I ran the live-cd today and it looks great. It has the same look and ,above all, feel of Crunchbang Linux. Great work, guys. smile

I realize that I have been a little bit too emotional in this thread. I want to thank you, corenominal, for your hard work and dedication. It was a real pleasure using Crunchbang Linux all this time. I wish you the best.

No value????????? Every time I wake up each morning I start the computer and bless the universe that Crunchbang runs on my computer. And I get that wonderful feeling of efficiency every time I close my computer with the Windows+X combination. Smooth, silky, and above all, the system is MINE.
I have tried several distros as live-cd on my computer. Slitaz, Manjaro, Xubuntu, Fedora, Arch, Elementary etc. and I stuck to Crunchbang Linux.
My computer is a 486. Yes, that is right. A 486 with 2Gig of memory. And if I had the money, I would definitely buy a better one, but I haven't. But the things that I have been able to do because Crunchbang Linux runs so efficiently on my computer! I have edited SVG-files with Inkscape. I am able to run Blender with it. On a 486!
NO VALUE????????? I consider Crunchbang Linux my distribution and I am pissed!

#7 Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » setting wallpaper with terminal » 2014-08-25 12:54:20

The official line is:"  By default backgrounds are handled by Nitrogen, accessed through the menu under Settings –> Choose Wallpaper. Bundled wallpapers are stored in ~/images/wallpapers/shared/backgrounds although you can add your own to ~/images/wallpapers/shared and they will automatically show up in the Nitrogen selection menu."

But can I set my wallpaper with the terminal instead of the Nitrogen-gui? If so, how?

#8 CrunchBang Talk » WattOS compared to Crunchbang Linux » 2014-06-23 06:15:48

Replies: 5

I have taken a look at WattOS and my reaction was: WTF! I thought it was Ubuntu-based but then I read:"
The wattOS team is pleased to announce the release of the new version of wattOS - Release 8 - (also known as R8). After 5 years being an Ubuntu based distro, we have made the change to Debian. Specifically Debian Wheezy as the base, with some backports thrown in (for example a newer Kernel), and in a couple of small places a little Jessie where warranted. But for the most part, its Debian Wheezy as a base to build from. "
Can somebody see any difference between the two operating systems apart from the fact that they use slightly different softwarepackages?

Is the ethernetcard attached? Is your ISP down? Firewall blocking your traffic?

Maybe not relevant for this discussion, but i received the message in the browser that google-chrome was not supported for the OS-version that I was using (statler). When the new Debian was released, google apparently stopped supporting google-chrome for the older versions of Debian.

Something went wrong with the installment, I think. I installed Crunchbang Linux for older PC's (waldorf). That one function didn't work.

Next day, Xorg didn't start. Rebooted again, and it didn't start. I decided to reinstall with Crunchbang Linux for Modern PC's. Now everything works as it should be.

Thanks for your reply.

The title says it.  "File/Close all windows" doens't work. Neither does the shortcut: SHIFT+CTRL+W.

Btw, I just installed Waldorf.

I tried to find anything about it on the internet but I came back empty.

#19 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Installing perlbrew » 2013-04-10 16:25:03

Have done some thinking of myself.  big_smile  Of course it is a bash script.

~/perl5/perlbrew/bin/perlbrew works in the terminal

A soft link to /usr/bin/ should do the trick. But if anyone could find out why the instructions of the program itself doesn't work, I would be much obliged.

#20 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Installing perlbrew » 2013-04-10 13:25:35

Is the file a bash-script? So,  #!/bin/bash at the beginning? and sudo chmod +x [file] in the terminal afterwards?

#21 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Installing perlbrew » 2013-04-10 12:52:22

Done: ALT+PRNTSCREEN+K. Opened a terminal. Run perlbrew. None.

bash: perlbrew: command not found

I did. Added:
source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc to it.
Then I ran perlbrew.

ecmporter@peek:~$ perlbrew
bash: perlbrew: command not found

And it failed.

Trying to gain some insight in Perl, I installed perlbrew. That worked but look at the message during installation:

## Download the latest perlbrew

## Installing perlbrew
perlbrew is installed: ~/perl5/perlbrew/bin/perlbrew

perlbrew root (~/perl5/perlbrew) is initialized.

Append the following piece of code to the end of your ~/.bash_profile and start a
new shell, perlbrew should be up and fully functional from there:

    source ~/perl5/perlbrew/etc/bashrc

Simply run `perlbrew` for usage details.

Happy brewing!

## Installing patchperl

## Done.

So, I open thunar/hidden files, but the file ~/.bash_profile isn't there. Should it be there? Must I make a new file?

The only bash_profile that can be found on my system is:
