    Wait, did somebody say ancient IceWM themes?!

    You mean the ones in Debian's icewm-themes package, or the ones at http://ftp.chg.ru/mirrors/ftp.x11.org/pub/themes/icewm/ ? Because I spent several days perusing the ancient Yahoo! Groups mailing list before finding a theme name to lead me to the latter.

    I'm STILL organizing those themes by "Look". This is day 3 of that alone.

    Those are the ones Mulenmar! Glad to have you aboard! I popped into that discussion on #iceWM when you were talking about it, downloaded them and passed them on the Roky. I go by "lowellgrippo" on IRC. Great find and thanks!

    The main difference is that urxvt provides support for unicode, and it can display different fonts/locales simultaneously. I've actually not looked at rxvt in a quite a while, so perhaps it can now do those things, as well... not sure, though.

    When in xterm, I always used middle-click for pasting chores. Is that the way you do it?

    That's it. Just highlight, place cursor into xterm and click down the wheel. Back when I was using more feature rich terminals, I liked konsole and aterm.

    It's my understanding that aterm was merged into rxvt-unicode, and now rxvt-unicode has become the officially recommended terminal for the AfterStep WM.

    Lightweight non-DE dependent apps I'm using:

    terminal: xterm
    file manager: pcmanfm, lfm
    text editor: vim or nano
    cd/dvd burning: simpleburn
    web browsing: chromium or midori
    email client: thunderbird (ok not that lightweight)
    ftp client: gftp
    archiving: xarchiver
    calculator: galculator
    pdf viewer: mupdf
    graphics manipulation: darktable, picasa 3.8
    image viewer: viewnior
    word processing: abiword
    video player: mplayer, gnome-mplayer
    music player: deadbeef, ncmpcpp + mpd
    miscellaneous apps: dvtm, screen, wicd, pypanel

    Are you trying to avoid any kde or gnome library?

    Abiword has GNOME deps but I believe if you compile without spellcheck or printing support, you can avoid them. Darktable also has GNOME deps. I don't think anything else above does.

    Thanks reed9, some of those apps look very interesting. I'm not familiar at all with mupdf, simpleburn, or viewnior so plan to check them out.

    Yes, I'm trying to avoid gnome/kde bloat on this box, but I am using abiword even though it does require a few gnome files. Every once in a while, the abiword devs seem to add another gnome file dependency, which is rather irritating.

    terminal: xterm
    file manager: Finally tried Rox and I like it.
    text editor: vim
    cd/dvd burning: I usually dual boot, so either Brasero or K3B
    web browsing: Firefox
    irc client: Chatzilla
    calculator: Xcalc
    graphics manipulation: Gimp
    word processing: Abiword
    music player: XMMS
    system monitoring: Like Dan, the little applet
    games (cards, mahjong, etc): Diablo 2, Galaga, FrozenBubble, Nethack


    For video, I've never really settled on a favorite, so I can't comment there.

    Thanks for the comments, jayd512.

    With rox, it certainly seems to be a like it or hate it type thing. I've always liked it but it took about a week before I developed a feel for it and chose the like it side of the fence.


    To all...

    it appears that we have a lot of xterm'ers here. I do use it for emergencies, but perhaps it's time to delve into it more deeply.

    Antix is not the only O/S I run using Icewm. Use it in Puppy also. Some Puppies come with LXterminal . Others with Sakura

    Another Terminal I like using is evilvte

    Since most other apps in Puppy Linux are Puppy Centric like PUDD for dding drives/partitions. That is all I can think of that is independent for the moment.
