After 2 weeks of customisations, here is my WMFS2 desktop.

Configurations files can be found there : [link] (Github repo)

Hi, I downloaded your configs from github and pasted it to my wmfsrc but after startx it returns me back to my back to my TTY. I think I configured the conky right... did you add the conky executable to .xinitrc or ~/conky_start and chmod it? Also, I'm wondering if it has to do with the fonts not exisiting. I don't quite understand the whole font thing. i know I don't have the terminus font for sure.... I know the font question is VERY noob. I promise I'll read the font wiki later on but where do i save the fonts and make it work with the wmfsrc config? Also where did you get the font?

Hi. If it gets you back to your TTY, it's not a problem with the font. Certainly a problem with the configuration itself. I'm wondering where, it work(ed)/(s) like a charm for me.
You don't have to save your fonts somewhere particular, just put them where they normally should be : /usr/share/fonts. In this directory, you'll find fonts.dir files, in which the syntaxes are already written, just try the one of your font. :)

Great! Can you share other configs?

Thanks :D.
I'll add applications configs (colour schemes of applications). Otherwise, I didn't configure anything special else :).

Oh, what a dumb i am, the files are hidden :D so do you use conky in bars? I suppose they are not clikable...

Two more examples ; the graphs in the bottom left corner. When I click on them, htop opens up !

Thanks for the explanations, I would need you to explain me another thing: in your wmfsrc under "font" you put "-misc-ohsnap-medium-r-normal - 12-87-100-100-c-70- iso8859-1 ", what kind of font's syntax is it? Can I simply put ohsnap-12? If I could not do so, how do I know what is the correct syntax of all the fonts I have installed? I never knew how this thing works....

I can't really understand the whole syntax of this. Though, it is the X logical font syntax.
In WMFS, you do have to use this syntax (for now).

But, if you only want to specify the font name, and its size; you could put this :
-*-ohsnap-medium-*-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

Or you could go over your font directory, syntaxes for each font are written in font.dir files. By example, I could find the syntax for ohsnap in /usr/share/fonts/local/fonts.dir ;)

Yes they are ! :D. That's the magic of WMFS2, thanks to its new syntax, I made all of my statusbars clickable.
(It's not the case in the shot ; in the bottom right corner, MOC controls appear when a music is playing. Then I do have clickable buttons (play, pause, forward, previous, stop).)

See the WMFS2 wiki [link] which explains the syntax and gives some examples :)
