Iru by niiklas Iru by niiklas
Alright, my first deviation and at the same time my first setup using Arch Linux. Admittedly, the shot doesn't offer anything particularly new on the modding front. In fact, as some might notice, it's heavily inspired by ~thrynk/lyrae's shots which simply can be understood as a token of my appreciation for her amazing work. Rest assured that any future releases from my side will build upon a more self-developed layout and concept.

The colour scheme, however, was built around the fantastic wallpaper I found on customize.org (link below) and the song "Irufushi" by Super8 & Tab (hence the name "Iru"), whose atmosphere I tried to capture in the shot as well. It's definitely a nice setup for me to use, but I'm already making plans for a new one; again, this time utilising a little more of my own ideas. However, I hope you can find at least some appreciation for it.

Gtk: Dyne by ~thrynk/lyrae, modded by me
Pekwm: Dyne by ~thrynk/lyrae, modded by me
Bmpanel: Iru by me
Icon set: ALLBLACK by ~Mandarancio
Conky: layout by ~thrynk/lyrae, customised by me
Wallpaper: Unnatural hue by form
Calender: dzen calender by urukrama, customised by me
Miscellaneous: Pidgin with Minimal Status Icons by ~FrostTyrant, Mousepad, gmrun, gqview, thunar and xcompmgr

So long - nik

You can find the original conky setup here. But I can also upload my edited one when I get back home if you prefer this.

Uh, and the file-manager is thunar or pcmanfm?

Oh yeah, forgot to add that to the apps list. It's thunar. And the picture viewer is gqview before the question comes up. I added it to the list nevertheless.

And thanks for the comments so far everyone. Appreciate it.
