if you want it to constantly stay there and update every 10 seconds add something like this to your .xinitrc.
Code:

[...]random bits[...]

while true; do
   file
 sleep 10
done &

exec dwm

I'm not using xinit to start dwm, I'm using gdm. That's ok though, I realized I could use sleep instead of wait. now however, I need it to exit. it updates, but I'm not sure if the process terminates (I don't want it to leak and have like 10,000 of these things after a while) so far I see them increasing in number, how do I kill this first one after it starts the second one?

gdm should read .xinitrc and execute the commands in it tongue.gif

Anyways you could do it pretty much the same from within the status file itself, if you want to limit the number of files it takes to execute the commands.

wouldn't that just keep opening the process until there's like 100s? could I make a second script that sleeps then starts the first one again? then I could just let the main script exit?

ok, so I added the bit you gave me to the script, but it still leaks almost a mb every cycle (ie 60mbs an hour) then bash flips out and my computer froze frown.gif

EDIT--

found a solution. made a second script with this:
Code:
while x=0; do ~/.dwm_status.sh; sleep 10; done

it doesn't look to be leaking and works great! unless something happens, problem solved!

Given the size of the base materials and the fact that this seems to be a custom wallpaper, I did what I could via reconstruction. (note: not color-perfect. I can spend more time on the lips if needed)

You are SO awesome. Seriously.

Now I have another couple requests, if you don't mind/have any spare time. Could you do this same background, except in grey instead of white? And with the same grey one, could you make another with the words "from freedom came elegance"?

If you can, that would be Awesome!!!
