I've released Nocturnal for W10 if anyone is interested: http://fav.me/d9mkk8q
download the whole folder, put it where you want it on your computer
drag and drop the index.html file into your browser, then copy the url from the address bar
go to about:config, search for browser.newtab.url and set it to the address you copied
Decided to say hell with it, and installed Arch.
I don't have a use for Windows anymore. I on't play games anymore.
Ran across a weird problem when messing with bbLean. The text and buttons on my windows were transparent and while looking for way to change that I ran across a button labeled "Transparency" in one of the BlackBox menus.
As soon as I clicked that every menu became transparent and for the life of me I can't figure out how to revert that. Any ideas?
Fixed the transparency problem with the menus, but still can't figure out the other part.
The darker I make the titlebar the more transparent it becomes. The titlebar is supposed to be completely black in the screenshot but instead it's transparent.
Winfag reporting, gotta play my vidya games
Like my second monitor's setup, wg? I'm open to suggestions.
Been staring at the same desktop for like 6 months, want to freshen it up a bit, any suggestions? Maybe a new wallpaper?
No. Almost everything there works with Windows 7,8, and 10 (With the exception being visual styles).
It's not ncmpcpp. It's foobar.
I broke my ncmpcpp and have been too lazy to build it from source.
it's fantastic encoding :^)
No idea what's causing it though because everything in the urlbar is perfectly fine.
The colors (from your icons and album picture on the music player) really fuck with the B/W aesthetic you have going on. You should consider picking a highlight color and getting rid of the rest.
I'm trying out docky what do you guys think?
I'm having a hard time figuring out how the fuck xinit works since I can't make openbox start right with xinit.
With startx everything goes great, but I don't know how can I make tint2 start with openbox using startx, and I'm trying from xinit, but without results.
Someone anon want to give a hand? Thanks.
openbox has an autostart file in the config folder, put your programs you want to run on start in there and openbox will load them for you
if you ever have trouble check the arch wiki, it's very helpful
this is my utility screen
i have 3 screens so i thought why not for rainmeter
Well, /g/ maybe know more, but the same asshole are they, I mean, I know people here using Openbox and stuff (I did a few things this days) and I know I would get a better and friendly reply here.
Now I'm researching why tint2 don't let me edit it. It says "Properties are not apply yet" or some shit like that (not on laptop right now)
I know you post every thread but can you please share your configs. How did you get that sys info, is that a youtube mpc skin?
Would really love your foobar config and browser/chan css
it's a rainmeter skin called rainwaifu, i just tinkered around with it a bit.
>youtube mpc skin
no, that's a firefox addon called popvideo. it helps you play youtube videos in a separate video-player like window. i use potplayer with pix skin for regular videos.
foobar_ncmpcpp_mod with different colours. the lyric window is a separate program called minilyrics.
firefox with puffins' css, you can find it on nanami-tan.
appchan-x, modified colours of the stock theme.
no problem old buddy.
looks very good.
Thanks for the info mate but I really wanted that you share your configs through a download link off mediafire or something, reason is I admire your rice a lot and came pretty close to replicating it but there are some things I can't figure out. editing the browser css and foobar skin is a bit off and i don't know where to start in fixing them. I understand if you're not willing but I really love the dark minimalist setup and it would work great on my dual monitors too. I would really love and settle for just the foobar and browser files
Also what font are you using? I think it's terminus but can't change it on appchan x for some reason
my foobar files are not really neat or ready for sharing but here's the browser css. it's not very different from the stock puffins but anyway:
the font is proggytinyttsz
Rate, constructive critics and suggestions.
5/10 Nothing in your theme seems to match, you have way too many different styles going on at once and they kind of clash with each other.
Plain, simple, can't tell if Mr. Robot is part of your wallpaper or not. 6/10 if it is, 8/10 if not.
3/10 Ugly random rainmeter stuff. Consistent color scheme, even if it's not my favorite.
8/10 I like everything but your font and wallpaper, which is totally just personal taste.
do a quick rate
I changed the color of the font this time, its not permanent, so open to good hex codes
Made the paper myself, haven't finished manipulating the left hand yet.
I'm not sure what I'm going for, tips/helps/recs please
Working on a new homepage, I'm considering making the images shuffle through my wallpaper folders, not too sure though.
I like the transparency, that should continue to your windows too.
Nice consistency with the icons, match the 4chan CSS with everything else, the latest version of it is pretty easy to change, I'd also change the tab text color.
I like the bbLean colors in your first shot, in your second I'd use small icons for the taskbar and change the fb2 skin's colors.
Fixed fb2k, I'm in need of a decent browser and chan css
That's a startpage I made a little bit ago. You didn't change any links in the comics, and Social categories. I was surprised that we both needed the same links for those two categories is all
Didn't realize you were talking about the startpage, thought it was the other anon. But I do like the startpage, I use all the links aside from the comics category where i only occasionally go on oglaf. I think I should change the bg color
not at all. vs is appows 2014, the explorer looks like pic related. top right is normal and bottom right is when you hide title and border.
nice explorer, did you edit the registry or did you use style builder to clean up the icons, also how functional is it? Also what do you use to render your font because proggytiny looks bad on my screen. Thanks for all of your replies
is better if you hoomangs don't no wut the shit I crossed out is.
>clean up the icons
you're talking about the icons normally in the titlebar of explorer?
it's okay in terms of function, i haven't ran into any problems on that front caused by the vs. for the font i think i did some mactype work + tweaked the native windows settings for it but again, i'm not sure. it was a long time ago.
to be honest my whole rice is being held up by spit and duct tape.
One at a time.
>Is that bblean
Yes, but it's not shown.
>What program, top right
>vs and browser please
Kombo and Firefox
>I like the library icons, what are they?
Pretty sure those are custom
>Is this bblean as well
Imma need that rainwaifu ini my man
My second monitor just looks the same but a little bit smaller. If you guys have any tips or guides for Windows 10 that'd be nice.
<-- Guys, what do you call this pixel-ish effect on pictures like this. With the not regular "pixles"
Please help me. I am looking for a good graphical file manager to use with awesome wm on debian testing. It must have as little dependencies as possible. Also looking for a minimalistic firefox theme.
stop using honeycomb and remove the taskbar icons
you can just pin all your applications/programms /folders to your start menu by right-clicking them and choosing "pin to start". then you just need to aligne them and maybe change the size of the icons to "small"
>pic related (some of my icons are bugged tho after updating windows)
you also don't need the cortana icon in the taskbar, since you can search when opening the start menu and just typing what you want to search
Does anyone know where I can find Portrait x Landscape combination wallpapers? There's nothing about it in the catalog and cutting up random 3000x1920 images isn't working out since the ones I find from Google are crap.
Might need to mess with it: download the .xpi, rename it to .zip, extract it, open the install.rdf, edit the maxVersion to something higher than your version of firefox, save, zip it up, rename back to .xpi, drag and drop onto firefox window.
Haven't been here in a while! Upgraded to Windows 10 a few weeks ago on a side machine it kinda hurts... though xbl party chat is a cool
thank you is it possible to get a source on the 4c style? I'm a bit rusty at finding stuff
easy to understand 9/10
Vibex, Syn, Vix, Mode9 and Mono miss you bbs
New to ricing, what should improve? I feel like windows need a different color border. Also, should I install blackbox?
A mix between custom and these: http://fav.me/d8diltj
More people need to do this, it's so much better than having a lot of shortcuts in the taskbar or on the desktop.
Vibex,Vix and Pre had such good rices.
Nice fb2 skin.
You should move the bb bar to your taskbar, though it was made to sit on a bbLeanbar.
Does anyone know where this guy got his icons from?
Or can direct me towards where I can get similar geometric + minimalist ones?
I have tried google extensively and can't find them in the OP packs.
I found these on shutter stock - they look similar but I'm not dishing out 50$ just for hipster icons
It's WhiteNoir from neiio on DeviantArt and I think it only works on W10. I also used ClassicShell to make the taskbar transparent. Wallpaper in case you want it (from Mononoke Hime)
>\z-sorting (staging folder, so basically /downloads for pics, when ur too lazy to label and categorize shit off the bat you can save it there and do it later when internet is down or whatever.
That's actually really smart. insta saving pics to my generic picture folder for instant use always makes my shit messy really quick. I'm gonna start doing that, hopefully it doesnt just become a huge trash folder full of stuff i dont have the time to sort though lol.
i was thinking about doing something with more main folders and less subfolders, so it loads a little quicker on my slow ass HDD.
i think that would be a good start, then just have to subfolder the shit out of it
mines kinda fucked too but it werks:
- computer shit
- - unixporn
- - homescreens
- - keyboards
- friends and family
- - finished edits
- - comics todo
- Random crap
- - screencaps
- - dark souls non walls
- - futurama non walls
- - too small walls
- - zdzislaw beksinski
- - chiara bautista
- Phone pics
- - DCIM
- - clover
- - snapchat
- - millionsOfDirectoriesHere
- z-sort (staging folder for when ur too lazy to name shit/put it in the right folder.
most items are named with descriptors separated by _, so like
or some shit. hopefully formatting wasn't too autistic.
soz deleted my shit, the formatting was beyond fucked in that post haha
and yeah, ocasionally it becomes a trash folder, but i have lots of pics (almost 5k wallpapers, 413 in the sorting folder, and ~10k in pics) sorting through it and naming it all is sorta theraputic for me though, just turn on some trance and go for an hour or so.
i have the same kinda things, and i wish it would happen more often. sometimes i just wanna clean my desktop, battlestation, room, etc and just make everything perfect, other times i just want to sit around in my own trash and browse the internet all day. I wish I could get into my cleaning trances every day lmao, my computer and living situation would be much cleaner. coffee helps
good tip for life in general. i think i'm finally ridding myself of my hoarder tendencies. ive been giving boxes and boxes of shit to the goodwill recently lmao. i just need more time in the day to clean 19 years of filth
first time posting feel free to rip me a new one, any recommendations on programs to use is also welcomed
Those better be organized.
you're goddamn right they are, sir yes sir.
Is this windows or Linux, this is so comfy and I wonder if I can recreate this on my os
So I installed your theme and everything works fine but some bar show white stuff like the one on left and the task manager color is inconsistence. Are you going to fix it?
Thanks in advance though, great theme to go along with my Chihaya background
Updated and themed Task Manager, wasn't even sure you could change it tbqh.
I'm not too sure about the context menu, mine looks fine.
You do have to edit the path if you don't follow the Virtual Customs method though, nothing to do w/ RTM.
UxStyle with http://virtualcustoms.net/showthread.php/70555-Uxstyle-and-Theme-Signature-Bypass-for-Windows-10-TH2-AKA-1511-AKA-10586
It's very important to always know the percent usage of all of your cores amiright.
I myself don't know what's wrong with the task manager not showing the color properly on the right and the white bit on context menu when using your theme.
I tried changing to Numix and it works just fine, that's why I ask you in the first place to see if you missed anything or about to update you theme.
Also I see that your explorer doesn't have the minimize and close option, is it the No Border theme version?
>don't know what's wrong with the task manager not showing the color
I hadn't themed it yet.
>white bit on context menu
Still no clue why that happens.
>explorer doesn't have the minimize and close option
No it's not the theme, I use a AHK script to hide the titlebars.
>I hadn't themed it yet
Ahh sorry I didnt quite catch it the first time I read it
Mind sharing the AHK you use to hide the titlebar?
Will wait on your next theme update. I like the dark blue color instead of straight dark that other theme offer that's why I'm sticking with yours.
Thanks Moko, just saw it was updated and try it. Got everything working as intended except the white bit on context menu which I have no idea what's causing it since it only appears whenever I use your theme.
It doesn't bother me as much but it still intrigues me what causing it though.
Can anyone recommend me a blank/minimal/plain white windows 10 vs that is not shit, closest would be http://neiio.deviantart.com/art/WhiteNoir-575127957
but the black scrollbar and line at the bottom bug me
Hey guys, huge noob here. How do I change what is before what you type in the terminal? Pic related
it's called the prompt
you configure it differently depending on what shell you're using
>Also, for mine, I just got this laptop, and while I have done successful visual styles on other comps before, I promised myself I would wait until at least a week for this one.
>having utorrent, steam, origin, skype, LOL, Chrome, etc all pinned to taskbar, AND to desktop?
ANON PLS. Pick one. Better yet, clear all that shit from your desktop. Especially CCleaner. If you need to use it that often to justify having it on your desktop, you got problems bigger than your layout.
I'm a pretty plain person.
yes, it's Rainmeter, but it works for me.
