How did you get that mixer/equaliser in xine Trihexagonal? I use audacious in OpenBSD for its equaliser/visualisations. Did at one time try xine, but found the controls too small for my liking (despite trying a range of skins), but seeing your skin/setup I'm tempted to revisit xineView attachment 5760
My X61 running FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p10. It serves as my .mp3 player and is never online so I leave well enough alone. It sits next to my recliner with headphones plugged in so I usually don't bother to turn the music off when I take off the headphones. The next time I pick them up the music is already playing.
It's from the Rob Zombie film Lords of Salem and that's his wife Sheri. It may not seem very Christmas-like to you, but I was thinking of my ex who shares the same name and does to me...

That's multimedia/xmms. It has the option for a double-sized interface that is more along the lines the size of your player if not a little smaller and over 600 skins in multimedia/xmms-skins-huge.Wow! How did you get that mixer/equaliser in xine Trihexagonal?
I only partially agree with this statement. In this window manager, maximum functionality and maximum beauty (obviously a matter of taste) can be achieved by using minimal computer resources. For example, in Debian i made this. When the system starts, it occupies 120 megabytes of RAM.fvwm is nice but takes really lot of memory for high fancy desktop.
quite a lot still.I only partially agree with this statement.

I had Debian in mind. In the picture (the link I placed in the previous message), Fvwm is running on Debian.Where is systemd in freebsd ?
No no. By no means. I haven't been touching this product for ten years and I'm not planning to do it. My God. Please protect me from Microsoft!Let's install Windows

Agree: on the Gnome side, "tracker" was a horrific mess and caused a big performance hit. I always disabled it the few times I used Gnome 3 and never missed any functionality. I did not have the same experience with baloo (?) on KDE 5 - not sure what it was for but I didn't notice any performance hit. I did always disable searches in both DE's, mainly because I found them pointless.The main problem is the CPU usage not the RAM when using heavy weight DEs ... in my exp.
lxde and xfce are with the time actually closer to kde. Gnome is not that far.Actually, I was surprised (on Linux), how light Plasma/KDE5 was. Yes, it's dependency heavy, but resource wise, it was under 1 gig (600+meg) at first logon. That whole premise is largely crap since memory is so cheap but some people fixate on it for whatever reason. I guess it matters if you are running an SBC or something with very limited memory and no expansion capability.
Funny, but since switching to FreeBSD, I have gone completely minimal and really enjoy it! I went from openSUSE + KDE5/Plasma to FreeBSD 11.2 --> 12.0 with x11-wm/cwm and I am very happy. I do find myself using some QT5 tools though, mainly because I really like them (editors/texstudio), for example.

sddm is very very nice , but it is quite slow, slim remains a cool workaround, with nice settings in slim.conf, even t autologin.Running a stripped down Plasma5 in lieu of KDE 5, with balloo (file search) features turned off, I find CPU usage to be about as low as it is in LXDE, although memory usage is still much higher in Plasma 5. Memory usage decreases slowly but surely if the Plasma 5 desktop is left open but allowed to remain idle. If LXDE is left open but idle, it actually uses less memory and CPU than the sddm login manager does. The same is not true with Plasma 5, but at 1-10% CPU usage, and around 200 MB RAM usage or lower when left idle for an hour or so, it's still acceptable for me for my purposes, even on a low memory system.

man cwm:just can't make it persist on all groups for whatever reason.
How to get xclock? By compiling or install xclock-1.0.7_2 Analog and digital clock for X ?Nice wallpaper - I see you like xclock as well I just can't make it persist on all groups for whatever reason.
