=== What is feh? ===
+
  
<blockquote>
+
Historically, users have had to add a large number of settings to [[Make.conf|{{c|/etc/make.conf}}]] to customize their Gentoo or Funtoo Linux system, which made setup of the operating system more difficult than it should be. In Gentoo Linux, it is possible to only define one ''system profile''. Think of a system profile as the default settings that Portage uses for building everything on your system. Funtoo Linux uses multiple sub-profiles per system. The following profile types are available in Funtoo Linux:
feh is an X11 image viewer aimed mostly at console users. Unlike most other viewers, it does not have a fancy GUI, but simply displays images. It is controlled via commandline arguments and configurable key/mouse actions.[http://feh.finalrewind.org/ Feh homepage]

== Installing feh ==
+
=== Использование epro ===
After adding your USE flags (or not) to <tt>/etc/portage/package.use/feh</tt>, you can emerge feh:
+
<console>
+
###i## emerge feh
+
</console>
+
  
== Using feh ==
+
{{c|epro show}} отображает текущие настройки профилей в вашей системе:
=== Set desktop background ===
+
{{console|body=
<tt>feh</tt> has several options for setting your desktop background:
+
# ##i## epro show
* <tt>--bg-center</tt>: Center the image file on the background. If the image file is smaller in resolution than the screen resolution, it will have black borders around it.
+
* <tt>--bg-scale</tt>: Fit the image to the background without repeating it, cutting parts of the image off, or using black borders. Because of these changes, the aspect ratio is not preserved.
+
* <tt>--bg-fill</tt>: Similar to <tt>--bg-scale</tt> except that it tries to fill the image to the screen while maintaining its aspect ratio. This may result in parts of the image being cut off.
+
* <tt>--bg-max</tt>: Similar to <tt>--bg-fill</tt>, except that scales the image to the maximum size that fits the screen. This leads to black borders on one side.
+
* <tt>--bg-tile</tt>: Tile the image across the screen.
+
  
Here is an example:
+
=== ##g##Enabled Profiles##!g##: ===
<console>
+
###i## feh --bg-scale ~/path/to/picture.jpg
+
</console>
+
  
=== Source fehbg to set your wallpaper in Openbox ===
+
        arch: ##c## x86-64bit
After you have run <tt>feh</tt> one time, the directory of the image file is stored in <tt>~/.fehbg</tt>. This file can be sourced in your <tt>.config/openbox/autostart</tt> to load the picture instead of typing out <tt>feh --bg-scale /picture/location.jpg</tt>:
+
      build: ##c## current
 +
    subarch: ##c## intel64-haswell
 +
      flavor: ##c## desktop
 +
    mix-ins: ##c## gnome

~/.fehbg &
 
...
 
}}
 
  
=== Change wallpaper automatically ===
+
=== ##g##All inherited flavors from desktop flavor##!g##: ===
With the help of a simple bash script, feh can be configured to automatically change the desktop background. To accomplish this task, we have to create the bash script. Open up your favorite editor and create a script that looks something like the following, where <code>sleep 1m</code> can be configured to any time interval that you want. Name the script whatever you want. Something like <code>WallpaperShuffle</code> will work just fine:
+
  
{{file|name=WallpaperShuffle|lang=bash|desc= |body=
+
                    ##c##workstation (from desktop flavor)
#!/bin/bash
+
                            ##c##core (from workstation flavor)
while true; do
+
                        ##c##minimal (from core flavor)
    feh --bg-scale "$(find ~/Pictures/Wallpapers/ -type f {{!}} sort -R {{!}} tail 1)" &

Media device mix-ins have been created to support media devices, including external and portable devices, and associated low-level hardware support and hardware-focused codecs. Media devices have been categorized into audio and video categories, and consumer and professional categories.

Our existing {{c|media}} mix-in still exists, and is still pulled in by the {{c|desktop}} and {{c|workstation}} flavors automatically. It now includes the following parent mix-ins:
 +
 
 +
* {{c|mediadevice-audio-consumer}}

 +
* {{c|mediadevice-video-pro}}
 +
 
 +
So typically, you would enable the {{c|desktop}} or {{c|workstation}} flavor, and if you need professional hardware support, you'd also enable the {{c|media-pro}} mix-in. If you needed any additional media formats support, you could enable one or more of the {{c|mediaformat-*-extra}} mix-ins to add the formats you needed. Of course, it's possible to enable only the specific mix-ins you need, and also complement these mix-ins with specific USE variable settings you might require.

Funtoo Linux stores its profile settings in the {{f|/etc/portage/make.profile/parent}} file. Typically, users don't need to modify this file, instead using {{c|ego}} and {{c|epro}} to make changes, but it can be handy to take a look at what the contents of the file look like. A simple server might have profile settings as follows:

Типы профилей

Historically, users have had to add a large number of settings to /etc/make.conf to customize their Gentoo or Funtoo Linux system, which made setup of the operating system more difficult than it should be. In Gentoo Linux, it is possible to only define one system profile. Think of a system profile as the default settings that Portage uses for building everything on your system. Funtoo Linux uses multiple sub-profiles per system. The following profile types are available in Funtoo Linux:

Sub-ProfileDescription
archThis defines CPU-specific settings. Only one arch profile is enabled at install time, and cannot be changed.
subarchThis further refines the CPU-specific settings. One subarch profile is typically enabled at install time.
buildThis defines the type of stability, such as current or stable, and its associated settings. One build profile is enabled, at install time, and is generally not changed.
flavorThis defines the intended use of Funtoo, such as minimal, core, workstation or desktop. One flavor is enabled, and can be changed by the user.
mix-insThese can be enabled by the user, based on the features the user wants, such as gnome, kde, media, mate, X, and hardened.
Note

Flavors can (and often do) inherit settings from other flavors and mix-ins. Mix-ins can also inherit settings from other mix-ins. For example, X is inherited by gnome. The epro tool will show both as being enabled so there are no surprises.

Media device mix-ins have been created to support media devices, including external and portable devices, and associated low-level hardware support and hardware-focused codecs. Media devices have been categorized into audio and video categories, and consumer and professional categories. "Consumer" devices are those devices that regular desktop users might typically use, while "professional" devices are those that professionals, hobbyists or enthusiasts would typically use. Here are the new mix-ins for media devices:

Media Device Mix-inDescription
mediadevice-baseCommon, universally-supported media devices, like IEEE-1394 (Firewire), CDDA, CDIO. Other mediadevice mix-ins have this as a parent.
mediadevice-audio-consumerConsumer audio devices, such as personal portable media players (iOS, iPod, etc.)
mediadevice-audio-proPro audio support, such as JACK.
mediadevice-video-consumerConsumer video support, such as DVD, Blu Ray, V4L
mediadevice-video-proPro video support, such as dv, dc1394.

Дополнения для медиа-форматов

Media format mix-ins have been created to support media formats for reading, writing, encoding and decoding images, audio and video. They have been organized into a "common" collection, for popular formats, and an "extra" collection, which is intended to include "everything else". Let's look at the new mix-ins:

Media Format Mix-inDescription
mediaformat-video-commonCommon (ie. popular) video formats.
mediaformat-video-extraMore esoteric video formats.
mediaformat-audio-commonCommon (ie. popular) audio formats.
mediaformat-audio-extraMore esoteric audio formats.
mediaformat-gfx-commonCommon (ie. popular) graphics formats.
mediaformat-gfx-extraMore esoteric graphics formats.

Использование медиа-дополнений

Our existing media mix-in still exists, and is still pulled in by the desktop and workstation flavors automatically. It now includes the following parent mix-ins:

  • mediadevice-audio-consumer
  • mediadevice-video-consumer
  • mediaformat-audio-common
  • mediaformat-gfx-common
  • mediaformat-video-common

In addition, there is a new media-pro mix-in which needs to be enabled manually, which pulls in the following mix-ins:

  • mediadevice-audio-pro
  • mediadevice-video-pro

So typically, you would enable the desktop or workstation flavor, and if you need professional hardware support, you'd also enable the media-pro mix-in. If you needed any additional media formats support, you could enable one or more of the mediaformat-*-extra mix-ins to add the formats you needed. Of course, it's possible to enable only the specific mix-ins you need, and also complement these mix-ins with specific USE variable settings you might require.

How Profile Settings are Stored

Funtoo Linux stores its profile settings in the /etc/portage/make.profile/parent file. Typically, users don't need to modify this file, instead using ego and epro to make changes, but it can be handy to take a look at what the contents of the file look like. A simple server might have profile settings as follows:

/etc/portage/make.profile/parent
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/build/current
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/flavor/core

Profile settings for a desktop might look like this:

/etc/portage/make.profile/parent
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/arch/x86-64bit
gentoo:funtoo/1.0/linux-gnu/build/current
