The default look

The default ROX look, with the xfwm4 window manager and the default GTK theme. Several ROX-Filer windows are open, in various styles. Shot by Thomas Leonard.
The drives icons are Andrzej Borsuk's (local copy).

ROX-Filer's view modes

ROX-Filer can display files with different view modes : big list view, normal list view, large icon view, mini icon view, and icon with image preview (note that all view modes can have image preview). Desktop icons and background image on these screenshots are managed by ROX-Filer (see the --pinboard switch in the manual).

ROX-Filer and FVWM.

This is my current setup, ROX-Filer2 (CVS) and FVWM 2.5.10-r6 (Gentoo),
I have many more desktop snapshots in my website,

My desktop features Icewm theme TrueCurve (theme modified; also, Icewm has been patched to allow borderless buttons), GTK2 theme "Xfce-curve", Rox Trashcan (icon modified), Rox Video Thumbnailer, Icons from Foood's iCandy XP, Wallpaper from Digital Blasphemy

GUI components

There are shots of various different details of the interface here:

ROX & XFWM4/OroboROX & GDesklets

My ROX-Desktop showing the ROX-Panel with ROX-Menu, Pager, Tasklist, ?System Tray, etc. and two ROX-Filer-Windows (Icons: Noia/Noia Warm).

The first shot shows my configuration with XFWM4 (the windowmanager of the XFCE-Project), the second with OroboROX. You can see that they look nearly the same, but OroboROX runs a bit faster than XFWM4 on my machine. On you can find the Wallpaper, Icons and Themes I used for my desktop. Please contact me If you have any other questions: Simon Templer

  • XFWM4

  • OroboROX

Rox + Ion

A combination of rox session and the ion window manager. So far my favourite session and my favourite WM, but not sure yet how compatible they are together. Shot by Ben Cawkwell

ROX and OroboROX again
OrobROX with Xaguar Theme, gtk2-Theme Anianian (all SVG, with a few handmade extra icons to fit the style) and most of the icons you can see here are the beginning of a new ROX-SVG icon theme.

ROX on Enlightenment

Here's a shot of ROX-Filer and ROX Panel running on the Enlightenment WM (0.16.8) using the Winter theme. It includes the E pagers and E Iconbox and the ROX System Tray. Running are ROX clock,Calendar and Session applets, the eRSS news feed, KDE's kopete chat program, evolution is in Window 4, Eterm is minimized.
