I'll just put this here. And here are the configs for anyone that is interested in using them and modifying theme.  I've also included the wallpapers as well.

On a quick note it is Arch Linux running bspwm.

From my summer/autumn feel earlier this month - decided I want to go 90s hacker at the end of April.

Running bspwm, the bar is rendered using yabar, the terminal is urxvt with weechat inside a tmux session.

After a small few month love affair with Funtoo I've decided to go back to Arch.  Here is my recently crafted Arch environment - totally new from previous ones.  Using bspwm as the window manager, yabar for the top bar and lemonbar for the bottom one.  Top screenshot = clean, Bottom = fake busy

wmutils and swm are extremely addictive, the satisfaction of writing your own scripts to control your desktop environment is truly fun.

I'm in the midst of creating an installer script and configuration script to take the pain away of doing everything manually. Should be done by the new year.

If you are interested in the scripts in its current state you can see them at
https://mkfs.io/git/fsociety/dmtwm

The top image is the desktop clean and the bottom image is the fake busy :)

You can also see a small 20mb webm video at

Desktops  - 
 
So I've moved onto an even more minimalist desktop which I call amusingly dmtwm. It uses the wmutils libraries and a 13-line window manager called swm to help focus windows - it truly is a desktop environment that totally relies on your ability to shell script. Totally customisable as long as you know how to script. I've setup a git repo on my personal server for anyone that is interested at the following url:

https://mkfs.io/git/fsociety/dmtwm

dmtwm 0.1 is the first official release.

Before it was green and now it is blue.  I think blue is more fitting don't you think.  Anyway - the configs/wallpapers are available to https://github.com/z1lt0id/2016-dots

Haven't posted here in a while, but I thought I'd post some screens of Dolphin (Wii Emu) running at 2K - the game is Xenoblade Chronicles. And boy it is wonderful (psst.. just like Xenogears).

Running on Arch with a GTX 970 at 3440x1440 (really 2560x1440 because of no 21:9 support). Also has the Xenoblade high res texture pack installed.

I started with Awesome many years ago, then stayed on bspwm and now I am using wmutils + swm. I really enjoy the suckless way.

PS. For the scripts - https://mkfs.io/git/fsociety/dmtwm
