Reno desktop - awesomewm || ( openbox && xfce )

Reno is an evolution of my previous configuration, https://512mb.org/git/Yessiest/awesome. This time, this bad boy can fit 90% more configuration options, through the use of AWMTK2 (or RenoTK, haven't really decided on the name).

Through advancements in the science dark magic art of lua metatablery, AWMTK2 makes it possible to create complex and visually rich themes, while mainting relatively low memory footprint.

Thanks to the ethically questionable decision of employing JSON to Widget Layout conversion, this desktop allows for customization of panels, context menus, lock screens, and other widget containers of various sizes and shapes.

Screenshots

Current default theme, Reno98

Totally not windows 98 trust me it's legally distinct

  • Works best with Chicago95 for GTK and QTStep (QTStepWMakerDefault in particular) on Kvantum.
  • For Wine apps, use winecfg, go to Desktop Integration and set "(No Theme)" under "Theme". A matching QTStep theme is "QTStepBeige", but it doesn't quite match Chicago95, so you may want to configure the window colors using the Item editor, or by installing a custom theme.

Unity: a theme that mimics the look of Ubuntu with Ambiance theme

Totally not ubuntu guys how can't you see that

Installation

Reno internally requires ImageMagick to generate thumbnails for images. Please consider installing ImageMagick for things to function correctly.

  1. git clone the repository to your .config folder
  2. Rename reno folder to awesome
  3. Install AwesomeWM (version 4.3 as of right now)
  4. Change your shell, terminal emulator, browser, keybindings and other settings in desktop.conf
  5. (Optional) Read additional installation steps in extra/README.md
  6. Reload your awesomewm if you have already loaded it.

Keybindings and user guide

  • press win+s
  • read extra/README.md
  • enjoy
