I remember when I first tried #!, it didn't quite work for me at that time, something do with repos, if I remember correctly. But I decided to give it another try because the concept really attracted me. And since then until late last year, crunchbang was my main distro. it's still my favourite distro even if I'm using Ubuntu Mate in my newer computer (OMG I went back to Ubuntu, I can't believe that). While I haven't been active here anymore, this community made me feel welcome.
Thank you Philip!
^ already thumbnail sized 8P
going back in time?
love that wallpaper!
nice to see you and pek back again
how do you get moc looking like that?
well I'm not 100% what you mean exactly, so I'll just go and guess
from my ~/.moc/config
the layout part
Layout1 = directory(0,0,100%,8):playlist(0,8,100%,FILL) Layout2 = directory(0,0,100%,100%):playlist(0,0,100%,100%) Layout3 = directory(0,0,50%,100%):playlist(50%,0,FILL,100%)
the lines around
# Use ASCII characters instead of graphic for drawing lines. This helps on # some terminals. ASCIILines = no
theme I use I found once somewhere and it's called transparent-background
also ta for welcomes everyone
I really like that background and whole look!
Ohai peeps, long time no post here
I was in somewhat wild mood and decided to try the new Debian, unfortunately installation didn't go quite the way I expected. I wasn't able to install GRUB. My wild mood had disappeared and I tried then going to back to #! (11), interestingly I ended up having same GRUB install problem with it too. I have used that iso cd previously and it had worked fine. I was definitely in need of working system so I installed #! 10. (a note my pc is rather old and if I want to do proper fresh install cd is only way to go, i have tried other ways too.). And because I wanted something bit newer I followed this http://www.garron.me/en/linux/upgrade-d … 0-7.0.html And basically it went fine.
Atm though I have couple problems, I'd susptect mostly related to root/user privileges and shits with which I'm not too familiar.
1) when I try to mount my ext hd I get this: failed to mount "da drive" Not Authorized
2) I seem to be able to connect internets only as root (using network manager). I tried this http://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Nm-applet I seem to be in netdev already and I tried the second one, I'm not quite sure if it did work or not. I'll see what happens after restart.
Update: well after I got both tint and slim upgraded things seemed to start working. It crossed in my mind I could edit the /etc/apt/preferences file and change the current pinnings from statler and squeeze to waldorf and wheezy. I also removed the statler theme of slim after which slim updated without errors.
@ElderV.LaCoste Yeah Green obviously is awesome colour but bit of new stuff occasionally is fun. Anyway purple is my second favourite colour.
@xeNULL Yes. I used this http://blog.conky.be/2009/09/15/feature … g-desktop/
I haven't used Ubuntu for couple years I think, so can't say how I exactly feel about the current distro self. I think that Canonical has some issues and they could do things differently (contributing back to the community wise), but I don't hate them. I'm quite fine with their goal (I assume it's still getting more and more peeps using Ubuntu). I hear people complaining that they have abandoned this oh so fancy "power user" group. So what? There is about zillion other distros that will give you the pain you so much need. Ubuntu is not for me but there are people for who it is.
I suppose I have to admit something. I don't like Bieber that much. I have heard one song and it was dull.
You have to add them in menu manually. Easiest way to do this is using ObMenu (it's in the menu under name GUI Menu Editor).
here is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPw-eaKdEs8 a video how to add stuff in the menu.
You can also edit the menu.xml (~/.config/openbox/menu.xml) and add programs straight in it.
