I run the default "runx" under Linux that starts fvwm. I like the fvwm
for its speed and fancy colours. However Openlook certainly has more
in its default configuration for people who do not want to hack.
I reckon X still has a long way to go toward an object-oriented
interface to compete with Windows or OS/2.
I did manage to make the display more interesting though. By modifying
the .xinitrc to start .openwin-init I could make use of OLWM to save the
desktop for me. Is there any better way to do this?
I also write a small shell script package that allows XV to be fired up
in background at intervals to load new images to the root X window. It
- 60 most popular colour selections for the background colour at
the finger tip
- Time setting for distance between the displaying of images.
- Global settings of the above values versus local settings per user.
I suppose the whole slide show can be done by XV itself with limitation
and the cost of holding XV all the time in memory.
Is there any thing out there already doing this nicely? Or any one may
want to try this and give me some comment?
