Hi to all.

I remember that some one give the idea for use jwm and like x windows
managers to construct a UbuntuStudio release. I

I said I did not like the idea that connect to external monitors was
difficult, and that this is automatic in UbuntuStudio, easy to configure.
In addition I could not set my external monitor VA1931wa-LED ViewSonic to
75Hz to avoid eye strain, but now I found a solution with this script:

#! /bin/bash
# Este es el script que yo utilizo para ponerle 75Hz a mi monitor externo y
al mismo
# Adaptado de "Using xrandr and gtf to add a new mode to your X
configuration at runtime" http://www.arunviswanathan.com/node/53
# Este script funciona primero apagando el monitor de mi laptop y luego
poniendo el nuevo modo al externo y los 75Hz
xrandr --output LVDS1 --off
xrandr --newmode "1280x768_75.00"  102.98  1280 1360 1496 1712  768 769 772
802  -HSync +Vsync
xrandr --addmode VGA1 1280x768_75.00
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1280x768_75.00
feh --bg-scale /home/wachin/.icewm/wallpaper/Jesus-inside.jpg &
# Para ponerle un wallpaper al escritorio de icewm después que he puesto
los 75Hz.

With this script first:
1.- turn off laptop monitor
2.- turn on external monitor
3.- enable wallpaper (of course in second because this are on)

Now I working in the config files and make a entry in my linux blog

icewm Administrador de Ventanas para PC con bajos recursos en Ubuntu

is only in english, but contain very usefull content.

Now I install antiX Linux 2016 to learn the


folder, inside this are more configurations that I need to learn.

This antiX have others x window manager like jwm, but I think that IceWM is
the best (this is the default in antiX).

I think that is possible fo UbuntuStudio Team make other release but with

Then it would be two download releases that the public would

1.- UbuntuStudio XFCE based
2.- UbuntuStudio IceWM based

But now I have only a several problem. Wine Apps have very bad renderin
fonts, the appearance is bad, and I use a Windows Software that I can't
use: e-Sword
