Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

Installed on a Samsung NP300V3A-S04NL. Installation process was insanely smooth. Haven't had time to see if everything works, but wifi did. (I'm anticipating fun times with the switchable nVidia/IntelHD GPUs.)

You guys should check out the sound problem some ppl in irc and me have problems with the sound, in vlc for example when the noise starts we put it in fullscreen and it gets good and vice versa...

Just installed form the latest image. Running nicely so far. Just a teenie weenie bugette: the multimedia menu item still lists Gnome  MPlayer but lauches VLC. Has anybody mentioned that? Rather like pointing out the Mona Lisa has a speck of dust on her left cheek I know...

I experienced similar sound distortion in Waldorf.  I was able to fix this by removing PulseAudio; now I don't miss Gnome-Mplayer.  There may be other sound problems that are codec- and/or soundcard-specific though.

Using #! Waldorf 64-bit on a Thinkpad Edge E535 with Liquorix-Kernel-3.7.0.6-amd64 for about a week now. Although installed via DVD - no problems so far. System is very stable, low on resources and fast.

Thanks corenominal!

Installed lastnight on toshiba m100 laptop, so far it's flawless! even the touchpad is working correctly with x & y scrolling, 3rd/middle button which window$, mint and ubuntu have never been able to get right. even picked up the dodgey replacement wifi card form some old dell laptop. ordered a new battery for testing but sofar im getting 20mins out of the six year old original brick. win7 kills it after 10mins... so #! doubles your battery life! haha.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

I just installed this on a, circa 1999, compaq armada m300 with a p3 @ 600mhz and 192 mbs of ram.  Had to remove the hdd and install it on another machine due to no dvd drive or booting from usb support, I'm glad I have an adapter.  So far, of all the different distros and versions tried on it this one has the best mix of ease of use and speed.  Actually boots faster than win 7 does on a laptop I bought last year.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

The netinstall script for users who can't install from usb has finally been updated to include all the improvements in the latest Waldorf. The new cb-metapackage makes selecting packages much easier, and the config package that installs /etc/skel also almost makes the script redundant! You could now just add the CrunchBang repos and install cb-metapackage and almost get a standard Waldorf install. The script now just has to tidy up some loose ends. Still, I like to think it still has a useful job to do...

There's now a "How to" thread for users here: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?id=25098

Installed on my Toshiba Laptop with a wireless card that has always given me troubles in the past (RTL8188CE) and had wireless working right out of the box.

I've been using it for around 45 minutes with no interruption (whereas I'd connect and then disconnect after around 5 minutes before). Great work!

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

I've used #! before some time back and I downloaded the 20130119-i486.iso which I installed on my 2005 HP nx6110 with a Dothan-1024 1.4GHZ Celeron (OC'ed to 1.87GHz via a jumper wire) with 1.5GB RAM.

The installation was painless, the whole distro is very fast, everything is polished and just works really well. One can see a lot of work and thought went into this.

Guys all I can say is is job well done! As far as openbox distros go #! is the benchmark all others should be measured against!

I only have two minor issues,
1. Ram usage on a fresh boot is about 180MB which I think I could whittle down.
2. This laptop is really old so the LCD is not as crisp as newer ones so I'm wondering if a bit of font config/hacking might help. Very crisp running in a VM on my desktop though.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

Sorry, a bit of very late feedback on Waldorf - anyway, nothing anyone had to hold their breath over, but FWIW:

On a Sony Vaio laptop VGN-G1 (~2007, 1GB RAM, 1.2GHz Centrino)

Live session booted up smartly, and everything looked OK so quickly went on to install.

Install process went perfectly.

No hardware issues, beyond a couple of minor interface things, that I would have expected anyway. (Memory card socket, magnetic card swipe and thumbprint sensor not supported, function keys for screen brightness needed tweaking.)

I've always thought graphics were a major CrunchBang strong point - integration of GTK and Openbox themes, icons, fonts... The #! 9 (Ubuntu Jaunty) black-and-white theme is still maybe my favourite for the way it feels like an extension of the terminal, and how it sets off the addition of a few colourful icons, but Waldorf continues the gradual smoothing-out, greying-down process that Statler started and it certainly looks beautiful. Now, my eyes could really do with a bit more contrast, but beautiful it is, and no doubt you youngsters will have no readability problems.

I do have one personal issue with the theme that probably bothers no-one else, but while this desktop has a mousewheel for scrolling the Vaio's touchpad scrolling is very unreliable and jittery so I prefer to use the scrollbars. Waldorf's scrollbars are almost invisible and when they do work they scroll a whole page at a time, just like the PageUp/Down keys. When you just want to nudge the view a bit this is very annoying. Sorry. I'll be forced to learn about GTK theming just so I can tweak the Waldorf theme and get normal scrolling back (and more visible scrollbars).  neutral

To be honest, that's my only complaint about Waldorf itself - everything else seems perfect!!  cool

A couple more niggles about changes in the Wheezy software, for which corenominal is not responsible of course:
*) Geany, if you set "load files from the last session", will drag those files in every time you click on a text file, gradually building up to a huge collection till you close them. On Squeeze it only loads the last session if you call it without an argument, which to me is much better.
*) Thunar seems to have reverted to its former annoying habit of offering to "eject" a USB memory stick instead of unmounting it. Once "ejected" it no longer appears.

Minor, under-the-hood stuff:
*) The cb-metapackage is a great idea, but bloat-hounds might have noticed that Waldorf's apt settings now install packages' recommends by default. (That's needed to avoid having apt offering to dismantle your #! system if you uninstall just one of its components, I guess.)
*) A couple of needed files are still not brought in by cb-metapackage - in particular /usr/share/images/desktop-base/grub-splash-crunchbang.png is called for by /usr/share/desktop-base/grub_background.sh which comes with the #! grub, but doesn't seem to be included in any #! package. (just a plain black image)
*) Debian security suggest an apt line of

deb http://security.debian.org/ squeeze/updates main contrib non-free

but #! includes only the "main" repo. I guess there's little on offer from contrib or non-free but it wouldn't hurt to include them would it?
*) The cb-welcome script titles the section where 'dist-upgrade' is run "Update installed packages". Maybe less confusing to change "update" to "upgrade"?

As I said, very late and mostly trivial, but fwiw...

Now that you mention it I have to agree, they are really hard to get a hold of I've noticed and my eyesight is just fine. Maybe the scrollbars could be made a bit darker or some colour thrown in so they stand out more.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

@johnraff:  Look for 'style "murrine-scrollbar"' in the Waldorf theme; changing all the colors within that style to something like "shade (0.30, @bg_color)" should make the scrollars more visible for you.

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

^thanks pv I'll give that a try.
I don't suppose you know where the scrolling behaviour (incremental vs whole page) is set? There are other gtk themes packaged with Waldorf that still have the old behaviour so it shouldn't be too hard, I'm hoping...

Re: Updated Waldorf "Testing" images: 20130119

^ Don't know about that; just about all the themes I've tried give you progressive scrolling if you grab the slider and page scrolling if you click in the scrollbar above/below the slider.  I think if you change these two lines

    GtkScrollbar::has-backward-stepper = 0 
    GtkScrollbar::has-forward-stepper = 0 

to

    GtkScrollbar::has-backward-stepper = 1 
    GtkScrollbar::has-forward-stepper = 1 

that should give you the "stepper" buttons at the ends of the scrollbars, allowing you to scroll the equivalent of a few lines at a time; "has_secondary_*_stepper" will give you up & down steppers at the other ends of the scrollbar as well.
