Default Simple Desktop for OpenBSD 6.0

The setup guide and configuration files were updated for OpenBSD 6.1. The older guide is provided until this version of OpenBSD is no longer supported by the project maintainers.

OpenBSD60_SimpleDE.tar.gz

The download will be named as a "php" file. Rename the file OpenBSD60_SimpleDE.tar.gz with
$ mv attachment.php OpenBSD60_SimpleDE.tar.gz

Extract with
$ tar xvzf OpenBSD60_SimpleDE.tar.gz

Then change into the OpenBSD60_SimpleDE directory and open the README with your preferred pager. The README should take you the rest of the way. If you use the default fvwm window manager, one xterm can be used for the README and a second xterm for the commands.

Shep
Are you using lpd or cups (combo) to print in your systems?
Have been reading your guide and look to give it a try soon.

I personally use lpr but the default package list in the guide provides cups. There is a comment about selecting install packages in the README. Just delete cups from the package list if you wnat lpr.

My wallpaper is randomly selected from set of wallpapers indexed from 1 to "ILOSC_TAPET" inclusively.
Wallpapers are meant to be found inside "/home/open/tapety/z_logo/" directory.
Variable "losowa_liczba" is meant to store random integer number from 1 to "ILOSC_TAPET".
Not impressive, but makes system look slightly less monotonous.

Code:
#!/bin/ksh

typeset -i ILOSC_TAPET=4
typeset -i losowa_liczba=$(( ( RANDOM % ${ILOSC_TAPET} ) + 1 ))
/usr/local/bin/feh --bg-scale /home/open/tapety/z_logo/${losowa_liczba}.jpg

This works as well:
Code:
/usr/local/bin/feh --bg-scale --randomize /home/open/tapety/z_logo/*.jpg


EDIT: also, rather than:
Code:
eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg`
This can be used instead:
Code:
sh "$HOME/.fehbg"
Thanks for the guide shep, it is very useful

Thanks for spotting the error. I had changed the ~/.config/openbox/autostart entry for the wallpaper to
Code:
 # Load feh Wallpaper
(sleep 0.5 && ~/.fehbg) &
but overlooked changing the forum guide.

I will correct the forum guide above.
