I am about to visit the UK on a home trip and see this laptop at a good price.
Is anybody running Crunchbang on this model or similar?

Hmm...thread is marked solved...but what is solved?
@wagmic1 Did you get conky-lua working?

#4 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Void Linux vs Arch Linux » 2014-03-30 23:21:16

@wagmic1
Have you tried installing lua-devel?

My main machine is Crunchbang-also for Mrs.Chameleon  cool
However, I have run Arch and will do in the future.

VOID is really fast and the XBPS package system is fast also.
I run VOID as my main 'testing' distro on my test machine.
Repos download super fast here in Luxembourg.

You have to consider these points;
1. This supreme effort is run by one guy 'Juan RP'...just like corenominal...but without a Debian Base...so unique in that sense!
2. Easy install but to cli only...you have to grab what you want for 'X'+/- desktop wm/de
3. Nice small and friendly community but don't expect the package volume as per Arch AUR.
4. I have been running VOID for over a year with no issues for me (32bit and 64bit)
5. Rolling,rolling cool updates are super fast.
6. If you can you read the wiki...then there should be no major issues for you.
7. I would not recommend for newbies.

EDIT: I have compiled quite a few packages from git, for example, without major issues, dependencies are available in the repos.

EDIT#2: @tamikan
Definitely worth your time to try out  wink

+1 cool

Easy install to cli.
Install desktop as to your liking.
XBPS is fast!
repos are fast!
support is friendly and fast!
just be prepared to read the wiki and take your time and you get a super stable up to date rolling distro...not based on anything else!

VOID ROCKS! cool

ps. Crunchy rocks cool too...but I am a die hard 'distro hopper' with a few SSDs to play with  wink

Hi Mr. Corenominal and devs,

Would it be possible to increase the avatar size a wee bit?
90x90 maybe...
I've just changed mine...but it is a tad too small for my liking.

I understand the image restrictions... for obvious reasons.
Perhaps this could be a 'luxury' option after 'x' number of posts....

Just a thought Guys and Girls  wink

@photonucleon
Yep... Kingston HyperX SSD VOID 32bit install.
1 second from GRUB to TTY login cool
VOID is cool and xbps is fast.
Some packages might not be available yet but often the developer will oblige a package request...
I have found most packages available for my requirements of tiler window managers and openbox.

#24 Tips, Tricks & Scripts » [Solved] Conky script formatting » 2014-02-08 20:42:50

I have this ongoing problem with a Lounge Radio script and conky.
I raised this issue in the conky thread some time ago;
http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 6909&p=238

...still got the same problem when I just set up the script again...I never did find a solution.

The Lounge Radio script;

#!/bin/bash
    #pulling info from loung-radio.com for conky by nlinedesignz(at)web(dot)de 2013
     
    wget http://www.lounge-radio.com/code/pushed_files/now.html -O ~/loungeradio.html >/dev/null 2>&1 &&
     
    artist=$(awk '/id="artist"/{getline; print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed "s/<div>\|<\/div>//g")
    album=$(awk '/id="album"/{getline; print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed "s/<div>\|<\/div>//g")
    track=$(awk '/id="track"/{getline; print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed "s/<div>\|<\/div>//g")
     
    wget "http://www.lounge-radio.com/code/pushed_files/$(awk '/id="covercontainer"/{print}' ~/loungeradio.html | sed -r 's/.*src="(.*)" width=.*/\1/')" -O ~/loungeradio.jpg >/dev/null 2>&1 &&
     
    #echo '${image ~/loungeradio.jpg -p 42,42 -s 123x123 }';
    echo 'Artist:' $artist
    echo 'Track:'  $track
    echo 'Album:'  $album
     
    exit

Conky;

Result works but I get these weird little box symbols at the end of the printed output;

Any ideas on how to clean up the script output would be appreciated... wink
