Very nice. It does look good! I like Gdesklets. I wonder if Conky will be included in the repos when 7 comes out?

Conky 1.9.0 (the version in Ubuntu 14.04) already is available in the "backport" section of Trisquel 6's repository!

No you don't. Conky 1.9.0 is is the main repository of Trisquel 7. I was just pointing out that you do not even need to install Trisquel 7 to enjoy that latest version of Conky.

Things that I have here that did not work on T6, a Wacom tablet to work with Krita, 3D acceleration without crashing teh windowing system with Celestia and finally my Samson mic works with Audacity. Very cool.

Oooohhhh! It's Celestia! :D
Have you used Space Engine? Disappointing it's only available on Windows.

Forgot to mention. I'm using the pcmanfm file manager in that shot. I can't be doing with file managers that don't give an at a glance "Space Left on Device" type readout.

You can easily have that in Nautilus (GNOME's file browser): just enable the "Status bar" from the "View" menu.

There is no Status Bar option in the View menu for Nautilus that I can see.

I translated from French. Here, it is the fifth entry in the "View" menu. Also, I am still on Trisquel 6.

If for some reason, it disappeared from the menu in Trisquel 7, you can still probably enable it through 'dconf-editor' (that you can, e.g., run from the prompt you get with Alt+F2). Navigate to /org/gnome/nautilus/window-state/start-with-status-bar

There is no "start with status bar" in that section of dconf on Trisquel 7.

I wouldn't be surprised if it has been moved to a separate plugin. If you want to find out if this is the case, search the Trisquel package names for "nautilus". For example, you could do "aptitude search nautilus" in a terminal, or you could use Synaptic's search feature.

Sorry for the outdated fix.

Just another example of the pig headed stupidity that infects the Gnome Devs.
Remove a feature for no reason - get howled at by users - completely ignore them.

Eventually I'm expecting Gnome to be locked down completely, so that nothing can be added, or changed or customised. At which point pretty much everyone will stop using it altogether, apart from the serious potato heads who have applauded every regression, removal and vandalisation of what used to be the best OpenSource DE there was.

It wasn't removed for no reason. It was removed because GNOME doesn't need it. GNOME uses a "floating" status bar that appears and disappears as needed.

For the record, the exact same thing happened with Firefox. As far as I can tell, Abrowser 30 doesn't have any option to show a constant status bar.

The GNOME project removes unneeded features. This is a good policy; after all, you can't leave features in unmaintained (they might break or partially break eventually, and that would just confuse users), and maintaining unneeded features is a waste of time. If either of these builds up, it can become a huge problem; users would be annoyed, or very little development would get done.

By the way, this is a free/libre software community, not an open source community. See: https://gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html

Not to mention the waste of screen space!

Anyway, it is true that there is, now, no easy (0-click) way to know the space left on a partition. The floating bar only gives the status of selected files.

A status bar is not an unneeded feature, it's a vital part of a file manager.
Unless of course you were being sarcastic, in which case, I agree.

Yes, I'll go and stand in the corner with the dunce's hat on for a bit. Eventually I'll get the hang of the lingo. To be honest I still find it hard to say Linux with the US pronunciation. In English the name Linus is pronounced
Linus (where the i is spoken like eye) and not Linnus. Then there's the GNU prefix and the 'don't use OpenSource anymore' and the is it free or libre or gratis or all three? Or shall we just call it kosherware? ;-)

I wasn't being sarcastic. I don't think being able to always see the amount of free space on your hard drive is a "vital part" of the file manager. I've never made use of this kind of feature on any file manager I ever used. It's not information I need to know often, and the information being a couple of clicks away in the Properties window is sufficient.

I spend periods of time where the amount of free space left on my HD is less than 1GB and/or copying files to smallish USB sticks so the wife can watch the content thereof. It's no service to me if I have to open a terminal and type df -h everytime I wish to see how much space I have left.

My issue is that these are all steps towards the day when GNOME has 1 button which, when pressed, triggers a sound file that says "GNOME recommends Apple devices". All other functionality having been removed as unnecessary or frivolous.

Hm? Why would you use a terminal command? Just open the properties window and it tells you the free space you have.

Why would you use a terminal command?

It just doesn't ever occur to me to find a UI alternative. If I can't see what I want 'at a glance' I tend to go to the terminal. No idea why. Probably because it's there.

You only need to left click on the background of Nautilus and select "properties".

What's the problem with a short 'df -h' ?
Takes one second...

Nothing, and it's more informative than an attached pic!
