... is a playground for me. I wanted to test some things: without reinventing the wheel again and again, using existing resources like windowmanager (openbox) and desktop-iconsoftware (idesk). ~

My hope was to fasten and simplify handling.

I used shr unstable with all updates until 2009-10-15 and made some changes on it.

  • windowmanager: openbox and obconf (patched few lines of code)
  • desktop-software(icons): idesk
  • keyboard: literki
  • screenlock: zedlock (modified)

Download

Install

untar it onto an ext3-sdcard. nothing more is to do. boot with qi.

Usage

It bases on shr, so the base is shr-like. If you want to get illume, just rename .Xsession to .Xsession.unused

Tips

When you use obconf, the configuration is "copied" into .config/openbox/rc.xml and furthermore used from there Minimized Windows are excluded from the slide function, you have to bring them up with menu -> windows

Knobs, touches ...

  • single click on an icon starts the program which lays behind .idesktop/<application>.lnk
  • AUX locks the screen with xtrlock. Pressing one more AUX unlocks the screen
  • POWER short pressed suspends
  • POWER for more or equal 2 Seconds shuts the system down with init 0
  • Slide(drag to the right, for example) on the top bar of an application switches to the next application
  • Double Click on the topbar of an application shows the Main Menu
  • Double Click on the empty desktop shows the Main Menu
  • On the left of the topbar is the knob for minimizing the app, on the right topbar is the close knob

Menus

if you installed new applications and want the menu updated, use:

 /usr/bin/makemenus

Sources / Patches

  • openbox needed to have a little patch because of the behavior of the om-applications: client.patch [4] and prompt.patch [5]
  • i wrote a little helper, which places text on the root window: [6] Lic: GPL_newest
  • my tests and xminimokostatus, valadbusclient can be found here: [7] Lic: GPL newest
  • the patched xtrlock can be found here: [8]
