really useful resource indeed ,, , I'm sure I would try this soon..

as far I understand, debian 8 is now using systemd by default, do you have any concern or opinion on how remove it in case somebody prefer to preserve and old-style #! enviroment ? this, for example, is advice to be a real way to do it well: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 49#p435249


that seems the only option to rid oneself of systemD if they decide to keep Debian / openbox / #! running on their PC's. I personally have never tried it.

not trying to sponsor a different "type" of GNU/Linux.  but I've instead moved to Slackware and VOidLinUx who's init system called runit. Written by VoidLinux. Slackware does not use systemD either. With them you have to compile and install deps and apps, where Void Linux is a completely stripped down system. after install you only have the OS, and DE and some basic tools needed to get around inside of it and internet and nothing else. you have to install everything else that you want inside of it. by a system similar to apt-get, I am using i3 as a Wm. Openbox one needs to their know to's.

but if one cannot afford to start over due to time consumption finding all of their custom scripts and trying to remember everything they did to customize their system. then try to save that too. having to remember where it goes after they have installed a fresh system. that is why I did what I did with this post, so one can move into ver 8 without having to lose everything and start from scratch again.

as far as systemD -- I'm no longer having to deal with it, so I do not worry about it. @Head_On_a_Stick (HOaS) seems to understand that system from what he has read up on, if he is experimenting with the two just so he can gain knowledge of it to then share with it others I do not know, you'd have to ask him.

**Edit** I attempted to restart tint2, and the same errors popped up, so I'm guessing it has to do with that?

**Further Edit** Nevermind, I purged tint2, and it all worked proper. My apologies. -_-

Compiling network-manager-applet-1.0.4 or lesser
I've already added some of the files it tells me it is missing, then run ./configue again to run into this.

No package 'NetworkManager' found
No package 'libnm-glib' found
No package 'libnm-util' found
No package 'libnm-glib-vpn' found

it is not getting trhough the installing of all of this that is stopping me from doing it. it is the I do not want to install all of this, especailly NetworkManager >= 1.0.0 Because I do not want to run into conflicts and have this  NetworkManager >= 1.0.0 mess up my already working WIFI -- that only logs onto Google Starbucks because I set it up to do so during install.

Because I like having that applet up on my status bar so I can see what is going on at a glance, and if need be I can change the SSID on a click's notice.

I would not make mention of this in here but becuase it is happneing again, this has to be a grub2 thing and not a linux distro thing. I have grub2 when I choose to reboot. when it cycles back to the part where it is suppse to show on the screen that grub is starting up it just hangs with a white mark on the left side of the screen, and that's it.

I was having this same problem with Debain and grub2 and I am now experiencing the very same thing with Void and grub2.

# grub-install -v
grub-install (GRUB) 2.00

does anyone know what might cause this and how to rectify it?

^ Dumb wm? lol but that is just me guessing ... though perhaps you can satisfy my thoughts on window ownership if it is set to own window type it makes it its own window therefore it will be as if it is a window (duha) so to get it to stop from tiliting it needs to be made not part of the windowing system so setting it false should do the trick?

Your English is pretty fine, mine is worse in some cases HaHa!


well thier is always Virtual Box I got mine stuffed with Distros. the good part is you can halt it in the state it is in then pick it up later when you have time to run it. and still do things with your current Distor while its installing.

I installed RedArch that way. it was taking hours to download I had to shut it down then started up again the next day to finish it installing. the thing I was wondering about it'd drop the hook up to the sight and lose everything having to start over. nope it just started up  like I never shut it down. lost one file so I tried it again just to see what I could see.

I just stopped it between mid points of finishing up one and just before it started another one.

if you get it take the one off of Orcle websight

^Void Linux apparently have somewhat less packages installed, that's good smile

Your dwm looks fine on Void, mine on Debian seemed more or less like this gap It can be fixed but i jumped happy to spectrwm.

yes their install in very sparce. 412 packages at the time of that screenshot. which is good really. leaving it to where one then can install only what is needed for use. as I did have to install some "basic" items I think should already be instelled on every Linux. Things like just about everything having to do with compiling and installing C and C++ code. I did have to install a few items. but the install was super fast. I'm on it right now. and its nice. even though I am in E19.5 right now.

I did just do a copy my whole dwm directry off my Slackware account to aleave having to recode everything again. hehe saved a lot time. just had to installe some libs that support it and MAKE. then Xzema wide screen even thuogh I am not using it it is in the code to make it look for it and I was too lazy to mod the code so typing the install it was easier at the time. so that is what I did. smile

between i3 and dwm using both depending on user log in. them keyboard short cuts are not all the same. still got to sync them between the two. Leanring how to and reamambing what key I made do what to get all of them synced together, too much work for me right now. color me lazy roll

so another titling wm not right now. E19.5 has a titling setup too I am using but what little time I've taken to find out it default settings how to change them because right now its all one way or the other, or floating. not really stacking them like dwm or i3 even. they all get squshed together the more I open making it hard to see them.

the setting our not typed it, but menuselected and E is confuing at times in everything it does in how to set it up.


I just like the look and animations, getting in to the guts of making it do things no other wm or de can do can turn into being  daunting.

other then that the install is super easy and its rather fast and I'm up to --> Packages: 458

try it you might like it.

PS that gap is what at least a letter or two depenting on font size? need to get that fixed asap mister. put away your toyes and get to work, wm hopping to advoied fixing things is no way to behave tongue lol

My english grammer sucks lol -- ever have them days where your brain say one thing and your fingers type what ever they want? lol
