Hey Damo so I'm just wondering what ever happen to the two test beakers in a hash mark logo design?


I think that the bunsen flame looks really good and minimalist but the beakers were really cool too. Can we get some wallpapers with the beakers? Please please please?

Because it writes the temporary file as a new file, it will get the permissions and other metadata (eg execute) of a new file, not those of the old file.

I suspect you are editing files owned by root, and setting atomic_file_saving to true allows geany to change the ownership to your user. (I tested this, and I was not able to save a file owned by root until I set atomic_file_saving.)

So -- what are the answers to the questions HoaS asked?

I don't know if that is what was causing it or not. I know that several times while I was editting conkys located in the same folder that the rest of the conkys are located it wouldn't allow me to save them.

Post the exact error message.

Can you edit the files with nano?

Yes I can edit just fine with nano. I would of posted the exact message but I have already made the changes... It just said that I didn't have permissions to save on about half of the files that I opened with it. It also said something about truncating the file. I haven't used geany much so I don't know if this is something in it or bunsen... I just thought I would say something in case it is helpful.

I kept getting a error on half the files I tried to edit in geany. Basically it said I didn't have permission to change the file. I looked around and finally found a way to get it to work, well I think it is working....

edit ~/.config/geany/geany.conf
- set use_atomic_file_saving=true
- save the file
- restart Geany

Now it seems to be working! I don't have any clue what in the heck atomic_file_saving is and it doesn't sound like something I should of made "true". Anybody know why this worked or why Its messing up in the first place?

I was just playing around but you could really do what I suggested. It should give you the most security technically, I mean that is if you actually trust the VPN you're using.

I have been working on this some and I still can't get anyway. here is the dmesg again.

I also tried to follow these steps I found.
I also tried creating  a folder in /lib/firmware/brcm/BCM20702 and installing the firmware from the link. It didn't help or I couldn't find where to place it. Either way I'm still not having much luck.

Another problem that I'm having is trying to figure out how I would even manage bluetooth support if I even got the dongles firmware to work. Do I need to install a package like blueman or something? Does Bunsen come with any native bluetooth support?

Is it normal to have to add a line that tell the autostart to remember my layout? I mean isn't that kind of a problem or is it just my ignorance?

I'm trying to figure out if this is useful feedback or just me failling or what.

Once you have adjusted the screen layout go to "Layout" → "Save As" and save the file as "layout" (or something).

You can then add this line to ~/.config/openbox/autostart

. ~/.screenlayout/

That did it!!!

Why does the code added to autostart start with a (.) period? I get that I added a script to autostart to load the layout but I don't see why the line started with a .

How can I learn more about these scripts? Should I just read more about each feature in Bunsen or should I be reading more about Linux scripts? I realize that I have gotten in over my head with Bunsen, but I really don't want to give up.

I do see though how I'm asking some pretty sorry questions. Its just I would of never figured that out by myself or by googling it.....

When I reboot my system my second screens resolution changes and my first screen reactivates itself. All of the conkys on my screen are also messed up. I have to go into the screen layout editor and adjust the settings and reload the conkys everytime I restart the computer.

( I'm testing bunsen on a old laptop that is hooked up to a VGA monitor.)

What can I do about this problem?

Everyone knows you should log into your VPN and then tunnel through TOR that way your ISP sees your on a VPN and your VPN sees your on TOR. By doing this you make your internet extremely slow and useless......  big_smile

Men make up something like 92% of serial killers and I doubt that it is caused by some disadvantage in society that is keeping women from becoming murders. … llers.html

To help connect my point you can see in the link below that studies have been conducted that show strong correlations between serial killers and politicians. The point I'm trying to make is that maybe an abundance of certain chemicals in a males body makes them more likely to do certain things in life. … llers.html … han-women/

Do you think it is possible that some women prefer to be house wives and mothers? I have known very few women that really wanted to be CEO of anything. Do you think that men and women are really exactly the same? Maybe the reason why men occupy 95% of the CEO post isn't because of the "SYSTEM". Just because you give equal opportunity to everyone doesn't mean everyone is going to equally want the same things. It is possible that no matter how you set things up women will not want to be men. However, I do think that women and men should both have equal opportunities to be or do whatever they want to do. Men can be nurses, women can be nascar drivers. I just don't think just because every job isn't 50/50 it is somehow a grave injustice....

BunsenLabs is a lot like Crunchbang on the surface but it is also extending some functionality in areas that we all thought needed improvment. For instance, @cpoakes did an excellent job scripting up an expanded update-alternatives script that allows BunsenLabs users to specify more defaults than the current Debian update-alternatives system.

The eye candy is not the only thing that has received a good polishing. A lot of under the hood stuff had to go on to make a #! like alternative that uses current Debian Jessie functionality. If you look at the way things are accomplished in #!, you will see stuff that is considered outmoded in current Debian stable. For instance, the logout script used to use dbus calls for all the different logout options. It has been updated to use current systemd calls. I don't remember specifically but I think it also can fall back to the old dbus calls if you are using the sysvinit shim.

See, we could have just made a #! clone such as so many are doing and been done with it. However, the majority of us felt like we needed to push the envelope some and see what ways we could improve on the #! experience.

To me what you're saying is that BunsenLabs basically is trying to be Crunchbang. The biggest difference between say monara, crunchbang ++, and BunsenLabs is that BL has taken the most time to make it work better with debian 8 and look better. The group doesn't seem to have any other goals.

So what would make someone want to use BunsenLabs instead of Crunchbang? I mean up until Crunchbang stops recieving security updates.

This would be priceless.

Thank you! That is exactly what I'm trying to get feedback on. BunsenLabs is trying to appeal to, well, nerds by looking awesome. If you wanted a super light-weight distro then you have several available choices. Now I'm not saying that Bunsen doesn't want to stay in the light weight, no bloatware, group. I am sure that BL wants very much to be light, just not exclusively. I would like to know if that is true. It would be nice to get some more feedback about this from the developers and the users.

What is Bunsen?

I'm trying to get a thread going that is similar to "Why do you use #!" but about Bunsen. Why use it? What is it the right choice?
