#1 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED] How to remove Ubuntu ppa from the repositories. » 2014-10-11 14:24:40

I thought i should post my solution to this, in easy terms:

1) Open Synaptic Package Manager (Right Click >> System >> Synaptic...).
2) Inside Synaptic, open Settings >> Repositories.  A window will pop.
3) Select the "Other Software" tab, then uncheck everything that mentions Ubuntu  smile
4) Close the window, click Reload.  End of story.

Hi guys, when i run sudo apt-get update i get this response, right at the end:

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/linrunner/tlp/ubuntu/dists/wheezy/main/source/Sources  404  Not Found

W: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/linrunner/tlp/ubuntu/dists/wheezy/main/binary-i386/Packages  404  Not Found

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Can someone explain to me if this is a serious problem? What is the cause of this?

Thanks in advance!

Edit: I found this possible solution on the web:This link., i wonder if this is still the best way to solve the issue?

Edit 2: I changed the title of the post, i hope its okay.  I think its clearer now.

Oh, how i`ve missed you, Crunchbang.  I am reinstalling you today, once again, after 2 months of bloathed desktops, icons, wifi card not being recognized, web browser freezing (go to hell, Chromium), sound coming out of the laptop speakers instead of HDMI, Arch fanboys giving me hell, long boot times, long reaction times, and many other things i just want to forget.

Sorry for leaving you Crunchbang.  Tonight, i am home.

#4 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED] How to activate the swap partition on startup. » 2014-08-03 12:48:03

PROBLEM SOLVED !!!!!

This is how i did it (i will post a step by step so that other noobs, such as me, may find it useful):

1) First of all, the Swap Partition was already created (i did it during the Crunchbang installation process).  In my case it was identified as "sda5".

2) I ran blkid in the terminal, which gave me the UUID of my swap partition (in my case, 11ac0689-999e-42c9-a71f-47a3b84f95fd), i copied that code into the clipboard*.

3) I edited the /etc/fstab file with a text editor.  In my case, i had to open it as root in order to edit that file.  What i pasted in the /etc/fstab file is this:

UUID=11ac0689-999e-42c9-a71f-47a3b84f95fd   none     swap    sw        0       0

4) I opened the terminal and ran:

sudo mount -a

5) Rebooted.  Problem solved, the swap partition is active.

Many thanks to @Head_on_a_Stick and @damo for their help.

* An alternative to getting the UUID is this: Open GParted > right click on the linux-swap partition > Information.

#5 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED] How to activate the swap partition on startup. » 2014-08-02 21:47:29

Ok, so i tried

sudo mkswap /dev/sda5
sudo swapon /dev/sda5

in the terminal, and it worked fine.  Next step, i pasted this in the autostart.sh file, rebooted, but nothing happened.  Am i doing something wrong?

Also, the etc/fstab file has this:

UUID=3a1fa15e-6c2e-4371-b3b1-cfa6a7d4e01b /               ext4    errors=remount-ro 0       1
/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto     0       0

What's wrong? What do i do?

Hello guys, i was wondering if you can help me set up the swap partition so it is activated on startup.

When i boot the computer, the swap partition is not "activated" (i'm sorry if this is not the correct term), as you can see HERE.

In order to activate it, i do Right Click > System > GParted, where THIS is displayed.  Then i right click on "linux-swap", and click on "Swapon".  After that, the swap is active.

Can anybody help me automate this at startup?

Thanks in advance... i'm kind of a noob so please be gentle!  big_smile

#7 Re: CrunchBang Talk » What media player do you use? » 2014-07-07 00:04:07

Vlc for video.  Audacious for music (it only uses 6Mb RAM).

I wonder if that could be done with a 'pipemenu' itself, that has two options "Activate|Deactivate", so the menu is always there and when activated it pops up a zenity/yad box with options on what to name it and where  to put in in your menu.

I'm not a coder - just an idea guy.

From one idea guy to another... i sense this is an interesting approach.

It was always about playing .xspf files with the less RAM possible... but then people started posting their favourite players regardless of that variable  big_smile

Its all good, its great when people share their favourite programs with others.

#15 Re: Feedback & Suggestions » An idea on the whole "Openbox Menu not being auto-updating" thing. » 2014-04-24 10:20:15

Guys, my suggestion was not that #! should offer auto-updating menus, which i think is something that deviates from what we all love about #!

My suggestion was a newb-tailored GUI menu editor that would pop up every time you installed a program, unless you deactivate this option.

Just for internet radio, try radiotray

Radiotray cant play .xspf files and it uses 14Mb RAM.

So the ranking remains:
1) mpd + ncmpcpp (2-3Mb RAM).
2) Audacious (6Mb RAM used while playing .xspf files)

I think i need to change the title of the post, people are posting without reading the OP... i specifically needed something to play .xspf files, but somehow this is turning into something else  big_smile

#17 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Which is the less RAM consuming Audio Player? » 2014-04-22 10:17:53

@porkpiehat

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: So i ended trying Clementine, VlC, and Audacious.

Their RAM usage, while playing a .xspf file, is as follows:
VLC - 8 Mb
Clementine - 30 Mb
Audacious - 6 Mb

Thanks to all for your replies.

#18 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Which is the less RAM consuming Audio Player? » 2014-04-21 19:32:32

Guys, the mpd + ncmpcpp combo was definitely the lightest audio player i have seen.  RAM consumption: less than 10 Mb.

Unfortunately, setting up the program + libraries proved to be a task too big for my limited knowledge.

I have failed you.

#19 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Which is the less RAM consuming Audio Player? » 2014-04-21 16:04:30

Thank you both, for your suggestions.  I'll try mpd and tell you how it goes.

Which audio players have you tried yet?

So far, i've only tried VLC.  It uses 75Mb RAM while i listen to online radios.

Edit: I measured wrong, it only uses 8Mb RAM, as i posted afterwards.

Hello,

Can you guys tell me which is the Media Player AUDIO PLAYER with the least amount of RAM usage? It has to work well in Crunbang, of course.  Also, it must be able to open .xspf files.

Thanks in advance.

PS: I don't care if it can't play videos, all i want is a program where i can listen to my online radios, which are saved in a .xspf file, as i said.

Edit: i meant Audio Player.  I changed the title of the post.

#22 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [SOLVED] How to set spanish keyboard. » 2014-04-20 22:11:45

Anyway, i found the solution and i thought i should post it here.  Right click > Settings > Openbox > Edit autostart

Then i pasted this code into the file:

sudo setxkbmap latam

Keep this in mind:
1) Once  #! is restarted, your keyboard will permanently be set as "Latin american keyboard".
2) For "Spanish keyboard", use sudo setxkbmap es instead.

PS: If you want to change your keyboard only for a session, and not permanently, just open the terminal and

setxkbmap latam

or

setxkbmap es

Enjoy.

Hello friends.

On the upper right corner there is an icon "fbxkb 0.6 - X11 Keyboard switcher".  It currently shows US as keyboard layout.  By left clicking it, it switches to GB, DE, DR and back to US again.

How do i switch my keyboard to Spanish? Thanks in advance.

and also

bash file.sh

and nothing happened.
