For instance with urxvt all you have to do is write the launcher to be " urxvt -g 100x1 " which will make it 1 line and 100 chars long. I'm not sure if there's a position option as I define mine within my window manager's c file, but a quick read threw of the man pages or google should tell you if it does or doesn't. If not then you may be able to tell OpenBox where to place a specific client, I'm not sure I haven't used it in forever.
Actually; a quick google; https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=342381#p342381
A bit old but may still be usable. Someone more versed in OpenBox's configuration may be able to help. And I would cut out the Xdefaults ( Xresources now ) part and just set the geometry from the urxvt -name portion by -g. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Another favorite of mine is dmenu; http://tools.suckless.org/dmenu/ ( more of a luancher than a command line )
Which looks more like; ( bottom bar )
And you may be able to find a " scratchpad " already made up for openbox, again I'm not sure on it as I don't use and haven't used it for some time tongue.gif
Excellent! I was actually kind of hoping it was software I was already familiar with just being used in a different way, I've used urxvt as a desktop terminal (i.e. in the wallpaper) and such before, but never as a scratchpad, I'm used to bloated environments that have some sort of similar functionality (usually bound to Alt+F2, though I would probably put my urxvt on a different key than that.

I'm actually the editor of three different weekly papers all within about 60 miles of Raleigh, NC, based in the towns of Princeton, Fremont and Mount Olive (of pickle fame). But I leave that stuff at the office door when I'm off-duty. My interests outside of work are a lot different.

Sorry, didn't mean to turn this into a Nightwish thread! I'm actually one of the mods for their official USA fan club, which crossed into my "day job" profession when I wrote the review of their L.A. concert for the band. Anyway, Nightwish is four guys and a female lead vocalist; they changed lead singers in 2006. When they changed singers, the music changed too, and it took a while but they're as good now as they ever were, at least IMO. But a lot of people won't accept the new singer. It's sort of like the Van Halen/Van Hagar conundrum back in the 1980s, for those of you over 30. And don't feel bad if you never heard of them. They're with a label that operates outside normal U.S. distribution channels, so they don't get promoted much here and we get their releases much later than the rest of the world (42 days for Imaginaerum, although I ordered it direct from Finland and got it when they did.).

As for the laptop, the conversion to Linux has been a success. It's actually useful for web browsing and can even play YouTube videos as long as you don't ask the weak CPU to do anything else. I consider that a success, because it was useless running XP, even after I doubled the RAM to 1 GB. I do a lot of stuff on my desktop that requires Windows and Windows software, but I've been using Linux on laptops quite a bit for years. It performs better and is more stable.

Are my eyes deceiving me or is KDE in the lead?! eek.gif
I never thought I'd see that. Now if only more people would make things qt/KDE friendly without the add-ons being needed.

CPU usage per core? Temps?
BTW, what window manager are you using? I think I missed it where you mentioned it. Openbox? Awesome? That other weird thing in Haskell I never remember the name?

Severely hacked DWM. tongue.gif

The Haskell one is XMonad which I also use from time to time, been thinking of switching back lately too now that you mention it.

And not bad ideas may use those.

HA. Nice. Loving your setup, in any case. The two tiling WM I could use daily were Xmonad and Awesome.

P.S.: Downloading Bodhi Linux/32 for my old Thinkpad. Will post updates smile.gif
Didn't feel like re-doing the Arch install since I don't really know my laptop on my fingertips. (it's a gift from parents, to class in the necromancy practices).

How about some blue bars with grey borders and music symbols instead of " playing: "?

Nice.
If you can find a musical font, you could swap the two notes for a sol key

Personally I can't see it, but this is supposed to be the unicode one:  (HEX 1D11E)
