If you install Arch and Openbox on it, rest is not that hard. It is a question of copy & paste files.

Anaconda... Completely agree. Started using #! ever since Corenominal released it, registered to query my first problem in '09. It's still my workhorse distro - Windows is only virtualized - only used for third party assignments. Best creator, best distro, best forum, best successor (as I'm sure BL will be) ... bar none.

In the beginning there were 2 "desktop" sessions, Openbox and Xfce. The Openbox session has no desktop per se, only helpers; Tint2 and menu. How long would you keep on looking at "the desktop" while working or playing? It is the app you are interested on, and "the desktop" stays underneath. You can call the menu from the Tint2 panel or from a hotcorner. The "original" menu was there to help you to install some apps, and after that you can change it to your liking.

After posting this screeny, http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 42#p440242 I kept on thinking about why #! was always spartan in looks. I am glad that I made the Jessie install look like Waldorf. All the #! scripts, redone to suit Systemd, are activated and working in it and gets dist-upgraded time to time. It is going to stay in that partition in the vanilla state. One day, a live iso would be created from it.

There are still some sites, where you can download #! Waldorf, but you might not want it as the kernel is 3.2. You can, of course, upgrade it to the present Wheezy state within an hour. You'd have to delete the Crunchbang repos from your sources.list. You can also upgrade it to Jessie after, bit tricky, but can be done.

The Stretch install is the working one and has moved beyond #! Waldorf look, but kept the simple 145x145 pixels tile for the "wallpaper." I have also 2 more installs, Arch & Ubuntu 15.10 with the same looks. Sometimes I'd add a wallpaper, just for fun, but would go back to the tile. All this happened because of the original Crunchbang. Thanks again!

Back on topic, thank you for all you've given us, Ahab Goodbottom.

It is an end of an era.
I always mistake Philip's name with David. I am sure, everyone knew, who I was thinking about.
This also tells me that I should keep Crunchbang Waldorf alive on Jessie, and on Stretch.

I notice that the packages.crunchbang.org and crunchbang downloads are no more, pointing to an end of an era.

I have two #! installs pointing to Jessie and Stretch. I had to change only one script, the logout. I don't have the need for other scripts, except cb-include, but I still keep all of them in /usr/bin for the memory. Later, I placed logout into the menu itself.

The #! Jessie install looks just like Waldorf, wallpaper, menu, conky etc, and it is going to stay there that way. Its been dist-upgraded from time to time. http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 42#p440242

Can't find Arc theme on Openbox. Would you be creating one?
You are using Nautilus. How do you find working without the menu?

This is Ubuntu 15.10 with the #! look. To get the look, no BL script was used. Dist-upgraded few minutes ago.

It could work but doesn't have to; the script will warn you but you can continue.

Note that none of the actual BL stuff has been tested on Ubuntu systems, so breakage of the packages themselves might still happen.

I had made Ubuntu 15.10 with Openbox that looks exactly same as #!, and also with Arch quite a long ago. I had a discusiion sometime ago about how to install Debian Testing using John's netinstall script. John pointed me to some more links, which also helped. I am using Testing, not Jessie in my Debian install. Even though I have looked into all BL Openbox scripts, I had only used #! scripts and changed them to suit SystemD.  Its all about Conky, Tint2 and some Compton stuff.

Maybe we should have a look in Distrowatch today about Semplice Workstation. It is based on Jessie 8.2 and Openbox. It has an interesting DE called Vera. They say, Vera is a plugin-based, GTK+3 Desktop Environment. In Vera, Openbox is a plugin. You might find some info here; http://semplice-linux.org/blog

Fantastic Settings. Write on the screen would open the menu. There is also an Openbox menu. Kernel 4.1.7
Terminal Roxterm, PCmanFMm, Abiword, Gnumeric, Mirage, Pragha, Synaptic etc. UEFI enabled. All in a 662MB live CD.

@ damo. I didn't think you'd go that far...

Do you use a multi-monitor setup, with plenty of desktop space? Do you enjoy playing with your setup, having fun with it? Dragging a useful conky to where you want can be very handy.

No, I don't. And, don't correct the problem, that is, if there is a problem. Let's play with conkys.

@ Sector11. I know you love conkys, so let it be.  smile

You know it doesn't, so why ask the question?

Moving the conkys around by pushing down Alt key for the session has no real value, if you are going to logout at the end, so you  shouldn't open more conkys at the same time. You can get all the info from Htop. Conky is not a marketing/selling point. Most of the time, the conky is under a window--you are working--you don't see it.

i care to disagree.
i've not been "playing with my conkys" for a while now, but i rather consider them important utilities. at a glance, i know what the weather will be like today, or if my cpu is on overload, and which process is taking so much.
not unimportant, imho.

Just a question. What is going to happen to these forums once we move to B^L forums? Because there're a lot of interesting and valuable information on these forums...

I suppose, if the old members would join the new BL forum, and the new guys would join in, questions would be asked, answers given and with luck the new BL forum would grow. Crunchbang had been abandoned and there might be very few users of the old crunchbang. BL is new and different, so it should go on its way. BL would also change its look and evolve into a separate distro. smile

#24 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Don't run all conkys » 2015-09-11 04:41:24

Conky is not an important thing. It is just something we can play with. That's what we have been doing most of the times with old crunchbang, and trying to rearrange the way Tint2 looked. Anyway, I am using Compton too. All that you wrote is true, you can move the conkys etc, but for the session. Would the conky rewrite itself to the new place in
