Thanks for the response. You answered what I was asking for the most part. I know how to uninstall and install programs and all that, I guess I was asking if there was a simple way of removing some or all of the installed interface related programs like Nitrogen, tint, etc. to install alternatives more easily. I was refering to the way Openbox is when you first install it on another distribution like Debian or Ubuntu Minimal.

Anyway, I like Crunchbang very much, just I would like to swap out some of the interface related stuff like the wallpaper manager, the tray, etc.


#7 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Lubuntu or Crunchbang? » 2013-10-15 12:01:30

I question how unbiased the answers your getting really are, considering where you are asking this question. That said, Crunchbang all the way. I've tried them both and Lubuntu just pales in comparison. Crunchbang is faster, it looks nicer, it works far better on older hardware, in my opinion Openbox is easier to work with than (LXDE innit?) and is far more efficient, it's minimalist which in turn allows for a greater degree of customization and choice. Over all I really don't think it's a competition so much as it is one utterly destroying the other in ever imaginable respect.

I highly recommend Crunchbang to say the least.

#8 Re: CrunchBang Talk » Why do you use #!Crunchbang » 2013-10-15 11:55:12

I use it because I like it's speed and minimalism. I like how streamlined everything is. In my experience with Linux it is probably the greatest Debian based distribution and is a contender for my favorite distribution of all time. Not to mention I'm saying all this when just a few weeks ago, I was trying #! for the first time. I'm really glad that I decided to install this and I think it will be my main operating system for some time to come.

Is there an easy way of stripping down Openbox to it's original defaults like just the blank screen you get when installing Openbox on your own on any other distro? Like getting rid of Nitrogen, the default panel, everything so that you can install your own alternatives? Thanks in advance.

This is something I am noticing as well, it's great.

Hello. I've used Linux for a while, mostly Fedora/RHEL and Slackware, but I decided to give a debian based distribution a go, and this seemed like a good one. So far I'm enjoying it. Still setting up everything at the moment, but so far so good.
