    • I'm impressed!

      Did anyone ever tell you that you have too much time on your hands? :)
      • man, you'd see my other config files and you'd say it took me several years to get them like they are... wait, it took me several years to get them like they are...

        if you want some here's a list of my must have (they're in /etc/skel/ when i finish installing a new distribution):
        - .bashrc
        - .dircolors (very exhaustive)
        - .fvwm/* (minimal theme)
        - .indent.pro
        - .inputrc (works good with a lot of apps)
        - .links/links.cfg
        - .lynxrc
        - .mc/ini (with undocumented functions)
        - .perlconsolerc
        - .perlcriticrc
        - .perlt
        • yep. I am. Thanks

          • heh, in fact i wasn't really expecting someone to reply, yet you did. Give me a few days to comment the configurations files (when possible) and i'll post them back here, or in a .bz2 file somewhere on the net. Let's say next Sunday (sept. 30) you'll get all the files.

            I just ask for the delay to clean up my config directory, it's a real mess in there and i don't have the time to sort everything right now.

              Take your time. I asked because I was curious to see how people organize their things. Lately I seem to waste time in simple yet important tasks with a net result of less time to code :(. Having a working (and portable) set of config files is certainly an asset.

              cheers --stephan
