@wiktor hah :) Thanks for reading
@wiktor Yep ;-) https://mastodon.social/web/statuses/101401693951934069 I like Awsome’s dynamic layouts model more than the i3/sway model. At this point though maybe it’s worth giving sway another go (or hacking it to do what I want).
@mmstick I was fine with regular GNOME on Arch until I started using Awesome. Now positioning or resizing windows manually, or having them overlap seems backward. I basically want Awesome and a display manager that properly handles displays coming and going at this point.
I think I’ll try GNOME with PaperWM. I tried KDE on this laptop on the weekend and no windows would show up!? There were entries in the task bar but no visible windows. #Linux

offering obsolete X terminal computer hardware
I have three ~20-year-old X terminals (Tektronix/NCD NC200) which I'd ship to you if you're into obsolete computing hardware. I haven't plugged them in for ages but I did get them to work once upon a time, and it should still be possible to use them with modern X applications. It's also supposed to be able to run Java 1.1 applets via "Netscape NC Navigator", a bespoke browser build, but I never tried that.
The required OS image, which has to be served over the network, is still available from the current owner of the product line, and I've saved a copy just in case: http://www.thinpathsystems.com/index.php?modules=support&content=patches&pro=ncb (That's labeled a "patch" but it actually contains the entire system software.)
Somebody's notes for configuring a similar product for use with Linux are at http://bio.gsi.de/DOCS/NCD/xp200_linux.html and there's general advice on the required network environment in several of the old Linux HOWTOs:
@bugaevc ahh right then yes it’s probably not needed at all when used via gnome-shell
@alcinnz Poinless but funny. Although it doesn't actually work and the HeaderBar renders strangely. It loads the page but nothing even shows up the webview.
In my GTK travels last night I also discovered the broadway GTK backend. It renders GTK apps via a server in the browser. Here it is showing a quite responsive and faithful rendition of gedit. For more info check out the main developers blog: https://blogs.gnome.org/alexl/
@codewiz I was only trialing it in a VM bit I quickly found things I missed from Awesome. :-/
@bugaevc no it definitely depends on it. One place meta_show_dialog is called is when an application stops responding and it asks if you want to to wait or force quit the application. I’ve definitely seen that one. There’s also this bug complaining about it showing up incorrectly https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=981149
@hyde_stevenson No it's centerwork from Lain https://github.com/lcpz/lain/tree/8d1a9054798accb9dfe754fcaf6264609787868d
