This repository contains my dotfiles used to configure the softwares I like to use. Hosting my dotfiles in a Git repository allows me to deploy them easily across the machines I work on (home, work...) and to keep them centralized.
I use Xmonad as window manager, Vim as text editor, tmux as terminal multiplexer, urxvt as terminal emulator, Zsh as shell and the excellent dmenu as an application launcher, Vim file opener, and more...
These files contain tricks, tips and code snippets collected around the web. Feel free to re-use (part of) them.
The files are stored in a separate folder and are symlinked to the home directory.
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/jlefrique/dotfiles.git cd dotfiles ./install.sh
Clone the repository:
cd ~ git clone https://github.com/jlefrique/dotfiles.git
ln -s ~/dotfiles/vimrc ~/.vimrc ln -s ~/dotfiles/vim ~/.vim ln -s ~/dotfiles/tmux.conf ~/.tmux.conf ...
Switch to the
~/dotfiles directory, and fetch submodules:
cd ~/dotfiles git submodule init git submodule update
Set zsh as your default shell, and restart your session:
chsh -s /bin/zsh
Fix screen's terminfo to display italic and standout correctly when tmux is started in urxvt, and verify.
tmux_terminfo.sh tmux font_test.sh
Then do the same as root:
sudo -s tmux_terminfo.sh
Note that there is no italic version of the Terminus font, therefore the font is replaced for italic characters.
Set a wallpaper using feh:
feh --bg-fill ~/wallpaper/my_wallpaper.png
