I'm looking for a floating WM with mouse support that integrates nicely with GNOME, has features (i.e. not Metacity), and has some decent themes available (it would be nice, though by no means a necessity, if it could use Metacity themes). Other than having good themes, Metacity is shit, and I've been looking for something capable of replacing it for quite a while now. I'm considering e17, but I'm not sure how nicely it plays with GNOME (or, perhaps more accurately, how nicely GNOME plays with e17).


e16/17, openbox, fluxbox, ect. What kind of features do you want?

Give openbox a look. It is a bit minimal in the theme department, though.

An app, similar to xpad, but a bit more configurable, and not as ugly, but doesn't require a DE.

Separate horizontal and vertical maximizing, shading, moving apps between workspaces by dragging past the screen edge (preferably in a way that dragging to the right on the last workspace switches to the first workspace), configurable compositing features (especially per-window translucency), configurable key bindings and option to use most features from menus as well, good GNOME integration, no slapping of stuff I don't need on my desktop, and, importantly, magnetism. Window grouping is also nice, and decent theme support is almost a requirement (I'm not as much of an eye-candy fanatic as most people, but I must be able to bear looking at my window borders ;) ).

e16 is decent and does almost everything I want it to do, but it doesn't go well with GNOME's workspace switcher, and somehow always makes my menus translucent (when compositing is enabled, anyway) even though I've selected Opaque in the theme transparency settings.

Then use E's workspace switcher?.. which tbh, works much much better than Gnomes, and it's less ugly and bloated.

Wait for page 20 before forking it. Might as well make it a round number.

I'm slowly switching to CLI-based apps for all my needs, and I was wondering if there exists any terminal that will let me configure it to flash on the taskbar in KDE when irssi, etc tries to 'beep'. afaict Konsole will not do this, but if it does please point it out to me.

I don't know of a single term that will do that.

You could try changing the titlebar throgh an irssi script, though.

I'm looking for a CLI music player that is based on directory browsing, not on a central database (e.g. mpd and its clients).

MOC exists, but I'm just looking for alternatives.

That would be sufficient. I was just generally looking for a way for it to notify me visually - beeps annoy the piss outta me.

mp3blaster has always been a favorite of mine. There is also mpg123 and mpg321.

rxvt-unicode can do that.
Set : URxvt.urgentOnBell: true , in .Xdefaults. I haven't used KDE that much to tell if it will work but it works with xmonad.

A thread search gives no joy, so...

I need a program/script that will examine torrent files in a directory, and then report which are duplicates based on the hash for each
