#1 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Solved]Help needed to create minimal #! build. » 2013-06-10 16:37:11

You could always look at my deb netinstall guide and pick the stuff that you would normally need... Here is my deb netinstall guide.

I would also highly recommend trying the newer builds from linuxbbq like threeswm or CLIT, especially since you're going minimal.  Another nice build is the the latest AntiX-core iso. Any of these three has all the CLI apps you would need and probably one more step to install xorg and spectrwm.

Not sure... Android has a lot of applications to satisfy almost every user.

postimage is one of my favorites as well.

#4 Re: Devel: CrunchBang 12 "Janice" » Ideas for Janice » 2013-05-23 04:00:41

I would be fine if it went back to statler default apps...

Mplayer2 instead of vlc would be nice. I don't see much merit in removing gparted, since it is possibly one of the more convenient tools to use during a live rescue session.

+1 gutterslob for mug shots, and +1 for vastone for his app preferences/votes. I agree with both of their train of thoughts

I think you're better off with a fresh netinstall and making your own post-intall script, which isn't too hard to do. Just a bunch of terminal commands in a bash script and call it a day.

Unless I'm mistaken, there is no security repo for the unstable.

#8 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What makes you feel warm and fuzzy about your custom system? » 2013-05-04 20:04:37

My same thoughts as Unia and VastOne. I also like the fact that I'm in control of the system.

I think aerosnap is rather simple to accomplish as a bunch of keybinds via a script. I believe that script is hosted somewhere on this forum.

If everyone posted full-size images of their desktops in the modern era, it would be 20+ pages long of 1920x1080+ images with each image being approximately 13mb+ a piece in png format.  If this event were to happen at crunchbang, I would do as anonymous has said and migrate to a more sane community forum.  Hi-res pictures belong to image sites such as flickr, deviantart, instagram, etc.

Honestly, old school can be more practical than the information picture overload of today's era.

Example: More often than not, command line is faster than GUIs.

#10 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » posting like it's '99? » 2013-05-01 15:57:33 internet can be as slow as dial-up especially when there are more than 5 users gobbling up the bandwidth.

#11 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Advise what distribution you choose? » 2013-04-17 16:09:07

I recommend antix or slitaz. Both are fantastic distros. Bbq is another great distros if you like being on sid.

#12 Re: CrunchBang Talk » The Future of Desktops » 2013-04-15 00:28:11

Desktop #1 - HTPC
Desktop #2 - Fanless Nettop/torrent machine
Laptop - mobile gaming/torrent machine
Tablet - Pure news and coupon stuff

In my household, I find that the desktop is mostly for my entertainment needs while a laptop is for school/internet/shopping needs. I mainly use my tablet to quickly peruse through mail, news, and other tactile needs. Ever since I bought my tablet, I did notice that my laptop usage did go down.  However, there are some things that don't handle well in web browsing on a tablet than it does on a laptop/desktop.  Nor do I want to download huge files to a tablet since space and writing speeds on a tablet is not that great.

I usually prefer a desktop in contrast to a tablet/smartphone for entertainment needs for the fact that a desktop can be easily upgraded to fit the bill.

Now if tablets can transcribe my thoughts and do what I want before me saying it, then I'll buy one any day.

#13 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What System Do You Have For Naming Your Devices? » 2013-04-14 23:57:31

I usually name my devices for the function they provide such as "HTPC" or "Printer".  Otherwise, I would normally name them after characters or nicknames from The Big Lebowski, such as Goldbricker.

#14 Re: CrunchBang Talk » When is testing more stable than stable (if ever)? » 2013-04-10 03:14:03

Wouldn't running a server on sid just require more frequent updates? I'm sure it would be "safer" than the debian squeeze server, but not recommended for the forgetful.

#15 Re: Artwork & Screenshots » April 2013 Screenshot Thread » 2013-04-09 15:48:08

Nice scrot! I like the totoro and the wallpaper  smile DId you compile the totoro yourself?
Anyway, it's been a long time, but I finally came back to my linux machine. Here's my current scrot of the new distro I'm testing out. Still learning how the lxdm configs work.


Whoa! Haven't seen you around for a long while. big_smile Welcome back!

#16 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Free Linux Books » 2013-02-21 15:14:56

Thanks for the links! This will surely help me grasp the internals of command line.

#17 Re: Artwork & Screenshots » January 2013 Screenshot Thread » 2013-01-24 19:21:24

Win8 shot

Been test running windows 8 and I'd have to say I like it a lot more than 7, although spinning my own debian is still the best way to go.

I could have sworn I saw a previous CLI thread list floating around the forums...

#20 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » What first brought you to Linux? » 2012-12-21 02:45:23

Recommendation from high school friend back in the early 2000's. Tried it once, went back to Windows. Got bored of Windows around 2008.  Confronted with fork in the road about whether to reinstall windows to fix a bloated system or start clean with Linux. With the help of this community, I was able to live on Linux and make some new friends.

That's the Cliff Notes of my adventure thus far.

Microsoft should have included the option to disable the Start Screen if you don't want it.  It only makes sense for tablets/touchscreens/mobile phones.  Even then, I'm not sure it's the best interface for such devices.

I wonder if the third party shells you referenced will work on Windows 8.

I am pretty sure the option to disable the start screen would hurt microsoft, since it would not blend in with the rest of the Microsoft ecosystem (Xbox 360 dashboard, the Windows phone, MS store, and all of those online MS apps).  As for the other question, I doubt there would be any issues running a different shell within windows 8 as it will replace the Explorer shell - not the start screen page/apps interface.

I was under the impression that AMD strives to be more efficient than Intel, unless there is something I'm missing. Hopefully it is not from subjective data but objective data.

#25 Re: Off Topic / General Chat » Luakit » 2012-12-03 16:16:27

I don't think I have used any plugins, except for maybe noscript or adblock.  However, luakit has been eating 65% of my cpu usage whenever I open the google voice page and I'm not sure why.
