Hi again! I was just researching on news translation, and I could not help noticing that most renowned agencies tend to refresh certain news (i.e. number of casualties in Chile after the earthquake).
I was wondering how to access to the unedited versions. Perhaps somebody could give me advice on how cache is used? It'll be much appreciated.

#2 Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » Help replacing LM with #! [SOLVED] » 2015-09-19 18:06:23

Replies: 0

Hi again, I need to replace an old Linux Mint 13 with Crunchbang Waldorf (so I can track Jessie later). I'll provide some background: what I want to achieve is not only for the sake of learning, but also because LM is running on a low-end 2gb netbook of Argentina's "Conectar Igualdad" programme. In short, the LM installation is bloated and full of residual files, and live #! session runs flawlessly.

PROBLEM IS... I'm not that keen on disk partitioning, since I mostly do guided installations rather than manual (I know I'm lazy, but I'm planning to learn some day); that's why I need your help.
This netbook is dual booting Win7 and LM, and also shares /media/DATOS, through which I access my personal files in both OSs.

The partition table is exactly like this:


I must leave the /dev/sda5, or "RECU" (short for "RECUPERACIÓN", = recovery in English) partition as it is; not because I want to, but because I have to (it's part of the Conectar Igualdad's deal).

The same goes for /dev/sda7, or "DATOS".

I THINK, after some reasoning, that I need to install Crunchbang in /dev/sda1, using ext4 filesystem, and selecting / as mountpoint. The size of the partition would still be 40gb. Then, if I only want to install #! and leave everything else as it is, I should not pick a /home partition or swap.

MY QUESTIONS ARE: 1) Will this work, or am I missing something? 2) Will I be able to access my files after the installation? 3) Will Windows 7 mess with the process anyhow?

As always, thank you all for your time.

EDIT: There are many, many posts out there in sites such as and the like, but I can't completely rely on my understanding of that information hmm .

EDIT2: The whole process was as deleting sda1 and installing everything in there.

You mods had proven to be the kindest people of the internet, and you've even kept the same high spirits for the years I've been lurking + asking stupid questions here. This stranger would like to congratulate you bunch of awesome strangers, keep it crunching and banging!

I'll give both iptux and Bonjour a try for a week and then comment on my experience. Thanks one more time.

EDIT: Well, I never really got to use Bonjour since iptux was just what I needed: a simple user-to-user chat within my home. And file sharing does it work, too. Easy as it sounds.

Hi again, long time no see! The reason I write is because I'd like a graphical instant messaging client to chat (and hopefully share files) with my gf's Linux Mint netbook. I've reciently got to know of an app named BeeBeep,  but it seems to be available for 64bit systems only (by the way, you must have deduced I'm running 32bit #!).
Does anyone know if there's something similar to this application? Thanks in advance!

EDIT: typo

This is the original Waldorf theme, with the gtk-3-theme from Bunsen. Try it.

I tried, but I think it isn't very similar to the original waldorf... I'll stick to the classy crunchy-dark.

Thank you for being the best forum ever!
And excuse me for being unbelievably stupid  8o

[edit]: I drowned in a glass of water, and also had a different concept of scrot command, I didn't expect it to be so simple... my apologies.

Nice, but no. I handle an insane number of graphics and charts every day, I just cannot afford cropping every single one manually.

Then crop directly in mirage.  big_smile

It would be a good workaround if I didn't handle tons of graphics every day. xfce's scrot has been, by far, the best tool I've encountered, it saves a lot of my time. I just want to understand what's wrong with it and see if it could be fixed.

Hi again, this time I got an issue with xfce4-screenshooter as I said. It works OK with the whole screen and the active window, but there's a problem when I select an area. This is a picture of a page in LO, which is supposed to be white as snow.


Hope you guys (and gals) can give me a hint. TIA!

#13 Re: Help & Support (Beginners) » Lost #! visual style when upgraded to Jessie » 2015-06-16 19:41:14

Well, so far I've only had luck with Deadbeef. Network Manager applet is reluctant to changes  mad

EDIT: Everything fixed when I installed Bunsen's crunchy-dark theme, so I'll label this post as "solved". Thank you for bearing with my ignorance once again!

#14 Re: Help & Support (Beginners) » Lost #! visual style when upgraded to Jessie » 2015-06-16 18:28:53

Are you still using the waldorf tint2? Remove it and install from the jessie repo.

No, I was aware of that... I purged #!'s tint2 before dist-upgrading.

So... can I change GTK theme with lxappearance/obconf? I'll try BL instead.

Hi everyone, let me tell you my story. A couple of days ago I took the plunge and upgraded #! to Jessie from a clean install. This is the first time I upgraded my distro to a newer version, so I didn't know exactly what to expect, though I'd read several posts on this operation.
Anyway, I uncommented crunchbang repo from sources.list (AFAIK they're offline), and I got pure Debian Jessie instead. First thing I had to fix was icon set, then SLiM, then switch back to Waldorf GTK theme, and last but not least recover my old tint2 configuration.
I also did "gksu lxappearance" in order to unify the theme across sudo and normal users.
Still, I have 2 problems:
1) The background of the wireless icon, clipit and volume manager have frames everywhere, like the pictures below. Before I gksu'ed lxappearance, the whole Synaptics looked the same. And hey, I also have this problem with DeaDBeeF, it doesn't look like the rest of the applications. I lost the beautiful translucid dark-grey right-click menu in Thunar too, which is just grey now... could all this be related?


2) I can't say I like what some apps look like (eg. evince). Is there a way to make 'em look like the rest? Here's what I mean...


Everything else is working properly, any guidance? I will appreciate.

TIA awesome people.

PS: I'm loving Bunsen Labs look and feel already, but I want my Debian to look like Crunchbang some more time.

Thanks tknomanzr!, I was reading the wrong posts. I managed to solve this issue with mountpy command.
And, Head_on_a_Stick  since no one else uses this laptop but me, and the drive is plugged in most of the times, I'll follow your advice.
Thank you guys, you are great!

Hi all, I followed the steps and I almost everything did ok. What went wrong is that Thunar doesn't recognize my Seagate Expansion Drive no more. Has this happened to anyone of you guys?

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I browsed /media/Seagate Expansion Drive and got "Permission Denied", popup (the folder icon has the "X" emblem). T.I.A.

Hi all, sorry for waking up the dead post, but I just took up DreamChess since I really got to train (IRL partner keeps telling me 'my son'). Anyone care for a match? I don't mind the platform, anything could do. I'll be around.

#19 Re: News & Announcements » The end. » 2015-02-07 18:20:05

Crunchbang = 'happy days'

Will never forget.

@corenominal: good luck in all your quests, and thanks for the big time

Nevertheles, the site you posted looks pretty juicy.

Hey, I also found this vendor who ships floppy disks with software. I'd like to try n install System 7.5.3.

@pvsage Any place where I could start diggin'? I'd really like to get this thing working.

Pink Flamingos. Heh. I don't understand the appeal of that film or where others perceive the entertainment value.

I like it as a rariety. In fact, what I enjoy most is the exaggerated theatricalness of the Dreamlanders. And John Waters was not a teaser, he was provocative all the way, and I think what I like most about it is that he always tried to take that further. Complicated mind, indeed, but it's all about entertainment in the end. There are not many actors/directors like those at this latitude.
