Structure

dotfiles

User configuration files and some cool scripts are stored here. Respectively, some $HOME/.*/** , and $HOME/data/bin .

packages

Installed software be it from distro package manager or others.

system

System configuration files are kept here.

setup

A bash script with functions to help save, create links and install the configuration.

Setup

./setup links

Creates symbolic links in $HOME with the same structure as what is inside the dotfiles dir. For example, $HOME/.config/awesome/rc.lua -> $HOME/configuration/dotfiles/.config/awesome/rc.lua. I choose this structure cause this way I avoid adding/ignoring lots of files and slowing down my $HOME because of zsh git plugins and prompt. This way it is almost impossible to add private files since I must move them explicitly to $HOME/configuration/, the git repository.

./setup save

Saves all the system files to the system folder and info about installed software to the respective files in packages.

./setup install

Not tested since I don't use it, I normally restore my home from the borg backup. But should create an user if needed, get private stuff from a backup, clone the repo, set up the links, install the apps, load nvim pluggins and compile what is needed, install fonts, etc. I'll test it eventually.

./setup fonts

Installs some beautiful fonts

I use

keymap

I use two layouts, Option "XkbLayout" "gb,pt". I only use pt for chatting, everything else I do with gb. Meaning, all shortcuts are configured with gb in mind. Coding and using vim with an english layout is much better :)

distro

backups

dns server

colors, themes and icons, filemanager

I use solarized everywhere, consistency :). Numix and Faenza-Darkest. PCManFM.

terminal and shell

urxvt, zsh with zplug.

editor

https://github.com/neovim/neovim
I use neovim, dotfiles/.vimrc is outdated and I no longer use "normal" vim. vim and vimdiff are aliased to nvim and nvim -d.

wm manager

https://awesome.naquadah.org/ - My configuration is pretty simple I don't like to have too many things in the way.

  • Cheeky for easy application jump, shortcut: modkey /
  • Added support for loading programs on boot from $HOME/.autostart with custom rules.
  • Move the tags creation up and created a table with mapping inverted, tag["name"]->index for easy reference in the programs table.
  • Created a table of programs with custom rules and shortcuts for easy configuration.
  • Run or raise to jump to program with shortcut if it is already running.
  • I changed some other shortcuts but I no longer remember which ones exactly.
  • Modkey tab, switches between current and last window.
  • Alt tab, cycles the windows forward on a tag
  • Alt Shift tab, same but the other way
  • Modkey \, switches between current and last tag
  • Modkey f, to set window to maximize.
  • Modkey shift f, to set window to full screen.

keys

https://www.keepassx.org/ - to hold credentials for websites, etc.
https://www.gnupg.org/ - to hold all keys including git keys

Partitioning and User dirs

I am using mbr-bios because of the samsung_laptop bugs in efi. The two first partitions are for windows and the other one for linux. For EFI add the ESP partition and change the partitioning scheme.
