First I wanted my first entry to be nagging about my wireless but well, wouldn’t be such a nice way to start out.
So I decided to rather start out with my system
I’m running Arch on a HP Compaq nc2400 kind of subnotebook which actually runs out of the box without any problems (except for my wifi problem which is to follow).
Lately the Arch community and all of its maniacs for CLI applications and tiling WMs have taken over all of what I am doing voluntarily on my computer so I spend much time on looking for nice and fast solutions for everything. Actually the only thing I still do via GUI is browsing the internet. And even that recently got a cut-down since I have decided to use newsbeuter for my frequently visited news-pages.
Well now, so what I’m running is:
- WM: wmii (wmii-hg from AUR)
- Terminal: urxvt (-d/-c) –> screen and dvtm as multiplexers
- Browser: vimprobable/firefox (only where vimprobable fails)/links
- Media: mplayer, vlc for broken files
- OpenOffice for homeworks (to be replaced by LaTeX)
I could go on there but I consider these the ones where I am more or less fixed at this point of time. I wanted to add vim for an editor but I thought it’d fit better in this comment. Uuuh, I should stick to small posts about cool stuff
For wmii I am using the almost stock dash script as wmiirc. Since I lack any profound programming knowledge this is where I can still do the most. I might give python a try in the future though.
Uhm… Well wasn’t this interesting?
Well, for the future this blog is supposed to be a way to publish my configuration issues nice new discoveries (like xcalib, yeah!) and wireless issues grr! So nothing fancy. But since many times I am looking for a very particular problem a small blog like this saves my day so this is my contibution
